We hosted a rehearsal dinner here on the second floor, an ideal setting for a big family-style dinner, spacious and airy but still private and quiet enough for conversation. The food, from starters to main course to dessert, exhibited care and finesse. The servers were skilled, attentive, and cheerful—perfect for this kind of occasion. The menu revolved around two main... More

Hosted a special event here last week and was completely pleased. The upstairs room was beautiful, quiet, and graced by big windows that let us see the sky and feel the breeze. The servers were just as nice as could be, everything was timed beautifully, the food was both tasty and attractively plated, and it was everything we hoped for.... More

On the outskirts of the Pearl district in downtown Portland, this is a great place to have a casual, but very creative meal. There is a full bar (that carries only American made spirits) and serves really great cocktails. The staff is great, very attentive and knows about the food, how it's prepared, etc. We had a great time and... More

We were here for a firm Holiday Party. The appetizers were delicious, especially the JoJos. The fish was perfectly cooked. The salad was refreshing and flavorful. The piece d' resistance was the braised beef. A nice evening!

We ordered the tasting menu, which wasn't a tasting menu at all. It was a collection of appetizers, mains and desserts from the menu but chosen by kitchen and served to share. The portions also looked exactly the same. It seems better to just choose the menu items you would like. Wine pairing was a great intro to Oregon wines.... More

The atmosphere here is pleasant and you don`t need to dress up. I will say most of the food was tasty and presented nicely. I was surprised to find only four entree choices...2 beef, 1 halibut & 1 ham. Highlights were the beef cheeks, oysters, and gnocchi. The hanger steak was a little rare for me. I found the portions...

Went here twice on a recent trip to Portland, initially because it was right around the corner from where I was staying. After the first time, though, I would happily have travelled across town to do it again. The food (gnocchi and hanger steak, in my case) is unbelievably tasty. I admit that the portions were smaller than I expected,... More

Don't bother looking at the menu. Do yourself and your company a favor, and order the tasting menu with wine pairings. Thank me later by adding another review. :) The Bent Brick manages to blend modern techniques, such as some molecular gastronomy, into traditional dishes. Their menu changes with season to match the freshest local ingredients available, ensuring a unique... More

Our family went here to celebrate my niece graduation. The ambiance is good and perfect for a small group of people. The staff were very nice and friendly. It's exactly what you expect from the Porlandians. The serving are all in small sizes but big in flavors. A bit pricy for the small plates but I must admit it was... More

Had some snacks from the happy hour menu - the keilbasa and salad were excellent and cheap. Loved the Rocotta Doughnuts too, I'll be back for sure!
