Fantastic place

I picked this place out just because of the name and the reviews were good. My wife and I are over from London visiting my sister in Seattle. So we went to Oregon for a few days and had a night in Portland. Originally I booked for 5 but we ended up as 6. Arrived 45 min early and as... read more

Loved everything about Higgins. The ambiance was linens and stemware but managed to be welcoming and not the least bit stuffy. This is not an inexpensive place but our meal was excellent. On the premise that the specials are what the chef really wants to prepare that evening we had a flatbread appetizer with caramelized onions, pancetta, apple and greens.... More

We were able to snatch a table in the bar area before the Book of Mormon performance on a busy Friday night. The hostess was a gem and made sure we got a table for six. The service was great and food and drinks very good. We were not rushed but served quickly and attentively so we could make the... More

Higgins was in walking distance of our hotel. It is clearly a busy place, but they were able to work us in without reservations as long as we cleared the table in an agreed amount of time. I had the cod (special of the day) which was fabulous. Very nice wine selection. Wait staff were pleasant and knowledgeable. Dessert (apple... More

Went there for dinner and drinks after seeing Book of Mormon at Keller Auditorium. Really great wait staff and the bar is like out of the movies. Very woody with sophisticated (but not stuff) selection of scotch and bourbon, but you can get mixed drinks there too (the bloody mary is superb). The staff and service was super nice and... More

We went over after work and the place was packed on a Thursday evening. We sat at the bar and ordered delicious apps for dinner...a scrumptious goat cheese platter and mushroom bruschetta- both delicious. Bartenders were busy but very friendly. We peeked in the restaurant which was full at 5:30 so reservations recommended. I wouldn't hesitate to go back for... More

In Portland for the night, and the restaurant we wanted to dine at, had no reservations. So the hotel staff recommended Higgins. Outstanding service and food, and you felt like you were in one of those high class establishments you see in the major cities. Not exactly inexpensive, but you're worth it, aren't you?

This was a much anticipated visit last summer, after hearing plethora of good reviews. Bottom line, this was truly an experience. The service was top notch, friendly wait staff that made sure we were taken care of and described every dish with grace. The food was phenomenal and served perfectly. Perfect for couples and friends wanting a quiet fine dining... More

I was a guest of a friend who chose Higgins for a post-museum visit for lunch. We decided to sit in the bar area. I did peek into the restaurant to see the decor and ambience (both very nice). But, like my friend, for a casual lunch, I prefer the bar. The panels are wood with fine art framed over... More

We had the winter greens, duck, and rigatoni. All were tasty. We did not have a reservation, so ended up at the bar since all tables were full. We did receive good attention from staff. This may not be our most favorite spot in Portland, but they do have a fun, unique menu and decor.
