We arrived at 9:00 a.m. for brunch on a Saturday morning. The restaurant was completely empty and four employees were standing at the desk. We were a party of six and asked to sit on the patio. The head hostess said she'd see what they could do. We waited and waited. We looked at all the pictures on the wall,... More

I've had both lunch and brunch here and have not been disappointed. Eating in their outside courtyard is fabulous! The restaurant has both good food and a nice atmosphere and nice friendly service. They go out of their way to make you happy. I would describe it as sort of a country healthy American food restaurant. It's one of those... More

We were not happy to wait 15 minutes for a table when nearly all of them were empty! The food was ok, but nothing special and the prices were high. Quite frankly the value is just not there. $174 for 4 people with only entrees and a cheap bottle of wine. Good bar and very nice ambience however. We won't... More

Do try Flor de fumar its a smoky summer cocktail, loved it since I felt it actually had smoke. Food is amazing and we tried a Saggi wine which I felt was the interesting part. Little expensive but worth visiting.

A very cosy, yet spacious interior and exterior dining area, despite a busy and popular restaurant, is a remarkable accomplishment which this restaurant achieves. This ensures that Sunday morning breakfast can still be achieved in decent order, and a very satisfying Sunday morning breakfast at that! Providing fresh ingredients from their farms such as their eggs, fresh vegetables, and bacon/sausage.... More

We have eaten here quite a few times and highly recommend this restaurant for its top notch cuisine and beautiful ambience. If you are able to sit in their beautiful garden that is an extra bonus. They serve expertly prepared dishes made with local ingredients so the offerings are constantly changing. Last night we went with guests from out of... More

Our first evening it was rainy so we walked to this restaurant to join a friend who lives near there. While its somewhat historic, we found the menu and food a bit too trendy and pricey for our usual tastes. Not impressed enough to go again or send friends there.

They make there own meat for this, but it is the sauerkraut that makes this sandwich. (I did not have the dressing) They are a bit stingy with the meat, but probably healthier that way. It did not taste greasy, but I was constantly wiping my hands off. The fries were good, my coke tasted more like Pepsi. Nice looking... More

If you like restaurants with menu that sounds great and service that is stuck up, this place is for you. It has lovely ambiance and sounds so good, until you experience the good and the service. We love great healthy food and genuine great service regardless of the ambiance. This restaurant delivers extremely overpriced menu with very average dishes that... More

This is quintessential Portland. They have their own farm... they have innovative dishes with other local ingredients. Lots of great cocktails and mock tails... Beautiful outdoor space... perfection
