Covid-19 Rules:
- Masks required upon entry.
- Be prepared for heat, sun and cold. We have western exposure and it can get hot during prime dining hours. Bring hats and sunglasses. And sweaters for later.

Noble Rot is an ecosystem. A glacial well hydrates the building and the 3000 sq foot garden on the roof. The vegetables grown there supply the restaurant. Since 2002, The Rot has educated, entertained and fed Portland. Local, national and international media have consistently praised our style. Noble Rot’s situation is unique and our view is extraordinary.

The waiters could’ve been more attentive we felt a little neglected.

We have already make reservations like days ago but when we arrived we still need to wait for the seats. On top of that, they finally gave us seating options and there’s this one is just right next to balcony door and it’s opened and it’s now Late Nov super windy and cold. The rains would blow in sometimes. So of course I chose another seats that’s in the middle of the hallway which is not as comfortable. Pretty disappointing but the food is good I gotta say.

Great food and wine! Very diligent about mask use and Covid precautions which is good, but can be a little cumbersome at times, but happy to comply to keep them open and everyone safe.

Birthday dinner out and the food was amazing. Staff were pretty nice, but very insistent on our putting masks on every time they came to the table. Pricey, so won't come as often as we would like.

The service was horrible.. it took over 30 minutes for us to even be able to put our order in because the waitress didn’t come to our table. When we finally did order, she threw the cheese board down and didn’t name anything on the plate. When we asked, she didn’t know then walked away. The entrees, specifically the butternut squash pasta and the steak, were very good. I was disappointed however that the restaurant prided themselves on the rooftop garden, but the public was not able to see the garden and there were very few ingredients on the menu actually used from it.

We were seated almost immediately and the view from our table was amazing! The drinks were great, but the food.... OMG!!
The food was unbelievable! I had to keep myself in check so I wouldn’t inhale.

We sat outside on the patio which of on the fourth floor, let’s just start with that. Beautiful night. They had a small table fire going so no need to bundle up much. Everything was simply divine. It was our first time. Won’t be the last.

Incredibly delicious food! Creative, flavorful and more than two people could eat. Enjoyed the ribs for two and the deviled eggs. The chef was so accommodating, to remove dairy and substitute items. Incredible service. Will definitely return!

Food and drinks are excellent, atmosphere is super special: artsy and romantic with great views from the balcony. This restaurant is on the 4th floor. Service can be slow but if you are not in a hurry- you will survive.

One of our favorite restaurants in Portland. I don't even know where to begin. First, they've done a great job of making everyone feel safe. The restaurant is spotless, employees are masked as are patrons. Spacing is very evident. That addresses our current state of affairs.

We return for the food and ambiance. The view is spectacular, the food is divine. Throw in a great wine list and the BEST restaurant staff in Portland and you've got a winner. I do hope you enjoy as much as we do.
