The food was good but not great. Steaks ordered medium-well were medium-rare. Pasta was very thick and somewhat gummy. Room was quite dark.

Couldn’t ask for a better experience. The service was attentive, food amazing, and view unbeatable. One of my favorite restaurants in the Pacific Northwest.

Very good but not the best in town. When I made the reservation I did note we were celebrating our anniversary but it wasn’t mentioned by our waiter.

Get the calamari! Beef dishes were pricey. Parking at garage next door was not validated.

The waygu 10oz sirloin was tough in half the spots. And the pork chop was dry and over cooked. We loved the creme broilie that made us happy at the end because the dinner was very underwhelming. Didn’t want to say anything because my gf didn’t want to be a trouble. Thank you.

Our wait staff seemed very uninterested in serving our table. We were never asked about refills and when our food was served, we were not asked how it was until we were finished. The food was served with way too much dressing, my ribs had way too much fat which made it unpalatable and my spouse’s steak was served rare when he had asked for medium. We do not plan on returning.

The service, food, view, and atmosphere were the best!

The website says dress is "business casual." But we saw multiple tables of customers with: swim shorts, t-shirts, swim tops, and jean shorts. It looked like eating at McDonald's at the beach and spending $50 on a burger.

Well be back but hope they enforce the dress code in the future.

Lovely staff and great view. Was assigned a window seat upon arrival without need of request. They put a card on the table that said "happy anniversary!" for us (as it was our anniversary). Great service and great food.

Friendly service, attentive and fast. Good menu and reasonable wine selection/prices. Could do with a wider choice on the menu but that's the case in many restaurants at the moment. They do the staples well. Very enjoyable, and of course, tremendous view over Portland.

It was my daughter’s 17th birthday. I asked her to pick a place to go. She told me that she’s always heard good things about Portland City Grill and I told her we should try it.

We received a sit by the window overlooking the city. It was very beautiful.

Our waitress was awesome, friendly and ensured everything was perfect fir us.

The food was outstanding. My daughter didn’t like the sauce on her chicken, but we got that fixed and she loved it.

I would recommend City Grill for anyone looking fir great food and fantastic service.

Our server was the absolute best we have ever experienced
He is from Alaska and is having a BABY girl in the next five months
His attendance and expertise and sense of humor were second to none
He made our dinner and experience over the top even better than our window seat
For means of identity we had 7:15 reservations
My highest commendation
We will return
Beautiful venue
Incredible yet simple food but freshness and flavor abounded

There is something amiss here. It does not feel like the restaurant we used to love to go to. It feels old, musty, and dated. The menu has not changed but the quality is not what it used to be. They are milking their past reputation and if Portland begins to see a resurgence of new dining locations, all they will have to sell is their view, which, is amazing. The other issue, I have always had with them is they complicate seating a little too much. It's like going to a bank in 1920s. I hope they come back. I used to love this place.
