Having dined at C2 several times previously, I ate lunch there today prior to the matinee at Portland Stage. A small but varied menu. My asparagus wrap was delicious. Service by Natalie also excellent:)

This resturant is a part of the Westin Harberview Portland, as a regular customer of the hotel, I have eaten here several time for breakfast and dinner.

Met a friend here - we both came from out of state. We wanted someplace to relax, have a drink, and get a light dinner - and not be rushed. The service was fine, they were pleasant and allowed us to hang out for a while after our dinner. Definitely recommend for this purpose as it's not too busy, but... More

To avoid wasting the voucher, we went to the lobby restaurant and ordered two drinks at 5:55 pm, hoping to take advantage of the happy hour that ended at 6 pm. The bar was empty, but the apparently-new bartender couldn't be bothered with our order. He poured a couple ingredients, then put away some dishes, etc. Although empty, our two... More

Be a person who so enjoys his food and service I was absolutely shocked on the meals that I've had over the last two days. I entered because of a complimentary meal certificate but left with that was incredible, fresh, placed on serving vessels with care. This should be in Portland's top 20 establishments and Westin should drop the mantra... More

I stay at this hotel a lot, and I never have high expectations for a hotel restaurant, but I keep going back. I am not expecting fast food speed by any means, but this week it took 19 minutes for the bartender to take my drink order and there only 6 other people in the whole place. The person next... More

This restaurant is located in the Westin Hotel, but can also be accessed from the street. It is an attractive venue, with comfortable seating, nice lighting, and a welcoming bar. Lunch is terrible. How do you ruin fish and chips in a city on the ocean? How do you ruin french fries? They managed quite well. The menu is very... More

Had a lovely New Year's Eve dinner tonight-- had to send the first meal back, but it was replaced quickly & graciously. Food was presented beautifully, and tasted as great as it looked. Rack of lamb and Brown Butter Scallops were both out-of-this-world! Service was outstanding! Our server Sasha was very attentive, accommodating-- and came by often. She was charming!... More
