    Great location on the river. Good service but very few patrons. Haven't been there in a year and the food was quite poor. Bass tasted bad until I removed all the dark fat then it was at least edible but only a small portion remained. Wife had the Kobe burger which she used to like. It tasted bad and was very over cooked. The wait staff recognized that she didn't eat the burger and took it off the bill. Music was too loud for conversation.

    The food was great, location lovely, ambiance just right. While the wait staff did a good job serving, she wasn’t very friendly and seemed a bit put out in serving just 3 of us— and we weren’t even demanding or difficult. The wait staff can affect the mood and I prefer one that smiles and is pleasant rather than a bit off putting.

    Even with reservations my party of four waited over half a hour to be seated. All the Food was bland and underwhelming to say the least. Definitely did not think it was better then anywhere else I’ve been. Kids menu salmon was twice the size of the adult 45 dollar entree, which I found strange. Calamari was decent. Swordfish was dry and under seasoned. Sides are an additional 14-25 dollars.

    Food was good. Hostess was incredible but service was bad. Server was very friendly but completely abandoned us for an hour. We had to ask for our check multiple times and it was the hostess who ended up helping us and was incredible. The food was good, but for the price I would rather eat at Jake’s Grill.

    New Year’s eve 2022. Worst in my entire life! 10pm reservation, we were early. They did not seat us until 10:20. Then they rushed us to have us out ASAP and BEFORE midnight. Food was terrible except the lobster. Dried out roasted potatoes and raw asparagus, both inedible. Our server was sweet.

    We were here after a long day at OHSU with a family member. We were looking forward to a quality meal and good service given the price point and reputation. I would say it was just average. They were out of two of the three dishes we ordered (ahi and 8 oz filet), forgot to bring a side we ordered and then took forever to bring us our wine and a beer with dinner. It didn’t seem all that busy (it was 6:00 on a Thursday), but maybe there was more going on elsewhere in the restaurant that we couldn’t see or they were short staffed. Our waiter was semi-friendly, but not around much. Food was solid, but not spectacular. Given we were last minute in looking for a dinner spot, it was as fine, but I don’t know that we’d choose it next time given options. Location and ambiance are great.

    Didn’t want to give a negative review on Christmas eve but due to being escorted to our table then sitting for a solid 20-minutes with no acknowledgement from the server and no water/beverage service unfortunately the poor review is destined to be! once we did receive our drinks, sadly we had to wait another 20 to order apps and dinner. both food and drinks were incredible, though! it took initiative from my side to ensure we weren’t forgotten about, which i found strange because the restaurant wasn’t full at all. maybe just a tough day for the server, or she obviously didn’t have the required experience necessary or common sense as she should. next time, we’ll definitely be returning to the bar and not the dining room.

    Could not be MORE disappointed. My entire family at Harbor Side Restaurant for Christmas Ship Night was the worst service I have had ever. I requested at window table to view ships with my reservation. We got placed in the back corner and staff ignored us the entire time. 25 minutes in, I had asked a bus boy for water. 35 minutes in I had to ask the manager if we were going to see our waiter. Our food arrived not warm/over cooked or sat waiting too long and we never saw our waiter again. I went up the front desk and told the hostess we wanted out check so we could leave.

    This was the second time we had a bad experience at this restaurant. Last night, my daughter and I had reservations. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were notified that they were running behind. We were told that we could seat ourselves in the bar. We found an empty booth in the bar that my 10-year-old daughter was allowed to sit at. And sat there for 25 minutes before finally flagging down a staff member to find out who our waiter or waitress was. Not one single staff member acknowledged us or even pretended to care that we were sitting there waiting. The waitress that we flag down stated that she was going to find out who our waiter or waitress was, and it ended up being her. After 45 minutes, we finally got a drink and was able to order. Nothing was done to see if there was anything they could do to make our visit better. At the end of the night, the waitress said it was her first day, and I feel for her, although the way we were treated was unacceptable. Especially considering that nobody else had that same issue as I watched people being seated and attended to. Even people who were seated after us were attended to and had their drinks and meal before we did.

    Our reservation was at 4:45 pm. We were told to go to the bar since our table wasn't ready. The bar was packed with standing room only which caused us to be in everyone's way. At 5:30, I checked on the status of our table and was told there was one group ahead of us. Evidently, people were cashing out and not leaving in hopes of seeing the boat parade. 1 hour and 10 minutes past our reservation time we were finally seated. Our server was great but we also felt rushed. Not the relaxed family holiday outing we planned a month in advance. Our entire family of 5 was incredibly understanding and never took our frustration out on the staff. From the bartender, hostess and servers, everyone was stressed and doing their best. Management - not so much. There were no offers to comp our drinks or dessert and not even an acknowledgement or apology from the floor manager, who stared at us multiple times, but never came to speak with us. We were there longer waiting for our table (despite having a reservation) than we were actually seated for our meal. The staff better be paid well and management needs to do better to at least acknowledge those of us who waited patiently and paid a lot for a rushed, stressful meal. We likely won't be back for the holidays.

    The restaurant is in a nice location, away from the madness of downtown and overlooking the river. Our server was very pleasant and the food quite good. We had the lunch burger and fries and the lunch salmon pesto pasta. I would not hesitate to order either again.

