Tucked away in the lovely tree lined Danville Livery, Martini Sky is a small plate’s style restaurant and cocktail lounge where you can come to simply enjoy great food, great wine, fun drinks and good company. It is our take on tapas-style dinning, offering small plates meant to be shared amongst friends to create a social dining experience. We are focused on taking traditional flavors and cooking styles, bringing them to life with creative combinations and bold presentations. The menus at Martini Sky are strikingly adventurous with amazing twists on American favorites, some with an Asian flare, that are designed so guests can order large or small portions without "over ordering" or breaking the bank. With no less than 20 choices on the menu at all times, our kitchen will cultivate dishes that explode with bold flavors and are designed to please even the most discerning palates. <br /><br />2013/2014 OpenTable Dinner's Choice Award Winner<br />We hope you join us soon!

"We love the new chef inspired menu and a balancing of different foods within the same cuisine together rather than the previous menu which had to much variety. Sounds like a weird complaint I know, but it left us feeling like there was no identity in the menu. The focus has moved from just another bar to a more modern lounge with food choices that compliment the upbeat jazz type music and relaxed yet classy atmosphere. We had the Pork and Bean and Hamburger, both were terrific and the portions perfect."

Welcome to Bread and Ink Café, a Portland place to dine. Situated in the heart of the Hawthorne district, we have been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to locals and tourists alike for over 30 years. Our menus are creative and eclectic, focusing on seasonal offerings from the rich products of the Willamette Valley. Bite into our unique and popular Chicken and Liege Waffles, with lemon Parmesan cream and maple syrup, or savor handmade biscuits with our sausage gravy and eggs. Or come for dinner and select from salads with fresh dressings, steaks, risotto, wild-caught salmon and juicy burgers fashioned in-house and served on our buns with homemade mayonnaise, mustard and the ketchup we have been making all these years. Enjoy watching the world go by from our bright, airy dining room while sipping on one of our contemporary top-shelf cocktails. Save room for dessert, the owners" specialty, or for Max's salted caramel ice cream. Dine well and leave happy!

"We were in Portland from California and just gave it a try. We had the whole family including two kids under 5yrs old and the entire staff was very friendly, accommodating and patient. The food was terrific and the specialty drinks amazing!"

"Wow, we had the corn gnocchi, smoked half chicken, and tuna cod ceviche appetizer which were fantastic! The flavor combinations and the use of fresh melon for the summer made the dishes. Our waiter was so friendly, engaging, and attentive it really made it a wonderful experience. The drinks were terrific too, the Mojo Rizer (minus cilantro for me I'm allergic) super refreshing. We love that they change up the food and drink menus, always trying different things and that make it even more fun."

"We were seated outside as requested and it was terrific! Our waiter was helpful and friendly, just the right attentiveness despite how busy it was (there was a concern that night). We made a last minute reservation, which is why I love Open Table because I can always get a table. I was a bit disappointed with the Reuben sandwich :-( The meat was tasty, but way to oily and it made the bread soggy. Too bad cause the flavor was there."

Ristorante Piatti features a menu with recipes complimenting the various regions of Italy. It has a casual yet sparkling atmosphere with authentic regional Italian cuisine. Piatti's success can be attributed to its staff and its approach to food, wine, and the dining experience.

"Well I have been very vocal about the decline and then sporadic improvement in food taste, service, and management however, I will say our experience this time was significantly improved. My food was seasoned and tasty, our waiter very friendly and attentive, and really enjoyed our dinner with friends."
