The service was good - all the wait staff were friendly and helpful. I really liked how the chef came out to present and explain the dishes. The escargot was super as well as everything else. We both had trout. The portion sizes were perfect.

A Michelin starred level experience. Let’s just say Recipe is remarkable. The food is creative without being ridiculous and the execution from the kitchen is flawless. If you believe the mark of a true master chef is the ability to cook a chicken, order it at Recipe and experience culinary genius.

This was far from our first time visiting Recipe, and our high expectations were fully met.
Chef Paul clearly pays scrupulous attention to both ingredients and preparation, and
the results show on the plates. Both the starters and the main courses were memorable
culinary experiences. Recipe remains our favorite Newberg spot.

Our server was awesome, very personable and had good suggestions but I remember now why we stopped going to Recipe. The food may be priced based on its quality, but the portion sizes are tiny. I got a wagyu steak for 31.00, it was 6 small bites and I was done. The Cavatappi (spelling?) pasta was fresh, someone took their time making and rolling those, and the Parmesan broth was fantastic but it was a small bowl of pasta and broth for 22.00??? If I hadn't ordered dessert, I would've left there hungry. I'm sorry Recipe. I congratulate your rise from the ashes (literally) but unless the portion sizes change or the cost drops, we won't be back. P.S. Bring back Diet Coke.

The service was excellent, though a couple of the servers were fairly new and inexperienced, which is to be expected with any new employees. Service staff was attentive but didn't feel like they were "lurking". I thought the entrees were well thought out and the beef filet was perfectly cooked. Excellent wine selection also, I will be coming back again.

This is probably one of the nicest restaurants we've been to since moving to Sherwood, Oregon. The house is beautifully done, and the small menu offers enough variety without being huge. We appreciated the chef coming out on multiple occasions to bring dishes out. Our waiter actually apologized as we left that he was a little short, which he was. The price point was on par with the quality of the dishes. Their pommes frites looked amazing, I'd love to see a steak-frites with them, I'd go all the time!

We ate dinner on Valentines day so the place was full. Inspite of the full house service was excellent. She had a cocktail that she described as one of the best... Meletti based and whipped. We shared appetizers and salad. The wild boar terrine was perfectly spiced to accent the balance of fat and meat. Delicious balance of tangy-pork and pepper. The large green winter salad was more than enough for two and the balance of bitter and mild greens accented by the light oil and vinaigrette. Her entree of seared scallops while delicious was pedestrian in flavor. Basic bay scallops while cooked perfectly lacked imagination of a complimentary sauce. My spaghetti and meatballs were divine. The three meatballs of wild boar were complemented by a superb fresh tomato based sauce... that while just slightly sweet embodied the full fresh tomato flavor... Topped with spaghetti squash.

This was our second time back at the original location after they reopened. They continue to step up their game as a top Newberg restaurant. I enjoyed the trout while my husband had the duck special and praised it highly. Our companions shared the trout and the beef and also loved it. We shared several desserts, all yummy. I had some trout skin to take home to my dogs, and one of the desserts leftovers went home with our friends. The servers kept our to-go bags elsewhere so they wouldn't clutter our table until we were ready to go. A class Act!

We truly love the Recipe and the newly remodeled dining experience. The service is outstanding! The dining room was quite noisy this time as there was a large group celebrating a birthday. The food choices are excellent and delicious. The portions are a little small for the price. Overall we are thrilled to have this restaurant in our neighborhood!

Great day that Started with a library tasting at Torii Mor. Followed by tastings at Chehalem, Et Fillle, Artisan and Bravero. Bought what we liked and then had dinner at Recipe. Such a good meal and excellent service. The steak was perfect and desert was too. Perfect topper for a great day.

The service was impeccable and the staff friendly. The food was delicious but limited, I thought. Our son ordered the salmon, which was one of the most expensive dishes on the menu and the piece of salmon he got was incredibly SMALL! I don't think it was much bigger than 1" x 1" x 4". He ate it in about four bites! It was well-prepared but hardly worth the $33 price. I was excited to try the restaurant after finding out it had reopened after the fire. However, I found it dark and austere and rather chilly in atmosphere, at least upstairs, where we were seated. Maybe it's cozier downstairs? Just didn't see many traces of the lovely old Victorian building. Other than maybe dropping in for lunch or coffee with friends, i don't think I will consider going there again. For the cost of the dinner for the four of us, I don't think it was worth it.

I really wanted to praise this restaurant. But sadly it's a bistro that thinks it is fine dining establishment. The soup of the day was swapped out by 6:30. The staff didn't seem to know how to proceed with any promoted upcoming events. The menu was nothing that hasn't been seen on the food scene over the last 20 years but is priced as though it thinks it is a cuisine innovator. Soggy crisp dessert offering and cold coffee. (Not to mention a highly pretentious wine list) Perhaps mine was simply the table of the evening where things didn't go well. I'll try it once more but it must improve.

Newly remodeled venue which is very tastefully done. Great service and Broad choices for entrees and calamari was best ever! I had a seafood stew and guest had salmon and both of us loved our meal. I’ve heard pork tenderloin and beef for 2 was outstanding as well. Very good house wine and they were open to sharing the large soup without additional charges. We will be back!

What a wonderful dining experience! Service was great- attentive, but not hovering. We chose the duck pate appetizer- wonderful presentation- served with thin walnut bread crostini, prunes, and a frisée salad. Mouth watering to say the least. I had the Wagu tenderloin with Demi glaze, and baby bok Choy. Cooked to a perfect medium rare. My husband chose the pork tenderloin which was wonderful as well. We split a side of polenta- with fried sage and cheese. We’ll be back!!!
