Delicious food and great staff make for a special evening. But it is quite loud and busy. The view is amazing if you can get a window table.

Went for lunch and not so good this time. Restaurant was not busy but service and food were slow. Had to send the clam chowder back because it was so salty that it was inedible. This is usually a great spot but definitely an off day for them.

The food wasn’t anything special. The view was absolutely fantastic however. But I would expect the food to be marvelous at that price with that view.

Service was not as expected for a classier restaurant. Hostess was curt and slightly rude. Waiter did not stop at the table frequently enough. Lots of wait time, leaving us without drinks and sitting uncomfortably waiting for a box/the check. The view is beautiful... if you are lucky enough to get a seat near the window. The two of us were put in the back, at a huge table meant for 4-6, unable to see the view we came to see. We had to leave our table and disrupt the dinner of others if we wanted to see anything but the other customers. We each had steak, which was cooked perfectly in both cases. The green beans on the side were a great touch with the mashed potatoes.

I don't usually remember meals but this one I will remember. The duck, buns, poison sauce and kim chee appetizer was extraordinary. Fresh bread was delicious. Ceasar salad was good and all entrees...steak, lamb, and braised short ribs...were top notch. And our waiter Josh? Justin? was fantastic.

The food was amazing and so was the ambiance. I would highly recommend this place to someone looking for a scenic view and a romantic spot to have dinner. It is pricey, however it is worth every penny. When you make your reservation be sure to request a window seat.

Father's Day brunch was outstanding! With several seafood options, our party was pleased. The option of also ordering a few special items from the menu is nice in order to experience special flavors. We had guests who are moving to the area, and they loved sharing a window seat in order to explore the area from above!

We were there to celebrate my daughter's graduation. We arrived about 10 minutes early but they were ready for us and sat us very shortly after we arrived. The table had been decorated with Congratulations "confetti", very thoughtful. Everything was amazing, timeliness, service, food, and celebration. They gave my daughter a special dessert with a chocolate congratulations decoration on the plate. A really great place.

The service was not good, I made a reservation a few days in advance for a birthday celebration with the request for a window table. When we got there we were told it will be another maybe 45 minutes to get a window table, there was no preparation/decoration at the table we were seated at for the birthday, and I feel this ruined the occasion from the get go. The food was fine, the service was nothing special really. I'll definitely think carefully before I decide to make another reservation there.

Been here often. noticed price went up. not a big deal but my rib eye was like 50% fat. Felt I did not get what I paid for. I love Portland City Grill but expected a nicer rib-eye than what I paid for. Not sure if I would dine here again. Use to be my go to.

The view is always great, service was good, the food fair and the bothersome thing to me was when my gift card from my last bad experience they said was expired and they wouldn't honor it. There wasn't a sticker on it to tell the date, so I thought it was worth a try, apparently when you have a bad experience, you have to come back in a certain time frame that works for Portland Grill to use your gift card. So if you are planning on using a gift card make sure it isn't expired. Just a little disappointed that our first time was a disaster and my second time I ended up spending $100+ on an 'okay' lunch. Not worth it.
