I am puzzled by a few reviews. This is an awesome place. The bar and environs are beautiful, great light (soft), great original art, large bar for eating at (I love this!@), and private tables down and upstairs with room for conversation. Winnie the bartender is one of the best in Portland...she will mix you a drink either a favorite or some concoction that she has invented for you based on your alcohol preference and mood....try her..trust is all it takes...I have had outrageous, delicious concoctions.
In the kitchen, Becky holds sway and is a wonderful chef with a deft hand. She has lots of experience as chef in gourmet restaurants in Boston and the West Coast . .there is a grill in that kitchen and she makes locally sourced delicious food. . .the menu changes with seasons and availability and chef's discretion....the homemade soups are wonderful - each spoonful, real flavor. There are always meat, seafood and vegetarian options. Appetizers, salads and small plates are wonderful.
As for desert. . .homemade and wonderful, have taken an extra order home.
What makes this place is the personal attention and delicious food and beverages in an inviting atmosphere. So much so that we have become regulars.
So I am puzzled at a couple of the reviews. Please just go in and say hello to Winnie, sit down and ask for a drink. . .you will not regret this. Then ask about the menu....I will be stuned if you don't enjoy this well enough to come back. . .
