“A great way to power up for the final push out!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

It is set up like an old school cafeteria, in the upper level of the Portland Ikea. For a very reasonable price, you can get a full meal in a clean and bright environment. Drinks seem to be refillable, and they even offer up real butter for your roll. Just like the rest of the store, this is a hopping area that is fortunately very easy to navigate. It would have been more enjoyable if the meatballs were about 10 degrees warmer though.

“Simple options”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

First time eating a meal here. Salmon and vege plate adequate though not fancy. Was tasty and I added a desert option that was very good. Friendly staff. Great view at simlpe tables and chairs. Was quiet when I was there. Can imagine it can get noisy at busy times and especially with children.

“Good food done right and fun too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

The food variety and quality is outstanding. The meatballs are legendary and IMHO live up to the legend, but don't limit yourself to them. The crab cakes with fresh Oregon asparagas was top notch and prepared just right. If you're in a hurry, grab a hot dog and some froyo on the 1st floor. If not, shop the kitchen goods and "scatch and dent" section for bargains.

“Reasonable Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

This was our first food experience at Ikea. Setup is cafeteria style. They have multiple specials at unbeatable prices; for 3 adults we paid $21. Taste is acceptable - not fine dining flavors but good for the price. Servers are very friendly - even the cashier were kind.
