Kenwood Restaurant used to be a charming spot with very creative cuisine. No more! Our lunch a few weeks ago was a big disappointment. I had reviewed the menu on line in advance so I was only a bit surprised. Unfortunately that day the housemade liverwurst sandwich was not available so I ordered the housemade hot dog with pretzel roll... More

I moved to OR several years ago, but came down for a two week vacation. I was SO excited to take my friends to Kenwood Restaurant - BUT alas, the original owners retired and there are new owners. The place has actually improved the patio area for more seats and around a water fountain, but the menu has changed drastically!... More

The Kenwood Restaurant was a terrible experience last night! Chicken undercooked ane red, grilled sardines nor grilled nor sardines ( two cold heerings), pasta hard and unedible, lamb broth without taste.... I could go on and on. Doubt there was a chef in the kitchen? The only good things were the company of friends and the wine we brought ourselves.... More

I shouldn't complain about the prices because we were treated by friends, but some of the servings were ridiculously small. For example, the "cheese plate" appetizer had a single small piece of cheese on it together with a few shreds of veggies. I would expect a cheese plate to have at least two different cheeses on it. My main dish,... More

The food was very good but somewhat expensive. The wine list was local and offered a decent selection. The service was timely without hovering. The new pond is lovely. The location and view is terrific. It is not the old place, but it is not bad. Good place to hang out on a lazy Friday afternoon.

Needed to do a birthday dinner for four. One person in the group suggested the Kenwood Restaurant and Bar. He had eaten there in the past and said that it was good for a special celebration. He didn't know that the restaurant had changed hands. No longer is it an upscale, white tablecloth, dinner restaurant. It's much more casual with... More

My husband & I had a long week and took a drive to wind down. Stopped at Kenwood for a drink & decide if we wanted to eat there since our last visit in November 2013 was not good. Asked the manager of we could sit outside, have a drink & look at a menu. She asked if we had... More

Thank you for visiting The Kenwood Restaurant & Bar (again) and for your review on TripAdvisor. I apologize if the server who greeted you misunderstood your interest or intent.

The food was very good, wine list is impressive, and breakfast in the morning luxurious to say the least. The restaurant was incredibly accommodating for in-room dining, and servers seemed happy to run back down for forgotten items. The servers are fantastic. However, whenever we called down to the restaurant, we got VM or the front desk. The person at... More

The new owners of what used to be a renowned dining institution seem to think that bowling-alley acoustics and telling you your beef was "ground just this morning" can replace reliably delicious, well-prepared food and ambiance. For many years this restaurant was a go-to spot to take VIP's, to celebrate special occasions, to know you and your guests would consistently... More
