Pro's: Good Food, friendly service, bar atmosphere
Con's: Prices, We had a group of five and the food was $201 before tip and wine. For those prices the service and seating ( very sparse - what you would expect at neigborhood casual place - benches, chairs) and pace of the service was not up to what it needs to be.

We absolutely love dining at Bar Avignon. The ingredients are farmed locally and prepared by chefs who love what they are doing. The wait staff is professional while at the same time being warm and welcoming. They have a great wine list and a full bar staffed by very talented mixologists. Dining at Bar Avignon is like dining at a dear friend’s home without the need to hang around to help with the dishes.

I've been to Bar Avignon 12 times since August of 2014 when I moved to Portland. I have been a big fan but over the past year the quality of food and wine has greatly declined. This was honestly one of my worst meals I've ever had in Portland. The flank steak was so way over cooked, no flavor and completely dried out. The potatoes were totally undercooked and hard. I should've sent it back but I tried to make the best of it and eat very little. Server / Manager / Bar Tender seemed uninterested in engaging to inquire how we liked it or ever asked us. Even the wine list was super limited with stamps all over it of sold out. Until I see any news of a head chef / management change here I would highly caution against a visit here.

I love Bar Avignon. The service is really the secret to the place. I have had a number of different servers and each one has been excellent. The food is consistently wonderful and the wine list, though short, is first rate. The desserts are always very good. The dessert wine list is a little short on cognac and very long on Amaro, but the list offers many unusual and interesting choices, which the great staff helps you explore.

We had a wonderful meal, and a great evening.

Portland Dining Month and returning from a trip combined for a great reason to try this restaurant, which we’ve wanted to do for a long time. So glad we got a reservation! A small space but manages to be cozy and not uncomfortable. Terrific food served by a fun, friendly staff.

We tried the 3-course special for March Dining Month. Within our group of 4, we were able to taste the soup and salad for first course, chicken and pork for main, and panna cotta and chocolate cake to end the meal. The house special wine for happy hour was a great value. Service was attentive. We will definitely come back.

My husband and I went here with our parents for PDX Dining Month and had a lovely time! Beautiful decor and excellent service, and the oysters are great. The only let down was the falafel dish- it was incredibly dry, even knowing that falafel is usually such. A bland dish overall. The rest of the table ordered the pork cheek and that was phenomenal! The panna cotta had too much gelatin, but those are the only complaints! Otherwise this is a great establishment and definitely worth the investment.

Definitely a cozy place, great for a date or a small group of friends. The overall ambiance is quiet for the space, warm and calming colors provide an intimate setting. The food was very good, well prepared and presented. My wife and myself agreed that we'd return when in the neighborhood.

We love this restaurant. We first found several years back when the Portland dining month was started. We went there last night and once again is was really good. My husband had the skirt steak and said it was the best he’s ever had! It’s Portland dining month. Try it.

I love this corner place. It is a welcoming, comfortable and pleasing restaurant. The staff is wonderful and friendly. The drinks above standard. The soup is always on point. I was only slightly disappointed in the panna cotta. The huckleberries on top saved it. My friend however loved every crumb of her Chocolate Cake with Orange Chantilly.

We were seated in the back, which provided some privacy. Sure there were boxes but it’s easily forgotten. Food was great - especially their steak and the service was smooth.

Went for Dining Month. Loved the ambiance and the intimacy. Struck up conversations with couples on both sides of our table about what dishes they likes and what to order. Settled on the potato leek soup, the pork cheek ragout and the chocolate cake. They did not disappoint. The food was AMAZING! We were talking about it all weekend. Wish we had gone back there Saturday night instead of the other restaurant we went to. That one was a disappointment. We will definitely go back to Bar Avignon next time we are in Portland.
