As always, The Painted Lady was fabulous! The fall menu is outstanding—some perennial favorites along with new and delicious nods to the current season. The wine list is outstanding and the staff always provides excellent recommendations. The service is flawless as well. All in all, a perfect evening.

Odd place. Feels very serious inside and throughout the meal. Food is high quality and creative but servings are very small. We are very experienced with Prix Fixe dining and overall were a bit underwhelmed. Without some more personality from the staff, I don't see us returning here. If you like a quiet restaurant in an old house (but very nice) setting, definitely worth a try.

10 out of the 11 courses were excellent. The black cod dish seemed to miss the mark and was rather bland. servers were great about explaining ingredients and pairings w/ each course. The birthday chocolate treat was yummy.

Great service and food. Quaint ambience. Excellent progression of various tastes and culinary treasures. Loved the savory course served in a tea cup inspired by Japanese flavors like dashi with nuggets of creme fraiche, peas, and seaweed- awesome umami sensations from that one serving. Fabulous service, knowledgeable and friendly! Thank you for a great experience.

The Painted Lady is a truly beautiful restaurant with welcoming decor and staff. The ambiance is like dining in a private candle lit home and the menu is meant to showcase the region's seasonal ingredients and bounty. My dining companions and I had a very enjoyable evening here. The food was well prepared, seasoned and presented. The wine appropriate with the dishes enjoyed.

The night we visited there was a VERY loud 4 top that we swore were just trying to out-do each other for how loud they were! Other than that it was a great place albeit bit pretentious, but the service was spot on. They met our every need and had great personality and stories. Unfortunately taking a star off for the NY strip which was a bit chewy. Other than that the food was really good and the wine pairing was perfect.

The Painted Lady is a destination restaurant. We've dined there multiple times (whenever we're in Oregon) and it never fails to produce an unforgettable experience. The food is outstanding as is the attentive service and the outstanding wine list. On this visit, we tried the wine pairing for the first time and loved all the wines, some of which we'd not encountered before (foreign varietals). The cuisine is likewise creative and invariably delicious. I highly recommend making the trip to Newberg for special occasions or just a special evening out. The cost is relatively expensive although a good value if one believes in the maxim that "you get what you pay for" in life.

Painted Lady doesn't quite live up to its reputation. The tasting menu is $110 pp and by the time you add the wine flight ($90 pp) or a bottle of wine, you're over $300. For that, everything should be great. Basically, it's an 8-course tasting menu with many novel combinations, but, unfortunately, they all don't work. They're interesting but not great. The saddle of rabbit was 2 small bites, with a smear of something that is murky tasting that doesn't compliment the rabbit. The cod was the best taste. The fish was properly medium-rare and remarkably soft. The soup was an interesting mixture of various Japanese ingredients. The beet sorbet was novel, but not something you'd necessarily want again. The 24-day aged NY strip, a 2x2x2 inch piece, cooked medium rare, was very good, but not the greatest. The dinner took 2.5 hrs, and the many waiters and one waitress were very professional, but rather impersonal. We did notice there was a bit more interaction at other tables, but our wait staff were rather sterile. The restaurant is in a small house, and while it's classy, the room is not as nice as the nearby Jory, in the Allison. You definitely feel like dining at the Painted Lady is a special occasion, but don't expect the food to be quite on par with the best restaurants in Washington, DC, NYC, Napa, etc. All that said, we very much enjoyed the special diner in wine country and would recommend it.

We four friend celebrated birthdays at the Painted Lady. We splurged and took a Lyft from McMinnvile so that we could try the wine pairings. The tasting menu offered was just right, beautifully presented and interesting. We loved the food and the wines were outstanding. Our waiter gave a detailed description of each wine which added so much to our enjoyment.
We were thrilled with the birthday wishes written in chocolate on out dessert plates, and we each received a gift box with a lovely candy to take home! Great spot for a special occasion!

This was the first time my brother and sister in law and I had ever had a chance to have a nice meal together without kids parents etc and just talk as friends. And we had a really good time. The service was seamless. We were having such a good time talking about the old days we might have been the noisy group. But overall the place is very quiet and subdued.

The tasting menu goes on forever. One surprise after another. Creative and beautiful. Local flavors from local sources. Blackberries and filberts and mushrooms and even goat cheese which is new since my childhood in this area.

The wine list is international and impressive but here I would recommend adding a few more local varieties. I come back home to try the local wines and I favor them even in my distant home and travels. I expect to see more of them when I'm here.

I remember Newberg when it was dry. You had to buy your beer from a guy parked on the side of the road outside the city limits. The city has grown up and the PAINTED LADY is an elegant sign of how far it has come. I'll be back on my next trip home.
