MWL Is a very special spot. With it's member's only policy - it never fills to near explosion and it feels special the moment they greet you by your name. The service is impeccable, the setting is gorgeous and if you can get in - you'll be a fan.
I always love this place! Staff is wonderfully attentive, and really knows their stuff. Mixing the drinks at the table side is the BEST!
Jackson’s recommendation was excellent
Great as always!
MWL is a treasure. Their staff is well trained and incredibly knowledgeable. Amazing choices for all distilled drinks, especially single malt scotch.
Amazing as always! Good job folks.
Food had too much salt for my palate.
Music a bit too loud for a fine drinking/dining establishment.
For the beauty of MWL, which seems it’s trying to emulate a British eating club, I was appalled at the young men (ersatz Hipsters) in t-shirts, wearing Zac Brown type knit hats, ball caps while at the dinner table with nicely dressed young ladies. It is proper etiquette for men to remove headgear at the dinner table except for certain cultures (Sikhs).
The dress code should be tightened up a bit in my opinion. Go to Reelem in Chicken on Division Street if you want to dress like your slumming, and they have outstanding chicken by the way.
Service was absolutely spot on, Justin, Megan and Hailey most excellent!!!!!
Always fun, tried some new Lowland Scotches, very helpful staff!
You can always expect the most exceptional service from the talented and well trained staff at MWL.
I hosted a business celebration dinner at MWL, and the food was the best we have ever had. Great work to the chefs and the kitchen crew! 5-star foodie review, in addition to the always 5-star cocktails and of course, whiskey collection.
MWL is outstanding in every way. The food is great. The selection of whiskey is remarkable. But, the staff is a major draw. Everyone who works there is knowledgable about whiskey. I always look forward to an occasion when I can go there. Sometimes I just go for an outstanding cocktail.
Enjoyed the visit - had a much better experience compared to the previous visit. Felt very welcome. Will be back in couple of weeks
Amazing atmosphere and craft cocktails! The service is top notch and selection of spirits is unrivaled!
Love, love, love this place. The ambiance is exactly what you think of when you imagine a vintage style club library. All old books and leather chairs with dark wood and a whiskey selection that is stunning. The service is fantastic and friendly even to those of us who don't know our whiskey that well (and to my wine drinking friend). The food is top notch and creative with local ingredients too. If you aren't a member with a reservation it can be quite a wait to get in but so worth it.
Always a memorable experience!
As usual, MWL exceeds all expectations. Fantastic drinks, knowledgeable staff, had a fantastic time. Ordered the Prime Rib, which is huge, for 4 people and had leftovers. Perfectly done, tender. As always, the mixed drinks are excellent, the Old Fashioned a particular favorite. Tried several whiskey choices as well, staff very accurate in the descriptions. Staff was happy to have us, helped us when asked, kept glasses full, and made us welcome. We all had a great time!
As always the staff was amazing and the cocktails were perfect. See you guys soon.
Great ambiance and whiskey selection! This place is amazing. We only had a few small plate apps but the food was legit. Highly recommend!
Awesome place for a cocktail and light meal. Great service and ambiance.
Great service, as always. Really appreciated bartender Allie's recommendations. The woman who brought out our food order was also knowledgeable and funny.
I took a business partner to the MWL for after work drinks and some nosh, and overwhelmingly impressed her with my choice. The staff is so incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. The cocktails are top notch, and they have a great kitchen.
Service has become erratic at this once stellar bar. Wait staff attention and knowledge is not what it was a year ago.
Amazing atmosphere and very knowledgeable staff! Keep up the good work!
Great place and time as avery time I have been. Superb, knowledgable staff. Great snacks and drinks. Again my favorite place in Portland.
Always a pleasure to dine here. Great drinks and amazing bar scene. Tons of whiskey choices!
Love this place
I am a member and brought out-of-town friends/family for drinks before dinner at another restaurant. Seating was prompt but our bartender was trying to provide service for too many people. As a result we felt neglected. Drinks were slow to arrive and we were forced to rush as we tried to make our dinner reservations.
Overall, a disappointing introduction of the Library for our friends.
Usually I have to take an airplane to enjoy craft cocktails in a epic setting such as the MWL. Drinks are top notice. The Staff is exceptional. Food is expensive and small portions. The one exception to that is their popcorn, which is a must. Bottom line is, go there for pre or post dinner drinks and perhaps an appetizer, but eat dinner elsewhere.
MWL has the most amazing selection of whiskies, great bartenders that are super knowledgable about the whiskey and mixology of cocktails. The service is amazing, and food is fantastic. I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking to go to a super classy establishment for a cocktail or two.
Great service, knowledgeable bartender, good food. We are members and enjoy this venue.
Great food, drink and atmosphere! The service is amazing and the presentation and preparation of the drinks is both educational and beautiful. A definite must go.
Love being a member! Exceptional experience every time. Everyone enjoys the experience of dining and sipping fine spirits at the Multnomah Whiskey Library!
I've been here a half-dozen times or so over the last few months, and it's been a great experience each time. The whiskey is certainly pricey, but for the ambiance and service (not to mention the selection) it's well worth it. The only drawback is the seating arrangements are unconventional. You will sit next to other parties, and it's hard to have a private conversation here. I frequently go with a friend and they'll sit us side by side on a sofa, which means you're sitting with your head turned to the side all night. Other than whiskey, they have a respectable wine list, huge liquor collection (including a deep offering of tequila and rum), cocktails (including non-whiskey-based options) and, you know, water (if you're into that).
