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

Don't go here for the food which is not great. Go because it is such a sweet restaurant with lovely outdoor seating during warm weather.

Excelsior was once a gem in Eugene, but no more. I went for Sunday brunch with two friends and found only poor service and terrible food. Too bad.

Because we live Italian food we love Excelsior. We have enjoyed many fine meals and wine here and it is always a treat. The service is excellent, ambiance mellow and proved within reason. Highly recommended for a special night out.

Everything was outstanding and Bret was a great server! Really liked the fruitte mare and the lobster ravioli were wonderful. Lamb shank was huge and flavorful! You can't go wrong here and we'll be back again for sure!!

Historic inn with modern upgrades. Reasonable rates for unique rooms named after composers. Delicious breakfast in attached restaurant and parking included. Restaurant with outdoor patio serves high end Italian cuisine. Friendly and efficient staff. Will stay here again!

We really wanted to love this place. It is so cute. The patio is wonderful. The interior is great but the food....eggs Benedict was not good. We both had it. Both plates had hard eggs that were severely over cooked. Mine had an egg that had a pocket of water. When I broke it the water saturated the bread. Sadly,... More
