don't get the paella more rice than anything - very disappointing
The biggest positive here is its closeness to the theaters.
Headwaters is a great place for Sunday bruch. We were staying at a close by hotel and found this place by accident. But we are glad we did. The avocado toast with fresh Dungeness crab was delicious. The Dungeness crab cake eggs Benedict was divine. And the coffee was top notch.
King salmon entree was awesome.
Took a client here for dinner while in town. The food was absolutely amazing. From the main course to the dessert everything was spot on. Delicious! The staff were friendly and attentive. Will definitely go back when I return to Portland.
Our service was sub par to say the least. Wait time just to be greeted by our waitress was excessive and we only found out that there were dinner specials after hearing a waiter explain them to the table next to us (after we had already ordered). My husband's dinner was prepared well and tasted great, although price was a bit excessive for what was served. My dish was extremely overcooked. Overall, just a disappointing dining experience.
This was a very disappointing evening. My wife and I met a friend there for dinner expecting Paley-quality food and service. That it was not. The highlight of the evening was my wife's scallop main dish. My scallop crudo was nearly flavorless and somewhat gelatinous, and our friend's paella was served with clearly undercooked shrimp. The paella was returned to the kitchen instead of simply providing fully-cooked shrimp. In the process of reheating, the entire dish became overcooked. Additionally, the small iron skillet was so hot that my friend was burned when she accidentally bumped it. There were two errors in our order. We ordered two wines and a cocktail; staff brought the wrong cocktail. Instead of bringing the paella with our main dishes, a duplicate order of scallops was brought. It was another fifteen or so minutes before the paella was present at the table. Staff was very polite and accommodating following the above-described errors by comping the paella and providing complimentary dessert, the this comedy should not have occurred. We enjoy Paley's Place and Imperial, so when we need a Paley fix, we'll go there.
The best Fish & Chips in town!!! The service and food was excellent.
We’ve been coming to this restaurant since it first opened. The quality of the seafood is superb. Last night i had the raw sea scallops with a grating of foi gras. Unbelievably good. My only complaint is the noise level. We were seated in the main part of the restaurant and it wasn’t even completely full and the four of us had trouble hearing the other. It’s the one thing that keeps us from going back more often. We asked our server if we could have our dessert in the inner court and she accommodated us. We could finally talk in a quiet space.
We drive a hour to get this restaurant for special. Occasions. Today the usually things we enjoy were not on the menu. The service was slow and the food tasted OK NOT the usual amazing ! Disappointed
First time in Portland and we really enjoyed our night out. The wine was delicious, the seafood was great and the service and hospitality was fantastic. We would return.
We enjoyed the Saturday brunch menu very much, as it offered something to fit whatever you were hungry for. I had the Nicoise salad and the tuna was perfectly cooked and all the other flavors complemented it perfectly. My companion had the Caesar salad and was able to add fresh crab to it and enjoyed it very much. The fresh Parker roll was warm and delicious!
love this place. only problem was when the kitchen was roasting some chilies, the smoke caused severe pulmonary and eye irritation, for the whole restaurant thru the bar patrons. They need a better fan in the kitchen. The servers quickly opened the windows to relieve our searing lungs
once again we had a problem with the bar
this time my husband ordered his standard cocktail and was told - sorry we don’t carry any Johnie Walker Scotch
This came as a surprise and a shock
Since when does a full bar choose to not carry Johny Walker?
Some of the food was under seasoned like the fish and the steelhead tartare
the fries were awesome
the service was great
I am a fan of Paley's restaurants and had just dined at Imperial several nights before which was, as always, quite good with great service. I dined at Headwaters early on Saturday night. Receiving our cocktails was incredibly slow even though the restaurant was slow, and given the Vieux Carre was on tap it is a mystery. The timing of the meal was off. Even though we had indicated we'd like to order wine the waiter never checked back and we brought it up on a rare visit to the table. Our entrees came and while the waiter was fileting a dining companion's fish I asked about the wine and was told the manager was bringing it. It came well after we started our meal. Definitely service improvements are needed from my experience on this visit. It did leave us disappointed given the expectation of an entertaining and enjoyable evening.
What happened? We had a wonderful dinner with friends at Headwaters mid-April. Last Tuesday, August 22, we went back with another couple and the food was noticeably different. Not good. The fish in the fish and chips was way overdone and therefore, dry. The fries were soggy. The poke portion has noticeable grown smaller. The paella was far from authenic; the rice was terrible. The scallops were salty and not too tastey. In the months since our last visit the food noticeably degraded. What happened? New chef? No chef? Too bad because this was a really nice place for a pre-theater dinner.
Everything we ordered was excellent. Our food server was outstanding. Ambiance comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
Wonderful service and yummy food and tasty beverages! Great atmosphere!
