Located downtown providing a relatively small setting for delightful food. We started with chicken liver pate that was pleasing to both eye & palate. I had the soup-du-jour ...a cream garlic soup with a few pieces of smoked salmon floating on top - a great starter. Entrees were smoked duck (marvelous); lightly fried fish (topped with fresh dill) - a great selection; and mushroom risotto that was good. A dozen tiny macaroons provided a super finish (the last six appearing in uploaded photo). Michael provided excellent service and we're ready to return.

NOTE: street (metered) parking was available

Fun little delight in downtown Portland where you might expect to find something more corporate. The food is interesting and the wait staff always helpful.

I have had the pleasure of eating at this charming spot for the past few a years when visiting Portland for business.

Let’s start with the fact that I am picky. Good service mediocre food- no. Good food mediocre service- no.

This charming little spot has AMAZING food and GREAT service - rare and so appreciated.

French+ Northwest= to die for.

Go, just go.

Our table ordered the Coq Au Vin, Salmon, and Hanger Steak. The fish was perfect, the Coq Au Vin was delicious - the steak was good enough. The wines are decent and fairly priced. The atmosphere very much like a European Bistro with a sophisticated clientelle. This is definitely fine dining presented in understated French/Shabby-Chic. I do not mean that in a derogatory way; this is the real deal.
