Irish

Ri Ra Irish Pub and Restaurant is a meticulously restored authentic Irish Pub made from materials imported from Ireland. From the wood and nails to the furniture and even the people who built it--we are authentic through and through.

We also love local and are proud to serve many local favorites from our craft beer selections that showcase just the right mix of imported Irish beers and regional favorites. Our food menu is comprised of elevated pub grub with a local twist.

Come in anytime for a pint, some food and some Irish hospitality. You are always welcome!

We do reserve a number of tables for Walk-ins, so if a reservation is not available, please call and ask for availability.

For years it has been awesome. Last night it was lame. I’m afraid staffing is a concern. For the rest of this long weekend, we will be dining elsewhere. Hopefully, it will get back to normal.

Brunch was good, but we spent most of the time trying to flag down our waitress for things that the table should’ve already been stocked with…spoons to stir our coffee, ketchup, butter etc. The party seated behind us was in search of jelly, jam, spoons, ketchup and we noticed they spent time trying to flag down our waitress as well. Not her fault…the restaurant is obviously short staffed. Lovely view from the second floor. We would definitely eat here again.

We ordered happy hour food but they were out of the snack box and potato cakes. Sausage roll was not good. Curry poutine was good.

Pork belly poutine was quite good and the tri-color home fries were a nice touch. Other than that, food was pretty plain and definitely not worth the price, especially given what else Portland's food scene has to offer. Except for the relatively loud neighboring table, and kind of loud rock music (not live), the overall feel and ambience are great: comfy chairs, spacious tables, and airy environment with lots of windows overlooking the harbor. Would recommend to someone looking for a good drink and energetic but casual scene, simple flavors with a hearty meal.

We ended up ordering at the bar and even some of the food we wanted was sold out. We were giving some money off on the tab and were apologies were made to us.

We were a party of 5 sat in the upstairs room in a far back table way too close to other parties during covid times. No one even came to say hello or even offer us water for a solid 45 minutes while they waited on every other table around us except ours… we ended up getting up and leaving before we even had anyone come to our table to take a drink order or offer water. After 50 minutes sitting down. Very very poor experience.

Great seat upstairs, music was a bit loud. We all enjoyed our very well apportioned meals. Two thoughts…one if someone orders an app for lunch, bring a side plate and two the mixed drinks were a tad light. My mule was pretty watery. I’d stick with beer next time!

To start: we were seated at a table with literally NO light at it. Additionally it is situated right at the door to the kitchen. So I sat in near pitch black and each time the service door to the kitchen opened it was like high beams on the high way shining in my face. I had a headaches by the end of the night from the strain my eyes had trying to adjust. We asked the manager if we could get a different table her curt and attitude filled response was “what do you want me to do about it”. Next: we waited 15 min to get any kind of order in. Then a couple drinks arrive and it’s another 10 before we get our food ordered. It was 45 min before the one app we ordered arrived. Following: it took 50 min for us to be asked if we needed more drinks. Next up: 95 min in our food finally arrived. No apology for the long wait or anything. Just shows up. And it doesn’t ALL show up at once. There were 5 of us and 5 plates. But only 4 were ours. The 5th was another table’s app. The final plate arrived a min or so later on it’s own. Now the food: yeah. Do we know what seasoning is at this establishment? Because not a single bite of food was seasoned properly. There was NO SALT IN ANYTHING. My dish came with gravy to which there was maybe a teaspoon of on the plate. What’s the point. Last point. The drinks were awful. I ordered their signature maple old fashioned. Was there even any whiskey in the glass?!? The orange peel was replaced by a slice of orange. The expected luxardo cherry was a maraschino. If I’m paying $14 for a house old fashioned it better be worthwhile. Overall this was one of the worst experiences we have ever had. From horrible attitudes to slow and unresponsive service to awful food. They could have brought me any plate different from what I ordered and I’d have never been able to tell because I couldn’t see past my nose!!! I will never go here again. I strongly suggest no one else ever does.

Unfortunately they were out of literally 1/2 of the menu. Normally that would have completely ruined the experience. However, the ambiance was beautiful upstairs and our waitress was kind and apologetic and attentive. We had a lovely evening. I have been here several times and the food does not disappoint.

Shepherd’s Pie was a soupy lamb stew with a dollop of mashed potatoes. It tasted ok, but weird presentation and consistency. Lamb burger was burnt on both sides. Still, it was a fun dinner for our large group.

We went to the nutcracker and made reservations for 4:15pm at Ri Ra. We loved the ambience and the waitress Samantha was great! My granddaughter pointed out that we got our food faster than usual something we are not used to lately. We love having our grand-mother grand-daughter weekends and it is on my grand-daughters fav list for sure! Great job!

Last night RiRa's chefs provided all of us with delicious dinners. Thank you! It makes such a difference in an evening with friends when the meal met everyone's satisfaction. Server was great however the last drink order did not arrive until after we had finished eating. To his credit, his tables were filling up and when he delivered our drinks he had eight other beverages his tray. Only drawback to the evening was heading upstairs and one had to maneuver through a crowded bar scene, to and from dinner. Covid concerns coming to the forefront. Thank you for continuing to offer a great venue for gathering with friends. You are our favorite place to do just that!
