went for a late valentine's day dinner and it was quiet and nice. a beautiful view of the waterfront.
attentive waiter. cool lounge/bar with a fancy fireplace.
my pork chop was a bit fatty and way too much food. seemed like a bit of a waste.
otherwise the food was outstanding! we enjoyed our meal and will be back.

We have been to this restaurant
We have been to this restaurant on several occasions. The service has been very good and the food presentation and preparation has been exquisite! We without a doubt will be visiting the restaurant on our next visit to Portland.

The service staff was very friendly and very helpful. They made our experience at H50 even better. This was our second time there and we will come back just because the service and food was so great.

Hidden Gen in Hotel 50!
The presentation was beautiful and the food delicious. The view, very nice and the service friendly and prompt. It is a hidden gem in a city of many great restaurants but so worth the reputation of many others. Can't wait to try happy hour.

When we first got to our table
When we first got to our table the restaurnact was really cool. We asked if the heat could be turned up and we did finally get some heat. Evidently the area where the dinning is not energy efficient. The windows appear to be single paine. Other than that the food was great as was the service. We would come back again...when the weather warms up. I think the restaurant should invest in a better climate control so guests are more comfortable.

We stopped in for a not quick
We stopped in for a not quick but not too leisurely dinner before going to the theater on Saturday. We let the waiter know that as we sat down, and he paced our meal perfectly--we were in and out in 90 minutes which was just right. We had a living social deal so we ordered off the chef's menu and were very happy with everything we ordered and also with the special bites that came compliments of the chef. We'll be back!

awesome food, service and atmosphere! I was very surprised at how good this restaurant was. It also looks like a good place for happy hour.

This was an excellent choice
This was an excellent choice for Easter Brunch. Our family loved it! More modern selections than standard hotel type brunch buffets. The seafood was wonderful, I would like to have had standard seafood utensils available such as shell crackers and petit forks. The staff was attentive and friendly. It was a lovely sunny, spring day to have such a wonderful view of the waterfront. We will definitely return. Thank you!

Easter Weekend in Portland
We enjoyed the Easter Brunch which was outstanding, the food was really quite amazing considering the cost, the seafood was very fresh, the meat offerings were very tender and flavorful, the breakfast offerings were delicious and the cakes decadently magnificent. The staff and servers were professional and unobtrusive. The bar was one of our favorites, friendly, helpful staff, good selection of drinks and incredible food offerings. Our whole experience was truly incredible. We look forward to our next stay. Well done H50 Bistro & Bar, you made our stay in Portland even more special.

I have a few different food
I have a few different food allergies and this amazing creative chef altered the menu to meet my dietary needs. The food is always superb and is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland. The service staff are always attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the food on the menu. They also serve very creative tasty cocktails as well. The first time I went there the chef made a complete entree that was not on the menu for my vegan friend that was out of this world. I have highly recommended this place to my friends and family.

We used our living social
We used our living social coupon to try this restaurant and it was a terrific experience. The food was sublime and the service from the wait staff was excellent. We were there fairly early so it wasn't crowded but we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. We ate an amazing meal while we watched the activity along the waterfront. We will certainly return and I would not hesitate to recommend this restauant.

There's more than you think...
Most places you get what you pay for, but at H50 you get MORE than you pay for (or realize) when you order. Your entree will come with an amuse bouche (French for happy mouth) a small taste to tempt your palate. Then after dinner, whether you've ordered dessert, you will get another special sweet bite at the end. This is truly a surprise of a gem, and something that compliments the delicious cocktails, appetizers, entrees, and desserts.

I can't for the life of me understand why this restaurant is such a well-kept secret. The food is terrific, as is the service, we had a great, large table at a big picture window overlooking the river and park. It is quiet, lovely ambience with lts of couches nad comfortable seating if you go there for drinks or to wait for someone, etc. A little pricey, but worth it~

Fun Mother's Day Brunch
We had a great time. Our son got the steak and eggs and was in heaven. Mom got a mimosa and I had the best eggs benedict of my life. I am planning to return.

Gem with a great view
Great view right on the river, modern decor, great food.

