I stopped in the bar with a couple of friends for a drink on Sunday afternoon 7/19/2015. We sat at a table in the bar. There were two other tables that had was paying their bill, the other had drinks. We sat for at least 10 minutes without seeing a server in the bar area, and the bartender was visiting with a coworker. My friend had to go to the bar to order drinks. She was given the drinks, then had to ask for napkins. After delivering the drinks to our table she went back to the bar to pay our bill. A male server who was also visiting with coworkers appeared and asked if he could help her. When she told him she was waiting to pay, he told her he would bring the bill to our table, which he did with a little attitude. The bar area is beautiful and the drinks were okay, but the service was lousy. Downtown Portland has too many other places to enjoy a drink. I will not be back.

It feels like this place is struggling, I've eaten there about half a dozen times over a couple years and their calamari appetizer USED to be the best calamari ever; thick tender cuts, no batter, melt in your mouth good. When I went back around 5 months ago the calamari was terrible, nothing like I had remembered with small pieces heavily battered, the waiter attributed the changes to the new chef. My review of a steakhouse is revolving around their calamari which should give you an idea of their steaks, which are forgettable. The bar is overpriced and feels like pricing reflects the spending of business travelers using corporate credit cards.The positive I have to say is that the staff have been attentive and nice when I visit.

Slooooooooooooooow service. Over-salted food. Bad lunch experience, so I wouldn't eat here for dinner.

Service was great! Patti staged the meal perfectly. Downside was the food. Calamari was wonderful, but the $45 rib-eye was so tough it was hard to cut and near impossible to chew. It was cooked medium-rare, which was as requested, but a horrible piece of meat. If I can get a good rib-eye at costco, why cant they? The other meal was the prime rib. It was 20% fat, so much less meat that expected, and also very tough. Rind was tender and good flavor, but the middle of the cut was very tough. Took forever to chew. With all the choices in PDX I doubt I will return.

We had our anniversary dinner here Tuesday at 7:00 pm. The restaurant was fairly empty but the service was excellent from the busboy to the waiter. Everyone was friendly, attentive and quick to replace our ceviche with bruschetta as opposed to the tortilla chips it came with. Excellent starter in my opinion. My boyfriend got a New York and ordered it rare. It was cooked PERFECTLY. Melt in your mouth perfection. I got the grilled salmon which was also phenomenal. The mashed potatoes were so light and fluffy and made an exceptional side. I had a great time and the staff all worked very hard to ensure the restaurant was clean, up to par and that we left satisfied. I wish I saved room for dessert!

It was a quiet Sunday evening and ate here within the Embassy Suites where we were staying. Waiter introduced us to menu of the things he liked (good) and the things he did NOT like (yeah, not cool). We each ordered petite filet mignon, medium-well. Thirty minutes later our steaks finally arrive. Spouse's is medium, but acceptable. Mine is medium rare. After another 5 minutes we finally flag down another waiter and they say they will fix it (no apologies). Another ten minutes pass and nothing, so we falg down our original waiter and have the order canceled. He cleared the table and got us our bill (minus the second steak) with no apologies. The one steak we did have was not a $39 steak. We left an appropriate tip and got the hell out of there. Will never, ever visit this place again.

A very disappointing meal and perfunctory service. With a 6:30 reservation and a 5 minute early arrival, our meal was at last served at 7:35. (And no, we were not indecisive patrons.) 12 - 15 minutes after placing the order, the server returns to announce that our meat selections were not available. By the time we received our 2nd choices, the meat was at best warm - parts of the steak were actually room temperature. Our server, although congenial in nature, did not seem to be fully invested in her duties or commitment to service and detail. Our first and last trip to Portland Prime. For the prices this establishment commands, I would have expected are better product and service. In this man's experience, your money is better spent at Ringside or Ruth's Chris.

Great food and with a GoupOn a reasonable price. We had the Brie, Onion Soup and seafood fettuccine. Desert was marionberry cheesecake YUM. They have a new chef maybe the food has gotten better?
