HopCity Tavern Ratings and Reviews
The food and atmosphere were fantastic! We also received excellent service from Christina, who was our server for the evening. She was very friendly and engaging, and provided great service from start to finish. I highly recommend giving Hop City Tavern a try.
It was ok. The atmosphere struck us as very sparse and bare, and there were long waits between server visits even though it wasn't busy. Also, the pub pretzel could have been better if the cheese served with the pretzel was served warm instead of cold. The burger was a bit dry. The sweet potato fries were good though.
We arrived a little early for our reservations and were seated by a hostess immediately. Anthony was our server and was knowledgeable, polite and efficient. My wife had a salad with fava beans and thought it was excellent and would make a whole meal. I had the hamburger and was satisfied with that and the french fries were perfect. A before dinner cocktail and after dinner cobbler topped our meal off at the right time to meet our taxi to take us to The Lion King performance at Keller. A great night.
Not a fan. Open to entire hotel, very loud. Server not attentive after food brought. Food was okay, nothing special and not worth the full price. The kicker was I saw a chef in the open kitchen cough into her hand and not wash afterwards; would have left on that alone but I had already eaten.
The table was waiting and was able to be seated prior to the reservation and no hassles that a couple in the party was late. The waiter was very attentive. The food was presented well and was delicious. We will definitely keep HopCity in mind for additional dining experiences.
Waiter charming, helpful, with just right amount of presence: available when needed without hovering or interfering. Returned to acknowledge he had made mistake re: wine order and offered to correct it.
The cocktails were innovative. The salad (chopped kale with figs or dates and hazelnuts) and crab pot pie were wonderful. We had neither time (before symphony) nor space for dessert, which also looked tasty.
The room was noisy as a result of other conversations; suspect it was acoustics more than loud patrons.
This was my first time dining at Hop City Tavern, so I didn't get to sample the beers. I had the pretzel burger with bacon and sweet potato fries; it was quit tasty. My guest had the chicken club sandwich which also looked good. I saw a number of other things on the menu that I would like to try next time.
We went here for dining month. My friend had the pot pie and I had the steak. Both were excellent. The service was really good. Our server was really nice and stopped by often to check on us. My only disappointment was they were out of the dessert. We were really looking forward to it. Our server offered us our choice of their desserts. We each tried a different one and they were both good. Our server gave us a coupon to come back for the donut bread pudding dessert. I'll be back.
The only reason the service got a 4 was because the hostess (who seemed like she really didn't want to be there ) only gave us one menu. Our server was great! I had to send back my steak as it was rarer than I like, and he gave us a "peace offering " of the most delicious Brussels sprouts ever. Boyfriend approved Dungeness pot pie. Good was grand.
Not a bad place, especially if you are waiting for a show or staying at the hotel. They have a decent beer list, casual atmosphere, open kitchen with dining bar, tables, and booths. I had the shepard's pie, which was not bad but a bit too tomato flavored for my tastes. My son had simple pasta marinara off the kids menu (surprise that a pub has a kids menu). He ate it all. The best part of the meal was the Dungeness crab pot pie. It had too many peas for my wife's taste (she hates peas), but otherwise it was really good. If I go back it will be for the crab pot pie, which I only got a small taste of.
My husband and I booked a table before attending a show at the Schnitzer Concert Hall. It is across the street from the theater and in the Hilton Hotel lobby.
The food was adequate. Bar food mostly, so there was not too much of a choice. It was lively and attractive, but a bit noisy. I don't think I would have dinner there again.
It was amazing to see staff act like they had no diners. On many occasions I saw them passing tables without making any eye contact or ignoring being waved down. Once you got their attention they seemed pleasant enough, but it was obvious that they didn't want to be doing their jobs.
We needed to dine close to the Schintzer, and Hop City fit the bill as not too expensive, reasonable choices and with enough room to fit a party of 8. We each found something on the menu that suited us. Thought the wine selection was miniscule, we really enjoyed the Portlandia Pinot Noir they recommended. The "big board" appetizer had something for everyone of us and was very much appreciated while we waited for our entire party to assemble.
Several of us enjoyed the Hop City burger, while others enjoyed the fish and chips and Astoria flatbread and the Root Cellar salad with grilled chicken or delicious grilled shrimp.
Overall, a winner!
We were a party of 10 and there were only 3 other tables of patrons in the whole restaurant. Everyone in our party felt that our server was dreadful. There were apparently no glasses in the bar (?????) and it took close to 15 minutes to get our drinks. Some in our party NEVER DID get their drinks. She was inattentive, not helpful with menu questions, and completely inefficient in her serving skills. Even while waving our checks and credit cards in the air, she still didn't come get them until we asked.
However, we all completely loved our food. Compliments to the chef!
We were greeted upon walk-in, our reservation was checked in and we were seated immediately.
The fish and chips portion was a bit small. The fennel hash was more of a skillet of chunks of potatoes and carrots, small amount of bacon.
The beet box was a huge portion and was quite good. The steak was prepared to order and was amazing.
The red and white flights were a great addition and were of a great value.
Our waitress was quite nice, knowledgeable, attentive and overall exceptional.
Hopcity Tavern is a little sterile but fits the bill if you want reasonable for downtown and you have some kids in tow. They were very busy on the day we were there handling a lunch guests from a conference in the hotel so service was on the slow side but nothing impossible to deal with.
Their website said to make a reservation, which I did. However, upon arrival at the scheduled time, I couldn't find anyone to take my reservation. I walked the perimeter of the area three times before I happened upon a waitress who told me the restaurant was full. I told her I had a reservation, and she shortly found me a table. The soup, when it finally arrived, was good but my hamburger and fries were burnt. Next time I'm in Portland I'll find another restaurant.
Fine place if you are staying at hotel. We went for a romantic date night and was disappointed by over all experience. Poor waitress was by herself for about 30 mins. Took us 15 mins for a drink and never even got a chance for a 2nd. Too much like a cafeteria.
The website made the restaurant sound like it had a great variety on the menu of Northwest comfort foods. We had the Tavern burger, Crab pot pie, IPA mac n cheese, and one of the flatbreads. All of them were tasty, but we were very disappointed in the lack of variety on the menu. One page, one column with everything on it, but 4 pages of alcoholic beverages? Really?! Guess we should have known when the name was changed from Bistro to Tavern.....
It was very disappointing
Friendly service, reasonable food but the general atmosphere doesnt quite make it. It is, and feels like, an hotel restaurant. One oddity -the wait staff are dressed in plaid shirts and jeans but the maitre wears a shirt, tie and jacket. A bit more image consistency would be good.
Hop City is more bar than restaurant. The food was okay, but not outstanding. I do however think that it would be a good place for a group to go to have s few drinks and a little food. It was very noisy, not really suitable for a relaxed evening out for a couple.
I went here for a lunch during the middle of the week. Service wasn't great. Our server seemed new, so I won't hold that too much against him. The food was good. I got the farro salad and it was delicious. I also had the sweet potato fries and they were so yummy. It took a while to get the food out, because the person I was with got the fish. I would definitely go back.
