Nice place in city center not only for having lunch or dinner, but also for having a delicious breakfast. Highly recommended

Had several large business meals here (8 people) and the food was good. Service done very well but overall it was a little underwhelming. When expecting the atmosphere and the quality of food to be a knock your socks off experience and it really turned out to be just ok. Not bad. But not a restaurant I need to visit frequently. Again not bad but for the price I want to be wowed.

We enjoyed a large business dinner - 18 persons.
The restaurant handled the evening really well, great wine list, and served platters of top quality wonderfully cooked and served steaks.
Top quality. Will visit again.

I ended up going twice during Portland Dining Month because the menu seemed so good I wanted to try all options. The food was delicious overall. Also they are very accommodating around things like last minute reservations and adding or removing a person. It does get noisy. Most of us had the fried appetizer, which was delicious. The one person who had the salad revaed about it. The person who had the split pea and ham soup said it was good but not that different from good ones they'd had elsewhere. First night we all had the seafood dish and it was wonderful - healthy and decadent at the same time, delicious, original. The second time I had the Ragout pasta which was lovely as well. Desserts were also wonderful although a bit unexpected. The tort - we expected a light dessert on the healthier side; it was richer than expected, but delicious. The bananas foster type dessert didn't look like the usual, more like a pastry with a few bananas on the side, but delicious. The first night we ordered onion rings to share - they are smaller, lighter than the usual bar food type. We all ended up getting doggy bags for some of the rest of the meal. So it ended up being an even better deal than dining month. Great wine recommendations for a decent price. One thing to think about: if you're there with people you really want to spend time with and chat, let the wait staff know; otherwise, the food comes at a faster pace than you might expect. And I'm sure that wonderful staff would accommodate!

I was a solo walk-in on a weeknight. I declined a table in the bar which has a bar menu as well as the restaurant menu. I opted for a window table and enjoyed the people watching as this was my first trip to Portland. My server, Lexi, was just excellent. Helpful, friendly and attentive without hovering. I had the Dungeness crab cocktail and salmon. Both were excellent. The menu is a mix of steakhouse and seafood. The prices are city fine dining prices as you would expect.
