La Moule exceeded my expectations! Food and drinks were exceptional. Service was great, attentive and just the right amount. We got great recommendations of wine to pair with our meals and small dishes to try alongside our entree. Dessert was both beautiful and delicious. Covered patio was comfortable on a HOT day. The manager stopped by and was welcoming. We went to celebrate my birthday and haven’t dined out much in the past 1.5 years. It was a real treat and felt safe and well planned!

So great to be back at one of our favorite Portland restaurants. The butter lettuce salad, Moules marinier & daquiri were just as delicious as I remembered. Love this place.

The food was fantastic. Our servers were all very attentive, it seemed all the servers were helping each other and happy to do so. We went on a hot day so inside was warm and a bit noisy, it was actually more pleasant outside in the shade and with a breeze. Everyone tries to keep cool inside but with this heat its hard. Would go again

Some of the best pommes frites in Portland - cook to perfection, well spiced and served with a tasty aioli. The Moules were as remembered, very good in a wonderful sauce. Octopus Croquettes were well prepared, the sauce of cucumbers, yogurt and dill was tasty, but I really didn't taste the octopus. With a glass of wine for my spouse and a pint of pilsner for me the bill was a very fair $84.00. My only complaint is that the music was too loud for my elderly eats. We will return, but try to sit further away from the speakers.

Would have been five stars but they didn't have any Belgium beers on tap and certain pre COVID-19 items were missing from the menu.

Best burger in town! Great side salad with the burger. Tried the ginger-lime cocktail, the Requeue Mule, very refreshing for a warm day! Service is always friendly, helpful and efficient! Looking forward to our next visit!

the scallops were wonderful, loved the whitefish dip, although it was a little bit too salty. The pome frites were excellent and overall, we were happy with the experience. I thought the music was a little bit loud. Our server was terrific.

We were glad to be able to return to La Moule, but somewhat disappointed that the menu has been reduced due to reopening after Covid-19 and a lack of staff. The food was as good as ever. We look forward to returning again when things return to what they used to be. This means a better selection of Belgian draft beers and the happy hour menu which included oysters and smaller portions of moules and frites.

I had a reservation for 3 at 6pm. We showed up half an hour early with 5 people and they sat us immediately at an outdoor table. A refreshing experience from the start. Despite the described limited kitchen staff at the restaurant by the server we received excellent service. We ordered family style so all the plates came out in a steady stream which is a wonderful experience since we ordered so much for 5 people that if feels like you're constantly being surprised when something new arrives at the table.

Everything was delicious, from the mussels to the scallops, the branzino to the chicken liver mousse. The drink orders always came out just in the nick of time. All staff were friendly and inviting. I have been before, and will certainly go again. Can't wait for the return of oysters!

Ssssssshhhhh... perfect neighborhood gem. Thoughtful, tight seasonal menu with French flair. Each starter and main dish in our party of 4 was well prepared and savoured. Our coctails were inventive using novel flavor profiles and several different shapes and sizes of ice which accentuated the look and sippable flavors of each drink. Will keep on our favorites list when visiting Portland.

We were a party of four dining together for the first time since March 2020. LaMoule was perfect! Our server was delightful, and service was excellent! The cocktails were tasty, and the food was wonderful, as always. We had the mussels marinier, served with a tasty baguette - be sure to order an extra baguette to sop up the beautiful broth. We also had the snow peas salad with mint, sheep's cheese and hazelnuts, and the sprouting cauliflower dish - excellent!! Mains were the whole roasted branzino with spring vegetables, which was beautiful, and the oyster mushroom and summer squash brik (a stuffed pastry "purse" in this instance), which was creative and delicious. We highly recommend LaMoule for any occasion. Can't wait to return!

Due to covid the menu was limited as was the vodka selection at the bar. It was hot inside with no air conditioning, and an open kitchen concept.

Sadly the food was not as delicious as my past experience here.
The server was friendly but I think he was early on as appetizer plates and old glasses sat on the table for a while.

This place is an absolute gem. The music was perfectly curated to the decor and ambiance. The food was ridiculously tasty and Tim our server was awesome. We wanted for nothing. When we had an empty beverage, he was right there to refill it. They also are clearly on the “Team work makes the dream work” page. Everyone worked together delivering drinks and clearing our dishes. We LOVED this place!!!!
