Diner Reviews
  • "Great place to eat, wonderful ambience. Located in the Pearl District, it's truly accessible. Peking Duck was delicious & served mess-free. You gotta try it! Vegetables were cooked to perfection. A friend of mine have not tried baby bok-choy so that's what we ordered & she loved it."

  • "This is by far the best Chinese food in Portland. If you like overcooked and soggy veggies , deep fried, greasy ,heartburn in a box Chinese then this isn't for you.! Everything is fresh, amazing flavors and you will not need to take rolaid when done! Try the Buddha's Feast with a glass of White wine. (My favorite)"

  • "It's a terrific place for Happy Hour. Good little plates, both meat and vegetable. We have been many times as we have friends who live nearby."

  • "We enjoyed all of the food at Seres, but were blown away by the lack of servers/staff at the restaurant."

  • "appetizers, wontons and potstickers were tasty. Sweet and sour chicken was a bit crunchy but had a good flavor. The service was a bit slow, especially the time to get our bill. No fortune cookies at end of the meal - is that out of style now? Good but not great meal. Won't rule it out for another try, but not high on list to return."

  • "We are new to Oregon and decided to give this a try in spite of some bad reviews on yelp. Let me keep it short just give it a try because it is a great place. Beware the dishes the serve are big."

  • "We sat in a private booth and looked out at the vibrant street scene on NW Lovejoy. Our server was knowledgeable and made some very choice recommendations for a new dish for us to try along with the right bottle of wine that went extremely well with our entire dinner. I would definitely recommend Seres to anyone looking for a great dinner (bonus that it's the most delicious Chinese food I have ever eaten) with a great atmosphere!"

  • "Service was excellent as always. We love their food, but we were kind of disappointed to find out that they didn't have happy hour menu (small plates) due to holiday season (New Year's Eve). We like to order many different dishes. All the items we ordered were pretty good. Our favorites that night were hot & sour soup and scallion pancake. We didn't care for chicken with young ginger, both taste and texture were a bit strange for us (It was the first time we ordered). We also ordered sauteed eggplant with garlic, dry green bean, scallop with black bean sauce and Seres fried rice (which had shrimp, pork and chicken). There were three of us. I guess we ordered too much. Somewhat the taste was a bit off (either salty or bland) that night."

  • "This may be an outlier experience as we went on Christmas Eve. We were seated 45 minutes late for our reservation. Food was good but Seres was overtaxed by the numbers of people they were trying to serve. Next year: Hire some extra staff on special days."

  • "i loved the idea of going to a chinese restaurant for christmas dinner. i wanted to have as unchristmas a holiday as possible. SERES was in the pearl and offered a menu with organic means and fresh ingedients. it sounded perfect. unfortunately not quite so perfect when we arrived. we were only two and seating for two-tops is limited. we finally setlled on a table close to the front and were constantly chilled by cold air coming in from the large front door. i had to eat with my coat on. the food was a notch up and my chicken and broccoli felt fresh and perfecctly done. lots of brocooli (cooked to perfection) and declicious chicken also excellent duck salad rools. i'd give it an A- for food and a D for ambience."

  • "Got a $25 dollar gift certificate on Christmas Day! We were the last couple (as always) and were with our three-year-old daughter, who was enjoying wearing her sparkly dress and doing spins in their foyer, at about 10 o'clock in the evening. When I asked why, the hostess said because of her and pointed to my daughter and smiled. Up until that point I had not been very satisfied with the customer service, but that instantly made up for it. We had The pressed duck, the sea scallops, and also noodles with chicken beef and pork. The cocktails were very finely crafted, my husband's date bourbon was delicious but strong."

  • "I had dinner there two nights ago and think it is the best Chinese food I have had in some time. The starters were average but the main dinners were very good. The service was attentive and overall a good experience. We will go back."
