My son and his wife insisted we make this our first meal while visiting Portland. They were absolutely right. Farm fresh, straight from the oven and delicious the pizzas are made with love in a wood fired oven. The salads are a great mix of greens, garbanzos with just the right amount of dressing. Heartily recommend.

I chose to have a Caesar salad on this visit, but the pizza looked and smelled wonderful, as did the calamari. The four others in our party kept saying over and over how good the food was. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to tomatoes so I wasn't able to taste theirs as they all chose pizza with tomato sauce. Oh well, I... More

This was the best place I've eaten in Portland so far. We went on a Sunday night, and we got right in, no wait! The pizza was some of the best pizza I've had, very similar to the pizza I ate while in Italy. The service was wonderful. This would certainly be worth the wait, there are tons of shops... More

We've been to Ken's two times in the past three years. Tonight's visit was a flat line. The vegetable plate was soaked in oil and vegetables were mush. ..overcooked. Salads were very good but please list all ingredients for vegans-sake. Cheese was sprinkled into the garden salad but not included in the menu description. Finally. ..I've been a big Fan... More

Put your name in and head down to Cheese and Crack and snack on a biscuit with jam. The Oven fired pizza is delicious-any flavor. Caesar salad easily feeds 2-3 people to start.

I had never tired wood-fired pizza until eating at Ken's. I already love pizza but I did not realize it could be elevated to this level.

All if have to say is that I am not much of a meat eater and I loved the sausage and fennel pizza. Fantastic! Can't wait to go again!

We had a group of four at 6 p.m. and it was a 45 minute wait. The restaurant is very small and there is not very much room to wait for your table. And be prepared to sit with other people at your table. There were not a lot of vegetarian pizza options. We ordered the Margherita and Arugula pizza... More

The pizza was delicious, especially the thin crispy crusts. Toppings ranged from classic to more adventurous choices. I would recommend getting the vegetable plate to start, it's interesting and delicious. Service was laid back, helpful, and great. The atmosphere was relaxed, casual, and effortlessly cool. The only thing I might change was the seating, my party of 3 was seated... More

The temps were freezing in Portland, but this Phoenix native had a warm welcome with excellent service! The food was unique. The bacon pizza with a side of arugula was amazing. (The server recommended the side which was spot on!). My husband loved the calamari, and the extra taster of the gelato was very thoughtful. Thanks for an amazing experience!
