One of the best

Portland has so many great restaurants that it's hard to choose where to eat when you only have a few days there. I chose this one because of its proximity to my hotel. I had had a long day and I just wanted a good meal. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, it was one of the best meals I had... read more

Best meal of the week - very unique Asian / Old World combination of flavors. Excellent cocktails too. And the atmosphere was great! Will eat there again next time in Portland!

We said yesterday that we must have reached at least 50 times eating here...maybe considerably more. The lunch, in particular, is always so incredibly delicious, consistent, and portioned well. And the service is always impeccable. We really have never had a bad experience here. Take it from us, you can't go wrong at Walter's. We rarely step away from the... More

Walter's is consistant. Food is eclectic, but wonderful. Lunch is mainly a business person crowd. But dinner is stunning. If you are fortunate to have NIcolle as your server, she is able to guide you to a fantasitc dinner. She was able to pare the duck with a very exquiste Rombauer Merlot (2010) - yes a Merlot that is full... More

We were on the way to lunch and we walked by Walter's and it smelled so good that we decided to eat there instead. We were immediately seated in the lounge in couch-like low chairs. We had the chicken pita tzatziki and the fried green tomato BLT which were both delicious. They came with homemade potato chips which neither of... More

I hadn't been to Walters since it had moved from Exchange Street but was was pleased to find that although the atmosphere is much different, the food was as good as ever. The price range of most entrees was between $25-$35 and the portions were just right. We had 2 different salads and 2 different entrees and all were excellent.... More

Best place in Portland for a business lunch. Eclectic menu that will meet everyone's taste. Service is excellent! Every item on menu is great. Lunch specials always sell out quick. A favorite for over 10 yrs. No disappoints ever.

While this restaurant is on the first floor of an office building, don't let that deter you from what's inside. The interior has been treated to make you feel cozy and warm. The service staff (Matt) was great and attentive to our table throughout our visit. Lobster mac & cheese, garlic truffle fries, pan seared ahi tuna and petite filets... More

We only go here with out of state friends who foot the bill. It's NEVER worth it. The only thing I really do like is the dim lighting --- I look younger. There is NOTHING for a vegetarian. I know that going in, and yet each time I try something it's always a disappointment. Example -- hand cut fries. Sounds... More

Walter's is famous around here and we were looking forward to our first visit. We had reservations and still were seated in a dark corner while the nice tables remained empty even when we exited after completing our meal. If the goal of Restaurant Week is to hook first-time diners so they come back, well that didn't happen. Three course... More
