The Painted Lady
We went for our 50th wedding anniversary dinner. In addition to outstanding food and service, the restaurant received and displayed roses sent by my husband on a special flower stand at our table. When dinner was over, the host emptied the vase and wrapped the flowers for our journey home. Every attendant wished us "happy anniversary", and took time to chat with us in addition to attentive serving. The chef prepared a special anniversary dessert treat. The elegance of the food, the comfort of the surroundings, and the personal service made our special evening even more so. A memorable evening.
Came here for our wedding anniversary. It was one of the best meals I have ever had! I am so glad that we went and experienced this amazing place. The service was excellent as well as the food. It was more than enough of a meal contrary to some that complain that there isn't enough. Slow down, take small bite, and enjoy the flavors, It is an experience like nothing else. Everything I ate, each course, was spectacular. You must go once in your life. The price is high, nearly $400 for two of us including our wine, but it was worth every penny! If there is anything making you hold off on going, disregard. You will not be disappointed.
This was our first time and we loved the entire experience. We chose to include the Wine Pairing (and would strongly recommend this option to others). Every one of the eight courses was a joy to experience. Absolutely a high-end experience that we will do again.
Very quaint and intimate setting. Service was robotic, lacking the personal interaction and warmth that we are accustomed to in the Southeast US (Charleston). In spite of the requisite 8 course dinner that drew out service - it was over 2 hours - we felt rushed, with plates being whisked way the minute we finished the course.
The courses were inconsistent....some were outstanding with prep creativity highlighting ingredients perfectly (tomato salad, miso soup, halibut); others were good but with the ingredients or the creativity in disconnect (Gnocchi, Wagyu Beef) . The desserts were just ok, the weak link even though they seemed to be the easiest to execute. With some dishes, I think that the chef was trying to do "too much"....too weird, too fancy, too hip, too diverse. Go to a 5 or 6 course menu and focus on creative excellence that obviously exists in the kitchen, that's my recommendation. Do them all well and you can still command the same royal price. And get a wait staff that actually makes your customers feel like they are special, welcoming and interested in the diner. I think this is close to a top shelf restaurant but still has work to do.
Very special dinner - not one complaint
Service was outstanding and food was the best I have had at a restaurant in Oregon.
Highly recommend and we will be back
Was all that I expected and more!
Little on the pricey side but awesome food and amazing service.
Truly enjoyed our tasting adventure at The Painted Lady. Understand the meal is pricey and you should absolutely spring for the wine pairings, but a great dining experience. Only possible critiques were that they served each course quickly, granted it was a still two hours, but did feel a slight sense of urgency to the evening vs. being relaxing. Also didn't love the first two courses, but the rest were phenomenal. A must do splurge night while in Newberg.
Great as usual
We had a great time. The food was spectacular, and the air conditioning was very nice on a very warm day. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine pairings being served, and the house is very charming. They made my birthday very special. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion!
Every coarse was executed perfectly. The food was explained thoroughly and tasted amazing! The wine pairing a bit pricey.
The food was amazing and the chef went above and beyond to accommodate allergy issues for one of our party. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful, particularly when it came to the wine list. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion.
Simply outstanding! While I normally eschew tasting menus, this eight course meal was outstanding
in every sense. The wine list was extensive but the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful in picking the
right wine for our meal. You may also opt for a wine pairing with your meal. We were told that one or two items on the menu change nightly so I will not go into the specifics of our meal but I will say that
at the end of the night I did not feel over fed. The entire meal covered two hours with the individual courses arriving in a timely manner. The service was efficient so don't expect a lot of conversation. The staff was busy seeing that every table got the same level of attention.
This is the only four star restaurant in the valley and I can see why. I highly recommend Painted Lady.
This is the French Laundry of Willamette Valley.
Birthday’s and anniversary
Amazing service but even better food. The best food experience we have ever had!
Excellent as always! Fourth time here in that past ten years. The Painted Lady has done a great job staying on top of their game. Fantastic tasting menu highlighting the season with flawless execution. Superb service by a warm and knowledgeable staff.
We went to enjoy this experience on our third wedding anniversary and it was the best decision! Every course was perfect, intricate, and delectable. The wine pairing was definitely a must and the service was friendly, professional, and knowledgable. Definitely a treat we will never forget. Thanks for making such a memorable night for us, Painted Lady!
