Everyone loved their food. Sauces and broths were fabulous. My Lyonnaise salad was too vinegary for my taste, but its ingredients were perfect and delicious. Duck a l'orange, mussels, crab gratin... very French. Very good.
I wish there was a way to give half stars but there is not so rating largely errs to higher score with exception of service; this is a solid 5 star rating. If bonus points could be given I would do so. We had a patient, very knowleagble wait person who was able to dial in our palates with a few questions and gave solid recommendations. Portions are generous at this restaurant. The cuisine is good but not outstanding in my opinion. It is possible to elevate basic faire to exceptional level but not in this dining experience. Things were not in balance and one element always stood out. If there was a sweet component to a dish it overpowered the flavor, if smoke was a component this was the driving flavor in everything. Palate fatigue ensues. It’s a pleasant place but loud for intimate conversation. I enjoyed the discovery but don’t need to revisit.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day and the experiences was very good overall, good drinks, good food and romantic ambience.
My wife and I had an amazing meal and great cocktails! The staff was very attentive. The only problem is that we wish we could afford to eat here every weekend but then it wouldn't be as specially maybe.. great job!
It continues to be a dining gem. SE Pdx misses them. It made for a lovely Valentine's meal.
We had a wonderful, memorable Valentine’s date. The food and drinks were extraordinary.
The food has been consistently fabulous.....if you could find a way to dampen the noise that would make it perfect!
THe food was delicious, the cocktails were awesome. The main problem was the service. We waited almost 30 min for someone to stop by our table after we were seated, and after our food came out, no one came by again for quite awhile. I wanted to order more wine and even dessert, but there was no one to take the order. There was a large party in the restaurant at the same time, and I realize that requires quite a bit of attention, but we were completely ignored.
Everything was tasty as usual. My dish was lukewarm however.
Waiter was slow to come back around. To our table each time.
Noise level is becoming a distractor to everything g else that is so good about this restaurant.
Wonderful ambiance. Very cozy. Enjoyed the service. Not rushed. Wine and drinks menu expectedly varied and deep. Will return.
