The food was delicious (hot, tender, delicious steak with sides); I love the options to add items like mushrooms top quality ingredients . . . We're looking forward to returning each season for a special meal and to enjoy the changes in the garden!

My friend and I had the best Cobb salad we have ever eaten. It was full of chicken, bacon, avocado, blue cheese, and tomatoes with just the right amount of lettuce. The server was very pleasant and efficient. Dessert: delicious chocolate brownie with ice cream - yum!!
We intend to make this our new restaurant in Silverton from now on. Thank you!

Our meals were cold and my pasta was underdone. Staff was amazing though. I have never sent anything back but I wasn't going to eat the mushroom ravioli. They offered to replace it, and I felt horrible but the seafood duo was much better. Hot and tasty and cooked to perfection. My hubby's ribs were cold and he didn't eat that many but they couldn't have been nicer about it. A waitress came by later and said she tested my ravioli with a fork and they were hard
They took it off the menu for the evening. Thank you to everyone for being so kind
It made all the difference!

Our ordinary hamburgers and salad were excellent! The servings were generous, juicy, and well-seasoned. The salad was crisp and fresh, and dessert, pie made with local berries and a delicate crust was worth every calorie.

The staff was kind and thoughtful, and made us comfortable.

The sunset was like being in a movie. Watching the colors of the sky while we sat on the patio eating dinner was one of the loveliest meals we've had, and after 51 years we've had a lot of lovely meals.

Steak was tough, chewy. Vegetables were good. Service was poor. We felt rushed initially and then we wanted a second glass of wine but the waitperson never asked if we wanted another and scurried off to fill our order for food faster than a jack rabbit.

Oh, the Garden is in such a state of neglect... though not owned by the Garden, the restaurant has lost some luster as well. Food was good--fresh, seasoned well, portions a tad small. But no long do you get a salad or bread with the entree and the prices would suggest that would come with. Staffing is low, thus service is sporadic. Our server tried her best, but she was inside, outside, and in between--thus, no able to be very attentive to us. Servers used to be very professionally dressed in black with black aprons; attire was very casual. There were many diners present, I suspect as part of a package with the lodging. The menu has been pared down so not as many choices as previously.

To sum up: food was good, though expensive, without many choices.

Our dining experience was very good. There were interesting entree’s on the menu and the waiters explained the choices well. The prices were on par with other places we have eaten and the waiters checked back often to fill our water and iced tea. Everyone was friendly even though we all had to wear the mandatory masks.

It’s a beautiful location with outdoor seating that overlooks the Oregon Garden. We split the ribs and the mushroom ravioli and both were excellent. Service was prompt and responsive. They have an excellent wine list with a very reasonably priced house wine that was very good. They’re taking extra precautions such as leaving an empty booth between dining parties.

We found that the prices were much too expensive for what was served. The ambience would be nicer if they washed the windows to fully enjoy the views. The booths were tight and somewhat uncomfortable. We ordered the steak special which was suppose to have a special sauce on it which was forgotten. We mentioned it to our waitress and she brought the sauce out in a cup. It was an odd combination and not good so we left it off. The breakfast the next morning was a standard cheap hotel buffet. No juice was offered yet I saw later they were serving juice to other tables. Ending on a positive note, the coconut prawns we had as an appetizer at dinner were delicious. The dinner wait staff was fine.

We arrived for an 11:00am reservation, and then were told they don’t open until 11:30. They did seat us, however, and brought us water until opening time. Service could have been a little better.

Service was very good although wait staff needs to remember to come back and check periodically, e.g., refill wine glasses, etc. Food was good with nice presentation. Tables were set outside due to Covid situation; however there were no umbrellas or shade to speak of and it was quite warm. Would definitely recommend both the restaurant and the hotel. Quite peaceful and in the Spring I’m sure fantastic.

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful dinner as part of our Dinner Escape package. Burger, steaks, and salmon, alongside mashed potatoes and an assortment of fresh vegetables, were cooked to perfection. There was plenty of outdoor seating, COVID-style, and we enjoyed a very peaceful evening watching the sun set over the Oregon Gardens. Desserts were also delicious and very generous portions.

While the food was very good, (we had the asparagus stuffed chicken) we had to wait almost 40 minutes after we ordered for it to arrive, and there was no bread provided to keep us occupied. Our server herself was good, but the wait was very long; apparently we were behind a group order of 30 dinners. I know these things happen, but a resort should have enough staff to handle both groups and the diners with reservations. Our server did comp us with two desserts to apologize for our wait, and I appreciated that recognition. The restaurant is doing a good job in terms of keeping things safe from the Covid-19 virus.

We had a delightful meal overlooking the gardens. Despite our poor server being in charge of roughly a dozen tables, he still took great care with us and made sure to keep us informed regarding our meal. The food was delicious and came prepared as we asked, fresh and warm. A lovely evening and our second time visiting this restaurant. Never disappointed!

Beautiful setting left us disappointed. The interior of the restaurant is worn and outdated. Sad, as it has so much incredible potential in this location and the view is beautiful. The food was mediocre at best...uninspiring, not properly cooked, soggy vegetables and lukewarm as it arrived at the table. We left knowing we wouldn't be back.
