Great brunch, excellent service , loved sitting outside by the lake.
It was a beautiful day so we ate outside. It was a nice Father’s Day! Staff was great and very attentive
It's been about 5 years since I last dined at Hayden's and I would have given it a 4 Star review back then....but it is a strong 5 star now.
5 of us and the seating & service was great. Food arrived in a timely fashion and yet I never felt rushed. And the food was way above expectation. A little pricey but very much worth it for how good the experience was.
Highly recommend and personally, we will be returning soon.
I’m pretty lenient and friendly when it comes to busy dining and any issues, but our waitress was not friendly, and when I informed her that my drink had 2 dead flies in it she just said okay, well that’s not our fault. She still took it back but her response was pretty unprofessional. The food tasted okay, and then everyone from our party had terrible stomach pains afterwards.
Our group was only five not 8, but staff was patient and enjoyed drinks while waiting. Service was efficient and super friendly. We really enjoyed our time and will return.
We were put at a table right in the
My friends and I love to eat on the terrace beside the lake. The menu has changed recently, but the food is still good.
The menu needs updating. Has been the same forever. Location is good and eating by the lakeside is nice when weather is good. Food is so-so. Some items are good and others seem mediocre. Ceasar salad as an entree was really startling. Place a few leaves of Romaine on a plate (un-chopped), pile on a few pieces of chicken and some croutons and there you are. Was less than half a head of lettuce. Really??? Music was very loud and we finally asked to have it turned down so we could hear each other. yikes.
Great views and servers. I was asked to wait ten minutes even though we had reservations and there were plenty of tables available. There were several kids for Prom dinner. So it was busy. But our food game at a very reasonable time.
I took my wife and son for mothers day. It was the buffet. This made for a great opportunity for the three of us to try out different menu items. The outdoor dining area aside the commons lake was magnificent. The evening was topped with a wonderful sunset walk around the small lake after dinner.
Celebrated Mother's Day at a table outside with an umbrella. The weather was great and the waiters were friendly and helpful. My brother is a vegetarian and loved their menu. There was a great menu for the rest of the family as well - all were very happy.
someone changed my reservation and it was not me but they catered to us well
This is a wonderful place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is in a beautiful setting with Haydn Lake views. The wait staff was excellent. The food was very good. It's nice because on weekends, you can order breakfast or lunch during brunch time. Also - we had reservations, but it wasn't crowded. This is a fun place to hang out at on sunny days if you'd like an outdoor restaurant.
Excellent food and service
I have been asked to leave a review. I don't think it is fair to leave a review when we visited on a holiday - Easter.
Great Easter brunch. Good selection and all the food was hot.
Nice place! Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen emergency with another diner, we were relegated to a booth with no view. Under the circumstances it was fine, that is the only reason I have four stars for the ambiance. The staff was wonderful and the food we ordered was yummy! I’ve dined here many times, and it is fun outdoor dining when the weather permits.
Fabulously delicious food. Great efficient service. View of lake is lovely.
Waitperson seemed rushed and brief but food was very good. Several mistakes on orders
We've dined here on multiple occasions and have always enjoyed the food. Unfortunately this time the food was subpar. It's pretty difficult to mess up plain scrambled eggs but they had obviously been cooked and then left to sit long before they were served to us. Others around us received complimentary pastries and when I asked about them, they brought out one small muffin for my daughter but not for the rest of the table. All of our dishes were mediocre in taste and presentation and it was expensive. We did not send anything back or complain but we will not be returning.
I went because I wanted the seafood paella and it was outstanding. There was ample seafood with salmon, whitefish, clams, mussels, and shrimp with the saffron rice. The location on the man-made lake was beautiful and I walked around it before dinner.
We went for Valentine’s Day. Food was good, ambiance was nice as well. However service was quite slow. Overall a nice evening.
This was the most wonderful crab feed I have ever experienced. We were treated like queens by the fun and attentive staff. The crab was huge- 2 lbs!!!! along with salad, potatoes, crayfish, jambalaya, french bread and wine. Delicious!! A crab fix. We had so much fun and will be looking forward to the next special event from Hayden's
Found a table in the bar during happy hour. Ordered drinks to unwind till our dinner reservation. Friendly staff. Busy happy hour. Dinner felt a bit rushed. Great food though. On our reservation we shared it was our anniversary but there was no acknowledgement by any staff.
