My wife and I, and another couple ate here on July 19th. We decided to expand our dining experience from the regular restaurants we normally visit. Walter's met our every expectation in service and food quality. Between the 4 of us, we had different beef and seafood dishes. All were superb. The service was very attentive and professional. We ate... More

We went to Portland to visit our daughter and were unable to obtain a reservation on a Friday night before 9:30 anywhere due to our last minute plans. We know many of the restaurants hold tables for walk-ins and tried Fore Street first as my daughter and her girlfriend had not been there yet. They would not have a table... More

I can't say enough good about this restaurant. Went there recently for lunch and as always it exceeded my expectations. The wait staff is awesome, the food is superior and the atmosphere is the best in Portland.

Walters is a dining experience. Not much traditional here. The menu changes regularly and everything is a different take on some traditional dishes. We were there for a business dinner and everyone enjoyed their dishes. The fried calamari is very interesting with lots of spice - hard to describe. I had the duck and it was delicious!! Wine list is... More

In the 40 years I have been visiting Portland, I have never experienced such an amazing restaurant! Staff was all great, and the twist on all the dishes we ordered were so delicious. Bravo to the chef. We will defo be back here every time we return to Portland.

Walter's across from the Nickolodeon theater is an excellent restaurant that serves a high quality of beef dishes. Service is excellent and efficient. Parking is non-existent; however, there are parking garages nearby. Walter's is a favorite dining venue for tourists and Portlanders alike. Highly recommend Walter's should you be in Portland's Old Port.

We had a wonderful dining experience on a busy Saturday evening. Liza, our server, was extremely attentive to our group and was very pleasant even when my wife wanted to call her by another name. Everyone in our group enjoyed their selections. Each of our entrees were delicious while somewhat unique. Our dessert picks-mousse and s'more tarts were a hit.... More

We went for dinner last Friday with my husband. We made a reservation a couple of hours before dinner and they had an opening. When we arrived, our table was ready, the hostess was very friendly and our waitress was also very nice. They brought us some very good bread and EVOO almost right away and we got our drinks...

Interesting menu using many locally sourced items. Meals were well prepared and nicely presented. The service was very good and the staff was accommodating to special requests. A bit pricey but pretty much what you would expect for the quality.
