Restaurant of the Month
Wonderful dinner with our fellow EUG Foodies. They seated us at the first booth which was like being in a hallway instead of one of the dining room/cars. I thought it would be too busy and I did get to see the heavy traffic flow but all in all it did seem private. Our server was very attentive and our wait times were not unreasonable (I was timing literally). The wine list was as you would expect of a restaurant of this genre. Most bottles were above $30 but a nice selection of domestic and international. and now the food. Yes, right off the prices were high, but as expected in a setting such as OES, or King Estate, etc. Was it worth it? My Ink Squid homemade pasta for $30 was enjoyable even though the sauce was anemic. Kathy said she did not enjoy her salad, especially with the price, but I know I loved the taste of her she-crab bisque. Like I said they were crowded and lots of folks looked like they were celebrating something. The remodel was done with lots of attention to detail, keeping the old while renewing and refurbishing. Picture is a new meeting room with new stained glass (sorry for the bad pic). All in all I would say they will still continue to be one of Eugene’s upper end restaurants with a menu selection to please most palates and a level of service that is overall first rate. But the best part of the evening was the lovely company.
