The Painted Lady Ratings and Reviews
This is a very special dining experience. The service, ambiance, creative dishes all combine to make the evening most enjoyable. We opted for the full seven course with wine pairings. The pairings are spectacular and should be experienced at least once. The seven course meal was full of delicious and unique tastings. The portions are perfect but the full seven courses should only be attempted if you are hungry. Be prepared for a 2 to 3 hour experience that will be hard to forget. I suspect that the price is much higher than most restaurants unless New York or Paris are frequent stops for you. However, If quality, creativity and attention matter to you, the price is reasonable.
The food, atmosphere, and service were exceptional. We were embarrassed by our dress, as we didn't realize it was such a formal dining room. We were not in jeans and tee-shirts but my blouse and my husband and friends' plaid shirts was still a bit too underdressed. However, the host and servers were incredibly gracious, we didn't feel any disdain from the restaurant despite our casual attire. They were in fact incredibly informative of the dishes, proud of the farmed sources, locally sourced wines, and answered all of our questions. Our reservation was for 8:30, we did not leave after all of the courses and wine pairings until 11:30 and they were not ushering us out the door. We will be coming back, just an exceptional, upscale dining experience with incredible food and service.
A very disappointing example of it being much harder to maintain excellence than achieve it. Not only was the execution in the kitchen flawed, but the concepts were even more so. Set menus at those prices only work when the quality of the product is worthy and justified. Neither is true. The house staff tried hard - actually much too hard - to compensate for what they knew by the portions of each course remaining on plates from most tables we saw was much less than average, much less stellar in past years. The overall result was overpriced and under-performing. It is sad to see the state to which the former Grand Dame has fallen. There are much better options down the road.
It has been nine days since we last ate there. I'm still thinking about the meal.
It was our first time there since they changed to the all 9 course chef's choice. It was exquiste. All the dishes were a sensory delight. Their signature soup! I can't stop thinking about the soup.
Go there. You won't regret it.
We were here once before about 4 years ago and had an amazing dinner, but this meal was truly outstanding. Wish I could give it 6 stars. The chef is so creative and is clearly still curious, learning and interested in upping his game. This meal had a bit of a Japanese influence with the best course being a savory custard with miso broth and crab. So much umami in one little bowl! Some of the later courses had a bit too much bitter for me such as the steak with puréed nettles and fennel and the first dessert (there were two) of bitter chocolate and lime. However, they were still fascinating and overall just a fantastic and thought-provoking experience. The wine pairings were good and I would recommend as it would be impossible to find a wine that would go with all courses. One pairing was enough to split if you don't mind sharing a glass and need to drive home.
I have heard about the painted lady for many years but haven't got the chance to go. Last Sunday, husband and I went there for a special date. We were very disappointed with our 5 courses dinner we had that day. Almost every dishes were overly salted. My husband usually like his meal a little more salt and he agreed that the dishes were salty. The gnocchi dish that day was so salty that I couldn't eat it. The coffee that my husband ordered tasted burnt which meant it has been on the coffee pot for awhile now. None of the dishes were memorable for us. I'm so surprised about this restaurant in which I've heard so many good things before coming here. The service there was very good.
This is fine dining, a disappearing experience in our hyper-connected world. Why? Takes some time, yea—but that’s the point. Enjoy! Expensive, sure, but you get a memorable evening full of grace, fine food & wine, beautiful memories. Much better than some poorly done concert or beer-soaked live sports. And in tiny Newberg, who would have guessed. (But maybe the men all don’t have to wear jeans.)
The menu is usually done as a done deal, no myriad choices to stress about, just lie back and enjoy. We did! With the wine pairings, which were excellent. Fish (halibut), beef, cheese and most fantastic, the dessert: sorbet, a dollop of creme fraiche, strawberries poached in something yummy, a visual stunner. Best dessert ever!!
Our waiter was elegant, knowledgeable, sharp & attentive. The entire staff was gracious and helpful. I’ll be going again.
