What our customers are saying

NW 22nd

"One of the best-kept secrets in Portland dining: retail-priced wine, poured into Riedel stemware and served with the soul-warming fare at Elephants. Why take out when you can stay and dine in such civilized style?"

-- Katherine Cole, Oregonian Wine Columnist & Author of Voodoo Vintners
