Raven & Rose Ratings and Reviews

Food excellent. Wine is absurdly expensive for a restaurant of this type. Wines in the $25 to $35 range would encourage more diners (like me) to order wine. As it was, I saw only one wine bottle being consumed by patrons.

Good food, staff friendly and worked with both customers and each other well. Food excellent had some options not often seen on standard menus. We had reservations for 2 ready we walked in the door. I had neglected to mention our infant, who would not fit at the table they had ready, but within 5 minutes they had a for us that comfortably fit all 3 of us.

I would not recommend this restaurant for anything because, although the food is good and the service is also, it is way over-priced. When the least expensive wine on the list is $62 - and the house wine is $12 a glass - that 's over the top. The ambience doesn't warrant such prices. It's like eating in a noisy factory.

We loved the food, the service and the fact that they asked us if we had a time frame for our meal (we did). It is difficult to find a place to eat in downtown Portland, if you need to be at an event between 6-7, when most places don't open for dinner until 5. The food was very creative and well presented. Kudos to the kitchen!

Ruth and team did a great job with recommendation-- rabbit sandwich and corned beef sandwich. The butterscotch pudding is marvelous.
an expensive experience
The pub with the British selections was closed so we ate in the dining room. A happy hour menu was not offered although happy hour choices were being served. Food was good but expensive......$16 for an average Caesar salad. If interested in fish and chips, cottage pie make sure pub is open.
Not bad, not great, but I will go back.
Very nice folks work here. The atmosphere is good. The bar is cool. It is a bit pricy though. Menu is meat heavy and otherwise somewhat limited. The single fish entree was $45!
We were not impressed with The Raven & Rose.
While the restaurant is an established fixture in downtown Portland, and it looks nice, our food was uninspired. Some of it was undercooked, while other items were over cooked. In general, the value just wasn't there.

Good night. Wonderful dinner . I shared on Face Book suggesting to friends .Excellent cuisine and the place is much more welcoming. I recommend.This fillet to wine and Gods sauce.
Living downtown, this is our favorite.
People who work there do all they can to make your dining experience the best possible. Everyone excels at their particular job: combined with wonderful food, extra ordinary drinks and seating for group conversations or romantic quiet spots R & R has it all. One of the best Portland dining experience you will encounter.
Loved the cocktail called El Diablo Fratello. tequila, lime, cassis ginger ale...very yum. Disappointed by the potato rolls..starchy tasting....Pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon was tasty but not very easy to cut... Dessert, Lovage Panacotta was scrumptious

great food and service, convenient for before the show dinner out
Great for a business dinner
We have eaten here several times. When I was asked to come up with a restaurant for a business dinner I quickly remembered that the booths along the front of the building are very quiet. We stared upstairs in the Rookery Bar and moved down when the entire party arrived. The food is always creative and delicious. Drinks are excellent. Service is friendly and professional. We love this place.
Not many vegetarian options
I made the reservation thru' Open table and explicitly requested vegetarian options. This was not acknowledged by the server. The tables were too close to hold a good conversation. Most of the dining establishments have better veg options compared to this. The veg sandwich was ver good though.

Excellent changes to the menu since we were last in. The new head chef has created some masterful dishes. We enjoyed every course as well as the beer selections that pair nicely with them. The perfect neighborhood restaurant!
Pricing Becoming Restrictive
I loved R&R since they opened up. However, the last handful of times, it's becoming increasingly expensive, I find. For two of us, no alcohol, the bill was over $100. Although the food is good, I'm not quite sure it's $100 good. Maybe for a very, very special occasion. But for a casual dinner out, I would highly suggest finding another place to stretch your dollar.
I enjoyed meeting my friends for brunch at your location, however was unimpressed by the hostess and the food. Although it was tasty, I imagined it would be over the top delicious because of the price and reputation of Raven and Rose. My friends and I came for brunch on Sunday, and one of us was running late. Our hostess seemed annoyed that our fourth person had not yet arrived to complete our party of four reservation, although we were already seated. Also, she took away my friend's outside coffee even though my friend clearly stated she was almost done drinking it. Although this was a restaurant rule, we were unaware of this policy and because my friend had made it to the table with the coffee, I think it would have been appropriate for the hostess to let that one slide since it was her mistake to let my friend sit with her coffee in the first place. Our waiter, however, was amazing, and was doing a stand up job, even though he appeared to be the only waiter in the restaurant. The only reason I didn't put more stars for service was because his five star service was taken down by the hostess' one star service, resulting in a combined three stars overall for the restaurant. I most likely would not recommend this location to a friend.
We hadn't been here in a while so we tried it before the show. Although the food was tasty, it was horribly over-priced. One of the dishes was the halibut. Very small portion for $42. I had the duck which consisted of two slices of breast for over $30. They also charged a $30 corkage fee. Even after telling the waiter we had a show at 7:30, we didn't get the bill until 7:25. We will not return.

As a treat before seeing an operetta at PSU, my daughter and I stopped here for dinner. We loved the English themed dinner choices. I had the duck and daughter had the steak. Both were delicious and prepared beautifully. Our server found out we had a show to get to so everything we ordered came out quickly. We even had time for dessert.