Our meal at the Painted Lady was absolutely awesome. The ambiance was delightful. My partner and I loved every single thing that was brought out. Each course just kept getting better and better. My partner is a chef and even he was "wowed". Very nice! Well worth the cost and drive.
Sorry to say...this was overpriced and overrated. The food was good, but not as good as they think it is. The major issue was the $75 per person wine pairings that were described as 2 oz pours...which we figured was a good value...not so much...I was lucky to get a full ounce per pour, definitely not what I was told. I am glad to have had the experience, but won't be doing it again.
We were treated very well. We called ahead of reservation three times and once after making reservation. They accommodated a Kosher meal request with only one day advance notice. The beauty of the restaurant, the excellent service, the heavenly food and the wonderful help we received over the phone made for a very special evening that will never be forgotten.
My husband and I dined here for our 8th anniversary, and we were completely blown away. I highly recommend the full chef's tasting menu with wine pairings in order to have the full experience. Every plate looked like a gourmet magazine cover picture, almost too beautiful to eat. Their Miso Custard was a definite highlight. We'll definitely come back.
We eat at Painted Lady every time we go wine Tasting/ buying in the Willamette valley. Food is consistently terrific and creative enough to be really unusual. We really like it. The thing that may scare some people away is the 7 course tasting menu for $105. It is so good that it actually approaches a good value. The server said that they had a less inclusive menu but i didn't ask to see it.
The best thing about Painted Lady is that for as many times as we have been there (at least 10) we have never been served the same thing from the course meal. It is such a treat to be surprised with each course that comes out perfectly cooked and perfectly described by our server. The food is impeccably presented and devoured...leaving us fully appreciative of our experience.
The menu is pris fix. About 12 tasting courses w wines to complement food. Amazing French cuisine. If you are looking for the usual American dinner dish, this is not the place for you. We were served delicious food and wine for two hours. It was an amazing experience, similar to the French Laundry in California's wine country.
You must have a reservation. Seatings are spaced so the food comes to you directly from the kitchen.
2nd time here, phenomenal. It's an experience, each bite and sip tantalize your taste buds, while the staff introduce each course and wine pairing and take care of your every need with top notch service and professionalism. You pay for the best and you get the best. Can't wait to dine her again!
Wonderful creative food, excellent service, incredibly expensive. I have never in 50 years of dining had a prix fixe dinner that cost $430 (for two). I wouldn't go back, nor would I recommend it to a friend who hadn't just won the lottery.
We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at The Painted Lady. It was beyond incredible. The food, the amazing service and having our occasion acknowledged by all the staff. It was truly the best meal we have ever had, and we dine out quite a bit. It was beyond a meal, it was an entire experience we will remember forever. We did the food and wine pairings and it could not have been more perfect. We cannot wait for the next special occasion!
If you are a foodie search no further the painted lady is the oregon destination for you. The dishes are executed emaculatly with innovative twist like misu castard . However if you need to accomodate less adventerous diners worry not, majority if dishes however inventive stay true to their original ingrediants so when having a steak it will taste and look like a steak. The venue is lovely in old restuarated house with beautiful garden . The staff is accomodating yet not imposing as expected in high end restuarant. Vine list is impressive. Overall charming romantic destination that leaves portland based alternayives behind.
If you're looking for a wonderful, memorable meal with food that delights paired with superb wines, then get on the reservation book for The Painted Lady. The restaurant defines professionalism from a wait staff that gracefully presents each course to a kitchen staff that understands we eat first with our eyes. We are wowed by each plate and delighted by every bite. What a wonderful evening.
It is possible that I got jaded but amongst restaurants that offer tasting menu across US this one came toward lower end of the list as neither my wife or myself found about half or more of tasting dishes to be not especially exciting: apetisers were tasty but not too surprising, steak, duck and seasame crusted salmon were all expertly prepared but not above that, deserts were good, half of the wines paired were rather average or below average for my taste.
