"Portland's Veritable Quandary is a slice of old Portland that keeps pace without losing it's authentic Portland feel."
- The Business Journal

Founded in 1971 by Dennis King, Veritable Quandary is old Portland charm in the middle of the bustling downtown core. Over the years, VQ has seen its fair share of change. The patio bursts into bloom every spring, the cozy glass-walled dining room opens and closes to bring in or keep out the elements.

Our Chef, Annie Cuggino's creative menus are always fresh and new, blending her background in some of New York and New Orleans' finest restaurants with farm-fresh northwest ingredients.

The staff, warm, attentive and friendly. The place, well, it's an oasis in the heart of the city! Come see for yourself!

Getting There/FYI

"Yes" is a social commitment, not a back-up to other plans. Please be considerate. No Shows & Last Minute Cancellations negatively impact the restaurant, your fellow members experiences & future RSVP's, and your Host. If you can not attend the MeetUp please update your RSVP by Saturday May 25th @ 5pm so that people on the Wait List have an opportunity to attend & I can update reservation w/ restaurant if need be. Please be on time. That means be early. We, generally, can not be seating until our ENTIRE PARTY has arrived. This restaurant will not provide separate checks. 18% gratuity added to large parties (that's us!) Please, in order to make paying the bill convenient for everybody - and so you can tip your server appropriately, BRING SMALL BILLS. $20's are NOT small bills.

Thank you for your consideration. Everybody in the Group, and the restaurant appreciate it!
