We were a family of 4 and were glad we were able to experience this restaurant. It is tiny so if you are early, there is no place to stand and wait on a rainy night so we were sent a few doors down to the Doug Fir Lounge which was a fun place to hae a drink and rate.... More

We had anticipated this date for a while and it met every expectation. The restaurant is very small and very "lively" but the dining experience was first rate We had the 7 course tasting menu and it was an adventure!! Certain things wowed (braised beef cheeks) and others were less a rave but not without great thought and imagination. Overall,... More

I'd have to say that to date this is one of the best dining experiences I have had. The food is exceptional and my dish, the quail, was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Staff and atmosphere are relaxed (shared tables), but their service and attention were of the highest quality. A true Portland gem!

French inspired cuisine - exquisite food, each dish brimming with tasty flavors, and nicely presented. Make sure to make reservations, it's a small restaurant and fills up in advance. Fabulous foie gras, fresh, colorful salads, creative soups and main courses. Excellent service and a very good wine list too.

Small place, be sure to make a reservation. Great inventive menu and mash-ups. I had short ribs with harissa. My wife had he pigeon breast. The foie gras profiteroles are amazing. They brought us a glass of sauternes to go with them on the house. Service was great and the food was fantastic. Sit at the counter and you can... More

This meal was truly astonishing. A feast for the senses. I had the beef cheek bourguignon as my main entree and the Foie Gras Profiteroles for dessert. Amazing! I sat at the chefs counter and got to watch them work their magic up close. It was a fantastic experience. Very highly recommended.

The worst food we have had in Portland! Unidentifiable incongruous ingredients. Who is in the kitchen? Please taste and you will see something has gone terribly wrong here!!!

Don't let the common tables be off-putting. The restaurant is relaxed, warm, fun, totally a great experience. Staff is super knowledgeable. You leave wondering how they do what they do in such a small place.

I have been trying to get reservations for the four of us for about a year. Le Pigeon seems to be always booked up. It was baffling to me until we actually had the pleasure of eating there. Now I understand totally and have already made my next reservation for a few months from now. My husband and I, along... More
