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.

While a little difficult to find we really enjoyed the charming and unique setting... We felt as though we had found a secret place within a busy city. The ambiance was warm and inviting and the service was excellent. The Happy Hour menu was great though we did partake in a little of both and we found the prices to be within the realm of reasonable. Can't wait to go back!

Second time we’ve eaten there. First was at the bar which was OK so we thought we should try again as this place has great reviews. We were disappointed again. The food was pretty blah and tasteless, even though the menu looks so good. The prices are way too high. I think we’ll be checking out some other places.

Let me first say the ambiance, service and fresh garden items added to the menu are great. However, I had the Steak Frites and the meat smelled and tasted like it was turning bad. My friend who is a huge carnivore confirmed and said do NOT eat that! She had the lamb which was overcooked and our salad was blah and plain. Maybe it was just an off night I hope? It was busy though.... even the Creme Brûlée was a little runny this night. Server did take my steak frites off the bill.

I took my 13 year old daughter for dinner. They gave us the perfect table for two with a view. They also accommodated my 13 year olds dietary needs with out any hesitation. Our server was great she made my daughter feel comfortable and didn't treat her like a child. Looking forward to bringing my husband there soon

Took my friend out to celebrate her birthday and met a couple other friends there as well. Only a couple things were not exactly as ordered, but it really wasn't worth fussing about (no dressing on the side, wrong beer, which they fixed). They do a great job at this place and the view is amazing!

Exceeded all expectations! Even five of us couldn't try everything we wanted to taste. So we'll all be going back. Service notable for our group with staggered arrival times, various beverage and food preferences. Really can't wait to return for more.

Celebrated my wife's birthday with a party of 6 and had a great time! Everything went well. We ordered the clams, the Beet Wellington, the Cauliflower, and a few other items. The food was very good although the clams were a bit different. Normally, we really like them but we all thought they were okay - most likely just our taste preferences when it comes to how they are prepared. The service was very good but we were interrupted often in the beginning to see if we were ready to order, had we decided on anything, etc. I waited tables for years and understand being attentive but when there is a party of six, things are going to take time. 2 people in our party were 15 minutes late so maybe that had something to do with it. They were great with our son and made him buttered pasta which he said was off the scale good!!! thank you noble rot! we'll be back!

Delicious and creative plates. A nice balance of casual and classy ambiance. Someone who grows ingredients on their roof gets a thumbs up from me. I would have preferred the noise level to be a notch lower.

This was our second time to Noble Rot. Service was very good... timely, knowledgeable and friendly. The pasta dish was very good but my wife's meal of steak and veg was extremely salty and couldn't eat all of it. We mentioned it to the staff. They were apologetic and comp'd desert. We will try it again.

Noble Rot is my favorite place to dine before going to see a show at Imago Theater or Bossanova Ballroom. There were 4 in our party and we all loved our meal. When reserving on Open Table I asked for a window table with a view and they obliged, and we had a spectacular view of the city. The service was very friendly and knowledgeable. It remains my favorite dining establishment in the neighborhood.

Noble Rot is one of our solid go-tos, especially when going out with friends. The food is artful, beautiful, inventive, fresh and seasonal -- their rooftop garden is a HUGE plus. The wine list is very impressive, with fun wine flights (the BEST Pinot Noir flight in town). The view is amazing, and the servers are very knowledgable, friendly and unpretentious. The price point is also reasonable. It feels very Portland, for anti-snobby foodies.

Fantastic Service!! The ambiance was great and the food was awesome. We brought a special bottle of wine to share with friends and felt very comfortable. I am vegetarian and the choices were great. I had the "Beet Wellington" and it had amazing layers of flavor. We cannot wait to go back. Also a great view.

Bland onion tart and the presentation was too. The pasta was unbalanced and under cooked. The pear dessert had crunchy unripe fruit. Such a beautiful place. Great service. But disappointing food.

My wife was interest in sampling a new restaurant and heard good things about the Noble. We where pleased with the food and service - both outstanding. We loved the atmosphere.

However, we were seated at one of the least desirable table in the restaurant. The table for 2 was located in the middle of the restaurant next to the matradee podium. The matradee is literally standing next to you as you eat and folks are always walking pass you. All the other tables for two are located next to a window so you have the worst real estate in the place but pay the same. It's cramped and you have very little room to move around. Your surrounded by servers and pinned against a nook. You see other two table seats and find yourself envying the view and real estate. I can't say enough how horrible that table for 2 is located. Call ahead and make sure you don't get this table. I think the lady said we were in table number 13 or something.

My first time there and it was a disappointment. My pasta was too rich to eat and was completely flavorless. I set it aside and the server walked by a number of times and never asked if there was a problem. I brought it home, rinsed the sauce off and fed it to my chickens. A friend ordered a hamburger medium and the server argued with her about it. When it came out it was medium rare and was sent back. Again, an argument. My sister's Beet Wellington was good.
With so many amazing restaurants in Portland, I feel no need to try again. Sad.
