BEAST features the bounty of the Northwest with French inspiration in mind. A six-course prix-fixe dinner is offered five nights a week in a communal setting. The menu changes Wednesday and remains the same for the next two weeks based upon the ingredients of the season. A three-course prix-fixe brunch is offered every Sunday.

Wine pairings are available for dinner and brunch. As our menu changes every two weeks, so do they.

We politely decline substitutions as we offer a set menu only but are often able to accommodate allergies with advanced notice.

A credit card is required to secure all reservations. We have a 24-hour cancellation policy for parties up to five people and a 48-hour cancellation policy for parties of six or more. Any cancellations within the aforementioned timeframes will result in an $85 charge per person and $30 for brunch.

Beast has to be the best restaurant in Portland. I have seen restaurants come and go and Beast keeps improving and getting better and better.

Knowing that some of you will label this review as heresy, and as much as it pains me to write this, I think we witnessed the beginning of the end of Beast. Having eaten in the various incarnations of Family Supper and now Beast, I feel that we have enough experience to know the amazing highs that are possible by the Beast crew. Unfortunately, our last meal was mostly a low. The Amuse-Bouche was a dense, off-putting seafood salad on a dry wafer. The Oil Poached Hokaiddo Sea Scallop came sitting on a piece of too thick Pineapple. The Pineapple completely overpowered the Sea Scallop. The Parsley Garganelli was good, but not great, the pasta was a bit dry. The Beef Cheeks was not plural, it wasn't even singular, it was fractional. Sadly, it was served room temp at best. The Beef Cheek came with some Frisée scattered on it. It made no sense to have a bitter element with Whipped Potatoes and Carrots...less is more. The Beet and Endive salad was very good. The Profiterole with Blue Cheese was good but not great. The La Peral Blue Cheese was the best thing on this dish, I am going to call the Cheese Bar and see if they have any in stock. The Tres Leche cake was good, but here again this dish had unnecessary and unwanted micro-greens on it. Why?

The music didn't help the middling food. It was a combination of Pop and R&B that was too loud and mostly not very good. I overheard the diners next to me comment that the music sounded "like a race to the bottom of what was bad in 2017". I realize that music is very subjective, just like my review here, but I don't know many kids who would have enjoyed this music and can also afford Beast. Who is being catered to here? The clientele or the staff?

On a more positive note, the staff was attentive and very friendly.

There are lots of food options in Portland, perhaps one of them will take the mantle away from Beast.

I brought my wife here on a date after hearing good things from friends of ours. We chose to include the wine tasting which we both agreed was absolutely the right choice. The food was amazing and the portions sized appropriately given the 6 courses provided. While the seating is group friendly we kept to ourselves and found no issue with either noise level or feeling unable to share the moment.

A truly wonderful dining experience which we will do again once the season changes to experience a radically different set of flavors.

I so enjoyed our experience at Beast. All of the food was artfully prepared, even the bread from a local baker was a cut above. The beef cheek was something to remember. Lovely intimate setting and friendly staff.

Every bite was pure perfection. Wine parings were perfectly matched. The atmosphere is quiet and centered around the food.
