We found this place last year while on vacation and had one of the best meals we've ever had. Unfortunately this time around it can be summed up as "ok". Service was excellent as was the bone marrow appetizer. However, the fois gras was just weird. Overpowered by the parsnip on parsnip on parsnip. The duck main course was excellent,... More

What a surprise! We overheard this place mentioned in the lobby of our hotel. It's a good thing we arrived early because without reservations we would not have gotten in. By the time we left the place was packed and there was a line outside. The food was reasonably price, nicely presented, tasty and hot. Wait staff was good without... More

It's almost like we can't leave Portland without a meal here any more! We stayed two nights at The Nines recently and went here for dinner one of the nights. I could not get in with opentable at such a late notice so I called and they said it would be about a 30 minute wait for walk-ins. We waited... More

Visiting Portland and found reviews about Little Bird Bistro on TripAdvisor. Glad we made a reservation for a Saturday night. We were seated upstairs ( the best place to be). Reasonably priced wines by the glass and delicious French bread. We each had a cup of the soup of the day - split pea - delicious. My husband had the... More

Went with two close business colleagues for dinner. Very cool spot with two levels, very casual. Ordered the steak tartare and fried chicken coq au vin. Both were flavorful with terrific presentation. Service was excellent and well informed. Good wine list - highly recommend it

My husband and I stopped in for brunch during our trip, this was a great decision. The food choices were classic with a nice unique touch and there were plenty of them. The staff was very friendly and the service great and the wait was not too long. This is definitely a place I'd recommend if you are craving a... More

Was as I pretty much expected from reading reviews on Little Bird, it is a French style bistro with all of the trimmings. I had the roast pork shoulder and my wife had Fried Chicken “Coq au Vin... both entrees were excellent. As an appetizer shared a Foie Gras Torchon, and anything, as far as I am concerned, with foie... More

Friends were visiting from out of state and I saw all the great reviews of Little Bird as a lunchplace, so we took this opportunity to finally check the place out. Verdict: scrumptious. Not cheap but superb. I had their French version of a ham sandwich, my wife had the salad with lamb, friends had the daily special (butternut squash... More

So glad we selected Little Bird Bistro for one of our two dinner spots while visiting Portland. It had a Paris bistro lively feel and menu reminiscent of the Left Bank. The seared duck breast was exceptional as was the hanger steak. The wait staff are a real team, each attentive to every table. I was glad to be able... More
