Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Joel Palmer House. You’ve done the world some good today.

Flawless! Our group of 4

Flawless! Our group of 4 discriminating foodies all agreed that this was an excellent dinner. We did the Mushroom Madness tasting menu. ($80 per person) The menu was slightly different then on the website. (The restaurant prints a new menu almost everyday.) The restaurant allows you to substitute other menu options from the main menu onto the tasting menu as long as the entire table gets the same course.... view more

A response to the previous review

I am an employee at JPH and just wanted to let you know our employees are treated very well. The gratuity is added in on the bill, but we all are compensated, front and back of house. We also have medical and other benefits available to us. So please, don't avoid trying us out based on someone's impression the employees aren't treated well. The fact is this is just not true.

The service charge does not go to the servers!

Just FYI the service change they add on instead of tip does not go to the servers or the kitchen staff (unless you include the owners). They do pay a bit more than minimum wage to servers but still. \r The food is mostly uninspired. Support restaurants that treat their employees well instead.

Great example how to enjoy wild mushrooms

I have eaten here several times , each time everything was great . The cost of the meal is high .After reading the other reviews which were negative ,somehow it dosent fit. I have sent a lot of people there and no one has a bad experence. \r Take the time and try it yourself .

We won't be back

We really had high expectations of this restaurant but were sorely disappointed. After a day of wine tasting we were both hungry, we both opted for the mushroom madness menu being foragers ourselves. Here the mushrooms did not disappoint but the menu did. The first course of ""risotto"" was like over cooked Mexican rice with truffle flavor, every time i have had a good risotto it is creamy and runny with the fla... view more

Best Mushrooms and Wine

Dinner was a scrumptious finish to our tour of Oregon Wine Country. The mushroom tart is divine, and the pork loin was the perfect fall dinner. I also recommend the white chocolate and cherry bread pudding. The only problem with dinner was that I ate too much. But, I'd do it again. Service was attentive. The wines are quite expensive compared to retail, so it may be worth paying the corkage fee.

overpriced for quality of food

Tried making reservations on the net, never received a reply. Had to make reservation by phone.\r This was suppose to be a special Dinner for our 37th wedding Anniversary, this restaurant was of my choosing, I'm lucky my wife did not divorce me. \r We chose our entree leaving the rest up to the Chef/Owner.\r My wife ordered Seabass, her favorite dish, not only was the fish not fresh, I suspect it was not real Sea... view more

A great little restaurant to visit in wine country.

Four of us dined at Palmer's last night (July 06) and had wonderful entrees - my husband raved about his pork tenderloin, the sea scallops were delicious and the crusty copper river salmon was also ranked highly. The mushroom risotto was wonderful - maybe some truffles in there - and mushrooms added to entrees added delightful aromatic flavors. We sat outside which was very comfortable with nice garden views.

After an hour drive from Portland, we were escorted to a table right by the front door. It was cold and cramped. The service by the young waitstaff was very attentive and personable . The menu was at least 30% more than the website pricing indicated, which would not have been bad had the food been up to snuff. The sauces had too much salt and the mushrooms specialties were just buried in the food instead of being h... view more

Overpriced mediocre cuisine & bad attitude :(

Cuisine very rudimentary. Mushroom and meat dishes were of a ""Sizzler"" quality - Filet ordered med-rare sent back twice as it was med-well. No appology, in fact server disdainful and rude. 6 disappointed people - Do yourself a favor -- dine elsewhere
