This is a cute and classy

This is a cute and classy establishment. The food is excellent and service is good. The decor is beautiful, vintage mirrors, chandeliers, lots of natural light. Brunch here is a must for anyone coming to/living in Portland.

Oh so good

Awesome happy hour. $3 snack size food with your drinks? Sure I'll have a few.

Taking my business elsewhere

Recently went here for dinner and won't be returning. Food is mediocre at best. The primary (and only) seasoning appears to be salt, salt and more salt. Service was decent, but the food is terrible. An insult to mother's everywhere.

Great Food

Our family usually goes for Sunday brunch. The food is always excellent and I just adore the Wild Salmon Hash. The line can be a little long though but it's well worth the wait.

Be Nice or Leave

There is a sign on the wall, ""Be Nice or Leave."" The staff should sincerely take this to heart. Really bad service from start to finish. I had called ahead of time to ask about a table and was told it was ok to come in at 5 pm. They neglected to say that we would need to sit in the bar. Well, that was ok, but not what we wanted. We had quite a few different people serving our table. All were rude. I don't say this lightly.
However, once the food got to our table, it was very good. I had chicken and dumplings which was delicious. My dinner-mate The portions are very large so the remaining was lunch the next day. The desserts are decent as well.
However, we won't be back. The servers, as well as the manager (or whoever that was) need a class in customer service. Badly.

Great Breakfast

I went to read reviews this morning to see what people were giving great raves about for breakfast before going. I could not believe the bad ones. We have been there many times and it is slower with a big crowd of 12, but ALWAYS great food! This morning I had the Wild Salmon hash, mmm good!! (My wife usually gets it and I take some bites.)
My favorite is the Biscuit Breakfast with country sausage gravy. It's not a heavy flour tasting gravy. Try it, its really good.

Best Lunch In Portland........PERIOD

So, I'd been hankering for a meatball sub. I hadn't had one in years, but I was really wanting one. So I get one at a cart by work: fake cheese, cold meatballs, salty sauce on a mushy hot dog bun - inedible. Then Quiznos - yuck, Subway - AWFUL....... so I've eaten 3 meatball subs and all that sodium, carb and fat wasted. So, we're at Mothers and a special is the meatball sub. I order it, but they had just run out - but the waiter says it's amazing. Finally, I'm there on a Meatball Sub Day again and get one - it exceeded my dream lunch! Simply put: it was beyond perfect and worth every calorie, carb and other stuff I limit. The perfect sauce, giant meatballs, cheeses on killer, toasted to idealistic levels, garlic italian roll thing. I subbed their fresh, hand cut fries for the boring pasta salad and chowed.
I work Downtown, and often when I need feeding, I go to Mothers because everything is great (except the pasta salad), but sometimes they exceed greatness to nirvana (like the goulash, matzo ball soup, burgers & fries, cobb salad, breakfasts yada yada.
The only bad thing is that instead of having a meatball sub every 5 years, I'm eating my third in 6 weeks and not losing the few pounds I need to.
