Amadeus Manor used to be Fernwood Inn. The restaurant is in an old chateau style home with beautiful woods and stone interior. The view of the river is wonderful. A little on the pricey side but the food is fantastic. Just meandering around the Manor is worth it.

Amadeus is situated in a beautiful old house in Milwaukie that is fun to meander around. Lots of little nooks and crannies that make for a cozy or intimate meal. While everyone in our group enjoyed the setting immensely, we were disappointed in the greasy food. And we could hear a woman berating someone in the kitchen even though we were not close to the kitchen. When we asked, our waitress told us it was the owner and that she has a short fuse with the help.

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.

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

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.

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!

WOW!
This was recommended to us by our son and he was right. Very cozy, Great Food, good atmosphere. Pleasant conversation with the host and our waiter. They were always checking on us.
Meat was done perfectly and melted in your mouth. Veggie's were not soggy (over steamed) and just the right snap to them. I usually am not impressed with veggies these were noteworthy. They selected a great oregon rose wine that complimented the food well.
Great view of the Willamette river in spite of the rain and fog. Plenty of parking available just an awkward walk to door. Not a big deal.
I'll be there more often for the sunset dinner. Join us!!

I was very disappointed with this place ! Brunch Menu was @ $22.00 per person; Absolutely NO Service of any kind at all..Very unorganized .. Had to BEG workers for Water or anything needed. Coffee was (Cold) & extra @ $3.00 which should have been included in the Brunch price.
I will not recommend this place to anyone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope the owner reads this...

Pros: Good looking Stone House Restaurant with view.

Cons: Very BAD Service; Expensive for what they offer !

.

The old stone house and the lovely setting transport you to Europe. However, once seated, there was a loud fight in the kitchen with screaming and yelling that could be heard all through the restaurant. It was very unprofessional. At the Sunday Brunch, the ice cream at the buffet was completely melted (was not kept on ice), and did not get refilled in a timely manner. The eggs benedict were not poached but scrambled. The food was nothing special. The servers were stretched beyond their capacity and although they were doing their best, they simply did not have the staff to accomodate the guests. It is a beautiful setting, but neither the food nor the service justify the price.

The delicious food and the kind reception has encouraged us to return many times and to bring our family and friends. Be prepared to relax and enjoy the surroundings of this incomparable mansion overlooking the Willamette River. Yes sometimes because of an unusually busy evening we have waited for our dinner, however, it has always been a memorable repast! It is like enjoying a dinner in Vienna without the long journey.

Like most of these bad reviews, we had a very similar experience. After being forgotten in the first place, the owner apologized and said she thought someone else had taken our order. But then she repeatedly seemed to forget what we had ordered and offered us dessert right after our salads. Then she tried to cover that up by saying some people like to see the dessert menu to plan ahead. She kept forgetting, and we were offered sorbet 3 times after this. Meanwhile, she took away our bread that we hadn't even touched yet, and we weren't served our main course until an hour later! My $39!!! salmon was so fishy and ordinary I only took a few bites (which was about half it was so small) and my husband's steak was covered in a sauce that seemed to be made out of Karo syrup. Another 1/2 hour of waiting after we ate what we could of our dinners, we were finishing off the bread we were still so hungry and then some other waiter came and took our plates (don't do that when someone's mid-bite, even if it is just bread) and the owner was never to be seen again. At 9 the piano player stopped playing and it took someone 10 minutes to realize maybe they should turn some music on. I was charged for 3 glasses of wine even though I only ordered two, and the 2nd one came about half full where it was before and had someone else's lipstick on it. The whole night was so ridiculous I was almost in tears and by then didn't have the strength to try to fight. We thought maybe we were on Candid Camera it was so bad from start to finish. NEVER go here. I wouldn't wish this experience on my worst enemy.

Our friends are regulars at the Amadeus Restaurant and recommended it for our daughter??s upcoming wedding reception, which took place a couple of weeks ago.
Aside from the beautiful, romantic setting our friends and out of town guests raved about the food and all of us were well taken care of by the owner (I think her name was Christina) and her staff.
We highly recommend the Amadeus Manor to anyone to any event, you will not be disappointed.

