    Had a very unpleasant experience with the host. Made reservations for my daughters bday, wanted a window table asked for one they said there was a wait list. The people next to us said we are leaving you can have this one. We decided to take them up for the offer and had a very unpleasant experience with the host came to the table and instead of explaining how we couldn’t do that, she was very rude and told us we had to move and repeated that we had to get up out of the table and move and she kept asking us if we understood that we had to move?. After we told her the situation and had to repeat to her that we understood the four times that she asked. Instead of explaining the restaurant policy and helping us move to the table we were assigned. The whole experience with the host was very unpleasant and unprofessional on her end (so sad specially since we were celebrating a special event).

    The food was all good, but not great. I expected more because I’ve been to Portland city Grill before, and it was always exceptional! The biggest disappointment was the pumpkin pie, which is my all-time favorite thing to have on Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, your pumpkin pie was not even edible even my son who eats anything took a couple of bites and did not finish.😩

    Enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with my wife and son. 1st time experience, but parking and ticket valet was easy. Was packed with patrons but the service was still very efficient amd friendly. Everyone dining seemed to be enjoying themselves and were enjoying the pleasant atmosphere and city sights. Food was high quality and seasoned well. Had potatoes prepared differently in 3 dishes and possibly the best ive had. Braised short rib and filet mignon steak were excellent and savory. My son had their chicken strips and ate until he was stuffed (the ranch dip was yummy). Desserts were good but recommend the cheesecake over the pumpkin pie.

    Birthday celebration. Overall good for day before thanksgiving. However it all felt disconnected a bit. Beer spilled on my 13yo by the waitress. Yes. She apologized and gave her a dessert on the house. Experience in the past times have been better.

    Really great venue :) Service was excellent. Appetizers were pretty good - shrimp cocktail, tempura shrimp, and scallop crudo. Pretty good lowered my star by one. Entrees were good but one colleague's steak came out as tho it had been under a heat lamp and not very fresh / hot. That was disappointing. Our other two entrees (Lamb Chops and Ribeye) were presented better. Overall, it was a good experience and dinner. Some glitches; hopefully just "that day". Will update here after next time.

    We went to this restaurant to celebrate our childhood friend’s phalloplasty and it was the best experience ever. The food was divine (I highly recommend the braised beef short ribs!) and the service was impeccable. If I ever come to Portland again, this will be the first stop right off the plane! Very intimate setting and enjoyable. Love this place!

    We all enjoyed our meals. Both steaks were delicious, scallops were cooked perfectly and the fish was just right. The side were delicious too. We went at night, and didn't get as much of a view. The food was so good we decided we need to go back for lunch some time, so we can enjoy the view. The portions weren't huge, but no one left hungry. We parked in the garage under the building and it was easy to get in and get out.

    Requested a window seat 2 months in advance. Did not get my window seat and had to ask for it. They were able to accommodate but made the start of the evening a bit awkward. Food was great but the server kept interrupting rather than wait until I was done with my sentence. Overall great experience and always have a wonderful time here. Will definitely come back as it is my favorite place.

    I wish we had known to sit in the lounge because I think it would’ve been less expensive. But we wanted a window seat. This was for a 21st birthday party and I think the birthday person would’ve been happier in the lounge.

    Rated food poorly, asparagus pithy. potato boiled no seasoning or toppings, New York Steak delicious and cooked as ordered, Rib eye charred and overcooked, appetizers more coatings than substance, Creme Brulee delicious and nicely prepared, salmon fishy and scallops tough and rubbery. I would not bothered with a review as I think you people should already know how to cook. We like the location but are not likely to return.

    We were hungry and new to the area. It wasn’t quite dinner yet, but lunch had passed by three hours. We got on open table and found the grill open and steps from our current location. The reviews boasted culinary excellence and incredible views, so with our tiny family of three of we went. We asked for a window seat and a quiet area. They accommodated us without issue. Our window table was to the side of Mount Hood and as the sun went down, we were able to watch the snowy mountain top glisten in gold as the daylight dimmed and colorful evening city lights brightened. Service was knowledgeable, professional, yet personable, friendly and warm. The kids menu satisfied our 6yo, and our adult tastes. We had a very delicious and satisfying meal, with apps, plus a kids meal, for less than $75 including the tip. We feel so blessed to have had the amazing experience we did, and we will most definitely be back during more traditional dinner hours for date night. The food, the views, and the love from our server created customers for life!

    We go to PCG biannually and usually have a good enough time. The fact that you are very high up on a tall building in downtown Portland is the reason to dine there. The food is adequate but not impressive, when compared with similar restaurants not in a tall building. The service typically provides you with the bare minimum. We were attempting to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and no effort was made by our server to acknowledge the celebration, although we indicated it in our reservation. Additionally, while I understand that window tables are "first come, first served", I find it odd that I can never remember being seated there with a reservation without specifically asking (at which time you are typically admonished for asking for such a thing). It seems to me that a better system for a window table could be in place, as it does not appear that a window table is as random as it is claimed. I recommend a 5pm reservation, as you will then see the city in the light, and the dark, which is a large part of the experience. I suppose that my recommendation would also be to advocate for oneself, as the servers and the business itself will not do so for you. The appetizers are typically excellent, as is the soup, and salad. The review asks me to tell you whether I would recommend this establishment or not. I selected "yes", although I would say that your mileage may vary. Unless you really enjoy novelty, you may wish to seek a better served dining experience elsewhere.
