Loved the Ceviche, was a bit hesitant to try it but very pleased. Our well informed waiter convinced us to try it for the first time. Great balance of spicy and citrus and the seafood was certainly not frozen. Mains were a bit small but well composed. Loved the take on Peruvian, seems quite strongly bistro influenced.
This place is great, except when one of the owners brings his spray-bottle-toting brats down there. Serious, that shit gets old REAL fucking fast.
nice that it is all ages- sounds good inside- could be more visible outside as a music venue- kind of sketch but a good place- they have ear plugs which is nice---
Shitty attitude of dude who gave me my tattoo. AT FIRST... the he softened up a little. They use sterile supplies and equipment. -hopefuly- I suppose it's a place worth returning to. It's just hard to shake off the attitude in the air. There's nothing worse than cockyness.
just ok. better than bonita for their prices, but still too high, and not that good. think javiers on lombard is way better.
The asiago cheese dip got me wet. They only serve it fall/winter, but it keeps me coming in. The drink prices are terrible unless your a beer swiller (They make thier own on site and it is pretty good). Some of the bar tenders are snotty so I stick to the dining room but the food and non-bar wait staff always make up for it. Happy hour has awesome selections but even the expensive stuff is worth it. They try really hard to be fancy, being right on the max line makes that hard but also can provide great entertainment while dining. They also have pool tables and big screens for you sporties.
Love it. Just kinda getting overrun with hipsters, like everything. Sad.
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in town (read- mid-1990's). It still has the atmosphere I like, but the food is just not up to par.
I can tell you por que' no. Downsides: though based on one experience, the tacos are technically done in the traditional mexican style, yet super-watery with sauce and overdone in cilantro. The tamales with eggs were nice and I liked the touch of it served on a banana leaf, but wasn't worth the money in my opinion. One of the margaritas we ordered was relatively stiff, making up for the other that was juice. We spent $38 on two lunches, two margaritas, and chips. Upsides: (1) their homemade chips were delicious, (2) we took a gamble on reviews that seating was difficult, and though crowded, their turnover was pretty quick (3) they have walls full of latin chotchkes and bright colors to help the atmosphere.
Pretty average pizza and the price is not bad. It might not be the best pizza in town it's definitely not a bad deal.
I just moved here from a small city in Tennessee. This was the first place I went to sample the dim fertile waters in a much bigger scene. I wore all black just to be safe. Black is always the safest color in Portland, I've since discovered. After walking through a termite's intestine decorated by gay loggers, I found the downstairs music venue. It was one of those "indeterminate" type indie bands with some guy on bass playing the brown noise a lot, a guy in a stocking cap on keyboards, and a shrill, ironically nerdy vocalist. This one had a lady who swore into the mic at intervals and played tambourine. Weaving through the people in front of the stage (not a wild bunch) was like getting trapped in a rabbi's walk-in closet. It was musty; lots of black cloth. And damn near all of them wore chunky black spectacles. C'mon. I got ostracized for my entire childhood because of my poor vision and NOW it's so cool to be a nerdy intellectual?!! Oy, vey! God damn all the unearned intellectualism in this burg!
It's kinda like shopping at Goodwill if Goodwill sold food. The products are relatively cheap and often far past their freshness date - definitely check the expiration dates. They have a small selection of fresh food and vegetables that is of surprisingly good quality most of the time though.
Fairly middle of the road stuff here - reasonably priced dependable pizza, friendly staff, and great karaoke, but the beer is ALWAYS flat. Good enough for a quick neighborhood bite.
Order off the specials board. Menu regulars never impressed me. I have tried. They seem to put more attention to the specials,but truth said, they haven't impressed me lately, so I have been giving them a little 'time out'. I realize there has been a death of an owner, and a little flux,but that was months ago, and they should be up to speed by now. The last visit, Sept 2009 was the second disappointment in a row. I hope they get it together
The place is convenient and the food is pretty good, however i did order a vegetarian dish one time that had chicken in it. Needless to say my girlfriend was upset and my preference for this place dropped a star.
Actually the Delta is about as unauthenic as Portland can come. I like to laugh at all the uber-Portlanders thinking they are at yet another trendy one-of-a-kind place. While I love the drinks and love to get a gut bomb going...it's a chain restaurant people!!!
Best tuna melt in town, but sort of a weird atmosphere http://www.brookegeery.com/lunchonhawthorn…
nothing i can say thats wrong, but its just uncomfortable.. like an art gallery. you walk in and its set up for everyone there to notice you- like a large hallway runway. its kind of a cold atmosphere and each footstep echos, just not a place i can feel good in for hours on end. staff are really nice, (at least 4 are ex albina press baristas) coffees good of course, but i just need to feel a little less observed. perfect place if thats your thing.
The service was excellent (although we were pretty much the only ones there.)
I wasn't too pleased with my benny, my friend loved the veggie hash. The bloody mary bar is rediculously enticing. They even have huge crisp bacon to throw in it. I was impressed with their drink list, too.
I'll be back for a second/third opinion... :)
the brownies are good.
Not into the dry as bones muffins. Especially the bland cornmeal blueberry, which kind of gave me the feeling that I was eating sawdust. Nothing is all too creative on the menu either, no reason to really go there except that I like the yellow color scheme and the big windows.
All in all I'm more partial to Dovetail and Sweetpea.
