We tried out Saucebox based on our hotel's recommendation and were not disappointed. We stuck to small plates and enjoyed basically Asian fusion tapas. Very popular at happy hour.

Saucebox was perfect for our last dinner in Portland. The decor is modern and elegant and noise level was pleasantly quiet. Our server, Tim, was very friendly and impressively knowledgeable about the food scene in Portland. We had the salmon and Korean baby back ribs....More
