Great food worth another visit

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.

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

Portland has its share amazing restaurants run by hip young chefs, some a little uncomfortable in their chicness, but this is a grown-up professional environment for business people and others who value not only an outstanding menu but a quiet and comfortable environment in which to sit and talk.

We stumbled across this amazing restaurant whilst shopping and walking around the city. We are glad we did, and can't wait to go back there for dinner . Very pleasing restaurant decor, great ambience and service. The menu is good and the food delicious. Well presented,

Was very disappointed in my main... The lamb loin was cold and had to go back! The eggplant fries were great! The mussels were delicious. Glad I dined here once.... Would not return .

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
