The Painted Lady Ratings and Reviews

The food was very elegant, creative and well-prepared. But pretentious and too complicated for my taste. A little less embellishment and more opportunity for good ingredients to shine through would have been preferable. The dessert was very complex and, involved many flavors (it seems a bit much to slice the blueberries). A three tier tray of candies at the end of a big meal was also too much. One or two home-made candies would be lovely..
Service was professional but rather perfunctory. The waiter was very knowledgeable, he would put the dish down and explain it, and then say enjoy as her turned his back without making eye contact. A little less fussiness on the food and more staff engagement with diners would have made it a better experience. I appreciate the artistry of the chef, but won't be returning.

Went to the Painted Lady in Newberg and was greeted by two of the staff and seated in a nice location for my wife and I. It was a surprise for my wife because she had wanted to go for some time and an Anniversary was a great excuse. The service was great from everyone there and the food was exceptional. Highly recommend The Painted Lady for a special romantic dinner!

Service was as excellent as we have come to expect, including substituting an all Oregon wines for the less than local original pairings. The execution of the kitchen was not as superb as in the past - even the gratefully ubiquitous gnocchi. Perhaps, just an off evening. Our server, however, saved the evening. A comment after asking if there was a problem with a barely touched less than quality piece of undercooked NY strip that 'I guess you do not come to Oregon for steak,' resulted in a frown, a response that they take these things very seriously and a marvelous smoked duck breast with wine reduction sauce from the Chef's menu that truly was superb.

A staff member called a few days before to confirm reservation and ask if there were any food allergies. Multiple wait staff served our table for two, based on our progress through 7 courses and the next available waiter. Everyone was very knowledgeable about the wine, food and restaurant history. They were also very sensitive to our dining progress and didn't whisk our plates from us after the last bite - we had just the right amount of time between finishing and savoring a course, clearing the plates, and the next course. The wine pairing was very complimentary for each serving and the cost was very competitive to bottle prices and of course complimented each serving rather than just one. We'll be back for the next birthday!

This experience reminded us very much of the Herbfarm in Woodinville, Washington, only better! We did the nine course menu with wine pairing and it was a five star experience. Not cheap, but it may have been the best meal we have ever had anywhere. Each course was carefully and artfully prepared and arranged, and each bite was fresh and interesting, from the first course (an egg souvide) to the salad course to the steak to the desserts. Lovely, understated elegance, fantastic wine pairings, and impeccable service. They were very gracious in accommodating our table change request when we initially were seated in a side by side arrangement which we were not very comfortable with (recognizing that many people love that type of seating). Anyway, wonderful evening.

Experienced the chef's serving and wine pairing for the night. Each pairing was thoughtful and well matched. The dishes were all well presented and delicious. The wait staff is the best I have ever experienced. They were very engaged and knew the dishes well.

My husband and I were looking forward to this special date and The Painted Lady delivered far beyond our expectations. Such a wonderful relaxing restaurant in the heart of wine country. Amazing food and wine pairings, friendly and knowledgeable service & connected to the local community. Our palates were delighted, and the anticipation for each course was well timed, thoughtful, and a special treat for our evening.

We were really impressed that the restaurant called the day before to ask if there were any food sensitivities, to see if it was a special occasion, and to verify the number in the party. Since they asked whether it was a special occasion, I expected perhaps a personalization on the dessert plate, as I thought I'd seen delivered to another table. It was fine that they did not do this, but it seemed odd because they had asked. The food and service were impeccable. Nearly every course was a work of art, and the wine pairings were spot on. Despite the small portions, we were quite satisfied at the end of the seven courses.
It was a memorable experience, and I'd recommend it for proposals and anniversaries, or any very special occasion.

Lovely food and stellar service. From Bernie's confirmation phone call inquiring about food allergies, to the special cake Chef had delivered to our table to take home, to the Sommelier giving us a tour of the kitchen when it was late and we were the last guests of the evening...truly a special place, worth the money and the travel. The food was delicious, creative and highlighted the local bounty. Looking forward to a return visit!

The Painted Lady was absolutely exquisite! I would definitely recommend sharing a wine pairing as well with the tasting menu, as it really improves the overall experience. The food was incredibly creative and all beyond delicious. We went here to celebrate our engagement and believe it might be one of the best meals we have ever had. Highly recommend!

The variety in the courses was wonderful. I enjoyed the server's knowledge of each plate. Neither myself or my companion are wine/beer drinkers so I choose a martini. It was very good and I was not offered another, which I would have liked. The fish is served at 160*, so if you prefer flaky, you should ask. The Filet Mignon is served rare, so again, if you prefer it different you'll have to ask. (They don't ask you.) After the desert plate they served a 3-tiered candy tray. It was very beautiful, but too much for our tummies. They offered to split it and packed it up for us to take home, so we were able to enjoy breakfast too!
Around plate 5 the woman serving us had an attitude change and she became cold and unfriendly. The other 2 gentlemen serving/clearing were charming.
I plan to go again and hope to enjoy the meal with a group of out-of-town family members this fall.

Superb, as always. Every course was a delight to look at and to taste. Wine pairing (for him) and suggestions (for her) enhanced it even more. The service was flawless, yet warm and friendly. We love The Painted Lady!
Food was very good. However, the smoked ...
Food was very good. However, the smoked filet was too smokey (hard to get the flavor of the meat). Little loud for a high priced restaurant but that is a trade-off for the old house décor. Their asset is the service which is very professional and well planned. Very good for the location (smaller town).
One of the best ever.
This small older house off the beaten track in Newberg, Oregon severed the best meal with wonderful service we have ever had on the 4 continents we visit. It is expensive by Oregon standards (plan on $200 per person) but is worth every cent. A difficult reservation but worth the wait.

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.
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%
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.
