Top Cuisine with a Pacific NW Flair
Wanting a dinner that had a Pacific NW twist, we found Agate Alley to be surprisingly inventive in its menu. With entrees like pumpkin enchiladas and butternut crab cakes, beautifully prepared and plated, we knew a highly-skilled chef was lurking in the kitchen. The service was excellent too - our waiter seemed to have flown out from a top Manhattan restaurant for the night.

Overall good experience
We were seated on time. The server took a while to greet us, but it was Mother's Day and the place was packed. The food came out to us in a timely manner, was attractive and hot. We were not rushed. I thought the tables were a bit crowded together and there was not much privacy. But overall...we will come back and try it again. Thank you

A Comfortable Place
We had an out of town guest that we took to different restaurants during their stay, to get a feel for Eugene. This was our choice on a Friday night and it did not disappoint. Our party had a variety of dinner items from beet salad to the steak special. All were great and service was friendly and efficient. The place was busy, but noise level was low enough you could have an easy conversation over wine and dinner. We recommend as a nice place to have a casual meal in a comfortable surrounding.

Large group well-accommodated
We had a reservation for six but eventually had almost twice that many for dinner. They were so nice about it. They put us outside. They food came quickly. They kept track of separate checks. We were happy and impressed.

Agate Alley's two locations, the Bistro and The Laboratory, are my favorite places to meet up with friends after work for a drink and good food. And they also are my favorites for family dinners out or business lunches. I love the menu, and the wait staff is wonderful. Nobody makes a better Bourbon Renewal. The best!

Last Minute Dinner
The day it snowed in Eugene I thought it would be hard to find a place to dine. Agate Alley Bistro was able to accommodate me and my party with no problem. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Despite the restaurant being full, the food came out in a timely manner and was very delicious! I definitely recommend coming here!
