This was our first visit. Service was very friendly and professional. My wife had scallops and I had crab. Both were excellent. We also had an order of cauliflower which was very large. It was a little spicy but good. Wine selection was good. Waitress was very pleasant and professional. We shall return.

Nice setting and excellent food. Service was attentive and timely. All bar and restaurant locations are loud even without being fully occupied, so you need to raise your voice in normal conversations, something to consider.

Based on a previous experience, I recommended Terrane to another couple. I booked asking for a quiet table. As we were there early (7:15), there were many tables available. However, we were seated at a table in direct line with the kitchen entry and exit. I could see the mop from my seat. We asked for a different table and it took almost 10 minutes to re-seat us.
We ordered wine and the ricotta appetizer. It arrived with four pieces of bread...there were 4 of us. When we asked for more bread, it took awhile.
We waited almost 45 minutes for our entrees after eating the appetizer. My husband and I ordered the lamb. You would have thought we ordered two different dishes. Mine was over cooked ...almost burnt, and his was done perfectly. The other couple ordered the Orechiette and the short ribs. Both were fine. However, when my sister-in-law asked to box the rest of the meat and the bone for her dog, they agreed, took it away and lost it. All in all a very disappointing evening

The pasta for us 3 girls was heavenly. Most amazing flavors and unusual, unique ingredients. We all shared a cheese and salami board to start- total soul food.

The food, cocktails and ambiance were exquisite. We shared multiple small plates. The server brought us something for dinner we had seen in the restaurant's photos, but was usually only served for breakfast. There was no happy hour, but there is a bar menu, if you eat in the bar.

Portions were very small, served cold, and very expensive. Twenty six dollars for a little over a cup of pasta is ridiculous. What Italian rest doesn't put bread on the table while you wait? Also, we waited 40 minutes for 3 pasta dishes to be served and then they were cold! My spicy pasta dish was SO SPICY I couldn't taste anything after the first 3 bites. It was a terrible dining experience.

Our waitress Tara was great and oh so patient. I was meeting up with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. Instead of looking at the menu we were talking! We started with Bruschetta. Wonderful favor and served with excellent bread. Since the pasta is made in house we both had pasta dishes. Both were so good. We finished off our meal with the tiramisu. Melt in your mouth delicious!
Highly recommend and I’ll be visiting there again!

Fantastic restaurant in downtown Portland. My wife and me are really picky on food and we were more than happy with the quality, presentation and service. We had the bruschetta and mussels. Perfectly Timed as main we got the spinach fettuccine and the duck. Wine was delicious and the place was classy and spacious. We will be back.
Also our waitress was sweet as well as the wonderful Morna took care of our evening.

The ambience is great. The food wasn’t that great to be honest for the price. I understand pasta served al dente is standard for Italian food but this was rock hard- barely edible. The meat and ragu sauce was really basic. I could have cooked something better myself at home.

Also, the server was extremely chatty and asked all these questions, beyond the typical questions a server might ask in regards to dinner/menu etc. She went on and on about visiting the area and where we were from, why we were here and was just kind of obnoxious to be honest. I think she was friendly but there is a certain expectation in a nicer restaurant to keep the conversational manner short and polite. Just a note to pass on to the restaurant staff for future.

Lots of empty tables and yet they sat us right next to a family with a child that was out of control
Waiter said he had been there for years and yet did not know the menu or have any knowledge of the wines. The wine pour was the smallest I have ever seen and quite expensive.
The chef was great though and the food delicious.
Not sure if I will return

I wrote a long review on Yelp already and I'll repeat the headline here... There are few really good Italian restaurants in Portland. This is one. And it's new. So please go and check out the great authentic Italian food (manager is from Sicily). AND, as of this writing, there is no corkage fee on Sau and Sun nights, so bring your favorite Barolo from home and spend the $ you saved on more food and extra dessert!

Food was disappointing, I was looking forward to the experience but starters were average and the main fish course was actually not nice - black cod bland, bony, watery and undercooked! Dessert was also uninteresting, so many better restaurants in portland

We went to Terrane before the Show at the Keller. This was our second time and we just enjoy this restaurant very much. The food was very good, however, I had the short ribs and although it was very tasting it had a little more fat then I am used to. Everything else was excellent, including the martinis.

The special was a lamb shank that was to die for! Sweet and oh so tender. Yum! Excited for our next visit.

Waited for over 10 minutes to be seated (there was just no one around) and we had a reservation. Our server took our drink and appetizer orders after another 10-15 minutes of sitting. And then it took about an hour to get our appetizer salads which were put together without thought or effort. Another 45 minutes later we got our entrees. We ordered the “top” recommended dishes and were not impressed with the food at all. After two and a half hours we were tired, hungry, and very unsatisfied with how the staff handled the situation. They acted as if they were doing us a favor by taking the unimpressive salads off the bill. Had we not worked in the industry or been so considerate, we would have left long before the bad excuses and sub par food.

This restaurant is located in The Porter Hotel (Hilton) and is quite nice. Lots of variety on the menu. The service was good and the food was also good. Not exactly fine dining but the restaurant is a "cut above". All the entree's are ala carte and they do have some good side dishes to go with them. Nice wine list but a bit pricey. Great place to stop for dinner before a show at the Keller Auditorium as the restaurant is only two blocks away.

Giovani and Jillian were marvelous. We had the chef's dinner which was an explosion of wonderful Italian flavors with steak, scallops, mussels and more. The whole dining experience was excellent in spite of a little confusion about the wine which was managed by Giovani with grace and professionalism. The music in the roof top bar was annoying but rightfully so, since it was full of 20 and 30 something. We're in our 60's. Terrane though was perfection.
Thank you for a lovely evening and a fabulous meal with heavenly service.
