I haven't had too many good experience at Safeway in the Pearl. I was there a few days ago and it literally took like 15 min for me just to checkout for a couple bottles of water. Even before I was there for produce and was finding rotten fruit. I hate seeing my "whole" paycheck go away at Whole Foods, but it may be worth it if this is what Safeway is going to bring to the table

I have had several meals at Metro Vino, all of which have been very good. Everything from the service to wine selection to the food quality has just been amazing. I am a full experience kind of guy here and normally order all courses. Flavors are not to be forgotten. Steak was perfectly cooked, the two times I got it. Also had some wonderful chowder. It has a great outdoor seating for warm days and the staff treats you like family. No complaints here.

went to brake team to get the brakes done on my car. The place has really flexible hours and is even open on weekends. Didn't have to wait too long either. They ended up doing a brake fluid flush and replacing the rear shoes. All seemed good and the car stopped way better. Even got out of there at a great price. The only thing was that they forgot to tighten the cap back on to the brake fluid reservoir. That seems basic to me, so that is why I didn't give it more stars.

Tried Snails for the first time! I went to Chez Joly with a large group of people, about 15 of us or so. The large party was accommodated without an issue, even though the restaurant itself is small. Small wasn't a bad thing, it sort of gave more of an authentic European experience. Snails aren't bad at all from what I experienced, quite tasty with tons of garlic and butter :-) for my main course I had a home-made recipe rib eye, which was tasty, but a bit disappointing that it was so thin and cooked medium well when I asked for medium rare. All in all I would go back to Chez Joly, the experience was positive and service was especially good for a large group.

I have been going to Max Muscle for nearly ten years now. This location is a perfect addition to the Pearl District. It's centered between two major gyms, I have stopped by after workouts at 24 hour fitness to pick up some bars and protein powder. Great selection of products.

went to Cafe Allora with the family and it was a great experience. It feels like a family place and it's small and intimate which is cool. The owner is usually there which gives it an even more local feeling. I had the Spaghetti carbonara. It was very rich and tasty. Most authentic taste I've had in a while. Would def recommend this place!

I have been banking with Bank of America for over 20 years, and though there has never been any superstar products or services I've received, it has been consistent. The new Bank of America branch in the Pearl is a nice addition to the North end of the Pearl District. It's an easy walk from my office to get withdrawals and transfers done for my business. The tellers are friendly and pretty efficient.

If you're looking for a sports club/gym which is clean, consistent, and low profile this is your place. The place is nice, although its kinda plain Jane. The vibe or energy wasn't there for me. I like to feel everyone is really working out, in a zone to keep fit. Didn't really get that here. But it could be totally good for peeps who like the low profile club.

Great place for some yummy yummy sweetness while supporting a business which also in turn supports the community. Can't go wrong here.

Love the fact that i can sit at nearby businesses and enjoy my coffee and lunch while enjoying the park as well. Kind of reminds me of Europe. But what's with the jail looking bathroom? ewww

The food is pretty consistent here at Noodles and Company. My usual is the Bangkok Curry. It has great taste and a good variety of steamed veggies. This place is a good standby if you need something fast. The wait time on the food is decent too.

This was my first time at the Burrito Bar this evening... I wasn't sure what to expect really. I got there a couple min after eight realizing that their closing time was eight. Ooops. The young lady welcomed in cheerfully anyways which was nice. A good way to describe this place would be to call it Salvador Mollys burrito express. They have lots of styles of meats. Spicy to Sweet including pulled pork and Jerk chicken just to name a few. Lots of different varieties of salsas as well. I had a mango/pineapple based salsa which was yummy with the Jerk chicken! Huge portions BTW.

I love Byways!! The 1950's throw back cafe style decor and ambiance rocks! They have random stuff like old viewfinders with National Park slides. My fav are the Omelets, I usually get the Denver and it comes with a ton of potatoes. I always add in a side of blue berry pancakes cuz they are the bomb. Get there before 9 on weekends otherwise you'll be in line!

I love that I can get some cheap beer in the Pearl! I was there tonight for some good ol' cheap Miller. Other times I've been my regular is the garlic honey wings. So good. This place is an escape for sure. An escape from reality. Def a dive

Fratelli is such a great place. In my recent visit there I went for happy hour in the bar. I had the lasagna and a glass of wine which was perfecto!! The quality of the food is top notch and the experience is right up there as well. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic evening if that's your objective.. hit this place up!

LIfe of Riley can be one of those places that has multiple options depending on your mood. Upstairs I like the couches they have in the corner for just kicking it. Lots of TV's to watch sports. Downstairs if I'm more in the "loud" mood and want to get my drink on and play some pool or shuffleboard... The place is pretty cool. Food/Service... so so.

Ok, you gotta try the cucumber kamikaze. It's my favorite drink here. So refreshing... you can just down them one after another so get a taxi ready!! I was there for happy hour so I got some bread and oil to help soak it all up!! Not another bar like it in Portland.

Went to Henry's last night for dinner. Ate in the dining room. Was originally seated right next to the kitchen which was ear piercing loud. Guess that's standard with an open kitchen but still it was hard to carry on aconversation with all the noise. Luckily the manager was accomodating and moved us to a diff table that was nice. The food is def not bad but nothing to write home about either. However it is consistent which is nice

This place is great. When you walk in there is a huge map of the USA made up of license plates from each state. Sooooo cool :-) I Have been here for both dinner and happy hour. I have not had a bad meal here. I love the fifty burger up at the bar. Its got it all and the FRIES. To die for. Love how they come in the mini paper bag.

I love the sidewalk seating at Rogue Brewery. Evening on a cool evening like tonight people flock here the cool location and seating aplenty. The food was just okay. Kobe burger was supposed to be something special, but came out overcooked and for 15 bones, not sure that was worth it. The clam chowder was good though. I would def recommended this place for a pitcher of beer outside with friends!

The North end of the Pearl finally has a great anchor coffee shop! I loved the inside decor as it reminded me of the Pearl and Central Oregon! My fav is the Chai latte! Yum :)

Don't miss out on meeting Olson, the best mascot you ever met. Bonnet has a really great variety of hats from traditional, to the military style one I got. The staff was super friendly. There was another customer in the store at the same time as me returning a product and it was so easy. Don't worry they will treat you right even if the hat doesnt work.

One of the best things about the Pearl District is that many businesses are located in old buildings that used to once drive the industrial economy. 24 Hour Fitness is one of them. There is an old crane in the rafters, old brick walls; it's so cool. The place get's pretty busy after work during the weekdays, but I think it's a cool environment to see so many people up for the challenge to stay fit.

Had the salad and it was good but they are a bit skimpy on the chicken. Overall quality was good though. I wish they would get the 5 calorie lemonade instead of the full blown sugar version. Good place for a fast lunch. Music too loud

This Bakery has it all. Its got the "Bakery" feel.... employees buzzing around making fresh pastries, a coffee bar, WIFI, restaurant, great variety of seating including the best outdoor seating in Portland. I really get a feeling of community when I come here. DO NOT miss this place when the sun is out!!

Convenient location coming from NE Portland into the Pearl. Healthy options like the egg white sandwich is what keeps me coming back in the mornings.
