We love attending Magenta and Snug Bar for Dim Sum and drinks. Either as a couple or with friends, it's always a good time. The pad thai is lovely, the spring rolls can get a bit sloppy, and some of the dishes are a bit pricey for the small serving size, but the quality is there.

A friend that is local recommended we meet here for lunch and a visit. He chose the absolutely perfect spot. It was a cool rainy day and the waitress asked if we'd like to be seated near the fireplace. Yes, please, as we were totally chilled from our walk. We had a delightful pot of jasmine tea while we waited... More

Walking around downtown Corvallis on a windy, rainy morning and came across Magenta Restaurant just before the lunch hour. Plenty of seating due to the early time and our waitress was pleasant and got us immediately seated and brought water to the table. The menu is an interesting combination of classic Vietnamese offerings (noodle bowls, Dim Sum, etc.) as well... More

I come here often for lunch or dinner and get a few small plates off their Dim Sum Menu. So many different options and everything is always beyond delicious. Such a great environment upstairs, as well as downstairs in the snug bar. I highly recommend anyone to try this place.

Excellent food all around and wonderfully peaceful place to enjoy a meal without the banging of dishes and load music and other patrons. We enjoy both lunch and dinner here for good reason. Very comfortable tables. Excellent wait staff. The food varies a little depending on whether the owner/chef is in residence, but overall the dishes are tasty and well... More

Could be best chef in Corvallis. The tapas menu allowed us to enjoy several dishes and all were excellent.

Different to many restaurants in Corvallis, this offers Asian style dishes served in a tapas style - lots of small plates for sharing. The service was welcoming and friendly if a little slow. There is a wide selection of the tapas-style dishes on offer as well as normal restaurant food like steaks, and a reasonable, but expensive, wine list. The... More

We have eaten lunch here each time we're in Corvallis the last few years(been vacationing in OR & recently moved in the OR coast). We've always had the soup. This time 4 people for lunch--we had the veggie pho, veggie miga, chicken pho & lunch special dimsum--total about $46 w/ 3 sodas. We've never been disappointed w/ the pho &... More

Probably wouldn't go back. Beautiful decor but unreliable yet very pleasant staff. Meatballs tasty. Mint spring roll was tasty. Pad Thai was tasteless. Full bar w novice and so slow bartenders.

The small plates option make for an eclectic and delicious light meal. I love any of the chicken options...citrus, satay or Bombay. The vegetarian crepe, ricotta ravioli and broccoli salad with bacon were great. My only suggestion is that they replace one of the three or four IPA's with an amber or red beer on tap! Service and atmosphere were... More
