Pink Rose Bar & Kitchen reviews from OpenTable diners
- Was not able to use my OpenOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/30/2013Was not able to use my Open Table reservation for Pink Rose Bar and Kitchen, as they only honor reservations for 6 people or more - mine was for 4 people. Would have been nice had they not allowed to make a reservation for that number in the first place. Since I was not aware of that, we showed up and I was told that we could wait an hour to be seated outside or sit downstairs in their smelly cave that doubles as their inside restaurant. Moral of the story - DO NOT make reservations on Open Table for Pink Rose unless you have over 6 people, as they will not honor them and they will treat you like you are the idoit!
- The food was good, but....OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 3/17/2013We went to Pink Rose after the Shamrock Run. It was a Sunday, so we expected it to be busy. We had made a reservation WEEKS in advance hoping to save ourselves the trouble of waiting for a table. We arrived slightly early for our reservation & ended up waiting over an hour to get seated.. Only after I asked how much longer we were going to have to wait was I informed that 'We actually quit taking reservations on Sundays, but it shouldn't be too much longer.'.. I find that kind of funny, considering I have a confrimation number for the reservation that I made online. If you don't take reservations on Sundays, maybe you should notate that on your website, or call us to let us know before we show up at our 'appointed time'.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The Burger still reigns.Eater10000VIPDined on 2/22/2013We went to get our usual burgers, mine beef and hers vegetarian. Our only disappointment is that they no longer make the excellent veggie burger, replacing it with a fried green tomato. The fried green tomato is good, but not as good as the veggie burger. My hamburger was quite good and I really like the french fries. You really need to try this burger.Special Features:
- Love the Pink Rose!OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 11/23/2012Pink Rose was great. When we showed up it was pretty empty. The staff let us pick where to sit. Even though we sat away from everyone else, they were very attentive. We never were waiting for a drink or our food. We only had Brussell sprouts.. but man they were amazing. I can't wait to go back.Special Features:
- Still great burgers.Eater10000VIPDined on 11/23/2012I was really happy that the full-sized burger has returned. While the sliders were inventive, I really like the big burger. The veggie burger remains among the best in Portland, and the french fries are also very good. I really hope that food critics find this menu, as it's among the best and best values that I have had.Special Features:
- Best Small Menu AroundEater10000VIPDined on 11/2/2012While the menu is relatively small, every single item that we have tried has been really delicious. From the cocktails to the burgers, the quality is very, very high. The hamburger sliders are innovative, and the veggie versions are among the best in Portland. (The pulled pork version is my favorite.) Many places in town now have a signature mac & cheese; the version at Pink Rose will easily stand among the best.Special Features:
- Always the best way to startOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/13/2012Always the best way to start a saturday or sunday with friends or family! I had an out of town guest that thought the food was delicious and demands to come everytime she visits. Even with a large group the service was fantastic and mimosas are a must. Thank you!Special Features:
- Odd Location though Superb FoodEater10000VIPDined on 9/28/2012We had gone to the Pink Rose a couple of months ago and had a good meal, so we returned hoping that it would be consistent. The odd location is that it's mostly underground, though there is a patio above. Admittedly, the menu is larger than we ordered, as both times my spouse had the veggie burger and I had the poblano, pulled pork cheeseburger. Bother are truly notable and make the Pink Rose a true destination. At some point, we'll try other dishes, as many look good . . . though it will be hard to skip the burgers.Special Features:
- Brunch and MimosasOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 8/26/2012Bottomless Mimosas for $12 is a great deal for decent champagne. We had a great server who wasn't shy in pouring, so if it took a little longer than normal to refill our drinks, we were just perfect. With reservations it still took almost 20 minutes to get sat in the patio, but having said that, when my party and I got sat, we stayed for a lot longer than would be usual for that type of dining. It's nice to enjoy outside brunch, with bottomless mimosas, in the pearl district, its natural to want to enjoy Sunday Brunch--so I understand the wait. The patio area can be a little small depending on the size of the table sitting next to you and if they brought dogs. This is the place for a lazy Sunday brunch with no obligations and no where to beSpecial Features:
- It was okay. Somewhat smallOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 8/17/2012It was okay. Somewhat small portions, but the ambiance was decent. The rosé Friday bubbles were a bit too sweet for my liking, but the Rose burger was cooked just on the under side of medium rare, which was well-done.
