I had never gone to the Raven and Rose before, but I was always intrigued by its charming historical flair. I’m glad that I was finally able to dine here. The food was amazing, the drinks were delicious, and the servers we friendly and knowledgeable. I especially loved the Beetroot Salad. The freshly ground black pepper really gave the flavors a whole new dimension. The perfect way to start a meal!

Our server was outstanding; friendly, attentive without intrusive. She had a great personality and seemed genuinely to like people.

We had eggs Benedict (brunch) They were standard but not outstanding. The ham was overdone and tough.

Wonderful that it is in walking distance to the arts venues. Definitely would come back to aim for totally outstanding experience with food.

We went for Sunday brunch and it was spectacular. The donut muffins are a must starter, not overly sweet and great with coffee. We each had the full Irish breakfast, everything was cooked perfectly and delicious. Our server was very friendly and extremely helpful. Would definitely go back.

I wouldn't recommend if you have an event to go to after. We had tickets to Les Mis at 1pm, a reservation at 11:30, had to wait while they set up our table, didn't get our food until 12:40 and missed the opening number. We notified the waitress that we had tickets to a show at noon as we noticed the slow service. We requested boxes when our food came to pack out what we needed, had our cards out and paid while we were shoveling our food. During which we got a lecture from the waitress about next time we should make a reservation and notify them that we have tickets to a show. The food was amazing, I wish we could have enjoyed it more and not burned our mouths. Besides having lunch at 10:30, I'm not sure what we could have done better to help the situation.

Although we arrived 10 minutes before our actual reservation, the host was able to seat us right away at a table near the window in the heart of the restaurant. Started with the very tasty flatbread while we enjoyed cocktails…the server kept a close eye on our progress and perfectly arranged the timing of our dinners! A very busy evening, however, the service was impeccable, friendly and efficient!

I’ve never had a poor experience and appreciate the meal offerings…thanks again!

Don't usually review these restaurants, but my experience at Raven & Rose was somewhat baffling. The food was good and the location nice, but our server, who I will refer to as "Angry Man" was strangely out of place. From the initial approach to our table to the closing of the bill, Angry Man seemed barely able to keep his rage in check. Never once asked me if I wanted a drink (which I'm still trying to understand) and would not look at me though he did acknowledge my two dining companions. Did I do something to offend you, Angry Man? Our food was good, as I said, but the experience was so strange! Angry Man, please, if you are really that unhappy, you need to find another job. I hope you cheer up soon!

Disappointed. Went for late lunch. Staff was very vocal in the kitchen goofing around, singing loudly with the music. . Fish and Chips was disappointing, slaw was dry and flavorless. I don't plan on returning.

We dined at Raven and Rose before a show nearby. This was the second time we'd eaten there. The first time we were there before a show as was the occasion this time. We ate at the bar previously and liked it a lot. The wood-fired flat bread is amazing. The bar produces great mixed drinks. And we had the venison with huckleberry compote. All excellent. This second time we ate at a table instead of the bar and found the noise level to make conversation difficult. I think the next time we go there as a couple we will make it a point to sit at the bar. Conversation was much easier side by side then across the table. Altogether a very positive experience.

First and foremost, the service was excellent. Daniel and (I think) Rochelle were our servers on a rather quite Saturday Night. It was the starlight parade so that made sense. The hostess we charming and all was rather comfortable.

The food was exceptional. Presented beautifully, all properly sequenced, and delicious.

The only, an if you could even call it an issue, were the prices. I would put them on par with another higher end restaurant in a BIG city. One could say that from the bar up - the prices were on the higher end. Possibly $5-7 more per they could be. This certainly ensures the clientele is of a certain style; however, it's a bit off putting to pay $14 for a manhattan and $42 for the seafood board? (the board had a very small ramekin of mussels, 4 medium grilled shrimp, 2 slices of a grilled fish; and one small grilled tentacle. This price was a bit shocking (it said market price on the menu which is fine, but I was a bit shocked as it was WAY OVER the entrees which were $26 and $30 - a bit high but not shocking.) Mind you, it was delicious, but $42? That's steak house insanity.

