Carnivore’s dream. The aroma of smoked meat weighs heavily in the air. The pickled veggies are the perfect compliment to any meal.

The charcuterie boards were missing key elements that you would expect with any board. I understood their attempt to group the boards by flavor profiles, but we got the Chef selection plus the 5 cheese board and were disappointed in the selection and pairing of items.

Our server was unintentionally rude and awkward. For example, she would walk by and drop off drink menus mid conversation without asking if we wanted another drink. She went long periods without checking on us, then over compensated by checking in several times within 10 minutes.

Lastly, I ordered the lamb entree and was very disappointed because it was extremely fatty, completely overcooked and dry, and looked like it has been prepared in a crockpot all day without any attention. When the server came by to ask about the food, my date replied instinctively that theirs was good, and then the server left before I got to reply and express my disappointment with my entree.

When I flagged down the server to let her know we were done, she didn’t ask why I didn’t touch my plate. I feel like if you see an entire plate untouched, you should definitely inquire.

Also, we asked about a dessert I saw on the prix fixe menu that I wanted to see if it was possible to check with the kitchen if they had any extra. She immediately responded with no, which is fine, but she didn’t attempt to ask and didn’t reply cordiality.

It was a very disappointing meal, which we spent $180 on. I would not return and would not recommend this restaurant to others.

Food is always great. We had to wait for our reservation at 2pm in a Sunday and then it took forever to get our food. Service was non existent—she basically ignored us unless we needed something which she had to be flagged down for. Been here multi times before and never had this problem so I’m hoping it was a fluke.

Our second visit and it was delicious once again! Stuart and The Chef are always attentive and friendly. The Steak Tartare is so delicious that I am still thinking about it. Great wine list as well.

Outstanding service and our waiter was exceptionally knowledgeable about the menu options. We had a group of 7 of us and we just had our waiter bring out what he thought would work - simply stated: he did awesome.

Nice atmosphere. Fun, high quality share plates and a fantastic place for catching up with friends with unique food plates.

Staff was shiny and incredible as usual. Parking was nightmarish with the holiday market happening but absolutely worth it. The Gamay on the glass pours was INCREDIBLE ♥️ Must try it while they have it. Enjoy!

This was our first time dining at OP and we were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance and service.

To start, we tried the Spanish board and loved every bit of it (highly recommend), we also tried (and enjoyed) the house pickled egg (the pickled veggies it came with were also great). We chose the roasted delicata for our veggie dish and it was a treat - sweet, tiny bit spicy, fresh and full of flavor. Our only vice was that it was a tad too sweet.

For our main course I had the seafood stew and my husband had the lamb shoulder. My dish was full of flavor and the seafood was perfect. The lamb dish was just okay for the price, the meat was a little dry and there were bits of I think pork belly on the plate that were over the top salty, which didn’t help the moisture levels.

We will definitely visit again to try more (all) of the boards, small plates and starters, unfortunately, the large plate we chose didn’t live up to the price tag, but our overall experience was good and we left satisfied and happy.

Dinner with an old friend who enjoys good restaurants, and servers who care about the food. We each had a Sherry flight plus two boards, and it was delicious and ample. We could catch up and felt cared for by the staff who are knowledgeable but never pretentious.

We visit Portland 2 to 3 times a year doing the Expo Antique Show and always plan a visit to this Restaurant, the food is great, the salads creative and perfectly dressed. The staff is always friendly and helpful with great wine advice if needed and they know how to stage your meal. Great place!!

I have been making sausage and other meaty goodness from the Olympia Provisions book for years and after making the pilgrimage I can finally say that it lives up to the hype. "The Benedict" was a revelation. By far the best eggs Benedict I have ever had, which also convinced me that I need to find the time to start smoking my own sweetheart hams. All of the protein options are fantastic, but what is truly remarkable is how well vegetable components balanced and uplifted the heavier aspects of the meal. I cannot recommend this place enough.

I would recommend this restaurant to a very specific type of person.

Portions are small but yummy and the menu is limited to just a few options.

The almond appetizer was terrible. Just a handful of salted almonds on a saucer.

Service was fine. Not superior and not rude.

The location was great and the decor was very nice. Sort of modern industrial meets library.

I had the black cod. It was tasty but the ratio of fish to chickpeas was off. My friend had the steak tar tar. I had a taste of it and it was a bit bland. Was expecting a beefier taste.

Overall this was a fine place to get a lovely quick meal before a show. It would not be my style but I would still recommend it to friends that would like that style of cooking.

The food and everything was so good! But the BATHROOM WAS SUPER DIRTY! They need to do something about that. I judge restaurants a lot if bathrooms are clean or dirty. Overall food was great.
