A word from Amadeus Manor
Amadeus- His works are Classical...and continue to delight appreciative audiences everywhere. We relish his contributions to the art of music.
Food has also been elevated to a classical stature...timelessly classical compositions of ingredients that entice the palette, much like music does to the ear...a symphony of expertly prepared courses.
Welcome to Amadeus Manor, the restaurant that caters to classical cuisine. Here you will find some new classics, and some fresh interpretations of old favorites as well. The current owner, Kristina Poppemeier, an Austrian native and owner of Lake Oswego's prestigious Amadeus Restaurant, acquired the Fernwood Inn during the spring of 1994. With the beautiful river view and romantic setting, Ms. Poppmeier believed it would be the perfect setting for "Amadeus Manor."

    Dined on 7/23/2013
    I dined here twice before and it was all it should have been. However, this time service was slow. OK if the food was up to par which it was not. The meat dishes were overdone and dry. The vegies were mush. The wine was excellent as was dessert. I have no idea how many were on staff - perhaps she was doing too much by herself. Better luck next time.

    Dined on 7/12/2013
    Amadeus Manor is one of our favorite places for a romantic dinner. The ambience is outstanding with the amazing river views and the unique character of the Manor. Our dinner began with a Roasted Garlic and Goat Cheese appetizer which was beautifully plated with melon slices drizzled with a vinaigrette and fresh flowers too. Delicious! We loved the Chateaubriand which comes with mashed potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas, and a white sauce with gorgonzola...it's amazing. It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to going back again.

    Service was great. Only complaint was the veggies were overcooked in the buffet line. We had a larger party and they accomodated us very well. We had a window view of the river. This was our 2nd visit. We prefer ordering from a menu instead of the buffet. Will go back again, and recommend it to friends.

  • Major Disappointment for Mom's Day
    OhWell
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    Great atmosphere and met with a mimosa....then all down hill. Service was non-existent. Brunch was an eclectic collection of leftovers from the day before. No breakfast meats of any kind and eggs are better at McDonalds.....understaffed for the day. Had to walk downstairs then wait another ten minutes for the check after no one came to the table for almost twenty minutes when we were done....too old to dine and dash, but thought entered our mind.....too bad, nice setting.

    In addition to the great food we really like the ambience of the old house. The noise level is low enough that you can have a conversation without shouting. In so many downtown restaurants the noise level can be high enough that it is hard to think let alone talk.

  • Terrible easter Buffet
    Thanksgiving
    Dined on 3/31/2013
    We went to Amadeus for the first time on Easter Sunday for the buffet brunch. The staff was totally disorganized and I had to walk into the dining area to find someone to inquire about our seating as there was no one at the entrance to greet customers. After several minutes of waiting I went over and inspected the buffet and found it so unappetizing that we decided to leave and dine elsewhere. We live in Beaverton so on the way home we stopped at Gustav's on Greenberg Road in Tigard and enjoyed a wonderful buffet along with excellent service. As I stated in the beginning this was my first visit to Amadeus and it will certainly be my last.

    Lousy Easter Brunch. Very little selection and food was just OK. No lobby to wait for a table. Many waited even with a reservation. Understaffed...no hostess. Waitress was argumentative. Overall, just a pretty poor experience. Shocked that the brunch was so bad on Easter.

    This was a first time visit for my wife and I, the waiter was awesome, the food was perfect, it was not crowded and was simply one of the better meals I have had from a high end style of eatery...not that it was too expensive. Also the owner was very funny and was checking to make sure every one was doing well and enjoying their food. Definitely recommended.

    Dined on 3/8/2013
    When I stumbled across this restaurant, I really had no idea what to expect. Portlanders certainly do not think of the Milwaukie area when considering a night of fine dining. They are missing out if they overlook Amadeus Manor. The food is wonderful and the service is terrific. The pace is VERY relaxed, so you actually are able to enjoy an exceptional appetizer before your meal arrives. The view of the Willamette as the sun sets is not to be missed.

    The food here was amazing. Very, very good. Traditional, hearty, European fare. It was not too busy in the entry level where we were, so it was lacking a bit of ambiance, and the place could benefit form a little sprucing up, but Christiane the owner was great. Made us feel very welcome. We had an incredible home made pate, mushroom soup and steak and pork wellington. All excellent. The top floor dining is the place to be - very cozy and unique. We'll be back.

    Place was a madhouse for Valentines day, but the staff and food more than made up for the wait, with copious amounts of complimentary champagne and wine. If you are in a rush, it's not the place for you. But if you are patient and can appreciate the ambiance, it's a wonderful dining experience.

    Totally disorganized staff, sat 30 min late, bartender downstairs admitted he was a temp server and never bartended before, when we sat, nobody ever offered us a drink, waited 20 min before anyone noticed us, another 10 for rolls, the server told us she was a friend of the owner and worked in construction not a waitress (she was nice and conscientious), and we were actually ok with this! We had heard from other reviews the service is poor, but people there kept saying "the food is worth it". Not true. The food was, at best, low quality wedding food from the 70's. Very heavy, mushy, rich food. We got our food, took a few bites, asked for the check, they removed one entree, We paid and left. This is a waste of a cool building.

    Made reservations. When we came in the door, we were told there would be a wait for a table and to have a drink in the lounge. Went to the lounge and after ordering drinks multiple times, we got nothing. After waiting and bugging the bartender for 40 minutes and still getting no service at all and no table in the dining room, we left. I did notice on the way out that people with no reservations were being seated, while there were at least 4 couples in the bar waiting for a table.

