We had a dinner there last night with my 5 and almost 7 year old boys. It was such a nice surprise that the kids could run outside to the fountains to play, while we were waiting for the food. We had a great view to see what they are

Wanted a nice dinner not too far from home and chose Mingo. As usual, we had a great dining experience. We have been there with and without our 8 year old, and we have always been taken care of. Started out the night with a "Dare to be

The food and service is fabulous. Try the shrimp & bread appetizer, caesar salad, halibut with mushroom sauce or the polenta with mushroom sauce. Divine. Great wines at reasonable costs. LOVE IT!

My wife & I are constantly looking for a good Italian resaurant. We are from the East Coast & the ethnic food are a little different there. While we were in D/T Beaverton I pulled out my "Smart Phone", pulled up an "app" that is "Have 2 Eat" & started scrolling thru to find someplace that we hadn't been to yet. When I got to Mingo West & read all of the other reviews I thought that no restaurant could be that good. So, that night we decided to give it a try. Guess what? It was everything they all said it was and more. The food & service are well worth the prices. Our server Susan was an absolute delight. We are going to put Mingo on our "short list" of regular restaurants to visit. It is the BEST Italian restaurant in Oregon.

Creative menu and wine list. Nice setting most of the time. Don't let the building repairs stop you from coming. Very easy parking.

Cons: none, but we do take it for granted at times.

Took my wife here for her birthday. My Halibut with Corn Salsa was outstanding. My wife had the pulled beef and penne which was OK for a beef eater but not to my liking. She really likes fish better so should not have ordered it. Bread was excellent, salad was OK with only lettuce and a dressing, needs other vegetables, and the service was excellent. When the restaurant got full it was very noisy. They have added curtains between tables which we liked, but they need an accoustics engineer to fix the noise. With 3 tables of 6 or 8 in the middle, the place was really noisy and could hardly carry on a conversation. The food was excellent, and too full to try dessert. Will return in the Summer time when we can eat outside.

I reside on Maui and frequent Portland as often as I can. I never miss the opportunity to spend an evening at Mingo's. I am always greeted as though I were family; the staff extend themselves with such warmth and hospitality. I will say a special Thank You to Mat, Michael and Monica for the special attention you always show me. I always know I will be treated to a special meal no matter which dishes I choose. Every meal that I have eaten there has been excellent. I have also attended their "Cooking Class", which was a gift to me from my son and it turned out to be the best birthday gift ever. Keep up the good work.

I ate here with my girlfriend recently and had a great dinner. Our service was great and casual, and the food was hearty and delicious. The wine list is extensive and I was expertly guided by the owner himself. We will be back!

Pros: outdoor dinning

Cons: no canolis

While traveling, I could not wait to get back to the delicious food served at Mingo! Just like the restaurants in Europe, Mingo is friendly with a staff who has been working together since it opened. Because it is locally owned, there is a feeling that everyone is there just for you. The food is deliciously delightful, and I love the time I spend at Mingo!

Mingo is a great restaurant that I have been going to for years. It has the best pizza. In fact, I won't get pizza anywhere else. Their dishes are fresh, simple, local and organic whenever possible. The atmoshere is hip, fun, yet unpretentious.
You can tell the staff and owner really care about what they do and take pride in making Mingo what it is: a place for people who really want to partake in the joy of food, wine and friends.
The place has soul and integrity - you can't find that too often

Mingo has been my family and business spot for year. BUT as of late, closing for lunch, letting go of the pastry chef, letting go of long time chef for a family member who doesnt even come close to the previous chef. The food is so inconsistant my wallet can't take the gamble anymore. Its embarassing to take clients in. Mingo is on a fast downward spiral. What is going on? Looks like someone is shooting for a permanent vacatioin. We'll miss you mingo and all the staff who have been like family.

