We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday and were very satisfied with everything. This was our third visit to The Painted Lady. Food and wine were top notch and excellently pared. Wine steward was knowledgeable and so were the servers. Great service. We never felt rushed.

Always an amazing meal, great service -- just perfect.
Food worth it. Not sure about the wine list
The $85/person 7-course meal was well worth it! Not sure I felt that I got the same value for the $75/person for the wine pairing. It certainly made the meal more enjoyable having the wine presented with each course so I enjoyed that aspect of it but it just felt like the $75 was a little on the high side. Amazing food and my wife and I were treated amazingly well for our 20th anniversary. The interiors could be updated a bit.

Proceed with caution. Overpriced "weird" (different) food. Good for foodies (perhaps)? I wouldn't go back. Feel the same about mud baths. Do it once for the novelty. Perfect service and pacing of the 9 courses. But No view nor ambiance (it's in an old house). Went with my BFF. My husband would have hated it. It takes 2.5 hours so if you go, go early. I wish we would have gone to posh restaurant at Allison Inn instead. Awesome view, great service and same small "interesting" food. Heard the small taco places in Newberg are awesome..,and cheap.
Great Vacation/Anniversary Memory
The tasting menu was a real experience. Flavors and textures not typical of even high end restaurants. Great service, quiet comfortable atmosphere. Plan on spending 3 hours to sit back and enjoy all the courses. We left so full, even though the plates are small. Small but very delicious!!!
Almost a perfect score
The only thing we would change is the dessert end of their fixed course menu. Once we had consumed multiple courses of excellent food they served us a very nice palate cleanser followed by wonderful cheese, then a choice of two excellent desserts. It should have ended there but then a plate with several chocolate candies were presented. In other words the meal was dessert heavy. Of course one can always decline to eat those extra-special candies but the idea behind going there is to purchase a fixed course that has been carefully balanced so we went with the flow and subsequently realized it was a mistake. Will we go there again? Of course. If the rating system were finer this place would have scored a 99%
Fantastic birthday dinner
The seven course tasting menu was outstanding! We will likely go back again when in the area.
Will not return due to server
Arriving at the restaurant we were greeting warmly by the maitre d', who personalized our visit, the celebration of our anniversary. He spent some time interacting, making the evening start as a very special experience. Our server arrived and was also being friendly, helping us with the menu, telling us about the restaurant. That continued until we decided not to order wine. At that point he seemed to shut off, deciding we weren't worth his time or attention, no longer being a big ticket item. How do I know this? I have ten years as a fine dining server. But you decide: He returned to take our order and was pushy and rushed us. He stopped by one time during our seven course meal for a perfunctory check-in. Meanwhile, the couple next to us received lots of his attention - schmoozing, humor, making sure their dining experience was wonderful - and, of course, they ordered wine. I thought maybe it's just me, my high standards as a server, but my sweetheart remarked she felt the same way. And that's the sad part. She was really looking forward to a special night and his greedy mind and bad attitude left her feeling like she didn't matter. As we left the restaurant he said a fake and polite "Thank you" while the server assistant held the door for us, a young man who wished us a thoughtful "Happy anniversary". Dear Painted Lady management, you have great food and some wonderful staff, but it is not enough to make up for the disrespect we received throughout our meal from this server. I will not come back.

