The entire staff was attentive, hospitable and friendly. Food was fun and delicious.
This was my first time at the restaurant and I went with a friend for breakfast. We both had the dungeness crab omelette and I had a biscuit and a mimosa. The food looked incredibly fresh, the helpings were generous and everything was delicious. We will definitely be back.
Very good diner. Food is very good. Waitstaff seemed a bit put off but it was dreary outside.
Omlettes dry. Hash browns overdone. Apple Belgian waffles so sugared could not eat the apples. Very disappointed.
I have been to bread and ink several times over the last few years and it is always a place I want to return to.
The service was excellent but the food was mediocre at best.
Probably wouldn’t go back but if your looking for very typical Portland food and atmosphere bread and ink is it.
Great Bloody Mary's and the Bagel and Lox plate had a great presentation. I would dine here again.
Delicious! Hadn’t been here in years and it’s better than ever !
Seafood stew was fantastic! The wait person was extremely knowledgeable about all the ingredients in the food. My friend is on a medically-prescibed diet and the wait person made the ordering for her so easy for her. It was a delightful meal.
Breakfast was fun and lively. Overall the food is pretty good but the place is well worn - it felt grungy in a not-so-soulful diner kind of way. Also, it felt the breakfast was not as cared for as in the past. The french toast was hard on the bottom as if it was sitting around for a while. The bacon was way overcooked and dried out and had to be sent back - the waiter thanked me for drawing attention to the bad bacon, which is weird because the waiter or the kitchen should be attentive to that. Net, I will be trying many other brunch places before I return there.
Food was quite plain/bland
We had not been to Bread and Ink for several years as we no longer live in the area. It was nice to see that it is still a great restaurant with good service and food. We will be back.
Tasty food - fig salad, sea food stew, burgers and salad, Friendly helpful server. Hummus plate could have used a tad more hummus. Lovely evening - felt proud to share my town with out of town family.
As good now as 28 yes ago when a starving artist and could hardly afford.
Tasty food at great prices. Great place to eat & visit with friends.
Dinner was fantastic, being able to enjoy a wonderful meal while watching the world go by outside was very relaxing.
We returned just a week after trying this restaurant for the first time, again for an early dinner. Once again the food was excellent (fantastic sauce on the salmon and the cardamom in the rice was a stroke of brilliance) and the place wasn't crowded. While the ambiance is that of a neighborhood cafe, there is excellent entertainment to be had watching the people passing by on the street - very Portlandia! This time, a movie was being filmed on the sidewalk right outside the window.
We had an early dinner here so the place was not crowded, the noise level was low, and service was excellent. Both our dishes were outstanding: steak diavolo and burridda, a Ligurian seafood stew comprising white fish, shrimp, clams, mussels and enormous scallops in a tomato and fennel broth. The portions were generous and reasonably priced. We definitely want to return.
We were seated promptly, the staff was friendly (and patient), the food was very good. The price was in line with other establishments in the area.
