As this was our first time to an upscale french restaurant in Portland we were excited to try it. Started with the charcuterie board and it was excellent. Tuna tartar, chicken liver, deviled eggs and chicharron were the favorites. Next up was the escargot and foccacia. Not the best rendition we have had. Mostly sauteed onions mixed in with a... More

Four of us, my wife and I and my brother and sister in law from Seattle had dinner here last weekend. My son, who lives in Portland, had taken his wife there for dinner on her 30th birthday and recommended it to us. We were in town to meet their new baby. It was a festive occasion, and we celebrated... More

The food was good. A little expensive for the service. It is open late so is a plus. We order the cheese platter I did not like the sides. On the other hand the double Brie burger was very good. From 10:00 pm to 12:00am it has late night specials at a good price.

This first rate comfortable current restaurant once had its feet firmly planted in classic French. It has migrated to Oregon, USA & picked up a few delicious liberties. Service is so sensitive they don't have to interrupt to find out if they are ok. Oddly enough two bottles of wine were infected with Brett & taken back, no questions asked.... More

Best meal that we had while in Portland. Very busy, make a reservation. Service was quick and friendly. Central location in down town area. Not cheap, but worth the money

My husband and I enjoyed our best meal during our Portland visit at Little Bird. Recommendations from friends and social media lead us to this charming bistro. The food was amazing!!! We decided to skip the entrees and make a meal of starters. We were not disappointed. After nearly 20 years in SF it was a shock to walk out... More

This is quaint restaurant with a French-themed interior. The waiter was extremely friendly and so knowledgeable about wine and their wine list. He made a fabulous recommendation for our meals. The mains were the egg/mushroom dish and the daily special of scallops. The scallop dish was wonderful with couscous and this perfect sauce. The egg dish was very rich and... More

Exceptional French inspired food. We've heard rave reviews for some time but this was our first visit. Opt for a mezzanine table if one is available. Wonderful experience

Little Bird is one of the nicest little restaurants in Portland. The food is excellent, fresh and well presented well. The restaurant has a comfortable and relaxed feel. Although relaxed, it's a fine dining experience.

Great find right near my hotel. Perfect seat for one at the bar for dinner (without a reservation). Food and cocktails were perfectly executed. I enjoyed fresh oysters and fried chicken coq au vin - an interesting spin on a traditional dish. I would highly recommend Little Bird Bistro.
