“VQ”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

VQ is short on space, so be sure to geta reservation or come early. The food is well worth it. They also have meal service in the bar, but again you have to be early They have a nice patio for drinks and bar food in the summer, which provides a great place for conversation. Food is mainly Northwest cooking, very well prepared.

“Great appetizers, quaint building atmosphere”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

From the outside you may not know how cool this place is. And what you come for food beds do not disappoint. Apps, small bites shine with duck spring rolls, wood fired flatbread pizza and more. If you are into Manhattans their version is yummy and a tad unique with cardamon spice. Enjoy the cozy inner space and when Portland weather cooperates the welcomed patio area just "under" the Morrison bridge.

“Always wonderful!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I eat lunch at VQ 2-3 times per week so obviously enjoy it. I just have to give a shout-out today, however, for the incredible salad I enjoyed: barley and pulled chicken. Included were brussels sprouts leaves, peppered chevre, toasted pecans, and cara cara oranges. Compliments to chef Annie Cuggino for a wonderfully creative dish!

“Everything you want in a restaurant”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I've eaten many times in VQ and have never been disappointed. The menu is extensive, the food well-presented and tastes fantastic. The wine list has just what you want and the service is wonderful. What more can you want?

“This is a "go to" place”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

My husband and I have been going here for many years. Before a Cirque or show downtown its a great location. Food is good, service has been exceptional. I love sitting outside in the garden area.
