This was my third time dining at this restaurant. Once prior to the pandemic and twice since dining outside. While the meals were more than satisfactory the service in both post pandemic occasions was generally poor. It took 20 minutes for us to get with our server to place a drink order and another 10+ minutes to get our drinks. Then more waiting for the server to take our order. Every contact with the server took a very long time. While placing a dessert order I asked for a check thinking I might outsmart the poor system. No such luck. Had to wait some more to get a check and had to call the server over to take the money. I like this restaurant. Many good thing offered. The service is just not up to the task. Please evaluate how you are serving and perhaps if your servers are up to the task.

Fantastic place! We eat there every summer on our way back to Portland from a California lake vacation. It was such a pleasure to see the staff eager to serve despite Covid and the many extra precautions they have to take. Everyone had a positive attitude and the food, as always, was excellent. I am a food snob and this is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Oregon! So glad to see it has remained opened during the pandemic.

Beautiful setting. Disappointed in the menu - French onion soup when it’s 100 degrees? Hangar steak was tough. Not a big selection of small plates.

What a lovely place to dine ‘al fresco’. A sort of secret garden ambiance with exceptional service from the moment we waited outside for a table. Excellent drinks and tasty food! Our new, favorite place.

Peerless is the perfect place for a special meal during the Covid outbreak. All seating is outdoors, and all of the tables are more than 6 feet apart. Safety precautions were followed by all staff that we encountered. We had excellent service, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

My wife and I had a wonderful evening at Peerless. Our waiter Colin was excellent, as was the food and atmosphere. I can't believe we have lived in the valley 40 years and have missed this gem. We will defiantly be going back.

Celebrated my 80th birthday with dinner in the Peerless Garden with several family members and friends. Everything, everything was perfect. Menu varied, food delicious. Service was spot on but not annoying. Ambiance sublime on a lovely June evening. Spacing was excellent. Couldn't have asked for more.

We have eaten at Peerless several times over the years through various cooks, menus and table arrangements. We didn't know what dining experience to expect during this carefully regulated COVID era. Peerless delivered a graciously served, elegantly presented meal in their naturally socially distanced garden and the best menu we had ever had there. We would highly recommend it!

It was not really what we were expecting. The food was DELICIOUS but the ambiance was pretty plain compared to what we were expecting and had seen in pictures online. We waited about 7 min to be seen by a hostess and about 15 min after our reservation just to be seated. Then another 10-15 min just for our waitress to come and introduce herself to us, which was kind of awkward. I get it’s covid times and everyone is adjusting to the new rules but it would’ve been nice to at least have acknowledged our wait and patience.

This was the first time post quarrantine for me to go to a restaurant. The staff all had on facemasks and made the customers feel safe. Our table was far from others and service and attention were fantastic. The food was impeccable as always.

I went to The Peerless alone, and it was an evening of entertainment and excellent food. The service was friendly, efficient, and impeccable. The food was beautifully presented and was some fresh ideas on flavors and preparations. I will go there again on my next trip to the area and would highly recommend The Peerless.
