Raven & Rose
We also believe that everything is better when it is handmade. We are dedicated to making everything that we can in-house, daily and by hand. Our kitchen produces fresh pastas, pastries, crackers, soups and sauces. We butcher steaks, roasts, rabbits, birds, and fish in-house everyday. We believe it is all worth the effort, and we hope you will taste the difference!
I'm so sorry............but the dish we came for, pictured and advertised on Fathers Day ad, wasn't available. I know you were busy , but it took 20 minutes to put in an order, another 25 to get it.
Food was lukewarm, and part of what I ordered was missing. I had to hunt down a server to address the issue. I expect a lot better for a $16.00 per plate brunch.
We went for Father's Day Brunch. It's the first time I've been in the restaurant instead of the Rookery. The staff were friendly, efficient and responsive. The food was good. The ambience allowed for us to sit and have good conversation while we waited for our food.
Delicious donut muffins to start. Husband enjoyed eggs Benedict and I had the lovely beans on toast - both were very good!!
We came for an early dinner before the show. It was so loud - it was very difficult to hear the other side of our table of four, even before the restaurant was full. The food was very good, but the venison was a laughably small amount - especially given the price it commanded.
The service was prompt and efficient even offering the bill in time to get to the Opera (we'd lost track of time!) The cocktails were great--a Vieux Carre is a difficult drink to make properly and theirs was perfect! The food was delicious, generously portioned but not too much.
Great place for date night!
Mediocre experience started with the hostess said "you are late" when we arrived at 6:10 for a 6:00 reservation and she seated us in the worst possible table just inside the front door in a half empty dining room. Food and table service wasn't bad but very average and nowhere near what one would expect for the price. Overall perception may have been different if we hadn't started off on the wrong foot at the hostess desk. We almost did, and probably should have, left right then.
Always order the fish! The Chef does an excellent job balancing flavors
Good food and good service in a friendly place. Recommend highly for lunch and dinner.
This is the first time I've enjoyed lunch at Raven & Rose and it was delightful! My friend and I both ordered the BLTA sandwich and loved it. The bread is amazing and the avocado was fresh and tasty and really enhanced the flavor of the cooked just right bacon. The waitress was attentive but not overly so and kept our water glasses filled. I would definitely come back and have already recommended this restaurant to my co-workers.
Our dinner was very good overall. My steak was outstanding and my wife enjoyed her fish. Service was good and we would be glad to return. We were celebrating her birthday and had mentioned it in the Open Table reservation, however there was no mention of it before, during or after. A little disappointing.
The dinner was fantastic, as were the cocktails. Sitting and the bar in front of the pizza oven was like dinning in front of a fireplace. It was a very enjoyable evening.
The food and service were excellent. It can be a bit noisy though. Our wait person was cognizant of the fact that we were going to a performance and everything was done promptly without feeling rushed and yet mad us feel comfortable about timing. I will definitely return.
Dinner was quiet, restaurant was empty, would have been nice if they didn't start stacking up the chairs while we were there. We weren't dining late, but because it was slow, their packing up made us feel unwelcome
Terrific veggie dish; nice wine selections
Service was excellent. Food was delicious! Great date night!
We went to Raven and Rose before a play with some friends and had a great time. Our waiter was able to move us through pretty quickly with plenty of time to make the play. Great food and cocktails.
Loved the food. The lamb chops were fantastic. Don’t miss the butterscotch pudding. Great service too. Don’t miss this place
The location and atmosphere are good. The food was tasty but the portion size was minuscule. We left hungry and with a bill that did not reflect our experience unfortunately.
Our food took over an hour to come to our table. The server never mentioned why it was delayed and completely skirted around the issue. We didn’t ask questions but it was obvious something was missed when we could clearly see other tables around us getting food who had arrived a half hour after us. It would have been great to have the situation acknowledged and an apology. Instead the comment was “your food should be right up, it seems like you guys are having a great conversation.” Disappointing.
