"Clearly, this is a place that has a great reputation, and they deliver! We started with a lobster salad, that had fantastic flavor combinations. For the entrees, we had the beef cheeks bourginon and the rockfish. They were prepared very well and tasted great. For dessert, we shared a small peach pie, which was fabulous and sized perfectly. The wine by the glass list is curated superbly; we enjoyed everything that we had."

The Farm Café in Southeast Portland, showing proper respect to the humble bounty of the Pacific Northwest since 2003. Dinner served seven nights a week.<br /><br />Reservations can be made online or by calling. We also save a number of tables for walk-ins. Outside dining available. Our no reservation patio is seated first come, first served. <br /><br />

"We started with cocktails, which were very well prepared. We started with an olive tapenade crostini that was really great; the crostini was toasted perfectly. For entrees, we had the trout and the tuna. Both were seasoned and cooked perfectly, plus the sides were paired nicely."

"We had come for dinner a couple of times, so we decided to try brunch. Wow! We started with the smoked mussels, which are really, really addictive. We had some bloody marys before the main course, which had just about the right level of spice. For entrees, we had the eggs benedict, a couple of biscuits and the pancakes. EVERYTHING was delicious! The service was probably the best we have had at a brunch. Woodsman is a first class experience at any time of day. We will return for the biscuit!"

"Each of us had the one of the two tasting menus. The food was really remarkable and inventive. Plus, the service was impeccable. The staff explained each dish very well and were truly friendly and appreciative. Everything was a highlight, yet the bruleed peaches for dessert really stood out for me."

"We come to the bar often and De used to have dinner. I had a negroni to start and we split a simple salad. My spouse had the salmon, and I had the pasta, which was very flavorful. We will certainly return!"

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.

"We started with an order of onion rings, which are a must. They were fabulous. For entrees, we all ordered fish, nearly all ordered the King Salmon from Oregon waters. Everybody really enjoyed the entree and accompaniments. For dessert we shared a few of the house made donuts, also delicious. We brought a few bottles of wine, and the server was great about opening and pouring the bottles. We have always experienced great service here and will be back again."

At Imperial, Chef/Owner Paley and Chef de Cuisine Doug Adams will re-imagine and re-present Pacific Northwest culinary pathways. Exemplifying Oregon’s own James Beard's culinary philosophy, Chef/Owner Paley and Chef de Cuisine Doug Adams 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.

"We go to Imperial often and have never been disappointed. We brought another couple this evening, and they loved it too. We all started with cocktails, which were excellent. (My spouse even went beyond the fabulous Radish cocktail this time.) We split the kale salad to start, which is very tasty. For entrees, my spouse had the trout and I had the house made pasta. Both were exceptional. We also shared many of the sides (broccoli, cauliflower and the fabulous Parker House rolls). As usual, we ate too much to try dessert, though we did give serious consideration to sharing the delicious pie! As always, a very good place to have an excellent casual meal."

Located at the crossroads of Portland"s Business and Art Districts, the Picnic House is a excellent place for a quick, great-tasting lunch before heading back to work as well as the perfect place for dinner and drinks before or after seeing a show at one of Portland's theaters. Built out of the lobby of the original 1920's Heathman Hotel, the Picnic House offers a great ambiance of 30-foot vaulted ceilings and fluted wood columns along with Steam Punk touches of a monocled bear in a bowler hat and walls covered in moss and mosaics of copper printing plates. Head chef Jessica Grimmer creates seasonal menus that are familiar and nostalgic yet different and daring enough to peak both your interest and your appetite.

"I had gone a couple of weeks ago and was impressed. So, I decided to return with my spouse. We had a really good experience. The service was super friendly, plus they were short one person . . . thus, they get extra points for degree of difficulty. We had a great suggestion for a glass of Pinot Blanc from Alsace; kudos to the server. EVERYTHING on the menu sounds amazing, so one is almost forced to choose the "sampler" portions. The kitchen fulfilled the promise. The mushroom soup was very fresh and perfectly salted. The salads had the right mix of ingredients and the roasted tomato sandwich was full flavored. PS - They are opening a cocktail bar next door - Harlow - so that will make the list too!"

"We had a great experience about 2 weeks ago, so we decided to return. Everything, especially the service, was excellent. Every person seemed happy to see us and were very friendly. We started with some oysters, deviled eggs and french fries. The deviled eggs, in particular, are superb. We had a peach & cucumber salad next . . . delicious. For entrees, we had the salmon & the meatloaf. Both dishes were really good. We wanted to have dessert, though we were way too full! It was a great experience . . . again!"

"We are not going to do that again. Everything about the food and experience were perfect. The pacing of the meal was great and everything tasted wonderful. We started with a simple salad and a Mediterranean plate. Both were delicious and the spreads on the plate were quite inventive. For entrees, my spouse had the salmon special and I had the steak. The proteins were absolutely excellent and cooked to temperature, plus the flavors in the accompaniments were superb. We finished with the cherry pie . . . fabulous."
