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!

We had a very enjoyable couple of hours with friends this evening. The dinner selections were outstanding and the service was attentive without being to attentive. The only downside was the noise level. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with one another. The overall experience was very good and we look forward to returning soon.

I made reservations for Thanksgiving. It was a disaster. 30 minute wait to be seated and when we were it was right next to the loud and chaotic kitchen. One cracker and a small cheese ball for three people was the “starter” followed by a limited dinner choice (they had run out of vegetable options by 7 pm). The green beans were so woody they could not even be masticated. The remains of which even shocked the waitress who realized she needed to contact the manager immediately. For $75 a piece the portions were unacceptably small. A tiny cup of squash soup was fancied-up-to-death in the the way too many northwestern chefs do — tasting too much of cumin and the tinniest of tumeric. While the turkey medallion was moist and well seasoned, the mashed potatoes (all two table spoons of them) were bland and soft. The exaggerated sage in the stuffing didn’t compliment anything else on the palate, and the dessert — a so-called pumpkin cheese cake was saturated in sugar like most American desserts: I suppose that was the most traditional aspect of a very disappointing experience. I walked away angry that I had been defrauded of what I had hoped would be a comforting, enjoyable experience.

Had Thanksgiving dinner and all of us enjoyed the food immensely. Two of us had the salmon and two of us had the turkey. Well cooked, nice presentation and a leisurely pace. The portions *looked* small, but clearly weren’t as we were all very comfortably full at meal’s end. I wasn’t able to finish my pumpkin cheesecake despite it was a tiny portion. I was treated by a friend which is good because I’d never be able to pay $75 for a single meal. Plus whatever my glass of Bordeaux cost! I will check them out for lunch or brunch and see if that would be affordable - I’m very confident it would be just as tasty!

I wanted to experience a British Pub and meal again instead of having to travel a great distance.
My fish and chips was outstanding. My table mate enjoyed her full English breakfast.
I sat at a booth on a busy Sunday with many young party kids running down the stairs. Some noise
but lots of fun.

This was our third visit to Raven & Rose and, by our request, we had the same booth and same waiter (Ari, who is superb) again.
As we have done before, we took friends for their first visit to R&R, and they were knocked out.
This may have become our new favorite Portland go-to restaurant.
It's not, by any stretch, inexpensive but it's worth it.

We had early dinner for two. The curried rabbit was excellent. Both the rabbit and the halibut were handsomely plated. The halibut itself was not quite top notch in either flavor or texture.
The house wines were very good.
Service was excellent.
Seating and table setting were excellent.
Low noise levels facilitated conversation.
Pricing at approximately $100 including tip was not out of line with the Portland market for equivalent dining.

Raven & Rose has become our go-to Portland restaurant for outstanding food and impeccable service. This gem defies the rule that you cannot be all things to all people. It is your local "everyday" tavern with comfort food or healthy choices to suit anyone's needs, while also beautifully serving as a fine dining and special occasion experience. The entire service team provides friendly and sincere white tablecloth service, without any white tablecloth pretentiousness. We recently celebrated my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary and they made our night even more special by offering a celebratory toast, providing gluten free alternatives, and even digging deep into their kitchen to come up with tasty options that our very picky kid guests loved. The menu takes its inspiration from the owner and chef's best culinary experiences in Ireland and Great Britain, elevating this even higher with our locally sourced ingredients. Yes, there are fish and chips, and also the most succulent venison, crisp and lively salads, and of course luscious lamb dishes. They can accommodate a "burger and fries" appetite, however take a leap and try the Ballymaloe House pate, the fisherman's board, or something new to you, it will not disappoint and you may find your palette may no longer crave anything else. The wine, beer/cider, and cocktail list is top-notch as well. The Ladd Carriage House setting is beautiful and historic. If they were a few blocks closer to downtown, we'd probably never be able to find a seat. You'll be glad you ventured to this part of downtown for either a happy hour drink or a special occasion meal.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times. The food is very good. The service is also very good. My only issue with it is the cost. The food is priced high compared to many other comparable places in town, but the wine is ridiculous. A very small percentage of the choices are under $75 per bottle. Most of the wine list was between $125 and $200+ per bottle, and several were over $200 per bottle. I understand the need to have expensive wine for people with that kind of taste and money, but they should have a better selection of lower priced wines as well.

Taking an out of town friend to dinner, we made a return trip to Raven & Rose where we had enjoyed such a great time on our last visit, and were delighted to find we had the same table (I had asked for a quiet space, to talk) and the same wonderful waiter, Ari.
Again, the food was nothing less than outstanding. The wine-by-the-glass list could use a little help, but they make a terrific martini and my wife had some foo-foo drink she really enjoyed.
Ari was fun. Attentive without being overbearing, and an expert on all the menu selections and the wine.
We were made to feel like honored returning guests.

I was excited when I entered the establishment. The staff was super friendly and professional. The menu is creative and seems vibrant. However, I ended up leaving due to the fact that they do not have a diet / sugar free soda option. In PDX, this is not rare. However it is not acceptable in a costly dinning situation that is supposed to be an experience. The host was very polite about the discussion. I would love to see this change and would visit if I return to PDX if I heard so.

I was so excited to sample their "Irish Breakfast". I'm from Scotland, born & raised and my parents moved from southern Ireland to Scotland after they got married so my brothers and I are Scottish born. We were raised on Irish & Scottish inspired cooking. Black pudding, white pudding, back bacon, proper sausages and and lots of other things that would only confuse anyone who is not from the UK/Ireland but Boxty was the best :) We will go back because it was a lovely restaurant and the service was brilliant but the breakfast items were a disappointment to me. My husband ate all of his and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am a picky eater and I do have very high standards because I cook too and everything has to meet that standard. Next time we will have lunch or dinner and I expect that to be a huge success.
