We had an excellent time at Jing Yan! I booked the reservation for my partner's birthday and Jing Yan was very accommodating. We had lovely table with a view of the grill and the server brought us two glasses of delicious non-alcoholic "champagne" with a happy birthday card.
The cocktails were creative, delicious, and very pretty. The food menu included both staples of the cuisine and creative dishes. We had a cucumber and seaweed salad with a fantastic dressing. For mains, I had a poké bowl with a deliciously tangy sauce and the perfect ratio of fish to veggies to rice. My partner had a very hearty and rich Korean spaghetti.
Our server offered excellent recommendations and was very friendly. The courses were perfectly spaced in terms of timing, with just enough time to enjoy our drinks and look forward to the next course before it arrived.
All in all, an excellent experience and we can't wait to go back and try more of their dishes!

Beautiful space that is dimly lit and wonderful ambiance. The food was amazing and seeing the open fire pit where they cook added to the experience. We loved it and will definitely be back.
Additionally the staff were wonderful, everyone wore a mask too. Thank you.

Food was interesting, beautiful presentation, fresh ingredients but not too flavorful. Drinks were also just ok. It's a pretty spot and great location but would consider drinks and apps another time.

This was the perfect restaurant for a cozy pre-theatre dinner. We both enjoyed our appetizer/start of the bok choy and the Korean spaghettis was unlike anything I had ever eaten before, but quite delicious. The waitstaff was very helpful and the ambiance was excellent. If the menu looks good to you, I highly recommend you make a reservation, I do not think you will be disappointed.

The food was great, as it has been on previous dining experiences here. The wine list needs more selections, basically two reds and one white! Need to provide more variety. Price point for wines was low (no complaints), but needed more options.
The table is a bit tight and small, but overall a good atmosphere in the restaurant.

Hello Jim, we apologize for your negative experience with our wine list and our small table space. As an Asian restaurant, our drink menu focuses on hand-craft cocktails and sake selections. With that being said, we do offer three red wines and two white wines (all natural wines) and also offer prosecco. Jing Yan also is a small, neighborhood restaurant and we are sorry we cannot provide a large enough table for you. Sorry again for not giving you the complete dining experience. - Leo Zhang

Highly recommend! We went for dinner to celebrate my sisters 30th birthday and our waitress greeted us with a complimentary champagne toast and a card wishing my sister a happy birthday! All of the drinks were the best we’ve ever had, and the food was just as amazing! For dessert, our waitress brought over a large piece of cake for us to split, also complimentary, and some of the best cake we’ve ever had! Our first experience here was truly amazing. Thanks to the staff for making it a great night!

A cozy, beautiful neighborhood restaurant with a small but varied menu. The ambiance created by the warm red wall and the small wood-burning grill is inviting on a cold night. Delicious grilled shishito peppers!

The ambiance is relaxing, low light nice music. The food on the other hand is off the charts. Best Asian fusion I have had in a long time. The service and staff were prompt and very helpful. If you are in Portland and need a little relaxing spot away from the world with amazing food, this is your place!!

What a lovely dining experience! A delicious and exciting menu, with lots of very accessible items (my husband loved the spicy tuna appetizer) and more adventurous items (as a cook I can't tell you the thrill that goes through me when I see Hamachi collar on a menu!) Perfectly executed. Try to get a table/bar seat that allows you a view of the grillardin, I could sip on my suntory highball and watch her for hours!

Staff was professional, attentive, and friendly, chatting with us about other spots around town that they enjoy both for dining and other activities. Def a new favorite on the east end.

The atmosphere is cozy and warm, the lighting is especially soothing to me! I very much enjoyed the music that was playing and had a great experience dining solo as well as with another person.
The staff is friendly and amazing at what they do!
The food - can't say enough good things! I tried the Grilled Romain and Maitake which as just absolutely incredible, as well as the Grilled Hamachi, and the Lamb Skewers - all were perfect and satisfying. The Spicy Miso Raman is one of the best I've ever tried, large portions, perfect ratios of ingredients and the flavor is outstanding. The Beef Kimchi Raman was so comforting; it had a lovely spice to it, and the addition of kimchi was a welcome burst of added flavor! The beef was cooked perfectly. The hot tea set up was so lovely and elegant - a miniature tea pot filled with Jasmine tea complimented with an adorable little tea cup which was reminiscent of a tea ceremony I once participated in while visiting Beijing many years ago. The owner was so kind!
Jing Yan will be my new go to spot for Ramen and other delicious flavorful food in the area, especially during the winter months. Perfect atmosphere!

Another wonderful Asian restaurant in Portland. Great mixed cocktails, tea like I haven’t had since my last trip to Asia, creative Asian food mixed with various influences. Can’t wait to go back. It’s not large, make sure you make a reservation and be prepared to sit at a banquet.