I loved this restaurant. We sat by the window with a view of the water. The staff was very kind, timely and accurate. The food was delicious. We had Tritips and a pasta dish and both were excellent. We also got the extra lobsters on the side - a special they were offering this month. I will be returning many times for more great food and service with ambiance.
The food was great. It wasn’t super busy and we were sat at a very small table and everything seemed to move VERY quickly. In the future I would hesitate on ordering as fast as we did this time. We were in and out in 40 min with drinks appetizers, salads and dinner. Special occasion was not acknowledged, however it wasn’t very busy so maybe the reservation wasn’t looked at.
We are traveling, stayed overnight in Tualatin to have some custom work done on our van. It was a very rainy night and we were looking for somewhere to have a nice meal that was close by. Hayden’s was perfect, from the friendly bar with substantial drinks, to a delicious dinner, with something on the menu for everyone. We split a salad and still didn’t finish it. They had a special on lobster tails (when added to an entree) 2 for $8. They were small but tasty, and we split them as a first course. Our dinner entrees were fresh, delicious, and large portions. For wine, there was a special house Pinot noir made by the owner (in addition to many other fine choices). All in all, it exceeded our expectations.
Food and service was great went two weekends in a row
Everything was great yeah!
Always an enjoyable dining experience. Great ambiance. Wide variety of food selections. and friendly staff.
Good choice for a Thanksgiving buffet. Lots of classic options. They ran out of some of their dessert choices.
Great happy hour. Fabulous stiff and excellent service.
Lovely setting--consistently good food.
Hayden's Lakefront Grill--just the right setting for a long leisurely lunch catching up with friends. We were shown to a table by the window giving us a perfect view of the Tualatin Lake. The ambience was warm and conducive to conversation. We couldn't have asked for better service. The menu had changed since our last visit and our server took the time to describe each new entrée to us. Our lunches were good as we taste tested the new menu items. The relaxed atmosphere at Hayden's makes this one of our favorite lunch destinations.
The appetizer was a bit over-cooked and the entrees were delicious, as was the desserts for the birthday celebration. Sat outside by the lake and enjoyed the cool evening. Only downside was a group of teens from Newberg being rowdy while out for dinner before prom.
This was recommended by a friend as having good steaks -- and it did. The prices were not cheap, but far more reasonable than the steak houses around town. The steak was well cooked, and tender, although not astonishing. All in all a good spot for a causal dinner that didn't break the bank.
The decor is dated. The restaurant has an elevated area where we were seated that oppressive; felt like a slightly upscale Dennys. The retro lights were entirely too bright and had no relationship to the other lights in the building. The booths were like sitting in a 1970s restaurant.
The staff were kind enough to turn the lights down; the exposed filament lighting is hip in some industrial settings. Here it's just uncomfortable. The restaurant was empty which never feels good. Overall the atmosphere was sad and conflicted.
The hors d'oeuvres were surprisingly good; shrimp on delicious polenta with balsamic glaze. The blue crab cakes with a tomato raisin chutney were good. The shrimp would have been better if they were wild. The crab cakes, despite how good they were are an odd offering with east coast crab. I suspect they are purchased premade.
The entrees were not so hot; my sons fettuccini with bacon was greasy. My cioppino was really not; a watery broth with impossible to eat stone crab claws, clams and mussels were good but salmon in the broth that was billed to be cod is just weird. The broth flavor wasn't bad, it just wasn't cioppino.
Our waiter was nice and the service was good if unsophisticated.
There is some professional talent in the kitchen; just poor decision making and a confusing theme
This could be a great location; decor needs to feed to the beautiful outside deck. Lower the raised area so the dining is all on one floor; the place will feel more prosperous. Get rid of booths altogether. Lose the well maintained hanging flowers; they block the view and help make the interior feel oppressive.
The reliance on cheap, east coast seafood is an indicator of a poorly operating house. The menu needs an overhaul.
Hayden's always does a very good job. Food is consistently good. I sat on the lake with my friend for lunch. It was a beautiful sunny September day. I ordered their fried chicken salad and substituted for grilled chicken instead. And it was a low carb day for me so Hno tortilla strips and it was delish. Several options for Paleo Style eating. I always enjoy coming here.
