I was surprised at how big the plates were. Very nicely done. My main issue was lack of sauce on my pasta dish. I like it a bit more wet and I'm not a big fan of open kitchens. Otherwise, nice place.
I've been to Terrane a number of times before because it is very convenient to Keller Auditorium. The food has always been better than average, but this last visit it was elevated over it's usual quality. The antipasta offerings were especially good, and I started thinking about coming back even without an event at Keller. I highly recommend.
Amazing! Loved the layback but fancy vibe. As a gal from Boston I wanted a lengthy dining experience without being rushed with really delicious food and I got exactly what I was looking for! The pasta was filling but didn’t make me feel bloated or gross afterward! I got espresso coffee after dinner and it was SO delicious. All the wine is great. I love this place.
Went for Mother’s Day lunch. Reasonable pasta dishes. High moderate prices. Server was very friendly and accommodating
We had an early dinner here before a show at Keller. We got to sit outside and enjoy the warm spring evening. The food was really tasty and the service was fantastic. Our server made sure we made it to the show in a timely manner. I will definitely go back when we don’t have a show so we can spend more time there.
stayed at the hotel and decided to have dinner on site. Meal was terrific. had grilled asparagus with burrata that was perfectly spiced and cooked. fennel sausage and pasta dish was also well done. light sauce that fit the dish. Larame was a great server and made good suggestion for wine pairing. will return next time I am in Portland
Thank you Anonymous for you review of Terrane. We work very hard to have the best service available and we are so happy that you got to experience that! We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Interesting ambiance, not quite our style with the décor/animal art and high ceiling, but the food was really tasty , albeit a little salty for our palate. The service was thoughtful and warm, would definitely go back for that!!
Thank you spicijulezz for you review of Terrane. We are so glad that you enjoyed the food and the service and we can't wait to see you when you come back in the future!!! We will make sure to keep note of the saltiness of the food and hope to improve during your next visit! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
First time eating here. This is the lobby restaurant for the Porter hotel so it can be a busy / noisy place at peak times. This food was well prepared and tasted very good but lacks creativity or personal touch. The staff was helpful and timely.
Thank you Datenight for you review of Terrane. I'm glad that you enjoyed how the food was prepared but we are sorry that you thought that it lacks creativity or personal touch. Our chef's work tirelessly on the menu to create dishes that they would hope are inspired but we understand that not everyone's ideas are what everyone's taste is. I hope that we see you again in the future and could possibly change your mind. Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Service drinks and food were all great, however one of the specials for dinner was a bit flavorless. We still enjoyed our night
Thank you Anonymous for you review of Terrane. I'm sorry that the special wasn't to your liking and we hope the next time you dine here will rectify that past experience. We will take note of that and work towards being better! We are still very happy that you enjoyed your night and look forward to seeing you again in the future! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Met a great friend to have a belated birthday dinner for him. Everything was fantastic! The only thing I didn’t like was the design of the chairs...they had these “wings” jutting out right around shoulder height that were fairly restrictive for normal eating movement. Sometimes one needs to wing out the elbows when getting food from plate to mouth. This was very noticeable, but it was the ONLY thing on the negative side about the whole experience.
Thank you DickT for you wonderful review of Terrane. I'm so glad that everything was fantastic we love hearing compliments like that! Our staff works very hard everyday and to get to share that with you makes what we do worth it! I'm sorry that the seating wasn't you style and that it caused a negative effect. We will definitely take that into consideration in the future! We hope to see you again soon! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Great food and service, and great roof top view of PDX
Fabulous evening all around! The food was delicious and the service was great! We shared an appetizer and it was more than enough.
Thank you Lulu27! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the food and the service! We have the best team both in the kitchen and the front of the house and are proud that you got to experience that! Come check out our brand new spring menu it is amazing! Hopefully we will see you again soon! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Absolutely superb! Very authentic Italian cuisine, great service, wonderful ambiance, and delicious Italian wines to pair. This place is in my top 5 favorites in Portland. I can't wait to go back!!
