"Great fine dining, rich decor, elegant yet casual atmosphere, great water view. Two of us for dinner this evening, First, we enjoyed the wonderful salad bar with all the fixings for a salad of your choice. For our entree's, we both chose the grilled salmon wth green beans and rice and added a side of creamed spinach. Our food was well prepared, very tasty, and cooked per our request. Service was excellent, our waiter knew the menu and dish preparation well, and helped with our food selections. There is a nice wine list to choose a selection to complement your dinner. The combination of great food, great ambience, and great service made for a memorable dining experience. Will definitely come back next time in the area."

"Great old Inn, elegant but casual atmosphere. Two of us for lunch today. Nice menu, I chose the Manhatten chowder with mussels and the barbequed Octopus. My partner, the steak salad. Both are meals well prepared, very tasty, and very filling. Service was very good, timely without hovering. Overall, a very enjoyable, relaxing lunch. There was a large private party going on in another part of the restaurant and this did not effect our service. Have eaten at the Logan Inn several times over the years. Always a rewarding experience. Will be back again when in the area."

"Nice restaurant in Red Lion with great river view. Here for lunch this day, nice lunch choices, soup, salads, sandwichs and entrees for those wanter larger portions. Started with the tomato soup, just a hint of spice to add to the great taste, then had the Italian Copa panini, well prepared and tasty. Serveer described menu selections well, available when needed, else let us enjoy our meal. First time eating here, definitely will try again next time in the area. Convenient to I-5 for those traveling north to Washington state."

Marche, located in Eugene, Oregon, opened in August 1998. The restaurant, which seats 80 guests, has an exhibition kitchen featuring a beautiful wood-fired oven. There is also a stylish bar and a large outdoor dining area, covered with awnings and umbrellas and surrounded by a garden of herbs and edible flowers. Marche takes its name from the French word for market – a word that describes our location in the bustling 5th street Market and more importantly, our philosophy of cooking. The menu is based on the foods one would find at a farmer’s market: fresh, seasonal, and regional. Marche is committed to using only those ingredients that are at their best, so our menu evolves as we move through the seasons of the year. Marche also believes in using the highest quality and most healthful ingredients available and to that end use organic, free range, and chemical free products. The culinary technique is French-based: intensely flavored and simply but beautifully presented.

"Nice downtown restaurant, comfortable decor, fine dining. Menu has changed since previous visits, nice selections, but fewer choices, same great food. Great service, server knew menu well, helped with item recommendations. Food well prepared, tasty, nice portion sizes. One entree slight under cooked, though still very tasty and edible. Nice wine list to complement menu offerings. Nice dessert selections, though passed as was full enough with prior appetizer and entree. Have eaten at Marche many times, always consistently good to great meal and overall pleasant dining experience. Will definietly return again and again."

Oregon Electric Station, also know as OES, had first opened on October 15, 1912, headlining local newspapers declaring it to be "The greatest day in the history of Eugene."<br />We are excited to share our love and passion for great food and hospitality while you enjoy the beauty of this historical landmark.<br />Our dishes are inspired by locally sourced organic products and influenced by our culinary experience around the world while our hospitality is expressed through our century old knowledge of the restaurant business. <br />Our desire is that, as it happened on October 15 1912, you will walk out of here saying, “This was the greatest day in the history of my culinary experience” and then say….<br />OH YESSSSS to OES!

"Several vintage railroad cars make up the body of the restaurant, renovated to provide a comfortable, casual atmosphere with upscale dining. An outdoor dining area is also included when weather appropriate. Nice menu selection, food was well prepared, tasty, filling. Nice wine list to complement your meal. Service was very good, server knew menu well, explaining several offerings and helpful order selection. This restaurant long time favorite in Eugene, recently changing ownership. Our first time here since the ownership change and we were very pleased with the changes made and our meal. Definitely will be back."
