    The food at Gracie's is very good, the service is excellent, the ambiance is lovely and the best part - you can make a reservation for brunch which in a town like Portland, gets a big thumbs up. Most places don't accept reservations and wait times can often exceed 45 minutes or more. We had the Crispy Bread Pudding French Toast and the German Pancake with a side of bacon. We also had Mimosas which came with a full champagne flute and a small carafe on the side! Our server was experienced, efficient and friendly.

    The seasonal food selections were great! And all of our dishes were delicous! Our server was kind attentive and helpful in everyway. We were celebrating a birthday with a party of seven. So I feel like we had a great selection of food. We were all so happy with our food choices that we shared the dishes with each other. Great experience all the way around!

    Gracie's is tucked in the Hotel Deluxe and for a restaurant housed in a hotel it's exceptionally good. The menu appears to change with the season, this yields a lot of great fresh produce. I liked Gracie's so much I went a few times during my stay in Portland. It's a nice place, but not too pricey. They have a great brunch/breakfast. I also suggest a trip to the Driftwood Room Bar (just across the lobby from Gracie's) It's amazing and Gracie's supplies them with all of their snacks. I'll go again next time I am in town.

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    While all our food was delicious the dinner menu is divided into three categories: appetizers, modest and substantial. We assumed this was guidance for size and, after asking the waiter, we each ordered two items. Sizes were mixed. Salad and crab cakes weren't enough for a single person while the ravioli and mushrooms together were too much. The fabulous mushrooms fed the two of us easily. So while I love the idea of portion help, the results were mixed. We have eaten here with a group for breakfast also; it's quiet which is great for ease of conversation.

    gracie's, nestled in the lobby corner of the classic hotel deluxe in southwest downtown portland (near artists rep. theatre and timbers' providence park), is quite the evening dinner find. excellent, ever rotating menu guaranteed to enchant the palette of even the most serious food geek. the driftwood room bar, next door, and gracie's, and the hotel itself, carry all the very classy ambience of 1940s hollywood elite. and quite the cultured well chosen wine list, as well as well-informed wait-staff to help steer you towards both your food & drink choices depending on what you have a craving for. pricey, yes, but worth every penny, especially to impress a business contact, a group, a family, or most importantly, a lovely date.

    the lamb soup was delicious. While tasty, need to know that the crab cakes are deep fried. razor calm salad was a miss as the tomato topping overwhelmed the cold clam on a lot of frissee (sp). We would go back, especially if attending Artists Rep!

    I've eaten at Gracie's about 4 times in the past 2 years and the food has been consistently excellent. Creative, well-done versions of Northwest Cuisine. I have never seen it crowded. I think Gracie's is substantially underrated, but am happy to keep it that way in order to avoid crowds and noise (as long as they foo enough business to stay open)

    I took my husband to Gracie's for our anniversary. We had never visted before, but I chose it for the classic feel of the restaurant. It was nice, quiet and romantic. The food was great and we really enjoyed everything we ordered . We ordered a bottle of wine, and only later learned that on Monday's it was 1/2 price day on bottles, so were dissappointed that the wait staff did not let us know this at the time we were selecting a bottle. We would have purchased a nicer bottle of wine. The wait staff were nice, but seemed very disorganized and almost tripping over themselves. For a nice atmosphere, I would expect professional behavior from wait staff, I felt that the quality of the staff was inferior. Overall a nice experience.

    Gracie's, located in the Hotel deLuxe, is fabulous. Our server, Jeanine, was smashing! Super helpful, attentive, funny. We LOVED her. The hostess was lovely, the food was incredible (I had the trout almondine, it was TO DIE), and the drinks are some of the best in the city. Moderately priced and super approachable, I recommend this establishment to everyone.

    I needed to find a place for 9 people, all from other parts of the country, including myself, to celebrate our parents' 60th wedding anniversary. Most places I looked at would not accept Open Table reservations over 6 or 8 guests. Many that I would have settled for did not have openings at the time we needed. Then I found Gracie's. It has a very elegant dining room, attentive service and a menu that accommodated many different palettes including one vegan. We got our 8:30pm reservation and although it was a slow Saturday night for Gracie's we had a terrific time. The parking in the nearby garage was validated by Gracie's as well.

    We had a birthday party for a friend, it's a really pretty place specially in the evening, we had Denver steak cause we've been told it's pretty popular, however when it got it, it was barely warm, and didn't like the taste of it at all, the sauce tasted like it had chlorine in it. Would probably come back again for a big group party, but would totally order something else!

    It seems that the prices have increased since we were there last, but, what the heck, I'm not in Portland with family that often. Each dish was perfectly prepared. Our waitress seemed a little in the weeds, but we did remember her as hostess from the time before, so perhaps she was just learning... Gracie's still rocks in our book.

    These are both hidden gems in Portland. I remember when it was the Mallory and the renovation has continued to capture the charm of 20th century elegance. The only criticism I have is that the (fabulous) Driftwood Room needs to bring back the signature and famous Cheese Popcorn as a free bar snack.

    After standing at the doorway for 10 minutes waiting for the hostess to return, we were escorted to a dirty table and told to wait by it while they cleaned it.The waitress didn't appear for 10 minutes and then it was another 10 before she returned with coffee or to take our order. In an hours time I was poured 1.5 cups of coffee and didn't get a water refill.My food was cold; my husbands was warm. The corned beef was good but the eggs were cold and potatoes were so overcooked they were rubbery.My husband had an oyster omelette-marginal at best.I If am paying top dollar for food, I expect top notch service. Will never go back here again.

    I am hesitant to write about this restaurant because I believe it is a hidden gem. We had dinner on Tuesday we took a friend from out of town she loved it. My husband's birthday is next Wednesday and he wants to go back. He hates to drive downtown, but believes Gracie's is worth the trip from Oregon City. There are lots of fine restaurants in Portland. Along with the great food there is usually lots of noise a feeling of being rushed. Gracie's is so different. It has great food in a beautiful comfortable setting. The music was from long ago and at just the right sound level. You could enjoy Frank Sinatra while still conversing with your friends. Everything we ordered was perfect. I now have a favorite restaurant in Portland.

    Located inside the deLuxe hotel, with complimentary, 2hr. valet parking, Gracie's was an actual hidden gem. It has a 1920's, Hollywood vibe and our server Scott was great. Definitely try the wild mushrooms, and if you like fish, the trout and halibut were both tasty. We also had the sweet pea ravioli, which was a delicious, fresh take on a traditional dish. Yum.

    Gracie's is fantastic for ambiance and drinks but the food offerings were sadly bit of a let down. Portions were not substantial and the food itself was tasty but nothing compared to some of the other local Portland offerings. The one exception was the delicious chocolate cake for dessert. While the dinner was a nice quiet get away for a double date I am not sure I will be visiting again if in the area.
