    Superb service and excellent food. An upmarket restaurant but good value for the quality.

    Great bartender! I forget his name but he has dark-rimmed glasses & makes one hell of an old fashioned. Happy hour is affordable & tasty but beware of dainty portions. Regardless Paley's is worth it.

    Vitaly Paley is a legend and rightfully so! You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu though we’re partial to the Stuffed Quail!

    Be sure to save room for dessert! While the food was wonderful the desserts were absolutely sublime.

    Over-rated. Standard Portland.

    The salted caramel Sunday at Paley's is truly out-of-this-world. All the food is wonderful and showcases unique ingredients from the Pacific Northwest.

    Let's summarize it by saying this is the best place to experience new flavors. The escargot in tear bones is amazingly good and original! Love it!

    Some of the best salmon and lamb ever tasted.. And a wide selection for charcuterie and cheeses.

    In a city famed for its ingredient-driven restaurants, special credit must be given to Paley's Place, a shrine to the bounty of the Pacific Northwest housed in a rambling, candlelit Victorian home. Read more

    Get the cheeses for dessert. The local raw (unpasteurized) options are great!

    This is the Balthazar of Portland: the place that everyone agrees on, and a restaurant that manages to be creative, yet so classic. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The food is whimsical, earthy, and decadent. Consider one simple meal: a romaine salad, charcuterie, ravioli, pork shoulder with polenta. Featured as one of Portland Monthly's Best Restaurants of 2009 Read more

    Sit at the bar with Lisa if you can. Enjoy trying something new. Paley's is one place where I will try pretty much anything. They take northwest food, add a French flair, delicious. It's very special.
