The Italian menu is always unique, meals are prepared beautifully always with unique flair. Many local ingredients are sourced locally.

Prices are a bit high, but so... More

I can't comment on prices because I didn't pay. But the quality was uniformly excellent. The mozzarella, beets and carrots combination on the starter was great and the filet mignon was simply perfect. Attentive but not intrusive service and a great atmosphere. If I lived in Eugene, I'd be back!

The Excelsior Inn is a verrry fine dining establishment. The meals are of the utmost quality and they get many of their ingredients locally, which is an absolute plus. The meals are on the expensive side but if you're going here, than that is to be expected. The atmosphere is very romantic and would classify as a higher end dining... More

By far this is the finest restaurant in Eugene, both in terms of service, food and atmosphere (in the main dining room not the bistro side). Prices are fine dining range of $25-35 for main courses and 10-20 for most appetizers although a few are less. Probably the most expensive place I have found in Eugene so far. But I... More

The dinner was a gift from my sister and of course that made it even more special. We ate early because we were going to a play- the atmosphere is amazing and comfortable. The wait staff were attentive and offered great suggestions for sides, wine and desserts. I knew I was having lamb, this restaurant is known for the superb... More

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary at the Excelsior, and we were very happy with all aspects of the restaurant. The table was nice, by the window. We brought our own bottle of wine ($15 corkage fee) and the stemware was very nice and held up to a very good bottle of wine. Jed was... More

Finally got to the Excelsior Inn for dinner, why did I wait so long??? It is the best place I've eaten in Oregon. I started with one of their creative cocktails and happily, of my party of 3, in my opinion, mine was the best, although the others were well executed. My dinner partners tried their white bean soup which... More

My wife and I are new to Eugene and we heard about this restaurant. We decided to try it and were not disappointed at all! The staff was very attentive, the food was excellent and the ambience was classy. Definitely a keeper.

Just imagine: A restaurant with long white table cloths, linen napkins, crystal stemware, proper silverware, tables nicely spaced, no banquette seating, great service, and wonderful food! But you do not have to imagine it because it is all there in the restaurant in the Excelsior. A small boutique hotel in Eugene, very near the University campus, the Excelsior is a... More

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...
