Italian
Grand Amari is a traditional Italian dining destination inspired by the food traditions of Italy, fine Italian wine, and amaro. We are working with pasture raised proteins, seasonal local organic produce, and highlighting the quality of handmade products. Simplicity and care in our approach is key. Start your evening off by perusing our extensive wine list while enjoying a platter of scallop crudo with a glass of grower Champagne. Follow that with our delicate handmade agnolotti or squid ink bucatini, then indulge in grass fed bistecca alla fiorentina or salt crusted branzino. Don't forget to get a bottle of Barolo with your bistecca! Wrap up your dinner with an array of Italian desserts and our indulgent amaro cart and menu.

    Food and drinks are amazing! I only wish the pasta portions were a bit larger, but I’m thinking you are meant to order more food or at least one item from each course listed on the menu to make a more complete meal. You must have the focaccia! We dined in the dining room, but since they have the same food menus available in the Little Bitter Bar, it would be fun to dine there next time. It’s great to know there are options depending on if you want a more quiet or lively experience depending on your party. Will go back!

    This was my second time dining here. We enjoyed the food and cocktails . I did end up having to send my meat dish bAck as it was undercooked Pork. The server made that easy but it took along time for the second dish to come back out. Nice place and it is Pricey.

    The food is excellent without being over the top; nobody is adding truffle oil to your steak or some other silliness. There are some nice original touches (eg the excellent carrot salad has a dusting of crushed pistachio) but the chef is not trying too hard and what he does just works. The waiters are knowledgeable but not show-off-y, and they bring samples of interesting things you asked about (eg some unusual amaro that I never heard off). And the steak and $1 martini is a great deal! It’s not our first time and we’ll come back again.

    The menu looked good on line, with interesting flavors and varied options. Unfortunately, delivery of courses was uneven; the hot food was just warm; and our main pasta dish did not have much flavor at all. And was lukewarm. Our waiter asked if he could box up what we didn’t eat - we said ‘no’.

    The entire experience was very pleasant. A tight menu of small plates meant for sharing was fun for our table of 8. We ordered most everything with no disappointments. If I had to pick something to critique I would say I wasn’t impressed with the tiramisu. Cocktails were on point and the amaro cart at the end was a great twist. Not busy on a Tuesday evening so the place was nice and quiet. The service was exceptional. Will return!

    1st timer. Reviews were great. Rainy day in the PNW, restaurant is located in the Grand Hotel. Area isn't the best, parking slim to none in the rain, but valet option was great! Arrived to an empty restaurant (resy at 8pm) BUT older hotel was quaint and very inviting. Staff was almost a one man show but was able to accommodate 3 other parties while we were there. Wait time was normal for getting food, drinks and everything in between. Most of the food had great flavors and service were good. We will probably not be back but was a good experience to try a new restaurant.

    Overall a good experience. The food was very good. The wait staff was a little too serious. We went there during the frigid, cold, pending snowstorm so very few people were there. They actually ended up moving us because an unexpected large party did show up. They comped our drinks and dessert for the inconvenience. I liked it but can't say it was the best experience I ever had but still glad we tried it.

    We love, love, love this restaurant! We have gone at least 7 times since it opened. the arancini is the best, the crudo and tuna appetizers were delicious. We love the radicchio salad. The pasta (pappardelle) was delicious, but we were really disappointed in the chicken and the porchetta was a bit overcooked and fatty. Dessert was fantastic and service is great. We will be back; I think the kitchen is still struggling a bit with the menu. We love the space and we want this restaurant to kill it! Well not so much that we cant get in : )

    We love food! Grand Amari was on my list of places to go since they opened. Definitely some of the best Italian food we’ve had. My husband said it was better than the food in Rome. We expected the restaurant to have more people dining based on how amazing their menu is. This restaurant’s quality of food and level of service was top notch! My only recommendation is to market this restaurant better so more people can enjoy their amazing food. This place needs serious recognition. We will be back for sure!

    We had the Thanksgiving special, consisting of a charcuterie plate, salad, osso bucco for the main course and desserts. The items on the antipasti plate were delicious and unique (fried octopus, crostini, etc.). The osso bucco was delectable, the meat falling of the bone and tender. The desserts were and apple tartini, stuffed pear and tiramisu, all excellent. Our waiter was knowledgeable and recommended some fine choices for wines to accompany the meal.

    We stayed at the Grand Stark partially because I was intrigued by Grand Amari and Little Bitter Bar. As expected, they carry an amazing selection of amari. The food was fantastic as well, our paperdelle noodles were some of the best i've ever had. Our server, his name i cannot remember unfortunately, was a wealth of knowledge regarding amari. He seemingly knew details about every bottle they carried, shared his favorites with us (and his list of bad cocktail names haha!) and ultimately provided such hospitable service, I will come back anytime i'm in Portland. Thank you!

    Very cool place. Great food, atmosphere, awesome service. Went for a business dinner with colleagues from various countries and everyone loved the experience. A bit pricey but not unreasonable. Would be happy to go again. Everything was delicious.

    Grand Amari is not your run of the mill Italian restaurant. You may not know any of the wines on the list, but your waiter will ask what you like and guide you to the perfect Italian bottle. You do recognize focaccia, but you may never had it as good as this. All the dishes we ordered had outstanding flavors, the kind of thing you'd like to duplicate at home, but know that you probably couldn't. Quiet enough for a date night and comfortable enough to settle in for a great meal. Great food. Great service. What's not to like?

    Hello Hank! Thank you so much for your wonderful and beautifully written review. Looking forward to having you and your date back for another delicious meal. Best, Michael, General Manager

    I found the food to be just okay but nothing outstanding or creative. My tastebuds were not excited but more neutral. Just didn’t wow me. Service and ambiance was great! I may try again to see if things change. They’ve only been open for 7 months.
    Grand AmariResponded on October 31, 2023
    Hello, thank you for your visit and for taking time to write your review.

I hope to have you in again for the same excellent flavor experience we love to give. Best, Michael, General Manager
