    You’ll find pickled onions on your burger and foie gras in your profiterole, but also some killer fried green tomatoes on your pork belly and a really good chicken-under-a-brick. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    If I had $10 left to my name I'd come here for the bacon waffle and then take my chances with the world.

    Late night and limited-edition burgers are so popular! Gabriel Rucker, of Le Pigeon, only serves ten burgers a night. You can order one in advance when you make a reservation.

    They serve the catch of the day garnished with bottarga. You won't get the same umami flavor any other way. Its hard to find and worth it!

    One of the best & most memorable meals of my life.

    If you didn't order the foie gras profiteroles you have failed - go back and try again.

    This was the best food I have had in a long time! To die for! Everything was flawless! The chicken, summer "thanksgiving" both were phenomenal!!

    Please don't leave without ordering, finishing and thinking long and hard about the Honey Bacon Apricot Cornbread w/Maple Ice Cream. If you snag one of those elusive burgers, thank your lucky stars. Read more

    The Foie Gras Profiteroles are sinfully amazing. Do yourself a favor and order them!

    Probably one of the best food experiences I've had in a while. The foie gras profiteroles were acid-inspired genius

    get the chef's tasting menu to try all of their signature dishes. if you're not feeling that, def get the duck confit and foie gras profiteroles

    The duck with hummus was the best thing we had here, and the hazelnut cake with rhubarb was the best dessert. The foie gras profiterole was only okay.

    A superb dining experience on every level. You can not eat here once, there are too many items that must be tasted!!!

    Matthew G. · February 25

    One of the more expensive restaurants in Portland, but also one of the best. Chef Gabriel Rucker won last year's James Beard Northwest Award and the James Beard Best Rising Star Chef Award in 2011.

    Do NOT leave without trying the Foie Gras Profiteroles with Caramel Sauce and Sea Salt...MANDATORY (this coming from someone who doesn't even really love desert)

    Abacore Crudo and the Grilled Lamb Shoulder were terrific. Get it.

    Space is small. Only 3 tables in the entire place (2 short tables, 1 long table. Don't expect any intimacy or privacy unless your group can fill the entire table.

    Very cool place its has a small bistro feel but with very high end food on par with many 3 star Michelin restaurants

    The Portland Foodie Rite of Passage. Have not been, but this is the place the chowhounds will send you.

    Do the chef's tasting or do the burger. Anything else just doesn't do it justice.

    Matt · December 17, 2012

    Try the pigeon.

  • Irena C.

    Great burger...pickled onions are perfect on it. Mashed potatoes with the beef is a new addition and a great one. Summer of Riesling is a good deal. All three are tasty.

    Foie monte cristo. Smoked rabbit pie. Foie profiteroles.

    Our waitress insisted that I have the Rabbit Pie as an entree. I did not regret it for a second.

    Try the 4-6 course tasting menu! It is seriously the best I've seen in a while. Visited from Seattle, and we didn't want to leave!

  • Pam K.

    Loved the elephant fish and crab appetizer. The creme brûlée was ridiculous.

    Pam K. · January 23, 2012
  • Josh W.

    If Gabe Rucker is there and your stomach/wallet is up for it, ask for the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairings.

    Josh W. · December 30, 2011

    Foie Gras Profiteroles are a must-have!

    Sit at the bar and watch the magic from the open kitchen. Great food and ambiance.

    WW's Restaurant Guide 2010: "...layering complementary flavors and textures in clever combinations, as in the foie gras au torchon, an appetizer of warm scallion pancakes, hot cherry vermouth jam...

    Sweetbreads, cheeks, and the burger. They also do wine pairings.
