Votum Restaurant maintains a singular vision –thoughtfully presented food and wine in an intimate, inviting environment. Ours is a cuisine of anticipation and release.  We tell a story of place and time, bringing the ocean to the plate and the world to the glass. Firmly rooted in the tradition of contemporary haute cuisine, we are constrained only by the seasons.

 

The degustation menu is seafood forward, featuring the bounty of the Columbia River Gorge, the Pacific Northwest, and the world.  The offerings are purposeful –each course a coherent gesture, each meal a complete story.  

Our wine cellar contains classic bottles from the old and new world, as well as a selection of interesting wines from the Columbia Gorge AVA.  A suggested beverage pairing allows the guest to experience wine as a matched component of the gustatory whole. 

 

Votum: a cuisine of a lifetime.
