The restaurant is located in a nice neighborhood in Portland and it is like coming into a friend's home through the kitchen. As you enter the stove is too your right and the stove your left. A quirky set up. From the ceiling are hanging black chandeliers. The room is very intimate. For the kitchen to serve the number of... More

This is the kind of place you have in mind when you think about great local food in Portland. DOC is small, intimate and friendly. You'll need to walk through the kitchen as you enter from the street. The menu changes every week based on what is local and fresh. But some items make regular appearances. We shared a dozen...

Very nice but quite pricy. I love the concept, entrance through the kitchen, great friendly stuff, nice wines. And the stuff knows their wines. Food was also good, some great, some just good. Will come back.

What a special evening! We stretched for the tasting menu, and we are so glad that we did. The setting is intimate, relaxed, warm, and comfortable. The service is impeccable. Dishes arrive perfectly timed, along with a perfectly matched wine. The brief explanations of dishes and wines are interesting and fun. The tasting menu lists two to five items for... More

Visited with friends for a belated birthday outing and had the most fantastic time. We opted for the tasting menu which was paired with wine and consisted of 6 courses with shared plates. I did think it was a little pricey, but that said, when I left I said to the waiter that we all had one of the most... More

There are few places in Portland where you can feel like you are in a quiet spot that no one knows about (volume in restaurants is an issue in this town, I know, I live here). This is one of them. I've gone here both in groups and with individuals. Each time the service was excellent. On one occasion we... More

The value proposition is terrible. The prices are sky high and the food is below average. The service was good.

Nothing to criticize and lots to love at this small, innovative restaurant in NE Portland. Enter through the tiny open kitchen to a warm greeting. Great wine list with many hard to find Italians and the knowledge to recommend great pairings. Fabulous and perfectly cooked pastas, lamb and more. But the piece de resistance was without question the brûléed chicken... More

I loved the 6 course tasting menu. My wife and I wound up with the oysters,bread and olives, 2 salads, 2 pasta dishes, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts for $60.....the portions were very generous for that price and the dishes were prepared to perfection. For entrees we had the king salmon fillet and the lamb chop....each excellent. Service was very... More
