Diner Reviews
  • "I have eaten at several Chart House restaurants over the years, but it had been a long time, since moving to Oregon. Imagine my delight to recently learn that there was a Chart House in Portland! The entire experience was amazing, from the décor to our friendly, attentive server, to some of the most delicious food I've ever tasted, and to the incredible view of Portland and the peaks of the Cascades!"

  • "We have been coming here for years and this experience was lovely. It was a beautiful summer evening and our out of town guest loved the fabulous view! As always, the food and service were outstanding. Thank you, Chart House."

  • "The view is incredible ! The service was great. Drinks were good. Very disappointed with the food. Before going to this restaurant ,almost everyone I asked about the Chart House, did say "amazing view, mediocre food at best"....sadly they were right."

  • "There isn't another restaurant around that has as many positives as the Chart House. I always enjoy coming. When my friend (who works at OHSU) and I plan our monthly or bi-monthly lunch, we always come to the Chart House. Great job as always!"

  • "Server seemed annoyed my wife & I were eating dinner there; the food was overcooked & when we asked for a different side because of this, they brought us dried out fingerling potatoes. When the server came back at the end of our meal, she asked if I was done and simply took away a plate of food that was half eaten without asking what was wrong. Yes, I should've mentioned something but it was our anniversary & didn't want the stress. We'll never eat there again."

  • "This was a perfect place to take my family from out of town; they enjoyed the food; good choices and well done and service was excellent. The view was excellent and it was a perfect day to show them Portland."

  • "We have been to Chart House many times and its a favorite of ours for out-of-town guests as well as special occasions. We celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary last month and the service and ambiance were FANTASTIC! Unfortunately the food was barely par to a banquet level. The presentation looked just like a plated banquet meal (blah!)and there was virtually no flavor to the "special" dinner which should have been exquisite: Salmon and crab with a special sauce... With a dinner bill close to $200 (with tip and a bottle of wine) we were exceptionally disappointed in how far it seems the quality of the food has deteriorated."

  • "I would say that my title says it all. the view is spectacular, but the ambiance in the food or mediocre. I've been to other chart houses in other states and have had excellent meals but this one was disappointing. I felt like I wasn't in cafeteria more than I hi and steak house. Also, it was awaysaway from downtown and having spent other time and down time I'd say there are other restaurants that would be much better than taking the time to drive all the way out to this destination."

  • "We had a group of seven for lunch, five of us celebrating birthdays. Our server was quite pleasant and accommodating as we asked for five separate checks at the end of the meal. She gladly gave the separate checks requested. The food was very good and all lunches arrived at about the same time so no one was left waiting. I would recommend the Chart House for parties - both large and small."

  • "Upon arrival, it felt as if we had no choice but to participate in the Valet Parking, we finally got "approval" from the valet to park our own car. We were allowed to move our reservation to 30 minutes sooner and I appreciated that. The halibut portion was stated to be 8 oz, but it clearly was not an 8 oz piece of halibut. Dissappointing. My guests' New York Steak was overcooked. We know what can sometimes happen when customers complain about their food, so we decided not to just eat the food. I have been to The Chart House before and enjoyed the dinner, view and service. This time was different. As a Landry's Club Member, there are other dining choices available. We will try somewhere else next time."

  • "Celebrated a Birthday with a wonderful dinner at the Portland Chart House. Beautiful early evening scenery with several mountains glowing with sunset. The Macadamia Nut crusted Mahi Mahi with Mango Relish was rich in savory flavors. Highly recommended. Service was friendly, attentive, and prompt."

  • "Amidst a great view of downtown Portland, the Chart House offers a choice of well prepared meals...meals to fulfill most any appetite. If you get a chance to go there, I should think you will not be disappointed."

