Didn’t meet the expectation
A friend recommended this restaurant while on the coast. The ambience was nice - intimate and cozy. Unfortunately, wasn’t super impressed with the food in comparison with the prices. My husband had the steak and it was just average. I had the halibut and it was over cooked. The pork belly was good and the salad was decent. I guess my expectations were higher than what was delivered. Server was nice to begin with but not extremely attentive. Probably won’t come back. Wasn’t horrible but definitely not worth the price.
We’ve driven by this place for years and we’ve always said, “One of these days we should eat there!” Or, “If we’re ever up here without the kids…” the typical excuses. Well I’m proud to report that finally, tonight, 9/12 on our 14th Anniversary we came, we had a great view from our table, our server Lanna was absolutely fantastic, kind, attentive and perfect, and the food…my God the food was phenomenal! Best dinner I’ve had in the state of Oregon? Yup! Top 10 out of all my travels? Absolutely! I remember reading a travel article years ago about how great the food is and the chef at this place…as of September 2023 that is still the case. I’m looking forward to coming back some day, hopefully the chef is still there creating masterpieces and Lanna is out front keeping the place running like a well oiled machine, while making every single table feel like they are her top priority. I can’t say enough about the place. We had the 4 course paring which was fun because you had no clue what you were going to get but we’re glad we did, everything was excellent! Pictures of our courses and the view included in the review. Make a reservation already! Don’t drive by year after year like we did, wondering. Do it, you’ll be glad you did! We even saw a whale right before dinner as we were walking around checking the area out! Perfect evening!
A special place with exquisite cuisine
The restaurant is an elegant space with views of the inlet from every table. Gracious attentive service. The food was a work of art in terms of interesting unusual ingredients, subtle mix of flavors, and presentation. We split the mixed green salad with gooseberries, the Wagyu construction with rare beef, tiny leek greens, a dab of red sauerkraut, and rye flakes on a bed of exquisite thousand island dressing. We also had the peach crème caramel and a lovely macchiato. For us, it was expensive but worth it for the experience of the chef’s originality and precise sense of proportion. This is not a place to wolf down your food. It’s practically a meditation. The setting is quite magical, so altogether a special experience.
Off night for the Chef?
We've been to this restaurant many times over the years but the last visit was disappointing. The service and view were great as was the pork belly. However both our entrees were not good, with the beef served barely warm and the ling cod hopelessly over cooked. The creme brulee was tasty but served mostly cold. Hard to believe from Restaurant Beck.
The food and service are as fantastic as the view.
We were 2 couples on a Friday evening enjoying an amazing sunset and fantastic food. Everything we ate was outstanding. We had interesting and unique salads, pork belly paired with garlic ice cream, roasted beets, halibut, and ling cod, all paired with a great wine list. Lonna, our server, was delightful and very personable. She gave us great advice on the wine selections and knows her stuff. We can't wait to go back.
