Last Valentine's I blind folded my husband and took him to this place. Everyone had as much fun as I while I brought him in and had him squeeze between the line of tables. Great food, nice sheek and fancy. Like it.

I love your restaurant, I own a restaurant in downtown Portland and when I go out to eat your restaurant is one that always comes to mind. Good food, service and a unique dinning room. Keep it up!!

This is one of my Portland favorites. The food is excellent and the drinks are great too. The service has always been exceptional as well. If you're willing to spend a little bit more than the average on dinner, then this place will not disappoint.

I use citysearch all the time and honestly I'm suprised this place had such high marks. The food was absolutely HORRIBLE! I ordered beef ribs and received a plate full of fat. I managed to find three bites of meat that had only a little fat on it before I gave up. The potatoes that were served were like three stripped tater tots. Tater tots would of tasted better also. My wife had crab risotto which tasted like uncle ben's with a crab claw thrown in. It had no flavor and was very bland. This was the worst place we have ate using citysearch. The service was the only bright spot . The seating is horrible. This place is way to overpriced for what there serving. Where is chef ramsey when you need him. Upscale French-Creole cuisine my a. This s is bad. Will never go back and won't recommend. Take a trip down the hill to Gotham Tavern and save yourself some coin.

I too used the coupon on Forkfly. It was buy 1 get 1 free from the happy hour menu. The happy hour menu was awesome. I ordered the burger and it was more than I could even eat, very tasty! I ordered a warm drink (can?t remember the name) and it was perfect! I hadn?t ever been in that part of Portland, I?ve definitely been missing out. I?m always complaining about the bright lighting at places and the lighting here was perfect, dim with candles. Nice music. Since the happy hour menu was so impressive, I?ll be sure to be back to try the actual dinner menu. Maybe I?ll get lucky and they?ll change up their coupon to include entrees :)

I just got Forkfly yesterday for my iPhone that gives users coupons for restaurants in Portland. It also gave me great directions when I was trying to find Roux! Anyway, I was in that neighborhood visiting a friend and Roux came up first on Forkfly along with a serious discount (I think I get how it works now). We went in and had a great meal. We just did happy hour, but it was really impressive in a time when most restaurants seem to be skimping. The atmosphere at Roux is wonderful. Dim candle light, and charming music. Our server was very pleasant and patient. Our drinks were perfection also! If you're ever out on Killingsworth it's a must visit. We will most definitely be back!

I love their brunch on Sundays. My favorite is the crab benedict. SO delicious. It is essential to enjoy a brunch cocktail while you wait for your meal, it may take awhile.

Roux offers a great Cajun style brunch on the weekends, complete with yummy gumbo. The patio is a great dining space for the summer, and you can find a tasty Hurricane here as well.

I generally come in by myself and always sit at the bar, so I don't usually have to wait to be seated. It doesn't matter who the bartender is, they are always friendly and attentive. I love that every drink on their menu is like going on vacation -- and always perfectly mixed. I'm really happy about their new "happy hour" menu having more options.
I also wanted to mention that my husband and I were stuck at home with the kids on New Year's Eve and called them and even though they were totally slammed for the night, they agree to do a to go order for us. That really made our night!

Roux was a disappointment from the moment we stepped in the door. My girlfriend and I made reservations, yet ended up waiting behind others who did not have a reservation. When they did seat us, we were given the absolute worst seats in the house (we were wedged in the middle of three large parties who were shouting and yelling into their cell phones). It took ONE HOUR to get our food once we ordered! An hour to wait for an avocado dish and salmon is absolutely unacceptable. Once we finally got the food, it was nothing special at all. The fish was undercooked, and the accompanying rice and pepper sauce were devoid of any flavor or kick. I didn't try my girlfriends avocado dish, but she commented that it was bland and nothing special. At the end of the evening our server apologized for the long wait and offered us a free dessert which was the only pleasant part of the evening.
We were both looking forward to going to Roux, but by the end of the evening we couldn't wait to get out of there. They mention 'attentive service' as being one of their concerns on their website, but in my experience it was the polar opposite! I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!

This was my first time eating at the Roux restraurant and what a wonderful time. I have not eaten such fabulous food in many many years. Everything was just exceptional. I had the New York Steak for the main course that was cooked to perfection. The Crawfish pie is definitely something that will have one returning. The Waiter was one of the "Best" I have seen in a restaurant. The service was definitely a 5 star as well as the entire meal. The one thing I was totally impressed with was the fact ALL the ingredients they prepare their food with are "real". No artificial JUNK!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a memorable "Cajun Experience."

