Joris is the head chef and co-owner with his wife Gisella and comes from Bergerac in France.
The food is amazing. The service is great. It's a little cafe, so expect small cafe seating, but it's not loud and there is still a feeling of intimacy, as you don't really hear other folks talking.
Bergerac is a little local gem. A delicious, romantic, authentic, quality... all around fantastic dining experience. The escargot was to die for. Highly recommend!!
Very good luncheon/ brunch fare with a French flair. Helpful, friendly wait staff. Ambiance a little lacking, but fine enough for a casual meal.
I checked out Bergerac for the Valentine's Day pre-fixed menu and it was such a wonderful experience. We have zero complaints. The service was amazing, the ambiance was so perfect for a romantic meal with my boyfriend and I loved the food. The cocktails were pretty out of this world as well.
Excellent gem in Southeast Portland! A bit of France on Woodstock!
A sweet little neighborhood bistro. It isn’t fancy but dear and warms the soul. Intimate setting for a small group, couple or even a lunch meeting.
Also a nice sized brunch menu.
Both our main courses (canard and steak) were excellent. Better duck confit than I have had almost anywhere.
Authentic French food with home feel.
This is a wonderful find and great value. Restaurants like these get discovered, and then busy and then expensive. Get in while the value is exceptional. Tight (ie quaint) space and high ceilings amplify the noise level. Also, the tables (for 2) are a little too long so you lose a little intimacy and you need to speak louder to compete with the noise level. Also, in colder climate, the room feels every opening of the door. The food quality, presentation and taste all make up for it. Very reasonable wine selection as well
Beautiful dining room. Quaint. Server attentive and welcoming. Food delicious in every aspect. First time visit and will return. Have already recommended it to others.
We found the cassoulet aggressively salted to the point of being the only thing we could taste. I have had cassoulet many times and never have I found it too salty. The fish special was bland, and the appetizer was rather expensive for what we received. We did enjoy the pear tart. Although the establishment gets generally positive reviews, there is s healthy minority complaining of issues with seasoning. I hope the owners pay attention.
This is French eating at it’s best - interesting taste combinations without being frou-frou. Honest regional dishes from Bergerac, France that delighted us (my husband is from Paris). The four of us kept making, ‘Mmmmmmm’, ‘Oh man!’, ‘Yum!’ kind of noises as we ate our way into food eactasy! We will definitely be returning, if not just for the desserts - yes, dessert after breakfast!
As a French native I can say the food is really authentic. Good taste, good atmosphere. I enjoy going there and have never been disappointed so far.
Absolutely lovely evening!
Probably the best find in this neighborhood. Try the specials!
Very good, very French food with cheerful, prompt service. Tables are quite close together.
This place blew us away. I’m certain there isn’t anything on the menu that won’t be a dish to remember. Our waitress was engaging, funny and had excellent timing. The food made us want a second helping though we were stuffed. We would actually drive down to Portland just to host a party or celebrate something special at this place. Amazing.
We've traveled in France and welcome the chance to relive those adventures with authentic food and gracious service. This was our first visit to Bergerac and won't be our last. Each of our entrees was delicious and the pear tart was outstanding. Our service was knowledgable and made a nice wine recommendation.
The food was very good except for the "special" guinea hen which were two somewhat weird little rounds containing quite a bit of fat. Next time we'll stick with the fixed menu.
Great food and service
Bergerac was a great adventure. The only problem we had was a large table of VERY noisy people and it is a small restaurant. With quiet diners, I would call it a romantic place for a good conversation and great food and service. Next time we'll hope for more quiet, peaceful dining but I would love to return for the food, service, ambience, and coziness of a small, affordable French restaurant.
Emily our server was terrific!
great spot in the hood, we recommend it to everyone.
My friend and i came to celebrate our birthdays. The cocktails and wine were right on and the food was delicious. I’ve also brought family from Chicago for dinner and they loved it. I highly recommend.
This place is amazing!!! We stumbled upon it two weeks ago, looking for a last minute place for a Thursday 7:30 light dinner. We got the last table and was so happy we did! We love mushrooms so ordered the polenta with sautéed mushrooms on top, plus we ordered a side of creamed mushrooms.....ooooh yummy! Then we went again to Bergerac for lunch (they had their brunch menu available) and I ordered the same polenta dish m with mushrooms and my husband ordered scrambled eggs with mushrooms:)) Our 12 year old daughter ordered off the children’s menu and got eggs Benedict which came with potatoes & salad, all for $6!!! We were delighted with everything!!
We love Bergerac! When the chef has time he will come around and answer questions about how something was prepared or where an ingredient came from. The staff is very friendly and professional. And the food is terrific! Chef has a wonderful way with sauces, everything is delicious but not needlessly complicated. Good value too, so we can afford to go there on a whim and not just on special occasions.
Very nice French food with reasonable wine options. Lunch looks interesting also
Great French Restaurant Find!
A great variety of entrees & appetizers.
Pate was great, casulet was over cooked disappointing, good wine selection, service was fine
Was a good place. Probably better for dinner. Quiche was a plain quiche with additives just thrown on top. Not as good as mixed in...coffee was cold and not very strong...bland as well...suggest getting a stronger dark roasts...also, limited lunch and brunch menu...
Wonderful restaurant for any occasion. The escargot were better than what I had in France. Reasonably priced, delicious menu, and the service was personable and attentive. We’ll be back
Sweet little spot in Woodstock for great service and a thoughtful French menu. Loved the Blue Note Jazz!
This restaurant had great food, was small and intimate with good service.
Very hospitable staff, food was absolutely delicious and generous portions!
Service was very slow - which was odd since there were only three tables.
Wait server forgot our bottle of wine and had to be reminded.
Wait server seemed distracted
Soup was not hot, side dish came out before entree
Very noisy for only a few people, could hear everyone's conversation.
Did not know there was music until only two tables left.
Restaurant needs more staff.
Everything we had was really good. We had the baked cheese appetizer which we both really liked. Good pours on the drinks! We had the poulet and ragu de champignon. Both excellent. My only issue was it took forever for the server to come back to see if we were finished. It was a different server who finally did and they took our stuff and boxed it for us (made up for the long wait). Desserts were nice. Our tab was $80. Will go back!
I’m not a connoisseur (Thank you spell check) but I appreciate good food. Bergerac has the most reasonable prices for the best food I have had in Portland.
The place was nicely done. Our server was charming and attentive, but the food was frankly terrible. The mixed green salad drenched in icky sweet balsamic vinegar dressing, and so was the bean salad. (Never mind that balsamic vinegar isn't French...). The croque monsieur was made of a crumbly sandwich bread that fell apart when drenched in a thin, tasteless bechamel - and no cheese??? The potato gratin was okay, but really just sliced potatoes plopped into a cheese sauce and run under a broiler for a few seconds.
Maybe the chef should crack open a French cookbook. These dishes are the most basic you can get.
The peach/almond tart filling was nice, but the crust was burnt to a fare-thee-well. It came doused with a chocolate sauce reminiscent of Hershey's, accompanied by a tooth-breaker of a cookie and a wad of whipped cream.
I mean, really?
This is an absolutely incredible restaurant. I have not had incredible French meal in my life and I have been to multiple areas in France. Don’t let the location (mixed use building on Woodstock) fool you. After the first time I went it has now become a staple in the dining options for my wife and I.
Absolutely go now!!!
Cozy atmosphere, excellnt food especially the dessert...almost wanted to lick the plate...great service. Definately worth every penny.
