Understaffed for the most part. The no gratuity policy was evident in the lack of quality in the service. Way too long to get served. Usually in a restaurant like this the waiter explains the dishes to you. They just didn't have time because they were stretched too thin. The menu was pretty overwhelming so we needed some attention on this.
The salads were the best part of the meal. Everything else just so-so.
Service was amazing and the food was delicious.
We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. Exceptional food and service, with creative and delicious wine pairings. Couldn't have been happier with the whole experience.
Food was great and nicely plated. Just feel the portions were small for the price.
This was my second visit and did not disappoint! We had 7 small plates and each was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff are very knowledgeable about each ingredient. I’ll be back
For all the hype it was just ok. We did the chefs tasting menu. Some dishes were real hits but were scattered in with some mediocre dishes. Great value and a lively night but was expecting more from the food.
Service was very poor. Plates were very small. Left the restaurant very hungry. Will not ever be back.
These chefs have a justified reputation for flavor balance. On this night we had the Kiyokawa pears with curried lentils, endive, pistachio, yogurt, and papadum. Those items in combination were subtle, delightful, and carefully rendered.
We also had a pasta dish, and the toothsome, hand-cut noodles were a standout of the most simple ingredients handled with masterful skill.
We also drank quite number of different cocktails, and I would say that the bartender does an equally lovely job of flavor balance, and of supporting the food.
We ordered the chef's supper, all the dishes were fantastic. The salmon was particularly amazing, the best prepared I've ever had (I've spent most of my life on the west coast so I've had a ton of salmon). We'll be back soon for more salmon & to try the chocolate tart.
The food was a little too mixed up and the chef seemed to try too many flavors at once. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t excellent.
Great place. Good cocktails, friendly staff, fairly quiet atmosphere. Tapas always good for sharing. Prices on the high side, but worth it.
Special thanks to the wait staff at Park Kitchen for their kindnesses to us and my 97 year old mom. When they called to confirm the reservation, they commented on my notes about mom's age, etc., and asked if she had a walker. When I replied that she did, indeed, have a walker, they were very encouraging for mom to use it and they would tuck her walker in the office during our meal. All of the staff were very attentive and kind. Thank you so much!
We went to Park Kitchen for Portland Dining month and loved our courses. The salmon is a must and the salads are excellent as well. Very good drinks. We got the rosemary soda aside from a cocktail and that was fantastic. We will be back.
we had a few small plates they were excellent - i recommend the brussel sprouts
This was my first visit to Park Kitchen. My friend and I came for the Portland Dining Month 3-course meal. The food was very tasty with lots of creative culinary highlights.
Everything was just ok. Nothing was bad and nothing was great.
Good food, though serving boquerones on a stone slab is a little too pretentious.
A fun place. We went during Portland Dining Month and will go back soon. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Great food.
This is an excellent restaurant. The food, cocktails and service are all outstanding. And I particularly like the no tipping policy despite the higher prices to compensate. Great place to go.
Lots of different, creative small plates. Always enjoy this restaurant.
So good! Highly recommend! We went for dining month and will definitely be back!
If you love your vegetables, this is probably the place for you. As a meat eater, the choices and portion sizes were small.
Well prepared and quite creative dishes, all of them small plates. Outstanding and timely service. Very comfortable. Competitive with all the other small plate servers in town. Gratuity is included in the price.
Worth a visit.
Had Portland dining month menu plus dessert. Delicious. And an easy walk to Portland Center Stage.
Very consistent and creative as we have come to expect!! Our out of town guests enjoyed it.
Park Kitchen truly represents everything that FLOSS (fresh local organic seasonal sustainable) stands for. On top of that they have great atmosphere, serve tasty food and mix vivacious cocktails. Will comeback and bring friends.
Good cocktails, interesting food. Have been here on several occasions. This time disappointed, service was lack luster. Had to wait a long time to even order cocktails and we both ordered the March dining out menu and it was served way too quickly. Restaurant didn't appear busy but felt very rushed. Food was just mediocre. Will go back another time, but left feeling ho hum, will wait awhile to return.
