Another Outstanding Place

Superb food done uniquely but well. All six of us walked away greatly satisfied and too full to do more than review their dessert menu. Too bad too.

Although I got the feeling from the hostess that I was not dressed appropriately ( you know that up and down look), their wine list and lunch menu helped me get over her attitude. Lots of good wines by the glass and the cold Asian noodle special was very good.

Our group went to Walter's for dinner as part of a bachelorette weekend. I had called a bunch of places a few weeks prior, and they were one of the only restaurants who were able to accomodate us. I had been to Walter's many years ago at their old location and knew the food was great. We had a few... More

WOW! Amazing! Yummy! What a find! The fried ravioli was so good, the Forbidden shrimp - had no idea what to expect and boy was I thrilled! The Asian salad - could have had a huge plate! We will return!

Service was surpassed only by the incredible dining experience we had. Mussels appetizer like nothing I've ever experienced included Escarole and beans with a very flavorful broth. I love a salad wedge. Theirs was a "baby" iceberg with grilled chorizo (instead of traditional bacon bits), tomatoes, a delicate dressing with Gorgonzola crumbles and straw onions. The entre was blackened scallops... More

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

Our extended family was getting together in Portland, and after reading many restaurant reviews we decided on Walters. What a terrific choice! The food was absolutely amazing, from the starters to the dessert. My husband's calamari was the best I've ever tasted and the roasted carrot bisque made me want to lick the bowl! My salmon entrée with coconut curry... 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.
