I would go here just to enjor the old hollywood glamour. I took my sis here for her b-day. Then came back during the week for happy hour. I can't wait to have the croque monsieur and black and blue cocktial again!

The service was also great!

1st experience with Gracies, and 'she' did not disappoint. We dined before theater at the Artists Rep. This was a Tues, so not busy. Lovely ambiance, attentive service and tasty cuisine. The prixe fixe pre-theater menu was surprisingly strong. I had the trout (steelhead) dish, and it was very nice. My wife went to the regular menu for the crab risotto, that was rich and tasty. Will definitely return.

i went to Gracie's several months ago with 3 friends.
Even though the dining room was practically empty, we made a reservation and requested a specific banquette.
Two people in our party had not yet arrived, so we told the hostess that we would have a cocktail across the hall in the lounge.
When the rest of our party arrived, we all continued with cocktails in the lounge. When we were done, we walked across the hall to Gracie's, to find, even though the restaurant was practically empty, that our table had been given away.
Later in the evening, we learned that our table had been given away to friends of someone on staff. Because, even though our food took forever to arrive, someone from the kitchen, and the hostess, kept running back and forth from the kitchen to chat with their friends "at our table", while oblivious to our table's lack of service.

The food was OK hotel food.

I called the next day to speak to the manager, and they became very defensive.

The setting is lovely....but our experience was lackluster.

My husband and I just ate here on New Year's Eve for the first time. We had reservations and really my only complaint was our table. We were sat at one of two booths that face the kitchen. I asked if we could be moved, but were told there were no other tables available (except the other booth facing the kitchen). So we couldn't really enjoy the ambiance of the dining room - we were facing away from it and in a noisier area where waitstaff kept coming & going. Other than that - the service was prompt and friendly. The wine was a little pricey ($10/glass minimum) but there was an ok selection. We each got salads - reasonably priced and very good (decent portions too). Our mains dishes - we each got fish (2 different entrees though, hubby got the special). My entree was fabulous - perfectly seasoned and very tasty. His was also very tasty, but was a little on the luke-warm side for me (I like my food very hot when it comes out). We will go again, but next time specifically request a table on the interior of the dining room.

Pros: Several fish options on menu, service and of course the food!

Cons: Our table near kitchen

I live in Portland but wanted to try out this place since it's nearby and different. We were seated at a cozy curved booth with a view of the beautiful dining room. We each had ordered a salad to start and for me a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc. The Caesar salad was very good and the frissee salad had the perfect flavor. For entrees I ordered the flank steak with pommes frites and my boyfriend had the halibut. Both our dishes were very good. My boyfriend liked that the halibut was simply prepared and not doused with sauce. We enjoyed our meals so much that we decided to top it off with a dessert, a berry almond cake. It was quite tasty.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience; friendly service, nice ambiance, good background music and delicious food. It really isn't just a 'hotel restaurant' but a good Portland restaurant.

This afternoon ten of my office co-workers were trying to decide on where in this city to have a nice lunch. With parking being such a pain in the you know what these days thanks to the ever growing pearl, we decided to just eat in our own neck of the woods and walk. One co worker had mentioned that she had just been over to the Driftwood Room at the Hotel Deluxe (the old Mallory Hotel), raving about the cocktails and hot bartender, we called to see if they were open for lunch. Wanting to check out what all the hype was about, we walked down. We were sat quickly, although the restaurant was really busy. We were greeted by our new fav Miguel! What a charm, the restaurant is a gem. The service is quick, and to the point, the server was warm and not stuck up like pearl destinations. Everyone got something different although aurged over everything, with 10 women its hard to decide! My favorite was the Matzo Ball soup, i think 6 of us had it! the best i have ever had. Anyway i would highly recommend this place to all. P. S. No need to have walked, they have free parking. Try the Meatloaf and Mash Potatoes or the Green Goddess Steak Salad too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone who doesn't give this place a 5 star is crazy. This is a gorgeous restaurant and it's a great deal for the type of food and service you get here. Elegant and tasty food. I stayed at the hotel for a week and felt no need to venture out anywhere else because I had Gracie's right downstairs! The caesar salad and pastas are excellent as is the burger. Desserts and FABULOUS and they have an extensive wine list. You'll love it! Better than anywhere I've been in a long time. The chef really knows what he's doing.

