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.

Meriwether's Restaurant & Skyline Farm Ratings and Reviews
We love Meriwethers, but this visit was less pleasant. We were excited to eat outside on such a lovely evening in the gardens out back; however, the loud noise of the AC unit (or something like that) on the roof was overbearing. It was heard over conversation and the enjoyable music. We were very disappointed. But the food and service was great!
Joined another couple here for brunch; weather cooperated so we were able to dine in their covered garden area. It was as lovely as we'd heard (our first visit was the dead of winter; no one wanted to be outside then!). We all chose Benedicts; three salmon with asparagus and goat cheese. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the server was friendly & efficient.
Only one word of caution; watch out for flower vases tipping on their own. Ours did and I got pretty soaked. But it was a hot day, I was wearing cotton, nothing to clean or fuss over thankfully.
Tried Meriwethers after perusing their menu on Opentable. We were hoping for a great meal and we were not disappointed. A spectacular meal and a very amiable staff. We will be coming back next time we are in Portland.
We had the arancini, Dungeness crab deviled eggs and gravlax as an appetizer, the asparagus salad and the mushroom risotto and lamb chops. And we would happily order everything again. Especially the mushroom risotto.
Pleasantly surprised!! What a cute and wonderful find. Great staff suggestions and knowledge of menu. Ravioli was to die for as were the desserts. The pork with the ravioli was soooo flavorful. There were a few moderately priced options that were still delish for wine, entree, etc. Most items were pricier, but you just have to work harder. They have some good deals. Also, not sure if it is a farm to table thing as I do not routinely experience, but everything on the menu didn't sound as good as it actually was. Maybe they should invest in some menu marketing to have folks better understand what they are getting. The current menu does not do the food justice.
I specifically chose Meriwether's because of its outside seating and had requested an outside table on my reservation. When we got there, they weren't serving outside despite a lovely day.
Since outside dining was a specific request, it would have been nice if the restaurant had let me know that this was not possible. We would have chosen another place to eat.
We were then seated in an "alley" between the main dining floor and the reception area. A very disruptive location. I wanted to leave but my guests didn't want to make a fuss.
The hostess with whom I initially interacted seemed put-out that we'd shown up at all.
Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food was inventive but not exceptional and the wine pour was notably on the stingy side. Meriwether's did not scrimp on the prices, they were impressively high.
"Ambiance" was non-existent with waiters and diners going back and forth to get to their tables.
I will not be returning.
My wife, myself and our two young children, (ages 6 and 9), have attended Meriwethers for the past three years on Mother's Day. This year was very disappointing. My wife likes a simple black tea - there was none. My kids don't eat eggs, they're pancake and bacon types with relatively normal appetites for kids. With a fixed menu the only option for them was the egg scramble with no egg!! (There were no substitutions allowed yesterday). They both got very unappetising plates of a few bits of think sliced ham and about 6 large roast potatoes, very offputting. My wife's corned beef hash had too much fatty grizzly pieces of meat while she pretended to enjoy it for the occasion I know she was internally dissatisfied. I had a Mexican pozole with a couple of strings of pork and poor flavour. The cost was too high for a poor meal, something I did not notice in previous years. Meriwethers needs to focus less on pretention and more on quality of food and basic selection. Somewhere else next year I think!!
The restaurant has always been very nice and we have liked to go there for special occasions. This Mother's Day brunch was good but not great. The price was very high ($38 for adults and $25 for children). Portions were not very big for that price. My wife's quiche was just a small slice with some greens on the plate. We did get a slice of banana bread and some fruit but that is all. If you wanted mimosa's they were $10. It was noisy, which is expected, but seemed very hectic. It appeared that they had a wait staff for about every 2-3 tables. Just not impressed. Think we will find somewhere else for our "special occasion" meals.
Went for Mothers Day with my husband and 2 small kids. I've been there on several other occasions and usually have no complaints. But on Mothers Day, The food was sub par compared to other places in Portland. Prixe fix proce was very high for what we got and the 20% gratuity for all tables plus living wage surcharge felt unnecessary. We would have tipped 20% anyway. The service was the only thing that was good.
Wonderful menu of local produce and meats creatively crafted to take advantage of what's available on a given day. We enjoyed a pantry board of cheeses, coppa, and arancini - delightful!
Dinner entrees were superbly done: I had the grilled coppa.
Service was a little inattentive (long delays before plates were removed after finishing courses, had to ask for flatware for the next course, empty water glasses. But orders were spot-on accurate and everyone was engaging and pleasant.
The lunch menu is so limited. The food is not worth the expense. I have become more and more disappointed with the lunch food. On my previous visit, the fish & chips were mostly the breading, very little fish. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE upgrade your lunch menu. The location is perfect, but I will find another venue if my next visit is like my last. Thanks.
What a fabulous meal but almost overshadowed by the horrible service. The server wasn't the issue once we got one - that took 15 minutes for a server to come to table then longer for each course. A high end restaurant with Mc Donald's service maybe it was just a bad night
Not our first time at Meriwether's and with the temperature at almost 70 degrees we knew we had to find a great place for outdoor dining. Everything about the experience was enjoyable. For us, it's a drive, almost an hour from home to NW Portland on a Friday - but worth it. Which is something that can't be said for so many downtown spots. The neighborhood is clean, easy access to a freeway and it comes with parking! Nuh' said. No driving around for 15 minutes hoping to squeeze into a spot. Their patio in the summer/fall is gorgeous. We'll be back -
I've been here many times and may have even done an OpenTable review before, but I'm doing one for this visit because it was a particular pleasure. We brought an out-of-town visitor as we often do. Our visit was preceded by a most friendly and gracious text message from the restaurant about some details of our reservation. We started with cocktails because we know they do them very well here. The food was up to its usual standard, as was the service. A side detail, but not trivial, is that there's always free parking in the lot or on the street.
Went here for an early birthday dinner. The food was great. The kitchen was very accommodating to special requests and our server, Genevieve, was so helpful and pleasant. I can strongly recommend the halibut, beet salad, and mushroom risotto. The halibut was especially delicious. We will definitely be back.
