My daughter and I had a wonderful experience at Brooklyn Trattoria. Brooklyn has done a fabulous job of making all of us feel safe while dining out. There are 12 headed tents out back in the courtyard for individual dining. The entire staff was so friendly and accommodating! Even the owner came by to see how we were doing and we had a lovely conversation with him about his restaurant and how he was faring during the pandemic. Food was DELICIOUS to say the least. I'm happy to be able to support local, small businesses during this difficult time. We'll be back, for sure! Highly recommend.

Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish, cannot remember such a warm, personable experience at a restaurant anywhere. After an Open Table flub-up, the owner himself rectified it and set us up for a fun night to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The personal outside tent was great and the best outdoor setup of any Portland area restaurant we’ve been to in the last year with the pandemic. Outstanding food - best calamari ever, and the short ribs and osso busco were perfectly cooked - and wonderful service. We will be back and often!

Server was not very attentive, rude at some points. Food quality was not worth the price. Server never came back with my dessert. Had to go in to pick it up. We were there for my birthday. There was zero acknowledgement or wishes or anything. Just a lousy experience unfortunately

We had never been to BT but found it listed on Open Table then took a chance and booked a reservation. We were NOT disappointed! The outside entrance isn’t much to look at; it’s located in a strip mall so has that basic front door appeal but the dining room was quaint and clean. We were seated outside in one of the few enclosed dining spaces; it was a little breezy and cooling off so it was perfect. The menu is really nice and we each ordered a margarita which were delicious! The owner David came over and shared some dinner options and chatted for a bit. We order dinner and I have to say both were incredible! I had the chicken and pasta (the noodles are so light and beautiful in a light caper sauce and my husband had the lamb Osso bucco (his favorite and this was amazing served over polenta). We shared a Caesar salad which was made to perfection; dressing perfect and anchovies on top! No room for dessert unfortunately but it sound great. The staff were all super friendly and kept checking in to see that we were taken care of. Will absolutely go back!!!

My co-workers and I had a great dinner sharing a sampling of different dishes. We started with the calamari and a spring mix salad. Then, for dinner we had the lasagna, fiorentina steak, and seafood saffron pasta. Fan favorites were the steak and pasta. Both dishes were unexpectedly delicious and full of flavor. Unfortunately, we didn’t save room for dessert. That will need to be next time. We look forward to our next meal.

HI and thanks for taking the time to do a 5 star review! The Bistecca Fiorentina is an amazing T bone steak from Laney Farms. Keeping with the decadent Italian steak culture, we try to keep that going at Brooklyn! We are delighted to have such a great response to the steaks from customers and of course the Saffron Seafood Dish by Mario is a big fav! Come back for desert soon! David

Dined indoors to be warm, but door was kept open for waiters' convenience serving in tents; indoor diners' comfort came second. Great food. Will wait to return till after pandemic so we can dine in comfort.

HI and thanks for the review, actually the tents outside are warmer than inside the restaurant when its cold out, the door opens a lot and holding dishes its impossible to keep it closed.. Come back soon and give a tent a try for a really fun warm evening! David

What a gem and almost walking distance from home. Would already classify us as regulars having recently moved to Oregon. The owner, David Servatius, is hands-on. Restaurant is true to its name and inspiration, Brooklyn, NY. We’ve enjoyed all the dishes. Recommend the eggplant Parmesan. Started off dinner with a specialty cocktail designed on site called the “lumberjack”, primary liquor Courvoisier. So smooth with superb blending of ingredients by the mixologist. Given all the ridiculous Covid restrictions that David and fellow restaurateurs have endured I salute them and am grateful for their individual fortitude.

Prior to the pandemic we traveled extensively abroad as well as along the entire West Coast and this has become my favorite restaurant while in Portland Oregon.

The owner David has gone to extensive lengths to provide a great and varied Italian menu and extensive wine list, all amazingly well priced! That takes insight, experience, and talent. The indoor decor as well as outdoor dining Covid tenting are quite tastefully designed and all of the tents are heated .

The manager Bailey does a great job of balancing everything and runs a “tight ship” restaurant. Our favorite server Jemma is fabulous with a great personality and is extremely knowledgeable about food and drink.

