Higgins has been a popular restaurant in Portland for 24 years - the chef is the owner. The service is excellent - attentive & informed. Their emphasis on fresh locally sourced food. Everything was very good - especially the fresh seafood - Chinook salmon in particular. They also have an extensive selection of beers & wines.

Not enough can be said for this iconic Portland restaurant. The food and drinks are nothing short of superb. But I must say that the every single staff person who tended to us were quietly, kindly attentive and poised, knowledgable, with perfect timing... We enjoyed the best window seat, and each other, while being tended to so perfectly while, again,... More

We were fortunate to secure a last minute reservation on a recent visit to Portland at Higgins based on a recommendation from a resident. Higgins is in the theater district so you need to secure a dinner reservation ahead of time! Street parking was all full but there is a parking deck across the street. Not the easiest to navigate...

With four people in our party, we each ordered something different and were not disappointed. Service was excellent. The staff were personable. It was a lovely lunch.

I dined here with high expectations (based on the reviews) and came away impressed. Higgins is a friendly, unpretentious restaurant with plenty to brag about (though, they don't.) I respect their proprietor's dedication to healthy, local farming, and it came through in every bite. I enjoyed two glasses of the delicious Cameron Giovanni white wine (a pinot blanc) with my...

Downtown Portland in a very central area close to the museum and theaters and concert hall. Two different dining rooms both with pleasant and confortable decors. Excellent service and good cuisine. However some suggestions for improvements : paper tablecloth not in phase with this type of restaurant, service great but slightly overdoing it, good cuisine but too much spices for... More

My wife and I were visiting Portland and read about Higgins, so we decided to give it a try. Made reservations for Friday night. Upon arrival (20 minutes early), were greeted by friendly front desk staff and said our table would be ready shortly. We went to the bar for a drink. Shortly, we were told our table was ready...

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.

Thank Timothy C
