I had a GREAT time., An Eventective User from Portland, OR

The Northstar Ballroom is pretty much impossible to miss. The space is gorgeous, elegant and modern with plenty of windows throughout, high ceilings and careful attention to the interior design. The staff is professional without being stuffy and the bus boys know the menu well enough to make some suggestions as well, in a more relaxed kind of conversation than you get with your server. We started with two glasses of wine. A Love and Squalor Riesling and a Domino IV ""Spellbound"" Shiraz. I believe they were priced $9 and $11 respectively, per glass. The Shiraz reminded me of a drier version of my favorite wine (Boarding Pass). Both were fantastic and quickly noted in phones for bottle searches later on. The bus boy told us his favorite dish was the scallops (Alaskan Scallops, Cauliflower, American Caviar, Cauliflower Puree, Caper Relish) which were available in a small plate ($11) if we had our eye on entrees. So we ordered up a small plate and they were incredible. Really flavorful, not over salted. I don't think I'd order a full plate of them just because I'd still be hungry afterward but they were a great starter. Entrees came out after a little bit of a wait which included the Pan Roasted Duck Breast with brussel sprouts, pureed pumpkin and chunks of bacon ($20) and the Anderson Ranch Lamb Sirloin, Pan Fried Rillet, Walla Walla Onions, Turnips, Potato Puree. ($22) Good God. Those two dishes were some of the most incredible food I've eaten in awhile. I only had a few bites of the duck plate but it was definitely flavorful. My lamb dish was -perfectly- cooked at a medium rare with a pink center and was definitely a melt-in-the-mouth cut of meat. Nothing on the plate was too salty or overdone. All perfect. From my perspective, there was absolutely nothing wrong with that meal from start to finish. Two glasses of wine, one small plate starter and two entrees came out to $70 even. Hardly a high price for the atmosphere and how much quality food was involved. As for a dress code, they're pretty casual about it. With the hotel next door they have to assume guests are coming over in more casual clothes than might be expected in a restaurant like this. You could totally get away with jeans and t-shirt in here, but why would you want to? Class it up a bit to meet the restaurant halfway. Turn it into a date night with cocktails afterward somewhere else. You really can't go wrong. The Northstar Ballroom is a great place for a meeting or party. It was fantastic from start to finish.