Food was excellent and service very friendly. Prices reasonable. Especially enjoyed the branzino and the parker house rolls :)
Great location, but the remodel has followed the NW inspired theme being bright with lots of hard surfaces. The place was 1/2 full at 7:15 dinner for 2 (on a Wednesday), no separation - kitchen, bar - its all wide open and loud. Perfect for a group of professionals to grab a drink and talk shop after work. Not a place for an intimate dining experience. And why the "micro" tables for groups of 2? They've got the space - instead, I have one of their 20-bistro tables with no room for the $30 entree, the wine or glasses. Don't about the bread basket and side plates - its not offered. Food was just ok - service ranged from being ignored to slow - presentation of the server - disheveled hair, dirty apron, and horrible teeth - not the personal presentation I was expecting at the Heathman Hotel - sorry, there is a place for setting personal appearance standards when the product is the experience. Love the Heathman, will dine elsewhere.
Delicious food and creative menu offerings. I had the summer bean and nectarine salad as a starter, my son the chowder, both delicious. For main course i had the scallops which were cooked perfectly and very tasty. My son had an incredible pork chop, tender and juicy. The service was outstanding, friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back!!
The food was excellent - Ahi Tuna Poke for starter; Scallops and Catch of the Day for mains - and service was attentive and personable. Will return.
Great place, great food and great service! What more can you ask for?
I don’t typically leave a restaurant feeling like the food was overpriced, but that’s the way I felt leaving Headwaters. The portions were small. The salmon was undercooked and served only with a side of cucumber. You have to pay for bread, which is ridiculous. The only real bright spot was the poorly named “potato salad” which is actually cooked potatoes with butter or oil and some pretty good spices.
We started with the rockfish fish and chips, which was extremely bland. Two people in our party ordeeed it and were surprised a restaurant of this calibur served us the worst fish and chips we'd ever ordered. Ther server was exceptional and brought us the prosciutto wrapped halibut with sea beans puree which other people in our party also had ordered. We all agreed the halibit was in was extremely salty. So here we were on dish extremely bland and on the ither side of the pallet spectrum extremely salty. All our drinks, appetizers, and sides were exceptional. The server was perfect. The atmosphere delivered. One person in our party ordered steak which was wonderful!
The food was very good and had large portions (mussels were enormous for a starter) Halibut tasty but a bit dry
The restaurant did s good job of modifying for genuine food allergies
The restaurant was fairly full but my orders were wrong twice and my wine took forever second round
I think the kitchen was a bit off on delivery that night
NOTE: the restaurant did the right thing ! I was given a substitute app when my order for a starter and wine 20 mins late was gratis
Pet peeve do not charge me for a single roll hate bread charges figure it out !
Very good food and service. Prices a bit high even for the good food. 2 people no alcohol or dessert, one appetizer. $ 60 WITH tip for lunch.
I have been to the Heathman for different meals in the past. All were lovely with incredible service.
On this day for brunch, the server seemed to forget we were there. We ordered eggs Benedict. While the hollandaise sauce was wonderful, the dish was cold. My white peach Bellini was to have been made with peach puree. It did not taste or look like puree. There was no texture to the drink.
Since we were going to Phantom of the Opera matinee, we did not have the time to wait for added heat to the eggs, which would have meant a re-do.
The acoustics were poor and restaurant was so loud. A few pictures on the wall were hung so crooked.
I typically enjoy the Heathman and what it stands for, however this time around, we were disappointed.
Fabulous smoked seafood plate.
We had a wonderful time and great food.
Food quality was very disappointing. We’ve had some great meals here. This was not one of them.
We were greeted well with a smile and got seated promptly.
Had reservations so it went well.
The staff - all of them were so energetic and ensured the night goes well.
Had a great evening and made up for the lousy evening dinner the night before.
The food and service are excellent. Perfect for pre-ballet/theater/symphony dinner!
Very nice. After the concert went back for a glass of wine and the waiter was great.
My best rating would be for location. It’s right at Arlene Schnitzer Auditorium. I’d rate everything else as just fair. I’ll likely return next time I have a concert or play to go to simply because it’s so convenient.
We had a lovely brunch. Food was grest and reasonably priced.
Considering the menu prices (high), we were hoping for either great service or great food (or both?). However neither of these were the case. Service was underwhelmingly slow, and I can get better tasting, cheaper food at dozens of Portland area restaurants. Not recommended.
We were a party of two. My friend had the fish and chips, which she said were delicious, and I had the grilled steelhead, which was perfectly cooked. Sat in the bar area to have a quieter table, so that worked out well. Will definitely be back soon.
Our waitress was very helpful in guiding our selections. The seafood was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. It was a great place to celebrate a birthday.
Server was slow and non-responsive from the beginning. Multiple complaints never led to an improvement in her service. One in our party complained to manager, who acknowledged how poor the service was and took off the price of our entrees, which was a kind gesture, but we had travelled from the east coast and were interested in having a special evening with our Portland friend, who was celebrating a birthday, not comped courses. When we finally were served our main courses they were cold, obviously had been sitting. One was returned and warmed; we just accepted the others just to get through the evening without too much of an issue. There is nothing positive I can say about this experience, despite the promising articles I had read.
Mushroom rigatoni was amazing and the wine list certainly gives you plenty of options. I think my only personal dislike was the mussels were too big so made them "chewy" in a sense because they were not just a one bite piece.
