I accompanied my girlfriend to a work Holiday Party at Mint a couple weeks ago. The restaurant was rented out for this party alone and the staff treated us as though we were imposing. The service was AWEFUL. Just to reiterate, the service was AWEFUL. The waiter was drunk and completely inappropriate. The food came out incredibly slow and one plate at a time. I ate an hour and a half after dinner service began. This is completely unacceptable. This was by far the worst service I have had in Portland. I would highly recommend that you stay away from this restaurant for your Holiday work party needs.
This is a wonderful place to have a great meal. It isn't the cheapest place to eat, but the food is great. The service is great. The mixed drinks menu is to die for. The ambiance is classy and warm. Highly recommend
The bar at 820 is a taste of Portland's weirdness. They have discovered new and interesting ways to get you intoxicated. It seems that their specialty is drinks with a few different flavors, some more subtle than others. If you like a little adventure for your taste buds, check this place out. Many of their martini shaped drinks have natural herbs in them, no really, check it out. They of course serve all the standards as well. Nice ambiance as well, easy enough to talk to your date. I dug it.
