    The food was very good. We had a large group and shared the entire menu for 2 (x6) so that we could try everything, and there were some real standouts including the salmon, carrots, birria, and the desserts. There were even more dishes, so it was a lot of food! There was a little mix up with our reservation and it was accidentally cancelled. While we were able to be accommodated, it may have impacted service a little bit as there were some lulls/slow service periods. The and staff did a nice job overall. My only real complaint is that they have limited alcoholic drink options and will not serve the full list of drinks from the bar, Comala, next door. Comala had amazing drinks, and it is definitely worth a stop before or after dining at De Noche.

    In Portland for the NCAA women’s basketball tournament. De Noche was the best restaurant experience we had while visiting. Our party of 5 ordered everything in the menu including 3 deserts. All of the dishes were fantastic. Our favorites were the roasted/carmelized carrots and the mushroom - bean sopa. The staff were excellent in explaining each menu item. There were no surprises except we were blown away by the inventiveness of the dishes, the flavor and presentations.

    The sopa was wonderful, as were the two entrees - short ribs and chicken. Complex and interesting spicing. It was a little chilly by the window and I thought the portions could have been a tiny bit bigger - chicken (leg/thigh) was outweighed by the potato side. It would be nice to have a side option of a green vegetable to add to the meal. Would fully recommend this restaurant.

    We had the most wonderful experience at De Noche last night! The food was so brilliant and expertly crafted. It was beautiful and delicious (and so were the cocktails and mocktails!) The service was fantastic, the waiters were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The atmosphere was definitely intimate and cozy. We all absolutely loved this little gem and are telling everyone we know that it's a must-go!! Bravo.

We got the tasting menu with wine pairings made by Miguel, the sommelier, which elevated the meal into a whole different universe. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

    Phenomenal selection of small and larger plates. The sopa and scallops (images attached) that I had were incredible in their presentation and taste. My partner had the torta and quesadilla, which were similarly unique and extraordinarily flavorful. A small but select wine list highlights Mexican wines, the quality of which deserve to be elevated. Prices are on the high side, but it's hard to argue with the overall experience--i.e. the value is there!

    The food was excellent with great flavored sauces. The service was good. It would have been nice to have our tapa plates changed between courses. The wine price per glass was not told to us and ended up costing 50% more than the ones on the menu. The server should have told us.

    Food was good / okay but didn’t warrant the price . Drink was late arriving to the table and made hastily, unbalanced . I should have the ordered a shot of mezcal instead of the mixed drink . Didn’t feel welcomed. I would have given the place a second chance but the customer service didn’t give a good vibe . Too bad . Place has potential.

    So many positives ! Our De Noche experience composed a perfect balance for a relaxed , exciting and delicious experience . We enjoyed the tasting menu and were not disappointed with any of the dishes . The serving were ample and creative with the beef and Cesar variation being our favorites . The fresh, handmade tortillas are amazing and a perfect consistency to hold all the goodies inside . Not ripping or breaking apart .. just ideal . Everything prepared was served hot, seasoned to perfection and personally prepared. We will be back and next time we will enjoy the beautiful Guadalupe wines on the menu . We brought our on wine but definitely missed the Mexican wine offering . As I say, next time !!

    This is our 2nd time dining at de Noche and the experience was absolutely incredible. Mexican cuisine is one of the most diverse in the world but it is rarely thought of as fine dining. Chef Angel Medina is changing that in Portland, he does an incredible job of showcasing the best of Mexican cuisine while elevating and reinventing familiar dishes and presenting them in a beautiful way. Best way to experience it all is the Chef’s Menu for 2 where you will get a variety of dishes that showcase every part of the Mexican food from soup, salad, mole, birria, etc. all incredibly tasty and well balanced. Overall, one of the best meals I’ve had in Portland and we look forward to our next visit.
