I frequent Bethany's Table when I'm in Portland visiting my dad who lives nearby. This particular area of Portland/Beaverton is dominated by chains, so I especially appreciate Bethany's Table. The menu is innovative and the food is prepared with care. Sometimes my dad and I will just get the Pantry Board (prosciutto wrapped dates!) and a glass of wine and that's a lovely light meal. The only downside we've experienced is the restaurant can get quite loud, especially since they often have large tables of business groups. But other than that it's a great option in an otherwise challenged dining district.

Once agin we enjoyed a delicious meal. I think they do the best halibut in town. They also made a 51st anniversary very memorable. Looking forward to our next visit.

Bethany’s Table is located in the middle of the village of quaint Bethany in metro Portland. The community is a nice place to spend some time and explore the shops and Bethany’s Table fits right in. This is an upscale Bistro with a complete Farm to Table menu selection of locally sourced meats and vegetables. Our party enjoyed Halibut, top sirloin, chicken Marsala and risotto. We also enjoyed a great berries, cream and shortcake dessert. Very capable service makes dining there a pleasure. They have a nice selection of Oregon wines as well as those from further afield.

I had never been to Bethany's Table before and had a business meeting there for lunch. Prices were very reasonable and a surprisingly excellent array of choices (entrees, sandwiches, salads, pasta and more). First, the handmade bread is spectacular! Crusty and served with salted butter. YUM. I loved the Caesar salad appetizer followed by Vongole. The dessert was a butterscotch pudding with homemade peanut brittle. One of the best desserts I've ever tasted. I loved this restaurant so much that I went back for dinner. Steak bites with horseradish, then the bone-in porkchop with succulent fresh vegetables..all perfectly seasoned and cooked. The food is the perfect blend of classic choices, elegant gourmet, and delicious. The owners/chefs (Janet and David) are terrific. I would go back again and again and again.

Service was excellent. We arrived early for our reservation and were cheerfully seated. The wine selection was very good, and so was the Oregon Pinot Noir and Pino Gris I selected later. Loved my sherry chicken mousse! I give that top ratings. However, I can't say the same for the seafood pasta. The crab was in small pieces, difficult to find. And I had looked forward to the Meyer lemon and cream sauce, but I was severely disappointed. The sauce, and thick cap of cheese, dominated the pasta to the point of being pervasive. I ate what I could, and when the waitress asked me what was wrong, I told her, but did not really complain. It was, after all, my call based on my taste preference. However, she did give me credit for the dish, even though I ate about 1/4 of it. Will I return? Probably.
BTW, the bread they served was the best I've had since I left Naples, Italy 23 years ago. They sell it by the loaf if you order in advance. I'm going to do that for sure!