I would love to eat here everyday but this is a place for all occasions.
Our favorite restaurant for a special birthday dinner. The food combinations are so unique, but so tasty. good selection of new and tried and tested menu items. The wine pairings are spot on. And the staff and chef David make you feel like family.
The food is consistently excellent. If you come here 4 or so times a year the staff knows you and most importantly they are here on your next visit. Staff turn over is very low which tells you a lot about a restaurant. You also know where the food is coming from because you see David Sapp at the Portland Farmers Market buying food for the restaurant.
Park Kitchen is one of the very top restaurants in PDX and should always be listed as such. Food and service were excellent again. Every dish has some interesting twist - I usually just go for the Chef's Choice tasting menu and they don't disappoint.
Scott Dolich chef/owner rocks!
Not enough people know how quietly influential he has been
on the Portland Restaurant scene for many years.
And he is still putting it out there...we did the tasting menu
which was a tour d force without ever being extravagant
or over reaching. In fact its so comfortable, you feel like
you could eat at Park Kitchen several times a week!
Great open table fare. The food was made from high quality, in season ingredients with a well thought out menu. All of the items paired well with each other, texture was on-point with pungent flavors that accompanied a well lit ambience. Recommend to anyone for a great dinner.
Park Kitchen is a light and stylish alternative to the heavier fare that seems to be de rigeur for Portland fine dining. The vegetables were the star of our six course tasting menu, featuring a brilliant beet and goat cheese salad, charred brussels sprouts in a horseradish cream, and a simple watermelon radish salad. The menu was rounded out with their always-on-the-menu chickpea fries, a cornmeal pasta covered in spicy pork, and a perfectly cooked sirloin with a kale-cheese sauce.
The service is... different. Not bad by any stretch, just different. Park Kitchen has adopted a 'one-house' model for service - no tipping allowed - and it shows in more than just the employees' paychecks. There was clearly a 'waiter' in charge, but service responsibilities were shared by the bartender and kitchen employees depending on who was available. Park Kitchen is small enough to make this work.
My husband and I enjoyed our Valentines Day dinner here. Shayla was our server! She made the night even more fun. She was incredibly attentive, well-informed and so fun. We really enjoyed her. The meal was good. Definitely some delicious options throughout the 8 courses. I do not eat oysters, so you might consider another option next time when offering shellfish to those who don't eat it. The portions were on the small side, which is great. However, the cost ($120 per person) seemed rather high considering the smaller portions. We like smaller portions but not at that cost. We recognize that the since you are following the gratuity-free system, the cost of a tip was embedded in the price. However, we're not fans of this system as we enjoy tipping really well for great service -- such as we received with Shayla. Overall, we had a great night and enjoyed the food and especially the service. We were just taken aback by the cost of the meal in total -- minus our hefty beverage bill of course! Thanks.
Valentine's day $125 prix fixe menu was astounding. Full spectrum of flavor, mood and texture without being too weird. Absolutely worth the price of admission. My date surprised me by not being a beef eater! The fine folks at Park kitchen unflinchingly did not charge us for her meal. She ate only the vegetables and was as satisfied with the experience as I was. I wanted to leave a compensatory tip, but this place pays its employees fair wages and it shows. Bravo Park Kitchen. Thank you for a special evening.
The service was friendly but not obsequious. The food exceptional. I really wanted to give a nice tip at the end, but this is a no tipping establishment. Definitely plan on going back.
It was ok but everything was mediocre ... service, food and ambience. Not going back ...
Another wonderful tasting experience. Great fool, wonderful pacing, and an overall exceptional evening.
I've only been to Portland a few times and I've managed to make it to Park Kitchen every visit. I really like the approach to the food and the drinks and wine list. We had a great meal once again and I look forward to visiting again in the future.
