Portland >Blue Monk On Belmont
Great Place to eat!. While your checking out the Hawthorne/ Belmont scene, drop in for some great drinks and pretty amazing Italian food. Great blues music, too!
Party in your mouth. The food (and drinks) are so good, it's like a party in your mouth!!!! Definitely recommend this restaurant!
One of Portland's Best.. My wife and I discovered this place by accident one night, looking for a spot to grab a beer before a movie. We have since gone back many times and taken a lot of friends from out of town here. When we found it, they weren't technically open yet but their door was unlocked so they invited us in for a beer until their kitchen opened and we were happy to oblige them. Their beer list is expansive and the staff is friendly, funny and knowledgeable. And the food is amazing. Huge portions and delicious. The blue lighting and darkened corners make for a great date spot.
Love the atmosphere!.
I stumbled upon this place with my boyfriend and my cousen. What a nice surpise! We were looking for a place to get a lil tipsy before we went to the wonderland.The atmosphere was great and the bartenders were pleasant/ helpful even on a Saterday night. We had a miscomunication on a drink and they fixed the mishap without a rude comment or extra charge. I would go here again for sure!
OH and the no smoking thing was awesome
Fat plates of pasta in the cool Belmont neighborhood..
A young and hip crowd fills this contemporary Italian restaurant, which features a slick bar, rustic tables and a partially open kitchen. Simple Italian dishes come in huge portions and include entrees such as homemade meatballs, nightly ravioli specials and chicken Parmesan. Visitors descend darkened stairs painted with eerie apparitions of Portland jazz greats to join a local crowd playing darts and pool.
Lies sweet little lies. Vegan Cheese not Vegan...Don;t trust the lasagna. I think the server was doing her best but stumbling on the lack of available menu items due to under inventory...I would not recommend eating here and the drinks are overpriced there are plenty of places nearby to get a :REAL" drink and no real cheese...sorry but if i order Vegan I want Vegan ..especially if you advertise it...Why overextend yoursleves so much on the menu? The Marinara was also a meat sauce...sheesh we Vegan/ Vegetarians know the diff...
#1) it is and always has been Vegan down to the noodle for the past 5 years!
#2) we have never ever had our Red Sauce contain any meat.
#3) you should stop reviewing restaurants because your clueless and this is a case when the customer is WRONG!
Great location. I dig this place since it is very close to my house and the staff are always excellent! The food (for the most part) is well done but not great and a little too spendy for the neighborhood. That said if they had more eclectic music in the basement the place would be a must stop...unfortunately they turned it into a game-room.
okay food great service. We went for music but must have been too early or it was not playing. Had antipasto and a ceaser salad both were good and not hard to m,ess up. Husband had the chicken parm not a big fan but was okay. Would go back to check out the jazz.
Sure bet. Great customer service, great neighborhood bar. Love the beer and food menu. I love that when I come here they rush out my food (I'm visibly pregnant). I love that it's non-smoking during dinner. Everyone is really friendly and thoughtful. The atmosphere is great too.
Dont come for the food.....
I was not aware that Belmont had turned into a runway....... because we were served luke warm airplane food. The service was excellent - then wine list was above average - but the food was terrible. The chicken parm was hard as a rock - and served with cold pasta and frozen veggis. Salt and pepper would have helped - but they dont even offer THAT on the table!
Go for the music - NOT the food.
