We stopped at Higgins for lunch while walking around exploring the city. The service at Higgins was excellent and the food was delicious. I lost track of my notes on the food, but I remember the chowder my husband ordered. It was so good I ordered some too. I had a yummy salad that included an unusual grain. I ate... More

Higgins is what comes to mind when I imagine the very best food in Portland, served by knowledgeable staff in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Have dined here numerous times since moving to Portland; we have always been rewarded. Our favorite space is a table in the bar.

Saying this is one of Portland's very best is saying a lot, as their are many very good restaurants there. We had a superb dinner for four....probably the third or fourth time we have been there, and will certainly go back again. Not cheap, but worth the price.

Had the opportunity in dinning here last Saturday, 9-10-16 for dinner, it was a very nice place, food good (we both had their steak, it was good, not great), service great. After dinner we tried to go into the bar for a after dinner cocktail, but no room, even though our server said there were open seats.

This Portland stalwart has a lot going for it - location, cozy ambiance, great service from professionals, good wine list and well-made cocktails. What came out of the kitchen on my most recent visit was disappointing. The ingredients were fresh, local and high quality but execution was poor. Gazpacho with shrimp lacked cohesive flavor. Mains were worse - tenderloin was... More

My wife and I like the Higgins Bistro but do take guest for lunch in the main restaurant. Standard selection of meals, nice staff and good atmosphere.

The best pasta I have had in a long time made even better with the amazing service from Charles. The ambiance is lovely, wine delightful. All round a beautiful meal. Thanks!

I most admit to liking good food and great wine, and this restaurant has both of those items to the nth degree. My wife and I spent an enjoyable Saturday evening here, just "wallowing" in the atmosphere and the food. Salmon, FRESH, for my wife, and I had the PIG plate. I know that sounds strange, but the chef is... More

I sat in the bar for dinner and enjoyed nitro draft beer and a pastrami sandwich. Senior professionals delivered attentive service. Two TVs were playing tennis. I ordered off the bistro menu... an additional menu with altered or abbreviated dinner menu items. Worth a visit.
