Sip on a Templeton Abbey at the Bluehour, an LA-esque restaurant in the Pearl. Lucky visitors may spot a member of the local glitterati; come with your Instagram app open and ready.
Steak frites w/mustard sauce, fries & a basil gimlet make a tasty way to start off your night. Modern chic interior & service with a smile. Chocolate Mint after dinner drink and cream brulee wraps up your night nicely.
Food may be great but the service is horrible. Met my attorney friend from Seattle there. We were both tired and dressed in our comfort clothes, jeans and sweatshirts and sat in the bar. Though, it was not busy no one approached us. Servers, bartenders, and hosts were walking pass our tble over and over but they completely ignored us and made us feel unwelcome. We eventually left after 20 minutes. I felt bad for my friend who had never been to Portland before.
fave restaurant in pdx – Love bluehour! I think it is the prettiest and classiest restaurant. I like that I can sit in the restaurant and have a special meal or hit up the cheap happy hour or eat in the bar and enjoy cocktials @ anytime, w/ reasonable prices.
Lovin the muffins – Love this place. Very clean,classy and the food is simple and tastey. I love the little muffins the served with my breakfast!
Always A Good Night – I was just here again last week with friends and it reminded how great Bluehour is. Truly great staff is, the location is nice and a pretty place to grab some food and a drink.
Also it was fun people watching.
Always superb.... – Stop by whenever I'm in town. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the ambience!!! Elegant, classy, always charming (and busy ... maybe the secret's out, but wish happy hour wasnt so crowded)
Have never had dinner. (the menu looks pricey)
Mostly happy hour and lunch.
LOVE THE COCKTAILS!!!!!!!!!!
Great staff. (Cris was our waiter twice at lunch)
Yes there are the trendy types and the high rollers, but also can occasionally be a nice place to mingle (if it wasnt so loud between 7-10pm)
Overall, highly recommended.
We're done with bluehour – I don't know if Bluehour changed ownership or management, but the food has gone from being some of the best in the city to not worth eating. Four of us had dinner there this week and from the appetizer to the dessert, nothing was very good. My wife couldn't even eat her main dish and I only ate mine because I was hungry. Even the bread they put on the table lacked flavor. Our meal cost more than $300. Never again. Too bad because the wait staff was professional and the interior still elegant. By contrast, two nights later we had dinner at Higgins. Everything was amazing, the way Bluehour used to be.

Terrible service – Went there for happy hour. Our waiter was very rude. Manager was nice. Food was good.
always a treat – bluehour is my neighborhood restaurant and I am probably there way too much, but its a Portland favorite. The food is consistently well executed and flavorful [I want to roll in the black truffle gnocchi sauce] and the staff warm and welcoming. My favorites include the salmon tartar, bacon wrapped scallops, and anything that Chef Drew has as a special [fried green tomatoes with fried oysters last summer were amazing]. The bar menu is also a good find, with great pasta and an excellent fondue. And one of the best burgers in town.
The only negatives that I can think of are a rather pedestrian wine list [but that is changing for the better] and tough parking in the Pearl [which is why they have a valet!].
Go and enjoy the food and the great people. And avoid the attitude and wanna be folks that tend to inhabit the bar on the weekends with their turned up shirt collars, loud voices and taste for Tiajuana Speed Balls.