creative food and fantastic service
The Wednesday night experimental dinner is such a fun experience. The service is fantastic. The menu was creative and it was relaxing to not have to choose food to order, since the menu was set. The wine pairings were enjoyable and varied. The seven courses were small, but we left feeling full. I would definitely go back.
Wonderful experience. We will come again.
The experience was 1 of a kind. Nearly the best we have had...
Gem in the Heart of Willamette Valley Wine Country
I lucked upon this delicious, amazing restaurant while on the second leg of my recent vacation that ended in Willamette Valley in Oregon's wine country. I happened upon the Painted Lady on its final "Experimental" dinner for the season. For anyone who has ever dined at the Inn at Little Washington - located in Washington, Virginia - one will feel this amazing, very humbly priced Painted Lady is very much on par in terms of food, presentation, and impeccable service. The food was amazing, the wine list was fantastic - although I went with the eight course meal's wine paring... What a fabulous find and a place I WILL return to on my next trip to Willamette Valley. Enjoy!
The Painted Lady is frustrating, as is the upper division food scene. If you enjoy cooking, and wines, and have excellent skill at it, you'll be frustrated that to replace that experience out will be very, very expensive. Why? First, lots of staff. People are expensive. The host/hostess is professional and greets one by name. The maitre' d is accommodating, professional but not condescending. The Som is articulate, seems knowledgeable, and appropriately personable. The service and clearing is unobtrusive. It seems that regardless of the beauty and simplicity of the location, one must charge a lot for food and wine, to be desired. It is still just food. I think if you really love food and wine, and creating an experience, then make it somewhat accessible. That being said, we won't be back often, but the harmony and subtlety of Painted Lady will bring us back, again and again.
Wonderful Experimental Dinner session!
On Wednesdays during the winter The Painted Lady had experimental dinners. We attended two of them. They were fantastic!!! Chef Allen really came through and gave us delectable bites at each course. It was very fun.... looking forward to nest year already!!!

Wow! Yes, over the top expensive, but great food, flavors, service and their description of each course was amazing. Fabulous wine list but that too was way overpriced. Recommended for intimate special-only occasion.
Creative & Different
The Painted Lady in Newberg, Oregon is a five star, wonderful old home, in which the staff & chef are over the top in excellence ! It is not an inexpensive, quick dinner; but rather each course is wonderfully prepared & presented beautifully!
Fine dining at its best.

Best of the best
Painted Lady is a perfect ten in every category. Incredible food, beautiful ambiance, impeccable service, smart wine list. The best of Oregon.
This was our fourth time dining at The Painted Lady, and we've been astounded every time. We agree that it's the best restaurant we've ever eaten at - including several in France. Dinner is served in 4-6 courses, often with extra 'mini' courses between, so each person might be served 15+ individual items - and we've yet to find _even one_ that wasn't amazing. We can't recommend it highly enough.
Outstanding in every way. Every course was a wonderful set of tastes and textures that worked amazingly well together, and I came away surprisingly sated. In addition, I must compliment the chef. I have food allergies, so based on prior experiences, I approach fixed menu restaurants with trepidation. Painted Lady handled my last minute dietary news with expertise, making "off menu" substitutions that were as worthy as the ones my companion received "on menu."
What a great surprise!
Painted Lady was an unexpected great find in the wine country. Be sure to leave yourself time for a wonderful, leisurely meal.
The best food, wine, and service anywhere.
Special thanks to Allen, Jessica, and Matt for their graciousness, hospitality, and talent. Soon to be a 3 star Michelin.
We have dined here 1/2 dozen times because our dining experience has always been 5 star. While the service and the ambiance were all great, the food was at best average. The dishes were relatively pedestrian and the staff was not prepared for 1 diner being gluten-free and another being a vegetarian, despite letting them know in the reservation and over the phone. As this was a a celebration of our twin daughters 21st birthday and their first trip to wine country, we had high expectations for the evening and based on past experiences. We will try again, but it will be a while. Hope it was just an off night, almost felt like the chef wasn't there?
We had been refferred here by some foodie friends and were not dissappointed at all. Everything was better than expected....serrvice fantastic, food creative and well prepared. They were VERY accomodating for both gulten free and lactose free diners at our table.
Awesome food/ great service- way over-priced
My wife and I last dined at the Painted Lady about 5 years ago. As I recall, it was a bit pricey, but worth it. Our dinner on Valentines Day was a special treat. The food was spectacular, and the wait staff was very attentive. But, when I saw the bill, I felt like I had been conned. Sorry... you don't get to charge $18 for an ounce of whiskey that retails for about $2. Well, you *do*, you just don't get to charge *me* that price twice. I expected to splurge and pay on the order of $150 for a special treat... but the bill was $277 before the gratuity. Thanks. I enjoyed the evening. I won't be back.
Fine dining in Newberg
This was our first time dining at the Painted Lady. What a wonderful experience . We dined on Feb 11 and they were serving the 7 course Valentines Day Menu. Each course was delicious and served at a very nice pace. Each course was explained thoroughly when served. The maitre, and all the servers were very attentive and professional . You would not expect to find a fine dining restaurant such as this in Newberg. It is worth the high cost and perfect for a special occasion . We can't wait to go back again.

