We had Beau...and Beau had us. That was the start of a great moment of feeling welcomed and "at home" while we traveled Portland. Great help on the menu and freedom to ask questions rewarded us with a highlight of our trip. Food did not disappoint, and how nice to not get let down at any point from the olives,... More

I too ate at 23 Hoyt during Portland Dining Month. We took my elderly parents for my mother's birthday. The staff were wonderful- when I mentioned it was my mother's 89th birthday they brought us a little pre-meal treat. Throughout the meal they were gracious; they worked to meet our dietary needs, helped my father find the restroom, and even... More

We were at 23Hoyt as part of Portland Dining Month, so we were expecting a full three-course meal for $29 each. We were critiqued by our server as being "aggressive eaters." We had walked 8-10 blocks after 7 p.m. to get there. The portions were extremely small. The first course consisted of two bites. We had to buy dessert to... More

Thank you for the review, although I am surprised to hear that it went so badly for you. Dining Month is a crazy time for us, and obviously mistakes were made. I apologize and can promise that it will be better for you next time. Until then... Best, Bruce Carey, owner More

We were there for dinner during the happy hour on a Saturday. Loved the beautiful decoration and cozy setting. I ordered the duck entrant and it was cooked just right. Tasted wonderful! Will come back again.

Unfortunately my experience with the food here was not very good. I will say the cheese platter and wine was good but you can't go wrong with that. Salad had wilted leaves, lamb chops came out and we're very difficult to cut into. Semi tough cut. Potatoes on plate were hard and not cooked throughout. The vegetable side was very... More

This restaurant has gone through a few incarnations. And we never happened to visit 23 Hoyt until now. Great service and great food for the money.

Ate here last weekend. Four of us had different dishes two went back because they're cold. Service was just so so certainly not worth the money, should have gone to Jo Bar

We had dinner the night before Valentines Day to avoid the crowds. The ambiance is cozy with beautiful tiny lights and candles. Both our entrees were delicious, as was the Caesar salad. For dessert the donut holes with caramel sauce was a surprise treat! Josh, our waiter, was terrific and intelligent and well informed. We will be back!

23Hoyt is a favorite neighborhood restaurant and bar for people attracted to busy 23rd Avenue and the surrounding West Hills. Chef Lorenzo Capoccia's menu is both exciting and comforting. This can be your place for any special occasion or for any ole day of the week. We serve dinner every night with a fabulous happy hour and brunch on Saturday and Sunday featuring $2 mimosas!