Thank you for your review!!! We aim to hopefully be one of everyone's favorite and could not be more excited that we are one of yours! Come check out our brand new spring menu you won't believe how beautiful and delicious everything is!!! We can't wait to see you again soon! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Went to Terrane Italian Kitchen before see Aladdin at the Keller. This was our first time. The food was great, the service was excellent and the layout of the restaurant was perfect. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.
Thank you LoveIT! We love having people try us out for the first time and then can't wait to come back! That is why we do what we do! We work very hard with our team to be the best we can be and to hear that in your review is what makes what we do worth it everyday! Can't wait to see you again soon! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
This is a nice restaurant with a very nice, attentive staff. The serving size is really small. Too small. I ordered the special, crab stuff pasta. I was served about six small tubes of pasta. It was delicious, but come on - give the public a plateful of food!
Gayle we are so happy that you found the service, and ambience good and the food delicious. I'm sorry to hear that you thought the portions size of the special wasn't big enough. I will coach the staff on this to make sure they explain when it is and appetizer or an entrée size. My apologies! That is not an excuse and we hope that you will come back and give us another shot and this time leave satisfied a with a full belly! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Food was just Ok, they try to be to fancy and very limited menu.
CarlB Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you found our food to be lack luster and the menu limited. We make all of our pastas by hand in house and source all of food locally and so we might not have the biggest menu but love it put into every dish! I hope that you will come and try our new spring menu and hopefully we can change your mind! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
The waitress didn’t mention the PDX tasting menu. She seemed like she’d rather not be there
Thank you Christinet for you review of Terrane. I'm sorry that you had the experience that you have had and I have sent you a private message with my personal email so that we can discuss in further details what may have went wrong on your visit! I'm glad that you seemed to enjoy the food and we hope to see you again in the future and change you feelings of Terrane! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Chris, our server, was great and knowledgeable about the wine and food. I would recommend this restaurant as a special occasion outing.
Thank you Anonymous for you wonderful review of Terrane! Chris really is an amazing part of our team and I'm glad that you were able to have such a fantastic time! We work very hard to make sure that our staff is armed with the knowledge to make all the guests have the best possible dining experience! We can't wait to see you again in the future!

We love Italian cuisine. It would be lovely if there were more Italian restaurants in the Portland area, but Terrane isn't helping that cause. Not a lot of menu choices with few classic Italian dishes. Also, no Italian restaurant worth it's salt charges for putting bread on the table. Then again, there was no salt on the table either. What's up with that trend? If you're serving Italian with less flavor than baby food, PLEASE put the salt & pepper shakers on every single table so patrons don't need to wait until the waitress comes back so they can ask her to get them. Then there's the salad. Terrane's "version" of a caesar salad is made with kale, KALE! This is NOT an episode of Portlandia, c'mon chef. Our order consisted of 1 order of bread, 1 salad, 1 beer, 3 pasta dishes, 2 of which were meatless, and the tab with tip was well over $100. Sooo overpriced for the quality AND the quantity. To add insult to injury the small tasteless portions were served in ridiculously oversized bowls, see pic. Sorry Terrane, but you have GOT to step it up. Garlic is excellent in Italian food. Try it, pleeease. No excuse for serving up such bland food.
Thank you fifi for your review of Terrane. I have included my email in a private message so that we can discuss your experience further and how it all went wrong. I hope that we can fix the problems that you may have had and win you back as a guest that would like to come back again and again! I definitely looks like we have much room for improvement and would like to take this as a learning experience for the future. Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Thank you again for a wonderful experience. Timothy and our waiters were fantastic! I will be back!
I recommend your hotel, restaurant, and Xport all the time!!! (food, service, view, location)
Thank you DebbieL for you wonderful review of Terrane! Timothy is such a gem and we couldn't be happier to have him as part of our team and I'm so glad that reflected on you visit! We can't wait to see you again in the future! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant manager
Amazing food and great service!
