How did we curate these results?

Selecting the right restaurant can be really difficult, especially when you would like to find a new one. We analyzed 717 lists and articles from top sources like Eater, Female Foodie and Hoodline, 9087 Portland restaurants’ ratings across Google and Yelp, and 823905 reviews – all with some boam magic to make sense of the madness. For example, we considered Eater - Where to Eat and Drink in Foster-Powell, Female Foodie - The 40 Best Portland Restaurants (2021 UPDATE) and Hoodline - The 5 best wine bars in Portland as we sourced this ultimate list. We automatically update restaurants’ open hours and services, so you can actually enjoy the top restaurants we show. Every restaurant shown earned its spot fair and square. With boam, money never makes the list. We don’t recommend restaurants lightly, these 10 are really something special.
