In Portland for Business meeting, large group of staff. Great bar! The food selection was fantastic, great value for the portions. The staff is checking to make sure all is ok. The service is above and beyond. Will be going back when in Portland

My wife and I were visiting Portland from Bend and a friend told us about Higgins. Since last night was a Friday, we made reservation before leaving Bend. Upon arriving, we were graciously greeted and seated at a comfortable table. The waiter knew each item on the menu in detail and made a good recommendation for our wine. We each... More

We have eaten here off and on for 13 years now, for lunch, dinner and in the bar and we have never been disappointed. Not with the food, the service, their knowledge, the atmosphere, nothing! Greg Higgins started the "buy local" practice that has taken over the Portland area and he knows what he's doing. The staff is knowledgeable and... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal in the bar section after a Christmas performance. Service was excellent; we were so well taken care of. The food was delicious and we will certainly be returning.

The food is great, but what I like most about Higgins is the quality of the wait staff. They are a dying breed - old-school waiters who know everything about the menu in detail and take pride in their profession. They know the wine menu in detail as well and will offer excellent advice on wine very specific pairings. I... More

I found this little gem on line. It is becoming more important for me to find urban cuisine that is not only prepared deliciously, but also from a business choice to stay with local farmers and ranchers. I am a vegetarian and my daughter is not, so finding something that would suit our needs from a menu standpoint was wonderful.... More

We went to Higgins on 12/29 for dinner with our two adult children and had a wonderful meal. Our female server was very knowledgeable, attentive without being overbearing and there were no questions she couldn't answer. She let us taste two different wines before we decided on what we wanted, and that was so helpful and a nice touch -... More

We went to Higgins for an early New Year's Eve dinner with another couple after hearing some friends rave about it. We were greeted warmly and seated right on time for our reservation. The decor and ambiance was lovely at Higgins - classy without being stuffy or pretentious. Our female server was perfect - attentive without being intrusive, knowledgable, helpful... More

I've probably been to Higgins over a dozen times for dinner. Each visit is superb. Food is inventive, local, and delicious. Wait staff is knowledgeable and efficient. Conveniently located in the Cultural District it is very popular and requires a reservation for dinner. Quality merits the high prices.

From the wonderful atmosphere to the urban cuisine this is one restaurant you won't want to miss. Exotic, local fresh cuisine. Everything is seasoned with locally grown herbs and all fresh vegetables, meats and fare. Lovely cheese and locally made sausages. Fine wine list. Service to die for. A place to go for the entire evening. A true fine dining... More
