Portland, day 5, stop 4, takeout sandwiches. Pork rillettes - 3/5 Pastrami - 5/5 - Even reheated, this probably rivals the best pastrami back home. I can only imagine how good it is fresh. Overall, pastrami here is "as good as it gets."
My wife and I went here for steak while on vacation. We dressed like we were going to a NYC steakhouse, we were overdressed. The dining room is to the point with minimal decor and a open kitchen. It might be small to some but you don't feel like people are on top of you and that it may as well be a community table so it is successful and a nice place to take your SO. They seem to have a decent wine selection though I don't drink wine and the beer selection is geared more towards a craft experience which is unfortunately not my scene. So a Stella would have been nice but I was happy to find a reasonably priced 12yr old single malt instead. We got the tartare for an app. My wife is a full blown tartare addict. I am something of a functioning tartare addict if I do say so. Expectations were high and expectations were exceeded. I'll describe the taste in abstract terms: I felt the same satisfaction eating the tartare as I did when I heard the White Album for the first time. Do with that info what you will. Steaks: I ordered the LM Ribeye Med Rare and she got the Wagyu Med Rare as well. We split the string beans and mac and cheese as sides. First and MOST important, was the steak cooked to the correct temperature? Yes, both of our orders were cooked perfectly and cut against the grain so it was like eating umami flavored butter. The asparagus was a nice earthy compliment to the meat. Now, the few unfortunate parts of the meal. The waiter forgot to put in the mac and cheese so we had to enjoy a very good dinner without it. Disappointing but an honest mistake and the only reason he couldn't fix the oversight was because the mac needs 30 min to bake and our steaks were already on the fire. Also, I didn't realize I got the wrong steak garnish. I got the peppers and balsamic instead of the feta. No biggie, the balsamic was a treat. The price is very good for what you are getting. I'd put this kitchen against any steakhouse I've really enjoyed and payed close to $200 before tax and tip (I forget that there is no sales tax in Oregon...lucky). This meal was south of $150 after a 20% tip. I would go back and I would absolutely recommend it to you and yours
I'll cut to the chase. Very good steak, but prices are a bit high for dinner. Bone marrow is cool and tasty, but shouldn't cost $11. The ribeye was delicious, one of the best I've had in Portland. Steak frites were very good as well. They didn't have some of the stuff we wanted to order though, such as the mixed bread and the burger. Customer service was decent, no complaints there.
Either the folks reviewing Laurelhurst Market for Yelp are highly susceptible to the hype they hear on a restaurant, or I am a grill master on a world class level and never knew it. Five of us went for the first time last night for my wife's birthday, and sadly, none of us came away impressed. Atmosphere, service and -- what was truly disappointing -- food quality were all mediocre and definitely not worth the upscale price. I ordered the Chicory & Cocoa rubbed Hanger Steak on our waiter's recommendation. What was placed in front of me was a 5x3" pile of green -- the chimichurri totally covered the modest piece of meat beneath. The steak itself wasn't a great piece of beef. While the flavor wasn't bad, I definitely needed the steak knife to saw through it. My wife and son both ordered the Flat Iron Steak. The cut, quality, flavor and tenderness were all superior to my hanger steak, but both complained that the meat was cool when it arrived, and our server offered nothing in the way of assistance. My father in law spent 15 minutes cutting fat from the braised pork shoulder he ordered. Honestly, he left 40% of what was served him on the plate, truly one of the fattest cuts of pork I've ever seen in a restaurant. We ordered grean beans and onion rings as sides. The beans were fine, but again, a very modest portion for what you might expect. The onion rings were great, as were the deviled eggs, but we didn't drive across town to be impressed by deviled eggs. To top off our experience, I had brought a birthday cake in from La Provence in Lake Oswego. The cake was the best part of the meal. The restaurant charged us $1.50 a plate to eat it there. The environment was nothing special. Basic wood tables, institutional quality flatware, glassware and steak knives. Unfinished ceiling which revealed 2x4 trusses, insulation backing and ventilation tubes. Canned rock and pop music standards in the background. Our waiter was nice enough and I compliment him on his knowledge of the menu. He disappeared for long minutes at a time, though and only stopped a few times in our hour there to check on us. He did bring out the birthday cake with candles lit, but after he set it down in front of my wife, he was gone again and we didn't get plates and forks for nearly ten minutes. My wife apologized to us on the walk to the car, saying her coworkers recommended Laurelhurst Market so highly. My son declared that none of the beef there was as good as what I prepare on the grill at home. I love good meat and I love good service and I love a fun atmosphere in which to enjoy them. Unfortunately, I experienced none of that at Laurelhurst Market on Saturday night.
I have been here three times now. Hmm maybe four. Dinner mostly: which was fun and relaxed and decadent but not snooty. 5 stars. Popped in here after work but pre 5pm to meet husband and pick up some weekend meats. Their butcher case is glorious. 5 stars. Always sparkling fresh. Had the charcuterie plate and a beer. Nice Friday pm snack. 4 stars because it was awkward. I didn't really know what to do when I was there for a few minutes. I felt like I was in the way. I had to ask "um is the bar open? Can I sit over there?' There is a little sign that says "order at counter" but it would be super if staff could pay a penny of attention to people walking in door and looking for direction. Delicious pate and we got some scrapple for home. Yeah scrapple.
