Reviews for Chaval

We were extremely disappointed in our dinner at Chaval tonight. We chose this restaurant over many others (Union, Scales, etc) for our nice family dinner out in Portland because some other reviews looked great, in addition to the fact that my daughter has Celiac disease and we read they were able to make great accommodations for her dietary restriction. We had a 7:15 reservation on a Tuesday night and were seated just a few minutes after arriving, but a long night of waiting full review

Just a fantastic meal. Clever, inventive menu. They have "nose to fin" halibut offerings which are brilliant -- try the ribs and the terrine with rose petals. I've never had a dish with rose petals that I enjoyed but this was amazing. A real treat!

This was my first stop in Portland and honestly, it should have been the last - because it is that good. We went all in: -Asparagus - 6/10 - standard side, nice jamon bits -Crab Cakes - 7.5/10 - small, and deep fried -Stuffed Peppers - 10/10 - eat a billion!! -Steak Frites - 6.5/10 - little tough, but frites 9/10 -Roasted Collar - 10/10 - so unusual, and delicious -Strawberries - 7.5/10 - caviar on cake? Who knew! First off, service here was so good. Very friendly waitress full review
