Friends get together! Always enjoyable when we come into Hoda’s. Amazing food and service. They really treat you like family.
We had reservations and they were busy; they sat us at the bar while we waited for our table.
I loved my experience at Hoda's. The food was SO fantastic and there was SO MUCH of it (I ordered the vegetarian mezza and vegetarian stuffed grape leaves). I did not leave hungry. Our server had a wonderful sense of humor and she took good care of us. I live 90 miles away from Portland otherwise I'd be back at Hoda's every week.
Love this place. My go to while in Portland for Mediterranean food. None better.
Great food. I love this place!
Wanted to try another middle e
Food was amazing, and portion sizes were generous. The warmth and conviviality of the staff made dining at Hoda an absolute pleasure.
I would only recommend Honda’s for takeout. The noise level was off the charts. I’ve been in plenty of busy restaurants, with no noticeable noise problem. There are easy steps to take to reduce noise levels. Also, I waited for more than 1/2 hour just to get a cup of tea, before our order was taken.
Great, fresh, heathy food with lots of vegetarian options. Exceptional service!
Great spot for fresh authentic Middle Eastern Cuisine. Exemplary staff. I recommend Hoda's for anyone, but especially for those that enjoy a bit of a communal dining experience with friends. This is a wonderful kitchen experience. Enjoy. We have!
Good food, especially the warm pita bread which they delivered without having to ask.
First, they didn't have my reservation because they said something about them not being a part of open table right now or something like that.
They didn't not acknowledge me for quite awhile after arriving and I noticed with other people that entered after me. They served me a martini in a water glass. The falafal (sp) was dry. The food was just honestly, the worst I've ever eaten. It was edible, but not good.
The waitstaff seemed to not be very happy, but our waiter was very nice to me and my guests. I was truly disappointed because they wanted good mediterranean fare and I thought I was taking them to someplace special. I won't be back. But again, our waiter was good! No complaints about him at all.
Just damn good middle eastern fare. Best hummous ever.
Very nice restaurant with authentic Lebanese food.
Wonderful food and server. Very accommodating and attentive. Food was very fresh and flavorful, everyone at the table left satisfied! Second time at Hoda’s. Will be going again for sure!
Where do I start? My family and I know Middle Eastern food well (my wife is Egyptian, after all), and Hoda’s gave us the BEST Middle Eastern food and dining experience we’ve ever had in the Portland area. We dined at Hoda’s for Mother’s Day and enjoyed their multi-course Mother’s Day special, and it was INCREDIBLE. We will be back, for sure.
Our waitress was amazing. Attentive and pleasant. The Hostess/Manager, not sure which was a different story. Took my Mother there for her Birthday. We were enjoying dinner and visiting. The Hostess/ Manager on 2 occasions made comments to the effect of: “If we could get these 2 people to leave anytime soon”
1st off, it wasn’t busy. There was no waiting. There were 2 of us in a corner. We had, with our reservation, ordering and eating. Been there an hour and 15 minutes. I have been to Hoda before during the week and it has been packed! I have never experienced this from them before. Was very disappointed. Very unwelcoming.
When our visitors return to Portland, they request another meal at Hoda's. The combination of great food and friendly ambiance make it always a pleasure.
Lovely family owned restaurant! Our dinner was awesome, service was great..
Met up with friends and had a nice evening of eating, talking and laughing. Food was very good and Hodas was able to offer options that met our special dietary needs.
The food was absolutely fanatic, there wasn't anything that we had that wasn't great. The service and attention we reciecved was just as good. This one restaurant we will definitely be coming back to.
Haven’t been here since about 2005 and the food was every bit as good as I remembered. Split the Taste of the Middle East with my son, and we had a great experience. The staff was attentive and we will definitely return!
Only hiccup was that they weren't really using OpenTable much that night ... so there was actually no table available when we walked in, and the place was slammed. They accommodated us at the back bar and we were quite fine with that. We had the Portland Dining Month prix-fixe menu and it was great, so much so that we had plenty to box up and take home. The lamb shank is ginormous. One of them could easily feed two. We'll be back, maybe on a quieter night though.
Our waitress is very honest, hard worker and friendly. I came with my wife and our 2 adult kids and their partners. The food is great from appetizers to desserts. And we didn't feel that we were rush. We had plenty of time to finish our food before we asked for the check. You don't get that quality of service anymore. Others will rush you to accommodate more customers.
Fabulous food! Loved all the gluten free options, even with Portland Dining Month options. Can't wait to return!
The food was excellent. It got a little loud where we were sitting but the food made up for that. We are planning to go back and bring more family.
We came for a celebratory dinner with friends and were not disappointed. The food is always excellent, as is the service. A very enjoyable and welcoming place to dine!
Once again, wonderful meal at Hoda’s!
Second time here feel on Valentine's. My just below perfect mark for service was based on two of us pals being seated in the backroom right next to a huge party...25-30. Server later saying she didn't know why they put is back there as there were tables out front. It's ok, they gave us lots of love. It's the food, though, that had been flawless & plentiful, both visits. Adore the owners appearance and hugs on the way out. I will go back again and again!
We enjoyed a delightful Valentine’s Day dinner
Great, flavorful options on the special menu
The heart shaped pita bread was a nice touch
Overall WELL DONE and festive
We enjoyed a birthday celebration at the restaurant. The service was excellent and people friendly. The food was quite good and most enjoyable. The staff did everything in their power to make the celebration memorable.
A very impressive restaurant. From locally sourced everything, to excellent options for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans, to the great taste and service. This place is a definitely our our list of favorite restaurants.
Food is absolutely amazing
On of the better middle eastern restaurants we've tried. The fresh homemade pita bread was amazing and the service was friendly and efficient. Great find.
Have been dining here for over ten years now the food is always excellent. Can't wait to come back for more!
One of my absolute favorite places to go for many years now. The lamb is to die for!
Delicious! Wonderful, friendly staff and owners, fresh and grass fed !!
We were sat in front of the bathroom. There were plenty of nicer tables available in the back. I had made this reservation several days in advance. I was greatly disappointed
Food is some of the best Mediterranean on Portland. Recommend the multi course dinners or the message.
