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

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.

Breakfast was... More
