Portland >Heathman Restaurant
Octopus caught off the coast? Yes,
please! That local delicacy was marinated and served chilled with a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette as a recent starter, shocking in its ultra-tenderness. This was just one of the impressive dishes highlighting the amazing ingredients from the Northwest. The beautifully prepared wild Chinook salmon with pea tendrils and fava beans was another seasonal treat.
The real treat was the gracious service in this busy dining room, especially our seasoned waiter, who suggested excellent Oregon wine matches for the food. The Adelsheim Pinot gris was brilliant with the first course, and the deeply flavored, Burgundian-style Domaine Serene was incredible alongside the salmon.
The menu might give potential diners that this venue is formal, but the crowd on a Monday night was a mix of casually attired guys and gals, businessmen and even a few stroller-pushing families. Everyone seemed united in their enjoyment of the plates set before them.
Old school swank reigns at this venerable downtown hotel, so go ahead and put on pantyhose before sinking into a tea court banquette and downing a few dirty martinis. For all the posh at budget prices, hit happy hour—2pm til close every day!
I had ridiculously good seafood stew here with my parents not long ago and the service was so good. It was one of the few places where the server didn't say 'Hey, Guys, How 'ya doin'?' For the money and atmosphere that would have been sub-optimal, but sadly many servers aren't trained to be respectful. The food was great, we went for dessert and everything. Lovely.
Great hotel BUT... It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at goo.gl/FPxYD They have some of the best hotel deals on the web!
Had the worst service and food ever! Sent an email to G. Peck, the restaurant manager to tell him about our experience and he didn't bother to reply.
The staff acts as if they are culinary geniuses. I was embarrassed for them.
Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Don’t waste your money on this place. Higgins is right up the street and way better.
Could be better. Had a few friends in town and decided to take them to the Heathman for brunch. First off the service was bad. It took forever for the server to take the order then he forgot what we ordered. On top of that, the potatoes weren't cooked all the way. I hope they change because I really enjoyed this restaurant in the past.
heathman restaurant isnt worth visiting.
the food used to be great and now its barley edible
My good friend and I found a really comfy booth next to a real fireplace and had the best happy hour that I had in a long time. The Malbec was really great, she had the house white that was the happy hour special.
We had the cheese plate for a starter that came with a marmalade and an assortment of nuts...was superb!
After that we had the "snails and frog legs" I was not sure what to expect but they were expertly prepared and absolutely wonderful.
Everything about this happy hour venue is perfect. The ambience, the menu, and the service was just great. Thanks Heathman.
Sunday Brunch. This is my fav Sunday Brunch spot. The staff is so friendly and attentive, beautiful interior and decor, and great breakfast and brunch menu. Affordable happy hour.
Mediocre and overpriced holiday tea. Our waitress, when we finally got one, was terrific, but the little cakes and the marshmellow thingy were pretty but awful. You get one of everything and everything is tiny so you'll need to go out for a hamburger afterwards. The tiny sandwiches were delicious, but as I already said, you only got one apiece. The bottom line was the Heathman Holiday Tea is pretentious and grossly overpriced. $32 bucks for pretty little airy nothings! Bah, humbug! I definitely won't be going again.
Really great food and service!. Wow, if you like chocolate cake, well be prepared to die of satisfaction. Also, the rest of the food is amazing too. The cheeses are incredible and the drinks, oh my gosh they are amazing!!! Their cocktail list is very sophisticated and the drinks definitely deliver. No fluff here. Just good, solid mixology. But seriously, I have eaten chocolate cake a bajillion times and nothing compares to this! And the service is very friendly and knowledgeable too so that's a big plus!!! Please check it out!
I've been eating at The Heathman for years. It is my go-to place for a special luncheon or dinner or before a show at the Schnitz. It is the place I go to to eat when i want something fancy and don't feel like making it myself!
Miso marinated black cod... now there's a dish that will remain seared in my memory forever. Delicious, melted in my mouth like butter. Or how about seared pork belly? Fabulous!
So if I love this place, why only 4 stars? Because the weekend staff (Thurs-Fri-Sat) rocks! But when I went there for my birthday on April 1st (a Wednesday), my party of TWELVE was served in a slow and dismissive manner by a female server I'd never seen before (it doesn't take 20 minutes to get a cocktail!). Mind you it was 8:30pm on a Wednesday and we were one of only TWO tables in the place with customers (the bar wasn't busy either). Why such bad service? I'd like to believe it wasn't because myself and my party were dressed like hip urbanites in all black clothing and looked a little 'different' from the blonde server. I'd like to believe it was just because she was newer or perhaps poorly trained. She even FORGOT one of my guest's entrees entirely! Point being, hip urbanites in black clothing pay their bill and tip WELL for good service (20%+). While I get that an 18% gratuity was assured, our server could have acted like she cared if we were served.
