Raven & Rose Ratings and Reviews

The brunch here is of-the-hook currently. I had been before and loved it but have to suspect they have upped their game. Got a table for two with no stress on a Sunday in Portland. The hostess was kind, inviting, and seemed really efficient. I ordered a couple of plates and waited with a lovely coffee in hand. My two year old dining companion received nothing but smiles from the staff and other patrons. Probably because they were really enjoying the food! I got the pea toast witch came with a salad and perfectly fried egg. Exactly what I wanted beautiful, satisfying, comfort food without the grease. I also ordered the oatmeal. Steel cut oats can easily be overcooked and gummy. Not the case here: they were perfectly prepared and maintained the nutty flavor and texture of the oats. I think I will always order these here on principle. LOL! Great coffee and superb ambiance means I'll be back with more family and friends.

We had a reservation right as the theater crowd was leaving. They wanted to seat us in a larger booth that wasn't ready yet so we happily waited upstairs in the very cool bar. When we came down to be seated, the restaurant had emptied out so we had our choice of tables. In hindsight, we should have asked for a regular table in the main dining room, since our booth was right in front of the elevator and between two exit doors so it was busy and chilly (and we were the only diners in that section).
The food was good, however my husbands filet was very rare, and he had ordered medium rare. We decided it was fine though and didn't bother sending it back. My venison was quite small and a little salty, but so tender it melted in my mouth. The mushrooms were gritty though, and didn't add to the dish. As a former manager of several high end restaurants I have put together many wine lists. The wine list here is small and very pricey. I appreciate good wine and we usually spend $75-$100 on a bottle for a special occasion (which this was), but if this had just been a pre-theater dinner or an average night out, I would have been hard pressed to find a bottle on the list.
Overall it was a nice night out. The staff here is great, very upbeat and nice. If you have a reservation, you should get there early and take advantage of the upstairs bar.

We selected Raven and Rose a pre-theatre site as it is close to live venues.
We were fascinated by the history of the building and were amazed by the video of this old building literally moved three blocks a few years ago by large trucks and trailers.
Check out video on their website and check out the great restaurant!

Venison was superb though minimal in size, at 5 slices and accompany plate mates consisted of about 4 thumbnail size meringues and potato slices, on par with a single, small potato.
Other guests opted for the beef filet, again perfectly cooked and presented with a beaut of a skyscraper, Yorkie Pudd but in all 3 plates we lacked, yes what Mum always wanted you to eat more of... those veggies! She obviously wasn't as impactful on this Chef. Not only scant on your entrees but amiss on the menu even as a Side to share..."please sir, can I have more!"
Thankfully we all took in a salad but the menu could definitely benefit from some Sides to share. Makes it easier to order dessert as we were all still kinda unfull, which could be exactly the point perhaps?!
Desserts were all yum, peach cobbler and melon sorbet, but it was the almond and fig cake that had the other two spoons resting at my plate ;) !!
Cocktails were a known and main draw, and pleased well, except on price, pushing $12/14 is Portland steep, headed the way rent of rent hikes!
Upstairs bar has a great vibe with a live band on Weds night we visited, but prices again for both food and cocktails make it a special occasion stop vs a go to bar for entertainment and eats.

Raven and Rose never fails to impressive. I have eaten here many times and the food has always been superb. We always order 3 courses and have yet to find anything we disliked. Food comes out quite quickly for such amazing dishes. Staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. I will be back over and over

We sat at the Chef's table and got to see a little bit of what was going on in the kitchen. Great overall experience and the food was phenomenal. We had the venison and the gnocchi and both were outstanding! The venison tasted like the most tender filet I've ever had, cooked and seasoned to perfection!

The heirloom tomato and egg salad and the beet and bean salad were amazing. We enjoyed our steak and salmon entrees, but the salads and the desserts (butterscotch pudding and blackberry crisp) were the highlights of an excellent meal. An issue with one entree less well done than preferred, was handled with grace by the server and returned quickly by the kitchen, exactly as requested.

Service would best be described as awkward. Our server was trying to be friendly and relatable, but he just came off as strange. I couldn't hear him half the time. His timing coming to the table was poor. We asked for mustard and it came 30 minutes later. Someone kept trying to close the blinds behind me and rather than say, excuse me, they would sneak up behind me. Lastly the food was good, but small and very expensive.
I've been to happy hour upstairs and the drinks are quite good, but again more expensive than they should be. I don't think I need to return for the dining experience.

AMAZING. Had the pasta special (pesto gnocchi with rabbit and mushrooms) and ate every bite. The presentation and flavors were amazing. Our waiter recommended the butterscotch pudding which is one of my new favorite desserts. Delicious end to a wonderful meal! We will definitely be returning to Raven & Rose!

I would have enjoyed my lunch more if I could have ordered the item which was on the menu but they did not have. The meal I had was acceptable, but not really what I wanted. If they are going to post their menu on their web site and have items on the printed menu, then they should be available to order.

Nice food, good though not transcendent. Portions vary in size from meager to just right. Corned beef hash came with an over salted salad which to me was an odd pairing. Super nice and attentive staff and pretty good drinks.

this place is way over priced for dinner. You have to pay for bread, the house wine was $12 and the pour must have 4 oz., entrees in the $30s. There are so many great restaurants in Portland that this pricing is not worth it. The food is good, but not at this price. Salad had an anchovy filet in it, not visible, so one bite was so salty as opposed to spread throughout the salad. Slightly over dressed salad as well. Cocktail was quite good. Building outside, beautiful, upstairs bar very nice, downstairs decor ok.
Sorry but not a place i would go for the price level. I mean Imperial, Higgins, to name a few downtown that i would rather eat at than here.

The food is always delicious, the craft cocktails are superb and the service is attentive and timely. I highly recommend Raven & Rose to anyone who appreciates delicious, uniquely prepared food, a lovely atmosphere and delicious cocktails. Take some friends and share your food because it will all be amazing!!

What a wonderfully surprising find. I selected it simply based on the name sounding fun and it turned out not only a step in history but excellent food as well. The food is freshly picked and the service is perfect.

We have been going to Raven & Rose for special occasions for couple of years now. It was already very good, and recently, they brought in a new chef that has upped them even further. From a fantastic menu, to great wait staff, this is absolutely our most favorite "special occasion restaurant". [There is also a bar upstairs, which we have been told is very vibrant, but we didn't pop in there and cant comment on it.]

We were looking for a quirky place to take my sister for brunch during her business stopover, and Raven & Rose was a great choice. We had a 10:30 a.m. reservation on Sunday, and it was neither too annoyingly busy nor too worryingly empty. Ambiance is English pub-y: dark woodwork and heavy wooden tables, mixed with modern touches and high ceilings. Server was excellent: knowledgeable, funny, and friendly without being overbearing. Food was fantastic: started about with the donuts (4 to an order; should have gotten more), bread pudding (x2, a special of the day) and coffee (yum), then rounded things out with pretty much one of each of the breakfast items on the menu: Traditional English Breakfast for the preteen & teen boys, Eggs Benedict for sister, Traditional Irish Breakfast for hubby, and Peas on Toast (had to try it!) for me. All exceptional. I would definitely recommend and will certainly be back. Very cool place.