    What an awesome experience. We went for Valentine's Day to create a memory of our first V Day married. Amadeus Manor didn't disappoint. We had never been before and were impressed by the gorgeous architecture of the building, the immaculate, antique furnishings. Even though the restaurant was deluged with other reservations, our server made sure to give us personal service and kept us laughing with her quirky jokes. Even though the restaurant was full, we didn't feel crowded and had our own, private niche of the room. The food was also amazing. It was served at a good pace, with each course arriving just a bit after we finished the previous one and each course full of amazing flavors beautifully presented. We will definitely be coming back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    The preset menu for Valentine's Day was not impressive. They over booked the night so service was slow for water drinks and the full course meal. The salad seemed to be a half portion of a starter salad with no plating appeal. The main course was more of the same and a bit bland. The dessert was not much to be desired. Some women received a fresh carnation flower and yet some didn't (even if they were the next table). It was hit or miss with no rhyme or reason. Several complaints from guests could be overheard. Definitely not what I imagined my Valentine's dinner would be. Manager did apologize and gave us a certificate to return.

    They were totally unprepared. Absolutely, totally, completely unprepared and overwhelmed. To the point where it became comedy. The restaurant staff had a horrified look in its eyes when we walked through the door. They'd overbooked the restaurant on Valentine's Day and by about 7 p.m. the staff was ready to burn the building. I wish they had. Luckily, my wife is a good sport. We just laughed and watched. But it was awful.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    Pros-The restaurant is warm and friendly. The Sorbet is great and refreshing. The staff are very professional and worth the sit to wait and drink wine. The ambience is out of this world also and great to propose. Cons-We walked in the door at 6:22pm and was there for 45 minutes before anyone talked to us. There were 4 couples in our room for that special dinner, one of them left after a 2 hour wait for dinner. After our small salad and Sorbet, we waited until 9pm and still had not received our dinners. At 9:15 we spoke with the owner and staff and they wrapped 2 plates for us at 9:15pm to take home. The food was good, but my fiance did not order the goulash. The steak was a little small for the price.

    My wife and I arrived with high expectations. Having been seated quickly the waiting began. No service for 20 minutes! Our order for a bottle of wine was taken and I assume it was the owner who presented it to us. She also asked for our order and was off. Twenty minutes later we were served salad and sorbet. 45 minutes later, after watching other couples getting up and departing without having been waited on, we were about to follow when the person who took our order initially returned and sensing our misgivings stated our entree would be right out. She turned to leave and then asked what it was we had ordered! We took our leave, leaving more than enough cash to cover our wine. Avoid this nice venue, the service is despicable .

    It was a beautiful place! The staff was friendly, and it was very romantic. However... I do not recommend going on a holiday. Especially valentines day. We had reservations at 6:00.. And by 8:00 we didn't have our dinner yet, so we ended up just leaving. They were very overwhelmed, but gracious at the same time. For the salad, bread and drinks we received, the food was delicious. I highly recommend going on any regular day!

    Our first time here, and we'll be back. Unfortunately they were absolutely slammed that night, as it was Valentine's Day, which shows how popular it is for romantic nights out. They barely kept up with the crowd, and fell behind a little bit a couple of times, but they acknowledged it and the wait staff was still good hearted and apologetic about how busy they were. We'll for sure be back on a more mellow night to get a better feel, but I expect an outstanding evening. Food was amazing, and when the waiter (Jason) had a second to breath he was great.

    Dined on 2/14/2013
    The only reason my rating is so low, but I sill recommend this restaraunt, is because I had an acceptionally bad experience on this visit... which is out of the norm. I love this place, but would never go again on a holiday! It was Valentines Day and it was busy, busy, busy! The place was understaffed, overbooked and it showed. The service was beyond slow and the food was cold and of a sub-par quality when it finally did make it to the table. I will go be going back again, just not on a holiday. Evereything I love about this place was lost that night and the experience was poor to the point that it pretty much ruined the evening. It is normally a quaint, romantic atmosphere where the staff makes you feel like you are visiting their home.

    We had our rehearsal dinner here in 1994, and it was fantastic then. It's all it was back then and more. The ambiance is relaxing and unpretentious, and the owner/wait staff are incredibly personable and friendly. The service was prompt yet unobtrusive. The food was outstanding. Baked brie as an appetizer, salads for the first course, salmon with lobster sauce was my entree and crab stuffed filet mignon for my wife. Chocolate torte and a flan for dessert rounded out the evening. The food was absolutely perfect, portion sizes were perfect as well. Including a cocktail to start out, the meal was less than $60/person, which I consider a bargain for the quality. We will be going back for sure.

    This was my first time going there. It was very nice, classical music in the background, we got to sit by the window which had a nice view. We ordered an appetizer which never came, but we didn't get charged for it, and the main course was delicious. It took a long time to get the main course, but while we waited we had a delicious sorbet, and we got some bread. My only complaint is that the last piece of bread tasted freezer burnt, which I found odd. Other than that, it was great.

    We were in Portland looking for a nice quiet evening in a place that offered charm and elegance. Kristina was a superb host and server. We were lucky in that we picked a good night when the locals were out supporting their sports team. So we had the place to ourselves except for two other couples. Kristina made us feel at home and allowed us to savor each and every moment of her fine establishment. She even provided a few little extras to make our stay in Portland memorable. We look forward to coming back again and again. Oh, and the food was awesome. The chef did a great job on four different dishes with each having a little flair and flavor. I would say that Amadeus compares with any fine restaurant that we have dined in the world.

    Although this restaurant does have incredible views and ambiance, the food, service, and entire experience left much to be desired. Our family was there to celebrate for Christmas Eve and were seated with no menu, no wine/beer menu, served incorrect drink orders, overpriced food, drafty seats, and no chocolate option for dessert. Overall we were disappointed with this highly expensive dining experience.
