Elegant, trendy neighborhood wine bar with a great selection of wines, not the best staff, but I don't go there to be entertained by them. This is a late night date place.
Great selection, nice staff, we'll be back! – Check this place out, I don't think they get a lot of press, but we were impressed with thier selection, price, and food offering. Happy hour, indeed!
This place needs help. FAST! – I have been going here since 2005. Back then it was busy and hard to get a table on a Saturday night. I've been here probably 3-4 times a year since. And each time it goes downhill a little more. This time they had no, and I mean no Oregon Pinot by the glass. They were able to recommend something else, but to not have any Oregon Pinot by the glass seems weird. I was there for about two hours, and no one else came in the place, probably not a good sign for a Saturday night. The only staff member in the place left the building a couple times and we even teased him that we were going to steal the wine if he kept leaving us alone. Maybe the owner has been on vacation for a month? That's sort of what it felt like, no management, no one caring about keeping things running. Please make some changes! I keep coming back hoping for a good experience but I am getting tired of being let dow
You Can Do Much Better For Good Wine – I read that this place is on the Top 10 list of Wine Bars. That would be fair if there were only 10 in town. The wine here is good, not great. Prices are good, but the food they serve is simple and the choices are pretty slim. The waitstaff is always the best part of this place. The biggest downer is the decor and atmosphere. It's very sterile 60's era white naugahyde. If you're in this neighborhood drive on to 28th and head to either Wine Down or Noble Rott. A better choice is the underrated Lupa on Mississippi. Or just wander to the Pearl and go to the best of the lot - Vino Paradiso. Pour has a nice owner and a good waitstaff but that's about it.
Great date place – I had a great experience at Pour. I went there on a first date, and the first thing we noticed was the inviting atmosphere. Once you're inside, you don't even know Broadway is right out the door. The girl who helped us was helpful and knowledgeable. We didn't really know what to order, but, with help, were very happy with the wines we decided on. We also ordered the cheese plate, the ravioli and risotto and all were delicious. I don't what the music in the background was, but it was nice...the whole air of the place just allowed us to enjoy great wine and talk to each other.
Great food and wine. – We were visiting Portland for the weekend and heard that Pour was the place to go to taste and learn about Oregon Pinot Noirs. At first we thought we might be disappointed-- the whites we started with were only okay, and the female bartender was not helpful at best and downright rude at worst. Then, fortunately for us, the owner walked in. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful, and served us some GREAT wines alongside a great trio of dips, incredible pepper raviolis, and an excellent cheese plate. Highly recommended!
Better Wine Bars Out There – We arrived at 5pm for Thursday happy hour and stayed until 9pm. After 1/2 hour, we had to request that the woman bartender/waitress take our order, and then she never came back to check on us. I had 1 glass of wine the entire night. The place was about half full while we were there and was not overly busy. We did flag down the owner who was pleasant and took our food order. Be warned, the cheese sandwich on the happy hour menu is an unusual combination of cheese, onions and berries.
Really unique space, GREAT wine list, fun owner – First - Robert the owner is hilarious. He has a dry sense of humor and infectious personality. Fun! The bar is very stylish and the chairs are so comfy! Attention to detail has been thought out well in this space. The wine list is fantastic and I have enjoyed some interesting wines here. Great staff and some sort of Spanish-infused music that set the tone perfectly. I wish they had a little bit more food on the menu, because I would go there a lot more since I live nearby. But for your money and for a pleasant evening with nice, real people - you can't go wrong here.
Best little wine bar, ever! – I was just about broken hearted when I read the poor reviews on Pour. It's a GREAT place!
On Valentines Day 2007, I had called Pour at 4:30 to make reservations for 6:30. There was a table for four waiting for us, the service was excellent and my friends and I really enjoyed the food. They TOTALLY saved the evening. I ended up running into more friends and had the best time, ever!
I couldn't imagine bad service at Pour. On another night, I wandered into pour after 11 p.m. and they stayed open until we were ready to go. On top of that, we were able to choose the music.
I highly recommend this chic little place!
THE Place for Oregon Pinot Noir – If you're an Oregon Pinot Noir fan, this is the place for you. Not only do they have great Oregon Pinot's by the glass, but they have a page and a half on the menu of others to try - most all of them at very reasonable prices. The more expensive ones are even reasonably priced for he quality of wine.
We had a lovely group of snacks -- the ravioli was amazing, along with the risotto -- both great. The cheese plate we had was great and I highly recommend the trio of dips with the blue cheese dip made with honey and white wine sauce. WOW!! A great, friendly place with an amazing wine list.
