The worst food we have had in Portland! Unidentifiable incongruous ingredients. Who is in the kitchen? Please taste and you will see something has gone terribly wrong here!!!

Don't let the common tables be off-putting. The restaurant is relaxed, warm, fun, totally a great experience. Staff is super knowledgeable. You leave wondering how they do what they do in such a small place.

I have been trying to get reservations for the four of us for about a year. Le Pigeon seems to be always booked up. It was baffling to me until we actually had the pleasure of eating there. Now I understand totally and have already made my next reservation for a few months from now. My husband and I, along... More

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