This was my first time at Roux. It was absolutely amazing! The waiter was very helpful with making menu choices. Recommended a cocktail and told me that if I didn't like it, he would get me something else. He was very professional, but very real, not stuffy or fake. Everything that we ate was great! starting with the Crawfish pie. I had the crab stuffed trout and my mother had the steak which was prepared to perfection. The sides of collard greens and potatoes were just melt in your mouth. We ended it with the bittersweet chocolate pie. We went because of a gift certificate and we were both so grateful to have had the dining experience at Roux. Highly, highly recommend it. Please don't listen to the negative responses from the people who clearly just need a reality check of what matters in life all the way around. Please go and support this great business. It really shows that the owner has the same philosophy as Mr. Farrell, another Portland restaurant owner, who says, "give them the pickle!" make reservations so that you can have that certain table that you want.

I'm not usually inclined to write reviews, but I felt the one titled "Mess" on Roux was unfair, and then I read how the author has reviewed previous restaurants, and it made more sense-- they clearly aren't happy eating out. I have even reviewed Roux before, but I thought since I've just eaten there again, it couldn't hurt and this is why.

I have been trying to find places that remind me of my favorites back home-- and I'm always skeptical of trying Creole, Cajun, or "New Orleans" fare outside of Louisiana. But now having tried most of the places here in town (Acadia, Screen Door, Bernie's, Delta and Roux), I have to say this place is my favorite.

One of the things that I think folks do too much is the "in your face" spice-- when not all Creole food is spicy. Seasoned, and seasoned well, yes. But fire-- not so much (of course there is time for that too). Creole foods are about flavor and great, fresh ingredients. At Roux, everything just always seems right-- spice and seasoning, homemade ingredients (they make all there own sausages, and the andouille is some of the best), a nod to both classic dishes (I had the Chicken Clemenceau on my last visit that was as good as the version at Arnaud's) and interesting renditions that are both NW and New Orleans inspired (and if you've been to August, Palace, NOLA you know this is what they are now doing). The red beans during the last visit tasted as if they were right from K-Paul's.

At some of the places above (and I won't be too specific, you should try for yourself), I've had gumbo that was separated, blackening seasoning that could burn the roof of your mouth, overly salted and greasy foods, bland grits (now how hard is that), rubbery shrimp and more-- framed with indifferent service.

I've just always enjoyed the food and drinks at Roux, the staff is always lovely, the space is charming, and in addition to all the food talk above-- the brunch is one of the best deals in town. It makes me feel like I'm home!

Greeted at the door by a hostess who clearly did not want to be bothered with customers (maybe she was having a bad nite?). The place was empty and where does she choose to seat my party of 2? Next to a party of 12. C'mon, there was a room full of tables to place 2 people that clearly wanted to have conversation over dinner. Our combo watier/bartender/busboy was not much better.
I've been to NoLa many times and the menu resembled New Orleans fare, but Portlandized. Not bad, not good. But 'OK' food does not trump nasty service. And the bad oyster that had me in the bathroom for the next day didn't help either. Skip it - go to New Orleans.

Went to Roux on my bday in May 2008 and the food was incredible. Thinking about the place days afterwards..I went back in June and wow was I dissappointed. The menu had changed alot of the "Roux Specialities" that I tried where no longer available, and not for the better. It was just average fare with a few cajun ideas thrown in. Liked blackened - i was very dissappointed and mentioned it to the wait staff, they said that was the summer menu and would most likely stay that way.. Sad..sad..I love cajun food and thought I found my place; here in this great city. Hopefully they will return to the cajun theme for cooking. As it stands it like eating at an overpriced Olive Garden. With the its current menu with a handful of "cajun" specialities . You will not find an Acadian like myself darkening their door again.

I was born in New Orleans and have grown up with parents who cook incredibly well and exceptional cajun food. I went here with my parents and was pleasantly surprised by the flavors and quality of the food. With Portlanders definite quality food fixation this place hits the mark by incorporating fresh northwest ingredients and tradiitional spicy and rich cajun flavors. Great fried oysters! However, the promotion for outstanding beignets didn't hold up (we actually thought that they weren't very good at all). For dessert I would recommend whatever type of fresh sorbet is offered (the dessert chef is known for her sorbet creations with fresh fruit) we had pear and it was the best sorbet I have ever had! I also want to point out that we had great service!

I've eaten at ROUX a couple times, but not since last Summer. I'm on their email list and they were promoting a new Summer Burger, and being that I LOVE GOOD BURGERS, I went with a buddy last night to try it.

