Featured In:

“In Portland’s Alphabet District, it’s not unusual to see lines for a restaurant table or an ice cream cone. But the focus of Lost Plate Food Tours is to give its guests an alternative to the well-known spots, focusing instead on hidden gems that serve up some of the city’s best food and drinks. From the first glass of wine to the final beer, our group enjoyed an extraordinary dining experience in six different neighborhood spots on our Evening Food & Drink Tour.”

“I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Portland! We did the evening tour, and I was not disappointed. Our guide was absolutely wonderful, so knowledgeable and passionate about the city, it’s history and everything is has to offer. All of the places we visited were fantastic. It was great to see the culture and true Portland gems that weren’t “touristy.” The tour was my favorite part of the whole trip – thanks Lost Plate!”

“Joined a lovely group led by Michelle. I chose tour because it was in the evening, but there are other great reasons to do it. It was fun and educational and I learned a lot about Portland cuisine. And the food and drink was great, particularly the pasta and the wine. Loved the neighborhood so much I went back the following night to eat.”

Frequently Asked Questions:

We have many happy customers who do more than one of our tours in Portland! We have designed our tours to focus only on very different parts of the city and different cuisines. This means that each dish, story, and vibe is unique to each tour and there aren’t any repeats.

Most people are very surprised how broad the culinary scene is in Portland, and our tours are a good way to discover those differences. We cover everything from food carts to private kitchen experiences, morning coffees to wine tastings. We encourage you to pick the tours that best fit your itinerary and we offer a 10% discount if booking more than one tour.

This tour covers about 1.5 miles by foot, so we recommend leaving the heels at home. This distance is split up between 5 stops, so it’s roughly a 10 minute walk between each stop and a great chance to digest a bit before the next course. We also find that exploring by foot is the best way to see this neighborhood and find relics dotted throughout. If this sounds like a too much walking, our other tours in Portland cover less distance.

This tour includes a wine tasting flight, a craft cocktail, and a local craft beer. At stops which do not have alcohol, we will provide water or you are welcome to purchase your own drink if time permits. It’s definitely plenty to drink, and shows off the variety of tasty beverages found throughout the city.

Not a drinker? No problem! Please let us know if you will not be drinking prior to the tour and we will make sure to provide tasty non-alcoholic options for you.

All of the places we visit during this tour do allow minors, however we recommend leaving the kids at home for this one. Our other tours in Portland are a much better fit for the little ones. Our general recommendation for this tour is that guests are 21 years of age or over, but feel free to let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Our tours have been designed to accommodate as many diets as possible while still remaining stupid delicious. We are happy to welcome vegetarians and pescatarians, but please let us know prior to your tour date as same day requests cannot be guaranteed.

Our minimum is 2 and maximum is 12. There’s no flag to follow, or megaphone, or tacky uniforms. It’s small enough to be intimate, but big enough to get away with trying several dishes at each stop. You’ll get plenty of face-time with the experts. Bottom line is, you’ll follow the guide through a super-local experience and make friends along the way. It is awfully common for our guests to continue the evening together after the tour is over for a few more rounds.

This tour starts at 5pm at our first stop in the Slabtown neighborhood in Northwest Portland (the popular NW 23rd street is nearby). You’ll get the exact address, directions, and transportation details immediately after booking.

The end location is approx. 1 block away from the start location. Our last stop is at a brewery, where you are able to stay as long as you like!

This tour lasts about 3 hours and ends at a brewery. It’s not uncommon for guests to stay out and keep the pints going afterwards.
