“Good Greek food in on NW 23rd”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have been on the lookout for good Greek places since we moved here. On the plus side, it's easy to get on on 23rd and Marshall, they have outside seating, the service was good and most importantly, the food was delicious. We had the pastitsio and lamb kebabs. Both were very good. There are very few Greek wine choices, so we had Italian wine. The restaurant doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. It isn't a nice restaurant, but it isn't quite Greek diner. It is a good place with good food. we had a good experience and would definitely go back.

“It's fine but I wouldn't make a special trip.”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This place is fine. The hummus is nothing to write home about and the chicken I had was just fine. There are better Mediterranean restaurants in Portland, there are (or were) worse. Good for people watching along 23rd, and would be nice with friends.

“Terrific food and outstanding value”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

I've eaten at Dorio 4 times since discovering it and love it.. The avgolemona soup is very good and a generous portion. The lamb skewers over seasoned rice are excellent. Each time the lamb has been tender, juicy, and well seasoned. I usually skip the rice that accompanies most entrees but not this time. Excellent rice. Lunch for $11 - what a great deal.

“Finally, Great Greek Food in Portland!”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

For 12 years we've been trying to find a really good Greek restaurant in Portland. We knew our quest was finally over with our first bite of the fried calamari, with its superb side of tzatziki, at Dorio in the NW area of town. Most of the menu is "small plate" style, so we were able to try many dishes from the Greek fries to lamb and chicken skewers to light-as-air meatballs. (Be sure to have a glass of ouzo with them--the taste combination is amazing!) The moussaka was outstanding, rich and tomato-ey and topped with a delicate bechamel. And the triangle of baklavah at the end of the meal was unlike any we've ever tasted: In place of the usual soggy stack of chewy filo, we were presented with a fragile tower of pastry, still crisp and layered with nuts, scented with cinnamon and cloves, sweet but not cloying. The owner could not have made us feel more welcome, and the wine list was varied enough to satisfy most palates with well-chosen and well-prices wines. We hope to return to work our way through the entire menu!
