About Meriwether's Restaurant & Skyline Farm
One way to make sure you’re cooking with the freshest ingredients is to grow them yourself. Meriwether’s grows the produce it serves at its own Skyline Farm and is proud to be among only a handful of truly farm-to-table restaurants across the country. Chef Michael Delaney's menus are inspired by the Willamette Valley’s peak-of-the-season abundance, matching our harvest with some of the finest raw ingredients in the world, from the farmers, fishers and ranchers of the Pacific Northwest.
Inside, experience our warm and cozy ambiance with stone fireplaces, hardwood floors, stained glass and copper accents. Outside, guests dine year-round in the covered, heated & enclosed patio, gardens & gazebo. There is even an outdoor fire-pit, so perfect for a chilly Portland evening. Take a walk through our gorgeous all-season garden that surrounds the entire 2601 Vaughn Street historic building.

Meriwether's Restaurant & Skyline Farm Ratings and Reviews

Meriwether's is a quaint spot in NW Portland with an outstanding garden area for warm weather dining. It was quiet yesterday due to predicted back weather so the place was unusually quiet for a Saturday morning. The food is very good as is the services. Prices are cheap but you get good value for your money.

A friend gave us a gift card for Christmas and we went for brunch. The food was amazing! Everything tasted fresh and was perfectly seasoned. It's a beautiful space, cozy fireplace and lovely stained glass. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Definitely will be back

It was a nice evening. Service was great. The water guy was really great - attentive, but not hovering. Took care of our needs and cleared plates away pronto. Relaxed evening with appetizer, great meal, drinks and no rush. Appreciate that.
I do want to say to the owner that the 2% surcharge b/c of the minimum wage increase is ridiculous. Your food is good, but is expensive. Our meal for 2 with one drink each, an appetizer to share and two plates was exactly $100.00 for which we tipped $20.00. You added $2.00 (yes, I know, only $2.00) for this surcharge, and I don't know why?? We tipped generously, and I'm sure you, the owner are making plenty of money with what you charge for food. I don't begrudge your staff (waiters, busboys, chefs, hosts) getting more money, but you should pay them, not pass that onto us. We are already paying a lot for our food, and most people at your establishment will pay a decent tip >18% certainly. Are you trying to make a statement to Multnomah County? If so, the statement I understand from you is "I am a cheap, greedy owner, who is unwilling to pay my staff, who make this place happen for me, what they are worth". Is that what you are trying to say to your patrons??? Think about it.

Our group of four went here for dinner on January 4th. This was our first time at Meriwether's. As mentioned elsewhere, the seating is tight. They really pack those tables in that room. Personally. I prefer booths, but then that is just my own preference. Our service was excellent---no complaints there.
Even though I knew it was going to be an expensive experience from checking out the menu on-line ahead of time, I still feel that the meals are overpriced here for what you get. Even with restaurant prices in general going up, Meriwether's is carrying this to extremes. A $200+ tab for four just isn't worth it. And an additional 2% charge for a future increase in the minimum wage? Come on.
The bottom line is that we won't be back. There are just too many other good restaurants in the Portland area that still give you a much better value for your money.

This is the second year we have celebrated New Year's Eve at Meriwether's, and it did not disappoint. Our waiter was terrific, the food and cocktails delicious, and the atmosphere was both festive but also quiet enough for conversation. Everything was perfect.

The food was extremely salty. We were a group of five with very different salt tastes, but we all thought things were too salty. The restaurant is lovely but the food was a disappointment. The brunch choices did not offer much variety. A la carte was limited. We could not offer a single egg- had to get two. This seemed odd.

I very much enjoyed my steak. My wife got a mushroom pasta that was tasty but also very salty. The ambiance is fantastic and the service was very good. I'm disappointed they ran out of the creme brûlée it sounded really good so I'll look forward to that next time.

We had an incredible meal for my Daughter's birthday with our two grandchildren (7 and 9 years old). The children were on their best behavior because the place is so lovely and the staff so attentive, especially toward the little ones. All of us had wonderful meals from appetizers through dessert. It was no overly fancy and so fresh. Only down side was it was the most expensive meal we have ever had!!

Meriwether's is the best meal we have had out in a long time! Every entree was delicious. We started with focaccia and an assorted appetizer plate. Next came our entrees: pork chop, filet, trout, and farm chicken. All were seasoned well and cooked to perfection. The sides that came with the entrees were unique and flavorful. We skipped dessert, but enjoyed port and espresso. The service was phenomenal -- a nice balance of attentiveness without being intrusive. The setting was lovely.... warm and cozy. We highly recommend Meriweather's!

