Has anyone been there? Reviews...? and how do you contact them to make reservations?

    For OCI, try 503.961.6200.
    For Bleu, try 503.294.9770.

    I haven't been to either one. What I've heard - OCI is better than Bleu,
    and that exhausts my knowledge on the subject.

      I have had lunch at both.

      Bleu is tragically bad...seriously horrific, in fact. Best advice I can give you is to avoid it...everyone I know who has had a meal here (lunch and dinner) thinks it sucks. Food is lousy, service was worse, prices ridiculous. I know they are students, and I don't mean to be overly harsh, but it was just awful.

      OCI was a good lunch experience overall - decent food, very good service and a much better value for the price. I have not been for dinner (it has been less than 2 months since they have been serving dinner), but will try it at some point.

        Thanks guys, I ate at the OCI restaurant for dinner last night. Let me tell you what, the food was amazing, and surprisingly great. The service was great too. A four course meal for $14. I def. recommend it to anyone.

          I was there recently for lunch, and it was terrific! Extremely attentive service and well-prepared, beautifully plated food. Bleu has some serious customer-service problems which apparently come from the top down. Highly recommend OCI!