I absolutely could not believe how delicious it was! Ground sirloin with tons of garlic, white cheddar and bacon, and to top it off, a perfect slice of fried green tomato! The bun was just the right texture, and the bartender told me it was a rosemary roll from Grand Central. She, by the way, was also amazing and made our experience lots of fun. I think she said she was the bar manager. Cute blond woman.

I love the burgers at Slow Bar, Castagna, Driftwood Lounge and 23 Hoyt-- (okay, I get around) but this is at the top of them all.

The downside-- it's only available through the Summer (or I was told until local green tomatoes aren't around) on the main menu. The upside, it is $7.00 with greens and fries on the Happy Hour Menu, versus the $12 you pay during dinner.

If you are half the burger fan that I am, I recommend you give it a try next time you get the "urge."

I'm writing a review because I saw many negative reviews with regard to the service and wanted to share my positive dining experience.

We had a party of 10 about a month ago for 6pm on a Friday. We were seated immediately, drinks orders were taken and arrived as each group in our party arrived. The service was prompt and pleasant. There were no glitches in service throughout the evening. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive.

Our party ordered a variety of dishes and the opinions ranged from good to excellent (most being on the excellent end of the range). The dishes were creative, unique and well done.

I'm planning to eat at Roux again tonight.

Spent the weekend visiting from Seattle. Took husband here for his birthday. He had the pork tenderloin on a bed of gritcakes with goat cheese and I had the smoked lamb chops on mashed potatoes. We had gumbo for a starter and also ordered a side of red beans and rice. He loved his entree and the gritcakes were especially tasty. The smoky taste of the lamb was terrific but my dish was not hot enough, and especially with mashed potatoes being cold it was a big turn-off for me. The red beans and rice was nothing like what they serve up in New Orleans with the sausage and all - the beans were harder and the dish less soup-like, and they put shredded chicken or something in there. It was on the salty side without a lot of flavor. The gumbo I thought was pretty solid, however. Also, the waitress failed to tell us the starter specials of the day. I didn't even know that they had specials until halfway through our meal I heard her telling the table next to us about them. All in all, ok but next time we come back to Portland we'll try another restaurant. At least they had Abita there on draft.

I was delighted to find Roux on Citysearch and have been there three times. Food is fabulous. Atmosphere is awesome.Some of the service could be better. The first time I went, with a reservation, I asked for a booth and was flatly told "no". The last time I went, we made a reservation and again asked for a booth. The hostess told us "you are lucky to get a table at all" because they were busy. Then, my mate was having a cigarette fit and asked the bartender if they had any behing the bar. She could have just said no or asked one of the staff, but instead looked at him with scorn for smoking and was rude. Fortunately, the waiter found him one so we didn't have to leave before dessert. My opinion is, if you are going to a service oriented business for a service, if you can't have what you want, they could change their script so it doesn't sound so unaccomodating and that they are actually happy to have your business. The food was great that night, but my guests will never go back because of the hostess that told them we were lucky to be seated after making a reservation hours in advance. I'll go back, but not on a busy night as it's clear they are stressed out by a full house.
Word of caution: If you want a booth, you need to specifically request one or you will never get one. They won't even let you wait for one.

Cons: Parking, service

some had a bad time here, but don't listen because roux is really a phenomenal place. one reviewer stated they left before getting food, they ordered but didn't get their food: I wonder why they didn't stand up and track down their waiter rather than writing a negative review. small independent restaurants live and die by these reviews, and it is awful prissy to order food and then get up to leave when it doesn't arrive. we have visited roux countless times and found the food to be everything we heard it to be and the staff was helpful and beyond friendly and very competent at each moment on each visit. every business has an off-night, and communication about the late meals would have likely led to a meal comp and no negative review and so much better for the people, the staff, roux, portland, oregon, and on and on and on and on. go and support this local business who do great most all of thetime!

We dined there on Saturday night and if you want an early reservation you should have no problem getting in. We were delighted by the selection and service. The portions were just perfect, not to big or small. It allowed us to share an appetizer, side vegetable and desert and not leave uncomfortably full. Every Item we tried was a delight with its taste, aromas and visual appeal. We have dined at many Cajun restaurants including New Orleans. Although the food does not claim to be original Cajun recipes its renditions to their origins it unique and delicious!

