This was my third time dinning at Jackrabbit, the food is amazing! I have loved each time. The service on the other hand has not always been great. I didn't complain the first time we has slow hoping it was just an off night, never had a refill on any drinks including water. The next visit they were very attentive. So I did not hesitate to make reservations a third time. Unfortunately, they did not deliver on service, it took quite awhile to get our order taken, drinks were served but never ask if we wanted another (and we did) and water was never refilled. We skipped dessert as it took so long for them to clear our plates and only allotted 90 mins for lunch. We also were not asked if we would like dessert.

The food is great, if you have the time go, you will be happy you did. Just be prepared to ask for basic service items such as more water.

Another great meal at Jackrabbit! A ‘must eat’ when I’m in the area! Love the 20 for 20 option at lunch!

The atmosphere and service was very good but the bun my guest had for her breakfast sandwich was like a cheap hamburger bun...disappointing. Also, I made a reservation and ended up being seating in the middle of the room at a two/top highboy...not a good location right next to another two/top highboy. We were seated right away so that was good since we had a noon Thorns game to get to after brunch.

We had a family birthday with wide ranging ages. Jackrabbit handled it perfectly. The service was spot on, the food delicious and the atmosphere loads of fun. Delightfully approachable fare, obviously from scratch and very inventive. We'll be back!

I was impressed with the quality of the food and service. I would never have guessed it was a hotel restaurant. I highly recommend ordering family style. We had the 4 pound pin bone steak and a couple sides and it was delicious, perfectly cooked, and 4 of us couldn’t finish it all. Also appreciate they were welcoming even when we showed up with 2 infants in tow.

Ok for farmed raised salmon. Their signature salmon on toast is good by would have liked to see more local products in their menu. Almost everything comes from Washington or elsewhere. Server was overly solicitous and really needed to back off on the touching. Upsold me on poor wine selection and misdelivered a couple of items. Then wouldn’t give me my 1000 pts for the bonus points reservation and I ate and paid for the equivalent of 2 entrees, both Michael the server and her manager are scam artists.

Kind of disappointed yah think?

All the food was spectacular. Comfort food elevated to a higher level. Loco moco often 2 scoops of rice spam egg and gravy. This was sausage kimchi rice cooked with a crispy crust and a mushroom gravy to die for. And the egg was from a duck so it was huge, perfectly cooked. An umami bomb. The confit duck and waffle was served with smoked maple syrup. Almost drank it plain. The salmon platter had 3 types of fish, lox, mousse and trout. Huge portions.
Not the best service, I think our server was new. Sweet but slow. A little pricey but worth every penny.

Great food -- highly recommend the grilled cheese starter (it's unique!). Service was really slow and I asked for a side of mayo that never came, but by the time the person came back we were almost done eating.

We found this restaurant on OpenTable so we took a chance and we were amazed. The food, service, and drinks were exceptional. We were so glad we made our way to this Portland gem.

We had a party of 5: 2 burgers, 3 fried chicken sandwiches. The burger-eaters said they were amazing (and they looked it). Those of us with the chicken did like it but they triggered everyone's pet peeve of super thin chicken breast that only covered about 75% of the bun. It was delicious but I wouldn't order that dish again since it's always a downer when that happens.

Had the brunch menu and the deconstructed salade niçoise was excellent. So many yummy flavors, by far the best I ever ate, Including the south of France! Good decaf coffee too. Dinner was also very nice.

Had a great time here, tried duck liver for the first time which was surprisingly great. Everything was wonderful except the portions were pretty small considering their prices. Loved all the servers/hostess. Wish I remembered their names to mention here but unfortunately don’t

We've been here a few times and the service is always excellent. The various menu items never fail to disappoint, including the pig's head, the ham board, the french onion deviled eggs, and we always love the bread pudding. They do not have dessert coffees, but a decent selection of liqueurs instead. Overall, a favorite place for a nice meal.

