Food was excellent but service was average (make sure to ask for rolls!) possibly because it was Valentines Day. My wife ordered the filet and I ordered the double cut pork chop. Both were cooked to perfection and the grilled asparagus that came with both was very good as well. I also ordered the romaine salad which could have easily been shared between the two of us. The double chocolate cake with raspberry was not worth the $10 as the slice could have been called a sliver.
This restaurant offers a nice atmosphere , great food and drinks and the service was perfect. Well worth the drive from Portland.
Meal was great our server just kind of forgot about us. Acted as if she had done services she had not and long periods between checking up on our table.
Frendly staff, quiet environment, favorite place for Valentine's Day
Good food, well-prepared. Attentive service, inventive preparations. For a local strip mall restaurant the prices tend on the higher side of the competition. Bar prices, except for a mediocre selection of Happy Hour cocktails, beer, and wine are pushing the limit of affordability. It is a restaurant Id return to, but I might give second thoughts to $12-$15 cocktails made with premium liquors but in ordinary preparations.
Great food. Excellent service. Was celebrating a milestone birthday and they were very accommodating.
Enjoyed a very pleasant birthday dinner. Appetizers of steamed clams and bacon wrapped prawns were delicious. All entrees- Korean ribs, fried chicken, and scallops were all well prepared. Service was excellent.
Worth the drive. My wife and I make the drive from West Linn to Portland several times a month to partake in great dining experiences. I would suggest that Portland residents consider taking a drive to West Linn to try 503. Great food, well trained and knowledgeable staff and reasonable pricing. We have tried everything on the menu and would do be hard pressed to pick a favorite. The grilled romaine salad is a great starter, the hanger steak is awesome, even something as simple as shredded pork/black bean combo is worth the drive. Jeffery, the bartender is pleasant and provides just the right level of service and friendly banter. Good wine selection ($18 corkage if you bring your own).
What a terrific evening at 503. The service was outstanding! The food, fresh, seasonal and savory. If you want a quiet place where you can have conversation and great food, come to 503 in West Linn. Thank you
Very good food and excellent service. They always have interesting specials. Great desserts and excellent wine selection. They have never disappointed.
The food was very good except the steak, which was very tough. The rest of the meal was very good. I believe the cooking mid-step of the steak would not keep me from eating here again but I would stick to the seafood. For the price of the steak I think they should use a smaller portion of better quality. It was cooked properly, which is good and the rest of the meal was delicious.
Amazing food. Great little place and great service
Food was good and affordable. Good local cocktails. Friday night and basically closed at 10:00 pm. woulf have stayed longer and spent more if they didn't close. Good restaurant overall.
Five-Oh-Three is our go to local place when we don't want to travel downtown. Good choices and well prepared food with an extensive list of wines for pairings.
A couple of knocks on an otherwise very nice place; it took a really look time for us to get our food. We were near the last seating of Christmas Eve, but it did take a really long time. Then, my son ordered lamb. We are not very experienced ordering lamb in a restaurant; but the lamb was not pink but red, and had the sort of sheen that extremely rare/uncooked beef can have. That may be what cooked lamb is supposed to look like but it didn't seem well-cooked to us. They did offer us a complimentary dessert with this; which again, took a pretty long time to arrive. This is what detracetd from an otherwise very nice experience.
Food was great but the amount of meat they give per dish is so small- smallest I've ever had out. We ordered the lamb , hangar steak and clams. They fill the plates with fries or veggies but we left hungry
We had a late p.m. reservation for a group of 8 after a theater event. They didn't rush us. Food was excellent, good wine list.Our server was helpful, friendly, patient with an elder in our group. We'll go there again and promise not to make it so late. Thanks for accommodating us.
We love this classy little restaurant! The Manhattan cocktail was perfection. Our flatbread app, salads, and mains were well prepared and delicious. If you're lucky to get Jeff, trust him. He'll take good care of you.
Another excellent meal in this comfortable, low key place. Petrale was excellent as was appetizer and dessert. My only complaint was the green beans were woefully undercooked -- nearly raw. Otherwise a stellar effort. Definitely recommend.
We very much enjoyed our dinner at Five-0-Three. They had a well priced wine list and tasty starters. Our favorite meal was the crusted sole, but all were delicious.
