Of all the good restaurants we visited, Higgins had the best food by far. Not only is the raw food of high quality (organic, grass fed) but the preparation has confidence in the ingredients and showcases them in every plate. We had some superb soup, pork and tuna. Large portions. Service is very professional and prompt, without being intrusive. Massive... More

A Monday evening in downtown Portland can be difficult to find a fine dining experience. Higgins did just that with salmon and ahi tuna specials that were outstanding. Table service was engaging and functional.

Higgins is a very fine restaurant in dwontown Portland. It serves what might best be called local cuisine, using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. It has clearly been around for a while, but is certainly none the worse for wear. The food is inventive and delicious. The room is very pleasant, albeit probably geared toward an older crowd. The wine list... More

My husband and I went here on a Friday at 5 for dinner and drinks before the show at The Keller. We each had a salad and an entree. The peach cocktail was amazing. I had the special salad which had salami, cheese, mustard, potatoes all on a bed of greens with grapes on the same. Simply delicious. My entree... More

Mussel appetizer was a must order. Tuna fish was outstanding. Fisherman stew was also wonderful. Pork plate was filling but not special. Risotto came out a bit too cool.

Ate here for my first night in Portland. Took a look at the dinner menu and was at first disappointed that none of the dishes interested me-for one the breadth of protein seemed slim. I ordered the Cretan zucchini-tomato cakes with cucumber tzatziki, tahini sauce and basmati rice dish. I was pleasantly surprised. The dish was very delicious and just... More

3 of us, 3 different meals. All terrific. Service spectacular. surprised that there were so many empty tables during a weekday lunch hour. Very clean and comfortable setting.

First night in Portland, this restaurant had been recommended and seemed to fit the bill partly because it was relatively close to PSU where we were staying for a conference. A glance at the menu outside made me think the place was reasonably priced (I think I was looking at lunch and bistro menus), and I chided myself afterwards for... More

My wife and I come here for special occasions now and then (at total of 3 or 4 times now). The food is somewhere between amazing/excellent and very good. The appetizers are often fantastic. The service is very good, the ambiance is very nice. It is expensive (dinner for two with one alcohol drink was about $165 with tip), and... More

It's not the only place for locally-sourced NW food, but it is one of the oldest and best. Superbly prepared food that can meet even the most discerning tastes. Even my teenage son got his fill with the Whole Pig.
