Lovely atmosphere, attentive waiter, excellent food and martinis, and a fine wine list. My companion and I both had steaks, which were prepared to perfection, accompanied by a Super Tuscan which was recommended to us by the very knowledgeable waiter.

Just left from a three night stay. What most impressed us? Definitely, the service at breakfast. Jett is remarkably organized, and took the time to have a map printed of lighthouse lookout on coast for us; simply because he knew we were first time Oregon visitors. His recommendation was spot-on. The quality of breakfast food was fantastic. We tried five... More

Excellent quality food, organic ingredients, authentic recipes because of Italian owner, very friendly and genuine service. Beautiful outdoor patio setting or romantic indoor space. Delicious dessert selection.

The Excelsior is in a beautiful building downtown. It has an old-school restaurant feel and vibe, complete with white tablecloths. Our server was attentive when at our table, he just wasn't there quite often enough. The food was spotty at best. The soup of the day was Ribollita. The beans were dreadfully undercooked to the point that they practically crunched... More

Had dinner reservation for dining room waitress tried to seat us in bar (restaurant was pretty empty). Wine vintage did not match what was on menu (younger vintage). Food was good.

We stayed at the Inn and just by looking at the restaurant we could sense that this restaurant cares for good food, and we were not disappointed. We chose to sit outside in the lovely garden on this warm evening. We had the soup of the day, rabbit and pacific salmon, and both the soup and the mains tasted well.... More

Had Thanksgiving dinner there, and it was lovely and full of healthy choices. I made an early reservation, but they gave us a poor little table in a crowded corner, which they corrected when I complained. Don't shove two women in a corner! Despite this, I will go back again for great, honest food without pretension.

great service, food and wine - reasonable prices. The pizza is great and so is the bread. I suggest eating in the bar - great atmosphere - comfortable

I meet my girlfriends here for lunch. It is always a fun place to go, and the food is amazing. I understand dinners are just a good or better too.