When I called for reservations, Kristina was effusive in persuading me to book for my husband's birthday! --complimentary champagne, window table, excellent meal, etc etc. When we arrived no one greeted us and after waiting 15 min a server finally tried seating us at a non-window table. I reminded him of what we were promised when we booked and he finally showed us to a lovely table. When he finally came to take our order, I reminded him of the champagne offer and it came right away. Later we got water and bread.

It was obvious only 2 of them were serving the whole room and maybe cooking as well? who knows! Eventually our order was taken and the food was very good! When we finished after a leisurely meal, we would have ordered dessert and coffee but after waiting a half hour for them to return and clear the table we'd lost interest in dessert. We offered our credit card which the owner took. Later the server brought a hand written bill which wasn't itemized and which we couldn't read [without the credit card]. It clearly wasn't correct and the champagne was not complimentary. Sadly by then we just wanted to leave and didn't even have the energy to complain. The whole experience took two hours [no appetizers, no salads, no dessert and no coffee].

That's the second bad experience there [the other was brunch a few years ago. Maybe I'm just a slow learner, but I'll not go there again and I'll certainly not recommend it to friends.

Thank you for making my Daughters Wedding Reception such a memorable Event.
Our out of town Guests were delighted with the Ambiance,
Setting and the View of the Willamette River.
The Food was delicious and presented beautifully.
Owner Christina Poppmeier was very accommodating to all our needs.
The Amadeus Manor is a Place we will revisit and celebrate the Memories year after year.

I had a gift certificate and a coupon for a (supposedly) very lovely restaurant! Finally my husband and I could actually have that romantic date we really needed! I?m no stranger to fine dining but we?re on a tight budget now since the kids.

A perilous parking lot, lip stick on my glass, dust and cobwebs, there was a serious lack of attention just from the beginning. If we?re paying for ?ambiance? perhaps some of the money should go to clean and maintain it??

Their coupon covers one entree listed on the menu: Goulash ? I didn?t come to a fine restaurant for a romantic dinner to eat? Goulash, please! It?s not a 2-fer coupon - its a ?money off? coupon ? quite misleading.

I ordered ?Spinach Mushroom Soup?, a warm cream which tasted like cream-of-mushroom soup blended with spinach. My Entree: ?Seafood Medley? came with 4 shrimp, fish and 2 thin strips of parchment dough. For $27 it should have had some more real seafood, with a parchment bag (not bits).

They only offered us bitter wine and one beer? uh? Austria! It?s beer country, we?re in Portland a beer city. Really?

Also misleading was the generic question: ?Would you like soup or salad?? In most restaurants it COMES with the entree. Not here, the real question is if you ?would you like soup or salad, in addition?? ? Mine was not a $6 soup and my Husband?s was FAR from a $7 salad.

The sorbet looked lovely with flowers around the dish. The waitress said that her daughter picked them from their garden. But it?s October and these flowers aren?t in season. I?m left wondering?? After inspecting it, it looked re-used. Then I?m left wondering about bacteria, pesticides and if it should be anywhere near my food??

Then we discover they won?t honor our gift certificate! The manager said it?s a coupon and of course you can?t use two at once. Gift certificates are the same as cash ? not a coupon, right?

On the other hand, my dinner company was very fun to be with (I took him home). :)

