Was looking for a new venue for business meals. Tried Cafe Nell based on open table search for top rated lunch in PDX. Super awesome experience. Really small and ecletic restaurant with the NW Portland atmosphere. Food was great but the service was AWESOME. Very friendly staff- made us feel like friends dropping in for a drink and snacks instead of customers. Will add this one to my list of go-to’s. Thanks Cafe Nell ! More

This is by far one of the most unique and delicious restaurants in Portland. The food is creative and tastes amazing! Every course is a sensory journey, paired perfectly with the beverage presented. I took my wife there for her birthday dinner and they went all out for us, going so far as to sending us home with their tasty steamed bread and giving her a card signed by the staff! You can’t go wrong here. Go. As soon as possible. More

This is likely my favorite dining place- anywhere. Do yourself a favor and just ask John (owner and greeter/server) what to eat and taste of wine. The food is amazing, as is the service. The place is fairly small, so tough to accommodate larger groups- and highly recommend reservations as it is usually full. More

American | Eugene, Eugene

Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.More

Winery | Ashland, Ashland / Medford

The upper level of the Wine Pavilion boasts our upper Wine Bar nestled in the vineyard itself with majestic mountain views. The upper Wine Bar is always available for viewing when we are open.

Wine service and food pairings in the upper Wine Bar are available Wednesday through Sunday with live music Wednesday-Sunday evenings.

We offer two different tasting options:
Tasting our wines in the lower Pavilion Tasting Room ($15 or $17).
Scheduling a private tasting for the Chateau ($35 or $49).

Please note: Our principal business is producing distinguished wines. We offer selected food items to enhance your wine-tasting experience and are not a restaurant. We do not allow outside food on the premises. Our menus are offered with limited hours and food pairings. Our kitchen shuts down 30 minutes before close, so limited menu options are available during those times. We appreciate your patience and understanding.More

We call our food cuisine; Elevated American Pub food and we strive to craft our beer to be inspirational. If it doesn’t inspire us, then we don’t release it. Our menu was 100% crafted by our internal employees using the culinary expertise of our prep cooks, line cooks, and managers. We are extremely proud of the time and testing that went into the creation of our menu and hope you feel the same way. We seat about 260 people inside and 40 people outside. We make all of our sauces by hand (ok, we use an immersion blender) and believe that craft is not just a name for beer.More

Discover Portland

If Portlandia’s eccentric humor made you anxious to visit this west coast gem, rest assured, food is no laughing matter to these folks. This quirky City of Roses, beloved for its food truck scene, is holding its own in the world of fine dining, as well. Farm-to-table is practically a religion here, so whether you’re grabbing some bar bites, coursing through a James Beard-awarded tasting menu, or sampling a unique treat from a food cart, everything will be fresh, both in style and quality. Portlandians dress casually, act friendly, and are always up to get a little bit weird… or a lot. If an open-minded curiosity takes the lead, you can enjoy devilish doughnuts, reverse happy hours, or a filet at a famed strip club. Unexpected as it may be, their options for Sushi and Thai are plentiful and flavorfully spot-on. Whatever strikes your fancy in this inventive cycling city, your taste-buds will be doing wheelies all the way home.
