“Grossly overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2005

Although it has a great wine list, the food is definitely average, and the service was below par. They have gotten very high marks in such places as Zagats, but it seemed to us that they were living off their past reputation. There are far better choices in Portland.

“very dissapointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2005

We had a terrible experience for Mother's day at Heathman Restaurant last week...The famous restaurant boasts for it family freindly experience did not have enough high chair for the customers with the small children...We did not enjoy our food at all and the line to get the omelette took up 15-20 minutes....My husband did not even once get up from the table to get the food because our toddler started to get fuzzy....Finally they admitted that they forgot to rent more high chairs for the special event...(For mother's day???)We are dissapointed too with the food, is not what we expected...the grilled vegetables been sitting there too long, the aspaSearchragus and eggplant were mushy....The eggs benedict and waffles tasted like the one on IHOP Restaurant... To make the matter worse, the manager ( a woman) only came ONE time to our table to tell us that the food was their compliment because of their mistake...She did not seem sorry , just happy to rush us out from the restaurant...THe servers staff were very friendly and they kept coming to our table checking on us and said sorry all the time...With the best reputation hotel,, how could the hire the manager like that.....???
THis is our first expereince but for sure it will be THE LAST to Heathman Restaurant...SO DISSAPOINTED!!!!!

“Wonderful Heathman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2004

The Heathman Restaurant is a wonderful dining experience! It is our restaurant of choice for all special occaisions. We have met friends many times for dinner over the Christmas holidays, every anniversary dinner (tomorrow will be our tenth) as well as a simple celebration in the lounge area when we signed papers on our first house. The service is always superb and the food fantastic. We have never had a bad meal or experience there. Even when we were late getting in for dinner after our wedding nuptuals they held our table open anyways and never rushed us to finish food or drink long after the restaurant actually closed. The only word to describe our experience has to be "Excellent" every time!
