I brought my parents here as a thank-you for being awesome parents and for paying to cater my wedding. We requested the patio via OpenTable and got a great seat outside! The restaurant was packed, but we never felt neglected by our server and our food, drinks and apps all came out quickly. Our server was wonderful and knowledgeable. The food was killer and I didn't die of sticker shock when the check came.
A bottle of wine, two beers, a salad and an appetizer, four entrees, a port flight, a glass of scotch and an amazing dessert for under $200, amazing! All top quality, with a view to boot, I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience.

Great views, going back soon!
A friend and I went for happy hour on a Friday. We made a reservation a few days before and requested to sit outside. When we got there at 5:30, the whole place was packed, but they had saved a nice little table out on the patio for us. I ordered the Italian Alpine which was delicious and the cheese plate. My friend ordered the onion rings which were pretty much the best onion rings I've ever had. There wasn't too much breading and it wasn't totally drench in grease. The onions were still a little firm so you could actually bite into them without losing the whole onion. We will definitely be coming back to try more of their food. Happy hour has great deals on food and drinks and on a nice day the outside it a real treat!

Has a great view of downtown Portland...we had a great experience. Food was quality, the wine list was pretty good, and nice servers. Sit outside if you can...

Love the place. Where's the cabs?
My team and I visited for dinner. It was fabulous. We really enjoyed our server Kierre (spelling was weird) and the chef who took us on a magical tour on the rooftop garden (it really was magical). I had the scallops, but should have had the Sturgeon. It was freaking yummy. The only complaint me and one of my colleagues had was for a wine bar, there should be at least ONE bottle of Cabernet available by the glass. Is that too much to ask????
5/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food is always excellent with an amazing surroundings and picturesque views. I love going there and bring my friends and family to experience a wonderful meal out. Thank you!

Scenic wine lover paradise
Arrived 1 hour late but was seated without attitude. I left a message about it being our anniversary and they did wish us a happy anniversary. We had a Campari cocktail, a lemon burbon drink, and the meat plate. All were good. Service and view were even better!

We really appreciated the rooftop garden tour. The gentleman that took us up (can't remember his name), did a great job with the tour. What a special garden and the view from there is amazing.

I am so glad I made reservations through OpenTable. I arrived shortly before my reservation time to find the restaurant packed with lots of people waiting. Right away the hostess told me she had my table ready and led me to it. If I had not made reservations ahead of time it would have been a long wait for sure. I forgot to request the balcony in my reservation but was able to specify it when they called me to confirm the reservation. It was one of the first very hot days of the year, but the balcony has shade and a really nice breeze. The view of what I lovingly call "Middle East Portland" (right off Burnside, the N/S dividing line). Their tables are almost all of decent size, holding 6 (or 8 cozy). I'll definitely go back.

We requested to see the garden on the roof and were informed someone would take us up there. Did we want to go before dinner? Yes. The owner, garden designer, and chef, Leather, took us up for a personal tour. We must have been up there for 15-20 minutes until his wife came up and we had to go back down. They were both delightful and answered all of our questions.
The food was delicious and everything had a unique twist. We eagerly shared bites and didn't find a looser in the group. We would all go back again!

JULY 4TH FIND!
We vacationed in Portland. The restaurant is on the east side of the river on the fourth floor of an office type building. When we first arrived, we momentarily asked ourselves...Where are we? Just take the elevator ride and be pleasantly surprised. They even have a roof garden in which they grow many of their ingredients. The endive salad was a stand out. They may only be on the fourth floor, but we had a wonderful evening looking at the fireworks over the city. We were celebrating two birthdays and the hostess wanted to make sure we had a table that we liked (inside vs outside). Our waiter gave his opinions about items on the menu and, as a result, we enjoyed everything that we ordered. What a great find. What a great night!!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and view!
Brought some out of town friends here for dinner. The view is unbeatable and the staff was really friendly. We will absolutely be back.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great atmosphere... Great food!
Our dining experience was very nice except the hamburger that was ordered did not get cooked as ordered and had to be taken back. The next one did not return to the table until the rest of the party had finished eating. It also came back not cooked as ordered..
The special of the day was excellent.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was recommended by other Open Table users. The building is interesting, LEED certified. Loved the indoor/outdoor feel.
FYI, can be very warm outdoors. Sunset was beautiful. Found wines we had at the Willamette wineries. Food was fantastic.
Don't miss the grilled angel food cake with berries.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great overall package
Food is carefully prepared using fresh local and grown on premises produce however menu is somewhat limited and not particularly innovative (not necessarily a bad thing). Views are great. Wine selection is outstanding with choices of several themed wine flights (such as Oregon Pinot Noir or Italian wines) are available. Good spot for an after-work get away.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome all the way around!
We dined here on a lovely summer evening in Portland. The view is spectacular ! The food was absolutely delicious. Drinks are very pretty but also quality. Can't wait to return!