Wants to appear Neighborhood chef-run restaurant, aspires to be priced and delivered like a first class dinner house. Failed at both.
Started with a Mingo Salad. Asked for the Romaine to be chopped. "They won't do that". Have you ever been told that ? Even in Manhattan they will acommodate that request. C'mon folks. And for $9.00. That's not on the neighborhood price scale.
Entre'- a simple pasta which was the first dish I have asked for a do-over on in thirty years. I'll eat darn near anything. Must have had a tablespoon of salt. "Maybe they accidentally salted twice" the server offered. Second effort was fine. Simple pasta was $19.00. Again, not a neighborhood price scale.
Server waa knowledgeable and helpful, but no followup by chef or manager for a pretty obvious mistake.

Sad and disappointing. Many meals at the N.W. namesake, and always well done. This cousin or whatever it is needs to realize that just because Beaverton is so dominated by chains of mediocre food, folks still want, value, seek and will pay for well done efforts. Hope for better!

Cons: Priced like the Pearl, but lacking control and care

We love Mingo in Beaverton for lots of reasons (comfortable, warm space ... great patio in the summer ... really nice staff ... always good food). In my opinion, they make the best pizza in town. My favorite Mingo pizza is made with heirloom tomatoes, a small amount of cheese and crispy prosciutto. The crust is thin and crisp ... always cooked to perfection. They only make this pizza when heirloom tomatoes are in season so we go to Mingo as often as possible during that time of year. They do make excellent "other" kinds of pizzas all year long! My husband's two favorite dishes at Mingo are their fresh halibut (when in season) and their sugo pasta.

Mingo is at it's best when it keeps true to it vision of simple Italian food -- house infused olive oil with a perfect chunk of bread, a trio of rice croquettes with just a touch of red sauce and a sprig of Italian parsley, a glass of wine and a little plate with 2 slices of perfect cheese and a sliced apple, tomato soup, a sublime cream of garlic soup, a perfect burger with a cold Italian lager, grilled polenta drizzled with olive oil, and on and on with any number of plated marvels. The lovely bartender, Monica, is kind, attentive, knowledgeable and makes beautiful cocktails, whether she is mixing the perfect Manhattan or one of her own design with fresh juices, or making a very knowing wine suggestion, it is not just a drink but an extraordinarily civilized end to the day. All these little wonders make this the greatest train stop in Oregon. I do not just enjoy Mingo, Mingo sustains my faith in the human experience.

This is one of the best happy hours in the area. Monica is the bartender and always suggests the best wines to sample. She's attentive, without being intrusive. In fact, all of the wait staff is exceptional. The food is delicious and always fresh. The dishes are very creative and they use local ingredients whenever possible. This is one of my favorite places to meet friends after work or impress a first date.

This is a gem of a spot...small, stylish interior, looking out onto the fountain area at the Round in Beaverton. It's right on the Max line with a parking garage just across the way for nights there's overflow in the parking lot. In summer, they open the "garage" style doors onto the plaza, adding to the ambiance. We've eaten lunch and dinner several times here over the last five years (although I believe lunch has been deleted recently due to everyone's belt tightening). Food shouldn't have to be complicated to make for a successful dining experience and here, it comes from a kitchen where people seem to really love to cook for others. I grew up in the restaurant business and know how difficult it is to get it right...nothing like trying to make droves of hungry people happy, night after night. You do it because you love it, and it shows with the partners and wait staff. And I hate to mention it because they're hard enough to get into as it is but they host very convivial winemaker dinners where you get to meet the Italian maker of the wines served during the evening meal. It's a closed door affair - reservations required - and is just a small group of about 25 people making new friends, enjoying a nice meal and getting to know Italian wines. Inquire about it next time you go.

Pros: Nice size servings, yummy food (not too heavy pastas), authentic contemporary Italian

Cons: A little noisy in the winter evenings, when the place is jumpin'.

Love this place, amazing food featuring northwest seasonal ingredients. I found my favorate bottle of barossa wine here, and a great place for a date. Just make sure you get a reservation on the weekends and if you dont just have a drink at the bar next door...again love it!!!!!!!!!

This is okay Italian. I haven't had anything on the menu yet that wowed me. The prices seem a little bit high. This restaurant only has evening hours. The place is clean and service is very good.

