Enjoyed meeting my cousin there!
absolutely the best lasagna anywhere.....great rabbit.....great salads and desserts.
excellent service by a truly professional wait staff. wines are well selected and stocked.
we have always enjoyed our 20+ meals at Bar Mingo since moving to Portland 3 years ago.
It was great
the service and staff were all fantastic and very engaging. really added the icing to the cake! i will definitely return and recommend Bar Mingo to friends and family.
My wife and I had dinner before a move at Cinema 21. Excellent food. Reasonably low noise level. We loved it.
Consistently serves up terrific house made pastas, "special" dishes most nights, and solid, friendly service in a cozy setting. Usually special risotto on Wednesday nights in the winter months. One of our "go to" places in Portland for the past 8 years!
Birthday. The food was excellent. Our water was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Such a memorable experience, gnocchi to die for, calamari the best I’ve ever had. Service was outstanding.
Memorable meal. Excellent from beginning to end. Best straight up martini we’ve ever had in Portland. Every course was delicious. We splurged on a more expensive bottle of wine per waiters recommendation; no regrets. We have enjoyed Cafe’ Mingo on several occasions but this was our first dinner at Bar Mingo. Will definitely return on our next trip to Portland.
GREAT! Loved the service, food & the ambiance👍
I brought a client visiting from NYC here for a business dinner. She was thoroughly impressed with the food, service and ambiance of Bar Mingo and compared it favorably to some of the great Italian restaurants in Manhattan. She ordered the pasta special: lamb, potato, Parmesan cheese stuffed ravioli with a lamb ragu and fresh smoked tomato sauce. And we shared the HH calamari, and lamb meatballs, salad and roasted beets. I had the fish special: salmon with potatoes and saute spinach. Everything was amazing and we personally thanked the kitchen! Our server, Patty was attentive and professional. So happy to have this outstanding restaurant in my neighborhood!
After all of these years, Bar Mingo still delights the senses. Wonderful service, delicious food, and an inviting environment, make this a true Portland neighborhood gem.
Fabulous meal from apps to dessert all superb
This is a terrific place. They are always on their game and save room for something sweet at the end.
There is not a "clunker" on the menu, it's all about YOUR tastes. Their specials are fantastic.
A bit pricey, but good places are nowadays.
This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Portland. Always great!
My husband and I took two of our friends out for dinner and had a great experience. The food was great, service was exceptional and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this restaurant!
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!
