“Great restaurant, Food and Service”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Best restaurant in Phoenix. The food was delicious and an excellent variety. Had the calamari one night and the fries the next and both were excellent. Tried several different tap beers and all were cold in a frosty glass. The pizza was amazing. Not heavy, not messy, but oh so good. Customer service was quick, efficient, and friendly and it was the same wonderful service with a large or small group of people. I highly recommend this great place to eat and meet friends. And it is located right in front of one of the light rail stops too.

“Excellent food, great atmosphere and hosts”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

The food is amazing. Every pizza is one of a kind. The eggplant was off the charts in presentation and taste. Great selection of wine and good selection of beer. You have to try the different type of appetizer fries and calamari, excellent!

“Great Restaurant in a Great Neighborhood”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

This was my first visit to Portland's after wanting to try it for long, long time. We stopped in during First Friday and enjoyed everything about it. The atmosphere is really cool; very dark and cozy, new wave music, young and old at the bar, a variety of food options. You can have a meal, a drink and a small bite (which is what we did), or just enjoy a glass of wine and watch the hustle of downtown Phoenix. The service is good there. We were seated right away. The waitress was perfect for our liking. We are not fans of intrusive staff that are always checking on you, so the occasional drive-by, do you need anything, was casual and excellent.

The food was great. The cajun fries are very good and something you don't see on a lot of menus. Nice with a cold beer. I think the next time we go back we will try a full dinner. There are several things on the menu that I look forward to trying because it all looks good.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Recently returned to Portland's after a couple of years absence and the food did not live up to our memory of previous visits. We still like the staff and service so we will give the kitchen another chance
