We love the Silver Grille. Chef Jeff always has a diverse menu excellently prepared and presented. It is such a small place that reservations are a must! Worth the drive from Portland.

Add this gem to your Bucket listg
Pretty much as good as it gets for a fresh and unique dinning experience. It would be a challenge to find something critical to write about. A must on the Oregon dining bucket list.

Foodie gem in Silverton
Outstanding food, probably the best we had in greater Portland area. The filet minion was out of this world. The place is very small and cozy, the chef takes good care of the guests. Well worth the one hour drive to Silverton. We'll definitely go back.

Wonderful chef-run find
Silver Grill is a small, friendly restaurant on the "other (east)" side of the Willamette Valley, in a charming town called Silverton. While it has a white-tablecloth ambiance, there is no snootiness at all.
Service was excellent and personalized. The chef/waiter/sommelier was happy to describe any dish that you found interesting, what wines would work with it, discuss your tastes and recommend a particular dish or meal, and then to serve it to you with obvious enjoyment. And, oh, yes, the food was great!
Don't get me started on the Creme Brulee. It's been well-documented by another reviewer. And it's all true. Best I've ever had.
A bit small for a large group. I'd go with four or less diners. Two's best of all.

Who would have thought?
My wife and I do a fair bit of traveling and enjoy good food. We never expected to find a place like this anywhere but in a large city. The menu isn't large but it is inventive and the preparation and presentation here is top shelf. The service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. We live in Montana and will come back to Silverton just to eat here, it's that good. It is definitely worth the drive from Portland.

Definitely worth a drive
Chef owned and operated by someone who obviously cares about the dining experience of his customers. He warmly greeted several customers whom he appeared to know, yet also was friendly and helpful to us, who were total strangers from out of town. Overall, our evening at Silver Grille was very enjoyable, and we are looking forward to finding more fun to drive roads heading to Silverton.

What a find!
It was our anniversary, and we wanted to spend the day browsing the shops of Silverton and having dinner there. I didn't know where to eat, so I Googled. There were so many great reviews for the Silver Grille that we booked a table there. The food was really amazing! The service was good, the atmosphere lovely - we will be back, and not just for a special occasion!

I had a lovely dinner including a salad, which I split with my friend. The lamb was tender and very flavorful as were the vegetables. For dessert we shared the rhubarb crisp with basil ice cream, which was the perfect conclusion to a delicious meal.

I Can't Say Enough About This Place
Everything about this restaraunt is wonderful....the menu, service, wine list etc. This is a place I rave about to anyone who will listen. I recommend it highly to anyone that enjoys farm to table dining. We're coming back.....

We 'discovered' the Silver Grille while researching for our trip to Oregon Gardens. All the reviews were exceptional and their menu looked great. We made our reservation for a Friday night, only to find the restaurant was closed for a private event. Jeff, the owner/chef, contacted us immediately to alert us of the problem, and offered to let us into another private event the next night, Saturday. He was hosting a loca-vore dinner requested by his regular patrons. We were in!
The dinner was a set menu of the most delicious fare I've had in recent memory. Everything was local to the Willamette Valley, and fantastic! We couldn't have been happier.
Jeff, his wife Naomi, and our server Austin went way beyond expectations. Thanks guys!

The food is the freshest around. Everything was delicious from the appetizer, to the salad, the main course & the incredible desserts. We enjoyed the food so much that we intend to become regulars...well worth the 50 mile round trip!

It was a great meal and a cozy environment. Pricing was very good for such a wonderful meal cooked under the supervision of a Seasoned chef. It would be hard to find a comparable meal in the Salem area.

Special place for enjoying a meal..
Great service, excellent wine list, owner chef makes this a memorable evening.
Had flowers delivered (as an option), and this made my wife's birthday the best!
The deserts were a work of art, very nicely done!

Great dining spot!
Our experience at the Silver Grille was great!
The meal was delicious, each dish was tasty and reasonably priced.
We also had dessert and it was crazy good (blackberry/chocolate mousse concoction).
Service was great, and we'll definitely be back!

special place, special time
loved it from the moment we arrived, sat in bar area a few minutes until our table was ready -we were early- I'd read great revues in Tripadvisor, so my expectations were high, and we were not disappointed! great table by the window, great waiter and busboy. split a naughty librarian salad-loved the name! Then we had delicious eggplant pate and roasted veggie crostini. corkage only $15 compared to some places, so although I don't like fees, not as bad as it could have been. lamb with roasted veggies that was fantastic, and equally fabulous- the wild mushroom gnocchi. I must say the carrot cake with poached peaches and raspberry jelly was the best cake I think I've ever had! light whipped cream cheese frosting like heaven

A lovely little gem.
A tiny little place (they were FULL on Thursday night, so make a reservation!), warm and inviting. A great seasonal menu, focus on local suppliers, and service that is top notch but very personable and friendly. I love to take friends here.

Small Town, Big Taste
We are never disappointed with the Silver Grille in Silverton, either when we're in the area or making the hour drive just for dinner. This occasion's entree special, cod cheeks in a saffron buerre blanc, was no exception. The fresh sardines were an unusual starter. The salad was fresh, local and simple. Wines affordable. The iced nougat dessert was a gem of a treat -- light, refreshing and unique. Our server was friendly and professional. The small corner booth was perfect for two. For a small, quaint restaurant in small, quaint Silverton, the Silver Grille tries hard to be great and mostly succeeds. Two complaints: they need to offer a much tastier bread with their olive oil and balsamic, and the restaurant is a little too dark.

Small town charm
A charming eatery with fair prices. Wonderful to have dishes with Oregon truffle. A rare treat!

If you want to enjoy a creative and interesting meal; If you want to have a romantic local date night; If you enjoy fine wine at reasonable prices definitely try Silver Grille. The menu is fantastic with something for everyone.

Very Nice Place To Eat
My husband ordered the chicken and I ordered the steak and we shared them. Both were excellent! The steak was cooked just the way I like it - with no pink. The service was also excellent. The only negative thing is that the menu is small. There's not much to choose from. And even though the dessert I ordered was delicious, it wasn't worth $8.00.

This seems to be the best
This seems to be the best restaurant in the area and it is very good. Excellently prepared food, good menu selection, extensive wine list and great service all at reasonable prices. Highly recommended!

A gem in Silverton
Our group of 6 had a 'celebratory' dinner at the Silver Grille in September, and SG scored 6/6 - everyone loved it. My lamb gnocchi entree was terrific and the salads are excellent. We saved room for dessert and we weren't disappointed... crazygood chocolate/poached pear treat. I'll be looking for an excuse to pass through Silverton and the SG again...

Wonderful dining experience
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Silver Grille. The lamb special was prepared to my husband's delight and my polenta with wild mushrooms was simply perfection. We were impressed with the cured meats and pâté made in house and the outstanding wine list. This was a much appreciated flight from the ordinary. We will add Silver Grille to our list of local favorites.

We had one of our greatest meal memories at the Silver Grille. House made cured meats and cheeses were outstanding. The cheese cake with a touch of goat cheese was terrific. This bistro is a northwest treasure....too bad it is so far off the beaten path.
Go to Oregon Gardens, forego their meal offers, enjoy the Gardens and dine at the Silver Grille.
