Chart House Restaurant - Portland
ExaggeratingIt is one of few places one can enjoy the food and the place at the same time. My family and I have been there couple of times especially when we want to have a relaxing dinner. This time we went to celebrate my daughter's graduation because it is the place for such event. Everything was fine to the limit we were looking for except the prices... too expensive. .6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWould recommendI take business partners to this restaurant when in Portland. It is always a highlight of the trip.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMthree course meal for $29.00We had the three course meal for $29.00. The clam chowder soup and the key lime pie were excellent. The shrimp dish and the red snapper were very good. However, the third selection in the list of main dishes, the meat, was not good at all. During special deals like this they should serve only really great food, in order to get people to come back again. The view is superb.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful, as alwaysBeautiful view on a beautiful Portland day. The food was delicious and fresh as always. I treated some friends to lunch. They had never been to Chart House - and they will be returning.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brandy peppercorn medallionsThe brandy peppercorn medallions were tender almost beyond belief. The only more tender beef I've had, world-wide, was in Vina Del Mar, Chile.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful EveningWe celebrated my daughter's 26th birthday with a group of 10 and had a wonderful time.

I would strongly recommend this restaurant!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT VIEWEverything was wonderful, except, they had lost our resevations. A little embarassing. Other than we will be back.....6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing viewBeen wanting to come here for years and we finally made it up. We were not disappointed. The view was amazing and the food was pretty good too. The food had great flavor and was very enjoyable. One nice touch that surprised me, my husband and I both wore black pants and when the hostess seated us, she gave us black napkins and took the white ones off the table so we wouldn't get "lint" on our pants. Nice little extra thought.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood brunch menuWe had the two crab salads on the menu, and both were outstanding. Our waitress was exceptionally good. The clouds in front of the mountains were the only unacceptable part of the morning. Be sure you have reservations if you go there on a Sunday morning.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful view and AmbienceCharthouse is a wonderful venue for a special occasion, great food, wonderful view and ambience!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceTook the family to Chart House to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Views were spectacular and the meals were incredible. Really enjoyed the Crab, Mango Salsa, and Avocado Appetizer! There personal note printed at the top of the menus made this special day very memorable! Thank you Chart House for a wonderful dining experience!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM40th birthday dinnerMy husband and I celebrated my 40th birthday dinner at The Chart House. Food was amazing! I had the king salmon and my husband had the scallops (I'm very picky about how scallops are prepared and if I had known how great Chart House did them, may have ordered for myself - worked great anyway because my husband shared!)
Service was top notch, friendly and our server was very gracious in taking a few memorable photos for us.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat anniversary dinnerMy first visit to the Chart House was to celebrate our 37th anniversary. I had remembered hearing that it was very good, so I came in with high expectations. Even those high expectations were exceeded. We had King Estate pinot gris which was very good. I had a chopped salad. That sounds boring, but it was much better than that. My wife pointed out the New Wave Surf and Turf. I had skipped over it because steak and fish usually doesn't interest me. However, *this* was ribs and scallops! Two things that I love. Both were very good. The sauce served with the ribs was as good as any I had ever had. The scallops were prepared perfectly with a sauce that included a bit of wasabi. This is the best restaurant I have been to in the Portland area.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fabulous!My husband and I are in sales and eat out constantly for business. For our 2nd anniversary we chose the Chart House and had an amazing meal. The salmon was absolutely fabulous. The staff was wonderful as well.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch for my best friendMy best friend was in town for the long weekend. I wanted to treat her to something nice, something different. I hadn't been to The Chart House yet. Food was excellent! Our server was a little slow (we thought she was picking and squeezing the oranges herself). Overall, it was a fun place to try out. The view was fantastic. Prices were not bad; you know what to expect going in.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent View and great BrunchExcellent View and great Brunch Menu. It wasn't very crowded which was great.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AML-O-V-E the Chart HouseWe always make reservations for our special occasions at the Chart house.
The service is always Wonderful as is the food.... and that view !!!
What more do I need to say - Perfect in every way :)5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM77th Birthday celebrationWe were celebrating my husband's 77th birthday and we are new to the area. We wanted a place that was special, with good views and excellent service; and we got all that. Our server Julie was attentive, and had wonderful suggestions for our dining pleasure. Excellent atmosphere, in the future, we will take all visiting friends and relatives to introduce them to the wonderful ambience of Chart House.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, serviceFood was delicious, service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant as a great place to celebrate any occasion.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Chart House!Chart House is wonderful. It has great ambience and the food is delicious.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerWe chose Chart House for our 15th wedding anniversary dinner. Food was great and had to try the hot chocolate lava cake. The last time we were here was our prom night. Still as fun and tasty as we remembered it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing PlaceWent out with a group from work, loved the view, food was outstanding, and the view is breath taking! The service was right on and the dessert was just the cherry on top for us. I had a filet steak and it was cooked to perfection! I will be returning soon!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AM35th AnniversaryIt was our 35th wedding anniversary. While we've eaten at the restaurant before, this was a very special occasion. Our names and congratulations were on the menu! Wow! Nice waiter and wonderful meal. Even the valet asked how our meal was.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and ViewSeated promptly on arrival. Our elevated table gave us fantastic views of the river valley, city & Mount Hood. Server was friendly, personable & funny. Our meals were all excellent & we left full & satisfied.
- excellent sea food
- extensive wine list
- complimentary valet parking (I tipped the driver)
- AMAZING views of the city, river valley & Mount Hood
- great service
- the prices were pretty high (paying for the food & view)
- valet parking was unnecessary
- a little difficult to get to if unfamiliar with the city
I would definitely go back, but probably only for a special occasion, as the price tag on the meal was a little steep. I would recommend everyone try it once, even if you are only in Portland for a short time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmostSo I was taking my daughter,(age 40,2kids, who had just finished all her BScience classes an was accepted into nursing school), out for a congratulatory lunch. Our waitress was wonderful but there was a long 15-20 min wait after we finished each course. All the food was delicious except for my salmon Caesar....you could barely taste any Caesar flavor....minimal Parmesan....and 3 croutons. The salad was wilted and looked like it had been tossed early that morning. Very disappointing. My daughter's selections were everything I had hoped for and she felt pampered.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, slow serviceAs always, the food and views were wonderful. Unfortunately, this night the service was very slow. At one point the server asked us if he had the right table and needed to confirm he was to be waiting on us. This is unusual for the restaurant.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 16th Birthday dinner for SonHad a great experience. Waiter was funny, attentive and added to the fun of the event. Everyone enjoyed their food, there was plenty, and lots of little boxes went home.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellentThe service was excellent with the exception - I was not seated immediately even though the restaurant had just opened and all of the tables were available.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for BrunchMy fiancé and I met another couple at the Chart House recently for brunch and it was great. On a clear, sunny day the scenic vista from the Chart House viewpoint is both stunning and beautiful. What a fitting backdrop for a wonderful and delicious brunch. On the day we visited, our selections included the Shaved Prime Rib Benedict, and the Traditional Eggs breakfast with pancake. Everything was cooked to perfection and delicious!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs nice as this restaurantAs nice as this restaurant is, I felt it was tacky to present customers at the end of their meal to sign up for the points? program. It really cheapened the experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHats off to CHStaff was courteous and prompt, kept me in coffee as I waited for my delayed guest. Food was excellent, quite reasonably price. Loved the staggering view across the Willamette and the art glass inside. I'll be back!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait staff is friendlyThe wait staff is friendly and timely the food has unique flavors

