Dining at Cusp is a treat for your senses. Enjoy coastal Mediterranean fare with an emphasis on fresh seafood like grilled salmon crusted in Moroccan spices or albacore roasted to perfection. Rustic flatbreads from our pizza oven and savory sides compliment our fresh pastas and entrées. <br /><br><br><br />Try our ocean-fresh ceviche or raw bar while sipping a cocktail made with our housemade infused spirits and fresh juices. Savor Chef Donald’s flavorful dishes, chat with friends, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pacific from our 11th floor dining room. <br /><br><br /><br>Not just for special occasions (but perfect for that, too), Cusp is your neighborhood spot. Stylish and relaxed, Cusp is the place to chill out with your friends while enjoying craft cocktails and creative cuisine—the stellar view is on the house. Daily Happy Hour from 4-7.

"The cocktails are truly top notch and the food is quite good. They best thing is the service and the view of the Pacific. It really is a great experience.
We started with the Caesar and Pear salads, which were great. For entrees, we had the salmon and mussels dishes, which were very good. For dessert, we had some ice cream."

"The drinks, food & wine were all excellent! A few of us had the kale salad, which is remarkable. For entrees, we had the steak, halibut and meatballs dishes. Each of them were excellent and the service was very good. For dessert, we split the creme brulee, which was also tasty. As a special treat, they had a jazz orchestra to play, which was a talented group of people."

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.

"We come here every year on Spring Break and really enjoy the experience. We had two orders of the spaghetti meatballs and a pizza, which were all delicious. We finished with an affrogato and enjoyed that as well."

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.

"It really would be perfect for any lunch. We both had the bean soup and the pork shoulder special with ice cream for dessert. That said, these descriptions are much to simple for what was delivered. The dishes are perfectly prepared with great flavors. It's an amazing value!"

"We both started with salads, which were sized perfectly and were dressed very well. I had the Osso Buco and my spouse had the shrimp pasta. The Osso Buco was cooked perfectly and fell off the bone. The shrimp was in a red sauce that had a perfect consistency and had an excellent flavor. The cocktails were also very well made."

Fine dining with a casual twist. Classic Northern Italian cuisine and fresh Northwest delicacies. A night out on the town, or an intimate arrangement. Giorgio's is the best of both worlds - where classic and comfort meet, and have fallen in love.

"We had a delicious meal. We started with the rice crusted calamari and the orichette. Both were very good, though the calamari was truly excellent. I really liked the arugula with the calamari! For entrees, we had the mushroom pasta and the chicken saltimboca. This may be the single best chicken dish that I have ever had . . . truly remarkable. They also made very good cocktails and have an exceptional wine list."

"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."

"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."
