We love this place. Discovered it about 3 years ago when my husband & I were strolling along officer's row and every time since we've always had a good experience. Great food served by very friendly & attentive people. It's right next to Fort Vancouver and the building is absolutely charming. The first time we came they let us stroll around to check out the rest of the house which is beautiful. The charming atmosphere coupled with good food is perfect for a date night out.
Best steak we've ever had hands down (sorry Ruth Chris) and I enjoy that my food comes without the usual Portland hipster attitude. I'm so tired of being served by people who think they're too cool to serve the ignorant suburbanites (who can afford to tip well but aren't worth it since I didn't come in wearing skinny jeans). I will keep coming back for great food and service. Order the kobe beef burger to have your mind blown about just how awesome a hamburger can be, or order the ravioli for a home-style satisfying meal. Prices might seem high to some, but only if compared to chain joints over-serving us huge portions of terrible food. I think it's well worth the drive for the food and experience.

We ordered our starters: crab cakes with Cajun aioli & red (I can't write the b***d word here for some reason) orange compote, and ye old standby- Calamari with spicy marinara. The cakes were lightly breaded, seasoned with herbs and pan fried, and the aioli/compote was a great pairing. You got crunch, giving way to soft and flaky crab/herbs, and a nice smoked-spiced tangy sauce cutting in. If you like a variety of flavors in your mouth at once, you'll go holy aioli for this. The calamari were also lightly breaded, not like most I've had that taste something like a deep sea tater tot. Despite this, they were a bit toothy. The marinara was house-made, and spicy as promised, but unfortunately served cold. Next came Cajun tomato bisque soup, all steamy and promising. Apparently it's the chef's favorite thing to make. It was satin-smooth, creamy and exotic. I resisted the urge to pick up my bowl and lick it lustfully. We ordered a yummy house zinfandel that went down my throat nice and clean, with a deep cherry taste coating my tongue. Our duck breast arrived well done, which really threw me for a moment since I'm so used to seeing it medium rare, but it was nice and tasty, not at all tough. There was a little reduction sauce settled over the meat that was flavorful, but my favorite thing on the plate was the couscous. The semolina was perfectly light, and fluffy, with the infused flavor and meatiness of the fungi- it was dreamy.
Dessert was an espresso ice cream chocolate cookie sandwich that was just the right balance of flavors, and a bread pudding bananas foster, rich with caramel, but not too heavy. You'll definitely have a memorable meal at The Restaurant. Oh, and if you like whiskey, the Macallan gran reserva is awesome!

For Grant highschools prom, my friends and I ventured over the river to The Grant House. We were seated in the seclusive/intimate porch room, while we shared fantastic food, and nervous conversation. The service was personal, and the experience was unforgetable.
