One of our favorites , the long time staff make you feel like family !
Amazing wine! We had the trout special and the rabbit pasta, both were spectacular. Love this restaurant.
My favorite NW Portland resturant. Always excellent. Great wines. Great service. Warm and comfy too.
Everything was superb, as usual.
always excellent, try the lamb osso bucco!!!!
An excellent happy hour and dinner with Foodie friends visiting from Vashon Island, WA. We recommended the calamari appetizer and it was especially good: perfectly sauteed and spiced. Also we enjoyed the special brussel sprout salad and the fish special trout with a piccata sauce, potatoes and spinach. They loved the house-made pasta with rabbit sauce, as well. We shared 2 bottles of excellent Tuscan red and finished the night with Grappa, Sambuca and an Affogato! A good time was had by all! They'll be back again on their next visit to Portland and will share their experience with family and friends. Also must give a shout out to the impeccable service of Heather!
This reservation wasn’t a reservation - they had no table ready for us, until we were seated 25 min later at the bar, and the rest of the experience was similarly underwhelming. Hoping to find a new neighborhood hangout, instead had a one-and-done experience among the masses of restaurants near our house. It was a bummer.
Another excellent happy hour and dinner at Bar Mingo! On this occasion we dined with a lovely couple who are chef/owners of another Top 100 Diner's choice award winners. It was their first time at Bar Mingo. They thoroughly enjoyed the calamari and the house lasagna and the cacio e pepe pasta. I had the swordfish special with an olive tapenade, green beans and potatoes. And we topped off the evening with Affogatos. Delicious! Service from Patty was professional and gracious. A good time was had by all!!
Excellent food and food choices. Great service. We will be there again - and again.
Really a great comfortable neighborhood place. Love it here
Overall the food just wasn’t that good. We had two dishes we enjoyed but two that we barely could finish. Sadly we won’t be returning.
Fantastic dinner-the food was exceptional and the service outstanding.
Perfect for Anniversary dinner
Food, service were great
Good food and good service. Nice range of menu options and daily specials. Always find something I'm excited to order.
Great experience at Bar Mingo - 2nd times the charm...went New Year’s Eve and the service was a little off, but NOT this time. The service matched the food this time - overall a great experience!! We will be back - our new Portland favorite restaurant!

Quality of e v e r y t h i n g is A+.
Hats off to owner Michael Cronin + staff Sam, Gino, Jerry, and all all all of the other hard workers there.
Really good value for the meal. Drinks and Dinner with all considered was teriffic. 4 for dinner and we had to make the play at 7:30. No problem. Service was exceptional. Reservation honored and excellent window table. Will do again in near future
Very nice evening. Nice table, good food.
Fantastic Food! Service just a bit off, lacked the attentiveness at this price point.
Food was good our server acted like he didn't want to be there. Didn't check on us once.
The food and service were excellent. Bar Mingo has never disaapointed.
Calamari first course was outstanding...perfect seasoning; cooked just until warm and tender. Freshly made pasta cannot be beat..we tried 3 different options and all were superb. Swordfish special was delicious but we also swooned over the sautéed spinach accompaniment. This kitchen is skilled in its seasoning technique. Service was practiced, proficient, attentive and friendly. The wine list offers a nice variety of Italian and domestic varietals. Everything we tried was terrific. We will return!
The lasagna is the best I've ever had. The lamb shank and risotto were lip smacking good. Our only criticism was the scarcity of the rabbit ragu with the tagliatelle. More bunnies? The waiter ran next door to Cafe Mingo when their Brunello de Montalcino ran out. That was very service oriented! I prefer Bar Mingo's menu to Cafe Mingo's. Sorry Mike.
I have been to Bar Mingo quite a few times, both for happy hour and regular menu. Both have been great.
Good and service is excellent.
My son came from out of state and I wanted to take him to my favorite restaurant He loved it!
Consistently well prepared and flavorful food . Excellent choice for dining out.
The fish and pasta were expertly prepared. We enjoyed the cheese plate selections and bread very much. The profiteroles were outstanding, and a decadent finish to an enjoyable evening out. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions. We will return!
We 45 miles from Portland so we don’t get to eat here often but consider it one of our favorites! Great food and service!
Being totally Sicilian I’m a very critical judge of Italian and Sicilian cuisines and proud of it. Everything we ordered was outstanding and we ordered big there was no big explanation about the entrees which I prefer let the food speak. The service was outstanding and the kitchen was on the job our food was served hot and in a timely manner. A huge plus they have Cannoli on the menu and that is a very dangerous endeavor with me San Francisco has great Cannoli and these were very close in quality. Highly recommend this establishment cannot wait to return.
Bar Mingo is always delicious,and Heather is wonderful.
I loved the combination of really good food and really good live music! I can’t wait to go back!
Bar Mingo never disappoints. The crowd this time was louder than usual but still had a great time with family with wonderful food. Starting with crusty bread with amazing olive oil and salt. The brussel sprout salad special was delicious. We each ordered a separate pasta dish and shared bites. All yummy, especially the gnocchi!
This was our first experience at Bar Mingo, and the entire experience was top-notch. From the moment we entered the establishment, the people were friendly and welcoming. The ambiance was lively in the establishment. There was an informal feel but that is what made the food taste better and the dining experience so positive.
Another fantastic dinner! Thank you to Heather and Sam and Jerry!!!
We’ve eaten at most of the Portland hotspots and this is one of the best. Service is top notch, food is outstanding, nice ambience and lots of attention to detail. Vincenzo made us an awesome Italian meal and his years of experience in Italy clearly shows. Highly recommend Bar Mingo!
Have been to Bar Mingo many times. Always go there when I have special occasions or great friends I want to treat to an amazing time. As usual, food was awesome, Patti is a terrific server, and three people I took who have never been there were blown away by the awesome food, service and atmosphere. I have never had a poor experience here and the food quality is unmatched and consistent every time. Highly recommend it. Chicken Livers, Shrimp Speidini, Tagliatelle with Rabbit, and Gnocchi are sure fire dishes certain to please the most discriminating guests. The bread is also fabulous.
We have been going here for years. We bring our friends and family and always have great food. One of our favorites!!