Thank you so much for you wonderful review of Terrane! We are so happy that you overall had a amazing experience! We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Very good food and drinks. Nice ambiance, not too noisy. I wish they had more vegetarian/vegan options.
Thank you Madame Susan for taking the time to review Terrane. I will pass along to the chef's that you would like to see more vegetarian options! I'm glad that you enjoyed your last visit and we can't wait to see you again in the future! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Excellent service and good food all around. For sides we tried the au-gratin cauliflour which was delicious, the apple salad seemed a bit underwhelming with little to no dressing, and the pan seared greens with a kick which were delicious but rather overly salted. For main course we tried the shrimp scampi over pasta which was yummy and the whole grilled snapper with aromatics (this had a bit of a fishy smell unfortunately which made me wonder how fresh it was). Great location next to the Keller, nice quite ambiance with tall ceilings and so not to noisy though it was full by the time we'd left. I would reccomend sticking to the italian basics though since the fresh pasta was wonderful.
Thank you JackK for you review of Terrane! I'm glad that you enjoyed your visit with us! I'm sorry about the fish you ordered we get a fresh shipment in everyday so our fish is always a fresh as possible so I'm sorry you felt like yours was too fishy we don't like hearing that you were unhappy. Hopefully we can make it up to you the next time you visit! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
The food was not impressive, the portions small and we felt it was overpriced
We really enjoyed both the ambience and the delicious food! But even more impressive was the stellar service we received. We were late getting there due to traffic and the entire staff accommodated us as they knew we were going to the Keller for the play and our already limited time was even more limited. Everyone worked together and flawlessly to make the most of our super quick 3 course meal!
The salads were wonderful, lightly dressed and full of flavor, the entrees were imaginative (beet pasta was delightfully interesting and flavorful) and the desserts were killer.(Olive cake and Chocolate sea salted caramel budino)
Can’t wait to go again when we aren’t in a rush and can really enjoy and savor!
Highly recommend !!
Thank you Lori for taking the time to write such a review of Terrane! We work really hard to accommodate every guests needs with top notch service and food and are so happy that this reflected on your last visit with us! We can't wait to see you again in the future! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
We were going to a show at Keller Auditorium and this was only a couple of blocks away. Ambiance was nice, the food was good and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Our dinners included desserts, but we were running late, so they let us come back after the show and finish our meal. We’ll go back.
Thank you Steve for taking the time to send a review! I'm glad that we were able to accommodate your request to come back after the show it was a pleasure having you! We can't wait to see you again in the future! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Small portions for price, taste & quality. Second time we’ve tried. Probably won’t return. For the price there are many other top notch places to go in the area.
Thank you HeatherR for taking the time to Review Terrane. I'm sorry that you feel like the quality of our food is not up to your standards. We try and source everything from local organic farms to have the freshest and seasonal ingredients and it is sad to hear that they didn't meet your expectations. We would love if you would give us another shot to prove that we are one of the best! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Service was slow. Told server we need to leave in 75 min for a show and ended up having to wolf down the food just to make it in time. We felt forgotten about despite being in the traffic lane for the servers. The food was bland and looked like it came from a middle school cafeteria. A bad middle school. The portions were smaller than advertised but in this case, I count that a blessing. This is the first time I have taken time to write a bad review but I was moved to want to warn others based on our experience.
Creative, excellent cuisine—coupled with amazing service. Couldn’t ask for a better pre-theater experience. Thank you!
Thank you Marybeth for your wonderful review of Terrane! We work very hard to give the best experience possible and are glad that it showed in your visit! We are so happy that you hopefully found your go to location for pre-theater dinner! We change our menus with the seasons so would love to see you back again to enjoy or new spring menu that we are all looking forward to launching soon! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
All good except server James (?) was a bit cloying. I never understand why servers ask if “we” have questions or if “we” are ready to order when it’s “you” since they are not ordering ...! Would “we” like coffee? Not sure about you, server, but I would/would not ...
