One of the more creative menus in Portland. Continental cuisine with emphasis on nightly specials. We had the cassoulet and the short rib parpadelle on a recent winter nite. Great service in a quiet atmosphere. Great for before or after movies in the Hood.

Went to show at Crystal Ballroom. Went to Cassidy's for pre-show meal. Our server was excellent. He made great recomendations for meal choice. My wife had ravioli and I had cod with Brussel sprout-lemon flavored appitizer. Wonderful flavors and unique flavor palette. Excellent drinks, campy atmosphere. I will definitely go back.

So noisy that out table could hardly converse. Service was slow. The glass of red wind that I ordered was undrinkable and I sent it back. Food was ok but not fabulous enough to make me want to repeat the experience.

We’ve been a fan for a while now but something was different this last visit. Hair found in salad; no croutons in Caesar salad but was told there were “ shredded” croutons included?? What? Crouton dust? It was odd.cajun oysters were yummy. Tasty ribs.

I was a bit concerned when we walked in as there were so few people. Our reservations were for 7 PM. It's a limited menu but the food was good and so was the wine . The place is funky and staff was great. Our group enjoyed the quiet evening. U imagine they are really busy during games.

This restaurant was not busy at all. We went on a Saturday night during the summer, yet we were the only ones in there for part of our meal. The lack of customers made me nervous about the quality of the food; but the meal was incredible! I ordered a baseball steak. It was delicious, and it came garnished with roasted red potatoes and grilled green beans. The presentation was much nicer than I expected given the lack of flare in the restaurant (the restaurant had a low-quality feel and look, with old tables and boring decor).
Bottom line, the food was really good!!

I'd describe this place as upscale casual. We went on a Saturday night and there was only a few other people there so it was quiet. Happy hour menu was great, really good food for the price. Their beer was good also. My only complaint, and it's kind of a big one, is that as the night went on we had quite a few fruit flies buzzing around our table. By the time it became a real nuisance we were just about done so rather than find a different table we just mentioned it to our server before we left.

Engaging menu with creative combinations of foods and flavors. I had the beef/mushroom ravioli topped with arugula; it had subtle yet bright flavors and the crunch and mild bitterness of the arugula deliciously contributed to the sweet complexity of flavors.
Partner had the braised beef shank on mushroom risotto. Rich and immensely satisfying for even big appetites. Tender beef fell from the bone and melded with the creamy ravioli. So yum. Dessert was flourless hazelnut torte and homemade vanilla ice cream. Dreamy!

We had an excellent experience for a friend's birthday party. The staff was especially accommodating to our need for extra space. The food was excellent and the pricing decent. We had a brand new server, who handled our group like a pro. Kudos to her. Thank you, Cassidy's for a perfect evening

Don't let the non descript outside fool you. Cassidy's serves up some fantastic grub. Our server Jenn was great at knowing the menu and providing timely service. The cocktails are ample with some unique combinations and are very affordable. Their wine list is very local .
I had the beef short ribs which were cooked perfectly with a wonderful shroom polenta. My wife got the Halibut special. We both won the clean plate club.
We will be back for sure and they are starting a new menu and new happy hour menu change this upcoming week. With all of the entertainment venues close by, this is a great choice. Also, they have two happy hours....the late one being 10p-2a.....so that is good to know when you have out of town guests arriving late at PDX.

The food and service were excellent. The mussels were very fresh and the kale salad used local ingredients.

This is an older restaurant so its not fancy, but the food was wonderful! We did the Portland Monthly menu and had fish and French onion soup with the cherry bread pudding for dessert. I saw people getting the mussels and pomme frites and that looked fantastic! Have to try that next. This is a nice place for good casual dining.

Cassidy's is a Portland gem. It's a fantastic location for dinner before heading to events at the Crystal Ballroom. The restaurant isn't trendy, but it is one of the rare ones that have stood the test of time and the food has always been great. The Rockfish and the kale/butternut squash salad were on the Portland Dining Month menu were wonderful. The interior is a throwback to the yesteryear of Portland. The service has always been reliable too.
