All good except musselsThe Pupu platter was great recommendation by the waitperson. Brussel sprouts were even exciting!
Mussels tasted sludgy and the sausage in the mix was too barnyardy.
We'll go back. The cocktails were fun, and worth experimenting with.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Great Food!We had a great time. The service was outstanding and the food was really good! This place has great energy and the atmosphere is fantastic!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYUM!We had the BEST time! Our waiter Jesse was great, attentive without being obnoxious. The food was SO good! The smoked oysters, the brussels sprouts, the cauliflower... YUMEEE!! There was an issue with many of the dishes being chipped and a couple of glasses with cracks though. THAT was scary. One of them actually had a big chip out of the rim. I found this out because my lip got caught on it! Usually that would lead to a very negative review. (Hello management, can you say lawsuit? Clean up your glass & dishware doll!) But Jesse took such good care of us & the food was SO good that I forgave them instantly. And watched for blood in my stool the next morning. (Coast was clear.) We're going back in a couple of weeks. Hope to see safe glasses!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM:)Amazing service, super hip and chic, delicious food and fantastic happy hour. Enough said.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful room, yummy foodBeautiful room, yummy food and our waiter (Rylin?) was very engaging and warm. We used a coupon and he was most gracious - some are not when they know you have a 'deal'. The cocktail list is amazing and well priced. We will highly recommend to others coming from Seattle to beautiful Portland!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the salmon and the vibeVery happy with our experience at Saucebox. I've been going there ever since they opened for their famous Javanese Salmon and am never disappointed. I also love their room off the bar since it's quieter and very elegant yet hip. I was surprised at 6:30 on a Wednesday that they were pretty packed so make reservations.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