Last night I dined late and closed the restaurant which allowed me to meet and greet with the two fabulous chefs, Mario and Jose.
What a team!

If you live in Portland or are visiting, you have to check this place out…

PS i despise traffic so I always wait till after rush-hour and try to book a reservation after 630 at night.

My husband and I loved coming to Brooklyn Trattoria before COVID and was so glad to be able to dine in again.

David did an amazing job at setting up the Brookstone rooms. They were cozy, quiet and romantic. The ambiance was perfect. With dim lighting, candles on the table and a cozy heater, it was a very enjoyable experience. If the Brookstone room isn't for you, they do have tables for dining in the restaurant as well!

The food was amazing as always. David and Team was very accomodating, personable, caring of our needs and made us feel welcomed and special.

We can't wait for our next visit!

Thank you David and Team!

We looked forward to a good meal based on a previous dining experience at the Brooklyn. Unfortunately our service was nearly non-existent, with poor attention to detail. Our iced teas were never refilled, nor was our water until we asked a bus boy. The appetizer and main courses were quite bland and not what you would expect for the price. The cheese on one of the meals was rubbery and the short rib other was stringy and surprisingly not tender to the fork. Maybe the kitchen was having a tough night. The bread was good. We had fun as a couple being out together, but that was in spite of the meal experience.

From the start to the finish, this was the perfect way to ease back into enjoying eating out again. David checked in before our dinner to see if they can do anything to make the evening special. We felt very taken cared of from that message. We were pleasantly surprised that the tent is your own personal tent— like a winter cabana!) With ambient lights and heater! What a treat! We felt so safe to take off our masks. Food was fantastic— had the calamari and polenta cakes for antipasti and those are clear winners! Salmon, vodka pasta, chicken sausage pasta and osso bucco were main, super yummy! The bread, to die for! Service— super excellent! We were making plans to come back already while still having dinner last night! Definitely a must go to place. Also i was super impressed that they checked how our experience was the day after! Talk about really caring about what your customers think! We will definitely be a loyal customer.

It's hard to imagine the ambience to be 5 star during a pandemic when you're dining outside in a tent, but it was! Brooklyn had decorated our dining pod so adorable with string lights, candles and a nice warm heater. This service was stellar and the food was amazing. We started off with a unique craft cocktail -a rosemary grapefruit spritzer - that was out of this world. For dinner, we enjoyed the brussels sprouts, the Mediterranean salad and a salmon dish that was to die for! We also took advantage of the Tue night 1/2 price wine glasses :) Such a wide selection! Overall our experience was fantastic, and we look forward to returning there SOON!

We sat outside in our own personal tent. This was awesome at first because we had our own little space. It quickly became annoying as there were tons of teenagers playing and running by the tent. It just became unenjoyable. Our server forgot about us a few times and we almost had to go inside to find someone to order drinks and appetizers from. The food was ok. We loved the crab cake but the short ribs were tough and the lamb osso bucco needed a lot more seasoning. The wine was great.

We would probably go back one more time just to give it one more chance but it wasn't our favorite experience by far.

It was amazing to walk into a restaurant in Oregon, that reminded us of being back in New York. We loved the outside tents with twinkly lights and heaters, which were so inviting, lovely, and during these times, made us feel incredibly safe. The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. The proprietor came in to ensure that we were happy with everything, and that added such a lovely touch. We will definitely be coming back.

The staff is always so nice and accommodating. They will make any adjustment to your food that they are able to do. Drinks are very good. Gemma knows what she is doing behind the bar. Dave the owner is almost always there, very kind and social and always has off menu/option tips. We seem to eat up hear monthly as we have family in Claremont and this makes it so easy. We prefer sitting inside rather than the tents outside as they can be a bit noisy but it’s not a showstopper either way. They just put in 2 small enclosed tables outside (Brownstones) with solid walls and slider doors for a more private/exclusive dining experience. We can’t wait to try them out.

My wife and I had a fantastic date night here. They were very good about being safe due to Covid, with individual outdoor eating areas that were even heated inside in case it got too cold!

The food & drinks were excellent as well, with plenty of allergen friendly options.
