Would have come back many more times of time had permitted! They have amazing pies and cakes on display. Their seven layer chocolate cake is in my sights for my next visit!

Five of us went for a birthday lunch. One bite of the Alsace omelette and my husband was saying "Mmmm." The same for another family member and the Monte Cristo sandwich. I got the banana french toast and the bread was so delicious I thought it could have been served alone. Four of us got pastries to take home - the spinach and feta croissant was huge and light and airy. The service was excellent. When we arrived we were told there would be a 40-minute wait. It ended up being less than 15 minutes, and we were waited on, served drinks, and received food in very short order. Our server even brought a fruit tart on a plated tray that said Happy Birthday in some kind of fruit sauce at the end of our meal. We were pleasantly surprised at the price - less than $85 for the meal - given the high level of food and service.

Great local eating establishment!!
This place is clean and bright, the menu is long and interesting, service is fast and friendly, the food is great, and there’s plenty of free parking. There were three of us for lunch. I had the burger with bacon and cheese which was cooked perfectly, and my wife and her friend had the daily special which was fried razor clams that were excellent. I will definitely be back the next time I visit West Linn.

After we were unsuccessful in getting into another Milwaukie restaurant for dinner without reservations on Thursday evening, we decided to give Hale's a try. We knew the reviews were good for breakfast, but had no idea what to expect for an evening meal.
First of all, the service was excellent. We were seated and offered beverages immediately and no fewer than three servers stopped to refill my husband's coffee during our stay. Everyone we met was pleasant and helpful.
I ordered the meat loaf special. I was given a choice between brown and ham gravy, which I thought was sort of strange, but I chose the brown gravy. It was very thick and did not look appetizing, but it was delicious. My arteries may have clogged up completely, but I would definitely order it again. The meat loaf was acceptable and the mashed potatoes were good. I opted for a salad to start and was pleasantly surprised. It had beets, large slices of cucumber, and very good croutons, much better than the iceberg lettuce and shaved carrots usually served in this type of restaurant. My husband enjoyed a reuben sandwich and onion rings. The bill for the two of us was only $17.
We will definitely go back to Hale's, especially for breakfast. The pancake menu looks fabulous.

"Upscale Elegance at a Casual Price!" Monday-Friday Complimentary Valet Parking at Lake Oswego location during the lunch hour.
Nice variety of dining options including seasonal specialties. Preparation & presentation were done well. The staff was very attentive and made sure our party was happy with everything. All in all a very pleasant experience.

Upscale meets casual, romantic, excellent service, carefully crafted food. Bugatti's Ristorante in West Linn has been creating memories since 1992. We strive to use fresh, local, and sustainable ingredients to create an authentic NW Italian cuisine. Amazing event space.
We dined with six other couples; the appetizers, all 12 dinners, and desserts were all delicious. Creative menu, wonderful mix of seasonings, perfectly cooked. The tuna was outstanding. One of the best overall dining experiences to be had in the Portland metro area. Don't miss it.

We visited for the first time on a busy Sunday morning. Took a little while to get a table, but understandable given Mother's Day. Decor looks a lot like what you would expect if your older grandmother had a restaurant at her place. Somewhat dated, but cozy. Food was good, although the strawberries were a little tart. Portion size was good and friendly service. Always seems to draw a crowd. Parking is pretty good, but can get a little tighter on Sundays in the summer due to the farmers market close by.

I had the Iron Miner's Breakfast. It was a lot of food. The eggs were well cooked. The bacon had a good flavor. I loved the accompanying gravy. It was quite tasty. My husband ordered sausage and eggs which looked as though they were nicely cooked. I tasted and did not care for the chicken sausage. However, his potatoes were outstanding. They were crispy crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. My daughter ordered the Granola plate and once again it was a lot of food. The yogurt accompanying the plate was a nice thick Greek yogurt. The fruit ad fresh. She said the accompanying bran muffin was quite good.
The patrons seemed to be drinking a lot of alcohol with breakfast. They set their Spanish coffee on fire before serving it. What a sight! But there were many Bloody Mary's and other drinks being served. Seems to be the place to go for your breakfast alcohol!

Lake Grove's finest Italian restaurant, Riccardo's, has been owned and operated by Riccardo and Georgette Spaccarelli since 1980. Each dish is prepared with the freshest ingredients, and our eclectic wine selection ensures a perfect accompaniment. Come dine al fresco on our stylish patio and enjoy a glass of exceptional Italian Wine.
Roberta and I attended an Olum Bauda wine dinner. Gianni Bertolino traveled from Italy to tell us about the wine. The dinner featured a 5 course meal with the wines perfectly paired to each course. The Braised beef chuck roast was to die for. Of the 3 Barbera d'Asti that we tried, our favorite was Barbera D'Asti, DOCG Superiore "Le Rocchette", 2013. The wine was reasonably priced for a wine of its quality

The kalua pork was too salty for me, but I would order the Hawaiian BBQ chicken again. The macaroni salad and white rice complement the meat and sauces very well. Great servers, short wait time.
