We went to Walter's on the advice of someone we met on the flight to Portland. Located in an old bank or trade building, the space may feel imposing to some, but we found the decor very welcoming and comfortable. The menu was just quirky enough without being totally off our gastronomic map. The service was thoughtful and superb, the... More

We met friends who live near Portland. They picked the place for four seniors, two thirty-somethings. Walter's gave us excellent choices, quality of items and service. Also, we were seated in a very comfortable, rather private little nook. One caution...our friends thought they were getting reduced parking rates, but the lot was unattended and they had to pay full price.

We have eaten here at least once a year since 2012 and we just like it more every time we dine. I started with the crab cakes, followed with the lobster and pasta and they were flat-out delicious. My wife had the duck and our friend had the brick chicken, all were just grand. The service was prompt and professional... More

The best place in a downtown location that is not a burger place. Highly recommend. Easy to find; good service; moderately priced.

Just returned home from dinner at Walter's. All four of us tremendously enjoyed it. Terrific variety of fusion dishes, Everything was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, and with fine service too. The big test - will we return? Of course we will, and we look forward very much to that too!

My wife and I had dinner at Walters last night. This recommendation came from a passenger next to us on the plane coming to Portland who happened to be a chef herself. Walters lived up to our high expectations with unique dishes, all well prepared with many flavor profiles. The restaurant is very modern, yet comfortable at the same time... More

This was the first of many restaurants we visited in Portland, and it was among the best. The meal was fantastic, from appetizers to dessert. The appetizers can vary greatly in size, so be sure to ask your server about portions. It was not a cheap meal, but the Asian influenced meals, calamari, tuna tartar, wasabi Caesar, even the cheeseburger... More
