    Servers were polite and pleasant. Sat by the fire inside where it was quieter. The enclosed terrace was loud, echoing, and smelled of someone's overpowering perfume. The indoor seating still has the atmosphere of a hotel breakfast room versus a prime hotel. I had the boar ragu. It was well-intentioned but underseasoned. They made a valiant attempt at homemade noodles but they were a bit gummy. The leftovers I brought home will go untouched and I wouldn't order it again. I appreciated the attempt at non-chain and from scratch items; however, they have a bit more refinement to go. Other dishes at the table looked well put together. The fish and chips looked crispy. The meatloaf was flavorful. And the salmon disappeared from my partner's plate. It wasn't quite the fine dining experience we were hoping for, but it was a pleasant experience.

    Our party of 4 enjoyed a lovely evening on the outside deck with a view of the Willamette River. Our waitress was perfectly attentive, not rushing us. The food was delicious and nicely presented: chicken marsala, oysters Rock, huge fish n chips, nice choice of wine and cocktails. We definitely will come back with friends.

    Food was a disaster. Steak dry and flavorless on outside, raw inside. Salmon was completely raw in the middle. Compensated for the terrible experience with 20% off of next visit coupon…. There will not be a next time.

    The food has the right ingredients, but they are not assembled by someone who knows how to make things delicious. Flat iron steak is recommended. Salads are piles of salad mix with a few decorations. Get a taste of a wine first; we got some that was pretty oxidized.

    Beautiful location. We eat there a lot because it’s beside the river and wonderful I. Good weather. There’s a very large covered patio area. Good options for vegetarians and a nice cocktail menu. Service was good, as always. We think it would be good to change the menu up more frequently. Or have several specials.

    We went for our 24th anniversary and we’re grateful to get a reservation on short notice as we were scheduled to be out of town. We would have liked to dine outdoors but it was too cold - even though they did have a fire. We dined indoors but the lighting like dining in a surgery room - very odd. The food was delicious and the service was good.

    The food was very good, but disappointed that there was no salad, no vegetable, just the entree. The Cosmos cocktail was too syrupy, disappointing for sure. The margarita was fine. It was a very hot night but we were seated outside and surprisingly it was very comfortable. The breeze off the river was nice and the view of the river was lovely. All in all, it was a pleasant enough experience but I think they could make some corrections in the menu and food overall that would be an improvement.

    Advertised as a Farm to Table restaurant, they fall a bit short on delivering that experience. The menu is heavy on simple and expected dishes with a light choice of entrees. I did not see any dishes that truly highlighted the local growers products and noticed a lot of use of ingredients like button mushrooms, for example. That being said, the food was very good and properly prepared. The atmosphere is beautiful, right above the river. Kudos to the wine list focusing on Northwest wines. Would certainly eat there again.

Nice work city of Independence on making this entire area a must stop. Will definitely be back next time I'm in the Corvallis area.

    Our local restaurant. We go there a lot, and the outside seating is fab. We usually take our friends and love the ambience of sitting on the river. Food is variable. Time to change the menu, though. Maybe ditch some of the heavy in time for summer or have a different lunch and dinner menu.

    This was our second trip to Territory - we went maybe three years ago when it first opened and were underwhelmed but chocked it up to new restaurant syndrome. On the basis of our second visit, Feb 12th, I conclude that there is no reason to go to this restaurant. Lighting is harsh, décor and furnishings were close to cafeteria. The menu is simple and quite reasonably priced. My wife ordered a burger specifically asking if there were any raw onions. Answer was yes, but they would omit. Of course the burger arrives with a pile of onions. It is sent back. Replacement comes and it is a bloody uncooked burger. No one comes to check, my wife takes the plate to the bar and asks that it be cooked again. 10 minutes goes by and the waitress comes back to ask if my wife actually wanted it remade. We're frustrated because 1) any restaurant that serves uncooked hamburger does not place a high value on food safety or quality control 2) my wife is still lacking a dinner and I'm done eating. Ultimately they delivered an acceptable burger and without asking, they comped all of the food for both of us. I tipped 25% on the basis of the full un-comped check. We won't be back, which is sad.

    Ambiance was really nice and the food was good. The server was very friendly and helpful though a little overwhelmed with kitchen and billing issues which I feel the manager is responsible for but left it up to the young woman to handle. 1. Two of our party ordered the steak special of the day. The kitchen and server didn't communicate that they were out of the special and we were served tiny pieces of another steak cut and not what we ordered. She agreed it was not the special but the establishment's make-up was far from ideal - order another entree on us to-go for two prime entees. 2. Bad screw up on the billing when we were splitting the check between two couples. Instead of clarifying the split, one person was charged for just one entree and the other was saddled with the rest of the tab. This establishment can really set itself up with excellent restaurants but the mgmt seems to think it is OK to send young inexperienced wait staff out to fend for themselves and not be visible or coordinate simple things that make the diners experiences memorable for the right reasons and not the irritations. I hope they read this and get with it because they can be it.

    The Territory offered three prix fixe menu choices and we both went for the surf and turf (steak and lobster) with brussel sprout appetizer and pumpkin cheesecake dessert. Everything was fantastic. Meat tender, perfectly done (medium rare) and flavorful; lobster sweet and delicious; brussel sprouts with bacon and cheese were fantastic; cheesecake topped it off perfectly. Have not had a better meal at twice the price.
