This restaurant holds a special memory for me, as this is where my husband proposed. We are from out of state so we don’t make it to PCG often. The views are still spectacular and the service was great. We attended at a very late hour and the restaurant was very dark... you could hardly see the other patrons including those at your table. Our food was great, but not necessarily worth the high ticket prices. Overall, I’d recommend. Just be prepared to spend top dollar for your meal.

Apps were so good I was full-ish before my huge rib-eye came. Advice: don’t come here once; enjoy an entree first visit, then apps on second visit. Apps: best calamari I have ever experienced. Crazy good, no words. Veg roll blew me away. Crab cakes obviously have to be ordered. I insisted on only local Pinot and of course not only one hell of a selection but great matches with all of the food we ordered. Needless to say we’ll be back the next time we’re in town.

Food was good, but not exceptional. Server was not personable or engaging. He acted like we were interrupting him. We know Portland City Grill is all about the view and you pay for it $$$$. with business guests from out of town it was the perfect place to take them. We had a lovely time.

The set up for the table was so cute, Emily who answered was so nice to have mentioned that it was my Best friend Birthday
We sat at the bar waiting for a table to open up and were seated in 15 min.
The drinks were amazing and made on point

We had an incredible experience with all staff. Upon reserving our table I mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary and we were so incredibly surprised to find our table adorned with the cutest little heart shaped cut outs and “happy anniversary” glitter. The staff left a nice card and they even gave us a complimentary mousse!!!! We left feeling so special. They made our anniversary dinner so special and went above and beyond to make us happy. We couldn’t have had a better experience.

Server was somewhat inattentive considering it wasn’t that crowded, except for one large table. One of our party arrived several minutes after we were seated, and no water was brought to her, nor was her drink order taken promptly until we managed to get his attention. He seemed rushed and was lukewarm to us, not friendly. I had friends from out of town, so it was a little embarrassing. Other than that, food and ambiance were good. They loved the views!

We had just disembarked from a river cruise and not really as "into" food as usual, but we'd heard the food was good so decided to try dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to be given a window seat. The view alone was priceless. I ordered the Goat Cheese and Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken which was outstanding. Perfectly cooked and sauced. My wife had the Apple, Gorgonzola & Candied Hazelnuts salad, plus the Oven Roasted Crab Cakes, also outstanding. The crab cakes were like zero cake, all crab and butter. Divine! Everything on the menu sounded delicious, and our only regrets are that we were too full to order dessert.

The view was out of this world, the food was delicious and the service was good. My only complaint would be the food came too fast. They had us in and out of there in an hour. I prefer to sit and talk over a good meal! Other than that we loved the place!

Great food, views and service. Needs a remodel badly (especially the bathrooms) and it was a bit warm and was told they have no control over the thermostat and that it was controlled out of Atlanta. Weird. Great meal as always but you get what you pay for.

Great spot to take a date. You can see the entire city. The food is excellent because it’s not cheap. You get what you pay for at this place and I say it’s worth it for a special occasion or if you want a drink at happy hour to get a panoramic view of the entire city.

My boyfriend had 100 questions, and our server was very knowledgeable and happy to answer them all. He even described the special entree that wasn't on the menu perfectly, and with confidence. It was my birthday so i was given a complimentary dessert and had confetti on my table. It was amazing, and i cant wait to come back!

I was disappointed in that everything I ordered that should have been at least warm was cold. We have gone to PCG many times and this is the first time that I have been very disappointed. I would still recommend it to my friends, but would warn them of this experience. It if happens to me again, it will be the last time I go there. With tip, my bill for four people was just under $700. At prices like that, food meant to be served hot, should be served hot - - NOT COLD.

My family wanted to have a really special brunch for Mother's Day as it was also my mom's 80 birthday. The staff was wonderful. We were seated immediately. And they were very attentive. The view, as always, was spectacular.

The food however, was disappointing. When we joined the buffet line at 12:30 pm we found the food offerings extremely depleted. Chafing dishes were almost empty, they had run out of the roast beef, they didn't even offer the lamb that had been on their website, and all of the other side dishes were running low. We felt like we were coming in at the end of the buffet instead of half-way through. We were also charged more than the website had promoted -- apparently for their super-special Mother's Day Brunch, so that was disappointing too. We will not be returning.