I have lived in San Francisco, New York and Paris and Mingo's in Beaverton is one of my favorite places to dine. The food is always hot and expertly prepared. The staff is pleasant and friendly and will gladly prepare dishes the way you may prefer them. Try the Sugo which takes 12 hours to prepare or, if luck is on your side, the seafood pasta in lemon horseradish sauce it epic. The wine list can be expensive, but if you ask for help a less expensive alternative is always recommended and never never sneered at. It is just one of the happiest experiences on earth. Now go!

If you don't like this place, you probably belong at the olive garden. I understand that the portions are small, but you should probably grow up and understand that to eat quality food, you will end up spending more money than usual. For two people we spent about 79 bucks, for appetizers, salads, entrees and cheese course. I expect to pay that much for quality a dinner of this caliber. I know it is kind of hard to park there, but think about this, it is ON the max line, do I even need to explain anymore? The food is fresh, the proteins are from LOCAL farms, which surpass most other meats. If you think that $79 is spending too much money on a dinner, you probably don't understand the work or cost that goes into making a new special everyday, and getting the quality of ingredients that they obtain. This might be the one of the only worthwhile places in Beaverton.

I have always enjoyed cafe mingo. The food is wonderful and the small and intimate atmosphere is charming. The owner and host can sometimes be quite snobby, but overall, the experience is very nice. I also love the addition of Bar Mingo next door. It is a great place to grab a drink and relax with wonderful small plate food. Overall I would have to say that dining at Mingo is very nice and Bar Mingo is great too, and serves its purpose quite well. Cafe Mingo could definitely work on its pasta, there is better pasta in Portland, and for an Italian cafe, that would seem key, but the overall menu and items are great. I say go and enjoy.

Best Italian around town. Especially LOVE the vegetarian pizza. Great location with ample parking. They have an extra large menu selection, reasonable prices and very short waiting period. Great wine selection, and reasonably priced.

I am writing because after a recent visit to Mingo in beaverton ( I rarely eat in the burbs) I checked city search for the website and noticed the last review was negative. I don't eat out too often, but this place was perfect. The service was really friendly, professional but casual. And the food was really approachable and really good. I was impressed with my rigatoni dish with onion ragu, and their version of a ceasar salad called the mingo was even better than its inspiration. Yeah, parking wasn't perfect but it's better than downtown. The only downfall is that they close slightly early for my taste. I will certainly be back, even if it's in Beaverton.

if you're lucky you can get a parking space before your next birthday. Is it "cool" to serve Huge plates with Little bit of food? I practically had the dish thrown on the table, and the waiter was really brusque. I've been there Once, and i shall not be returning.

Six of us went to Mingo's last night and all of us were delighted with the service and quality of food. The atmosphere and just everything about the restaurant was perfect. All of us are in the Restaurant industry as we manage private clubs and in reading some of the past postings, I wonder if they went to the same restaurant as we did. Granted, the place was not packed, but did have a fair amount of guests and we could not have been more pleased. As to the picing, I will say that it is fair in todays market and for the quality of food and service.

Some family and I ate at Mingo last night for the first time. 6 out of 7 meals were absolutely fantastic. Very authentic dishes. The pasta dishes were very good, the chicken dishes were excellent and they came with fetuccini mashed potatoes that were mouthwatering. They have little bread twigs at the bar that are really good. The decor was nice. I've read questionable reviews about the service, but we all thought it was actually great. The dinner was a little expensive and it took awhile to get the food, but it was well worth the money and wait for such original and delicious meals. Overall it provided a very nice experience for our family.

At the time we made reservations for 6 people at Mingo's for 3:30 pm, we were told that if we wanted to stay after 6 p.m. we would have to order from the main menu. Upon arriving at Mingo's we were told every few minutes that we could not remain after 5:30. It became a joke. Here's comes the waiter again to remind us we must leave at 5:30. We were ordering from the bar menu as well as the main dinner menu. We had ordered three bottles of champaign which the waiter took upon himself to bring another set of glasses and pour before we had finished the second bottle. We all had two glasses of champaign in front of us. Never seen that before! We had also ordered three complete dinners to go plus dessert, which they brought before 5: 30pm. We are all excutives and were celebrating the birthday of the President ond CEO of a Fortune 500 Company. How embrassing. The food was good but the service was laughable.

