We have heard about Bethany's Table, and I have bought gift certificates for others, but
until Friday night, we had not been there ourselves. We loved our experience there on all
levels, great service, great food...it did not disappoint!

Bethany Table is fantastic. Great drinks (Manhattan, Whiskey sour), many flavors in appetizers, tasty halibut and wonderful molten chocolate dessert (budino). Comfortable environment.

This was our first time there. It was a wonderful experience from the moment we walked in. The hostess created my husband by saying happy birthday and then showed us to a lovely Table. Our server Kim was amazing. She was attentive, cordial, and attended to our every need. She spaced our dinner perfectly. We got to enjoy wine, appetizer, salad, And our perfectly cooked steak. She ended the night with two chocolate peanut butter cups with the candle. We can’t wait to come back again.

I went here with some extended family members that were in town. Service was excellent. We showed up 30 minutes before our reservation and they allowed our group of 7 to sit immediately. I shared the special, a chicken/chorizo/seafood paella with two others. It was excellent and there was enough for an entire meal of leftovers. Only downside was an off leash dog in the restaurant who distracted from the meal experience.

Excellent food as always. Even though we were there early in the quietest area of The restaurant; It is hard to have an adult conversation in the background noise. Love Janet’s cooking. This is our go to place for lunch and special date nights.

We sat outside and enjoyed a quiet corner of their deck, smellng the jasmine plants. Everything we ate was delicious. My favorite was a curried cauliflower appetizer. We are ordered three different items to fill our appetizer board. My crab pasta was also tasty. The service was lovely and attentive after a bit of wait.

Very nice place, and convenient not to have to go to downtown Portland. The menu is good and the food was delicious. It's pricey, but no worse than comparable places. I'd compare it to Mingos, Cafe Nell, etc.

The menu is very limited and almost never changes. It would be nice to see some new offerings on the dinner menu. I also think that the prices are just a tad to high for what you order--even for fairly simple pasta dishes. The service, on the other hand, is tops! All personnel are very friendly and can't do enough to make you feel comfortable and well served.

We enjoyed the extra touch that the owners of Bethany's Table place on their customer's special celebrations. Upon being seated I noticed the beautiful flower arrangement on our table. Our server mentioned that we were one of many celebrating an anniversary that evening, which was depicted by the special flowers on our table. How sweet that they added to our celebration! We happened to be seated next to another anniversary-celebrating couple with which we struck up a conversation. Because of our ongoing chat, we took longer to eat our different courses, which our server noted. She submitted the request for our next order based on when we were finished, not on the typical timespan one takes to eat a meal. She was observant and courteous in making sure we had an all-around wonderful dinner experience. We've had her before and she actually remembered us! Amazing. The food was (as always) delicious as was the wine. We consider going to Bethany's Table a treat for us - and it always lives up to our expectations.

Weve been going to Bethany's Table for years now since they opened. Yhe food is fabulous and they remodeled a few years ago and the ambience is great. We had a large party and were celebrating a birthday. The waitress was someone we hadn't had before and she seemed kind of frazzled. I didn't feel we got the service that we've come to expect from Bethany's Table that night. However, it is a great place and I highly recommend it.

Hard to manage we realize, but it was very hot that day (high 90's) and since the front of the restaurant faces the west it was quite warm despite the heavy curtains that were pulled to try to keep it cool. The salmon was delicious as well as the homemade strawberry rhubarb crisp with house made vanilla ice cream. We will definitely be back, thank you!

Thank you for the kind words. I don't know how Murphy arranges things so that the blower motor serving the south side of the building goes out on the hottest day of the year, but that's how it played out. I'm just glad it cooled off as the replacement motor had to be shipped from the East Coast and won't be here until Monday. We appreciate your understanding and forgiveness.
