We had the specials - Pallea and Flat Iron Steak. Absolutely fantastic!!!! Great server with spot on suggestions. A beautiful night with a very special view. Definitely worth it for a special night.

I would recommend HH for any friend; however, I was not impressed with the meal. My steak had absolutely no flavor, and the mash potatoes tasted like instant mash. The wine was good, salad and soup were good but overpriced. Overall I would not recommend coming here for dinner but HH yes.

We went to celebrate my sons birthday and it wasn’t acknowledged. We were moved to a window table and had to repeatedly ask for silverware and napkins. Food was not replaced on a timely manner.

The welcoming staff were awesome as usual!
My first time with Kevin as a server and he was excellent! (I hope I recall the correct name)

The oysters were very few and far between.
The shrimp were very dry and chewy.

My first time with this type of experience with the food and I hope it is my last!

The view was amazing. The food was expensive and did not taste good. Although my husbands dinner was a lot better then mine but nothing great. I would only go back for the view and might try something different.

Everything was great. The only negative I have to say is the fact that I could not reserve a table against the window. I was told that I had to request when I come in. We arrived 20 min. Before our reservation time and when I requested it I was told it would be 1 hour and 30 min before we could get that table. This was my boyfriend’s 30th birthday dinner and I wanted it to be very special and chose Portland city grill for the view, so that was a little disappointing.

Had a great time ( a belated Valentine's date. The food was delicious but quite expensive. The window seat view was awesome. No doubt the view is partly responsible for the price of the food.

Mike our server was excellent, attentive, and pleasing. Our ribeye was wonderful. One was overcooked and Mike made sure a new one was immediately brought out without question. It was a bit dark maybe due to Valentine's day so it was hard to read the menu as we were sitting in middle section of the room. Everything was great!

The food is mediocre and wildly over priced for what you get, but if you are able to get a window view, the ambience is wonderful. If you're like us and aren't able to get a window seat (it's first come, first served for window seats), the experience/food are absolutely not worth the price.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Portland City Grill. They were able to accommodate our window seat request. The bartender treated us as if we were regulars. Service was great and the Happy Birthday decorations were unexpected and nice. The view was fantastic. The staff was attentive and focused on making sure we had what we needed. Parking is free and hassle free! It was an experience that went just right! I want to return again soon.

Overall we were very happy with our dining experience at the Portland City Grill. We were seated in a booth and the place was packed, which seemed surprising for a Tuesday night. The food was wonderful. The crab cakes are to die for! My husband ordered the wild caught King salmon Oscar with Wagyu steak. He is a fisherman and very particular about salmon. He was really impressed. I had the stuffed chicken breast, which also did not disappoint. The kale/onion/maybe spinach vegetable side on my plate left a little something to be desired, but didn’t detract from the experience. Our cocktails and desserts were also delicious. Our server was attentive, but not very engaging. We kind of felt like we were inconveniencing him when we asked for drinks. That would be the only area of less than awesome. Prepare to spend some money eating here, but it’s definitely worth it.

My two children and my wife and I dine in many nice restaurants. My wife enjoys steak so we have tried every great steak house in Portland . We both agreed that the Portland City Grill is well behind the other high end restaurants. Although our steaks had a good look to them, they were under cooked (almost raw when we ordered them medium) in all cases and the taste was inferior to other fine dining restaurants. We have eaten here more than once thinking they just had a bad night but now it’s confirmed, we would probably not choose Portland Grill if we wanted a great steak.

Excellent service from Mike. Attentive but not intrusive.

When I called about the reservation, I asked if champagne cocktails could be served as soon as our party was seated (as has happened at PCG when celebrating another special occasion - what changed?) I was told that wasn’t possible - all that could be provided was a bottle of champagne at the table. When we arrived, the bottle was just sitting on the table, not even in an ice bucket. These are small things but I was disappointed not to be able to surprise the bridal couple with festive cocktails.

Have been to the Portland City Grill numerous times, all high quality and enjoyable, but prices seemed to have escalated lately so that it's gone from a "very nice dinner" to a "special occasion dinner" to now being a "hope someone can put this on their expense account dinner."
