We had Beau...and Beau had us. That was the start of a great moment of feeling welcomed and "at home" while we traveled Portland. Great help on the menu and freedom to ask questions rewarded us with a highlight of our trip. Food did not...More

I too ate at 23 Hoyt during Portland Dining Month. We took my elderly parents for my mother's birthday. The staff were wonderful- when I mentioned it was my mother's 89th birthday they brought us a little pre-meal treat. Throughout the meal they were gracious;...More

We were at 23Hoyt as part of Portland Dining Month, so we were expecting a full three-course meal for $29 each. We were critiqued by our server as being "aggressive eaters." We had walked 8-10 blocks after 7 p.m. to get there. The portions were...More

Thank you for the review, although I am surprised to hear that it went so badly for you. Dining Month is a crazy time for us, and obviously mistakes were made. I apologize and can promise that it will be better for you next time....More

Unfortunately my experience with the food here was not very good. I will say the cheese platter and wine was good but you can't go wrong with that. Salad had wilted leaves, lamb chops came out and we're very difficult to cut into. Semi tough...More

This restaurant has gone through a few incarnations. And we never happened to visit 23 Hoyt until now. Great service and great food for the money.

23Hoyt is a favorite neighborhood restaurant and bar for people attracted to busy 23rd Avenue and the surrounding West Hills. Chef Lorenzo Capoccia's menu is both exciting and comforting. This can be your place for any special occasion or for any ole day of the week. We serve dinner every night with a fabulous happy hour and brunch on Saturday and Sunday featuring $2 mimosas!
