"We were in Portland during a "blizzard" and didn't want to go far from our hotel. This cute neighborhood restaurant was delightful. They serve a delicious bluefish pate which I haven't had since the old days in Legal Seafood in Boston. Legal got rid of it a few years back, so I was really happy to have some again. Otherwise, the restaurant uses a lot of spice. If you are into spicy, you will be happy with the menu. I'm not into spice so much, but the bluefish pate was not spicy. Husband really enjoyed his shrimp and other dishes. I even tried the mole ice-cream although I was warned it would be spicy, it wasn't too bad. I would definitely return when I am in Portland and keep picking around the spicy dishes for ones I prefer."

"We have dined at Coi before and wanted to see what this new casual place by the same chef was like. It's a work in progress. Some basics of service are missing. They need to refill the minuscule water glasses more often. A trip to the ladies room through the heart of the kitchen is interesting and one gets to meet the dishwashers as well, but one wonders how the SF Health Department ever allowed this patron invasion. Some of the dishes work and some don't. We sent one back and they took it off our bill, which we appreciated. I probably would have given Alta a higher rating if my expectations weren't so high, but my current expectations are that this place will improve and that the next time I will be able to give Alta a higher rating."
