While the food & cocktails were excellent the service was odd at best. Long lags in service and food delivery. The server seemed put out by the fact we were there to take our time and order several courses. After our second drink the manager (I think) walked over and took the drink list off our table, seeming to say “no more for you”. This was before our entrees were delivered and another drink was never offered. We were visiting Portland for the first time and this was our final dinner here. We chose it based on the reviews and menu but we found the overall experience was strange for such a great atmosphere and quality of food. The service definitely made us regret our decision for our last meal after such a great overall experience at every other establishment we visited.
Love the salamis and the mortadella. Great place for a date at the bar, and watching the chefs create their charcuterie plates. So happy to have had the chance to have dinner here.
The charcuterie boards are amazing here. Wonderful time just sitting and enjoying the cheese and meats.
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner - all the food was solid and when I asked my waitperson if there was one item on the menu I NEED to try, she suggested one that was awesome.
I live in Texas but will be back next time I'm in Portland.
Already loved their cured meats, so dinner there was a treat. Six of us tried a variety of small plates and charcuterie boards. Everything was very good, and the waitress was helpful and attentive.
We chose to come to OP Southeast location for their special Portland Dining Month menu, and have a great time. The food is tasty and I especially like their cured meats selection. I will definitely visit this location again.
This felt more like a hipster restaurant. My friends ordered for dining month and I ordered scallops on the small plate menu. I was in shock as it was that for $15 there were three scallops and a garnish on my plate. My friend's got the mixed greens to start which was literally mixed greens barely dressed... No nuts, no cheese... No pepper nothing. They were completely unimpressed with their food from start to finish and she told me she couldn't believe she just spent $86 for two drinks they didn't like and salad she didn't even want to eat.
Located in a bustling industrial area, within walking distance to the Portland night market, Olympia Provisions is totally unassuming. You walk through a huge industrial door to be greeted by steps that lead up to a beautiful red door, and then you see the MEAT. The staff is super welcoming and friendly, happy to make recommendations based on your selections. The quality of the food and wine is outstanding and the ambiance is everything, tons of greenery in a super industrial space.
We drove around the block, it took us a little to locate the restaurant. The food was good in general: Flapjack Benedict was great, but the chef’s board we got was not enticing, especially for the price. The opportunity to taste the cold cuts was what brought me there, and I was disappointed with our order. The overall experience was quintessentially Portland.
I went to Olympia Provisions for Portland Dining month. The food was great! The peanut butter parfait dessert was out of this world! They were willing to make substitutions, if necessary, for my being gluten intolerant. It wasn't necessary,
Funky spot in a quasi industrialized area. No decorating frills, great bar, service and menu. We had several folks who ordered a variety. Everything was delicious. The local neighbors have a gem.
Staff was incredible. Treated like regulars. Handled our group of 8 like pros. Portland dining month menu was good but a little underwhelming. The wine pairings were the definite hit of the night.
OP never fails to deliver. We had a terrific, well crafted meal that delivered from start to finish.
The meat boards always amaze me and usually that combined with a salad, side and entree can be a feast for two.
OP SE intimate and even the counter seating feels like a very personal experience. This is one of my favorite places in all of Portland.
Delicious food, gracious and friendly service. Great lunch and brunch spot!
The drive to the destination had me concerned and confused - thanks to the graffiti everywhere. However. Once inside - tremendous. The atmosphere was chill, the food was excellent and the experience was surprisingly wonderful. We will definitely be headed back.
Our group of 4 thought the special $33 March Restaurant Month menus were an outstanding deal. Lovely salads, a great choucroute garni and an unusual and delicious dish of roasted chicken thighs with chickpeas. The lemon pudding cake was sharp and perfect! The 3 wine matches at $22 were quite-good-not-great, but the pours were very generous, so overall a good value. This matched up with previous experiences at the sister Olympia Provisions in NW Portland - really good food! Service was a little rough and ready - busy and occasionally distracted, but good-hearted and professional. For 4 seniors, the worst news was the sound level - too loud for comfortable conversation. All those young folks will be deafer than we are by the time they are our age if they spend much time there!
We have been wanting to eat here for years and are now mad at ourselves for not going sooner. The starters were amazing, the entrees were amazing, the service was amazing. We will absolutely be eating here on a regular basis now. The chef's choice charcuterie board was something I could literally eat every day and not get tired of. The meats were perfect and even though I'm not a big pickled veggie person, my husband is and convinced me to try some of the pickled items on the board. I loved them. I've never eaten more than a bite of pickled veggies before and I was sneaking these ones away from my husbands side of the board so I could have them. The servers were attentive and everyone we came in contact with just seemed so happy to be working, so it made the atmosphere that much more pleasant. There are so many things on their menu that we didn't try, that we are looking forward to trying in future visits.
