Diner Reviews
  • "We were in Portland for a day trip and chose to dine at the Portland City Grill for lunch largely because the restaurant has a panorama view of the city. The restaurant was not busy at all at 1pm. Despite many empty tables by the window, we were set to one next to the kitchen. My husband had the steelhead which was delicious, I selected the Oregon Sole partially because it said on the menu that it would be "Accompanied with a unique dessert selection". It turned out that this unique dessert selection was two tiny cookies...! I think a good dining experience depends heavily on how you are treated. Perhaps the service staff put all their energies into the dinner serving, they look sleepy and were unwelcoming at lunchtime."

  • "Been to the City Grill before and enjoyed the food. This time the menu preparations were not very inviting.one of us had the fish (Halibut )which was very fresh and cooked perfect but a cauliflower purée sauce just didn't entice one's taste buds. I chose the rack of Lamb which had some sort of a fennel glaze.. The lamb was cooked perfectly however there was not a hint of the fennel glaze. The potatoes were over salted as is usual in all restaurants. I have not figured out why chefs feel the need to salt things to death. When one is sensitive to salt in makes them uneatable. On the plus side the shrimp tempura came to the table perfectly crisp and not soggy. The meat and fish were cooked perfect but the preparations need improvement"

  • "It was not a topical night for the wait staff.... 5 for dinner, 2 - dinners not correctly prepared and the best part of going to PCG is the cookies and ice cream for dessert, and our waitress forgot to order them for us....... even though mistakes were made this is still one of the best restaurants in Portland."

  • "I must come here every time I come to Portland. Amazing view from the 30th floor. An awesome bar with live music and a great dining area. Dress nice or casual. Food is absolutely out of this world, bone-in smoked pork chop is one of the best things I have ever eaten. Cant wait to go again."

  • "Stunning view, good food, good service, bar is very noisy. 30 minute wait for a window table on a busy Saturday 5pm doesn't seem too bad."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Appetizers were good. Salads not so good (too much going on in the beet salad; red cabbage in a Caeser - really?) steaks were slightly above average quality (El Gauch is better at this price point). Desserts mixed. Would rate 3.5 overall if I could - it's not quite a 4 star place in my mind. Good thing it's 30 stories above Portland..."

  • "Great food, great service, and great views of the city of Portland. We have celebrated many milestones here, from my 21st birthday to getting engaged at this restaurant. We are now celebrating our 9 year wedding anniversary and every time we come here for any special occasion the service is always great. They decorated our table for our anniversary and provided free dessert. The food is always amazing. Will continue to celebrate many more occasions at Portland City Grill."

  • "Our reservation was at 4. We arrived a 3:55 and were told we had to wait until 4 to be seated. When 4 arrived and we were seated the entire dining room was practically empty. We have never had to wait before and will not do it again - it was ridiculous. When our waiter told us the specials we thanked him. We then heard 2 different waiters each vocalize different specials (so, 3 different specials). What's the deal with that? We love PCG and have always had fabulous service. This time, however, has left us wondering if we were in the twilight zone."

  • "Portland is a "foodie" city which to me means experimental. After researching the restaurants in the area I decided to go with a more standard menu and a wonderful view. PCG did not disappoint and was one of our Portland highlights. The bar scene is vibrant but the separate dining room is calm and relatively quiet. Our meals were excellent and the service is top notch. Highly recommended unless you want chocolate dipped goose liver - for that you will have to go somewhere else."

  • "Food was very good--had steak and sole. Only problem encountered was the amount of salt and sauce on side dishes such as the fries and beans. Next time we will ask for less salt and sauce. View was outstanding and service was great."

  • "My girlfriend and I went here expecting a very nice restaurant and amazing food, and we were pleased at this. But the restaurant was extremely loud, so much so that it was difficult to have a simple conversation."

  • " Dinner at Portland City Grill was outstanding, as the food was delicious and the service was most attentive. The incredible city view from this 30th floor restaurant is awesome, and one can see much of Portland as well as the mountain range to the east. The reasonably priced happy hour was a terrific way to proceed our dinner. My party enjoyed the fillet mignon, rack of lamb, beef short-ribs, fresh fish as well as numerous delicious deserts. Portland City Grill was the highlight dinner of our week in the city."

