My family always enjoyed Le Pigeon, but sadly I was very disappointed in Little Bird.
My guest said the fried trouts sauce overpowered it. My fish of the day had very little flavor, although it was perfectly cooked. We were also unimpressed with the mushroom soup. My drink on the other hand was very delightful.
We loved Little Bird. Had dinner at 7 pm on Friday. Loved the beet salad (which didn't have any greens!), squash crepes (very inventive and delicious) and the fried chicken (again very inventive). Split the three dishes for two of us. Had the "root beer" chocolate cake and I especially loved the accompanying toasted meringue. Service was great. Not too noisy. We will definitely return.
Exceptional food and Service!. Very European style weth close but comfortable seating. The service was knowledgeable and efficient without making you feel at all rushed.
Little Bird truly feels like a French bistro, and the kitchen is creative. There's always a great selection of mollusks to try, and the Prix Fixe is typically a tasty value.
Sadly, my wife and I were deeply disappointed with our time at Little Bird. We flew into Portland for a getaway weekend and after researching the best restaurants we settled on Little Bird. We had enjoyed a wonderful meal at Le Pigeon several years before and anticipated a similar experience. I'm sorry but maybe I don't get the recent grungy hipster vibe but if Little Bird represents it "you can have it!". For the upscale price, you get close to dive bar with cutlery. It was dark and dank and uninteresting. My hanger steak was just the same, dark and dank and smothered in a thick sauce that was supposed to taste like I don't know what but what came to mind was "Chalk!" Both in flavor and texture. My wife tried the cassoulet with duck confit and that had great flavor and we both enjoyed it. I assure you my wife has whipped up a bean soup that tastes as good or better. Maybe I am spoiled by a wife that has great culinary skills and I just can't appreciate truly delicious food because I experience it on a regular basis at home. The service was fine. Wait staff were friendly but towards the end of our meal our waitress disappeared and we finally had to ask another staff member to find her so we could conclude our visit.
I rarely, if ever, write reviews but our deep disappointment has prompted me to spend some time to share our experience.
One of our favorites in Portland. It is as good f you are transported to France yet still in the City of Roses!
From the appetizers to the dessert this meal was fabulous. Crepes, endive salad, fried chicken co qu vin, and fish were all prepared perfectly. Rarely does a restaurant prepare every course to perfection but tonight Little Bird delivered! Tables are close to one another just like in a Parisian bistro which some people might find uncomfortable.
If I lived in the city I would come here for Cassoulet every week!
Overall great food and service. We were little disappointed with trout dressing- it didn’t taste very good. We are planning to return to try other authentic French cuisine.
Little Bird was in my top five Portland restaurants. Flavor, ambiance and consistency helped balance the prices. This time, food was very mediocre having little flavor. As it was a good friend's birthday, we ordered the desserts. He had the bon bons which he described and tasting of floor wax. I tried it and thought it tasted of turpentine. I had the passionfruit cake which was a flavorless as a sheet cake from Albertson's. The cost of the dinner set me back 170.00. I felt cheated and I won't be going back anytime soon. A shame. Perhaps it was an off night.
