    I am sure there were lovely flavors hidden in our three meals somewhere, but the overwhelming abundance of salt in our food made it impossible to enjoy. This is the second time we have experienced a less than satisfactory meal at Raven & Rose so it will have to be our last.

    Service was pretty bad, and table not ready at reservation time and was being pushed to eat at the bar by multiple people. Wrong food placed in front of us, wine not refilled, wrong bar drink, little follow up, dessert taken away before finished after not bring the right dessert items. I'm not usually crazy picky but for the costs here, I expect better.

    Made a reservation and table was ready within a minute of our arrival. Service was great. Looked like only one vegetarian option on the menu and it was pasta. We all had meat. Three of us had the hangar steak. We all liked it a lot, but the portion was quite large and we all took home leftovers. The fourth person had the pork and said it was also quite good. There was some disappointment in the beer list, but that was probably because the restaurant was participating in a "fresh hops" event in Portland and the beer drinkers all preferred a less hop-intense beer. I ordered a cocktail that wasn't on the menu, but they fixed it for me anyway.

    Everything about this restaurant is amazing! The first time we went, it was for my husband's and I 24th anniversary. David, the bartender/manager (?) sent us each a glass of a mixed drink, his own concoction. It was wonderful. We happened to go on a Sunday night, which is their weekly "Sunday Roast." Everything is served family style. After the meal, we had butterscotch pudding, which was deliciously creamy, but not overly sweet. We ended the night by drinking Absinthe. The presentation of the Absinthe, given by Dave, was very cool to watch. We loved Raven and Rose so much, that we came back 2 weeks later, which may not seem that big of a deal to anyone, however, we live in the San Francisco Area. :-)

    Food was absolutely excellent! Service was prompt, nonintrusive, and friendly. We were scheduled to see a show at the Schnitzer auditorium at 7:30 and when we let the hostess know she knew all about the artist and we had an interesting conversation about him (Ben Folds). She wanted to go but was working, serving us. These are not cheap eats but worth the time for special occasions. Only complaint? Those single huge ice cubes in the mixed drinks. They seem to be popping up in several locales and I find it impossible to get the right mix of cold ice and alcohol in my mouth. I just don't find that huge cube appealing and it SEEMS to make your actual drink volume smaller. Ditch the big guy or give us a choice of crush or smaller cubes.

    The menu looked interesting and the reviews were good so our party of 6 eagerly anticipated dinner here. The menu offerings were unusual and tasty but the service was frustratingly slow and rather abrupt though it wasn't terribly busy. From a value standpoint as well as overall dining experience, Higgins would have been a considered better value and more enjoyable experience. We'll know better next time!

    Delightful restored and repurposed historic building, fun interior, attentive and friendly service. Before-meal drinks and appetizer were entertaining and delicious, our four entrees were each perfectly cooked -- soft salmon with crispy skin, fork-tender rabbit, thinly sliced tender beef and gently-smoked pork. The sides were intriguing and delicious, from full-flavored lentils to magnificent Yorkshire pudding and all the vegetables in between. Only miss was a delicious sweet onion tart with a slightly tough crust. Couldn't finish butterscotch pudding and chocolate cake, but it wasn't for lack of trying. Beverage list had any choice we could want -- scotch, tequila, whisky, port, wine, imaginative cocktails. Will definitely return.

    We had charming service from all of the employees, from the young man learning the front to the person who delivered our plates to the table. I first ate at R & R for a friend's large birthday brunch, where the lively variety of food ordered let us all enjoy many of the dishes on the menu. As we left, an employee responded to our questions about the restaurant by taking us on a tour upstairs, teaching us the history of the Ladd carriage house (now R & R), and the history of its move. The food at R & R is imaginative and tastes amazing. For our dinner last night, we had a 1 hour window before leaving for a concert, and the waiter strategized with us to make sure we ate well and got our check promptly. Dinner was a delight.

    We waited 20 minutes for drinks to arrive and one hour for food. My beer came 3/4 full. The food was good to very good. The server was pretty bad in general--she forgot about the specials until we asked if there were any, didn't know whether any beers were on draft that weren't on the menu and was unapologetic for the delays. The tables around us seemed to be having a similar experience, so we didn't take it personally.

Wine list was strong and well priced. Food was very good. We enjoyed potted local shrimp, shrimp and clams baked in wood-fired oven, Columbia River salmon, steak tartare, and butterscotch dessert.

    Everything we ordered was just about perfect. The salad with smoked cheddar had beautiful fresh greens layered with radishes and just the right whiff of smoky cheese. The pickled bay shrimp appetizer was served in a brine so perfectly balanced and flavorful I wanted to lap it up. It came with incredibly light and tender house-made crackers, fresh bread, and butter. We loved the preparations of both the pork and beef entrees, with portions so generous we took a good amount home to enjoy the next day. We shared the butterscotch pudding dessert and were glad we didn't pass it up. Our waiter was attentive and well-informed, very helpful, as was all the staff. Highly recommend!

    From the exquisite renovation of an historic Portland building to the warmth of a responsive staff to the Portland tradition of using the farmer’s market when possible, this rates as a top place for visitors to Portland. The skills of the sommelier and bar staff complement the excellent dining experience.

    We went to R & R on our anniversary last Thursday. I was surprised not to see many people there (they were probably upstairs in the beautiful bar). The renovated building is lovely; service and food were terrific. My wife had the hangar steak and I the rabbit; we started with potted shrimp and green salad respectively. Riesling wine was excellent, and I even got an "extra": a taste of another excellent pinot noir to go with the rabbit dish. Prices are rather high, but I think it was worth it.

    Brought out of town guests here as I wanted to try a new spot- food was really phenomenal, front of house was gracious, welcoming and informative (the building has historical significance). Plenty of small plates to do a tapas-like meal, and we all split one entree- house-made tagliatelle, and even though this is not a specifically Italian restaurant, the chef knows what al dente means, and the pasta had just the right amount of sauce. Will be back with local friends and likely make it a regular spot, very reasonable prices for the quality of the food, plus they serve bread from Ken's Artisan bakery - nuff said!
