I always look forward to the opportunity to visit this restaurant. Staff are very pleasant and efficient.
Since we had tickets to Les Miserables by the CYT group on Mt. Helix, we opted to dine first at the Brigantine. We were not disappointed. It was a pleasant evening and we were ushered to one of the patio areas off the foyer. Our waiter, Rodrigo, was a professional; quick, courteous, johnny on the spot but not obtrusive.
He took our drinks order while we perused the menu and we were ready to order our dinners by the time he delivered. We ordered two appetizers and I ordered the large prime rib. It was done a little more than what I prefer but it was still excellent. And it was large enough that I shared it with my ravenous son-in-law, who ate his meal, part of my daughter's meal and then part of mine. So the food is good!
We ordered a bottle of Erath Pinot Noir from Dundee, OR in the Willamette Valley - probably the best Pinot Noir growing area in the world. It was as expected. Yummy!
The bill came to $240 dollars for the four of us, and I added a $48 tip for Rodrigo. So not particularly inexpensive but you can save $67 without the booze - basically a $43 dinner for each without the tip. So it is good value.
I recommend the Brigantine for a pleasant dining experience.
