Amazing dinner. From the greeting at the door to the food and drinks. It was an amazing night. We had mainly had the specials of the evening. Waitstaff was amazing. Shout out to Spencer! Thank you.

They specialize in local food and everything is very fresh. The seafood stew was Brazilian-style and more spicy than most. Order carefully if you don't like spicy food. Lamb and merguez were excellent. The wine list is especially strong on Oregon wines, as you would expect, with a good range of prices. We had a wonderful Shea pinot noir. The... More

Fantastic food.. farm to table type restaurant. Excellent Service. Great menu... wonderful meal. There is a white table restaurant in front and a more casual bar area to dine in the rear of the restaurant. Go try it!

Higgins is a great "in town" restaurant. The food is always good and the atmosphere is confortable and has an enjoyable "buzz". We usually choose Higgins when we are in town for theater or a concert. Although it maintains an air of sophication, it feels like coming home. If you are not in the mood for a big meal, their... More

We were invited by some friends to go to Higgins. Even though it's been a Portland Landmark for many years, we somehow have missed it. The food was wonderful and a little different from your ordinary menu. We had steak, seafood, and a german specialty dish. All were wonderfully cooked with great taste. Service was also excellent. We will come... More

Have not been in a number of years ... the good & bad it that is was about the same ... not exciting not boring ... just fine. For Chef as talented as Greg the menu seems limited the attitude and service was great ... I might await a new menu venue to return ... but for those who have... More

I had a steak and it was excellent. So flavorful and well prepared. I felt a little sorry for the solitary couple dining in the same room with a big group. It is a small restaurant and will get noisy so this is not the place for you if you are looking for an intimate dinner.

Higgins seems to have been around forever. It is one of the most, if not the most, consistently good restaurants in Portland. We always gravitate back to it because you can count on the quality. It is a little pricey, but when the fare is that good you don't mind. I don't think you can find a better restaurant in... More

Who knew at a late lunch I would find the best hamburger I have ever had -- great service, with a wonderful salad and bread with olive oil.

In town last week on business and attended a large group dinner at Higgins. We had a set menu with appetizers, choice of entree and dessert. I had the NY strip which was cooked perfectly!! Also had the creme brulee, which was served cold, although very tasty! My friend had the ahi tuna...she literally gasped when she bit into..it was... More
