Wonderful food in a modest space and family run. Reminds me of small family run restaurants in France.

Fantastic prefix menu for wild game night, lovely flavors, chef is gracious and interesting. Servers did not seem ready to offer all the choices of beverages for this seating. Pacing was perfect, wine pairing once we got it was on par.

One of the best meals I have ever had in Portland! I had the Filet de Boeuf and it was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had Cassoulet Toulouse and loved it. Great to see this wonderful restaurant filled up, every table was occupied by the time we left. Only drawback is they did not seem to have enough staff to take care of everyone in a timely manner. I.e., we ordered soup, but got our entree before the soup so we had to cancel the soup; slow to come back for our dessert order, slow to bring our check. Noticed the table next to us were slow to get their wine. SO...if you go, plan on having a relaxed time, don't be in a rush, chill. The food will be well worth it!

A pre-theatre meal with friends who had not previously known of or experienced Bergerac...resulted in three new fans.

This was my second time at Bergerac. We chose this spot because the food is good, prices are reasonable and the noise level is low enough so that you can carry on a conversation. Everything was wonderful!

We didn’t know what to expect other gab it’s pricy. The food was delicious. The staff was friendly. On fridays and Saturday’s make a reservation. It was packed and they were turning people away. We will absolutely be back. We had the lamb, king salmon and snails. All were amazing.

Will recommend with a caution. This is a charming place in terms of atmosphere and cordial service. Two persons in our party ordered the cassoulet and it was disappointing given the French Bistro theme. It was dried out due to much oven time. Neither one finished it and declined the offer to take the rest home.

The lamb and featured fresh fish were both excellent.

To their credit; an excellent, reasonably priced wine list was a plus.

I had the Croque Monsieur and it was tasty...a little heavy on the smoky ham, but the bechamel sauce was nice, with a subtle touch of nutmeg, my favorite. It was quite rich, and served with a baby greens salad that had a pretty oily dressing. My dining partner and I felt a lighter, crisper salad, without a heavy dressing, would have nicely offset the rich, heavy flavor or the Croque Monsieur better. The pickled cabbage was delightful!

Our table was by the entry, so it felt less comfortable, but in general, I like the small room. Our mixed drinks were outstanding, and the wine our waitress recommended was very nice. The salads are simply fantastic, as were the deserts. The lamb entree stood out among our entrees.My only criticism is the limited choice for vegitarians.

I found this gem based on Open Table reviews. Cozy space with authentic French comfort food. The duck confit (with onion jam) was absolutely the best duck I have ever had. My mom loved the lamb entree. The chef's platter appetizer was also excellent. Very reasonable prices for the quality of food. My mom says she's found her new favorite restaurant! (Also, extra stars should be given for the restaurant contacting me to let me know we had left an envelope with a sizable amount of money in it on the table!)

Nice cozy restaurant, I’m looking forward to visiting again! Our pear salad and lamb navarin were both excellent.

The appetizer cheese plate was small and disappointing. There were little slices of three different cheeses, some pear slices, an overpowering onion jam and a pile of toasted sunflower seeds.

Dessert was a pear & almond tart served with ice cream & whipped cream.

A nice but maybe overworked server.

Excellent food and service. The tomato based appetizer was particularly good as was the special halibut dish of the night. Sorbet with berries was an excellent and refreshing finish.

Everyone should go to a special monthly dinner at Bergerac! The food will be delicious and dishes that you have never tasted before. During the meal the chef will come around and talk about the food, and answer questions. Service is outstanding, and sitting at communal tables means you might make new friends. It was great!

It was our first time and we loved the scallop appetizer, the snails, the duck entree, and the halibut. The fromage appetizer was was lacking, needed less seeds and jam and more cheese. The pots de chocolate was grainy, and pear and almond tart was greasy and lacked almond flavor so less than desirable. We will definitely be back.