- Great food at reasonable prices.OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/16/2012Great food at reasonable prices. Wonderful ambiance.Special Features:
- Love every aspect of thisOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 8/11/2012Love every aspect of this sweet little spot...everyone that works there is so amazing and friendly!! Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy a good meal great atmosphere and great serviceSpecial Features:
- Our second time there. SatOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/3/2012Our second time there. Sat outdoors on a lovely evening. Drinks and food was great!Special Features:
- The outdoor dinning is openOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/27/2012The outdoor dinning is open to all the noise and abiance of downtown while the inside is dark and cramped. The low lighting would be good for a nice romantic dinner but not good for groups. The staff was a bit standoffish and food was over priced for the dish presented. The decor was interesting and unique. We were lucky to have the place mostly to ourselves. The music system was down the first half but that made for easier chatting and visiting enviroment. While the ambiance and overall experience was not bad, it was not the style of place or location that we are likley to revisit.Special Features:
- The service was extremelyOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/12/2012The service was extremely slow. We were told that it was a small kitchen and that the patio had just filled up and ordered. We were sitting inside. I think they could have used someone to wait tables inside. But the staff was friendly and the food was excellent.
- It was dark inside, incrediblyOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/1/2012It was dark inside, incredibly noisy, and the staff were not particularly friendly. I think outside might have been better but the day was overcast. I had eggs Benedict and my potatoes were cold. I apologized to my group for making reservations here!
- bar service was poor. guysgsuarezVIPDined on 6/27/2012bar service was poor. guys was distracted didn;t pay attention to all people in the party and the drink (negroni) was not prepared correctly...forgot the Gin
- Unexpectedly ExcellentEater10000VIPDined on 6/22/2012Given that you are walking into a "basement" it's not enticing to enter, so we were a little unsure. Even so, we were greeted pleasantly and seated. The waiter was truly outstanding, as he made good recommendations and described the dishes well. We had the brussel sprouts, which make trying Pink Rose worthwhile by themselves. We both had burgers. The veggie burger is excellent and would rival for the best in the city. The pork/poblano burger is sublime and the Fleur de Lis roll for the bun is an perfect choice. Oh, yes, the fries are suberb.Special Features:
- Our favorite place in theCindyDined on 6/17/2012Our favorite place in the Pearl District. My husband and I love date night and Sunday brunch. How that my hours have changed at work we will be able to meet friends for happy hour! Amazing menu too!Special Features:
- They need to hire more serversJenniferDined on 6/17/2012They need to hire more servers on busy days like Sunday brunch, but otherwise a great place.Special Features:
- The office max store kindaLuv0urDatesDined on 6/16/2012The office max store kinda ruined the ambiance of the patio seating:/
- I didn't know it was possibleOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 6/10/2012I didn't know it was possible to reserve a table outdoors (nor that it would be a nice enough day to do that), so we ended up sitting inside (which means basement.) Pink Rose is probably a great bar, but the ambiance was just not pleasant for a Sunday brunch. Kudos to the waitstaff who immediately turned down the very loud music (so loud that we couldn't talk to each other) when we asked. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive.Special Features:
- While the restraunt has aOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/8/2012While the restraunt has a great menu the food was not executed as well as it could have been. Both of the dishes we had were overcooked, it was really prevelent with the salmon. If you want a burger and a drink it may be ok. I will not be going back.Special Features:
- We had heard the food wasOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 6/3/2012We had heard the food was fantastic and we were not dissapointed. Just don't be the first customers there for brunch. We arrived at opening and they were clearly not ready (the waiter walked in 5 minutes before we did). We were never offered the special (we heard it offered to others who came in after us) and had to wait 20 minutes for coffee. It came after our food. We were later told the coffee maker wasn't working but you would have thought someone would after checked that before 10 am. But again the breakfast was pretty much one of the best we have ever had so we would go there again.Special Features:
- Our waiter Delgardo gave usOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/2/2012Our waiter Delgardo gave us amazing service - I brought in 11 of my girlfriends so we were big group and he was so accommodating (and Pink Rose in general). Just overall a small, romantic, and fun restaurant with great food.Special Features:
- The Filet Mignon was deliciousYoliDined on 5/31/2012The Filet Mignon was delicious & the presentation was superb! The lettuce salad was quite large but also very good!Special Features:
- Their braised shirt ribs wereOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 5/25/2012Their braised shirt ribs were delicious. My husband ordered their special sheimp pasta in a sweet spicy red sauce. Portions are small so luckily we had room for their hot chocolate lava cake topped with ice cream. This was the highlight of our meal at Pink Rose and something we would definitely go back for!Special Features:
- We went there for Brunch onOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/20/2012We went there for Brunch on a coupon offer. The patrons were mainly 20-30 so as a retired couple we felt out of place. I do not know if he bottomless mimosas were the draw for the younger crowd that morning. A little too noisy for me. The food was very good and our server on top of her game even though there were a couple larger groups and she was working as the only server. I would recommend this as a great place for younger patrons, but probably not to some one in my age group.Special Features:
- Oops - no table for reservation.OpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 5/15/2012Showed up at 5:45 for a 6pm reservation on the patio only to find all the patio seating was taken and no one had reserved a table as we'd asked.Decided to go elsewhere as it was a nice day and we didn't want to dine inside.Manager was nice and apologetic, and said he understood. Someone had goofed up and there was supposed to be a table set aside for us.