Decent atmosphere and decor, where you can seclude yourself to a booth, or have partial visibility of other diners. Drinks were very slow in delivery, pricey, and tasted like an amateur mixed them. The duck confit doesn't seem like true confit at all, as it was relatively dry and seemed more like a duck leg browned in rendered fat, stored for the day, and warmed in the oven before being served. Couldn't detect the slightest bit of oyster in the stuffing. Cherry sauce was nice, but didn't make up for the entire dish. Hush puppies were non-descript, and the dipping sauce is a total mistake, tasting like some creamy balsamic concoction...couldn't tell??

The desserts looked fantastic, but I wasn't in the mood to give them a try.

If you want great creole that is worth the cost, I very much recommend Acadia.

Not sure why there were bad reviews about the service? We were there last Friday and the service was outstanding (and they were busy). Our waiter was very attentive and we felt like special guests! And the food - oh my - it was delicious! You all need to try the steak.....and the rabbit.....and the deserts.

This was my first experience at Roux and the food was fabulous. The service, however, was not just sub-parr; it was terrible. When you go to a place that gets such great reviews you expect to have an equally great experience as the other reviewers. This was absolutely not the case at this restaurant. My party of four was on time for our reservation but when we arrived we had to wait for the hostess arrive to greet us while we stood in front of the main entrance dodging waiters. After we were seated it took at least 30 minutes for our waiter to take our drink order. Another 20 minutes later we actually received our drinks. After 2 more interactions with our waiter, he still never asked us if we were ready to order although at this point it had been well over an hour. Eventually, one of us had to roust him to have our order taken. When the food began coming out, we got our oysters for the table and only two of us received our meals because the waiter forgot the rest of the order. At this point everyone was frustrated with all of this as well as not having had water refilled after the first five minutes we were there.

In short, the kitchen was great but the service was so awful I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone let alone eat there again.

I have been to Roux a couple of times--and while I enjoy the cuisine and the service is good, I will never go back there! Because it is too freakin' loud!! I remembered the second time what I didn' t like about it the first time--it had been awhile--was there with a group for my daughter's birthday, and gave up trying to shout across the table to communicate with diners who were not right next to me.
It really ruined a fun evening and the good food--and I am someone who goes to loud rock concerts and enjoys them. So it wasn't just noisy, but over the top loud.

It had been awhile since I'd been to Roux for dinner, so I was curious to see if it still held that same charm for me. I'd heard some murmers about high prices, but I have to say, it was worth every penny, and one of the best dinners for 2 I've had for a long time for under $100. We started out with a few of Roux's signature cocktails, and (our favorite) crawfish pie ,as well as a beet salad w/ greens,goat cheese and a zippy horseradish vinagrette.The real surprise came on the entree side- they had a selection of "hand-cut" steaks and we decided to go for the NY w/ a extra add on of crab; hollandaise came on the side and we opted for the twice baked potato w/tasso as our chosen side dish. Now, I've had plenty of steaks in town, from Bluehour to Henry Fords (sigh) to the Ringside, and this one is as good as any I've, except it was cheaper!! .It was perfectly cooked medium rare, with just enough fat on the side to make it the real deal. Great price and quality.We also had the Hunter chicken with wild mushrooms & tasso, and it was probably the best chicken I've ever had- perfectly cooked meat and the rich earthy mushrooms & delicious sauce- wow.
Delicious food, interesting wine & cocktail selection and a very competant wait staff (rare in this town) puts Roux back on the top of my list!!! Love those booths!

We booked the private dining room at Roux for my wife's birthday party - and we couldn't have been happier. The atmosphere of the room is incredibly cozy - warm lights, dark wood, pleasant jazz in the background - but the food was the most amazing part of the experience. We decided to order off the main menu of the restaurant instead of opting for a pre-fixed menu. All of our guest (30 of them!) raived about the food - and the best part was that everyone was able to order what they wanted. The servers were attentive, but you hardly noticed them at all. It was like hosting a dinner party at your house - except everyone ate what they wanted, drank what they wanted - and we didn't have to do the dishes.
If you have reason to celebrate something special in the future, you should defintely think about Roux! My wife has already booked my birthday party there.....I can't wait!

Our realtor gave us a gift certificate after moving to Portland from Chicago. We had heard great things from our neighbors and other friends. Things started well. The oysters were amazing and I don't really like oysters. But then the main dishes arrived. Everything tasted like burnt charchol which I think was supposed to be your famous roux. Desert was just OK. Thank God for the gift certificate, because I would have been very disappointed if I had to fork over my own money. It wasn't worth the $100+ we spent. Given that other people have had better experiences I would like to hope that the head chef was off for the night. I have no desire to go back.

We went here specifically because they were the 2006 Best Of for Bloody Marys and they did not disappoint. If you like BM's you must try theirs. I went with 3 other adults and everyone had great meals. The Eggs Benedict with fried tomato was amazing, as were the quiches. Really, very good food.

