This is the transformed Il
This is the transformed Il Piatto - same owners, same location. Some of the old favorites are still on the menu, and there are some wonderful new additions. Rather than having a strictly Italian focus, it now includes German and Swiss dishes as well. All are delicious (we tried 5 things!), and the service was gracious. I will definitely go back. I hope others realize that this is not just a new restaurant, but rather a new version of an long-standing success.

The Slide Inn has an eclectic
The Slide Inn has an eclectic atmosphere with delectable, to die for, cuisine. The variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes are great for those that are gluten intolerant (Only place we have seen to offer gluten free tempura). However, don’t let the variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes discourage you; there are abundant options for meat lovers. My wife, son, and I all got different appetizers and entrées and everything was delicious. Not on the menu, but they also had a gluten free chocolate torte that would satisfy any die hard chocolate fan. The one down side is there was only one waitress at the time and service was a bit slow, but we didn’t feel neglected. Please, do yourself a favor and Slide Inn for a scrumptious dining experience.

We very much enjoyed the pork
We very much enjoyed the pork Wienerschnitzel dinner. It is actually hard to find that dish nicely done in Portland. The ambience and food are highly reminiscent of a comfortable tavern meal in Germany. We look forward to returning.

The service was very slow
The service was very slow and the waitress forgetful. It took a full 20 minutes for anyone to come over and ask if I wanted a drink while I waited for the rest of my party. After drink were ordered the waitress forgot to bring my friends beer then remembered about 20 minutes later and also forgot my coffee that I had ordered with my dessert. There was also a very large party (10+) who made a lot of noise as the night wore on and the space was very unforgiving of that. The food was good and they have a lot of vegan/vegetarian and gluten-free options if you have a party that includes people with those diets.

Portland's Euro food
Twelve of us had a lovely dinner at Slide Inn. although a little difficult to reach when not a local and without a car, it was worth the effort! the menu is quite eclectic, ranging from sturdy German fare to Italian pastas to vegan offerings. Everyone truly enjoyed the freshness and unique spin on their salads, the entrees garnered "ahs and oohs", and the desserts were quite fine. Were we to live in Portland, we would no doubt make this a regular stop. this is not a restaurant where you have a rushed meal: plan to stay a while and enjoy all they have to offer. The noise level was moderate but it was all coming from us!!

All Night Happy Hour
We went to Slide Inn on a Tuesday evening and discovered it was Happy Hour all night. Instead of ordering regular dinners we sampled lots of small plates and were very pleased with everything except the pickles. Would recommend you try this.

Delicious food & charming decor
I brought my family here for a brunch. We have a mix of vegans, vegetarians & carnivores in the group. Everyone had plenty of options to choose from on the menu. I love the homemade syrups, they have lavender, hibiscus & ginger to choose from. Water is served in glass goblets & you get cloth napkins. It's an elegant vibe without the pretentiousness & high price. The decor has a refined retro look. To me it feels like you're walking into a fine European lodge in the 70's. The service was also great. Our server was very friendly & attentive. We passed by The Screen Door restaurant on our way, the line was out the door, it was loud & jam-packed inside. Too bad people didn't know this hidden gem was right around the corner.

The only problems we had were because they were short-handed and had a larger turn-out than expected. Otherwise, very nice woman waited on us, and the food was out of sight! Excellent! I've never had such good Eggs Benedict. My partner was a little disappointed by the goat cheese, chanterelle mushrooms, omelette. The other two of us were very happy with their food. None of us were particularly happy about the chlorine-tap water.
