I had not been here in several years and was surprised to see the restaurant had been moved in to the bar area. It is a very open area with tables scattered around the room. The room was cold and there were several very noisy groups at other tables that made the room extremely loud. The menu had a variety... More

When we first pulled up and found out it was in a hotel we thought "oh great, food probably won't be that good" but we were hungry and needed to eat so we came in. I got the Bistro Salad with Salmon and my husband got the Kobe Beef Burger (Bistro Burger). Both were high quality, superbly executed dishes! I... More

We tried this place a few months back and it was okay, nothing special, but slow service. We went back this past Sunday at 2 in the afternoon and stood for five minutes and were not seated, so we just left. They were not busy, and we were the only ones waiting. We will definitely not go back.

I was expecting more variety or higher end selection. Nothing extraordinary and not enough wait staff who were pleasant and working very hard to keep everyone happy.

I had dinner there on Labor Day evening after visiting the Oregon State Fair, and decided to try their local lamb entree, served over a port wine reduction in which were succulent sauteed veggies: grape tomatoes, bits of zucchini and small cocktail onions. I could have done without the onions (too sour after the sweetness of the tomatoes and blandness... More

Told the bar tender I would be back after sending some emails. Came back 22 minutes before Closing and the doors were locked! What type of hotel restaurant closes before it's time? And I just heard that they extended the hours, well this guy obviously didn't get the memo! 8/12/14 is tonight that I'm speaking of incase you the owner... More

Decent service and excellent food but a little bit expensive for what you get. Not a lot of people, and the ones that are there make the environment awkward. Would recommend the chicken and waffles, as well as the crab stuffed salmon (weekly fresh sheet options sounded good as well). Overall, go for the food, but don't expect the most... More

We took our son and daughter-in-law out for their anniversary dinner, made reservations, the room was almost empty and we got seated right in the middle of the room near the entry. The barren décor was not impressive. There must be a bar located right next to the dining floor separated by a curtain, as we had to listen to... More
