Fantastic rolls and biscuits-homemade style chicken and dumplings was delicious paired with mac n cheese. Crab cakes, cole slaw with potatoes are decent.
Loved the giant slab of choc cake and cookies. Very nice decor, heavy on the chandeliers. Friendly, nice, effecient servers.
Reasonably priced big and good food with warm Portland style hospitality.

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!
