The Hairy LobsterThe Hairy Lobster

Contemporary American | Pearl District, Portland

I tried two new dishes on the menu and both were exceptional. The problem I have now when going to The Hairy Lobster is that if there are not new items on them menu too try I have difficulty choosing what to eat because everything is so delicious. I don't know how chef David Root does it, but very dish is always spot on. More

Gallo NeroGallo Nero

$$$$
Italian | Pearl District, Portland

We had not been to Gallo Nero in some time and were pleased it was as good as we had remembered. The food, wine, and service were excellent, and the only problem we had were noisy “neighbors”. A man on the table next to us was speaking in a volume that probably could be heard two blocks away, and a larger group were very noisy while having drinks, but quietened down once they started eating. However, the quality we were receiving more than compensated for these distractions. The wait staff were efficient and knowledgeable, and our guy (the receipt said RCS) was quick to point out that the superb Verdure Forno were more than adequate for two people – and we do not know how anyone could not like vegetables after tasting these. He also said the wine I had chosen (it had to be a Chianti Classico in a restaurant called Gallo Nero!) was a one-year newer vintage than shown on the list before showing or opening the bottle – too many restaurants, even in such a wine-loving city, ignore such things. As we are not big eaters, we had just one course and my wife loved her Gnocchi with lox and peas and I loved my Filetta alla Chiantigiana – go with the chef’s recommended medium-rare. Finishing the meal with an espresso and an excellent Grappa rounded things off beautifully. Overall, the quality was very high, portions more than adequate, and pricing moderate by Portland standards. Even if the food was not as good as it was, I’d be back because of the excellent selection of Italian wines available by the glass and bottle. More

We were both looking forward to a place with a great burger and a nice cold micro brew to enjoy during our stay. The Von Ebert Brewing did not disappoint! Our server was knowledgeable about the different beers available and he answered all our questions with a great attitude. This was a great experience and the creme brulee topped with Captain Crunch made our night. We will be back. More

Six of us met for a monthly dinner and chose this restaurant as it was Cinco de Mayo. We were seated promptly, served well and everyone enjoyed the different entrees. We were there at 5 pm on a Monday so the noise level was low. The flavors and ingredients were innovative and delicious. We will definitely go back. More

My moussaka was excellent, way too big to consume in one meal. It made an excellent side dish for my dinner the next night. The Greek salad and the spanakopita were also delicious. All in all, it was a great meal, and Eleni is very entertaining. 😊 More

Great time sitting outside on Mother’s Day. The food was great. Service great too. They did add something on to our bill that we did not order, but they effectively voided it and gave us a correct tab. The Blazer game was on, it wasn’t too loud, and we enjoyed great conversation. And, the Blazers won!! I am ready to go back anytime. More

Girls night tasting wine! We had a great space in the lounge area to feel privacy, and the service was amazing! Wednesday night staff is my favorite and I never want anyone else! The only criticism is that it is set up for summer, not a cozy winter or chilly evening spot. At least not tonight. I am sure they add a different ambience for cooler evenings. See you next time!
