"Tasty cocktails and a good sake menu. Edamame tender with the right amount of salt. We love the big eyed tuna poke and the smoked chicken spring rolls to start. This time we tried the harami kushiyaki with the black sesame sauce - fantastic! We haven't had anything yet we didn't really care for. And the view is wonderful, even better in the spring-summer-fall when you can sit outside in the west deck."

"This was our second time at Departure, and it was as incredible as the first time. The views from the top of the Meier & Frank building are spectacular, the food all has such rich flavor. I can't believe I would ever say this, but the brussel sprouts are the highlight of the menu!"

"Your amazing seperate vegan menu drew me to the place, the stunning view and ambience were the vegan gravy on top!! Our server made the experience all the more better. I wish I remembered her name, but she was super fun and sweet and just the right amount of attentive. (She even gave us a tip on her amazing lip color and where to get it!!) It was a beautiful city experience and culinary delight! I will definelty be back and will tell all my vegan friends that this is THE sexy Vegan Portland must-Do!!!"

"We have talked about this amazing meal for days-- remembering one excellence after another. The food offered surprise after surprise, spectacularly nuanced and brilliantly presented, and the service team's attentiveness was perfectly balanced. We had a memorably wonderful time-- capped off by a sighting of the chef, who we came to admire for his food and character in his season of Top Chef. Departure hosted the perfect celebratory feast for us, and we'd recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable, fun experience."

"We went on a Saturday night on a warm spring day, and the place was booming. This is apparently where Portlanders go on a nice day. It was very loud and very crowded. We had a reservation and had only a short wait for our table. The outdoor dining is first come first serve and we were told it would be a 90 minute wait to eat outside. There was a very loud group of 8 right next to us and they kind of distracted from our experience, but we were able to talk and hear each other in spite of that. The menu items delivered mixed results. The best items by far were the chicken and beef from the charcoal grill. The pork dumplings were also great - more pork than dumpling. But the avocado sushi roll was ordinary and mostly rice, and the fried rice was not very exciting as well. We were told to order 4-6 items for 2 people. We ordered 6 and would have been fine with 4. The items come out randomly, there is no rhyme or reason so the avocado roll was served last. We were told that it is a very different and quieter experience on week nights. If I ever get back this way, I'd try for a weeknight instead of a weekend."

"We were on our honeymoon, and I made reservations far in advance in hopes of getting a romantic table. We were at a small corner table that was basically connected to the table beside us. We rushed through our meal so that we could go relax outside on the patio.
We enjoyed our food, but the experience overall was not what I hoped."

"Departure exudes a hip vibe, but with food this good no vibe is needed. Lots of great dishes for sharing. Loved the poke."

"Best dinner in Portland! Roasted carrots in cashew sauce was a standout; the whole was far greater than the sum of its parts. I rarely eat meat, but the crispy peak belly was irresistible and incredible!"

"Great place to have a drink on the outdoor patio that overlooks Pioneer Courthouse Square. Inside the ultra modern styled dining area it's loud, but service is great and the small plate menu was varied and everything was incredibly delicious and cooked to perfection."
