JORY Restaurant at The Allison Inn & Spa Ratings and Reviews
We’ve eaten at JORY many times and found it quite enjoyable. However, our last experience was a bit disappointing. While the service is VERY attentive, it’s a bit too much. We constantly had someone at our table refilling water, refilling wine glasses, asking if we needed anything etc.... it was excessive and interfered with conversation and the overall experience.
We enjoyed dinner and breakfast at Jory. We found the food to be excellent. You could tell that ingredients were thoughtfully chosen, fresh, local and tasty. Food presentation was beautiful. We called a few weeks in advance of our stay and were placed on a wait list for any dinner seating time that became available. Unfortunately we were never contacted. Upon check-in we checked to see if any openings had become available and still there was nothing. We were bummed but there were still two options available; in room dinning and first come first serve dining at the bar or in the living room. We chose to try to find a seat in the living room or at a table in the bar and it proved to be quite difficult and frustrating. Eventually we ended up with seating at the bar. The lady bar server was amazing, friendly and very attentive and turned our experience around. So a big thank you to her for her hospitality and for sharing tips on Colorado travel. Food wait times for both dinner and breakfast were a little on the longer side then we are use to, but the quality, freshness and presentation make up for the wait. Overall, an excellent dining experience.
Food preparation and presentative is excellent. Chef has developed imaginative recipes without overdoing unusual ingredients or combinations.
Services is thoroughly professional while remaining warm and welcoming. Staff has achieved balance of being fully attentive without being intrusive. Service reminds me of best European restaurants.
The food was absolutely excellent, and it's a beautiful place. But while the servers were earnest to a fault, they spilled both of our glasses of red wine on my companion and no offer was made to pay for her dry-cleaning. The wine glasses--which were full when spilled--were refilled but not comped. Jory provided a free extra course to us between our appetizer and entrée--but we were on a tight schedule and they did not ask us if we had time or wanted the extra course. (It was very good--a seafood/rice casserole--but my companion was also having seafood risotto as her entrée.) All in all, we were there nearly 2.5 hours, and I was 45 minutes late getting home. Maybe Tuesday nights are not the best nights to dine at Jory!
Restaurant is beautiful and food was exceptional; overall a great experience. Had to ask for water refills and set up for dinner was happening all around us, even at the next table. A definite distraction from what would have been an exceptional dining experience...
We go to the Willamette Valley to do wine pickups 2 to 3 times a year and always make sure we stop by Jory for brunch. The food was great this time for brunch, however the wait time for the food was a bit long (over 30 minutes) without much communication from the server about the length of time. We were only told there was a mess up in the kitchen.
Jory's is the perfect antidote to too busy, too chaotic world. It's a place where diners actually "dine," where service is not only provided with a smile, but the overall vibe invites each guest to know their meal will be just as wonderful as the overall ambiance. Whenever we visit this restaurant, we not only enjoy our meal, our psyche's lift and our digestion improves. What a gem! Consistent no matter what occasion. And if you're not 100% happy with anything, all you need to do is speak to the waiter or your hostess. They will do all they can to make it 'right.'
burger was tasty but heavy and greasy with an excessive amount of bacon. the fried green tomato BLT was tasteless mush: served on too-thin (or flattened), grilled bread, with black grease marks from a dirty grill or press; the entire sandwich was made mushy by the heat and moisture of the tomato; they used salad "spring" greens instead of a heartier lettuce - this created hot wilted lettuce - all around awful, we took two bites and did not eat it.
they also served us a very warm sauvignon blanc, then claimed it was the "correct temperature for white wine," as though all white wine should be served at the same temperature (it should not).
our waiter was clueless (and disappeared); the head waiter was also clueless and off-putting (said he would "mention [the wine temperature] to the somm").
overall forgettable/regrettable food, poor service and low value. a one and done!
The food was quite good however very limited choice on the menu. I think there may have been six choices of entrées. Be prepared to spend a minimum of $35-$40 per person for just the entrée. The ambience was nice the service was OK, nothing Really extra special. I would recommend this restaurant for a very special occasion only.
Excellent food service to match. Although the wine list was excellent I felt the list did not offer a good range of price points. It seemed to be designed to force the diner to select 100 dollar plus bottles. If I dined there again I would bring my own wine and Payc corkage fee. With all the wonderful wines From area wineries offering quality wine at 50 to 75 dollars it was DISAPPOINTING not to see those priced wines on the list. Come on broaden the list.
Celebrated a foodie friend's Birthday with lunch. The wine selection was outstanding. We had the pear salad and shared the burger. We both agreed. . . It was the best meal we have had in a very very long time. That burger was the BEST burger we've ever eaten. The bun was delicate in taste and the perfect size, not overpowering as is often the case. The perfect compliment to the meat and cheese. Well done!! I Highly recommend Jory for lunch.
We had dinner at Jory during a recent stay at The Allison. The service and ambience were very good. We were able to enjoy our conversation without worrying about those around us. The wait staff was pleasant and not overbearing. The sommelier was helpful as well. We had the grilled ribeye and the salmon. Both were excellent but I think the beef was better. I would definitely return and recommend.
