Portland City Grill obviously has terrific views as well as having a pleasing decor. The wait staff consists of well trained professionals who are very attentive.
Great place to celebrate a birthday.
The view is very nice and it’s a good place to take out of town guests for this reason. I was entertaining guests from out of town and was very embarrassed. The salad we ordered was awful! The server was quite rude. It was not a very busy evening and we felt very rushed. I don’t think I will return.
Food was fantastic,service was great highly recommend
Excellent food and excellent view or city. Rack of lamb was terrific.
I think people go there for the view. Certainly not for the food. Very disappointed in the lack of attention to detail. All the buffet plates were warm and made my salad/fruit plate wilted. Also the cold seafood on a warmed dinner plate was unappetizing. We went in the waiters station and took small plates to get condiments to share (cocktail sauce, lemons). Had to ask for spoons for yogurts day hand wipes after cracking crab. Service was good and we weren’t rushed. So it was ok but very expensive for what is offered.
My husband and I frequently dine at the brunch at Portland City Grill. It’s actually one of our favorite places to go. We decided to bring my brother and sister in law to celebrate the announcement of them having a baby.
We had a party of 10, which they added 18% gratuity to our bill, which wasn’t a problem as we always tip. The problem lies in the service. We have NEVER had such horrible service. EVER! Like I said, we frequently have brunch here. Our server was Autumn. I guess since she already knew she was getting her 18% tip from our table, that meant she didn’t need to assist us with ANYTHING.
People at our table waited over 15 minuets to get juice and coffee. We had to find other wait staff to assist us, which they PROMPTLY got what we asked for. Like in less than 40 seconds. Then it literally took her 27 minuets to get our bill once we asked for it.
Sadly, it deterred our other family members from returning.
My husband and myself still love the place, however, our service was so horrible this trip, it may be a while before we return.
Our over all experience was amazing. We weren't able to get a window seat, but even though we didn't we still really enjoyed the restaurant. The food is outstanding. The fillet was extremely juicy and tender. Asparagus and mash potatoes were delicious. The complimentary bread is nice, warm and fluffy. We were celebrating our anniversary so they decorated the table for us. Also, they gave us a complimentary desert and put "Happy Anniversary" on it which was super sweet. Our waitress was extremely friendly and right now. She made sure we had our drinks and food on time and kept checking on us to make sure we were enjoying our experience. If you are visiting Portland, this restaurant is a MUST GO for sure. It's perfect for any type of celebration and special occasions.
Overall it was an amazing time and experience! 😄 Can’t wait to go back!
We had not been in years and so glad we did. We opted for a light dinner from the appetizer menu and enjoyed all of the variety. Chef had a special halibut and shrimp ceviche special that was fantastic and very very fresh! We also enjoyed the California roll, Spring Rolls and steamed clams. Our waiter was wonderful, considerate of our pace, and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list selections. People were waiting up to an hour for a window seat; we sat in the center of the restaurant and enjoyed a beautiful view without the wait.
Great place to eat with a view. Very pricey $$ for what you get.
The food was so interesting and tasty!! And of course the view was unbelievable! Somehow we got a nice window seat and it made a great meal even better!
Must do if new to the city! Amazing views of the city from the 30th floor, excellent menu and top notch experience! Five star experience without any pretentiousness!
Always enjoy celebrating a special occasion here. Food was great and our family had a wonderful evening together. Great wine menu and not overpriced
The Calamari was ridiculously good! The view was amazing and the Halibut was incredible. Other than that is was just fantastic :)
Good view but the food was just OK.
Excellent view. Very romantic. Great service and great food!
The view is amazing. Service is excellent. Food is good but pricey.
Fantastic location for Sunday Brunch. Food is spectacular, as is the view. Really nice for a special occasion or just a friends get together.
Always great food. We flew in from Denver for our birthday dinner. Izzy, our waiter, by far the best we have ever experienced at any restaurant. Give that guy a raise and praise, he deserves every bit of it.
Decided to try out Portland City Grill for my husband's birthday...great choice for a celebration! Our table was decorated with birthday confetti and a signed card from the managers (plus a yummy chocolate mousse dessert at the end). Even though we didn't get a coveted window seat, we could still enjoy the view from a table one off (plus it was rainy!). The service and the food were EXCELLENT! we did get the steamer clams to start, so we were happy with the entree portions. The short ribs were divine!!! Paella flavorful and full of good stuff, and the clams were just right. Perfect start to another year!
Really good and respectful server
Anniversary date for the wife and I. We had a great dinner and a great evening.
Was disappointed with the food. Maybe our selection wasn't good. The beef ribs were tinder but way too sweet. The lobster was so so. The duck appetizer and Caesar salad were excellent though.
Tanner was fabulous!
The service was excellent and personable, the food was almost spectacularly delicious.
Pleasant and respectful wait staff. Also love Sunday brunch. You will be on time for any event you will be attending.
We came here for my wife’s birthday and from out of state. Nice scenic view of the waterfront. We had reservation and got their early. We sat at the bar and were given menus. I asked for a beer since the bartender never asked what we wanted. We wanted to get some appetizers, but the bartender didn’t ask if we wanted anything else. We then were shown our table by an employee. Our server was very good and checked us on several occasions. The food was good. We also were able to order some appetizers. Our seating area was perfect with a nice view of the waterfront.
Getting married in a few weeks. Went out on a date night and very much enjoyed the experience. Cost is high but so is the experience and the food is excellent!!!
Wonderful service at each stage (reservations changed and were accommodated several times - thank you!) made it a special event for my dad's 73rd birthday!
The food was very good, and Service was great. As an older couple, we really appreciated the soft music, which allowed us to carry on a normal conversation without having to shout into one another's ears! We were also there to talk with the event coordinator, Stepanie, who did a great job showing us the Jefferson Room where we will have both our simple wedding ceremony as well as a luncheon reception in a couple of months. Menu choices, ability to customize for our special occasion, the lovely room, spectacular view from two sides of the room, the very moderate price for such service, and lovely surroundings made this a very easy choice to make from among many venues in the area. We are confident that everything will be just as we have planned because the staff at Portland City Grill provide professional, efficient and friendly service.
The waiter was rude which ruined the experience. The views are great and the food mediocre. Save your money and time and go somewhere else.
Relatively expensive but classy and pleasant restaurant with a superb view of Portland. Definitely request a window table if you want to maximize this experience. The service was attentive and the food was quite good-- with the surprising exception of the Wagyu steak. I ordered this to be prepared very rare (bleu) and was served a somewhat tough piece of meat which was barely pink in the center and would have to be described as well done. The server agreed with my assessment, and offered to take it back but I declined as my guests had also been served and I did not want to disrupt the flow of the meal. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced, and we were able to enjoy a fine Argentine malbec with our meal.
Easter..was a wonderful time out with family.
Our server was delightful, knowledgeable and sincerely interested in making sure we composed and received a lovely meal. Bravo!
Easter brunch. Food was ok. Drinks not great. Restaurant had a old dated feel. View was Great! 45.00 per person eggs were cold. Prime rib was very good. We didn’t feel rushed and the waiter was very nice.
Awesome food and view. Will definitely return.
We've been to brunch several times, this was the first time for Easter Brunch and they didn't' disappoint. The food is fantastic as always with a few additional items for Easter. Instead of trying to maximize the turns on the tables, they staggered the reservations like some less expensive restaurants do not so there wasn't a mob at the buffet making it difficult to get to the food.
Great view. Great service. Professional service. (Claudious) Could not have asked for better.
Food and service were great!
