This place really needs to get over itself. There are three things wrong here and two of them are deal-breakers. First of all, it's very expensive - especially for what you get. But that can be excused because lots of things are overpriced and we...More

We had a spectacular brunch, which for me was adapted to be vegetarian. The food & experience were just exquisite. Highly recommended.

Located on the East side of Portland this place was a breath of fresh air. So far the PDX has been just ok for me. This place is forcing me to give Portland another chance. The atmosphere was great, low lighting, background music, communal seating...More

My wife and I were visiting Willamette Valley but we stayed in Portland. One of the vineyards suggested Beast and we could not have been happier. The meal was superb and the pairings were spot on! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for...More

I am not usually a fan of prix fix tasting menus. There tends to be too much food, too many fussy presentations and overwhelming number of flavors to absorb- some of which only consist of one bite. This was not the case at Beast. Portions...More

After hearing so much about this restaurant, I had pretty high expectations. I have been to many excellent restaurants in Portland, and I had assumed that Beast would be as good, if not better than many of the others. Of the menu that was prepared,...More

Yes this was one of the best 5 meals I have ever had. Price is steep at $125 per person, but it is six courses and this is a tip-free restaurant (you can give more if you want). The wine pairing is another $50 and...More
