    We took my Mother in Law, a great foodie, to Bethany Table and she couldn't stop talking about their scallop salad! She loved her Lemon Drop and the wine recommendation for after dinner. My husband had a special that night: a tenderloin and I got their chicken special. My 6 year old son loved the cheese pizza served with fresh cut fruit. This wasn't a first time for myself and my husband and it sure won't be the last one! Highly recommending this great place to anyone who's looking for a family friendly, with excellent food type of place. Oh their homemade bread is divine!

    Paella was scorched; it should not have been presented at the table. Had it not been a special occasion, I would have refused it. Otherwise the service was good; it was a comfortable place.

    We arrived early for our reservation, were greeted by the owner and her shar pei and given the choice of any table that was open. The waiter was personable and helpful in checking on gluten free menu items as well as a special order to eliminate the bread from the Dunginess crab melt. A great variety of wines are displayed along one wall. We didn't order wine this time, but a wine connoisseur would be pleased with the choices. Delicious tomato basil soup and crab melt served without bread in a ramiken for one diner, while another had the crab melt served on gluten-free bread. Attentive service, delicious food and good prices. We'll go back soon!

    All of us, ranging in age from 28 to 98, savored and shared our dinner choices, from creamy chilled beet soup to scallop salad to pork shanks in a succulent sauce. Our out-of-town guests, who have sample many Portland restaurants, said that this may be the one above all others that they will have to return to. Those of us from the neighborhood wish we had discovered this delightful oasis sooner.

    This was our 4th time dining at Bethany's table. Each and every time we have eaten here the food and service has been fantastic. For such a good restaurant, the location is a bit of a surprise. We didn't expect to find a gem like this so close to our neighborhood. During our first visit we were a little concerned about the prices. After eating here though, we consider this to be a great value. All the ingredients are fresh. Appetizers, samplers, entree, and deserts are flavorful and meticulously prepared. The portions size is just right. The orders come prepared as requested. Although we haven't tried it yet, there are some outdoor tables available.

    Consistently wonderful and better than most "trendy" restaurants downtown. Can't say enough about this tucked away spot in the heart of Bethany Village. Always a good selection of wine by the glass, white and red. A varied selection of appetizers, salads, and entrees presented as only a chef who cares about his food can. Hard to pull away from the menu for the specials, which are always truly special. Personal favorite, shrimp and polenta, but of course, I know it as shrimp and grits. An excellent version, lots of flavor, the chefs in low country are turning green! Very happy this restaurant is on OpenTable, because I drive FROM PDX to eat here with friends and family in the area.

    Food was very good. Menu options were very cool, and the beverage list was nice. Service was really pleasant. Kitchen was slow. The place is really small, so the seating arrangements are a bit awkward. The size also lends to the noise, which was a but higher that normal.

    This restaurant would fit right in next to any of the best local spots on NW 21st, NW 23rd, or SE. Excellent execution on egg dishes (weekends only) for brunch as well as meat and fish related entrees and anything on the menu that benefits from the chef's flair for Italian inspired cuisine! Quaint spot with better than to be expected variety on the wine list; not as comprehensive as some, but significant variety.

    Went for brunch w/ my mom. The menu posted online was different, so if you have your heart set on something you may want to call ahead. My mom had the eggs benedict and loved it. I had a hamburger. It wasn't spectacular, but it was a good, solid burger... the bun and house sauce were very good. I'd order it again. Coffee was strong :) Staff was attentive and friendly. I look forward to visiting again to enjoy the outdoor seating.

    Bethany's Table is always the best place to eat. Any meal, any day, they're all prepared fresh and served quickly.. They use local produce and meats/fish............the staff is made up of their familily, they live in the neighborhood and they seem to really enjoy what they're doing. We go all the time, prices are excellent considering the quality of the good and the gracious service.They're gaining quite a following from word of mouth. We take out of towners there all the time.

    Started with a glass of wine and cheese plate sitting in the sun outside, with plenty of people watching with very little traffic. Then moved indoors for a delicious dinner and more wine. Meal was very good, especially the pork shank with polenta. Comfortable neighborhood spot - wish I lived closer, but I'll be back!

    The food is priced at the high end for Portland and the quality just doesn't measure up. We had some small appetizers (that weren't very good) and the paella was just ok (large serving but not as good as when I cook it at home). While there aren't a lot of good places to eat in Beaverton, if you do want to eat in Beaverton and are planning to spend $60-100 for a dinner for two, Decarli's food is considerably better.

    The food was great although it was a little pricy. Our server though we were not as impressed with. She was an older lady who spent more time checking in with the couple behind us. When we ordered drinks She asked my husband and I but walked off before our son could order. Everyone in the restaurant had bread but we were never asked. There was a younger guy there that after our order was placed was the one to check on us. I would go again, but request a different server next time.

    I used to go to this restaurant quite a bit ad the food was great and the service was always spot on. This visit and my two prior to this have not hit the mark. The service is always great and I think will always been as this is a nice small town feel type of setting. The food as been going downhill for a while now but the prices have been going up. This visit at my table we ordered a burger, steak bavette and chicken marsala. The burger was WAY undercooked, the bavette was also under cooked and the chicken was cooked perfect but lacked much flavor. This trip and the last couple have been a bit of a miss. I REALLY hope that Bethany Table can make it back to what it used to be as Bethany needs a good neighborhood place.
