A word from Raven & Rose
Raven & Rose offers classic farmhouse cookery, fine cocktails, beer and wine in Portland’s historic Ladd Carriage House. The first-floor dining room features the finest, simply-prepared cuisine, rooted in American cooking and influenced by the British Isles. The atmosphere is warm and inviting with the highest level of attentive, friendly service.

The second-floor vaulted hayloft space is now a classic bar and lounge furnished with leather sofas, armchairs and cocktail tables that is at once intimate and grand, with soaring open trusses and a beautiful fireplace. It provides an exclusive hideaway for sipping cocktails inspired by the building’s exuberant history, for meeting friends for a game of chess or billiards, or enjoying after-dinner drinks, coffee and dessert.

Diner Reviews
  • "Loved the atmosphere. The upstairs bar is amazing with open beam work and a nostalgic old time bar feel. Great service, great food, very welcoming. Would highly reccomend this place."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I was thrilled to celebrate my 40th birthday at Raven and Rose. The owner seamlessly made our first visit memorable. I will be a repeat customer and recommend Raven and Rose to all my friends."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I am pretty picky on food, so three star is a good score for food. We went for lunch, many of the dinner specialties are not available. They could be more interesting food wise. We had mussel and qiche, both were good. The most interesting part is however its history and setting, very nice and romantic. We went up and tour the bar area as well, again very interesting. Service was very good and friendly. All in all, this is a good place to take out of town guests."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Omg yum! R&R is delicioso! I went there not wanting too sour of a drink and the steward was able to attend to my needs and advise the house 'old fashioned', which was truly marvelous."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We had a lovely meal here with great service & very nice food. The wine list okay; but the beer choices are superb! Service was warm, friendly, & professional. (Only critique was the 80's music which didn't suit the ambiance...)"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We came here on Father's Day, not knowing that there was a special family-style menu for the evening. The server took the time to make sure that we ordered everything that we would want, didn't over-order, but had the perfect dinner. His beer suggestion was spot-on and we were made to feel very welcome. We were shown the space upstairs which functions as a bar, as well as a rental for private parties. We can't wait to come back and check out the bar scene some evening. We will definitely be back for dinner."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "A delicious meal served by a very attentive and delightful team. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The drinks are quite expensive and not what we expected. The Bloody Mary had too much horse radish and the Irish coffee was made with expresso. We could not taste the liquor in either. The food was decent, considering how many customers were being served. The corned hash and poached eggs were especially good."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Went for brunch - food was great but service definitely needs improvement. We were initially not attended and once i tried to ask someone to come over he became very pushy. While all of our friends were chatting, he just stood between our seats and interrupted our conversation to take the orders. Also we were automatically charged gratuity although we have one baby and 1 very young kid. If service can be improved, this place will rock."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Dining here for the first time and we were impressed. Service was outstanding and very friendly. Food was extremely tasty. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 9/6/2013
  • "Our second visit to R&R was a disappointment. Server was disheveled and full of himself. Food was fair. A request for a change to sides was met with scorn making my wife feel unimportant, and this was her birthday. We will not return."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The food and ambiance of this place was great. It is in an old victorian house nestled in bustle of downtown portland. The food was good as was the service. Great place to go for a business lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Wonderful location, food, drink, and dining room but the wait staff can ruin your experiance."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Had friends in from Denmark visiting. There were 5 of us all together and we each ordered different items. Everything was wonderful and just the right amount. Service was great. I had the lamb shoulder and it just melted in my mouth. We decided to visit the bar upstairs for an after dinner drink and they had such a nice list of specialty drinks we had two."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We had a delicious and lovely dinner- slow to get drinks and dinner started but over a lovely experience!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "My pork chop was over cooked. Two guests in our party had salmon with berries and they said it was excellent. My husband had a rib eye that was "good." So overall it was a mixed bag. It isn't cheap and for the price I thought it could definitely have been better."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We've lived in Portland for 7 months and have eaten out 2-3 times/wk at a whole variety of places - this is probably the best meal we've had. Others came close but this pipped them. Service was v. good (Tracy). Welsh Rarebit and Ribeye excellent (although the Yorkshire Pud wasn't as good as my mother's). My wife had Beet Salad and Raven Cheese Plate- she was particularly taken with the honey with the blue cheese - an unusual combination. My 2 complaints - atmosphere in the 3 booths behind check-in is like sitting in a corridor, which you are and draft beer selection is a bit limited - other than that can't recommend this place highly enough. Its not cheap but is less so that other places claiming to be fine dining without the same success."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I ate here about a year ago and had an amazing dining experience. I'd been raving about this place to all ever since. I was so excited to bring my son here on weekend trip to Portland. It was an embarrassment. My son's steak was ok, but bland. My rabbit was completely inedible. Overcooked to a beyond rubbery texture. I hoped desserts would redeem the meal but they were nothing special. Just sugary concoctions. Yuk. So disappointing. My original memory forever tarnished. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Raven and Rose, housed in the historic Ladd Carriage house, is a welcome addition to the Portland food scene. The food is hard to categorize - nominally American fine dining but with notable Irish and British pub food influences (think Yorkshire puddings, Irish stews, and mustardy sauces). The menu tends to be heavy on meat, though there are always fish/vegetarian options, and includes a variety of custom cocktails and extensive wine/non-alcoholic drink list. Despite the old-school feel, service is not-as-stuffy-as-you'd-expect. Still a step below the finest restaurants in Portland, but an excellent all-around restaurant."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We had reservations this past Sunday for our anniversary. It was for 8.30pm. 1. They didn't have a table reserved and sat us at a table right behind a really load pair of people at the bar. 1. They only had their 'Sunday Roast' package: Beef, Pork or Fish. When we tried to order the Prime Rib, they had run out. 2. We settled for the Pork. We received mostly fat in our meat. Each slice was 50% fat. Waitress shrugged when we told her. The manager came, doesn't look at us, and starts to clear our plates. He says "We were going to pay for your dessert as it is your anniversary. But what do you want now? More food?". He was rude, sullen and unhelpful at best. Our experience was not positive. We left feeling bullied, and $100 poorer. "

