We loved Cuvee! The food was fabtastic. My fiancee was very happy to find out the asparagus soup that evening was vegetarian, and I personally thought it was one of the better soups I've ever had. Her halibut (the fish for the evening) was absolutely amazing. Perfectly pan seared with a balance of crispness on the outside and tenderness on the inside. A flavorful but not overpowering chive beurre blanc capped it off. The service was excellent as well, very engaging and informative, with a good dash of humor. All in all, it was a wonderful evening and we will surely be back next time we are in the area.

Food was average. Wine list weak and inadequate for the region. OK place for dinner but not near as special as the website would lead you to believe.

We are longtime diners at Cuvee and appreciate Chef Gilbert Henry's attention to a truly delightful dining experience each time we visit. We have made the trip from Portland to Carlton every winter for many years for one dish: Crab Juniper. It is a seasonal menu item only during Dungeness crab season, usually off the menu around April 1. A blend of exotically seasoned basmati rice, delicate white fish, Dungeness crab, pears, and cream sauce. Other standard consistent menu dishes are equally as good, our friends like the Boeuf Bourguignon. The Prix Fixe menu is $35 for three courses, we feel it is a great value for the quality of food and very pleasant experience.

Cuvee is one of my favorite French restaurants and we're quite lucky to have it in out little town of 2,000. definitely a perfect spot, after all the wine tasting, to land and enjoy the incredibly fresh and perfectly cooked food at this establishment.

We didn’t know what to expect and were lucky to get a reservation. The restaurant was full of local people from nearby wineries and other close areas. We had salad and soup and then beef bourguignonne. A. Were wonderful. And then Creme Brulee flavored with cardamon and other spices. The total bill was $72 for 2 including tip. We will return. The decor was just like a french bistro hence the name.

Although a destination for those who live in Portland, it is easy enough to make a day of it in Carlton with all its tasting rooms or in the nearby vineyards. End with a dinner at Cuvee. Really well priced, delicious prix fixe.

We celebrated our friend's birthday at Cuvee over the weekend. The servers were wonderful, attentive, funny, and kind. We may have been a little loud for the others in the restaurant as most of the other tables were intimate two tops. Great place for a date night or special occasion. Unfortunately, there were three of us that had an upset stomach later that night after our meal. If not for that, I would have awarded Cuvee a 5 star.

We enjoy the wait staff as well as the food. We know we can get a great meal at a reasonable price along with a stellar wine selection. Their soups and salads are creative and any vegetable coming out of the kitchen is impeccable prepared. Entrees are well cooked but I must admit to loving their desserts best.

We have stopped here: after wine tasting in the area, after showing out-of-towners our part of Oregon, have brought a large family group,and have come for a quiet dinner for two. And we are never dissapointed and always delighted with the menu choices, the artful and delicious meals, the helpful friendly service, the recommended wine pairing, and the way we're made to feel personally welcome and cared for.
