"Quiet" dinner w/ parents in PDX?

Bit of a goofball request here: need a "quiet" restaurant recommendation on behalf of my hard of hearing dad, who enjoys great food but doesn't do well in louder establishments. We will all be in town visiting for a memorial service on Sunday :-( but are hoping to enjoy a "nice" dinner out together on Sat eve.

My short list so far is below - would be great to know what the decibel level is in the following restaurants... or, if there is another appropriate choice that I've left off the list - would be great to know that as well.

A few places that look promising so far:

Paley's Place
Park Kitchen
Sel Gris
Maybe Clarklewis?

I would also throw Toro Bravo and/or Apizza Scholls into the mix b/c I've heard good things about 'em.... they look like more casual (and I suppose, louder) places though. True?

On a separate note, Dad is a big oyster fan - so was hoping to stop by an oyster bar before dinner. Maybe Ten-01, Southpark, Alberta Street or ???

Many thanks for any tips whatsoever!!!
