Amazing experience here!. This place is truly wonderful, we enjoyed the old world charm of this beautiful home now converted into a Restaurant. We were greeted by the owner who was very sweet, and our server Jason was possibly one of the best waiter's in Portland. The food was truly spectacular and was paired with an excellent pinot noir, we were also given a tour of the place which made our evening even that more special. I will definitely come back here again, it was a very memorable, fun experience!
Better service and food at McDonalds!.
I want to start off saying, this place does have a unique setting and beautiful view. However, it is owned by the wrong person! It needs someone that can actually talk to people and not bark at them. She is rude and confrontational if there is anything you "don't" like about your service or meal. DON'T DARE give her suggestions or ask for something different!
The food is wayyyyy overpriced and not very good tasting. IT is tolerable though. The thing that is not tolerable is the service, and the owner's mentality!
DON"T DO IT! Save your money, and your dignity!
The most generous soul around.
Could I be gushing with thanks? Yeah.. you could say that.
My first experience with Cristiana, the owner of Amadeus Manor, was over the phone. Her thick accent and enthusiam for meeting me left me wondering if this was a put on, Nobody is that nice.Nobody is this accommodating. For several weeks prior, I had been trying to hunt down an intimate, yet affordable venue to have my wedding and small reception. I had been hit hard with the lack of enthusiasm most venues demonstrated after telling them it was a small affair, with maybe 50 guests in attendance. Cristiana was a completely different experience altogether. She made every detail of our needs as though they were her own. She invited us to join her for a meet and greet on a lazy sunday afternoon. She had just finished serving her brunch crowd, and had barely time to relax when this leery couple comes strolling into the almost vacant restaurant. She was having her quiet time before the dinner crowd came in.
Without hesitation, she invited us in, and seated us at a table overlooking the Wilamette river,excused herself and within minutes cmae to the table with a beautiful vase full of fresh flowers from her garden. She sat with us, asking us over and over if she could get us someting to drink, maybe try some schnitzel? So after her insisting, we were delighted to be the guests of the hour, being treated to a glass of wine and samplings of her best fare. When we offerred to pay, as no bill was presented, she scoffed at the gesture and hugged us both and asked if we would come back again to have brunch and bring the parents along. After promising to come back the next weekend and finalize the wedding plans, she thanked us profusely and sent us home with a bottle of the bubbly to celebrate the upcoming nuptuals, that she would be putting together for us in less than a month.
The next week we came for the brunch and brought along my fiance's parents. The place was very busy, and yet her instant recognition of us made us feel right at home. She sat with us, laughed with us, fed us, brought out some albums of past weddings she put together. She shared all that she had with us, while stepping away and greeting her other guests with such kindness and warmth.
When we left that day, everyone was hugging and laughing and looking forward to the day we would marry at her special peice of heaven.
When I arrived to Amadeus Manor on the day of my wedding, everything was more than I had anticipated. Fthe layout of the appetizers dowm to the buffet after the ceremony the food was spectacular. But what made the event even more special for me was that I knew in my heart she cared about our small group of friends and family. She greeted everyone and she made sure every detail was, as she would say,"Perfect!"
Have a unique experience and find yourself wondering if you just stepped back in time where people count and food taste like it's made with love. Treat yourself to the hospitality and care that Cristiana and her staff have waiting for you. I will never regret picking up that phone and meeting her for the first time.
Best Schnitizel in Portland Area. My husbankd and I celebrated our first year anniversary here. We wanted a special and intimate atmosphere. He called ahead to ensure the chef made our favorite entrees. We savored each bite of the wonderful schnitizel as we remembered our honeymoon in Vienna. The staff and owner were friendly, outgoing, and engaging. If you are looking to propose or celebrate an anniversary, I would highly recommend Amadeus. Thank you for making our day extra special!!
