Featuring a classic, upscale décor theme, The Heathman Restaurant offers guests a relaxing place to enjoy a fine meal. A large fireplace in the dining room sets the mood and creates an inviting atmosphere. Located in downtown Portland, the Heathman Restaurant is conveniently located to plenty of hot spots. Indulge in wine, beer or cocktails at the bar, or rent a private dining area for your next event. The lounge features a jazz happy hour for evening entertainment. The Heathman Restaurant's menu has numerous French seafood dishes. Breakfast-inspired dishes, like the eggs benedict with smoked salmon, are great for tea time.
While we've been to the Heathman several times in the past, we left on this occasion upon hearing that the restaurant was serving rabbit on their menu. We found that inappropriate, not only because it's seems odd to serve rabbit on Easter, but more importantly because we have two adorable pet bunnies and we do not want to patronize restaurants that serve rabbit. Rabbits are extremely popular pets. We cannot imagine eating pets.
Nothing special for a special day. Wait person wasn't that busy be we seemed to be an afterthought. We had brunch but was told we were registered for the buffet, but that was ok except there was no feeling of Special for the holiday. Couple of restaurants do a much better job.
Absolutely wonderful. Everything I tried was delicious. The lamb was incredible, as was the pork chop. The creme brulee was to die for. Sad to see recurrent location closing but excited to see what they have in storage later this year!
Ate here before a concert at Schnitzer which is next door. The food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. We had more than enough time to enjoy our dinner before the show.
Had a quick lunch of house salad and risotto at The Heathman Restaurant. Sad to see that it will be changing hands/closing but was delighted to try it now.
Incredibly overpriced--both the food and the wine. Food was good but not gourmet and for that price, we expected gourmet!
We enjoyed the Dining Month menu. In particular, the stuffed rabbit was wonderful and not something I would make at home. The 'regular' menu is quite expensive, and we would not normally go here for dinner. It was nice to be able to enjoy the restaurant through the dining month program.
The only downside is that the dining month menu has no choices within courses. Many restaurants give you a choice of two or more options for each course. If you don't like what is included and you don't want to spend a small fortune, you are SOL.
I ordered the wine pairing for the menu ($15). The Chardonnay was fine. The red, I don't recall the variety, was quite unique and memorable. Worth trying.
Sadly our last visit prior to their pending move. Fishermen's Stew and Chicken dishes hit their mark. We look forward to finding them in their new (as yet undisclosed) location.
We were surprised to learn that Heathman Restaurant had a vegan tasting menu, but decided to give it a try. Not only were all 6 courses a visual treat, but they were distinctively different in texture, flavor, and style. Not only that, but the meal was nutritionally complete with ample protein! Chef Matthew even came out to ask how we liked our dinner, which was an added treat. We loved our experience, but are sad to learn that Heathman Restaurant is closing. Too bad we found out about this gem too late.
I had a window seat overlooking the street, where a running race was taking place on a rainy morning. My server was appropriately attentive, keeping me supplied with coffee and water. the eggs benedict were perfectly cooked, the hollandaise sauce was exquisite. A perfect way to start my Sunday.
