    The food was well prepared and the appearance also fine, but the amount was small (no bread served). We suspect maybe it's a new chef. Not as good as before.

    My wife and I had the chef's tasting menu and I had the wine pairing. It wasn't too much food and the desert was fantastic. It was a pricey meal but it was a great birthday treat for my wife.

    Portage is by far one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle! The service can at times be a little slow for the the fact that its a small restaurant. Would go back for sure mostly for their duck and their wine list!

    This restaurant has very good food, service and ambience. For some the menu may be limited but the restaurant offers daily specials. Prices are reasonable but watch for the splitting charges: $3 for splitting an $11 salad is excessive. Also the bar features some notable cocktails and the wine list has something for all price ranges.

    We stopped in to have dinner and we were lucky enough to get a table outside. We brought our own bottle ($25 corkage), so I don't have anything to say about the wine list. My husband ordered the soup of the day and it was the highlight of our meal. The chicken and steak mains were something I would have been proud of myself if I made it at home but not that impressed with it at a restaurant. Overall, I loved the sidewalk dining and the off the menu specials but my our entrees leff something to be desired.

    Attentive staff, cosy place and perfect portion sizes for when you want to eat out without being weighed down by greasy food. Melon & strawberry gazpacho and scallops risotto were excellent.

    Menu was a little confusing regarding the 4-course set dinner vs making your own choices. Waitress was able to explain. Wine parings were generally excellent. Service was good. Waitress was very friendly & helpful & attentive. Serving portions were adequate. Chef could benefit by coming out & mingling with patrons more & being friendly. My partner is Vietnamese & specifically asked the waitress if he could meet him. He came out & was cooly polite, but made no attempt to converse.

    Food was good and the size of portions were good for me, but it was too small for my friend. Another words, very pricey for the size.

    We went for my birthday, without realizing it was Restaurant Week in Seattle. We were prepared to spend, since it was a special occasion. I was a bit put off by casual attire (it made us stick out a bit), but the food was superb. Our major disappointment was that the regular menu wasn't available, so we shall have to return. Aw shucks.

    Dined on 2/25/2013
    What a fantastic and charming find! My foodie boyfriend and I dined on a Monday evening and were treated to lovely service and delicious, comforting food. The scallops with potato risotto was by far our favorite. The love and care that was put into preparing the food here is most evident. We can't wait to go back and celebrate many more special occasions there.

    Absolutely phenomenal cuisine - beautifully presented and delicious. My partner and I shared the beet and Roquefort Mille-feuille (which I could savor every day!) and I had the scallops with risotto. Wonderful! Every last bite. We sat in a cozy, romantic nook and split a cocktail. Can't wait to try the pear and creme fraiche dessert next time. We will be back - again and again!
