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!

We had a lovely experience at Raven & Rose. The food was spectacular and the service was superior. We had a special diet request and the server and kitchen were thorough in understanding our needs and created a delicious meal. Additional we were headed to a show and the server managed our dinning experience perfectly. Really, everything was perfect.

Although the menu is pricey, you cannot beat the location for going to The Schnitz. Excellent beet salad ($14), risotto ($20), and winter sangria ($10). Service at the door was fantastic and friendly but the waiter seemed rushed and uninterested in pleasantries. Restaurant itself is truly wonderful, with rich wood finishes and modern touches—very cool.

I gave 3 stars overall because of the poor hosting. We made our reservation well in advance but when we arrived we experience a host (owner?) who made us wait while he consulted his computer for a long time, and then offered us bar seating. When we asked for a table, he consulted his computer again for a long time and offered a table in a cold and high traffic area (next to the entrance door).
When asked about another table, he replied: they are all reserved. What about our reservation?????

We found it offensive and demeaning and sad, because food and service were outstanding.

All about this place is uneven. Uneven food quality, good steak, poor Caesar salad (too much dressing), limited and pricey menu. Fish of the Day, Scallops?? Very surly and pretentious server. This is actually the second time I have been here and experienced similar problems the last time. Pate served with dill pickles, not cornichon, Martini served with non-pitted olives. It's obvious this is a pig dressed as a silk purse. I don't mind paying a high price for good service, great atmosphere and wonderful food...the Raven and Rose has none of these. Skip it and try Higgins.

The food was excellent as well as the choices. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We sat at the bar but the pizza oven. It was fun to watch as well as cozy on a cold, rainy night. Very much recommend!

Enjoyed a dinner for four before the "Fiddler On the Roof" performance at Keller. Parked on the street near restaurant and walked to performance after dinner. Cheese board was amazing. Really enjoyed the many flavors. Fresh bread was delicious. Great cocktails. My pork shank was flavorful and tender. I loved the layered flavors of fennel, root veggies and pureed fruit on top. I dreamt about it. Great place for celebration. I highly recommend the butterscotch pudding for dessert! Total cost for 4 with two cocktails, chessboard, entree and dessert (free with coupon from Broadway in Portland) was $167 w/tip. The wait staff were friendly, attentive and efficient.

We had such a great experience! We celebrated my dad’s birthday and had my 10 month old nephew with us. They were amazingly accommodating and had the table pre-set for an infant when we got there. Our server was sweet and very knowledgeable, was very kind with my nephew, and was engaging overall. The food was phenomenal—the cheese platter was tasty and featured versatile options, the bread was scrumptious, and the beef dish with blue cheese butter, veggies and a baked British-style pudding was rich and well balanced.

I have previously been upstairs in The Rookery as well. No matter the locale, I love this place!

This restaurant is cozy and comfortable. Service is friendly and excellent. Menu, while somewhat limited, is very good and nicely presented.

Only negatives: chairs are somewhat low; salad greens should be cut in smaller pieces.

Definitely recommend and will return.

We we seated immediately and attended to with water and beverages. It was not quiet, however it was easy to carry a conversation with my date across the table we were seated at. We had the Fisherman's Board to start and it was excellent, especially the trout pâté. My rabbit was satisfactory. I have had better in Paris. Enough said there. My date had the venison which was excellent. The atmosphere was pleasant and the location was close to our hotel. We were well attended and never had to wait for food or drinks. A pleasant experience. I recommend this restaurant.

Always a delight. They were able to add two additional guests to our reservation with about an hour notice. The service is top notch and the food is consistently some of the best in Portland. I’ve brought several friends here over the years and they always love it and want to return.

While on the spendy side, R&R is a beautiful restaurant. Regina was an excellent server, very personable and attentive, without being intrusive. The dishes were very well prepared and tasty, while the decor was cozy and warm (better to sit farther from the entry, however.)

The food was great, the service was efficient but not particularly friendly. It seemed like we were being judged for some of our menu questions. I will come back though - I would still recommend the restaurant for a business lunch.

I had a colleague in from Boston He said the pork was one of the best meals he’s ever had. The rest of us had the salmon and it was delicious.
Our server was lovely and our entire experience was wonderful.

Arrived at PDX earlier in the day and found this restaurant near our hotel where we could meet our friends and enjoy dinner. This was a great find. We ordered steak, salmon and risotto. All were excellent, cooked and seasoned perfectly. Winter Sangria (hot) was pretty good too. Everyone there was very welcoming and our server was great. Will definitely stop in again when we return to Portland.

We were shown to our table right away and were asked about our evening plans so they would know if we had to be somewhere at a certain time. We did have tickets for a show and we finished dessert right on time. We had never been to Raven & Rose before but we do plan to go again. Everyone enjoyed their meals, especially the steak and Yorkshire pudding. Don't expect to have an inexpensive meal, but the service and the food and the location were excellent.

I would recommend if a friend were going to have drinks and happy hour - not a holiday meal. For
over $200(w/tip of course), we were as cramped as economy class on an airplane, and the door
kept a sweep of icy air over us! The servers were prompt, but there we were, elbows tucked in,
and I had envisioned a bit of atmosphere and an actual table - away from drafts. Salmon good,
soup good, and dessert just ok. We do plan on coming back for music and drinks upstairs.

Our Thanksgiving Feast was truly memorable! Our host greeted us on the front porch as we approached the restaurant, asking if we were the "(family name) party." We loved that, which put us all in a convivial mood. We were then escorted to our family table, separated from the activities at the front desk by a thick, green, ceiling-to-floor velour curtain. The ambience was divine, our server was attentive and informative, and when we were concerned that our party's conversations over appetizers might make us late for an appointment 60 minutes later, our maitre'd spoke to the kitchen and ... Voila! everything came together for a relaxing, savoring, delicious (but not too filling) feast on a holiday afternoon. What a special treat! We will return!
