Higgins is a fixture of Portland dining. Nice ambiance, good service, and quality dishes, if not especially creative. Also noteworthy is an exceptional beer selection!

“Ok....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Made same-day reservations for a business colleague and me on a Wednesday night... I was advised that the only table available at our requested time was in a high traffic area, which was fine with me. We were seated promptly and the table was just fine. I loved our server...full of personality, but not overbearing in any way. The food was fine, but nothing memorable for me. We shared a mushroom fonduta special as an appetizer, then I went for the "pig plate," based on recommendations from TA. It was good, but again...just not great or memorable. I may stop in to have a burger at the bar, as it's so close to the Heathman where I stay when I'm in town...but will likely venture out elsewherem as there is so much spectacular food to choose from.

“Good service and great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

It was full the night we arrived so we had lunch instead. This restaurant was recommended by Hotel Modera. Must have the pastrami sandwich - one of the best I have ever tasted. Portions are very generous especially for lunch.

“great cozy neighborhood spot serving farm to table northwest cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

What a great place. The fig salad was the best salad I have ever eaten. The charcuterie platter was a masterpiece of meat all made on premises. The whole pig was amazing. The waiter's suggestions were spot on ...from the wine to dessert . Who would have thought for dessert chocolate cake with lavender? Highly recommended for a delicious dinner any day of the week.
