We had an awesome opportunity to eat at the chef's counter and have Chef David Turin all to ourselves. He was generous with food and sharing his immense knowledge. It was a wonderful evening with several excellent dishes smartly paired with wine. We've been to Opus 10 several times, it never disappoints. More

Absolutely perfect! Service is spot on, and the offerings are varied and tasty. The drinks are specially made with care and creativity. We enjoyed charred cauliflower to start, and then had ragu, ribeye and risotto for dinner. We shared a fabulous coconut flan for dessert. The restaurant is cozy, but your conversations can be private. An ideal spot and a wonderful experience all around. More

I recently dined at BSC with three girlfriends for a night out. One of my girlfriends and I met earlier than our reservation to sit at the bar and sip a cocktail and take advantage of the $1 Happy Hour oysters (which I understand are for a limited time so go while you can!). The bartender was very friendly and the cocktail was delicious. They graciously offered to transfer our bar tab over to our dinner bill, which we declined and settled up there. As for dinner, the food was excellent. We all shared bites and each one was beautifully balanced and presented. The dinner service, however was lacking. I've been to many small plates places in Portland, and one of the things I love is being able to graze. However, when I ordered my first course, I was encouraged to order my main entree as well per the kitchen's preferences. This made me feel like they're interested in rushing people along. While I can understand this, as it IS a small dining room, I don't like feeling like I'm expected to eat and get out, especially as it wasn't even completely full at that time. And because of this, I didn't even finish half my large plate as I was satisfied after my plum salad. We then asked the waiter to split our bill, which we admittedly should have thought to mention at the start but is also a familiar request, and it visibly put him out. As someone who has waited tables, I felt that there was definitely a way he could have handled it better. Based on the food, though, I would still highly recommend to a friend. Looking forward to going back and having a quiet dinner at the bar some night, and the brunch menu also looks fantastic! More

We had a friendly, efficient server and a relaxed meal with a combination of small, medium, and large plates — this would be great for groups or date night. I was particularly impressed with the wine list: there were 3 pages of well-priced, interesting bottle choices, including a few that I seldom see. More

The table they sat us at was not ideal. I was crammed in and sitting in an aisle. Couldn’t really relax as much as I usually can at this restaurant. Usually I am in a booth. Tables are crammed on top of each other. If you are only two people and don’t get a booth sit at the bar. Food was awesome as usual. More
