My fish was prepared perfectly and the combination of items served with it were unique and really worked together. Nice and knowledgeable servers too.

I went here with a few friends and we all ordered two plates each to share. Everything had such incredible flavor and we enjoyed trying so many dishes. The bartender made me the best margarita I have ever had. Go here.

New Years Eve Dinner for 2 - arrived at 7:30 and told 45 minute wait. Stood around the bar for 20 minutes before being able to order a drink because the bartender was slammed. Drinks were creative and tasty once we got them. Watching the staff work together was like watching an orchestra play! Fine tuned hard working easy going... More

Wow! Delicious food and drinks. We ordered both off the menu and specials, all were fantastic. Wonderful flavor and presentation. Loved being able to watch them cook too. Service was great, definitely will go back.

A girlfriend of mine has been nagging me to go here for some time....finally we did and will be coming back sooner than later. We went on a Saturday night before a concert. As directed we got there 10 minutes before they opened and our party of 7 ended up being the 5th group waiting. And by the time they... More

This was our first visit to Nuestra Cucina. We both had chili rellenos. Mine was vegetarian. It was very healthy and good. Not too much cheese. Hubby had the pork relleno which was delicious. I like that I could have mine ala carte. Excellent Cadillac margarita. Best I've had in a long time! We especially like Colleen, our server. She... More

If yo are looking for standard Mexican food, this is not it. Very carefully prepared and served Central Mexican food, fresh ingredients, and served quite hot in temperature,. A neighborhood place, in an area of residences, there is pride and creativity throughout the staff and coming out of the kitchen

Three of us went there for dinner, but ended up sharing a variety of appetizers. As we ordered the waiter suggested that he bring them out in pairs that complimented one another and his choices were spot on: the Grilled Mexican white prawns marinated in tamarind with baked Oaxacan cheese, mushrooms and chile poblano; the crisp masa cakes filled with...

I say weird in the best Portland context. I have eaten lots of Mexican food and this was the most amazing. All I recognized was the Margaritas (one of the best) and the Tortillas, the rest was shear creativity from the chief. Combinations of ingredients that I could never imagine. And flavors that were terrific (did I say I liked... More

I have gone here on my last two birthdays with friends. First, you will have to wait unless you get there when they open. Second, it is worth the wait, and you can enjoy a cocktail and appetizer on the patio which is small, but you meet fun people that way. The margaritas are excellent…best I have ever had. You...