Loved the ambiance and the service was good. A little disappointed with the food. We've very much enjoyed the brunch in the past and will probably go back for that rather than lunch. Overall though, a lovely place, which I plan to enjoy again.

Fabulous service, friendly staff.
We enjoyed ourselves very much. Our only complaint: we ordered the pork chop and loved the squash polenta and Brussels sprouts but the meat was very dry and tough. A little pricey for a not so amazing piece of meat. I chose not to complain during our visit and took it to go to compliment our puppies kibble. (No disrespect in doing so, we love our dogs)
Thank you, we will return.

Very amiable evening by the hearth! We enjoyed beautiful presentation of local ingredients. Our server was very attentive and with a reservation, we did not have to wait to be seated. A bit pricey, but I recommend this for a special evening out with friends!

Took over 30 minutes to serve appetizers, then another extended period waiting for the main course.
Also, we expected the brunch menu to be offered, specifically the dutch baby pancake, during the holiday week following xmas...but, it was just a typical weekday lunch menu.
We were compensated for the appetizers, and were told that the busy kitchen was unable to prepare the appetizers any quicker than 30 min. due to the Pantry Board being so popular and requiring individual grilling. The apple, caramelized onions, brie on bread was a tasty combo, the deviled eggs with crab was too vinegary and had too strong of an onion favor for me, the pepperoni is waxy, not a pale table texture for me, but, my husband liked it, and it's a common texture on the NW coast I find.
Overall, there was way too much waiting time, while starving hungry...not sure we'll return anytime soon, unless we want a lot of time to chat or linger and relax before food arrives.

We do a holiday brunch with another couple each year. This time I suggested Meriwether's, as they had never been there. They loved it! We have been a few times before, for special occasions mainly, and the restaurant didn't disappoint. It also looked beautiful, decorated for Christmas.

Our waitress was a gem. Very outgoing. Very knowledgeable about the food and its ingredients. Food is always outstanding! We've been coming here for years on the 26th to celebrate our (three sisters) birthdays. The only hiccup was when one of us wanted to sit down 10mn before 11:30 reservation and the hostess seemed "put out" and not willing to make it happen even though restaurant wasn't full yet and not caring that two very large gifts were being held by the one wanting to sit a few minutes early.

First, thank you to the staff for being open late on Christmas Eve. Your sacrifices to work late made our evening SPECTACULAR! Our two twenty something children asked if we could not do Christmas gifts this year, but instead make memories through a series of weekend events. A hike in the Gorge....the Portland Art Museum Andy Warhol exhibit.....inviting friends over......an urban Portland hike.....and at the advice of friend, we made reservation for Christmas Eve dinner at Meriwethers. We made an 8pm reservation (after waiting for days for someone to cancel their reservation so that we could make one!) and we were seated exactly on time. Dane was our server and he was amazing and very attentive. The fish, pork, and chicken dishes were mouth watering good and the squash polenta, latkes, and potato gratin sides were just as good as the meat. We nibbled off each other's plates and even had enough to bring home for leftovers. Thank you for contributing to the beginning of a new set of Christmas memories for our family.

We eat at Meriwether's often and thought it would be the perfect place for Christmas Eve dinner. The dining room and the bar both have wood burning fireplaces and are very cozy with lots of ambiance. Unfortunately we were seated on the staircase landing leading downstairs to the dining room—a space that is a bit dismal. But all turned out okay because of the our server, Sabrina, who was most charming and warm, yet most professional. Both my steelhead and my husband's chicken were very nice. We thought the price for Martini's, the meal and one glass of wine very fair.

We had Christmas Eve dinner here. It was delightful. The holiday decorations, menu, cocktails, service and excellent food made for a memorable night and the start of a tradition for Christmas eve. This is one of my family's favorite restaurants year-round and they did not disappoint us on such a special evening.

We have dined at Meriwethers several times over a few years. This visit we brought some friends for a holiday meal. While the service and holiday decorations were nice, we were all five of us disappointed with our meals. Quality was way down from previous visits. Chicken (which used to be one of their high points) was tough and tasteless. Pasta dishes were bland and dry. Salads and appetizers were just okay and seemed over-priced for being thrown together. Meriwethers needs to check their kitchen staff if they want to try to keep up their past reputation. This used to be a foodie place but is certainly not now. Perhaps they need to invest in a real chef and spend some time revamping their menu and training the line cooks. There is a lot of competition in Portland and this just won't stand up to the other excellent choices as it currently is.
