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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
