We are serious foodies and we were not disappointed with the ambiance or the food or the service. We had the Ahi Tartare with Pork Ribs with a Foie Gras ice cream for dessert. The flavor in the pork ribs was intense but well balanced. All of the items on the plate complemented the ribs so that every time you... More

Despite - with hindsight - ordering far from the best things the kitchen was turning out, I did enjoy the food. The chefs are clearly talented and the menu is short (a good thing in my book). Portland is a friendly city and my neighbours were open to chatting....something about an election, can't remember if it was important or not.... More

Going into our reservation, I was excited. Generally, when you're hyped up for something, it's a let down because it just can't match or beat your expectations. Pigeon however... Took my expectations, wrapped them in duck liver, deep fried them, stuffed them in a canon, and shot them across the gorge. The tasting menu was sized perfectly. Sometimes you get... More

Excellent food and sevice. No privacy, as it is tiny and everyone is sitting on top of everyone. Also, go early and be out of there by 8:30, if you want the entire experience to be as good as the food, because the bar two doors down starts cranking then. The subwoofers ( new in the past few weeks) jar... More

After a long week of family vacation obligations, my husband and I were looking for a great place for a date. We had seen Le Pigeon pop up on review sites, but it wasn't until we took a walk past it and saw how charming it was that we made a reservation. The place is tiny, but well-planned. There is...

What a fantastic meal, again. It has been awhile since we last visited--and I wonder why! Excellent service, fun atmosphere, nice wine list. Food is king, queen and princess here. Wow. Started with a butter lettuce salad, delicate, great dressing and shaved radish. So tasty. The beek cheeks were so tender and flavorful. They fell apart. The coq & belly... More

This place is for foodies who appreciate a young staff line up and fun foods. We sat at the counter for a 9:30 reservation on Sunday night. That was the only time we could book it but when we got to the restaurant there were tables open for walk-ins. The food was fantastic and it was a great dinning experience... More

We went here based on all the reviews I had read about it on TA. I was not impressed at all. First of all, the place is so tiny - it only seats about 30 people, including the bar. Some of the tables are communal which we knew going in. I thought the menu was fairly limited so we opted... More

One of my best dining experiences in recent memory. The tasting menu combined with wine pairings was new and just about perfect. It is a small and joyful restaurant with a chefs bar that gives a perfect view of the imaginative preparation. Definitely worth my long journey. I will be back.

Thank Clay C
