Unusual restaurant in both cuisine and atmosphere. Food and service was great, but don't know that the menu would appeal to everyone

“Don't Miss Ned Ludd!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

Don't leave once you cross the threshold. It's worth the quirkiness. Amazing gravlax and green salad. Delicious mac & mornay and hen & mushrooms to share. Great dessert samplers. Wonderful guidance from our server on how much to order. Fairly small wine list but extensive enough to pair with the food choices. Prices also very reasonable given the high quality of the food. We'd been recommended to Ned Ludd by several people in the Willamette Valley. SO glad we took the recommendations! :-) Total bill for dinner for two including three glasses of wine, two appetizers, one side, one entree and two desserts was under $100~!

“Inventive, delicious real food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2011

You just won't find yummier food or better service. Jess is a delight. Jason is as creative, kind, and hospitable as they come. And the other staff are great, too. Everything comes out of the wood oven...it's like having the best dining experience while camping, except that you're in a tastefully redesigned space where everything is done thoughtfully. Oh...and the patio is nice.