Service was some of the best ever. Orders were split between the two of us with no fuss. The amuse bouche was the best part of our dinner (wish I could describe it better than to say it was seafood based). The salad and the scallops were impeccable but did not "wow" the way the amuse bouche did. We wished there had been more seafood offerings as main courses. We both opted for the ribeye and instead of ordering "medium" or "medium rare" because there is so much variation in how these terms are understood, we asked for "pink" in the center. The steaks arrived practically raw -- blood red throughout. The waiter was very accommodating -- without any protest or "attitude," he brought back our plates with the meat almost like what we wanted (this time they were just a bit overcooked). We were too full to try any of the desserts. The waiter also described the wines we were not familiar with which allowed us to try the wine made from grapes right on the Allison Inn estate. The waiter was fabulous.
Not sure why, appearance, dress, time?? But with a two month ahead reservation with comment about a birthday, seating was lower level near back room special party with NO ACKNOWLEDGEMENT if our special occasion. Still, restuarant is indeed special, minimalist decor, open view prep area with open fire with logs burning that felt really nice on entry....though we were seated as far from that as chilly wet night could be.
Food inventive presentation, good wines offered.
The Jory never disappoints - breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I enjoyed wild salmon. You could tell by the color and the taste it was fresh and wild. Jory's service is impeccable and friendly. It is a very comfortable place and is understated in all the right ways. They have a great wine list. However, don't miss their "pinotrita" if you are margarita fan.
We had an awesome experience. We elected to sit at the kitchen bar. If you ever want to see how a well run kitchen works and see your food being made, I would recommend sitting at the bar by the kitchen. Food was great. Loved the "tots". Highly recommended.
We enjoyed strolling around and looking in the lobby and at the artwork before brunch. We thought the artwork was particularly well suited to the environment. What we chose for brunch was very tasty and our waitress was a real sweetie. All and all, a great experience. Our only recommendation would be that it could have been a little warmer.
An outstanding restaurant, one of my favorite places in the country. The food is awesome, the service impeccable and the place is terrific located at the incredible Allison Inn in Oregon Wine country. We had the lamb, the pork, the albacore and the scallops over the course of two nights, fantastic! The veggies are from their own garden picked daily and the fish and meat are super.
Always have a wonderful experience at Jory's. Hands down, the best resturant in Newberg.
Consistently innovative in their menu and in the execution. This time had the Paella...spicy but I could still taste the conbination of flavors. I can't recommendthis restaurant enough!
With no knowledge of Jory's other than recommendations from friends, we elected to have our anniversary dinner there. The patio was a good introduction, as it's a quiet and scenic place for a before-dinner drink (great drink menu, by the way). Dinner itself was outstanding - the food was terrific, service was outstanding and the view is as good as fine artwork. Altogether a marvelous dining experience, not just another meal out.
I have NEVER been disappointed eating at Jory's. The service in great and this time I was dining with a friend who has Celiac disease and is also dairy intolerant. The chef prepared the same meal that I was eating, only was able to accommodate her dietary needs and she raved about it. They are always willing to go the "extra mile". Love that chef!!!
Had a reservation for 1:00 WE GOT THERE AT 12"50, THE HOSTESS WENT TO SEAT US AT A LITTLE CORNER TABLE EVEN THOUGH THE RESTAURANT WAS I/4 FULL, I ASKED FOR A WINDOW SO SHE HAD TO CHECK WITH THE MANAGER, THEN CAMe BACK AND WENT TO SEAT US AT ANOTHER CORNER Table. I said with all the empty window seats why are you putting us in a corner> finally the mgr got us a table by the window, but now had to find a server, who as he told us was the bar tender, but he was glad to serve us,now we were in the empty back restaurant, by the window with no menus and no server, finally after getting a busser we got a cup of coffee. the rest of the service was good, but the food is over priced and not that special.
Arrived for brunch on Saturday. Valet team was on the spot and complimentary with our brunch reservations. Hostess was very accommodating rearranging our seating choice to an outside table. Ordered Bloody Mary's which were delicious. Service was okay. My wife ordered the crab benedict which was fabulous and I ordered the shrimp and grits which was also fabulous and we shared both plates. The menu indicated sides that weren't presented when delivered. When questioned our waitress indicated that the menu says one thing but that isn't reality? But they brought the one piece of toast (not two) anyway. All in all we would return for the setting alone and the food, overall, was outstanding.
Food was delicious but service really lacking. After being seated for brunch, was 10 minutes to get someone's attention to ask for coffee. Drinks same thing, wait staff had to be reminded (in one instance 2 times) of orders previously placed. They cleared my silverware after first dish, said "be right back with new silverware" and after a while brought next course and hurried off, still no silverware. Had to nab my own fork and knife from another table! Wrong orders twice brought to our table. We were three people, spent $150 for brunch, would have expected way more in service. Have received much better service for much less expensive brunch. Excellent food, disappointment of overall experience.
