My wife and I joined another couple for dinner here on 3/10. An Absolutely splendid evening made even better by the terrific service Shauna provided us. We shared a plate of cracklin' calamari followed by Japanese Caesar salads and beet salads. Two of us enjoyed the rare ahi tuna and two the brick chicken, along with some good, very affordable...

Appetizers were great... More

The restaurant is in an area that feels sort of like a big city when everyone leaves town. We weren't sure what we were in for - but what a great experience! The staff was first-rate all the way. The food was excellent and the atmosphere so cozy! We were offered a choice of either the lounge or the standard... More

We went to Walter's for dinner on a Saturday night on the recommendation of the owner of the West End Inn, and it was terrific. We chose to dine in the lounge, where our table had some very comfortable chairs, and was next to the window so we could watch darkness descend on Portland. We shared a beet salad special... More

We went here for our pre New Year's Eve night out. Place was packed considering the big night was on the 31st. Wait staff very helpful, calamari was excellent and a large portion to boot. Beet salad was a little small, but very tasty and well presented. Wife had tuna which was succulent. I had the duck which was quite... More

We have been frequent eaters here in the past but haven't been in a while with so many great options in Portland. We went with friends who have never been and they left impressed. We made reservations a week in advance with no problems. The ambiance is very nice and it has a soothing relaxing feel inside. They had some... More
