Yeah, it's in a strip mall, but 503 has given West Linn-ers a casual place to eat well conceived dishes, using locally sourced ingredients. Great bar. Outdoor seating in the summer.

This is our 3rd or 4th time dining at 503. This restaurant never fails to impress. Small, seasonal menu that is always well done. We highly recommend 503.

Service was outstanding. They made you feel welcome and your business appreciated. However, the happy-hour menu is my favorite selection. Looking forward to some warm evenings so I can be seated outside, especially on a Saturday when there is entertainment.
Bring a happy attitude and some good friends and you will have a delightful evening.

We were seated in a booth, but for four adults it was a very snug fit. The noise level was too high to visit with our friends who sat across the table from us. Maybe the noise level was normal for a Friday night. I may try the restaurant again, but would ask for a table if there is a next time.

Jeff and Lynette have always taken excellent care of us! The food quality, overall, is fine. What is NOT fine is that my fresh, marvelous Petiole Sole was salted to within an inch of its-and my-life!! I was barely able to taste the actual fish, let alone anything else on the plate-dessert included (which was also overly salty).

Please, whoever is cooking, salt is a spice-NOT a food group!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
