Surprised I haven't seen a review of this place yet ... we had dinner there this past Wednesday evening. We'd read one review (Portland Monthly, I believe) that commented on the lighting (too bright) and noise -- don't know what they were talking about with respect to the lights, and while the ambience was energetic, I've certainly eaten in much louder places than this and didn't find fault with the noise level at all. Food-wise, she had the rotisserie chicken (very good), I had the grilled sturgeon (excellent) and we shared the flatbread (outstanding). I think we've followed mixologist Dave Shenaut to every restaurant he's been a part of, so we knew we were in good hands with the drinks -- an excellent menu focusing on classy, classic cocktails. After dinner, we went upstairs to the Rookery Bar, which is even better -- it wasn't very crowded, I can see it being a happening place on a Saturday night, but we sat by the fire on a couch and enjoyed another cocktail.
All in all, an exceptional evening.
