Mike our server was excellent, attentive, and pleasing. Our ribeye was wonderful. One was overcooked and Mike made sure a new one was immediately brought out without question. It was a bit dark maybe due to Valentine's day so it was hard to read the menu as we were sitting in middle section of the room. Everything was great!

The food is mediocre and wildly over priced for what you get, but if you are able to get a window view, the ambience is wonderful. If you're like us and aren't able to get a window seat (it's first come, first served for window seats), the experience/food are absolutely not worth the price.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Portland City Grill. They were able to accommodate our window seat request. The bartender treated us as if we were regulars. Service was great and the Happy Birthday decorations were unexpected and nice. The view was fantastic. The staff was attentive and focused on making sure we had what we needed. Parking is free and hassle free! It was an experience that went just right! I want to return again soon.

I've been to your restaurant 2 times and both times were fantastic. Drinks were very well made, the bar tender knew his stuff and the dinner waiter provided very good service and side choices that seemed outside the box and tailored to our desires. Am coming back soon

We had an excellent meal and the service was attentive. But the price was way in excess of the quality and imaginativeness of the food. What you're paying for is the performance of luxury.

Overall we were very happy with our dining experience at the Portland City Grill. We were seated in a booth and the place was packed, which seemed surprising for a Tuesday night. The food was wonderful. The crab cakes are to die for! My husband ordered the wild caught King salmon Oscar with Wagyu steak. He is a fisherman and very particular about salmon. He was really impressed. I had the stuffed chicken breast, which also did not disappoint. The kale/onion/maybe spinach vegetable side on my plate left a little something to be desired, but didn’t detract from the experience. Our cocktails and desserts were also delicious. Our server was attentive, but not very engaging. We kind of felt like we were inconveniencing him when we asked for drinks. That would be the only area of less than awesome. Prepare to spend some money eating here, but it’s definitely worth it.

My two children and my wife and I dine in many nice restaurants. My wife enjoys steak so we have tried every great steak house in Portland . We both agreed that the Portland City Grill is well behind the other high end restaurants. Although our steaks had a good look to them, they were under cooked (almost raw when we ordered them medium) in all cases and the taste was inferior to other fine dining restaurants. We have eaten here more than once thinking they just had a bad night but now it’s confirmed, we would probably not choose Portland Grill if we wanted a great steak.

What a great experience! Put in reservations at noon for a 6:45 window table, we got pushed back 30 minutes but the food was excellent, staff was friendly, and the drinks were good! Expensive, but worth it for treating yourself.

Excellent service from Mike. Attentive but not intrusive.

When I called about the reservation, I asked if champagne cocktails could be served as soon as our party was seated (as has happened at PCG when celebrating another special occasion - what changed?) I was told that wasn’t possible - all that could be provided was a bottle of champagne at the table. When we arrived, the bottle was just sitting on the table, not even in an ice bucket. These are small things but I was disappointed not to be able to surprise the bridal couple with festive cocktails.

Have been to the Portland City Grill numerous times, all high quality and enjoyable, but prices seemed to have escalated lately so that it's gone from a "very nice dinner" to a "special occasion dinner" to now being a "hope someone can put this on their expense account dinner."

Of course it's about the best view in Portland. The service was impeccable, as expected. Overall a fun night out. We had filet mignon and rib eye, which were mediocre. The green beans were the best item, and the crab cakes. But the lobster tail was overdone and I have had better steak. Kind of surprised. But it's uniquely located and a high end service without feeling stuffy.

The food, service and ambiance was good. What soured it was that they didn’t clean the table and seats from the prior guests and as a result my son’s brand new pair of white jeans was ruined when he sat on something chocolate that was leftover from previous diners. My husband also said there was all kinds of garbage on the floor 😕

A long-planned birthday dinner turned out to be everything I could have hoped for. Waygu steaks and crab cakes were carefully paired with just the right wines. The whole evening was perfectly paced. We had everything we needed whenever we needed it, but we were left alone to drink and chat when that was what we wanted. Nicely done by Izzy, our server, and the entire team at Portland City Grill!
