Let me say that my husband and I are regulars. We love the ambiance and staff. The food is generally good but they do have a tendency to go heavier on the butter with some fish preparation. Such was the case Tuesday night when I had sole with capers. Disagreed with me.
Great meal. Attentive service and staff. Perfect portions. Best meal in a while.
Solid, consistent, terrific fresh pastas, nice service.....one of our "go to" favorites in a city with lots of great choices.
Exceptional service from the moment we walked in a bit early for our reservation, to over two hours later when we left feeling deeply satisfied with the entire dining experience. Before-dinner cocktails were made just right, and wine we brought along complimented each dish. Our server was attentive but not overbearing, giving us time to just chat and enjoy each other. A complimentary appetizer was a nice touch. Main courses from fish to pasta were exceptionally crafted. And, of course, a glimpse at the dessert menu was too much to resist! The profiteroles and fresh-brewed coffee topped the evening in style. I would highly recommend this restaurant and encourage a reservation!
Reliably good in food preparation, choice, service. Although we were horribly late for our reservation, they were very accommodating and made us feel welcome.
Love the food here! It is so creative and the quality is excellent. I also love the quarto of wine! Great idea.
It is very loud and very close quarters, so not great if you want a quiet chat with someone
Zipped into Bar Mingo to grab a bite with a friend. We were seated quickly and our waiter arrived to greet us. We were slow to order, but she brought our drinks and answered the menu questions. Dinner was excellent, each of us pleased with our choices, and I appreciated a special request being fulfilled on the salad. Love the ambiance--hipster cool without being annoying--and the general vibe of the place.
The food as well as the entire staff is outstanding.
Great service, awesome food!
Awesome always! Love this great place. Always consistent and delicious, great drinks, wine list is very good, fresh, authentic food. It is my "theater night" haunt before the Keller. Love it!
We saw that Open Table members liked this restaurant a nice 25 minute walk from downtown Portland and decided to give it a try.
We started with the Brussels sprouts salad. Just get it.
The crepes with wild mushrooms took this dish to a new place. The crepes were light but almost pasta-like. Perfectly cooked with an amazing sauce.
The rabbit pappardelle was also great. Not a large plate but very rich.
Get the pots de creme for dessert.
Great wine and beer recommendations from our server.
This is definitely worth the walk or a quick ride share ride.
Such delicious Italian food and in a very comfortable setting. The tables are close and so
you can smile or chat at people near you. The entrance has a "rounds-about" seating arrangement so while you are waiting you can have a drink and have conservation or sit close.
Our server was elegant and helpful with information about our choices.
The chianti we chose was the best I've tasted in years.
The dessert menu was one of variety and chosen with awareness of perhaps, a previously
rich meal of tapas.
Good clientele, the night we went, very jovial.
We've been to Bar Mingo many times, so obviously something's going right here. The food and service are always top-rate. Love this place and sharing it with friends! Thanks for everything!
Fantastic food and great staff. Been around for a long time for good reason.
Always spectacular food and even better service. Drink aficionados should try the millionaire's Manhattan!
We went with the chalk board specials and weren't disappointed - from appetizer though two entrees and then dessert, everything was wonderful! Why both looking at the menu when the daily specials are varied and appealing?
And then we noticed the sign in the window indicating the generous 10% discount for those arriving by bike. How Portland is that?! Get over there soon.
The food is exceptional and the staff are a lot of fun. Definitely recommended
Bar Mingo is one of the best restaurants in Portland. It never disappoints. The food, ambience and service is always consistently top notch. I highly recommend it.
wow food, service and ambiance were fabulous can't wait to go back
Love this place!
We love Bar Mingo. It has become one if our "go to" restaurants. They have a great variety on the menu and keep thing exciting with nightly specials. The service was impeccable.
Our food was excellent. The crispelle with mushrooms was absolutely delicious. Our table shared the peanut butter and chocolate mousse tart for dessert. What a flavor bomb...so decadent!
After not dining at Bar Minho for several years, we were once again delighted with our choice.
We started with drinks, my husband doesn’t drink but they had good NA beer, not o’douls or others, but craft!
Quickly we were offered fresh warm whole grain bread and olive oil.
We both ordered the specials. One was steelhead over a bed of fluffy gnocchi and beautiful mushrooms and green beans. The other entree was quail stuffed with mushrooms, bread and cheese? This was presented over polenta. Both dishes were perfectly prepared. The fish was moist and not over cooked, and the quail was moist.
We finished our meal with an awesome lemon tart with creme fraiche.
What a yummy experience!
I go to Bar Mingo about 12 or more times per year. This is the second time I have taken work associates to impress. The food is ALWAYS outstanding. The services is also outstanding. Even though our server Doug was relatively new, he was very efficient, had a good sense of humor and served our needs very well. My guest, as usual, were blown away and I will continue to patronize what has become my favorite Portland restaurant. This time around the Steelhead was unreal and the chicken livers and shrimp Speidini were awesome and dishes I always order or get friends to try!
Food is always excellent!
Wait staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and always attentive. Would recommend everyday of the week!
always outstanding in all regards.....our entrees were steelhead salmon and lasagna -
to perfection. wine included Shea Pinot Noir.
Great food. Great service. Thanks!
Reconnect with old friends
We came here after seeing a movie. They were very accommodating. The special, cod on a bed of spinach, was really great, although a bit salty for me. I didn't care for the lamb meatballs, but my friend liked them. Mussles we're also good, although the salad portion was kind of small to share.
what more can I say than my wife and I visit Bar Mingo once a month (we try out new
restaurants weekly) and among all PDX restaurants this feels like home. always great
food and excellent wait staff. Bar Mingo has never failed us.
Service is great here. Definitely try the Crespelle crepes and Pappardelle with braised rabbit, you won't be sorry!
This was our third visit in 2017 and it was delicious once again. The pasta is always cooked perfectly. Seafood and chops also nicely prepared.
Bar Mingo is a neighborhood "go to" for me - I've loved it forever, and when I had to live away from Portland for 4 years, it was always on my short list of must-visit spots when visiting. SO HAPPY to be back, and enjoying Mingo whenever I want! Lovely, simple, delicious, beautifully prepared food, great staff, nice urban ambience. Get in there!
We visited Bar Mingo for the first time this week and were very impressed. The food was outstanding; the ambience lively, but not too loud; the cocktails were superb; all the extras like bread and olive oil were outstanding quality.
Other than the fantastic food the best thing about this restaurant is the wonderful service we receive from our favorite server Heather.
Cheese plate was excellent ! Great waiting area and drinks before the table is ready. Excellent fresh pasta ! Service was great.
Cozy and casual atmosphere with a cool vibe. Excellent service and extensive wine list. The papardelle with rabbit had a wonderfully intense flavor. The ravioli with brown butter and sage was delicate and delicious. Dinner was topped off with a generous order of tender ricotta fritters. We will definitely be back for more!
Always Good!!! Everything is tasty, fresh and prepared well! A must visit for my wife and I when in PDX!
Great food, great service! Went to celebrate a birthday and they made the evening very special!
I am a visitor to Portland twice a year. and bar Mingo is definitely my choice and visit during my stay in Portland. Love the food there, and food quality is consistent in these years
Wonderful. Just wonderful. Hard to go wrong with anything on the menu, but the lasagna bolognese is outstanding.
