We had 4 dishes including the clay pot chicken that was the special. My favorite dish ended up being the tempura green beans. They were delicious! However, I felt that everything else sort of missed the mark. For a $100 dinner for 2, I definitely left with a feeling of regret. Probably won't be back any time soon.

I don't usually bother to write a review, but I want to do so for Aviary. What a great restaurant. Unusually foods, great tastes, exceptional presentation. Terrific server. And all at a very reasonable price as well. Doesn't get better than this!

Best food I've eaten in Portland! We went for New Year's Eve and it was also our anniversary, and it was perfect! Loved the options on the special New Year's menu.

Two hours into the meal, we were only just beginning our second course. The restaurant staff (everyone with the exception of our actual waiter) were very apologetic with regards to the delay of the first three courses, explaining they were having some kitchen difficulties, and in the process creating a rather slow pattern of service. A paced meal was manageable , but our waiter, while initially rather lovely, developed ample attitude throughout the long evening from sources unbeknownst to us. She brought out dessert with little explanation of its contents nor its wine pairing (a service that was scarce to begin with, and continued to dwindle throughout the evening) and a few short moments later hastily dropped the bill at the center of our table with no acknowledgement of our progress in the meal. She then proceeded to linger in such a way that it was clear we were being rushed to leave.

While the food was fabulous, and the quiet setting facilitated easy and intimate communication amongst diners, the service failed to reflect the care clearly taken in all other aspects of the dining experience. With some more professional and polished staff, the perceived value and overall experience would have increased exponentially.

The food was very good as usual. I love their eggplant and their green beans. We requested a quiet corner and got it. The waiter was helpful, informative, and friendly but not to the point of annoying. Very pleasant experience.

This was one of the most delicious dinners I have ever had! We went for an early dinner during the week and ordered both a bunch of appetizers and two of us had dinners. The tempura green beans were spectacular! Every dish had its own distinctive flavors and sauce. Other excellent dishes were the carrots and lentils, the artichokes, the steak and the scallops. The combination of Asian and French really works here. I highly recommend this restUrNt for its interesting and delicious dishes.
