We very much enjoyed our relaxing lunch on the upper deck. The bread was not warm nor was the butter soft. However, the food itself was very good. My wife and I had appetizers, while my daughter was served a zucchini soup and a meal...More

This was one of the best dinners we have ever had! It's an intimate restaurant with terrific service. We started with oysters for the appetizer - fresh and delicious, along with a Biarritz Spritz, an incredible cocktail. My wife had the chicken fried trout, which...More

Fried chicken coq au vin was so good, so rich, beautifully constructed, rustic, unpretentious. A transmogrified classic-Portland style-that made me smile with each bite.

We ate at some fantastic restaurants while we were visiting Oregon (Portland, Willamette Valley and Eugene), but this was the one that stood out. Great, friendly service and fabulous food. There were 3 couples and we had such a great time sharing the dishes so...More

I hosted a group upstairs for a corporate lunch. As we know, heat rises and it became very hot up there. They brought in fans for us. I thought they handled it well.
