The food was terrific. A couple of items were different than I anticipated, but I put aside my expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The service was perfect. The first time I ate here, there was too much service, but they've dialed it back to just the right level.

Our visit to Joel Palmer House was to celebrate my 50th birthday and I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable time! All of the wait staff was so friendly and had a great sense of humor. Of course the food was top notch and served at just the right pace to allow us to enjoy conversation with our friends. We are all planning on the next time to celebrate at Joel Palmer House!

What You'll Get

A romantic dinner by a roaring fire is best enjoyed in a restaurant and not around the neighbor's emblazoned wicker man. Retain your amorous appetite with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of fine dining and wine at the Joel Palmer House in Dayton.

Named one of Portland's top-10 most romantic restaurants by Gayot, the Joel Palmer House fills fine china with globally inspired dishes, which fuse locally produced herbs and vegetables with wild Oregon mushrooms. Amorous eaters take breaks from sweetheart staring contests to thaw benumbed tongues with warm bowls of Joe's wild-mushroom soup, a 75-year-old family recipe that combines the rich essence of pureed suillus mushrooms with creamy crème fraiche ($9). The beef stroganoff, prepared with succulent meat, wild mushrooms, and seasoned rice ($30), pleases palates, and the sautéed sea scallops, served with lotus root, wild mushroom duxelles, and a Creole pinot gris sauce ($32), fill abdominal abysses. Fortify fungus fare with a bottle of locally fermented pinot noir from a sprawling list of Oregon wines and achieve a culinary harmony unseen since the California Raisins dominated the airwaves.

Grandiose columns line the entrance of the Joel Palmer House, the colonial-style landmark in which pioneer, politician, and Dayton-founder Joel Palmer once lived, slept, and perfected the moonwalk. Inside, antique mirrors and charming wall adornments lend the cozy interior an atmosphere of old-timey elegance and intimacy, creating a romantic venue for celebrating an anniversary or popping the question with a plate of diamond-encrusted portobellos.


Eighteen Yelpers give the Joel Palmer House a 3.5-star average rating and Citysearchers give it a three-star average. TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl eyes:
