Diner Reviews
  • "Everything about the chart house was exceptional. The view, the food, and the staff exceeded our expectations. We will be back."

  • "Consistently good food and - of course - a really great view. They refrigerate the restaurant in the warmer months, so remember to bring a light sweater or shawl. The one criticism I have is that they are getting a bit too corporate. To be expected with a chain restaurant, but trying to sell me a "club membership" while I'm eating is a bit too much."

  • "Our waitress was outstanding! We were celebrating multiple events and she made sure we had everything we needed. She had a pleasant personality."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "It was easy making the reservation and we had a lovely window view. The service was spot on. but the food, not so much. Bland and heavy and disappointing. We'be always had good luck in the bar, however, so stick to that."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We have dined at Chart House for years but this time we noticed some things are slipping. No more warm baskets of bread. The shrimp were served on soggy bread. The waiter was friendly but kept referring to my husband and me as "ladies and gentlemen" all evening."

  • "I went to the Chart House a few years ago and I loved it. I have been back three times and, basically, 'three strikes, they're out'. The food quality has decreased substantially. The portion size is a joke. There is no value. For $35, I received the smallest steak ever. I ordered medium and it was well done. The service was terrible. My biggest pet peeve is having to ask for my beverage to be refilled. At a fine restaurant, I assume that the staff will either refill it automatically or ask if I would like a refill. This last visit, our waitress constantly reached across me to give food to my wife when there was plenty of room to walk around me. Just poor service all around. I wish I could say this was an isolated incident but no"

  • "Had requested a window table as this was a first date dinner event. The request was honored. The service by Aaron was exceptional - very polite, attentive to our needs. Would recommend the Chart House Restaurant to my friends. Have family coming to Beaverton from Florida next month and will make the Chart House a place for dinner."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Service was good, agreeable. The individualized menus were a nice touch. The drinks were weak (amaretto & soda) but flavorful (vodka-ginger beer-berry combo). Food was good, but pricey. The 3-soup combo was nice-lobster bisque best flavor, somewhat watery clam chowder was better soup. Gazpacho-I'm no cuke fan. Prime rib-I said medium rare 3 times-arrived rare. Tasty, but a little rough to cut; my knife tore rather than sliced the meat. The dinner was for a special occasion; only the view seemed to match. Still, it's nice enough, and not all that different price-wise from other hi-rep places. Found a decent bottle of red wine for under $30, but most were out of our range. Go for the view."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Chart House. All of the staff was friendly and attentive, the view out the window is gorgeous and the food was delicious! Their happy hour menu and food we saw off of it was impressive and great happy hour pricing. Bigger portions than I expected all the way around! Because we made reservations on line and stated it was our anniversary they printed an anniversary message on our menus and wrapped them up for us to take home. Such a nice touch!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at the chart house. Everything was outstanding.the wine list, the food, and the service. They had also made a menu just for us with congratulations on 10 years at the top. Excellent view of the river. We will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I had made the reservation on-line and made a note that my cousin was visiting from Denver. When our server greeted us, she asked "who is the visitor?" and made a special welcome. At the end of our meal she said she hoped my cousin had enjoyed her visit and would come back again. This personal greeting made a nice impression on us! Thank you"

  • "After receiving many recommendations for the Chart House I decided to make recommendations for my boyfriends 24th birthday. My first impressions when walking in the front door was very underwhelmed. It had more of a diner feel rather than somewhere I was about to spend $100+ on dinner. I have to say though, the staff was great and the view is amazing. The food however was lacking in every way. I ordered the teriyaki top serloin, medium rare. Not only was it not medium rare, it was burnt, dry, and chewy. The drinks were okay, however you really couldn't taste the alcohol. Overall, I was very underwhelmed with the Chart House and definitely won't be going back."

  • "We had a wonderful experience for my birthday meal at the Chart House. We both enjoyed surprisingly good wine selections by the glass and very good meals. The service was impeccable. We arrived pretty early for our meal and were seated very shortly after checking in with the hostess. Our server perfectly executed the timing on our courses; he was unassuming yet knowledgeable, and made excellent recommendations on wine pairings. We will definitely be back."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "food presentation matched the taste. the prime rib was the best I've had in years, melted in your mouth. the Lobster bisque was exceptional, would go back just for the soup.. let alone the view, service and friendly atmosphere. Great place to enjoy!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
