I was a bit skeptical about finding a good restaurant in Yachats, given COVID complications of supply chain issues. We had a short delay getting seated, despite their being not real busy, but once we were seated the service was quick and good. I ordered...a seafood pasta, mostly because it included a saffron sauce. The serving size was substantial and all the components were excellently prepared. It is a bit expensive, but the quality of the food, especially in a seaside getaway area, is worth it.More

Ordered mac & cheese with crab. Server brought odd-tasting crab in a bowl AFTER my partner nearly finished his mac & cheese. Tuna, clearly NOT sushi grade, was merely seared on the outside: not RARE as described, but RAW, tough, & inedible. Clam starter? weak...broth, only six cherry tomatoes, scant amount of broth that tasted smokey. Bread? Underdone, doughy in the middle. Crab cakes would be better with slaw instead of a heap of overpowering, pickled red onion. Next night, we ordered two BOWLS of clam chowder to go. Very small portions (a bowl is typically 12 ounces, not 8! -- overpriced & served in SINGLE USE PLASTIC CONTAINERS (there are paper/cardboard options). The chowder came with SINGLE USE PLASTIC spoons-- staff needs to learn to ASK if customers NEED utensils. The chowder did not have a single clam! Not one clam. The staff is terrific. The food? Not even mediocre. We will not return. & we will spread the word about the low quality food. Raw bread? Forget the seafood? Egads. Never again.More

Excellent service with Tara! She attentive and informative and made our evening very memorable. The mushroom pate appetizer was amazing as well as the Mixed Seagood Grill! Chef/owner has a winner here. Can’t wait to return again soon !

Really enjoyed sharing our Anniversary with 13 friends. They gave us the back room, and even though they were crowded and the back room could have accommodated another table or two, they kept it private for us. Loved our quirky waitress and all the food...came as ordered and on time. Everyone enjoyed their wide selection of seafood as well as non-seafood dishes. Calamari appetizer was spicy and awesome! Would come again.More

Lovely place to eat with a nice view of the river, food was excellent, the service was good although our waitress had too many tables to serve. We have recommended this place to several people already.

The food and service were just great. Loved the creative menu and both dishes we had were great. It was so nice to find something like this restaurant in such a small place. Well worth stopping if you driving through or staying in the area.

We recently dined at Ona 3 times during our stay in Yachats. The environment is warm and friendly. The wait staff is outstanding. The menu is very creative. All our meals were outstanding. I would highly recommend Ona to anyone traveling down the Oregon coast.

We had a fabulous dinner with impeccable service and beautiful decor. Andrea, (our bartender/server, who may or may not be Christopher Walken’s daughter!🤣) was positively entertaining. The crab cake appetizer was pure crab, little filler and perfectly fresh. The Caesar salad was also freshly made...and delicious. The Ona pasta and the meatloaf with mashed potatoes were amazing! We’ve never tasted better mashed potatoes, the buttery side sauce was indescribable! Do not miss if you are in Yachats!More

I am of Latino origin and went to Ona with ny boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. When the hostess pulled up my reservation, she looked at me while saying my name and told me that there were no places for us to seat. We said...there was no problem that we would wait and decided to order a drink while we waited for a table to clear. We were standing in a corner and she told us we couldn’t stand there so we moved. While my boyfriend was getting a drink a white couple came in and she greeted them and told them their table would be ready in a minute. They proceded to stand in the same corner we stood and she did not say anything. I don’t usually see racist practices toward me but this one was so obvious that I could not ignore. Eventually we got our table, we sat, we drank our glass of wine (which we paid for) and left without ordering. Will never go back. Went instead to a wonderful fishhouse a block down—luna’s. Amazing chowder and fish chips!More

We used to like this restaurant but the last time we were there the service was incredibly slow. It took us 25 minutes after we sat down to get one beer and one lemonade. The food came after we'd been there an hour. It didn't...seem like they were understaffed at all as there were plenty of wait staff. But try to find them and they were no where to be seen. We ordered a full size ceasar salad to share for $16. It barely filled the small plate it was on and would have been adequate maybe for one person. I mean, how expensive is romaine lettuce? The fish sandwich i had was ok but the thick breading on the fish was very greasy. I asked for extra lemon and tartar sauce for the sandwich and it never came. Now all this sounds kind of whiny as we had the privilege of eating out at a nice restaurant but if you're paying top dollar for food, you expect equal value and we certainly didn't get it.More

From start to finish this restaurant is a class act. Service is superb as well as the food. We ordered the Ona Pasta and the Ling Cod with two glasses of white wine from Oregon vineyards. Everything is fresh and exquisitely seasoned. Finished the evening...with their homemade peach ice cream. The atmosphere on a Friday night was pleasant, with indoor and outdoor dining, according to the wishes of the clientele. Highly recommend this restaurant.More

Our last evening in Oregon we ate dinner here. The menu is updated often based on season and availability. Excellent seafood dishes, cocktails and desserts!! The only small issue is our service was a little spotty - we finished our cocktails and after about 15-20...minutes we have to ask for our waiter to order more. However our waiter was very kind (maybe short staffed?) And we were not in a hurry. We would definitely go back.More

The food, as usual, is so good. I eat there every time I come from Idaho. Service was good too. I would only make 2 comments, neither of which to do with the food. We could have had a marvelous view while eating but had...to look at the garbage cans. It seems it would be easy to move them, enclose them, or perhaps another idea to give us the ideal view. The other issue was that I thought I had lost my wallet there. I called 3 times that evening. Either I was left hanging, they would call back and did not, or something else. I realize they are busy but I was frantic.More

Where do I start. First time here. We made reservations so we got in right away. We ordered drinks and the grilled oyster appetizer. Did not disappoint. The oysters were great and tasty. A little pricy for the drinks. My hubby ordered the Meatloaf with...3 meats. Wow! So tasty and he couldn't stop eating it. Delicious! I ordered the Scallop Risotto. First time ever having risotto. This meal was so awesome I savored every last bite. First time in a long time we didn't need to go boxes! The service was also very very good. The only thing I was disappointed about was they offer nothing for birthdays. :-( We cannot wait to go back though.More

We had dinner at Ona one night of our three in Yachats, and wish we would have gone at least once more. We had the Cod Piccata, and Crab Cakes, and both were absolutely delicious. Totally recommend if you're in Yachats.
