Staff got the order of our dinner wrong, forgot about our drink order. The food was average at best. The Caesar salad was a disaster. Don’t think we will be coming back.

Totally wowwed by this new Chef and his dinner service. Greeted promptly at the door by a hostess who was dressed in vintage black and gold, very classy. We were sat, then tended to by a nice young lady named Jill who was prompt and brought bread compliments of the house. We enjoyed the shrimp skewers, some olives, a charred salad which was perfectly prepared, their house fried chicken which was very crispy, and the clams. Not a bad one in the batch! The kicker was their affogato cocktail at the end, shared by the two of us. Inventive, fun, and treated us well. We will be back!

Terrible food, I feel bad for the servers. Do not go here expecting a steak house; the menu has been significantly reduced by the new chef to help simplify things for the new team in the kitchen (major red flag). The grilled radicchio salad was mushy and bitter. It was the worst salad we’ve ever been served. Our steaks were served in pasta dishes (even our server was surprised they no longer serve them on plates). The New York ordered medium rare was mostly raw and cold. The Filet was passable but the potato purée was flavorless and cold. The most laughable dish was the charred sweetcorn which was literally 1/2 of a cob cut into 3 pieces for $6 that was inedible (how can you screw up corn)?! Wouldn’t be surprised to see this place gone in 6 months.

As a former restaurant owner, it is great to see a place we have enjoyed for so many years continue to innovate and "keep up with the times" without changing the things we love. You guys have added to the experience with pleasant waiters, a nice new GM, and a bigger menu and it is noticeable. Loving the newest touches, glad you kept the Lewis and Clark on the cocktail list too :)

We were greeted promptly and sat in a nice warm nook near the windows. I ordered the caresar, which was delicious, and the prawns which were perfeclty done. My date did not have an appetizer but did remark that my shrimp was very good. Drinks were very delicious, the "tea and shade" being the crowd favorite, then skipping over to their dealer's choice of a "be my huckleberry" which was also very good. Entrees came out in due time, the fettuccini was ooey-gooey yum and my steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare with whipped up potatoes and little cobs of corn. Seems the southern love is showing this season at 23Hoyt. I am into it!

I can't get enough of 23rd and Hoyt. They have the best service. The menu has something for everyone. The staff is consistently polite and so kind. I always bring clients and visitors for brunch or dinner. Mimosas or a good glass of wine on the weekend. LOVE IT.

My wife Caroll and I have enjoyed 23Hoyt for many years and will continue to do so. Sharp attention to guests, they even brought a round of champagne for our anniversary this afternoon without us ordering it. If you end up in the neighborhood, give them a shot.

Our favorite place to eat out while in Portland. Prices are very fair for the caliber of food, ambience, and service. Casual dress in an upscale restaurant. Kid's menu tops out at $8.50 which is nice. Entrees average about $30-$40. Just went for my birthday and couldn't be happier.

So frustrated to be treated the way our party of 8 (we were hosting friends from out of town) was this evening! Table was so dark we had to pull out our phones to read the menu. We then were served drinks and appetizers followed. But then we sat for nearly 45 minutes before anyone came to check on us! We didn’t order more drinks but certainly would have. Food finally came out without an explanation. Then start disappeared again so to get our bill we all stood up and started putting our coats on. Waitress then came over and asked if we wanted dessert. We passed and paid and left. It may have been 1/2 full Thursday night when we went. No excuse for the way we were ignored, especially considering how much we spent there. Built in tip on the check so I didn’t bother to add anything extra. Very disappointed. Too many other options for good dinner and drinks to have to put up with this.

Servers were annoyed that I had kids with me even though they feature a kids menu. The kids menus were not printed, they were out of rootbeer and fruit from the kids menu. While this restaurant is featured on OpenTable right now I chose it, for our one dinner in Portland during this quick trip it was a very disappointing experience.

Not too busy the evening we ate dinner there so were quite surprised at very slowly our main course was delivered. The drinks and appetizer arrived promptly and then we waited and waited. Our server did come over offering to sell us another round of drinks & did apologize for the slowness.... was it on purpose? Only about 20% of the tables were filled. We enjoyed the decor and the food, once it arrived -- but the scheduling seemed odd & could have been a problem if we'd had plans for after dinner.

