Food was very good. The escargot was tasty. The halibut was just a tad dry and overcooked. The sauces were awesome. I prefer squash to have a little bit of crunch to them so, for my taste, they were soft and overcooked. The corn was cooked perfectly.
The duck was really good, as were the mushrooms and rice. The chocolate dessert was yummy and really rich, the syrup on the other dessert was a little watery so it made the cake very soft, but the fruit was great. The peach salad was awesome. The portions were larger than I expected. Sitting outside, it did remind me of being back in France at an outdoor cafe.

A near-perfect Covid era dining experience! We were able to sit outside on the newly created patio, at least 10 feet away from the nearest table. We had full confidence in the sanitization, masking, and other safety measures of the restaurant.
The food - currently only a set menu - was fantastic as always. The wine list is small but affordable, interesting, and delicious.
This is thoughtfully prepared, lovingly made, beautifully presented dining.
Bravo!

Unfortunately I did not catch the servers name, but she did an amazing job helping me surprise my boyfriend for his early birthday meal~! He didn't see it coming and the candle touch and little singing was beyond my expectation as a diner. I truly appreciated the efforts so much! And of course, I was able to secure the check thanks to some help from her as well! Wish I lived in Portland and could come more often. I absolutely love the ambiance of the restaurant as well and during this pandemic they did everything to make sure the dining experience was safe and enjoyable! <3

This was the third time that I have eaten at Bergerac. On this visit I found the service and the food not as good as the other times that I have been there. My husband and daughter had the duck. They both found it to be very salty. The service was only so-so. No one came by during the meal to check and see if we wanted another glass of wine. Just didn't seem to be on the same level as I remember from past visits.

Chef/owner from Bordeaux, duck confit that is correct and delicious with an onion jam that is beyond addictive and cassoulet that takes you to a country estate in France. Highly recommended.

Very interesting and tasty food. Lots of healthy options. The setting a like being in someone's provincial kitchen, homey and welcoming. There is sufficient space around the few tables to feel comfortable having a private conversation. The wait staff is exceptionally patient and helpful both with the main menu and with pairing the dishes with a good wine.

Unpretentious and delicious French food. It's small, a little loud, and a bit crowded but that's part of its charm. If you can get a spot on the little patio during the Summer to enjoy escargot and a bottle of white wine with a friend, you'll have a great time.

Bergerac is our favorite restaurant in Portland. We have been there many times and the food is outstanding. A small restaurant with about 12 tables, it is intimate and your food is cooked to order, served hot, and timely by outstanding staff. Our favorite dishes are the beef medallions, roasted chicken, roasted duck, and fish special of the day. We highly recommend it.

Bergerac is a lovely quiet setting and they know French cooking. Their presentation is wonderful, country fresh and they keep it uncomplicated, perfectly blending flavors and avoiding excessive richness, so common in French restaurants that do not get it.

My friend and I were looking for a quiet spot to catch up. Bergerac was perfect. We ordered a few different small plates to share. Everything was delicious. The service was a tad spotty, but the proprietor did a great job of handling several tables at once. I enjoyed myself so much, I tried to make a reservation on a weekend evening for four, but was turned off by the requirement of a credit card just to reserve for 4 people, so we'll go elsewhere.

Great neighborhood find and place to take out of town foodie family and friends. Consistently good to great French cooking that can be easily paired with wine by the glass or bottle. Tried the duck breast special which was a surprise since it had the texture of beef! This particular duck is larger and almost borders on goose. Delicious sauce with some sweet-tart flavors along with blanched radishes and slightly roasted carrots. Check for nightly specials and ask what wine to pair. Highly recommend for a week night break from cooking or special weekend night out. Bon Appetit!

The restaurant is tucked into a strip mall, yet as soon as you walk in you realize that it is something special. Friendly service, informal, quality food prepared by a real Frenchman who has learned his craft from his family. The food is beautifully presented, comes hot out right of the kitchen, generous portions, fair price. One of my very favorite restaurants in Portland.

We dined with neighborhood friends who had never been to Bergerac before. We all enjoyed the meal.

In the 6 or 7 times I've previously been to Bistro Bergerac. it's never been as busy as it was last Saturday night. It seemed that there was not enough staff to attend to the full house. Fortunately there was water and menus on the table when we arrived, but it took a long time before our server came to our table to take our beverage order. By then we were ready to order our meal. The wait time was rather long.

The noise level was high, not unsurprisingly given the full house. Difficult to converse comfortably across the table.

Food was good. I was slightly disappointed with the special dessert; blood orange creme brûlée and would not order it again.

The server helped us decide to order a bottle of wine rather than individual glasses for the sake of economy, which I appreciated. The bottle we chose of French white blend (Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon) was unusual and well-priced.

In future I'll avoid Saturday night in preference for a week night when noise would be less and service more attentive.

All in all still an exceptional place in the neighborhood, albeit an unlikely location in a nondescript building.

The food was nothing less than fantastic. What I heard while I was there was that the chef is from France, but I didn't catch whether the town or region was called Bergerac, which is why the restaurant is so named. In any case, I also heard that the menu are various comfort foods from there. This 'comfort food', as they called it was pretty fancy for comfort food, particularly in terms of presentation. Southern comfort food would probably never look so good. I was glad to have arrived toward the beginning of dinner service as the place was small and people were waiting outside to get tables. Reservations recommended.

Second visit. Cassoulet was on par with other quality restaurants. Escargot was country style - but less butter and garlic than you may be expecting. Lamb was very good, it was balanced with other ingredients on the dish. Very personable service. Unpretentious and good for someone wanting French style without a fussy atmosphere. The Chairman approves.
