Excellent tasting menu (all fish). We had a work event for 12 people. Food was delicious and service was attentive (even though a bit slow) Flavors were excellent and creative. One note: it was fish/seafood only.

Absolutely a very special dining experience. We loved the evening. It was paced beautifully, presented professionally and it was absolutely fabulous food and wine. Every aspect of each dish was executed to perfection - painstakingly prepared with many elements, but never overwhelming. Always a balanced...and beautiful flavor that worked to highlight the main ingredient. The wines were every bit as exquisite as the meal. Carefully selected to complement the food and very well explained and understood by the staff. This is a wonderful way to enjoy a very pampered evening. We are only visiting Portland, but we are telling everyone about it. We would certainly return. The care, creativity and flavors are extraordinary. What a delight!More

We were told to make sure we had dinner at Roe in Portland. It can be a little confusing to find since it not street level but it is definitely worth it. From the minute you walk in the door the staff has a lovely...surprise waiting and I will not spoil it here. It is a tasting menu with choices for each course and one was better than the next. It was all beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The wines paired with the food were perfection and the ambience is relaxing. The staff is attentive but not intrusive. We loved everything about our evening at Roe and I highly recommend it.More

The eight course tasting menu is actually more than 12 courses counting the pre-menu bites. The variety is pretty amazing, from clams to swordfish to salmon and bass, and tasty. The food and wine are very very good and the atmosphere is elegant but not...pretentious, a very comfortable feel to the second floor location in one of the street front buildings in Portland. The service is friendly and prompt. Very reasonably priced for the long menu but they also serve a four course meal. A return visit is a must.More

The food is just stunning. Beautifully presented. Exquisite. Wonderful variety of flavours and textures. But I just don't get the vibe or the experience that the owner and staff are looking to create. They make the place hard to find (no signs), then greet you...in an entry room, offer a complementary beverage to prepare you for the exposition of the dining area, which was an underwhelming entry. It's laid back in some respects, which doesn't fit with the food... Service was good, not great. Our server misread the group. I'd go again, and recommend it for the food, but it needs something from an experiential point of view to match the food.More

An acquaintance who owns a rather famous restaurant had this on his list. So naturally, I placed it on my list of places to eat in Portland. They’re not open everyday because they busy catching and procuring the featured dishes on the menu! The onslaught...of amuse bouche was unrelenting. It almost made us regret ordering the caviar service. Almost. Hand piped, perfect, quarter sized blini were made to order. Top that! We ate at the counter, allowing us to witness a symphonic combination of movement and skills, dishes and rest. Not one person was idle. I had a special admiration for the dishwasher. If he goofed, everything would have come to a standstill! The seafood was excellent. Presentations were seasonal, clever and never overshadowed the fish. We weren’t upsold on the wine pairing, which appeared to be enormous and included both a beer and a dessert cocktail! When we chose a modest $55 bottle of Spanish rosé, we were complimented! We enjoyed this meal tremendously and recommend the caviar wholeheartedly for the wonderful presentation.More

Had an extraordinary 7 course dinner at Roe with my sister. Sitting at the counter was a great experience as we were able to see all the action. The food was great - and we have had many, many tasting menus all over the world...- and the overall experience was superb! Certainly a priority if you are looking for a special dinner in Portland.More

This was the first word that comes to my mind after the first bite of one of the seven course menu. Superb raw material selection, carefully crafted dishes, at the right amount, this is one of the best restaurant!!!

We had never tried this restaurant before, and it started out really well. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere overall was wonderful. We had the 4-course meal. and the first two courses were really good. We even liked the scallops, which we normally don't...like (butter poached... yum!). Unfortunately, we were disappointed with the salmon in the third course (olive oil poached with eggplant). It may have been cooked really well, but it simply wasn't to our taste (and we normally like salmon). The dessert option had a wonderful butternut squash cake with walnut ice cream, but the second dessert (an apple dessert) was minuscule, and disappointing again, so the meal didn't really end well. We liked a lot of it, and again, the service was AWESOME, but the courses just didn't add to to what we expected for the price. We're glad we tried it, but probably won't go back. Perhaps a different choice of courses would have helped, or a different style of cooking the salmon would have changed our minds. We could tell it was quality food, and cooked well. Just not to our tastes.More

Went to this dining experience after a great experience at Willow. It was $250 per person, we were told it would be $150 each. Everything was an additional charge... The server was really awkward and it went on and on 3 hours and 45 minutes,...by the end we just wanted to go. Would not recommend.More

The first answer has it right. Definitely NOT a breakfast place.
