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.

Wonderful view of the Portland skyline. We were able to enjoy the sunset during our dinner experience. The dining area is small and intimate, and after the sun sets, you dine with dim lighting and candlelight. It was a great way to celebrate my birthday. Our table ordered the salmon entree, risotto, the pasta of the day, and the pork entree- all tasted great. Our table shared the peanut butter dessert, sponge cake, and the chocolate brownie that our server paired with a few samples of their dessert wines (on the house). Thank you for a wonderful night.

My apologies for not remembering her name but our server was great. Very personable, knowledgeable, was there when we needed her but never felt like she was hovering.

Did not plan to have dinner here but were close by and decided to see if they had room for an early dinner. Although our table did not have the advertised view and people arriving after us got the “good tables” I’m guessing they had previous reservations. Staff was extremely friendly and both my wife’s lamb with sausage stuffing and my short rib with polenta were excellent. Well prepared and served piping hot made both dishes very enjoyable. We were both trying to be good so avoided dessert so can’t comment. Best of all was the extensive wine list. I was expecting mostly Oregon wines but the list was from all regions. We found an excellent Australian Shiraz that was outstanding especially considering the low cost. At first I was afraid to order it due to low cost but waitress assured us it would be a good bottle or not on their menu. It was a bargain and made a very enjoyable dinner at a reasonable cost. Great job to all at Noble Rot!

I planned this Saturday evening dinner as a birthday party for my sister. From the moment we walked in the door, as busy as they were, we felt like royalty the whole time. Dinner was excellent! Inventive and playful! Great for family style sharing to taste all of the delicious options! Ended dinner with candles in a very tasteful dessert! I cannot wait to return for a rooftop dinner at sunset this summer!

our waitress was very kind and helpful in choosing our cocktails and her attentiveness was on point. the first three courses we had were great (mac and cheese, noble salad, and soup of the day) however the two mains we ordered were not. the panisse was ok (a bit over salted) and the gnocchi was actually terrible (chalky bread clumps) I ended up taking one bite and throwing it directly into the trash)
Tonight for us was a 2/5.

It was more like dining in a bar that serves food than in a restaurant, per se. Dimly lit, small table, hard, uncomfortable seating and music that was too loud for conversations. The menu is rather pretentious and the prices are too high.

Fantastic service and fabulous food. Dined here for the first time with friends and had a wonderful evening. The beet and endive salad was simple and elegant and the red wine braised short ribs melted in your mouth. Topped off with a perfectly crusted creme brulee it was a meal that makes you want to come back again and again.

Noble Rot is always a great destination. The outstanding view from the top-floor dining room complements the excellent menu and friendly, attentive service. Suitable for a casual dinner out or a romantic evening, Noble Rot never disappoints.

A big disappointment compared to our last visit a few years ago which was fantastic. My wife had $36 scallops, and they were really overcooked - very rubbery. I ordered a burger cooked to medium, and it was medium well - very dry. The server was fine, but not friendly or charismatic and had very little to say about our flight of wines that we tasted from. The house red was really quite bad, too. There was a guest on his laptop the whole time we were there, which seems unacceptable for a Saturday night dinner scene, especially because he was seated next to the window, so the glare detracted from the views of downtown. Noble Rot is in a neighborhood that we frequent often, but we will not be going back any more.

I was disappointed with the entree selections. There was very little for a vegetarian to choose from. One pasta dish...that was it. Also, we were disappointed that the entree only came with one other food item (scallops with potato - no vegetable, beef ribs with polenta - no vegetable, lamb - bean and leek "salad"). Even though we also shared an appetizer, my son and husband came home hungry...
