“Fabulous food....issue with sound”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

A really unique experience with great food, wine, desserts, pricing is fair and all around great service. No changes recommended at all this way. ONE big issue is sound. Chef likes it very loud and with vocal music.....I think this is not in concert with setting, cuisine, or style of restaurant much less the price point. Suggest the chef wear an iPod if that is critical to her. We wanted to talk and visit and were inhibited by this one fact.....otherwise, keep up the great work!

“Very good and unusual/fun”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Had their Valentine's dinner last night. 5 course, fixed price. It included oysters, beet & fresh fruit salad, tuna, beef and chocolate soufflé; all paired with wine.

The food was fantastic and the service very friendly and good. It's unusual with the family style seating and the food cooked/prepared right beside the 2 dining room tables. This all contributes to a very energetic dining experience. Expensive but worth every penny! We'll be back anytime we're in Portland.

“fabulous dining adventure; but I thought i'd slide out of my chair”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This was my 2nd meal at Beast. Our family celebrated my husband's birthday.
My son has recently started cuilinary school; and thought it would be a huge
dining adventure for all.
We had a wonderful 5 course meal---all over the map!!
The wait staff do a great job explaining all the components of each course.
It's fun to see alot of the plating happen.
The rabbit course was divine.
Our ONLY complaint was we thought we'd slide off our chairs!!

“Brunch seating did not disappoint”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We went to a Sun Brunch Seating and loved everything about this. It is a great space with an open kitchen, elegant clean lines set the mood for the excellent food. This is a set tasting menu only; and Brunch is a great option to experience this at a slightly lower price point.

“An excellent dining experience”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We had a wonderful evening here on our first night in Portland. The shared tables made for a great dining experience and we had a bunch of new friends by the end of our meal. Lovely dishes and beautifully matched wine. A definite recommend.
