Incredible Italian food, wine and deserts. The dinner was great, but the breakfast ran a close second. Service was friendly and efficient. We loved it.

I've been going to this restaurant since the 70's. You have no idea how many amazing chefs came out of this kitchen and went on to be restaurant owners. There have only been slight cosmetic changes over the years, but the food has always been the big draw. The menu is varied enough to be tempting to everyone, and limited... More

We loved staying at the Excelsior Inn, but the best part was the food! Fabulous late night dinner in the charming cafe after a Ducks game included fresh burrata and prosciutto on chef's made bread + a great salad. Really nice wine selection. Breakfasts were divine - don't miss the French toast! Next visit we'll have to enjoy dinner in... More

The food at the Excelsior is very good, but you get very little for what you pay for it. Service is excellent and staff is very friendly.

I always feel so fancy when we come here. It's not that it's an overly swanky place but it's got a great little courtyard that you walk through to get to the door. We went for my birthday last time and it was so good. The atmosphere is really nice, the food was delicous and the server was just attentive... More

Just love the atmosphere and that there are three distinct sections to sit in. There is the formal dining room with bay window and fireplace. Then the bar, complete with Italian tiles and where the music & dancing take place....just outside the bar room is a patio that wraps around the front and side...a narrow, more private passage way, and...

Because it is close to the UO campus, the Excelsior s a popular ace to meet for lunch or dinner, especially with out of town guests. The food us excellent, but the portions are quite small and getting one's order is often a slow process. The servers are generally good so it is not clear why everything takes so long.... More
