“I always eat here whenever in Portland!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Every time I visit Portland I make it a point to stop here for lunch. Great neighborhood location and food. Excellent menu and wine list as well as great ambiance. Don't miss it.

“A great spot to sit outside on a nice evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

This has a great sidewalk patio to enjoy on a summer's evening. The food was delicious and the wait staff were incredibly friendly.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I had a really lovely meal here with a friend recently. Both our meals were excellent, and the ambiance conducive to quiet conversation and comfort.
I wanted a special drink, which they put together for me.
The service was also very good. Both attentive, and giving us enough space to eat and chat in private.
Highly recommended.
Then go next door to Papa Hayden's for a remarkable dessert!

“Great Food and Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Consistent service and eclectic menu. I take everyone here for lunch or dinner when in town and always have a good experience. Even my friend the restaurant owner loved the Jo Bar. I actually have never eaten in the main restaurant next door, Papa Haydn, but I am sure it is wonderful! Parking is always a problem in this area so bundle up, pack your umbrella and get ready for an experience worth the walk!

“Jo Bar re-discovered!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a restaurant which has been around for many years, but with all the terrific restaurants continuously opening in Portland, I totally forgot about it. Then, we were able too secure a table for New Year's Eve, and I was reminded why I liked it so well! Excellent (but not cheap) food, and 23rd is always a great place to hang out and watch the activity!
