The quality and sourcing of our ingredients is our highest priority at Raven & Rose. We work directly with our local farmers, purveyors and artisans to bring the very best to the each dish and drink we serve. We strive to learn as much as possible about the sustainable, organic and humane practices of each of the producers, and work to select products with the highest integrity. From pastured meats to sustainably harvested seafoods to organic produce to biodynamic and natural wines, the health of the planet and of our guests and our employees is paramount to our business philosophy.

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!

Excellent food and super service. Very creative specials, we loved the seafood board and the seasonal melon bowl was great. The host and our waitress were very accommodating and genuinely friendly.

My darling and I celebrated our twelfth anniversary at Raven & Rose, chosen because we met when we were living in Ireland. The food was just out of this world. Ingredients so fresh and perfectly composed of delicious and beautiful flavors and colors. The menu was perfect, small but varied, with good choices for vegetarians. We had theater tickets so had only an hour to dine. My one regret was not having time for dessert. We returned after the play to check out the bar upstairs, but were too tired to stick around. I wish they took better care of their tables. We sat in one of their lovely booths. Our table was badly damaged with a crack and big spot of missing varnish. Otherwise, a perfect night out!

Raven and Rose will always be one of my favorite restaurants in Portland. Food that you will not find except if you are traveling in Europe can be found here. All portions are generous and mixed drinks are good.

As always, everything was great! I haven't been in a couple of years because I moved to wine country, but am glad I met my friend there. She had the Bean Toast, and at every bite she said, "Yum, it's SO good!" I had the Beef Hash, and I don't know what they do to it to make every bite so flavorful, but I loved it!

Went on a Sunday and expected a full lunch menu and was informed that they only serve brunch on Sundays. We were definitely disappointed but still had a good experience.

Every standard of service and quality is met every time I visit this restaurant. Their staff is genuine in their desire to serve and their product is outstanding. In the restaurant business it takes more than just one element or even two to create an overall "experience." Over the years I have found that the house that is Raven and Rose consistently hits it out of the park. They work hard at their craft and it shows.

The green salad on the dinner menu needed more vinaigrette dressing...it was hardly dressed at all. The chicken liver pate starter and the salmon special were excellent. Very welcoming host. We'll return.

This was my first time ever at Raven and Rose. There was a very large table next to us that clearly took precedence over us, and in fact, our waitress even eluded to this fact when we asked where our food was after 45 minutes and a gentleman who was seated after we had put in our food order received his food and finished eating in the time before we received our food. When we asked the waitress about our food, she never apologized for the long wait. She did compensate us for our first drink. However in the time we waited we would have liked to order more drinks,
which we were never asked.Needless to say, I don't intend to ever go back. There are far too many great food options in Portland to waste my time on this place.

Raven & Rose is pretty much perfect. We went for brunch on a Sunday morning and the food was delicious. The Full English Breakfast will leave you feeling full all day. It's incredible. You must substitute the toast for the English muffin. It's a perfect English muffin.

Great food and nice space. Wait staff seemed to be new. Waiter did not know the menu, and was pretty uncoordinated with the hostess. Several missteps in getting things to our table, but overall a very nice evening.

All was wonderful ...

...except the vibrations throughout the entire dinner. It bothered my dinner guest so much we left rather than linger over an after dinner drink, said it upset her stomach. I had the bench seat, she had the chair on the slate flooring. Her feeling the vibrations was much stronger than my searing. My previous dining there I had not felt the vibrations, boy this time did we ever!!! We sat the second small table fron the door.

Next time I dine at Raven and Rose is there a better place to be seated so we don’t feel the vibrations so much.

We ate in the upscale restaurant downstairs. The food was good - I had an excellent Caesar salad and a vegetable dish that was quite tasty, and my wife had he tomato bisque and a seasonal salad. The bisque was initially brought only lukewarm and had to be sent back, and my wife never did get the additional bread she ordered. The service was lackadaisical at best - despite it not being very busy. I didn’t think it was a good value - it’s certainly not inexpensive, and for those kind of prices I think you can do better in downtown Portland. If we were to go back, we’d try the upstairs pub.

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.

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.

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.

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 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
