A bit pricey for dinner but a good value for lunch. Expect great service and solid fare including beautiful salads and the shrimp roll during lunch service and the flat iron, the duck and the seasonal fish during dinner.

Higgins remains popular among the button-up types downtown, and popular with reason, for the menu is fresh and delicious. Try the Halibut.

My experience over all was an A- and so this should still be interpreted as a good review. Our server was super awkward with no sense of humor and truthfully, he weirded me out. That takes a lot. But the food was delicious, though ever so slightly overpriced. The atmosphere is congenial, almost like you're in a living room. This is a place to take parents and bosses.

The best place for this style of menu. Everything is made in house and seasoned perfectly. The service is outstanding and the space is inviting. I've been there with many people including those in the industry and they all would go there again.

A Jewel – I gather that this restaurant has a well-established reputation, but we weren't aware of it. We've walked past the place many times on our way to nearby concerts and always said, "let's eat here next time we're in town." Well, we finally did and I wish we hadn't waited so long.

The food was outstanding -- great, fresh ingredients in perfectly balanced combinations, perfectly (not overly) prepared, nicely presented, and served by a staff that was attentive to detail but not smothering. (When booking the reservation, we mentioned that we were attending the concert and that immediately prompted them to say, "we guarantee to have you out of here by 7:15." That was representative of the treatment we received from start to finish.)

In short, about as near to perfect as you are likely to get.

Simply GREAT food. – Came around 9pm and because we already ate dinner, we just wanted glass of wine. Sat at the bar and the atmosphere was just perfect. Decided to split the charcuterie plate and WOW, let me tell you, it was just out of this world. All the pieces were made in the house so the quality was outstanding and everything tasted fantastic. Will be definitely back for dinner. There is seating for casual crowd and seating at the bar, but there is also third category - very elegant area for those who want to have high end experience. This place just has it all!

P.S.: The bartender was very friendly and knowledgable. Despite the fact that the bar was full, he found time to tell us about the place, the chef and other facts.

good food, but bad service – this place is well famous. so I went this place with my folks. it was very busy weekend after dinner time. still we could not get a seat, so we got a spot in bar side. that was totally fine because we still can order same dinner menu from bar table. but the waiter who serve our table, he doesn't have any class or manner to respect out folks. I don't know waht is wrong with him, but we got very bad treated.(pu the plate very hard, no water until we asked 3 times,hard to hold him to order to get silverwares) we are not there for free food. we are there enjoy classy dinner, but waiter was so rude and discriminated us. by the way, every single plates we ordered, that was so fantastic. great food, but terreble service! so I am not going back there.

Fresh ingredients make great food – I have eaten at Higgins numerous times (lunch and dinner) and believe it is one of the best restaurants in Portland. They always seem to use the freshest ingredients and come up with innovative, tasty food. The dining atmosphere is very nice and the servers friendly and professional.

Good atmosphere, great food! – We had dinner here last night before going to Wicked. The service was wonderful, the spinach salad with bleu cheese and squash was to die for! Nice quiet place to enjoy some delicious food and conversation before a show.
