Bar Avignon Ratings and Reviews
The Soup and the stringazzi were fantastic. So were our cocktails, and the service was super.
However, the rest of what we ate (prawns, mixed salad, potatoes, marcona almonds, etc) were uninspired , poorly prepared (over cooked almonds, gamey prawns, flavorless salad) and underwhelming.
We’ll be back but only to enjoy a drink at the bar. The ambiance (music playlists, low lighting, friendly servers) was great. But the food was unfortunate and the entire experience was overpriced for its value.
Even though Bar Avignon is a neighborhood gem, it should be a destination restaurant with its great food, good value, and warm hospitality. Often overlooked in the crush of SE Division restaurant choices, this place feels like it has been there forever and plans to stick around. I sure hope it does.
My three girlfriends and I each had a different entrée and we each relished what we ate wishing at the end that we had spoons to lap up the juices left on our plates. One friend who had the bison short rib pappardelle said the following morning that this could have easily been the finest meal she had ever had. I had the duck and found it sublime, so juicy and succulent. It was refreshing that the four of us could sit across from each other and not have to yell like you do at so many restaurants these days. I was visiting from Seattle and wish we had a Bar Avignon!
First time here but not the last. Small and intimate, we sat by the window and enjoyed oysters and a cheese platter to start, so good. Timing was perfect from course to course and the wait staff was right on point. Make reservations a must and don’t be in a hurry.
This is still my “go to” neighborhood spot. Night in, night out , BA delivers.
Under the radar but this is still possibly the best restaurant on SE Division and it is definitely worth a trip to visit. I love it more that it is a 20 minute walk from my home.
Great seasonal menu, terrific cocktails, and perfectly attentive service. This is how pros operate.
Bar Avignon is an intimate place, with low key ambiance. Very nice. Great food, and drinks and wine menu. Mussels were excellent but could do without the cream in the broth. Too rich.
Excellent service, and the noise level was very conducive to conversation, unlike other places on Division that are impossible to carry on a conversation in
Phenomenal food - The mussels are subtle and amazing and just melt in your mouth. The chicken liver mousse is heavenly and smooth with no aftertaste -and is served with yummy bread, unlike another local highly-touted establishment that serves it with saltines... The risotto is a tiny explosion of mushroom flavors hitting all the right senses. The lemon drop cocktail, not your typical lemon drop, is smooth and uniquely satisfying with undertones of lavender and/or honey. I highly recommend Bar Avignon for a wonderfully memorable meal.
We very much enjoyed our first time dining at Bar Avignon. My wife, who is a French native, was impressed with the wine list, chicken liver mousse and especially the service. Bar Avignon has a very French feel, without the pretentiousness. It made her feel right at home, as in a neighborhood bistro in rural France.
We dined at Bar Avignon during their Beaujolais Nouveau 2017 celebration because cassoulet was being featured on their menu. It was the best cassoulet that we've had outside of Toulouse and better than many of the renditions that we tried while we were in France. It was incredibly delicious. The service, wine and ambiance was excellent as always.
Bar Avignon is one of my Portland favorites. Food and service always excellent.
My friend and I had drinks and dinner on a rainy Portland eve, we were seated in a cozy, warm corner and both had stellar manhattans. Our server recommended the beaujolais flight special, hard not to say no to that and no regrets with our beaujolais flight. I highly recommend Bar Avignon to locals and visitors.
Second time there, first was quite good, although the small plates were better than the appetizers. This time the food was good but nothing jumped out, and for the prices something, especially in this town, should. Chicken Liver terrine was nice, the mushroom risotto was nice, the service was great, really great. If I lived in the neighborhood and had money this would be a great hang, but I'm not sure the restaurant knows what it is. The seafood sausage was bland, and the mussels in a cream sauce felt unfinished and ultimately disappointing. Maybe just an off night in the kitchen.
