The food was good and the service was great! Very welcoming and accommodating when we requested a different table to better suit a disabled friend. I’d go back.
Loved this restaurant! Such a cute restaurant in a quaint SE Portland neighborhood. Great service, food and ambience! Will be back for sure.
We were there for March Portland dining month. The 3 courses were delicious and well paired. it was nice to have several choices, too.
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.
We loved it and will be definitely coming back!
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.
The food was an okay quality but nothing special and overpriced. Enjoyed the ambiance. I would not go out of my way to visit again.
Always tasty food and good service by nice people
Bar Avignon has some of the best service people in the city. I always feel welcome. The food is consistently good with the mussels being my favorite. I recommend this restaurant to all of my friends.
I had high expectations and it was just okay for the price.
The ambiance and service was fantastic. However, all the food from the Portland Dining month menu wan't mindblowing. The soup and ragout were great but everything else, especially the dessert was just ok.
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.
What a delight. Super friendly, attentive service. Delicious, great presentation
Awesome! Great food and service. Good location too.
One of our top 3 favorite places to eat on Portland. We’ve been eating there for years and never had a bad meal or bad service. Food is really delicious and thoughtfully prepared. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Love this place.
Fantastic service from every staff member. The atmosphere was lovely and comfortable. Great cocktails. Neighborhood feel with elevated food.
Always outstanding. This is our go-to special place.
Amazing dinner. Everything was top notch. Thank you!
Five of us went on a Sunday night the food was good the service was outstanding and the noise level was Surprisingly low.
Always such a perfect dining experience! The space is smaller, but a gem if you want to spend the evening savoring your meal without being rushed. We have never had to wait for service here either.
As someone who does not dine out often because I myself work in the restaurant industry, and therefore has a pretty high standard when I do decide to spend money eating out, I am so glad we went to Bar Avignon this evening. We were running late because of traffic and they held our table no problem, and then we’re warmly made at home by every member of the staff throughout the rest of our meal. Our server Bre was attentive and knowledgeable and dealt with my (admittedly high maintenance) grandparents and their ceaseless questions with the utmost grace and humor. Oyster and a charcuterie and the best borscht I have had in recent memory. The pork tenderloin was perfectly prepared with the slightly sweet couscous and golden raisin and carrot accompaniment. My gluten intolerant grandmother even got to end the night with flourless chocolate and tangerine cake. Thank you all for a lovely experience, will definitely be back!
I've been coming to Bar Avignon for ten years. It's one of my go-to's for out-of-town guests for it's intimate atmosphere, top drawer menu and wine list, and pitch-perfect wait staff. A treasure.
Best service I’ve had in Portland! Excellent happy hour
We had a party of 6 and they seated us in a semi private space in the back of the restaurant. It was perfect. We were there over Valentines weekend and the menu was delicious. Our server was helpful and attentive but not over the top.
We hadn't been to Bar Avignon for quiet while but it was as quiet and the staff were as friendly as we remembered. Our server, Bri, was very knowledgeable about the wine and beer selection and reminded us that we still had time to order from the happy hour menu. The happy hour choices were excellent, especially the oysters that were small and tasty. We selected the Hanger Steak special for our entree and it was delicious. Quite a good selction of wines, beer and liquors.
We tell all of our Portland friends about the wonderful dining experiences we have enjoyed at Bar Avignon. Every time we go there we try something new and are just amazed at how good it is. The staff there makes us and our guests feel like we are part of their family and actually glad to see us (as opposed to their Uncle _______ who always drinks too much and is politically incorrect).
Because we enjoy Bar Avignon so much it seems we are usually amongst the first to arrive the last to leave; nevertheless they are still very nice to us. This has become our go to restaurant for a great quiet and relaxed dining experience.
Mussels were delicious, as was the truffled risotto & cod. Service was superb.
Great! No snoootyness. Mussels were good as was the bread. Drinks and service excellent.
Good food; comfortable; did not rush us
We always enjoy Bar Avignon. This was a quiet Monday evening and it was lovely. Our waitress was very familiar with the wines and recommended the perfect one for what we wanted. The Caesar salad with house made duck prosciutto was especially wonderful, we sat at the counter and watched these wonderful people preparing food and drinks, including removing their own home made butter from molds. This is a fine place to dine, always.
Very good bistro style food, served with flair. Food is simple and well-prepared, and service was good.
A great happy hour menu, as well.
Sister-in-law from Eugene had an early morning flight out of PDX and we planned to grab a bite. She’s very particular and Bar Avignon successfully pleased her. Staff and food were phenomenal!
Went to Bar Avignon to catch up with my sister and drink some good wine. It was the perfect spot. Wonderful service, excellent wine list, delicious food. Will be back soon to dish with her again.
Bar Avignon is one of our long time favorites!
Great food, attentive professional service, good wine list with an emphasis on France, but also Oregon, west coast, and Italian representation.
If you haven't been, definitely go!
Food quality has really taken a drop
Excellent service and food
This is the second time at this restaurant and we will not be back with so many other good places to choose from in the Portland area. My husband and friend ordered the scallop and octopus and sent it back after trying to cut the octopus with a steak knife and still had trouble. The caesar salad was bland and the coq au vin was OK with little flavor. the best thing was the dessert.
Really enjoyed the vibes of this place and the service was amazing! Very romantic with the dim lighting and lit music. Also the food was delicious! Love the cheese and warm olives! And dinner was a delight. Highly recommend this spot for some good wine and good eating :)
This was our 3rd visit to Bar Avignon and once again we were not disappointed. The food and service are alway spot on.
One of our favorite spots. Great atmosphere, great service, and great food. Just an all around great place.
