Echo, nice to have it in North Portland right? Well, it has a pretty sign, which gives it a leg up on most of the nearby neighborhood dives. We ate here twice, each time feeling the service was "OK", and that the menu, while fancying itself to compare to what it percieves as counterparts (I,E. Gilt, Pause, Joe Bar), is little more than grease served on a bun.
The service is fine, as long as you are deemed "cool" by various criteria of your server. Personally, I went in and was scoffed at. I was in my work attire, which includes a tie. I was treated like Satan's love child with Sarah Palin, even though I wear a full tattoo sleeve underneath.
At any rate, I will never go back, and if you value your dollar, I advise you to do likewise. It strikes me as odd, that in a down eceonomy, the customer is not a guest, rather, a nuisance that passes through before closing.
