The food was all DELICIOUS. Drinks were unique and well done. Service was excellent. Can’t wait to return!
Food was amazing, and the back patio has such great ambiance!
Great experience - amazing food, presentation, service and ambiance - can’t wait to come back!
Excellent Mother’s Day brunch! Delicious cocktails and great food, all on their lovely covered patio. Can’t wait to return for dinner soon!
Really great elevated bistro style food. Been in Portland for 10 years and love it when we find another gem! Casual but upscale. Mussels, gem salad, lobster roll and hangar steak. Nice wines and drinks. Service impeccable but not
Pretentious at all. $140. Good value for sure. Aready planning a return trip.
Great food. Amanda the server was outstanding!
Nice ambiance and patio. Servers were nice enough. Creative menu but felt like chef is trying too hard. The quality of the ingredients used were masked by overpowering spices in the burrata and fluke. Black rice was excellent. Grass fed hangar steak was good meat but over-seasoned and too much sauce. Excellent cocktails. Would highly recommend the Knife Fight. Overall, good not great. Do not regret going but probably wouldn’t go again.
Never disappoints. Wonderful dinner with excellent
Food and cocktails were delicious. The outdoor dining area was perfectly fine during this COVID pandemic, I just didn't enjoy our table that was right next to the doorway where everyone walked past.
Our first visit to this great neighborhood restaurant. Great food, and a really impressive adaptation to outdoor, covered, heated dining.
Perfect! Everything about it. Great food, great drinks, great service!
Definitely going back! WE sat out in the patio, which was quite comfortable. The service was great, and the food was wonderful! The charred beet salad was amazing, and burger and mussels we very tasty.
My wife and I love this place. The service and food are incredible. I mistakenly booked the wrong day for my wife's birthday and the host could not have been better about finding a spot for us despite being busy. Highly recommend.
Little Giant was great-food was delicious and service was accommodating and so friendly. will go back again soon!
They have good food and a safe environment. Definitely worth visiting
The potatoes were crispy and salty on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside. The salad was perfectly dressed. The staff was friendly and accommodating.
Nothing but good. Food, drinks and service were alk great.
Wait staff personable and on their game
Loved, loved the appetizers!
Okay. Everything was very spicy and flavors didn’t seem that complex or interesting.
Great food and great service. Rachel was our server. Great job.
Delectable brunch selection. I have now eaten all the items on the menu and am happy to start over again.
Good option for outdoor dining. Great food and back terrace is quiet and comfortable
Everything was fantastic! We were all so happy with our meal choices that we shared it all!!
We had a lovely Easter Brunch at Little Giant. Their new outdoor dining space is fantastic. We will be back!
It was a gift certificate from our son. It took two old folks outside their comfort zone and it was all wonderful!!!
Amazing food - especially the polenta/mushroom appetizer!
Great service. Very safe and well organized as per covid requirements. Highly recommended. Love it!
The porch setting at Little Giant was extremely comfortable for our family birthday gathering for my youngest son. The heated seats and shelter from the wind made the 50 degree evening a comfortable one. Many of us have been at least partially vaccinated so we felt safe to gather outside. The food was tasty and great for everyone from meat eaters to pescatarians. The service was kind, professional, and attentive. We will be back!
What a great place! I recommend trying things you normally wouldn't go for and enjoying the wonderful flavors and new taste!
the seating is only outside, but very comfortable and has a great ambiance. they will inform you only will have 90 minutes but that was plenty of time for Apps/Drinks/Entrée and dessert! highly recommend getting the Mexican toast!
The outdoor patio space was comfortable. Seat warmers and heaters worked well.
Little Giant was delicious as always - and the new back room is a gem!
Excellent food. Considerate service. "Outdoor" dining during covid warm and comfortable. Loved the heated seats!
Beautiful outdoor space with wonderful service. The food is good, but not extraordinary; the restaurant week menu may have affected that a little.
So comfortable on the patio that I took my coat off to eat oysters and mussels and feel delightfully normal.
I love Little Giant and their restaurant week specials were fantastic! Great customer service, great outdoor heated seating! Would recommend!
Dinner with friends
The new outdoor space makes outdoor dining comfortable in the middle of winter! Brunch is great and there are menu items for everyone
Enjoyed a lovely brunch today at the Little Giant this Saturday with friends, finally! We sat in the heated outdoor area and were very comfortable, it was nice to look up and see the sky.
I had the Shakshuka and a Bloody Mary and both were excellent! Making reservations again for this Saturday-with two different friends who have never been!
Sooooo, the food was good. If we weren’t eating outside it would have made the experience even better. The food came out and it was effected by the cold of sitting outside. Very cool and unique dishes that you don’t find everywhere. Small portions and small drink portions but very delicious. Service was incredible. Definitely worth it to come back when they are serving indoors and can appreciate the restaurant for what it’s meant to be!
We were seated at the table closest to the open wall. It was quite chilly which we expected. We had just ordered drinks when a table opened up closer to the warmer end of the deck. We asked if we could move to the open table and the server said that after she cleaned it, we could move. When our drinks arrived, the server told us we couldn’t move because we had already taken off our masks. The table remained empty for quite awhile.
The fried chicken arrived in a bowl with no lettuce or veggies. It was a lackluster presentation with a bland flavor. The burgers were passable but the rolls were beautifully burnished and delicious!
The inflexibility around table choice simply should not have happened. I sincerely apologize for that. I will write to you separately on that. On the fried chicken, thank you for the feedback, which we will take under serious consideration. Thank you for taking the time to help us improve our offering! Yours, Ian.
