    We ate outdoors on a beautiful evening. We were not rushed but each course was timely. A very good wine list but they also offer paring with each course which is great for those that do not want to study a wine list. Menu somewhat fixed but they ask for food allergies ahead of time and made great adjustments. Now one of my favorites

    Pricey prix fixe the only offering, but well worth it for a special occasion. Excellent service down to the smallest details (e.g.a white napkin on the table when you arrive for diners with light color skirt or trousers and a black one for diners with black skirt or trousers). Food very creative and well executed. Service very professional and nicely paced.

    I had the best meal of my life at The Painted Lady. The service was impeccable although we were made to wait for a long time instead of prior reservations. The food more than made up for it. The place is very pricey but totally worth it. They have a very small number of tables , the place is nice and quiet , also very formal.

    We knew it was the best place in town but we were blown away with the quality of the food and service! Only problem was the table was right in front of the door to the restroom and there was lots of traffic! Also it was right by the glare of the sun from the front door. If we would of had a decent table the evening would have been perfect!

    Dined on 8/20/2014
    The dining experience at the Painted Lady was very good, as usual. The courses were well prepared and presented. The wine pairings were also very good. The ambiance was excellent. This was our fifth visit, and each time, the experience was very good to excellent. However, in our estimation, there has been a noticeable increase in costs and in the (required) number of courses. If one wishes outstanding food, but a more modest amount and number of courses, it is apparently no longer possible to just order a three or four course meal. My wife and I would like the option of choosing courses, not just staying with the fixed six course dinner. Excellent experience, but for this single exception

    This fine dining spot is a must for foodies visiting the local Oregon Pinot noir region. The tasting menu is regionally and locally designed around the current season and a feast for the visual as well as the palate. One suggestion would be two versions of the tasting menu, one with fewer courses for those desiring a lighter meal after an afternoon of wine tasting. Looking forward to our next gastronomic adventure there!

    We are spoiled by all the amazing Portland restaurants and always have low expectations of restaurants elsewhere in Oregon. We have tried all of the other nice places out here (thistle, la rambla, Jory, recipe, etc). This place was fantastic, every dish was impressive and the desserts were creative and amazing. Beast level deliciousness, great service although the pacing was a little too slow. We did the caviar and foie add ons, both were great. Best place to have dinner in the Oregon wine country for sure.

    We didn't think it was possible, but with the latest menu, The Painted Lady has outdone themselves! We have dined there many times and saw improvements where we didn't think any were possible and our two friends from the San Francisco Bay Area were completely taken with the food, service, and ambience. The entire dinner was absolutely flawless, with each course so completely unique and delicious--flavor, texture, color, and presentation all combined to make each dish spectacular. We were very proud to introduce our friends to this wonderful dining experience and were once again so pleased to be able to enjoy it right in our own neighborhood!

    Among a small group of fine dining opportunities in the Willamette Valley wine country is this attentive gem in Newberg. As it should be, the food is the highlight, with a focus on organic, fresh ingredients. This kitchen staff pay attention to the details, and each main, as well as accompanying item is distinctively tasty and complementary to its partner components on the plate. With advance notice of food intolerances to gluten and dairy, a proactive inquiry by the reservation staff, the kitchen staff had made sure we had options at every course. Service staff is friendly and attentive, if a bit too dressed up for a wine country dining experience for our taste, creating a more formal dining experience. Spend the evening through 8-courses.

    One of the many trendy contemporary restaurants serving very small portions of fussy often over-worked food. Only a few courses lived up to its reputation. Service was spotty considering it pretentions to fine dining. Nice atmosphere. Perhaps foodies will enjoy the experience more than I did.

    The Painted Lady's consistent high quality of food and service has put her at the pinnicle of fine dinning in Oregon Wine Country. The wines selected for pairing varied from quality Oregon Pinot Noir from small, new wineries to obscure Spanish sherries. Service was impeccable. It was a great dinning experience.

    Three hours of comfortably-spaced courses--not the "if you paid this much, we'll let you hang out as long as you like". This was "we are pleased you are here and we will let you enjoy the wonderful scope of our courses along with the superb wines and you'll not even notice that time has flown". Wonderful service, knowledgable staff, quiet elegance.

    This was our first time at The Painted Lady. Sadly, the food was disappointing. Puzzling emphasis on Asian cuisine in the small plates, and both entrees were poor. The "slow roasted" salmon had to be sent back because it was raw. When returned, the salmon was punitively overdone. Worse, it had no mitigating seasoning or flavor, and the accompanying puree was equally dreary. The other entree was only slightly better. Regretted the elective wine pairing option; the wines chosen were more OK than outstanding, and did not seem to be inspired matches for the food. Bottom line - we will not return to The Painted Lady, nor recommend it to friends. It was an expensive experience & we will remember it, but not for the reasons we had hoped.

    Fourth annual trip to Willamette Valley and fourth trip to The Painted Lady. Great food, wonderful service. Menu changed since last year, only one menu to select (choices possible on about three courses) vs. the previous five or seven course set menu. Consistently good, should not be missed when in the area.

    4th visit to The Painted Lady. Have had wonderful times there and exquisite dishes. For whatever reason, they seem to have shifted to a more Asian flair. Disappointing. Asian theme overused everywhere. We like Asian food, just not expecting it here. The evening was further dampened by a party at a nearby table who we'll call sticks in the mud to be nice. We take many pictures because we were on vacation. These fools were bothered by the flash and came over to ask us to stop taking pictures, further hindering our evening. May go back but considering we're from South Florida and they're in Newberg, Oregon, we may choose other establishments in the area.Found the person that waited on us to be less than humble. Nearly $300 tab.

    Service is impeccable. Food is beautifully presented and wines are nicely paired with each course. Would like to see more emphasis on NW wines rather than world wide as it used to be. Or perhaps give options of world wide or local. There is enough selection and variety in this area to do that. Restaurant tables are situated a bit too close thereby losing privacy. It is still worth a visit as the food is truly outstanding and the service friendly and attentive.

    Without sounding over the top, this place is over the top. But in a great way. Absolutely perfect service combined with delicious food. Best meal for us in a long while (and we've had some pretty good meals!). The only other thing else to point out is that it's prix fix. We are not usually fans of this thpe of dining. However, the portions were small enough so you didn't feel too full at the end AND each dish was exquisite. If you are visiting the Willamette Valley, don't miss this place -- a must visit.

    Outstanding dining experience! I had learned of this restaurant from a business partner who had dined at there in previous month and strongly recommended it. My wife and I decided to celebrate my birthday at The Painted Lady and we were not disappointed. We appreciate the skills required to create haute cuisine and have been able to eat at fine restaurants, from to New York to those throughout the world. The Painted Lady was on par with the best we have experienced. The elements and presentation of each course was a savory delight! Could not recommend it more highly!

    The food was out of this world...lick your plate good! The portions are small but there are many courses. We were both stuffed at the end of the evening. Everything was delicious and impeccably presented. However, with tip, our bill for two people was just shy of $400. We had the fixed price menu and the wine pairing. That is excessive, even if the food and wine were great. You would think at the prices that they charge, they could have included a cup of coffee at the end without an extra charge. It was small but insulting.

    My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Painted Lady recently. This is a dining experience that should be savored and remembered for a long time afterwards. The food, consisting of a tasting menu was innovative and flat out delicious! The staff was extremely knowledgable and very professional. Unlike many places currently, this is an elegant atmosphere, where one can have a conversation, and enjoy a romantic interlude. A great place for a special occasion, or to just enjoy wonderful food in a lovely setting.
