So grateful to have this gem in SIlverton.
Food was wonderful. Service was outstanding. We will be back
Finished a vigorous hike at nearby Silver Falls State Park. Drive 15 miles to Silverton for a late lunch or early dinner. Doors opened and we were greeted right away by hostess. Service attended our table immediately for water offer of beverages, and dinner specials were also printed and discussed.
First course charcuterie was one of the best I’ve ever had. Meats cheeses and pickled veggies were delicious and artfully presented. I enjoyed the parsnip soup, and my partner had the grilled/charred Caesar salad. She did share a few delicious bites of the salad with me. Then onto main course: she had melt in your mouth lamb, and I tried the “cuts the butter” tri-tip. Both tender and flavorful. We paired our entrees with glasses of local Pudding River Pinot: delicious modest mouthful of flavors (not overly robust).
We finished this feast with creme brûlée and apple strudel. The strudel used fillo dough which made for very enjoyable flaky texture, and minimized the sugary sweet compote so you enjoyed the toned down natural sweetness of the apples.
How much did we enjoy our meals and the ambiance? I posted the name of this gem on my FB page so friends can find it as well.
I’m a local. Silver Grille is fabulous!
Great meal as always, great service, a bit noisy with a party of four near us guffawing too loudly. Brought along a couple who moved to Oregon recently and they really enjoyed the Silver Grille.
The absolute best restaurant in the area. Highly recommended!
Consistently delicious! The best restaurant in our area.
We enjoyed eating at Silver Grille for my wife's birthday. I has an intimate setting with tables reasonably far apart to provide separation of parties. The food was outstanding. The 4 of us had the New York steak, lamb and chicken and all were sharing bites. The apple strudel was so delicious that my daughter wants the recipe. The fancy pants pineapple, cream, ??? layered desert was fantastic -- just order it if you want a lighter style dish. My take is that it is a Portland quality restaurant at a slightly lower price. The fact that you get a full meal and are not ordering items ala carte is a plus. We will return to try other dishes. One last thing...I like that they have a limited menu. It gives me confidence that the ingredients are fresh and they are practiced at serving the dishes. I sometimes wonder what I'm getting at large restaurants that have countless options. Don't worry, there is something for everyone.
We really liked our visit to Silver Grille. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. The only thing I would suggest is they serve the vinaigrette on the side of the "naughty librarian" salad. It was full of delicious flavors: pears, blue cheese, and candied pecans I believe. None of which I could taste. It was completely taken over with vinegar. I couldn't finish it because my mouth burned. I was disappointed because I love the contrasting flavors of this type of salad. But I can't stress enough how wonderful everything else was. Just one minor suggestion. :)
I had a lovely and enjoyable time recently at the Silver Grille. Myself and friend enjoyed succulently prepared seafood dishes. Both were amazing! We received first rate service and the dessert was fabulous! Can't wait to return again! This restaurant is a favorite for sure!
Nice anniversary dinner. Sat by a little talkative table for 4 but still had a great time. Food was all good.
Silver Grill is our choice for special celebrations. The food is wonderful and presented beautifully. Service is always gracious and has a personal feel.
The Silver Grille never disappoints! Absolutely the best fine dining in the Valley!
Went with our adult kids for my husband's birthday. Asked, through Open Table, if the chef could make a cake which he did and it was wonderful. Thank you Jeff and Naomi.
A very friendly kitchen in terms of some substitutions or modifications. Food is creative, tasty and sustainable. A real gem.
Always the best! Staff wonderful, foods are always fresh and deserts are sinful
Great service and great food. Best restaurant south of Portland.
Lovely dinner prepared with local, fresh ingredients. Excellent, timely service. Extensive wine list. Wonderful execution of all courses. One of my favorite restaurants!
Our favorite Silverton - a true gem (a unique menu, outstanding food, great service, and solid wine list).
It’s always worth the hour drive from Portland to this Silverton restaurant. The menu features fresh Willamette Valley produce. Each dish is creative and very tasty. Service is friendly. Cozy atmosphere. There were many appetizer options including two soups. I chose the squash purée slightly spiced with curry. The entree of veal was tasty but not memorable. Desserts are always an impressive ending to a fine dining experience, in this instance a layered pineapple napoleon was as appealing as it’s artistic appearance.
The tri tip was to rare and salmon was under cooked. Portions were small.
We are never disappointed when dining at Silver Grille over the past many years. Their menu is very redundant, food always cooked perfectly and the service makes you want to come back soon.
Wonderful meal, freshest ingredients. I had an amazing beer salad and trip. My husband had an indescribable pork chop. Not to be missed!
I’m local. Always delicious. Never disappoints.
The ambiance and quiet space was quite agreeable. The food was fresh and well prepared. Would have like more seafood and vegetarian choices. The dessers were excellent. Would have like a good French champagne if possible.
Always exceptional! Such a nice place for a date night! Cheers!
Lovely meal with a dear friend. The cream corn soup and the salmon entree were delicious. Also had a great glass of wine. We shared a dessert that was lovely.
Definitely recommend this restaurant!
Great place! All the staff was amazing! Food was delicious!
We were camping at the Detroit Lakes State Park and had a wonderful conversation with a local Salem couple, (Hi Kelly & Stacey!) We love to ask locals where their favorite spots are! The town of Silverton and the Silver Grille were absolutely golden ( or Silver!) treasures! Right from the Staff to the Food and Ambiance & Wine ! This place is a true gem! We highly recommend! 7 out of 5 Stars!
We live for places like this that support local and cook from scratch ! Rare finds! Eat here! You won’t regret it!
We enjoyed: a pork shoulder steak
Oxtail-wild mushroom cannelloni
Creme brûlée, apple strudel
Local Cabernet Sauvignon wine
My husband and I have dined here many times. On this occasion we took our son and daughter-in-law who were visiting from California. They enjoyed the food very much as we did also.
The owner / chef makes everything in-house using locally sourced ingredients when possible. My wife thought her pork entrée was perhaps the best she has every had. This is a great spot to take out-of-town visitors.... an easy drive through the countryside.
We have returned time and again. We have driven to Silverton just to dine here. The food is exquisite.
Always enjoy our dinner at Silver Grille. They never disappoint. Really enjoy their Corn Soup as it is now in season. Highly recommend it.
Nice place w/ great food! The tri tip and new york steak are to die for! Wish their meals came w/ a salad, but most nicer places don't serve one w/ their meals. :(
Love this restaurant! A wonderful place to go for special occasions made more memorable by the fantastic meals and the exceptional wait staff.
Took a couple of friends to Silver Grille recently, The restaurant, one of my favorites, fit the bill except for one thing: my main course, halibut cheeks in a tasty sauce, was barely warm. l like my cooked food hot. On the other hand, both my gazpacho and crème brûlée were some of the best I've had. Delicious!
I'd have sent the fish back, but it took too long to be served (that could be why it wasn't hot; probably sat a while after being plated,) but I was hungry and ate it despite its unappealing temperature.
I'll return to Silver Grille, but I'll discuss my preferences in detail with my server and won't hesitate, if something doesn't meet my expectations, to send it back.
This was a wonderful evening celebrating a birthday and we were very pleased. The food was delicious, service spot on and a romantic table for two at the evening made for a very memorable experience!
As always, a delicious meal. The best restaurant in Silverton.
Silver Grille is a great local restuarant with excellent food, presentation and service.
