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
This was my first time at Meriwether's. We went to celebrate a very successful business deal. I was not impressed. The seating was very tight. You felt as if you were sitting at the same table as those next to you. The service was slow. The food was ok, but the portions were very small. In my business, I always want the customer to feel they got an excellent value. Excellent value is not something you will find at Meriwether's. $175 - $200 to feed four w/o drinks.
Not a restaurant I would recommend. Portland has some great restaurant's this in not one of them.
In my option Meriwether's will not be around long.
This was a very nice dining experience. There were four in our party and each ordered differently but all enjoyed their selection. The wait service was attentive and knowledgeable but not intrusive. Our out of town guests were really impressed. Kudos to the staff, job well done.
Had reservations that were early so had to wait a couple of minutes for them to get set up but when we got seated were immediately waited on we got the menu & drinks started. When drinks came maybe 5 minutes later we began to ask questions regarding that day's menu options, which were answered by a very well informed waiter. He gave us a few minutes to make our decisions & then came back & took our orders. Again, within minutes the appetizers came & were explained as to what each item on the platter were. Our entrees showed up maybe 5 minutes after we were finished with the appetizers & the feast began. Food was excellent, service equaled the food. All in all it was a very enjoyable evening at a very good restaurant, even if it might be a little pricey.
The overall experience was disappointing. We were seated then waited and watched while other tables around us were seated and served receiving their main courses before we even received our appetizers. The food was good but not the quality i would expect for the price. It was Valentines night and they were somewhat busy but i would expect more than mediocre for the price we paid.
Valentine's Day event was over priced.
They packed too many tables in, and it took away from the vibe. The tables were also metal garden tables covered by a tablecloth. They should have rented better quality tabletops, and spaced them out more. Focus less on capacity and more on quality.
Overall great place... but they missed the mark on this event.
Less than professional hostess - displayed an unpleasant demeanor when asked to reseat.
My caesar salad was unlike any caesar I've had before. It was on the spendy side and I've never had to cut my own salad before. My friend's mushroom pasta looked good and she said it was. I like the fact that you're easy to find when coming from south of Portland and it's easy to get back on the freeway. The ambience is great and the service is superb. However I do find it a bit on the spendy side.
We were given a gift card for this restaurant. They were very service oriented and the ambience was lovely, but I felt over priced for what it was. Our food order got lost or pushed back so they brought us not one, but two appetizers on the house. They were very good and very appreciated. My steelhead was just bland though. I lived in Alaska off and on and cooked fish frequently, and I can say I know how to cook fish, especially salmon. I prefer my recipes to the fish I had here that was prepared by a chef. I won't return, but again the service was impeccable.
Went there for breakfast with my wife. The service was excellent very attentive but not bothersome. The food was delicious and I especially love the fresh squeezed orange juice. My wife and enjoyed our time there by the fire place and will be returning soon.
Meriwethers is a favorite for breakfast. Please bring back peach bellinis.. also bring back breakfast pastries and scones. How about a breakfast basket of pastries with order? Chilaquiles need to stay on the menu. Period. The Luis mole is ok but lacks crunch! Also make a meat quiche with bacon please!! And a meat scramble. Love your fresh veggies but mix it up with meat!
Great restaurant in a historic building. The service was top notch as was the food. We enjoyed the brunch menu which had several selections that included local produce from the restaurant's farm. The seasoned potatoes are something you can't pass up and must try. My 7 and 9 year olds enjoyed the Dutch baby , the pancakes, and the eggs. Will definitely be back.
The food ranged from pretty good to excellent, but was very rich. my stomach is still sorta churning today; and it gave me acid reflux last night (rarely happens). The service was sporadic: ranged from inattentive (20-30 mins between courses / check-ins) - it was almost a 3 hour dining experience for the two of us, which was annoying. It took the waiter 15 mins or so to inform us that the dessert we had chosen was out (but he did comp us another dessert). overall, the crowd skewed on the older side for sure. Good food but the long wait for food and weird service - not to mention how it made me feel afterwards - means i won't be going again.
As always the food was delicious. I think the Scallop order is over priced considering there are only two on the plate. The restaurant is beautiful and always vey clean. If you are a 'foodie' and look for unusual food choices this is worth it for you.
I was very surprised to see the restaurant has added a 2% surcharge to the already high prices to cover a fee for higher hourly rates. Very unfair I think to pass this along to your customers. It is a cost of doing business as all licensing, taxes, and benefits are.
I guess this means less tips from now on.
Menu changes weekly, and is often determined by what is seasonally available so the entrees are hit or miss. For the most part I've enjoyed most of my orders here. The noise level can get loud and becomes difficult to hear across the table for a business lunch. Food is great. Service is wonderful. Ambiance is nice.
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.
