TJ's dishes highlight our housemade charcuterie, locally-sourced meats, and seasonal vegetables. Come to enjoy a unique meal of family style plates and traditional entrées under our glowing MEAT sign. Our extensive wine list curated by Food & Wine Top Sommelier 2018 will provide an excellent complement to your dinner, focusing on Old World wines alongside local favorites. With the sleek industrial design reflecting warm candlelight, the romantic ambience of European dining is alive and well at original location of Olympia Provisions. We accept reservations for all sizes, please call for groups of 9 or larger!

Dinner with an old friend who enjoys good restaurants, and servers who care about the food. We each had a Sherry flight plus two boards, and it was delicious and ample. We could catch up and felt cared for by the staff who are knowledgeable but never pretentious.

We visit Portland 2 to 3 times a year doing the Expo Antique Show and always plan a visit to this Restaurant, the food is great, the salads creative and perfectly dressed. The staff is always friendly and helpful with great wine advice if needed and they know how to stage your meal. Great place!!

I have been making sausage and other meaty goodness from the Olympia Provisions book for years and after making the pilgrimage I can finally say that it lives up to the hype. "The Benedict" was a revelation. By far the best eggs Benedict I have ever had, which also convinced me that I need to find the time to start smoking my own sweetheart hams. All of the protein options are fantastic, but what is truly remarkable is how well vegetable components balanced and uplifted the heavier aspects of the meal. I cannot recommend this place enough.

I would recommend this restaurant to a very specific type of person.

Portions are small but yummy and the menu is limited to just a few options.

The almond appetizer was terrible. Just a handful of salted almonds on a saucer.

Service was fine. Not superior and not rude.

The location was great and the decor was very nice. Sort of modern industrial meets library.

I had the black cod. It was tasty but the ratio of fish to chickpeas was off. My friend had the steak tar tar. I had a taste of it and it was a bit bland. Was expecting a beefier taste.

Overall this was a fine place to get a lovely quick meal before a show. It would not be my style but I would still recommend it to friends that would like that style of cooking.

The food and everything was so good! But the BATHROOM WAS SUPER DIRTY! They need to do something about that. I judge restaurants a lot if bathrooms are clean or dirty. Overall food was great.

Kim is one of the best servers we've ever had, she knows exactly when to step in and made an excellent wine substitution recommendation when the bottle we ordered was unavailable. Couldn't have been happier with my girlfriend's birthday dinner, for which Kim also gave us a free dessert with a birthday candle on it!

While the ambiance and service were great, we certainly expected more from a restaurant that had achieved 4.5 stars on Yelp with a thousand reviews. The food had potential but was consistently over-salted. For instance, the housemade foccacia was good only after pulling off the extremely salty top crust. The mixed drinks were good though!

Never before had I had such bad service. We made a reservation 3 weeks in advanced only to be sat 30 minutes late. We constantly had to remind waiters that we ordered drinks or food. Food was forgotten, drinks forgotten, we were left alone for 30 minutes at one point. Awful experience that became a joke at one point. The food was fantastic. Just buy their meats and leave - dont stay for the experience.

Took five other people for a business dinner. A couple of us had luggage, and our hostess gave us a spot to store it while we enjoyed dinner. Great start.

Cool place with an open-ceiling, industrial vibe. We enjoyed the Italian Board, the Spanish Board, and the Cheese Board for starters. Every bite was fantastic.

For the large plates, we had halibut and choucroute garnie. Everything was amazing. The meats were very fresh, easy-to-chew, and tasty. While not the feature, the fingerling potatoes that came with the meats were outstanding--light with a crispy exterior. We were too full for dessert.

Great wine list, too. The time between ordering courses was a little long. We were almost done with the small plates before we ordered large plates. For a during-the-week business dinner, I would have liked to have ordered large plates sooner. This is a nit in an overall great experience.

The menu looked very creative. We went because the online menu attracted us. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. The baguette was on the verge of stale . Portion size is skimpy, flavors weren’t distinct and the main course was good but not great. I’m glad we tried the lamb but the eggplant was served cold and cheese was a drop. Service was very good but location was in a warehouse area which hasn’t developed into a cool location.

Came here for a business dinner and shared multiple meat boards and small plates with the group. Everything was spectacular. Not a disappointing plate was served. Wine and beer and cocktails were kept flowing. Three different desserts were shared. All were amazing. Noise levels were comfortable. We could carry on our business without straining to hear over a din. Appreciated the ability to make reservations for our group; even a good same-day selection of table times was available. Our conversations carried into closing time and all were very gracious about it. Highly recommend.

Utterly astonishing quality of food, from exquisite variety and counterpoints in charcuterie platter, to a subtle and sublime filet tartare and perfect gem lettuce salad, and a couple of exotic wine recommendations that excelled with each dish! All were from the GM Stuart’s suggestions. And after that track record, a dessert recommendation for a dense and rich dark chocolate mousse, paired with a homemade pamplecello capped off a meal that will be talked about for years to come. I was a lone diner, tipped off by a review saying they were the best sausage makers in the USA, and their mastery of the experience was simply legendary.
