It's not just the cuisine that's out of this world, this Columbia Gorge institution is of another time and place, surrounded by 7 acres of lush English-style gardens that gracefully frame its multitude of stone terraces and trickling fountains. There's a petanque (lawn bowling) court for quick predinner activity, and music on Wednesday nights in summer draws a full house. Each of the four dining rooms in the restored 1898 home has a distinct personality, from cozy
to verdant to elegant, but the tiered patio is where summer diners gather. The kitchen tends toward the traditional side, specializing in classics like steak Diane and filet mignon. Just when you think your meal is complete, along comes the Flaming Bread Pudding.
