This is my fav place to eat. I have the highest expectation for food quality, service, and sanitation. I.’ve yet to be disappointed. Now that we are eating outside well into the fall; it's kind of fun to cozy up to an outdoor table eat hearty lamb shank with a romantic full-bodied glass of vino. Go. Take a blanket and feast!
Excellent given the circumstances; outside dining in October.
So so fantastic! Our absolute favorite place to eat when in town! The staff are all so friendly and the food is always on-point!
The food is outstanding , polenta with mushroom gravy !!
A rainy night in town .
A Bombay Martini accompaniment , served by a wonderful staff !
Do I need to say anything else ?
Thanks for everything Cafe Mingo !
Fabulous food, service, and ambiance! LOVE LOVE LOVE WILL B BACK!!
This place never lets us down. Every bite is YUM!!
Nice setup for outdoor dining in the NW neighborhood. Food and service are consistently excellent
ALWAYS THE VERY BEST SERVICE & FOOD!
30th Anniversary, love this place!
Caffe Mingo is doing an amazing job. The outdoor space is comfortable and as always the food is excellent.
Fabulous food and great service -- and excellent outdoor dining for Covid safety. I had a wonderful pinot noir and two vegetable sides (I'm veganish) and my friends had pasta dishes that were excellent. The service was terrific, and we really appreciate Mingo creating the outdoor space. One of our favorite restaurants in Portland.
Our first COVID-19 fine dining experience and it was a great one. We ate outside at 4p. The evening was beautiful. Service excellent. Food delicious. (recommend the Ca del Baio Barbaresco). Thank you.
Always tasty—-salmon cooked to perfection, pasta with melt-in-your-mouth ragu. What’s not to love? Added bonus: a quick dash into Mercato next door to pick up fresh pasta, ragu, poached prunes, and wine for dinner the next night. The Mingo “grocery store” is as perfect as the restaurant. Five stars all around.
Super nice gal that was waiting on us! Very pleasant !
We are regulars and are always happy with our experience and the food is delicious! Favorite restaurant in PDX!!
It my our first time and we have absolutely zero complains. The oysters, caprese, Bistecca, and Tagliatelle special we’re out of this world. Incredibly fresh ingredients and very well prepared. Service was great and our waiter Eric made a great wine recommendation. We’ll be back and suggest everyone tries it out!
amazing food, excellent service.. happy to choose Mingo as my 1 time out per month dining experience.
Sat outside during Covid and still had an outstanding experience. The creamy mushroom on crispy polenta was delicious beyond words. Ordered two to go. Still one of my all time favorite restaurants. Keep Caffe Mingo on your radar. They are amazing.
Amazing food. Terrific service. And fantastic drinks
The romaine salad was tasteless. Watery dressing with no taste. White/Yellow limp lettuce.
Pasta was outstanding. Service was great
Went for my birthday with a friend and this was perfect! Outdoor seating with very nice and knowledge staff. Delicious foods and the cask cocktails were freaking delicious!!!
waiters are super friendly and informative. makes the dining experience excellent.
Mingo is and will always be one of our very favorite neighborhood restaurants.
We had a lovely dinner on the patio. The food was simple, yet exceptional. Service was excellent. Recommend the tuna crudo!
They’ve done a nice job maintaining the dining experience we expect from them during CoVid. We liked the restaurant shift into the Bar Mingo side as it is larger and offers full bar!
AWESOME. Really loved it! Mingo always has exceptional food and service.
This has been our favorite restaurant on the planet for 20+ years. Was so afraid that they would just call it quits. But no, they have persisted! The caprese, the sugo, the Michael, it's all still there.
Excellent creative COVID solution for in and out dining! Well done.
Everything was great, especially our server Eric!
We are regulars at Bar Mingo, and wanted to give the new outdoor cafe a try. The host was not friendly at check in and took us to a sidewalk table. I inquired about a table in the new bump out area because it had more room, and the host was again very curt in his reply that it was saved for someone else. We ended up having a nice time with Douglas taking care of us. Food was great as always with helpful wine advice. A gentle reminder that our eyes and our voice go along way towards making people feel welcome when we are masked up.
Great food and excellent service. We loved the pasta and fried polenta dish. We'll be back!
Considering the COVID restrictions, unlike other restaurants that have reopened, you don't feel like you are picnicking with paper plates and plastic utensils. The food continues to be as good as ever.
Great food and specials. The covid protocols were great and we felt comfortable.
This is my favorite restaurant. I have been dying to go back. Nothing tasked the same. It was honestly horrible. From salad to dessert, everything was bad. What happened???
There are no superlatives “super enough” for Mingo. Its been my go to spot for more years than I can count—- old but always new— never disappoints. Long may Mingo reign!!💕💕
A wonderful outdoor dining experience! Friendly, attentive service, excellent food and a well thought out seating arrangement in these interesting times. Perfect location for a summer evening - warm, but sheltered from hot sun.
Wonderful food and service
Excellent service, outstanding food in a safe and enjoyable setting,
These people know what they're doing, and they do it reliably well.
The wait staff was outstanding... they found us a spot enter their awning on the sidewalk, so that we stayed mostly dry, in spite of the most unseasonal rain. The lasagna was outstanding, the salad wonderful. the Barbera was great.
