Portland City Grill
Special AniversaryI can not think of a time over the last 38 years of marriage that we had a more wonderful anniversary dinner. The Salmon was perfect. The mushroom risotto was out of this world. The coconut cream pie and creme brulee were superb. My onl recommendation would be to try Portland City Grill for lunch. You be glad you did.
Thank you for a great time..6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThursday nite business dinnerMain dining room, elevated platform our table for 5 people. Very noisy at the 7:30 pm seating time.
We could barely hear our waitress talk about the menu, and specials on the menu.
The food and service was excellent. Many tempting appetizers and entrees.
Calimari was great, as recommended.
All 5 members of our party enjoyed their entree ranging from steak to seafood.
The cioppino was excellent.
We had no room for desert.
The wine list for a restaurant of this calibre was mediocre. The Oregon Pinot selection was sparse, and average.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as usual!I can't recall ever having a bad lunch experience at the Portland City Grill. The staff is always attentive, but not hovering, and the view is absolutely terrific, even on a hazy day!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining experienceWe enjoyed every second of our trip to the Portland City Grill. The food was excellent, the service was too notch and the atmosphere was one that was very suiting to having a nice meal in the city.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryAlthough it was Wednesday night the restaurant and bar were still very busy and still very noisy. We had to wait awhile for a table with a view (although it was requested when the reservation was made) but it was worth it. Overall a very good experience.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best views of theOne of the best views of the city. We had the salmon on a bed of mushroom risotto with pesto. It couldn't have been any better! The bread was served warm, and they offered premium wine for $5 a glass. We will definitely be back.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great!I have been here many times and this visit I took a friend who was visiting from Orlando. We were lucky to have been seated next to a window. Great photos were taken. Portland City Grill never disappoints me.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove ItGreat views overlooking the river and the downtown area. Great food, Great service.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, had theFood was excellent, had the crab cakes very good.

Spectacular view, great food and wonderful wine list6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA most excellent evening!The parking is easy! The view amazing! The service over the top! The food escorts you to heavens gates! If you do your part as a knowledgable patron, The Portland Grill will do more than their part to make your dining experience an especially memorable one!!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat everything!Service, view, and food was fantastic! Definitely a MUST-GO-TO for Portland visitors. They even decorated the table for your special occasion, giving you that personal feel to your reservation. Amazing view too, definitely worth the wait for a window seat.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMdinnerI was eating dinner prices are not matching the food you can eat cheaper and better at different place. Service bad if you asking questions about the food they give you a funny look. Maybe buffet will be better. The only good think its a view!!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Prom Fairy TaleI took my girlfriend to the Portland City Grill for our prom dinner, and had the absolute best time. The dinner set the tone and the mood for the rest of the night. We had a great view and excellent service. The food was magnificent! We felt like royalty that night, which came true when we became Prom King and Queen, but it wouldn't have been possible without the city grill giving us a world class meal. Thank you so much!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat View over PortlandThe food is good, the service very good and the view excellent (if the weather is good). In regards to price, this restaurant is a bit on the upper side. Other places might offer a better value if you just take the food into account. However, you pay for the location and from time to time it is worth it.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMalmost perfectThe food was good, the view was spectacular, and the service was fast. In fact, it was too fast. Our waitress brought the next thing before we were finished with the first one. We felt rushed. However, we should've spoken up. We were celebrating a birthday, and they did make it memorable. We would -- and will -- go back.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our one year weddingIt was our one year wedding anniversary, first time being there and we were very impressed with the service!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service are alwaysFood and service are always outstanding. You really can't beat the ambiance and view at any other restaurant in Portland.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect AnniversaryWhat a fabulous experience we had for our anniversary at PCG! Excellent service, table next to the window with a gorgeous view overlooking the city and river, and we were served a delicious dessert on the house to help us celebrate. Thank you so much for making this a memorable milestone/date! !5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely place to dineThis is one of our favorite places! Normally I would rate the food as outstanding, but at this visit, we found the preparation of the food we ordered to be less than the high standard the restaurant has set in the past (steak and potato only warm, chicken overdone). Nevertheless, the food was delicious, the view lovely, the service excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, Poor SeviceFrom Seattle, several people from Portland recommended the restaurant. Good views and ambience, excellent service from the server, poor service from the waiter. Had to ask for refill on adult beverages, no check to insure that meal was satisfactory, poor attention to the table. Josh the server was a joy. He was personable, helpful and concerned about our well being. Recommended the manager that he should offer his server a job as a waiter and release the waiter that was supposed to be responsible for our table. Might dine there again.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest view in portland greatBest view in portland great place to entertain special guest and celebrate special occasions5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCalamazingBest calamari I have ever had!
No rush dining!
and that view!!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful 30th Anniversary dinnerMy husband and I enjoyed a great anniversary dinner last night at the Portland City Grill. Service was great and accommodating, food was delicious and the view stupendous. I'm glad I decided to go there.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a Special OccassionMy husband and I had celebrated our 1st year wedding anniversary. We had requested a window seat when we made reservations and were able to get it.. Our table was decorated with tiny hearts and words that said "Happy Anniversary" along with a card that said "thank you for celebrating with us" with signatures from a few staff members. It was a nice touch. The view from our table was awesome. We were able to see the river and a bit of Mount Hood. The service was excellent. The dinner was a bit overpriced, but was still very good. For dessert, we were able to get a small chocolate cake for free because it was our anniversary and it tasted delicious! I would definitely come back for another special occasion.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't judge it from the outsideWhile located in a sterile-looking corporate monolith, Portland City Grill - 30 floors up - has its own ambiance. Its stunning city views have the tourists wandering around the perimeter to take photos, while knowing locals seem to concentrate on the buzz in the large bar area. But the real draw is (or should be) the food. As a test, I tried an approach I almost never use - a combination of seafood (fresh, wild king salmon) and steak (top sirloin). The kitchen knows how to treat both, tenderly and with attention to what you specify. The sides were deftly seasoned. The restaurant had been recommended enthusiastically by a Portland resident I had met back home in a highly-rated Boston restaurant, and I was grateful for the tip.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGuests from Texas.Nothing like it in Fort Worth! Views are spectacular, service is prompt, food is delicious, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pick!Great staff, fantastic food, defiantly recommend and will be going back!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, food, and serviceWith these great attributes comes a high price though5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my partner there forI took my partner there for it anniversary, and we both feel in love with the place. It was great speedy service, and very high quality food. We are planning already for the next time to come back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Portland RestaurantOverall a great dining experience. Very very noisy. Had to speak too loud for my guest to hear. Steak could have been a better quality of meat.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMsooo goodWe had the special it was a dry aged beef on a bed of polenta. It was the best meal I have had in a long time.
I am a very good cook so my husband and I can be dissapointed when we eat out. This meal was a 5 star.
The service is always great one of our favorite places.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Celebration Success!!The perfect place to celebrate my sister's birthday. We were able to reserve a window table which overlooked the river. Our waitress gave concise descriptions of each menu item and was very attentive throughout the meal. We all were very pleased with each course especially the salmon which was perfectly prepared, moist and not over cooked.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI had an enjoyable experienceI had an enjoyable experience as a first timer at PCG. The food was excellent. We love calimari and the kung pao calimari appetizer was delicious with the right amount of spice!!!! The staff was very friendly and the view was excellent. We will be back!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy boyfriend and I went toMy boyfriend and I went to Portland City Grill to celebrate his birthday and it was exceptional.

