The Oregon Grille Ratings and Reviews
4.2 Overall, a great experience. This could easily be a 5* place. It was my dad's 99 birthday, and I requested an "off the main room" place for 7. Very accommodating. Server was beyond grand. I tipped her accordingly. Water gentleman was great, except he filled the water glasses to the very top, making it hard for an older person to lift without spilling. Husband ordered a lovely salad with salmon on the top. Delivered to table was just salad with no salmon. Server had to go back to kitchen and order a salmon, which took about 10-14 minutes to prepare and was delivered to table after the salad had been eaten. We didn't even ask, but they took that off the bill. Food was great, and the atmosphere even more uniquely so. Will go back for his 100th, most definitely.
We have long loved the Oregon Grille, ever since it first opened years ago. It's a special place for special occasions (& I like inventing "special" reasons to go). It is not inexpensive and gents are required to wear jackets for dinner, but if you want a quiet, plush, memorable meal with fine wine or a cocktail, in Maryland's horse country, this is the place to go. The bar is fantastic; completely old-school brass, glass, mahogany. The rest of the restaurant has authentic old architecture charm, too.
Oregon Grille is one of our favorite restaurants, and we always enjoy the experience. Unfortunately, we have to say that they didn't handle Valentine's Day very well at all. When we stepped into the entry way there were 15 other people waiting to be seated. The gentleman at the desk (though the computer with the reservations was active) was writing down names but then continuously forgot them and pointed to couples and said the wrong names. Then he would walk away sometimes to seat a group other times not sure why but would be gone for an extended period of time considering people kept entering the area. It was a disorganized mess! They should have had more people assigned to seating, looking for groups that were seated in the bar, etc. There should have always been someone at the host table. Once we were seated, the food was wonderful but slow arriving. Our server was great. Will continue to come to Oregon Grille but maybe not on Valentine's Day!
The atmosphere was very nice. The waiter was amazing! He was very helpful and extremely polite. The food was absolutely dreadful. I ordered the 3 pound lobster. It was so over cooked that it literally took 2 whole minutes to chew one bite. My girlfriend ordered the rack of lamb. The texture of the meat was good. But the sauce they use to season the meat was beyond words horrible, practically inedible. I would go there again for desert or drinks, but definitely not for food.
The food tasted great but it took us 3 hours to get out. Every table around us would get there order taken and food very fast. Our waiter barely stopped to take our order. We had to stop him and ask him to take our order. Lots of time we would make eye contact with him while our plates were empty or we needed something. Like I said very nice place, huge sides and great steak. But our server needs to hustle up. Especially on Valentine’s Day dinner. I figured the restaurant would want to get table moving to get more people in and out. I don’t think we will be coming back next Valentine’s Day.
First experience here and it was ok. Atmosphere and weight staff were excellent. The lamb I was told was awesome, however the clam casino and scallops were not. Clams were good except for the amount of sand I had to chew thru. The bacon wrapped scallopes were cooked perfectly, but again had bits of sand. Having to chew sand ruins it for me. I can understand the occasional bits of sand and know that some means fresh, but that was way to much. All in all was a good experience, but if I’m paying that much for a dish I don’t want to eat sand.
I made a reservation for 6 for a 2pm lunch on a Saturday, which I knew I really didn't need. We were there for a special occasion and arrived to find we had been put in a small, somewhat private room, to which we were pleasantly surprised. The food was good, we had an excellent time and could cut loose a little without disturbing anyone else. It couldn't have worked out better if we had planned it that way. Jamie, our server, was wonderful and took care of whatever we needed, in addition to putting up with our silliness! It was a simple, but special occasion, and a wonderful time all the way around.
My 2nd favorite restaurant in Baltimore (after Woodbury Kitchen) and had another great experience. New host, Bill, was engaging as was the wait staff. Great bar and I prefer to sit inside next to the fireplace. Steak au poivre is the best entree. Good wine list.
We went during Restaurant Week. Some of us ordered from that menu, others from the regular menu. The food was good, nicely presented and served, and the staff was excellent - friendly and efficient. There was live music downstairs but because of the size of our group we were seated upstairs - not as attractive but fine. (They were accommodating a size change, which was very nice of them.) Oregon Grill definitely gets an A.
