The plates are small, but the flavors are exquisite!! We started with the gruyere croquettes which melted in your mouth. The Gem salad was wonderful! The scallops were yummy and the chocolate souffle was perfect!!

For the past 17 years our family has had our Christmas Eve dinner at a local restaurant, we always select one we've never tried before. This year the restaurant we all selected was not available, so I randomly picked Noisette, as I had recently driven by it. They served a special seven course meal that was incredible. The restaurant setting... More

Family owned, and the family is very friendly and knowledgeable. A diner has a choice of either a 10-course or 6-course tasting menu. We chose the 6, and were completely satisfied. The food was very well presented, and the taste? Ooh la la good.

Ended our vacation in Portland with the best treat; Noisette is an amazing dining experience. Superior service and a tasting menu fit for the most discerning foodies. The staff graciously accommodated a food allergy and made a substitution for one of the courses. The dining room is a nice size and gives the feeling of being at a dinner party... More

My wife and I ate at Noisette this last Saturday evening. We had the tasting menu. It was just wonderful. The staff were very knowledgeable, helpful and never intrusive. Despite the fact that the restaurant is not large, it never felt crowded. We were shocked to realize we spent three hours. We can't wait to go back.

My partner and I went to Noisette for our anniversary recently. It was our first time there and we both loved it. It is a great little restaurant, with excellent food, a charming atmosphere, and attentive service. All around, the restaurant skips the usual Portland hipster gimmicks and goes for a more formal experience. Severs in suits, no wood benches... More

Don't be scared away because of the odd location. This was a memorable meal! The Tasting menu is the only way to go! The Sommeliers are some of the best in Portland! Although we brought our own bottle, the list is well thought out with many fairly prices gems! Can't wait to return!

Sat outside on a fantastic Portland night. All three of us chose the tasting menu. Well, it was more like a binging menu. OMG it was fantastic. We expected bites, not fantastic demi portions. And for $85 it was an astonishing value. Also, the fact that three servers delivered each course with th female in our party being served almost... More

While the ambience is soothing, and the food was great, we were still disappointed. The food tasted wonderful, and the service was special, but the portions were less than tapas-sized. We had a lobster cold plate that offered 4 small bites, and the cost was $30! Our bill for 2 warm and 2 cold plate, (all tiny portions) and one... More

The tasting menu and passion of the kitchen team were amazing. This was literally the best French, or any meal I have had in years. The staff were incredible and their passion and warmth shone the whole evening. The wine pairings were perfection and explanations magnificent. Incredible!
