My salad was drenching in sauce and I couldn’t eat it. Server never asked if it was good.

Calamari spot was good but I wish we were forewarned about how plentiful it was.

The server herself was great, and the food was good. It always is. But people really don’t go here just for the food. The restaurant states window seats are not reservable. Fair enough. Totally makes sense. When they seated us, they stated that there were no more window seats available. No problem. It is what it is, right? Except we counted at least five of them clearly vacant on the way to our table (one was still sitting empty 20 minutes after we were seated). When pressed, the host said "let me see what I can do" and came back saying it’d be another hour to sit at the window, even though we were looking right at the open and "totally-not-reservable" tables right there. When we asked why there were vacant window tables we couldn’t sit in if they’re not reservable, she snidely said it’s first come first serve, and that lots of people showed up and requested tables before we did (as if we were somehow acting entitled by requesting to sit at a clearly open and supposedly unreservable table). This of course makes zero sense. If people were there before us, why weren’t they seated, and why would a table still be open 20 minutes after we were? So either they were indeed reservable; just not for everyone, or they simply didn’t want to give one to us. In any case, I guess we’re not part of the secret club. Unless you are, don’t go here expecting a fair shot at a window table.

Whenever I have out of town guests, business or personal, I always take them to PCG.
I have been coming to PCG for years. I'm never disappointed.

The view was amazing, service was prompt and courteous, and all of the food was excellent. Unfortunately, the price was very high for a brunch buffet, with no apparent option to order lunch on a Sunday. Brunch for my wife and I came to $120 including a small tip. It was fun to try once, but doubt I would return at those prices.

Wonderful View and Ambiance to celebrate my parents 31st wedding anniversary. They have never been to Portland City Grill and really loved the food and service. It was definitely louder than usual, but it was a Saturday evening on St. patricks day weekend so the bar was full.

Ordered the Surf and Turf (Filet Mignon and Scallops) special which was decent but at the price one pays, I was informed that it did not include a salad or soup. When entrees are close to $70 they should include a salad. Personally, I think this is and was lame. It’s not like I don’t know fine dining either (see my glowing recent review of Ox also in Portland, OR and Ariana in Bend, OR). Waiter was also kind of off putting too as he seemed kind of irritated that we weren’t drinking. He barely checked in on us... Hadn’t been to Portland City Grill in a while and probably won’t be back for a while either. Bottom line, prices are too high for the quality and frankly, the no salad w entree... maybe they know they have that view so nothing else really matters?

It was a very comfortable nice lunch I think the only thing that was over done and I know a lot of people would appreciate it is how many times we were asked how we were doing or how was our food. I don’t mind being asked a couple times during the meal but it was like five or six times maybe even more during the meal and it was just disruptive at that point.

We were celebrating our 3 year anniversary as a couple and also getting engaged earlier that day. The duck appetizer was very good. The wagyu steak was amazing. I enjoyed both the Manhattan and old fashioned. Both the hazelnut dessert and cheesecake were divine. Thank you for the amazing date night.

Amazing food, waiter, and overall experience. He has us if we were here for a special occasion and we shared that it was our anniversary. He came back with confetti for our table, and champagne. He also treated us to a special chocolate mousse after our meal. He was so attentive and great. I would 10/10 recommend this place to anyone visiting.
