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.

Wrong night to visit this place! They had a big party upstairs, very loud! It took 1 hour and 20 minutes to get our food, I guess the kitchen made the call the party was more important! When we go our food it wasn't very good, in fact one meal sent back completely! Bad, bad, BAD! Plenty of other restaurants in the neighborhood!

This is now a go-to spot for me and my family. They were great with our party of 6 plus baby. The food is terrific and service is great. I love all of the live trees they have on the inside and it's vibrant but quiet enough to hear everyone at the table. It's also around great shopping areas.

Great place to go for "off the menu" weekend brunch. I thought it was terrific. Opens at 10am, which was the perfect time to arrive.
The only hitch I had was that the server immediately brought our table a plate of delicious donut holes in caramel. I don't believe anyone ordered it. I wrongly assumed it was a complimentary offering. However it materialized as $8 on the bill.

This is the second time I ate at 23Hoyt. The experience was the same. The service was excellent - by excellent, I mean the wait staff was friendly and attentive. It was Thanksgiving so the pre-fixe menu had sufficient options for a great meal. The recommended wine was also excellent (an Oregon Pinot Noir. We had a 7:00 pm reservations and got there a little early. We sat almost to the minute!!!! Love this restaurant. Friends may be visiting soon and my wife said, "we're definitely taking them to 23Hoyt to experience the best of Portland dining!!"

Note: my wife and I are not fine dining experts, but we've had the opportunity to dine is some very fine restaurant in NYC (11 Madison), Tokyo, Seattle, San Francisco, Seoul, etc. 23Hoyt ranks up there with restaurants in all of these cities.

Well done!!!

Bad night. Three for dinner. Steak and duck were good as were the apps. Salmon was flavorless and after waiting 20 mins for the Deseret it was so embarrassing the waiter (only bright spot of tne evening) took it off tbe bill before putting it on tne table. Clearly the kitchen was overwhelmed.

Won’t be going back anytime soon.

Our waiter, Beau, was really kind and exceptional. He had a lot of great advice about food choices. The food was really hearty and delicious, yet very healthy and fresh. I could tell everything was made fresh to order. The ambiance is beautiful and I will definitely be back for another round. We had the Veal Marsala and it was delish, but I want to try the cod next time!

My wife and I had to be in Portland, so we decided to make a date out of it and we were very happy we did. The salad (heirloom), entrees (risotto and veal Marsala) and wines were exceptional. Staff cordial, outgoing and "just nice" and treated us very well. Will certainly be back again. Thank you 23Hoyt!!!

We had a very nice dinner at 23Hoyt. We asked for a quiet table, and while there may be no truly quiet table at this restaurant, we were seated in a distant corner of the dining room. Our server was attentive, friendly, informative, and appropriate. Food prices were good, considering the rising operating costs at Portland's restaurants, and the portions were both generous and delicious. Cocktails were outstanding. 23Hoyt does not pretend to be a temple of haute cuisine, but we had a very good time; it was a memorable meal, and we shall return.