    I had not been to this restaurant for a while, but had good memories of it. I chose it for a birthday dinner because it is within walking distance to the Keller Auditorium. It was busy on a Saturday evening at about 5:45 pm before a show at the Keller at 7:30 pm. The nice young man at the reception counter said that reservations may back up because diners were staying longer at the tables than usual. But he went to work and in about ten minutes gave us two options for a party of five. We chose the best option and it worked out well. The young man who waited on us also performed well. I told him that we had to depart at about 7 pm and he made it happen. Skip the appetizers, and order the bread, entrees, and wine. We all ordered seafood entrees, and they were all very good, simple well cooked fish, potato, and vegetables, on plates that helped conserve the warmth of the food. The sound volume of the diners could be described as energetic, but not excessively so. Street parking was not available, but there is a parking garage a short distance away. We walked into the back of the restaurant which appears to be a bar, but an employee was quick to walk us to the restaurant counter near the river. All things considered it worked out very well, thanks to the efforts of the restaurant's employees. I suggest that you allow extra time to dine if you have a deadline to attend a show on a weekend night.

    Food was okay, not great. A few in our party thought food was overly salty. Portions were average in size. Seemed a bit short-staffed as our server did his best to keep up with several tables. Disappointed that I was not able to use gift cards purchased specifically for this dinner. Supposedly the internet connection was “down”. Overall probably 2.5 to 3 stars.

    One of the best meals we’ve ever had here. Our waitress Kaylee was charming and attentive and our dinner was excellent. The reason for the 4 star service rating was that it took quite awhile to get our meal - nearly forty minutes and we were really ready to eat. Everything else was wonderful and we had a great time.

    We reserved a table for 7 pm with the hope of seeing the Christmas ships. Everyone else had the same idea so our table was not ready. (This was not the restaurant's fault, and they offered us other options for seating and apologized multiple times.) We decided to sit next door in the bar side and were still able to see the ships, so we were happy. Our server, Ryan, was very attentive and brought our delicious drinks right away. We ordered a variety of raw oysters, steaks, stuffed salmon, cioppino linguini, and a wedge and chicken Cesar salad. The steaks were the only thing that wasn't fantastic for the price. (I will say my husband is an avid griller, so he is picky.) Overall, we had a nice time and a great dinner. We would definitely return. If you go, get the seafood, any of it.

    Overall, an ok experience...but with M&S, I would expect better than an ok experience. Food and drinks were good, no problem there. My disappointment was with the service...or the lack thereof. As a person that has been in F&B for over 35 years, I "get it" that this is the absolute toughest time in history when it comes to finding good people to provide that great food and unforgettable experience. I deal with it every day in my operations. But to feel the sheer neglect from Connor, our server, was too much. He was obviously interested in his 6 tops that provided the bigger money than our little deuce. Thing was, he had someone shadowing him...assuming he was training this person. Why wouldn't he have her run some drinks, do a table touch, grab our check from us. You had runners delivering the food, which should leave Connor available to be present and on the floor for his tables. Definitely not the case. (I had to literally stand up and wave the the check holder with my cc in it to get either of their attention to take my money!) And I am sorry, but where exactly was the management presence? In a higher end restaurant such as M&S, I would fully expect management to work the dining room and check on tables. Appetizer came in a timely fashion, soup had about a 30 minute gap from appetizer, and entrees another 20 minute gap. If a manager is on the floor, they'd know these things, or at least be visible for a guest to bring to their attention. Just under three hours for a dining experience for 2 is quite ridiculous.

    There is a definite difference between the original M&S concept and Landry's concept. The ambiance is the same as always, but the food and menu are pretty static as opposed to the daily fresh menus of the past. While there are some experienced servers, the less experienced really stick out. Prices are reasonable and portions are adequate for most. They were out of two "signature" items that we ordered.

    It was our Anniversary dinner and it did not live up to expectations. We had to wait long to get to a table. The table we were seated was nice. The ordering experience was average at best. Our order did not come out together, we had to ask for the asparagus again, seems like the server forgot to put the order in in the first instance. End result, the asparagus arrived after we were done with the Steak. The Spaghetti was undercooked..Overall I would not go back.

    Food was decent as long as you didn't order the Thanksgiving meal; it was extremely dry. The service was below fair. We waited about 10-15 min for a glass of water, 15-20 min for our drink order, 10 min for our food order with starter eliminated, and 15 min for ticket. I would probably order takeout to customize your night.

    Busy Thanksgiving Day so servers were less than enthusiastic/happy towards the end of the night. Dinner order was practically thrown onto my table but other servers were a bit more professional. Nice location and probably better to go either for Happy Hour or special occasion (early in the night by the looks of it).

    Thanksgiving Day: a huge challenge for a restaurant this size. Staff had to race around at 50 mph to get everyone done, sometimes bumping into each other. Nonetheless, after a 20-minute delay in seating beyond our reserved time, everything worked. Orders were taken, food was correctly prepared and served, people were as friendly as could be in light of encounters being measured in milliseconds. There was still pumpkin pie at 8:30 pm. Quite miraculous, given the challenge. Nothing outstanding about the food, which was fine and as expected from this restaurant; upscale prep touches didn't enhance what should have been superb quality fresh fish that could wow on its own. Seats comfortable, ground-level booths well sized and spaced for "social distancing". But, after all, it was Thanksgiving day....I prefer usual menus with their better selection of interesting fresh fish.

    Service was slow but tolerable as restaurant was very busy. It was difficult to make reservations as no one at the restaurant ever answers the phone. I am partially disabled and wanted to tell them that I can't easily do their stairs and at one point had to advise of a change in our reservation. Why don't they have decent customer service for phone calls? Think that's a deal breaker for return dining. Our server, Karen, was terrific. We also waited 45 minutes for our table even though we had reservations.

    The Thanksgiving disappointing - turkey was extremely dry. If you are going to serve roast turkey, time the cooking process so it is fresher for dinner guests. I would not recommend this menu item again.