On a negative note it is not only not kid friendly, but it is kid unfriendly. We asked for a high chair for our 10 month old and it was dangerously wobbly. The screws were literally falling out of it. Repeated requests to the staff for help fixing it went unanswered so I used up using my car key to screw it together. Even while taking 5-10 minutes to do that not one staff-member asked if they could be of assistance. In this aspect they were quite disappointing and as such only earn 4/5 stars from me.

A friend and I had a wonderful breakfast at Roux this morning. I had the Dungeoness Crab Benedict and could easily go back tomorrow and chow down again. The eggs were perfectly poached, and there was a good about of crab meat, which made paying $14 for the breakfast just fine. The home fries were slightly cajuny and perfectly browned. I am excited to have a great place like this in my neighborhood, especially since there was no wait.
Service was excellent, but we did have to wave the server down to get our bill. The food came out really quickly and several people checked in w/us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves.
My ONLY complaint is that, without thinking to look at the price, I asked for green tea. My friend and I were shocked when the bill arrived, charging me $5 for some hot water and tea leaves. The tea was good, don't get me wrong, but really, 5 bucks? I could enough tea to last me a couple weeks for that price. If I had known I was going to spend $5 on a beverage, I would have ordered an alcoholic drink. Anyways, rant over.
This place is awesome, the sausage gravy is killer, and I seriously considered the asking the stranger sitting next to me for a bite of his fried chicken.
I'm excited to visit Roux again for dinner and imagine I won't be disappointed.

I'm a North Portland resident.

For the past two years, Acadia has been my favorite French-Creole restaurant, with Roux a close second. [disclaimer: I've never ventured south of Fremont to try similarly themed restaurants, but I've eaten several meals in New Orleans and am a big Emeril TV fan.]

Tonight that changed.

I've always known the great quality of the food available. Tonight the level of service pushed it over the top.

When one dines alone at the south end of the bar, one has an unfettered view of the staff.

Whether is is salads, bar menu (oysters on the half shell like no other, crawfish pie that makes you rethink the whole crawfish thing), dinners (tonight was oven-roasted chicken with garlic potatoes and vegetable -- a favorite for this foodie) or dessert (although I didn't order a dessert, I received a couple of small chocolate shortbreads that amazed me) -- you cannot go wrong with the food.

On the drinks side, I have tried one cucumber sort of martini (pretty nice), but am basically a wine guy. The pinot is Willamette Vineyards -- acceptable. I'd be more excited with a Tori Mor pinot at the $10/glass price.

But tonight the service was outstanding. I've always had good personal service, but I hadn't noticed the attention to detail that occurs that is not directly diner-related. A server preparing after-dinner espressos who not only warms the cups prior to pouring the coffee, but smelled the cream before pouring it into the creamer. A bartender who holds every glass up to the bright northern window and then polishes all smudges that might be detected. A server not responsible for the bar noticing an empty plate and quietly removing it from me.

Excellent food has always been my Roux experience. Excellent service tonight sealed the deal.

Roux is a fabulous well-kept Portland secret... I love it! This my special occasion, can't get enough, amazing food place. It's kind of spendy, I love the oysters and the Rabbit and it's hard to get out of there under $50/head. The drinks are fabulous - the "Big Easy" is impossible to beat.

Make reservations....although a well kept secret in an up and coming neighborhood, Roux's getting a great name for itself and is more crowded all the time!

We attempted to eat brunch at Roux today, and failed, miserably. In the time between the two of us placing our order and our decision to simply walk out, we watched several neighboring tables arrive, order, receive their food, and finish eating. We had no explanation from the server as to why our orders were taking so long to arrive, but more than 45 minutes later with no food in sight, our server assured us that our food was "just being plated."

Another 15 minutes after that, still without food, an explanation, or even an apology, we put five dollars on the table to pay for our coffee and left.

The coffee was good, but I see no reason to return to Roux, despite the positive things I've heard about their food. This was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in Portland, and not one I care to risk repeating.

(OK, maybe it's not fair to refer to it as a "dining" experience, since we never actually received our food, but that's sort of the point, isn't it?)

