We waited for a special occasion.
My mother lives in McMinnville and it was my 53rd birthday as we had waited for a special occasion to try Nick's. we could.not have been more disappointed, The ravioli described with brown butter and sage had neither. My son's braised beef sauce pappardelle was I brodo rather than the sauce as described on the menu and tasted I his words "like hamburger helper". My pork "in the style osso bucco" was terribly under seasoned and the 'creamy" polenta seized up to firm due to a cool plate and there was no sauce but a wee bit of tasteless broth
The high points; the chicken liver mousse included with the salami antipasti plate was brilliant with a lovely balance of brandy and dried plums. The olive oil served w the house bakers bread was a delicious and the chocolate sauce on the final profiteroles was sublime.
Overall, we will not return. The high points cannot make up for the missteps here
