We had dinner here on Fri. night. Yes, it is as good as everyone here has said it would be. The place is swank, classy and delivers great food and service. A truly remarkable Portland experience.
We were seated in the front to wait for the rest of our party. Just enjoyed sitting there and watching everything and looking at the dinner menu. The ambiance is gorgeous, reminded me of the Dry Creek Kitchen in Healdsburg, CA.
We were all seated at a wonderful table in the middle of the action. After studying the menu, I decided on the shaved fennel and orange salad which was wonderful. All the flavors of this blended together very well, a very unique salad.
We all shared the potato gnocchi with black truffles, which was the hit of the dinner, to me. These are a must for anyone dining here. Just melted in your mouth with plenty for five people to share a couple each.
My entree was the wild salmon which was very good. The bacon-wrapped sea scallops also sounded very good which I will try next time. Other entree items were the steak, chicken, entree and two spaghetti entress which everyone said was very good.
For desserts, we all had to try something. I chose the profiteroles, which were stuffed with black cherry ice cream and a bittersweet chocolate sauce, excellent.
Other dessets were the creme brulee, chocolate mousse cakes. All excellent. The bill with tax and tip for all of this was just under $200.
This was definitely a splurge, and a celebration dinner, we all knew that my son would be propsing to his girlfriend the next night. What a perfect place to celebrate and a very memorable experience.
Oh, she said yes!! On a carriage ride through Portland, the horse pulled over, he got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life. We're all very thrilled and what a wonderful city to be in to celebrate this happy event! Bon appetit! ***kim***