As a culinary enthusiast, Mingo is the supreme example of fine dining forced into a suburban environment. Spawned from Cafe Mingo in NW Portland, this restaurant cuts no corners when it comes to authenticity, ambiance, and excellence. I first dined at Mingo when they had been open for barely a month. The food was amazing but the service was shaky. Although it was probably due to the hype and newness of it all.

In every time since then, the service has been knowledgeable, engaging and genuine. Not only could Mingo survive on their menu alone, they choose to have amazing food with warm and professional staff.

This is "THE" place for patrons looking for a downtown experience just around the corner. They have a unique, fabulous wine selection, great seasonal entrees and a rustic Italian approach that gives any Portland Restaurant a run for their money. --HANDS DOWN!

Thanks Mingo :o)

Mingos has great italian cuisine. The happy hour is very nice and gives you the opportunity to taste some of the signature dishes in a smaller portion. The food is wonderful. The suga pasta chinati beef pasta dish is the best. I have made this at home and my guests love it. The salads are very refreshing. The patio in summer is very welcoming and relaxing. The staff is very attentive. The service is great. The bartenders are very helpful with ordering just teh perfect drink. Mingos has great classes and special events. The wine selection is very nice. Best place to eat in Beaverton!

When we want a great meal, or are celebrating someone's birthday, we go to Mingo in Beaverton. I love the Ravioli. The Ravioli changes nightly. My favorite is carmelized onion ravioli with a light cream sauce. The service is great and there is a good wine list. We like the atmosphere, the service and the food. We live in Beaverton and it is nice that we do not have to go to Portland anymore to get good Italian.

I had been to th original Cafe Mingo a few times, and although I liked it, it's small size kept me from being a regular. Mingo is the answer! I completely forgot it even existed until an out of town friend asked for a recommendation for Italian in Beaverton. I went to Mingo with him, and now I feel stupid for waiting so long to go! Absolutely great food and very friendly service. I will be back again and again.

After reading other reviews, I see I am not the only one with this complaint. I spent an enjoyable evening here with friends. The service and atmosphere were fine, nothing special. I ordered risotto with beet greens and flank steak. The steak was great, but the risotto was ruined with too much salt, and pepper also. The seven-layer cake was a good choice for dessert. While waiting to be seated, we noticed the strong odor of industrial kitchen cleansers being circulated into the bar area by the ventilation system, which was unpleasant.

I recently discovered Mingo while I was visiting from NYC where I write a food blog! I have to say when my friends said we were going to the burbs for high-end italian I was doubtful! Much to my joy it was real italian! I travel to Italy alot! This is it! Matt choose the perfect wine to compliment our meal. The food was outstanding. The fish, the flavors, the seasonal menu, the attention, I couldnt get enough. In the land of chain restaurants and strip malls this is unheard of. I didnt understand why they opened in soccer mom hell! Then I asked, the answer was to bring real food to the people! Simple as that! 'Simple ItalianFood!' The owner Michael T. was extremely charming and knowledgeable and the Chef was actually working side byside with his cooks on the line then swung by our table cause he is a fellow New Yorker. We felt like family. Thank you Michael and MIchael!
I had to laugh at some of these reviews. Semolina Gnocchi vs. Potato gnocchi, if you dont know what your ordering ask! The staff is extremely knowlegeable. Thank you Matt! Real San Daniele prosciutto vs. ham... and I could go on, its the New Yorker in me!
It was very busy and everything was very cool and calm! I just want to thank Mingo for being Mingo! It takes alot to open a place of such class in the land of Sysco supplied troughs!

