I had Tabla on my list of places to try for more than a year, finally went there with friends last night. All of us did their 3 courses for $24 offering. For that you get small (not really) plates of an app, a pasta, and an entree. I started with mussels, about 10 of them, as plump and sweet as any I've had in a long time. Next, a pappardelle with a rabbit ragu, and finally, a perfectly done juicy pork loin. Unless you're a lumberjack, you would not push back from those "small" plates hungry. More important, every dish I tasted was exceptionally good. I can honestly say that dollar for dollar, it was among the best meals I've eaten in Portland. The tab for 4 of us, with a bottle of wine, and a couple shared desserts was less than my bill for 2 of us at Fenoiul a couple of weeks ago, and was far better in qualty.
My advice is run, don't walk to Tabla to take advantage of this deal before somebody comes to their senses. Bythe way, I have no connection to the place, wouldn't know the owner or chef if I tripped over them

Many of us on this board have always seemed to like Tabla.
It is one of my favorites, and the $24 menu can't be beat. I LOVE the Tabla raviolli and their risotto.
I usually take out of town guest here as it is 1) A great vibe 2) A great price and 3) great food.
And to top it all off- it is within walking distance from my house.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
