While the Schnitz attracts top-name entertainment, the seating is very uncomfortable--little leg room. After many visits, I have yet to find a comfortable seat.

I've been to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall number of times for Oregon Symphony Concerts, Pink Martini performances and many others. I love this venue. The atmosphere and the sound acoustics are fantastic. Amazing place for arts and cultural events.

This concert hall is the best place to view and listen to some world class instrumentation. We attend symphonic concerts 3-4 times a year and intend on continuing our trend.

We enjoyed coming to see the symphony here but found the acoustics to have some design flaws. We could here some echoes. This is a beautiful hall with some incredible decor. The raised ceilings were specifically impressive.

I found the mezzanine seating very comfortable with a great 'vista' view of the stage. Just be aware of the roof supports. Have a great time.
