We ate at Walter's our first night in Portland after checking out reviews on TA. We at there at 6p so it was very empty. We were first sat at a table that had one seat in direct line of the setting sun so we asked for a different table and were put in the far corner of the dinning... More

Walter's may well become one of our favorite restaaurants in New England. We arrived and were offered seating in either the lounge or the main dingin room- we opted for the lounge,with its comfortable chairs. We started with a salad of lettuce and chorizo stuffing, which was spicy and real flavorful. Then we ordered "forbidden shrimp" and loin of lamb.... More

With all the great restaurants in Portland, this is one of my favorites. There is a hint of Asian fusion in many of the dishes (mushrooms with soy, chili and rice) but also some other great options like Brussels sprout slaw with edamame, bacon , almond and cranberries. We also had the shrimp with black rice, chinese sausage and edamame....fabulous!!

Wonderful meal, excellent service in what looks like ' just another bar' from the exterior. Waiter was extremely helpful as we navigated the menu and options and was happy to point us in the right direction. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great dining experience in a comfortable and discreet setting.

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... 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