Disappointed in Mother's Day Brunch. I deliberately selected Amadeus Manor because of its gorgeous setting, and past, positive dining experiences, both at the Manor and at the former Lake Oswego location. My son and his wife joined us from Seattle, and because my daughter-in-in law is a Vegan, I had called ahead and spoke to the owner be sure she would find some adequate choices. Soggy, limp mashed potatoes, and sliced melon and wilted salad didn't seem to live up to my expectations as good choices for her. Since this was a Mother's Day Brunch, I expected more than cold scrambled eggs, bland chicken, ham and tough roast beef as entrees. There wasn't even a fish choice. All the food was presented in the same bland color with no thought to presentation.Since the owner is Austrian, I was expecting some delicious pastries for dessert. Yes, the bread pudding was probably the best part of the meal, but no other choices for a brunch? When we asked for a sugar substitute for our coffee, the waitress could only locate ONE PACKET in the entire restaurant. Obviously, a person who is a diabetic would not want to eat here! The quality of the food; the lack of presentation; the lack of variety of the food, and the extremely slow service did not justify the cost of the brunch. Not even the coffee or orange juice was included in the price. Since Amadeus Manor is such an unusually beautiful location in an historic, European ambiance, it would be wonderful if Ms Poppemeirer would raise the quality of her food to match the quality of her restaurant's locale.
Terrible Mother's Day Brunch.
My family and i were so disappointed with the service, the chairs (old fallen folding chairs!), and the small food choices! We will never go back there again.
I made reservations for 1pm, and when we got there, the waitress (?) was complained to us that "everyone has reservations at 1pm!" and then we asked for a high chair, and she said "everyone wants a high chair!". Very rude. It took them 15 minutes to get us a high chair after several of us asked again and again. There was no silverware at the table. We were leaving by the time someone came to our table to ask if we wanted coffee. And only two dessert options? Overpriced indeed for the service, the chairs and the very small selection of food. The food was good, not excellent. The Best was the Piano Player Lady, which we tipped on our way out!

Almost too angry to write this review... almost. I created an account on Citysearch JUST to write this review. I never have written a review but felt this was just too important. I am only writing this to give warning to any poor sap like me that decides to try this restaurant. I still cannot believe this place can exist and still be in business with what my wife and I experienced here. Made reservation for a window seat, got a back room closet. The waitress was your typical rude high schooler that would rather be out at a rave or something and it showed. We were ignored for what seems to be the standard for this place (20 minutes) then once we finally ordered after having to ask for water twice, it took 2 HOURS to get our meals. Although the food was extremely expensive, it was HORRIFIC. Now here is the scary part... It literally looked like they took the un-eaten leftovers from other plates and put them together on to our plates! There were bits of food items from other items on the menu in our mashed potatoes! there was a small corner of bread that looked like it had a bite out of it at the BOTTOM of my wife's salad! I took ONE bite of the mashed potatoes and got SAND! I almost threw up, and we immediately without further hesitation left the building. There were more things I could list but it would just be redundant to the other bad reviews but this is the gist of what we experienced. If this isn't enough to convince you then I don't know what will
Instant mashed potatoes for $38!!. The food here is atrocious, I couldn't even get mine down. Everything is obviously frozen and then overcooked, and unbelievebly enough - the mashed potato is instant! With the 5 star prices they are charging you wouldn't think they would dare! The oysters were gritty and loaded with sand, the fish smelled bad and was cooked to mush, and our cold drinks were served warm on a very hot day. The plates were chipped and the dining room looked musty and dated - the whole experience was like stepping back in time to the 80's. All of the other customers were senior citizens - I guess because over cooked mush and instant potatoes are o.k. on false teeth.
Our 40th Anniversary.
It was a beautiful evening with a choice of a window seat or a table on the patio. We chose the outside setting and were not disappointed, the view was terrific and we felt like we were in Europe. It was a very special evening and we were not about to rush our dinner and Christina sensed that. From our bread to our spinach salad to the sorbet and then our main course it was magical for us and a night we will long remember. Next time I will take some home as I was stuffed but it was so good. I do not eat cauliflower but I did and it was so delicious!
Thank you for a wonderful evening!
