Awesome timeWe celebrated our anniversary here, and was an awesome experience. The staff made us feel like they truly cared, and helped us to enjoy a great meal & wine. We will definately go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSweltering Dining RoomFood and service were great. It was warm outside, and all the sidewalk tables were occupied. We were seated in the main dining area, and it was hot. The ceiling air conditioner was unplugged and the waiter said it hasn't worked "in a while". There were no fans and no breeze through the doorways. The wait staff were visibly sweating (as in they had sweat running down their faces) and it was only 5:30 PM. Not cool watching sweat drip from servers head onto a plate at the table across from us. After seeing that we kept a close watch on our waiter and food as it was delivered to us. Please get the AC unit fixed in the main dining area before summer gets here.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood stupendous. Service excellent.Food stupendous. Service excellent. A great special occasion spot.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, fantastic cheeseGreat food, fantastic cheese selection and desert might have been the best part.
The waiter was good without being pretentious and knew the wine list well. Lots of good wine options. Not your typical bland Portland wine list filled with Willamette Valley Pinots (which can be fantastic but variety is nice to see).4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful eveningAnother wonderful evening at St. Jack. The service and the food was outstanding. Portland has so many great restaurants, we tend to not repeat visits. But, St. Jack was so good last time and this time, we will definitely be back again and soon.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the restaurantWe enjoyed the restaurant not only for the wonderful and interesting food selection, but also being able to have conversations with ease. Service was attentive, but not too fussy.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been neighborhoodWe have been neighborhood fans of St. Jack since it opened. We're regulars although this was the first time we actually sat at a table. We usually sit at the bar. The goat cheese, butter lettuce, rillette are stand-out appetizers. I had the Tomato soup en croute - new on the menu - excellent. The whole table had the entree special giant portioned pork schnitzel. After appetizers impossible to finish. Not as thinly flat as a veal schnitzel in Vienna (we were there in October) but definitely a worthy contender. The new items on the menu are great to see. The service is excellent, attentive, friendly. This place doesn't need more excellent reviews. I should pan it so I can continue to get in.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my favoriteThis is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland, which is saying a lot! I love the food, the atmosphere and design of the space, and the people who work here. I always have an incredible time with friends who are usually new to the place. This last Saturday was no exception.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMStay away its all mine!Dinner 5:30pm. Charming waitress. Pork rinds Mrs. wanted...Crazy good didn't understand how I liked them. Asparagus salad: awesome (Had asparagus salad 3 hours prior at Evoe outstanding) ordering a lettuce salad here if the warm asparagus is available would be a FAIL. Veal in cognac/creme sauce Redonkoulous! If someone had to eat me I would want to be served in this sauce. Dessert: Mrs. wins beignets with side of chocolate creme brulee trumps rhubarb (not tart) parfait...I was told by our attentive waitress in advanced that I was being temped by a false rhubarb god (very much a lesser god) and that all zest the dish created was visual and the magic ended at the lips. Noise was much better in the back than the front. Mostly French wine list.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMdelightful dining experienceMy husband and I, with another couple, thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner at St Jack. As usual, the food was delicious and nicely presented. Peter and I had the breast of veal stew and agreed we had made a great choice. Our friends were equally pleased with their entrees. The excellent service enhanced a delightful dining experience.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss it!I absolutely love St Jack and would recommend it to everyone! Great service, great food and I completely love the casual relaxed ambiance.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't wait...We've been meaning to visit St Jack for some time and now wonder why we waited so long! The food and service were both excellent and the setting had a wonderful neighborhood charm and ease. We also had a devoted foodie friend with us for the dinner date, who makes it his mission to dine at highly regarded restaurants around the world, and he too was quite impressed. We're invited two other friends and going back this weekend! Yum!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRan out of the lamb shankRan out of the lamb shank which was the thing we all wanted most!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food. reminds meVery good food. reminds me of a small village rustic French bistro.

It was really a great experience.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceGreat service with the attention to detail in reguards to the total experience. Waiter (Sean) knows his stuff and the wine to pair. I can't wait to go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is qute smallThe restaurant is qute small therefore not too noisy. The food was outstanding and we were very impressed that the trout which 2 of us ate, did not contain a single bone. The menu is small but quite adventurous, not for timid diners or those with too mny food restrictions. All round an extremely enjoyable experience. It was a birthday and they served dessert on a .lovely plate with happy Birthday written on in chocolate. They did not sing so my friend was not embarrassed.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
