As a former restaurant owner, it is great to see a place we have enjoyed for so many years continue to innovate and "keep up with the times" without changing the things we love. You guys have added to the experience with pleasant waiters, a nice new GM, and a bigger menu and it is noticeable. Loving the newest touches, glad you kept the Lewis and Clark on the cocktail list too :)
Still in love with this space, all these years later. Absolutely magical experience. The food, the cocktails, the people. Big love for Rustin, our server! Made the night extra "North west".
Thank you 23H for making my birthday special :) -Sarah O
A nice night with the family at 23Hoyt. THank you for providing a good time for both the kids and my elderly mother/father. Friendly waiters and good food. A little something for everyone here.
Had to come back after the GREAT service we received for burger week. Honestly, the regular dinner menu looked very appealing from the window, but we were only there for a burger. This time around, I brought some business/work friends and each of us (4) were very impressed. Initially, we sat for Happy Hour and ordered a few items, spiced nuts, a few caesars, deviled eggs, and spicy mac. All of which very good. The caesar is interesting, whole leaf romaine hearts that you can pick up and crunch down on, fully dressed with parm and crutons. Very fresh and stood out to me.
A few steaks and a duck entree for the table, all temps checked out and the duck (mine) was particularly good. The roasted apple and carrot on top of farro is out of this world. Slightly tart, perfect "fatty" salt levels, farro is a great vehicle, less boring than wild rice or something.
No dessert this time around but only because we needed to skidattle! Seems there is a lot to experience here. We ordered a few bottles of Pinot, which I remember as being good but looking at what esle they offer, I would say I need to keep heading back for more.
I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at 23Hoyt. The hostess Ashley was excellent as was the entire wait staff. The yellow squash appetizer was a 1st time for me and I’ll definitely have it again. The hangar steak was cooked perfectly as well.
This was our 3rd time visiting 23rd and Hoyt. The tomato bruschetta was clunky and hard to eat with huge chunks of cucumber and tomatoes falling off the bread. The shrimp and grits were under seasoned and the mushroom pasta was undercooked and not very flavorful. Our server did not even offer us dessert and just dropped the check. Nothing was overly terrible but you expect more if you paying a lot for the food and experience. Our first time was fantastic but it has gone down hill since then. We won't be back, there are too many other places that are AMAZING!
Super cool location and vibe. Server was amazing and food came out quickly. Several dishes were not available and portions were average. Prices were on the high side. Overall we had a nice experience. Probably wouldn’t be someplace we go to regularly.
It's a more upscale restaurant. I had the salmon and it was a bit dry. The short ribs were excellent. Th bread is great. The kale side was some of the best kale ever. The gumbo was a good size and I was presently surprised. They even gave a good amount of shrimp. It's a good place fora date or business meeting. Very nice ambience.
Ive never really known about this place but stopped in yesterday for a little snack after hearing the smooth jams outside :) At first we thought it would be a little pricey btu looking at the menu, happy hour was going on and we got a good deal. For me, the spicy mac, our caesar, and that gigantic corn dog were easily good and plentiful--the wings were a little sweet but also good. I like that they brought out a warm napkin for hands too because you know it was all over the place. Very big wing too. I was actually surprized they had them on happyhour because they were so big. Had a good time, will try them again for dinner soon.
Visited 23Hoyt over the weekend and the service is still stellar, food is getting better by the week, and it seems they are really settling into their new menu! Patio was packed so we waited, then eventually sat on the 23rd side. Ordered their new smoked wings and some other items. Gotta mention those wings. Sweet and savory, gigantic an on the bone. Thanks again!
Nice people, quick with the drinks, really tasty salmon and a lot to choose from. Love that they are playing the US open on TV in their lounge too. No one does that! Very fun an interactive place to be. Will be back!
This was our 3rd time there and past 2 were not impressive. Apps were good and timely (bruschetta and ceased salad). Main meal was delivered 1.25 hours after sitting and was just okay. Ordered mushroom fettuccine and it was a smaller portion of fettuccine with about 6 pieces of mushroom, barbecue cauliflower was basic and kale was tough. Waiter was unapologetic about long wait for main course - did not visit table and ignored eye contact while we waited. Dining room was not busy so we are unsure why there was such a long wait.
Hello Anonymous, 3 visits. Thank you! It would be helpful to know who your server was, a description. When you visited, there was a large wedding reception in the mezzanine. It was a very busy night for the kitchen. It sounds like your table's timing may have been affected by the evening's event. I am sorry this was your experience. I will look into the vegetarian entree you describe here. It has been received well in the recent past. Please respond. I believe we can make this right for you. Thx
Was disappointed that there are TV’s in the primary dining area. For the price point we were certainly expecting more. Do not recommend. Too many other options in the neighborhood.
