Always a great time, service is wonderful and food is amazing.
A friend and I returned to Three Doors Down after a long time and enjoyed it very much. The decor is lovely and stylish with a nice bar area. The menu is classic northwest cuisine, the food very fresh and well prepared. I would highly recommend this local favorite, after several decades it is still a winner.
Bad unfriendly server spoiled everyone’s evening
Amazing service.... very gracious and accommodating (esp when we arrived just before closing due to show reservations). Food was awesome, Matthew was very welcoming & took great care of us. Excellent experience!
My beau and I chose 3 Doors Down Cafe for our date night last Friday. We were very happy with the food, and the service. Everything was delicious- we will be back!
I’ve been here several times over the past 10+ years. Food and service are consistently excellent!
We LOVED our dinner at Three Doors Down! This restaurant has been a mainstay of wonderful local dining in the trendy Hawthorne District for many years, and I was thrilled to see its quality and Portland quirk is intact. Food was phenomenal, drinks were creative & classy, and service was smooth (if a little obsequious).
The only negative I have is that we made a reservation and asked for the quietest possible table because one of our people is hard of hearing--but the noise level was really high when we arrived at 7, and our table was in the middle of the noise instead of a far corner. Noise level came down at 9pm and we lingered over coffee comfortably in the warm atmosphere so it was a minor inconvenience. Other than that, a superb experience.
We had a fantastic meal here. The food was outstanding and the service was perfect. They have great cocktails and a amazing wine list. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Wonderful venue and music!
Wonderful new years eve dinner, service and food were terrific.
Not as good as usual and not the service we usually experience.
The food was great but it took an hour to receive it. We saw our neighbors seated across the room after us and they were done before we got our food. I’d ask that you warn people if it’s going to take that long, because if it’s what they ordered they might change their selection. I’d rather not end up with grumpy diners who are hangry which is what happened !
Great food and service! Cute restaurant with a nice ambiance...
The wait staff was able to confidently offer dairy free options. The chef is extremely aware and responsive with dietary restrictions. The food was amazing. The staff was attentive without being cloying. 11/10. We will be making this a regular repeat dining location.
Food is consistently great, hot and tasty. We have been going here for over 25 years.
I discovered Three Doors Down in November before I moved to Portland. Their Sunday night special of spaghetti and meat balls is absolutely wonderful. I took my cousin and her husband there this last Sunday night and we all left happy, warm, and having had a wonderful dining experience.
My parents were visiting from the ‘burbs of Seattle. We all had the most fabulous time- service was beyond excellent and the experience was indulgent while being comfortable for all of us. We could have ordered the whole appetizer menu, but we settled on sharing a few and split entrees for the small fee of shared plates- so worth it- each was plated beautifully and everyone was pleasantly full. We ordered several desserts to-go and they were all delicious to the last crumb as well! Thanks so much for a fantastic evening!
Amazing service, consistent, friendly staff! We have beeen going here for 12 years and it’s always top notch and delicious.
Love this hidden gem. It's been in the same location for years and it is always great!! Food is amazing, with great variety. We go on special occasions or during the holiday season. Siddle up to the bar for great Happy Hour deals or splurge and have a nite you won't forget!!
The food is always solid, the staff attentive, did I mention the food!
It's our favorite, good food and friendly atmosphere.
We had a great dinner and a great server..
We've been there a number of times over the years. Never disappointed.
Excellent food and service in a very comfortable setting. A bit loud but not so much that it distracted from our meal.
Always warm and welcoming with the added plus of great food.
Nice evening. Good food and great service.
I've been here a handful of times and this restaurant never disappoints.
Our "go to" Italian in our neighborhood. Super consistent in the quality of their offerings and a delightfully upbeat atmosphere.
Omg. The Diavolo sauce was delicious with perfect spice. Desserts were decadent.
All of the food we ordered was fantastic.
We loved the roasted cauliflower. The brined pork chop was tender and delicious. We appreciated that there was not a lot of salt on the food which tends to overpower the taste. We enjoyed the Bocca Negra but the Malted Milk Pot de Creme was a perfect end to our meal. It was very light and superb.
The service was excellent. The staff was very attentive.
We will certainly recommend your restaurant and return to have another meal.
I had stopped eating here because parking was such a challenge. This time I got a spot right in front of the door! The food is as good as ever. I'm newly vegan so I had to ask some questions, but there were several good choices for me and my bloodthirsty date! The service was exemplary. No rushing, answers to all our questions and little requests. A great place!
We went to dinner with a small group and were looking for a place with veggie options because we have a vegetarian in the group. We were pleased with the variety of meat free options for our friend to choose from. The service we very attentive. Food was timely, no waiting. Drinks were delish and dessert was excellent. Would come back again.
Service was friendly and the right amount of attentive, food very very good. Went with two who are hearing impaired, so there is NO noise level that is low enough, but they seated us somewhat out of the way. We will definitely go back.
Our server was great! We were celebrating two family birthdays and she made it a great evening for us.
We go to 3 Doors Down every November for our Anniversary, and the food & service is always great. Can't wait to go again next year.
It had been quite a while since I have visited 3 Doors Down. That is a mistake on my part because I love this place--the service is great and the food is excellent. I won't wait so long to go back.
This place is AMAZING!!!!
To start, the warm bean dip that they serve with the bread is OMG GOOD! (I've never raved about beans before. These are absolutely worth raving about!)
The seared scallops appetizer is incredible. It may be the best scallop dish I've ever had, even beating out the scallops we had at a two Michelin star restaurant. The caramelization on the sear was perfect. And the celery root puree that the scallops were served on was delicious.
I had the gnocchi appetizer for my main course. The gnocchi melted in your mouth. (Be sure to save some bread to sop up the gnocchi sauce!)
My husband's double-cut pork chop was also really good.
Even though the food was phenomenal, the highlight of the evening may have been our server, Mary. Not only was her personality wonderful, but she was also very knowledgeable about the food, as well as the food preparation. She made our evening.
We enjoyed our experience so much that we went back again the next evening!
CONSISTENTLY HIGH QUALITY FOOD, GOOD AMBIANCE AND EXCELLENT SERVICE. BAR IS EXCELLENT AS WELL
I appreciate good food and service. 3 doors down always delivers!!
We have been going to 3 Doors Down since it opened some 25 years ago. Its food is consistently very good to excellent. They are also very accommodating and the waiters and waitresses are always very cordial. It is a great dining experience.
