“Excellent brunch”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Snuck in out of the rain looking for good brunch on a Saturday around 11 am and couldn't have found a better place. Great brunch menu. Plenty of microbrews for husband and terrific selection of teas for me. Could have stayed all afternoon at the friendly and comfortable bar. Will be back next time we are in Portland.

“Upscale Pub Food”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Me and my fiance did not like the food but I gave it an average review because some folks would like it. Think pub food with a twist and imagine lots of deep fried greasy stuff. I always try to order healthy stuff and the meals I selected that did sound healthy on the menu were really greasy and left a oily taste in my mouth. I love the Kimpton brand and have never given a bad review for their restaurants but this one I would have to say was disappointing. It is however a great casual place to come to and have a meal. But if you enjoy restaurants like Vertible Quandry then this place isn't for you.

“Not Fantastic”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Tried here for dinner. Hotel was fantastic, we loved it big time...Hoping food was the same. Started with squid ($14 for 4 small pieces), had a beer each, and a steak each. Bill was about $85 for nothing fabulous. Save your $ and check out the nearby food carts for a much more satisfying meal for much, much, much less (without the beer!) Head to Kelly's bar down the road for laid back, good selection of drinks after the carts. Cheers!

“Even breakfast is good”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We stayed next store at the Monaco and stopped in here for drinks one night and breakfast one morning. Breakfast was lovely and of course the atmosphere was especially nice.
