Took our daughter here when she got her masters degree! A memorable evening! We split 3 entrees and a salad, so we could all try each entree. Everything was delicious and executed so well. Finished with their renowned fois gra profiteroles, which I was hesitant to try, but were amazing! Thanks for an unforgettable evening!

Ridiculously expensive, but minimal food. Why would you want to pay so much for so little? The hostess was hostile and weird - why would you employ such a person?

Horrible experience tonight because of the vibrations coming from the above concert venue. Make sure to ask if there is a concert that day before booking at the Pigeon.

This is quite a neighborhood gem. The waiters were attentive, they worked really hard and the chef did a beautiful job adjusting the tasting menu to accommodate for on guest who was lactose intolerant. Kudos to the chef! Their pairings with the white wines were spot on, but their red wine pairings were mediocre. One red smelled like band aid and barnyard and that experience was a bit hard to overcome and put a bit of a damper on the evening. I’d go back for their cuisine, but I’d bring my own wine.

Chris was an excellent low-key, but highly knowledgeable and patient. That was the best part, but our dinner was excellent as well. For a nonalcoholic treat, try the fantastic homemade kombucha. Omg it was so good! Our scallops and pork belly starter was a knockout, an incredible pairing of taste. Two of us had a Moroccan inspired monkfish which was well balanced and expertly cooked. The ravioli was delicious, and even my very difficult mother with many food allergies was very happy with her burger. Some inventive desserts completed our meal. We definitely recommend!

We enjoyed the chef’s selection of five courses. Every single one was outstanding. The limited availability of only three pre-mixed cocktails was the only downside to an incredible evening.

We went to Le Pigeon for the first time on what for most people was a typical Thursday night. It was our anniversary, and we went anticipating a special meal. It turned out to be one the most extraordinary dining experiences either of us have had. We both realized the hamachi crudo was the most flavourful and refined dish we've eaten in Portland.

Small restaurant that seats about 30. You can order from the menu or there is a 5 & 7 course tasting menu. Wine pairings are offered as well. Chose tasting menu & enjoyed every dish. The waiters were attentive & very knowledgeable about the wine pairings. Very enjoyable night & I highly recommend Le Pigeon!

Our group of 4 enjoyed the seven course tasting menu featuring foie, truffles, duck, squab and a foie profiterole dessert that was to die for. A couple of the dishes were suprisingly spicey, but overall everything was excellent. Our server was genuine and attentive but anyone who stopped by our table was equally gracious and informative. There is something for everyone on the wine list. Be advised that they only offer 3 cocktails, there are no “full bar” selections. That said, we opted for the house martini and it was outstanding. Seating is tight and so is parking so plan accordingly. Good tasting menus are a rarity in PDX but this one is a must do.

Came for anniversary dinner. 1st time. We are nowhere close to foodies so a restaurant like Le Pigeon is a bit of an adventure for us. We had a number of questions not knowing what things were on the menu and the waiter was very nice about it. Good beer and wine selection. Wife had the ramen to start, I had the butter lettuce salad. Both were amazing in taste in presentation. For dinner, wife had chicken and I had fish special of black cod. Again, the tastes were amazing how they mixed together different elements to create a delicious unique taste. Both were cooked perfectly. Highly recommend even if your food tastes aren't usually venturesome.

Our waiter, Kevin, did everything he could to accommodate our needs. One in our party was not feeling up to par and he managed to help us have a great dining experience with food that was delicious, even though not quite as creative as it might be had we not had any stomach issues. Such a delightful experience. We would definitely go again!

Best meal I’ve had all year. Service was excellent—attentive, knowledgeable and accommodating without being overbearing. The food is thoughtful and delicious with great care being taken to balance all the big flavor personalities they deliver on each plate. Each dish was a knockout. Thanks to the entire Le Pigeon team for a truly memorable evening.

We’ve come back to Le Pigeon several times hoping to rediscover some culinary magic, but it’s just not there. The pork and porcini churros were a nice surprise, but too many of the other dishes were just too complex and heavy- sometimes a simple touch is best.
