"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 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.

"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."

Little Bird, the bistro by the team behind Le Pigeon, is open from 11:30 to midnight during the week, and from 5 to midnight on the weekends. The food and ambiance are inspired by the bistros of Paris, but are Portland at heart. Little Bird features a great bar, and a large selection of wines with a focus on French, as well as a selection of local options.

"We really love to eat out and appreciate great food and service. Little Bird is still #1! We started with a gnocchi dish on pea puree and black garlic butter . . . spectacular! For the main dish, my spouse had a crab salad sandwich and I had the burger. (I know . . . the burger again, yet this one really is among the best.) My spouse loved the sandwich (and I took a bite). The flavors really are distinct and do meld well. For dessert, we had the mint ice cream, which tasted just like fresh mint. Throughout the meal, the server and his colleagues were great!"

"I really like the "Radish" cocktail, very tasty & inventive. We both split the kale salad and each had the trout for dinner. I love trout, and this one is among the best I've had! It was a great evening overall, and the staff was professional and friendly for the entire experience."

"We come reasonably often to Gilda's, and this evening gave us reason to continue to come back. We started with the caprese special; the burrata was perfect and the heirloom tomatoes were delicious. My spouse had the spaghetti & meatballs, and I had the eggplant rigatoni. My spouse always gets that dish, as it is her absolute favorite in town. I have tried many dishes here, though I think this may be my new favorite. The spice in the sauce was a perfect foil to the eggplant. We finished with the affrogato; simple yet elegant."

"It's always hard to top other restaurants in Portland, yet the Woodsman did so in spades. We came before the reservation and sat at the bar. The service was great, the cocktails were excellent and the conversation with the staff made the short stay very pleasant. When we sat down for dinner, the superb service continued. The server explained the dishes very well, and the delivery of each course was timed perfectly. (It was also very busy, which adds to the degree of difficulty.) The deviled eggs are superb, and the watermelon salad was a true highlight of the evening. For entrees, we had the salmon, the trout and the pork. Each was very different, and all were delicious. We will absolutely return to this restaurant!"
