Love Cafe Soriah!
Very intimate, we could talk to each other. While I wouldn't recommend it for kids, we had a 1 year old who didn't want to sit still but we took turns walking outside with him and nobody acted like we were bothering them. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We love it.

Our Favorite Restaurant
This is one of our (my husband's and mine) favorite restaurants. The food varies a little according to the season, but everything is always excellent. The service is great, too! Definitely ask for their calamari--it's pretty much always available, even if it isn't listed on the menu.

The meal was delicious...perfectly prepared. Good and friendly service. We felt very welcomed there. Food emphasis is on quality, not quantity, but we left feeling comfortable, not satiated.

Food and service were outstanding. Hadn't been to Soriah for several years. That won't happen again. Will be back soon. Definitely on the favorites list.

Nice place in Eugene
We ate in the patio, which is quite nice (although it could use some cleaning). It was a bit cool out, so they turned on the gas heaters (which then made it rather hot). Good wine list. They were out of the wine we ordered, but they substituted something even nicer (at no extra cost). Food was slow to arrive, and one dish was over-cooked.
We love the calamari appetizer. I had the cioppino, which was great.

Great Food and Service
We did dinner for 7 to celebrate my wife's birthday...While we ate inside, the courtyard dining is really enjoyable in warm weather. Several different main courses to choose from, fresh salads, and the calamari appetizer is special. Several choices of after-dinner treats on the dessert menu. Friendly and first-rate service.

Although marked as a "Mediterranean
Although marked as a "Mediterranean" restaurant, there's a little something for everyone here - and it's all good. A slightly quirky space and sincere service.

Always a pleasure!
This is what fine dining is all about. We had a lovely evening on the patio area. The service and food were fantastic. The Steak Diane was out of this world. I highly recommend this restaurant.

You can make you occasion special just by dinning at this cafe.

Love the outdoor seating in summer!

Attentive service scrumptious food
My wife and I were delighted with the backyard walled shaded setting where we enjoyed Soriah's Margaritas with a tasty spinach salad why chatting among just a dozen tables. The Margaritas were wonderful, as was the spinach salad. Although the restaurant was busy, my wife's rib steak and my garlic prawns arrived perfectly prepared. We enjoyed observing a Soriah employee training a new waitperson by accompanying him on each visit to a dining party's table. She stood by, observing and reserving any commentary for sharing away from the diners. Visit Café Soriah's if you have time to enjoy meals prepared to order for your table. If you want food fast, those places are elsewhere.

Great food and service
I was visiting a friend celebrating an event and this place was close to perfect. The main dish was a little slow to come out but well worth the wait.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a lovely dinner in the garden. The ahi tuna was done to perfection, and the salmon was very good as well. The star was the fried calamari appetizer. Nice service. Great outdoor setting. Would return if we lied nearby.

We had an enjoyable anniversary dinner there, and making the reservations online was a breeze. We ate too much, and left full and happy. Do note, the Cherries Flambe for 2 would actually serve 3 or even 4 people, if they wanted a nice small size!

Food of the Gods
My wife and I came to the restaurant. Such a joy it was and the food and service melts away any stress or sorrows one may have. Thank you for everything.

We were visiting Eugene, OR and the restaurant was recommended by several locals when we inquired about a good place to eat. The Calamari was the best I have ever eaten and so was the Steak Diane. The lamb was delicious too. The waitress recommended a local wine from their wine list, and now it is one of my favorite wines.

Everything was Exceptional!
I came with a group of 5 to celebrate my father's 80th Birthday. Ib came by to greet us, and was magnanimous far beyond the simple elegant dinner we were expecting, not only preparing our entrees, but even clearing our table, himself. Ib is a beautiful man, with a big heart, and simply magical with his creations. We were glad we chose him to cater our wedding 23 years ago, when he owned the Mediterranean Cafe.
His dishes are so unique, and of such a quality, that once it is taken off the menu, there is no replacement anywhere else. You can ask for something that is no longer on the menu, and it will happily be prepared, but it is good to be adventuresome, and try the specials, too - you will not be disappointed!

Every item was wonderful. The food has been great every time we go.

calamari to die for
Best app ever...3 out of 4 of us were delighted with entree choice I was disappointed with snapper special choice. Dry and chewy
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Café Soriah was recommended by a friend and I couldn't have been happier with my experience! It was elegant and sophisticated but felt comfortable and laid back at the same time. The food and wine were fantastic, and dessert was to die for! I would go back in a heart beat!

Delicious food, attentive staff
I had a lovely experience dining at Soriah. The food is reliable delicious and changes with the seasons. My favorite part of the meal was the pumpkin creme brule :-) I definitely recommend making a reservation. This is a great place for a special occasion or romantic dinner. Yummm!!!!

Great food, so-so service,
The food we had was very tasty, well-prepared, and filling. The service was somewhat erratic. After the appetizers, we waited quite a long time for our entrees to appear. And we were initially charged on our bill for 2 of one appetizer, when we only had one. I'm glad I caught that, and the server was apologetic for that happening.

Special night out for dinner
Excellent Eastern Mediterranean food; feels like being in Beirut in the old days! Owner and chef Ibrahim prepares entrees within view of your table. He is a wonderful man as well as a great cook.

We had lots of fun, enjoyed the food, wine, excellent service. Will return.

Good option for business dinner
Was hosting a UO faculty candidate and came here for the regional cuisine and polished atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed the meal and service. In addition, the restaurant was easy to work with for business billing purposes.

Perfect Special Occasion Venue
Pleasantly surprised by cheerful, attentive service and very good food. Owner/chef on site and cooking table side in dining room. Playful banter between staff and owner felt like being welcomed into their home. Small space, obvious many of the diners were regulars. For good reason. 3 of us ordered daily specials (salmon w/ pear chutney & saffron rice, stuffed lamb chop, crab & leek ravioli in tomato cream sauce) and all were delighted with our selections. 4th ordered chicken and duxelles in puff pastry off regular menu. All entrees served with the same side of sauteed (?) vegetables. I don't know how they did it, but the veggies were silky and fresh with a little crunch--worth the trip alone! Will be back when we visit Eugene next--so good!

Delicious food, varied menu
Cafe Soriah has long been my wife's and my favorite place to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and to show off Eugene's best to visitors. The menu has a Middle-Eastern focus, but has many other choices as well. On this visit, the menu had a number of new choices. Service was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive.
