Take the elevator up to the fourth floor & let yourself be enveloped in the decadent atmosphere—a fantastic destination for wine, tapas, and desserts. (Also rooftop garden seating.)

White leather booths, wine galore, twinkling views as far as the rain clouds will allow—get the girls together, don your favorite abbreviated hemline and those wicked heels that will have you hobbling home, and go all out. Please, please, PLEASE don’t pass on dessert—the ‘peanut butter & jelly’ is a life changer.

Super eco-friendly sky-high wine bar with their own garden on the roof. One of the best views on the east side. Great happy hour nibbles.

Great new location!! – It's a new location at the "old Rocket", on top of a great building on E. Burnside. It's definitely lost some of the "neighborhood" vibe from the old location and is now a more trendy yet still comfortable wine bar. It is VERY different from the old location. If you liked the cozy, low key environment from the old place, the new busy trendy vibe from the new NR may not be your thing. It seems that it's no longer a "neighborhood wine bar" but a "downtown wine bar". There's still the same staff and same menu, which kept a continuity, but there is definitely some growing pains with the added staff getting used to the new kitchen. I'm excited to experience it in the summer with the view. The wine list is great, the prices are fantastic, the food....could have been better, could have been worse. Our party (5) enjoyed a lot of the menu. Our favorites: The cheese plate (great variety and the most fantastic triple creme that I've ever had) and the onion tart (classic and the perfect size). The butternut squash panino was savory and sweet, the clam (tomato based) linguini was simple, very well executed but could have had a bit more "clammy" taste (how often does one say that??). The major disappointment was the "roasted pork salad". I think it was more of a matter of execution (chopped pork vs. sliced, mixed with chopped salad and too many crutons) rather than taste. The pork tasted good (when I could find it) and the fried capers were wonderful (when I could find them and taste them seperately). But the whole thing mixed together.....disappointing. Our server was busy, but friendly and capable. We did have to wait quite a while for food service, but we knew it was the first night of the new space, so we didn't mind. Overall, it's a larger space, more noise, more time to wait, but still a good value for the venue and definitely good wine!!

Bad food! – Service was pretty good but the food was awful! I went for a work dinner. My food and the presentation were very disappointing. I will never go back.

used to be good – Man what a disappointment! This place used to be pretty good. I went there about a month ago, and it was really bad. The food wasn't cooked well, service was bad, but I thought it was just an off night. Went back again yesterday, and it was just as bad, if not worse. Our food was okay at best. Really small portions and horrible service. Even the wine selection didn't seem as good as in the past. Is it under new management?? I will not be going back any time soon.

horrible – Went here when the line at Ken's pizza was too long, what a mistake. The food was bad, unbelievably small portions (the cheese plate was a joke!), and waaaaay too expensive for what you get. I can't believe how much I paid for a BAD panini served with Ruffles. I mean, potato chips, fine, but Ruffles are the most disgusting, flavorless chips out there. Service was bad, and it took forever to get our bad food. In the end we would have eaten at Ken's by the time we were done (by the way Ken's is GREAT!). I also find it strange that I know of several friends who have had bad experiences here, wrote bad reviews on this site, which then were removed within weeks of being posted. Makes me think that all the good reviews are not really representative.

Elf portions – Inattentive service (I think the server had more tables than she could handle) and laughably tiny portions. I had lamb here last year that was $15, and contained no more than two ounces of lamb total. Come on!

Fantastic and Cozy! – I received a gift Certif for Christmas for Noble, and let me tell you, it was the BEST present! Sit at the bar and chat with the staff, you get more enjoyment from just watching the interaction there and into the kitchen. The food is outstanding, I had the Pork Shoulder that was to die for!

Perfect. – We had such an amazing dinner here. The spot itself is mellow and cozy, and the service is really wonderful. I had heard so many things about the onion tart that we had to sample it. It was delicious, however, we liked everything else even more! We tried a few of the specials, a pork terrine(perfect) and the most amazing dish with fresh morels and a fritatta. So sublime! We also had the seared salmon on the menu which was cooked to perfection, and the famous macaroni and cheese. That mac and cheese was by far the best I have ever eaten. We also had the creme brulee and a fabulous rhubarb crisp. Our server was wonderful and helped us to choose a really delicious Chenin Blanc. We LOVED this dinner, and we will certainly be back again and again.

Gawd. I had to leave Portland, and I couldn't take it with me. – I left Portland for Atlanta in July 2006... and I am still ranting and raving about the onion tart. I am even sending people from Atlanta who are visiting Portland to this place. What can I say? Can we bring this place to Atlanta? Once in awhile? Please? :-)

Fantastic wine selection – Of course you should go here for the wines, but the food is amayzing as well. The onion tart is addictive and the deserts are always on the mark. I adore this place.