We all had the chowder/sandwich combo, and it was great. It was a club sandwich, and, unless they have changed it recently, the sandwich during the week is a turkey sandwich. The ice tea is a fruity ice tea, and it is excellent.
The server was very attentive and helpful. Great morning all around except the weather didn't cooperate and let the mountains come out.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy children and I had dinnerMy children and I had dinner to celebrate my 50th anniversary.

Thank you!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEAster 2013Even as busy as they were on Easter Sunday, the staff was fantastic and did not look harried. The food was great and my coffee cup never went below half full. Exceptional.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGo back to the Great NY Strips!!!!!Something has happened in your NY Strips - the only thing I ever order. They used to be delicious but the last 2 I've had have been tough and not as flavorful. It's got me wanting to find another "favorite" restaurant! I used to brag about how Chart House's New York's were superior to anything else on the menu and had people agree after they took bites of mine. The last 2 have been embarrassingly bad. I wouldn't even think about doing the taste "test" with my friends.
Seems like you've changed suppliers. Fire them immediately!! Go back to the good one! PLEASE!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Shelf all the way andTop Shelf all the way and surprisingly not expensive. You will be pleased.(but be prepared to have and pay for valet parking as there is no place to park!)3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go for special occasionsWe go for special occasions as it is spendy.Love their Scallops entree(excellent), and always have the chopped spinach salad(very good. Didn't think the Creme Brulee was as good as I expected.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
