    The Food is outstanding. We each started with a glass of white wine, both of which were crispy and tasty, excellent wines. Our first course we shared pate served with mustard and greens but we turned down the bread. The pate was typical and nothing special. There were two triangles which were perfect for sharing. Then on to the main course. My wife's halibut was perfect on a lightly seared vegetable bed with many small shrimp. My buttermilk fried quail was also on a bed of lightly seared vegetables. It, too, was perfect and most enjoyable. For dessert we opted for a cheese plate. The cheese was unnamed and had a brie taste but with a gummy texture. It was ok but that was it except for five cherries and a walnut. But, if you can believe this, they have NO COFFEE or TEA. Overall, if you want to go on an expensive diet, this is the place. The price is very high relative to portions served which are small. No glass of wine is less than $14. We recently returned from Spain (I had their glass of Spanish white on that day's list.) which I paid $15, if I remember correctly, and similar wine by the carafe was either free with the meal at a cost of only €7 while a glass cost a third of that. I would end by saying it is overpriced but the food is outstanding and worth one visit because the food is so good but be prepared to leave wanting more in your belly.

    We enjoyed a wonderful selection of shared plates - starting with the scallops crudo, then chinook salmon carpaccio, followed by pate with little t baguettes & olive oil- then moved on to sole paupiette, buttermilk fried quail, coppa pork steak and beef steak slices. We keep coming back to Davenport’s to try the new selections on their menu. Never fails to disappoint! A great place for celebrations or simply to enjoy with family and friends!

    Perhaps the best oysters in Portland, followed by some of the most savory dumplings I’ve ever tasted. The pork was perfect, and the roasted raab was beautifully balanced with anchovies and egg. At Davenport the ingredients shine, yet the cooking is so nuanced and creative that the flavors are both elevated and integrated. The vibe is laid back, but the service is excellent—friendly, appropriate, and prompt. The fairly-priced wine list is full of treasures. This is one of Portland’s best restaurants.

    Best dining experience I’ve had in the last year. Such a great restaurant. Every detail is perfect, the staff are so friendly, attentive, and skilled, and the food is so so so good! I love the combination of creativity and basic don’t-get-the-way-of-great-ingredients approach that has characterized this restaurant/ chef from the very start. For a special occasion night out it’s Davenport for me every time.

    The food is perfect. If you gamble on a menu item and you like to eat, you will be pleasantly surprised. The wine list is impressive, daunting even. But they can help, even pick a bottle for you. I can't speak highly enough of the quality people making this an experience to show off to only your most highly regarded friends and family. It is unique to Portland and the rest of the world

    Had been wanting to check out Davenport for years, glad they made it through the Dark Times. Didn't realize it was a "small plates" place. The food was delicious though in the process of getting enough small-plates for the table of four, we racked up quite a bill. No regrets though! The server had great skills, timing, and an excellent command of the wine list.

    We had an 8:30 reservation on Open Table and they were very busy. We were greeted professionally and apologized to for a bit of a wait. We were offered a wine list and had a drink in our hand right away. We were seated at 9:00pm. The service was extremely good and all of the staff were very professional. The food overall was very good. The beet salad is excellent over the greens witch was mostly a red cabbage. Not my favorite. Oysters were excellent, and although small portions on the entrees the price is appropriate. We ordered 3 entree’s for 2 of us and were full in the end. It was an experience, glad we tried it!

    The food at Davenport was disappointing all the way around. We had oysters, scallop crudo, beets, chicories, Arctic char and roasted duck leg. Everything needed more acid, except the salad, which was so vinegar-y that is nearly peeled the skin off my lips. Otherwise, it was all a bit bland, and the chef had his mask hanging off his ear the whole time he was preparing everyone's food. The staff that welcomed and served us were incredibly kind, and, when they forgot our chicories, not only took it off the bill, but brought us some nice dessert wine on the house after our meal. I wish the food lived up to the service.

    What a pleasant surprise Davenport was for our low key date night. Simple, thoughtful menu. Each dish exquisite. At first glance at the meat centric menu, I was unsure being vegetarian would provide me with enough options. Was then blown away by the three dishes I ordered. What had initially felt limiting… now felt curated & beyond expectation! My very carnivorous husband was also in his element! He enjoyed my vegetarian choices nearly as much as his own. His only concern was deciding which of the incredible dishes to choose?! We rarely feel like we can eat out better than we can cook at home… but Davenport was the complete dining experience. Excellent menu, excellent presentation, excellent taste, excellent service, excellent experience. Thank you!
