A great space in downtown Oregon for a very nice meal with special friends or business associates. Great farm to fork menu and great cocktails, wine list, beers. A small bar....get reservations as this place is very popular.

Nice Restaurant for romantic, friends and family. Service was nice, food is good, price not high. advance booking is preferred. I like the foie gras and the duck breast. There are few public parking nearby.

Located downtown providing a relatively small setting for delightful food. We started with chicken liver pate that was pleasing to both eye & palate. I had the soup-du-jour ...a cream garlic soup with a few pieces of smoked salmon floating on top - a great...More

I hosted a group upstairs for a corporate lunch. As we know, heat rises and it became very hot up there. They brought in fans for us. I thought they handled it well.
