We agreed this was one of our new favorites. I know my husband and I will return. The season greens salad with beets was delicious. Everyone loved their entrees.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dinner I had at Bar AvignonThe dinner I had at Bar Avignon was delicious and inventive, with some foods I would never have put together (such as a sweet pea risotto) along with more comforting fare, such as roast chicken. The service was impeccable, the location is great, and the restaurant, while busy, still set us up nicely. The food was very well done and in larger portions than I've come to expect at Portland restaurants, to the point where I couldn't finish my dessert and had leftovers for one of the dishes (for which I am very pleased!).4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Gem, shhhhhhhh keep it secret!A true neighborhood gem. Smallish, cozy, casual . Very personable, friendly, warm and inviting with great food, a wonderful place to go to experience fresh quality foods prepared in delicious and distinct ways with expert advice on wine parings. Gourmet done expertly and simply. They serve small plates and full entrees, the menu changes often, the wine list is huge, and the bar drinks are excellent - also a great selection. Desserts are creative, and delicious, and the portion size is right, or try a flight of beautiful sherry or port, a new and wonderful experience for us. The lighting is soft, the noise level is energetic, the background music is well selected by staff, and not loud. We love it.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was outstanding,Everything was outstanding, we were a little disappointed that some items on the raw spring menu were 86'd by the time we arrived but still the overall experience was wonderful.
