I had the five-course tasting menu, and every item was tasty, creative, and ethically sourced. The waitress was competent and friendly. I had an excellent time.
This small dining room is the bargain of the century. The food is excellent and inexpensive considering what it is. We like to do the wine pairing with the tasting menu. Highly recommend this place.
Really a special place. I brought friends for the first time to Uptown to experience their dinner. Everything was as expected. The dinner from sit down to check lasted for over three hours. Really disappointed in that. Hard to enjoy dinner when the service is so slow.
Just finished another amazing five course menu with Chef Scott. The subtleness of the flavors explode in the mouth creating a need to always go back again and again. I think we talk about this food for at least a week after we have eaten it. Hood strawberries Mmmmm. Nowhere else in Portland will you get an award winning chef, creating amazing cuisine at a ridiculous price. You would be foolish not to be a regular here!!!!!
We love this place and the chefs menu. Always had good food with a variety of flavors. Service is good with knowledgeable staff. Wine paired with the food is solid as well. We enjoy tasting wines from countries that I wouldn't normally buy from like Austria.
The new chef hit the "Ocean" theme out of the ball park! Wow! We were a bit worried, but look forward to many creative, delicious meals to come! Kudos.
Outstanding; they have a new chef Scott, and he does a excellent job. Presentation is superb, and each plate was so nicely built I don't understand how this place is not booked month in advance. In my opinion this should be easily a one star Michellin. Every two weeks they change the five course menu, can't wait for the next one. Definitely worth every penny.
Chef's tasting menu was incredible. The wine pairings were even better. Loved the Oceans theme. Well done! Great service. Good beer before dinner.
We had the 5 course tasting menu to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed the "Ocean" theme, the creativity & presentation, as well as the variety of flavors and textures. It was great fun to read the menu and try to anticipate what might actually by on our plates when they were served! The wine pairings were excellent. Touches of bright colors and fresh, raw ingredients would be a nice addition.
They have a new chef. Think his name is Scott. Great chef. The 5 course dinner was really excellent: food was great, plating was beautiful, Michelin-star dinning experience, and for less than $40 !!
Fantastic meal !!!
Wow. Chef Scot takes food to a whole different level in his five course legume menu. Such a cacophony of flavors stimulating the senses
Some of the food excellent but service V_E_R_Y slow and no sound buffering from all the activity around the restaurant area
My friend wanted a little bit of everything, but not too much of anything, and it all to be fabulous. I knew just the place. Uptown Billiards Tasting Menu is to die for. 5-10 bites per course. You enjoy the whole thing and are never STUFFED, but 100% satisfied. By the 5th course, though, you are close to stuffed. :) Try the wine pairings! It's a deal and never disappoints! I love the rotating menus and the themed courses. The ingredient selection and menu preparation is ridiculously delicious. The presentation alone feels wildly indulgent. Go! Take Everyone! So Good!
Uptown billiards features a small curtained dining room with a nice selection of well made small and large plates and a weekly tasting menu, a well-stocked bar, a nice jazz soundtrack in the background and lots of well maintained pool tables in two wood-paneled rooms. Service is friendly and prompt but you can linger. A great evening of food, drink and pool. What can beat that?
This is a culinary experience that takes your breath away! Every single dish in the tasting menu "The Legumes" was spectacular! The wines were just the right accompaniment for the food. The pace of serving dishes, the way we were waited was very comforting and well- suited for the occasion. The time and money worth spending. Thank you, Kent and Co.!
The new chef is doing a nice job. Great meal and overall experience.
Great service and wine pairings from owner and his daughter, Zan. New chef is outstanding.
The pre-arranged meal was excellent and the service was very attentive. The only negative to this night was parking in this neighborhood. It's very crowded.
The five course meal is exceptional. The service is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. One of my favorite spots in Portland and a place we'll keep coming back to for year ahead.
Fun and full of activities.
