The food is great and if you go on their web site you will find special dinners that feature one particular region of Italy. I don't know how often those dinners occur, but I do know reservations fill up quickly so book early. I've eaten here for lunch on the patio and dinner inside the restaurant. The restaurant has a...

This lovely Inn & restaurant were formerly a sorority house built in 1912. 102 years later it is a wonderful restaurant and inn. We only experienced the restaurant and had wonderful meals with service that could not have been more friendly and efficient.

If you weren't told about it ahead of time, you'd probably never encounter the Excelsior Inn and Café on east 13th Avenue just west of the University of Oregon. It is a great place to visit while in Eugene, either for a meal or for lodging near the U of O. This is about as good as it gets in... More

The service is a bit spotty but staff are friendly. I have been here a few times for both lunch and dinner and liked everything I ordered. They have a daily fish special that is always good. Try to come in the summer when you can enjoy the lovely patio.

Delicious Italian food from chef's garden, knowledgeable and professional staff, great wine, romantic garden setting. The indoor restaurant was equally attractive. Could not have been happier.

I had breakfast here after staying at the Excelsior Inn. I had the daily special of an omelette, which was perfectly prepared. The toast was homemade bread, and was awesome. Paired with their homemade seasonal preserves (pear ginger?), I could have eaten a ton of that bread!

Great place for our 25th wedding anniversary. We love this place in the past and still loving it. Excellent wine list. The servers are falling over you they are so good. Husband had a yummy fish dish and I had rabbit. Desserts to die for. Save your money and splurge on a romantic evening. Park across the street in the... More

I have eaten here many times over the years, actually since it was only half the size and was pretty much an expresso bar plus amazing food. If I were asked to name one restaurant that I could recommend in Eugene, it would be the Excelsior. The salad nicoise, the steaks, a number of trout dishes were among the best... More

Having come to Eugene recently for the marathon, I had to come here mainly for nostalgia purposes. I was so happy to see it hadn't changed much. I was a student at Univ. of Oregon in the mid 70's and when we had a little extra $$ we would treat ourselves to the Excelsior. Coming back to Eugene was very... More
