A Portland institution since 1903, Besaw’s has reopened its doors two blocks from its original locale, reintroducing its blend of contemporary Pacific Northwest cuisine and impeccable service standards. The new location offers gorgeous custom wallpaper (an homage to their old garden) and timeless design (you'll also quietly appreciate the sound-absorbing panels hidden behind the pressed tin ceiling tiles.) Serving classic dishes from meatloaf to perfectly cooked roasts, and using the best products from local farmers - Executive Chef Dustin Clark (formally of Wildwood) and his team consistently delight and impress the palate. Besaw's IS bona fide comfort food and a proud staple of the dining scene in Portland.

With our sister bar, The Solo Club, next door and shared delightful patio space, we accept reservations for parties of 1 to 400!