Great service, good food!
Our waitress was fantastic. we came on a living social coupon and had a special menu. the beet salad was excellent. we had risotto and steak with bleu cheese potatoes- both were very good- very rich. the creme brulee was different and really good as well. Over all the meal was worth what we paid, the ambiance would be better at night- it is in a hotel, and I think if you were staying in the area, would be a great choice. I would come back here again and try HH and drinks next time- the bar looked fun.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I went here for our date night. The food was fresh seasonal NW cuisine. It was outstanding from the salad to the dessert. The wait staff were very efficient and accommodating. They also explained each dish thoroughly and the presentation was beautiful. We will definitely go back again soon.

Great food; great service; great ambiance! Enough said.

Jason the waiter is always very knowledgeable and attentive. The food for the prix fixed dinner was delicious. Good choices. We always enjoy this location for a dinner downtown.

5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to dinner not knowing what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. Everything was just perfect. We had absolutely flawless service! From the very beginning we enjoyed every bite of this perfectly prepared meal. It was so fresh tasting and flavorfull. We kept asking ourselves how come we haven't been here before and when are we coming back. I had the best steak! I look forward to returning to this hidden gem in our city. I will recommend h5o to my friends and family without hesitation.

Read some bad reviews on this restaurant but had a living social voucher so had to go. Really glad I did. I thought everything was delicious from the appetizer to soup/ salad to the entree. The service was impeccable from start to finish! Have no idea what experience others had but we had nothing but good.

Food was fantastic! Drinks
Food was fantastic! Drinks were interesting and delicious - I recommend the Unrooted. We were there for dining month, but it would be a great happy hour place with a date.

Strawberry Soup & Other Delights
My husband and I were vacationing in Portland and were intrigued by the Restaurant Month price fix menu featuring strawberry soup and whiskey mousse. We were not disappointed! We also had an amuse bouche featuring raw tuna, delicious cocktails, brisket, roast chicken with Moroccan spices, and the wonderful soup with pistachio garnish and the delicious dessert (also garnished with pistachios and banana chip.) Our waiter was terrific and we had a view of the Rose Parade floats and the river-front carnival. A short walk from the light rail stop! The bar was nice too - low price apps and good drinks.

Very nice evening
We have been to H50 several times and enjoyed every visit. The food is always delicious, inventive and nicely presented. Free downtown parking. The dining room has a very nice view of the Willamette River and the river walk. The restaurant is somewhat undiscovered, and on the week nights we have been there, it has been very quiet.
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dining before theater
Unique table wear, above street view towards river. Presentation was excellent. Menu limited but what was available was great. Staff was sensitive to our theater schedule and provided service at a rate matching our schedule. We dined on a Thursday evening, so dining room was not full so can't comment on the sound level.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great all the way through
From pre-dinner drinks, through the appetizers and into dessert, everything was great. Food, service, table, everything!

Breakfast with a view
H50 has a decent breakfast selection on their menu. There are some vegetarian options that are well worth a try as well. Sit by the window and enjoy the view of the Willamette. The lunch items are great as well (don't be afraid... try those brussel sprouts). With close proximity to downtown H50 is worth a try if its your first time. Prices are moderate.

Great place for group lunch
This restaurant has a great ambiance. They have a private
dining room. Good for groups of 6-8 people.
Loved the service and their dishes are really pretty.
Has free private parking if dining!

Appt was not necessary after all.
We were the first to be seated in the dining area so having a reservation was not necessary. Food and service were giood. Nice to look out at the waterfront.

Hidden Foodie Gem
I have to say this is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland. The service is always amazing. I enjoy that the menu is always changing and it has what ever is fresh in season. The food is always beautifully plated. The cocktails are also delicious and very unique using different infusions and bitters. I really enjoy that this place also caters to my allergies of gluten and dairy. And the chef will also tweak items on the menu to accomadate my dietary restrictions.

A Hidden Gem
We weren't sure what to expect from this hotel restaurant but we were extremely pleased. We had a fabulous dinner while looking at a beautiful view of Mt Hood. The service was excellent. This was a great find and we would go back!

Good view, friendly and accommodati
Good view, friendly and accommodating wait staff, great place for a small corporate gathering, lots of natural light in the dining area is very nice. Love the food presentation. Many options to choose from.

I was so surprised - fantastic
I really didn't expect H50 to be so great. It was fantastic - from the food to the ambience. Hardly anyone was there. I don't think anyone knows about it. I hope it stays in business because it's my new favorite place.

Nice and quiet
We stayed at Hotel Rose for the weekend and ate dinner and breakfast. Great food, friendly service and nice view of the park and river. We will stay here and definitely eat here again!
