    Delicious food great happy hour (and late night happy hour 10 on)! The burger is amazing! And for $5 at HH you can't beat it! Try the Siesta cocktail. Delicious!

    One of the best meals I've had in Portland. Super great quail, and friendly service. A bit spendy, but you get more than you expect. Large portions without being overwhelming. Take a date and enjoy

    Authentic French food. Can't go wrong with the foie gras or the cassoulet; if they have the pork stew it's light and warming. Deserts are home made and drinks are refreshing.

    Amazing dinner. Superb service and a nice atmosphere. Use OpenTable to reserve your dinner!

    Amazing sandwiches. Ham and Gruyere is fantastic for only $9.

    Salty and a bit disappointing. Good cocktails though

    Write off: How did James Beard award winner go so wrong. Poor service and even worse food.

    Bread, butter which is not made in house but local Oregon and chicken liver mousse.

    Open seats and they decide to seat my wife and I next to the bathroom. Only thing that stood out was the chicken liver mousse. Most of the food was pedestrian. They need more substance for the price.

    The ribeye was cooked to the chef's recommendation was perfect... So big, but perfect. Late night romantic looking spot but supposedly a good lunch early in the day also.

    Pork belly is delicious

    I'm not clear on all thee great reviews. Although I don't get the burger. Service was less than good. A smile isn't the only thing you need. Food is boring and bland.

    The burger is a serious standout here. Get it with the foie gras, you won't regret it.

    Great for special occasions, I actually cried when I tried the cremé brûlée

    Stephen Yamada · August 12, 2014

    We swooned over the Radicchio with Almond Vinaigrette, the Chicken for Two, and the Chickpea Crepe!

    Happened to visit during happy hour, and was pleasantly surprised to get such top-notch food at very low prices. Cheese plate, olives and fresh bread were all delicious! Cute atmosphere, too.

    Good macarons, but very tiny! That's why you can get a dozen for only $6.

    There is incredible talent in the kitchen at this restaurant . The Charcuterie plate was one of the finest flavour experiences I have ever; EVER; had. Seriously.

    Best cheese plate I've had in a long time. Everything we ordered was delicious! Whole trout is a must! Gnocchi, warm lentil salad - amazing!!!

    Burger is recommended

    Love this restaurant. Little sister of Le Pigeon, one of Portland's best restaurants. Open until midnight and usually not a long wait.

    Chef Erik Van Kley serves expertly prepared takes on Parisian bistro favorites like crispy veal sweetbreads, chicken liver mousse, and cassoulet; Nora Antene's desserts are tops. [Eater 38 Member]

    The housemade Picon rivals the real thing!

    Get anything on the chalk board. Foie gras, oysters, charcuterie, cheese plate, marrow bones. It's all fantastic.

    The snail tortellini and the goat cheese and lamb gnocchi are both out of control. You're crazy not to order. Ho Lee Fuk.

  • Billy T.

    The Havane (refreshing but not too sweet) and the Manhattan Nouveau (great twist on a classic) are excellent cocktail choices.

    Billy Terrell · July 16, 2013

    Le Pigeon’s more casual sister restaurant offers inventive bistro-style food, like citrus salmon carpaccio and charcuterie with sausage and quail egg.

    If you don't do Little Bird when you visit Portland, I feel sorry for you. The food is amaze balls and consistent for 18 months and counting. For those at R/GA, JDI.

    The food is delicious.. Menu ranges from a king salmon special which was amazing to the popular pigeon burger which was very big and juicy.. Fairly priced and you will find something you will love

    Reflecting on a recent trip to PDX, this place stands out as my favorite restaurant by *far* and likely one of my all-time favorites
