We used to love this restaurant but in the last year or so it has fallen down in quality. The menu is strange the food quality is poor (like the steak frites dish was very poor quality meat and very tough for $39). The food arrived cold and it took a very long time to get served. Even the wine took forever to arrive leaving us to sit with nothing but water for about a half hour. Went for the last time just to say good-bye to what was a beautiful, wonderful restaurant at one time. Not surprised they are calling it quits. Hopefully their other restaurants will offer better.
So sad it's closing.
Too bad they're closing.
Server was phenomenal, so obsessed with her.. sad it’s closing :( Wish the lights were more dim
I would definitely come back again. Service was a bit slow but it was busy so not sure if that impacted that.
The staff, from the hostess to the bartender, to the servers all have an attitude. The food was slow in coming and bland and unimaginative. One side, the broccoli and corn, was so over spiced that all one could taste was garlic.
Give this place a pass.
I am so sorry that Little Bird will be closing, but our "last supper" was exceptional in every way!
I shall SO miss this place!
Oh why are they closing? So sad.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The ambiance and service are wonderful. We have tried one of the sister restaurants but just not the same. Here we feel like we are in a lovely bistro in Paris!
Will be truly missed.
As always amazing. Too bad it’s closing
I am so sad that Little Bird is closing. This was my second visit and it was just as good as the first. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful and the cocktails were top notch. Excellent all around.
Lovely birthday dinner at Little Bird. The service and food were outstanding.
Please don't close! Please don't close! Please don't close! Please don't close! Please don't close! Please don't close! Please don't close! Please don't close! Please don't close!
Little Bird, you are a jewel, and I will miss you terribly. I treated myself to a late lunch downtown, and the host kindly seated me in the window. It was a perfect, sunny, early Fall afternoon. I could take in the whole restaurant from where I sat. Truly, this is the only place in town that makes me feel like I am in Paris. The chicken liver pate and chicken fried trout were both memorable.
Great food, with attentive friendly service. Would go back!
So sorry Little Bird is closing at the end of the month, it is the most French Bistro outside of France.
Over all a very good lunch experience. Good selection of wines by the glass.
Salad Nicoise was different than the usual with a bit of spicy ness with tuna.
Chicken fried trout, an unusual dish of trout fried like a fried chicken served with butter lettuce for a wrap. Very tasty.
This was a birthday celebration dinner out, and we enjoyed the evening immensely.
Little Bird is always a great place to go. The service, the drinks, the food, the atmosphere. It's always fantastic!
We sat at the corner window table for lunch, had great service and wonderful food. My lunch partner and I could hear each other easily, despite an almost-full restaurant. We felt like we were enjoying a leisurely meal in a French bistro!
The menu itself and the food choices were very good. The service was a bit spotty. We were seating upstairs and often went some time between server visits. Also, two of the four entrees were luke warm/cool (the steak and duck), but the trout (excellent) was hot. The food itself (and the beverages) were very good. We'd try it again. Definitely recommend the fried trout dish--unique and tasty.
We have young children so don't get out for date night often, so it is extra important to us to find a great place to go. Our first time at Little Bird Bistro and it was really great! They have a great wine list, we had excellent service the staff is very attentive. The food was delicious! I had the autumn vegetable tart and we shared the arugula salad, my husband had the flank steak and fries (mine was better than his, but both were delicious). We liked the ambiance and I would definitely go back again.
wonderful food. such friendly service staff. a little slow/inconsistent to get beverages but otherwise the food service was fabulous,
Another delicious lunch at Little Bird. Always a pleasant ambiance, good service and delicious food/presentation. I had the Chicken Cobb Salad and it was tasty and a good portion size. The only thing I would change is that the tables are close together, which makes private conversation challenging. But not enough to stop me from patronizing.
Awesome as usual
Food and ambiance is great, service really pretty terrible. Not rude or anything, but I should not have to remind the server to serve a forgotten appetizer before bringing on the main the main coarse.
The food was absolutely amazing! Everything we ordered was great.
Tried and true has become tired and not so true.
This once epitome of Portland French bistro cuisine has morphed to more continental faire. Still good but not as unique.
Classic wine list, superb service and charming (yet dated) interiors paired with sometimes ambitious but well made cuisine round out Little Bird's compelling appeal.
if possible join other diners on the ground floor not the balcony to appreciate its full effect.
The service was second to none. We were early, and from the moment we walked in the door we were welcomed, escorted to a seat at the bar, then taken to our table when it was available with everyone greeting, smiling and genuinely enjoying serving us. I've never felt so welcome at a restaurant. Our wait staff had excellent knowledge of the food and wine, both of which were excellent.
Nice cozy restaurant in downtown Portland OR.
The duck was spectacular. Loved the chicken fried trout. Special treat with fresh herbs.
The NY Steak, no so great sliced small portion with a lot of fat.
Deserts here make the trip from good to outstanding. Everyone loved the pastries
Great food, great service. Staff is very knowledgeable. I wish they had a larger herbal tea selection
The food was amazing and our server, Joya, was a delight. Little Bird came highly recommended and I know why! I'll definitely be back!
We were in town for a work event and met up with friends on the advice of another recent visitor. Food, wine, service were all great.
Great food served in a wonderful environment. I highly recommend Little Bird.
Outstanding we were referred to the Little by a friend. It was terrific. Highly recommend.
The food here is incredible, such a treat! We chose to share a couple of "petits plats" - the bone marrow and foie gras were devine and very large portion wise. For "grand plats" my seared duck breast was beyond delicious. Duck is one of my favorites and this did not disappoint. My husband had the cod which was equally flavorful and beautifully presented. The service started out well but half way through, our server disappeared for long periods of time. We may have ordered more wine with dinner or stayed longer for dessert but it took so long just to get a coffee at the end of our meal we chose to call it a night. We would certainly return for the amazing food and give the service another try!
I've been to Little Bird several times and the food is always very good. It's extremely difficult to get a same day reservation, which bugs me a little because the last time I went there were open tables during prime time dinner. I'll return again and if I could get reservations more easily I'd probably return more.
Thanks—The evening was fabulous!
Great food, great service! Love the Sunday somm wine special.
Great food. The chicken fried Trout is amazing.
