We ended up here a few years ago while actually trying to get a table at Gravy next door. The wait was over an hour so we popped into Radar. And it was THE BEST. We've been going back every couple of months, since. The food really can't be beat, and for the price you get just the right amount; not too little so as to be left hungry, and not too much that you suddenly despise whatever it was that you ate. Part of the menu is seasonal and they keep the good ole staples, too. I CANNOT recommend this restaurant enough. The owners always greet us with a welcoming warmth and it's such a special place. Just go!

We love the staff at Radar, from the co-owner Lily on down. They are so intent on making you feel welcome and at home. The food is always delicious, and they accommodated our special requests with grace. Please note: if you are of the diner-for-brunch crowd, shift your thinking. These are right-size portions of thoughtfully combined flavors. My fave brunch in Portland.

The food took a very long time, but it was Mother’s Day so they were understandably slammed. Several of us ordered eggs over easy, which apparently means not only is the yolk runny but the egg whites as well. One was so underdone the egg whites on the outside were visibly uncooked. They actually came back to argue that it was the butter on top. When we had three other examples of the exact same egg at our table to point the difference between the butter on ours vs the raw egg on hers. And still they stuck to the butter theory. That’s just inconsiderate to your guest at that point.

Highly professional yet easygoing staff that manages to make you feel fancy without regretting jeans and a t-shirt and messy hair. I went for brunch. Food was delicious with little wait time; only the slightly-overcooked/hard potatoes tripped up the (brilliant) combo option. (I chose potato, the sensational pork, and two precisely-prepared over-easy eggs as my three brunch components.) Bloody mary had a serious kick, which is how I like it, and the coffee was very good too.

Made reservations at Radar for PDM and it went beyond expectations! Every single dish, 7 in all, was thoughtfully created and prepared. Add a couple of outstanding cocktails and genuinely pleasant, professional service, and we were sincerely impressed. Went on a Friday night so naturally it was slow, but worth every bite. Will definitely be back again!

We decided to dine tapas style and went with a selection of their small plates to share as a family and everything was absolutely delicious and beautifully arranged. We loved the intimate space and open kitchen. The staff and owner were attentive and thoughtful. We also loved that the chefs served many of the plates directly to our table, describing what we were being served. We will definitely go back.

The food was very good, although the answers about the food from the servers was mixed. Hence, my friend ordered the ham which she was told was medium thickness but was actually shaved slices that were stuck together while cooking.

As always - almost everything at Radar is great. On this night we were up against Portland Dining Week and this really slowed the staff down and some of the food quality took a hit - the risotto in particular was just not that good. Everything else was great and we will always go back.

Thank goodness for Portland's Dining Month. If it wasn't for that, I probably never would have stumbled upon Radar and never would have had such an incredible experience. The environment, drinks, food, and service were beyond all of my expectations. Johnny took the time out of his busy night to make our table feel special, and it enhanced our experience that much more. That definitely won't be our last time going there. I'm excited to try their brunch next!!!
