I used this place on a fairly regular basis for their butcher shop. I usually get pheasants, ducks, and game hens here. It is a good source for different kinds of poultry. It is not fresh, it is frozen, but you can get it on short notice and I have found the quality far above what I have gotten from Whole Foods and New Seasons and the price is similar. The customer service is not great, but descent for a butcher shop. I ate in the restaurant over a year ago and had the Wygu steak. I am sort of a beef snob. I don??t eat steak very often because nothing seems to taste as good and my grandfather the rancher??s beef. The steak was good, cooked to the correct temp and not overly seasoned. It was a little pricey for what you are getting. I tend to feel the same about the steaks in the butcher shop although my husband loves them and gets them often.

We stumbled upon Laurelhurst Market and tried ou t the brisket and high quality sides. Very sophisticated deli/sandwich shop to say the least.

First of all, I think this place is overrated. When we arrived the hostess gave us a "cool" welcome. She did not seem friendly or welcoming at all. Anyway - we got there at about 5:10 or so (they open at 5:00 p.m.) There were a few

This restaurant is not the rave that people give it. I went with my wife, we go out every other week as a date night and pick a place throughout the PDX area. Here
I had the Grilled Niman Prime Ribeye -- Blue Cheese Butter, Fried Sweet Onion Rings. This was ruined by the butter and blue cheese. These are supposed to be a compliment to a great cut, but instead a taste bud killer. Wife had Steak and Arugula Salad and that was actually a very tasty meal. I also ordered the fries, AKA salt lick, come on really?? Our server asked how are meals were at the beginning of our meal but not at the end, wonder why? My meal was edible but not fantastic, was not worth the $33. We wont return and I cannot recommend the place as a "Must GO!". Ruths Chris has a better tasting cut of meat.

I have a thing for cured meats. OK, pretty much any meats. So I have wanted to go for dinner at Laurelhurst Market for eons. Sight unseen, I convinced 3 girlfriends to meet me for dinner after work.

When I arrived, one of my girlfriends was there and had been directed to the bar. I found out later this was because (the hostess said) we could not be seated until our whole party arrived. (Where am I, Apizza Scholls?) We ordered drinks at the bar, and there were only 2 other tables full in the restaurant, not sure why she refused to seat us?

The bartender was kind enough but used a jigger to pour and since I like martinis I downed 3 of the worlds smallest cocktails, and our 4th gal pal still had not arrived.

The restaurant was still not too busy, but we were starving, so I asked the hostess if we could be seated.
She hesitantly agreed, and said we should close out our bar tab. (Yeah, I asked, it can't be transfered to the table).

Then came the absolutely amazing food. Chacutarie plate had 5-6 different meats to try, grilled romaine salad with romanesco sauce was perfection, mussels and fries were top notch, as were bites from my friend's plates, the salmon and brisket. Couldn't imagine better executed food.

But the service! They took away our appetizer plates and forks 3-4 times, even when we protested that they were still being used.

Please, Laurelhurst Market, find a front of the house that is worthy of this excellent food!!!

Pros: amazing food, nice space

Cons: bartender uses a jigger, hostess plans world domination

I was taken there (first visit) by my son and his wife for my birthday dinner and I couldn't have been happier. We arrived about 6:30 and were seated immediately, and the place filled up soon after. The menu was quite interesting just to read, making it hard to choose. Liver pate starter was wonderful, and my pork hock was melt-in-the-mouth tender and flavorful. The amount of the accompanying beans and rapini were just right, the emphasis was on quality, not quantity. Our waitress was attentive buy not intrusive. All in all, a fine experience.

Seriously the best steak I have ever eaten. The flavor was sinfully good, the texture was like warm butter, and the presentation was really nice. I had the ??steak frites? and it was a good price for the quality of the dinner. Don??t miss the brussels sprout. I could have savored them all night! Wish the bread had been included in the price, but you can??t win them all.

We arrived on a Friday night at 7pm and were seated within minutes. The restaurant is lively and the menu is predominantley pork - their speciality. There is also a butcher shop. After receving our drinks, our server came over with a bowl of mussels with pomme frites on top and said "the kitchen wanted to send this to you". We asked why and she said she had no idea. My boyfriend has the brisket (reccomended by the host) and in his words "This is the best brisket I have ever had". The texture was amazing. The service was great, the food was spectacular and worth the $19-24 entree price. Splurge for the side of mac and cheese - you will be glad you did!

the mussels were succulant and plenty. I prefer the frites on the side, since it is ackward to have to dig through the heap of frites to get to the mussels.
The Steak Tartar was ecellent, the taste of the meat was not overpowered by seasoning.
We had hoped that the Steak Frites would be the bavette cut, but my partner was well satisfied with the cut du jour, top sirloin.
Service was attentive and non intrusive.
Maybe this was not intentional, but I really liked that the water was not ice cold but had a pleasant room temperature.
