Great restaurant in Portland that I visit nearly every time I travel to Stumptown. Brussels sprouts (crispy) with miso and a poached egg are incredible. Don't miss it

Thanks for letting people know about those Brussels Sprouts, Scott. We're trying to change people's minds about sprouts one dish at a time. See you next time you're in the neighborhood, Bruce Carey Owner More

Bartenders know how to pour a great drink and their appetizers are fantastic! They have outdoor seating in the warmer months which is helpful because this place is busy!

If you want an amazing dining experience with great Asian small/large plates as well as local Oregon favorites, Saucebox is your place. The service is 5-star and the drinks are very cutting edge with a great wine menu. Great for large business dinners with international clientele. Whiskey tasting is very cool.

Great staff and atmosphere. Everyone will like the offerings; there is something for everyone (carnivores and vegetarians). The brusssel sprouts were actually good. We stuck to the cheaper appetizer menu and had a good meal. Place is dark-wooded and open-tabled at front, so may be a cool downtown place for a first date (although the main menu is slightly $$)...

Today - the place has matured with all its bounty and appeal in tact. Options to dine in the bar or separate dining room are black... More

We are here after a few beers at a local brewpub. Great menu and open until very late. The Japanese burger and the Pad Thai were excellent.

We stumbled cross this place for a late dinner, when we were staying at the Benson across the street.The inside was funky and dramatic. The dining choices were Asian but with a very intriguing spin.

Just left Saucebox after visiting at the recommendation of our hotel staff...(whose judgment we are now laughing about!) We arrived w no reservations to find plenty of empty tables in sight.
