One of the classic restaurants in Portland.

Good food, good service. But remember, Portland is a foody city. This would not rate very high on my list.

Have had the good fortune to dine at higgins many times over the past 15 years and have never left with less than 100% satisfaction. Our last visit was in the spring of 2015 and as always, the food and service were on point. We enjoyed a bottle of local Pinot noir as suggested by our knowledgeable waiter. The price... More

We dined early as we had concert tickets, in fact we were the first people there as they were opening. We had reservations and it was just as well - they were turning people away. Our waiter was personable and knowledgable and after listening to his description of the specials I chose them for my starter and main - heirloom... More

Higgins is a must visit for any trip to Portland. The staff was super friendly and accommodating and the food was out of this world delicious. We sat in the bar, which serves the full menu, and had one of the best meals of our trip! We had the Nicoise salad with albacore tuna, Totten inlet mussels, and Kakavia- a... More

My friends and I went here last night when visiting. It was one of our friend's birthdays, so we decided to go here. Overall we were all happy. I had the seasonal summer salad and the salmon special - it was delicious, with a nice red Thai sauce. waiter was great - we were somewhat of a rowdy group and... More

A trip to Portland is not complete without a Higgin's dinner. The staff has been there forever, the food is everything you want the "local, sustainable, seasonal" to be. Perfectly prepared, delicious, and beautiful presentation. Comprehensive wine list & beer list with knowledgeable staff to lead you in the proper direction. Six diners & only tasted three of the main... More

Sorry to write generally redundant review to last visit in Portland, but the food quality here is the best we experienced. Positives: 1. Personable waiter. 2. Fantastic local Pinot selection. I picked one and let the waiter pick one. 3. Small menu but plenty of variety between meat, fish, foul and vege options. 4. Abalone in extremely complex green pepper... More

Been there twice in a year. The first time was a little better experience. Food is good, natural and changes often. Web site has the daily menu so check it out before you go. Wait staff is excellent. They do have a lower cost wine menu selection for those that don't want to spend $60. When I go back, I'll... More

I was searching for a place to have a "reunion lunch" with friends from college, but without any real count until the last minute. I made a reservation initially for 9, increased it to 11, and then, when everyone appeared, we were 10. Higgins was very very accommodating of this "uncertainty," gave us a great table and great service. A... More

Was in Portland for the weekend and asked a local for the best fish restaurant in Portland and was told to visit Higgins. With a mention to ask for Andy who was an excellent waiter and the sommelier. This was a perfect recommendation. Andy was terrific even going as far as opening a bottle of Chard specially for me to... More