Unfortunately, we had a horrible experience, especially with the staff. I had booked a reservation two weeks before Mother's Day and the staff had given our table away. They claimed it was because we were early, but we arrived 5 minutes before our reserved time (10:15AM) but the restaurant opened at 10AM. They quickly put a table together in the entryway but I asked if there was anything else available because we had two nearly 90-year-old people and it was drafty and not an ideal location. Throughout the entire meal, we received rude looks from the hostess and did not feel welcome. After the terrible service, we will not be returning after our experience.
We came here for mother’s day, and it was fabulous. They were busy, but well organized. The food was amazing and every one of the staff was helpful and friendly. The muffin donuts are a must have, as well as the Irish breakfast. Delicious. Great ambiance. Love that they take reservations, especially in Portland where they are non-existent for brunch. And last but not least, best Irish coffee I have ever had.
My pork chop dinner was easily one of the most well-composed dishes I've had in Portland. The flavors were multi-layer but distinct. The dishes are expensive, as you can see that from the website. As for value, I rate Raven & Rose very high.
5 star restaurant from start to finish. Our party of 4 was overly delighted by the varied appetizers, main dishes and desserts. The roasted beet salad was outstanding, the fillet melted in your mouth, and the end to a great dinner was the butterscotch pudding. Compliments to the chef,we will return!
Great food but limited choices. We were surprised to find two veggie entrees, two game (well, venison and rabbit) entrees and three domestic mammal meat entrees backed by a fish of the day; but no fowl. Given the theme of British ambience perhaps a Guinea fowl or Cornish game hen would fit. Salads were very good as were the entrees we selected (one veggie and a steak). The dessert and cappuccini capped off a very good meal. The wine by the glass menu could stand expansion and perhaps a few standards. It is a bit disconcerting to find the offered reds were but a Grenache and a Merlot backed by several Pinot Noirs. White wine by the glass was an even more meager selection. The table by the back bench was fixed to the floor (thus unmovably too far from the bench) and a bit of a reach - we are normal sized adults and found that the table was high (or the seats low) enough that one felt like a kid at the big folks table. Since there was a message taped to the table that, in effect, stated. . . it was not designed to be moved so don't attempt it . . . indicated that others must have tried to remedy this aspect. We will come again but will specify a regular table and hope for a better fit.
Excellent dinner. Will return soon.
Very good service .Thé Sheperd's Pie that was ordered was not a Sheperd.s pie as most people would expect, but it was a Beef Pot Pie, generous on the meat side, very poor on the vegetables side. It was very good! Maybe making an adjustment on the menu listing, by using the term " Beef Pot Pie", instead of "Sheperd's Pie. That will avoid the feeling of being quite disappointed.
Always a “best bet”, thank you fir another amazing meal! Wether it’s a nice dinner fir 2 or a business event furor 9, Thais place never disappoints
Excellent food. Acoustics create too much noise in my opinion.
The best dining experience of our Portland visit by far. Food was amazing, service pristine and friendly, and the setting of a beautifully restored carriage house unique and unforgettable. The upstairs bar is not to be missed either.
Service was good, food was fantastic! We were a little close to other ppl on either side of us, but not a huge deal.
The service was excellent. The atmosphere was very nice. Meals were good but they were over priced for what was delivered. We had the the fillet,the Gnocchi and a great Caesar salad. We like there lunches.
The service and food were excellent. They asked if we were there for a show and when we said no, the evening was relaxing and wonderful.
I hadn't seen my particular waitress in months and she still remembered that I always get oysters and that I have a dietary restriction. I was really impressed.
Served a table of ten flawlessly
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!! I am obsessed with this place now.
Waiter was a great guy and very attentive. Meal was great but expect to eat a lot. Good place to share a plate if you need to lose weight but you will want to eat it all.
It was the first time we had dined there, and though we expected more of a "pub" atmosphere", it was nevertheless very pleasant. The menu was not extensive but was adventuresome with venison and octopus among the less familiar items. We snacked on appetizers and especially enjoyed the "flatbread" which would have been called "pizza" in a less trendy restaurant. The service was excellent and attentive. We'd definitely go back.
Consistently great which is why it's my "go to" restaurant for lunch business meetings.
