    My wife and I dined at The Oregon Grille this past Saturday. We both ordered Steak with sides of Mushrooms and Mashed Potatoes. The meal arrived without the Mashed Potatoes and after another half hour the waiter informed us of a problem with our order and asked if we wanted to cancel the Mashed Potatoes, which we did. This may seem like a minor point but after spending close to $200.00 at this restaurant, I expect good service. For a "fine" Steak house to inform us of this as we are finishing our entre is unbelievable.

    While the appetizers were outstanding, the overall experience was mediocre and found the restaurant overrated. Our food was delivered to a station near us--not to our table--where it sat for a few minutes until I got up and brought the food to our table myself because our server did not come over. By then, our surf and turf entrée was lukewarm at best and we still had not seen our server since the food was dropped by a food runner. When our server finally came over, we mentioned it to him, and they obviously just took the plate and microwaved it which completely ruined a $50-$60 dish.

    The atmosphere, service and people are wonderful but the food is just okay. I really wanted this to be great because I just moved to the area and I took my wife there for her birthday. We might go back and try the bar but I won't spend money on okay food even if the location, service and surroundings are very nice.

    The service was slow. We were seated for 1/2 hour and all we had was water. When we got our meals they were very ordinary at best. We have previously dined here and had impeccable service and meals. We'll try again, everyone has an off night from time to time. We always liked the piano player but on this evening it seemed he was trying to play over the conversation of the patrons which just caused everyone to talk louder, which made it less of a romantic evening then we had hoped for.

    We went to the Oregon Grille for dinner the other night and had a wonderful experience. We have only been there a handful of times, but each time we try different meals and have always been very happy with everything. We have never tried anything we did not like and we have always had excellent servers.

    As a diner strolls up the walkway, lined with jockeys, one gets excited about entering this restored historic building. The outdoor garden, fireplace, tables and chairs on the right, provide a welcoming delight. Upon entry to the old back porch, excitement brews, looking at the horse décor, which continues throughout the restaurant. The professional wait staff takes over, at that point. Food is attractively presented and always served, in a timely fashion, making the diner feel the quietly friendly staff can read the diner's mind. City dwellers love it! We country residents are right at home. Lunch is a great experience. Dinner is pricey but a diner's gem. Check out the bar, with the multitude of animals. The Grill reigns as king.

    Dining at Oregon Grille was an excellent experience. I cannot find one negative thing to say concerning our dining on Saturday. Our waiter was very charming and eager to provide a great evening for us, the food was awesomely delicious, tastefully presented and filling. There isn't one bad thing I can write and we are already looking forward to a return visit. I don't know why it took so long for us to dine there prior to now.

    Took several minutes to be greeted and the host was odd & not welcoming. Server never told us the specials (he told the table next to us). I had put a note on my reservation that I have a seafood allergy that wasn't passed on and apparently there is salmon in the cracker spread. I didn't realize until almost too late Server came by with soup we didn't order, told him it wasn't ours, he said, "right, you didn't order yet." We HAD ordered, and I reminded him what it was. 45 minutes later we got our first course, after we prompted the server to go look for it. Another 30 minutes later we asked again about our food. The entrees were ok but nothing to wait that long for or pay that much money for. Skimpy seafood portions.

    Atmosphere was nice - piano playing, nice lighting. But the food was awful - ruined a $45 cut of meat and a nice fish filet. Tasted like something I could make out of a microwave. Probably geared more towards an older crowd, not as much interested in a good new taste as in something consistent and easily chewed with a pair of dentures.

    We made our first visit to the Oregon Grille as a couple. Our server was wonderful but apparently the kitchen was having a very OFF night. I cannot even tell you how many times our server had to come back and tell us one thing after another that we had ordered was no longer available - really - how do you run out of mashed potatoes at 8 pm on a Saturday night? Our server was very charming in her numerous apologies. Due to the fact that the kitchen was out of so much, our dining "experience" lasted over 2 hours! The atmosphere was very charming so we'll probably give it another shot but we might wait a bit to let the "bad" taste from our first experience together dissipate!

    The service and ambience do not disappoint - We have been guests many times. However, this time the shrimp salad was completely unacceptable:poorly made and barely 2 oz. on a sandwich. This should be taken off the menue if you can't get it right. There was no crab cake sandwich for lunch so we were wondering if this was really Maryland? Disappointed this time.

    My wife's rockfish was excellent. However, my steak ou poive was overpowered by the sauce and it was undercoked. I had ordered medium and it was, at best, medium rare. The table at which we sat was also very cramped. You might want to move the piano, or isolate it a bit (it made conversation difficult).

    The service, drinks and wine were great, as always, but the prime rib as part of a Baltimore County Restaurant Week prix fixe menu was not. Too fatty, a couple of shades pinker than requested, it seemed more fitting for a place that was slowly going out of business, not the Oregon Grille.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    The only negative thing I can say is that the fried onions that come with all your entrée(s) need to be replaced. You serve excellent food, but when the plate is served and half is filled w/fried onions, that reminds me of the French's onions in the can. It takes away the credibility of the dish.

    Went for my first time and ordered the Restaurant Week Lobster Taco meal. The portion size was pathetic and tinsy tiny...and was comprised of 3 mini tacos 2 inches long by 1.5 inches high with very little chopped in little pieces lobster and tasted like canned mush. For a high end restaurant, I was disappointed and felt ripped off... Big time. Mostly filled with corn and little lobster meat! My desert was bigger than my entree...something is wrong with this!

    Well the good thing about coming to the oregon grill is that i can take it off of my list of options for dining. The bad thing is that i will never go back. This is the place to go if you love flavorless and unbalanced food( 2 THUMBS UP WAY TO GO GUYS). the civeche it looked and tasted like it could have come from the freezer section of Sams club, at $17 for 6 bay scallops and 5 tiny shrimp with two endive leaves and no seasoning (it was awful).

    By far, one of the worst meals I've ever had. What a surprise for the Oregon Grille! The fried oysters were overcooked and still contained connective tissues, fried to the point of rubbery around the edges-still edible, but a downer. The Prime Rib was ordered medium rare. What came out was a Medium Well door stop. HORRIBLE! I was offered a new piece or substitution, but it took too long for that offer. Maybe because I was eating alone? I declined. The berries were good, but the whipped cream was too scant for the dish. The food was removed from the tab, but , this is the OREGON GRILLE! What happened???? The idea of this dinner special is to retain and gain customers. The opposite occurred.

    first time there and not worth the hype...flavor combos were off and made for some interesting dishes, too haute for their own good to be nice about it. And there were many complaints from other diners around us about their food too, so it just was not us and it did distract from the overall appeal! Very noisy couple next to us that complained about every dish and just would not stop talking, once they left the whole place was peaceful. So food and people made for a one time visit, we tried it but will not be back

    When Restaurant Week came around this year, I knew Oregon Grille would be on my list of "must visit". I invited a good friend to go with me. We had a great time and were allowed to stay well beyond our limit for occupying a table space. The only problem was that my friend did not like the chicken on her caesar salad. She said it was too rubbery. Aside from that, a wonderful time.