Welcoming atmosphere and waitstaff. Almost always empty which makes for a slightly depressing, though attentive experience. Great caesar salad. Fish dishes aren't anything to rave about. I wish it were as special as the way it looks.

The 3 cheese rigatoni is absolutely amazing. It has 2 distanct flavors that leave your mouth watering! My friend had brisket and fell in love. It was perfectly cooked. Another friend ordered a prawn pasta, it was a generous portion and very bold sauce. We all left full and very excited to return. We've since had an awesome brunch and reccomend this place to all our friends.

My husband and I were excited to try Gracie's as soon as we saw it online. We arrived on time for our reservation and were greeted politely by our hostess. We were seated next to a large party, even though there were plenty of our seats available. No matter, we waited about five minutes for my husband's coffee-my drink order was never taken. Our hostess took our order after 15 minutes apologetically because our server was MIA. My husband ordered the smoked trout and I the classic benedict. After we received our food (about 20 minutes later) we were even more disappointed because my husband received the trout benedict instead of the smoked trout. Both of our plates were less than warm--our benedicts lukewarm and our potatoes were literally cold--it was as if they had sat for fifteen minutes after being cooked. We were thoroughly disappointed. It was a complete disaster and only got worse when it took our MIA server another twenty minutes to get our check after we were done. Ridiculous

The makeover at the old Mallory hotel was nicely done, and the atmosphere at Gracie's was far more luxe than I had anticipated (though the chairs appear to be leftover from the dated predecessor). We found the staff, though not particularly personable, they were 'on their game' enough for Sunday brunch. Two people at our table had delicious brunch entrees while the other two struck out. I'd recommend the smoked trout, and the salmon scrambles, both were excellent, and visually enticing. The other two diners weren't as fortunate - though our server praised the Dungeness crab omelet, without hesitation we all gave it two thumbs down. Aesthetically, it was unappealing - a lump of overcooked egg, with a side of similarly colored (and undercooked) potatoes. Inside the dry eggy lump were a few small bites of crab, some with unexpected bits of shell, as well as a few square centimeters of tomato. The entree would benefit GREATLY from some chevre, or even parmesan, and fresh herbs of any kind would elevate the dish from inedible to satisfying. I might be willing to give it another try, though I hope there aren't any other menus items that I'd need to know to steer clear of.

Anyone who has been to Gracie's in the past year would more than likely not return, until now. We stayed at the hotel deluxe about 6 months ago and dined at the restaurant Gracie's with no luck, service was lacking, food was not worth it and the ambience was less than enthusiastic. We returned this past week to the Driftwood Room to meet some friends from out of town (sexiest bar in portland and great cocktails!) we ended up having dinnner in the majestic Gracie's, unimpressed with the last visit we were apprehensive. After being sat we were greeted by the manager who made us feel warm and welcome. Chef Chris arrived to the table with our first course and explained the scallops with bitter greens and pumkin puree, which melts in your mouth! our entrees came and we were equally impressed. Our server was amazing and not stuffy (which is what you would expect here) We wanted to say congratulations to the new management and Chef Chris for doing such a great job bringing this back to life! Thank you for a great dinner and memories.

Last night my aunt and uncle were in town from france, we decided to have dinner at Gracies since they are staying at the Hotel Deluxe. To our surprise (we have had dinner here before with no luck) everything was amazing! Our server Bradford was charming and knowledged, the pan fries oysters were to die for as were each and every entree we had ordered (ceaser and prawn linguini !!!!) The restaurant was busy, but we were served promtly. I would recommend Gracies now that the restaurant is under new management...it seems someone is getting it right and it is about time this is such a beautiful place, we would especially like to thank the chef for sending out a special dessert for my aunts birthday. Visit the driftwood room before dinner, it truley is the sexiest bar in Portland... Have Fun!

