This is a very nice upscale restaurant with outstanding service. While the dishes are very good and in several cases quite creative. The wine parings are pretty good abut not what i would call outstanding. Frankly, for about $500 out the door with tasting menu, wine parings and tip I think it is overpriced. The house, service and general ambience are on the other hand - wonderful

My husband and I enjoyed our belated anniversary combined with my birthday celebration last weekend. Our experience at The Painted Lady was nothing short of amazing! Each dish was like a piece of art. We enjoyed 7 different courses, each one more beautiful in presentation than the last. And the taste...simply mind-blowing! So good! So delicious! The wait staff were incredibly professional and also very approachable and kind when we asked our "silly" questions about an ingredient or preparation. All in all, this will be a meal which we will never forget. From beginning to end, we were thrilled with our experience at The Painted Lady.

We brought our magnifying glass because we have problems reading menus in dark places, but we didn't expect to use the magnifying glass to see the SMALL portions on the plates. The Tasting Menu was over-priced, small portions, and did not have any delicious tastes that we can recall. This restaurant needs to get over itself, get a Chef who can make your taste buds explode for the prices they charge; and, at least, have an entree that is substantially larger compared to all the tiny portion plates that come before it. We didn't expect large portions since it was about 8 courses, but really, at the end of the night, we were disappointed. The only thing we can recall is the Miso Custard (soup), that was tasty, but it was served
tepid. I would have liked it better warm/hot. The wine list was over-priced also. We will not return, nor
will we recommend this to family, friends, or business associates. A huge disappointment .

Warmly welcomed and promptly seated.
The staff will contact guests and confirm any dietary restrictions ahead of time, and the chef will adjust the menu to accommodate accordingly.
As I had none, I enjoyed the 8 course prix fixe menu with wine pairing and coffee.
The fall inspired menu was exceptional, building from the canapés through the gentle and well conceived opening starter and seafood courses, to a peak in the spinach tagliatelle with quail followed by lamb two ways.
The Chef’s signature Miso custard is worth the trip to Newberg alone!
I opted for the white truffle add to the pasta, which was worth every penny!
The beet sorbet intermezzo was spectacular, followed by cheese and dessert!
The wine pairings were near perfect throughout!!

The sweet Surprise compliments of the Chef completed the evening, while complimenting the pleasant coffee!

The staff and level of service was exemplary!

I’ll be back!

We chose this as it had been recommended as a great dining experience. We had a very nice time, but not sure the food was worth the $110 price, the wine pairings at $90 was a great add though. Great to try 8 different wines/formats, you would never get that with just a bottle of wine. Overall vibe was a little too stuffy for us, but it was a unique dining experience. Even though the portions were small, with the wines we were stuffed before dessert... (took dessert home). While it is great to say we have tried it, we likely won't be back - too many other great places to try in the area at less cost.

The service was outstanding and the tasting menu delicious, with the chef making some alterations due to allergies some of us have. The wine chosen to go with each tasting item paired beautifully and we appreciated the explanations about the wine. Although portions are appropriately small, at the end of 9 courses one is pleasantly full not overstuffed. We went to celebrate two birthdays, and will be back again. Expensive, but price is justified for a special celebration.

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.

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.
