As always it's entertaining to try a number of small plates and/or share large plates amongst the four of us. Especially enjoyed the pork spinella and the ricotto Dyushbara this time.

Excellent food and ample portions. We did entrees and wine flights, very reasonable prices. Many items come as half orders so easy to try different dishes. Recommend the halibut and potato dumplings!

I have eaten at several other restaurants in the Portland area and was skeptical when told that this was one, if not the best, restaurant in Portland by a Portland resident. I was expecting to see a sharp dining room that was somewhat stuffy. What...More

During a trip to Portland, we dined here and found it to be an epicurean delight. Three of us had (and shared) the Impossible Burger, the Kale Caesar Salad, and the steelhead salmon. You must try the Impossible (vegetarian) burger. I am a dedicated carnivore,...More