This is exquisite fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Service friendly & attentive, not intrusive or overbearing. Lovely: seated in front of a warm fire, a superb view of the Willamette River under starry sky --boat lights like dancing stars, & stately passage of the Portand Spirit on a night cruise, gloriously aglow. Prices quite reasonable for a Fine Dining menu; food simply amazing --cooked to just that delicate state of perfection, & every plate a work of artistic color and texture. 5 course meal & beverages - only came to $100 (or budget minded could simply order fewer courses). Appetizers: succulent pan-fried oysters lounging on a bed of delicately sliced fruit and greens -- and baked garlic cloves with a savory goat cheese & toasts. Did I mention the warm, fresh-baked bread? Sigh. Crispy salad of varied greens and tongue-tempting house dressing (a "secret recipe" --whom am I to resist mystery?);friend had delectable tomato, basil, & mozzarella cheese. Exquisite pinapple sorbet eased in between salad & entree --Tropical sweet/tart sun caught in softest snowflakes on a spoon! Chicken Cordon Bleu was reportedly delicious --only complaint being we ordered way too much food for her appetite to do it complete justice. True, but enjoyed every bite of Steak Au Poivre Madagascar: New York Strip wonderfully tender and done exactly to my preference --peppercorn cognac demi glace & mango chutneys provided the ultimate flavor enhancement. Flawless whipped potatoes & vegetables of a utopian balance of tenderness & crispness. Desert --regaled with a list of delicacies-- I settled on bread pudding. Sound mundane? The most maddeningly perfect bowl of bread pudding ever tasted! Warm, sweet, moist throughout, each raisin plump and juicy, & topped with heartbreakingly delicious cream. Handwhipped fresh cream. I almost wept. P.S. I was stunned by the nasty virulence of a couple reviews. Everything I was served was pristinely clean, crisply fresh & high quality.

Cons: beware very narrow parking area near entry

Where do I begin. I'm a board member of a local business and a Doctor, Our lovely Admin who is the most detail-oriented, professional and kind-hearted person I have ever met was literally in TEARS over the hell that we endured this evening. I am not exaggerating when I say this was the worst service and food I have EVER had in my entire life. All 13 of us board members just sat there looking at each other in disbelief. We went there for Dinner after our annual Board meeting with the REQUIREMENT and assurance from the owner Kristina that we would be in a PRIVATE room since we would be presenting awards and making speeches and such. Our admin went there the weekend before to check it out because one of our VP's said the service was terrible. Unfortunately for our admin the owner made sure to give her Personal attention on a slow Sunday night. while she was there the owner slipped into the conversation that she had made reservations to someone else for the upstairs room we had reserved, then persuaded us to settle for the basement with repeated assurance that the entire downstairs would be ALL OURS! Well, She LIED. After we arrived she sat a family with noisy children in the room with us. Wilted salad drenched with dressing, the sorbet was melted, the wait for our food was 2 HOURS! they actually tried to serve us DESSERT before the meal (no kidding!). They brought in the steaks en-masse and started handing them out with no regard for HOW they were even ordered (they did offer to cut into them to check how they were done) the dessert torte was spoiled and the bitter wine was OVERPRICED, the leaves and cutouts they used for our plate decorations were obviously re-used and had food stuck on them from previous patrons meals which instantly made us Doctors lose our appetites! I was angry for the pain this restaurant brought onto our poor beloved admin! The owner is too cheap to run a fine restaurant and hopefully will go out of business soon like her other location did!!!

We went there for our anniverary dinner at the end of September. We were seated at 6:30 pm on a Friday evening. I wanted the duck on the menu, but it was already sold out that early in the evening, so I ended up having their salmon. For $36 (just the salmon), it was disappointing - farmed and fishy. Service was extremely slow. They made mistakes several times on our bill - charging us things we didn't order, incorrect amounts on items, forgetting to redeem our coupon. Ambience was good - but it was the only good thing of the evening.

We went Amadeus Manor for Easter Brunch. The first thing I noticed was that the restaurant itself is absolutly charming. The old building has a tremendous amount of character and ambiance. It's wonderfull and has the making of an excellent restaurant. The decore is very nice, pleasant, comfortable and very inviting.

We were escorted to our table and then we proceeded to the brunch buffet line. My expectation was a larger buffet with many more items. My thought was they were going for quality over selection. I was disapointed on some items and pleasantly suprised on other items.

The buffet consisted of sliced french bread and butter, a green salad of mixed greens and slices of tomato and strawberries, mashed potatoes, sauteed zuchini vegetables, sliced ham, scrambled eggs, french toast with syrup, salmon with a nice dry style sauce topping on it, sliced roast beef, and gravy. The desert table had on it delecious bread pudding with a vanilla custard sauce, bananas in a brow sugar glaze, and vanilla ice cream. Where is the fresh fruit and the pastries? They needed at least two more tables to fill out this brunch buffet.

