Loved 3 Doors Down! Our wait person, Steph was personable and knowledgeable. I had flank steak with potatoes and veggies. Yummy! My husband had the special which was pasta, smoked tomatoes, asparagus and some other veggies. We shared the bibb lettuce salad which was tasty and enough to split. We shared a chocolate torte with bourban sauce. OMG! Rich and decadent! Prices were good, ambiance nice. You won't be disappointed. Online, it says that you can only make reservations if you have 6 or more, but open table let's you make reservations for 2. More

We had a great time and the food was wonderful. However, we were seated by the windows and close to the door and we were all very chilly the whole dinner. This made it a bit difficult to enjoy more. I had to put my coat over my lap before our entrée course as I couldn't keep warm. More

Ramen | SE Portland, Portland

While a bit pricey for ramen, I don't regret coming here. They really take ramen to the next level, in addition to offering plenty of other Japanese dishes, and great sushi/sashimi/nigiri. Their sake list is extensive, as well. It can get pretty packed, so be prepared for a wait, especially if you have a larger group. While this isn't the sort of spot I'd hit up regularly, it's certainly worth it if you're looking for top quality, authentic Japanese ramen. More

We had an OT reservation but evidently they didn’t hear us mention that when we checked in. Our table was situated right next to the restroom, so that put a jinx on ambience. Food was delicious. Chicken was hot n juicy. Vegetarian platters were excellent too. Great service - extra pita! Reasonably priced for a great spot on Division St. More
