View the 2012 Reader Survey results here! Here are the results of the reader survey of the best restaurants in Portland. The total number of votes was a bit daunting, but I narrowed them down to a group which stood far above the rest. Within each of the three groups, the votes were very close. The tally dropped off … [Read more...]
Reader's Choice - Best of 2011!
These are our Reader’s choices for Best Restaurants 2011 from our survey of over 900 readers! You’ll find their top choices by type of cuisine and more.
This pretty much fell along the lines of whatever restaurants in town have a group table, and are reasonably priced. Not sure why I even asked this question, though number 2 was a surprise. Out of 556 votes: Toro Bravo – 120 NE Russell St., Portland. Map (503) 281-4464 My review. Andina – 1314 Northwest … [Read more...]
Only a few questions results left -next week I will finish with Best Restaurants. For those of you who will ask, yes, all of these opened in 2010. Fin would have placed second, but it isn't open anymore, so those votes were eliminated. However, they get an honorable mention. Out of 554 votes: Tasty N Sons -25% … [Read more...]
My vote would be lunch in a sunny park in Portland, but I suppose any of these restaurants could provide that, and give you a decent place to eat on a rainy day. One of the choices absolutely buttered everyone else in the survey results. Out of 748 votes: Bunk Sandwiches -26% of the vote. 621 Southeast Morrison … [Read more...]
As we wind down to the readers choice for Top Restaurants, we have three more survey results to post. The first few choices didn't surprise me, but third choice made no sense to me, especially when compared to the others. I don't have anything against the restaurant, it's just that it has a totally different … [Read more...]
This vote restored some of my faith in readers picking some of the more interesting places in town rather than the most popular. I'm rather surprised by the outcome. Although we got a good number of votes, there was a huge spread in the number of restaurants nominated, which meant only a few had enough to stand … [Read more...]
From the comments I've gotten, many of you feel that Portland has a long way to go as far as seafood is concerned. Many added notes lamenting the loss of Fin. I agree. For a city so close to rivers, lakes and the ocean, the state of our seafood is sad. Out of 432 votes: Jakes - 15% of the vote. 401 Southwest 12th … [Read more...]
This question was suggested by a reader, and added to the poll at the last-minute. I think it was a good idea, and was interested to see which restaurants placed on top of the pack. Here are the results. Out of 490 votes cast: Metrovino -20% of the vote. 1139 Northwest 11th Ave., Portland, OR 97209 (503) … [Read more...]
Just in time for the weekend, our readers vote for the best place for a late-night snack. Out of 760 votes: Cartopia at 12th and Hawthorne - 46% of the vote! Open 12pm - 3am. Map When split into vendors, Potato Champion and Whiffies Fried Pies take the prize. The others are a distant 2nd and … [Read more...]
I'm not particularly interested in vegetarian restaurants, and I got lots of snarky comments when I put this in the survey. That being said, there are lots of people in Portland who this is important to, as well as restaurants that work their tails off to make them happy. The results here were split among many local … [Read more...]
