Great place to dine with friends as you can relax, talk and hear one another. The atmosphere is pleasant, service impeccable, the food is very good. Portions of entrees are a little on the smallish side for the price. I had the Forbidden shrimp. I would eat there again but have an appetizer beforehand.

Another amazing Portland restaurant! Had a wonderful lunch there sitting at the bar chatting with the bartender. Crab cakes with corn pudding and green peppercorn remoulade, Japanese Caesar salad with miso wasabi dressing, smashed edamame and cashews. And the best fried oyster appetizer I have had in years! If any of this sounds good, check out their menu then go... More

We were looking for a late dinner spot after walking to a movie from the Hyatt. My husband's search took us to Walter's. We were happily surprised to find it a small, sophisticated place. He had the Japanese Ceasar and the Salmon and was really pleased with both. I had the Beet Salad and Cod. I have beet salads just... More

My family frequents Walter's for special days, e.i., birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We've been here numerous times, usually it's great but every now and then it can be underwhelming. They don't have the espresso martini on the cocktail menu anymore (which is lame because it was delicious), but if my sister and I bat our eyelashes the bartender is usually up... More

Very good food and city-style atmosphere..the service was luke-warm but eventually warmed up after we ordered more than just drinks.

Have to admit it - Walter's is a long time favorite restaurant. When I'm in Portland, I always manage to fit a visit to Walter's into my schedule. The food and the service is consistently excellent. I especially like dining at the bar, where there is an opportunity to chat with the bartenders and other patrons. And, a huge plus... More

My boyfriend and I made a reservation here after we couldn't get into Street and Co because it was full. We were so happy we came here instead! The food was all around excellent from the bread to the entrees. We ordered a crab cake and it just melted in your mouth and the pineapple that went with it was... More

This is a consistently great restaurant. Excellent food and very nice aesthetics. The interior design gets the highest marks. The food is handsomely presented as well.

We are local (with kids) and went there tonight for a 'date night'. We had a great night. Food was really good. The squash soup, salmon, duck were all great. The only slight gripe was the portion size for the tuna tartare app. I recommend this restaurant without hesitation. We've been coming back for years and have not had a... More

This was just across from the hotel where we stayed, and we were able to get a table thanks to our concierge. Our server was a bit distant, and made a mistake on our bill by adding the dessert from another table. The food was tasty and the bill was corrected quickly. I would eat here again.