Perfect Birthday Dinner
We made a reservation for 6 people at 7pm. We waited a few minutes for the table but once we sat down we had an amazing time! Great food, service, views, atmosphere.
Definitely one of our favorite places in Portland!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Up on the Roof
Enjoyed a birthday celebration for my husband with a view of the city and delicious meal. Started with cheese plate and a glass of Limoncello Sparkler. I had a generous piece of herb-crusted rockfish on a bed of corn/tomato succotash. He had the happy hour panino and side salad, while we each enjoyed a glass of wine - Malbec for me and Rioja for him. Attentive service and not too loud. Definitely recommend and will come back for any kind of celebration or just a date night.

Nice View, Incredible Food
It was a little hot to be outside at the time we went but tolerable. The food, view, and drinks were incredible and I can't wait to go back. Love that they grow as much food as can on their rooftop garden. So fresh.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great restaurant, wonderful food!
We had an amazing meal here a few nights ago. The view is amazing, and the food unique and fresh. House wines here are high quality and well worth the $5.50. Overall, the pricing is a little higher than I would have expected for the types of food offered. That being said, the view and the overall atmosphere make it worth it.
Major fault: the are unable to split checks. With a large group, this made it difficult at the end and one person ended paying much more than they should have.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
view worth the visit
Fun for the view ! My food was overcooked but they redid it and comped me so the right thing to do . Millennial wait staff could be more attentive
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tasty food. One of the best burgers in town. Eminently sippable cocktails. And the view ain't bad.

True taste of Portland
Evokes the heart of Portland with good food; great view; relaxed atmosphere; friendly staff; accessible garden on roof; leed certified building; great overall dining experience.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I requested to sit outside on OpenTable and the restaurant made that happen., but when it started raining, we suddenly wanted to go inside. The restaurant then made that happen, too. We ordered a few plates to share and everything tasted great. I loved the local, fresh food, great dinner mood lighting and trendy vibe.

Food and views are top-notch!
Food and views are top-notch! The actual outdoor patio is small, but everywhere in the restaurant offers a grand view. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly, and although the main course took awhile, it was fresh and well worth the wait! It's a very impressive place, overall and I would highly recommend it.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great view and great food
food was excellent and an added wine flight made it even better. Great view over Portland and friendly and efficient service.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT for any occasion
While we only treck out to this wonderful location but once a year (our anniversary), it is a great dining location for any time/event. The view looking west toward Portland is sepctacular, the food amazing, and great service! Well worth it!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic evening with friends
New place for us. Took out of town friends as we heard the view of downtown Portland was one of the best-and it was!! Food was delicious. Everyone happy with the new experience!!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Elegant with energy!
Had a lovely experience here. Took my parents here to meet my boyfriend for the first time. Has a nice energy so we didn't feel isolated, but the ambiance was lively and classy so that we could hear and enjoy each other. Food was tasty, and while it's not my favorite meal in PDX, there was something on the menu for everyone. Interesting flavor combos and spins on classic which kept our interest. I'd recommend this place for all sorts of occasions. It's got a great feel and an even better view of the city!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a first date. Terrific
Great for a first date. Terrific view, simple menu easy to choose from when my girl asked me to order for her. Vegetarian friendly for her. The tuna was fantastic for me.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We go there about every 8 weeks or so as we have season tickets to plays near by! It is consistently delicious and delightful. The service is excellent and the food is something we can count on. The happy hour menu is wonderful, too! We will continue to enjoy this gem!

Double Date Night Done Right
Me and my boyfriend took another couple out for a night in Portland. I love that this place had a view of downtown from the SE side. It has something for everyone. The price is nice but no too expensive. Love this place!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
NOT SURE THEIR SECRET; MUST BE THE BEST INGREDIENTS, EVERY DISH FROM SCRATCH. THEY TURN A HAMBURGER INTO FINE DINING! Brownie with freshly made salt caramel and ice cream is EXCEPTIONAL. Waiters are perfectly in tune to diners' needs.

Great spot to view sunset over downtown and enjoy a nice dinner. Brownie with ice cream and caramel sauce was delicious.

Love The Decor, Food, and Location!
Took my out-of-town parents for dinner outside on a beautiful weekend. Menu was almost a little "daring" for them, but my dad LOVED the steak frites (as did I). My mom wasn't moved by the seafood pasta special, sadly. The decor is super chic, and of course, sitting outside with the sun setting behind the west hills is always nice.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
All around great experience
The food was amazing and the server knew every last detail about the menu. This restaurant also had the best views of the city that I've seen so far.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went here recently for my birthday and was pleased with most things. Great view, yummy drinks, unusual recipes and flavors. The only complaint I have is that the creme brulee was not hot.....or even warm! The flavor was superb, but I need my brulee to at least be warm to enjoy it, since I only order it on special occasions. The ambience was great with the sunset in the background and surrounding artistic lights and candles. I would definitely order the "PB&J" because it is NOT what you think...... :)
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
watch out for gluten
I have a gluten sensitivity & specifically asked what items contained gluten & our waitress replied, "everything is gluten free except for the obvious things. that do (pasta dishes etc.). we asked about the contents of the meat plate, waitress made NO indication that it contained gluten. She delivered a small plate of bread, the meat plate & our beverages. we pushed aside the bread & started with the meat plate. we started with the duck which was delicious. approximately 5 minutes after starting the meat plate someone else came to the table to inform us that the duck we consumed contained gluten! Ahhhh! So we crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. That dinner was followed by 24 hours of abdominal discomfort. very unhappy.

Food has gotten even better...
I hadn't been in over a year and I must say the food - especially the entrees have improved. They were good before - but now even better. The views are stunning from the east side of the river looking west. It is an adult restaurant - they take reservations, have a great bar, you can hear your partner and there is room to move around. I highly recommend it! Waiting area could be bigger….or have more seats.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Couldn't of picked a better spot! The decor and ambiance was spectacular. Would definitely recommend and go back!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect dinner for us. You must order the Mia Farrow. It's a fantastic cocktail to start your meal
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. I made sure to make reservations, to request that we had a table next to the windows (for the view), and informed them of the occasion. They were more than accommodating, providing a great table and at the end of the meal, remembered the occasion and brought our dessert out with a birthday candle! The food was good, not great, but I believe people go here for the wine list, the view, and the sustainable practices (rooftop garden!). Overall it was a great night.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful taste of Portland!
I was in town for business, and what a treat to find this restaurant. The food was delicious, ambience relaxing, and wine list excellent. Our server was quick with a smile, knowledgable, and was attentive to our needs, and gave us space to visit and enjoy our meals. We were served promptly, and never felt rushed. They have wine flights, so we were able to sample a number of local wines, and even enjoy a Sauterne at the end of the meal. They have a generous Happy Hour menu as well. The ambience is quiet, with real candles, and the space is on the 4th floor with lots of windows so we were treated to pretty city views. It was such a treat to escape from the hotel and enjoy a taste of true Portland.

We had an event to go to at the Rose Quarter and the waitress timed our meal so we made the event while still enjoying the great food.

Great Place for Happy Hour
Great venue with amazing views of downtown. We had been her several times for Happy Hour and
were very satisfied. Returned for dinner and found the Dinner Menu very unappealing! Mostly paninos
and very unusual entrees to choose from.
Service was great as was the atmosphere!

Late night dining in Portland
My wife and I dined here late one December evening. We had visited a few times before, but this was the first time at this time of night and year. We had a tremendous view of the Portland skyline from what is normally the patio in summer. Cocktails were lovely and we followed that with wine, salad, and a fish main, plus dessert. The service was very good and the food was all well prepared and nice on the palate. As a footnote, we were running a bit late for what was already a late reservation and they were quite accommodating for that (we did call ahead).
