Awesome restaurant! Been here more times than I can remember. Their staff are polite, respectfully, and knowledgeable. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SERVING YOU! It was the restaurant that helped make me decide I want to be vegan. Their food prepared well and rich flavor. It fills you up whether you are vegan or not. I've taken A LOT of none vegan friends there and everyone says that they enjoyed their food. I really can't say anything wrong about Blossoming Lotus.

Dishes to try.
Sampler is always good for a first timer.
Falafel Wrap is good for a good lunch.
Love the stir fry.
My two favorites are the live nachos, and quesadillas.

As I said before, I highly recommend this place.

Portobello Vegan Trattoria in Portland, Oregon

We've gone to Portobellos multiple times. It seems like every time we go there we come to two conclusions. 1. The food is awesome. 2. The wait staff are rude. It's getting to the point that we would rather go somewhere else for the "experience" vs. the awesome food. There are many great vegan restaurants in Portland. This is one that I unfortunately am not going to eat at for a while. I'm just hoping, praying, that their management will take their heads out of their "you know what's" and start treating their customers well.

The negative experience we had was a few nights ago. We (party of 2) got there with 1 hour and ten minutes before they closed. They had two people on their waiting list with TWO TABLES unoccupied! They turned us down, saying that they couldn't seat us or feed us prior to ten. When I looked around the restaurant most of the customers had either eaten their food or recently received their food. They apparently don't want a lot of business.