  • "Raven & Rose always does a great brunch. The Irish coffee is a particular standout."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Superb cuisine with a wine list to match. Very enjoyable"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Food was excellent, staff very friendly and attentive, environment clean, comfortable and trendy. I will definitely go back again! Thanks to a Grimm episode for the exposure, I was not disappointed. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I had eaten here before and were very pleased, but this time was even better. Everything was cooked right and very tasty. the sauces on both dishes were smooth and flavorful. There was a nice mix of common and unusual ingredients. I had never had frikeh before, and I didn't find it freaky at all. The service was friendly, but not overly so, and the wine steward made an excellent recommendation for wine that would compliment both our meals and be within our price range. We were both very pleased with this dining experience."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We dined on a warm and particularly quiet evening where we had much of the restaurant to ourselves. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and the portions were just right. The service was slow which may be due to preparing everything fresh, but the quality was worth it. I ordered the Diver Scallops which I thought were too salty, but the accompanying potato croquettes were perfect and helped balance them out a little. Dessert was amazing, and not to be missed! I definitely plan to try their brunch sometime."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Saturday brunch was tasty with fine service. The old carriage house is charming and is conveniently located in the cultural district close to PSU and other attractions. We would go back for dinner."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I would definitely go back to check out the upstairs bar. My only suggestion is to make sure it's known beforehand that a special menu is served on Sunday nights. I wasn't aware when I booked. Food was great though and service was friendly."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had never been to Raven & Rose but had received a recommendation from friends. We made reservations for a Friday evening for a long-awaited date night (new baby at home). The service was great and the food was elegant. Both dinners were very high quality but not like when you get a meal and are hungry an hour afterwards. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good experience that has a romantic vibe. We were only in the dining room (floor 1) so I am not sure what the bar atmosphere is like. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Admittedly I went here because I saw it on an episode of Grimm. But dang, they know how to do it, and from the ambiance (with wood-burning pizza stove), to tall-boy dining tables and inventive cuisine, I hope it stays around for a while. I'll be back!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Our dinner was very good and the choice of vegetables was really good. The flavors perfect. The desserts, however, were expensive for the size. Very small and costly, yet certainly tasty. I recommend passing on the desserts"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were celebrating my daughter's college graduation. We had a party of 6, ranging in age from 15 to 75. Raven and Rose offered a small but good cocktail and wine menu (we got bubbly!) and a fairly small dinner menu. The food was delicious. They ran out of salmon before I placed my order, so I got scallops. They were fabulous. The only downside was the lack of vegetarian/vegan options for my daughter, but I warned her before we got there that there might not be many vegan options for her. There was one vegetarian entree. Excellent service. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Enjoyed a fabulous Mother's Day Sunday supper...roast choice of slow roasted lamb shoulder or prime rib with excellent Yorkshire pudding and a huge choice of delicious fresh vegetables imaginatively prepared. Choice of dessert for $35 a head...would highly recommend ...and will return another Sunday. Kudos to the owner for the great idea...we miss our British Sunday roasts..."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I had never been to Raven and Rose and thought it would be a good spot for Mother's Day. The restaurant is beautiful both inside and out. Everyone was very friendly. Our waiter was very attentive in the beginning but seemed to taper off at the end. I had to flag him down to get our bill. It happens. We had the donuts to start and they were delicious. For my meal I had the fish and chips, which was excellent. My Mom had the rhubarb French toast and this is where the meal went wrong. I am not sure if it was a mistake or not but whatever the bread was dipped in was very salty. Overall I would still recommend this restaurant and we will return! We will just pass on the french toast next time."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I took my mother to this restaurant for mother's day. We had a very tasty brunch: fish and chips, mimosas, and a fabulous rhubarb/strawberry tart. It's fun to eat in this restored building. The service was exceptional. I will go back for another meal."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Had a lovely Mother's Day brunch, attentive service, great food."

  • "Excellent attentive service and one of the best smokey bloody marys I've ever tasted!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Despite the fact that we arrived 30 min. early and we were accomodated immediately. The service was wonderful and the food and wine excellent. My salmon was fresh and flavorful, the soup I couldn't get enough of. Both our drinks (my wife had a Cosmo and we both had Irish Coffee for desert) were the best we have ever had. I can't wait to come back!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I have dined at R&R before and been satisfied, but this experience was a disappointment. There were 4 in my party for lunch at 1. Our waiter's behavior set the stage. He appeared at our table, immediately rattled off the specials as though prerecorded, and completely failed to notice that we were in the middle of a conversation. After serving our drinks he disappeared for at least 15 minutes before taking our lunch orders. Three of us ordered fish and chips, clearly not a house special as they were mostly about the batter. Finally, at the end of the meal, one of our guests had to leave the table to get our bill. The restaurant was not busy, so we don't understand our waiter's failure to provide courteous service. "

  • "...ever since relocating to Portland a few years ago. It felt very good to be in such a historical building so well preserved on the exterior. The interior was so modernized it was a bit of a disappointment but there were so lovely pictures and period hanging lantern chandeliers. I would return. The brunch food was delicious and the seating comfortable. Go."

  • "We totally enjoyed our meals, including the appetizers, beer, main courses. The staff were all exceedingly friendly. Will definitely return, soon."
