Tucked into one of Portland’s beautifully restored industrial buildings, Olympia Provisions Southeast has grown from the city’s first USDA salumeria to being a destination for refined, European-style dishes.

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!

This place was wonderful! We went for brunch and had a nice table, good service, outstanding food, and a great time! I would definitely go back. Best meal I had in Portland on this trip.

Probably one of the most accommodating places I have been to in a while. Our reservations got messed up online and despite that, they found us a table and sat us fairly quickly. The service it self was superb, the servers were knowledgeable and on top of any question we asked. The food it self was superb, we each had something different, I highly recommend the Benedict or the Pork rib Sandwich.

The portion sizes were small for their prices but that's tapas for you. The sea bass dish was misleading because there were only a few small pieces of sea bass in the seafood stew. Great ambiance and service.

The overall excellent evening of food and drink was spoiled by the rudeness of the waitress and host in their handling of a customer. Instead of politely asking an elderly man to reposition his chair to clear a passageway, they were abrupt and rude. I suspect they treat other elderly customers the same. A little retraining is clearly in order.

Our waitress (so sorry I forgot her name) was absolutely wonderful. We never waited long for anything! The food was prepared fresh and it shows, absolutely delicious on all counts. The drinks were also on point. The “car meet” that takes place in the same neighborhood on the weekends can make it difficult to get around and park, but it’s well worth braving the sea of D-bags and dudebros to finally reach this Most wonderful place; carnivore nirvana, the Palace of all things pickled, the Shangri-La of charcuterie. There are better things than gold at the end of the rainbow when that rainbow is made of bacon.

Unusual and delicious! I had the French Charcuterie Board and loved it. My French cider went perfectly with it and my Olive Oil Polenta cake dessert was amazing! What a fun experience dining with Olympia Provisions was and I hope to repeat it one day.

Food quality was excellent, eggs benedict with trout and sausage biscuit and gravy and side of sweet seasoned sausage that was unusual and flavorful. Even the drinks (iced tea and hot tea) were a step above in flavor which surprised us. A busy Sunday yet the service was handled aptly by 2 staff teaming up to address our concerns and needs. DEFINITE recommendation for all to enjoy.

We celebrated our anniversary at Olympia provisions and could not have picked a better place to do so. This is without a doubt the best place to go if you're a meat lover, feel comfortable in rustic urban spaces and enjoy an environment that spawns conversation table the table. I'm not sure why it took so long for us to finally go to this restaurant but I can assure you we will be back again very soon. We did a smattering of charcuterie, tartar and boards along with nice wine and cocktails. Well done!

Overall its fine, not my style however. We were a 9 person group and they really aren’t set up for large groups. The kitchen was slow getting our entrees out which may have been due to our size of group. The menu is limited and obviously oriented to meat lovers...if you’re a vegetarian, move on. Overall the Food was pretty good, But I thought a little overpriced. The service was really good overall. I don’t think we will return, just my opinion.

Excellent food choices from a good choice of appetizers & small salads (we had the Caracara Orange dish), "small" dishes like the Mussels that were generous, to the very tasty Chicken Thighs as a main entree. Shared the semifreddo dessert -- another winner. The staff is very friendly and helpful and represents good value.

It was great food and a nice, rustic atmosphere. I surprised my son for his birthday, but the waitress didn’t seem very interested in us. It was busy, but her disinterest did make the event a little less than what I would have liked.

We arrived on time and there are plenty empty tables they asked us to wait so they can set up another as if we didn’t make the reservation. Once ordered, we waited for over 30 minutes for our food and still nothing. We double checked with the host and he said they are dishing them up. They weren’t. My appetizer finally came (not even the first course salad, no that took another 20 mins) my husband asked to cancel his order since it’s been so long. The waitress came and gave us attitude as if Portland dinning month is our fault. Mind you I am not 20 or 30 somethings whose new to the Portland dinning theme. I know Portland wait staffs are rude and always act like you are bothering them. This lady is on the top list. She gave us crazy eyes, and asked “what do you want me to do with the rest of your meal then?!?!” I was taken back and still let her know I would still like the rest of my meal just because my husband doesn’t want his meal doesn’t mean I am not still hungry. Truth to be told, I think she forgot to send our orders in because others who came and ordered later got food before us. That’s all fine, a little apology would have been fine. My husband still got his meal despite of his request. The food is good but we will not return for the service ever again.

Overall, I enjoyed Olympia Provisions SE, mostly because the food was awesome. However, the service was severely lacking. When walking in to the restaurant it took a good 5 minutes of us standing awkwardly waiting for someone to even come say hello. Then we were sat in the middle of a bustling restaurant and asked to be moved to the outer side. When placing our order, the waitress didn't write anything down, and wasn't exactly very friendly. She ended up forgetting my cocktail order, and screwed up the dessert order. Again, not being very friendly the entire time. The food was good, and would go back for their charcuterie plates. The wine was ok, and their cocktails are tiny for the price.
