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.

We are local (with kids) and went there tonight for a 'date night'. We had a great night. Food was really good. The squash soup, salmon, duck were all great. 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.

We returned to Walter's on one of the first really cool evenings of the Portland fall, and were greeted by the lovely eye level gas jet fireplace to take the chill off. Matt, our server, was knowledgeable and attentive, and the service was excellent throughout. Starting with the slightly spicy buttercup soup and the crispy asian ravioli--both wonderful--we went with... More
