Firstly, the view from the 30th floor was beautiful and the Lavender Cosmo was delicious but...
There was one entree special that evening, Halibut. The waitress was not able to describe what it included nor how it was prepared, until she came back after checking, but it was 9:00 pm, you would have thought she would have known by that time of night what the special was.
I did end up ordering the Halibut, but it was very mushy...not very good, I didn't eat it.
Also, we could hear the bartenders complaining about not being able to go home yet.
It's a high end restaurant with high end prices, which is fine, but the food and staff didn't measure up.

I went in for my birthday dinner, and the staff were super sweet and attentive. With covid, they handled everything very well, and were very upfront with guidelines. The food was perfect and the I cant wait to go back

This was our first time at Portland City Grill as a celebration for my 30th Birthday and my husbands promotion at work. The food was beautifully done. My Ciopinno was a perfect portion, my husbands steak was wonderfully grilled. Our cocktails hit the spot! Would definitely return.

Made a reservation for my daughter’s graduation. We had a wonderful time. It was a rainy day but the sun came out to complement the food. She was thoroughly happy and that is what it is all about

We came here to celebrate friends’ engagement, and it was INCREDIBLE. Our reservations were for 7:45, so we got to see the entire progression of the sunset over all of Portland. It was beautiful, the food was amazing, and the service was wonderful. Highly recommend.

We have been to this restaurant many times and have been pleased with all aspects of the experience. Last night we had dinner with some friends and the experience was not good. The service was ok but the food in particular steak for $70 was not acceptable. First, the steak was served without knives and then was almost impossible to cut. Other dishes served were much better. I don’t think we will return.

50th birthday celebration. The staff at Portland City Grill was amazing. Setting was beautiful and the food was fantastic. And this is all in a very challenging environment for the service/restaurant industry. I will be returning time and again in the future and look forward to them at capacity with bar service and their popular happy hour.

Everything about our experience was poor. We were placed in the back corner and forgotten several times. Our server vanished for 30 minutes. Drinks and food both came out incorrect and it took extra time for them to attempt fixing it, but weren’t able to. The view was nice, if you aren’t delegated to a dusty corner in a corner like we were.

This place isn't what it was before the pandemic. We were celebrating a 50th birthday and were seated not actually in the restaurant but in the catering room - which is like eating in a cheap hotel ballroom. Food was really terrible and the prices for it were outrageous - which we were fine paying before when the food was some of the best in the city, but a nearly $300 check for Sysco truck food is completely unacceptable. We will never come back here. Just the view of the city doesn't justify charging customers a premium for the terrible food and mediocre service.

Beautiful view of the city with great staff who were happy to answer questions about things we saw from the window. Food was plentiful & tasted great. Our only complaint is they are no longer doing Happy Hour which is what we thought we booked for Open Table showed it but apparently if you book directly thru their own website it shows no happy hour & we still enjoyed it😃

I love this place for a lot of reasons. The food is phenomenal, and the servers and additional staff are always very attentive. The views are unbeatable, especially on a sunny day like yesterday. The cocktails never disappoint, and the wine list is very comprehensive. It’s the perfect place for a special occasion. My only complaint is sometimes depending on the night, the other patrons can be loud and overbearing, which can affect the ambience.

While this location once produced food as spectacular as the view it seems to have lost its unique point of view. The kolbi beef once the best dish I had eaten is now muddled by too sweet purée and overly salted spinach. Steak that appeared a perfect medium at first cut was almost raw in the middle and accompanying green beans were acidic enough that they burned the mouth. The fresh baked cookie dessert is no more replaced by common steak house cheesecakes and flourless torts. In short there are far better food options at a fraction of the price available elsewhere and that makes me so very sad to write.
