We just love this place and try to enjoy it anytime we’re in town. They usually have a line, but the wait is manageable and they have a very efficient system for moving things along in their cozy restaurant. There is nothing on the menu...More

We were told we must have duck fat on our trip to Portland. They were good but very rich. Salad we ordered was very fresh but did not love the dressing. All in all not worth a wait. Seating is very poor. I imagine people...More
