“Been Around for a Long Time and Still Good”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

This remains a great place for Happy Hour, particularly out on the back patio. The food is excellent and the service is very efficient and friendly. This was one of the pioneer restaurants in SE Portland and continues to provide a nice atmosphere and reasonably priced good food.

“Enjoyable wild salmon dinner on the outdoor garden patio”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

My wife and I ate at Wild Abandon with our daughter and her boyfriend during our trip to Portland in July. We sat on the outdoor garden patio on a pleasant evening which was actually a little cool before we finished our dinner. It is under the trees and has several umbrellas. I started with a cup of mulligatawny soup, which was very tasty. My wife and I each had the grilled wild salmon with rice and vegetables. The salmon was excellent. Our dinner was very enjoyable on the garden patio.

“I love this little funky restaurant!!”
Reviewed 28 June 2012

The outdoor garden patio, covered with many umbrellas, is a perfect place to eat, on a warm day.
Their Happy Hour is wonderful, fantastic hamburgers with great fries, the Willamette Dream Salad, is one of my favorites.......blue cheese, currants, grilled green apples, candied pecans served on a bed of mixed greens!!! Their regular menu offers Cioppino, which is very good, steaks, mashed potatoes, whatever you desire!!!

“Always fun, always delicious, always different”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

We love this place,

It's atmosphere.....quirky/elegant/Portland sheik is both fun and relaxing.

The food is truly eclectic and the menu changes enough to keep us interested, with some standard dishes that are always there.

Good wine list and good advice.

Seafood is always done to my taste (new England born and raised).

Food is on the comfort side of healthy with excellent salad and vegetarian options.

We have eaten there so many times that...yes we have had a minor complaint or two but they simply take it back, fix it, get your something else or take it off the check without making you feel like a jerk.

Try it...you'll like it.
