We went with some friends and had a good time...it is an older style place with a average food but I ate my entire portion. There is a lot of new upcoming competition in Portland and I think Higgins is one of the older places. The service, from Kevin, was great and he was super knowledgeable about the menu and... More

A lovely evening overall, This is a fairly intimate restaurant. The service was cheerful, informed and professional. The wine list has a broad range of Oregon Pinot with many strong selections across a good price range. The menu is creative without going stupid about it. Just very solid, fresh ingredients, well prepared in combinations that make sense. I would return.

looking for a light meal and stopped in to share a charcuterie platter and a board of smoked fish plus a big salad - great flavors and friendly staff - were out of the first 2 wines we ordered, but assuming just bad inventory control :)

Higgins is a bit of a throwback. They have waiters in white jackets. Whether or not that appeals to you, the food is excellent. It's one of Portland's best.

Our group had a reservation, and were seated promptly. The range of food available was good, and all appetizers and entrees were thoughtfully constructed and very delicious. Everything on the menu sounded good, and bites of all plates were eagerly shared. The service was thorough, friendly, flexible and accommodating. I have no complaints at all about this Portland institution. Very... More

Last night we dined with friends and all of us comment on the outstanding service. True to Higgins form, dinners were very local with ingredients and done to each ones request. The duck dinner looked absolutely fantastic.

Came here at the dinner hour. This is high class concierge service. Very pleasant atmosphere, and the staff wants to call you "mr." Or "miss." This isn't my favorite type of service, as it is a bit pretentious, but these were professional servers and staff. Everything we ordered was made to exact specifications, which is the mark of a high... More

A friend and I had dinner recently at Higgins, a restaurant that I've frequented with out-of-town guests for years. It was one of the early locovore restaurants in Portland, and it continues to offer the best of seasonal offerings from local providers--which means that the menu changes regularly. Greg Higgins, the part-owner and chef, never seems to run out of... More
