The theater ended its production too early, so we enjoyed happy hour rather than the planned dinner. A shared opening platter of flat bread and smoked trout boded well for the evening. the 4 of us ordered the burger and fries. The fries were actually quartered baby potatoes- but actually wonderful. The burgers all seem to be cooked less that ordered, but no one complained. 3 wines and 3 beers added to the food and including tip came to $98.00. We had the place to ourselves on a Sunday afternoon, nice table and a great view of the river.
The food ,service and ambience was excellent. My only complaint is my husband’s steak could have been a little warmer. Other than that it was a fabulous experience. We will definitely be back !!
We went for Portland Dining Month. The ambience was awesome, food and presentation was outstanding and service was impeccable. Taylor was our server and he did a great job looking after our needs.
This is the newest replacement for Aquariva. They seem to have gotten off to a good start. Proportions are generous, cocktails are interesting (ice is right), staff is very attentive. The food was good. Nothing wowed me, but this is Portland. It's hard to be impressed. I would say they are a solid choice for finding something everyone will like while enjoying the people and river watching out the wall of windows.
This is a new place in the Aquariva space. The signs still say Aquariva. There is only valet parking but complimentary.
The service was excellent, the food was terrific, and we had a great time.
Staff was very friendly and attentive. We did Portland dining month there and we will definitely come back. We had a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed the dish they ordered which is says a lot. Food presentation. Is outstanding!
Loved the roasted beats & the salmon was excellent! Service was also excellent.
Great service, convenient valet parking, food was very good, and the view of the river was a nice addition also!
Beautiful remodel of the former Aquariva spot. Good food and wonderful service. We’ll be back.
Beautiful space . Overpriced mediocre food. Disappointed !
Our first night at the new Rosswood was in incredible. Beautiful new decor, a serene view from every window, and friendly staff greeted us. Do not forget to order a side of their bread to start...oh my gosh, it's good! Our wait staff were wonderful, professional, and helpful. The food was beautiful, inventive, and right up our foodie alley!! EVERYTHING was delicious!
We will be back soon. It was spectacular, I highly recommend!!
I loved our table with a great view of the river. They had many options for Portland Dining Month and we tried almost all of them. The flavors were great and so was the service.
Delicious food and wonderful service. This was the old Aquariva space. It’s been renovated and revamped. Love the new look. Just wish fir a bit more selection on the menu. Nevertheless we’ll be back.
One last meal before heading home to NY and the new Chef did not disappoint. Allium-free, but packed with fresh flavor. Tender slices of lamb over wild rice and trumpet mushrooms topped with diced Roma tomatoes and orange supremes. Surprising combination.
And the pastry chef couldn’t help herself-delicate cocoa almond pudding and brittle was the perfect last bite of Portland. Thank you Chef, Jels, Jasper, Christian and the attentive staff for taking such good care of me this month.
OMG the salmon was exceptional. Loved loved loved the crispy, salted skin and medium rare, moist flesh. The quinoa was nutty and chewy. The entire meal felt so good for me that my server, Taylor “twisted my arm” with his suggestion that I enjoy dessert. His pick: the bittersweet pots de creme!!! Luscious velvety and DEvine.
After a misty, riverside stroll, I just wanted to warm up. Ordered a plate of those incredible mushrooms which they served with grilled sourdough. Topped it all off with over a pot of Smith’s mint tea. No problem just stopping in for a small plate here. Not only was I treated like a VIP ( spending a lot of time here), but the manager, Marissa sent over a luscious scoop of the banana cream pie ice cream! ( she said she noticed I rarely order dessert.) WOW! When it comes to personalized service, the staff at Rosswood is not monkeying around! .
I simply do not tire of this restaurant. The setting is perfect; a breath away from the edge of the Willamette River with a straight-on view of Mt Hood. The service is friendly and unpretentious, the quality of the ingredients superior, especially the foraged mushrooms which I never tire of.
Tonight, the chef again worked around my allium allergy, reworking the rack of lamb into a satisfying, well-seasoned, and generous plate. The lamb was cooked perfectly and was topped with tender, sautéed local mushrooms. The fingerling potatoes were tender, with crispy skin. Yum. I also enjoyed the background music this evening as the winter sun and mist mingled over the water’s edge. I’m lucky to be staying at the affiliated River’s Edge Hotel & Spa. Tune in for tomorrow’s breakfast report.
It was just an easy night. Everything went relatively smooth aside from the waitress forgetting our things a few things. God was great, but the chicken was heavy. Also said it came with olives, but there were about 1 1/2 slices. Overall it was a beautiful place that didn’t break the bank. Would definitely go again.
Expected the salmon to be wild since it’s a NW venue. The dessert menu needs improvement and better choices. We had the Apple pie and could have more fruit and was too doughy. Loved the ambiance and attentive service.
