Foursquare Tips

  • One of the best restaurants in a city of incredible restaurants. Ask for whatever Chef Larry Matthews recommends. You won't be sorry
  • Great restaurant!
  • Great, quiet place for dinner.
  • It's been a Portland fine-dining institution for a quarter century and Larry Matthews has been a part of it for most of those years. Great food and an award-winning wine list. [Eater 18 Member]
  • Best crab cake I've ever had!

  • Wonderful find in Portland. The duck two ways is incredible. Pair it with the Volnay Pinot and you'll be on cloud nine. The salmon preparation is equally as intricate. Oh and Get The Crab Cake!
  • The service is outstanding, but let's not forget the food! Agnolotti comes highly recommended, wine list is great with very reasonable prices.
  • You cannot go wrong with anything you order, seriously. And, if you like fun martinis, order an espresso martini. Hands down the best we've ever had.
  • Ask Adrian to make you a special cocktail! Wow, what a mixologist!
  • Recommended by local chef Erik Desjarlais: "Chef owner Larry Matthews Jr. has a simple, elegant approach to not reinventing the wheel. His Duck Two Ways is a lesson in flavor composition."
  • Great restaurant. Have the crabcake! Devine!!!
  • Duck and service