Huge fan of Consentino’s Cockscomb. Went for a birthday let the restaurant know ahead of time and the host even mentioned that we’re celebrating a birthday. Restaurant was half empty and birthday wasn’t even acknowledged. As you can see, i have over 30,000 open table points meaning I dine out a lot (also use Amex for dining resos too...). So disappointed by this restaurant.

Also, this is the only negative opentable review I’ve ever done.

Everything from our seasonal appetizer to the entrees, drinks and dessert was delicious. Our server was great and made sure we were well taken care of. I highly recommend the Bacon Chop. Not something I would normally order, but for some reason it really caught my eye as something different. It was spectacular. My only regret is that I didn't take a picture!

We were staying at the Duniway and decided to dine at the Jackrabbit. Service was outstanding! Wonderful explanations of every appetizer and entree option. The menu is very eclectic so you definitely need a thorough description of...everything listed. If you’re a picky eater...choose the hamburger. If you’re adventuresome...this is the restaurant for you! The only real “ding” is the noise level from the bar area carries over to the restaurant. It’s very energetic. But, everyone is having a terrific time. We did too....thanks!

This restaurant has a great vibe and would be great for drinks out for a happy hour.

There were 13 of us, and we came for brunch and we thought the food was good and the ambiance was great, but the service was horrible. The server acted like he was annoyed that we were there from the start, was not attentive at all/hard to find when we needed him, and charged us for an item that never came but was annoyed when we asked him to take it off our bill.

Overall, I would say this is a great date night spot, but not a good option for larger groups.

My spouse and I have made an effort to try as many 'Top Chef' restaurants as possible. Chris Cosentino's Jackrabbit, was another 'off the list.' And it did not disappoint at all.

The menu has variety, in both food and price. We opted to keep it a bit modest, and ordered the burger and the orchiette ragu. Both were amazing. The burger was big. The bun, buttery and appropriate for the burger. House-made pickles and amazing fries. The pasta, tender and flavorful. I practically licked the bowl in an effort to take it all in. The drink options were plentiful, as was the beer selection. We even ordered dessert, an olive oil lemon cake with rhubarb and lemon creme.

The bill was fair, the service excellent and the space was beautiful. All in all, a place definitely worth returning to.

The service could not have been worse. After we placed our order, and we got our food, no one came to check on us. The server walked by several times without even looking our way. I finally flagged her down to ask for a refill on my coffee, water and for another round of drinks.
The restaurant was empty but for two tables for two, a family of four, and a bridal party of six. There were multiple servers and other staff.
The other tables received plenty of attention from our server and other staff.
We, on the other hand, had to fetch our own cocktails from the bar about 10 minutes after the bartender put them in the pass. The hostess refilled my coffee. Another staff person refilled our waters.
As for the food, it tasted fine, but when I order “balsamic braised pork with soft polenta, poached egg, and parmigiano reggiano,” I expect the pork to be the star of the show and the cheese to be visible.
Instead, the plate was covered in polenta, and the pork was a tiny mound in the middle. There was no cheese to be found, save what MIGHT have been in the polenta. The pork was gone in two tiny bites. The egg was over cooked.
After I got up to ask for our check, the hostess brought it to our table and acknowledged that we didn’t seem happy. We described our concerns and she offered to get the manager, because she might make an adjustment. She also acknowledged that she’d seen us fetch our drinks from the bar. We saw the hostess talk to both the server and the manager, however, all the manager did was come to collect our bill and payment. She did not even inquire as to our experience.
Overall, a very bad experience. I do not recommend it at all.

It was just OK for the price. The service was good but one person ordered a pasta dish and they were out of a key ingredient. They offered a substitute but the dish really needed the salt of the missing ingredient. They still charged full price for a plate of noodles with bread crumbs. Save your money and go elsewhere. It was disappointing compared to other times we have gone. Maybe we will try brunch again.