Dined with friends and again the service was good and the food was very NW. Each course was tasty and well presented. As usual, we will be back.
Surprising decor and food items
We were delightfully surprised at the novel menu, excellent sea food, and an excellent wine list.
Always a Treat!
We have been here several times and it has never disappointed. Our servers and host were especially attentive to my 95 year old mother and that was very pleasing. Food and drinks were great and the chocolate bread pudding was to die for! YUM! Thank you for a lovely evening.
Service was prompt and attentive; manager stopped by several times to see food was to our liking and suggest cocktails - not because our server was neglecting us, but because they clearly follow a model of care and concern for customers. Atmosphere was classy, but also bustling and homey. The interior is sleek but there is some rustic flair. Mostly 2 tops and a few 4 tops. Food was outstanding. We ordered: 2 excellent craft beers, they had 2 different varieties on nitro. 2 excellent cocktails, a bourbon sour with hibiscus and an old fashioned. Chicken liver pate: this was served with a soft boiled egg, and toasted bread, big slices, and they happily brought more slices so we could finish the entire pot of pate. Rabbit chowder: an excellent hearty soup without being overly rich. Flavorful, good portion for my bf and I to split (we wanted to try everything) Bombay style duck: the duck was cooked so well it tasted like a dry aged steak, accompanying braised cabbage and tropical flavored rice was perfect. Rabbit 2 ways: this was excellent, and came with roasted veggies that were a perfect texture. Food was all 5 star quality with beautiful presentation. I loved the dinnerware so much I peeked at the bottom of my plate to see who makes it - high quality stuff from England. Would recommend for a date night or any foodies.

Very little selection on the menu. The service could have been better. Not a bad experience, but not worth the price.
Really good food
The actual food quality is excellent, and the service is generally very attentive. It is a tad pricey but pretty consistent with the area and I'm sure more could be done to dampen down the noise levels but all-in-all, I really like this restaurant!
Bonkers for Brunch!
We met friends here for brunch, we were seated next to the fire oven and it was marvelous! The food, service, and ambience was top notch! We will be back!
Upstairs and Downstairs dining.
This particular location was selected due to proximity to the Portland Art Museum, the fact that it was March 17, and the desire to dine close by. The dining room on the first floor doesn't open until 5:00, however the bar upstairs opens earlier, which is where we headed prior to dining downstairs. Being St. Patrick's Day, I figured the background music upstairs would be Irish. Unfortunately, it was not, and unfortunately it was blaring. It as difficult to hear others talk. One could order modestly-priced food off the menu upstairs, but we decided just to drink some dark beer and eat downstairs. The sooner the better, noise-wise. At 5 p.m., we went downstairs, where it was quiet. We ordered the corned beef, and were thrilled with the tasty results. In fact, this was the best corned beef I have ever eaten. We split the meal, as the main course was expensive (over $30), and neither of us wanted a huge portion. We also split the dessert, a Myer Lemon Brûlée, which was equally delicious. I was disappointed in the noise upstairs. But I would definitely go back because the food was delicious. In fact, we plan to go back on our anniversary later on in the year.
Food was great - service not so
I would recommend Raven & Rose, as the food was excellent. I had venison and it was perfectly cooked. The service as not as good as it should be considering the price. With reservations 1 wk in advance, we were seated at a table next to, right next to the open kitchen with a big ol' garbage can at the entrance. It did have a lid fortunately. When I complained, the hostess told me, essentially, too bad, that's the table I selected for you. I asked about another table and she said, that one was reserved. It was a real "Sorry Honey" moment.
I keep trying
Tried to give them another shot after reading about a new chef. Was excited to see welsh rarebit on the online menu. Psych - real menu wasn't the same as the online menu. If you're one of those foodies who likes beef and pork everything, this is the place for you. If you like porkless and beefless options (besides salad or vegan fare), there isn't a lot to choose from. We had a vegan option that was tasty, but once again I was disappointed..

Excellent pork, venison & tuna. Great vibe, bar upstairs very cool. Will be back!
great food, cool venue
We ate here before a theater performance. The food was excellent. I had the Ladd's caesar, which was much better than the typical caesar, and the venison, which was perfectly cooked, medium rare. All four of our dishes were beautifully done. I would definitely return.
We will definitely be back.
We loved almost everything about our dinner at Raven & Rose. The only thing I have a complaint about is the noise level. The open dining room gets quite noisy when full. But the food was spectacular as was the service. Very attentive wait staff who were aware that we had a show to catch and made sure we were done in time. After the show we went back to the Rookery Bar upstairs for a night cap. The old building adds interest to the evening. Raven & Rose is a "must"

bait and switch. They did not honor the Portland dining out month. Instead of spending $58, we spent $120. Rip-off. Owner never returned phone calls. Manager offered 1 free dessert if we came back and spent another $120. Seriously?????
Excellent food and very helpful staff.
Excellent food and very helpful staff.
Food outstanding, service good.
Food, atmosphere, online reservation option... all great. The only negative part of the meal was when the server said "Can I bring you some bread before your meal" - I shouldn't have assumed the bread was free, but $8 for a few pieces of bread is absurd - especially since the suggestion was that it came complimentary. But again, my fault for not clarifying.
Pork chop was great!
