Food was not hot & was not anything special!
This was perhaps one of the worst dining experiences we have ever had. I wish we had stayed at the bar upstairs, or ordered room service. Service was awful and the food was even worse. Save yourself the disappointment and go to the Chinese place down the street.
Did not expect the meal to be served buffet style. The service was very poor.
It's difficult to get excited when there are insects in the food!!!
The food was very poor and the place lacked any kind of ambiance. The chicken salad was not fresh at all. I had to wait for my dinner because the server had accidentally put in the wrong order, which meant two people ate while I waited for mine. We will not be back.
Where to start. The Brussels sprouts were barely cooked and tasteless, and the so-called "heirloom" tomato salad was inedible. Large tomato halves were served that were white inside, no edible flesh st all. Let's just say that I had a granola bar when I got back to my room! I certainly expected more from Westin.
Conveniently located, quiet, informal restaurant. Servers were friendly but service was slow, perhaps because they were also helping to prepare food. Salmon and haddock entrees were very good, if a bit spare. Cobb salad was disappointing.
Pork chop was excellent!
Worst service I have ever experienced.
We both ordered fish and chips. Both came out cold! When served, I asked the waitress for some malt vinegar. It never came.
Don’t waste your time and money here!
it was delicious perfect location cause we had tickets to the state theater...soo close
Only problem was a few flies and small bugs hovering about
Bland food for expensive price. The food was very bland and had little taste. It was also very pricey for what it was. It was pricey hotel food is how we would characterize it.
Hotel restaurant. Food was good potato for breakfast was hot spicy and they had spicy chicken sausage
Really slow and poor service.
The food was great but the service was amazing.
Front of the house needs to get it together. There should be at least one staff available in reception/dining room even when business is slow.
Waiting 5 minutes for a hostess to appear in order to be seated is not acceptable.
On the upside, the kitchen and the young waitstaff are very good.
Food was delicious, the environment was nice. Clean and up to date. Went on Mother's Day for dinner, it was nearly empty which makes the slow inattentive service baffling. Perhaps all the regular staff was off for Mother's Day? Throughout our meal we had 3 different servers. Good beer selection, though not many on tap. Excellent wine selections and very good cocktails. We'll return.
Overpriced for what you get.
We were very disappointed with the Brunch. We were there for Easter Brunch and expected the same quality and similar food. We couldn’t believe they did not even have toast , bagels. For $55 we all felt like we were robbed. Our waitress looked over whelmed and we had to request water several times. Even when the coffee was served milk and sugar not provided. Very very disappointed
We came for a 4-generation Mothers Day brunch. We agreed the food was good. Please pass that on to kitchen. The company was the best part of the experience because we bring that wherever we go.
Our reservation was for 10 o'clock. Upon prompt arrival we were seated in a weird, windowless room near entrance. A stack of linens, array of clipboards, pile of silverware were on a side table. There was not one flower, nor a single picture on the wall in the room. I asked to be seated in the restaurant and was told there were no tables available. We prepared to leave, then your staff person (server?, hostess?...) offered to find another table. She did and we were seated in the dining room among many vacant tables. She then explained that the buffet was not ready, but by the time she finished her sentence, said it was ready. All rather strange. She was nice and tried to be helpful, but was quite harried as were the rest of the staff. All were sweating which was off-putting. She tried her best, but the intermittent service was not good. It took a long time for simple requests like cream for coffee, juice etc, and water that never came. After waiting a while for the check which never came, I went to pay and met our server who had the bill. I had my credit card in hand which she reached for before allowing me see the bill. When I asked to look it she then asked me my granddaughter's age. Then she adjusted the bill because she is 4 1/2.
Upon departure, a staff person said this to my 88 year old mother-in-law: "Thanks for showin' up". Not particularly professional to say the least. We won't be back and I'll be sharing our experience. For $200 I wish we had gone to Becky's diner.
Thanks for askin'.
Treated myself to a special dinner at C2-Congress Squared Restaurant, as a start to my vacation. Started with a lovely specialty drink called Co-Pilot. Ordered the Grilled Berkshire Pork Chop entrée, which was quite good. Overall a very nice dining experience.
I was hoping for brunch but it had ended before we got there
Fantastic Easter Brunch !.
We had a very enjoyable dinner and would definitely recommend this restaurant. Our waiter was great, attentive and knowledgeable. The menu not that extensive, but seems to be something for everyone for dinner. Not sure if there is a children’s menu. Worth a try!
Excellent 3 course restaurant week menu and fair price for wine pairing. Very attentive service and comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely be back for regular full priced menu!
A few friends and I went for restaurant week and it was spectacular!! Out server was amazing and we had a wonderful time! Oh and the food was delicious!!
Valentine’s Date night. Nice & quiet, attentive service, amazing dessert.
