South American
Lechon is a South American dining experience that seamlessly combines the fiery cooking of Argentina, Chile and Patagonia, along with creative inspiration of the chef. Enjoy perfectly charred 28-day dry-aged ribeye, grilled octopus with chorizo, housemade piquillo pepper and pork empanadas, slow roasted lechon, refreshing ceviches and smoked bone marrow.

Executive Chef Jaco Smith consistently pushes the boundaries on traditional Latin fare by incorporating wood-fired flavors into his cuisine while boasting a view of the Willamette River that few Portland restaurants can offer. Smith comes from a large family of cattle, sheep and grain farmers. He started cooking at a young age in his mother’s kitchen. His favorite childhood memories include the tastes of dulce de leche, flan and grilled breads, reminiscent of South American flavors and commonly found on South African kitchen tables.

    My fiance, my fiancé’s friend and I were able to make a 9:30 reservation. We got the foraged mushroom app, duck leg chaufa, and Peruvian chicken. The food was amazing, the vibes were amazing, our server was super sweet. They accidentally burnt the chicken so they gave us some gaucho bread to munch on while making another chicken. I truly loved their service and kindness!

    Scallops are amazing. Ahi ceviche excellent. Christian, our server, was so kind and very knowledgeable about the tapas. Tapas are served family style so you can share. The menu has something for everyone. It’s a very lively atmosphere. Our hostess, Ella, gave us a great table to celebrate our 50th anniversary! I will recommend LeChon to my friends and family.

    My wife and I went here for our second wedding anniversary, this marked our 4th visit to the restaurant. We arrived early but were seated right on time for our reservation. The food came out quick but the drinks took a little longer. They definitely seemed a bit rushed/busy, but other than that no complaints and we just love the food here.

    The food was delicious. We ordered the empanadas, lomo, steak and frites, and patatas. Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was great. The only downside was that we were seated by the kitchen area and could not see the aquariums, but that wasn’t a big deal.

    The food and our sever are beyond excellent. However the hostess told us we had to go right after we paid but we were still eating and finishing our drinks. It was rude and we felt like we were being rushed out. It’s not like we ordered one dish and sat there for 3 hours.
