Horrible food and service. I made my family waffles when we got home, that is how bad the food was; No one ate it.

The restaurant looks impressive, but as we approached the door I noticed hardly anyone in it. It was 7:00 on a Friday

I had originally posted this REVIEW on another website (y.e.l.p). My review of this nice local West Linn establishment was removed and I felt the owners of 503 should know they did a great job early June, 2010.
The other site removes all reviews they aren't paid for, essentially.

***503:

It isn't every day I am surprised, but 503 did just that!

We started with the calamari, which was crisp on the outside and tender inside, served with a lime, cilantro sauce and it was incredibly tasty and the sauce was light and refreshing. Great balance. Each table received an hors d'?uvre of pate' on toast points with mustard and pickle, this was incredible! One of the best pate's I have ever sampled (and I dabble in pate often)! Obviously, made on site with pride.

For our mains, we had the pork shoulder (boneless) served with rice and wilted spinach greens. Savory, perfectly seasoned, we would re-order this upon a return visit. We also had the kobe beef chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and foie gras gravy. Rich and flavorful, this did not disappoint. Steak was a bit tough, but it was an actual steak that was breaded and fried, with amazing flavors, it disappeared with help of my dining companion!

The service was on the tragic side, initially. We waited 10 minutes for a drink and even longer to order, but they were uncharacteristically busy per our server. Our entress came out slow, but it was well worth any additional wait. Part way through, we were given another server and she corrected any misgivings we had.

All and all, a wonderful meal in the burbs. The food is comparable to any NE/SE or downtown/Pearl restaurant chef could produce! I'd like to add, the portions were moderate to large and prices were very affordable for the super delish food! It seems they made some corrections to the prior issues mentioned in previous reviews regarding price and food quality.

Pros: Quality food, service and chef's ability to make accommodati

Cons: Slightly over priced.

We used to go here quite a lot. Good food, nice atmosphere and reasonably priced. Recently they changed chefs and it has gone down hill ever sense. The food has become greasy and lacks flavor. Sure they have all the bells and whistles of a great menu but that is about it. I think the menu would have tasted better than our meal. Another one bites the dust in West Linn which is a shame this one had such great promise. BRING back the old chef before you have to close your doors!

Pros: Drinks, staff

Cons: flavor .. wheres the flavor?

Our dinner was extremely disappointing especially for the price. We started with risotto and fried oysters. The risotto was swimming in grease and under cooked. The oysters were over cooked and the bowl of oysters and fries dripping in grease. We then had scallops and trout. The trout was covered with 1/3 cup of MAYO dumped on top, underneath that was a layer of potatoes and then hidden in the mess it was still covered in partially cooked skin. The scallops were under cooked and didn't have much flavor.

In the end we ended up ordering the dessert to go since we wanted to leave but I had a craving for chocolate. When I got home I took a bite of the "12 layer chocolate cake" and had NO FLAVOR. I got more flavor from a one of those weight watchers low calorie high perservative chocolate cake bars. I ended up throwing it away and driving out for a scoop of ice cream.

The menu is up on all the latest trends; truffle oil, fancy cheeses, ect. But truffles won't make a pigs ear a silk purse.

Took out of town guests and did not know what to expect on our first visit, but everyone raved about the flavor of their dishes. The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful with diet restrictions and each dish was delicious. Will definitely return!

Five 0 Three is a new restaurant in West Linn that I found better than expected. The lunch menu had a lot to offer, and my meal was very good. It's has a great little bar, and a nice patio area to sit at during the summer months. I'd meaning to go there for quite some time, I'm gald I did, and I will definitely go back again.

This restaurant is as stylish and the food is as good if not better than any place in the Pearl or downtown. The food is wonderful and the wine list is also stellar. The service is professional as well. I only hope that the people in W.Linn and Lake Oswego realize what a gem they have here and will frequent this establishment. There has never been a restaurant as good in the burbs as this restaurant is.

In Short
This suburban hotspot sets a contemporary mood in a light-filled dining room framed by a slate-rock wall and overstuffed banquettes. In back, a chefs counter gives way to the restaurant's open kitchen where chefs craft…
