Some coworkers wanted to go
Some coworkers wanted to go out for "a few drinks", so I decided to up-level the conversation and proposed Hall Street Grill. It was a big hit. The group that just wanted a couple of beers after work found plenty to drink from HSG's well-chosen taps, and in at least one case the allure of the appetizers I ordered (such as the saffron arancini) they ended up having some eats after all. On this occasion I forewent the steaks and seafood, going instead for the wonderful ravioli and the legendary bleu cheese salad. All cooked to perfection and impeccably presented. Just one more night at one of the best restaurants in greater Portland. Bravo!

The menu was unique and creative.
The menu was unique and creative. It was well executed and delicious. I didn't think it would be this good, because its in Beaverton. I was happily surprised and we're planning in going back to try some of the other dishes.
I had the pancetta wrapped prawns with spicy grits. Just got back from a trip from New Orleans and these grits could be served in NOLA! The aberskivers (sp?) we're fantastic and I strongly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.
Service was pleasant, helpful and friendly.

Monday's are discount wine night
My wife and I took her mother and her aunt to dinner. I had a Bavette steak (not sure I spelled that correctly). It was very good. We tried the lamb gnochie starter too. We had a domain droughin pinot noir bottle at half price - yeah Mondays. I think our guests liked their steaks too.

The menu is fabulous as usual. The last couple of times I visited, I found the dishes very salty....as in the first thing you taste is salt instead of the food. I really enjoy the restaurant and go here often.

Always love Hall Street Grill
Always love Hall Street Grill and have been enjoying it for nearly 30 years. My husband and I met there 30 years ago on a blind date and just this last week celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary there.

Hall Street has long been one of our west side favorites providing downtown quality without the drive. For this occasion we purchased an offer on living social and we weren't disappointed. The menu was an exclusive offering and everything was great. The server, Sundiata was another gem. He was probably the most dynamic server we have ever had; a self described "cork dork," great knowledge of all of the food preparations, and a great sense of humor. Hall Street never disappoints.

Attended Hall Street for mother's day with family. Server Matt was great, food was timely and delicious, overall service was top notch. If you have not eaten yet at Hall Street you are simple not in the know.

Great place to dine!
The Hall Street Grille was awesome. The selection of food was great and our server made the whole experience a wonderful one. The parking lot is always packed, so it may feel like your squeezing into a spot. Truthfully, the packed parking lot was the only negative thing that I could say about the restaurant. The atmosphere, menu choices, the food itself was great and I would recommend other couples to dine here.

Food was amazing and our server, Joseph, was fantastic!

Very Attentive Server and Chef
When informed that one member of our party has a gluten and dairy intolerance, out server coordinated the menu/recipe content changes with the chef to produce a very tasty, creative dinner. Obviously, this restaurant has a chef who with a creative flair and willingness to address special needs even when it is at the height of the dinner hour.

Went for Brunch on Sunday AM. Almost only ones in there. We received lots of superb attention from the staff. Food was delicious. All 3 kids enjoyed it, too.

Still a great place to celebrate
I've dined at Hall Street Grill many times over the last 18 years and have never been disappointed. Old favorites are still on the menu as well as interesting new choices. Service is consistently very good. I will continue to patronize and recommend this neighborhood gem!

Fantastic Father's Day brunch!
Fantastic Father's Day brunch! I've never been let down by Hall Street! Thank you again for a wonderful meal.

Hall Street Grill has been a Beaverton favorite for many years, and the establishment has definitely earned that title. Every detail is noted, enhanced and so your dining experience can only be the best.

Service made the meal!
Our waiter was so attentive yet respectful of our desire to have a long dinner to catch up amongst friends. The food was fabulous, all around a wonderful birthday dinner celebration!

Dining here has always been
Dining here has always been a good experience. We enjoy the atmosphere, the food and service (we've had Matt several times and he's great) My only "issue" is-a few nights ago, we brought friends from out of town for dinner. One of our friends is in a wheelchair. There is no convenient "physically challenged" entrance into the restaurant. We had to come in through the back door and maneuver our way through the kitchen and back rooms to get into the dining area. The wheels got caught in the kitchen runner and it just was not the most pleasant (or safest) way to enter. The staff was very helpful, although I'm sure inconvenienced by this also. FYI - being an"upscale" establishment it's a bit "off-putting" to have to enter this way. Thank you!

Great Team Lunch
I took three of my employees here for lunch, and they just went on and on about how good it was.
If you're taking people out, this is a huge step up from something like Stanford's, and the prices are quite reasonable.

Pork belly reuben is pretty
Pork belly reuben is pretty awful and fatty, but the rest of the menu is quite great. Good place to take guests.

you can count Hall Street!
Always predictably good, service and food way above average!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were not expecting this to be such a great place. the service was top notch, clever, and spot on. Food quality was excellent as well. It was quiet for a Saturday night and we were allowed to take our time and enjoy. Wild Boar Scrapple and creme brûlée are must haves! Wonderful assortment of Oregon Pinots and even a Maderia BTG for dessert. Reasonable prices, we splurged with four courses and a bottle and it was still $150 before tip. Dont miss this place!

