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 Observatory does elegant dinners, quick lunches, inventive happy hour snacks, delicious cocktails and amazing desserts. The Observatory also features rotating seasonal soups and specials.

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.
