Had a reservation and arrived early. Finally seated 30 minutes after our reservation time which is understandable for the occasion. Food was just ok. Not worth the money they ask for it. I expected being in the Pearl Dist the price but the food was just ok at best. I don’t mind paying for the food if it is great. Our table was in the middle of the restaurant so people walked by the whole time. The best part of the night was the time I enjoyed with my wife.

Three of us dined. The menu is a creative on American classics. It was very well prepared, generous in portion and simply excellent. Great choice of beers and wine even wine by the glass. Our server was excellent.

The service was exceptional! We were hoping for lunch (our fault for not checking the menu in advance ). We were pleasantly surprised by the Brunch menu. The chef really has this down. One little warning, if you like bitter greens than the salad is for you, if you don’t ( like I don’t), don’t order, next time I’ll ask. The waiter was amazing in describing the greens, my fault for not realizing they would be bitter. Next time I’ll ask.

I have been here for brunch twice. Both times the food was served cold, despite the fact that it came out rather fast. Also, the hostess on both visits was rather unfriendly and bothered. Lastly, I find it despicable to charge $4.50 for a coffee. I understand the rent in the Pearl is expensive, but the amount of food you get for the prices are not worth the ambiance of the place.

Took my husband here to celebrate his birthday and was not disappointed! We got to sit in an intimate booth with walls around it on 3 sides, allowing us to be able to hear each other better but still able to look out at the rest of the vibrant restaurant which was mostly full of larger tables at that time. Our server gave amazing recommendations and everything we ate was delicious, highly recommend Espresso Fritters for dessert! Will be back again.

This is our third time at Irving and they never cease to impress! The staff are always very accommodating. Irving street Kitchen has a great farm to table setting and the food is just amazing. The menu changes every so often and I have made it a point to get something new every time. I would highly recommend trying it out.

Sunday brunch - service was super slow. Food came out at different times. Fried chicken add-on was excellent. Waffles were very tasty but unfortunately were cold. Rest of items were only warm. Would not return for brunch.

Very nice restaurant within walking distance of the Portland armory . We nick named our waitress “Alexa “ because she was so pleasant and patient when we had questions about the menu. Good service, nice wine selection and good food. A very relaxing dinner before going to the theatre .

You must go to the Irving Street Kitchen. My wife and I ate there last night with 4 friends and every item that hit the table was an absolute home run. The Charcuterie boards, appetizers, first courses and entrees were all spot on, perfectly prepared, seasoned and creatively presented. We finished with the Butterscotch pudding which was topped with caramel sauce - crazy good! And the wine list provided us with plenty of reasonable options. Table service was excellent! I can't believe that I have lived in Portland for 10 years and have never visited. I recommend that you right now and eat there!

Music was a little too loud for my in-laws to hear the whole table’s conversation. Service was kind and friendly but lacking some thoughtfulness. Since we were the last seating of the afternoon, would have appreciated if our server would have announced when the kitchen was closing to ask if we would like any last orders to be placed. We wanted more food but were unable to order - missed the window and didn’t know.

Irving street Kitchen is still pretty to look at but the food and ambience aren't what they once were. The electronic beat music was irritating. Our server was helpful but for some reason our food didn't come out together...we were a party of three and it took the expediter three different trips to the kitchen to bring out the plates . We might come back for happy hour sometime but I think we will avoid brunch in the future.
