Open only on weekends, Simpatica Dining Hall has an excellent brunch and wonderful multi- course, prix fix dinners on Friday and Saturday nights only. Every night has a different set menu for dinners that always sell out, so book as soon as you know you’d like to dine there. They usually post the upcoming menus online. Brunch is great but... More

45 min wait at 11am Sunday too long for me to do again. I had the french toast, which was very good. Cadillac Cafe's is a bit better. Food delivery fast. Service good. I sat at the 6 person community table with 3 other people and found it fine. Can be loud inside. Glad they had a few seats in... More

Attended a wine maker dinner for an Oregon Pinot producer. I have attended many of these type events at various restaurants over the year and this event was very very well produced. Each of the five courses matched wine perfectly. The food was great and presented in good order and temperature. I recommend Simpatica.

We've been going to Simpatica for about 10 years, even before it had a permanent home in its current location. Have never been disappointed. I even had my retirement "dinner" (actually a great selection of appetizers) here because it gave me the biggest bang for my buck by far. Yesterday we went and I had the bavette (a small steak...

Unique menu worth the walk from downtown Portland. My husband and I were lucky enough to arrive early at 9:30am and be seated right away on a Sunday morning, but by the time we left there were plenty of people waiting for this amazing brunch. We ordered the cod hash, waffle, side of bacon, and the biscuit with strawberry jam.... More

This great dining establishment is just marked with a sandwich board on the sidewalk. You enter through a set of double gothic arched top doors into the lower level. The dining room has a nice feel and you can see the kitchen when you walk in. We had reservations for dinner. After everyone arrived the chef come out and explained... More

This place is not very visible from the street and is inside a little industrial type office building. It means you're not standing outside if you have to wait and they have help yourself coffee. They take reservations and the menu changes regularly. Great breakfast with lots of options. The chicken and waffles is great.

We arrived before 9:30 and had no trouble seating for 4 - however there were large parties in the restaurant and waiting. So make a reservation or go early! The waffles were really good as was the French Toast. Eggs were very good too. Reasonably priced, largish servings and very good too. The burger and fried chicken were very good... More
