    Really great time and lovely wine list. Shrimp was different and amazing. Blackened mahi Mahi was super spicy, too much actually. The ItalianChop salad was delicious and the fig cheese was different but really Godo! Needs more fig! We loved the food, but a few items were a little off this time: Mahi too spicy to eat, eggplant was great but a Tod too much cheese stuffing. We had a wonderful time overall and Jill took great care of us!

    Very good experience from service, to drinks to food! Highly recommend. Felt prices were very fair. Food came out perfectly. Longer dinner, but in a good way. I didn’t care for the dessert (Macha panna cotta) but it was gorgeous looking and fun to try something different. I had the carrot-ginger soup and verde gnudi to eat. Our waitress knew the menu very well and was so professional! My friend left her phone at our table and they texted me because they had my number from the reservation and we were able to turn around and get it before we got too far. Definitely above and beyond!

    The description of the food was misleading. Pork was good in the Adobe dish, but the menu said spinach. There was only sprinkles of spinach and no veggies. The menu also said black & white rice, but it was purple and overpowered with cumin and other spices. The garden chicken dish side was flavored well but the inside of the zucchini was slimy and it almost seemed like the chicken wasn't fresh.

    We go to Butterhorn for brunch regularly, however this trip was a special dinner occasion. The food was so good, it made me realize we really should to go dinner service more often. We ordered the Stracciatella Cheese as an appetizer, it was very tasty! I had the Walley Cakes, the remoulade with lemon and dill flavors were very balanced. I snuck a bite of my husband's Sausage Manicotti, which was super flavorful and cheesy! You can also taste the freshness of the tomato sauce. We managed to squeeze in the lemon cake....the crumble/crunch that came with it, really did the trick! The whole experience was top notch, including the not previously mentioned drinks and attentive service staff.

    Garbage Wine List The restaurant lied to me three times about their wine list. The first bottle I ordered, they were out of. No problem, I pick something similar from the same country as the first. What I get after opening and tasting is a buttery, straw colored wine from the west coast and a different vintage. Wrong country, wrong year. What gives, I ask. Nothing against that particular style of wine, but not my taste and not what I was after for starters we had chosen. The first answer I get is that the wine is from the country listed in the description on the wine list but has been bottled here domestically. (Lie # 1) That would be fine if it we’re true. I pointed out that it was printed right on the bottle that the wine had been grown, finished, and bottled all in Oregon. At this time I suggested, rather than me sending the bottle back and then having to comp that bottle that they should just offer me a discount and we could move on. They then tell me that they can’t discount it because the price listed is what they also pay for it. Lol, sure. (Lie #2) I acquiesced at this point tired of dealing with the ridiculous situation altogether realizing the restaurant was not going to handle their mistake appropriately at any point. They then back peddle a bit and give me a small discount on the bottle. Great but frankly too little too late at this point having made me haggle over a bottle of wine at dinner due to their blatant mistake. At this point the gm pops in to deliver an apology and another lie to round out the whole experience. He assures me that the entry for the wine I ordered was a single typo on the list, an exception to the rest of the list. (Lie #3) I know this because when I ordered the second wine for the table on my third attempt, the waiter made sure to check the bottle this time and was upfront about its discrepancy. It was again the wrong vintage. The wrong vintage by four years younger to be exact. At this point I was just mortified for them.

    The Butterhorn had the best pastries (butterhorns)! We went to experience brunch which has had the most amazing word of mouth compliments around! It was very very good! We made a 10 o'clock appointment, and we were all having such a great time in a great environment and service that before we knew it, 2 hours had passes. But graciously the Butterhorn let us move to the bar to continue the conversation and fun while letting others in on their reservation time as well!
