This is a cute and classy
establishment. The food is excellent and service is good. The decor is beautiful, vintage mirrors, chandeliers, lots of natural light. Brunch here is a must for anyone coming to/living in Portland.
Taking my business elsewhere.
Recently went here for dinner and won't be returning. Food is mediocre at best. The primary (and only) seasoning appears to be salt, salt and more salt. Service was decent, but the food is terrible. An insult to mother's everywhere.
Be Nice or Leave.
There is a sign on the wall, "Be Nice or Leave." The staff should sincerely take this to heart. Really bad service from start to finish. I had called ahead of time to ask about a table and was told it was ok to come in at 5 pm. They neglected to say that we would need to sit in the bar. Well, that was ok, but not what we wanted. We had quite a few different people serving our table. All were rude. I don't say this lightly.
However, once the food got to our table, it was very good. I had chicken and dumplings which was delicious. My dinner-mate The portions are very large so the remaining was lunch the next day. The desserts are decent as well.
However, we won't be back. The servers, as well as the manager (or whoever that was) need a class in customer service. Badly.
I went to read reviews this morning to see what people were giving great raves about for breakfast before going. I could not believe the bad ones. We have been there many times and it is slower with a big crowd of 12, but ALWAYS great food! This morning I had the Wild Salmon hash, mmm good!! (My wife usually gets it and I take some bites.)
My favorite is the Biscuit Breakfast with country sausage gravy. It's not a heavy flour tasting gravy. Try it, its really good.
