We had the Portland dining month menu so I’m not sure if they adjust the portion size but we both walked away feeling hungry. It could have done with more seasoning. I might try again with the regular menu.
Food was delicious and good portion sizes. Nice selection on menu. Great that you can reserve a spot for brunch.
This was my second trip to 23Hoyt, the first for dinner and the latest for brunch. I made a reservation for 11:30am and our party of four was taken right away. We started with the donut holes, which were heavenly (warm and wonderful with caramel). Three of us had coffee, which was only refilled upon request (actually, vigorously flagging someone down). The restaurant was not busy by any means, but it took an extraordinary amount of time for the food to get to the table. Our waitress was polite to the point that she had to be, but certainly didn't go out of her way (see coffee comment). When our entrees finally arrived, they were hot and delicious, great presentation, and nicely sized portions.
My first experience was a couple of months ago when I met a friend for dinner. The waiter we had that evening provided excellent customer service, was engaging, and frequently checked in with us. The food was excellent.
Wonderful meal...had a reservation...thw booth was awesome....great service and wonderful brunch.....great choices and wonderful mimosas....will plan to rwturn to try dinner!!!!
I loved the music they played for Sunday brunch. It was very upbeat and happy!
First timer - great food, ambiance, and character. Excellent service - overall, we were impressed and would come again. Thank you!
Our waitress was outstanding! We were very pleased with the gluten free options, and the care that the kitchen took in preparing our meal. The food was delicious!
Such a fantastic experience. Food was great! Service was perfect!
Service was far below expectations; server stated she was overwhelmed with too many tables, didn't really take care of us, acted like it really didn't matter and that she couldn't change the situation. She comped us one meal, but we would rather pay for the meal and get great service than get poor service and free food.
There did not seem to be a Mgr. on duty or anyone visiting tables that would have discovered that there was a problem with the service - a big miss on the whole front of house team.
Went with a friend for Portland Dining Month. The menu was superb, service was great, overall a terrific experience.
I like to know what eateries are serving up before I eat out. I like to know what's in the dish? Is it a local farm, fresh, purveyor? Is it organic or using sustainable earth friendly practices? If it is meat, is it raised on a factory farm and if so I say "NO" Thanks! To me, paying a little more for higher quality ... that's inexpensive health insurance that also tastes best! Win win! So what about 23 Hoyt? Don't panic ... it's organic! How do I know? Check this out ...
Well ... on a bunch of Saturday's at the PSU farmers market, I have bumped into chef Lorenzo pulling a wagon and filling it up with organic produce? Lovely! We shop at the same organic farms. First time I bumped into Chef I asked "where you going with that wagon loaded with yummy, hearty and seasonal veggies" ... he said "23/Hoyt!" "Are you the Chef?" "Yes!" OK ... I'm there. I knew we had to go to this restaurant. So here is how our dining experience went.
For dinner we tried: 1) Gnudi which is a rolled up rich tasting dumpling with ricotta, nettle and some hedgehog mushrooms served over fava sprout pesto and sprinkled with heirloom popcorn. 2) Seared Duck Breast served with robuchon mashed potatoes, purple sprouting broccoli and duck jus. Duck source unknown? 3) Fried Chicken (NW free range) crunchy outside and moist inside served with cast iron cornbread, bacon braised and sweetened collards topped with a jalapeño honey glaze. Nice plated presentations! All exceeded our expect-taste-in's! Chef's team knows how to cook up them seasonal, farm fresh veggies with or without meat dishes.
When you step through the front door the mood is inviting. The decor is contemporary, elegant yet simple, candles, interesting plants, lots of windows, open airy space. Our servers picked up the ball and keep us moving at a pleasant pace through our dining experience. All good!
Portland March Restaurant month. Very good and great value!
Food was great. The service experience was very good but slow which is what led to the 3 star rating.
Otherwise, luv 23 Hoyt!
service wa poor. Slow and inattentive staff that seemed uninterested in the restaurant. Food was ok but not up to par for the prices.
Subtle and artistic service; more like a leader on a dining expedition than “service”.
Comforting welcoming ambience with Scandinavian charm: split wood with scent of burning wood; shadows and light with candles.
