The Excelsior Inn is a restaurant attached to an inn - hence the name. There is both a classy restaurant (white table cloths), serving high-end Italian fare, and a bistro, serving a more traditional Italian menu. However, it seems that you can have either menu in either location - up to you. The lamb was terrific, as was the chicken-bacon... More

About a block from campus, the inn is set back from the street in an older house that reminds me of a modest mansion. It surrounded by gardens so it has peaceful ambiance both inside and out. For my wife's birthday, my daughter and I chose the Excelsior for lunch and were not disappointed. The food was imaginative and very... More

In Eugene to see a concert and the wait staff was very good about making sure we were on time, yet not rushed at all.

Ate here​ for a birthday dinner. Ambiance and decor were very pleasant. Server was very attentive but not intrusive. Seafood appetizer was excellent, hot with excellent seasoning. The lobster main was delicious. The salmon was cooked perfectly but had somewhat meager accompaniment. Good wine, chocolate overload for dessert. This place isn't cheap, but I did feel like I had an... More

This is the place I would choose for a fine dining experience in Eugene. Good Italian food. The chef is really talented. One day he made us a dish that wasn't even on the menu. My friend enjoyed the wine there. My favourite to-go pick is the lamb burger!

Excelsior has never disappointed us and a couple of times it has impressed us. The owner pays attention to what is happening. He grows a lot of the vegetables on his farm. He presents almost-monthly dinners that illustrate the native foods and wines of Italy. There are basically two sides to this restaurant -- one expensive, quiet, and more elegant,... More

We had a birthday celebration on Friday night. Service for our large-ish party of 8 was truly superior. The menu (updated daily) was a delight -- so many good choices that it was hard to decide on just one. ALL of us enjoyed our meal, and we're hard to impress (three in the group own restaurants).

We had a special pre Christmas dinner here because it was supposed to be a special place. It is indeed a lovely venue but that's where specialness ended. We had made weeknight reservation more than a week in advance but were seated in secondary dining area in the bar. There were not even table clothes on the tables in this... More
