Our food was excellent and really liked the wine selected. Only disappointment was it took nearly 3 hours for our dinner as they lost our ticket in the kitchen but in between every dish was extremely long waits. Our waiter was great about it and brought us an extra dish but at that point it was too much food. I wished for better even attention to his tables vs spending too much time with some vs others.

Wonderful dinner at Mucca celebrating a birthday. Justin and the team took great care of us. The service at this restaurant is really what sets it apart. Very rare to find in Portland. Great wine selections which paired beautifully with our meal. Courses were paced perfectly and portions were just right. Can't wait to return!

The food is creative, high quality ingredients, well prepared and nicely served. It is probably also the only restaurant in Portland where four people can have a starter, a pasta, no mains, a dessert, a glass of wine each, and spend over $300. It is good, not sure it is that good. New York City pricing in Portland OR.

This restaurant was recommended to me from a Portland friend. We were visiting. The ambiance is terrific. I server was not very friendly or cozy. But the restaurant is charming and the dinner was good. I had anticipated a more festive experience, and certainly better service.

This was my 1st time there. It was to celebrate a “big” birthday and included my 97 year old mother. The ambiance was wonderful and the service truly outstanding. Only complaint is that some of the dishes didn’t arrive hot. My risotto was just warm.... but I was enjoying myself too much to bother sending back, as were a couple of others.
I will definitely return

Very enjoyable and unforgettable dinner!

It was my boyfriend's birthday and we booked this restaurant. Started with some bread with olive oil, then we had the poached octopus and seared scallop as anpetizer. Both are really good and nicely presented.

I got black cod with truffle as main course and my boyfriend ordered duck breast. Both looked nice and tasted good, though I think my black cod is better than the duck. The duck is full of flavor but a little bit tough and kind of hard to slice. The cod is so tender and melted in the mouth while the skin part is super crispy!
After that, we shared 2 desserts. Both are so good!

The bill was 135 before tips, we are so full and think the good quality of food and service totally worth the money.

I think if it was not birthday but just a daily dinner, we would order one less appetizer and one less dessert. Then the bill would be around 100, which is really a reasonable price.

They provide fixed course tasting menu too and it is different everyday. That interests us too and we may try it next time.

I'll never understand why such a great restaurant would not place some

Amazing experience... if a restaurant offers a tasting menu - it’s a sin not to indulge. Everything was amazing, they really took the time to learn what drinks to pair with what food. Service was professional and courteous. We had a wonderful time and really smiled the entire meal. 5 star for sure.