Hello Pdxoriginal, If you were sat in view of the televisions at the bar, you were actually in the bar area. We do seat the entire restaurant for dinner and given the openness of the space, I can see why you perceived where you were sitting as the primary dining area. There are 3 other places to sit away from the bar. We will gladly seat you where you prefer. We regret your experience did not meet expectation. We hope you will give us another try in the future. Thank you.
My wife Caroll and I have enjoyed 23Hoyt for many years and will continue to do so. Sharp attention to guests, they even brought a round of champagne for our anniversary this afternoon without us ordering it. If you end up in the neighborhood, give them a shot.
Great cheese, wine, and steak!
Food was really good. We ordered a steak and the spatzle. They had great drinks and cocktails as well. The one problem was the service. It was terribly slow and our waiter never refilled our water nor came for our bill or cleared our plates. The hostess saw us and helped clear the table and then got us the bill after we had to ask. On addition we came for happy hour yet the waiter didn't apply happy hour prices to our drinks. So...I wish I could give it better marks because the food was great. Service was just terrible. At least the hostess was gracious and conscientious.
Hey there Erik! We thank you for your review and hope that your next trip to see us is one which reflects our quality the entire way through. We can assure you that the server issue is being looked into and certainly will be remedied. Hope to see you soon!
Made a 10pm reservation for a friends birthday party. We showed up and they told us the kitchen has closed and they would not seat us. Huge let down and very unprofessional.
Hi Anonymous! I am so sorry this happened. I will look into this and get back to you privately. Thank you.
visited many times. this time green salad was excellent, hanger steak with fingerling potatoes was great, scallop risotto was mixed - scallops were good but risotto was not fully cooked.
We stopped in early on a hot day and they were accommodating for an early dinner arrival and put us at our table for almost an hour before our reservation where we had drinks and some warm olives. Our dinner was excellent. I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly and my wife had the rack of lamp with four outstanding chops. We finished off with a divine flour-less chocolate cake and coffee. Service is as good as it gets.
My wife and I missed out on 23 Hoyt's burger week, but were able to try their "build" thanks to our kind waitress who guided us to their main menu. We ordered a Lewis and Clark Cocktail and a glass of their house Pinot Grigio, both satisfying recommendations. When the burgers came out they were cooked at a perfect medium, fries were crispy and hot. It was busy here but we never felt ignored. We enjoyed our time.
Came back after a trip here last week for Burger week, which is what this review is actually about. We just walked in that day so I didn't get a chance to say thank you on the world wide web! I get there with a pretty big group, it's totally slammed. Host is running around like a crazy person but they get to us in good time. She was very nice and we had a laugh about the busy day ahead. We sat, ordered, received our burgers in like LITERALLY 4 minutes. It was an assmbly line! The whole place was packed so we didn't get a whole lot of extra time with our server but honestly we saw that every moment he DID have, he was checking in. Very very packed in there. Burgers were scrumptious, beer was flowing, and we enjoyed our real estate while we had it. The line was out the door and around the corner and the people next to us were verrrrry rude about the "wait for a table" so we scolded them and left. Lol! Don't mess with our fav place! Thank you to Rustin for doing a great job with our table and having angelic patience with theirs haha
Pretty bad service + Raw meat + Recycle food from a different table, so sad this was or the first time in this place but never returning
Hello CarolinaH! Thanks for your review. Rare or raw? You visited us during Burger Week which was overwhelming for the restaurant and did, in fact, not have us at our best in controlling the customer experience. We apologize you were affected. I am not sure what your are referring to about "Recycled food" please let us know. We can assure you that you are mistaken as to what you think you saw. It may be that food was mistakenly placed on the wrong customer's table and removed. Recycled?! Nope.
We got a good table on a busy night. Service was initially good then waited way too long to place the order and when it came (burgers) they were way undercooked. So not a good experience. Generally we expect better from 23 Hoyt!
Celebrate birthday before Timber game. Took forever to order and get food. Drinks very slow and out of everything we wanted at bar.
With all the fabulous selections of restaurants in PDX I doubt if I will dine at 23 Hoyt again.
The line was out the door and we waited to let them know we had a reservation. We waited for a moment as we were told they were running a bit behind on reservations. Not a big deal, then a different hostess came up and picked the name off the walk in list (the couple just came in) and sat them in front of us. The staff had no real handle on the situation. Once we were seated it took 4 minutes to even get a menu and be greeted. They took our order and we got apps and mains. They brought all the food at the same time.
The brushetta was burned and so wet the bread was falling apart. The onion rings were very good and burger was ok. In total we were seated and at our table for an hour and ten minutes. We saw our waiter a total of 3 times. Once to get our food. Once to deliver it. Once to get our check. Overall, a terrible experience.
There was some burger event going on and even though my team had a reservation, staff was extremely stretched out. Only half of the table was asked if they wanted drinks re-filled. One member in our party had to wait 1 full hour for a drink. Pasta was overcooked. Service was extremely slow.
I have been to 23Hoyt three times now. The first time I had a very poor experience and wrote a review. The manager then contacted me to make it better and I was very pleased with my second experience after having such a negative one.
