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.

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.

Other than having a slight issue finding the place -- the address on their website is a building name, not a street address -- we had a delightful meal from beginning to end. Service was very good, and our waitress was extremely well-versed in the details about every dish, and was able to answer questions very well to help us... More

Whenever my son-in-law from Chicago comes to town we head straight for our favorite lunch spot, Walters. The atmosphere is wonderfully serene, the staff is always great and the food and drinks are terrific. I have always been delighted by my visit to Walters and I recommend it highly. Great spot.

I have loved this place in it's old location and love it in the new location...a must visit every time we go to Portland. The staff is always knowledgeable and friendly and there is always a new, interesting menu item to try. You won't be disappointed.

Started with some of the best mussels we ever had... Then the Hanger Steak entree cooked perfectly medium rare.. And the Duck breast cooked to perfection .., we have a new favorite place in Portland!!... More
