Unfortunately our breakfast experience was a little subpar. No espresso machine available for espresso drinks, no options for bread other than whole wheat. Just not much in the way of options.
The ambiance is nice, but other than that, no reason for me to return anytime soon.
It is wonderful to have Gracie's open again.
It is our best go-to place for Sunday Brunch.
Great Portland Institution with wonderful history and solid menu and flavor. Old school charm, great service.
Terry was amazing.
Had a very good brunch. The food was delicious, service attentive . Setting in Hotel Deluxe is so pretty.
Decided to come here for brunch with some friends, and the food was amazing! I love the variety and the service was also great. Eggs Benny was perfect and the potato Anna. Even the house coffee was delicious. We’ll be back!
The old breakfast menu has been replaced by someone's attempt to be eclectic and it resukts in the loss of all the dishes that made Gracie's special
No corned beef hash, bagel and lox, juices or even sausage and ham. Egg fried rice doesn't cut it. Won't be back.
Staff was friendly. Food was wonderful!
We hosted friends from out of town and Gracie’s nailed it for a true iconic Portland experience. The service and food did not disappoint either .
Lovey, elegant place for brunch. Food and service fabulous
Lovely dining room- elegant and calm. Limited lunch and breakfast menu made more so as they were out of items. The service was incredibly slow and the wait staff disappeared without charging my card! I had to go look for them !!! The food was delicious
Been dining at Gracie’s for years. Was a bit nervous to hear they have a new chef, however the food was spectacular! The lobster Benedict was prepared perfectly. The only drawback was finding out their cocktail and spirits menu is now very limited (guessing due in part to the Driftwood being closed). Not a big deal though, we still got our mimosas in!
As always, the staff was so welcoming and friendly. Terry is wonderful and made our experience great! Definitely will continue to dine at Gracie’s again and again!
Welcome back!!! We missed you. Breakfast was wonderful. We enjoyed the new changes in the menu, however I would love to see a vegetable Benedict--avacado and tomato perhaps? The vegetable hash was very good. Thank you for Terry, our waiter; he was excellent.
Great service and a fantastic atmosphere for brunch.
Portland Dining Month and Anniversary.
We took advantage of “Dine-out Downtown” month to sample this restaurant for the first time. Even if the food and service had not been great, the beauty of the design and decorations of this restaurant made for a lovely, romantic, evening. It really took you back to the elegance of less frenetic times in the early part of the 20th century.
The restaurant was not busy because of coronavirus, and there seemed to be just one server. However, the gracious Liberty handled the job superbly, at one time covering six tables including a group. She was assisted by the chef who at times brought courses from the kitchen.
There was a reasonable choice on the special menu for the month, and all courses my wife and I had were very good, and often had a twist that took them out of the ordinary. My wife’s first course was marinated prawns with a very interesting salad which included avocado, fennel, and hearts of palm. My main course of King Salmon might sound ordinary, but the salmon was beautifully cooked, and the accompaniments of Great Northern beans, Swiss chard, and andouille sausage lifted the dish. All the desserts were decadent!
There were some interesting wines available, but many were slightly over-priced as is usual in a hotel restaurant.
We intend to return to sample the whole menu.
Our waiter was amazing. The food was over the top. The Chef came out to talk to us. It was an excellent experience.
I really want to love Gracie's. The cocktails are from the driftwood lounge across the hall, totally worth it. But the food is pedestrian at best using things like (and I dont know for a fact, but the taste was remarkably similar) canned demi-glace sauces and gluey mashed potatoes. There were bright spots in the food. But unfortunately they were minimal. Also, when a server says "we prepare our salmon medium rare, is that ok with you?" I expect something less than well done salmon. Desserts were a complete miss. The service was great, the space is nice and open. But for prices on par with the better dining establishments in Portland, I think distancing themselves from Sysco pre-made products is the bare minimum one could ask. Hire a new chef, let the high school lunch lady go.
Tremendous service! Benjamin was outstanding in every way. The food was excellent as always, especially the vegetables on the side.
Great, great service
Fantastic Hotel/Building. Food was not good. Bland. Service was also not great. Inattentive. May be a good place to stop for a drink and see this amazing building. However with so many good food choices in Portland I would pick a different place to eat.
An enjoyable experience start to finish. We loved our server. The food was delicious and very well presented. The wine pairings were great. An elegant dining experience!
We live gracies. From a pre dinner cocktail in the driftwood to fine dining. Great food and service and great flavors. The best
The Portland Monthly Dining menu was delicious! One of my top best meals!
$6 for a tiny bowl of fruit. Not a vegan-friendly spot, or good value. There are much better places to go.
Our party of 4 took advantage of Portland Dining Month to dine at Gracie's. We were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful choices in appetizers, main and dessert courses. I had a shrimp salad that was prepared perfectly. Two people ordered the braised beef which was very tender and full of flavor. We all ordered the Creme Brulee for dessert and it also showed the level of care in preparation. The ambience of Gracie's is lovely and conducive to conversation. Our server was very professional and there at our table at the right moments. Loved this place and dinner. I would highly recommend and will return to Gracie's to dine again.
Amazing food and excellent service. A true treat for us all !
Terrific all the way around!
Portland Dining. Great ambiance! Loved the bar and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and service. We’ll be back!
The smoked salmon hash had to be returned the 1st time as it was overcooked, greasy and contained very little salmon. The 2nd time around,, there were a few more bites of salmon, but it was still greasy, looked dark brown, and the potatoes were not hashed at all, but entirely small round potatoes cut in half. The 2 poached eggs were OK.
This was a big disappointment, but I have been gone from Portland for 6 years, and the quality at Gracie's has apparently gone way down hill since then. This use to be my favorite dish here.
My server, tried his best to put a happy face on it all, and checked my grapefruit juice off the check, as a way of showing good faith. Unfortunately, I won't be returning to Gracie's. Too many other good brunch spots in PDX.
Presentation was outstanding. The flavor fantastic. Service is always very good. The staff is always friendly. Great brunch!
Overall, it was a very nice experience. It was my birthday dinner and it was very fun to have celebrated it there. The service was good and the food was amazing!
Very nice! Drag was very friendly and timely with assistance and attention. We received our food quickly and it was delicious. Amazing experience
Gracie’s is always so much fun and the food is delicious, too. For me, it’s like entering into a bygone era and it feels so romantic. The service is top notch, also.
the environment is great. the food is mediocre, but fine.
Absolutely fantastic experience! Will definitely come back! I had the seared Salmon while my wife ate the chicken Parmesan, both meals were amazing.
First time here and honestly I won’t be back. The service was aggressively bad both in terms of attitude as well as responsiveness at times. Hey appeared to be way understaffed for a Sunday brunch spot. The food was average at best for all of the diners I was with.
Had lunch brunch with group of 6. Menu was perfect as 2 people chose lunch items and four had breakfast/brunch items. Everyone’s food was perfectly prepared. Sat in booth/table in rear of restaurant which was perfect for talking and catching up. Interior is consistently great each time we go.
At $100/person, the value wasn’t there.
