Editorial review from Citysearch 7/22/2012

Crooked as a dog's hind leg...AND RUDE! The owner thinks of life as being really grubby and that's how he treats everyone. Lot's of distracting advertising- you're running a delivery service, not cooking the meals- NO appeal when they screw up. The have obviously planted reviews everywhere. Read them closely. It's either not how people really talk or about the restaurant, not the delivery service. more

Years of Great Service and Great Food 12/30/2010

When I started using the services of What?s for Dinner years ago?I thought of it as a way to ?treat? myself to a night of no cooking or having to stop by the grocery store on the way home from a long day at work?But now I experience it as a very-very important part of what gives healthy balance to my life and career. The convenience is one important factor but the quality of healthy food at an economical price and the genuine commitment of Jim Crabtree and his staff makes having What?s For Dinner as a reliable service and support not just a ?treat? but a solid contribution to the quality of my life?.in a very difficult economy. There have been times when I have made a mistake in my order or there has been some problem and Jim has taken the extra effort with his great sense of humor to remedy the situation to my complete satisfaction. I gladly share the gift of this quality service with my friends and family. more

Better than the best! 12/22/2010

Hair loss can start with a few extra hairs in the sink or in your comb. Later, it can progress to a bare scalp. more

The food arrives when promised as promised. l have used this service weekly for over a year. I cannot imagine anyone being dissastified. more

RUDE RUDE RUDE!!! 12/8/2010

The owner of this establishment is extremely rude and unprofessional. I had participated in the groupon purchase which cost me $35 to buy food from them and the owner refused to cash it in despite me trying to place the order before the end of the business day of the groupon expiring. The store had been closed for 3 days prior to the expiration date therefore making redeeming the groupon impossible during those last few days. His statement to me was ""What - do you expect me to just run down and open the store just for you????"" Even though I had said nothing of the sort to indicate that I wanted him to do this- I just asked him to redeem the groupon according to the terms. Instead he refused, took my money and gave me nothing in return but actually yelling at me. I know I am not the only one who had this same experience with the groupon and trying to redeem it with this company. I've never had an owner of an establishment treat me with such animosity or lack of concern for my money or having any sort of customer service. more

Quick, Easy and DELICIOUS! 11/15/2010

What?s For Dinner has never disappointed. My orders are always delivered on time and exactly how they were order. Not only does the food taste better but it is healthier (and cheaper!) than eating out. The staff at What?s for Dinner is professional and well versed in all areas of food. I would recommend What?s For Dinner to anyone! Thank you Chef Jim! Keep up the great cooking! more

Nothing but Fantastic! 11/7/2010

Gourmet meals that work perfectly for a family of five. I can conveniently order online and have the meals delivered to my front door or I can pick them up. When life gets a little too busy and I haven't placed an order, I just stop by the storefront and select from an assortment of fresh and frozen entrees, sides and desserts. Jim also provides a wonderful catering service. I recently hired him for a party and my guests loved everything with the biggest hits being the beef brushetta, crab won tons and the butternut squash mini tarts. Whether you're looking for the answer to ""What's for dinner?"" or ""Who's catering my next party?"" you now know. more

A delicious lifesaver in more ways than one! 11/1/2010

I've been using What's for Dinner for several years now. The food is absolutely delicious and we have added new tastes and textures to our dinner table as well. My husband's favorite is the chicken chimi's. I have been very pleased with everything I have ordered. more

WOW......Wonderful 10/31/2010

WOW...... I just found this wonderful service that works so well for us working moms. This place is called Whats for Dinner, you can order online and have it delivered to your home or you can just stop on your way home and pick it up at the kitchen. This is so easy the food is already prepared, packaged and frozen just ready for you oven. I can throw one in the oven and make a salad and have a great dinner in no time. When I pick up my order I can pick up a quick desert that can be warmed in the oven while we eat or just get something fresh from the deli/desert counter. I will make this a treat for myself because it works so well with my family. Thanks to the chef! more

Great Support For Our Family 10/24/2010

I remember when our kids were toddlers and you used to come into our home and cook for us. Our kids are now in college. We are thankful that you have been available to supply all the great meals for us over the years. You have consistently delivered on your promises, and your communication has always been excellent.

Great find!!!! 6/23/2010

Tucked away in Sellwood lies the answer to the question I hear several times a day from my growing boys.... ""What's for dinner?"" As a professional working woman, I do not always have an answer without opening the fridge and staring in, and that does not always produce a good answer.... Enter: What's For Dinner?! This place in a dream. Jim is absolutely lovely and delivers warm and personable service If that is not enough, the food is great! Wholesome, not expensive, and, best of all, effortless. I have recommended him to several friends and they are thrilled too. This place will be a regular stop for me in the neighborhood. Pros: Lovely, friendly, personal service and great food Cons: what's not to like? more

Bland food and poor customer service 3/2/2010

I found this place via Groupon. Although my total was just over $70 (and the Groupon was $70), their system charged me $70. It took 3 days, an email, and 2 phone messages to hear back and get it corrected. more

I'm In Love 8/5/2008

Happy Customer 8/4/2008

I just placed my second order with WFD. We are very happy customers! We love your service. I don't know how we ever lived without it. And the food is delicious! more

Great Find 2/15/2008

It was nice to meet you today and thank you for delivering food to our house. We tried your chocolate torte and lasagna tonight and I am kicking myself for not finding you sooner! Now I am going to have some stiff competition on the nights that I choose to cook:) more

Fantastic food, service and convenience right to your front door 1/31/2008

Thanks to my very kind co-workers and a necessary knee surgery, I was introduced to this fabulous business through a gift certificate. I was thrilled, of course, but I wondered if the food would be good and how much preparation it would require. Well, the food is fantastic! There is a great selection of entrees and side dishes to choose from on the nicely designed and user-friendly website. Some items are comfort food, some are gourmet, and some are 'sounds fun to make but I probably wouldn't take the time to buy all the ingredients and do all the work'. You know, the perfect mix. Besides the food being great, I think there are two things that really set 'What's for Dinner?' apart from seemingly similar businesses. First, the completed meals are delivered right to your front door. Not home? Jim will put them in the cooler you leave by the front door. Second, the food is already prepared and in the baking dish. My husband was the chef while I was recovering and I asked him what additional steps he had to take to prepare everything. ""Well, the most difficult thing I had to do was brush milk on the Chimichangas."" In other words, you take off the lid with the cooking instructions, sometimes cover with foil (or brush milk on the Chimichangas!), and pop it into the oven. A few years ago, I tried one of the meal preparation businesses. They put all the raw ingredients together for me, but I had to take my cooler and pick everything up at their business, each dinner was separated into multiple plastic bags, and there were always quite a few preparation steps which meant dirtying lots of pots and pans. And, the quality and taste of the food wasn't consistent. So, for the same amount of money (yes, the SAME amount of money), I can get better food, better service and a lot more convenience with 'What's for Dinner?'. This is truly completed gourmet food right to your front door. I will continue to spoil myself and my family with this service even when the knee is healed! more

Fantastic food & service! 1/20/2008

What's For Dinner is a godsend! The food is fantastic - delicious, gourmet meals that are affordable and generous regarding portions. Jim is a delight and his service is amazing. Quality, quantity and charm will keep us a long-term customer! more

ONE OF THE BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!! 1/13/2008

I just wanted you to know that your Breakfast Casserole was a major favorite at our house for the holidays. When will we see that on the menu again? It would be great for dinner too. more

Can't Wait to Order Again 12/31/2007
