The Painted Lady
The service was excellent, though the wine list was supremely overpriced and several of the courses were underwhelming or under-seasoned. The spice cake dessert was too dry to eat but the basque cheesecake was lovely.
Nice restaurant and interesting food preparations for their tasting menu.
Most dishes hit the spot squarely on target. I was surprised that their wine menu was a bit overly pricey IMHO and with a $35/bottle corkage fee - it was still probably a better idea to bring your own special bottle if available. They seem to be trying to drive diners to the wine pairings, which we weren't up for after day drinking at numerous wineries in the days before and same day as our meal. A good special occasion restaurant in the Willamette region.
Delicious local ingredients , creatively combined and beautifully presented by knowledgeable and thoughtful wait staff.
Each course on the tasting menu was exceptional. Service was impeccable. Our only complaint is the markups on the wine list. We have dined in many 3 star Michelin restaurants and collected wine for almost 50 years so we are not novices.
Lovely 7 course tasting dinner and wine pairing. Creative menu with locally sourced products and several local wines. Amazing venue and awesome staff and service
Great food and service. Loved the tasting menu with wine pairing,
Top class experience, service, and staff. Innovative menu and fantastic value. Just go with the flow and enjoy.
This was such a unique experience. We truly enjoyed every element of our dinner and the service.
Great special occasion place to eat. Service and food were outstanding!
Our meal at the painted lady was phenomenal. The service was attentive and each dish we had was unique and well-composed. We especially enjoyed the wine pairings with each course and learned a lot about Oregon wine.
Overprocessed, bland junk food. The best part of the meal was the two slices of cheese that didn’t suffer from the kitchen’s touch.
I took four diners to The Painted Lady to celebrate my birthday, which was immediately acknowledged by the restaurant staff on our arrival. We were seated in the larger dining room in a section of a Victorian home. Our servers were warm and deeply versed in the food and wine offerings. We brought our own wine, which was opened for a corkage fee, after determining that neither bottle was on the menu. Fortunately, our vintages were not found, although other details were the same. All the dishes innovative and wonderful through a five course offering from the appetizers through the desserts. Highlights: tomato sorbet sprinkled with marinated basil seeds at the center of the appetizer, perfectly caramelized halibut, exquisitely tender wagyu beef. A great balance of foods and service made for a totally pleasurable dining experience and birthday celebration!
Amazing food and presentation - perfect cap on a day of wine tasting
Dinner had it's high points and low points so consistency was not apparent. The food was not consistently good. The halibut was overcooked and dry. The Wagyu beef was certainly not special as it was chewy and lacked flavor. Dessert spice cake was dry and unappealing. Most of the wine pairings were good but the port was not good quality. The highlight of dinner was the wonderful service by the waiter. The waiter's friendliness and astute service was a pleasure. I can understand many people's complaints concerning portion sizes as portion sizes are definitely small. I'm unlikely to eat dinner here again.
Everything was beautifully orchestrated- service, presentation, taste and texture contrasts. One of the best dining experiences ever!
This was an amazing dinner experience at the Painted Lady. The owners (husband/wife owners) and their staff were exceptional hosts. Every detail was carefully taken care of and the food was simply outstanding. My friends and I have dinner out quite often (we each live near a major city with dining options and travel extensively as well), but the food at the Painted Lady was amongst the best we have eaten.
We had a wonderful experience at the Painted Lady and would encourage everyone who is celebrating something special to go to the Painted Lady!
More flavors than I’ve ever had in one meal. All of them delicious. Impeccable service and lovely atmosphere. An absolutely wonderful food adventure.
Fresh menu, creative dishes, accommodating servers with great knowledge of the food, wine, and history of each dish and bottle.
This wonderful, intimate restaurant truly is gourmet at its highest level. It is my understanding that every evening is a tasting menu, and you have the option to have them pair the food with their recommended wine for each course. We chose to do the wine pairing, and the entire dinner experience was exceptional. I highly recommend this terrific little restaurant that is in a converted house from the mid-1800.
Amazing 8 course dinner!
What a fantastic experience this was. Went for my wife's birthday and it was exactly what we expected. Great spot to celebrate a special occasion. The only feedback I would give is that from pictures I've seen in other reviews and seeing it in person while we were there is that, there was no special birthday message/writing on the plates during the dessert course portion of our meal. Would have been a nice touch for my wife.
This is a tasting menu with generous portions. It's not the same every time, but we had 9 courses. Each course was unique and very creative. Everyone was friendly and attentive.
Just as good as it was 12 years ago. We went with five course menu with wine. Every course superb. Pricey but worth it once every few years.
We have been to the Painted Lady several times and it never disappoints. Amazing food and wine pairing dinner.
Food was great and the plating was creative. However at this price point the service should be warm, welcoming; the servers were slightly stoic. One was particularly abrupt. I won’t return.
Food was wonderful and service nicely paced for a tasting menu. Would have been 3x the cost in a major city.
Fantastic variety of foods with amazing wine pairings. The food was beautiful and colorful and service was spectacular!
Great food and wine pairings
The Painted Lady continues to impress. The service is excellent as is the food.
Excellent food and service
Most amazing dining experience. The food was so flavorful and the wine pairing was excellent.
Amazing! The best in Oregon!
Amazing meal at the Painted Lady… food, wine pairing, and service were all perfectly en pointe. Cannot rave enough…
Servers were incredible, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Food was outstanding. Wine pairing topped it all off. Incredible evening!
They played an eclectic mix of music as well. Al green to black pumas to Chris Stapleton. Some of my favorites!
A sublime experience. Only nine tables in an antique house, with eight courses, each of which afforded an explosion of flavor. Wine pairings a must-must-do!
Truly a spectacular experience. The thoughtfulness in the design, drinks, and menu coupled with flawless execution made this a night to remember.
Service and food were excellent.
As always, the service was outstanding and the food superb. The artistic presentations are awesome.
The chef truly delivers on an exceptional experience.
