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.

Service was slow...it took 30 minutes just to get our drinks, the rest of the dinner proceeded just as slowly. Nice restaurant but they need to invest in more servers to get things moving...they seemed stretched thin on the wait staff

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.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 3, 2017

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 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.

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.

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.

Food is veryw good. However the service leaves quite a bit to be desired.
1) two glasses of sparkling wine as an apertif came out barely chilled;
2) server poured still water into sparkling for us both and it took two attempts to get both replaced
3) pacing between courses was uneven and time between being checked on by the servers too long
4)noted on my reservation this was a birthday celebration. No acknowledgement at any point during the evening.
