My son booked this restaurant for the night before his U of O graduation in June, 2014. I was very impressed with the food. I had looked up the menu online prior to visiting and it showed some very different and interesting cuisine. Once there, it was fabulous. I enjoyed the salmon which was wonderful. The rest of our group,... More

This is a truly and experimental laboratory. Restaurant was unique. Decorations eclectic. But the food and menu - wow! Had a "deconstructed Bouilliabase:. It was a crab and scallop cake served on rosemary bread with melted cheese and Remoulade sauce , with a tomato lobster dipping sauce. Flavors were amazing. Companion had a vegetarian "schnitnel and spatelse" made from eight... More

We decided to try something different so I found tons of reviews for this restaurant, and the menu looked so interesting and different. We had crab ragoons, they were homemade and delicious. I ordered the crab bisque it was very crabby and tasty. We tried grilled artichokes which was a first for us and it was very tasty. I ordered... More

We went here with a group of 10. Which meant we were able to try and see quite a bit off the menu. The pork tacos off the happy hour menu were great. 3 of the guys ordered these. The tacos had a lot of meat. My sister ordered the mac and cheese; but it was more like mac and... More

I had not even heard of this place, until my mom asked if I wanted to try it for a birthday dinner out. After looking into it, I though sure, let's try it. My dinner was delicious (horseradish crusted salmon) and my mom really liked her scallops. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Killer chocolate cake for dessert (shared --... More

It's a quirky restaurant, very Eugene in style and atmosphere, low key and friendly. The food is very good, and you could tell they use fresh local ingredients. Interesting combinations as well, we really like the kimchi sliders during happy hour. We had a great time tasting different menu items. Service was friendly, albeit slow at times. We'll be back.

I never would have known this place was here if not for friends suggesting it. Cosmos were wonderful. Bread was good - tho they need to slice it in smaller pieces - we ended up passing the 'hunk' of it around and tearing off pieces. The flavored butter was a nice touch. The scallops were delectable with a nice little... More

We had the mussels and roasted beet salad and they were excellent. The main course meals were also very good, only complaint was that the ribeye on special did not have any spices what so ever, but was tender and cooked just right.

We went here because we wanted some good food for a somewhat special occasion and were not disappointing. The mushroom cigars are divine, the burger was great. The sauces had the right amount of flavor and heat. The only feedback we would give is that any breaded item fell a little flat. The breading had no salt in it. The... More
