A friend and I ordered a selection of the small plates, and my life will never be the same. I did not know you could make brussel sprouts have the texture and variety the chef put into the dish. And I'm a brussel sprout fan. I *used* to think I made excellent bruessel sprouts, but, well, now I'm eating humble... More

We came with a large party to celebrate a once and lifetime occasion with anticipation of having memorable food, wine and service. I have to say it was memorable, we had none of the above and to top it off, it was overpriced!

Recently visited the Kenwood restaurant with a party of four. The restaurant was comfortable and not very busy. It looked like there was a nice patio for Summer lunches. We ordered drinks, and the bartender attempt at a classic cocktail was incredibly bad, it was sent back and the evening was off to a poor start. The soup that night... More

We had a very good lunch of inspired food but upon entering through the bar, the smell of cooking fuel was overwhelming and even in the dining room it was apparent. They really need to do something about it. Wish we had sat outside.

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
