Raven & Rose Ratings and Reviews
We ate at Raven and Rose for the first time before going to the symohony and it was fabulous! Great, unique ambiance. Service was awesome! Ruth (Assistant GM) was very attentive to us and our experience. Daniel (server) have great recommendations. It was fun to watch the chefs in action, too. The food was fantastic as was the Chardonnay flight. It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely return!
We had drinks, mussels (excellent), steak (8 oz, medium rare; excellent) and desert (cake & ice cream; excellent). It was busy before the theater. Reception person disappeared for a while and was seating people outside. He had too much on his plate and the restaurant didn't put it's best foot forward. Waiter was prompted and the dinner went well except for the slow delivery of the 2nd glass of wine. I think this was due to the fact that the restaurant was full. It was our 2nd meal there and the food has been excellent on both occasions. I think the decor is OK but not great;it was busy and full but the activity did not interfere with conversation. We will go back.
We ate dinner there before going to a Broadway show and they made sure we were done in time. The menu was not the usual stuff but was very creative. The tomato bisque was very good as was the salad that I got. The filet was very tender and the halibut that my wife got was excellent. We kept trading plates so we could taste what the other had gotten. The meal was a little expensive, but this was a night on the town for us, so was expected. Nice to have it close to our hotel, the Modera, and also Keller Auditorium. Thanks for a great night!
After an unfortunate experience during Portland Dining Month, we were encouraged to return. This time the atmosphere was wonderful and the food (Halibut Wellington) was excellent. It was one of the best fish entree I have enjoyed. The chardoney flight was perfectly matched to the halibut and the 3 wines were outstanding. The service was polite, efficient, met our needs--all without being hovering or rushed. Overall, it was a wonderful birthday dinner. We will definitely return. Thank you
I stumbled upon Raven & Rose while trying to find somewhere different to take my mom for Mother's Day. What an experience we had. Parking was relatively easy, which was my biggest concern. When we arrive we were immediately swept upstairs to the bar, which is the former hayloft. While up there everyone in my party was offered a glass of champagne to celebrate Mothers. We were very impressed by the history of the building. The detail in the building to try and hold the history is amazing. Once we were led to our table we were excited to see what the menu had to offer for this special occasion. We immediately ordered Irish Coffee and Full Bloody Irish as soon as we sat down. Both were AMAZING! Then we had the amazing donuts, they reminded me of the Danish cookies that come in the tin at Christmas time. 4 people in our group ordered eggs Benedict. One was crab Benedict and it was amazing. One ordered the French Toast! Melt in your mouth amazing. There was also an order of Glazed Ham at our table. We loved that there was no rush, the noise level was decent, and the coffeeand water were always filled. Our only disappointment was there was no butterscotch pudding available during our visit. I guess we will have to visit again.
Went to Raven and Rose for Mother's Day brunch, had been there only one time before for brunch. Both experiences were fabulous. Both traditional and new dishes to try. Great service and middle of the road pricing for brunch in Portland. Not too noisy so a good place to bring girlfriends or for a special occasion. Would love to try this place for happy hour!
We came here after a performance of Pinkalicious on a Saturday night (awesome performance BTW). On first impression, the historic building is beautiful and inviting. The ambience is easy-going but on the fancy side of casual. We started off with chicken liver pate which was slightly bland but had good texture. My main course was the venison which was cooked a perfect medium rare. It had a spice rub which was a little bit like clove or allspice. Very delicate and good contrast to the subtle gamey-ness to the meat. My wife ordered the lamb which was also a perfectly cooked medium rare (mine was better! 😀). Both dishes were enjoyable but safe. The kids (age 6) did not care for the Mac and cheese from the kids menu...I thought it was deliciously sharp and simple. Dessert of course was fabulous and the high point of the night. We split three dishes between the four of us and we barely got through the finish line! The butterscotch pudding is so worth mentioning because a) it was decadent, and b) it paired nicely with their tawny port. A nice exclamation point at the end of a great day! All in all, very enjoyable experience. I'd probably take my wife there again on a date night without the kids!
Ps. I should mention they took great pains to make sure we were not in a rush to catch a show. Very considerate,
I've dined at Raven & Rose with my husband, with friends and with business associates. The food has consistently been wonderful, with great presentation and great service. This time was no exception. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list and made great recommendations. When confirming my reservation they asked if we had theater or event ticket that evening. I said yes. When we were seated our server confirmed that we had theater tickets and promised that we would make our curtain time. He made sure that our meal was paced accordingly, but without rushing us. I love the ambiance of the bar upstairs. No matter what you order, save room for the butterscotch pudding. It's amazing!
We took out of town family and some local friends for a nice dinner. We were 8 people in total, including a 12 year old boy. The restaurant was very accommodating as we changed the number of people from 6 to 8. No problem!
As we arrived, the table was set and ready early. We started with some signature cocktails. I ordered the Manhattan (up) and it was delicious. We ordered some appetizers for the table. The lamb tartar was excellent.
With the 8 of us, we ordered a plethora of dishes for dinner and did some "ping pong" tasting. I really enjoyed my lamb and some of my son's filet. The fish was outstanding and the pasta dish was very nice as well. The waiter, Daniel, was very easy to catch as needed and took excellent care of our crew. He provided honest opinions and was very helpful throughout the night.
It was nice that Daniel's first question was if we had any time constraints (like theater tickets). I thought that was a nice touch, although we were in no hurry! Some delicious red wine was suggested and it was a perfect complement to the lamb.
Everyone thanked me for the choice of restaurant and I was pleased that the night was a total success. The noise level was medium, but conversations were possible even for those sitting a few seats away. Great time!!!!
