I fell in love with this place. The decor welcomes you in and makes you feel cozy. I ordered the vegetarian dish to try something different and it was one of the best things I ate in Portland. Great place for a romantic dinner.

We struggled a bit with what to order, but opted for salads and mussels, and we were very pleased with our meal. Also, the bread was divine!

I sat at the bar for happy hour and had a half a dozen oysters, hanger steak with goat cheese and fries, and a cocktail. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent.

I hosted a group upstairs for a corporate lunch. As we know, heat rises and it became very hot up there. They brought in fans for us. I thought they handled it well.