It was just as I had hoped. It was a Romantic evening for our Anniversary. The staff was knowledgeable and very attentive, friendly, with no pressure. My favorite was the oyster, and the different kinds of mushrooms with the dishes. We had the Chefs menu and it was great.

Wonderful, creative, farm-to-table experience in an elegant, gracious setting. Impeccable service.
Another wonderful experience at the Painted Lady!
Always a treat to revisit our favorite dinner house. Superb!
Better than the 4 star rating
even though I only gave 4 stars on all categories, this restaurant is far better than that. It truly is a one of a kind, food experience. If you are going to get filled up, stay at home. If you are looking for a culinary experience that would excite even the most finicky foodaphile, you have found your people. Very good service, although at times, a bit slow, but the courses are meant to be savored and not rushed. Ambiance is a small house, they do the best the can with what they have. Go and give this place a try, you will not be disappointed.
The chef's tasting menu was one of the best meals we have ever eaten as compared to many gourmet meals we have enjoyed around the world, including Paris. It was truly a one of a kind dining experience and we left enthralled and in bliss. Every course was delectable, creatively and beautifully presented and skillfully served. We enjoyed our meal so much that we are dining at The Painted Lady again this week to try out the experimental Wednesday chef's menu. We thought the meal was well worth the investment and we recommend it without reservations.
Let the chef surprise you the food is wonderful the service is top notch. A lovely evening
Food for the Senses
If you are looking for a unique dining experience this is your place! The Dining area is intimate. While I did not count there were not more than 8 tables. The small venue was delightful and quiet. The food was extravagant. The seven course meal was outstanding filled with unique dishes that were brought out to the table at a stately pace. Perfect for a long conversation over a cocktail and a bottle of wine. The food parings were inventive. I do enjoy a good meal and was a little concerned that with the size of the portions that I would not be satisfied...I was wrong. The wait staff was amazing: attentive without hovering and the timing was outstanding. I could not have wished for anything more. I would highly recommend this for romantic dinner. I was there with my Son and it felt that we had a place of our own. When I am out visiting with my wife next time it will certainly be revisited.
After a day of wine tasting this was the perfect place to end our day. The meal was relaxed with surprises in each course. The staff made you feel special. Look forward to our next visit.
Excellent Friendly Service and Great Food
Wow. In one word, wow! Lovely service by a staff who is on their game. They are there for any and everything. Nice. The Food is deconstructed and reassembled into works of Art. This is much about the experience as anything else. Truly unique and a nice treat for someone you care about. Enjoy!

It has been several years since we have eaten at The Painted Lady. I have very good memories of that experience, but I was very disappointed this time. Each course had many elements, but none of them were memorable. It was as if so much time was spent developing unusual sorbets, etc. but no one took time to sit down and eat the meal to ensure it was satisfying. The plating was beautiful and the service was good however there are a number of other places to go with beautiful plating and good service that also know how to develop flavors and create a very satisfying meal.
Four of us experienced the tasting menu paired with wines at the Painted Lady on a quiet, rainy Friday evening. The food was outstanding with each of us remarking how one course was better than the last and the wine pairings were spot-on. The Sommelier (who's name I have regrettably forgotten) was amazing. He shared the story of each of the wines we sampled which only enhanced our appreciation of the wines and the deliberation of pairing that wine with this food. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive and we savored every moment of the evening. Thank you and bravo!
We loved the adventure of The Painted Lady's Experimental Dinner series. The food was wonderful, and it was great to be part of something new and experimental. The service was knowledgeable and top notch, and the atmosphere is always lovely.
