    We had a group of four and sat in the covered and heated outdoor patio. Our server was very helpful and guided us towards ordering the right amount of food for the table. The food itself was delicious, as were the drinks!

    Portland has fewer restaurants specializing in Spanish cuisine than it used to a few years ago. Bar Casa Vale does a great job of preparing many of my favorite dishes from Spain, including octopus and paella. Friendly, professional service and a creative cocktail menu too.

    The servers really couldn’t be bothered to provide any kind of service. Despite great reviews, the food was 100 % meh. The outdoor space is literally a cacophonous parking lot with a tent. Feels like a cafeteria. Moved inside but the service was aggressively rude. The bartender softened up toward the end but was really not into being helpful at all. We love radicchio and this place shouldn’t have it on the menu if they don’t know how to serve it. This appeared to be more than an ‘off night’. While it wasn’t really expensive- the atmosphere left us all feeling depressed! Which was kind of hard to do. I suggest trying almost anyplace else.

    OUTSTANDING! We loved all of it. Nice cocktails and especially loved the dates stuffed with bacon and bleu cheese. Server offered great suggestions as this was our first time. Each plate has only 3-5 items so you'll need several plates but that's the whole point! Go...you won't be disappointed.

    Great cocktails and Spanish wines by the glass. The menu was appealing and the food came out right away and with good pacing. The steamed clams and the patatas bravas were the high points for our table, the pork ribs a little less so. Would definitely come again!

    Great tapas. My steak was wonderful. Service was lovely. Very good mixed drinks (we had sangria and a rum old fashioned). Unfortunately my husband’s paella was very disappointing. If we had avoided that dish it would have been a near perfect meal, but it was also the main reason we chose to try Bar Casa.

    Quail was the size of a tiny chicken wing and overcooked, might’ve been another bird actually. Patatas bravas was missing aioli/sauce and felt dry. Chocolate cheesecake was dry and bitter. Other dishes were better but for the price hoped for better.

    Good ambiance and nice staff, but we came for the paella and it wasn’t good. The rice was mushy (they said they precook it), and the menu also said there was clams in the paella, but there wasn’t. When I asked, they said it was a misprint on the menu.

    So my wife and I have a few favorite go to restaurants in town. I had just heard a glowing review of Casa Vale from someone in the bar industry and put them on our list. Long story short, our high school daughter had better plans than to hang with the rents so I made a last minute reservation. Service, food and drinks were all on point. This place is now on our regular rotation of go to restaurants.

    Bar Casa Vale is inviting, comfortable and fun. It was a great place to take our toddler, who enjoyed the flavorful tapas. Although I found the fried cod noticeably too salty, the patatas bravas, croquetas, and pan con tomate were truly excellent.

    Wonderful food, had no choice but to sit outside in covered area. Had many fires going but didn’t stop gust of wind at your feet. Wear long socks and boots for sure! The outside patio area is very loud once large groups arrive. It was quiet and enjoyable when it was just us. I would recommend going earlier to avoid loudness and waiting on food. Next time will make sure to figure out how to sit inside.
