This place was fabulous! We ordered four South American-inspired tapas: ahi ceviche, steak tartare, lomo saltado, and bone marrow. Everything was phenomenal. We also both ordered supremely tasty mocktails and finished it off with a banana dessert that had dulce de leche to die for....(Two informational non-complaints: It's a little dark in there, so our older eyes had trouble reading the menus without phone flashlights. There is no espresso available for dessert, just drip coffee.) I look forward to trying other dishes soon!More

Lechon is an amazing restaurant! This restaurant specializes in tapas of a wide variety. Every tapa I have tried at this restaurant was amazing. This was my second visit to this restaurant, both visits were outstanding. I highly recommend the pan seared scallops, flank steak,...brisket empanada and roasted brussels sprouts. The desserts are also very good. I tried the banana caramel, it was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

Booking is recommended if you don't want a wait for dinner. Service is efficient and friendly. We decided on the tapas option and chose 6 selections between the two of us. Unfortunately, and a major fault with the service, is that the plates came rapidly...one after the other. Surely the kitchen can manage food delivery more professionally. My recommendation, if ordering tapas is to simply order 2 dishes at a time prior to ordering further options. This will ensure your table is not swamped with plates. Despite this flaw in service we did enjoy our evening the food was all cooked and presented to a high standard.More

From the cocktails to the Tapas to the banana Carmel pie the flavors and tastes were wonderful and unique! We visited on a busy evening and sat @ the bar but the service was great and the staff checked with us regularly.

LeChon is an outstanding restaurant with wonderful food, service and a very happy and lively atmosphere. We enjoyed several different tapas and small plates which were unique and perfectly prepared. When you are in Portland, you really need to try LeChon, but be sure to...make a reservation in advance to assure you can get in when you want to be there. I promise you will have a great time and a wonderful dining experience.More

LeChon is a South American cuisine inspired tapas restaurant on the waterfront in downtown Portland. A large tapas menu with meats, fish, and many vegetarian options allows for trying multiple dishes. We had shrimp ceviche, scallops, cauliflower, patatas bravas and foraged mushrooms dishes. All were...excellent with interesting flavors and methods of preparation. They had fun and different drinks including mocktails for our non alcohol drinker. Service was attentive and friendly. All in all, a great culinary experience!!More

This is a busy place that you will need a reservation for, especially on a weekend. We ended up waiting for quite a while for our table, even with our reservation. Food is tapas style and shared by the table. We ordered an empanada, mushrooms...and flank steak, all of which were good. The cocktails are fun. Because it was so busy and we were just a couple, we were overlooked by our server who was serving some larger groups, which was a bit irritating.More

Wow! The food was just excellent. Not some of it, all of it! We had 8-9 dishes between the 3 of us and every one was prepared with great flavor. Even the vegetable ceviche which frankly sounds somewhat boring was outstanding! A must visit in...Ptown.More

The highlight of our Portland visit, we started with individualized takes on favorite cocktails like the customized old fashion with rye and cardamon. All the tapas sizes offerings were amazing, crisp pepper empanadas, complexly flavored mushrooms, spicy Peruvian chicken lead up to the moist pistachio...cake with strawberry ice cream. The jellyfish aquarium added a soothing completion to a wonderful dining experience.More

We had our grandson with us and there were children's selections. He ordered a terrific hamburger (inexpensive), but I don't remember what else.
