We made reservations for 5:15 for happy hour on thursday,December 12 and when we got there we were told that the happy hour bar was reserved for a private party. So we said we would have happy hour where ever available. They said we could not have happy hour by a window but could have it up ata booth up against the wall. We said fine. Waitor said he had to check. He came back and said that we could not have happy hour there. We were there within happy hour and were not served. That did not make sense. We wereserved the regular menu and paid non happy hour prices. Not ok. We will not be returning anytime soon. Have shared our experience with our friends.

The view is spectacular. The food is lovely and the service was superb. The noise level is disturbing. The restaurant need to put ceiling baffles or noise deadeners so a conversation is much easier.

We had a lovely time, dinner was very good. My lobster tail was so tender. My only complaint was that we were sitting under a vent and we were all freezing! They said they turned up the heat but we never felt it!

The location, city view and staff were all outstanding. The mezza plate veggies were undercooked. Overall, the price was steep for the food quality.

The Kim Chee calamari was one of the best appetizers I have ever had. The crab Louie was also really good as well as the lobster bisque.

Even though I have been coming to the Chart House for 15 plus years, this is the first year that the hostess area really lacked in professionalism. I booked a party of 3. Two of the people had told the hostess that they would be downstairs at the bar and to please let them know when the 3rd person arrived. No one told the 2 who were waiting on me that I have arrived and no one told me that the other 2 were downstairs. I had inquired if the other 2 were there and the hostess said no. I waited for 15 minutes for the other 2 people and my friends are the ones who found me. One of my friends complained to the hostess and all she got was a blank stare. The staff has always been spot on, but not this night. One girl said it was her first day and I don't feel that she had adequate training. It is not a good representation of the restaurant. I felt the 2 hostesses would be better placed in a less classy restaurant. The food was great as usual.

It was a quiet Sunday. We dined in the lower level. The SHRIMP, CRAB, AVOCADO + MANGO STACK was wonderful. The Crab Cake was as good as Tom Douglas' (our fav Seattle restaurant) My Husbands Eggs benedict was PERFECT and he is fussy!!! Our server Max was 10 star!!!!! Samuel at the bar was great. Good wine list also!!!

Everyone we met that night from the valets to our servers were extremely friendly and attentive. The view was excellent as far as we could tell, loads of lights, a return in the daytime I am sure would be spectacular.

Thanksgiving dinner. Food was cold and dry. We all ordered the Thanksgiving dinner. I think it was pre-plated. Brought to us before our drinks. Very rushed experience. Expected better especially due to the cost.

Chart House was open Thanksgiving Day, and I made reservations a week in advance. They had traditional Thanksgiving fare on the menu but we didn't order any of it. Instead we had the coconut shrimp, Alaska king crab legs, tuna, sizzling mushrooms and of course the chocolate lava cake. Every dish was cooked to perfection, prepared beautifully and very enjoyable. Even the drinks we ordered--- one was a sangria but it looked like Sprite, and the other was a low end port. We left feeling very, very satisfied and happy with the entire experience, even on what must have been a very busy night for the restaurant. We'll be doing this again every Thanksgiving, as it was a pleasure all around.

Our server, Peter, was lovely--- personable, professional and on his game.

Our server rescued our evening. The front desk was in chaos. The hostesses passed right over our reservation, seating several other parties of our size who had later reservations. No apology was offered, and we were preparing to leave when they suddenly found a table for us. A terrible start to Thanksgiving. BUT, our server, Peter, was outstanding. He was fun, very efficient, worked extremely hard to make every one of his tables feel important. He was excellent in every way. The food, too, was impressive, especially considering the number of people served. Peter deserves a commendation (I am sorry I don't have his last name for you.) The front desk needs a total revision, and a MANAGER in front. Please. We have experienced this before with the front desk at Chart House, and a remedy is needed, as this is otherwise such an excellent restaurant.

We went Thanksgiving day and had traditional turkey. It wasn’t at the quality level we expected for the price. Dry turkey, sliced white meat from a loaf and packaged dressing. If a quality restaurant decides to offer thanksgiving meals, they should make more of an effort. Pies tasted like they were reheated from a frozen box pie. Service was good and certainly the view from this Charthouse was great!

We love the Chart House, but the Thanksgiving dinner was expensive, processed food. Very hot in there, it was very crowded and so loud, we couldn't have a normal conversation. We've eaten out for Thanksgiving at other places, and had a wonderful meal. Stuffing was dry, hardly any gravy, and the turkey had not been carved off a fresh bird. Would not recommend Chart House for this kind of celebration.

Thanksgiving Dinner was most excellent this year! With our new home still under construction, and no extended family obligations, The Chart house in Portland was the perfect fit! The turkey dinner was complete to perfection with mashed potatoes, stuffing, yams, creamed spinach, and choice of pumpkin or pecan pie!!! Of course, two of us took advantage of the full menu to devour the most delicious prime rib dinner and last but not least broiled wild Pacific salmon! Thank-you Chart house for a delicious meal to celebrate another memorable year in the greater Portland area!!

As always we were impressed by the quality of chart house. Service is excellent and although the food was exceptional , dessert was lacking a bit. I attribute it to the fact that we ordered the pumpkin pie on thanksgiving which was likely prepared en masse. We ordered prime rib off the menu, skipped the turkey dinner special that most customers ordered. Prime rib was beyond amazing. View was heavenly

Great food and service as usual. I’m a little confused at the rock music playing as background music in a nice place like this. It’s not even soft rock it’s like metal and regular rock. I’m all for it but how about something relaxing when your paying $300 on dinner. I wore out Van Halen in the 80s.

We had a great experience overall! Food and service were both very good. We were seated close to the kitchen so it was a little noisy but overall it didn’t diminish from our good experience.
