Bluehour means different things to different people. In French literature it describes any time of day "of heightened emotion." In Portland it has come to mean "a great place to dine."

As the premier modern restaurant in the Pearl District, Bluehour opened its doors in 2000, with what Gourmet Magazine describes as, "the most sophisticated, contemporary food in town." Guests choose between the elegant dining room or the casual café and bar.


Surprising and delicious describes the Modern Northwest cuisine we create in the Bluehour kitchen each night. The menu is printed daily, so come in and enjoy Chef Chris Carriker's seasonally inspired menu.

Bluehour is a long-time favorite. We had the usual delicious meal and excellent service in the beautiful Bluehour space. Our server was friendly and efficient, as was his assistant. The oysters, the radicchio salad, the duck, and the ribeye were standouts. Our group was going to a play at the Armory, and we got out in plenty of time without feeling rushed or anxious.

Appetizers were good along with the salad and wine selection. Unfortunately, the steak was terrible. Extremely chewy and hard to eat. The server was extremely understanding and offered to replace the meal free of charge. Need some other dinner selections on the menu to choose from.

I brought a group of seven and the service was impeccable. The design and layout were also pleasant, providing a felicitous venue for my birthday celebration. Unfortunately, out of my entire party, only I was extremely happy with my food! Since it was my birthday, that is all that mattered. But despite pricy meals, I am a bit miffed my friends did not enjoy their meals as much as I did.

That said, were were treated with a large round of appetizers courtesy of the chef, and I got a free slice of cake. And the drinks were all great for everyone.

I think its a perfect spot if you know you're going to enjoy what you order, but not the best price range to be risking your enjoyment.

Excellent overall. Great service, great food, wonderful ambience, outstanding music(Bobby Torres)!! Would recommend BlueHour for any occasion. I made several changes in my original reservation with nary a problem. Very friendly and knowledgeable service staff! The food was creative and delicious and well worth the price!

I had a great dinner there a couple days after Christmas. Fantastic wine by the glass options. The seafood Fettuccine was to die for. Big chunks of crab meat in a lobster sauce. It was certainly rich, but amazing flavor. The server we had was also outstanding. I will certainly return. Amazing place.

The food and service as perfect for our holiday get together with friends. The noise level is moderate so we could have great conversation as well.

Always excellent, friendly service and a great meal at Blue Hour.
Wonderful scallops appetizer, delicious beet salad, and heavenly duck breast entree.
The staff is gracious, convivial, and attentive.
I've never had a bad experience here.

Tasteless soup, crab shell in the seafood linguini, over cooked duck and very small portion, and I was very sick after eating there. Such a HUGE disappointment on my 55th birthday! This was not worth half of what we paid.
