For the price of the menu I was not very impressed. Some good hummus and other spread options, but paired with dry, stale bread pieces. The arugula salad was okay, not excellent. I had a cod entree that was quite good - melt in your...More

Dined at Spread for the first time during "Restaurant Week". My friend and I ordered off the Restaurant Week menu, which was less expensive, but almost exactly the same as the regular menu. I started with the Arugula salad, which was ordinary. My friend had...More

Great Location, historic funky building and interesting decor. We dined there on 2 occasions; one for appetizers and drinks in the bar, the other for dinner. On both occasions the service was dreadfully inattentive, spotty and without consideration. When our waiter inquired of my Duck...More

We showed up at 6:00 on a Thursday night. Seated right away at a cozy table for two - kinda close to others, so not much privacy, unless you like listening to the neighbors. The atmosphere was nice, tho. We waited 20 minutes for water...More

This restaurant is relatively new to the Portland restaurant scene (~1+yr). We had not heard much about the restaurant but the location has always the sight of other great restaurants. Last minute plans on New Year's Eve had us making our reservation only one week...More

A nice place, and some good food, but in general, this place is not handling the details the way a restaurant with its aspirations (and prices) should. Our difficulties started early. There was a light burned out above our table, and one end of the...More

Spread was on our list for some time and finally made it there for dinner. It was eerily quiet with few patrons, but overall a nice atmosphere. Our server was great. Very attentive and informative. Unfortunately the food was not on par. Their wine list...More
