A word from The Painted Lady
Oregon's only AAA four diamond and Forbes four star restaurant, The Painted Lady in Newberg offers two tasting menus nightly celebrating the products of their local neighbors- Oregon's world class ranchers, farmers and vintners. Inspired by the grand tradition of restoring Victorian homes across America, the restaurant uses classic culinary techniques to create a stunning modern menu. With timeless grace and a contemporary palate, The Painted Lady is more than a restaurant, it is an experience to remember.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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"

  • "went for anniversary dinner, everything lived up to the prior reviews, food, service and setting, all perfect for romantic dinner. A bit quite, but overall quite lovely. The food was specifically outstanding."

  • "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 chose The Painted Lady for a special occasion and they did not disappoint. Fantastic food, no rush to experience it, attentive waitstaff and innovative wine pairings. We thoroughly enjoyed it."

  • "Probably the best meal we've had in the Northwest, with service to match. There were an incredible number of amazingly prepared plates served over 2 1/2 hours."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "Outstanding meal and service. Vibrant, exciting dishes with terrific variety and seasonal strengths. Highly recommended. Not inexpensive but worth the occasional splurge"

  • "Outstanding evening, beginning to end. Food was imaginative and delicious, wine was excellent, service was outstanding."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Elegantly prepared and presented seasonal food, served by a well coordinated team of servers. Excellent selection of wines, which are expertly paired with each course, if you wish, or choose your own. Very comfortable atmosphere, in stylish setting. A very special evening, indeed!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Went with a fixed menu and wine pairing..no real decisions to make so we could just sit and take all of the evening in. Server was approachable and more than willing to entertain us with vineyard details as we wished. Be prepared to pay for such a wonderful experience but everyone should do this…at least once!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I have eaten here a half dozen times. We plan trips to the Portland area so that we can schedule a dinner at The Painted Lady. The service is exemplary. Waitstaff is knowledgeable about the menu and the many wines. Food is always wonderful and seasonal. Will go back as often as possible."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "This place is truly one of the finest restaurants in Oregon. Our sommelier Matthew is outstanding--his wine pairings are perfect."

  • "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."

  • "Had an amazing 6 course meal paired with wines. Service was impeccable. Each course was a culinary delight. Haven't experienced a meal this good since we lived in Toronto. Was pricey but worth it."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Tasting menu in a charming Victorian style house (aka a Painted Lady) setting. Each course was beautiful to look at and delicious to taste. Lots of very fresh seasonal items. Servers were friendly and knowledgable."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Wonderful food and service, in a somewhat "quirkily" atmosphere. We made a reservation based on Zagat high rating but didn't really know what to expect. Although it was a bit pricey, it was worth it. Would recommend it to anyone visiting 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."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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."

  • "Outstanding food and service. We had a wonderful fine dining experience."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Best restaurant in the area on any measure. Food is so thoughtfully prepared, and the staff does a great job explaining the courses. Each course is a work of art. Wine list is superb - but do yourself a favor and do the wine pairing. The choices are perfectly paired, and you can taste multiple great wines. The space is small, but that's what gives it charm. And you never feel crowded or rushed, and the atmosphere is still quiet and intimate."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The food was great, The wine pairing could have been, but was not. the wines tasted like they had been open for a couple days, they had lost all freshness and were flat. I had to return one wine because it was served in a bad smelling glass, and when the waiter returned with the wine he had just poured it into a different glass and not poured a new taste from the bottle. It was too bad that bad wine service and poor wine quality took away from a great meal."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Dining at The Painted Lady isn't a meal -- it is an experience. Yes, this is an expensive place to eat. No, you don't get a lot of choices on the menu. However, you will get food delicious beyond compare, service you only thought existed in fiction and a night you will never forget."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "You find yourself in a character period home with a lovely garden, almost as an invited guest. My wife and I have eaten at wonderful restaurants all over Canada, the US and Europe. The Painted Lady held its own. The menu had wonderful local and PacNW flavours. What stood out was the Miso Custard with Dungeness crab and Enoki mushrooms, Noria, Edamame and Dashi. We chose the wine pairing - we never do this as we are wine aficionados and know our wines - and were so glad we did. The pairings were spot-on perfect with high quality wines. Lavender milk curds in Citrus Custard and Vanilla Bean Pine Nuts was also memorable. This is one of America's best. And in Newberg, Oregon.Who knew!Now you do!"

  • "A special evening dining experience...quiet, romantic ambiance. A leisurely... 3 hour... dinner! Very attentive service. Note that the corkage fee is $35....we had a very special bottle so it was worth the fee. Would love to return again. My husband's salmon was perfectly cooked and I enjoyed the hanger steak. Really appreciated the description of each course as it was served."

  • "We chose the tasting menu with wine pairings and were not disappointed. The portions were larger than expected and the quality and presentation rivals The French Laundry. Definitely worth the trip!"

  • "The food overall was wonderful. The miso custard is to die for and this from someone who is not fond of custards. The halibut was not successful however I see it's been replaced with scallops. The wine parings were spot on."

  • "If you are looking for a restaurant for a very special occasion, The Painted Lady is the place. The menu was meticulously thought out, the food perfectly prepared, and the service attentive and not overbearing. Very fine dining, yet not pretentious. Relaxed and wonderful atmosphere. One of the nicest meals we have had in many years. Hands down better than any fine dining restaurant in Portland bar none."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The Painted Lady gave us a 2 1/2 hour gastronomic delight. Each course is small, demands that you savor each bite and notice the flavor and texture as you chew. We chose a bottle of wine, but the pairings would also have worked. The location in an historic house on a quiet side street was perfect. An excellent choice for a special occasion."
