Departure is always good. The only thing I wish they did differently is serve things that used to be on their menu especially for people that go to departure a lot like me. I asked for the crab fried rice And they would not make it for me and I go to departure many times a year.
The duck dinner was great! Service was friendly, professional, and helpful.
This dinner was amazing!! The waiter Eric was fantastic and knowledgeable. The duck dinner was out of this world!! Will come back for that again.
Girl night out-traditional shopping trip
Great experience, very attentive wait staff and delicious food!
Food and service terrific. Very reasonably priced. We were there during Happy Hour. Will be back for sure
Food was interesting and flvl
Food and drinks were very good. We went there at happy hour and found a lot of choices at a very good price.
Food was delicious and service was outstanding.
Unique spot for a delicious meal/happy hour with friends! The view was great at sunset on a sunny winter day. We loved the crispy pork belly and spicy crab roll. The handcrafted cocktails were great as well!
Dinner and drinks at Departure were a fabulous way to celebrate my husband’s 50th!! Everything was delicious! Service great! And the ambience and view were lovely.
Loved every detail. My favorite restaurant in Portland and beyond xo
Nice place to have dinner for any occasion. Great vegan options!
It was my friend’s birthday dinner treat and we had a blast!
Skirt steak is a bust.
The food, drinks and service are always amazing. The view is also astounding.
It was an amazing night. The service was great. The food was amazing. It’s such an interesting and beautiful design. I was pleasantly surprised with the price as well. I’ll definitely be back again and again.
Great look, solid food. Service was helpful but didn’t exceed expectations!
We love Departure. My sole complaint would be that the tables are so close together, but even with that, somehow the noise level never seems to exceed what’s reasonable. The food is simply over-the-top delicious. And we’ve never had service that was anything but perfect.
Perfect place for a special celebration or to make an ordinary night special! Best food in an unmatched ambience!
Too moist too uncomfortable not great food way too ecpensivr
Great food and service!!! 10/10 would come back and recommend!!!! Although, it is a bit pricy for the amount of food given.
i specifically requested in my reservation for someone to bring my boyfriend a dessert with a candle for his 27th birthday and no one brought him anything, no one even offered us a dessert. i was so disappointed, i chose this spot to celebrate his birthday and you all failed at my one single request.
Fantastic! Interesting airline theme. Food and service was amazing. The crispy pork belly is a must and the peanut butter and jelly tart dessert was the best ever!
Thank you so much for your review EdK007! Can't wait to have you join us again soon! Cheers, Arianna Sales & Marketing Manager
Went on our anniversary and had a waiter named Austin who was outstanding! My boyfriend and I have been to Portland before but didn’t go to any fancy dinner places like this. We’re of asian decent and wanted to try pan-asian cuisine and the food was not bad. The only downside is that we wanted to try the chefs special but because my bf has nut-allergies we were not able to do it- although they did have a nut-free menu (which I think ALL restaurants should have).. With that being said, I wish they had a nut-free chefs special for people that would like to experience it but can’t because of nuts.
Overall, we loved the place. Would come back again!
Hello! Thank you for your honest review, and thrilled that you enjoyed Austin as much as we do! I apologize that we could not accommodate our Chef's Tasting Menu nut free, your safety is our number one priority. Next time you join us, let me know and I would love to come up with a specialty menu in advance for a memorable experience. Warm regards, Arianna Paulson Sales & Marketing Manager
I love this restaurant! I have been here three times bringing different people. It's a great place to take a date or go out with friends. The food is amazing (they have a gluten free, vegan, and a non-shell fish menu) and there is a deck with a city view where you can enjoy a cocktail. If you are not vegan, I recommend asking for the vegan/gluten free menu on top of the regular menu because you get more of a variety. I am not vegan, but some of my favorite dishes from Departure are from the vegan menu. The atmosphere of the restaurant is unique and trendy. The service is excellent and the waiters really help you with making a selection. It's also pretty affordable considering the high quality food, service, and atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone! Just be sure to make reservations ahead of time.
Hello Carmen, Thank you so much for your kind words! I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us and the amazing food that our kitchen works so hard to create for you! I would love to have you come back to join us in the near future, please feel free to reach out prior so I can assist with your reservation. Cheers, Arianna Paulson Sales & Marketing Manager
Our experience at Departure could not have been better. We had a very large group that that was handled with extreme skill and patience. The food, timing of the dishes, cocktails, and the ambiance was simply perfect. Thank you very much for making our time there so enjoyable.
Shawn! WOW! Thank you so much for your review, glad that we were able to have your party up for a special occasion. I will let Jennifer know about this review and your experience. Warm regards, Arianna Paulson
The food was good, but no good service
After dine nobody ask for dessert. That,s rude.
Great time. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed the meat dishes and the dessert the most.
Never disappointed, food and drinks are delicious and unique
Had dinner with my son....we ordered solely off the vegan menu —all i can say is it was excellent, complex flavors, well presented. This was fun and a genuinely good eating experience.
will definitely be back
Very imaginative cuisine and wonderfully helpful staff. There was a very strange 3 percent fee tacked on the bill without a reasonable explanation.
Austin was such a blast! All of his recommendations were spot on. Such a wonderful way to spend our anniversary. The food was outstanding and the staff was very accommodating.
Great meal, enjoyable experience!
The food was exquisite. It is family style, which is much more fun because you get to try so many other things. The service was outstanding. We sat at a tall table right by the entrance, which was an unfortunate location. It was noisy and due to my height my feet just dangled in the air. I would go again, but would request a different table.
All the staff were very courteous and friendly, food was excellent, steak was simply incredible. Nice place for a special occasion. Will absolutely go back.
Of course, the view is great. The person who took care of us was fabulous and very friendly. We thought the food was delicious and its arrival was timed perfectly as we drank and ate. All in all a lovely dinner!
Amazing food. Best Edamame I've ever had. Everything was flavorful and well presented. Drinks wer local and top notch. I cant wait for another date night there.
Overall positive experience. Every dish we tried was delicious. Fantastic views and ambiance.
Delicious food. Seared scallops with pureed cauliflower and fall beet salad were amazing. Lovely city views with rooftop balcony to enjoy cocktails 🥂
