Portland likes to think of itself as smarter than your average hound dog, way smarter than Elvis, for instance. The front house crew here, head wait, bartender, may choose to be chatty only with people who mirror their own cultural bag of tricks. The cocktails are excellent in flavor and balance. They are highly communicative with people they consider to... More

Walking downtown, looking for an interesting place to have something to eat and drink on a Sunday morning. Friendly and efficient bartender who knows how to make a drink - Tequila Sunrise and a Clamato Bloody Mary - forgot the name for it. Ordered the Biscuits and Gravy and Poached Eggs also Eggs Benedict - LIFE CHANGING good stuff! As... More

I had a client in from out of town recently and he wanted to have a Portland type experience, so we decided to have drinks and appetizers at Clyde Common after our meeting. Clyde Common did not disappoint. The bartender, festooned with a full beard, black-rimmed glasses and a slightly snarky attitude was perfect. We ordered a couple of glasses... More

My husband and I happened on this restaurant for happy hour. They have great priced drinks and appetizers during happy hour that are hard to pass. Favorites: Bourbon Renewal, simple green salad, french fries, 6oz burger. I really enjoyed their popcorn the first time we went, but when we returned the popcorn had a spicy seasoning that we did not... More

We popped in for happy hour, having enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar the night before. The menu is very limited but all we wanted was a drink and a snack, so it seemed ideal. From the get-go, the waitress seemed to dislike us. She was disdainful, unfriendly and slow. Maybe a bad day for her, but we certainly... More

Clyde Common adjacent the Ace Hotel lobby ws just as good on our second visit as the first. Primarily, they simply prepare and cook everything very attentively, eggs are poached just right...hash browns homemade with flavor and flair, all the plates look appetizing are served at the right food temperature and taste good. Weekend brunch which opens @ 10am may... More

Wine and... More

We arrived for a late dinner. My husband is a chef, and since foie gras is illegal in CA, we were so happy to see it on the menu. All of the dishes were well composed and thoughtful. Everything we ate was delicious.

Clyde Commons is more of a trendy place to visit and it should be said that first and foremost in appearances it is a bar then a restaurant. The establishment is geared towards the bar with an impressive list of whiskey's for every taste and budget. The food during happy hour is smaller in portion but the quality is good.... More

First the good - The food was excellent. The place is pricey, but I don't mind paying for a great meal. As good as the food was, I can't give above an average rating. We sat at the bar for about 20 minutes before finally being asked what we want to drink and getting a menu. So it was about... More
