Raven & Rose Ratings and Reviews
Great spot, great service but not great food, and not great value. Partially our fault as the server tried to discourage us from ordering the gnocchi but we ordered it anyway (comes with jumbo prawns). It had a very shrimpy taste that lingered. I wonder if the sauce is made with mussel broth? It was ok that it was such a small portion for the cost because you would not have wanted to eat any more. It's like they are trying to tell you "Don't order gnocchi at a british/irish restaurant you dope!" One piece of my fish was undercooked and I sent it back. It came back from the kitchen cooked well and not overdone, with some new "chips" which was very nice. Overall, however, the fish was tasteless. Also $14 for a beet salad that had maybe 10 bites. On top of that they were out of the baked pretzel (?) really? Appreciated that they allowed us to order off the Rookery menu for one teen that wanted a hamburger.
The food was very good although I was a little surprised with the cost. With tip it was just under $200 for 2. Of course we did each have a couple of drinks, plus one dessert. They charge for bread which is the first place I’ve ever been charged for bread prior to dinner. All in all it was a great place to go pre-theater.
I had the salmon special with saffron hollandaise. To say it was tremendous is an understatement. The salmon was prepared perfectly--the skin was delightfully crispy and sounded like a potato chip crunching as I put my fork through it. Every bite was better than the rest. Chef Mondok curates food like nobody else in Portland. His passion for vibrant flavors and picturesque presentation make Raven & Rose one of my favorite dining experiences in Portland.
Most of the food was quite good, however one steak dinner came cold and they forgot to bring a steak knife. We had to get up and chase someone down for the knife, which was reflective of the mediocre service in general. So by the time the steak was cut, it was really cold and rare instead of med-rare. The waiter did apologize and fix it, but my wife pretty much finally got her meal while we were halfway done. For a place in this price range, I would expect the place to adjust the bill for those kind of mistakes. I can think of a few places in the Portland area that have better steak, with a better sauce, has a larger cut, with vegetables for the same price or less.
The food was always good and sometimes incredibly unique combinations of flavors. The service was very friendly, though it definitely missed the finer points. ( Our small plates were whisked away before the appetizer arrived so we were sharing it across a table from the platter. We were asked if we wanted bread and one of us replied us but none was delivered. Also, a request to see the wine list again was forgotten initially.) Despite the shortcomings, the server personalities won us over. While we were hopping for an older, cozy, heritage atmosphere, the decor felt more like corporate hotel restaurant. Despite all this, the food carries through and we will be back again. (Note, however, that the bar is more comfortable and accessible, though loud and often crowded around happy hour.)
I had an undeniable craving for a proper English breakfast like my dear old grandmother used to make. An exhaustful search of the various menu's around the metro area finally led us to an amazing brunch at Raven & Rose. The coffee was wonderful, the food delightful and satisfying, and the service was absolutely wonderful. It was a solid win.
Here's what I wrote on Yelp:
The restaurant makes creative and sensitive use of its mid-19th century building. Its menu is interesting and attractive. The food we had (the double pork chop, the tomato bisque soup, and the green salad) was delicious, beautifully presented, and while pricey, worth the cost.
The same cannot be said for the wine. The list is short. The prices simply extortionate. We chose the least expensive bottle on order ($45) and it was mediocre French red. Most offerings were three figures. It's a shame that the management of such an attractive and successful restaurant thinks its a good idea to make the price of an evening out a shock to any but the most well-padded budget.
Out for an evening at the ballet after a hectic day at work for both of us. Early dinner before performance turned out to be just the ticket to a magnificent and totally restorative night. We were expertly cared for by Joe on a very busy night at The Rose. His calm manner and superb service was greatly appreciated. Love this place now and will definitely return. Soon!
I'm very disappointed. Our reservation seated us at the bar, behind the draft beer handles, rather than a table. I may as well have not made a reservation. Service was lousy, food overpriced and my wife and I were still hungry. Worst birthday situation and never going back.
The food and drink was amazing. By far the best food I've ever ate. The rabbit was tender and flavorful. The filet of beef was tender and cooked perfectly. It was a bit busy for a Saturday at 5:30, and the bar tender was like a dozen drinks behind is the only complaint, but still worth it. I'd highly recommend it!
First time at this gem of a restaurant. Sunday brunch before a symphony matinee. We both had bean toast, which may not sound all that appealing, but it consisted of white beans on a thick slab of luscious grilled bread, accompanied by squash and a hearty trumpet (?) mushroom, with delicate greens and a poached egg on top. Our server was engaging and attentive, and the host was gracious. The pub feel was cozy. We have already declared Raven & Rose as our pre-concert meeting spot for the coming season. Plus the building is gold LEED certified, an impressive accomplishment, and makes me like this place that much more.
First, the food was excellent, the venison preparation with huckleberry sauce was fantastic. The beet salad was creative and tasty. However, the wine list is sparse and very very very overpriced. The selection is so weak with only wines that should be a fraction of the cost on it, that I will not return because of it. Also, there was a party, a bachelorette party going on in the main dining room and the staff encouraged the loud and obnoxious screams that disturbed our dinner. It's too bad because the food is excellent.
The food was not what we expected for the price. My husband and son-in-law ordered the steak and they actually thought they were accidentally served pot roast. Considering the price point...not too happy. And the $16 salad with the warm pork belly was very disappointing. Sadly, we won't be back.
The food is excellent and the menu is well thought out, if not a bit limited. The cocktails are awesome, the bar is very well run. Service was a bit below the professional level of the venue and the price point. The wine list was very limited and priced completely out of range vs the cost of the meal or entrees. The ambience was excellent. A very cute and fun space.
