This is always a place we take friends from.out of town. The owner, John makes our evening perfect from his wine paring suggestions with his wonderfully prepared food. I cannot wait to go back. I wish he would open a second restaurant on the westside!

Great little place! Will definitely become a favorite of ours. First off, the service is friendly, attentive and awesome! The wine is very good, and they have a great expertise with it. The food is expertly prepared and very very good. I had the duck confit and it was fantastic. Don't miss the cheese bon bon, it is wonderful. The painted hills steak was cooked to perfection, the kale salad a winner! Loved it all. It was a tiny place, so a little tight but added to the quaintness. Great for a date night or dinner with friends!

Second visit, better than ever. Owner and wine expert runs the front of this intimate restaurant. Small but efficient kitchen turns out innovative and tasty dishes using fresh and local seasonal items. Wines are unique and many are sourced from personal relationships with the owner.

I’ve ONLY had great meals here. Been a half dozen times and the place delivers everyone. The service is friendly, attentive, personal, but professional.

Of all the French restaurants in the Portland metro I would say they are in the top tier.

Excellent food. Good value for the quality. Personal service from the owner, who is very knowledgeable about the food and good wine pairings. Small space, but no pressure to turnover tables. Very much a French bistro. A hidden gem.

We had such a cozy evening at C’est Si Bon! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for cozy ambiance and being whisked away for a few hours to France! You have to try their wine flight that they personally choose for you (for only $28/person) that matches every course that is brought to you, they kept coming and the owner is very personable and sells everything so nicely! There’s only like 7 tables on the whole place so it’s very cozy, French music which was great song after great song the while evening! I’m ready to go back already!

This was our first visit here and it was very nice. The restaurant is quite small with about 8 or 10 tables and a few seats at the bar. The menu is brief but with enough to find something one likes. The food is very nicely prepared and presented... its tastes wonderful. The owner was present and served our wine with much knowledge and thought. For a small venue this is quaint and enjoyable. I recommend a try.

This is about the best bistro in Portland. John is a trained sommelier who travels to Europe at least annually. They have a great selection wines and bubbly and excellent food in a nice atmosphere. If you eat like i tend to with a different wine for every course it costs a bit. I end up spending about $150 a person when there. Never stops me from going back though. If one ate and drank sensibly I suppose it would be less but I've never tried it.

Everything about our dinner for four on Saturday evening was elegant, friendly, relaxing, fun and delicious. Paul explained each dish - 6 appetisers and four, highly different entrees make it simple task to decide what to explore at this particular time. The house wines options are excellent and well synchronized with the menu items. Duck and scallops entrees were as tasty as their descriptions, and we all were smart enough - learnt from previous visits - to save space for the amazing meyer lemon creme crepe dessert, complemented with an excellent port.
The efficient and unobtrusive service included two tenor, acapella renditions of opera by one of our wait staff! Another happy and satisfied visit to a restaurant to which we're already planning our next visit. And street parking within a block only added to our delightful experience at C'est si Bon! Bistro...

This small and lively bistro style restaurant. John, the proprietor, it an active part of running everything and is very diligent about interacting with every table. He has spent quite a bit of time and has family in France, so he gives the whole restaurant a very authentic feel. The food and wine are all very good, and a good value. The tables are small and close together, so you may end up chatting with the table next to you. There is also bar seating, which was very lively the night we were there. The open kitchen in the back is really part of the restaurant. The walls are painted dark, again contributing to the small and intimate feeling. But the food is wonderful. So, get ready for a lively, fun night with great food. I highly recommend this place.
