Food was a solid B, well present, good quality. Service was excellent and tough to beat the view. For a "rustic resort" we were happy.

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.

Worth a visit, they have gotten better of late. They could use some additional choices on their wine list, but otherwise no suggestions.

From the time we were greeted, through seating, menu selection and service, our experience was exceptional.
As great as that was, the food was even better!
Keep it up!

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.

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.

The restaurant was lovely, staff was friendly and welcoming, our lunch was prepared well and served quickly. Our entire party enjoyed the food very much (especially the clam chowder). The prices are very reasonable. If we lived closer we would be regular customers.

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.

In all honesty it was not the place for a dinner.
They ran out of all sorts of food and has a short menu with your typical menu items , nothing fancy , 3 out of 10

We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. The hostess (forgot her name) seated us. Unfortunately, the air-conditioning was blowing on us so we asked to be re-seated. She was gracious about moving us to a different table. And she also lowered the little lights on the wall at our table. Our food server, Adrienne, remembered us from previous visits and even remembered our favorite wine. Each time she visited our table, she made us feel special. Her service was friendly yet professional. It is obvious that she likes her job and, more importantly, she likes people. Lynne, the assistant, was also friendly and helped by taking our picture to mark the occasion. She took the time to make sure we were pleased with our photos before she left us. We cannot thank the staff enough for making our anniversary a wonderful evening.

Table of 4: one ordered salmon (“delicious”), one ordered steak & shrimp (“steak was great, shrimp was okay”), one ordered New York steak (“the steak with my wife’s surf & turf was better”) and one ordered the breaded chicken breast (only issue was the basmati rice was “super salty”). Everyone loved the broccoli.

I cannot recommend for dinner as it seems as though the restaurant over cooks everything from the chicken to the steak to the eggs in the morning. There are some fun restaurants in Silverton with updated menus so choose one of those on your visit to the resort.

Our server was great! Very helpful with the menu and wine selection. Our meals were both outstanding - did not expect that! Delicious steaks, veggies, sides. We came with low expectations as so many resorts have mediocre food... But the food was fantastic and great value. We had a package and I still am amazed at what we got. Will definitely come again and recommend this to friends. Everything delicious!

Based on our experience this time I wouldn’t recommend the restaurant. We had a reservation, but sat at an uncleared table for 10 minutes. When it was cleared, it wasn’t wiped off. Cutlery and bread arrived, but no bread plates. Several tables around us were left uncleared after the guests finished, inviting flies to finish the meal.
My salmon dinner was lovely, but my husband’s meatloaf was nearly inedible. The best thing about his dinner, he said, were the garlic mashed potatoes.
The server apologized and offered a 20% discount on the bill.

Food was good, though they were out of many of the menu items. Service was very slow. Would recommend mainly because the food was good and the garden is beautiful.
