Bar Mingo is always great. Food, service, drinks—the best.
Outstanding! The mushroom crepes are crave worthy, as is the lasagne bolognese. The olive oil cake with tayberries was a perfect summer dessert. Heather is a wonderful server!
It was wonderful-thank you!!
We love this restaurant, it’s one of the greats that deserves even more attention. Each dish is sublime. The perfect pasta. Great atmosphere without being pretentious.
Excellent food and service. The HH wine is always exceptional.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Portland. It meets our requirement of having great food, great and friendly staff and parking off street.
Perfect neighborhood gem. Wonderful service, homemade pasta, great wine.
Nice place to meet friends, as we did!
Quick and efficient service, great food and reasonably priced. One of our favorites!
Bar Bingo is a favorite! Food, drink & service are always spot on. Well crafted cocktails and nice wine selections. A go to for every day or special occasions.
Food and service are always great
Awesome, chilled evening with great, friendly staff.
Food was good, service was poor. Too many other restaurants with good food and much better service.
The people at Bar Mingo are professional, informative and friendly. The food is great. We've eaten at Bar Mingo dozens of times and never been disappointed. This is a place where they'll remember your preferred drink after a few times. Where you can trust the recommendations for food and wine. Where the price of the special is written on wall. And the special is special.
Really enjoyed our first visit to Bar Mingo. Pastas were delicious and the portions were just right (not the gigantic portions you get at some restaurants). Service was friendly and efficient. We were also happy to see a wine list that offers some reasonably priced choices. Overall a great experience and we will be back!
We came to celebrate Mother's Day one day early. Bar Mingo was our first choice. We love the selection of salads, pastas, and main dishes. Of course, we love the high quality bread (from Pearl Bakery, I think) as well. I ordered the Crispelle with mushrooms and ricotta...so good! One of our sons ordered the gnocchi with tomato cream sauce. The gnocchi were perfectly tender little pillows of deliciousness. Our waitress (sorry! forgot her name!) was warm, professional, and attentive. She took the time to answer our questions and made us feel as though we were her only customers. Bar Mingo has become one of our favorite places to dine. It's all about the food which fits in with my philosophy, "life is too short to eat mediocre food". The atmosphere is relaxing and casual. We look forward to coming for happy hour sometime soon!
Great food, great service, great environment live music, what more can you ask for!
Pasta was wonderful as usual; had lasagna and tagliatelle (I think) with sausage. Bread is way too good; hard to keep from getting filled up before pasta!
Fabulous food, great service and intimate atmosphere!
Hadn't been to Bar Mingo for some time, but decided upon dinner there before going to the theater. As I had remembered it, the food was fresh, tasty, and nicely served. Will definitely return.
Cousin is up for California for a wedding shower. Such a yummy dinner;
We never got our table. Waited for over 30 minutes, as did several others with reservations.
A nice standby, but not much change over the years.
Awesome as usual!!
Excellent pasta and Italian food that provides a venue for live jazz on Sunday evenings. Given the quality of the music and very attentive service, this is an excellent value and very pleasant restaurant/bar. Cocktails were excellent as well and very reasonably priced.
My husband and I discovered Bar Mingo on a recent trip to Portland. What a lovely dining experience. I loved the semi- casual and very comfortable environment....still felt elegant enough for a special event or date night. The gnocchi was probably the best I have ever had, cooked to pillowy-soft perfection. My husband had the vongole pasta which he enjoyed. The service was excellent. Overall a very pleasant and satisfying dining outing.
This just might be our new favorite place! We began with appetizers - husband ordered oysters and I had clams. We split the main course - sausage with polenta and spinach, and split the dessert salted chocolate torte. We each had drinks - he had the Manhattan, I had a martini. Every single thing was delicious. Our waiter (Eric) was just attentive enough to make sure that we had everything we needed - excellent!
Wonderful food and service. Very nice evening and the prices were right on.
Eugene was great, we always have a wonderful time when we dine here!
another evening of great meals at Bar Mingo.
maybe a dozen visits. never fails!
Bar Mingo always a delight with wonderful food and great service
I love Bar Mingo. The ambience is wonderful, great urban vibe. The staff are outstanding - friendly, great service. And the food is always delicious. The lasagne bolognese is an all time favorite.
I had the petrale sole and it was amazing. The service was incredible, the drinks were interesting and very good. I would recommend this restaurant highly AND if you just want drinks, the bar area is cozy and warm.
My husband had the risotto, which has sausage in it...he's a vegetarian, so we thought we could remove the pieces of sausage (since he loves risotto!), but they were way too small to pick out. He ate it anyway, and didn't regret it. I thought I'd be able to eat the sausage out of his dish, so didn't order very much...a side of polenta, and a side of beets. But we didn't like the beets at all, alas. As always, though, the bread is outstanding (though I have to ask for butter instead of the I-suppose authentic olive oil served with it). I filled up on the bread before the meal even arrived...have to find out where they get their bread! And the almond-cake dessert was delicious. A great neighborhood place, and we always have interesting conversations with the couples sitting next to us!
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.