The butterscotch pudding was heaven like. If a bathtub could be filled with it, I would be quite satisfied. Smooth, perfectly sweet and smokey, and just the perfect size. (BTW, that was $10 which is pretty customary.)

So, overall - AMAZING!! Love this place (and we've been here before; just now, we will not be as shocked by the prices. BTW, also about price, the portions are perfect. Not too big, not too huge. All else, just right.

GREAT PLACE!

Fantastic food, marvelous cocktails (including some rarely-found classics from as far back as the late 1800s), and great ambiance, whether downstairs or upstairs in the Rookery. The service is warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Zach’s lore and expertise is a great asset to any evening, regardless the occasion.

The food was good and clearly quality ingredients. Non-alcoholic brunch for two was 70$, which is a bit steep even considering the location downtown. Black/white pudding and sausage portions were quite small, but tasty. Breakfast beans had a bit too much vinegar for my taste. Donut muffins were delicious but maybe overboard with clarified butter depending on your tolerance. Coffee and service was excellent. Very clean place with a good ambiance.

Beautiful building. We enjoyed cocktails upstairs first then dinner. Hosts were attentive and friendly. Unfortunately our server seemed to be juggling too much. We were there for over 3 hours waiting a lot for beverages and food. Two of us ordered steak medium rare: one came back rare, the other well done. We sent the well done back. When it finally arrived it too was rare. Our server seemed to disappear and was somewhat condescending. She may not realize this is how she comes across. The hosts repeatedly checked on us and were apologetic for the food mishap which was appreciated. We were all disappointed and will probably not return which is unfortunate.

We had a very nice meal. The staff was extremely welcoming and efficient. I would have liked to see a less protein-heavy set of entrees (besides a single all-vegetable entree--root vegetables on squash noodles). The flatbread/cheese appetizer was way too salty. Nevertheless, I would happily go back again.

Our R&R experience turned out to be one of the best restaurant s we've had in Portland. The food was great. I think the rabbit dish might be my favorite dish in all of Portland. We were given what seemed to be the best seating in the house, two bar seats overlooking the restaurant. But it was the perfect professional service of the bartender that really made the evening.

A really enjoyable evening sitting at the counter watching the chefs at work. As Brits we enjoyed the pub atmosphere - more gastro pub than traditional but done so well. Great atmosphere, excellent service and food in a cool space - upstairs looks fun too! That's for our next visit to coincide with some live music.

Went to celebrate Mother’s Day. Waiting too long for food, “10-15 minutes” was what we heard until at arrived 1 hour and 20 minutes after ordering.
Derek the General Manager couldn’t handle our complaint, he raised his voice to us and walked away, never again to come back to our table.
They did comp our meal, even though we said on two occasions we wanted to pay.
Very disappointed with the service from this reputable establishment.

We celebrated my son's college graduation with brunch. Everything was lovely. We had a private table for 10 in a corner. The cocktails were amazing. The food was lovely. I would highly suggest this restaurant to anyone. We had two children in our party and they loved the food they ordered as well.

I have also been here another time but upstairs in the amazing bar. I love the bar! Again the cocktails are amazing and the ambiance is amazing. The bar food is delicious. I was able to get a seat on the couch near the fireplace. So fun!

We are definitely "foodies" who live in Vancouver but drive to Portland for the food. This is by far our newest & best find! Everything we ordered was amazing, from the chicken pate to the lemon dessert. My husband had the 3 way rabbit which was so moist and delicious. I had the pasta which was fresh with local mushrooms & pea pods. We will definitely be back very soon!

Food and service good. Your wine prices are way to high, need a better selection at the lower price point level. There is no reason that most wines are three or four times the price of the entree. This is NOT good dining value and a deterrent to return very often.

Wonderful dining experience! The menu offered a good selection. Every item we ordered was an excellent dish. The restaurant is located close to the center of downtown so it is a perfect for pre-dining before attending any events at the local Schnitzer or Keller Theaters (and let them know if you're attending any event so you won't get pressed for time.)
