Beautiful evening for eating outside with a view overlooking the marina and city lights. As you walk by, all the tables outside say, "Reserved" but know they are reserved for people just walking by who want to stop for a bite to eat (like you). I did not know that and assumed they were full up for dinner until I asked the hostess. So, now that you know that, you should know that it is also very busy on the promenade so try to get a table on the river side instead of the walk side so you won't be sniffed by dogs or hit by bicycles (who should be walking their bikes anyway but hey, this is Portland and bicyclists aren't required to follow any laws, right?). We had a mojito, and I'm not really sure of the reason other than we wanted to try something new. It wasn't for me but on a hotter day, maybe. Wife ordered the filet mignon and contrary to their Bridgeport location, was a healthy sized steak but it came with a whole bowl of potatoes and about 15 green beans. Expensive but done right and tasted great. I had the parmesan crusted sole after being told they ran out of beef medallions so I wasn't expecting a whole lot. However, the fish was very good, although a little bit greasy but still excellent considering they dealt two filets, nice tasting pasta and green beans. Service was excellent and although we sat outside, we did notice the tiered tables inside so almost every table has an excellent view of the river and downtown city lights. Happy hour in the bar and at a small area near the west end of the promenade. Overall expensive but worth it when you get the great service and view instead of nice view and mediocre service. Thank you!
