Raven & Rose Ratings and Reviews
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.
I keep telling myself that I really need to try other things on their menu but every time I go to R&R I end up with the full Irish breakfast. It is too good. Maybe some day I'll eat something else because I'm sure the other things are excellent but that breakfast steals my palate every time.
This was my fifth visit over the last three years and I was disappointed. Food quality in terms of preparation and flavor were average at best. In terms of dollar value, it seems that they used to have a better food experience for the price. Maybe there has been management or kitchen turnover in the last year. But it was disappointing. We had been coming here on special occasions, but likely will only come back for the Rookery bar.
My friend and I grabbed dinner here last week prior to a Literary Arts event at the Schnitzer. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience. Service was great. And the food was delicious. Our server was even cognizant of time as we had to walk to the venue. My one issue, however, was the cost!! We each ordered a salad, one item (flatbread) from the starter menu and she ordered the vegetarian entree. We did have 2 glasses of wine each as well. No dessert. Our bill came to $120! Seriously?!?! Where are we -- New York City?!!? That's just crazy to me. In hindsight we should have ordered a bottle to possibly offset the per glass price, but really? When we heard that the scallop entree (3 scallops on a bed of eggplant) was going to be $42, we dropped our jaws. I love a good meal and really love the atmosphere at this place. But the prices will make me avoid the regular dining menu and opt for Happy Hour whenever possible!
We had an early Valentine's Day celebration and had seen the lovely Raven & Rose before. We made a reservation which was easy online. We were greeted with a bubbly hostess and it felt very special but relaxed. Vivian was our server and she did a great job making us feel right at home. I had the corn beef hash with mustard sauce which was incredible and my husband had the full Irish breakfast. The coffee was some of the best we've had. It was all very special and fun. Thank you, R&R, for a unique and special time.
My wife and I took my sister-in-law and her boyfriend here for her birthday since she had always been attracted to the building but unfortunately the experience was abysmal to say the least. The noise level was so loud that we had to shout to hear each other, the water was lukewarm and the food had us rushing to the restroom within an hour of leaving. The waitress seemed to be adequate enough for most of the evening however when it was time for my sister-in-law's boyfriend and I to pay she very blatantly looked over our shoulders as we assigned her tip which made us all uncomfortable. Overall it was a poor experience, the food was bland and we will never go to this restaurant again.
Ridiculously overpriced. I have been eating there since they opened, but have not visited the main dining room for several years. The menu offers starter for entree prices: a pasta dish for $18 was "two bites" according to the server. The meat prices were higher than most other high end restaurants in the downtown and Pearl, the pork chop offered act the price of an aged New York Steak in other restaurants. Only the green salad was a reasonable price. I will never come here again--simply a poor value with food that is good but nothing special.
Packed on Saturday Night, Good food, Nice building, Downtown Prices.
I really enjoyed the food, the flatbread, carpaccio and fisherman's board were very very good. My date liked the flatbread but doesn't eat raw beef or seafood, was less happy with the fillet of beef, would have preferred plainer sides and more sauce, is less of a foodie. I would probably have sent the Yorkshire pudding back on the basis that if i had dried one out that much it would have been binned, but it seemed to be enjoyed as a sort of cracker. Beer and wine selection was good for us, was good, forgot to tell us we couldn't switch the sides until we asked after it had been delivered, but no biggie, they were all running around like mad.
It was packed and open table got us in without a wait when we decided to go 45 minutes out. We sat in the first booth to the right of the door where three booths sit in the hallway which leads to the upstairs bar and impressive fireplace, the rest of the dining room was behind a curtain to the left with the bar along their wall level with our booth. The door really wasn't staying closed in the wind, which did lead to some chilly gusts, but didn't put me off my meal. My date enjoyed being on the hallway and looking out onto Broadway, good people watching opportunities.
We wandered upstairs between courses and might just go there next time and listen to some music, there's a beautiful fireplace up there. Was also a table at the top of the stairs around the corner from the bar which reminded me of the European pubs where they seem to have just heaved in tables anywhere they could. It's quite like an English gastro pub, but priced for a downtown major city, which is where it is. Was well worth it for us, definitely more gastro than pub, and downstairs is not the sort of pub I would go to with a bunch of mates, but great for our date.
