Located in the 1898 renovated Union Station, just minutes from the Pearl and downtown Portland. Our cozy red wing back chairs provide guests with an intimate escape from the world. 'Mad Men' atmopshere best describes the lounge and it's modern take on classic cocktails, while listening to the best jazz, performed up-close and personal. Chef Deb Serkoian and expert staff prepare local and regional dishes with a modern twist. Award winning caesar salad, Steak Diane, fresh local seafood, wide selection of appetizers and a great burger or reuben, as well. Parties and events for 2 to 2000, call Candace to begin your planning, just a few questions away from creating what you need...lunch, dinner, receptions and more. Opentable reservations are for the 'dining room' only, and for 'dinner menu' only. Reservations for our 'lounge' area are not accepted through Opentable, there is an additional cover charge for music Wednesday through Saturday. Thank you for your consideration of this policy.

"We brought several friends this time. As usual, we shared the mushroom bread pudding, which is remarkable. For appetizers, we all tried salads and one had the french onion soup. For entrees, we tried much of the entrees. The favorites were the pasta, salmon & steak diane (made tableside). Overall, the experience was very good, particularly with a live jazz band playing in the bar."

"We came for Easter and had the biscuit plate, several orders of eggs & grits and the eggs sardou. Sardou is a great combination of spinach, artichokes and poached eggs . . . very tasty. As usual, the cocktails and the live music set the mood. We finished with an order of delicious beignets."

At Imperial, Chef/Owner Paley and Executive Chef Bettinger will re-imagine and re-present Pacific Northwest culinary pathways. Exemplifying Oregon’s own James Beard's culinary philosophy, Chef/Owner Paley and Executive Chef Bettinger will explore menu ideas that have historic significance while exploring cooking methods and ingredients from the diverse bounty of our region. The most prominent feature of Imperial's kitchen is an impressive wood fire grill and rotisserie that will incorporate the use of native hard and fruitwoods. Inspired by warm, primitive, burning campfires and the big open spaces of the Pacific Northwest, Imperial will concentrate on natural and uncomplicated preparations, serving the community by celebrating its past and providing a welcoming and generous place to eat.

Bluehour means different things to different people. In French literature it describes any time of day "of heightened emotion." In Portland it has come to mean "a great place to dine."<br /><br />As the premier modern restaurant in the Pearl District, Bluehour opened its doors in 2000, with what Gourmet Magazine describes as, "the most sophisticated, contemporary food in town." Guests choose between the elegant dining room or the casual café and bar.<br /><br><br><br />Simple, delicious and classic describes the Mediterranean cuisine we create in the Bluehour kitchen each night. The menu is printed daily, but Bluehour standards remain, like the pillowy potato gnocchi with black truffle and the perfectly seared, bacon wrapped sea scallops. Our cheese cart is among the finest on the West Coast, featuring regional and international artisan cheeses.

"We started with cocktails, which were very well prepared. For appetizers, we shared a dozen oysters, which were perfect. My colleague had the foie gras, and I had the cauliflower salad. We raved about them. For entrees, we had the black cod and the salmon. Both were cooked perfectly with nice flavor components. Prior to dessert, we had a cheese course of mild cheeses, which were all fantastic. For dessert, we had a sorbet and the creme brulee. Overall, the meal was very satisfying and provided an excellent venue for a business dinner."

A contemporary Northwest fish house with a modern accent.<pr>It has been said that "nature writes the menu" and this adage guides the approach of our culinary path from the seasons of fresh fish to the harvest of the produce. We are fortunate to be close to the ocean and walking distance to a premier farmer's market.

"Everybody was very friendly from the front door to the table. They made a great impression. I started with some fresh oysters that were perfect, and we shared a small onion ring, which were very tasty. My spouse had the salmon & I had a strip steak. Both dishes were prepared very well and presented perfectly. Throughout the evening, the service was exceptional. We really had a great experience."

"We went for brunch, and were very happy to see that a guitar jazz trio was playing. The music was a perfect backdrop to our conversation on a Sunday afternoon. My three friends ordered biscuits & jam plus some eggs. They all really liked the food, particularly the jalapeno jam. I ate the Debris po' boy, which was fabulous. Yes, the french fries were also grand."

"We began the meal by sharing the gnocci special; it was made with a cheese sauce that was really spectacular. For entrees, we had the pasta with sauce and the ravioli special. The portions are very generous for the price, so we both had to take a box home. (We were very happy to take some home, as we got to extend our great meal for another day.)"

"We arrived a little early for our reservation, so we sat at the bar. The cocktails were exceptional. (We had the New Money & Radish walked into a bar.) The bartenders were so good, that we decided to eat at the bar. We started with the vegetable galette with a romesco sauce & arugula. It was superb! My spouse had the grilled shrimp, and I had the pork chop. We also shared the (excellent) french fries. The pork chop was served with a peppered honey, which was a perfect pairing. We had a great experience."

"Frequently, restaurants with a view underperform when it comes to food. CUSP outperforms. The flavor combinations are quite creative and always tasty. On this visit, we particularly liked the rhubarb crisp with basil ice cream; truly excellent. A great high point is the bar, which makes excellent cocktails (even has a few "build your own" alternatives). And, yes, the view of LaJolla and the Shores is spectacular."

A tradition to many La Jollans, this Italian bistro serves fresh authentic regional Italian cuisine. A landmark Ficus tree takes up one corner of their very popular patio, but the bright and cheerful dining room is delightful during the day or on those chilly evenings when it’s too cold to sit outside. The menu is presented in an innovative and creative fashion offering a wide variety of pastas, pizza and grilled items. In addition, you may find many vegetarian and health conscious dishes. Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday and includes specialties such as Uovo Benedetto (Eggs Benefits served on grilled polenta with basil hollandaise) along with omelets and breakfast pizzas.

"When in the neighborhood we always go here. It's so consistent that the menu does not change. Even so, the specials are always intriguing. This night, we split the ceaser, I had a sausage pizza and my spouse had the trout special. I really liked the pizza, particularly the thin crust. My spouse loved the trout. Very good experience."
