First for Historic building buffs this building is an absolute marvel, a unique restoration of a one of a kind building. (Just go for the architecture). Second they have an amazing selection of exclusive seasonal craft beers. Thirdly the menu is filled with innovative and delicious oddities and marvels Lastly, and most amazingly, our server was a true devotee of... More

The server was excellent, but the menu was very limited (except for the beer, wine and spirits), the time in the kitchen was very long. The presentation of the food was very good, but the food itself was pretty average despite the attempt to be very Portland in the ingredients. To top it off, my wife had to rush to... More

Zeus is one of our favorite restaurants in Portland. This time it was for breakfast. They really knock it out of the Park and no lines as most of the other great restaurants have for breakfast. Try it and I know you will like it.

A Reuben made with corned LAMB?Sauerkraut made from pear? And there were many other intriguing and even counter-intuitive ingredient combinations on the menu. Artichoke heart wood-fired pizza was superb! Service was excellent. Prices were reasonable. Atmosphere and decor was Jazz but the soundtrack was Reggae. It all worked. Unique.

We have taken family here several times for late lunch. The truffle fries are amazing; the chickpea fries are pretty good too. The menu has something to offer everyone in mixed vegetarian/carnivore crowds (buffalo burgers, spicy falafel burgers, mediterranean salad, turkey tacos with pickled avocado). The kids enjoy their wood fired pizzas. They have good seasonal ciders. And great service-... More

I ate here twice for breakfast while I was staying in the Crystal Hotel. I had ham, potatoes, and eggs both times. It was fast and delicious both times.

We came here for my husband's birthday and absolutely loved it! The food came out in a timely manner and was delicious! We got the pollo a la el vez, beet salad, grilled Columbia salmon, and the lacquered pork belly. For dessert we got the wood fired fruit cobbler and dark chocolate pave. I definitely recommend all these dishes! The... More
