“Portland City Grill”
Reviewed June 28, 2009

great food- but they served us so quickly that we were out in an hour! If you are a member of the younger crowd or want to belong to that crowd- dine in the lounge- looks like a happening place. If you plan to spend the evening, tell them you are not in a hurry. Spectacular views from the 30th floor of this building.

After my big hope for the week-end flamed out (fenouil) tonight we picked PCG on the spur of the moment. Wow, everything was spot on. We arrived early and even though they were packed (in a recession no less) they seated us promptly. The view was fabulous as everyone says. The service was without a single mistake, even after my wife spilled a glass of wine and they had to reset the table. We both had steaks which were prefect and perfectly cooked, I had the squid appetizer which was with an Asian theme and perfectly cooked. Even the asparagus side was perfect, I really loved that they had a "end of the bin" wine list with stuff that was exiting the main list up to 50%, and they had about 25 wines on this sale list, perfect for a recession economy.

A heads up, they start brunch Fathers Day 2009, and I will be checking that out.

“Great food, Great view...”
Reviewed May 23, 2009

The tea smoked duck appetizer was pretty good. And, the dungeness crab entrees were excellent. Sometimes at restaurants with a view the food suffers. This was definitely NOT the case here.
