“GONE DOWN HIL”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

The Top of the East could be one of the best Scenic View places in Portland, but one you get to the TOP, the Dark, deary, ragged decor, puts a damper on the atmosphere, they should REALLY put some money into renovating this restaurant, it "could" be a great place, but instead it is dreary, musty, old furniture, dirty windows... How can a place have such a beautiful view of the city of Portland - with DIRTY windows???? tsk tsk

Great views worth seeing once. Check in on four square for a free desert with a friend.
