JORY Restaurant at The Allison Inn & Spa
My first visit. I live in Portland. My niece is a senior at George Fox U and I thought it would be a special place to bring her. The restaurant is gorgeous, the JORY and crab Benedict’s were delicious. The salad dressing was so good I bought some to bring home. Then we had a lovely walk around the grounds and enjoyed all the sculptures.
The restaurant was not very busy so I felt the service a bit slow although the servers were really nice.
I recommend Jory to everyone I know. The food and service is absolutely amazing and perfect, every time I have gone.
We are staying at the Allison Inn for our anniversary. Lunch at the Jory was just another wonderful experience of this Inn/Resort. Service was top notch and attentive without being bothersome. Questions were answered professionally and they knew about our anniversary and my wife’s need for gluten free options since I had mentioned it on reservation. (The gluten free bread is very good).
We had a halibut sandwich and salmon dishes and both, along with the accompanying salads, were very well executed.
We look forward to another lunch at the Jory before we have to head home.
Server was great and welcoming! I’ve come here before for dinner and I think that may have set my expectations for brunch so high. Although brunch as good- I would recommend more for lunch and dinner
We stayed at The Allison Inn it was a memorable evening. The food is very good with a heavy emphasis on local ingredients and they have one of the most impressive and comprehensive wine lists I have ever seen (and I have seen many). However, the service is what sets Jory apart from all other fine restaurants: it is fantastic, without being pretentious.
This was my daughters 10th wedding anniversary and the restaurant presented she and her husband a beautiful, personalized, desert tray at the end of our meal.
Food, ambiance and service were all superb. A must visit!
The service was extremely attentive and the food showcased what was local and fresh
Food could be better. Not 5 star. We were seated next to a large party that was celebrating and drinking a lot. They were really raucous. It was very distracting. A quieter dining experience would have been nice.
One of us is vegan which we noted well in advance. The restaurant was not able to accommodate other than some potatoes and mushrooms. A big disappointment from an upscale restaurant.
My husband had the salmon, which was good. But a very small portion for $42.
After reading all the reviews of Jory we were expecting an amazing experience and all we received was a lack luster bust. We each got the tasting menu which did have some hits but also some large misses. The staff did not seem to have any coordination. The ideas behind the dishes were thoughtful but the taste was just lacking. My wife did the wine pairing and they would bring her next glass of wine 10-15 minutes before we ever saw the food pairing. I'm not writing this review to rip the restaurant by any means. I just want to advise against any expectation that Jory will be worth the price or expectation that has been built up for it.
Lovely setting for a special lunch or dinner. Creative flavorful menu beautifully presented.
Celebrating a dear friend's birthday. We were seated at a window table with a beautiful view of the valley. Our server helped us select a perfect bottle of wine and were given uninterrupted time to savor the wine and the view. We order the halibut sandwich and the Pinot burger, both were done to perfection. We had a very special and memorable time. This is not my first visit to JORY but it never disappoints for lunch or dinner. I highly recommend JORY.
The Wagu steak was amazing!
This was our second dinner here. It was our anniversary and it is one of my favorite experiences. The food is excellent. They bring out little extras, palate cleansers, which are such a nice touch. THey gave us a beautiful box of chocolates as a gift for our anniversary. And all the staff said happy anniversary. They go above and beyond. It’s pretty special.
Just discovered the Joey and it was wonderful! Everything was perfect. The food was so good. My steak melted in my mouth! Plus The Allison was beautiful. Even the door handles in the bathroom were exquisite!
It was one of the best meals we have ever had. Everything was perfect and the food was amazing. The flavors and quality were outstanding. It’s a must go to.
Sit at the Chef’s counter to eat from both the bar and dining room menus... you won’t be disappointed.
Stunning eating experience. The staff was on top of their game and really treated us so incredibly well. We did the tasting menu and had a wonderful time trying new flavors and combinations throughout the meal. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a special night out
Had another great lunch at JORY which is why we continue to go back again and again!
