Where to go to Dinner in Portland Oregon?

My husband and I will be in Portland, Oregon for a Saturday night in about 6 weeks - I'd like some help narrowing down a restaurant choice...

I am vegetarian, he is not - but is generally happy with vegetarian options, so an all veggie restaurant is okay - a steakhouse is not. :)
We don't drink, so wines / wine lists are not important to us.
I'd like something fresh and local focused - I'm not super concerned about price. It would be great to stay under $200, which seems like a great deal of money for dinner with no wine, so I anticipate should cover most options.
Other than the need for some good vegetarian menu options and a preference for something with a local vibe, we are really open. We need a place we can make reservations (I am a country mouse, so do not know if there are places where it is always just first come first serve) - we have tickets to a show at 8 pm and will want to be able to make certain we have been fed prior.
Oh. And I like dessert. I really really like dessert. Sometimes I order it first so I know I will have room. BUT - it might be that we do dinner / show / then out for dessert - so if there someplace with oh-my-heavens-good dessert only that is open late, I'd be super interested to hear about that.
Thanks so much!