So sad, came on a Thursday and no scrapple. They said its a 3 day process and they're currently making it and it should be ready on Sunday. I fly out Sunday at 630am...owell, maybe next time. The guy was really kind about it and even told me how they make it...pig head, other random pig parts with corn meal, thyme...I tried calling ahead of time but there was an automated message...so I couldn't get through to anyone.
This place is awesome. Even though I didnt get to eat there. I just purchased a ton of charcuterie goods for the flight home and had dinner for the next few nights. Seafood sausage, blood sausage, andouille, hot dogs, and a few other sausages that I forgot about. The maeket is smaller than I thought while the restaurant part is huge. It's also got a cool aesthetic both outside and in. The staff gave me some good advice on what would survive the trip and packed me some good stuff for the road. Definitely would like to go back and eat at the restaurant itself
AMAZZZING ! just one word to describe it! It was definitely pricy but for the portion they serve, but with every bite, it was delicious! I got the grilled porkchop, and it was melt in your mouth most delicious piece of grilled pork I have ever had! The Mac and cheese also was very divine! Of course we had to pair it with a bottle of red wine to go with our meat entree! The steak frites were also deliciously well seasoned and the sauce goes so well with the steak. They definitely grill it to how you ask them to, the medium rare came just well off grilled and redness in the middle. Definitely worth it for the delicious meal you pay for! Will definitely come again for an anniversary or birthday!
We stopped in here for a couple of sandwiches and was very disappointed by the lack of friendliness or help from the cashier. I asked if they had a paper menu so I could get out of the way of any customers coming in and it would be easier to read then the chalk board. The lady at the counter simply said no, just there pointing at the chalk board. No offer of helping me select a sandwhich and seemed bothered I did not understand what some of the items were on the sandwiches. After we decided we stood there for maybe 5 mins while she sliced meat and saw us but certainly was not in a hurry to come back and take our order. We waited awhile for our order and I was not impressed at all by the sandwiches. The Pastrami was ok but too salty. The Pork one with Argula on it was saturated in oil. Not a place I would go back to try again.
Oh this is someplace we will definitely visit again. We arrived at 5:30 and were able to park in their lot. It's an airy spacious setting with a separate bar area. When you walk in you can peruse various meats. They looked good! We opted on the seafood of the day - black cod. It came with green beans studded with some of their house made sausage, cherry tomatoes, crunchy sautÃ©ed radishes and olives and a tiny bit of salad over a luscious and generous smear of slightly sweet sauce. Delicious! I can't remember the name of the dessert but it resembled a deconstructed cheesecake with a mango sauce and strawberries. Very tasty. Service was expert and friendly. Nice spot for our anniversary dinner!
One of the best places in PDX if ur a carnivore!! Actually the produce is amazing as well. I would suggest a reservation
Great food, great service. They serve some common cuts of steak, but also some cuts I've never heard of. It's my 4th time at laurelhurst, and I try a different cut each time. They are all great. Side dishes are just as good. The price is fair for the excellent quality.
I don't think I can really add anything to what everyone else has said. It met our expectations in almost every way. The salt cod fritters were a bit 'enh' which is sad as I was really excited for them. My husband got a $54 ribeye - a price I would never pay for a piece of meat but he cares about steak far more than I. I'd like to see more exciting sides and less sauces on the meat.
Came here for E's birthday and was not disappointed. We were able to make a reservation (online) the same day, but when we got there, at 5:30, the place was not yet full, so perhaps the reservation, for two, was unnecessary? Better safe than sorry on a birthday though, right? I love the atmosphere here. Cafeteria style, with wooden tables and chairs, set with nice glasses and linens. Lovely. This is the kind of place where you don't feel like you have to get all dolled up, but if you want to get all dolled up, you won't feel out of place dining here. The food. I'm not usually a red meat eater, but E loves a good steak, so.... RIB EYE! We opted to split the rib eye so that we could try more of the smaller dishes as well. We are SO. SMART. The rib eye is huge! We started with the smoked brisket empanadas (delish!) and the marrow bones. This was my first time having marrow... no regrets (and I really had to get over a few things to be able to dive in there). We also ordered the grilled rapini and the brussels sprouts, which came out to the table at the same time as the rib eye. Everything was wonderful. Creative flavor combinations in the rapini dish and the brussels were cooked just the way I like them- still firm to the bite and browned on the cut side. YUM. The rib eye... daaaaaannnnng. Blue cheese butter and fried onion rings on top of a perfectly cooked (medium-rare) steak. I can't say enough good things about this steak. I don't eat a lot of red meat, so I am, by no means, an expert, but it was really good, so don't let the hefty price tag deter you from indulging. We ordered a few glasses of the rioja, which was also lovely- maybe not my favorite red wine, but did not upset the balance of things whatsoever. Service was the lovely blend of professional and friendly that I wish I received everywhere. We will definitely be back.
