We went to Noble Rot for a New years eve dinner date. We have no complaints. We were greeted promptly seated right away even if we arrived before our reservation. Atmosphere, decorations and view is amazing. Starters were on point we got the local bread and olives along with a bottle of champagne and our server even let us try the champagne before buying which was great especially during these times. Then she let us know about all their specials which is very kind of her and she explained the items we had questions about on the menu. The food was amazing flavored so well and cooked precisely and everything came in the right amount of time.

We haven't been out much with the pandemic. I must say this is the best food I have eaten in 2 years! I was in heaven with the pork shoulder. The wine was also excellent, and we loved the view! It was a superb dining experience.

Overall a very good experience but it left us wanting more in some areas:
Sitting is very crammed and the bigger your party the better the seats for you. I understand that best tables are left for larger groups but tables for 2 seem like an afterthought.
Drinks are spectacular, we had 4 different cocktails between the two of us and every single one was awesome A+ on that.
Endive salad was underwhelming, and blue cheese flavor overpowered everything as there wasn’t anything on the plate that would balance it out. Definitely could have benefited from some beet reduction or some form of sweetness as beets were very mild in flavor
Octopus was good but it’s a 3 bite appetizer so it is a bit of a letdown because of the portion size.
Daily pasta was handmade pappardelle with Italian sausage, mushrooms and kale was delicious but the ratio of noodles to sauce was way off. Could have used more pasta. Great on flavor
Burger is absolutely fantastic, one of the best burgers I’ve had in some time A++ on that. Would go back just for the burger (and cocktails)
Overall, great view, excellent drinks and an awesome burger

My only issue was table distancing, I had two tables on both sides of me with 5 people within 6’ of me. We weren’t masked because we were eating but indoors, unmasked, people not in my bubble, made me a bit uneasy about Covid.

I wish I could give more stars. We had a beautiful experience. I asked for a window seat and they gave us the corner window looking out onto our beautiful city. Thank you to all at Noble Rot, the staff was very attentive and kind, we felt relaxed and at “home” and last but not least.. the food was absolutely incredible. We will be back .

Excellent service and view! Pricing a tad high for appetizers giving serving size, but entrees excellent. My son said the ribeye was one of the best he's had in Portland (and he's had many!). Great pasta dishes too. Hadn't been in a while and very glad to visit again!

Every dish we had was outstanding. Service was attentive but not cloying. Possibly the best French fries I’ve ever had. Learned something about whiskey from the great bartender.

The service was perfect - helpful and informative without being overbearing. The food and drinks arrived quickly and were scrumptious. We had an extra large booth that was very comfortable. The noise level was good - music playing to keep it lively, but not so loud as to make it hard to have a conversation. Very classy and modern decor, but can go casual or fancy- dress.Would recommend if looking for a place to be able to talk with friends with great service, ambiance, and food.

Delicious, interesting menu - pared down to one page of choices which I liked very much. Small servings and no bread, but those small servings were oh so tasty! Warning, it is a very loud restaurant, and as close as the tables are there is no getting around it. Other than the noise level, the atmosphere is pretty and special! Service was outstanding!

This was my first time to Noble Rot - I made a reservation for my girlfriend's birthday based on some online reviews. It did not disappoint at all - I loved the ambience and views, the fact that a lot of ingredients were from their rooftop garden, and most of all the food was incredibly delicious. The service was good but not at all rushed which I appreciated. That was the best creme brulee I've ever had, and the short rib dish was superb. Great wine selection as well - we particularly liked the port flight that our server recommended. Overall it was a great date night spot, and was worth the price tag. Would recommend!

The food was delicious and presented very well. They have something for everyone, vegan to carnivore. The staff was wonderful, we arrived early hoping to have a drink at the bar before dinner but it was full. They made arrangements to shuffle some people so we could sit at a table early. It is not cheap, but the food was very good. The brussel sprouts were some of the best I have had.

Our first time dining at Noble Rot . Excellent service , nice wine selection & food was very good . A nice presentation . The menu was a bit limited in terms of choices but the 4 of us were all happy with our selections . The short ribs were excellent as was the sturgeon . We will definitely dine there again. Parking is on the street and we didn’t have a problem finding a spot ( weekday at 5 pm ) .

Pasta special was delicious…a great blend of flavors.
Nice flight of white wine and a tasty rosemary blossom cocktail. The Apple and pear crisp was ala mode and a good finish to dinner.
Really appreciate the attentive and pleasant service.

We haven’t been here in forever so it was great to get back to an old favorite. The food was good. I just had soup and salad but both were delish. Hubby had a cheese burger that looked amazing. The only thing I would say could use some improvement was service. Our server took empty drinks and didn’t offer to refill. At one point we literally had no drinks and no water on the table. It just felt like we weren’t being looked after. We also happened to sit next to a very loud table so it was hard to have a conversation. Tables weren’t spaced out so we were inches from another table. So, overall, food good. Service was meh, but I know it’s hard to staff right now.

We took our nephew out to dinner while we were visiting Portland for thanksgiving. We were seating promptly, our server was really attentive and knew the menu inside and out. Timing was perfect everything we ordered was amazing! The home made tagliatelle pasta with house made sausage, sturgeon, hanger steak cooked to medium rare with a perfect sear crust, onion rings! Yes, yummy deluxe onion rings! The green salad was simple, plentiful and pretty! We enjoyed everything about this meal! Next time, cause he’s we’re going back! we hope to get a table with a view, maybe even outside! Highly recommend! One of the best meals we’ve had out at a restaurant in several years!
