The food was outstanding. There were 10 of us for a birthday. The chef designed a 4-course menu that blew us all away. We’ll be back soon!

Loved everything except the zydeco music. Such a special place and meal -the music was distracting. A different genre would have made it perfect!!!!

Excellent meal and service. The fried rice, duck, black cod, Brussels sprouts and carrots were divine. I think the braised short rib would have been better with lamb to compliment the sauces that were central to its preparation.

The cocktails were complex and quite interesting. We shared several items. The scallops were unique and the carrot dish was delish! Steak tartar was so yummy - want more! The staff was responsive to our needs and replaced a drink we didn't like.

Excellent evening out - food was great, service was outstanding. Took care of us nicely for our anniversary (complimentary glass of bubbles) - meaning they read the requests on OpenTable! Our favorite items were the carrots and prawn fried rice. We didn't check out the wine list, as we brought our own ($20 corkage). Really nice spot for a special occasion/date night! Wouldn't take kids here, pretty sophisticated palate/menu.

Best food I've had in Portland and the perfect place for a special night. Thoughtful, intentional, interesting flavor pairings that showcase fresh local ingredients in a way that isn't just for show. Classy and attentive service, awesome drink options, and a great space both indoors and outdoors. At our most recent visit we got the chef's tasting menu and we highly recommend the experience. We were able to customize it to our diet preference and it was a great value. Can't wait to visit again! Fine dining that's actually worth it.

Overly pretentious restaurant. They refused to put salt on the rim of a cocktail, ha! It wasn’t a big deal to anyone in the party but it was humorous to see their response. Feels like your in an episode of Portlandia.

You aren’t that special Quaintrelle. I won’t be back anytime soon considering the plethora of good dining options in Portland.

Tasting menu is a waste of time. Just the exact same meals and portion sizes as the main menu, far far too much food and not fun by the end.

We loved everything we ordered. The oysters were so tasty. They also accommodated to my six year olds palette and fried some fish for her with raw carrots on the side. She loved it! Can’t wait to return. Love the seasonal ever changing menu.

Omg! The food here is so delicious. Olivia took care of us and she brought it!! Friendly and knowledgeable. Cheese platter was the perfect way to start. I had the pork chop and I don’t think I’ve ever had a pork chop that delicious in my life (I’m fat af, I eat a lot of pork chops) and we capped it off with a yummy milkshake. I basically had to roll myself home. Can’t wait to eat all the other delicious things at Quaintrelle!!

Lovely dinner despite it being very cold and drafty in the restaurant. The lighting was also brighter than the time of day warranted. Highlights for us were the prawns and the gem lettuce salad. All presentations were beautiful, just not all dishes seasoned to our liking. Would have liked more choices of protein. Server was professional yet distant. Regardless, we love Quaintrelle and look forward to returning.

After staying at the Abbey Roads Farm silo BnB in Carlton and having such a great time, we gave Quaintrelle a try. The food at Quaintrelle was very good. The octopus was world class! We were in luck to have Jackalope Winery tasting flight with our dinner.

We came Saturday evening for a date night. Hostess was great, server not very personable (visited neighboring table 3x before coming to check on us). Even though website says no kids there was a child about 2yo running around the tables. Food was amazing but a bit pricey. I was still hungry when I got home so I made a 2nd dinner. It was also very cold and loud - bring a jacket and ear plugs lol.

Good salad, the eggplant dish was too soaked in sauce. The Rockfish was good but waiting 1 hr to have it serve was not worth it.
Horrible service tonight . Disappointing

The food was outstanding. Small plates of exceptionally prepared cuisine. If you are looking for huge portion this is not your place. But if you are looking for adequate volume of very unique and delicious food this is the place for you. Wine list was OK. Could use some work on the pricing tiers.

What a special treat! Our table did the 5-course chef’s menu. Because there were six of us, we got to try nearly everything on the menu. So many amazing dishes! It’s a lovely place and the service was attentive and helpful with suggestions. Overall, a fantastic dinner! We will definitely go back again.

I came here on a last-minute reservation with 8 coworkers and was truly impressed by the restaurant’s ability to accommodate a group of our size and our array of dietary needs. The food was incredible - fascinating combinations, quality local ingredients and perfect execution. Every staff member we interacted with was welcoming and helpful. Thank you so much for a memorable evening!

This neighborhood gem keeps getting better and better. Some of the best food anywhere in Portland in an unpretentious and welcoming setting. Menu is very vegetable heavy but also has excellent seafood and meat. Everything is fresh and local and prepared thoughtfully and lovingly. The warmest and friendliest staff of anywhere we've been, both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the food.
A wonderful dining experience!

Fabulous as always - service is great - food is sublime - Travis, the bartender is a national treasure (ask him for a Traszerac (the name we suggested he give the drink). We had HH Prawns, Baby squash and Pork as well as Beets, and Albacore - all divine. It was Thursday so there was live jazz (Brent Follis was a part of that group and he and it were fantastic. Cannot go wrong at Quaintrelle.

We loved the food. The flavors of the small plates were amazing and we'd go back just for them.

It's a little less casual than we'd planned for, but that turned out not to be an issue.

Overall, great unique spot. Highly recommend.