Food was great..was little noisy, service was slow initially but then they made it up for that by taking off the drinks from our bill. Overall a nice place
First of all, the cocktails we had were absolutely AMAZING!! Whomever the bartender was on Valentine's Day made the BEST dirty Martini and Old Fashion we've ever had. Period. Hands down.
The wait staff was fantastic. Angela's attitude complimented her desire to serve and make out experience fantastic. If you have the chance and she's working, ask to sit in her section.
And now the food. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! There was NOTHING we didn't like. The Chef is a genius and the restaurant is very lucky to have him.
Bottom line is my expectations were blown out of the water. This place is amazing from the time you walk in the door until the time you leave. You will be doing yourself a disservice if you do not go there to eat.
The food and environment were outstanding. The service could have been better, the waiter was very nice, just not attentive to empty water glasses, etc. overall, I’d highly recommend.
This was a second visit that confirmed our first impressions. The dining room is lovely and the service is very good. There are quiet areas that allow great conversation - something you don't always find these days. Drinks are well made. And, the food is good... but not more than that, at least in our experience so far. We like the atmosphere enough, though, that we'll likely give it another try before too long.
Thank you PDXDiners2 for your wonderful review of Terrane. We work very hard with our staff to ensure that service is the best that it can be and we are glad that reflected on your past visit. We are definitely lucky to have the dining room we do in order to allow for quiet conversation if needed and are glad you can appreciate that too. I hope that the next time that you come in that we can wow you with our amazing food! We look forward to seeing you again! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
I was not very impressed. We were seated quickly but the best I can say is the entire meal felt overly "efficient". I am not a fan of being rushed to eat and this was very hurried. It also felt cold and uninviting. We were seated and the menu looked great. We ordered their albacore crudo with arugula and pine nuts to start which was lovely but the table seemed very empty even with our lemonades and water...there was a single tiny candle at the table. Some bread perhaps - especially in an Italian space?? My husband had their carbonara which was lovely. I got the swordfish which was just the fish. With the price tag I was pretty amazed it was just the piece of fish - especially since it was nothing extraordinary. My husband wanted to try their cauliflower gratin which we ordered and found it to contain two tiny pieces of cauliflower. We barely touched it so she respectfully did not charge us for it and listened to our feedback. Our waitress was very nice but almost seemed at our table too much. She offered me a lemonade refill and I had barely sipped the one I had...having plates cleared while you are still eating on them feels so very rushed. The whole meal just felt overly expensive and rushed.
We came for a birthday dinner. The service was amazing and the food was fresh and unique and delicious. Definitely recommend this restaurant. We even brought our 4 year old so this restaurant is family friendly.
Thank you LeahG for you great review of Terrane! We really enjoy hosting guests for their birthdays and getting to celebrate that special day with you! We are so happy that even your 4 year old had a great time as well we love having the little ones around. Our chefs work tirelessly to perfect the menu and we try and source as much as possible from local farms for the freshest ingredients and love that you appreciate that. We can't wait to see you again soon! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
Food was really good. It took about 40 minutes from ordering to get our entrees. Other than that it would have been 5 stars. Don’t come here if you have to be on time to something afterward.
Have been here a few times and the menu is wonderful, drinks and wines superb but I am shocked at how few people know this wonderful gem hidden in the ground level of The Porter Hotel! The restaurant is beautifully designed and the wait staff excellent and knowledgeable, but the food is what has us returning! We will be back, and hope the word gets out so others can enjoy this great find!
Thank you CityGalNY2OR for you wonderful review of Terrane. We appreciate you getting our name out there and for loving what we try so hard to achieve! We are so happy that you love our menus both food and beverage and we can't wait to see you again soon! It is guests like that make what we do so much fun! Alyssum Uslu Restaurant Manager
I've eaten here a number of times and had good food and I eat lunch on occasion because it is close to my office. But dinner on Friday night was awful.
The menu said short ribs. Those were not short ribs. They were mammoth sized beef ribs. They were super fatty and greasy and then the ultimate insult, not even seasoned.
The service was great, the drinks and dessert were good. But you should do yourself a favor and remove those "short ribs" from the menu.