Great Find in Beaverton
Was west of Portland with friends for an event and wanted a good place for lunch/brunch. This was perfect. Great options from the bar menu and the brunch menu and the wine list was very good.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Glad to be back!
Hall Street used to be an old favorite that we frequented on a fairly regular basis. Then something happened to the menu and there appeared to be fewer choices with a disproportionate number of "exotic" foods at higher prices. We sat out for a couple of years and decided to give it another try. So very glad we did. We both had the fish dishes and they were fabulous! Beautiful presentation and flavor. Perfect quantity. I'd rank it up there with the other local well-known fish houses. We will definitely be back some time soon.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service were great. Opened with a complimentary starter since it was out first visit of roasted garlic, cheese and a homemade tomato sauce that was surprising light and not too tangy, but lightly sweet. The entrées were perfect. My daughter ordered sirloin, but they found they were out and substituted with filet mignon, which was a great treat for her! Dessert was equally surprising and enjoyable. Each dessert had that special taste that made it unique. I’ve never had peach shortcake before, but it was amazing! Everything made it a special dining experience for our special occasion.

Nice birthday lunch!
Everything was overall pretty good. I thought the prices were a little bit high but since we were celebrating my Mom's 70th it was worth it. The ONLY real negative I have is that I ordered what was called a "Crab Melt". I always order crab melts if they are on a menu. They're always some type of bread with crab and melted cheese. The one at Hall Street was described as "Northwest Dungeness Crab Melt - Tillamook cheddar cheese, sliced tomato on cracked wheat sourdough." What I received was a "Crab Salad Sandwich" - crab (couldn't' even taste it), mixed with mayonnaise, onion, etc. on top of toasted wheat sourdough topped with a little cheese and sliced tomato. It was OK, but definitely not what I was expecting!

I took my father there for
I took my father there for lunch, for his 70th birthday, and we had a great time. The food was outstanding. Our wait staff was amazing. Kind and attentive without hovering. Great place for business luncheons as well. Nice jazz playing softly in the background. It was a perfect experience.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My brother and I dined at Hall Street Grill this past Saturday and could not have been more impressed with the service. Our server walked past our table often to check on us without interrupting our experience. He made himself available to help without being overeager. I plan to return next time I visit Beaverton.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Eight out of ten and here's why...
I made a reservation for my birthday and got a call from the restaurant the next day. I was pleased that we could talk about steps, ramps and my need to be close to the entrance. Lovely! I was told to look for Ursula when we got there. I can't enough good things about her and every staff person we came into contact with.
I marked the restaurant down on their food: I ordered the mushroom and corn risotto, with shrimp. There were perhaps 8 shrimp lining the plate. I put the first shrimp in my mouth and ate it all. About half the shrimp were tail-on, and half had no tails. The chef wasn't consistent in his preparation.
The creme brulee was only fair in its taste and the top didn't crack under a spoon.
Otherwise it was great.

One of my favorite favorite
One of my favorite favorite restuarants. Excellent. Had family dinner there for my wife's birthday. Wonderful. Trusted them to make it fabulous and it was.

Cheers to Whiskey
As though Hall Street Grill didn't have a great kitchen, wonderful bar and superb menu already, whiskey of all sorts gets a nice price savings on Wednesday: perfect for entertaining friends, family or business associates after hours.

Loved everything! Great food, timing and atmosphere!

Great for a first date!
I took my date to Hall Street Grill for our first meeting and it went awesome. Ben was our waiter and not only was he knowledgeable about the specials and the items on the menu, but he was professional and courteous throughout the night.
I have recommended Hall Street Grill to many people over the past 10 years and it's always nice to know that they are still providing one of the best (if not THE best) dining experience in Beaverton.

Always excellent as expected
I am a returning customer and was not disapointted. Taking a 1st date here to get to know each other. The staff was helpful but not pushy, prompt with the food and drinks when we did want attention but not hovering when we just wanted to talk. My beef was cooked exactly as ordered with a wonderful sauce on the side, the beet salad is always a delight. We ended up staying nearly to closing and the staff kept our drinks filled but did not pressure us.
I'll continue to come back, Hall Street Grill is consistently excellent in my book.

A very impressive, varied, and creative weekend brunch menu. Our selections were well prepared, unique, and delicious.

consistently a pleasant experience
i've been coming to Hall Street for close to 20 years and its always been a good experience. Very prompt and professional service, food and food selection has been superior for all those years too. I've been there for business, for pleasure, and for family functions and all have been a great time with great food.

My wife and I always enjoy going to Hall Street. Amazing food, and great service.
It's spendy, but well worth it, especially for special occasions.