The general manager was wonderful...gave us a tour of the fabulous upstairs bar with an architectural tour. No kidding...the beans on toast was the best breakfast I've had in 47 years on this planet. Beautiful presentation and beyond delicious. Everyone was so friendly. Can't wait to go back the next time we are in Portland...it will always be a must do when in town. Looking forests to experiencing the bar and happy hour!
Lovely atmosphere in charming historic building. Downstairs space is gorgeous, with intimate bar, wood burning oven, open kitchen, sophisticated feel. Tempting menu with lots of sharing options. Fabulous music listening room (The Rookery) upstairs - fireplace, vaulted ceiling, large bar. LGBT friendly; diverse and friendly people upstairs in the Rookery. Community atmosphere in the Rookery. Lamb and lentil dish very good, but accompanying sausage contained a couple of hairs. The waitress, when told this, said that hairs in her food don't really bother her, so she tried to normalize our experience, which is never an effective customer service approach. She did have the manager come speak to us, not per our request, which seemed appropriate, and he was super nice. He said he would take something off our bill, but that didn't actually happen. maybe someone did not get the message; I'd give him the benefit of the doubt, as he was super pleasant and sorry! We had to hurry off to a show, so we did not pursue it. Unpleasant glitch for such a great place. Would give them another try though, but I might sit at the bar next time, and start with a drink.
Food was overall very good. I had the Eggs Benedict and I'm very picky about a true hollandaise and this more than met my expectations. There was a pickled green on it that was good but overpowered the delicate flavor of the egg and sauce but it was tasty, just perhaps too much for this dish so I only ate half the greens. Also, the egg yolk was more solid than I would have expected and missed the runny yolk I expect with a Benedict. My mom and sister both had a beautiful side salad with their entrees and neither ate it because they said the dressing was too overpowering with vinegar but they raved about the Shepherds Pie, Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup and I can attest they were all delicious. Thank you.
I was excited to order the Traditional Irish Breakfast. I have been to Ireland and you cannot get good pudding and fudge in the states. I asked the waitress before ordering if it was authentic she said "yes". While the food was good I did not find it to be authentic or as good as the real thing. I would not order it again. I also only received 2 baby mushroom caps. I also ordered tea and ran out of hot water. No one came back to check on us or offer us more water and they were not overly busy.
Pros...beautiful restaurant, nice downtown location. Cons....my pork chop was dry, one of my dining partners was the same. The cesar salad was weird; it had different types of greens in it. The service was ok, nothing special. Had to ask 3 times to fill my tea glass. I would expect top notch service and food for the high prices here. Entree prices are $30 to $40 and up, but didn't seem worth it.
We were going to a 2pm concert at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall and decided to try Raven and Rose for brunch beforehand, lured by the promise of house-made donut muffins. The food (when we eventually got it) was excellent. The service, however, was most definitely not. Our food was very slow (not in the we're-giving-you-time-to-chat way, but in the the-server-totally forgot-about-us way - the server didn't check in at all, and we couldn't even get water refills). Overall it was a frustrating experience, because we loved the food and the atmosphere, but honestly would be reluctant to go back because of the service.
Another delicious meal at R&R. Sat at the chefs counter and enjoyed watching the magic happen in the kitchen. Sous Chef Paul was super friendly and offered enthusiastic responses to our questions about the items he was making.
This restaurant is top notch and their whole staff, kitchen to wait staff and hostesses are phenomenal
Had the chefs table great place to sit and be entertained while sorting out business will be back for more meeting requesting that table
Beautifully run kitchen your chef does a great job not just with the food but keeping the staff in the back upbeat
See you soon
St. Patricks day was our occasion to go to the raven and rose.
We had delicious cocktails and the cheese plate was a nice appetizer but the beet salad was excellent!!
Our main courses of pork chop with pollenta and brussel sprouts and the lamb were both very average faire..
the building is an interesting spot and recently remodeled...
I understand there is a fun bar upstairs however we did not investigate.
For the price I give it 3/5...
By far, my favorite Portland restaurant! The histories building with all of its period trimmings makes for luscious ambience. The food is gorgeous; both rich and wholesome with colorful fresh veggies. And the rookery upstairs is always an experience with its fireplace, high wood beams and handcrafted cocktails. Every staff member I have encountered here has been really well picked out and trained. They are always friendly and accommodating. The only beef I have with this place is that I can't order upstairs food from downstairs and vice versa.
My wife and I had dinner at Raven and Rose before a concert at the Shnitz. The service was phenomenal. They checked in with us about whether we were going to an event and kept the timing in mind as we ordered and ate. The cocktails were perfect and the food was excellent.
We had a fun and very good meal. Building is historic. Salads were excellent - particularly the beet and pear. Vegetarian main course was just OK, but the venison haunch was excellent. Actual menu more limited that that shown on the net. Surprisingly limited seafood offerings - out of raw oysters and the market seafood was scallops from Maine. The upstairs lounge - the Rookery - is fun. Good drinks and desserts. Live music some evenings (but not last Saturday unfortunately). Interesting people watching.
This was our first time at Raven & Rose. Unfortunately the experience was not great. Some of the staff (not all) were very unfriendly. The hostess was great but our server was cold as ice. Maybe I'm old fashioned but I expect a friendly smile when spending money and tipping. I tipped 20% but it wasn't diserved. I guess the hip places aren't for us. The building is amazing and the history is interesting. Good food, cozy atmosphere and warm staff is what we are looking for.
Pre-concert dinner for my husband and myself. Had a delcious roasted beet salad to start, and then I had the 6 oz. beef medallion with Yorkshire pudding. My steak was a little tough, unfortunately. My husband had the venison which we both agreed was wonderful. Didn't have time for dessert, but the options looked very nice.
