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.

The food is quite expensive for a Modest portion size. A lamb shoulder and cod dish with 2 old fashioned cocktail cost us 100$ or 2 people

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.

My favorite restaurant in Portland. Their brunch is outstanding, and their service never disappoints. The best part is that they accept reservations, which most restaurants in Portland don't!

Our dinner was delightful - the atmosphere was energetic, our food was beautifully prepared, balanced, and unique, and moreover our service was excellent! Of note, the general manager was remarkably helpful, offering detailed tasting notes for our food and wine. We appreciated him sharing so much knowledge with us and contributing to our evening. Thank you - we will be back again with friends!

It had been a year or two since we had been here. We got last minute bar seats on the way to a concert. Everything was fantastic! The food was incredible, watching the staff cook was intriguing, and our service was spot-on! The meat and cheese boards are always perfection, and I’m still dreaming of the beef ragu. Olympia Provisions completely hit all the marks!

Our anniversary dinner here was amazing. The service was impeccable and the food was beyond amazing. My husband and I are major foodies and left gushing for days over the entire experience. Worth every penny spent and we were treated like royalty. We’ll be back again very soon.

We loved this restaurant! We ate here with our son while visiting Portland OR. The charcuterie was amazing. We loved the French charcuterie board with the pate'. We ordered a number of small plates (octopus, burrata cheese, eggplant la plancha) and the chicken thighs & polenta entree--everything was excellent. We devoured the fresh -made foccacia bread--it was better than what we've eaten in Italy. Our server, Kim was excellent and very knowledgable about the wine offerings, which included a wide range of international and domestic wines. We will definitely be back when we visit our son in February.

I highly recommend it for everyone.