Celebrating Portland's March Dine Out month. Great food and service!
The food here is absolutely marvelous. And it’s a very interesting space.
Our evening at Olympia Provisions SE was just great. We went for Portland Dining Month and got the fixed menu, along with the wine pairing for an extra $22. It was wonderful! The radicchio salad was crisp with a wonderful dressing with a horseradish (maybe?) kick. It was good enough to want to replicate it at home. The choucroute garni was exceptional, and the lemon pudding cake delicious, even to a non-dessert fan. The wine pairings were generous and of good quality. The vibe was just fun, casual and all about the food. Would highly recommend - there were families, couples, older folk - everyone just enjoying the great food and comfy vibe.
It was great!
I love Olympia Provisions! I made a reservations for 6 guests for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. They sat us near the front, which felt like a private area. We had a friend who had a hard time making a decision on what to order. The staff was very patient with us. They were quick to serve a group our size. The food was phenomenal. We went during Portland Dining Month, so got a good deal on a three course meal. My boyfriend and I ordered one of the Portland Dining Month specials and another large entree. I felt like we got a good variety. And even surprised my boyfriend with a candle on his dessert. The SE location and the NW location are some of my favorite restaurants in Portland.
Outstanding for brunch on the weekend. I highly recommend the bloody Mary’s
My boyfriend and I went for our 4 year anniversary, the ambience was romantic and laid back. We opted for chef’s choice for meat and cheese boards and got the steak tartare along with a bottle of wine. Everything was amazing, would go back again.
Dinner was extremely interactive and the food was amazing. Very unique experience, staff=awesome!
We completely love this place! I cannot expression wonderful it is in it’s intimate kind of loft feel with a European Mediterranean flair. Simple but amazing food. And the service is wonderful and friendly. If you haven’t tried their focaccia bread, you haven’t lived!
We found Olympia Provisioners to be very nice. They have a nice wine list, a great list of small plates as well as large plate offerings. I would recommend this place for most any occasion.
My fiancé loves charcuterie, so when we decided to visit Portland I knew this was the place to go. We loved everything! The charcuterie and cheese boards were delicious, the grilled octopus was surprisingly tender, and the drinks were flavorful and aromatic. We even plan to go back to buy some cured meats to take back home! I would definitely recommend eating here.
It was an after concert meal. We weren’t very hungry so we shared the sausage, sauerkraut potato dish. Portion wise it’s good for 4. We had a chocolate cake and lemon popsicle dessert that were terrific. I would certainly go with an empty stomach next time. Even though our check was small we had excellent service.
Olympia Provisions Southeast has long been one of our favorites. The food is exceptional in the quality of ingredients and the expertise of preparation. Of course the cured and fresh meats are legendary, but Olympia does a fantastic job with non-meat options, too. Cocktails are creative, including whatever the mixologist has experimented with that day; the wine list is fun and a nice diversion from ubiquitous pinot noir; and wine suggestions are excellent. Service is attentive and helpful; I was hosting visiting relatives from Seattle and the staff was able to accommodate an unexpected addition to our reservation with no hassle. In my view, there is nothing to dislike about Olympia Provisions Southeast.
Amazing food. Husband and I don't generally dine out for Valentine's Day-usually turns into a s!#$ show. This experience was all positive!!! Excellent food (best duck and lamb we've ever eaten)
Valentines dinner was excellent. Some of the best
The service was very good. The food was very good. Brian , the server
Great service and food! Can’t wait to go back. I loved their cheese and meat board and the steak tartare was delicious.
Excellent selection of fresh meats. Chef's choice charcuterie was amazing! Pork pistachio pate was delicious. Along with pickled beets, pickled butternut squash and celery. Mixed chicories salad was very good. Cassoulet dinner dish included lamb that was very tender. Roasted chicken thighs, with raddichio, aged balsamic and baked gruyere really made for a tasty plate. Chocolate stout cake was a delicious ending!
Great food, amazing service, fantastic everything
Great place, delicious food!
The food was fantastic and service was amazing. However, it isn't a family friendly place. I was with my two kids. The restaurant doesn't have a kid's menu or unwilling to make kid-friendly food. I had to order their regular menu without any adult ingredient. Without a kid, this place is a must-go restaurant if you are in Portland. Try their Spanish board.
Absolutely phenomenal meal! We did the New Years menu 6 course degustación, which beautifully balanced a variety of complex flavours and textures. The atmosphere was cozy and funky, and the quality of service was truly out of this world. Overall, the best dining experience we’ve had in Portland!
Always a terrific meal at Olympia Provisions. Food is always tasty and servers are friendly. It is friendly for both meat-eaters and vegetarians. We love the charcuterie plates the best because they have so much variety.
