    The freshest ingredients, often from the chef's garden, the unique flavor combinations and presentation of appetizers and entrees, and the impeccable service make this a favorite restaurant for special occasions. Our son who is visiting from Paris said it is comparable to the finest French restaurants. As the evening progressed an all-male party of eight grew louder, but this is the firs and only time there has ever been a noise problem. Consistently good food, attentive service and lovely view.

    The servers were very attentive and professional doing a good job of pacing and of being personable without being intrusive. Most of the food was excellent and very well prepared. My only issue was the smoke flavoring from the wood they use on their grill. It imparted a bitter taste that overwhelmed the vegetables and was in my opinion was too much even for the beef I ordered. I checked the box for "yes I would recommend" but I would tell them to avoid anything grilled.

    As always the Jory Restaurant at the Allison Inn did not disappoint. It is a true gem in the heart of Newberg and a joy to dine there. The birthday lunch we enjoyed was superb and the service outstanding. It is a wonderful treat to dine on special occasions at the Jory and will return again for our next special event!

    The Alison is just gorgeous. Dining outdoors at the Jory felt like being in France. Food is thoughtful, organic cuisine. A lot of the produce and herbs actually grown on site. Pricey but worth it. Walk around the hotel after to get glimpses of their wonderful art collection with original paintings by Oregon artists.

    My wife and I had our anniversary lunch at Jory on the patio and it did not disappoint. The food was great....I would say that Jory's version of paella was the best I've had in a while! Jory is at a beautiful resort with great landscaping and has very professional, attentive & friendly staff. We will definitely be coming back to Jory in the future!

    The view is great. The wine by the glass is limited for whites and somewhat pricey. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. The chef really likes tarragon and red onion, which was more flavor than needed for the tuna.

  • The best meal you may ever eat.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/13/2014
    The atmosphere is formal yet relaxed, an open kitchen with wood burning fire sets the scene. The chef's menu is simple in appearance yet the food is delightlfully complex and balanced. The ingredients are amazing; many of which grown right at the property and an apparent emphasis on locally sourced and organic meats and fish. I am not a foodie at heart but I appreciate great food with polarizing and complimentary flavors. My wife is, however, a series food enthusiast and we agree that we had the best meal of our lives at Jory. The staff is so polite and friendly beginning with the valet parking all the way through the experience. We cannot wait to return for another special occasion.

    We arrived five minutes early for our reservation and were told "we're just putting the finishing touches on you table so it will be a few minutes before you can be seated." Seven minutes later our party of two was seated at a table for four. Then staff came and removed the extra place settings. It was the best spot in the place, but I didn't appreciate the maitre'D using an untrue excuse for the delay in seating us. I had initially requested a booth, but was thrilled with the view from my table. After that, it was five star all the way!

    Dined here for dinner on a Wednesday night and had a great meal with excellent service. I had the duck which was excellent, but would order the wagyu steak next time as this must be their specialty. They have a huge open grill and burn different types of wood for the steaks. The grilling process produces some dramatic flare ups. Impressive wine list as well.

    I had the pork loin. It was a little dry (slightly overlooked) and was drowning in a corn mash. I had to search thru the mash to find the sunken slices of pork. My wife had the lamb chop. So rare she couldn't eat it when getting close to the bone. When paying premium prices, we expect a premium product.

    We dined at Jory for Sunday Brunch and very much enjoyed our meal. We were there at 12:30 and sat on the patio. On this beautiful day and at this time of the day, we were the only ones seated on the patio so, it was relaxing and very pleasant. The service, as always, was very professional and efficient. It almost feels a bit too elegant for the location and for brunch but I'd rather it be this way than off handed and sloppy. We had a salad to share between the 3 of us (I don't recall the actual ingredients of the salad and it's not listed on the oline menu), we also tried the paella, one of the hash dishes and the lemon pancakes served with fresh blueberries. All of the food was wonderfuly prepared and full of flavor.

    Simple salads to start turned exceptional with local ingredients matched well. My main was halibut with over a grain base with fiddle heads and other local vegs cooked crispy but not raw. Lovely. Partner had rabbit with risotto and was thrilled. All accompanied with a Pinot recommended by Mark to finish it off. Small neg- halibut was slightly overdone, just beyond flakey. This is a restaurant for those who enjoy trying standard raw materials prepared in an exquisite way.

    I have been to the Allison numerous times. Every time is a 5 star experience except for this one???? Our server was great but her help was unfriendly, and made a lot of mistakes which no one cares but they acted as if their mistakes were our fault? Bizarre! We had to order 4 bottles of wine before one was available and asked 3 times for gluten free bread and I didn't get it until almost the end of the meal and it was horrible. Close to burnt and just bad. We were in the private dining room so that was beautiful. But many of us have been there a lot and all felt like this time was just "off". Not sure what happened. I/we will still go back, this was just a strange experience.

    The food was excellent, if a little pretentious. The presentation was gorgeous but one wondered if the chef actually tasted the food. Pea soup flavor speaks for itself - perhaps a little pop of seasoning - mint? but it s overwhelmed with the crab and not well seasoned. Too much attention to corporate and not individuals - such excellent and polished service deserves to be backed up with happy diners. Smiles are always good and welcomed, there was no engagement with the staff.

    First time to visit Jory Restaurant at the Allison Inn…service was disjointed. Specifically asked if the smoked chicken salad was white meat chicken and was told it was. It was not. All dark meat, which I know some prefer but had I been given the correct information, I would have ordered something else. Thing seemed off in general. Will try again at some point.
