Too bad it's closing in 3 weeks. The owners who also own a food distribution sold the restaurant and will getting out. No word on what it's going to be. Food was good and good location. Too bad you won't get a chance to enjoy

We have been going to Alexis since it opened. Like 30 years. Wow, I'm getting old. The food is still very good and the prices are excellent for what you get in downtown PDX. The dining room hasn't changed at all and the service is still just right. the thing that has changed is Portland's attitude towands the homeless. Thais... More

We ordered a variety of food and actually had a carry-out. But the interior of this restaurant is delightful and if we had not been concerned about parking the car, I would have loved to have dined here. The large bar and ample dining spaces with warm wood finishes are welcoming and restful. This is not apparent from the plain... More

The food was ok, but not worth the price. The neighborhood is bad and definitely not worth the stop. I love Greek and Mediterranean food. I was riding the MAX for the first time by myself and got hungry. So I took a chance. Next time, I'll keep riding.

We have been searching for a good Greek restaurant and this is the closest to our favorite in Richmond, BC ( Felicos). Be warned, this is in a sketchy part of town and there are dozens of homeless people you will have to pass by- I would not have felt comfortable if I was not with my husband. It did... More

We went to dinner here after a long and somewhat grueling all-day agenda of doctor appointments, and found a peaceful restaurant with some pretty good food! We shared orders of saganaki (flaming cheese), gyros with lamb, spanakopita, and the Greek salad. The owner came over and we talked for a bit when he asked us how our food was. We... More

We've been frequenting the Alexis for over 30 years and have always loved it. You're made to feel like a special guest from the moment you step in the door. The food is exceptional! I love the dolmades entree with lemon sauce as well as the kota rigonati (oregano chicken). The egg & lemon soup is memorable! My spouse loves... More
