Apparently Amadeus is closed, and I advised Open Table via email on 12/24 - this restaurant needs to be removed from their site
Maybe it was a nice place to go, but when we showed up having made reservations, we discovered that it has closed down and is no longer open.
We reserved our table on Open Table for a Wednesday evening, to celebrate our anniversary. We drove a long way out of our way in the anticipation of a lovely evening and some good food. However, when we got there 15 minutes before our reservation, there was a cable across the driveway and no cars in the parking lot. We tried calling a few times and no one answered. We emailed and no one has responded to our email (and it's been 4 days since). Their phone message doesn't even specify what their hours are. We have no idea of why we were able to reserve a table when, apparently, the restaurant was closed, but we're pretty disappointed! We don't know wether or not to distrust the reservation service, or the lack of communication on the Manor's part, but we certainly won't be returning!
How and why did Open Table confirm a reservation at a restaurant that was not operating? This place was closed with No Trespassing signs posted. I will never be able to rely upon Open Table again.
Well first time I had a reservation for dinner they cancelled it on me that night. Then we made a reservation online for brunch at 10am Sunday. Showed up at 10am and nobody was there. Do not trespass signs were up. Pretty disappointed again.
Apparently they have closed.
We had reservations for dinner at this resturant for months.
On Dec 9th we arrived to find a chain blocking the entrance.
No notice and out of town friends, a very embarrassing experience.
We went for Thanksgiving. Restaurant was totally overwhelmed. What little staff we could identifydid not engage with or help customers whatsoever. Buffet style arrangement was flawed. Many stations out of food, including turkey. Wine bottles on common table were empty. After sitting at a table for 10-15 minutes with no communication by staff, we walked out. No one noticed or cared. Everyone was stressed- nobody seemed to be having a good time.
We were very disappointed, it was a brunch( which we didn’t know when we made the reservation. )
We were there at our reservation time and got in line. There was not many choices, the food was almost gone, only a green salad that was gone and all toppings were gone. Just turkey for the meat . The potato’s were nearly gone, you had to scrape the bottom of the pan for the gravy, the dressing was mostly dried bread crumbs, the rolls were cold and were like the brown and serve you buy at the store. The food was barely warm. The dessert was about an 1 1/2” slice of pumpkin pie. No variety.
We paid $50.00 each for this!!
I would never go there again!! Completely disappointing.
We were looking forward to going to this historic manor, I had worked there as a teenager and loved it. These new owners will not last! Sad !
Service was awful!!! Food was cold, not enough trays with hot food. Wine bottles were not restucked.
Reservation was canceled by Amadeus after we had received a confirmation. They closed restaurant for Thanksgiving prep. Not very coordinated.
Made reservations with OpenTable for dinner for two at Amadeus Manor. Reservations were confirmed by email. My wife and I arrived, on time, at the restaurant to find an empty parking lot and a long walk up hill on a roped-off driveway to the restaurant. The lights were on, tables set, no one in the restaurant, door locked, and two nice, well-fed cats at the door. My wife called the restaurant's phone, and an answering machine offered to take our reservation, but nothing else. Called one more time with the same result. The restaurant is in an odd, quaint location and is hard to see in its entirety, so we drove around the neighborhood to see another entrance could be found - nope.
This was a very planned, rare, and special evening with my wife. The drive to the restaurant was long.
Truly enjoyed eating here. The prices were high but the quality of food matched what was paid for. Would definitely recommend, especially on a Summer night. Beautiful view over the Willamette River.
Wonderful food, service, and place for brunch. Looking forward to going back soon again.
Had a real nice experience at Amadeus Manor. This was a late mother's day dinner for my wife and I. Real comforting location. Good service in the bar and the dining room. I would recommend and plan to return with friends and family.
Mother's Day brunch was a big disappointment. The food was cold and mushy, there was only one dessert option, and we were seated in a random upstairs room with no view. My elderly father has limited mobility and was forced to climb 3 flights of stairs with a cane. Definitely not worth the money. The staff all seem to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off and service was awful.
Amadeus Manor is so beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous. The house is beautiful. Mothers Day brunch was way too expensive for the food choices. The buffet was full of lovely comfort food, but there was no price listed online. It was almost $100 for 2 people to eat and have two mimosas.
We always enjoy going to this restaurant for the view and the well prepared food.
Amadeus at the Fernwood delivers the ultimate, elegant, slow-food experience! We've been celebrating special occasions and treating visiting family and friends to this rare treasure for over 20 years. The food is always remarkable, and the ambiance is unparalleled. How we love to wistfully imagine what it was like to live there! Simply put, this is classic fine dining at its best.
First time there and we tried the Easter Brunch. We had a great time and loved everything about our experience there. We look forward to returning and would happily recommend this place to anyone.
Really cool tucked away spot. Never heard of it until we dined there on easter. Awesome building with good views.
The Amadeus Manor was a great find ---- outstanding food, friendly waitstaff (the new owner came and personally greeted us at the table) and stunning views of the river.
