Our emphasis is on preparing and presenting dishes reflecting the highest culinary sophistication accompanied by wines and wine service of comparable excellence. At the same time, we offer a casual, friendly atmosphere welcoming tourists, families, local residents and winemakers still in their overalls and field boots.

From its inception, The Dundee Bistro has been a leader in sourcing fresh ingredients from neighboring farms, ranches and waters, seeking organically produced foods whenever possible. The dining room menu constantly changes. Foods are house made, from pasta to soups, sauces and desserts. Executive Chef Ryan Clark relies on the pure flavors of his prime ingredients: vegetables, fruits, wild mushrooms, lean meats, fish often delivered by the fishermen, herbs from the garden and fresh olive oil. The resulting dishes are light, healthy, delicious and beautiful.

Lost our reservation (even though confirmed one hour earlier) so did not get desired seating. Waiter somewhat brusque. Food excellent.

Our meals were outstanding. We got the burger and a pasta dish... both amazing. We know little about wine but told our waitress the flavors we like and ended up with a great bottle. The restaurant itself is gorgeous and we were really pleasantly surprised at how elegant everything was for the price point.

I have eaten here twice in the past month. Both meals were very good. My daughter lives closer and this is a regular for them. Pasta and wine makes a great meal. I plan to take friends there now.

Great location and menu. Service was fine but had gaps in checking up on us that were not well timed with food delivery and beverage needs. The server was knowledgeable but had a tough time with eye contact which sends a message of “I don’t really give s darn about your dining experience.”

Have eaten here several times and the food and the service is always great. This time the waiter (John) was really great. Had a great conversation with him about different wineries in the area and he gave us several good suggestions. Based on his comments we switched up our plans and ended up at Purple Hands.... great wine and would highly recommend them as well.

We enjoyed our evening meal outside on the patio. Our server realized a party we were seated next to was quite loud and suggested we move. We are very happy we did so. Delicious pork chop with peaches! A lovely dinner.

Widely varied menu in a light filled setting, great wine list with attentive polite service. We enjoy our meals there whenever we go through Dundee. Oddly enough their fish and chips are excellent.

I often stop at the Dundee Bistro for dinner and sometimes also bring out of town guests here for lunch while wine tasting. The food is always delicious, and the wine list is excellent. The Bistro is owned and operated by the Ponzi family, and so of course it features Ponzi wines. But they have wins from all over the world (and of course, a particularly deep selection of Oregon wines). On nice summer days, you can sit outside on their patio, which is delightful.

Our server was friendly & efficient, the food was very good, butter leaf salad was fresh & perfect dressing. My compliant is that we each ordered a glass of wine, $13 per glass. Between the 2 glasses there was the equivalent of one glass of wine. The retail cost of the wine is $24.99 a bottle., so if 6 glasses from one bottle is that equals $78, that is good profit. Charge me what you need to charge for a glass but serve me a glass of wine....not a half glass! Will be back for the food but will not be ordering the wine.

The salmon special was great. The kale salad was very good. The beet salad is delicious as well as the hamburger and Ruben sandwich. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We are regulars at the Dundee Bistro and it’s usually one of our very favorites, always bringing friends from out of town there. Tris time I ordered the butter lettuce salad and though it looked beautiful, it tasted horrible. It was very salty and the “bacon” looked like it was out of a bag of Costco bacon bits with no bacon flavor at all, just salt. I think we’ll take a break and try some other options in the wine country for awhile. It made us very sad.

No better over-all quality location to let a day of wine tasting marinate while adding wonderful food. We started at the Ponzi tasting room, worked our way thru wineries, and topped it off at the Ponzi's Dundee Bistro for dinner.

Been here many times, not local but it’s still a favorite. Today my first impression was I was in an old service station. The bathroom appeared clean til I looked at the sink. You know the grey scum that builds up because no one really ever scrubs the sink...... strange to find that in a higher end place. Then saw the upholstery in the dining room. It was noticeably dirty too.
Service was good. After we ordered we heard screaming children from the kitchen area - turns out they were customers?- and two versions of music. One from the kitchen and one for the dining room. That was almost enough to loose my appetite. They did turn it down in the kitchen upon request. However the loud voices in the kitchen and bar area were never turned down. We were eating an early super but not the only people in the dining room and it felt like it was just prep time and the place should have been closed. No awareness of customers in the dining room even though they were preparing our food. Food was good, service was good. Management seemingly nonexistent.

We arrived for our reservation.
We were seated.
We waited 15 mins before anyone came to get us water
Other tables seated after us had water and even bread before we were seen.
My Rubens was what I'd expect from a gas station

Puttanesca had calamari instead of anchovies listed on menu and very little sauce, no chili, more black and green olives than capers. Service was slow on Tuesday. Large wheat tube pasta instead of linguine. Different but not an improvement over classic puttanesca.

Caesar salad with mushrooms and quinoa and bread crumbs instead of croutons, minimal garlic and whole white anchovies, again not an improvement over classic caesar. Romaine was a bit old, dark green and limp, prefer crispy young romaine leaves.
