Small place, cozy atmosphere. We made a reservation online about a month prior and got a table on the earlier side. Food is great. Best chicken I’ve ever had. We also tried beef cheeks, which was very hearty. Highly recommend. Great wine list.

I have celiac disease and the chef was amazing. He was able to tailor any of the dishes to my needs when asked. The quail was amazing! Out of all my travels this place was in my top 10.

One cannot help but be surprised the first time you visit, as the space is definitely small. It becomes quite obvious why it can be difficult to often get a table and why many people walk in and hope to have a shot at eating...More

One of the best meals I've ever enjoyed. Service is excellent. Food is outstanding. Le Pigeon is a "don't miss it" when visiting Portland.

I had expectations for what I heard about this restaurant. It is very loud inside the restaurant, you can barely hear yourself. The seating condition is not the best... Food was very disappointed to me, I wouldn’t call it a French restaurant at all... and...More

My husband and I went for dinner after having participated in a few wine tastings in the Willamette Valley. As a result, our pallets were a little shot so we came only for food and passed on drinking (although we were tempted by the wine...More

Surprised at the really small size of this bistro-style eatery, something that I never encountered while living in France. So many working in close quarters to make this restaurant function seemed skin to pulling rabbits out of a hat. The ambiance was terrible with music...More

I thought the 7 course meal was just right (male, 5'11"). You'll have a better chance of filling yourself up (unless you just want to eat bread). I'm not sure about the corkage fee.
