Taxi between Troutdale and Dinner in Portland?

We will be staying two nights at McMenamins-Edgefield soon and want to meet some friends at Meriwether's Restaurant on NW Vaughn Street in Portland. We'll have a car but prefer not to drive. Is it possible to take a taxi and about how much will it cost?

I don't know how dependable they are, but I found a "taxi-fare+ site that says $14. I would assume (LOL) somewhere between that plus tip or maybe more.

Sorry, I don't think there is one correct answer to your question.

Thanks for the information MrsO. I wish our friends would do the drive to Edgefield to eat with us. We are really looking forward to our trip to Oregon, especially the Columbia River Gorge!

It wouldn't be a long or difficult drive from Edgefield to NW Vaughn. I'm sure traffic on that route would be much less of a hassle than what you find in Atlanta.

As for the $14 taxi fare -- that seems WAY low. From the airport to downtown is quite a bit more than that, and Edgefield is farther east than PDX and NW Vaughn a couple miles from the downtown hotel core. You could fill your gas tank (maybe twice) for the cost of a RT taxi fare.

There is a Black Rabbit Restaurant there. It's nice. But you will enjoy Merriweathers. Maybe they will come get you.

Update -- I checked the TaxiFareFinder website for Portland and it quotes a fare of $56.55 (including tip) for the 17.1-mile trip from McMenamin's Edgefield in Troutdale to Meriweather's on NW Vaughn.

Sounds about right as taxi from PDX to downtown is about $35 (without tip).

$14.00 cab fare did seem too good to be true. We're not worried about traffic or the difficulty of the drive--it's that no one wanted to be the designated driver. We like Oregon wines :)

Whoo! The fare finder I found is way off then. I am sorry but I don't taxi.

I am very *Glad** it got caught.

Maybe they could take you there to eat and you could taxi home. That would save you a ton.