My boyfriend and I had dinner reservations at 6, and we were seated promptly in a nice romantic dim corner with lots of candles. There was happy hour until 6:30 on Saturday and we took advantage of the menu. We shared hand dipped Onion Rings, a Bacon , Egg Cheeseburger, Cesar Salad and Shrimp and Grits with a Lemon Wine sauce. We absolutely loved everything we had. The service was stellar and personable and the food was delicious and served hot and quickly. We will be coming back for sure!

Had to come back after the GREAT service we received for burger week. Honestly, the regular dinner menu looked very appealing from the window, but we were only there for a burger. This time around, I brought some business/work friends and each of us (4) were very impressed. Initially, we sat for Happy Hour and ordered a few items, spiced nuts, a few caesars, deviled eggs, and spicy mac. All of which very good. The caesar is interesting, whole leaf romaine hearts that you can pick up and crunch down on, fully dressed with parm and crutons. Very fresh and stood out to me.

A few steaks and a duck entree for the table, all temps checked out and the duck (mine) was particularly good. The roasted apple and carrot on top of farro is out of this world. Slightly tart, perfect "fatty" salt levels, farro is a great vehicle, less boring than wild rice or something.

No dessert this time around but only because we needed to skidattle! Seems there is a lot to experience here. We ordered a few bottles of Pinot, which I remember as being good but looking at what esle they offer, I would say I need to keep heading back for more.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at 23Hoyt. The hostess Ashley was excellent as was the entire wait staff. The yellow squash appetizer was a 1st time for me and I’ll definitely have it again. The hangar steak was cooked perfectly as well.

This was our 3rd time visiting 23rd and Hoyt. The tomato bruschetta was clunky and hard to eat with huge chunks of cucumber and tomatoes falling off the bread. The shrimp and grits were under seasoned and the mushroom pasta was undercooked and not very flavorful. Our server did not even offer us dessert and just dropped the check. Nothing was overly terrible but you expect more if you paying a lot for the food and experience. Our first time was fantastic but it has gone down hill since then. We won't be back, there are too many other places that are AMAZING!

We’ve really really tried to like this place. It’s near our house and always looks like it should be good and has a great menu. We have given it so many chances and everytime the service lets it down. It’s usually slow, a few times our food has been cold, occasionally we’ve had indifferent servers. Individually these are annoying but not bad enough to stop us forgetting about it and giving it another go. Sadly each time we go we are reminded while it’s been a while since we’ve been there. Last week I went back with some friends and the service was so bad to the point of rudeness that I’ve now permanently scrubbed this restaurant from my list. Disappointing that such a great location doesn’t care more about its customers.

It's a more upscale restaurant. I had the salmon and it was a bit dry. The short ribs were excellent. Th bread is great. The kale side was some of the best kale ever. The gumbo was a good size and I was presently surprised. They even gave a good amount of shrimp. It's a good place fora date or business meeting. Very nice ambience.

Ive never really known about this place but stopped in yesterday for a little snack after hearing the smooth jams outside :) At first we thought it would be a little pricey btu looking at the menu, happy hour was going on and we got a good deal. For me, the spicy mac, our caesar, and that gigantic corn dog were easily good and plentiful--the wings were a little sweet but also good. I like that they brought out a warm napkin for hands too because you know it was all over the place. Very big wing too. I was actually surprized they had them on happyhour because they were so big. Had a good time, will try them again for dinner soon.

Visited 23Hoyt over the weekend and the service is still stellar, food is getting better by the week, and it seems they are really settling into their new menu! Patio was packed so we waited, then eventually sat on the 23rd side. Ordered their new smoked wings and some other items. Gotta mention those wings. Sweet and savory, gigantic an on the bone. Thanks again!

This was our 3rd time there and past 2 were not impressive. Apps were good and timely (bruschetta and ceased salad). Main meal was delivered 1.25 hours after sitting and was just okay. Ordered mushroom fettuccine and it was a smaller portion of fettuccine with about 6 pieces of mushroom, barbecue cauliflower was basic and kale was tough. Waiter was unapologetic about long wait for main course - did not visit table and ignored eye contact while we waited. Dining room was not busy so we are unsure why there was such a long wait.

Hello Anonymous, 3 visits. Thank you! It would be helpful to know who your server was, a description. When you visited, there was a large wedding reception in the mezzanine. It was a very busy night for the kitchen. It sounds like your table's timing may have been affected by the evening's event. I am sorry this was your experience. I will look into the vegetarian entree you describe here. It has been received well in the recent past. Please respond. I believe we can make this right for you. Thx
