Quaintrelle's menu is representative of Chef Ryley's culinary adventures, rebellious nature, and artistic passions.

Fantastic place in Portland for a foodie. I would suggest the Chef's tasting and drink pairing. It conjures a magical experience.

I love Quaintrelle. The food is outstanding: creative and really well executed. The wine list is thoughtful and I love the support of local wines, and the service is consistently impeccable.

One of the two best meals I have had in my life. 4 of us ordered the 9-course chef's menu. Every course was exquisitely executed in composition and presentation, and our server explained each dish as it was brought out. Hard to pick a favorite; the oysters had an amazing depth of flavor, the duck was tender and perhaps the most flavorful dish of the night, the mussels in green curry were a revelation. One in our party ordered vegetarian and where a vegetarian alternative was required, they were equally inventive, beautiful, and delicious.

We had the drink pairings, and it wasn't just wine; some courses were a small cocktail or apertif, again delicious and artfully presented. We came hungry and still 9 courses was too much food, but we are not complaining.

One note: the last few courses were spread out a little more and the check was slow to arrive. we ended up taking over three hours for the meal; good thing we had a 6 PM seating.

great to have eaten here , while there were several people outside , and it was COLD out , it was pretty cold inside so please be prepared for it being cold inside. They need to keep going in and out so its hard to keep the weather in or out and i really want to support and understand how hard it is these days to run a restaurant, perhaps there is an upstairs that could be used that stays warm.

Okay, my bf and I are HUGE foodies. This place was the bomb. Listen to recommendations from the waiter. We ordered a la carte and everything was awesome. A great place for date night, but kinda boujee so dress well. 10/10 recommend y’all.

Pretty disappointed to be honest. We did the seven course tasting but were only served dishes off the top of the menu. It was in no way a tasting. I was super excited about dinner after looking at the menu. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try many different dishes. Most of the flavors were pretty good but some dishes we just kind of boring. If you do check this place out I would suggest skipping the tasting.

We ordered the seven-course tasting menu, and it was fantastic; they spaced out the courses so that you never felt too full. Everything was just right and our server was very nice and recommended a great bottle of wine as well.

The food was outstanding and prepared obviously by people who know food. A bit too complicated ingredient wise although the result is great - it felt like a painter using as many colours as possible. I read as gourmet food for gourmets.
price wise, well, it is not for the average Joe and fairly elitist

The food was absolutely fabulous. Something new for me and my son.
I would have preferred to sit outdoors, but I failed to ask with my reservation
The mixologist was spectacular, this young lady made the most beautiful and tasty libations. The staff was very attentive and cordial. Made my birthday night a great event. I will return.

Very creative food. Special occasion place with a tasting menu that is decadent and adventurous. It's a unique food experience for the foodie who is not looking for value and portions, rather delicious chef quality food that is based on the freshest available ingredients and a different way to present them.