All staff were patient, friendly, and timely. I would recommend anyone going out for an anniversary dinner (like I was) or a lovely "just because" date to make your someone feel special, to choose Portland City Grill.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view was exceptional.The view was exceptional. Our waitress was informative and enthusiastic. Our food and drinks were very very good. We will definitely visit again if we have the opportunity.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWE LOVE PCG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Portland City Grill never disappoints. We were a party of 6 and everyone loved their food. The steaks were especially rockin' this evening. Melt in our mouth goodness. Cocktails were great, wine suggestions were spot on and the creme brule is always to die for. If you are looking for a place to celebarate a special occasion or impress out of town visitors...this is your place. Side note: Portland doesn't offer a better view than from the 30th floor of "Big Pink".5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent! BeautifulFood was excellent! Beautiful view of Portland from every seat. Waiter was fantastic. Can't wait to return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty meal with good service!Fantastic steak, excellent service and great views!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything I was told it was...Head to the bar first to see if you can find a spot at the window, if you find one have dinner there. Dining room is nice but it is kinda of a luck of the draw if you get a window or not. Food is very good and there's a lot of it. My only complaint was feeling stuffed after dinner. Views are amazing from the bar and dining room. I had been told it was dressy---but true to Portland form I spotted one or two guys in shorts...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMost restaurants with a fabulousMost restaurants with a fabulous view are often lacking in other areas. Not so with the Portland City Grill. We found the food and service to be perfect. Could not have asked for a more enjoyable meal.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the Portland CityWe enjoyed the Portland City Grill.

Happy and highly recommended!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience.This was a very important lunch meeting for me. The setting was right and the wait staff was excellent. Our gal, which I can't remember her name, she was great. The food was really good even though I had a very nervous appetite, my guest loved the choice I made which "open table" helped me find. Will definitely use again on a business trip.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date night spotMy wife and I went to Portland City Grill for our twelfth anniversary. We lucked out with a fantastic window seat. The food was wonderful, and I would have licked my plate if I could have gotten away with it. It is not a cheap date, but if you like like good food, you certainly get what you pay for.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMfantastic foodthe scenery is great with views of the entire city, but the food was incredible.
