My husband and I had a 7:30 p.m. reservation, we were told by our waiter that they were out of steak and lamb. I found this to be odd as usually people tend to eat later in the evening. And when the desert menu arrive there were 2 more items that were no longer available. Our waiter was great and the food that was available was terrific. I would recommend this restaurant, but I would call ahead to see what they ran out of.

We were looking forward to dining at R&R. The food was very good with unique flavors - the roasted carrot salad was fabulous. However, the food service was terrible. It was not a busy evening as 1/4 of the tables were unoccupied and the same for upstairs. We didn't order a lot of food but our salad took 20-30 minutes to come out. The waiter (who was appropriately attentive) said there was a computer glitch. Then when I saw guests who were seated way after us and getting their dinners, i started to worry and had to comment to the waiter. There was no checkin with us while we waited and not even any excuses. It took 20-30m for our entree to arrive after we finished our salad. We didn't get dessert because didn't want to wait another 20minutes.

My daughter and I are from Indianapolis and we were there for the INDYCAR race over the weekend and found this gem. Wonderful local Pinot Noir and great food. It was so good I met my cousin from Seattle there another night and it was just as fabulous. Had the same waiter Ari, who is highly recommended to ask for! It was my best meals for my stay in Portland!

This was our first visit to Raven & Rose, although we had been to a charity event they catered and were so taken with it we had to visit. Very glad we did, and we will return.
We met an out of town friend for dinner, requested a quiet table or booth, and that was a good move. It can be active and a bit on the noisy side, but they put us in a lovely spot. Our waiter, Ari, was terrific - he knows the menu, he was attentive without being overly so, he made good recommendations.
The food was just excellent, the drinks were terrific and the wine list, while not huge, offered really good wines by the bottle or glass.
There's a lively happy hour here, although we didn't go to that. Looks quite popular, though.
All in all, we had a fine dinner, great get-together with our friend, and were treated like valued clients.
Highly recommended.

I got the Lamb. The sauce was amazing! Then you add the other items on the plate it is a symphony! Butterscotch pudding was delightful. The decor is warm and comforting. They had a chalkboard with the schedule for live music which is great. I thoroughly recommend Raven & Rose.

Easily got a booth with no wait with reservations at the last minute. A little slow to deliver food, but was tasty and quiet and not overly busy during the lunch hour. We eat here pretty regularly, there are times when it is very noisy and you feel like you are sitting on top of the folks next to you.

Food was not authentic. Eggs should be plain and simple. Sausage was tiny. Beans should be Heinz, not horrendous. Black and white pudding would be pepperoni size. Tomatoes would be larger, cut in half and fried. Couldn't find mushrooms, normally nice chunks that belong on a fork. Bread was excellent.
Beautiful setting, disappointing experience.

The time change threw off the reservation in our calendars and we showed up an hour early with our clients, but the amazing host and server didn't bat an eye and got a table pulled together very quickly to accommodate our relatively sizable group. The service was above and beyond, the food was excellent, and we had a fun evening. All of the staff was very knowledgeable about the menu, both food and drink, and the area. We so appreciated everything they did for us and we would absolutely go here again, personal or business. Really neat place with wonderful food and service-can't recommend it enough!

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.

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!

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.