Great eatery! Last minute reservation and asked for a bouquet of flowers for Valentine’s Day, they had a beautiful arrangement of roses on the table when we arrived. Staff was very respectful and responsive to our dining experience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quiet everyday dinner or special occasion.
My husband and I went for a date night. The service was excellent! I had the carrot ginger soup which was perfect. The pan seared scallops were scrumptious. My husband had the haddock and hand cut fries which was equally as good and a very large portion. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice quiet night out.
Pleasant dining experience! Service was top notch. Food was great - loved the crispy crust on the fish n chips! Chocolate torte was heavenly!
We had two plates of eggs. No juice or hot beverage. The total was $30. This place was ridiculously overpriced for breakfast. A true hotel restaurant that shouldn’t be posted here for a breakfast option.
New years eve out and it was freezing. We arrive to a freezing entry area and are seated readily even though we were a little early. Only a few people at the bar, maybe 20-25 people dining. The menu was not what was shown on the web, a pre fix and a few other offerings, none with steak. The waitress was inattentive and left our apps through half of our diner before she cleared the tiny table, as our food was being delivered. my lobster roll was served in a hot dog bun and maybe 10-14 fries on the side for 18.00, it was flavorless and obvious the lobster was not fresh. The other meals were a single chop that had been precooked and warmed, with cold green beans and mildly warm mashed potatoes, sadly the big hit of the table was the quesadilla for $8.00. Our mussels app was a huge dish of broth and maybe 14-16 mussels and one small crustini for a table of 4. We asked for bread and got a 4 inch long hard french crustini bread barely cut through and hard butter balls. Paying the bill and getting our table cleared was a mini miracle and each round of drinks bought came in a different glass, the two men each had three and the first beer came in a bottle, the second in a tall bar glass the third one in a round bottom tall mixed drink glass, the other man ordered 3 screwdrivers, each delivered in a different glass ? They weren't packed, even mildly busy and it was new years. Not a great end to a fun night out,I thought that the reviews were mixed enough to try, but for the 150 we spent for our half of the bill for four, we should have gone to one of the rooms, corner room, front room or grill room all cost the same and the food is fresh and service is prompt, attentive and enjoyable. May you become a better place to eat and better to your patrons in 2018!
Christmas dinner. Prime rib was delicious if not a little cold. Vegetables were cold. Quail was warmed over as well were the lamb meatballs.
Not really a good meal, service was amateurish, long waits for drinks and bill was brought without requesting it.
Would not go back.
Our experience on Christmas Day was truly exceptional!
We had to delay our reservations due to an emergency but was graciously accommodated by Cory, the manager.
We were dining at 3:30 so the dining room was well lit and festively decorated. The staff were pleasant and allowed us to change our seat to away from the window which was too cool though I usually enjoy, and had requested, window seating.
The dinner menu was in keeping with the day and served hot and delicious by Evan. This was a four course meal which started with a sampling of appetizers and bread for the table, then a salad of our choice, and entrée of our choice, which was a perfect prime rib roast, and a grand finale to chose from: fruit bread pudding or chocolate tort! This meal rivaled one of my favorite restaurants, the White Barn Inn at an appealing price point.
We also enjoyed a couple of their cocktail options. I loved the tequila/cranberry and my son enjoyed the bourbon/maple syrup liquor Old Fashion so much, he shared the ingredients with friends for future imbibing!
We left very satisfied and stuffed! Thank you C2 for making a portion of our Christmas so wonderful :)
The food was terrific and the staff were very attentive.
We had a Christmas Eve reservation and didn't realize it was a limited menu for $65. It did not say this on the website or Open Table.
We had four appetizers. Cream cheese in a puff pastry was good. Mussels in sauce tasted like eating a cigarette. Duck meatballs were ok.
For starters I had broiled oysters in some kind of sauce. Felt more like raw and not very tasty. My guest had a kale salad, which was good.
For the main course I had a whole fish, minus head, that was very bland and full of bones. My guest enjoyed his Christmas ham over creamed potatoes.
The bread pudding desert was very good.
Went to lunch before a Christmas concert. Was greeted by a very friendly staff and was shown to our table right away. The wait staff was very good and gave the right amount of service without being over done. We both had the clam chowder which was very good (highly recommend it!). The entrees (Lobster Sliders & Cobb Salad ) were good. Great place for lunch & more.
2nd or 3rd visit ... very good once again. Food is interesting, fresh and served in an attractive manner. Bartender was available but not annoying. Just a really nice experience -
(Only disappointment was that I had recently seen C2 on a list of top Happy Hour spots in Portland. The list noted many discounted appetizers and I was surprised to find that there was only that night. Not a big deal really but a little disappointing - )
Wait staff was in-efficient and had no knowledge of the menu at all
Wait for food was extreme.
Thanksgiving dinner was wonderful. A 3-course meal and sides for the table. Everything tasted wonderful. We chose non-traditional dishes, but still felt that we had celebrated the holiday well.