Waitress was not attentive. The food was definitely average: a charcuterie plate that has prosciutto and spam like meat isn’t very impressive. The cheese plate was just a Brie, let’s say, an expensive Brie. With so many delicious cheeses in the world and only one is served.
Great cocktails and great food. My wife and I went here on a whim and will definitely be returning.
23 Hoyt’s food has really gotten better (in our opinion,) over the last 6 months or so. I used to only get Burgers, now I trust the kitchen for their specials and other items on the menu, which is very welcome.
Wait staff is always attentive. The kitchen was really really backed up on Friday night- but our wait person was great, brought us out some extra items to hold us over and it made the wait ok. In addition, and most important- when our food did arrive, it was prepared with real care- the kitchen might have been backed up, but they clearly made sure every plate went out as it should have. Really appreciated!
Food was amazing and the service by Aaron was excellent!
This was the most awful dining experience I have ever encountered. I have never had a restaurant be as neglectful and rude as I experienced here. Right from the get go we were treated poorly, not receiving water fro over 10 minutes or bread for almost an hour. The waiter never brought our drink order, after checking our ids, saying he never remembered us ordering drinks and by the time the food arrived an hour and a half after we were seated, it was undercooked and cold. The only saving grace of this restaurant was that the manager comped our meal after we had to seek him out to relay how awfully we were being treated - no one ever came to our table to check on us. For what would have been a $200 meal, the service was the worst I’ve ever encountered and the food was subpar. I would not recommend this to anyone and will not be back.
Waiter was over the top great! Great service! We were at the Jay-Z table. Going back as long as
We get the same waiter. 👍
It was very nice and the food was great! Will be coming back to try their happy hour!
My wife and I went for Valentine’s Day. The atmosphere was stylish and dress casual. The highlight of the night was the special Old Fashion, best in Portland! The food was good but the service was slow even though there was a fixed menu. I would go back.
Went to 23hoyt for Valentines. Food was excellent but it took forever to get food. Almost 40 min for first course then over an hour to get second coarse. Don’t know if problem was in kitchen but it seemed to be. Nice enough to comp meal.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day as a family. It was a little slow to get our courses started but once it did, we were not disappointed and my young daughters loved it.
We visited on Valentine’s Day. Not a great dining experience, perhaps not normal for 23hoyt but disappointing for such a special holiday.
Great food. Very Poor service. There are so many great restaurants in Portland that When the service is lacking, I won't return.
Food was very good, we got a cozy quiet table and service by Beau was excellent!
Beautiful resturant, great for a date or a dinner with coworkers after work. I had the butternut squash risotto, which was amazing and my fiance had the duck breast. The Duck breast was cooked perfectly, the only thing that lacked was the brussel sprouts didn't have much flavor. Overall very good food and service, but they need different chairs, the wicker is very uncomfortable.
Decent Brunch spot. Food was good, service was a bit on the casual side. Our table had the Huevos Rancheros, Eggs Benedict and German Pancake. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The Mimosa's are are good and very reasonably priced. $2 a glass or $15 for a carafe
Great service! Each of our dishes were well enjoyed.
Extremely over priced. $30+ for some mashed potatoes and about a 1/4lb of duck breast. The food is good but the portions of the main entrees are WAY too small for the money you pay. I would only go to 23Hoyt for happy hour burgers.
We all had a wonderful time. The food was incredible and the service was amazing. It was a perfect New Years dinner and show
I never got a response to the electronic reply sent concerning the restaurant card you wouldn't accept.
The restaurant was very cold!!
Best bloody Mary’s in town! Love to bring friends here and show off the food and drinks.
23 hoyt offers the perfect blend of atmosphere and well thought out and prepared food. there are very few restaurants where one can order chicken and it be a great decision. this is one of those places. the food is always perfect. the service too. i always enjoy time spent here.
We enjoyed a fantastic meal as usual at 23Hoyt. We love when get to dine in Jill's section. The whole staff works seamlessly to provide a wonderful dining experience. We can't wait to go back!
Mother daughter Christmas Eve dinner that was fabulous. What a treat! A random choice and a true miracle. Nothing less than perfect
Always a great experience. Thank you!!!!
