Because of the high recommendations we received for this restaurant, we drove from Portland to Salem just to try it out. It was a Sunday afternoon around 4:30, so we figured we would be safe as far as getting in before the crowd! WRONG!
We were seated in the fireplace room which should have been a very cozy, quiet place to enjoy a relaxing dinner. NOT! When we arrived, there were lots of little kids who were not being controlled by the adults in the party.... and they were all running around and acting like kids usually do. Finally when that party left we thought we could peacefully enjoy our meal. NOT! Not long after a sports team with their parents arrived. The kids were fine, but the adults were all talking over the top of each other making it quite noisy.
The food and service were excellent. But, not sure that we would return. This place is way too popular and I am not sure that anytime of the day would be ideal to have a quiet meal.
