We had a fantastic meal! Our service was great; Shane was very attentive and helpful with recommendations. The food was incredible and of course, you couldn't beat the view! We will definitely be dining here again during our next visit to Portland.

With Covid-19 guidelines, the main bar was closed which is a plus and minus - It was always great to see so many people gathered together and live piano music.

The experience now was great - very quiet, romantic, and great service!

Sat at the table closest to the kitchen in the far back. Server took 15-20 to meet us, a different server got us drinks in the mean time. Food was $$ and portions were not great.

The food was absolutely amazing; the staff was professional, warm, and friendly; and our server went above and beyond and noticed the birthday card on the table to my significant other, and she surprised us with a desert topped with a birthday candle. It was a wonderful experience.

Our overall experience was decent. Food was just okay. We had the sirloin and lobster claw special and the lobster was bland. Was not good at all. The steak was good though. The dessert and drinks were the best part as well as the view. When coming back to Portland we are not sure if we will come back to this restaurant due to the food not being good.

Just cannot beat the view on a clear evening. I appreciated the staff working with me to get a window seat for a special 1st date. Waiter and table service as good as it gets. Crab cakes were the best I’ve ever had. It’s spendy but worth it for a special occasion. Don’t forget that the grill will validate your parking ticket for 2-1/2 hours.

My mom came to visit me from New Mexico and I wanted to take her to dinner. We randomly chose Portland City Grill in Open Table and it turned out much better than we anticipated! Beautiful city views, delicious food, and superb service. The felt mignon was cooked perfectly. That salmon was delicious. And the creme brûlée was the best we’ve ever had. We would have loved to sit by the window but our table was still nice. Would definitely recommend.

A nice place to celebrate a birthday—beautiful views of the city from our window table. The food was adequate, although I ordered Surf and turf with steak and SALMON, and what I got was halibut instead; my friend’s meal was cool to the touch when it arrived at our table, so we sent it back and they warmed it up for her. I ended up topping up our wine glasses twice, rather than the waiter attending to it. Other than that, it was a nice evening.

Our waiter was a little awkward. Did not clarify our orders, made weird jokes. We had to fake laugh to not make it more awkward.

It was a very good place to eat even though they should add some more things to the menu. It has a good view to Portland city, but it would be nice if there’s foods to be added that you could actually pronounce.

Our waiter was not super friendly and did not even give me a refill of my drink our entire meal. The 10oz wagyu was a little chewy and the mashed potatoes were Luke warm to cold on the outside. For me I expect more for a $57 entree. On the chicken Marsala, the vegetables were cooked well but the chicken was average. It was thin and not very moist.

If you would like a view of the river make sure you note that on your reservation and then tell them again when you check in, even still they may tell you they “are working on getting you the best table” but then seat you in the middle of a bench.

The most underwhelming dining experience in recent memory. Worst steak of my life. Loud and crowded. Put a Ruby Tuesday’s on top of a high rise and you got Portland city grill.

I’ve been to this restaurant over 20 times and this was by far the worst experience. One of the chefs had a heavy hand on the liquid smoke and ruined the salmon plate. I could literally taste liquid smoke for the entire following day.

Won’t be back.

So this happened ... I ordered a salad. The server took it to the table next to me. When he realized it was delivered to the wrong table he picked it up and set it down in front of me and said "I don't know why they took this to the wrong table."

Uhhhhh, OK. I wouldn't have accepted that before COVID. Now you want me to eat a salad that's been sitting in front of somebody for at least five minutes and who had the server put fresh cracked pepper on it already? Are you kidding me? And server kind of gave me side eye when I said "you don't really expect me to accept this, do you?"

Yeah. Not amusing.

Steak was really good, but probably won't be back. Like I'm going to leave a 20% tip of $40 to a dude who acted like I was in the wrong for not wanting to eat a salad delivered to a different table first.
