Our group of 12 was given a semi-private area which was quiet. The servers were very friendly and served the excellent food in a timely manner. This was a great experience for us.

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

Come on Portland!
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).

Our "Go To' Restaurant
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!

A continued Gem
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.

In the heart of the city
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.

Enjoyed the dinning the Halibut and the Steelhead was some of the best we have ever had.

A friend and I visited Porto
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!!

Nice spot for lunch
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.

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!

It's a hotel restaurant, so
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.

Impressive customer service!
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!!!

Nice find for lunch
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.

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.

Great Italian Food and Wait-staff!
This is one of my favorite restaurants for a business lunch. The food is excellent and the wait-staff is attentive.

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.

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

Good for groups.
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.
