This was the second time that I have dined at Uptown Billiard for their tasting menu and once again, the chef didn't disappoint. This month's offering (November) was root vegetables and my friends and I enjoyed each offering. Although not as big as a full serving would be, the five plates leave you feeling very satisfied and not overly full.... More

Chef Peter Kuhlman hit it out of the park on the tasters menu. Each of the five courses was a delightful taste treat. The focus food for the evening was peaches-so each course included some form of peach: Serrano ham wrapped peach slices, peach purée, peachy-cheddar biscuit, peach soffrito and peach galette. The menu was creative. The service impeccable. the... More

I've been to Uptown Billiards Club and tried their tasting menu. One time the theme was Cherries and it was all very creatively plated and solid as far as flavors. The second time I went it was a Melon theme will all the dishes being pretty good as well except for the dessert which was a blue cheese cheesecake that... More

This is a great place for billiards, with an upscale ambiance for billiards and a fine restaurant and bar. The only thing I would like better would be to see is more vegetarian options on the menu. The bartenders and servers are always friendly and give excellent service. It is conveniently located on NW 23rd Avenue, one of the best... More

The first I went was over 2 years ago during Feb. when they had the 5 course pairing which the theme was chocolate. I was absolutely sold on this place. My husband and I had basically a reservation every 2-3 weekend for when the new theme came out. We will continue to come not just for the food but also... More

This visit was for our company holiday party. When the location was announced, the idea of going to a "pool hall" did not appeal to me. As it turned out this place is magnificent. Great ambiance. Great food. Pool tables, ping pong tables, dart boards. It didn't take long for the party to really start rocking. It was probably the... More

This is a very unassuming place (with an exterior entrance that gives you no sense of what the place is like as you climb a long set of stairs). Yes, it really is a pool hall but a stylish one... HOWEVER, the main dining area is in a rear area that is cordoned off (with large curtains), and is very... More

Uptown is one of the top two bars I have ever visited, and the other one on the list is not in Portland. Hallelujah for bar food that doesn't make you regret eating it; thank the chef for his amazing five-course meals. I'm a wine fan, and their wine list is impressive. The setting takes you back to a different... More

This is the classiest place I have ever played pool in. And the bar is a classic vintage style all dark wood. They have great craft beers and cocktails. Bar menu is superb and happy hour is even better.

We found this place to be just OK. To start with, the stairs to enter the place are drab and dirty - kind of a funky musty smell. When you enter the establishment you enter the bar area and we were greeted by a nice young lady who showed us to an empty dining room. We did show up on... More
