Food is usually outstanding. This time it was flavorless. We had to add salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Very disappointed.

First time experience. Husband and I loved it. Had a wonderful Paloma made by the owner himself (David), and the polenta cakes, ribeye, and Chicken Madeira were fabulous. Highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back.

Food is delicious
Good variety of drinks and wine
Service was okay did have to ask multiple times for the same item and remind that I ordered a drink but appetizers came out super fast and the wait for our meals also was fairly quick
They did write a card and provide a few roses in a empty wine bottle which was a very cute touch for our anniversary and we got a free dessert so they did still deserve 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

YUM! If the stuffed salmon is on the menu (current special) and you like salmon + all the most delicious additions I highly recommend. It always feels like a special occasion here...even on a Wednesday night.

It's never a good thing when your appetizer arrives before your glass of wine and lemonade. It seems like the waitstaff was a little off. The owner was behind the bar making tastings and walking around the room with them, so that may be a little distracting to the bartender. Also, do not order the cannoli. It was dry and sugary and clearly the person making them had never had a good one. The owner was very quick to take it off our bill however when he saw my frownie face when he strolled by and asked how it tasted. Overall, the evening was ok but I don't think we'll be going back.

The lasagna was only OK this trip, generally, I'm always very impressed with anything I order. The Misticanza salad was lacking the golden raisins. I'm not trying to be overly critical - I think there are new people in the kitchen and in the prep area and things aren't totally in synch with them yet. I think things are about a 4.5 out of 5 for the moment. Still really great!

My family and I went here for a special occasion and boy it did NOT disappoint. Everything was amazing. The drinks, the food, the atmosphere, and the staff were all fabulous. For dessert they even wrote a sweet message in chocolate syrup on the plate… so thoughtful. This is hospitality at its finest. Would recommend to anyone and everyone in the Portland area looking for a great dinner! CHEFS KISS

It’s my second time back at Brooklyn Trattoria dining alfresco in 2021 since the beginning of OR re-opening related to the Covid pandemic.
Since it’s initial opening, I probably have dined at BT 20+ times.
My impression is that overall the quality of food has progressively gotten better during the years as well as the wine selection .
Last night my wife you had her favorite entree which is the salmon which is always cooked to perfection and not dry served on top of a bed of lightly sautéed kale& squash . For the first time I tried one of the new steak selections and went big time for the blackened Wagyu top sirloin which blew my mind it was so good. The chefs José and Mario continue to make a great team in the kitchen. The manager and owner David came by and chatted as usual which is always a fun event. Brooklyn trattoria remains my favorite restaurant in greater metropolitan Portland .

What a wonderful experience!
The staff was very kind, knowledgeable, and helpful.
The food was awesome… really enjoyed everything we ordered, and the owner David shared a great recommendation that was perfect!
Outside seating was quiet and relaxing.
Will absolutely go back again, and next time try a Paloma!

If you are looking for a romantic place to enjoy dinner - then this is the place! Be sure to reserve one of their private Brownstone tables and you'll feel like you are dining in your own private restaurant. I love their custom cocktails (David's Old Fashioned is my favorite). Their Chicken Piccata is fabulous - but I have a difficult time not ordering one of their yummy pastas. I never have room for dessert so I can't help you out there. Don't hesitate to go with an outdoor table because they are all in individual covered tents with super heaters (even if you are the chilly type!) I highly recommend this restaurant!

Maybe it the aftermath of the Covid , and the fact that not everyone is back to work yet, but the service was not what we had hoped. The four of us felt neglected. One of our party had to wait for his meal due to a mix-up on his order. The tables weren't bused after each course which made it crowded on the table. We had to ask for a wine menu. And no dessert menu or suggestions were offered, just the bill.
In fairness, the waitress did deduct for the mix-up on the parties ' order.
This was my second dining at BT; my first time was solo 3-4 months after they first opened. Then, the food and service was about the same. Someone should spend some time training the wait-staff how to serve.

Nice outdoor tents. Staff were courteous. Food was ok. Calamari was good. Lightly battered and crispy yet tender. The mix of olives and sun dried tomatoes was nice! Truffle fries had good flavor but were a bit overdone. Mediterranean Salad was missing artichokes. Mushrooms on top of crab ravioli was an odd pairing. We were there for a birthday and the server didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert?

This was my wife's and my first dine-in dinner since the pandemic began last year. I had requested on Open Table to be seated inside but on arrival we were taken to one of their outside tents. It was private, the food was fabulous and the service staff were wonderful but the wind picked up outside and our tent was billowing about as we were trying to finish our dinners. This is the reason why my review was "Very Good" instead of excellent.

Honestly, average. Penne Alla vodka, something not right about the sauce but otherwise ok. Truffle fries undercooked but at least you could taste the truffle oil. Service from someone who might have been working his first shift as a server. Meh. At least the bottle of wine was priced reasonably. It was a haul to the suburbs for this one, better options in Portland proper. Wouldn't return most likely.

Been here a few times, and have been blown away every time! Food is excellent, service is great, and the atmosphere is top notch. We were seated in the Brownstone room which are these little romantic out of the way tables with great lighting.

Definitely going to continue coming here time and time again !