This is our favorite restaurant in Portland right now. We have eaten here twice, and both times we've been blown away by the service, quality of food and overall experience. The only reason we haven't eaten here more is because it's on the higher end of our price range. I'm going to break this down into three parts, Food, service and Atmosphere. Food - 5 Stars. Having their own butchery right in house is wonderful. Right through the door you are greeted by their meat counter - a huge variety of charcuterie, sausages and more delicious meaty treats. Both times we've eaten here it has been dinner time, so I can't speak of what lunch is like but I am sure it is amazing. We started both meals with the charcuterie platter - a gorgeous display of different meats, pickled veggies, spreads and bread. I believe it was $16, and well worth every cent. They filled the platter, there was plenty for 2 to share. We have yet to find charcuterie as good as this in Portland. We've tried steak frites, hangar steak, brisket, mac n cheese and probably more things I can't think of... but everything we've had has lived up to high expectations. We are huge steak fans, and know how we like our meat, but they have a "suggested" guide and descriptions on the menus. The waitstaff were very knowledgeable as well. Nice bar with good mixed drinks and good bar staff. Service - 5 Stars. Fully attentive wait staff regardless of the amount of people at the restaurant. They know the menu, the drinks, etc. Never had to try to grab attention or anything. One of the times we ate there a group got placed right next to us, and our waitress asked if we would like to be moved. We didn't mind but we really appreciated the fact that she asked us that. Atmosphere - 5 Stars. It has that kind of "industrial but not industrial" feel to it. Cool lighting, kinda dim so it creates a romantic atmosphere but fancy dress is not necessary. We have seen people dressed in everything from jeans and tshirts to nicer attire. I would definitely say this is a good place to bring a fun date. High ceilings create an open layout, cool music, conversation slightly carries so it can be a little loud, but we personally like that. We are excited to go back.
BEST MEAT I HAVE EVER PUT IN MY MOUTH! Trying one of the charcuterie plates I most enjoyed the flavor of the rabbit pate, and I'm not even a pate fan. I had the steak frites and was blown away by the richness of the wine reduction sauce. The waiter was very knowledgable and helpful in my steak choosing and I highly recommend letting them help you choose too based on what cut and rareness you enjoy. My dates steak, the hanger, was the best steak I have had in my life. For dessert we had the rosemary tart, another divine treat. Lastly if you're a Shirley temple fan their homemade version is a must try!
Had a hunkering for some red meat... This place serves up fantastic steaks at a reasonable price... Half of what you'd pay in New York. The service is great too, although the place is so mobbed that you might have to wait a little while. We didn't have room for the dulce de leche cheesecake...
I will admit that sometimes service can be hit or miss, I have had some of the best service experiences of my life here, but periodically it is just mediocre. The food, however, is phenomenal. The way they prepare most of their seafood dishes is exquisite. The steak frites is nice and flavorful. The deviled eggs are tied for #1 in my book alongside Ringside Fish House. It is a bit expensive. Could use more micro beer selection. As with most places in this area, parking is a nightmare and be ready to drive around the surrounding residential areas for street parking. On busy nights there can be a wait, so call a little bit ahead. **To managers/owners: There was a random, sharp bone shard in my rib eye appetizers last time, nearly broke a tooth. I'm not talking about something along the side, per se, it was practically hidden inside one of the pieces. Waiter apologized briefly before running off, but nothing was really done about it. Honestly, I'm not bothered by it because there was no damage done, but I would definitely recommend cook's keep an eye out for things like this because I imagine it could be a nightmare if something did happen to the wrong person.
Really great restaurant if you enjoy steaks and charcuterie platters. My table had the Denver steak, the Hanger steak, and the Prime Rib Shoulder. The Denver was fantastic and perfectly seasoned. The Hanger steak was cooked to perfection and melts in your mouth. The Shoulder meat was good but the steaks were much better. We had the Brussels, they were really well done and not overly coated in sauce. The Mac and cheese was okay....I've had better. We also had the charcuterie plate that had duck breast and rabbit! Fun environment, loud and inviting. The kitchen can be seen on the way to the bathrooms. The parking isn't too bad if you find a spot in the nearby neighborhood. And for the drink you gotta try their Smoke Signal......flipping amazing. It uses smoked ice!!! Overall a great find! Try it out for sure!!
Meat loving partner said the steak he ate here (the rib eye, cold smoked, blue cheese butter, and fried sweet onion rings) was one of the five best steaks he has ever eaten. I'm the vegetarian. I had to eat fish (although I didn't ask whether any vegetarian options existed before ordering), and there aren't any super apparent options for those of us who don't eat meat. That being said, I was well-aware that I would have to go pescatarian. My partner was celebrating his birthday and we went to a vegan restaurant on my birthday. :) Also, we were super dressed up (we like to do that for fun) and although most portlanders are a fairly casual lot, we were made to feel right at home. The staff here made us feel very well taken care of, everything was delicious, and the evening was very special. I definitely recommend hitting this place up. Also! We got a birthday piece of meat as a gift! We came back the next day and ordered some bacon, cut at thickness number 5-- partner says it is the BEST bacon he's ever had...and that's saying something.
