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.

What made this dining experience so special was the passion of the personnel that served, prepared food and bartended this lovely establishment. The food was so fresh and the ingredients were so precisely delicious, with every bite, my friend and I looked at each other with smiles the entire time. The bartender, Curtis, was extremely knowledgeable about liquors and wines... More

This was a great dinner! Our second time there and now our must-go-to place when we are visiting Portland. The salt cod fritters are a must-have - they now serve them with a Asian inspired sauce and bonita flakes (previously it was with malt vinegar). The chickpea fries are wonderful and now that it is fall they are served with... More

Dined here on Wednesday evening, the restaurant was nearly empty. We had a reservation and had to wait to be seated in the bar, by the main entrance. Drafty and cold, we were off to a poor start. The menu, when it finally arrived, was extremely limited. We were not in the mood to leave, so the three of us... More

Chickpea fries, cod fritters, frikeh with cucumbers, ground cherries and feta and Oregon albacore...oh my! Partner this with outstanding service in both the bar and dining room, a good wine list and a cozy downtown setting and you have a winner. Loved Park Kitchen.
