Love, love, love this place!

Fantastic smoked meats, delicious bloody Marys and great service in a lovely, eclectic setting. We enjoyed our Sunday brunch here tremendously. I'm really looking forward to heading back here for dinner.

The menu is based on what is available and our group had a difficult time picking dishes that appealed to us. In short, although the ingredients were fresh and trendy the meal failed to impress or meet our expectations.The consensus was that our meals were boring and not memorable in any way. Service was good and the restaurant although small... More

Ate at Nedd Ludd with our son & his girlfriend. We all had an excellent meal; halibut with herb sauce and borage flowers, grilled trout and pork. It's not large, but has both inside and outside seating. The parking is lot is small, so park on a side street of the lot is full. We also bought excellent baked goods... More

A traditional wood-fired oven is the basis of this intimate restaurant in northeast Portland, but the wait staff is its heart. Always helpful, they add to the experience with their humor and attentiveness. Expect expert advice on the modest, but solid wine list. Recently, one of the staff introduced us to a wonderful rose of gawertztraminer made by a local... More

We stopped in after being turned away from Ox with their two hour wait. We were promptly seated and both of us had a glass of Pinot Gris. Good wine and nice atmosphere. The menu was explained to us in great detail. We took the recommended cheese and meat plate, salad, broccoli plate and the trout. The last two were... More

Very, very small place but the food was large, (in flavor and presentation) sat at the little bar and had a good time with great food. Staff was not the most friendly but had a great conversation with our kids. They cook everything in a wood fired oven. Our kids have been back a couple of times.

This is a special place with heat powered by a brick oven. The decor is wonderful. You are surrounded by wood for the fire and eat super fresh food. This is truly reflective of the Pacific Northwest. From what our helpful waiter told us, everything is prepared in-house, all the sauces and pickles and the cured meats (the bacon is... More

We were looking forward to this well reviewed restaurant for its craft food reputation...We went for brunch and ordered the migas. What was served to us consisted of scrambled eggs over cheap tortilla chips (definitely not house made) with a blob of what looked like Costco guacamole and then splashed with Tapatio! It was $14 for the tiny portion; most... More

Great I'm beyond's in this little restaurant talked off the street. I had a halibut on trade and it was one of the best I've ever had. The salad was so so fresh.

I have resisted going to this restaurant for some time now even though I live very close by. In my mind I had set it aside as just another Portland restaurant that gets a lot of attention without really delivering. Well, I finally gave in. I went on a Monday night and was a bit thrown off by the fact... More
