Raven & Rose Ratings and Reviews

The building (inside & out) is beautiful. The front desk was very friendly and understanding that we were late due to an accident on I-5.
Our waitress was friendly but not overly happy that we asked to split the check.
The food quality was very good, but the prices were so high that it was hard to order anything.
The items on the menu are very eclectic. (Not a place for people who like simple foods or for children).
Overall our group of 6 was pleased with what we ordered- chicken and flatbread and cheese board; but not pleased with the cost.
The bread bowl was also very good- but we didn't realize it was an extra charge until we said yes, we wanted it.
It's located in a convenient spot if you're going to the theater; just be prepared to spend a lot.

last year's tday fixed price menu was much better. there was sausage on the stuffing and the appetizer was much better. however, the turkey was moist and delicious this year. also, the wine pairing was silly, they brought out two glasses of wine at a time, when I inquired with the waiter he just said it was what his manager told him to do. I wanted to make this an annual tradition because last year was so fabulous, I'll probably only give raven and rose one more try next year.

Came here for Thanksgiving - huge disappointment! Stuffing was particularly disgusting...nothing but celery and tarragon MUSH. Turkey tasted like mystery meat. Service was TOO good - you know, when you're in and out of a restaurant in under 40 minutes? Not really a relaxing, leisurely meal. Felt like they were force feeding us for foie gras. I'll come back for a drink, but that's about it!

Had such amazing service here, everyone was so friendly. The food was great had a great selection for beer and wine. It was my fiances birthday he had such an amazing experience here. Would definitely recommend visiting.

Raven and Rose never fails to impress. The wait staff remembered us and dietary restrictions even though we've really only been there a few times. It's a bit pricey would be my only complaint. I had a $13 mixed drink that was the size of a standard lemon drop. The food is always exquisite. Don't be afraid to try something new there, you won't be disappointed.

Amazing experience at Raven Rose! Wonderful food, great cocktails, small wine list but very impressive. Best thing of our visit was seeing Daniel Mondok again!!! Have missed his food for a while!! He's taking the brand of Raven and Rose and put his beautiful twist on it!! Wonderful

Food was very good and the service was great. But the price was very high and the restaurant was so very noisy - it was difficult to talk and to hear what everyone in our party was saying. The prices were way too high for lunch and be aware that they charge or bread. They don't ask if you want to buy the bread dish but just say that they'll bring you bread which at normal restaurants it's included at no charge but not at Raven and Rose. That seemed a bit underhanded.

There for our anniversary. Served us complimentary champagne. Nice dim candle light setting. Amazing clam appetizer with a perfectly rich sauce. We had the scallops, wow. Good sized and best we ever had. Perfectly prepared. We also had the steak. Once again I have never had better. Melted in your mouth! With multiple drinks and tip we paid 185 but worth every penny! We got a seat close to upstairs bar. Noisy. Ask to be seated in main part of dining room.

The Raven & Rose is our go-to place for dinner before a show at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall or one of the theaters in the Antoinette Hatfield Hall. It is only 2 to 3 blocks from the theaters and there is a parking garage under the restaurant. Very convenient. The pork chop with polenta and Brussels sprouts and was delicious and the Middle Eastern inspired lamb dish was very flavorful and tender. Don't expect an inexpensive meal, but expect amazing food and service.

Raven & Rose is in an historic building in Downtown Portland. The food, drinks, ambience, and service were outstanding. I had the chicken, my wife had the pork chop, and we split a Caesar salad made from kale. Both of our dinners came with artistically presented side dishes. We each had a martini made from local Aria gin and Ransom vermouth, and we took the recommendation of our wonderful waitress, Margot, on a glass of red wine each. We finished with a pumpkin dessert. I had an espresso, and we split a glass of sherry. This was our delayed wedding anniversary dinner, prior to seeing Il Divo in concert at the Schnitz. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant for special occasions! It was featured in an episode of Grimm a few years ago.

Really good food and service. The dishes were artistically displayed and the variety was really nice. I only partially ding it because the volume was really loud once more people started showing up and the lighting is fairly dark.

Our server was very rude and our experience was poor. First, we were finally approached after we had been waiting to be served for nearly 25 minutes after getting seated. At this point, we were more than ready to put in our order for drinks and appetizers. As the server started to talk us through the specials, my dad politely spoke up and said that we actually knew what we wanted and were ready to order. The server rudely cut him off, saying "can I finish what I was saying first??". While none of us said anything, we were taken aback by her attitude, especially after we had been waiting patiently. The rest of the night, service was extremely slow and we had a long dining experience of almost three hours. As this was to informally celebrate my recent engagement, it was really unfortunate that the experience was such that we will never return here again.

The food was very good and the service friendly but the food was overpriced ($40.00 for salmon) and the wine list was very limited with not many choices and in my opinion a pretty high markup (3x). If I was on an expense account and needed a downtown spot this works but otherwise you can get much better meals in Portland for the price.

Gorgeous building. Very accomplished chef. Good bar. However, the food server and receptionist were poor. The prices were high, but we expected high prices. The dishes we ordered were very good. But again, the service lagged in value v. the price charged.

We visited Raven and Rose in celebration of you 32nd wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was pleasant as was the service. The waiter mentioned a number of specials including an aged 14oz Rib Eye with mushrooms and broccoli - it sounded fantastic. Upon arrival however I was met with disappointment on two fronts; the steak lacked flavor (it was not seared nor seasoned) and the cost, which was not disclosed by the waited (and I failed to inquire ) was $75 or $87 dollars a pound. Needles to say the meal was less than we hoped for but we enjoyed our time together non the less.

A wonderful restaurant right in downtown. The staff is sensitive to time needs for people who are going to a show. The main dishes were interesting and unique and everyone liked their dishes. The butterscotch pudding I had for desert was TO DIE FOR! YUMMY. Going back just for that.

Historic location with great service. Good food, great cocktails and dessert. A fitting atmosphere to linger from starters through to dessert. Go to engage with your dining companion over a good meal. Leave your cellphones in your pocket.

We came in for a light dinner before a concert. Enjoyed a tangy Perfect Pear cocktail, delicious mixed greens and beet salads, topped off with the tasty flatbread. All tasted fresh and flavorful. We ended an enjoyable dining experience with the wonderful butterscotch pudding. Not to be missed!!
The folks who greeted us and served our meal were all gracious and friendly. We love the calm setting for a tasty meal and relaxed conversation. Will be back!

The food and the service was outstanding. We had beef tender loin with caramelized onion and Yorkshire pudding. Fantastic. They also have interesting lighter fare, salads and desserts. Somewhat expensive, but with the cost.

Good food. Even better atmosphere. But I have to say this: the most absurdly small martini I have ever been served in my entire life. I thought I might be on candid camera. I actually laughed when they brought it out. I cannot believe they actually think that is acceptable. Will likely not be back although may go upstairs late night for dessert - but no martini!

The restaurant was so crowded the night we were there that it took away from the whole evening. The noise level was too much and the time it took for the food to arrive was extremely slow, especially as we had theater tickets. The food had to be consumed hurriedly in order for us to get to our theater in time.

I very much liked the look of the interior, and the food was generally good. The biggest problem was the noise. I could not hear the waiter nor my friend for conversation. I would describe it as painful, not "energetic." The Yorkshire pudding was very dry. It needed some au jus, which was not available. I would recommend the restaurant only with a warning about the noise.
The food is good not great. For the pri ...
The food is good not great. For the prices that they charge, the food should be exceptional! They charge $29 for marginal chicken. The noise level is very loud. You find yourself speaking loudly to be heard. I definitely will not repeat!
