    Really amazing food! Flew in from LA just to dry this unique Mexican cuisine experience. The quality of the ingredients shines and so does the care that they put into making it. Everything’s fresh and the food is filling so come hungry !

    A truly amazing dining experience. Besides being delicious, the food was fun and exciting. The staff was friendly and professional. 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.

    The ambiance was nice, service was excellent. The staff was very passionate about their food, it just wasn’t to our liking. We had the chef’s tasting for two for $145. I wish we would have been able to see the menu online beforehand, although I think it changes seasonally.

    We chose the tasting menu for two and we're glad we did. Every dish was delicious. The roasted Kalette Ensalade had a sauce that was so full of spicy goodness I wanted to lick the plate. The Tetela with its black bean filling in a tender masa triangle is something I could eat every day. I love sunchokes, so having them as a topping made this dish even more amazing. I'm usually not a fan of raw fish, but the tostada kampachi was so complex and full of fresh ingredients that I enjoyed every bite. The absolute superstar of the meal was the Mole scallops with romanesco. The scallops were seared to perfection. Be sure to use the homemade corn tortillas to get every last bit of sauce. We will definitely eat here again! Chef Dani uses seasonal ingredients and the menu changes each week. If you want authentic elevated Mexican food in a cozy environment with fresh seasonal ingredients, this is the place to go. I highly recommend it!