Best meal I have ever had in Oregon. Outstanding from service to food and wonderfully paced meal. A must visit for anyone that wants to be pampered and wowed.
Outstanding food and wine pairing in a very relaxed environment
The Painted Lady never disappoints!! The staff is amazing...so knowledgeable and truly invested in making the experience a memorable one.
Our dinner last Wednesday was FLAWLESS, and I don’t use the word lightly!
The building was very quaint, lots of different rooms, like an old farm house. The service was spot on but maybe a little over the top. The waiter knew his food and his wine without a doubt. Expect to be treated very formal and proper. They are very serious. We had the 8 course with the wine pairing. The food was impeccable, delicious, outstanding. The wine was okay. I wouldn't do the wine pairing again. $90 was quite ridiculous for the very small pours. I would suggest to bring your own bottle for a corkage fee. The ambience was really nice, great music, not too loud or too quiet. I would go again but expect to drop $300-$400 plus tip.
I have been to the Painted Lady many times for a special event although it has been several years since the last time I have gone. A lot of things have changed and not for the better. The service and atmosphere are still excellent, but the portions of the food have shrunk to almost nothing and the cost has increased. I would like to say the food still tasted amazing but to be honest the portions were more like bites for each course which made it hard to have enough food to even taste. At $110 per person I expect to be fed. I walked away after 8 courses completely hungry. That is not okay. I have been to many fine dining establishments and this is the first with this experience. I will not be going back after being a loyal customer for years. That is unfortunate.
We went to the Painted Lady expecting to order off a menu. We were surprised that the menu is fixed price, but we never considered leaving. The food courses were tasty, innovative, beautifully plated, and each course complemented what came before. The wait staff explained the construction of each course, and there were surprises both before (canapes) and after the entire menu was delivered. The whole experience was enjoyable, and we got several ideas about duplicating some of the courses. We would definitely return.
I convinced 6 friends to go to dinner with me for my birthday. We were ready for the dining experience we knew was awaiting us. TPL did not disappoint. All the joyful chatter and then a course arrives and we sniff, taste and yum.
We were visiting Willamette Valley for three days and had dinner here twice! We loved everything about our experience
Beautiful restaurant in charming home. Waiter outstanding. Excellent meal with eight courses that were each a delicious work of art and cuisine. Interesting wine pairings. A special evening. Quite expensive. Only recommendation is that dining chairs were not comfortable.
Top notch food measured against any region. Definitely included one of the best bites on our list for 2019.
Such a fun evening and they completely catered to my allergies! What a great experience!
We did tasting menu with wine pairing and our taste buds got a workout! Outstanding food, wine and service. Can’t wait to get back!
fabulous, creative dishes that expressed the quality of the ingredients as well as the skill of the kitchen.
The eleven course tasting menu was fantastic and highly recommended with the wine pairing. The smoked oyster mushrooms were amazing. Also outstanding was the miso custard with dungeness crab, the halibut and the tagliatelle with morels. Service was excellent with detailed explanations of each dish and the wine pairing. If you are looking for an amazing dining experience in the area this is the place!
Our waitress was so attentive and made sure that all of our food allergies were addressed. The courses were prepared so well. I happily ate everything that was served, even all the seafood (which is unusual for me to be able to do)! The wine pairing piece was amazing and I loved our experience!
Fabulous Prix Fixe menu with excellent preparations that were imaginative, but not too precious. The wine flight was top notch … I have tracked down and purchased several of the wine flight offerings, I don't normally find wine flights accompanying meals to be of that quality.
The Painted Lady was everything I had heard / read about! Very elegant / warm from the moment we entered the restaurant. Similar to the French Laundry in NAPA. Small plates with outstanding tastes and service! Plan on going back soon!
Fabulous! If in doubt, just go. Go!!
Just a wonderful experience from start to finish! From the gracious greeting upon arrival to the meticulous & warm service throughout the meal, The Painted Lady is deserving of every accolade. The vibrant flavors of each ingredient coupled with the unique dishes keeps your attention and taste buds tantalized the entire time. A special night for us to celebrate and this restaurant could not have been more perfect.
The food was "ok"....very impressed with itself, I fully understand "fine dining" and set menues, BUT, I've had much better at half the price....
