about us

When The Observatory opened its doors in December of 2008, it became an instant anchor of the Montavilla neighborhood in Southeast Portland. Built by two young couples with years of restaurant experience, both the space and the menu were designed to have something for everyone.

The environment is sophisticated yet casual so it works for a special night out or an easy place to meet up after work. When you walk in the door, you can tell right away that staff is happy to have you there.

A few years in, as business grew, the opportunity to expand arose and Over and Out was born. Down the hall you'll find Over and Out, the observatory's 21+ bar featuring the same inviting menu, pinball, pool and tvs. This is a great place to gather with friends, watch the game or just have a casual meal or drink.
