Neighborhood Favorite. Friendly efficient staff and consistently good
Excellent food and great service!
Perfect summer night at an outside table. Delicious cocktails and food. Service was perfection with Heather.
The entree was pretty dry for a pasta with sauce. Have had it many times but this time it wasn’t up to par.
Love it here! Michael the owner is wonderful as is the charming staff. some of the best food in town!
Always great. Our go to restaurant when we know we want a well prepared dinner in a comfortable yet elegant setting.
Wonderful food, wonderful ambience, excellent service!
Kind of a semi hidden jam, the food here is always great and very reasonable price, portions are accessible for sharing and enjoying multiple dishes. Service is great and excellent selection of wine and beverages as well
One of our favorite Portland restaurants. Casual yet great service. The food is trattoria style at its best. All the homemade pastas rock! Great, reasonable wine list also.
Love Bar Mingo! Love the Shrimp Spiedini!
Wow! Really enjoyed the specials: Caponata appetizer and the Pasta alla Norma, also with eggplant in a rich tomato sauce. We requested gluten-free pasta and it was wonderful! Service was attentive even during the busy pre-Timbers game crowd that was packed in and then disappeared just before the game.
Sundays are great at Bar Mingo!
Great food! Always love a visit to Bar Mingo, & Mingo, for the food is some of the best in Portland.
would recommend the polenta w/salsa rossa, and the polenta w/carne.
appetizers are also a treat, and the martini is the best for sure.
The food was amazing and the recommended wine from our server was a great choice. We would recommend Bar Mingo to any / all who have not been there previously. Don't forget to read the chalk board for the daily specials.
We go about six times per year and have been for the last five years. We always love the quality and ambience. They also have a great Sunday night jazz session. Be sure to get at least one person at the table to pick something from the daily special menu. They put an amazing amount of creativity into their daily specials. And though the wine list fits on one page, it is brilliantly selected and righteously priced.
All the dishes we ordered were delicious! Wonderful service, too!
Excellent food and wine enjoyed during the live Jazz Sunday. Had friends coming for the first time and they were really impressed and will certainly return. Especially noteworthy were the special salad of beet, goat cheese, and arugula and the dessert special blueberry tart. Good time had by all with exceptional service!
Roasted beet and goat cheese salad was amazing. Halibut was probably the best I have ever had. Gnocchi my friend had was the best he had ever had!
Brought my Mom, visiting from Des Moines, for dinner with some friends and she absolutely LOVED Bar Mingo! The food was delicious and presentation outstanding. Especially enjoyed the tuna appetizer salad special and the special dessert: olive oil cake with mascarpone and Nebbiolo prunes. Bar Mingo is a great place to enjoy with family and friends! Mangia fantastico!!
As always, the food was great. When we arrived home, it was very disappointing to find out that we got someone else’s take home meal. It was definitely not what we would have ever ordered.
What an amazing meal. We shared to appetizer special. Scallops with marinated fennel and spicy greens. Tagliatelle with morels! Great wine, great and friendly service. We will definitely be back 😀
best food in PDX.....fun date....a new server for us, good but slower that is why a 4
Loved Bar Mingo & our wait staff was excellent, especially singling our Sam! She was excellent. Will definitely return!
We didn’t realize it was music night but we were able to switch to outside dining. Pleasant and interesting with a car crash at the corner!
Excellent Sunday Jazz night with friends! Everyone in our 5 person group raved about the food and creative cocktails. Our service and attention from the kitchen was excellent. We'll make this a regular outing on the 1st or 2nd Sunday of the month. Salute!
I LOVE BAR MINGO!!!
I’m 71, I was one of the original foodies. I love and know good food. My kids don’t like to eat with me because I’m so critical but I love Bar Mingo. I love the relaxed elegance and the food, no one matter what I’ve ordered, is always delicious. And they make great, generous drinks in my experience.
Happy hour menu always great and full menu so also + very good specials
Recent server was terrific and most in prior visits have been quite good
Patty was great. Food terrific.
Great service and food. Overall a terrific experience
We’ve happily dined at Bar Mingo before, and this meal did not let us down. Our server expertly managed several busy tables and we were impressed by her prompt attention in a busy room. The food was delicious: house made ravioli and tagliatelle melted in our mouths. And the razor clams with hazelnuts, asparagus and butter were the best I’ve ever had. Bar Mingo doesn’t claim to be a haute cuisine establishment but the food is as good as any in town.
Had the pasta special, tagliatelle with mushrooms, it was delicious. Husband had the dinner special, pork,scallopini, also delicious. Crespelles were wonderful as always. The special dessert, lemon curd tart with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, was the perfect finish to a lovely meal. Love the urban vibe and neighborhood feel. Great place.
We've been coming to Bar Mingo now for a few years and it is one of the only restaurants that sustains amazing food quality and service. It is definitely one of our favorites in Portland and it only keeps getting better! The chef Jerry Huisinga is just amazing!
It was a beautiful night to sit outside and we scored! Our server was excellent- wish I remembered her name and I would give her a shout out. Lots of choices and really appreciated the Happy Hour values. We’ve never been disappointed with Bar Mingo!
Excellent Italian food, professional and attentive service and a FUN time on Sunday night with Jazz music accompanying our happy hour and dinner. This is a great place to chat with folks next to you at the table or bar. When you're dining at Bar Mingo, you're part of the IN crowd!
The food was exquisite. Everything we ordered was wonderful. The pasta is divine. The fish cooked to perfection. Try the profiteroles for dessert. You won't be sorry. Sophisticated ambiance and good service. This place always delivers.
First time to Bar Mingo. LOVED it! Went on a Portland tasting tour the first night in town and another couple said this was their favorite restaurant in town. Definitely can see why. Has reservations for 8:00pm but got their about 25 minutes early. No problem, sat us right away. Has a nice mixed green salad which was good but the table next to us had the chopped and the beet salad. Both looked amazing. Had the crespelle crepes were the bomb. I had the fish special for the night and my husband had the pasta special (mushroom tagliatelle). The pasta is made fresh daily and you can definitely tell it. Dessert was ok, had the eclairs. Our server was Eugene and did a great job with timing the dishes. Definitely will come back if in the area. Loved the contemporary but casual décor.
Superb pasta dishes along with a delicious albacore tuna salad. Warm atmosphere and service just a perfect place for great Italian food
Wonderful food, wonderful ambience, perfect service from Heather.
Nice cozy casual space, fine with kids, fine with friends! Love their profiteroles, however you spell it.
Fantastic service, cuisine and atmosphere along with the world’s best calamari!
