Editorial review from Citysearch 12/14/2012

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. more

Totally sucks! 2/7/2011

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.\r \r The staff acts as if they are culinary geniuses. I was embarrassed for them.\r \r 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.\r more

Could be better 12/23/2010

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. more

Happy Hour 5/20/2010

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.\r \r We had the cheese plate for a starter that came with a marmalade and an assortment of nuts...was superb!\r \r After that we had the ""snails and frog legs"" I was not sure what to expect but they were expertly prepared and absolutely wonderful.\r \r Everything about this happy hour venue is perfect. The ambience, the menu, and the service was just great. Thanks Heathman. Pros: Unique menu Cons: What cons? more

Mediocre and overpriced holiday tea 12/18/2009

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. Pros: setting is Christmassy and cozy Cons: long wait to get in, mediocre food, and overpriced! more

Really great food and service! 9/12/2009

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! Pros: BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE EVER MADE more

Fantastic Food 7/28/2009

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. Pros: French influenced food with Northwest ingreedients. Cons: Can be expensive! more

Great Service! 5/28/2009

My wife and I attended the Mothersday brunch. The food was great but the service was something to be desired. we contacted the management and they went above and beyond to make up for the not so great service. They sent us a $100 gift card. We took advantage of it this week and the service was great. The staff was curious and helpful. Danial our waitress was very helpful and understanding after ordering a meal that was not to my liking and quickly brought me something else at no charge. The food was wonderful. I can't say enough about the great experience we had. I highly recommend Heathman! 5 stars for a 5 star restaurant! Pros: Great Food, great service Cons: none! more

Disappointing Happy Hour 4/3/2009

We had heard the Heathman had a great happy hour so my partner and I both went on a Thursday night to check it out. We ordered 5-6 plates between us and only really liked 2. The oysters I had were really overcooked and tough but the sauce on them was great. The pate was by far the worst I have ever had. I also ordered the roasted pear and chevre salad which was absolutely excellent! The cheese plate we got was very very miniscule for 5.95 (even by happy hour standards). the bread they serve you when you sit down is very yummy though.\r But beyond the sub par food, the worst part of our experience was the service. We were one of two couples in the lounge for the late night happy hour and our waitress was fine up until half way through our meal. We were waiting for our water to be refilled and order another round of cocktails but she was too busy chatting with the hostess for the next 15 minutes (I kid you not) to check on us. When she finally did come over we asked to order dessert. She gave us the menu and went back to talking with the hostess. We sat again. and waited again for a good 10 minutes trying to get her attention. Finally we got the attention of the bar tender and asked for our check instead. the bartender cashed us out and we tipped her instead of our waitress. \r Note to waitresses/waiters= pay attention to the patrons instead of standing around gossiping with your hostess friends. Especially when we were your ONLY table.\r For paying almost $60 for a happy hour I expected Portland city grill quality/ Higgins quality. I got neither and we will not be returning. There are so many great happy hours in portland, don't make the mistake of going to this one. Pros: The pear and chevre salad/ martini Cons: almost everything else more

Great For Breaskfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Happy Hour, Drinks... 3/7/2009

The Heathman's menu is always exceptional, regardless of the meal. Between the dining room, the lounge and the marble lobby, there are plenty of seating options. The wait staff are helpful and courteous, and service is excellent. I would especially recommend weekend brunch, which includes some of my favorite dishes the Heathman has to offer like the Smoked Salmon Hash, Pork Loin Benedict, and delicious omelets. The happy hour/small plate menu is very good. The Heathman keeps better hours than many restaurants in town - serving the same awesome food and drinks during the recent snowstorm that seemed to paralyze the rest of the city... Pros: Food, drinks, service, atmosphere. Cons: Sometimes busy. more

Don't go on a holiday.. 2/16/2009

On any other night I believe I would be able to give a better score, but being that we went on Valentine's, they had chosen to seat to overflowing capacity. We were seated in the center of the room in a row of seven two person tables stuck right together, pretty much bumping elbows, so there was absolutely no privacy...we could hear everything the couples on either side of us were saying and vice versa. I don't think these tables are usually there, they just brought extras in to accomodate the masses. It was terribly uncomfortable and awkward, like being in a fishbowl. Plates of Foie Gras, compliments of the chef, were sent out to all the couples subjected to this close proximity which was a nice gesture, but really didn't make us feel any better especially since we both hate liver. The food and drinks were pleasing and the service outstanding inspite of the overcrowding. I made the reservation only a week out so I understand I was late and should take what I get, but I would rather they have chosen to limit the number of reservations and told us there was nothing available so we could enjoy a more intimate dining experience elsewhere instead of turning us into sardines on one of the most romantic nights of the year. From what I've read it seems on most holidays you receive similar treatment. We'll try again on a non-holiday evening and hopefully we'll have better luck. Pros: Excellent service, good food Cons: overcrowding more

Heathman Restaurant 1/7/2009

The Heathman Restaurant provides wonderful food in a beautiful atmosphere. It is located in the heart of Portland so that you can eat and attend a concert without much effort. We recommend this place to anyone who wants a beautiful time with someone. more

wonderful! 12/23/2008

This is fine dining at it's best! The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is upscale, and the decor is fabulous. I can't think of one things bad about this restaurant (except it is very costly...but worth it). It makes a perfect eleborate night on the town. If you are trying to impress someone then this is the place to go. more

great place 12/13/2008

This is one of the old hotels in the area but they really kept it up. The rooms are a little small but they make up for it by the cleanliness of the hotel the beds are great and the staff is very courteous. more

A consistently great place for a nice dinner in Portland 12/11/2008

There are not many restaurants in Portland where my partner and I can go and expect what I would call ""professional service."" You know what I'm talking about...this is a town where you can expect the server to nonchalantly show up at your table with a cool head nod and say, ""Hey, how's it going?"" When he feels like it. And that's totally fine and chill most of the time, but there are times when you want to go out and enjoy a dinner and have it feel ""special."" A lot of the time, we choose Heathman for that. It is not at all stuffy, but the serving staff there is a cut above, and we enjoy it. The food is consistently good French-NW, nothing crazy, just delicious quality food prepared well. The wine list is excellent, we've have wonderful recommendations for reasonably priced bottles (under $40) from our server. A consistently good dining experience. Pros: Quality, consistent food and excellent, professional service Cons: Parking, may need reservations more

Fantastic! 11/11/2008

I was taken here by my aunt and absolutely loved the food! I had this fantastic salmon and it wasn't an overwhelming amount of food. A little pricey for me but worth it/. more
