My partner had a great meal of eggs and ham. He liked the ice tea. I didn't like the ice tea, tasted liked powdered. Our waiter disappeared for too long. I ordered an omelette off the menu requesting a change in cheese - didn't get it. He did reduce the price when I remarked about the mistake, wish he'd caught... More

Don't let the modest exterior change your mind. Step inside, eat outside in the back and get ready to feast on some of the best cuisine! If need considerations for allergies, the chef is always willing to work with you. Staff is accommodating and the food and atmosphere superb!

Wild Abandon is an excellent restaurant. The dishes are consistently delicious, the staff is warm and welcoming, and I love the space. In the summer, the patio is one of the nicest in Portland. And the indoor space is warm and comforting in the winter. It feels like home when I walk in the door; I know I will walk... More

You will notice the odd lights including many oil rain lamps left over from the 70's. Food ranged from average to very good. Service was a little slow but the food came hot and plentiful. We would go back again.

What a big surprise awaits you out back behind the restaurant! It's a hidden garden patio that is just the sweetest get-away spot for a cozy dinner for two or a reunion with old friends. The food is always good and varied and the drinks very well made!

Small space with crazy lighting fixtures. Has a funky smell when you first walk in. Too much patouli oil or something. Interesting menu. You can get Mac & Cheese for breakfast. That's my kind of food.

I am rating this restaurant as Excellent because we don't have a step between Very Good and Excellent. I will rate the food as excellent, but the interior of the restaurant as good to very good. Very good because it has a very nice patio setting in the summer behind the interior area. Good for the interior though as it... More

This dining experience was an excellent one, the type that makes you swear off corporate restaurants forever. With a casual, inviting staff in a little Portland building, warm lighting, and unique decor, the place immediately draws you to a seat. It's a humble little spot, kitchen in view from the bar and tight corners, but not in an unpleasant manner.... More

Ate here recently and ordered the Mac and Cheese. The dish reeked of cheap wine and tasted of it as well. It was almost as though a glass of cooking sherry had been poured on this prior to serving. As a non drinker, I was repulsed. I can't imagine having ordered this for a child. Really dreadful.
