I made reservations a few days a head and you stuck us in the very last booth with no view at all and I’d mentioned the occasion was my daughters birthday . Which you never made note of. Service was good and food was ok and prices a little high.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner for two. It was included in our overnight package deal so we were delighted with the great value. However we felt the full menu pricing would have been quite high for what we got. The restaurant was very, very busy when we arrived and the staff were struggling to keep up. We waited about 30 minutes for our appetizers, and of course, our meals arrived shortly thereafter. Our server was kind enough to remove the cost of the appetizer since we didn't eat most of it until after our main course! We also appreciated the option of paying a little extra to upgrade our complimentary bottle of wine.

WIne list is lacking any scale and quality---we tried their $65 bottle and it was terrible. The food was over salted. The seafood however was cooked perfectly unfortunately the sauce was horrible. We love Oregon Garden and have had great meals in Silverton down town eateries. Too bad for Oregon Garden restaurant.

Had a very nice dinner experience of seafood pasta in a light cream sauce along with a shrimp cobb salad. Service was very good, but a bit casual, e.g. bill came long before we were done eating. Didn’t really bother me as every other part of the service was great.

Nice restaurant at The Oregon Garden. Menu was a little limited but excellent food. View was very nice overlooking the fields part of the Oregon Garden. They need to review special requests submitted via Open Table (did not catch our birthday request). Service was also excellent.

We booked a couples stay which included dinner at the restaurant. Our food was delicious and service was great. We would recommend this restaurant, even if you are not staying at the resort. The view was amazing of the valley.

We had a 2 pm lunch reservation and the restaurant closed at three. Our waitress was not available to refill our drinks until our meal was finished - seemed like the staff was more concerned about shutting down for the afternoon than in providing customer service. Our lunch had average appeal with above average pricing. Breakfast buffet was not as good as Best Western’s. However, good service and food in the bar/lounge.

The service was excellent! Very helpful young man!
View from seating outside was beautiful and relaxing. The seasonal hazelnut berry salad was excellent. Monte Cristo sandwich needed more filling and much less bread. Hot turkey sandwich was cold. I think the food was very average for such a beautiful venue and view of nature! It would be nice if the kitchen could match the high quality of the surroundings and service!

The warm spinach salad with grilled shrimp was excellent. Appetizer of steamed clams was also very good. It just needed more bread to soak up the extra clam juices.

Yummy place to go for dinner or lunch. Prices are a bit high, but, on nice days, you get to dine outside in a very serene place. Our dinner server was attentive and willing to "go the extra mile". We WILL be back!

Overall, very good! The only thing that kept me from a top rating here was an overdone steak and an under-dressed baked potato. The manager found out about these issues immediately from the server, offered to correct the plate, and comped dessert for both of us. The specialty cocktails were good, the appetizers and main dishes (except said steak) were flavorful, fresh, and prepared nicely. There was no better dessert though than the wide view of the beautiful Oregon Garden and perfect sunset behind the coast range.

The restaurant serves very yummy in an environment that feels special, but not stuffy. We wish more details of the gardens were visible from the restaurant, but it's kind of like a teaser drawing you to walk down the hill to explore

Garden View Restaurant was a bit disappointing. The food was great, service was okay, but the atmosphere was substandard for such a beautiful landscape. The interior of the restaurant looked like an old lady in 1980 designed it and there wasn't a view of the beautiful gardens below from anywhere other than standing up outside. I would recommend the Garden View Restaurant to a friend with the proviso "if you want ambiance, this is not the place to go".

Reasonable prices for the food provided. Great service! I would say the environment is a little dated - but I'd go back for a special occasion (since I live far away).

Nice view and great service for a birthday dinner. Our server, Sarah, was absolutely wonderful! She made our dinner experience. The hostess at the front desk who checked us in was super nice and helpful as well. The food was good, but a little spendy for what you get.

Dinner was delicious, but the real reason for the 5 stars was the amazing, peaceful flower filled view as we ate at sunset on the patio.

Food was good and server was good too. However, I made a reservation and indicated 2 people and also noted it was our 30th wedding anniversary since the website asks if it is a special occasion. Upon check in at the restaurant, we gave our name for the reservation and she asked for how many...I didn’t respond since the reservation indicated how many. At no point was the special occasion mentioned, not at all. Not even a comment,not a complimentary dessert, nothing. It did not sit well with me..why ask about a special occasion if you do nothing to acknowledge it?

We went to the restaurant for the first time after visiting the garden. The food was generous and delicious! My daughter and I had the grilled cheese and they had gluten free bread for mine which I so appreciated. My husband had the Cobb salad and loved his too. We'll definitely come back if we are in the area again.

I liked our waitstaff but I was a bit disappointed in the food. The appetizer hummus tasted way too garlicky and though the salmon was delicious the quality of the salad was mediocre.
Will recommend the restaurant only if you don't expect above average food.

We stayed at the Oregon Gardens for our anniversary and made reservations for dinner at 6:15. We waited over an hour for our meal to be delivered after ordering. It wasn’t very busy and not crowded at all. I would hate to see the wait time if it was a busy night. It was a Sunday evening.

I have already recommended the whole package to friends. Hotel, dinner, wine, entertainment, breakfast and the gardens. Excellent deal well worth the money. Beautiful setting. Great rooms also. The only disappointment was that the tram only runs Fri Sat Sun so for older folks that's a hardship. There is a lot of walking.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Oregon Garden Resort, the steaks were cooked perfectly! The restaurant has some really nice territorial views overlooking the gardens and beyond to the west. It's the perfect choice for a romantic dinner or to celebrate a special occasion. We very much enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and beauty of the Oregon Garden Resort.

We enjoyed the "Girlfriends Getaway" package which included dinner and a bottle of wine. The steamer clams were delicious, as was the wine. The New York Steak can be prepared many different ways, and the sides were perfectly prepared. Dessert was also delicious and amazing. The restaurant overlooks the gardens. Our server, Sarah, was helpful and friendly. We enjoyed a perfect evening! Thank you.
