Since we brought our own bottle of
wine, they were attentive to get it open and poured for us. However, we didn't see our server at our table for 20 minutes after that. The menu displayed on the Open Table website and the one I was presented at the restaurant were like night and day. I received about half the menu options that I saw on OT and because of dietary restrictions, I only 2 choices my wife only had one. I would go back again however, I would not base my restaurant selection weighted heavily on the menu I see on OT."

Great service and ambiance during
my valentine dinner."

Overall I enjoyed my meal here,
but I don't think I will be returning because the food quality was not up to par with the price. First off, by the time my cheese plate arrived the two pieces of bread they gave me were gone, leaving nothing to spread the brie-style cheese on. My salad was delicious but my boyfriend's was far too bitter. I ordered the scallops for the second course and they were far too large and chewy - not soft and delicate at all. He ordered the veal which was a LOT (too much) meat. The servers were very kind but service was spotty. It took a long time for them to ask us if we were ready to order, and I often didn't have the correct silverware. It was a nice place for a date, but I think we'll try something new next time."

Went for Valentine's Day dinner
and had the "yours, mine & ours" 5 course meal. While the first and second course were delicious and the salads were ok, both the main dishes were overly salted and the chocolate cake for desert was dry. My son makes a better cake from scratch than this! Also, for a romantic dinner, I felt the server rushed the courses. Probably won't go back."

My 36 week pregnant wife and I
really enjoyed our experience! We were greeted with a smile at the door and sat in the first 3 minutes of arrival. Our server was fantastic as well as our dinner. I recommend the crab cakes, they are phenomenal. We will be telling our friends about Porto Terra as well as bring my out of state in-laws in for dinner. Very happy to have found this restaurant on this site!!"

Exceptional dining experience.
Great menu options for vegetarian and meat eaters alike. Great service and atmosphere!!"

service was slow - took a long
time to take the order and for the food to come and to get the check. there were tables around that came after us that got their food, paid and left before us. food was ok not great. ambience was good"
Dined on 1/18/2014
presentation was lovely. Duck
confit a little salty but cooked very well, pureed cauliflower with the best brussel sprouts I've ever had topped with sweet potato ribbons. Would definitely go again, the bar food that was going by looked good also - seems like a nice place to stop in after shopping."

This is the fourth year we have
celebrated a Christmas outing with our grandkids. Porto Terra never disappoints. Service and food are excellent."
Dined on 12/22/2013
We had some issues with the food
being over salted and since we were early, a little slow on attention from the waiter (perhaps a change in shift?), but they did remake the over salted pasta, and we LOVED the salad (beets and faro) and warm bread. I think we just hit them at the wrong moment; so definitely would go again before deciding if this is unusual or typical. I suspect it is an excellent restaurant!"
Dined on 12/14/2013
Overall not bad. Service was a
little slow. If they want customers other than hotel guests they should consider validating parking."
Dined on 12/7/2013
Short story is service was
extremely slow. Never received some of the food we ordered and were charged for. When we asked for help we were told our server was busy with a much larger table."

Based on Open Table reviews, our
party of 4 decided to try their special fixed price Thanksgiving dinner. When we arrived, we waited and waited for someone to greet and seat us. Other employees apologized that they didn't know where an appropriate person was and they couldn't seat us. Two of us chose the turkey option and two the lamb option. Excellent bread with tapenade was served. Our wilted spinach salads arrived swimming in dressing - too bad because the cheese was tasty and the fruit added crunch. After a very long time our entrees arrived very lukewarm. The turkey was drizzled with gloppy gravy and very dry dressing. The lamb was unevenly carved with end pieces that one might use for stew after removing excess fat and gristle. Ugg."

I had made a reservation for a
party of 15-20 and the restaurant was very accommodating. They called me twice to confirm which is really nice. The waitress was sweet and they all made sure we had the correct silverware for our meals. I've eaten here twice and both times were with a large group of people."

Who knew that a great restaurant
could be found in a hotel? Excellent cuisine, great service and a great location."

We wanted a very nice dinner prior
to attending the Symphony. The hostess and waitress were aware of what time we needed to be at the symphony and accommodated our needs, so we were able to enjoy great wine and a wonderful meal and still make it to the symphony on time."
Dined on 11/2/2013
The hostess was surprised that we
wanted to be seated. Didn't asked about Opentble nor gave the chance. We were originally helped by a man in a suit then after some time a waitress took over after our appetizers were finished. Later, another couple comes in, promptly seated, and even asked if they had an Opntble reservation and they said no. We order, the table next to us orders, we all get our food at the same time. This is when the service diverged. After dinner it took 15 minutes for anyone to notice us and to clean our table and order dessert. The other table that came in later was promptly helped then had Tiramisu. I should have treated this place like it was in Italy (the other table didn't need to but future diners may need to)."

