Departure is not what most residents of the area would consider to be a "true" Portland restaurant. However, that being said it may well be worth your consideration if you enjoy great views and generally more upscale dining. The quality and attention to detail here are excellent, and their specialty drinks are also quite good. However, portion sizes are incredibly small given the prices. Expect to get three Dim Sum dumplings for your table. The main dishes are also smaller. My only other minor complaint, at least in the area we were seated, is the proximity of other diners to you. Fellow patrons are literally at arms length at other tables and since the restaurant itself is generally busy and louder than others, it is hard at times to hear your partner over other tables' conversations, which are quite audible. However, it is quite a modern setting with a great view of the city, and some very tasty dishes.