Last time we dined at Jory we were disappointed. This time however, was a whole different experience. They apparently have gotten a new chef and the food was excellent. We had halibut and salmon. Both were excellent.We also had the tomato salad and the scallops for an appetizer. Both great. Will definitely return.
Great food, great views, great service! The birthday dinner for my husband was perfect!
Fantastic as always!
Yes my wife and I enjoyed our brunch, we have enjoyed every visit to Jory.
We were surprised at the casual way people were dressed to the point of scruffy, cargo pants old tee shirts and trainers like I wear in my yard. Yes it was a hot day and smart casual is fine for one of Oregon's very best hotels.
I really should have requested a patio table when I made the reservation, not to worry.
I did not enjoy a fellow diner blowing his nose on his napkin, uncouth peasant!
It sounds like we could have enjoyed our brunch more, yes I think so. Thank you Tony & Gill Brennan,
this is the first time we have had to criticize Jory.
Wonder space and great service! Only wished our appetizers came before our main dish, otherwise a very enjoyable meal. Highly recommended.
The food was outstanding starting with a cold melon soup that was perfect for a summer day. The paella was to die for and the blackened prawns were amazing. Our server Derrick was excellent as well: helpful and professional without hovering. The wine list was something to see as well both for its breadth and depth. A great place to spend our Anniversary.
We had a great lunch with excellent service and we love the place as always!
The service was prompt and friendly and the food was amazing!
Fantastic food, beautifully served.
We had a very nice dinner of salmon & halibut entrees. Everything was very tasty and the service was top notch. We also ate breakfast there twice, with an equal level of food and service.
Excellent wait staff at every hour; excellent choices at lunch, on a dinner tasting menu and wide range of small plates in the bar area
My party of 5 enjoyed the whole experience. The service was especially outstanding. Most of the food was delicious--only exceptions being the cucumber salad (a bit too bland needing salt, vinegar, or citrus) and the Australian beef (texture a bit stringy and tough). The rest of the vegetable dishes were especially tasty. I would definitely like to eat there again
We ordered the biscuits and they were cold.
We enjoyed a nice walk around the resort and vineyard before our wonderful lunch on the deck.
We recently celebrated our anniversary at the JORY. The service was outstanding! We chose the five course chefs menu with wine parings for our meal. All five courses were delicious and the wines paired perfectly with each course. The main course of albacore tuna was prepared to perfection.
Food was great. Staff was friendly, especially an older woman who seemed to be helping different tables with little things. Our waiter disappeared after bringing our food, so it took a little longer than expected for the table to be cleared and check to be brought and picked up. Overall, I would recommend this place and return.
Excellent! Great service. Ambiance quiet enough to carry on a conversation. Lastly the food was phenomenal. Everybody in my group throughly enjoyed there meals. I will be back!!!
Fabulous breakfast experience. The eggs Benedict and buttermilk pancakes are amazing. Beautiful display and phenomenal flavors.
Our waitress Vicki was amazing! Very knowledgeable of what the food and the place. We inquired regarding about the business and she knew the history of the business. Service was excellent she checked on us making we are doing great.
If your thinking about going for brunch, Do it! A wonderful experience!
We visited the Allison about three years ago and was so happy with all the services and meals. The housekeeping three years ago was outstanding and you had people cleaning and dusting the hulls and everything was superb. This time we visited the rugs when not clean , the room vents where bad so we asked then to come and change it and they did but left all the dust on the vents. I called again the no one ever came to clean it up. The beds needs to be changed for the comfort is not there. Our shower had mold in the corners and we asked if they would clean it and it was still there. I hope that this beautiful inn has not changed mangers and staff because it was not the same. As for our dinner at Jory it was not the greatest. My husband had the fish and it was so dry and it feel apart, my wagyu steake was ok but not taste. Now the ahi sampler was so salty .
As for the spa that was a whole other story. And I am sure you all have heard this story. Rude person told us our reservation went to the spam box. So we had to get a message and that was it.
As for the front dest they where outstanding . Shaz did a fabulous job with the reservations , and the bell men was always there to help.
Please try to redo the area's you are lacking in for this is the most beautiful place and would love to come back again.
