Some of the dishes are overly sweet but they're still well made and presented.

Loved everything we had. Pork Bay, amazing Korean Ribs and duck in curry sauce. Favorite was the ribs, fall off the bone yum and not fatty as ribs can often be. Would go back for sure.

The kitchen was extremly slow. I told my server how hungry I was and ordered the Tuna salad and it was EXTREMLY tiny! I was quite annoyed the server didn't warn me as she knew I was starving. They seemed extremly proud of their food, it was okay.

Sauce box was a big disappointment. We started off with oxtail chow fun, fantastic! As were the house made mango sodas.!I wish I could say the same for the rest. Pork shu mai was passable as were the potstickers, but the dipping sauce for the potstickers was funky and did not compliment them. The spider roll was below average, jasmine rice was WAY over cooked and the kimchi was boring and listless. Portland has many better choices for Asian and Asian inspired food. I would not suggest Saucebox to anyone.

I was quite pleased with the entire dining experience! Having grown up in the Northwest, I have enjoyed wild, fresh salmon for many years. The salmon preparation at Saucebox just might be the best I've ever had. The service was attentive and genuine. Excellent restaurant!

I was very disappointed with the service. The food was good but the staff was not very good. We had them bring our entrees all at different times. We had to wait for the other and food was cold. We also had three different servers bring us food that was not ours. I would never recommend sitting up stairs as you get ignore. sad to spend over $300 for this type of service.

Server was great, food was good, drinks were really fun and tasty. Bar atmosphere was odd. Not sure I'd hang out in t he bar again. The Japanese cartoons on the ceiling were just too much. But again, drinks were fun and interesting, and service was good

Having dined at Saucebox numerous, over the years, tonight, we were disappointed. Despite making a reservation on Open Table, we were seated near the kitchen in an area the hostess described as "overflow for walk-ins." The dreary ambience reminded us of being seated at the "kids' table" during thanksgiving...with all the wonderful dining options in Portland, it's doubtful we'll return anytime soon.

The pork belly and shrimp Shumai were very fishy and overly firm, and the pork sarong was very dense and a bit dry. Entrees were underwhelming. While the service was very good, we wouldn't go back based on our food experience.

My wife and I went there for our 37th wedding anniversary a couple of nights ago. To be honest, I thought it was going to be just another Asian restaurant, but to my surprise, it exceeded my expectations. We ordered the pupu platter and everything on it was fantastic. So much so that we decided we would order appetizers and small bites instead of entrees. We were not disappointed. We took our time and ordered as we went along. Cocktails were also well crafted and imaginative. All in all, a great experience.

Unfortunately a large group had just been seated before we were. It seems they must've backed up the kitchen and overtaxed the waitstaff. Our food was slow in coming, the extra beer had to be requested a second time, and one entree arrived cold. The food was good and the waitstaff courteous, but the wait was annoyingly long.

The bartenders were off the night we went. We ordered the same cocktail after another and each time it came out tasting completely different! The price tag is hardly worth it. But for downtown dining, not horrible.

While out of the pork buns I was going to have the other food was very tasty and the drinks were very good. Not sure that I would come back for dinner but this would make a nice happy hour stop or location to simply sample drinks and appetizers. Not one of our top 10 Portland restaurants but definitely a quality establishment.

Delicious food, outstanding interior, not too loud. The server messed my reservation which did not make me very happy and the main server was not very friendly and seemed annoyed. Would have been better with better service and not messing reservation up.. Also the pork belly ramen did not have as much flavors as it would be compared to other ramen shops. It's understandable since it's not a professional ramen shop, however, still could be a bit better.
