A beautiful Inn in the middle of Eugene, the Excelsior is a wonderful choice for a romantic dinner or a great place for a special evening with friends. The Inn has crisp white linens and candlelit tables in one part of the historic house, and a bistro and outdoor seating in another. The food is creative and flavorful. Boasting vegetables... More

This has been my go to restaurant for special occasions and get togethers since my college days in the wary 1980s. It still is elegant and informal, comfortable yet with excellent food. The outdoor patio dining was perfect for hot weather.

Excellent guitar duet on Friday night nice wine list, solid Italian cuisine for North America. Eugene offers very few places where there is a more refined atmosphere and this is one of them. Living in Italy half the year it's nice to come to a place like this and get my Italian on and then go back to eating quinoa... More

We were very disappointed with our dining experience here. Both the quality of the food and service were far below our expectations---especially considering the high prices. The descriptions of the menu items sounded more appealing than they actually were, at least based upon what we ordered. The filet mignon, $34, was somewhat smaller than usual, and while it tasted good,... More

Dining at the beautiful Excelsior Inn is an experience that should not be missed. The food is as good as it gets and the wait staff make sure your time is very enjoyable. I always look forward to going to the Excelsior and recommend it as one of the top restaurants in Eugene.

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.