  • "The most memorable aspects of this visit were my partner and the magnificent views from the top floor dining room. We had one of the best seats in the house (even though there are no “bad” seats) - corner window. Quiet, private, and romantic - perfect. The staff was very accommodating, but not overly attentive. Please don't expect an extensive - not even a selective - wine list. 85% CA wines, some foreign, and a few locals. Disappointing. We had eaten at a Landry's before, and came here with the expectation that the food would be more elevated than - let's say - McCormick's. It was elevated alright - in that we were sitting on a mountain side restaurant - but other than that, the food was not any more flavorful or amazingly presented."

  • "The food was good and the restaurant was nicely kept and had an amazing view. I would go to the restaurant just for the view. I did feel a little rushed to order and eat. I had asked the server to wait to put out entree order in until I asked her to but shortly after our salads arrived she told me she had put our order in. I wouldn't have given her my dinner order if she hadn't reassured us that she would wait to put our order in until we were ready. For the price I want to relax and enjoy the view and food, not be in a rush so they can seat the next guest."

  • "It was my wife and I first time at chart house, it was also my wife's birthday. We loved the service, food and view. Our server (Aron) made the night. He is a outstanding server. There was some noise from a server that dropped a big tray and broke a lot of dishes and some servers that was throwing dishes around, but overall good place to have happy hour and dinner."

  • "We always enjoy this gem. The food is consistently high quality, prepared just the way we request it, and the presentation is fabulous, too. This is a "go to" destination for us due to lovation, incredible view, parking ease and value."

  • "As usual we had a lovely early dinner. Last time at Easter our reservation we made ended up Being a break in the crowd and it was extremely noise when we arrived. So this time we made our reservation an hour later at 4 pm instead of 3. It was much nicer and as we left a crowd arrived. He had a lovely quite dinner and a window to see the boats going up and down the river. Plus it was raining while we were there and there were rainbows across Portland."

  • "From start to finish, our dinner was a class act. The valet parking was great, window table had a spectacular view, and the service and food were excellent. Right up there with the top 5 restaurants in town."

  • "You can't beat the view and I was pleased to be able to bring the kids to a nice place that took reservations on a day when I knew their tons of other families and kids would be there. The brunch menu was pretty good and surprisingly decently priced. The kids got cinnamon rolls that were so hard (totally crouton-like on the bottom half) that we had to ask for a steak knife to cut them and the sawing motion of the steak knife jiggled the table so much that our precious coffee was spilling out of our cups. The adult omelets were good enough and the waiter attentive; albeit unmoved by the request for a meat cutting apparatus for breakfast pastry. So we chalked it up to a view-focused, family-friendly, dining experience and called it good."

  • "My hubby was very pleased with his Fathers Day surprise dinner out! We had a window table, gorgeous view, very attentive waitperson who listened intently on my special dietary needs, & made it happen! My hubby had a perfect filet, & pre ordered the chocolate lava cake for dessert. It takes 30 min to prepare, but ready pre-ordered as you are seated, as a perfect ending to a lovely dining experience! Thank you Thank You!"

  • "Was a little disappointed that we came for a birthday and didn't get a window table set aside - had to wait extra for one despite restraunt not being super busy - My steak I ordered medium - came more well done - at least it was tender so it was edible. Good food, better than last time a few years ago but not spectacular."

  • "We celebrated our 36th anniversary. Because I booked through Open Table and added notes about our celebration, we received a custom menu and a window table with a beautiful view. The food was fantastic and graciously accommodated our dietary needs. As an added bonus we received a complimentary dessert."

  • "Was surprised at how many window-side tables were available for a recent Sunday brunch. Also that the prices weren't much higher than my usual east-side, lowland, foodie brunch spots. And the food? Fully decent. Service left a bit to be desired, but once we finally got some coffee, at least 20 minutes after sitting, and ten minutes past ordering, we didn't mind the empty plates and waiter's slightly snarky vibe."

  • "We had a family celebration at Sunday brunch. Food was attractive and tasty, service was attentive. Only complaint was that our food was warm, but not hot. Realize serving 11 is a challenge so we didn't comment."
