The Painted Lady Ratings and Reviews
Painted Lady was about standing restaurant well prepared food served by a professional staff. The 9 courses were of good size and delivered at a relaxed pace wine pairings matched the dishes very well . We were celebrating an anniversary and they made it special. They also handled gluten free very well.
This was our second experience, and we were happy to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary at this restaurant. Highly recommend the wine-pairings - well-worth the variety and especially the well-matched flavors to the food. One of us is lacto-ovo-vegetarian. All but one vegetarian dishes were excellent. All non-veg plates were well-enjoyed. The servers were so knowledgeable and willing to make conversation. We look forward to coming back.
Really unique restaurant. It's a little formal for my taste, but the food was very good and presented in a beautiful way. Servers were very attentive. The host/manager was extremely friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the overall experience. Would definitely recommend it to those visiting Willamette Valley.
Elegant but unfussy. Ambitious tasting menu--and they delivered on every course. The wine pairings were creative--both European and local wines, including an amazing 2011 pinot and a Hungarian Tokaji with dessert. Host and servers were very professional, warm and welcoming. We went for a special birthday and will certainly be back.
Hands down one of the best meals of my life. The service was impeccable, the wines remarkable and the miso custard to die for. Every single dish was better than the next. Such a gem in this neighborhood and totally unexpected. I had some pretty amazing mess in Portland but nothing compared to this. It is worth the drive for sure!!
I felt I needed to treat my wife to a nice dinner since she had a busy week and wanted to show my appreciation . I made the reservation not knowing what to really expect other than it being a 4 diamond rating restaurant which is given out very rarely. I was met with courteous and professional greeting. Too much isn't good. Feels fake. This is perfect. Everyone there is a professional. Don't expect a slip up here. Wife and I ordered the 9 course meal paired with different wine. I brought my son because I felt he needed to experience this at a young age. He was given a 4 course meal. He is well mannered so I knew he wouldn't be a distraction. He was welcomed and he even enjoyed the meal. My wife and I were stunned and enjoyed the different adventures are taste buds went through that evening. The portions were not too small where you couldn't enjoy the meal and mix with the pairing. It was perfect. Too perfect where we can't get back to eating regular food now! I recommend with going with a 9 course meal. Why? It was like opening a gift each time. You never knew what was coming which was exciting. The owner deserve their high rating. You will not be disappointed. There is a difference between getting paid to cook food and cooking food out of passion. This place is the later and they do it exceptionally well. I will be back when they change their course again.
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.
