    The Valentine's Day Menu was still available to celebrate my husband's birthday. The 3 course meal was excellent. The surf and turf was exquisite. I heated up the leftover filet and it was still tender and juicy the next day.

    “Welcome back Mr Alvarado”. The host says to me as I walk up the the front desk. I can’t remember if I’ve ever been addressed liked that. Kinda liked it. They had my favorite table available as well as my favorite server Seiwa. Lunch is great at PCG. We had dinner there the night before and it was also spectacular. I’m thinking I’m in love with PCG again. Thank you

    The food was not okay considering I paid over $200... My steak was burnt and just was not appetizing whatsoever. The waiter was hardly there knowing that we were ready to leave and just wanted our check he just kept walking away...

    We have been going to Portland city grill for some time now but this last time will be the last time - the food was subpar - they changed the calamari and it’s deep fried pieces of nothing, they no longer have scallops on the menu. I would have thought it was because it was Valentine’s Day busy but we are foodies and although the atmosphere if you have a window seat Is beautiful, the food has gone down the drain. We have may choices and we will not be going back again sadly to say.

    Our food was very good, but we both had to send back our main course because we both received incorrect items on the first order we were served. The server told us that she communicated very clearly with the kitchen what about our specific requests, but our orders weren't even close. She apologized, but I got the impression, whether it was right or not, that our situation was by no means unique.

    We haven’t been to the Grill in a few years, and the quality of the food remains superb: Ceasar salad 10/10; Oregon Jumbalaya 10/10; Smoke Bourbon 10/10; Mojito 3/10 but the manager gracefully replaced the drink with a fine Porto. Music was a tad bit too loud. We will return 😀!

    This restaurant is in Portland which is well known for having great food. The food at PCG was mediocre. You can and should do Better. I will not go back and also will not recommend this restaurant to anyone. It’s a waste of a great venue to serve such bad food. We had reservations for lunch and lunch menu was not available as it was Valentines Day so we were forced to pay even higher prices for our food. It would have been nice to be warned ahead of time that lunch menu was not going to be available and then we could have chosen another day to go. Such a disappointment.

    I’ve been here a few times, but I don’t think this was quite up to its standards. We came early and were seated by the window which was great. Drinks: The 2 fancy - special old fashions were neither fancy or special. We had 3 apps. Calamari was the best! Ahi was good but some of our party could not eat it as there was chili oil which was not disclosed in the menu. Lobster/steak roll was good but a bit bland. Two seafood trios, Chilean sea bass and the salmon special were our mains. Trios were good, salmon was the best part but the scallops and shrimp although cooked well were nothing to write home about. Chilean Sea Bass was excellent, but the risotto was overcooked. Salmon with the fire roasted salsa was good. Desserts: crème brûlée which was great! The Molten lava cake was overcooked. Dry and no gooey center. The cheesecake and chocolate tortes were good. Overall was it worth the price? Not in our opinion. Next time when we are back in town, we will choose another place to celebrate.

    The ambiance was very nice. A beautiful view of the city. The service was exceptional; the food and drink Ms were delicious. Our waitress did an amazing job accommodating my friends and I. There was an error with my meal and my meal was taken off the order without any hesitation even though I was not expecting that. I would highly recommend this establishment.

    Beautiful View. The bread and butter were good. The oysters were decent. Corporate restaurant food and menu. I had a shrimp and scallop main dinner featuring three tough shrimp, and three mushy scallops with an overbuttered corn mixture. Much too noisy for a special dinner. We were on time for our reservation and not seated for 25 minutes. Our table was right next to the kitchen. The best part of the experience was our busser. He was great. Will not be my choice again.

    We had reservations but waited for a window table. There was a mix up that caused our wait to be much longer than we were told. John came over and explained the issue. He had a very friendly attitude and made the issue better. He offered a discount for our inconvenience. We had a beautiful view and enjoyed a fabulous meal. John is the perfect personality for his role. We ended up having a fantastic dinner.

    Appetizers - excellent. Well done, plenty, great value. Ordered specialty steaks - one of the two was below par, way below! Waitress - varied between v. good and another a touch arrogant and much untrained. Sommelier - the true value of this place - distinguished, extremely knowledgeable. All in all a good experience. Next time, I will be less tolerant and if any dish / explanation below par, will deal w. it on site rather than in this forum.

    Always excellent food and drinks. If they have a weakness - it's service. They seem a bit strained - the last two times we were there - they had to scramble to provide table coverage and most recent dinner - the waiter was just plain slow. Overall, a great dining experience in context to food and view.

    We’ve been to Portland City Grill quite a few times and always had a great experience, but this time it just wasn’t our favorite. The food just was nowhere near as good as it’s been in the past-the calamari was way over battered and mushy, the mussels had no flavor and many were empty, etc.
