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.

The food was some of the best in the city. Definitely plan on spending a full evening here as everything is pretty slow but in the best way! The bread was pretty low quality. Regardless 10/10.

Bluehour is usually great, however tonight they were off their game. Our server was too busy with other tables to focus on helping us. People around us were getting things before we were, yet they arrived 30 min after we did. Tonight was our anniversary and dining at Bluehour was subpar.

Great vibe, delicious food, very nice and friendly staff. This was my wife and my third Valentine's dinner here. Really love this place!

Ambience was great and service was decent, but a bit inconsistent near the end. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time. 2 problems with the night, the tables were so wobbly and moved so much i couldn't even cut my lamb without making the table vibrate. We ended up with the table about 3 feet from where we where seated at the beginning of the night, i even saw other people complaining about the tables to there dates, also, they could have calmed down with the amount of salt they put on our food. It's like they added the whole Pacific ocean. Obviously I'm over exaggerating, but still, get new tables, chairs, and less salt next time. I'll still going to come back though.

We went here on Valentines Day, so it was really busy. The live music was beautiful and the presentation of the food was gorgeous. There was a set menu, which we sort of expected, but we didn’t think the food was worth the price per head that we paid. The service wasn’t great, as we waited to have water refilled or to even get the check for quite some time. Overall not bad. I’d want to go here on a regular night.

Went for an earlier Valentine's date night. Everything we had was amazing! Started with the scallops as an appetizer then went with the pork loin and duck for our entrees. Finished up with the toffee sundae. Really hard to choose what my favorite dish was because they were all delicious but I've got a soft spot in my belly for duck so I'll choose that as my favorite.

We had dinner at this restaurant on Saturday, February 10. We had reservations at 6:15 pm. Our party of 5 was there to celebrate the 80th birthday of my aunt.
We were seated in the middle of the room. Our waiter, arrived and took our drink orders. He later came back for our dinner orders. Our salads came out fine. However, one leaf of the round table nearly dropped my wife's burrata cheese appetizer on her lap. The bus person adjusted the leaf to keep from dropping. Our salad plates sat on the table for many minutes while bussers, our waiter and other staff passed by. When our meals came, the salad plates were still on the table. It was an awkward moment while the delivery people tried to move salad plates and flatware out of the way to make room on the table. We had to help the staff make room and get settled. On top of the the challenges with placing the dinners, there was no silverware, it had been taken off with the salad plates. The waiter took a minute or two to calculate how many place settings needed to be replaced (all five of them). He finally returned with the place settings and we could start to eat. My wife had ordered the bavette steak "medium" but it came out very much medium rare, she could not eat half of her dinner. We had hoped to send it back to finish it's cooking, but the waiter did not return to check in. When it came time for the check, he brought out a check for items that we did not order. It was not the correct check. When we pointed it out, he promised that the incorrect check would not be processed. Upon return to Boise, I sent a message to the Owner. He responded that evening that he was "shocked" and would have a meeting with his managers the next day (Monday) and get back to me. It has now been 3 business days since his message and no response. Having traveled to Portland for a special dinner, we had been looking forward to our evening. Instead, it was just OK, with several frustrating events.

Wonderful as always.
I have a small appetite and always order an appetizer as my entree or split something with my husband, who also gets a salad.

Most places are condescending when taking my order - asking if I'm sure I don't want anything else - then act like I'm a waste of energy. Blue Hour's waiters always manage my small order with grace and professionalism. Thank you.

Excellent all the way around. The wait staff paced our dinner perfectly for our on-time arrival at PCS theater.

Great place to go before a play at Gerding Theater.

Disappointed the wine I ordered was out of stock! Oh well.