  • "We advised that we were celebrating a special occasion when the reservation was made. We were seated in a booth at the back of the room. The window tables were all full, but we would have waited in the bar for one had we been given the opportunity. The room was quite noisy, perhaps because of our table location. The food was only just o.k. The stacked salad (their version of a wedge) had a good dressing, but way too much of it. The scallop dish was tasty, but small considering the price. The salmon was overpowered by the spices used. On the plus side , a complimentary small piece of cake was served. Our server was very nice and efficient. We'll probably just go for a drink next time and hope for a view from the bar."

  • "Portland City Grill has been a delicous Highlight at the Last Night of our 3 weeks Trip though Pacific NW. We are traveling from Germany and Followed the recommendation of a friend. The Atmosphere was very relaxed and the view fantastic! We chose the filet mignon and it came out perfectly with fresh veggies. Service was polite and happy to answer all our questions about the English menue. Only the Espresso was not good. The waiter explained it was coming from a Pot and Took it of the bill. Restaurant really recommendable. Reservation necessary also on Monday nights. Ask for table with Nice view!"

  • "Portland City Grill has some great food and great service; unfortunately I don't think the lighting helped the ambience of the restaurant. I know they keep the lights dim to give it a romantic feel but it was a little too dark . I had made reservations and requested a window seat and they advised that it was not possible. Also for the amount of food it seemed a little over priced. I would still go back though....."

  • "We made a reservation through open table for my friend's birthday dinner. In the reservation I had mentioned we would be celebrating a birthday, but not really expecting anything from it. When we got to our table they had birthday confetti on the table, a signed birthday card and birthday dessert. The service was above and beyond, making it very special for mj friend. Of course, the food was amazing and had a great wine selection."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We go to City Grill a couple times a year for dinner. The menu is ok,steakhouse fare mostly, definitely overpriced (think El Goucho/Ruth's Chris). I think a lot of people splurge for special occasions or take people from out of town for the views. $45 for a fishy piece of Halibut seemed a bit over the top. We find it smarter to take out of town friends for a happy hour and then have reservations somewhere else. Dinner with wine can easily top $100/person plus tip for ok food. The service can be spotty, sometimes great and sometimes very slow as was the case this time. Let's just say it was a 3 hour and 20 minute dining experience. We also noticed two different times at tables there was breakage by people clearing glasses."

  • "We were seated promptly, but were surprised to find the table decorated for our anniversary which we were celebrating. That made the visit seem personal and my wife felt like it was special. We had a great meal, very well prepared and tasty. We will come again."

  • "Best view in Portland, service beyond expectations, unbelievably delicious food. We're "regulars" to the "old Portland" standards (restaurants) and had forgotten about this gem so we were surprised at the quality. We plan to be back (possibly even for what looked like a very up-beat happy hour). Even the parking was easy - under the building - and validated."

  • "The restaurant made my mother's 90th birthday really special. There was birthday confetti on the table along with a card. The meal was awesome and they brought a special dessert for my mothers birthday. This was an amazing celebration and experience, I'm so glad we picked this restaurant. The view on the 30th floor is outstanding!"

  • "I took my family here this past week for my wife's birthday and it was outstanding. Amazing dinner with excellent service. Although we didn't have a window seat, (which are stunning) the view was incredible at sunset and my kids were thrilled to see the "Happy Birthday" confetti scattered on the table for their mom's special day. We had dinner on a Thursday night and the restaurant was full and had lots of activity. It was a bit loud but made for a nice energy. Highly recommended."

  • "There was a time about 8 or 9 years ago when we were regulars here. All out of town guests were brought, even rented a private room for gatherings. Over time, things just haven't been kept up. The view is excellent as is the service, but rust rings in the sink, bathrooms are dirty in a dingy way, food seems under seasoned. Getting rid of the sushi chef is a bummer, cocktails from the bar were ok. I had the short ribs, husband had a filet. Both meals were acceptable, but not wonderful. Unfortunately Portland City Grill is no longer an exceptional place to go, it's now just an expensive chain restaurant with a good view..."

  • "Beautiful scenery as we peered over Portland from 30 stories high. The service was outstanding as our waiter was attentive and never hurried. The fish was terrific starting with a simple crab and shrimp cocktail and then moving to a delicious salmon that was perfected cooked with a very tasty rub. All excellent."

  • "I usually go to one restaurant with a view when I travel to new cities, and sometimes you sacrifice food quality for the view and atmosphere. This was not the case with Portland City Grill. The food was delicious, and a little pricy, but reasonable. The service was great. The views were spectacular, and there was a piano player in the bar area. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!"
