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!
It's hard to make British and Irish food taste good, but Raven and Rose did it! I've had a lot of full Irish and full English breakfasts before this was the best black pudding I've ever had. So good! White pudding was great too - and the fadge! Yum.
Super nice, attentive staff - even on a busy St. Patrick's Day! :)
This was my third time at Raven & Rose and the first time I'd had anything less than an amazing experience.
I believe they must have changed stuff up in the kitchen as in addition to having to send our sausage back to be properly cooked, we also had some pretty underwhelming hollandaise.
There were still some definite high notes, the host made up for the flighty attentions of our server, the tea menu and serving remains delightful and most components of the Full English and Full Irish we ate were spot on (black pudding and white pudding in particular), with delicious fage and lovely mushrooms.
I think I just hold this place to a higher standard. I will come again though.
Small portions and very overpriced food and drinks. The only cool aspect is the outside of the restaurant (the inside is not very cozy, just a cramped smallish restaurant).Service was OK. For the money we spent we could have eaten much better at a much nicer place.
The service was remarkably slow. We waited for a very long time to get our first drinks. The dinner service was slow, as well. The food, while tasty, was actually cold by the time it arrived. I ordered the gnocchi, and it was chilled. The apple crumb cake was scrumptious. I used to enjoy R I think that for the cost, there are more suitable options for service and value.
Excellent evening! Luv this place! Our waiter was awesome.
All was well with the large table for our group of 8, the food and drinks were delicious and served in a timely manner, and all was good. The problem that is leaving a bit of a sour taste in my mouth is the service at the end when I tried to use my $50.00 Open Table credit. I had told the waiter of this coupon at the beginning of the meal and was hoping he researched how to use it. Well - he did not and it was a fiasco. He told me it had $0 balance which I knew was not true, that is was expired (also not true), and that it was declined (this was true but because of the way he processed it). Donnie came to our assistance, called Open Table, and fixed it all. But the whole group had to wait about 45 minutes for me and it was very embarrasing.
Great traditional British food that I haven't had the chance to eat in a long time, and the staff were very aware of all of the theaters nearby and gave us the fastest service possible.
At the beginning we we're put off by price (I had looked at rookery menu online which is cheaper and simpler). But great service and when our food arrived it was delicious.
Will definitely return
The host was very pleasant and our server was efficient and kind. The food was great and we had a nice lunch.
Beautiful and interesting building. Mussels were outstanding. The salad was too heavy on the vinegar.
Everything was amazing. The food the cocktails and the service impeccable. My only fault would be that in my estimation there are maybe four tables that are not desireable. They are small two person tables along the counter. That’s where we were seated. People keep rushing by and bumping into you. These tables offer no privacy or intimacy for a couple on a date.
The Raven & Rose offers a nice atmosphere, but the food was mediocre, way overpriced and service was slow. Took nearly an hour to get my order -- a pork chop with a few lima beans and brussels sprouts for over $30. Wine was a staggering $14 a glass. Left feeling like I had been fleeced. I will not be going back.
This is the kind of place you celebrate something special. We dined here before going to the Keller for a Broadway show. We had a divine 1.5 hours just talking and enjoying the superior flavors created and served by the staff at Raven and Rose. Wonderful!
Overall we enjoyed our lunch. However, the service let us down at the end. The last 20 minutes plates sat dirty with no service, and then had to go to bar to pay. Then discovered automatic 20% gratuity for parties of 6 or more...and understood why.
We went to Raven & Rose to celebrate my fathers birthday and it was an incredible night out. Every single thing that we ordered, from drinks, to dinner, to dessert, far surpassed our expectations - everything was delicious and so well crafted. The service was also great. It is on the more expensive side, however it is worth every penny, especially for a special evening out. We will definitely be returning.
Awesome birthday celebration for my wife!
Our waiter was amazing. The food tasted amazing. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars, is they had run out of multiple options on the menu, making it very limited on choices.
I always love my experience at Raven and Rose. Even for a very busy night it's never too loud. The food is fantastic, and the service wonderful. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Always a wonderful experience with great food and kind staff. I look forward to my next visit!
Great spot, great atmosphere, free pool in upstairs bar sealed the deal for me as far as returning. Somewhat high food prices balanced out in mind by the free pool table in upstairs bar. Expect to pay well for good food. Wont break the bank, but but pricey for "classy bar" category of dining. Expect to drop $100-150 for 2 meal, 2 drinks and shared dessert for 2 people.
We had a great time. Food tasted good, different selections from what we are accustomed to.
Such an amazing night!! Food was fabulous, staff was very attentive & wonderful at suggestions. Definitely coming back.
Everything was wonderful, we sat at the bar and were served by your wonderful bartender. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable.
My wife and I enjoyed a romantic and tasty dinner on Valentines Day. We will definitely go back.
Extremely friendly service, fantastic food, warm inviting ambience. Would come back again!
Awesome Valentine’s Day dinner out. Fixed menu was delicious! Would highly recommend.
Great place to have drinks and hang out. Nice atmosphere, cozy fireplace and couches to sit on.
Our experience was wonderful. This was our first visit but won't be our last. Perfect dining experience for Valentine Day!
upstairs is the place to be. great food and awesome service. thanks.
My friend and I came to Portland for the weekend and like to try new food places. We both very much enjoyed the ambience and food at Raven and Rose.
We had the curry rabbit and it was fantastic. The curry sauce is one of the best I have eaten. The service was also excellent. The waiter was attentive and made sure we got out of the establishment before our show. We were very pleased.
Beautiful interior and exterior, excellent service and amazing food. The drinks were lovely as well.
The food was excellent the waiter was just ok. It wasn’t busy when we arrived. When the next guest came in they were seated right next to us when there were plenty of tables. The one thing I forgot about every time we go there is the tables are so small. You get dinner and a basket of bread, water bottle and your drink and it’s too crowded. I feel like something is going to go on the floor. Sad really. Not looking for a banquet table just some elbow room.
Excellent food and outstanding service in a beautiful space. Always a great experience.
Wonderful food, great atmosphere. I had the Venison and it was wonderful. They allowed us to sit at the bar after our table was a bit cramped.
Good food and good atmosphere but a very slow service and way overpriced, especially for starters.
This is getting to be a habit. Same waiter (Ari - he's superb), same table (quiet, by a window), delicious food and good time with friends.
The home made corned beef was delicious! the fish and chips looked good as well.
Our first visit to Raven and Rose...Sunday Brunch. We'll be back.
