Autentica Mexican Cuisine is a family owned and operated restaurant in the heart of the NE Portland Concordia neighborhood. For almost one decade, Autentica has specialized in traditional Mexican cuisine. Inspired by Chef Oswaldo Bibiano's southern hometown of Acapulco Mexico. Here you will find classic dishes like pollo en mole (half chicken simmered in a house made mole sauce), posole( a traditional pork and hominy stew) camarones al mojo de ajo (fried garlic prawns). Since it is located in the Pacific Northwest, Autentica works with the freshest locally grown ingredients. Autentica' s brunch served every Sunday, draws inspiration from Mexican street food such as sopes (corn masa cakes topped with chicken and spicy chorizo sausage), huevos rancheros, and corn masa and black bean quesadillas. Our collection of over fifty tequilas and mezcals are a great pairing with the vibrant food. Come in and give us a try!

                                                    They should not be closing. Sad for Portland to lose this gem after 14 years.

                                                    It is so sad to see Autentica close. Great food, great service, great cocktails. Unusual and inspired Mexican cuisine, especially seafood dishes. And those black bean tortillas were wonderful. I am hoping that after a rest, they will try again with a full service restaurant. Uno Mas is still open and the west side one by the Timbers stadium, but not the same menu. Wonderful hard working owners.

Their food was terrific and consistent, always - but their grilled octopus was the very BEST in Portland!! the service was always friendly, gracious and let you spend your time enjoying your meal. A truly delightful experience every single time! Best of luck to everyone involved. We will miss you!

                                                    The place was great. Everyone was very happy with their choices. I always look for someplace special for my Birthday and Authentica did not let me down. Two signature dishes that a Mexican Resturaunt must perfect are their relleno and their mole - both of these were great; the relleno was among the best I’ve had and the mole was excellent. I recommend Authentica to any and all.

                                                    Our party was seated 25 minutes after our reservation time which was lame. The food was great, the service could have been much better. Being that I only visit Portland a few times a year, I don't think I'd risk a repeat experience

                                                    Autentica is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Portland. The flavors are incredible, the presentation is gorgeous, and the environment is really great. We sat on the patio, which was nice. We had the pastor tacos which are always fantastic, queso fundido with chorizo which is my highest recommendation, the platillo, and the carne asada. Highly recommend all!

                                                    I always have a good experience and great food here. Back patio is a nice place to be and gets shaded by about 7pm during the summer. The house made tortillas with their signature sauces are a must and the octopus dish is one of my favorites.

                                                    A delicious array of flavor. I liked the rellenos, homemade tortillas, potato salad, and tres leche ice cream best. Mole was also very good and I don't really care for mole. We were not disappointed and will return.

                                                    The food was outstanding. Possibly the best mole sauce I've ever had. The service was great. The staff was helpful with the menu; attentive, but did not hover. The outdoor patio was an excellent environment.

                                                    Nice dinner, but Hostess was rude from the moment we walked in. This continued throughout our visit, when bringing drinks and clearing plates. A spoiler, for the pleasant atmosphere.

                                                    Loved the brunch options. The patio was quieter than the dining room and a beautiful way to enjoy a sunny morning.

                                                    I arrived about 15 mins early on 5/4 for dinner reservations I made the day before. The hostess who I checked in with was surly, rude and not at all welcoming. Our waitress was professional and tried very hard to make the best of a bad situation (namely that our entrees, particularly mine, took forever to come out.) The waitress kept coming by to apologize for the slow pace of our entrees arriving, and came by three times to tell us the food was coming (probably a full 50 mins after our appetizers, which felt very off rhythm). Finally one entree made it out 15 mins before the other one! A few of the menu items, including the appetizer and my friend's tacos were very good. The margaritas were not up to par w the better food items and were a bit overpriced ($12 for a basic, weaker pour, house margarita).

                                                    Chips were greasy, service was very slow despite not being busy, pork taco was not edible - the meat was not braised - it was like chunks of rubber. Salsa was great. Took an hour to make our dinner even though the restaurant was not busy and we were there for an early evening dinner before a show - 5:30 pm and it took an hour - 5 visible staff in the kitchen, presumably occupied with prep stuff for the later evening rush. Took 20 minutes to take a drink order. Plenary of fabulous restaurants in the area - so never again.

                                                    The food was overpriced for the portions, and was not what we anticipated. The location is great, the setup was nice. Their version of Carne Asada was unlike any I have seen before, my order was different that what I had requested. It just was very overpriced for what it was.

                                                    Excellent food with good portions. The chilaquiles were tasty with the option to add chorizo or huevos.
