Food was incredible. Loved every dish.
This menu is always so spectacular… Service always a 10! But inparticular chef Trevor is the most remarkable in my opinion! Always made to feel special!
The tasting menu was incredible!!! Every single dish was so delicious. Everything tasted so fresh, was presented beautifully and portions were generous. We will be back!
Fun experience! A little loud in the dining room. We were at a longer table, so it was difficult to hear/talk with folks on the other end (only 4 of us there). Food was pretty good, but a little less than my last visit. Our server was AMAZING!
Great place for drinks and food. Had a great time with family & friends.
Excellent city views.
The food was amazing, however the service was disappointing. Initially we were sat down and given menus quickly. Then we waited a long long time for our waitress to come back to place an order. To the credit of the kitchen, dishes came out promptly but it was just so hard to get service from our waitress. At one point I resorted to asking the nice man filling waters for the dessert menu and our check. The waitress was a nice person, it just seemed like they are understaffed.
Table was ready for our reservation, service was very attentive and offered suggestions. Server was patient while we decided on our own what we wanted to do outside of his suggestions. Loved that the starter chicken was able to be adjusted to account for # of guess in our party.
Great location, sat outside on the patio and had an awesome view of the City. Service was a little slow for the size of the crowd but staff was nice. The food was very good, we had the skirt steak, pork belly, crab roll and shrimp fried rice. It’s a bit eclectic, fun and a trendy vibe $$$.
Always a great place to bring a guest for great food and great view.
Great night out on the town. Our waiter was amazing And was way excited about the food they prepare. This place had the ultimate dining experience for us.
My table did not get seated until 20 minutes after our reservations.
Loved the Octopus and Berries and cream dessert!! I definitely recommend those items and also the lu over the wall Portland drink! I wasn’t very hungry but these items filled me up and made my Portland experience that much better. Our waiter was very friendly also and accommodated my husband since he had an almond allergy. We will definitely be back when we visit again.
A great place but a little dark especially when trying to see bill and tip. Outstanding food and service.
This was our third visit to Departure and it was even better than we remembered. We highly recommend the ISHIYAKI steak. Best thing we’ve ever tasted. Go early and have a cocktail at the rooftop bar, and snag some Insta photos at the same time 😉
Great service and wonderful chic ambiance. I have been coming here for years. It is one of my favorite spots to chill especially when the weather is nice to be outside on the rooftop bar lounge area. If you are in PDX definitely a place to check out.
The whole fish was so delicious, we had family style dinner and were able to try different dishes. The views and the atmosphere are special.
Hip, Cool and innovative but increasingly LOUD. Broiled chicken was moist and flavorful , broccoli remarkable. Reasonable sake by the glass selection.
Outstanding flavors, especially the scallops, beef and salads. Exceptional dish presentation and quick food description from the food runners. Highly recommend for asian fusion appetite.
Unique, delicious menu. Would highly recommend!!
Poor service. Unprofessional hostess, no communication with waiters. They shuffled us to different tables.
Food below expectations and overpriced
Austin was very knowledgeable of the menu and how the dishes were prepared. Honestly one of the best servers I’ve had in a restaurant of this caliber.
Great food. Everything was so vibrant and the ingredients were sooo fresh. It was my girlfriends birthday and I wished they would have done something special for her since we spent about 200 but I wasn’t expecting it. Would definitely go again, super tasty. Oh yeah, drinks were great too except the tangerine and tequila one, neither of us enjoyed that one.
Super friendly, quality food!!!
We celebrated a birthday. The food and service were great. The view outstanding!
Nia was phenomenal!! She was professional, patient, positive, gave good advice on good, and made the evening remarkable!!
everything was wonderful. my friends really loved the food
Departure is consistently great in every way. fresh, vibrant, spicy good - the vegan and gluten free menus are excellent. the cocktails are inventive and fun.
in a varied culinary city, Departure is still in my top 5, and where I take out of town friends and have celebrations.
THANK YOU Chef GG and everyone!
Beautiful view, nice space and good service. Food was good, however, I was expecting more from the sushi for the price. It was not as flavorful or ascetically pleasing for what we paid. Specifically the cut sushi rolls.
We dined at Departure for our anniversary , only to go back for more fabulous food 2 nights later. The menu isn't large, but everything is absolutely delicious! This is one restaurant that totally lives up to the hype!!
El lugar es muy especial para ir a comer algo light y tomarse unos tragos con la pareja o amigos!
One of the best meals I’ve had in years. Loved the ambiance and the service. Our sever Jennifer was simply lovely and the chef’s recommendations were perfect!
We always love planning our special dinners for Departure. This meal was delicious and the service was exceptional.
Nice place to see the sky line of Portland and share small plates of food. Busy place so I wouldn’t say it’s romantic, but a fun girls night out.
i enjoyed everything about Departure. the only thing that could be changed is how my server was shamelessly salesy from the beginning. it was a bit embarrassing in front of my guests. he didn't even offer to comp my drink for my bday celebration or provide a slice of cake with a candle for me.
It was an absolutely wonderful meal. The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful. The staff was constantly checking in with us making sure that we were taken care of. They were really nice and extremely professional. Always a joy to come to Portland and go to Departure for a fantastic meal
It was ok. It was pretty loud and the food was really salty. Buyer beware- they have a corkage fee of $35!
Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Fantastic views, super yummy dishes, and a good value for the whole experience. Thank you!
What a great (different) experience!
The entryway makes you feel as though you’re either walking the runway to a spaceship... or in line at Disney’s Space Mountain.
Hostesses were friendly upon greeting, interior decor was reminiscent of the golden era of airplane travel, along with scenic views of the downtown Portland skyline.
Our server was polite and polished and gave us some good recommendations from the drink menu.
She advised us that the food was “sharing style” and about 2 items per person was good. (So we got 4 items and left with a doggie bag- 3 would have been sufficient.)
Overall this place was fun and a great experience. I’d highly recommend it to others visiting the downtown Portland area.
