    Overall, it was a disappointing experience. The server made an effort but it wasn't enough to overcome the poorly prepared, overpriced food and weird vibe.

    Had the Steak Frites. It was perfectly cooked with great smashed roasted potatoes. Very nice cocktails and chocolate desert. Our new place to eat when we stay in Portland.

    My favorite winter dish was taken off the menu - the pork chops with baked apple. Nothing currently compares. For breakfast, the cooks don't seem to understand easy over eggs. The brisket hash and eggs is listed on the menu as served with fried eggs over easy. Despite this, my eggs were cooked through. When I pointed this out, I requested a new set of eggs, which turned out exactly as before. Overcooked. The hash was good, though.

    Went for dinner; limited menu but everything was quite good. We had a salmon dish and a pasta dish - both were very good. Long list of beers (of course, this was Portland so what would you expect). If your staying at the Kimberly, and are looking for a decent meal, this would be a good choice.

    Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The service was a little slow for my wife and me. We arrived at 6:30 pm and did not leave until about 9:30 pm due to the length of time we waited for our meals to come. They were not busy and the course was already preplanned due to a Valentine's Day special menu.

    Nice atmosphere. The waitress seemed high, but nice. Came here for thanksgiving dinner and were seated in front of a big TV. Which was thankfully off. The meal was tasty, though seemed a bit pricey for what it was.

    This was without question the worst dining experience I have ever had. I don’t even know where to start - a new, inexperienced bartender took 30 minutes to make two cocktails, and they were awful. We sent them back. The soup (which actually came BEFORE the cocktails, was absolutely abominable. Raw flour and unsalted chicken stock. I don’t even know what kind of soup it was supposed to be. Then came entrees…. It was Thanksgiving, and they had a pris-fixe menu. It was literally inedible. The turkey was dry and tasteless, the ‘stuffing’…. I think that was what it was supposed to be - came in a little lump like an ice cream scoop, and it was COLD. Not even luke-warm. The plating looked like it was done by 2nd-graders. Unadorned mashed potatoes (no gravy) cold, and had a very strange taste. Again, inedible. The meal was by far the worst I’ve ever had, and not only will I never return to High Horse, I will warn everybody to steer clear of it. A total joke, and for 160$ for a party of two, I felt absolutely ripped off,. I’m sick about the whole thing, and very mad.

    Our server Andi was amazing! She was very funny and did a great job as the only server for a full thanksgiving service. Cocktails are over priced even for hotel standards so order beer for the best value. Thanksgiving dinner wasn’t bad (have had worse before) but I felt some of the dishes could’ve been thought out a bit better and the seasonings were a bit off. Will come back to try the regular menu though.

    We were there for happy hour before my bf and I went the Panic At the Disco concert. It was the start of happy hour and barely anyone else was there. $2 oysters on the shell were such a good deal (ordered 12 of them) and so are their cocktails! Food was delicious! Highly recommend the whiskey sour. If you do go during happy hour, depending on the staff they may or may not be able to do a full bar (since some them weren’t fully trained). One of the servers seemed a little grumpy when I ordered my whiskey sour with her (with dark reddish hair) since our server was with another table-I think she was trying to leave her shift or something, but the other two were really nice.

    This place could be epic! But the staff wasn’t super accommodating, we waited a long time before we got menus and they didn’t seem Super interested in making us have an enjoyable experience. The food was sub-par and lacked presentation. The drinks were fine. I wouldn’t come back unless I knew improvements were made.

    Staff couldn’t have been more friendly and attentive. We added a person to our reservation, then went from dinner to a pre-wedding cocktail get together (at HH), seamlessly! Food was excellent and creative. The menu had something for everyone!

    I was excited that another breakfast option came online to open table. As another diner mentioned, it is up the stairs on the second floor from the lobby and no signage inside alerts you of this. The space is clean. They were a bit short on staff, though the two gentlemen waiting the tables and running the food were extremely nice, just not very available. Also, they had no idea about their being listed on open table, and when I mentioned that I had a reservation, they weren’t sure what to do with that information. Food was good. Some fine tuning needed but overall good.

    Met up with a friend for brunch after booking a reservation on OpenTable. Signage was very poor (you have to enter the hotel, climb to the second story, and there's little there). The area was completely empty with neither any staff nor clients. We waited for 10 minutes before heading downstairs to the lobby, where the front desk was able to rustle someone up to get a table ready for us. Service was inattentive to the extreme - I ended up needing to replenish my own water. Food was ok. I wouldn't eat here again.
