We were so happy to see that Roe was open and available for reservations. In the past we had always reserved through open table. So we again reserved through Open Table. We were surprised and sadden when we received a confirmation call/message from Roe saying that since we reserved through open table we were only going to get the 4 course menu option. That really surprised us because I did not see that mention on Open Table. We hadn't look at the Roe website when we made our reservation so we were not aware that there is a different site you need to go to to reserve for the 7 course menu.

We still went and enjoyed the 4 course with wine pairings but again was sadden to watch other patrons get the 7 course menu.

Another note to point out. We asked to have a copy of the menu with us while we ate so we could experience and note all the great ingredients in each dish. When we received the menu, the menu had the cavier option on the menu but it was not on the menu we originally received. That was again disappointing as that was something we had been looking forward to and would have ordered given the opportunity.

We plan to go again in the near future because we love the new location and want to experience the full menu. Unfortunately we will not be able to reserve through open table unless that changes.

Overall outstanding. Quite the gustatory tour de force. Every single item on the tasting menu was fantastic in tastes well as presentation. Very wide variety of seafoods prepared many different ways. We had the caviar as well, which was superb. The wine pairings were excellently chosen. Would definitely go again. It is expensive, however. Very expensive.

We were prepared for the Roe experience, having read the reviews and perused their website. We had an exceptional meal, served graciously, with plenty of time to relax and enjoy each course. We had the theater menu, 4 courses, and a bottle of wine. The meal was delicious. Each bite was savored and enjoyed fully. We never felt rushed, we were treated impeccably. The meal was very expensive, not something I would do on a weekly basis, but definitely a restaurant for seafood lovers and foodies, and the entire evening was designed and crafted to have the ambiance and the environment compliment the food. A wonderful evening that I'll look forward to repeating again.

The food was excellent. The service was excellent. The wine was excellent. The price was excessive. I do not think that any dinner is worth over $400 for 2. I'm glad I went but it will be a long time before we return.

For me and my wife this was our second visit at Roe and just like the first one - it was spectacular. The food, the service, the wine - everything here is perfect. If you consider yourself a foodie and want to try fine dining, than dinner at Roe is a must! We will be coming back again and again (for our special occasions). The price is high but the food is worth every penny!

Roe is clearly one of the top 25 restaurants in United States. I think Portland is overhyped has a restaurant city because most of the restaurants that do well in Portland could never do well in bigger cities like New York or Los Angeles or Chicago. However Roe could hold its own with any top
restaurant In any city . Trent and his team are literally fish geniuses

My meal at Roe was one of the best meals of my life, right up there with a revelatory meal at Chez Panisse in the early 90s. I was worried that it would be overly precious and fussy, but the quality of each dish overcame any concerns. We had the 7 course tasting menu instead of the 5 course, and although I was incredibly full, I was happy I tried everything. Service was impeccable. Roe deserves all the accolades it receives.

Roe is hands down the best seafood restaurant in town and one of the best and most innovative and inventive restaurants overall; right up with Le Pigeon and Castagna. This was my fifth experience and it was the best yet. My friend and I had the full tasting menu with the wine paring. It was a delight from beginning to end. Our server was friendly and informative. We heard that Roe is closing its Division street location and moving downtown. I am hoping that the new location is just as lovely, and quiet and food focused as the current sanctum.

This was the best meal that we have had in a long time. They seated us in time and they were very attentive. The meal is a fixed price and we had the 5 courses. Each one is perfect and a good size. Overall we left not stuffed but full. The food was impeccably served and of the highest quality.
Overall a great place to go!!

I have been lucky enough to enjoying the tasting menus at some of the best restaurants in the country such as the French Laundry in Yountville, Del Posto in NYC and most pertinently, the now closed Aqua in SF. Roe is the equal to any of them. The wine pairings were superb (not an easy feat with only white wine in my experience.) The food was sensational. Precisely executed innovation without pretense. Sadly not the kind of place I can go to on a regular basis, but if you are looking to experience the art of cooking, I highly recommend Roe.

My favorite restaurant by far in Portland! Except for dessert, the entire menu is seafood, so if you are not a seafood lover, it is probably not worth visiting. But if you like seafood (and don't mind your fish on the raw side), it is an extraordinary dining experience.

I absolutely adore this place for date nights that you want to go the extra mile or just trust that you will have a wonderful time. My partner is pesceterian so it's tricky to find a great place for both of us but is no problem here. I recommend the wine pairings and if you can afford it the caviar is fantastic.
Working in the industry myself I really value great food with great service while also feeling inspired and cared for and Roe has never let me down. Worth every penny.
I'm excited to see how the new location expands the menu!

Almost indescribable. I can still taste everything I had when I close my eyes...which is subsequently how my boyfriend ate most of his meal, he loved it so much. One of he most beautiful experiences we have ever had with food. Wonderful atmosphere, service, drinks, lighting- wouldn't change a thing. Going to save up all year to take us for our anniversary and make it a tradition.

One of the best places to eat in Portland!! Love it every time. The menu and tastes are amazing and the service is exceptional. The flavors and textures are so unique and oh so yummy. Do yourself a favor and go! Oh and it's at the very back of another restaurant so the entrance is a little mysterious as well.

As always, an incredible experience. We have dined here on multiple occasions with guests and as a couple . I really can't add more to previous posts, apart from dishes and service just keeps getting even more refined. Friendly, never pretentious, and ever-so-slightly Jeeves-like service. Chefs are some of the most thoughtful and caring I have ever met.
Great wine list, superb flavors, beautiful environment.

We were amazed at the food at Roe. It was incredibly delicious and very well presented. The service was perfect. We did the 4 course meal and was afraid we would still be hungry afterward, but that was not the case at all. In fact, I couldn't finish my dessert which my boyfriend gladly finished for me. The only thing we weren't keen on was how close the tables were to each other. It's a very small restaurant so the tables are right next to each other and we could hear the couple's conversation next to us which made our conversation difficult. Not the most romantic for date night feeling like you are sharing a table with strangers, but the food and drinks made up for it. We would definitely dine at Roe again and highly recommend it. It's pricey, but for a special occasion, well worth the cost.

I'm not sure what I loved more, the exquisite food or the most lovely staff I've encountered in any restaurant in Portland. We started with the trio of caviar and I'm so glad we did, all 3 were heavenly. Then the real games started, we ooooed and awed our way through each of the 4 courses of dinner, not a beat was missed, in fact, Roe truly beats to it's own drum. The dishes all had a risk factor (frozen foie gras?) and all delivered their own spectacular flavors and beautiful presentation. This was our by far our biggest hit in Portland so far...and we have hit all the must-go-to spots. A big part was the atmosphere and the staff. Maybe I'm getting old (not that old though) but I swear many of the best restaurants are so loud you can't even have a conversation without screaming, it's exhausting. Roe was inviting and warm, Mark and Salvador felt like family. We couldn't have had better experience!

Easily the best food I've ever had, wine pairings were perfect. Ambiance was very nice, but struggled for intimacy and we had to kill a fruit fly or two. Hence 4 stars. Very, very expensive meal, that being the only reason it is difficult to label a good value.

This was my third time at Roe. As with the previous times, the seafood-focused dishes were all inventive and delicious. My friend and I each got different dishes and shared them, which gave us an eight course tasting menu with wine pairings. The service was excellent, as usual.

The food and service were amazing! One disappointment was that while we were there, they must have been frying some stuff because our clothes smelled like fried food when we walked out :-(... maybe they should look into better ventilation?

Regardless, everything else was great. We've been there a few times and would definitely come back (hopefully not smelling like fried food afterwards!)
