"We started with the Misto salad and the Frito Mista. Both were excellent, especially the fried calamari and shrimp. For entrées, we had the Spaghetti Meatballs plus the special risotto. Truly delicious! We will return."

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 go here frequently and always leave happy. We started with a special appetizer, which was delicious. My spouse had the trout, which was perfect, and I had the steak frites, which was prepared perfectly. For dessert, we had a popover with ice cream, that was amazing. As usual, the service was perfect . . . as attentive as we wanted."

Paragon is a neighborhood gastropub serving ingredient-driven, honest food, craft beers, unique cocktails and eclectic wines. This trendy Portland restaurant seamlessly combines an art gallery setting with an urban alehouse, creating the perfect neighborhood spot for mingling at the bar or enjoying a cozy dinner with friends at a booth in the corner. The approachable cuisine is grounded in the familiar with new twists and variations that keep things interesting.

"We really love this place. The family-recipe pasta dishes set the standard in Portland. That said, the meat and fish dishes are excellent, so it is much more than many more famous places in town."

Mucca Osteria serves truly authentic Italian cuisine in a warm, elegant atmosphere. We make our bread, pasta, and desserts fresh in house using traditional Italian recipes. Located in the heart of downtown Portland, Chef/Sommelier Simone Savaiano carefully sources ingredients from local farmers and prepares dishes that will transport you to Italy. Our extensive wine list includes over 190 labels from various regions of Italy. For the ultimate dining experience, Mucca’s five-course tasting menu offers an array of memorable appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Grazie, ci vediamo presto!

"We had a medium sized group and everyone enjoyed the flavors and mouthfeel of their choices. From the risotto to the salads to the pasta and proteins, each person was impressed."

"It's great for dinner too! The menu is a good mix of standards and new plates. The entire menu, including the wine list has the perfect size and variety for any eater. My spouse had the crabcake sandwich, and I had the cold mussels & gnocci dishes. Each bite was excellent, and we can't wait for our next meal next year!"

"We both started with cocktails, which were very good (though they shake the Manhattan). For starters, we both had the mista salad. For entrees, my spouse had the spaghetti & meatballs, which is her favorite in Portland. I had the Pasta Norma, which was also very good. We had ice cream for dessert (which I think is made in house)."

"We both started with cocktails, which were superb. For starters, one had oysters and the other had a simple frisee salad. For entrees, one had the fish special, which was prepared perfectly and the other had the chicken fried trout, which was perfect. The food always looks great and tastes great. The service is always very good."

"We started with the smoked mussels again, which are consistently tasty. For the main course, my spouse ordered a mushroom tart, which she really likes (and orders often). I had the beef cheeks, which were amazingly tender. The beets that accompanied the main course were very well paired. We had cocktails, which is nearly required from the superb bar and bartenders. They were all delicious."

Equinox offers fresh, hand made seasonal cuisine in a relaxed and unassuming atmosphere. Pacific Northwest ingredients inspire new dishes and amplify classic combinations. Ambitious, affordable menus bring the urbane and the rustic together on plates, in glasses, and on chairs.<br /><br />Dine in our open industrial space or, when the weather is nice, outside in our beautifully landscaped courtyard with seating for 45 people.<br />

"We really like Equinox. The food quality is on a par with many of the famous restaurants in Portland. We started with the calamari, which was cooked perfectly, the correct mouthfeel. There was only one server/bartender for a fairly large crowd, yet she did a great job. We had the beet salad and the caesar, both were very good and large. For entrees, we had the fish special (salmon) and the braised beef. They were really well made and delicious. For dessert, we shared the creme brulee and the granita. The highlight was the housemade molasses cookie!"
