Great Happy Hour

Good food, but go by 5 pm and expect LOTS of noise! I had the fish sandwich and the shrimp roll, grand total of $8.90. Service was excellent, even for three senior citizens.

Excellent service, convenient location and terrific food. This is a pricey restaurant, but you do get what you pay for.

This is a lovely restaurant with a great menu. Our reservations were for 7:45 but we got there early and were accommodated with a table right away. The food is pricey so don't expect a big meal for $35 entrees and the ala carte menu but very well prepared and elegantly presented. Wine list limited if you want to taste... More

Stopped here around 6:30 Thursday on the recommendation of The Big Pink Bus driver. Husband enjoyed the Copper River Salmon; I loved my Shaved Vegetable Salad, and the Charred Calamari appetizer which looks like a large water cress salad. Outstanding! We topped it off with a dessert which I can't find on the online menu -- something like a fruit... More

The menu was limited, food was good, prices were high. We were a party of 6, when they brought bread to the table there were 4 pieces... how does that work? I got the impression that people weren't thinking or caring, just going through the motions. Just an average experience.

Had a memorable meal at this establishment with friend visiting Portland. Started off with a couple drinks which were great and I ordered the King Cedar plank salmon and my friend ordered the Beef Medallions. My salmon portion was tasty, but small and my friend really enjoyed his dinner. Jazz band was playing in the bar and added to ambience.... More

We went here the first time before the Pink Martini Concert with the Oregon Symphony, it was a lovely atmosphere and the waitress was pleasant and helpful. The prices are average to high. We had a prime cut filet which came with a lot of fat and was over cooked, the mashed potatoes were great. We also had the special... More

We got in late (9:30) and hadn't had anything to eat. Our concierge recommended the ringside fish house and we were not disappointed. They had a small bites menu which was on their second happy hour (right when we got there) that was awesome. We had deviled eggs with smoked salmon, clam chowder, caesar sallad, and sliders. They were all... More
