reservations about reservations

After reading all of the recent polarized, mixed reviews, I was anxious to try Paley's again to form my own opinion. I had eaten there years ago, and I found it OK, (B+, maybe three and a half stars). So, about a week ago, I made a reservation for tonight. Unfortunately, I just received a phone call from Paley's in which I was told ""there's a lot going on at the time of your reservation, and we can't honor it. ... view more

Great French Food

We had reserations for four with another couple who had dined there previously. I really enjoyed the food. I order the Escargot, beets, sauted gree, Lemon Verbena Ice Cream and a spectacular Lemon Drop. The Lemon Drop was very good. It competed with Jakes Lemon Drop that I love.\r \r I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys French food.\r \r The only draw back I had is that we sat near the chee... view more

First Review of Paley's Place

Have been meaning to try Paley's place for a LONG time, just hasn't worked out until last night. This review is as accurate and objective as it can be. Seated right upon arrival, 10 mins. before our 6:00 PM reservation. Everyone there greeted us with a smile and a great attitude. Loved the initial atmosphere, dark wood furniture, tables etc. and the spacing of the tables was perfect for their efficiency and o... view more

Tried to like it but...

We were there for our wedding anniversary. (21 years :) ) My husband had champagne at the bar, I had a glass of white wine. Bartender and drinks were fantastic. The night dissolved from there. They placed us under a spotlight, making me look awful-- I'm usually not that vain, but this light made me wince all night. They refused to adjust. My husband sweetbreads were awful and chewy, wine was terrible and my pa... view more

Horrible experience

I'm sad to report that I'll no longer be coming to Paley's Place. This is one of my favorite restaurants in town, and I've always had a good experience during my many visits. Last night, my wife and son and I went to celebrate Mother's Day. After being seated and ordering a drink, it took 35 minutes for the drink to come. We enjoyed our appetizers and salads. We asked if the outdoor heater above us could be turned do... view more

I have eaten at Paley's now about 6 times over the past 3 years. Have never had a bad experience.\r \r With the exception of popcorn in truffle oil served as an amuse bouche. Not that it was bad. Just didn't think it was so good.\r \r It's pricey. I say very expensive. But if you're going out for a special occasion, it's a good bet.\r \r On the downside, I'm pretty sure you have be over 70 to get in.

Impressed our SF visitors

We each had three courses with no dessert. Food was perfect temperature, delicious and very well presented with perfect portion sizes. Service was also outstanding. We moved here a year ago from SF and were entertaining foodies up for a visit. All agreed that it was the best meal we've had in Portland and in the top 3 for the whole year.

Glad I kept an open mind

I am not sure why there is such a rush of bad reviews recently about this place but I am glad I didn't let them sway me from going there. We met with some friends last night and I dont really have any complaints. The food is organic & sustainable #1 - there is going to be a higher cost for just the ingredients off the start. #2 - this is not your typical american ""feed lot"" restaurant. Food is ment to be enjoye... view more

Distasteful experience

I took in town guests to this restaurant. What a disappointment! Though the food was acceptable, the service was terrible. We waited a long time to order and when I asked the waitress for help, she make a snide remark and left us to continue waiting. However, I won't make the mistake of coming to this restaurant again. I wrote a notice to the manager but did not get a satisfactory response. For the high pri... view more

Great???...Not really!!!

I went there for dinner last night and totally concur with previous reviews....what is the big deal about Paleys place???\r The food was not bad , but just ok. All of us at our table concurred...the appetizers and desserts were the best part of the meal and they were just OK...not great. The ribeye steak that I had for the main course was overpriced and just blah. El Gaucho, a restaurant I had visited a just few d... view more