Good riddance to the former owner, Gregg Schillinger of Paddy's (another place to avoid). But the damage is done: the $22 Kobe burger has been downgraded in quality--but not price. The two managers people have followed around town are gone, so is the brilliant chef who came up with that burger.

This place has gone through three, maybe four chefs in a year. What causes that is anybody's guess but it's not because of a congenial atmosphere. It's a beautiful room and the staff really wants to help, but with food like they're serving now (dry sliders and the grossly overpriced Kobe), they don't stand a chance.

Brunch is no better, with some of the worst tasting hollandaise sauce and some of the ickiest gravy we've ever had. How can you mess up eggs? Gracie's can.

AVOID THIS PLACE! It's terrible! Wait till it changes ownership again and see if anyone with vision has taken the reigns. That's certainly not the case right now.

We tried Gracie's $22 hamburger the very next day after reading about it. To lighten the cost, we did opt for the $11 Happy Hour version, but were not dissapointed. It's tough for me to crown it the city's finest (as I am a loyal Castagna burger fan), but Gracie's version was quite the gem. However, it's so unique that comparing it to Stanich's, Helvatia Tavern, Higgins, etc. isn't fair. I do wish that the accompanying egg was fried, not poached, as the taste seemed to dominate. The fries were delicious and come in as a strong second behind Carafe's in Downtown. We also tried the Lobster Corn Dogs: nice idea, but far from over the top. And when you factor in the price point, probably something to skip. The peanut butter mousse was excellent, and this is apperently their third most popular dessert. The bartneder was very friendly and made up for the slow service by the kitchen. Other wait staff were pleasant, but ten minutes for mayonaise for fries is too long (just serve it together next time.) The owner/manager was roaming around, which is usually a good sign.

The only "good" thing about our experience was the fact that our party of 11 had a private dining room. Everything else - and I mean everything - was horrible. It started by being told that half of their menu was "out of season" - somehow the onion soup was included in that. We sat for at least 20 minutes with empty drinks while it took 1 hour for our food to be prepared. My meal did not come as stated on the menu and I was told that the server was supposed to inform us they did not have potato gnocchi. My pork was dry and overcooked, burnt actually. They didn't have one of the bottles of wine we had ordered. They tried offering peace through complimentary desserts - I would have been a lot happier if they had comped our 4 pork dishes that were the consistency of shoe leather. Overall, I will not be giving them a second chance.

Four of us dined at Gracies a few weeks ago and this was our experience. Friendly but woefully inexperienced server who was unable to answer simple questions about the menu and kept pressuring us to order yet was unable to provide our cocktails in a timely manner "the bar is kind of busy" was her excuse. Expensive and good but kind of boring food. Lots of grey hair at the tables (mine as well I admit) provide a clue about the crowd that Gracies appeals to. Ambience is very nice in general and we were seated promptly, however the promised window table requested earlier in the week was not offered although there were lots of empty tables by the windows. The bar looked like it was a more interesting spot than the dining room but would not return so guess we won't find out.

I travel to Portland for business 3 to 4 times a month and eat at Gracie's almost every trip. I have never had a bad meal and all of my clients love meeting there for dinner. I highly recommend Gracie's to anybody looking for a great Portland restaurant!

After reading the varying reviews I was somewhat curious as to what I and my husband would find at Gracies. Well I was suprised by the beautiful dining room and the attention to detail as well as the exceptional presentation and manner with which the food was served. While I do not know who the old chef may have been I found the current chef's selections to be somewhat dated but also pleasantly tasty and generous. The people that served us were fun and informative with the manager in the dining room engaged in making all the tables around us feel comfortable and taken cared of.
I would highly recommend Gracies for your next date night.
It seems to me some people that give reviews take themselves a bit to seriously. Remember we are just going out to dinner.

My wife and I ate dinner two times before at Gracie's in July and August and everything was amazing (especially the food). We have been away since and just returned this month. We again went to Gracie's for dinner last week, expecting the same amazing experience. WRONG!!!!
From beginning to end the experience was a disaster. The waitstaff and management seemed to be completely and utterly clueless. One manager who we later found out was actually the owner ran around aimlessly like a chicken with it's head cut off doing absolutely nothing of use. The food that was once absolutely mind blowing is now not only boring, but void of any taste. We were told by our waitperson there is a new chef in the kithchen who has none of the talent or passion of the last chef. We were informed the last chef made almost everything on the menu by hand and new chef buys it premade to save time and money. This being said the menu is now more expensive than before. Gracies do yourself a favor hire back the old the chef or get out of the restaurant business.

