When previous dinner plan's fell thru, a local friend took me to Paley's because having been there many times, she knew it was a guaranteed hit!

Located in what looks like a renovated home, this cozy location is great for an intimate dining experience where the conversation is just as important as the menu.

But the menu is mouthwatering...so you'll have to bring someone capable of top notch conversation to match it!

My friend & I shared several of the dishes, which change regularly based on what's in season & fresh. Everything was amazing but the two standouts were the scallops (served with blueberries...never would have thought it made sense, but it was spot on!) and the artisan ice creams (the berry & peach sorbets were good...but the basil ice cream was MIND BLOWING!!).

Also had a bourbon cocktail that was fantastic...very refreshing for summer!!

There were small bites from the chef to both start & end the meal...nice little surprises & a great way to bookend a really nice dining experience!

Had a large party dine here recently. They took excellent care of us, for being a large party. We did have an issue with different courses being brought out to different people at different times. Food was exceptional and highly priced but you knew this going in. Complements to the chef!

My husband and I have no complaints about this restaurant. Our experience was awesome. Service was not pretentious. The value for the price was right on point. Portion size was perfect. The food was delicious and super flavorful. Oysters were outstanding! We also had a cheese plate, house cured meat, and a salad. My husband had an outstanding steak and I had incredible foie gras. Washed it all down with great cocktails and wine!

The food is good and local so the menu changes from time-to-time. What I really like is that many of their entrees are offered in both half and full portions. And the half portions are really good-sized. The lamb is delicious. The wine list is extensive with lots of Oregon wines. We went early on a Sunday night so service was not an issue although they were fairly busy by the time we left.

Only a relative small restaurant that looks like someones living room. Service sometimes a bit slow but it was busy. Food was very nice and they had a nice wine slection. We enjoyed our dinner here. Had been to Paleys before but will come back next time. One of the best restaurants in Portland.
