Radar Ratings and Reviews
This place is always amazing. We have been eating here on a regular basis and every time we are happy. The food is good but why we go is the cap’n kit cocktail. This drink is not on the menu. Lilly is such a wonderful person and always greets us and let us know about the status of our drink. With this kind personalized attention we love coming back and regularly bring friends and family to share the experience.
Been twice, lovely both times. Great cocktails. Wonderful food. Try the roasted radishes-I generally don’t like radishes but these are wonderful. Service has always been great and advice about the wine spot on. Friendly folks and great food. I will be back!
First time to Radar and loved it. I had my brother and his girlfriend in town and we all enjoyed our meals. I also appreciated the waitress’ consideration for my dietary needs (gluten and egg free). My friend and I ordered the smoked fish hash and it was delicious. Strong coffee available, as well. Overall, cute spot, great food, and fun location on Mississippi!
Lily is an excellent host and has a menu that reflects the region and the seasons. Always top notch. We had a time limit so I did reservations for Sunday morning brunch, which is what I'd recommend since it is a smaller space. Great coffee, great food, great service. Thank you Lily & your amazing team.
A friend recommended we try this place for brunch. We were able to make a reservation for 4 people and they had everything set up and ready to go when we walked in. The service was prompt and the food was good. It was fun to watch everyone wait in line for Gravy while we laughed and sipped breakfast cocktails!
A fantastic dining experience right next to Mississippi Studios where we had tickets for a Monday night show. Our first time to Radar and definitely not the last, we thoroughly enjoyed the good, service, and ambience. Our server was also the owner, and was very helpful with our special dietary requirements and helped make our experience a meal we won't soon forget. Thank you Radar! See you again soon!!
Nice spot on a busy street. Surprisingly quiet. Food very good. Octopus was a great contrast in flavors and texture. The "sweet" corn next to the charred Octopus was outstanding.
Cocktails were really good. The "standard" was quite unique. Service friendly, attentive, and perfect.
Escargots somehow did not get salted, a bit dull for that reason.
Nice neighborhood place.
We were a party of three and were seated at a small table for 2. Chairs (metal) were very uncomfortable for us older people. The only other choice were the wooden benches for the larger parties.
We enjoyed the food and felt that this was a nice, friendly neighborhood place.
Gin and tonics were the best bet.
This is my favorite place to take people from out of town. It used to be the VQ.
I love the feel of this space. Small and I love the big picture of the ship in the back.
Lily, who meets you at the door, is so nice and wants you to have a great night. She
jus oozes friendly. Right now, they have an amazing trout dish on the menu.
It is worth the trip in itself. Another must is the fried cauliflower. Thank you for
a wonderful evening...Tobey
Living in Portland choices abound, but Radar keeps bringing me back. Tonight started with an amazing Aviation & Tonic, but this is not your fathers G&T its one of Portlands finest gins with a great house made tonic that sports a hint of star anise. The custom single 6" cube of ice keeps it cold without the melt. We savored the famous deviled eggs complete with caviar, peppers and house smoked bacon as we finished our cocktails.
A shared small plate followed, combining house cured kimchi, roasted Oregon corn and white beans into a spicy roulade which was topped with tender grilled octopus, this was amazing!
Our main course a classic Steak frites, medium rare perfection, tender with a grilled sear. A Spanish red complimented our meal.
The food, atmosphere and staff truly represent what is great about the restaurant sene in Portland. All this at a fair price in a really cool space. Enjoy your visit... Ill be back soon.
Delicious brunch and they take reservations! It's a fantastic spot on Mississippi. There are only a couple of outdoor tables, but on a nice day they are a perfect place to sit. The food is really good, and they have a mix-and-match option for brunch so you can try a few things. I'll definitely be back!
