Mother’s Day. Was incredibly pleasant until the last 30 minutes when an extremely chauvinistic man was sat near us. He continued to proclaim his opinions, quite loudly, to his table and it made our experience almost unbearable. Other than that everything was perfect!

I took my wife to Portland City Grill for her birthday as a surprise and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Less noise. Fantastic view of Portland City. Amazing reception. Very good food. My wife was given a free birthday cake at the end and a Portland City Grill Happy Birthday card. We enjoyed it overall.

I have absolutely zero problem paying $75 for a steak or $20 for 5 shrimp if it is delicious, prepared with care, attention to detail, and I get my money’s worth out of it. This could not be further form my experience here Monday night. The steak was severely over cooked (ordered med-rare and hardly had any pink to speak of, let alone blood that should be present in a MR) and had the level of seasoning I’d expect from a dad grilling in his backyard. The shrimp were bland and boring, and the Caesar salad was honestly one of the worst I’ve ever had. I’ve had a better Caesar with bottled dressing from the grocery store and iceburg lettuce. If I’m going to spend that kind of money on a meal I expect it to taste as if it were at least approaching deliciousness. I would have been disappointed had I spent $50; I am disgusted that I spent $250.

Amazing service to accompany our hand-crafted cocktails and our perfectly cooked meal. I applaud the Wagyu prime rib for it was absolutely choice. I love the minimalist, mood-lit setting with the unbeatable view of the city. We will be back.

Portland City Grill has always been one of my favorite spots to enjoy Portland from the sky. To be fair I have had many great experiences at this restaurant and I will always recommend it to anyone that asks. I rated the food low here because the steak was sent back twice and it was still gross. The waiter was absolutely amazing and got it taken off the bill and we still had a great experience.

Service in the lounge area does increase the window seating, but is not quite the "Ambiance" - still the best view (and food) in town!

Greeted with a smile by a young man and taken to a window table which seemed like a 2nd dining room. We appreciated the space between tables.
Our server was a very pretty and pleasant woman. She let us enjoy our martini and appetizer before taking our dinner order My husbands kalbi ribs ere a bit disappointing as kalbi ribs are usually flanken style but was a very large short rib without much flavor. My dinner was fabulous! it was the scallops and our server substituted the sweet potato with my favorite mushroom risotto I forgot to mention we had a california roll with our martinis!
It was an enjoyable evening.

We made reservations for my husband's 80th birthday and even though capacity allowed had been cut in half 2 weeks earlier, not only did the restaurant honor our reservation but gave us a great window seat. The food was excellent and they brought us a surprise free dessert of chocolate lava cake, which was the dessert we had on our first date. Everything was perfect!

Still worth it going and enjoying the night up there.

We came to celebrate our anniversaries in the PNW (10 years for my husband and I and 1 year for my sister). We couldn’t have been more pleased. Our pork chops were fabulous. My sister had the tuna nicoise (with large slices of sashimi tuna), which was huge and gorgeous. Our server was very knowledgeable about wines and the menu and a treat to talk to. If I could afford it, I’d be back every night. As is, when celebrating a major event, there is no better place than Portland City Grill.

First time in over a year out to dinner due to covid. Celebrated our daughter’s birthday. Our service from Ellie was excellent. Since there were 6 of us we ordered all different items from menu and they were all delicious. Our appetizers of calamari and crab cakes were outstanding. They opened up other rooms of the restaurant to safely spread out the dining options. We were in a dining area with spectacular views of the city which a party of six would normally not have. Although we still wore our masks while walking in out of public areas, we felt at ease as we dined.

After a long time not being able to eat in a restaurant, it was a wonderful treat to be able to celebrate a birthday on top of the world! The food was fine, however all a little on the salty side and it could have been warmer. But very tasty. The menu is a little boring and I decided to go with two starters. But I guess this will change again, after we can go back to normal.
