Must try when visiting Portland. We made a reservation and were sat upon walking in. We split a bunch of tapas and they were all flavorful in their own way. The gnocchi and the risotto will change your life for the better I promise.
This my 2nd time there. The first time was a great experience. This 2nd time, however, I waited 1hr 30 min for my meal and had to take it to-go rather than eating it there, because we waited so long we were almost late for a Meetup we had planned. The restaurant did make it right by not charging for the meal. The food is always excellent!
Thank you to a gracious staff for accommodating our large party so late on a weeknight! It was a perfect evening between the food, drinks, and energetic and pleasant staff.
Service upon entering was very good. Staff was attentive but a little slower than necessary according to the crowd size. I had the duck and found the food very well prepared with excellent flavor. I found the entree to be a very interesting combination of flavors and fresh ingredients.
I've been for dinner a few times and brunch a lot. The food is delicious and always reliable. Service is excellent. You won't be disappointed coming here.
One of Portland's finest. Regular customer. Highly recommended.
The two paellas we had were both excellent and the service was great.
We had a wonderful meal on New Year's Eve and Local 188. Patates Bravas, gnocci and goat cheese gratin were all delicious. Mushroom risotto was tasty but a little heavy on the onions. Service was over the top good. Thanks for a great New Year's meal.
I have been here quite a few times. I like the open kitchen, the lighting, and location. The food was great, especially the risotto! The focaccia bread is always my fav here. My suggestion would be to consider broadening the appeal of the menu to include 1-2 healthy options, and a vegan option (considering that this is a total foodie town). I also missed the flatbread app that used to be on the menu. Keep up the good work!
Fantastic, creative food. Always friendly staff. Loved the New Years' Amuse Bouche!