I have eaten here twice. Once for brunch and once for dinner. Both times now the service was non-existant and made the dining experience horrible. The owner does not hire enough staff to even keep coffee on the tables in a brunch. How tough can that be? I cant over state how non-existant the waiting staff is here. I wont be going back a third time.

This could be a real world class restaurant if they would pay attention to details
such as keep the food and correct temperatures, hire a couple of bus boy's, hire a
hostess, hire a waiter for each six or seven tables, put tongs in the sugar cube dish.

So here is how it breaks down. Ambiance is Excellent, Brunch food is average
for quality. Brunch selections were below average, and Service was non-existant.

The dinner food was great. The service was NON-EXISTANT & BAD.

The house and flowers are wonderful but the food, service and price are not always predictable. My husband was not a huge fan after 3 tries.

The Amadeus at the Fernwood has potential it isn?t living up to. The surroundings are lovely. The historic mansion high above the Willamette has huge picture windows offering views of twinkling lights below, an enormous fireplace, original period decor and candle lit table settings with gorgeous, fragrant Casablanca lilies. It is truly lovely. But all goes down hill after that. The food was a disappointment. The salad (fresh greens, no iceburg in sight) and bread (fresh) were fine but the salmon was overcooked with a bland white sauce they referred to as lobster sauce. The roast beef was tough and flavorless. The inexcusable? Instant mashed potatoes. What are they thinking? The dessert was flavorful (pumpkin mousse for me and chocolate torte for my companion) but the portions were so small we barely had more than a taste of each.
Service? The staff?s demeanor and attire were inconsistent with the elegant surroundings. Servers in jeans and T-shirts? The dining room was understaffed with the owner/manager running around in a harried manner clearing plates and taking orders.
It?s a shame that such lovely surrounds can?t be matched with a similar quality of food and service.

Don't be discouraged by the valentine's day review. That day is always hell for everyone in the service industry, and really no indication of an establishment's worth. Our experience was very serene and private, and the restaurant was incredibly attentive to our needs, while allowing us considerable privacy. From our vantage point, we were the only couple in the restaurant, and the experience was nothing short of magical.

Our experience was truly and honestly the most pleasant of any restaurant that I've ever been to. The location and ambiance is incredible, from the view over the river towards downtown to the eloquent interior. The wait staff was genuinely interested in us, and engaged us in conversations about the occasion, our interests, and our careers. When has THAT ever happened? Not once to me, before this.

The menu is varied enough to satisfy anyone's desires, and with as many courses as you want. So, too, is the wine menu - which features wines from at least 6 different countries. We had a wonderful 4-course meal, complete with an excellent wine. And for such an elaborate meal, the pricing was incredibly reasonable. Two 4-course meals and wine, all for under a hundred bucks.

This place is now my number one recommendation for a romantic evening. I know you'll agree.

Pros: Amazing ambiance, versatile menu, genuine wait staff.

Cons: Prices are high, but not any higher than they should be. Not really a con, just an fyi.

I discovered Amadeaus through the Entertainment guide a few years ago. I have had many lovely Sunday Brunches there since. I have taken a number of friends as well who have loved it! The atmosphere is romantic and serene, great view, fresh flowers at the tables, piano in the backround. When it is really busy the service can be a bit slow, but it is an independent business, so I can understand. Wonderful food!

Amadeus in Lake Oswego was one of our favorites. Because it closed, we decided on the Fernwood in Milwaukie for Valentine's Day. The service was so bad, it had the room laughing. After ordering, we were asked 3 more times if we were ready to order. We had to prompt the waitstaff for our appetizer, our wine, and our salad. Our entre arrived 2 hours after we were seated. My lukewarm steak was mediocre, the coffee was cold. For that we paid $75 per person. Valentine's Day must be frantic for a restaurant, but it can't excuse our experience.
