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

From drinks and appetizers to dinner and dessert all 5 of us dinning loved every bite! Many specialty drinks and expansive wine list, delicious appetizers spanning from vegetarian to seafood.

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

We weren't really looking for dinner but dropped into Walters for a late afternoon drink. We were impressed with the wide range of wines and after looking at the food menu, ordered a few small plates. Each plat beautifully prepared and tasty, we ordered some more. Sampled a few more wines and before we knew it, the night was done.... More

Got the short ribs. Spicy and very fatty, and small serving. Ate there many many times and this was the first time I was completely unsatisfied, and left hungry....

I had the Salmon with pomegranate molasses maple glazed, Armenian rice, charred,fennel, red beet chèvre puree, smoked pistachios, beet chips. It was perfectly cooked and amazing. We ordered the calamari and oysters to... More

Visited Portland for the weekend to celebrate my fiancés birthday. After looking at the menu we decided that Walters would be a great place to celebrate. The food was pretty good: meals good although Brussel sprout salad had too much garlic. I previously called ahead of time to request that a desert be brought out after our meals pretty simple...

My husband and I stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel and asked the concierge for a recommendation for dinner. Now I always think that the concierge may not give the best recommendation but in this case he absolutely did! We had the calamari appetizer which was fantastic! More than enough to share and fresh as can be. I had the... More
