Great Food, Too Noisy
The food and service here, based on one time, are fantastically good. Very friendly and informative waiter. The draw back? Like so many modern restaurants all the hard surfaces bounce and amplify the noise from other diners' boisterousness. Once the loud table left, it was much better. Otherwise, five stars.

New York in Eugene
Great food, great vibe, wonderful food. It is Eugene so we get dressed down servers but that is fine, they are pros and give great service. I have been a few times and have always been happy with the food. Great spot for lunch! Watching Eugen grow up is fun and you can do it looking out the windows while enjoying a great meal.

Great spot right on Broadway.
Great spot right on Broadway. Large windows give a great view of the activity outside. The food and service were very good. Not very many diners, however. We hope this catches on and stays in business, so all foodies should do their part and check it out.

Five star at a three star price
The food would equal anything in San Francisco or Portland

Creative cooking best in Eugene
Chef Gabe Gill makes this new downtown place special. The Muscovy duck terrine was superb and ample for sharing, and the baby romaine with white anchovies a treat. Tasty house-made crusty bread is provided. The braised rabbit with lobster mushroom and couscous was the best I've had -- tender, moist, with a lovely broth. My husband was very pleased with his braised pork from shank. Prices are reasonable for the serious ingredients and creative cookery. Well-made cocktails are available from a lengthy list or as one requests. Wine is served in surprisingly fine stemware appropriate to the grape variety. There's a $20 corkage fee to bring a special bottle not on their list. Service was friendly and attentive. Soubise has hit its stride.

Great art and great food
I am a connoisseur of great burgers and today I have reached the summit! I had a burger was PERFECT! Rare, warm, tasty, and dense. The side relish was out of this world! I am going back next week to do it again!

The restaurant was attractive;
The restaurant was attractive; parking is a little difficult; we only had main courses; all were quite good though none were outstanding; all told, the restaurant is at the level of Marche and a real asset for Eugene

Best Pumkin soup EVER!
I joined friends for lunch and was rewarded with truly the best pumpkin soup I have ever had. The hamburger was perfect and they make their own pickles!

A most excellent find!
A friend and I were on our way to California and spend the night in Eugene. We've stayed in Eugene on numerous occasions and were looking for something different than our usual fare. After studying a number of menus online, the restaurant that intrigued us the most was Soubise. The experience did not disappoint. A number of items on the menu were tempting, but in the end we both ordered the elk loin special. It was excellent, roasted to perfection.
Eugene, you need to make sure this place thrives until the next time we're in town, because we're looking forward to another excellent meal.

The food is amazing. The best steak I have ever had and I am uber picky about my steak.

Downtown lunch spot with great food
Nice choices of soup, salads, and entree dishes, well-prepared, reasonably priced, and with locally-sourced ingredients. If pumpkin soup is on the menu, don't miss it! Very attentive service. Excellent venue for dining with friends or colleagues.

Big city dining in Eugene
The entry of Soubise into the Eugene dining scene saves local diners a trip to Portland or other big cities. The food is creative, delicious and fit for foodies. The ambiance is loft-like and artsy, yet surprisingly cozy at the same time. One feels very well attended as the servers and bartenders are exceptional. The large windows on Broadway allow for a continuous sideshow of the comical to well-heeled cross-section of the Eugene populous. The drinks are fabulous, the wine list expertly crafted and happy hour runs until 6:30. I would not hesitate to recommend Soubise to my friends.

The French onion soup is not to be missed -- really perfect! My husband was pleased with the special of the evening -- grilled rack of wild boar, with beautiful in-season vegetables and saucing. I opted for the grilled lamb shoulder, very meaty and nicely accompanied with veggies and sweet pepper coulis and nuanced sauces. The house-made bread was great. Dessert was a deliciously rich, flourless chocolate cake. This high-level of cuisine is what we used to have to go to Portland to find. A very special place.
