First time here, it was great. The food and drinks were amazing
We celebrated the loveliest Mother's day at Bluehour. The service was outstanding - each person made Mom feel like the most important person in the room - and the food was unparalleled. The ambiance was cheerful, bright, and elegant. It was the perfect choice for our family.
It was my first time at Bluehour and I can't wait to return soon!
overpriced for a small brunch. should have had music for that price
Literally had an amazing date with the Fiancé! The pace of the food was outstanding and gave us time to talk and flirt. The server was there and aware but not in any way intrusive. We didn’t feel rushed and gave us enough time to really enjoy the food which was exquisite! Definitely recommend this truly enjoyable dining experience.
Waitress was delightful and a sommelier!
I’m now a fan! Literally everything and everyone was outstanding!!! Next time I’m in Portland I will eat here again!
One of the best and QUIETEST restaurants in Portland. The atmosphere was one of gratitude--gratitude expressed by the restaurant workers who treated me and my friends extremely well (always careful, for example, not to interrupt our conversation by asking or bringing us something), and gratitude from the four of us celebrating my birthday on a recent Sunday evening. Instead of canned music found almost everywhere else--and always too LOUD--there was a guitarist (no mic or speakers) playing good, mostly classical music--subtle but beautiful. And not at all intrusive. I look forward to going back to Bluehour again and again.
Bluehour was extremely accommodating with our large party. Highly recommend for a larger group.
Excellent food and service!
Exquisite at all levels! From the minute we walked in to the moment we left the staff was attentive, friendly and for sure made the food stand out even more as they presented it and framed it perfectly! I’ve been there before for business and personal events and knew the food was simply perfect, but this was the first time I went as a family and we will for sure be there more often as a family. Thank you!
Went to Bluehour for a date night. Was perfect. Food great, server knew the menu and winepairings and made the evening great. They were busy but tables are spaced so it was quiet and intimate.
Slow service. Forgot to deliver one meal. Waited forever to order. Waited forever for the bill. We were hoping things had changed but it has been this way for a long time. I doubt we will be coming back anytime soon.
This was my first visit and I was quite impressed. The brunch was yummy and reasonably priced. We had a table for 8 and could converse easily as it was sooo quiet. Service was cheerful and efficient and the $2 mimosas were a hit. The restrooms could use better lighting however. We will return
Visiting Portland for first time and found Bluehour walking around the Pearl District. It was my birthday and the sign on the sidewalk said live jazz. I peaked in the restaurant it looked great. Checked out online review and booked dinner. From the second we arrived on a rainy Portland night until we left when the music ended, everything was perfect, the food, ambience, service, etc. the salad was not over-dressed and super fresh. The oysters were great. I had had the best swordfish I ever tasted. The wine was great. My only complaint is $31 for Oban, which was similarly over priced everywhere else we have been in Portland.
Food and service was outstanding! Only negative comment is that price of cocktails is really too high. I wanted to order one but did not because of the price.....a ’blood and sand’ is one of my favorite cocktails, but not at $22 a pop! Others were priced less than that but were still pricey. Wine by the glass was more acceptable in terms of both price and quality.
This was our second visit to Blue Hour and it did not disappoint. Impeccable service from same waitress as last time, and great food with wonderful plate appeal. The hostess this time did not take out coats, but then again, it was not raining when we arrived. Wish it wasn't so spendy, but I guess you get what you pay for.
I had a business meeting setup for the evening. I called the night before to make sure the hostess knew my dinner plans and I had the right table. They failed to tell me that there was going to be a Live DJ and Drag show the night of our dinner. It was extremely hard to have conversations at our table and I wish we would of never came there that night. We should of been made aware when we made reservations.
Service superb. Atmosphere superb
Food a bit rich
I dined during March special $33 menu month. Both entrees were delicious but small. And my dessert was the smallest scoop of sorbet ever with apologies from the waiter and also an apology for the absent cookie (they ran out and offered no substitute).
