  • "Have been to Serratos numerous times and have NEVER been disappointed. One of our favorite restaurants in PDX for that reason. Staff is very friendly and definitely there to make sure you have a great dining experience. Went there this time for the March Dining Experience and the menu choice Chef made was excellent! Beef cheeks just melted with the fork. The Creme Brulee is the one of the best we've had anywhere. Definitely would recommend- you will not be disappointed."

  • "We absolutely LOVED Serratto. The meal was fantastic. Every dish was perfectly prepared and excellent quality. Wait staff was attentive and great for suggestions etc. Definitely moved to the top of our dining list."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Fennel salad was very good, however having another option for those who don't enjoy fennel would be nice. Entrees were prepared well and very flavorful. Our main complaint was the service. Our server never smiled or seemed to care about our table. She appeared to not enjoy interacting with the public ( at least not with those over 50). We were never asked by her if everything was fine or if we needed anything. Our entrees arrived and we had no utensils since they were removed on our salad plates. A male server was very friendly and he was attentive whe bringing our food. We left with the impression that we were not a valued customer."

    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We've eaten at all the more famous great places in Portland, and we find this surprisingly good and the equal to those better known places. Everything we've had there the 3 times we've been there has been excellent and beautifully presented. The tables are spaced sufficiently apart to limit the noise so you can really talk and not be distracted by other tables. The wine list is decent and reasonably priced, and the cocktail menu is especially good. The waitstaff has always been attentive and non- obtrusive. In spite of the excellence of the food, it is very unpretentious and down to earth. One of our favorite places for an excellent, romantic meal at less- than exorbitant prices."

  • "Had been here before only at Happy Hour. Finally decided to try the dining room with a couple of friends. We were glad we did. All meals were really good and consistent quality throughout."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "At first the service was excellent but as the restaurant got busier our service became very slow and quite frankly unacceptable. The hamburger was top notch! However the risotto was way too salty as was the papperdelle. I felt for the price this dinner was not worth it. I've eaten here 5 or 6 times in the past and enjoyed it…just not this time and I'm not sure I would come back"

  • "The service and food was excellent. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and our server was so attentive, and great with making wine a dinner recommendations. We started with the calamari for an appetizer, and my husband had the beef cheek for dinner and I had the lamb. It was beyond excellent! We would definitely come back again and again!"

  • "Went to Serratto for Sunday dinner before a show. I had the 3-course $29 dinner (March is "dining out" month in Portland), my wife ordered a la carte. Each course was nicely presented and very tasty. Excellent service. Very nice space. Will definitely go again."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Hadn't been here in years as I had moved away, so I was worried that it wouldn't be as good as I had remembered. I was happy to find it just as delicious as ever. Looking forward to our next visit!"

  • "My friend and I celebrate our birthdays every year with lunch at Serratto. We order the same drinks, salad, and main course. Always delicious and never disappointed. Service is good, no pressure to get us in and out. We have made it our tradition and would never think of going elsewhere."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Terrible service. My wife and I had been twice before and had good experiences but the other night was awful. Our waitress was completely unattentive and rude. She did not bring us any bread; we finally had to ask a server from another section, my wife wanted to order a glass of wine but she never came back to the table after taking our dinner order, and finally at the end of dinner we asked to see a dessert menu but was ignored and she just dropped the check on the table without saying "Thank you" or any acknowledgement. We waited a minute to see if maybe she didn't hear us but decided to skip dessert and leave. Overall, the food is good and our prior two experiences had been better but just be aware."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We come to Portland about once a year and had been to Serratto a couple of times previous for both lunch and dinner, which were wonderful, so we were looking forward to a return visit. Let me say the space and ambiance of this restaurant is just wonderful. It is clearly a neighborhood favorite. We were seated immediately but things went pretty much downhill from there. Our waiter was all over the map, service wise. He seemed to not know what he was doing. The food was really rather disappointing. I had a pizza which was not very crispy and three other folks had various pastas, two being pappardelle. All three were undercooked. We were not about to let the waiter know as that might have resulted in not a good outcome. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "I forgot how incredible the scallops are at Seratto's Always perfectly done and they vary the combinations and presentation so its a new experience each time. The best service. My favorite place of all time."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We sort of stumbled into the restaurant that was located a few blocks from our hotel. We were treated to a delightful evening with excellent, knowledgeable service and fantastic food. Their homemade pasta was perfectly prepared and seasoned, and the salads were crisp and perfectly done. Dinner was exquisite. I had the duck, which was delicious. Our server helped us select a perfect win for the dinner. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Varied menu, many sections to the restaurant so the diner can choose his or her own ambiance. I wish the menu had noted that the pappardelle was whole wheat! Not the same as 'regular,' although it was tasty. As a leftover though, it was inedible. Not a huge problem, but I did tell the server. A great find in the NW of Portland."

  • "It's a spot you can count on! Never disappoints. Always great service, always a nice menu!"

  • "Four of us went to Serratto for Valentine's dinner and couldn't have been more pleased. The food and service were excellent. Favorites were the peppers stuffed with quinoa, the kale salad and the risotto. To die for."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food and the place were great. Thursday (just before Valentines Day), my wife's birthday. Food was quite good. Combinations are unusual - scallops with butternut squash? The squash turned us away - interesting but not engaging. However what we had was quite good. The wild boar was fantastic. Duck confit was excellent. However, the duck with lentils, kale and parsnips was a bit flat - could use something like an apple to brighten it. Great drinks and wines. Waitress was engaging, helpful, service oriented. The attendee (water, busing) was on top of it all the time - super attentive. A superb support for the wait staff. - Great value for a memorable special event"

  • "This is the third time I've been to Serratto's and I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, served in a beautiful and appetizing manner and always to order. Due to specific dietary restrictions that I have, I always need modifications to my order. This has been happily accommodated and they have even gone above and beyond. And I have to say that our server, Catherine, was especially delightful. She was warm, friendly and accommodating. Also, I left my purse on the chair when I left the restaurant and, just as I realized it, about half way down the block, a waiter can down the block with my purse to catch me. That was much appreciated on a very cold night!!"

  • "We enjoyed our monthly date night at Serratto. Lovely upscale romantic wine bar atmosphere with fine dining and diverse wine selection. Parking a bit hard to come by on weekends, but we will definitely return. Bouillabaisse and Creme Brûlée were excellent."

  • "This was our second time dining at this restaurant. Our meal started well with a delicious appetizer and soup/salad. We waited a very long time for our entrees. During this wait the dining room filled with smoke. We were sure our food had been burned hence the wait. Our food arrived and the smoke finally cleared so we stayed for coffee and dessert. We asked our server about the smoke and she said it was poor ventilation. Our clothes and coats reek of this smoke and we will probably not return."

  • "Invited friends to dinner and brought them to Serrato. We had reservations on Saturday evening so we were seated right away at a nice window table. We had the most wonderful service and the food was top notch. I would highly recommend Serrato. Our server was a young dark haired woman with olive skin coloring I can't remember her name but want to let you know she ROCKS!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Fantastic food, service was great- we were super slow at finishing our meal and they kept checking on us- which was actually very nice and not intrusive or pushy. I would definitely like to go with my partner for a romantic dinner in the future. Thank you Serratto!"