On Thursday I went to 23Hoyt again (after having such a great experience the second time) and it has confirmed that I do not think this restaurant is impressive and worth going to.
First, apparently it was happy hour and we were never informed. Every other table had another menu, but we did not think anything of it until we asked another table what other menu they had. Had we known it was happy hour, it would have changed our whole order. Then, I have a lot of food allergies and tried to discuss these with the waiter. He was not educated on allergens at all (which is fine! I do not expect the waiters to know ingredients) but was not inclined to ask the kitchen about it. He gave a lot of attitude to both my friend and me about having to do the extra work of asking the kitchen. Then, we ordered our burgers for burger week and fries. The fries never came, and we asked two different employees to see if they would come. The employees ensured us they were coming, and they did not. Finally, we watched three different tables who had arrived after us get their meals, checks and leave before we were able to get a check. We asked three different employees for our check before we finally received it to pay and leave. Overall, it was apparent the waitstaff were not educated, timely or interested in helping some customers.
The service of our waiter was admirable given he was having to be all over the place as it seemed like the restaurant was understaffed. But discounted meals after having waited far to long for deliver of food paired with the bland taste once the main courses arrived didn’t make up for the poor experience.
Good Morning LonnyN, We apologize for not meeting expectations at your last visit. We are part of Burger Week and the volume of guests we are getting daily are definitely affecting our services. We hope you will give us another try during a normal week where we are not being featured for such a popular item. I guarantee you will have a smoother experience.
We dined at 23 Hoyt on a Monday night which was $5 burger night. There did not seem to be enough wait staff or even a host to handle the clients. While our waiter was very apologetic, it did not make up for the extremely slow kitchen. We waited over 75 minutes for our food. Some of us ordered burgers and others ordered off of the regular menu. When the food eventually arrived, it was pretty good, but most of us would have eaten anything at 9 pm.
Angela, We are part of Burger Week and the volume of guests we are getting daily are affecting our services. We apologize for your unsatisfactory experience. We hope you will give us another try in the future.
Went during burger week so any other time of year it may be different. Took 15 minutes just to talk to someone to tell them I had a reservation. They were definitely under staffed and we really tried to have some grace. Poor planning on the management part. My wife’s burger was well, really well (nearly burnt) done. Mine was way too rare. I like rare but this was unsafe. Waiter took one look and was like, “wow that’s rare, let me take that back.” Next burger was the same and I knew that they were having a rough time so I just said don’t worry about taking it back. They were nice enough, and comped our drinks. We left to go get dinner somewhere else.
ChristopherB, As you wrote, we are part of Burger Week and the volume of guests we are getting daily are affecting our services. We apologize for your unsatisfactory experience. The number of staff we had was appropriate, but the volume of guests pouring in could not be serviced in a reasonable timeframe. It is nice to be insanely busy, but we regret it affects some of our customers like this. We hope you will give us another try in the future. We promise this isn't normal.
Another afternoon at 23 and gotta send some luv.
Cute and curated space in Northwest Portland. Around a lot of shopping and other places. We showed up a little early but they still let us sit down and enjoy some drinks on the patio, then food. Food was good. We love onion rings! Good salads too :)
YUM!!! I really don't usually do "shout outs" online but had to after having the frozen Margarita here. That ALONE is a reason to go. GO NOW!!!!
I loved their new menu! So many tantalizing options. The restaurant looked great. Our server was great. Kudos to all.
Food was gross.
Went to 23Hoyt for the first time to see Drag Brunch, and everything was wonderful! The Queens were amazing, the food was delicious, and our waiter Andrew was amazing! I would recommend this place to others especially for Drag Brunch!
Nice details in this restaurant. Servers are attentive, the plants on each little table are green and alive, the food is good without pretentiousness. Recently 23Hoyt became more "protein rich" as our server suggested, with steaks, chops, and the like. I would agree. We ordered a little of everything, starting with their cheese board--then Zeffero Ceasar Salad and a Simple Salad--then a few rib eyes with fingerling potatoes and a few sides. Everything was good and the steaks came out sizzling on a plate which was fun and dramatic!
Another great brunch! Becoming our weekly ritual. Excited for their Drag Brunch tomorrow also! Thank you 23Hoyt!
The wait staff were good but we got 3 meals together then had to wait 5 minutes for the 4th to come with no apology and had to wait so long for a glass of wine that the food was eaten before it arrived again with no apology. Also the hangar steak was inedible so most of it was left and no one asked why. Not surprised the restaurant was so empty on a Friday night.
Chellemcgregor, Please accept our apology. I will inquire as to who your server was, as well as the timing of food and beverage in general. Your server should have been communicative all along the way as well as making things right when they were not. We hope you will give us another opportunity to impress you and please always inform us if there is something you do not like so we can fix it on the spot. The Friday you dined, there were many events in town and restaurants in general were slower.
