Fabulous food and dining experience. Our babysitter cancelled and the staff was very accommodating to add in our one year old who also ate everything placed in front of him - a true testament to the cuisine.

We always enjoy the Jory at The Allison. The Sunday menu for lunch was little different than the Week day lunch menu. Still an excellent selection and varied just different. We will be back with friends from out of the area when we go wine tasting.

We had a great experience. The dinner took 2 hours and 45 minutes so service could've been faster and I called ahead to speak with the chef to confirm menu selections which weren't available after all upon my arrival. It was still a great experience overall. Beautiful location, great food, wonderful service.

The Jory is the best restaurant in the Pacific Northwest. The food, the wine, the service, always spectacular! We had Valentines dinner a day late on 2/15 but they still had a special menu with wine pairings! It was all so so good. Our waiter was Jeremy who is always the best. We try to eat at the Jory as much as we can even for a casual night out as they have food in the bar too! It is all just so good!

Love the place. Love the ambience, love the food, love the service. You can sit in the fireplace room with a raging fire and have a burger and a drink, or go into the bar, sit at the food bar and watch the chiefs cook you lunch, or have a formal dinner in the dinning room.
After one of these options, take a walk on the wonderful grounds or site out on one of many patios.

I had wanted an earlier table but 7:30p was the only thing open. When we arrived there were only 4 tables, yet service was very slow. We felt the food was just OK, entrees were small and expensive. Two at my table ordered scallops, one was great and the other noticeably over salted. I suggested we send it back, but it was getting so late she decided to pass. Overall disappointing.

We had guests in town and went to Jory for Sunday brunch but they did not have an actual brunch but just their daily menu which was good. The pinot burger was great, the porkhash was a little too tangy with too much mustard but overall okay. Service was good except that the waitress forgot our side order of truffle fries, then after reminded she said it will be coming out soon which it did not which told me she never put the order in until then. By the time the fries came out, we were just about done with our meals. In hindsight, I should have canceled the fries or it would have been nice if the waitress comped it for her mistake. The menu is somewhat limited on breakfast items and has a mix of lunch items too. It's a nice restaurant and Jory usually does a good job, but I would go elsewhere next time. The one advantage Jory has is that it takes reservations for breakfast and we were on a time schedule for wine tastings, otherwise we would have gone elsewhere if we had more time available.

We have dined at Jory's numerous times and have enjoyed their menu and their service each time. This past week we decided to stay a couple of nights and sample the entire Allison Inn "experience". We were not disappointed. The Allison has mastered the art of service. The entire staff is committed to serving guests in an extraordinary way. Nothing is left for "chance". From the second we "parked" to the moment we checked out it was clear that "impeccable service" is their mantra. There were two issues that cropped but were handled with aplomb. "We Shall Return"...soon.

We found ourselves with a bit of Holiday time on our own & thought Christmas Eve would be a good festive night to try Jory at the Allison! Our service on all accounts, outstanding! Our scallops looked Amazing with pomegranate seeds on top, cooked Perfectly except way way too salty. I tried my husbands scallops to see if it was just my dish~ Nope, just as salty.

Not great. As a freelance writer and former restaurant owner I’m writing a blog review of the experience explaining why what should have been a memorable experience was disappointing. I plan to send it to Jory when complete.

We've been to Jory at least 10x. The food is amazing. Normally my husband and I try to order different main courses so we can try multiple items at restaurants, but neither of us can ever order anything besides the steak here because it is so good. We shared a couple of appetizers and a salad, every bite delicious.
My only complaint was that I made the reservation for dinner two months prior and put on it that we were celebrating and anniversary. We had 5:45 reservations, arrived and the dining room only had maybe 3 tables full. Yet they sat the two of us at the table very closest to the entrance and then placed another family right next to us when there was plenty of other room available. Not very romantic to say the least. When we left at about 8, most of the restaurant, including the nice booths further back, were still open, so we easily could have sat there. Next time I guess I'll ask, but I hate being that person who complains....

Tried calling to say that I would be 15 minutes late. The operator tried to transfer me to JORY but no one answered so she took my phone number. JORY called me just as I was finishing my lunch at Jory and just as I received a text saying that my Open Table points were canceled as a no show (this has been corrected). Very unusual. Everything else was fine

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.

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.