This was an ideal setting for a romantic date night out with my husband. The fireplace was beautiful and large. It was quiet and perfect for conversation. The view of the water was amazing. In my opinion tips should be based on service, and we left a large and well deserved tip. The wait staff was informative and friendly and we got our food in a timely manner. Speaking of food, the authenticity was superb when it comes to Austrian cuisine and it was delicious. We will definitely be back.
A unique and special location, some groovy historical value.
Don't rely on their website. New owners, as of 7 months ago, and they haven't been able to update the website. Went in for the "Thurs 17.95 3-course Austrian meal" OR the advertised "$10 early bird special from 430-630 daily". Neither existed. Meals were $25-$40. Ordered the $16.95 escargots for an appetizer. They took forever and half the dish came charred. The butter was literally blackened and hard. Had to wait for a new dish to be made. The owner kindly gave us complimentary desserts to make up for it. The rest of our meal was "so, so". Beautiful view. Gorgeous fireplaces. But their menu needs revamping & the restaurant needs updating. Bathrooms were freezing cold. This restaurant has potential under the right management.
The feel was real. The food was amazing. The conversation fun and inspiring.
Continental/Alpine style fine dining in a beautiful, historic setting with an amazing view. The food is classic Euro cuisine beautifully executed. The service was lovely and the ambiance can't be beat with absolutely spectacular hilltop views of the Willamette. Highly recommended.
Overall very nice! Very personal service and awesome cuisine. Had a great river view, and wonderful time!
Had a wonderful quiet and romantic dinner.
Gorgeous fireplace, beautiful fresh flowers on the table, river views, and delicious food. The from scratch sauces on the entrees were quite yummy and everyone loved the bread. Seemed like service was more put together than a previous trip, think the owners have some good ideas about improvements to the restaurant.
The best meal we had in our 2 week stay in Portland.
The food was great, old school though. It was more expensive than I thought. Would recommend for special occasions. Be mindful of a steep journey to the front door and limited parking close.
Fabulous food! Great view of river and Portland. Love the fresh flowers and old world charm!
The former Fernwood Inn is magnificent, the new owner Sydney is very gracious and accommodating. The views from each room are unbelievable, there is history in every room. Her chef is a master...the oysters were perfectly prepared...and the chocolate torte was sublime. Even the mashed potatoes were a masterpiece!
Lovely historic setting. Bring a sweater for evenings. Two minute walk up hill from parking lot, then incline to main door. Lovely live music and friendly waitstaff.
A favorite location. Great to bring out of town guests.
Great meal, Great View, Great staff. We will be going back soon and often.
Valentines Day First time visit and it was everything we hoped for. Very special.
Everything was ok except the food. I was told I was getting a felet but I got a rubber steak.
We booked a reservation for Valentines dinner at 8 pm, and were seated at 8:15 pm, which is not bad considering how busy it was there. The food was amazing, and the ambaince was spectacular, but they really failed on the service that night. Which is unfortunate, because this was our first time visiting, and first impressions are everything. Our servers were working very hard, they simply were understaffed, and I fault the management for this oversight. There are 3 levels, a bar downstairs, and 2 dining areas on the 2nd and 3rd story, which each of the wait staffers had to walk up and down all night. We waited about 20 minutes before somebody even came to our table to ask us for drink orders, then I had to ask this person to find us a server, which is pretty bad. Nowhere on opentable or the Amadeus website did it mention there would be a 'special' menu...so we only had three entree options to choose from. Again, delicious, but perhaps advertise next time there will be a special menu. And we didn't get our bill until 10:30 pm for an 8 pm reservation, on a Tuesday night. Unacceptable. I look forward to giving them another try because it is close to our house, and loved everything else. But this really put a damper on our Valentines date.
My wife and I went to Amadeus Manor for Valentines Day this week. While the food was superb, the service staff was completely unprepared for the volume of patrons. We found it most concerning that when we arrived, we informed the hostess that we had reservations for 7:30PM, she sent us downstairs to see if we could get a table there, after sitting downstairs and being ignored for 30 minutes, we returned to the seats just inside the main entrance where the hostess would have to see us every time we turned around. While our strategy to get a table worked in only an additional 20 minutes, we felt as though it was a waste of time to make a reservation since there was no waiting list being used whatsoever.
Once we finally were seated, we were treated to moments of good service and excellent food separated by long periods of time being ignored. Our dining experience lasted 3 hours. Amadeus is under new ownership and the quality of the food leaves us willing to give them another chance on a non holiday with the hope that they quickly get everything figured out.
Nice building but the owner knows nothing about service. We went for Valentine's Day.
We had reservations. They did not have a table for us and they told us to go downstairs and find one ourselves. There was no greeting, no direction, food was cold and very late - drinks took forever. And the worst part was the bait and switch on the menu. The website made no mention
of a set menu that cost between 50.00 - 65.00 each. That was a shocker ...especially since the food/service was not worth the price. Too bad the new ownership has not improved the service/food. The building is very nice and has a terrific view.
