We celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary in Portland Maine. This restaurant was recommended to us by a fellow passenger on our flight from Chicago. And nothing about this restaurant disappointed us. Our waiter was so very nice and polite. (I'm sorry I don't remember his name). He deserves a shoutout. We told him it was out first time eating there,... More

Referred by Hyatt Hotel and a short walk up the street. Not in the busy tourist area and easier to get a reservation. The meals were great, I had the special of the day which was grilled sword fish. The salad we split was fabulous and my partners duck was delicious. Better atmosphere than most restaurants in Portland.

Found Walter's by accident a year ago and it has become our go to restaurant in Portland. The chef is first-rate, inventive with solid technique. Especially enjoyed the steak tartare appetizer, one of the best versions I've. Interesting lamb special. Good wine list, nice service. We did find the seats in the tables in the bar area to be pretty... More

Ate here on our first night in Portland. We sat in the lounge area of the bar which was actually very nice. We ordered off of the bar menu: loved the Chorizo Beef Sliders. The Cracklin Calamari was good, but they poured the aioli on top-would've preferred it on the side. Shrimp tacos were good as were the Trainwreck fries.

Found Walter's on TripAdvisor and arranged a luncheon for five of us in the middle of a torrential rain storm. What a great find. The food was unusual in a very good sense. Interesting mix of ingredients and wonderful tastes. The serving folks were very efficient and warm and pleasant. We spent 3 hours over lunch and never felt like... More

We went to Walter's for my birthday last year and were tempted to try it again this year, but thought we should try someplace new. But every option we looked into, including many with higher rankings in Trip Adviser, had a few negative reviews, which worried us. So we decided to stick with Walter's and we're so glad we did....

Food was so good, we had trouble deciding and when it came it was outstanding. Try the Asian chicken and raviolis, drinks were so fresh and short ribs were divine.

Went there once for Maine Restaurant Week. They gave us 3 courses, all of which were amazing. Very good, high quality food, and the price matches.

very pricy but will come back for their braised short ribs! it was excellent. The place is a bit dark and noisy but the service was good. My husband had the duck and it was good too but he was jealous when I let him tried the ribs. Will most likely come back for special occasions only because it is... More
