    Sat for 25 minutes without being noticed. Asked the host if we could move tables (he said he’d check but then forgot to come back until I flagged him down again). The waitresses noticed us now that we were more in her sight and apologized for not seeing us before. The restaurant was full but only had one server, maybe two. Host was unhelpful and honestly a bad representation of the restaurant and gave a poor first impression. Didn’t smile, didn’t say welcome in, acted like he’d rather be anywhere else. I think it’s great that they’re hiring young kids but at least train them well. Asked about wine, the waitress said she didn’t know much about Chardonnays. Asked about the local fish and she said she didn’t know much about it either (but said it tasted like Halibut). Incorrect items on the bill. Had to send it back to remove glasses of wine that weren’t ours. Took 45 mins to get our order in. I rarely complain but for a $240 dinner for 3 people, it’s worth noting. Has potential but the training is lacking as the experience was a big disappointment. Food was good but walked away not wanting to come back. It was a painful experience.

    Food and service are excellent. The decor is nice. The room is very open and a bit noisy though, so it is not a place for an intimate dinner. We've been here twice and will return.

    Great food! Wow; nice surprise. The service was pretty slow on the night we were there. The waiter Braden was amazing. Great recommendations and service but he was overworked and the bartender lost our drink order. Will go back again due to the food and friendliness. :)

    This was sadly the worst meal we’ve had in Bend (maybe Oregon) in the last 13+ years. The decor is California beach and looks like those chain restaurants called Hampton Social. It’s light and cute. Despite being in Bend the “local” and “fresh” catch was from Baja. Odd choice given the Pacific Ocean 3/4 hours straight west and every other restaurants ability to get PNW seafood. The staff was extremely young and inexperienced but tried very hard which was appreciated. Except the runner who threw a plate down at the table and ran. The dirty martini tasted bad/spoiled and we were told they use kitchen olives and it just tastes that way. The burger was so overcooked it was not edible. The Caesar had no Caesar or anchovy flavor just kale with parm. Not one in the whole 5 person group could eat it. One person ordered the salmon very well done and it was undercooked. The salads had absolutely no flavor. It was overall a horrible meal and we grabbed tacos after because we were so hungry but the food really wasn’t edible. We can all agree we will never go back. Bend has so many amazing restaurants and places to eat it’s not worth the risk. It was also expensive but that’s ok if it was good. It just was not. At all. Also for those with dietary restrictions - the only vegetarian GF dish was a salad. No entrees - you get a salad. Very limited food for veg/vegans and GF and DF. Again so odd for Bend.

    We enjoyed sharing the crab cakes & seaweed seasoned fries. The scallops were absolutely delicious, especially enjoyed them as a side to my arugula, pear salad. Everyone enjoyed the ambience and their dinner. The cioppino lacked spice and seafood. In all we thoroughly enjoyed our, very attentive, server and will definitely return & recommend to all.

    When I first walked in, I thought the place sounded noisy, but my companion and I were able to have an easy conversation, and the overall noise level was really not too bothersome. I had the steak tartare, which was delicious and my friend had the crabcake sandwich which she raved about. We’ll come back.

    The food was absolutely delicious, but it was FREEZING inside. My wife and I needed to keep our coats and hats on the entire time. The overall vibe just wasn't really our thing--kind of sterile. A cozier atmosphere would help tremendously.

    Our first experience at Hook & Plow was excellent . Terrific service and a very diverse menu. We'll be back for sure! If we had a slight complaint, it would be that the noise level is high (we were there around 6:30 on a Friday). Really tough to hear and carry a conversation. Overall.....a terrific experience!

    We were a group of seven dining at 7:30pm. Drinks took forever. We also had brought two bottles of wine and even the glasses and opener took a while. First and eventually, came a skillet (cold) with fries in it. Obviously the fries although fairly warm did chill fast in their cold skillet. Why serve supposedly hot food in cold dishes? Eventually came the tuna poke and the crab cake which seemed like it was never going to arrive but at least they were ok. Some bread and butter arrived that was singularity unappetizing because it was burnt in a number of spots. It took ages for the mains to arrive. The airline chicken was very tasty and hot but again in a cold dish. The steak was seasoned ok and cooked to the correct temperature but unfortunately it was rather on the cold side and the sides served with it were somewhat of a mess. Again it was served on a cold plate. The burger was rather cold and somewhat dry and the bread was also burnt in spots. The three chicken sandwiches also had some burnt bread and much of the chicken was also over grilled or burnt and tough. Overall it was quite disappointing especially as it was our last night with some of our family before they returned home

    Staff was warm and welcoming. Good wine selection. Ordered two NY strips which were over cooked. They did refire one of them but it took a little while to come out. Fish and chips were good but heavy on the breading. Server got busy behind the bar and we would have liked to order more drinks. Happy for a new place like this to land, but for the price a few details could have made this a better experience.

    Really good food. Everything we tried was delicious. Portion sizes were just right for two of us to share an appetizer, salad, main course and dessert. Fresh catch of the day was halibut…amazing! Bread pudding dessert was crispy edged and soft on the inside. Tempted to go back again just for that! Cocktails were also really good. Our server Bradon did a great job of explaining the dishes and making recommendations. We enjoyed the vibe here for our anniversary dinner.

    Let me start by saying the chowder was excellent and the scallops were great! Two in our party had the halibut and said it was good, but not large enough. Another had the chicken and said it was good, but not a large enough portion for $30+. I had the cioppino and it left a lot to be desired. The portion seemed very small for the price and it didn’t have a ton of flavor. Overall, the food was good, not great and 3 of us left hungry, so that was a bummer. We were seated at 5:15 and told by our waiter they’d already run out of fish n chips. Things happen, so not a huge deal, but slightly disappointing since a few of us wanted that. I thought at this point he would take our drink order or bring water, but he walked away. Water arrived a little after 5:30 and he came back around 5:40 to take our drink order. By the way, the peach vodka mule was really tasty! Appetizers and entrees arrived within a timely fashion, but we were never once offered another round of drinks, (water included) and we all would have ordered another round…especially when all glasses were empty when our food arrived. Plates were cleared (still no offer for drinks) and he walked away. Yes, we could have easily asked, but at this point it became an unspoken game between the table. Another waiter refilled our waters (as a side note, we watched him hustle all night long for the tables beside us). Our waiter came back about 5-10 minutes later, asked if we wanted dessert, we all politely declined and then our check arrived. After reading this, I sound like a massive complainer that’s hard to please, but in all honesty, myself and the 3 others in my party are pretty easy to please…especially when it comes to food/drinks. If I was invited to go back, I’d give it another shot (just for the chowder), but I won’t be seeking out reservations on my own.

    While the food was quite good, as a restaurant they're going through growing pains. Service was slow and appetizer plates were not cleared in a timely manner. They 86'd the fish and chips after I ordered it but the table next to us was getting it offered to them. The restaurant has a nice vibe and I will try it again at some point in the future. Lastly, parking is difficult in the area.

    First time at H&P for lunch, but it won't be the last. The steak sandwich in the lunch special menu was 🔥! Salads were good, but could probably skip the fish tacos for something else next time. Great service!

    Overall, a welcome, urban-influenced addition to Bend's food scene. Excellent, attentive service. Music was aimed at an upbeat, hip dining vibe (à la Los Angeles) but thankfully not too loud or overbearing like most other restaurants in town. Both our meals were heavy on the garlic, particularly the fries & sauce, which didn't thrill either of us. Bathroom was clean overall but toilet very dirty.
