OCI Restaurant

Experience Oregon Culinary Institute’s restaurant, where lunch and dinner are prepared and served by culinary students.

oci restaurant

Oregon Culinary Institute offers a unique advantage over other culinary schools in that we have an open-to-the-public fine-dining restaurant, operating five days a week for both lunch and dinner. Under the guidance of chef instructors, students execute a complicated three-course menu for lunch, and a four-course menu for dinner.

Students contribute in menu design; product selection; kitchen, line and dessert production; plate presentation; beverage service; and restaurant management. Our restaurant is our classroom; offering real-world experience to students and customers alike.

Lunch: Three courses, $9, Monday-Friday @ 12pm

Dinner: Four courses, $18, Monday-Friday @ 7:00 pm
