This was my first visit to Higgins and it was a good one. My wife and I split a delicious seafood bourride; my son had pasta. The salads were very good.

My wife and I were staying downtown and the hotel suggested Higgins for fresh seafood and farm to plate vegetables. We had the Salmon and Cod. My wife asked for special prep on the Cod leaving off the crust normally served. No problem. Both dishes were excellent. Very nice white tablecloth restaurant. Service was exceptional. The night we went all... More

It's been several,years since we've dined here and decided it would be perfect for pre-theatre dinner. Service was spot-on and made sure our dinner was timed to get us to,our show on time. ,our party had the risotto, ahi, and mussels-all of which were delicious.

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor we booked in for an evening meal at Higgins. The service was very good, our server was exactly the right kind of attentive and other serving staff ensured our water was always full and plates we cleaned quickly. The organic produce was undoubtedly delightful, as the local area standards are so high for such... More

Higgins is definitely one of the best restaurants in Portland. Excellent locally sourced food. In the Bistrot, you can ordered off the restaurant menu, should you want to be a bit more casual. Also, it is Open after concerts. The staff is highly professional.

Great downtown restaurant for business or friends for dinner. Not so much for couples. Menu is limited, but food is well prepared and appealing. Good wine list and excellent wait staff. The sampler tray of meats for an appetizer was really tasty and good variety for all to enjoy. The table had steaks and salmon all really well prepared and... More

We came here with a large party for a graduation dinner. We had 1 server who had the classic rude, off-standish, aloof demeanor. He definitely concentrated on serving the area of the table that was going to write the check. I did not get my drink ordered until after the appetizers. Also, he didn't notice to refill waters or bread... More

Just a few blocks walk from the Heathman, made this restaurant very convenient. We split a beet panzanella salad which was incredibly fresh and dressed with a light, not oily, citrus vinaigrette. Delish! Carrot and ginger soup was very "gingery" and we loved it. Hubby loves Schnitzel and Higgin's version did not disappoint. The fingerling potatoes and veggies served with... More

I confess up front I'm not a foodie. I had the Asparagus with soubressade sausage, ricotta salata, olive oil and sherry vinegar, and a small salad. It was okay. My husband had the Bucatini pasta with spring vegetables, herbs, toasted almonds, lemon and pecorino Romano cheese. He said it was okay. I had a bite, and it definitely was so-so.... More

I prefer grass fed beef and was excited to find Higgins. One night I said to my 2 colleagues that I was going to have a burger, wine and dessert and they thought that was a great idea and did the same. It was so good that Higgins has become a weekly go-to place for us; they have strayed from... More