My wife and I chose Bluehour because we'd heard about it. Frankly, we were disappointed. I don't mind paying top dollar when we talk about the meal for days, but we won't. Although comfortable with very pleasant and helpful staff, there simply wasn't the attention to detail that expensive places must have. I'd been fasting so I ordered an appetizer: seared scallops $24 had two medium-sized scallops. They were delicious, but the dish is preposterously overpriced. Server brought beautiful gougères, which we declined because we're both gluten-free, but there was no effort to offer/bring anything else. The server was very nice and was "present" when at our table, but he checked back with us at odd times with long gaps in between. The wait between salad and main course was about one-half hour (5:30 reservation). The salad was a large handful of arugula, whose principal feature was to have the stems aligned vertically, with several radish slices and a mediocre vinaigrette. I'd make better ones at home with a blindfold. The check was incorrect, charging more than the price for the bottle, which was graciously corrected. I want to like this place, but won't be rushing back.
On a more positive note, my roasted beet salad had ornate presentation, including super-thin brittle hibiscus crisps that were sublime. A nice wine list with high-quality wines.
great food , great setting and great company. The waiter was not very friendly at all!
Always on of our "go to places" and NEVER disappointed.
The menu was interesting without be overly complicated. Each bite was complex and wonderful. Starters to dessert, we were excited and thrilled with everything we ordered.
Open and airy. Relaxed but classy atmosphere. One of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time.
Every dish was delicious. The Portland Dining Month offer was a great deal.
Blue Hour is consistent... service was exceptional, classy and attentive. Food was as expected, which is all I can ask for at Blue Hour since all of my memories are positive! I think that's why they're still around, still relatively crowded and respected... they deliver what is expected of a stylish, swank eatery and rarely, if ever disappoint. Haven't been in a while? Go and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed.
Went in for the Portland Dining Month menu. Every thing was great. The food was outstanding, as was the service. Always have a great experience when dining there.
Excellent service and wonderful food. This made for a wonderful date night, with the high level of attention making it feel like a special evening out. We came after seeing the menu on Portland Dining Month and all the food was wonderful. We hope to return soon!
Great Vibe and awesome music! Sit at the bar it you can, seats are limited and offers bar food. The dinning table are compact and intimate. But it’s all a part of the jazzy vibe.
It was my girlfriends birthday and we were in town from Texas looking for a nice dinner and night out and Bluehour far exceeded our expectations. Wonderful atmosphere and great live music, great vibes and service.
Absolutely, service was phenomenal, food was delish, and I loved the menu they gave for Portland Dining Month.
Fabulous food and the best service in town. I cannot think of a nicer place to dress up and go out for a fine dinner. Rivals places in San Francisco and NY.
Excellent service and delicious brunch! Definitely going back for more.
The hostess was very accommodating and kind even though we mistakenly arrived late for our reservation. The waitstaff was also very friendly and helpful. Our main courses did take quite a while to arrive. The food and drinks were delicious.
Bluehour has been a favorite spot for friends for years. I finally made it and was very happy I did. The ambiance is very classy but not pretentious. The service and food was excellent. I can't wait to go back!
Always a great place to eat due to large selection of foods and wines. Our server Jill was fantastic !
It was wonderful! Thank you!
I stopped here for Portland Dining Month. Cauliflower soup with caviar on top was delicious, gnocchi w/pickled mushrooms & these little balls of apple had an amazing contrast of flavors and the dessert was a decadent chocolate, pb, mallow torte. On a whim I decided to try a grasshopper for my beverage and was not disappointed. This has been my favorite beverage all dining month long. The meal also came with a couple extras including a beet candy and a fresh cheese roll. Service was great and the live music in the bar really added to the ambiance. No complaints here. I'm sad that it took me this long to find this place.
Great food, service and atmosphere. It was a Madris Gras celebration brunch with made the experience that much better!
I was able to create an entire timeline of events
12:20 we were seated
12:30 drinks ordered
12:40 waitress comes by and says she lost our order for our drinks then went to get them which took another 5 minutes. We give the food order
12:58 starter served
13:11 entree served.
My entree was lukewarm and the syrup had just been pulled out of the fridge.
The manager was good in removing the entree from my bill but even still the food wasn't anything to rave about.
