No trip to Portland is complete without a stop at the Portland City Grill. It sits atop the tallest building downtown, which isn't tall by New York standards! I can't speak to their meals, but happy hour is great fun, and the appetizers are very good. I have been there several times and never been disappointed. It's worth it just... More

If you want to experience Portland at its best....head on over to Portland City Grill. Good menu, great drinks and a calamari appetizer that's to die for plus a panoramic view of PDX's finest from Mount Hood to the river and the bridges. Its ALL ABOUT THE VIEW!

My 5-star rating is for the food. While the venue is likely what draws many people to reserve here (30th floor - some tables with views given by luck/availability - most have essentially no to little view), the venue does not live up to its billing. The space is crowded and large - most tables are not window-side, but are... More

Had happy hour drinks and appetizers here on Sunday night. The views of Portland are spectacular at night and the ambiance is nice. We were immediately impressed by the 20 year old blind pianist playing The Who, Violent Femms, John Legent, Beethoven, etc. He will blow your mind! The service was average. The bartender was understandably busy, and gave us... More

My husband and I celebrated the 24th anniversary of our first date at PCG. When making the reservation, the friendly voice on the phone asked me if we were celebrating an occasion. Upon our arrival, we were touched to find anniversary decorations and a card at the table. Brunch is very interesting. Diners can order from a menu as well... More

What a special treat to go to the 30th floor and have a 180 degree look across all of Portland's twinkling lights! The crowd was hopping and lively and the food great. We truly enjoyed our time though the service was a little slower as we sat down for a cocktail (they were quite busy!). Would love to return. Had... More

I had dinner with friends at night with a table overlooking the river. The view was amazing!

It was on our list of restaurants to visit during a recent break and it didn't disappoint. The views, as everyone agrees, are stunning but the staff don't just rely on that to draw in the customers. The meal and the service was first rate. We asked the server's advice (Jason?) on what to order and his recommendation of halibut... More

I had lunch here on my birthday and the service, food and view were all excellent! The tables are not too close together even though you'd think they would squeeze them in for that amazing view but they are nicely spaced for private conversation at your table.
