This is a hidden gem. Outstanding preparation and presentation of a variety of generally southern cuisine. Arrive early as the wait can be long and the area a bit sketchy, but don't be dissuaded by the exterior. The white table cloths and napkins are all a part of making the evening special for travelers among a primarily local crowd.

My family and a local to the Portland area took us here after we landed in Portland at 1am. It was late but they were still open, the ambiance was candlelit tables that you share with many other diners. If you aren't into sharing tables then I wouldn't recommend this place, however for us it was great as it felt... More

This interesting Bistro serves great food, including Catfish, Alligator, many kinds of Mac and Cheese and wonderful gooey desserts. The staff was helpful and timely. Don't eat all of your food though, as you will want to see what the staff creates for you out of aluminum foil with your leftovers....Montage is under the Morrison Bridge and has a parking... More

My wife and I went here with my cousin and her husband who live in Oregon. There was a wait but it was well worth it. We started off with the frog legs which was a first for my cousin and I (my wife and my cousin's husband did not wish to try). The legs were really good actually, almost... More

Hey, I had heard about the complaints on hygiene. I did not see that. I did see a rustic restaurant with interesting original art. We had good service and the food was very good and in big portions. I had a Cajun egg dish that was quite good and the Bloody Mary was legendary, decked out with celery, olives, pearl... More

I visited here with a friend after he had gotten off work. I had previously eaten...he had not. He recommended the Mac & Cheese (because I love Mac & Cheese) and he ordered the biscuits and gravy. We each ended up taking half of our orders home...nicely presented in swan shaped tin foil.

We walk in and are placed to eat in the middle of a table filled with people sitting on each side and we are literally shoulder to shoulder with random people. The bathroom is literally DISCUSTING. It looks like they haven't cleaned it in a year. The soap doesn't work. Paper was everywhere. Pee and poop all over the toilet... More

The oyster shooters are the best oysters I have ever tasted! The SPOLD mac&cheese is good, but I think it is a bit over-reviewed/over rated by a lot of reviewers. The pesto mac&cheese is delicious, and I actually prefer it to the spold. The Crawfish hush puppies are yummy, but again- a bit over rated. Go for the pesto mac... More

It's a hot spot among locals. Order the mac and cheese if you're at a loss. ALWAYS ask for food to go too, you wouldn't want to miss out on a foiled critter now would you!?! They provide the batter and the fixings, and you get to grill your own flapjacks at the table.

My husband and I met friends for brunch. It was very good. Lots of options. They have a very creative Macaroni buffet (YUM!)
