I go here often to meet up with friends & family. Great side salad-- fresh, with multiple vegetables, if I want to eat light. Love the panko breaded prawns meal -- only $1.95 to add the side salad. Staff is very attentive. Good location just off I-84. Really nice atmosphere.

I was at the hotel for a seminar and dined here during the lunch break. Rough start. I was seated and then my drink and food orders were not taken for at least 10 minutes. Several people seated after me were helped before me. That was about the only hiccup. And in their defense, the restaurant was busily filling up... More

Had a business lunch and this place was suggested by the client. I didn't have high expectations for a place in NE especially since this clients "go to" is usually The Wooden Chicken. We had a good meal with a mix between lunch and breakfast entrées. Great service, clean with a nice atmosphere.

After driving in a big down pour heading to the airport we decided to get off the highway and get gas. We then noticed Francis Xavier's restaurant and decided to eat there. It is a family own and run restaurant which they seem proud of. There is a lounge on one side of the restaurant. It was about 5PM when... More

My sister suggested this restaurant as it was halfway between our houses. This restaurant is a 'hotel' restaurant but do not let that keep you away. The food was excellent, the wait staff very personable and efficient. I had the vegetarian skillet, very tasty. My husband had the pumpkin pancakes, good. My sister had the California omelet which looked very... More

The food was outstanding, good prices and a friendly staff. The giant burger was to die for. It was nice to be able to walk from the hotel to the restaurant.

Went here twice, very good food and the prices were comparable. However, I was a bit surprised to find that when you order the dinners, there was no soup or salad included. It was just meat and potatoes. We wanted dessert (we rarely ever get dessert), but when we asked for it, the waitress came back and said that 3... More

This is a restaurant that make a lot of effort but just doesn't quite get there. The food quality is that of a Denny's, and though the building is very nice, the food is not what we were looking for, Living in Portland allows us to have expansive choices that are extremely healthy and include a lot of organic, vegetarian,...

Yes, they do close at 9:00 and we felt the staff was ready to leave. I ordered sirloin medium and am afraid what medium rare would look like. They source farmed salmon and think that wild salmon is too expensive. We paid our bill and walked to the bar to finish our glass of wine without feeling rushed. Salad is... More
