We had a very nice meal here paired with two good French wines, fairly priced. We are foodies, but also like comfort food. Here, you can get both. I had a flavorful crab bisque with a small dollop of whipped potatoes. That was followed by an entree of some of the most flavorful/juicy chicken I have ever eaten.

Local neighborhood restaurant decorated in warehouse chic.
Music in the bar area – too loud.
Ask to be seated in the dining area where the open Kitchen in located.
Dress attire is Smart & Casual but you will feel comfortable in jeans, as well.
We were greeted by a fine young man. Anthony was our waiter.

This restaurant's menu changes weekly menu. Serving what is in season. This is the way to go.

We ordered:
Alandra Red wine – not over powering
For our appetizer
Bone Marrow – bit challenging to eat the connective tissue

Rabbit with cicerchie, chanterelle mushrooms and castelvetrano olives
Sturgeon wrapped in Prosciutto onto of leaks - Heaven on a plate, it was the BUTTER

Brutti ma buoni without creme fraiche in sugar plum and nuts
Chocolate cheesecake

One of my new favorite restaurants when I come back to Portland.

We live on the west side of the city and this restaurant is on the northeast side. But it was so good we will drive back over to go again. From the Burrata Brushetta to the popcorn panna cotta and everything in between, the food and cocktails were wonderful. Sometimes when you hear about a great place it doesn't live up to the hype ( two highly publicized come to mind) but this was really top notch. We had a variety of food, elk, chicken and the ricotta cavatelli and all of it was delicious! We thought it was a little more upscale than it was, most people were in jeans, even the wait staff, but that could partly be Portland. They have a happy hour we can't wait to try. I really suggest you give this restaurant a try, you won't be disappointed.

I thought we were into food but this chef and his menu are over the top on exotic ingredients and flavors. One of the few unfortunate aspects is they have no idea of how to make an extra dry martini with olives and the pour was poor in quantity. Our group of four tired the beef tartare (good), the beets with blackberry glaze (outstanding), the cheese fritters (very good), nasturtium salad (great), roasted half chicken (not completely cooked, fair), the rabbit (very good) and the clams, mussels and rockfish (very good). The décor is stark and harsh making for considerable noise. The restaurant is a $15.00 cab ride from downtown hotels. Will we be back? Probably not due to location, pricing for what you get and lack of fresh grilled fish. But for a one off experience it was very good on balance.

Decided to try Lincoln after seeing Jenn on Bizarre Foods. Went for our anniversary dinner and couldn't have been more pleased. Ordered exclusively from the happy hour menu. Tried the pigs ear, Lamb Tartar and rabbit meatballs. All delicious. My husband had coffee and I had the bartenders special cocktail. Excellent. At the end of the meal they brought out a homemade ice cream sundae for our anniversary, free of charge of course. Great prices too. We will definitely be back.
