Great during Happy Hour except weekends.

This is a great place. Our friends in Portland knew about it or we probably would not have gone. Portland has so many good places. There is a "Happy Hour" menu every night except weekends from 4pm to 9pm.. The plates are smaller and less expensive, but very adequate. Service from the kitchen... read more

Putting its best foot forward. The Service, at 3 Doors Down, began at the front door. It's friendly inviting staff was quick to seat us and start appetizers and cocktails. Our waiter / server, that I called Toni and my wife says his name is not Toni, He did a fabulous job making the service at 3 doors down very... More

We are new to the Portland area and this restaurant came highly reccomended. It has been around for a long time and has expanded over the years. It is located just off Hawthorn. Only street parking is available. We had a 5:30 reservation on a Tuesday night and there were already other diners when we arrived. By the time we... More

We've eaten in this restaurant several times. The food is great. The staff is friendly. The only aspect of our dining experience that was negative is the fact the acoustics in the main dining area are so terrible you can hardly hear yourself talk because all you hear is the din of other diners around you who are yelling probably...

This trendy restaurant in trendy SE Portland is a real find for us. We were looking for a new experience and our SW Portland friends suggested it. Daily special was a delight and the staff (all of them) were upbeat, helpful and totally indulged us. Our stay was a very nice evening. Only thing that needs attention is overall restaurant... More

A night out was overdue and we decided to try this Italian restaurant on the Portland east side. 3 Doors Down is in the Hawthorne district with many places to choose from. We had a little table in the corner at the window. It was fun to be able to both see the restaurant and to see the many Portlanders... More

Great food, not overpriced, friendly service. Around the corner from a large Pwells bookstore. Trendy, fun neighborhood to walk in. 20 minutes from downtown. If going near peak dinner hours you must have a reservation.

Portland is full of fine restaurants, so it takes a great deal of work to be recognized as a standout. 3 Doors Down is a popular neighborhood restaurant specializing in Northwest cuisine with emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. On our recent visit, the food was above average -- it would be considered gourmet dining in Wichita or Springfield, Massachusetts (and... More

This neighborhood gem in fashionably weird Portland is on my repeat list for its energy and superb dining . The service was tops with a charming waiter and owner who are completely engaging - can I sneak them into my luggage and take them home . My challenge was dairy free and gluten free - no problem and creative choices... More

Visited this restaurant with a friend who had visited before. We had the penne pasta with vodka sauce, which was very tasty. Apparently the restaurant has grown over the years from just a few tables to a full size restaurant. We were seated near the window. The restaurant is located in the 'weirder part of Portland', seen some interesting people... More
