Tavern on Kruse was our choice for a nice foodie dinner but we noticed it also does lunch and what it looks like an amazing breakfast. With its farm to table ethic, the menu is sumptuous with variety of tempting options. We had the decadent crab dip appetizer followed by the fresh clam chowder, the ahi tuna salad entre and the miso glazed salmon. No reason to explain, we had no room for dessert.

Between lunch and dinner no customers. We arrive and wait at the reception table while the hostess chats on the phone while draped over the desk never acknowledging we are there. Open kitchen cooks see us, bartender sees us. After approximately 4 minutes we are just about to leave. Bartender comes over seats us. We needed a few more minutes before ordering. Bartender doesn't come back for 15 minutes. She doesn't ask if we want fresh ground pepper for our salad, we have to ask for it. We have to ask for more hot water for tea, in-fact get up and get more cold water ourselves because we never see her promptly enough to have descent service. One of our enrtees sits in the window for 5 minutes. We can see it. The other entree goes up and she brings them over. Poor timing on the cooks part because my hot egg dish is now cold. She doesn't check on us until we are almost finished. Too late. She doesn't ask if we'd like coffee, dessert or anything else. Just leaves the check. The food was delicious but it is a pity the service reflects if customers returner not. We will not.

Saw good reviews so we went. Nice location off I-5, good halfway place to meet (we live in SW Portland and other couple live in Salem), plenty of parking, very nice service, nice interior ambiance. Unfortunately, food was just so-so at best. Three of us had the scallop entree with gnocchi , I think was $38—4 medium sized scallops and 6-7 gnocchi. Probably ok quality, but both were so cool/cold, it was hard to tell. The crab artichoke dip was good as was the apple tart dessert. Still, doubt we will go back as entree was overpriced and not served properly.

Food is notably good, perhaps the best in Lake Oswego. I have returned multiple times and have always been pleased.

The food was a little froofy but it was fine. For the first time ever, however, I came away from a restaurant completely frustrated with the silverware. Who designs a fork like that? It was all I could think about.