From beginning to end the experience was a disaster. The waitstaff and management seemed to be completely and utterly clueless. One manager who we later found out was actually the owner ran around aimlessly like a chicken with it's head cut off doing absolutely nothing of use. The food that was once absolutely mind blowing is now not only boring, but void of any taste. We were told by our waitperson there is a new chef in the kithchen who has none of the talent or passion of the last chef. We were informed the last chef made almost everything on the menu by hand and new chef buys it premade to save time and money. This being said the menu is now more expensive than before. Gracies do yourself a favor hire back the old the chef or get out of the restaurant business.

Pros: It's a beautiful hotel

Cons: Service and Food

Pros: food, service, parking

This place was awful.

Service = bad - like a bad wedding
Salad = no dressing
Steak = totally over rare

We even complained and they did nothing.

They made their choices ... they will pay with this bad review.

Pros: Nice space, but nobody there except old stuffy hotel people

Cons: terrible food, terrible service, terrible terrible

WOW! We went to Gracie's last night for our 10th anniversary and were treated like royalty. This place offers great service, they even sent the hostess out to get a specific bottle of champagne they don't carry just for us. The lamb was wonderful, great potatoes and the steak was HUGE and cooked perfectly.
Anah was our waitress, she made us feel right at home and instead of being worried about hustling us out the door to get the next table seated - she invited us to spend the evening, relax and enjoy.
The warm chocolate cake is a must as well. If you want a quiet evening with no stress and great food - Gracie's is now a must do for every Portlander over 20.

Pros: Free parking, excellent service

Cons: Almost too quiet, more people need to find this great place

I had such a wonderful time at Gracie's. First, the room is fantastic. Every table in the place is comfortable and the decor is cozy but grand. The service is above and beyond. The manager greated us and made us feel so special. He helped us through the wine list and suggested the best Pinot Noir I've ever had. The food was moderately priced and the portions were very generous. The menu is creative but not intimidating. The food is delicious. First course-crabcakes and caprese salad. The cakes were all crab and the sauce was delicate but still flavorful. The caprese was made with house -made fresh mozzeralla and super ripe heirloom tomatos. Then we had the seafood chowder and carrot curry soup. They were both wonderful. Our Entrees were the halibut and the lamb. The lamb was cooked perfectly and the 3 potato mashed potatoes were to die for. The halibut was super fresh and even though I was pretty full, I ate all of it. We finished up our meal with the basil chocolate mousse. This meal was superb. I am a pretty picky eater and this meal not only met my standards -it surpassed my expectations. This place is a great new addition to the Portland restaurant scene. I will definately return again and again. After dinner I checked out the newly renovated bar-the driftwood( which is right across the hall from Gracie's in the new Hotel deLuxe) The bar is beautiful- They really did a great job on it. The bartenders are friendly and the happy hour menu looks great ( I'll be back for that as well). Between Gracie's and the Driftwood you can spend the whole evening at hotel deLuxe. That's what I did.

First of all this has to be one of the most gorgeous dining rooms in Portland. The decor is what you imagine a classic hotel dining room to be. Beautiful gilding on the ornate ceiling, chandeliers, and wonderful upholstery done in lavender, which keeps the room light and unprentious. While staying at the hotel we had a chance to eat at the restaurant twice and in the bar once.
The food is simply amazing. My omelet was cooked perfectly, where the eggs are still soft, but not runny. And the bacon accompanying it might simply be the best I've ever tasted with all its meaty maple goodness. At dinnertime both my plate of the beef short ribs and my companion's dinner of the vegetarian 'meat'loaf were completely devoured in record time. The happy hour menu in the bar was also incredibly priced. We had the crab cakes, which were delightful and seemed to be pure crab with no fillers, and the drinks were nice and stiff.
Highly recommended!