This is one of my favorite
restaurants for a business lunch. The food is excellent and the wait-staff is attentive."
Dined on 9/30/2013
Overpriced , lacked any atmosphere
basically open to the hotel lobby , not ideal for an intimate dinner. Food was reasonable but didn't reflect the price. Steelhead was cooked perfect so kudos to the chef. Valet parking was a rip off , parked for 1hr 5 min and was charged $16 , the attendant even had the audasity to ask if I wanted change from my $20 ?? To top it off my car was still in the street space that we had left it parked in for the valet, so it was never moved. Will not be returning or recommending this experience to anyone"
Dined on 9/27/2013
I arrived there early for my
reserved seat and they happily accommodated me and made sure I was comfortable and had plenty of coffee, etc. The waiting staff was very friendly and helpful. The Salmon was perfect. I would return without qualms."
Dined on 9/17/2013
I usually don't dine downtown for
lunch but found myself there so I checked Open Table for suggestions. Service was prompt and attentive, fresh pasta of the day was very good, tomato soup with basil was full of flavor. My only minor complaint was I thought the wines by the glass prices were a little spendy so I passed on those. All in all a nice lunch experience."
Dined on 9/12/2013
I had posted a review previously
where I had a not so great lunch experience at Porto Terra. The manager contacted me and apologized for my experience and offered to buy me and a guest lunch. I was really impressed by that gesture and took him up on it....thanks Brad! Our lunch experience this round was fabulous! They treated us so well and I truly felt valued. We had delicious crab cakes ( flavor was great, love the capers, not quite as temperature hot as I like), tomato soup...thick and tasty, the Cavolo salad with steelhead (steelhead was cooked perfectly and the salad was huge....had the rest for dinner), the bolognese...my husband could not stop raving about how tasty this dish was, and they sent us out the door with dessert! THANKS!!!"

It's a hotel restaurant, so my
expectations were low, but everything surprised me. The service was excellent, the menu had many options (including vegetarian), the food was fresh and the prices were comparably to any other restaurant in Portland."
Dined on 8/25/2013
One word sums it up. I was
surprised about their menu and some of the unique items. I ended up ordering a burger at an Italian restaurant because of their ground steak and pancetta burger with truffle oil. Amazing!"
Dined on 8/18/2013
I made a lunch reservation through
Open Table for myself. The place was pretty empty and I opted to sit outside. I received water and a menu pretty quickly but then waited a really long time to place my order. When I did get my order taken it was by the hostess not the server. I had to ask for wine list as that was not brought out with anything else. When lunch arrived, the salad was greatly over dressed. The wine was good yet a bit over priced. Then I waited and waited and waited and no one came to give me my bill. So, I finally figured they were not going to come and headed in to pay at the front hostess station. For a supposedly upscale restaurant, I did not enjoy my experience and will not return."

Quiet, comfortable, hotel
restaurant with friendly, welcoming staff. Nice bar environment. Our cocktails were quality, nicely mixed drinks. Food was unremarkable."
Dined on 8/4/2013
Nice lunch at one of a handful of
outdoor tables on a beautiful summer afternoon. The three of us ordered entree-sized salads, all of which were beautifully conceived and presented."
Dined on 7/26/2013
We didn't want to fight the crowds
at trendy Portland restaurants, and we found this near our hotel. We were able to bring our own wine for a tasting fee of $20. The lasagna was very good - my only complaint was eating too much! Good safe bet if you have a group of hard to please eaters who like Italian."
Dined on 7/21/2013
A friend and I visited Porto
before a local show. She had the Halibut and I Lasagna. It was an excellent experience from the time We entered the Restaurant until We left. I made reservations and It was not a problem. Will tell all friends in Hood River to come and try Porto Terra!!"
Dined on 6/23/2013
Enjoyed the dinning the Halibut
and the Steelhead was some of the best we have ever had."
Dined on 6/22/2013
One block from Portland's "Living
Room" - Pioneer Court House Square and short walks to corporate HQ's and governmental offices and downtown hotels - this Italian is uber convenient. The Gnocchi and bread were excellent, but the salad was mildly disappointing. A great place for an after work meal, or if you visiting on business."
Dined on 6/19/2013
Had not been here before, decided
to take a chance during Portland dining month. Was not encouraged when we arrived, as room looks like fancied up diner. Was surprised when food arrived though, as it was very well prepared."
Dined on 6/14/2013
Great food and service. Staff was
very attentive and courteous and pleasant. Food was very very good."

Perfect for dinner before events
at the Schnitz. Got the evening off to a lovely start."
Dined on 6/1/2013
While I was not particularly blown
away, I was not dissatisfied at all, very friendly staff and good food at a fair price."
Dined on 5/19/2013
The food is great. Marissa, the
executive chef continues to amaze us. Don't miss this place. The Bolognese is not traditional but is out of this world. The Tuscan tomato soup is fantastic."

Porto Terra is our 'go to'
restaurant when we want to dine out downtown. The food is consistently good and the wait staff is friendly and very efficient. We always sing the praises of this restaurant to our friends and family!"
Dined on 5/9/2013
Was expecting a higher level of
sophistication based on other reviews. Just an average meal in an average setting."
Dined on 5/4/2013
Porto Terra is an exceptional
restaurant. Maybe people shy away from this gem because it's in a hotel (the Hilton Portland Executive Tower) but that is their loss. We went on a Wednesday evening and ours was one of only three tables occupied. We found understated luxury in the dining room, great service from every member of their staff, and, most importantly, great food. All four courses were delicious and the portions generous. We know there are a lot of wonderful restaurant choices in Portland but this one needs to be higher on your priority list. It is a standout (and the prices are more than reasonable for an upscale restaurant)."
Dined on 5/1/2013
This is a great place. The food is
wonderful and very consistent. The Bolognese is the best we have ever tasted. The Tuscan Soup is to die for. This is a hide away gem"
