My wife's fish was very nice- my schnitzel was a bit tough, but, tasty
The ceasar was excellent!

Great Dining Experience
This was our first time as a guest here. Everything was great. We will go back and we will--already have--recommend Jackalope to our friends.

First time that we've eaten at Jackalope since they relocated. This was an anniversary dinner, and everything about it was spectacular. Phenomenal food, excellent wine recommendation, great service, and dining in the heated courtyard added to the overall experience as well. Highly recommended.

This was one of the best dining experiences ever. The food, atmosphere and service were fabulous! Our waiter, Clayton, was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. A delightful evening.

Very good food, average service
All in all, the quality of the food overshadowed the poor service and poor ambiance. The food was creative and fresh. The service was slow and spotty...at best. The atmosphere in the restaurant was somewhat sterile with a hint of homemade decoration and overbearing fluorescent lighting.

We were looking for a place to have our anniversary dinner in Bend and this was a great pick. Food was delicious and wait-staff was excellent. Really enjoyed our meal and experience!

Too Yummy for words...
They have brought back pheasant and mushroom sausage for the month of October. What a great blend of flavors and such a light texture for a sausage. The sauce is incredible. I have been here three times this past week. Ok, so my third time I ordered the Osso Bucco Romano. I thought having the sausage 3 times in one week was a little over indulgent, haha! Anyway it was a great idea and I was just as pleased.

Boneyard at Jackalope
The Brew Master Dinner featuring Tony Lawrence of Boneyard Beer was great fun. 5 courses paired with 5 beers. Tony filled in each course with information about the accompanying beer. Seating was family style and my daughter and I met some great people. Tim Garling stopped by often to answer questions about the very unique cuisine. Tony also stopped by to address individual questions the home brewers (3 at our table) had. Chef Garling is planning a lot more fun nights this winter. I hope I will be able to attend another themed dinner. BTW this was very affordable especially considering the whole thing took about 3 hours. If you like to take your time to eat and chat, definitely give one of Chef Garling's themed evenings a try!

best place we know of
We have enjoyed Jackalope Grill now 3 times...and each time we left feeling like it was even better. We take advantage of the full bar ( moscow mule is my favorite) and enjoy the variety of schnitzel they have had in October. All year round they do offer Jager Schnitzel which is superb.....the meat is lean and tender and the mushroom sauce is truly amazing. The service is good if a bit slow at times ...it seems they might be a bit short staffed ? The prices are higher than some restaruants we enjoy, but we certainly find it worth it.....

Nice celebration dinner
I took my mom to Jackalope Grill to celebrate her retirement. The food was good and the service excellent. The portions are large and flavorful. They brought my mom dessert to help celebrate. I wish they had fresh brewed iced tea though. Their tea comes from a fountain. In a higher end restaurant, I would expect fresh brewed.

Disappointing a customer
Although the overall was good the entire experience was ruined when we made a special effort to get there for happy hour. After we ordered they explained happy hour was for the bar only. I double checked their website and no mention of "bar only" is made. Their approach to this was "sorry". Change the website or change the policy. This customer was obviously "wrong".

From the refreshing cocktails, excellent service, and the incredible house-made Pheasant and Wild Mushroom Sausage, this was a dinner to remember. Jackalope Grill will definitely be one of our favorite "go-to" restaurants in Bend going forward.

This was our first time (3
This was our first time (3 couples) to Jackalope Grill and we all had a great time! The menu had a variety of gourmet foods to choose from for the meat lovers, seafood lovers and vegetarians! The sour dough bread was nice and hot upon serving, the service impeccable with drinks replenished at all times and the desert scrumptious! Highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions and gatherings. What a lovely place to dine in Bend! Thanks Tim for the wonderful food you create!

For the second year in a row, my wife and I have enjoyed a non traditional Thanksgiving with Tim: no turkey, no gravy, no sweet potatoes, no cranberries... You get the drift. For the second year in a row we have been ecstatic over a real fine dining experience for Thanksgiving Dinner. My wife ordered the jaeger schnitzel which came perfectly prepared and rivaled any such fare in Austria or Bavaria. I selected a fish I had never heard of: Pacific spearfish -- a member of the marlin family far more likely to be found stuffed and hanging on a wall than in a delectable dish. The fish was served on a bed of tasty risotto, and both were cooked to perfection. We plan to repeat the experience next Thanksgiving -- as well as frequent visits between!

We decided to make our first date at a place neither of us had been and although I had been to the old Jackalope, I hadn't visited their new location. The ambience was awesome, quiet - romantic lighting. The food was excellent, we both had the Ciapino and were not disappointed. Wine list was nice and we choose a bottle of Pino Gris I hadn't known before. There was no rush in the service which is what we needed to get to know each other, we stayed atleast 1.5 hours. Our only negative comment would be that we had to wait a couple times to get our water glasses refilled and the restaurant on a Sunday evening wasn't that busy to make any excuses for that, Perfect otherwise!

A trip to Bend would not be complete without dining at Jackalope. The new small plate menu items are also awesome and offer a chance to try many different , delicious and unique items. You must try the mussels and stuffed mushroom caps and dip your bread in the mussel sauce.The new location has very private and quiet outside dining - another treat.

Our Favorite Restaurant in Bend
Charming, romantic restaurant with great food and atmosphere. We celebrated our wedding anniversary there and it was the perfect evening! But don't wait for a special occasion - this is now our go-to place to have a great meal and feel pampered. The service was very good and I loved dining al fresco in the restaurant's own herb garden. The prices were reasonable. Can't wait to return!
