I came here with three friends. You sit at large tables with other guests. The menu is set, and you eat what they serve. The food was good, but very little meat and small portions (I mean small). Many of the dishes included lots of...More

We dined here with family at the 8:45 seating. Arrived about 5 minutes early and waited outside for about 10 minutes. Upon entering found the atmosphere is unique. Was promptly seated. Dinner was presented well and very good. The server explained each course. The only...More

Three-course brunch that was both spectacular to the eyes as much as the taste! Caring and attentive service with frequent refills of coffee and water. We decided to do wine parings with each course which enhanced the flavor further. What an amazing restaurant!

We sat with others at the large farm style table. The courses arrived every 15 minutes or so, perfectly executed bursting with flavor. The portions are reasonable so that you leave after six courses feeling normal, not stuffed and ill. This was definitely worth the...More

All the rave reviews are pretty much correct. This place is excellent. I think it was our best meal in Portland. We came here for Brunch (couldn't get a dinner reservation). Sat at a shared table with others. One note, if you eat here alone,...More

Delighted to have finally eaten at Beast after hearing/reading so many wonderful things about it for years. Naomi Pomeroy did not disappoint. I went for brunch and the three-course meal was absolutely terrific - each dish perfectly composed, balanced and flavored, and the communal table...More

Beast is a gem and a local favorite for foodies. Five-to-six course meal, set menu, close quarters but all very hip. Be sure to opt for the wine pairings, and to ask to sit (if you're a couple) at the butcher block table in the...More

If you are considering dining at Beast, I suggest you give it the benefit of the doubt. The doubt is that somehow, this establishment has aspired to be categorised as both a communal seating joint, like serviced mess hall, and also a representative of cutting...More
