Impressed with the appetizers but the Caesar salad and entrees were just ok. Better than average but not next level (Ava Gene's, A Cena, Nicoletta's Table, Burrasca's etc.) Italian cuisine.

This is one of those places in Portland that you would only tell good friends about. The Portland dining month food was excellent and the service was exceptional. Urban Portland neighborhood where the parking is challenging but it's worth the walk. Busy, lively and fun.

Took advantage of Portland Dining Month to visit 3 Doors Down again. It, once again met our every expectation. Food was excellent, including a few wine specials. Server was attentive and funny, despite having a heavy load. We'll be back.

We've been dining here since shortly after it opened, for something like 25 years, and have never been disappointed. It's been our special occasion place to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, job changes and retirements. It's also been our happy hour place and it's great to...More

We had a wonderful meal here recently, with good friends. The menu was diverse and interesting. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the warm and friendly ambience of the restaurant. Service was very good also. We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely go back.
