Higgins has been a favorite of ours for several years and this visit was no exception. We were seated within minutes of our arrival and our waiter explained all the evening's specials. We both chose the petrale sole. It has always been a favorite but the way it was prepared this evening was exceptional. It was rolled and then sautéed in a blood orange butter sauce with basmati rice and broccoli with watercress. It ranks as one of the best meals I have had.

I can't say enough nice things about this restaurant. We went in late December for my husband's birthday while visiting Portland, where we used to live. The staff was phenomenal. The food was fantastic. The atmosphere was cozy on a cold, rainy night. The charcuterie was incredible. We enjoyed it so much, we came back two nights later for more. Looking forward to another visit when back in town someday.

My husband and I had a terrific Friday dinner at Higgins while visiting Portland. We used Uber but locals might find parking downtown a challenge. Higgins offered a varied menu, with a number of daily specials. Our Server was terrific, suggesting items and being attentive without hovering. We enjoyed our dinner and would certainly return.

Nostalgic bar with a great Happy Hour right in downtown. We walk her from our condo and always enjoy the staff as they are so accommodating. The main dining room is a classic setting with great food.
A must go to if you have never been to Portland.