This was my first dinner at Roux last night. For a Thursday night 6:30, it wasn't busy at all. In general the food was ok. I ordered the hush puppies: 6 nice sized puppies. Dark golden brown in color and cooked to perfection. It didn't have much of a jalapeno flavor. I tried it first without the dipping sauce, but the remaining 5 had to be eaten with the sauce to give it a more well rounded flavor. The Crawfish pie that the server recommended was very good. We found that the crust was a bit bland and dry, but it worked fine with the filling. I had the jambalaya which had zero chorizo, two small pieces of duck, and 3 shrimp. And the portion was very, very small for an entree. My bf had the pork chop with oyster stuffing. The pork was over cooked just a bit, but the stuffing was good. We ordered three sides as well: whipped potatoes (which were mashed, not whipped), collard greens (slightly undercooked and the pieces were huge!), beets and turnips (no complaints there, shock!). For dessert, we had the Chocolate Nightcap and the Almond Cake. The chocolate "torte", if you will, was way too rich. The white chocolate coating on top was too thick. It looked like it had been frozen and pulled out just long enough to be served. My fork made a loud "clunk" when i tried to break into it at the first bite. I had imagined that it was going to be a chocolate espresso cake of sorts. But the espresso part was a shot with ice cream in it. The Almond Cake on the other had was pretty good. The ice cream portion was a little heavy on the almond extract flavoring. But overall the sour cherries and the cake and the ice cream was a nice balance to the whole dish. I can't really complain about the service. Our server was always at the ready, but not standing over us the whole night either. As it got later, the noise level increased. Not a great place for quiet and romantic. And the price was moderately expensive for two people, after two beers, two glasses of wine and a cup of coffee.

Second time to ROUX last Saturday, didn't have reservations, and figured we'd have to wait a bit (our last visit we had to sit at the bar for about 10 minutes before being seated). The hosts (one girl, one guy) took our names and had us seated in one of the cozy booths five minutes later.Our server, Jen, was incredible. She was always available when we needed something, and had us laughing the whole night. We ordered a boiled crawfish appetizer and it was really fun and unique. They brought a tray that consisted of crawfish, roasted garlic, lemon, boiled potatoes and mushrooms. She showed us how to peel the first one, and after a little practice, we had it down. Something I'd normally not order, but fun for 4 people to share, and really delicious (nice detail, she brought hot rags to wipe up with).We weren't extremely hungry, so opted to share a couple appetizers and entrees.The Muffuletta Salad (sp?) was amazing, and huge (enough for four). Despite having meats and cheeses, it was very refreshing with a kind of lemon-herb dressing. We also had, at Jen's rec. the Crawfish pie. OMG! Spicy, creamy, and a perfect pie crust-- could have had 2. We ordered a Pork Chop with oyster dressing and Roasted Rabbit (apparently a signature dish). Again, OMG! The carrots on that dish could not have been better. Of the two dishes, we cleaned that plate for sure. We only ordered cocktails because the bar list looked too good, and each was very unique. I'm a traditionalist, and had the less adventurous Sazerac-- yum. Did notice on the list that they have 1/2 priced wine on Monday, and my boyfriend and I are already planning when we could come back to take advantage of that. Overall, we were so pleased with our return trip to ROUX. From our nice greating at the door, to Jen's service, (oh yeah, forgot about the great dessert that we really enjoyed-- lemon Chibouze sp?) to the food and to the fact that we got a booth, we had an exceptional time! We'll be back!

Something I'd normally not order, but fun for 4 people to share, and really delicious (nice detail, she brought hot rags to wipe up with).We weren't extremely hungry, so opted to share a couple appetizers and entrees.The Muffuletta Salad (sp?) was amazing, and huge (enough for four). Despite having meats and cheeses, it was very refreshing with a kind of lemon-herb dressing. We also had, at Jen's rec. the Crawfish pie. OMG! Spicy, creamy, and a perfect pie crust-- could have had 2. We ordered a Pork Chop with oyster dressing and Roasted Rabbit (apparently a signature dish). Again, OMG! The carrots on that dish could not have been better. Of the two dishes, we cleaned that plate for sure. We only ordered cocktails because the bar list looked too good, and each was very unique. I'm a traditionalist, and had the less adventurous Sazerac-- yum. Did notice on the list that they have 1/2 priced wine on Monday, and my boyfriend and I are already planning when we could come back to take advantage of that. Overall, we were so pleased with our return trip to ROUX. From our nice greating at the door, to Jen's service, (oh yeah, forgot about the great dessert that we really enjoyed-- lemon Chibouze sp?) to the food and to the fact that we got a booth, we had an exceptional time! We'll be back!

Pros: Great, non-Portland Service, Drinks, Crawfish Pie!

Cons: It wasn't 1/2 priced wine Monday!

