Some of the smallest oysters I've ever seen, and the pate was pretty tasteless. However, the meats in the entrees were delicious!

Food was on point and the service was spectacular! My two young kiddos tried everything, but the take away for them was the kids menu grilled cheese- the “best they ever had!” Definitely a kiddo friendly location. For the adults, the crudo, pigs head, salads and 8 hams around the world started the lovely meal. The cocktails were also on point. What a gem that all should try!

Food was good, but at almost 3 hours total for dinner, by the end we rushed through dessert and probably didn’t appreciate it as much as we could have.

The parking is impossible and expensive. So expensive cocktails on top of that leave a bad taste in your mouth even if the food is extraordinary. The food is good but not amazing.

Maybe my first every written negative review with 40k plus Open Table points. Disappointed! 1.5 hours to receive meals 3 great meals one very overdone chops, it happens. Then it went bad, entirely the servers responsibility. Handled it horribly. Said I was done, and we would just move on. 15 minutes later brought another plate out that was not requested the rest of the party was done and all dishes cleared. Made it very uncomfortable. The server never once apologized. In fact after everything just dropped the dessert menu by as if nothing ever happened. Once again, it happens too bad the server allowed it become such a bad experience that here I am writing a review. Checking reviews, it seems to be a theme 1 or 5

The food was amazing. The waitstaff seemed to be a bit overwhelmed, but were gracious,
Knowledgeable, and engaging.

The space is rustic with a bit of funkiness.

Burger is one of the best. Interesting menu and some great cocktails. It is a hotel restaurant nearly succeeding at being a Portland foodie restaurant.

Our server was bad. It was not that he made a huge mistake and did not put our order in, it was how he handled everything after he admitted that happens. I had to flag him down to get him to communicate with us about what was going on. I think a good restaurant teaches their people how to deal with mistakes, because they certainly happen in a restaurant setting. It is inevitable. The burger and restaurant are too good to let that kind of stuff happen.

I was in a quest for Oysters while I was there and this place was down the street from my hotel.
The Oysters were good, a little pricey but apparently inline for the area, but all were from the East Coast.
The hostess was really great and my waitress fantastic. My only only real knock was the prices.

The server was slow to deliver drinks, it took 45 minutes for half of our party to get drinks (3 of which were diet cokes, one hot tea and one decaf latte). The diet cokes are $5 each and 8.5 oz. the decaf latte never came, and an hour after it was ordered the server came to tell my friend they were out of decaf and couldn't make it, and that she would take it off the bill (that $10 latte was on our bill, when we asked our server she said her manager needed to delete it, she had told us 40 minutes prior that she would have it taken off the bill). The server said the bartender was slammed with drinks, I went to check and found him chatting with one of 6 people sitting at the bar and not making a single drink. At least 3 of us had to track down the server multiple times. The food came out cold. Our server was rude, inattentive and clearly didn't want to be there.

This was supposed to be a lovely birthday brunch for our good friend and not one of us will be back. I hope this was just an off day for them, but this is by far the worst service I've ever experienced. I am so disappointed and would not recommend going here.

Service and food was excellent! Waitress realized we were going to a show and had a tight timeline so she got the dinner and check to us accordingly. Tables were a little too close to each other, really the only negative.

Will definitely recommend and come again.

Thx!

Service was great..drinks very good. It wasn’t busy so that’s not surprising. Food left much to be desired. This was second trip. First was very good. Tonight the pasta was tasteless, lacking salt. Steak was ok but was not salted at all. Steak came with cold onion rings. Very disappointing.

Made a reservation, received a confirmation, but when we arrived they could not seat us. Said the entire restaurant was booked-though we had a reservation!! And it was 5:00 and empty! We went to the bar while the hostess talked to the manager, but he did not come over until we asked the bar server to check again. Waited again, no manager, we settled our bar tab, then he finally showed up and said they could not honor our reservation. No accommodations made, very disappointed. I understand things happen but they did not seem too upset about turning us away. The manager, Jeff, did not offer anything to encourage us to return.

The whole experience was pretty so-so. The waitress seemed uninterested. There was little commitment to service, except for the bus help. The food took a long time to come, and was also so-so. We wanted a nice meal before the Theater, but I wouldn't recommend this place. Maybe not a bad place to go if you were staying at the hotel and didn't have anything else to do, for a while.

The food was good. Perhaps more descriptions for the menu items. The service was good until we needed to check out and then the waitress was no where to be found. We couldn’t order dessert due to her being on the other side of the restaurant for most of the end of the meal.

The noise level is quite loud

We went for our first visit, out of curiosity. There were some good reviews on TripAdvisor, but we usually avoid downtown Portland. This time we were looking for dinner before going to the Keller, so decided to try it. Portland has a lot of very good to fantastic places to eat, and we found this to be one of the best we have had anywhere.
We had the signature devilled eggs. Devilled eggs are not just devilled eggs, these were unbelievably good. We ordered the wild mushrooms. Again, usually mushrooms are just mushrooms. These were elevated to the point that they were my wife's favorite bites.
We ordered the buttermilk fried rabbit for two. I am not a big fan of rabbit. My wife had not had rabbit before, so we tried it. Best decision we have made in a long time. The rabbit was perfectly cooked and seasoned. It tasted better than any other rabbit or chicken I have evre had, and the harissa carrot puree that went with it just took it over the top.
We have a new favorite restaurant!

The food was great, the service was fair. The issue I had was the loud live music in the Hotel lobby competing with the load music on the speakers in the restaurant. It was very uncomfortable trying to eat and have a conversation with two different types of music blaring. I asked the manager to turn down the house music, but to no avail.

Food, drinks & service are outstanding. Our server was well-versed on the menu and restaurant history.

Noise level was quite high and tables are close together so you are subject to the conversations of those around you.

I've been here before for lunch and cocktails, but dinner service this night was missing. The service was spotty and seemed put out that half our party didn't want to order drinks right away. Took a long time to get her to come back. Drinks were average this night. Burgers were under seasoned. However, the spaghettini with herbs and egg was spot on, amazing, and perfectly cooked.

The decor was confusing. Dark wood and mood lighting alongside a neon sign of a clam drinking beer that's straight out of family guy. Plus the grotesque stuffed jackrabbit? Unpleasant to look at.

The food and drinks, but especially the drinks are comically overpriced. The bacon chop was thoroughly disappointing. About 40% of it was an unrendered and inedible fat cap. The local fish was tasty but the serving size difference between that dish and the bacon chop was staggering. I could barely finish my chop and didn't even touch the sides in my dish while my sister and brother were left wanting more after they had a salad, split the duck fat cauliflower, and had a fish entree each.

Will not be returning. Look elsewhere for a satisfying meal in downtown.

The food was really delicious and beautiful to look at. Overall great experience. This was the third time I have dined here and the service just takes forever so plan ahead for a 2 hour experience. Would not recommend going if you had strict plans after. Drinks and appetizers were amazing! Highly recommend if you have a group or could keep the conversation going for a solid couple of hours!

We had a nice but unremarkable dinner at Jackrabbit on New Year’s Eve. Given the holiday, the service was surprisingly well paced and our server was very pleasant. The food was good but somewhat bland in taste and appearance. The limited styles of seating (high bar tables or long community tables) seem incongruous with the relatively high prices. The $35 corkage fee for our wine was the highest we have seen at any restaurant in the Portland metro area - disproportionately high for a restaurant of this mid-level.
