Our meal was overall great - a few hits and misses. My wedge salad was bacon-less and my champagne wasn't that great, pretty sweet for a $24 glass. However, the steak was probably the best one I've ever had. And the spice cake was unbelievable. Our waiter was really nice and knowledgeable, but the table next to us had multiple problems with their meal and he was very focused on them. I would have mentioned my salad issue much earlier but he hadn't checked on us. It seems like everyone wants window tables and they have some sort of wacky system for seating there. Perhaps people should pay extra for it, or be able to book it in advance if they're early or something. We were also very confused when we got off the elevator and walked into a dark hallway with no greeter for several minutes. We didn't see any signage and weren't sure where to go.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us out-of-towners by several locals. The view of the city was wonderful, as was the food and service. My complaints, though, were that lights over the tables were scattered and did not always provide adequate illumination (I saw people using their phones to read the menus), and the noise level was quite high. The party of 8 behind us was so loud we could not comfortably carry on a conversation.

Food was excellent but it took over an hour to get our entrees from when we ordered. We had a 6:15 reservation and had the kids with us so I thought we would be able to get in and out within a reasonable timing. We ordered everything right off the bat and it was still about 25 minutes before we got our (prawn and crab cocktail) appetizer. After we had several rounds of bread and crackers, we inquired at the 45/50 minute mark about our entrees. He went away for a bit and returned with the news it would be 6 more minutes give or take 2 minutes - and it wasn’t. As he finally delivered our entrees, our server joked that it just “seemed” long since we were hungry, in an extremely dismissive way, which I didn’t find humorous. Although the steaks and sides were truly delicious, I was frustrated by his attitude which made it difficult to enjoy our experience. We typically do a lot of private dining at PCG for work events and that service is always amazing so this was a big let down.

I wanted to recognize Spencer who was taking care of our party of three on Tuesday evening. He was absolutely amazing. Knowledgeable, funny, attentive and very proud of the restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was off the charts. I jokingly asked to see the kitchen and he was happy to oblige!! What an amazing set up you have there. I will be back and I can't wait to try more of the fantastic items on your incredible menu.

I will start by saying that the atmosphere and service was FANTASTIC. BEAUTIFUL restaurant, and our waiter was great. The white cheddar mac and cheese was INCREDIBLE. The rest of the food, however, left something to be desired. My fiancee and I both had the wagyu steak tenderloin with green beans and "garlic bernaise fries." The steak was cooked perfectly, but didn't really have any seasoning. The green beans had a lemon sauce over them that infected the entire plate and gave everything a lemon taste that was really jarring. The fries were the worst offender. They seemed to be just frozen waffle fries from a bag with a sauce over them that didn't really have any flavor. They did give us a complimentary chocolate mousse for dessert that was very good.

Great meat, that’s what we go for, best steaks in town! The service was a disappointment this time, not paying any attention to us, we are sitting with empty glasses, bringing us the wrong cocktails, not interested if the meat was prepared right.
For a place like that it’s a sad performance!

My girfriend and I went to PCG for our one year anniversary. We got seated exactly at our reserved time and we both ordered the Steak Skewers as an appetizer. We both ordered a couple drinks and both got the Filet Mignon. At the end of our meal, they brought us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. Needless to say, everything was delightful! I have never had anything more flavorful in my life before. The service was perfect and the food/view of downtown at night was a perfect way to celebrate. I highly recommend this place for special occasions as it will not disappoint!

PCG never disappoints. The mussel and frites, crab cake apps were top notch. Solid cioppino, excellent sea scallops, and great halibut. Their old-fashions are pretty darn good too. Birthday dinner for wife and brought mother-in-law too. Lucked out and got a window table. Server Alyssa H. was fantastic. Thanks PCG for a great evening!

Steaks are okay. Not superb but good enough/you won’t feel ripped off given the high prices. The crab cakes are excellent, highly recommend them. The evening views are only so so and very dependent on weather. Good place if you are from out of town but prepare to spend a lot and not be blown away on the value for money basis. But it’s a good experience, one that is great to check off a list of good places to go in Portland.
