Higgins never disappoints. I had the baked sole special and it was delicious. Just the right amount of food too.

The dining menu was amazing! Portions were a little small for $33 but still delicious.

Our server was incredible, so kind and friendly. Would definitely come back for a nice dinner in future!

Higgins is my favorite neighborhood restaurant. I even have a favorite table, and I love the regular menu offerings as much as the specials. Recently I had dessert, something in which I do not usually indulge. The butterscotch pudding (with extras) was, as my stepmother used to say, “to die for.” I’ll say that it was so superb it’s worth living a long time for.

We were greeted and seated in a section that was mostly unoccupied. Within 30 minutes my husband and I had a party of 5 on one side and a party of 7 on the other. There were plenty of other tables in the restaurant, so why they plopped us in between where 2 big parties could sit is beyond me. So ambience was shot as we couldn’t hear each other. Kami, our server was fabulous, though. All the service was amazing, they are very attentive. The food was decent. Dessert was excellent. Not sure I’ll be back though.

Such a nice place! The wait staff was quite attentive but not too much. It’s very pricey but the Portland dining Month special was outstanding . Delicious food and beautiful presentation.

Our group was there for restaurant week and the set menu just didn’t seem to have the same care and effort put into it as the regular menu. Sad to say the risotto was tasteless and the cous cous that went with the lamb merguez didn’t as much flavor and was a bit bland as well. Here for a short work trip where we regularly look for fine dining group experience, but I will likely not return for the regular menu. Service on the other was good. Waiter was very attentive.

Higgins still delights after many years! The Dining Month Menu was particularly intriguing this year and turned out to be one of the more memorable meals ever at Higgins - familiar yet updated and totally delicious. The service was professional and very accommodating.

One of the best restaurants in Portland. Can’t go wrong. Don’t miss their in-house charcuterie, it is always great.

The food was very good as well as the service. the meal took way too long to get and we probably will not be back for a lunch meeting because of that

I was not impressed by the service. We felt like we were forgotten about. The seating felt cramped and it was loud in the restaurant.
the food was delicious, but the proportions were small. Just enough to tease my tongue.

Higgins is dependably quality-oriented, with some of the best food and best service in Portland. I value their focus on fresh local seasonal ingredients, creative dishes, and a highly knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff. It is also a relatively quiet restaurant where you can engage in conversation without distraction.

Attentive staff served well crafted pasta and fish entrees in a spacious setting. The wine selection was vast. Higgins is a special place and they must know it for the price reflects its location more than it does the food served

We will be back

Classic Portland restaurant that continues to deliver great food and service. We had a combination of specials and menu items, all of which were delicious. Service was very attentive, and we were out quickly on a busy night (Valentine's Day), but we didn't feel pushed out - all courses were nicely timed. We'll definitely be back.

We had a wonderful dinner here on Valentines Day! The duck was amazing—done two ways medallions and confit. Really flavorful and the leftovers ended up making a fantastic duck Cubano sandwich. Service was excellent too.

We enjoyed delicious food, craft cocktails and wine served in the correct glasses. The food and service were truly outstanding. Unfortunately our table was placed next to the door, so it was cold at times and very loud. I would return, but would ask to be seated on the lower level.

Always love bringing out of town guests to a quintessential Pacific NW staple. Higgins was one of the first restaurants I sampled during 30 years of wine tasting in Willamette Valley before moving to Portland seven years ago. Great atmosphere and a wide array of choices. Wish they would put more seafood on the menu. Great business lunch setting. And their bar is also a nice venue.

Excellent food and service. We were a little unlucky in getting the table by the entrance. The restaurant has a few tables by the entry and in the hallway that for some may be less than enjoyable as it’s busy, drafty and loud. Otherwise an excellent experience.
