Higgins Restaurant delivered a solid meal with great flavor and a lovely glass of wine. The decor isn't anything spectacular, but carries the feel of the restaurant. The location is close to downtown - walking back to my hotel following the meal was a great way to settle. There were moments where conversation was slightly difficult due to the number... More

We visited Portland recently and our dinner at Higgins was a real standout. The a/c wasn't working that evening but we had all our reservations for the three other nights and decided to stick it out. Once the door was opened it became more bearable!! The wine list while pricey was expansive. Our server was very professional with just the... More

Service is good and there are lots of great food options. It's pricey for lunch but good for a business lunch away from the crowds, and they take reservations if you're so inclined. I had a fish dish that was very good. I was disappointed with the chocolate cake for dessert. It was very dry. Happy hour in the bar... More

Higgins has been a mainstay in my dining since it opened many years ago. It is almost impossible for a restaurant to be consistently rated at the top, but Higgins has done it. Greg and his crew continue to create marvelous dishes and to have highly efficient staff.

Friends and I went to Higgins for dinner on our last night in Portland. I'm glad we went. The food was excellent and service impeccable (thank you Meghan!). I had the salmon special which was cooked perfectly with a delightful sauce over potatoes and roasted beets. The wine list by the glass is limited but nice quality. The space is... More

Enjoyed a phenomenal piece of salmon, a Belgian beer (or two), and was guided skillfully through the unique offerings by Jason. Highly recommended.

We went for a Saturday night dinner. We both really enjoyed the service, it was very personal, the waiter went to great lengths to explain and suggest each dish. Food was really good, but not outstanding in terms of flavor. I had the Spanish Potaje, and she had the risotto (which surprisingly the waiter recommended *against* ordering, we appreciated his...

Nice feel to this restaurant. Service is impeccable and the food is excellent. I think there's something here for everyone. It's also very convenient if you're staying downtown. Just a friendly welcoming place.
