We dined here Friday night, April 17 when we found ourselves in Portland unexpectedly. A friend had raved about it to me a year ago so I always thought next time we are in Portland, we will go. We couldn't get reservations until 9:30 but were kindly informed they don't book the whole restaurant and walk-ins were welcome. We arrived... More

There are many great qualities inside this this adorable restaurant. Exceptional dining waiting for you! We started off with the Roasted Bone Marrow that was melt in your mouth (literally). It had the consistency of a heavy butter but this savory, salty hard to find dish spreads over the grilled flat bread with ease. Being the first time either of... More

Let's face it, Little Bird is amazing! There are so many reasons to make a reservation at Little Bird and absolutely no reasons not to. The menu is creative, the food delicious, and the staff is 100% dedicated to your complete satisfaction. Because Little Bird seems to want to bring their "A" game to every evening I am going to...

We arrived little before our reservation planning on having a drink at the bar. We were told they were running late and since the bar was full we had the solminier bring over a wonderful local Pinot Noir and three glasses. We had a wonderful wait! Our server was knowledgable but a bit overworked with the busy Friday evening crowd... More

This was one of the better burgers I've had. Great service, cool vibe to the restaurant. This is worthy of the high rating on tripadvisor.

i took a couple of clients here for dinner and one is a vegetarian. The service was a bit slow to begin with but our waiter was more than helpful with our entree and wine decisions. We had an unrushed dining experience. I enjoyed the Cassoulet, although it was so hot I burned the roof of my mouth. I know... More

In my opinion, The little Bird is a perfect little restaurant. Every time I go there, I am always pleased with the wine, the food, and the service.

My son and I decided to have lunch at the Little Bird Bistro because he had heard that Le Pigeon is a great restaurant for dinner. Both of us thought the food was OK, but it wasn't what we were anticipating. The service was average - not great - and for the price of the meal I think we'd probably... More

The customer service is fantastic as is the food. Yes at times it can feel like the tables are a little bit too close together, however the food and the service more than make up for it. I have to admit I have not had a lot of French food, but the friend I was with said it was some... More
