Great spot in a great small town for wine and food!
Always wonderful. Great cooking in a pleasant setting. Menu doesn’t change much, but it is all good and there are always specials. We had two specials - trout and seared pork belly and the were both great. Also a real bargain. Three courses for $35.00. Wonderful art on the walls. Will always visit when we are in Oregon wine country.
Gilbert's great place is as good as ever. Never miss a chance to dine with him when we're nearby.
It's nice to take a step up from good bar food to food prepared by a competent chef. $35 for a three course dinner is not an outlandish price to pay. One peculiar waiter diminished our experience very slightly, but blemishes are evidence of authenticity.
We are early diners, so we had our choice of tables. The menu is not extensive, but everything on it is truly supreme... whether it be the appetizers, soup/salad, or entree. I had the Coquilles St Jacques while my husband had the pork medallions. Their $35 Prix Fixe dinner was an amazing bargain. Despite being completely stuffed from finishing every bite, our waiter managed to talk us into a shared dessert... crime caramel! Delicious. Needless to say, we will be back!
Enjoyed it even more the second time around. Carlton is a pleasant little town and the restaurant has all the ambience of a true French bistro. We have a reservation for an additional night and it will not be the last time we return.
Visited Cuvée for my boyfriend’s 30th birthday and also the birthday of our friend. We were staying in McMinnville on vacation from Minnesota. Last year we were in Paris for his birthday. Our dinner at Cuvée was just like being back in France, a lovely experience with great food, an entertaining/humorous host, excellent service and good value. We’ll be back!
We had the best time her in Carlton at Cuvée. Exceptional service from the owner and staff. Would 100% recommend a trip here. They are the nicest and the food was delicious. Thanks!
We were very impressed. Great atmosphere. Impeccable and knowledgeable service. Food was excellent. Wine suggestions equally great. Try the Lustreau sherry.
We are “regulars” and our first return after COVID-19 reminded us that we need Cuvee.
A wonderful way to return to dining out (phase I ) -
I’ll be back soon . Maybe this Friday !!
Cuvee always provides us with an amazing meal. Covid19 precautions aside, whether it's date night or dinner with friends, Cuvee is the best in the Carlton area.
This is one of our go-to restaurants in the Willamette Valley. The prix-fixe menu is affordable and Gilbert's cooking is wonderful. Always a good meal.
Our favorite French bistro. Gilbert is owner/chef and his dry wit is charming. The food and service are always perfect and the value for the quality is superb.
Our first dinner out since the pandemic hit. Cuvee was the perfect choice. Small groups, socially distant, proper PPE ~ all that on top of excellent food and service.
Cuvee is one of my favorite places to eat. Henry is the best host and the food and service are excellent. You can't beat the $35 3 course menu and he always has a couple of other specials. I highly recommend Cuvee, you will not be disappointed.
Very good food. Reasonable prices for pre fixe. Great small town atmosphere and helpful staff.
Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. We have eaten here multiple times and always know we will have a superb experience!
Cuvee is a wonderful restaurant both in terms of atmosphere and food. This is beyond any doubt our favorite "special occasion" restaurant in Oregon. It is affordable and the dishes are amazing. We drive almost 60 miles to eat there, and would visit Cuvee all the time if we lived closer!
We had a wonderful meal! What a pleasant surprise. So happy to support this business.
This is always a real dining treat!!! The food is delicious and the preparation and presentation are done with perfection. The duck breast was a little overcooked to my standards, but the taste and the currant sauce was divine.
I love this little Carlton gem and will visit again soon!
Our first night out since the quarantine. Always outstanding and this evening was good as ever.
Carlton is really pleasant, the drive is fun, beautiful scenery, then Cuvee’ was the icing on the cake, a reminder of the best of French bistros.
This restaurant is well worth the trip if you do not live nearby. All of the locals eat here. The food is fantastic especially for the price. You can't get a three course meal anywhere for this price. Gilbert makes the best soups I have ever had. Every dish is delicious. The desserts are also fantastic and not loaded with sugar just awesome flavor. We have been dining here for over 14 years and is our go to restaurant.
Worth the drive from Portland..Exceptional food, service, and price.
If you are looking for great food, this is definitely a place you must visit. The town is small and cute to visit.
We were celebrating two birthdays. The food was excellent! The service was great. Wine recommended by the waiter was perfect. We had had a wonderful evening!
Cuvee remains one ofmourfavorite restaurants in the Willamette Valley.
Amazing food and great service! Some of the best escargot in Portland.
Awesome! As always.
Our son’s 22nd birthday dinner with friends.
Wonderful service, great food and great value
We had an amazing meal and our service was great! I highly recommend the three course meal option. For the money it was a great value. We will be back.
This restaurant is what a great meal is all about. It's simple, fresh, fantastic food prepared by an expert. The ambiance is just right - quiet and cozy, not over fluffy. It's all about the food here. If you love French food, GO.
We love Cuvee. We don’t get there often as we would like, and the menu doesn't change a great deal. But the food is always top notch French inspired comfort food, very accessible. The wine list is simple but varied to accommodate all tastes without being confusing, and reasonably priced. Nothing snooty about it, and you are getting a great food experience. The staff are charming, playful and welcoming.
Our food, our wine and our service was all excellent! Combine that with the fact that we were enjoying the company of family we love very much and it was a perfect night. My husband and I have dined at Cuvee before, alone and with friends. It has always been excellent! The escargot was delicious as were the other appetizers and it just kept getting better right thru the dessert and coffee! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful dining experience.
Great food and service. We were seated immediately
Food was very disappointing. Clams had little flavor as the wine/garlic sauce was bland. My Boeuf Bourguignon was advertised as “Marinated beef stewed with onions mushrooms and bacon in a pinot noir sauce. Served with mashed potatoes.” Beef was tough and chewy...no flavor. Maybe re-heated in a microwave? The catch of the day was a slightly better choice.
Restaurant itself is nice....decor is fitting a French restaurant.