When you book, let your server know if you want to be in the dining room, the bar or the happy hour alley. We ended up in the empty alley that is usually used for happy hour (although we went for dinner) and that was a bummer because I was looking forward to the live music (piano playing). We had a great meal and conversation though. So overall, it was still a very nice evening.
Oregon Grill never fails. Everything was outstanding. The host phoned several hours before the res to make certain that everything would be all right and meet my expectations. We were greeted by him upon arrival and immediately made to feel special. We enjoyed sitting upstairs, complete with the fireplace. Charming! Our waiter was fantastic, and even walked all eleven of us downstairs to personally tell each of us “Thanks and good night!” Restaurant Week menu was great, with no skimping. Of course, the horse decor had our two riders, who had never been there, in awe. Thanks to ALL.
We recently moved to Maryland and thought Baltimore County Restaurant Week would be a great opportunity to try out this well-known local restaurant that so many people had told us about. The ambiance was very quiet and intimate, and our server Todd was great. However, the food was disappointing, and we guessed it might have been that we ordered from the $35 fixed Restaurant Week menu. I think this was a missed opportunity for the Oregon Grille to introduce some new patrons to their wonderful food, because the food from the fixed menu was far from wonderful. The mushroom soup was very salty, the beef tenderloin was tough and under-seasoned, and the rainbow trout was fine, but nothing special. Most disappointing were the desserts, a brownie that tasted like it came from a box, and a huge square of "bread pudding" that was just chopped up dinner rolls -- no liquid, no sauce, no cream, and no flavor. Having tasted real bread pudding in New Orleans, this was somewhat of a travesty.
We anticipated smaller portions due to the smaller price tag for the Restaurant Week menu, but we did not expect the Oregon Grille to sacrifice its culinary standards to this level. I would still like to taste the food everyone around here raves about, but I'm not sure I will be back. I feel a little taken advantage of by this Restaurant Week experience.
This is a fine dining restaurant and I saw someone dining there with shorts and flip flops on and it was totally disgusting. I knew there use to be a dress code, men had to wear jackets if that is relaxed now fine, but shorts and flip flops who wants to eat next to someone looking at their feet. This is not a restaurant by the water. We are spending top dollar, I hope this doesn't happen again.
The Oregon Grille was always a favorite of mine, but this time I left disappointed. My husband ordered from the restaurant week menu and despite the fact it included three courses the portions were very skimpy. He left the restaurant hungry! I ordered from the regular menu, surf and turf which was a $58.00 entree. While the steak was good the lobster tail was terrible. Not only was it rubbery, it just did not taste good. The entree was a total disappointment! I will say the waiter was very good and the atmosphere did not disappoint, but overall I was disappointed. A $58 entree should never be a let down.
Outstanding, as always. The lobster (surf and turf) was a little chewy, but not sure that's the fault of the restaurant. The filet was incredible.
Our table was on the porch; not a fan of that. Our first time with such a table, so now we know what to ask not to have. Waiter was good.
Went here specifically because of restaurant week. After being promptly seated, waited at least 15 minutes for server to appear at table. Did not offer the restaurant week menu, which we then requested. After another 15 minutes, server appeared again, without the restaurant week menu. Asked for the special restaurant week menu a second time. Meal arrived over an hour after being seated. A little frustrating, as the restaurant was not full. Meal was delicious though.
Overall our dining experience was wonderful! We sat in the main dining room with the piano player which was entertaining and the Oregon Grille had a nice vibrant ambiance perfect for a birthday celebration. Meals were delicious! Maitre de and staff overall were all very pleasant adding to our enjoyment. We had a few bumps which I would not have expected, no fresh pepper offered with our salads, large soup spoons accompanied our coffee & our desserts and no offer of coffee refill even though other guests at our table were still awaiting their coffee drink. Our server was fine yet perhaps a bit new or just super busy.
We have been going to The Oregon Grille for years and have found it to be uneven. This was a birthday dinner for four. There was a problem with the soda machine and our server did her best--even going so far as to switch out the syrup container but it still wasn't right. I ordered Prime Rib RARE -- it came out more like Medium Well. A mistake that never should be made with good beef. And it was cold -- along with the onions. Very disappointing.
