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. For fifteen years, The Rot has educated, entertained and fed this city. Local, national and international media have consistently praised our style. Noble Rot’s situation is unique and our view is extraordinary.

I'm picky and critical. But I can only say awesome things about Noble Rot. The whole experience! Setting, service (thx Allison!), food, wine, value = excellent! And the tour of the roof top garden by Chef Joe was VERY special! Thank you all at Noble Rot!

Excellent food, great atmosphere. However, it was a little cold, since there was a draft coming from the entrance which had just a curtain.

For all the hype I was expecting more. The wine flights were a bit mediocre. The specialty cocktails were overdone. I ordered the ribs, which had a zesty barbecue sauce, but the sauce couldn't disguise how overdone and dry the ribs themselves were. The onion rings were spectacular-- the best part of the whole meal. The dessert list was spotty and uninteresting But the 4th of July fireworks were marvelous from the rooftop

The food was fair at best and very overpriced for the quality. The staff was very slow, so only go here if you don't have somewhere else to be.

What a pleasant surprise, as we were met right off with the friendliest staff. The evening got even better as the night went on. The drinks were unique and served with pride. The salads were fresh and tasty. Entrees were cooked to perfection. All four of us were impressed. I can not speak highly enough for the staff.

The food was off the richter. The table, not in view of the sunset...which is kinda why we came @ 8:30p with a reservation. In hindsight it was a little less noisy on the bar side. Service was slow to start, but got better as the meal got underway. The food made up for the few shortcomings mentioned above, and the wine was outstanding! I'd recommend to anyone.

Our first time. Food was forgettable. Lamb was over done. Entire meal was over salted and took a long time to get considering that we were the first customers there. Enjoyed the wine flight. Evening was saved by the Noble Rot dessert wine flight. Superb. We won't be coming back, but we will buy your wine. Not the 10th anniversary celebration we were hoping for.

We got reservations easily a couple of days before. We sat at a splendid table with a city view. The server was quick and friendly, well informed and helpful. There was some noise but not so much that we couldn't talk at normal volume. The food was fantastic. Fresh, hot, flavorful and healthy. My tuna was fresh and served not too done, not cold. The watermelon that it came with was grilled quickly and it let the flavor out... Yum. The salmon was great according to the out of staters that were looking for the traditional faire and the lamb was delicious and juicy. The best part were all the vegetable. The salad was terrific. The outside was full and there was a general festive atmosphere. Not stuffy, not over the top snobby but definitely "foodies" would enjoy the evening.

Tables on the deck are very close together and when the windows are mostly closed, it's hard to hear one another without shouting--which means you are sharing your conversation with the very nearby tables.

The lamb was phenomenal. The rest was good, but expensive. Service was attentive, and the view was great.

Impressive! The food was spectacular, actually. Their fresh greens from the rooftop garden gave it all that special final touch. My lamb chops were excellent and the various other dishes I sampled from others at the table were similarly compelling. Try the Peanut butter and Jelly dessert for a worthy coup de grâce. Oh my!

We had eaten a late lunch and were looking for a small plate kind of meal. The meat plate AND the cheese plates were both to die for. The cocktails were really unique and delicious. Great views of Portland, and close to Voodoo Donuts Too.

The food was good and creative. The only lacking bit would have been to have more and as creative vegetarian options. The service was good. I come from San Diego, so I am used to a more friendly atmosphere, but it wasn't bad. The wine list is excellent. Their food creativity definitely extends to their dessert. It was delicious.

This was my fourth or fifth visit, and may be a small upgrade to my previous review.

We called ahead and requested a table on the balcony, and were warmly greeted and well cared-for. The food was excellent, the wine well-recommended, and the evening warm and beautiful.

It was also nice to be at a restaurant with a real cross-section of Portland. This is not stuffy, overly fancy, or stuck up. Nor is it unremittingly hipster or overly taken with itself. It is concerned with good food, good wine, and good service. Worth the time, in my estimation.

Brought my boyfriend here for a date, I had a reservation and they sat us outside on the patio. We were able to be there while the sun was up and while it was setting, the view was great. Food was also great, but I don't recommend the tarte. Drinks are very expensive and don't earn their price since they aren't very strong. To clarify, they aren't weak, but for $11+ they should be much stronger than they were. Our waitress had great timing for the food and drinks. Overall we really liked it and plan to come back again.

Fun funky vibe with great views of Portland. Interesting menu. Our choices were good but not great. Others might have been knockout. Limited wine menu. But overall it was a fun time. More atmosphere than cuisine.
