Delicious stew and salad! – I've had lunch at Tina's twice now and both meals were excellent. I had a stew that was absolutely amazing - quite filling, delicious, absolute comfort food. The side salad was great, but a bit too small. My waitress (I think it may have been Tina herself) was very friendly, and I was quite pleased with the price of the meal. Great value for a finicky eater like me. =)
Snooty Snobs – We were new in town, hungry and the place looked inviting from the outside. Once we opened the door though, we were treated like the in-laws. After waiting over 10 minutes to get the hostess's attention, she sneered at us and asked if we had reservations even though the majority of tables were empty. She seated us near the side door away from the other diners. When we looked at the menus and saw the high prices, we decided to exit via that side door. We were not going to pay up the _____ to get the royal treatment!
Great Spot on the way to the coast – Stopped by Tina's on our way to the coast and had a great time. Our server was charming and attentive and the wine list was very impressive. The meal was well cooked, the lamb chop was perfect and dessert was to die for. Will be making this a regular stop during our trips to the beach!
Tinahhh...I don't think so – The disappointing nature of our dining experience at Tina's compelled us to write our first review ever. Upon entering, our "host" seated us promptly, with little more than a nod to acknowledge our arrival. By all appearances the menu seemed to provide a tasteful variety of options which we expected, considering the price tag. The restaurant's wine list was, in hindsight, its most impressive offering. The waitress, after stammering out a hasty and forced greeting, continued a theme of unwelcome arrogance by the staff. No recommendations or menu highlights were offered. The salmon spring roll appetizer was delicious. The rabbit dish coupled with greens and mashed potatoes, as well as the seared duck breast complete with (burnt) pumpkin corn bread, proved to be lacking in flavor. As our waitress sat 10 ft. away counting her money, our water glasses sat empty for the duration of our meal. This proved to compromise not only our attempt at a romantic evening but also an otherwise perfect weekend getaway. Sorry to have troubled you with our patronage, Tina's...we won't be bothering you again.
Do you like oxidized green duck pate? – We dont!
Weird server, potato leek soup that was thick as oatmeal, As delicate as skate wing is, why coat it in 1/2" thick plaster of breading and deep fry it, it said sauteed on the menu. Many items on the menu dont come across on the plate. What the hell is a cheddar cheese noodle cake? An obvious utilization of leftover overcooked pasta cooked in a pan and reheated till tough and chewy...mmmmm ;-)
Great Food, Great Wine – I, by chance stopped at Tina's for dinner one night and after dinner I knew that I would be coming back. The atmosphere was beautiful, quiet music in the background and a cozy feeling. My waiter was very knowledgeable about what wines go well with what and friendly. The lambchop I had was perfectly done and the dessert was to die for. They sell many local wines and have a varied selection so you don't feel limited. The service was amazing and so was the food. It was one of my best dining experiences and I plan on going back many more times.
A Dundee hotspot for cooing couples, wine-loving tourists and ornery winemakers. – In Short
Once a shoebox of a restaurant, David and Tina Bergen have created a much grander affair. The handsome wood bar in the entry gives way to a comfortable dining room separated by an open fireplace. The menu features classic European cuisine as well as inventive dishes such as salmon spring rolls with a hazelnut dip reminiscent of Thai peanut sauce. Pristine Pacific bluefin tuna is served beautifully rare over a tomato piperade.
Don't Believe the Hype – Tina's is decent restaurant, but it is not one of the best in Oregon. I think because it is in Dundee, a lot is forgiven. In France, Guide Michelin does not forgive things just because a restaurant is rurally located. It is expensive, it is a tightly packed room, there is no music playing, and my lamb was overcooked! While the server was knowledgeable, we rarely saw her. Great service does not mean taking the order, dropping off the food, and delivering the check. On another occaision I experienced arrogant attitudes from the staff. I'm not saying I'll never go back, I'm just tired of hearing the hype.
A Night for Everyone – A cozy restaurant with a French-Northwest cusine and a plethora of local wines. Quiant and personal while elegant, the wait staff is friendly and professional. The chefs perfectly prepare the meal, while you enjoy great conversations with your friends over glasses of local wine.
