“Super Good Food - Very Nice Staff”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Portland. Once for lunch on our first day and back again for breakfast on our last day. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The food is delicious and the menu offers a good selection. Our experience with the service and food was great. They also offer a bonus, free cookies with the check!! YUM!

This was my favorite spot in Portland for dining. They have several rooms including a lounge. It's comfortable, has chic elegance, & a really eclectic and unique menu.

We've tried several times to do brunch here on trips to Portalnd and reservations are the way to go. We were seated within 10 minutes of arrival. The food, beverages and service didn't disappoint!

“A Little Bit of Heaven in Portland”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Mother's offers a variety of dishes - from imaginative to homey. They also have a nice selection of local wines. The atmosphere is Northwest funky, with a cozy bar area and both indoor and outside seating. Most of the folks in our group who tried Mothers made a point to go back before we left the city.
