    Went there for Portland Dining Month! My friend and I got the Dungeness crab pot pie and buffalo burger! Some of the deserts were already sold out even though the place wasn’t busy but our awesome server made up for it by allowing us to order other desserts on the regular menu! Totally worth it!

    We had the Fish& Chips. The fish was coated in a dark brown burned crust. The chips were tasteless and cold. The service was prompt and friendly - but we won't be back. We choose this place as it is close to the theater.

    The food was delicious, and it was served hot! I could tell, however, that some of the folks in our party were still a bit hungry after their meal. We should have ordered an appetizer or two.

    I was really impressed with HopCityTavern. I would have never known about it if not for Open Table and Yelp. Tucked inside the Hilton Hotel kind of cafeteria style with a no nonsense sport bar atmosphere. It felt a little cold but it was clean and I appreciated the cloth napkins. We were greeted immediately which was easy because there were not a lot of people dining on a dreary Sunday night. Our server was excellent I appreciated the recommendations. We ordered well Gin and tonics which cost $8 each not bad for downtown. We started with appetizers deviled eggs $7 and sautéed asparagus $7 both delicious, hot and portions were generous. For dinner we chose the HopCity Burger $16 with american wagyu beef, sharp cheddar, caramelized onion, pickled jalapeno, heirloom tomatoes, arugula, pretzel bun, grain mustard aioli. The bun held the juicy burger together perfectly. We were not asked how we would like it cooked but that’s okay because it was cooked perfectly. Fries were served with the burger. If you love steak fries these you will love there we got a generous portion with a tasty seasoning. I would go back just for the fries! Now that we know about you this little gem we will be back!

    The food was nothing special and the atmosphere wasn't that great either. The drinks were good but there was no separation from the hotel lobby. The food was kinda expensive for what you were getting.

    Hi FoodieLuv, thank you for your feedback! We've just recently revamped our menu, which we source from all local vendors to create the taste and value of our food. We are still in the process to up the atmosphere, so your feedback definitely ensures we keep generating ideas to offer that wow-factor to our patrons. Hopefully you come back to join us when all of our upgrades are complete! All the Best, Kahea Palisbo Asst. Restaurant Manager

    I made a reservation for 11:30 because I saw the 1000 bonus points. I dined and left. Upon checking my account and email, my reservation was canceled. I had to take time out of my day to go back and find out the reason. The manager there said he canceled it because he thought I didn’t dined there. I pulled out my receipt and he apologized. Awful customer service

    The lobby area of the hotel was super loud, so we were worried it was going to be unbearable in Hop City. However, the coffered ceilings were a really good choice in the dining area, and you could have a normal speaking voice conversation with your table. You could hear low mumbles from the surrounding tables, but we were pleasantly surprised with the acoustics in the room. The food was tasty. We came for Portland Dining month. Portions were very generous, and we brought home leftovers. It's definitely more than just a hotel restaurant, and we will be back.

    The restaurant is located in the lobby of the Hilton and had the atmosphere of a hotel restaurant. The food and service were moderately good, but there wasn’t any character to the place and no locals present. We were there as it was really close to the Schnitzer, but overall the experience was underwhelming and there are better options nearby.

    We went for lunch and were the second party to be seated. The restaurant was not busy on a Monday morning. The waitstaff were busy complaining to one another, near our table and it did take awhile for us to be served. It’s good that we received 1000 points for this experience because this restaurant has horrible food and service. My chicken sandwich tasted as if it were last weeks chicken that was reheated and the fries tasted as if they had been fried with fish in old oil. I was unable to eat my meal but the server (who changed during our lunch as if she were in break) didn’t check back until after the bill was paid. When they asked how the food was and I replied poor, they just said have a nice day. This place would go out of business if it weren’t in the Hilton. I will be wary of other 1000 point places since it seems the food is terrible and that’s why the point bonus was elevated. I also feel bad that some travelers might go here and think this place is representative of Portland dining because nothing could be farther from the truth. Won’t go back, wouldn’t recommend, would give zero stars if possible.

    Christina the server saved the day. She was delightful. The food on the otherhand...... The Brussel sprouts and chicken sliders were burnt. The dates were good but didn’t need the addition of the honey. The only good dish was the kids hamburger. Last visit I had the flatbread which was good but didn’t contain prosciutto that was supposed to be in the dish.

    Had a surprisingly good experience. The food was very good with nice twists on pub food. The charred Brussels Sprouts with Gouda cheese was excellent. Loved the Hop Tavern burger but subbed smoked cheddar for the American cheese that normally comes with it. Had a nice tangy sauce with a little heat on it as well. The portions are large and the prices reasonable. The only value issue was on the wine. They had OK choices but prices were a bit high. Of course beer was probably a better choice for a place like this. The service really stood out. Our server Peggy was terrific. Always there when you needed her. Efficient, knowledgeable, friendly.

    We were a group of 5 needing a quick dinner before a Portland Arts and Lecture event at the Arlene Schnitzer Auditorium. Our waitress was so helpful in making sure we had our drinks and food quickly, so that we were on time for the lecture. And the auditorium is a short 3-minute walk from Hop City Tavern. This was our first time at this restaurant, but it won’t be our last!

    Took a group of co-workers for Portland's Burger Week. I made a reservation for a long table and was sat immediately. Good thing too because the place was packed with fellow burger lovers. The food was really good, including the vegan's side order and the special side dishes offered for burger week. The staff was quick, courteous, and accurate. High marks, especially since this restaurant is not usually busy at lunchtime they were prepared and brought their A-game.

    I don't make it a habit of dining in hotel restaurants of the cities I live in, but Hop City Tavern was part of the Portland Burger Week promotion. So, I made an exception. I was pleasantly surprised with the food and service.

    The place was empty at 5:30 but began to fill up around 6:30. Our server, Pegge was excellent, our food was well prepared and generous, and the price was right!
