Overall I would go here again for meeting
Great food and outstanding customer service! We loved the selection of menu items. There is something for everyone!
Way to noisy and the service was extremely slow. They didn't appear to have enough servers.
Great food. Fun
The Picnic House was a wonderful place to dine. Wonderful ambience, great service, and creative, delicious meals. Would highly recommend for everyday dining or special occasions.
Best place in town for lunch, love the choices for mix and match sandwiches, soups and salads.
Service was good. Food was mediocre. My son had the lamb chops, he really enjoyed them. I had the salmon poke, not thrilled about it. The roasted Brussels Sprouts and Brocolli were delicious.
Always a wonderful experience:)
The only reason I didn't give it a solid 5 stars all the way across was noise. The high ceilings make for a noisy interior. Ask for a table as far back as possible. It's a bit better the closer you are to the bar.
This place tries to be both low-brow and high-brow at the same time and ultimately fails. Who really wants an expensive picnic? Might as well pay that price for better food. The muffaletta was especially disappointing---small, thin, hardly any meat on it and few extras. Potato chips looked like the bottom of the bag, all broken up. The burger was also underwhelming and on a tiny bun, leaving me with nothing to hold on to in the eating process.
Great place for lunch!
Bacon Sandwich has gotten a little lite on the bacon and very heavy on the arugula, so a little disappointing; but the soups and salads are still great. Service is still excellent.
This was my first visit and I was delighted as was my partner. I found it on Google Maps as we were attending an event at the Schnitzer. I looked at the menu and decided to try it. Glad we did. Will definitely return. Service was prompt. Food was hot and very, very good. Mushroom soup outstanding.
I’ve lived in Portland for a couple of years now, and I think I found my new favorite place. The prices don’t make you gag, it is pretty casual, and the food and drinks are sooo good! Great spot!
Very pleasant; generous portions and good quality.
Great spot for a quick Business lunch. Nice variety on the menu and friendly, efficient service.
Plusses: Unique interior. Great menu. Some fun quirky touches. Food beautifully presented.
Things that could be better: Too long wait of a wait to be greeted, let alone seated.
I loved the Picnic House! This decor and concept is so adorable and made for a great experience. The food was so good, especially their house-made Brioche bread featured on their cheese plates. The service was great, I have no complaints other than it got a little cold from the door opening and closing on a brisk winter night.
Have been to PH a few times. Love the mushroom soup and burger. Drinks are tasty. Very disappointed with the culotte sirloin. Bite size medallions. More like an appetizer than a main. Had to order a burger in addition. Service was good but it took FOREVER for the food to come out. We barely made it to the symphony. Probably going to skip PH next time.
I love exquisite flavors and picnic house doesn’t disappoint. Very creative and always delicious, whether for soup and sandwich for lunch or salmon or lamb chops for dinner.
Great location to eat before or after a performance at the Schnitzer or Performing Arts Center
Our waitress Gina was AMAZING! Her recommendations & service was phenomenal!!!
We try to go here every time we are in Portland. It's our favorite lunch spot. Cost is reasonable for Portland and lunch options are awesome. Love the three choice option with a cup of soup, small specialty salad and 1/2 sandwich (served on a small crusty roll). My favorite is the tomato soup, berry salad and turkey sandwich combo. They also have a two choice option. Food is not standard but looks and tastes great. Great ice tea.
Food was amazing, especially the Brussels sprouts and Mushroom Soup and the Affogato dessert! Definitely new fav place before going to the Schnitz!
Great food, better drinks and amazing service! Especially on Valentines. Piano was an excellent touch.
Food was good but not enough to justify the price.
Great place to have dinner before a concert or event! Nice cocktails!
Always love this place for lunch. Today it was more quiet than normal and service was very fast.
Feels like a French bistro. Tasty food and great staff. Good value.
As always excellent....& a superb wait staff ...she was a hoot as well!
We went to the Picnic House before a lecture series with friends. We had a lovely dinner! The food was excellent.
Great experience. Nice server. Tasty lunch- a great balance of eating healthy and tasting great flavors!
Nice ambiance in an old hotel setting. Creative menu and the food was really good. Very nice wait staff. Food gets to you amazingly fast.
Great for a quick work lunch. Mixture of fast and service with quality food. You can do it in under an hour!
Food was delicious. Small portions when you do the picnic. But everything tasted amazing. Would definitely go back again
Our server was incredibly kind and hilarious. The food was amazing, that butternut squash Mac and cheese is seriously awesome along with the burger. Very light dinner crowd which made for a mellow dinner. Definitely will be back!!
Food was delicious had the 3 pick with salad, soup, and lamb chops. Lamb was prepared perfectly. This is a great place.
Lovely meal as always!
Fantastic place, great food, best of the best service and staff.
Great evening out with friends. Fresh menu with lots of fun options! Waiter was very attentive and helpful with the menu and our needs.
