What a wonderful dining experience. I love this restaurant and keep coming back, altho its been a while. Patience was required to weave the car through the Portland street construction, but it was well worth it. The appetizer --Jimmy Nardello peppers, peanuts, and scallions -- were so good.... I may grow the peppers next year at home. The entree --grilled... More

Portland is a great town to visit. It has lots going for it not least of which is some very good restaurants (and Powell's Book Store). Park Kitchen provided us with a nice relaxing meal after many hours of my wife buying books. I promise you will enjoy it too.

What an interesting mix of flavors and tastes. Chef David presented each dish with care and a great description. The wine paired was excellent and the choices were new and unique. The lamb with eggplant and other vegetables was yummy. The chocolate and salted caramel dessert was fantastic!

I met a Portland resident on a hike and she recommended this place. She said she had dined at all the restaurants in the Pearl Dsctrict and kept coming back to Park Kitchen. That intrigued me so we dined here on a Sunday evening. My husband and I decided to do the small plates both hot & cold plus a... More

I think this chef is trying so hard to be "different" that he has taken his eye off the ball. I was okay with a appetizer of sausage and cherries, that was interesting and tasty, but my pork entree was bland, and my girlfriend's salmon was raw! We sent it back, and it came back raw again. I think the... More

This was the second time we ate here and it is becoming our pre-MODA center dinner spot as it is right over the Steele Bridge. The food is creative and amazing. We had the Chickpea fries as an appetizer then Asparagus soup with dinner. Both were fantastic. Dinner was blackened Steelhead and Lamb.

We went here with friends and got the tasting menu. Everything was delicious. The dishes were all totally different than any of us had ever had and all the favors were complex and well put together. Well done

Had a business dinner....pairing of ingredients was very unique and very tasteful! Bartender made some creative drinks that really pleased my colleagues, as he listened to their requests. Will visit again!

Park Kitchen is a great place for a special dinner. Try the chef's tasting menu to get a taste of many of the special dishes. Servings were more than adequate for this 5 course meal. Try to wine pairing for some interesting wine choices. The staff is attentive and personable. We had a wonderful anniversary celebration.

Thank Kathy B
