Came here for Valentines dinner with friends and we had a wonderful experience. We had salad and calamari for appetizer and braised short ribs, shrimp, duck and salmon for main dish and everything was excellent! Would come back for to their short ribs again it was the best tasting dish on their menu

This is a five star restaurant for lunch. Cobb salad, tiramisu with a double expresso - can not go wrong. Everything is great. Excellent for a business lunch as is very busy after 11:45 am for lunch till 1:15 pm. It is a keeper.

I made a reservation for a party of 8 for an after business meeting dinner at the recommendation of my client. The ambiance, service and food was excellent. This place by far surpassed my expectations. The calamari is a must have for an appetizer. The brussel sprout as well as the beet salad was perfectly prepared. For mains we had... More

This is a great place! The food is superb! I did think that the salmon entree would be a trifle bit small for most patrons but for it was fine for me. The flavor was superb! Great ambiance! Parking tickets can be validated during the day and there is valet parking after 5:00 pm. Excellent service!

I've been coming to Walter's for over 10+ years and every trip to Portland, I live in NC, would not be complete unless I've eaten here. If it's eating in the bar or bringing in customers, the food and wine selction is alway top notch, and the wait service is exceptional. Most of the time I allow them to select... More

Spectacular dining for a special occasion or a romantic date. The wine list was wonderful and the waiter was helpful in choosing a wine that paired well with both out meals. The food was well prepared and the flavors were very unique and beautifully melded together. The atmosphere was very romantic, although we were there early because of other plans,... More

Very delicious good. On par price wise with other restaurants in Portland of this quality. Classy place but you don't need a tie. Great drink and dessert menu as well. Can't go wrong anything on the menu.

My biggest pet peeve to any restaurant is to see it dirty in the dining room. I can't tell you how many times I see dust, cobwebs, food splattered, etc. and neither the owner or chef take a morning - even only twice a year - to clean the place. Well, my wife and I were seated at at a... More

I made a reservation weeks in advance to treat my friends for allowing me to stay with them over the New Years holiday. The menu seemed eclectic and exciting on the website.Once seated, the atmosphere was bland and tables much too close together. You could not help but be bombarded by conversations around you. Table settings/decorations/chairs..all bland which did not... More
