We went here after reading about their happy hour. Not that we saved any money doing that, but it was worth every penny! The charcuterie plate was comprised solely of house cured Canadian bacon (which, to my palate was a lot like a less-salty prosciutto),...More

Just had the best trout ever here, perfectly executed with amazing sauce. The fennel I didn't need but loved this dish. My date had the fois gras and loved it-amazing flavors but rich so be ready for that. Trout was very light. Amuse B great...More

I last ate at Paley's Place at least 13 years ago. I had one of the best meals I'd ever had back then. This visit was just as good. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome by the friendly, but professional...More

Great food and ambience in this little house turned restaurant. Menu definitely had some creativity that I couldn't quite nail down as to its origins - French/Russian was the best I could describe. The wagyu beef was tremendous. Pricey drinks, though the rest of the...More

My husband and I recently visited Portland to see my daughter and son-in-law and we chose Paley's Place for our first dinner out since it was next to our hotel. What a stroke of luck! Not only was the food sheer perfection, but the warm,...More

We stopped by for a quick happy hour. The menu was quite interesting -- salmon cakes and kolbasa varenyky (somewhere between a dumpling and a ravioli with Russian flavors). The happy hour drinks were small and weak; try ordering off the regular menu. The dining...More

Paley's Place is a delightful bistro and bar in the NW District of Portland. The happy hour drink selections are quite good and well-priced, and the bar menu is varied and delicious. We did not dine in the main part of this pleasant restaurant, which...More

We so enjoyed the food and the drink at Paley's Place this weekend evening. Perhaps the only miss I encountered was when I left the table BEFORE ordering my drink to use the restroom. Not a good move on this early Saturday evening after it...More

This is one of Portland's 5 best restaurants, from a person who tries them all. The menu varies regularly so that you get a dining surprise. And in 5 years, the food is always tasty and prepared as if the chef was trying to impress...More

Hi, I am traveling in tomorrow (2nd) and would like to know how best to get from the airport to the hotel. I have read a few descriptions but would like to keep things simple and get guided in. Can you arrange for a taxi to show me to the door or where to get a taxi to and someone to meet me? I have tried to find an email address online for the hotel but can't, I did phone to take one down but with a slightly bad line and a strong accent I am not too familiar with I didn’t take it down correctly. If you can get back to me it would be great and may help future travellers out. If not don’t worry too much and I will try to make my own way in. Cheers Steve
