I had not been to Walters in about a year and I realize I shouldn't have waited so long. We had an excellent dinner.; from the beet salad, the duck breast to the amazing ending the banana trifle. It was not really noisy, which I find a problem in many restaurants. The four of us were able to carry on... More

The food here, its preparation, presentation, and flavor, was out of this world. We had a terrific waiter who helped make this a memorable evening. We'll be back!

Family friendly! The service was great with my 8 and 11 year old. The picky kids even loved their food. Everyone's food was so good that we tried everyone's. Expensive, and really worth it if you want great food. Beautiful atmosphere. 5 stars easy.

Walters is located just above Fore Streer and provides an intimate setting for a meal. The menu is very diverse and is excellent. The service is fantastic and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. A wonderful place for a meal or just drinks.

We are return visitors to this downtown Portland restaurant because of the consistently inventive and delicious cuisine. The menu changes seasonally but with some reliable favorites year round. Last night's dinner, however, was exceptional in that three of us each with 2 courses had our best meals ever ( and our expectations of the place are very high already)! Our... More

I went solo midweek. Started with a perfect Hendrick's martini at the bar. The menu is so delectable, I completely over ordered (my bad), and didn't finish a single one, not for lack of trying. The calamari with candied jalepeno, oh my, off the charts. Then the apple salad with stilton and walnuts, wonderful. The pièce de résistance: the waygu... More
