Description: Tucked away on a narrow street in the historic Calumet building in the heart of downtown, this rustic-refined French-American gastro-pub evokes the feel of Paris while being quintessentially Portland. In the heart of downtown, the Brasserie is a place to wind up or wind down. It's a perfect venue for date nights, business lunches, relaxing after work, on-the-town dining, or a post-shopping retreat. Private dining suitable for intimate fêtes or more boisterous affairs. This local brasserie elicits the true essence and spirit of the word “Montmartre,” defined literally as the highest point in Paris, and now figuratively as a perfectly French-American respite for food, drink and conviviality.

Would not have gone here with our group of 6 mature ladies if I had known it would be so loud. Very difficult to have a conversation. Service was friendly but slow and spotty. Menu was just ok for vegetarian - not a lot of choices. Obviously a trendy hot spot so not likely anything will change. If you like a boisterous crowd and are not In a rush, will probably love this place.

We just moved to Portland. We have so many restaurants to try. We walked to Brasseri. Since it was Sunday, we were given a brunch menu. I had the Monte Cristo with the bottomless Mimosas. A perfect pair! The one thing a lte negative would be... if the broche was cooked a little more so it wouldn't be so doughy. Not enough to complain though. We want to come back. The atmosphere was cozy and relaxed. We heard there is live music at night which will be an added plus.

I enjoyed a wonderful date night with my boyfriend at Brasserie Montmarte. Loved the atmosphere and the drink selection. Our cheese plate was delish. There was a great 3-piece jazz band playing. Really cool, relaxed and just a great spot to have a cocktail and conversation with the one you love. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Portland :-)

Great prices for happy hour. Waitress was lovely but the service was terrible. Wine cane after the meal was served, had to wait a long time just to be given water and they weren't very busy.

The waitress bought the wine because of the wait which was very nice. The happy hour menu was nice and good prices. Go on Monday and its all day.

What wouldn't be more lovely than a cute bistro in the heart of Portland, walking distance to all the best hotels? I had a salad that was good but a touch too plain and french onion soup that was good but not special. Service was odd. My co-diner wanted a gluten free hamburger (i.e. no bun) so she asked for lettuce instead of the bun. Was told they have "no lettuce". As we had just ordered salad, that was baffling. Her beet salad though was very good. I would try it again as everything was fine.

We were there on a Saturday night and they had a nice jazz combo that made things nice but a little loud. We asked to be seated farther away from the band. The hostess began by offering us a table next to the band, then a seat at the bar, then a table slightly further back and ultimately a lovely quiet booth. It was 9pm and not crowded so why not start with that?
