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.

My teenage daughter and I were in Portland for two days and Higgins was recommended by a restaurant that could not accommodate us for a table. Higgins is upscale(ish) and the food is amazing. The dishes were prepared with premium ingredients and the flavours were balanced and clean. The service was prompt and personable without being stuffy. We enjoyed our... More

Sat in the bar on a Friday and had a wonderful meal. The charcuterie will not disappoint and we split the burger, which was cooked perfectly. We were late for happy hour but the menu was still up and asked for one of the items, at full price of course and was told the kitchen wasn't prepared to cook the... More

We had dinner at the Higgins Restaurant on Broadway. Our panzanella tomato salad was very tasty. Our main courses were Albacore Tuna and Chinook Salmon. Both fish were cooked to perfection and very delicious. Our Oregon white wine, a blend of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris and a recommendation by our waiter, went very well with our dishes. We finished...

Cool older vibe place with great food, I would recommend it with confidence, especially if you like well crafted, nice quality food. This chef has won a lot of awards.

Our meal at Higgins was wonderful in every way. Our server, Charles, was a delight and could not have been more attentive and helpful. We enjoyed the Whole Pig Plate, the Greek Style Fisherman’s Stew (delicious!!) and a Snap Pea Risotto along with a great selection of beer. Wine list was also amazing but to find a 3 page craft...

Really lovely staff. Lovely old building with high ceilings, plenty of space on and between tables. I like the little lamps on the tables around the walls too because it's nice to see what's going on on your table. My waitress (Kami) was delightful. She articulated the specials clearly and audibly, and was friendly and helpful. A true professional. My... More

This restaurant's cuisine is very very creative. If you are a meat and potatoes traditionalist you probably wouldn't like anything on the menu except the steak. The menu changes frequently also, so what we had may not be offered when you visit. I had a very good red lentil soup, lamb t-bone and lamb sausage on top of stuff I... More
