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!

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.

Overall experience was great. However, Open Table, where I made my reservation failed. The day before my reservation, I got an email from Open Table telling me the restaurant had cancelled my reservation. I called the restaurant and they still had my reservation. If I had done what the email said and placed another reservation, I would have ended up with two. Open Table needs to get it together.

Although Portland city grill is supposedly one of the best restaurants in Portland I found that for the purpose of a special occasion it was a bit overpriced. The food was excellent and the ambiance and views of the city are fantastic as well but just be prepared to pay for it in the service charge

My husband and I always celebrate our anniversary here and we always have a good experience of food, service and of cause the views. This was the first time I brought my mom to celebrate her birthday. Everything else was good like always, except the service. First the waitress forgot to bring my coffee, and then it took forever to find a staff pass by to help me. When we almost finished our food, I realized they forgot to bring my mom’s clam chowder ! Again took forever to find a stuff to fix it.
