Portland Restaurants

Genoa

Updated 05/30/2013

Fodor's Review

Widely regarded as one of the finest restaurants in Portland, Genoa serves a five-course prix-fixe Italian menu that changes with the availability of ingredients and the season. In addition to appetizers, pastas, salads, and desserts, diners can chose from well-portioned, thoughtfully crafted entrées that might include seared duck breast with onions, apples, and arugula or steelhead trout with brioche, carmelized yogurt, and butternut squash. The dining room's dark antique

furnishings, long curtains, and dangling light fixtures lend it an air of sophistication, and with seating limited to under a few dozen diners, service is excellent. For delicious, less expensive small plates as well as a full bar, head to sister property café Accanto next door.

The Genoa doesn't care, they don't have to.

Our first visit was a once in a lifetime, delightful experience. As a treat, on our wedding anniversary (2001), we went back & were sadly disappointed. We were so disappointed with our dining experience we emailed The Genoa via their website & to this day have not heard back. Our waiter was rude, slow and clumsy - not informed about the selections or food preparation. The food was luke warm and at best, average. For the money, it's over-rated and

over priced. The Genoa may well have been a premier restaurant, but those days are gone - they've been there done that. We won't be going back.

Not the best any longer

20 years ago, Genoa was "it" for an authentic Italian dinner. Now, there are many fine Italian dinner houses in Portland and Genoa is about average among the good ones. Consequently, it is now over-priced.

True Italian Atmosphere without the slow service

Excellent food, attentitive but not instrusive service, true Italian feel to decor. Recommend highly.

Slow - Slow - Slow

We were kept waiting in a back room that looked like a broom closet...with no apologies. I'd never go back. This place used to be great.
