    Hidden away but worth trying. Really high quality place in a nondescript place. Probably the best local establishment for dinner. Surprisingly great wine list and fresh food.

    The service was great! We chose to sit in the sunroom. The appetizers were very good. The rest of the menu is overpriced. We had the halibut and it was a small portion for the price, and not all that fresh, albeit well-presented. The mashed potatoes with it were good. Wine by the glass was a decent value. Not sure if we would return or not. Maybe just for "tapas".

    While vacationing in Pacific City, we were celebrating our daughter's 13th birthday and choose the Delicate Palate Bistro for an upscale yet casual dinner celebration. We were extremely satisfied with our choice. The food selection and preparation was excellent, the wine list was strong, and the service was absolutely outstanding. The owner surprised our children at the end of the dinner with two very large pieces of chocolate cake which made the evening even more special. Highly recommend!!

    We enjoyed this little French bistro very much. Unpretentious excellent menu. The Asian fusion bouillabaisse was out of this world. The wine list was excellent. We appreciated the strong Oregon Pinot representation. Bartender makes great martinis and lemon drops! Good coastal find.

    If I didn't believe that the five start rating should be reserved for the likes of The French Laundry and Alinea, Delicate Palate would have received five stars for its food. It was a delightful and completely unexpected dining experience in Pacific City. We will return there before leaving the area.

    Great little restaurant with a French twist. Tucked in a gaudy-looking "Inn" sign within a mile or so of Highway 101. Waitress was very knowledgeable about beer and wine list and made excellent food suggestions. Our best meal of the week.

    What a find in an "off the grid" town. One could easily pass this restaurant located adjacent to a small motel. The menu offers a very eclectic yet appealing array of options. My husband and I split two excellent and substantial appetizers: fried oysters and ravioli stuffed with crab in a delectable white wine sauce with delicious bruschetta. I had a bowl of creamy tomato soup that was topped with a large and delicious puff pastry. My husband had seared Ahi tuna which was done to perfection. We finished this incredible dinner with one of the best renditions of Bananas Foster I have ever had: sauce was not extremely sweet, like in so many renditions. Food doesn't come to your table quickly, only because the chef is preparing it with love!

    The food was good and plentiful. Our server was excellent. Unfortunately my chair was right next to a cadet heater in the wall and it was hot on my backside. They turned it down, but then it was cold. Maybe rethink that particular table location. And we drove past it twice because the Sign was hard to see. It was big but the name of the restaurant was small and unlit. We would eat here again.

    Delicate Palate is our choice when we go to the Oregon Coast for family vacation. Leave the kids and have a romantic "dad and mom getaway." Food is always great. Ambiance and service are fantastic.

    We go out to eat mainly for special occasions. This was one of those evenings. The bartender was working as a waitress and doing the bar. She set us up by the fireplace. It was very nice. She was also very helpful with the wine list and menu items. The dinner was great as well as the presentation. The desserts fantastic. This restaurant is a great find in Pacific City.

    This newer dining/ wine bar should not be missed as it's one of the best - not only at the coast but in Oregon ! Everything we had was excellent and beautifully prepared. Even though we did not want an entire bottle if wine- the wine we had by the glass was delicious.we went back the very next evening to have yet another wonderful appetizer at the bar and also enjoyed desert. I will make sure I dine with them again (,and let friends know to go there )every time I return to the coast.it really added to our weekend of enjoyment in Pacific City,

    The Delicate Palate was a gem to find nestled in the little town of Pacific City. We had a party of 6 and our food arrived hot, and at the same time.