Just went to ROUX for the first time last weekend. Overall, it was a great experience. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The food was really terrific. Hushpuppies came in a delicious sauce and the crawfish pie was wonderful. The salads were very generously sized. The desserts (including the special sundae and lemon cake) were really terrific. The service was spotty - when we had our waiter's attention, he was extremely helpful. But when we didn't, he was somewhat hard to find. It was a busy night and in the end, didn't impact our nice time.

We wanted to give the new Chef from New Orleans some time before we dined at ROUX again - but the anticipation was killing us - so we stopped in over the weekend. Even in the short time he has been there, you can taste the difference! The Trout dish we tried was INCREDIBLE - light and tasty, and the Jambalaya was to die for! If you liked ROUX before - you're going to love it now! As always - the wait staff truly made you feel like a welcomed guest. They are always there to make sure your experience is delightful. This still remains the jewel in North Portland!

The food is not ordinary, it can restore you to life at the end of a soul-wearingly bad day. Been enchanted with Roux each time I've been there for dinner. This time, decided to take a group of friends and family to brunch, our server was sullen, unresponsive, unenthusiastic, and at times, just rude. We asked for two orders or beignets, she told us there were three to an order. When they came two to an order, she said, I don't work brunch, only dinner, and they give three at dinner. NO apology, no attempt to make the number closer to what we were expecting. Two of us having coffee had to ask for refills throughout the meal, not once was their an anticipated warm up. When another asked if she thought the trout hash would be as good as the crawfish omelette, she fell silent, and GAVE NO RESPONSE, just ignored it completely. In fact, this happened often throughout the meal, we would ask a question, she wouldn't answer, just drift away, and we'd all lean and ask each other, Did she hear that? Is she going to get us boxes? etc. Bewildering.
The service in the past has been beyond exemplary, it has been impeccable, perfect service, warm and attentive, not stuffy, just genuine and you feel well taken care of. The food is too good, and our past experiences too positive to be too put off from ever coming again, but we are on our guard.

After dinner when we walked out, my wife and I asked each other the usual "What did you think...?" We had more or less the same experience: Great food & drink, excellent service by our server Christopher, enjoyed it and they knew it was our first time and I think they made extra effort to get us into a booth instead of one of the regular tables - it's not a quiet place(they would do well to throw some drapery on the walls to absorb sound). It was a very good experience overall; we?re not overly-demanding people. On the positive were the entrees we did have - an outstanding rabbit, a beautiful pork-stew sort of thing and a killer duck confit: all of them were just absolutely excellent. Very tasty, unpretentious and good portions. What they do, they do very well - which is why I would recommend the experience. Try the NO Sazerac. However, we likely won't be back, if only due to the limited menu and that there are just too many other restaurants in town with greater menus. You really should be wowed by a place like this, since they are so intently focused on a specific cuisine - in this case New Orleans Creole ca. 1880. This menu is very limited and the sides were just plain lame, even though they are certainly standard-issue Creole. There should unquestionably be an etouffee and a bouillabaisse - ever-present on the menu. The sides should include more vegetable options. These are no-brainers. For the price-level, I'd just expect a little more extent of menu. I always say that a restaurant is defined by the details. One should just see a broader scope of menu. They could easily add 3 or 4 more entree items and sides without troubling themselves. It's just disappointing that the menu is so limited, because I would certainly go back for more options. Dessert was OK not great. Service was excellent.

Cons: Scope of Menu, Average Desserts, Poor Sides, Noise

It was time for my husband and I to try a new neighborhood restaurant, and I had heard from friends that Roux was terrific. The reviews on City Search solidified that, so I made reservations.
The space is great, although it can get a bit loud. Our server (Rebecca?) couldn't have been sweeter and was just attentive enough. Everything on the menu looked great, so it was hard for us to decide, but we started with the Oysters Rockefeller, which was delicious (they house-smoke their bacon, and it shows.) My husband had the flat iron steak, which he really enjoyed, in part because of the arugula salad and stuffed baked potato (which included horseradish, much to our delight!) I'm very picky about my protein and how it's prepared, but I enjoyed every bite of my Cassoulet. I'm always happy to let other people cook duck for me! The andouille in the beans was perfect, too.
After all of our wonderful food, we were offered dessert, which we had no business ordering. Regardless, when I'm offered various flavors of house-made ice cream, I can't resist. We shared a single scoop of their gingerbread ice cream, which I thought was to die for, but it left my husband wanting it more ginger-y than bread-y.
Other reviewers have been disappointed in their wine list. Their by-the-glass selections were meager to be sure, but to me, their wine list looked great (I'm in the wine and beer business, so I'd like to think I know what to look for.) Their beer selection looked solid (face it, you don't go to a higher-end restaurant for their beer selection, unless it's Higgin's), but their cocktails are really where it's at. My husband's Sazerac was sufficiently flavorful and strong, and my champagne cocktail was inspirational! Fresh ginger combined with pear brandy, added to sparkling wine? sI'm already cheming how to make it at home.
If you're looking to drop some dough on a nice dinner, I highly recommend Roux. It?s definitely in my top 5 nice Portland restaurants.