- Good food, reasonable prices.OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 5/13/2012Good food, reasonable prices. Can't wait to come back to try their happy hour!Special Features:
- Food is great, but our waiterOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/11/2012Food is great, but our waiter was rude and I think that ruins the experience. I'd go back but I hope I never get that guy again. Normally people in Portland are nice and nonjudgmental but his guy was very stuck up.Special Features:
- Very nice restaurant. BeautifulOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/4/2012Very nice restaurant. Beautiful setting. We really enjoyed dinner.Special Features:
- Go for the food & the ambianceLuraLouCDined on 4/29/2012In a nutshell, I was really looking forward to brunch at the Pink Rose (my first), but left disappointed. The restaurant itself is really nice. The food; good. The patio; awesome. However; our server was rude. She accused one of our party of arguing with her - when he asked for drink prices (only after requesting a drink menu and her saying she could not find one). She even went so far as to say that he was making her uncomfortable with his questions about prices. Duh! Go find a menu or ask another server. I emailed the restaurant and the proprietor called and left me a really nice message. I would go back, but would refuse to sit in the section of that same server.Special Features:
- Odd space, great food. It'spdxdinerDined on 4/21/2012Odd space, great food. It's downstairs from an Office Max store, and the outdoor dining is upstairs, directly in front of the store. The downstairs is tiny and cavelike, which might appeal in our typically rainy climate. But for dining, it looked like tables were for 2-4, and you'd be lucky to squeeze 10 people total into the bar area. Upstairs, there's not much to look at but office buildings. But the food is amazing! We loved our drinks -- a mojioto like "Last But Not Least" and a sweet version of an Old Fashioned made with honey bourbon. The chorizo-stuffed mushrooms and bacon-wrapped dates were hot and tasty, and our Painted Hills burgers were cooked to perfection.Special Features:
- The food was really very good,OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 4/21/2012The food was really very good, but not enough to overcome the really poor service. We ordered all of the food at once. We ordered two entrees, roasted brussel spouts to share and some bread. 10 minutes after finishing our large plates, the brussel sprouts arrived, followed by bread. Comping the brussels and bread would have helped, but didn't happen.
- Second time there for brunch,OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/21/2012Second time there for brunch, it never disappoints.Special Features:
- Truly great. The only thingOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 4/18/2012Truly great. The only thing is that minors are not allowed in the restaurant and I had my 20 1/2 year old neice with me. We ate on the patio, which was lovely and luckily not too chilly. Jason was our server and was OUTSTANDING and very accomodating. The food (we both has the fish of the day) was perfect. We also had the house made ice cream which was fabulous!Special Features:
- The food we had was actuallyOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/14/2012The food we had was actually quite good, as was the service. However, there were other issues. We ordered about 7:30 on a Saturday night and they were out of burgers, shrimp and some of the specials. The portions were quite small. Cheese platters are usually less than generous but their's for $12 was barely enough for one person. In addition, the wine list was ridiculous, only 4 or 5 choices for each category. There was not enough variety to find one we liked. If they could address these other issues I would come back for the food.
- My date and I went for brunchOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/8/2012My date and I went for brunch and it was good. The menu wasn't super big but had great choices.Special Features:
