We went with a group of friends this past Sunday for brunch. Service was slow and haphazard. It appeared that they didn't have a chef on duty but used a short-order cook. I ordered an omelette. It was merely folded scrambled eggs. Scrambling eggs in an omelette pan and then folding it over a piece of cheese does not make... More

The new portion of the restaurant are now open but it is a very (cold) feel while dining!!! The service was ok and the food was quite good. I don't think we will be returning because of the atmosphere, which is really too bad.

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 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
