Initially, I had no interest in dining here. The name is too childish, the menu appeared boring, and its big brother Le Pigeon has communal dining, something akin to having your wisdom teeth pulled. If I want to sit at a wooden table watching 12 strangers chew on their food, I'll move to Moldova. However, the Little Bird, it pains... More

Had an early dinner with friends before a concert. We were tight on time and our server responded with suggestions that would help us enjoy ourselves and still have plenty of time to make our concert. Wonderful place, intimate yet casual. A bistro just as in France. Cooking to match, all of our entrees -- two fish, one marvelous brie... More

Little Bird nests in the center of downtown Portland. It is a fine example of a French bistro -- a bit matter-of-fact, a bit plain in décor, not terribly expensive, and excellent tastes.

The previous reviews encouraged us to book at Little Bird, and we are pleased to confirm their good experience. The foie gras torchon was outstanding - more than enough for two to share, with a lovely presentation. The wine choices were fairly priced, and the service excellent.

I've been here twice now, both times on work trips. I have greatly enjoyed everything I've ordered: best charcuterie plate hands down, the burger was upsettingly good, their negronis are high caliber, and their chocolate mousse dessert (recommended by my server) was memorable even if you are "not a dessert person." Service is professional but not uppity, and the vibe... More

This restaurant came well-reviewed and it did not disappoint. The staff was very helpful and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very cozy on a cold evening. The next time I am in Portland,it will be #1 on my list of where to have dinner.

Found this place online & reserved on open table - the sign outside was really small hard to see my Uber & I almost missed it- Got a... More

My friend is in love with their Coq au vin and made our reservation before I even knew she was coming to OR! We started with the charcuterie which was delectable. My friend got her fix and was nice enough to give me a little taste, and I understand why she is in love with this dish. I had the... More

The Little Bird doesn't open until 11:30 am so if that's lunch or brunch to you so be it. On the weekend it is only dinner fare as they don't open until 5pm. I visited this restaurant on a short 3 day gastronomic tour of Portland along with 2 other family members who were "foodies". Although we had a reservation... More
