Very, very quaint, cozy restaurant with a great brunch menu, full bar, and outstanding atmosphere. Staff were professional and friendly. Food was great. Will definitely return, often. Highly recommended.

“A step above the ordinary pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

Interesting mix of dishes. Some Pacific Northwest, some Irish, even one Russian. Good food and plenty of it. Standard pub decor, ambiance, etc.

“very poor service and salty food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

Sat down at Leaky Roof for dinner before a concert. My wife and werw very disappointed. The service was very poor. We waited for over a half an hour for our dinner to arrive, and when it did arrive it was very salty...my wife and I were dehydrated the whole next day. No one came around to fill up our glasses of water until we were done eating and ready to pay our bill. We will not be back...didnt find much to like about this spot except for the homemade onion rings.

“Wow... What a suprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2009

Don't be fooled by the outdoor appearance. A quick google search for "gastropub" on my cellphone while driving through Portland had this ranked top of the list. While small and cozy, this place has awesome food. After a large table of people left it got real quiet. After seeing all those people walk across the street to the Culinary Institute, we thought, this has to be good if it satisfies their pallet. And WOW! The special, rib-eye salad with goat cheese was unbelievable. Everything was fresh, and you can taste every flavor in the dish. It was perfect. The staff was fun to talk to and really loved working there. A great find that everyone should try.
