Delicious Drinks/Small eats

Great, uniquely flavored drinks--expertly crafted. The food comes in small portions and is excellently flavored.

Holy Schnikes!! I haven't wrote a review for Izakaya Meiji!?!? What the heck is wrong with me!?!? I absolutely love Izakaya Meiji. This place is fantastic. Fun, Entertaining, Intimate, and so on. We've been here quite a few times. Our first experience was during the Whitaker Block Party. We were able to slide in here around 10pm for a table... More

Cool hipster fibe. Japanese influenced dishes. Everything was so fresh and absolutely delicious. When in Eugene we won't hesitate to eat here again.

The place is quaint with an extensive drink menu. If you're into whiskey than this is your place. The cocktails were delicious, I just had the French 75 which was terrific for the summer evening out with my girlfriend. I strongly recommend the Mussels, they were so delicious and the broth they were in was so good I had to... More

We love this place. Very eclectic menu with plenty for vegans to choose from. Tasty little russet potato and sesame oil number is easily in my top five appetizers ever. Teeny, dark bar feels like you are in a movie scene-so cool. Outside patio is super fun to hang out on with friends. We send our B and B guests... More

Went here with my son, daughter-in-law, and two year old granddaughter. All small plates on the menu. I had fried octopus which came with a dipping sauce, green beans, and salmon cooked in miso. Everything was great. The food comes out as soon as it's ready which was fast when we were there. They had some drinks which looked good.... More

I've dreamt of places this good and assuming I really was awake while there, I think this might be the rare place that lives up to the dream. It's a small-plate paradise, think Japanese tapas served up with a Pacific Northwest vibe. Glorious. Magical. One of the coolest little bar spaces I've ever encountered with ridiculously good drinks, too. Every... More

I had an onigiri and ginger patch. Boyfriend had the snails and chicken liver skewers (forgot his drink - Meiji Mule I think). Wish we didn't just have dinner before coming here. Will be back on our next visit to Oregon.

My friends and I had fancy cocktails at this place and they were amazing! Try the Pain Killer & Cobra Fang. Oh yeah the bartenders were super cool and nice to talk to.

Many options for vegetarians. Order alot of apps to share. Beautifully prepared but portions very small for the $. We walked to a bar and ate burgers after dropping $100 here on dinner for three.