My wife and I are regulars here. We sort of stumbled upon it when taking the MAX back home one evening when we first moved here from Ohio. We have yet to be disappointed by any of the dinner choices we/ve had in the last year and a half. There's always something vegetarian on the menu, and often one of the daily specials, for those who want that choice. The menu changes with the seasons and is always a fun place to go. The staff is always glad to see you, whether it's your first or 100th time. One of last summer's sausage & pasta dishes was especially memorable. There were at least six distinct tastes, and they were all there in the right proportions. Once in a while, some of the sauces can be a little heavy, but overall this place gets a 10 from me! Extra bonus points for being on the MAX line!.

this restaurant looks like a way-cool trendy place to dine in up and coming beaverton. and, while the environment is super hot, the food is not. it took us a while to get seated because we made the mistake of not having a reservation. wine selection was good and our bartender was knowledgeable and effective. i had the mingo salad to start, which i felt had too much dressing. i tried the pizza with prosciutto and arugula and it was like eating a salt-lick. i had the gnocchi with gorgonzola and salsa rosa, which was also disappointing. the gnocchi came as long tubular breaded masses, sliced to resemble backgammon pieces, and had about as much flavor. no one finished their dishes that evening.

I adore having Mingo in our neighborhood. Beaverton is growing up and getting so many wondeful new restaurants and Mingo is at the top of the list. We often go there just for a glass of wine and appetizers and it is a perfect meal. I would recommend going for dinner over lunch as the menu is much larger.

I only end up at Mingo, because my friends love it and I just go with the flow. Last night was my fifth try and I have to say if I'm invited again I will have to pass. The food is terrible, especially the pasta. My fourth time was a disaster, al dente to Mingo means to pass the pasta over the boiling water. You need a toothpick to get it out of your teeth. After sending my linguini back twice,I switched to gnocchi which was mush except for the frozen part in the middle. By the way their gnocchi is not potato gnocchi. To be safe this time I ordered pizza. They took it upon themselves to cover it with salt and pepper, which ruined it. I guess the only way to go is have a glass of wine at Mingo and go eat somewhere else for a lot less. Italian food can be so much better.

Lovely space. Friendly and attentive service. Tasty cocktails. Good wine. I didn't find the prices to be too high, but for what we paid, I was hoping to be more impressed. The food was good but not great. We had the Chianti pasta which was a bit bland and burnt tasting. Its good that I am not afraid of oil because my fish had a HEALTHY (understating) dose of it. I have heard enough good things about other dishes that I might be convinced to return, but I would have to be convinced.

My wife and I have been to Cafe Mingo in Northwest Portland for many years, but this was our first dinner at the Beaverton location. Food was terrific, period. But what I want to stress was the great service from our server, Amy. I'm a snob when it comes to service, and Amy was as close to perfection as anyone could come. She was attentive but not hovering. Her friendliness and enthusiasm were incredible. I will always ask for her station in future visits.

I ate here for the first time on 10/16/2006. I recently moved here from Chicago, and travel frequently, which I mention only because it gives me a wide frame of reference. My conclusion is that the reviews below that say prices are too high, portions too small, are off base. I think that the excellence of the food, and the atmosphere, fully justify the prices. To be clear, they are higher than average (our tab for dinner for two, incl. salads, one side, bottle of lower-priced wine, tip, but no appetizer, no dessert, was $104). The portions were adequate (not huge) and I'm not a dainty eater. My spouse even had some pasta left to keep for lunch the next day. But I do think that if you charge these prices, service should be flawless or at least close thereto. Besides minor things like never having a second glass of wine poured for us, there were two glitches. First, pepper is not available at the table, which we noticed only after the server had brought our salads. Had to wait and ask her if any was available. She should have offered it when she served the salads. Second, both the kitchen and the server forgot about my side of roasted squash. When I inquired, I was told "sorry!" and it was brought about 5 minutes later. The 4 slivers of acorn squash would have been worth the $5 if they had arrived with my pasta, but under the circumstances, I think the server should have said "these will be complimentary tonight." After all, that would have cost Mingo about 50 cents (the price of a whole squash right now at Lamb's), gotten the server at least a 20% tip, and ensured a return visit by us. I just don't get it: a restuarant like this needs regulars to survive. We will return, but if the service continues in this vein, not for long.

