Perfect afternoon respite
October 28, 2013,
Greetings, I was recently an all too brief guest at the Heathman Hotel bar. I had about 45 minutes between my hectic Portland obligation and my travel plan. I walked into the Heathman bar, found the ideal single booth and was immediately assisted by Etienne. She was conversational, attentive, and overall a pleasure to engage with. I look forward to my next visit in December with anticipation. Oh, yes, and the salad and wine were delicious! Parfait, Etienne!!

Should be more!!!
July 22, 2013,
I have been a chef for close to 40 years. The first time that I ate at the Heathman was 30 years ago. It was memorable as it was my birthday and my friend brought me. I have since eaten there many times. Each time, I hope that I will not be disappointed. My most recent visit compels me to write this review. When we arrived we were greet very courteously. I was disappointed with the menu. There was nothing on it that was very appealing. My friend order the blueberry pancakes and they were very good and more than she could eat. I ordered the sweetbreads and they very good but the sauce they came on was marvelous. I also ordered the chiopino. The vegetables should have been a'dente but were under cooked, the carrots were not fresh but frozen. It was tasty but lacked character. It is truly difficult to mess up good seafood, so that part was very good. The dark chocolate sauce was too salty on my desert. The cream puffs my friend had were excellent. The art of serving people seems to be a lost art as the service was horrible. Our waiter seemed to be training someone new as she followed him like a puppy. We had to wait forever for the food and coffee. I finally just gave up trying to get a second cup. Based on this last visit we will not be back very soon. This is my friends favorite restaurant and I keep hoping it will at least be something that I don't wish to avoid.

Wait too long for food
May 12, 2013,
I was a little disappointed with how long we waited for our food today. This is the second time I have been here and the second time it has taken an inordinate amount of time to get our food once we've ordered. I'm aware that it is Mother's Day and thus one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants, but I'm sure this is not the restaurant's first Mother's Day and it took us almost an hour to get our food once we ordered. We got bread after about 35 minutes of waiting, but no plates to place it on, and then more bread right before our food came out (with plates). My food tasted good- but was a little burnt (corned beef hash- which I'd never had before). I also felt bad for the server who could not turn his table because we took it up for almost 2 hours total (one of which was just waiting for food). The redeeming qualities about this experience were that we got a table next to a window, the servers were friendly and prompt, and the dessert was decadent.

Absolutely Perfect

We had thirty people in the back section of the restaurant on Saturday February 2nd. It was absolutely perfect. Sara coordinated our reservation and accomodated some special requests. She was just wonderful. The food was fantastic as always. I can't say enough about this experience for us and our guests. Thank you Heathman Hotel staff!
