Birthday Lunch

Enjoyed excellent service, a unique menu, and incredible desserts. Our first visit here, but we will be back. Had French onion soup, turkey sandwich, and a salmon entree'. Lemon chiffon cake for dessert with "Happy Birthday" in chocolate script.

I visited the Westmoreland location and found most of it unspectacular. Been here a a number of times over the decades and I think it has lost its edge. Tables so close that your neighbors conversation is unavoidable. Food a few bucks more than other places and not that good. Service was weak. Desserts remain amazing. Visually stunning, interesting (we... More

What a choice of cakes and deliciousness....we went for after dinner cake and coffee and were not disappointed. The choice is incredible and better go with four or more so you can all share. Service was good but waited for a table as so busy with good recommendations. We had the table near the kitchen door which was not great... More

Friday lunch - yummy salad topped with grilled salmon accompanied by a glass of Oregon Pinot Grigio - perfect. We were tempted by delicious desserts but resisted this time. The service was good and as always, the atmosphere was pleasant. This is a good choice for lunch or coffee and dessert if you find yourself around 23rd Street

My friends who live in Portland took me to Papa Haydn's and I fell in love with it as soon as I entered. It's a lovely place with excellent decor and on 23rd street where there are many boutique shops and other fun places. We each ordered a different dessert and shared. The chocolate cube was as decadent and tasty... More

Stopped in for lunch after shopping around 23rd. We were seated quickly and the service was good. We had a couple of salads and sandwiches...all were enjoyed by everyone.

While visiting Portland early March we had a very enjoyable lunch sitting outside. The ambience made us feel we were in Europe!! Solid meal - chicken sandwich and a burger. Glass of wine and a beer. Lemon cake for desert. Coffee. Would recommend.

After we were seated it took some time to get to us. Upon ordering drinks it took a while to get 2 bloody Mary's (over 10 min). We felt the waitress was working by herself. Not to mention the hostess was trying to rush us to flip the table when we had not even had our drinks yet! Upon the... More

We saw Papa Haydn and couldn't pass it up because the plates looked so fresh. It was about 2:30pm, and there was no wait. While the restaurant was full, there were still some empty tables. Our waitress was pleasant and seemed very accustomed to serving in a sophisticated setting. That is one thing about this place I should point out...it... More

If you're in the Rose City... venture over to "Nob Hill" (aka Alphabet District) and indulge yourself with one of PH's wonderful desserts. And if you need a meal too.... do that! They have everything from salads to sandwiches to entrees. (Oh and they serve adult beverages!) If you're trying to get in during any evening or on the weekend,... More