I thought this would be a fun place to eat as I had heard so many great things about Portland's "Mingo." While the restaurant is nicely decorated and has decent service, the food was awful. My husband's pasta was so-so and my osso bucco was tough and had to be sawed with my knife. I was very disapointed since I had sprung for one the higher priced entrees as a treat. I would maybe try again with a different entree, but proabbly not.

I usually order the rare tuna panini and when they have it the lemon tart. Both are absolutely great. I did have one instance wherethe tuna was overcooked- the wait staff were gracious and immediately brought me a rare tuna fillet. The ice tea is also excellent.

My wife and I decided to get on the MAX one evening and ride until we found a new place to eat. It was a very short trip. We stopped at Beaverton Central and checked out Mingo at The Rounds. It was great! The service was outstanding, and the waitress was able to recommend the perfect wine to compliment our food. There's indoor and outdoor seating, and the decor is very attractive. We were a little disappointed when we found out they were out of ravioli, but made up our minds to visit again when we heard the excuse....their pasta maker broke down, and they were waiting on a replacement...from Italy! Talk about authentic! If you're a fan of fresh Italian food, and you're tired of the franchise places, check our Mingo, and try the Caprese salad!!

Cons: Could be considered pricey ($40+ per couple)

.

The location is nice and so is the outside dining area. However, ambience doesn't make up for the snooty service and overpriced dishes. The dinner ravioli plate was more like a lunch sized portion and cost $18. If you still want to give Mingo a try, stop by for lunch instead of dinner and save some money.

This is truly one of the best Italian restaurants in the Portland metro area. The specials are always creative and tasty, and the service is awesome. Make sure to try the goat cheese and carmalized onion pizza, and the special raviolis and rissoto dishes are always a treat. Save room for dessert. The people who say that you don't get enough for the money have obviously never dined downtown. Mingo is a truly first rate establishment. Make sure to visit Monica in the bar for a cocktail She will start your night off with a big smile and a great drink.

Excellent service generally, good salads, grappa, entres, and deserts. Limited beer selection and smaller portions. A good value. Sometimes parking is inconvenient.

This is by far the worst place I've been in years. We took another couple here for dinner and left broke and very hungry. It all started when our waiter told us that the inexpensive wine wasn't good and if we wanted something worth while, we would select something from the mid to upper price range.

Then we ordered ensalada caprese. Our waiter suggested we 'upgrade' to the group sized portion for the four of us. This wasn't on the menu but we went w/ it anyway. We had a few slices of cheese and approx 1 tomato for $18! Then we were on to really expensive, super small entrees.

All in all, very disappointing. I'll never be back. If you do make the mistake of going, take a few extra dollars and head next door to Typhoon afterwards so you don't go home w/ your stomach growling.

Be aware that groups of 6 or more automatically have an 18% gratuity added. Wine list larger than menu, but few wines by the glass. Nate, our waiter, was less than attentive to our needs. Good cocktails like Italian Job and Guava Cosmos. Mingo serves bread with olive oil and balsalmic vinegar - but not enough for 8 people to dip their bread in. The risotto special was good, but hardly enough to fill one man's stomach; he wound up eating other's leftovers. One child's portion of pasta was larger than the adult's plate of pasta! My halibut had grilled peppers on top which were in reality, slimy. The halibut was nothing special, but the side potatoes and brussel spouts were delicious! Drinks and dessert would be the only reason to return for me - we loved the Boca Nera - flourless chocolate cake.

I'm sick of hearing the tragically hip, prozac-deprived, gothic, city riff-raff wannabes whine about restaurants as great as Mingo showing up in the suburbs. Get over yourself and stop writing bad poetry!!!

Thank goodness we all don't have to fight the traffic into Portland to have amazing food in the burbs. Mingo in Beaverton is a light in the fog. Try the lunch free range chicken with fall veggies. DIVINE. Everything works and it isn't a shame!

For those who scoff -- clinicial depression is a diagnosis, see a physician! I'm headed to Mingo to breathe in the garlic and breathe out the irony.
