Thank you as always. Everything was perfect! Even the weather.

Walter Thayer, Sr. Events Planner, NIKE

Dinner was beyond my expectations! The food, ambiance, service. Everything was perfect. The food pairings were immaculate, particularly the Dungeness risotto with the Chardonnay!  I look forward to working with Meriwether’s again many times in the future.  Keep up the good work. Your place is a model of what makes Oregon so uniquely wonderful.

Erik McLaughlin, National Sales Director, Willamette Valley Vineyards

Fantastic!  We loved it.  It was a challenge for me to put together at such short notice with such accommodating on Meriwether’s part. Beautiful outdoor dining.  Thank you!  We will be back.

The evening is being rated a 5.0 out of 5.0.  People loved it so much, they asked me to consider requesting a return in early fall.  We had a fun night.  The place you gave us was incredibly special and made for such a great night

Sheri Strite, Delfini Group

Our company had a private dinner at your restaurant.  Please extend our thanks to the wait staff that took care of our dinner.  The service was exceptional, polite and very professional.  My apologies for not getting the individuals names that made our dinner all the more special.

The evening could not have been more perfect  The ambiance of the restaurant was wonderful, the food amazing and the service over the top!  I’ve had many compliments from staff on what an excellent venue it was.  My guess is that you have some new fans!  Thanks so much also for making this work on such short notice!

Jennifer and Chuck were so pleased with everything.  Your Captain Michelle was fantastic.  I felt I was in such good, experienced hands all day so I could just relax and enjoy being mother of the bride.  All of the servers were friendly and attentive and the food was as expected ~ wonderful!  Great job.”

Jennifer & Chuck’s May Wedding

Wow, That was pretty darn fun.  Thank you so much for all the hard work.  Want to know how many people said that was the best wedding ever…?  Everyone did!”

Lauren & Jameson’s September Wedding

Happy New Year and thank you again for the amazing wedding you gave us. We couldn't have asked for a better evening and everything you and your staff did for us was perfect. We got a little wild at the end and more showed up than expected, but Meriwether’s had it so under control and handled everything with grace and respect for both the restaurant and our guests.  No one can stop talking about the food!  We are so happy!”

Marci & Eric’s August Wedding

We absolutely had the greatest time.  Things could not have gone any better than they did.  The weather cooperated.  The food was amazing (as ever).  Michelle was awesome and the staff was perfect.  Everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves. Thank you, thank you for all your help and for providing the most outstanding venue in Portland for our wedding.

Carla & Gary’s August Wedding

Our wedding at Meriwether’s was beautiful, simple and perfect…just as I had imagined it.  Thank you and all the wonderful staff at Meriwether’s.  It went so fast!  Our guests were so taken with the garden.  Again and again they raved about the food which John & I also agree was superb.  Everything was perfect, leaving us with the fondest memories of our wedding day.

Georgia & John’s September Wedding

Bernie (father of the groom) and I cannot praise Meriwether’s enough for the wonderful job that was done for Jim & Denis’s Wedding Reception.  We heard so many compliments about how the wait staff was so helpful and I personally want to thank Sean for getting me a plate of food b/c I had to do last minute cake decorating and was late sitting down for the main course.  He did this on his own and I was so surprised at his thoughtfulness.  The food was EXCELLENT!  You have a wonderful restaurant & a very helpful staff.  Thank you again for the memorable evening

Bonnie & Sue, Parents of the Groom

Denise & Jim’s September Wedding

Unbelievable night at Meriwethers.  I can’t say enough about how you worked with us to make this happen.  The Chef did a fantastic job with the salmon and all of the food!  The Captain and staff were wonderful to our guests and so efficient.  We have received so many compliments about the Reception.  Everyone had a great time and many said it was the best Reception they had ever been to.  God bless you and all the staff at Meriwether’s.

Carrie & Chris’s May Reception 

Thank you for our wonderful Rehearsal Dinner.  The ambiance, the service, the food and the logistics could not have been any better.  I have done many events, both large and small with much more pain and stress.  The evening was stress free and fun for me which I hadn’t intended…what a lovely bonus!!!  Everyone helped make us feel so at home; each request was handled with grace and dignity.  I will always think of Meriwether’s when I entertain in the future.  You guys are wonderful people and great to work with.  Thank you.
