Everyone said you have to eat at Jake's Famous (which we did) but Higgins was a real treat. I took along my nice pants and jacket because I though it might be pretty formal but semi-casual was just fine. An excellent meal - a fresh seafood pasta - was exceptional.

The exterior is a bit misleading, but inside is nice and the food was very good. Had a salmon special that was excellent and a great beer selection too. Very limited menu, but everything my party had was very good.

A friend recommended this place and said to head straight back and eat in the bar for a more casual experience. Our waiter was AMAZING and the food was even better. I will definitely go back...too many things I want to try.

While visiting family were in town, they mentioned this restaurant, with which I was not familiar. I looked it up online and found great reviews and they could take a reservation for 7 made just the afternoon before, so that was a done deal. There is a bar area which was very lively. We were in the dining room which... More

This was my first visit to Higgins and it was a good one. My wife and I split a delicious seafood bourride; my son had pasta. The salads were very good.

My wife and I were staying downtown and the hotel suggested Higgins for fresh seafood and farm to plate vegetables. We had the Salmon and Cod. My wife asked for special prep on the Cod leaving off the crust normally served. No problem. Both dishes were excellent. Very nice white tablecloth restaurant. Service was exceptional. The night we went all... More

It's been several,years since we've dined here and decided it would be perfect for pre-theatre dinner. Service was spot-on and made sure our dinner was timed to get us to,our show on time. ,our party had the risotto, ahi, and mussels-all of which were delicious.

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor we booked in for an evening meal at Higgins. The service was very good, our server was exactly the right kind of attentive and other serving staff ensured our water was always full and plates we cleaned quickly. The organic produce was undoubtedly delightful, as the local area standards are so high for such... More

Higgins is definitely one of the best restaurants in Portland. Excellent locally sourced food. In the Bistrot, you can ordered off the restaurant menu, should you want to be a bit more casual. Also, it is Open after concerts. The staff is highly professional.
