"The interior is cozy with its portrait of Bill Murray from The Life Aquatic on the wall and other nautically themed decorative touches throughout, and the food is just as thoughtful. Family-style options like cedar-planked whole trout or the prix fixe “Let Us Cook For You” family style dinner put together by the chef for the table are great for groups."
"Head down to the year-old
Jacqueline on Southeast Clinton Street, which has evolved into Portland's best home for seafood."
"Here, owner Derek Hanson (Laurelhurst Market) and his team balance a cast of crudos, shellfish,
fish and fish stews with some
role-playing seasonal veggies in an
upscale reboot of the seafood shack."
"Like Bill Murray himself,
all sweetness and tobacco."
"...the best 2 hours of our day."
"Upscale reboot of a seafood shack."
"Jacqueline adds to the small
but growing pool of restaurants
that do our finned friends justice."
"Best new oyster bar."
"Oregon's best looking cioppino."
"There's a portrait of Bill Murray."
"That's pretty noteworthy in my opinion."
"...this adorable corner bistro is one of the best seafood restaurants in town. Nearly all the fish and shellfish here is certified sustainable, ranging from small plates like smoked scallop ceviche with sprouted coriander to family-style feasts like whole cedar-plank-roasted trout with grilled lemons, skyr, and spicy harissa. And instead of treating the aquatic bounty with the usual greasy fry-up or butter-based sauces, preparations here hew to grilled, roasted, or raw, with a heavy emphasis on seasonal vegetables and herbs."
"At this seafood cove, beneath a painted
portrait of Bill Murray, one can slurp down
$1 happy hour oysters, dig into whole
roasted trout, or devour hyper-seasonal creations lavished with morels and sea beans. It all goes
down smooth with a small, carefully curated wine list and potent quality drinks."
"Eater Portland’s 2017 nominees in the
Restaurant of the Year category serve up everything from creative Northwest seafood plates in a neighborhood setting, to a boundary-pushing chef’s counter in the middle of a modernist kitchen."
"...crudo shows off the kitchen’s creativity, with a shrimp ceviche popping with green strawberries and Fresno chiles, or yellowtail with salted kohlrabi."
At the driftwood-clad bar, beneath a painted portrait of Bill Murray, one can slurp down $1 happy hour oysters accessorized with house tarragon vinegar, jalapeño hot sauce, and red Tabasco.
"The formula is straightforward
and we can’t get enough of it."
"First restaurant in years to make
Cioppino a trademark."
"As every record exec has known since they
invented pop music, you lure them in with the
hits and then seduce them with the deep cuts."
"She didn't really love me."
"Pacific Northwest farm to table."
