“Oso Buco Wow!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Just had my birthday dinner at the VQ. The food was outstanding. 3 of us ordered Oso Buco. We melted into our chairs as we ate that wonderful food. The service was perfect.

“Great find in Portland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Had an awesome dinner at this hustling bustling restaurant in Downtown, Portland. The portions were generous, service attentive but most of all, the food was excellent!

“A Standard for Portland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

I've eaten here several times - it's consistently good. It's hard to get reservations in their main dining room at the last moment but there's nearly always room in the bar where there are seats at the bar and also booths against the wall.

The seafood stew was excellent; my partner had a steak that he rated highly.