Nice place in NoPo- Love the bar. I highly recommend trying one of their fun drinks! Great food too! I couldn't stop eating my Pork & Beans (not what it sounds like). It was cooked perfectly-Friendly staff and great atmosphere.

Roux is consistently good. I've been in for happy hour at the bar, the bartenders have always been knowledgeable and sweet, the drinks great, and the food suspiciously cheap. Brunch is also great, I recommend pastries and any fish/seafood. The servers are also excited about Roux and work very hard.
On a recent brunch visit, we were seated next to the most annoying couple in Portland. The man wore a dirty baseball cap and said "MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM" so many times I was losing my appetite, and he kept feeding his date gigantic bites of his food which was creamy and was getting all over the place. And he was hitting on the server, who was gracious beyond belief.
I know Roux can not control this, I wish they could but maybe next time I will go earlier.

I am blown away that a restaurant owner would take the time to answer his reviews. I myself wrote two letters to two proprietors in PDX and they blew me off totally. This kind of concern reflects Roux's approach. While busy, the waitress was extremely pleasant and made good recommendations and explained things that needed explaining. The food was very good--I liked the pork and beans and the sausage combination. I regret sharing it with my dining partner as he didn't finish it. Soup was good but a little too rich for me personally because of a lot of butter on top. Only mistake was going nearby for dessert to a popular but mediocre dessert joint.

We came here for my birthday dinner. Had been wanting to try it ever since it arrived but never had the chance. We have a 17 month old and it was clear that this place may not be a good choice for our son or the patrons. But we decided to do an early dinner to spare everyone. I alerted the hostess when I made the reservation that we had a wee one with us, and we were seated in a booth quite a distance in the back. No problem with that. Made it easier for us to relax knowing that our son wasn't within an ear shot to everyone.

Chevonne gave us great reccomendations and didn't pressure us at all and we took our time ordering. She gave us all the necessary items when dining with a toddler. Promtly brought out our requested paper cup full of ice, extra spoons and napkins.

Don't even get me started on the food. We had flat iron steak, pork and beans and I had the albacore. AMAZING. Honestly the best dinner I have had...and I've eaten at Higgins. Love this stuff! The whipped potato side was like a dessert it was so good!

Will come back when I have saved up a bit. Sad to say it is so expensive for our budget but a nice "special occasion" place.

Haven't tried the deli. Hope to soon.

are roux kidding me.....this place is fantastic!

Some friends invited us out to celebrate a birthday, we had reservations for four at 630p on 9/23.

Parking, as in most downtown and neighborhood locations was expected, a bit crowded.
Once we arrived we were attended to promptly and seated.
The drink selections were fun and enticing. The waiter made sure all our questions were answered and we had some relaxing dialogue with him on his preferences and recommendations.
The drinks arrived and we never felt pressured to order and move along with the process, although the waiter did continue to check with us to make sure we're comfortable or if we had questions.
Our party of four ordered a diverse range of items from the menu so we all enjoyed sampling from each others plates. Here is a slight break-down of what we all ordered and our rating:
1. Oysters-Gratinee De Bienville: expected, nothing outstanding or surprising
2. Seasonal Soup-Tomato based Corn Chowder: Vegan, I loved it! Bursting with flavor but light enough to not feel stuffed afterwards
3. Farm Fresh Greens: The cane vinaigrette was the perfect sweetness to the crisp salad and herbs
4. Hush Puppies: Having grown-up in the south I was interested in trying their variation of the hush puppies. I was pleased with the fullness of the puppies, but what took this over the top was the unique green tomato & jalapeno sauce. It added the right amount of spice to compliment the fried corn.
5. House Sausage: A trio of sausages, the flavor & smell was terrific.
6. Fried Green Tomatoes: I had honestly never had fried green tomatoes before and enjoyed the breading they were made in. Great, melt in your mouth flavor.
7. Grilled Albacore: Fantastic.
8. Blackened Salmon: The sauce made the salmon flavors really stand out
9. Flat Iron Steak: Potato was amazing. The steak was prepared cajun and medium rare with outstanding flavor.
Overall: HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!
