Reviewed April 14, 2012

We love going to Portland's in Phoenix. Across the street from Deck Park-great location. Food is great,service is hit or miss but still worth the trip.

“One of the best restaurants in Phoenix”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

I had a pre-theatre dinner here with family and friends a few months ago, and was very impressed by everything - the service, the cleanliness, the atmosphere, the live music, everything!

The food was of course delicious, and its presentation was superb. It was reasonable priced as well. The restaurant is in a convenient location not too far from downtown Phoenix and I will definitely be going back.

“Love it!”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

On Phoenix (AZ) first Friday we found Portlands about 8:30 PM, located at Central and Portland. The win bar was packed, but we were hungry so opted for dinner. Within 5 minuets we were seated at a great floor to ceiling window table. Dillon was our server. We ordered the Eggplant Nepoleon, with calamari for an appatiser and a house Pino Gris. The Nepoleon is layered eggplant, portobella mushroom, a round of baked cheese and a delicious tomato based sauce and was plenty enough to share. It all went together perfectly. The following Tuesday we had a meeting downtown and decided to bring friends to Portlands with the Eggplant Nepolion dinner. This time we ordered a white pizza to go with it. Again, perfect combination! Tonight I got an internet notice that their specialty burgers are $7 on Wednesdays. Can't wait to try those! We want to try different restaurants downtown every First Fridday, but it's going to be hard to pass up Portlands!

“Had a not so good experience...”
Reviewed September 4, 2010

I went to this restaurant tonight with some family. We walk in and no one who worked there acknowledged us for about 5-10 minutes. Mind you, it was not too busy, few people at the bar and a larger party in the dining room. I went up to the bartender and asked if there was someone to seat us or if we sat ourselves, cause I seriously was thinking maybe we do seat ourselves after waiting for so long. Our waiter, who sat us, didn't seem to care we had to wait while there were empty tables.

The food was not bad, but not worth what they were charging. The wine was overpriced and house wine (for $8 glass) tasted like boxed wine. Pizza was not bad, but not too tasty either. The fries were awesome. Even with the fries, I give this place a 2 1/2.

“Love it here.”
Reviewed April 6, 2010

Great location, on the light rail route. Nice atmosphere, especially during the times of year when it's nice to eat outside. I had the pork chops, which I *never* order, but they were recommended by a friend and they were very good. They feature local art. Good place overall.
