Tim Garling's Jackalope Grill Ratings and Reviews
Karen had the pork osco bucco which was excellent. I had the Jaeger Snitzel and was very disappointed by it as I had heard such glowing reports on it. I know Jaeger Snitzel !! I worked for a German company and spent much time in Germany! My old standby was always Jaeger Snitzel and have experienced the best at rather simple restaurants. What I had Friday was dry and overcooked. While the gravy (which makes Jaeger Snitzel, Jaeger Snitzel!!!) was tasty, there just wasn't enough of it. Maybe I should have asked for more gravy. Cabbage with it was good. I would also suggest pomme frits be offered as a substitute! Jackalopes is nicely decorated with a very pleasant ambience!!! Overall, dishes are over priced. We will be back but I won't do the Jaeger Snitzel again!!!
Been there a number of times before but, were blown away on a Monday evening for a birthday when we were the only ones in the restaurant. It wasn't because of poor reviews or prior experiences, just hit a night during a slow time. But, because of the sparse crowd, we were treated to an evening by our server, Richard, that was fit for a birthday girl. One of our favorites and Tim's creations are always something special!
Our server was absolutely marvelous, and every dish for ten people was prepared flawlessly and the presentation was gorgeous! Although separate checks were not possible, our server was able to let each couple pay separately. Thanks, Jackalope, for making our friends' get-together a wonderful experience!
Had a slight hiccup last time visiting Jackalope and just as we thought would happen, this experience lived up to all the ones prior and was absolutely perfect. Service was attentive and timely without any level of bother or false formality. Each of our 3 courses was right on point in regards to quality of ingredients, preparation and presentation. Nothing too flashy, but obviously prepared with care for both best taste and visual aesthetics. Remains our go to best spot in Bend.
Not up to usual standards. maybe there was a substitute cook because it was a Monday? Husband's "cordon blue" schnitzel was pretty bad. Regular schnitzel, with a few chunks of ham and cheese on top - no sauce. Both of our potato pancakes were not done - raw inside. Took forever to get our meals and people next to us were served a long time before we were.
Won't go back.
Delicious! Have been there a few times but first time for our 30 something daughter. She thought it quite lovely & beautiful presentation, very good food. Wine suggested was perfect (we had 3 different dinners & wine went well with all!) Hope to be back soon!!!
Menu was very exciting, so many great choices. However the kitchen disappointed 3 of us.
1. Jaeger sauce excellent but the schnitzel was overcooked, only 2 bites were taken, left the rest on the plate. Told our waitress and she shrugged. No offer to reduce the bill or free dessert, which we did have. Creme Brule was excellent.
2. Flatiron steak was really enjoyed by one of our party.
3. Vodka pasta with homemade italian sausage was okay but not outstanding. Too much red sauce. Sausage was unremarkable . Penne pasta might have helped instead of raddiatore.
4. Pork osso buco was not hot throughout. Reminded us of leftovers.
We'll return again in hopes that it was just an off night for the kitchen, hoping for a dining experience we can rave about.
We love the Jackalope Grill. It is one of the restaurants we frequent often. The menu is varied and excellent--there is something for everyone! The ambience is beautiful and romantic. The branches strewn with small green lights on the ceiling is so pretty.
My husband loves the filet. It is always cooked to perfection. I'm a fan of the schnitzel --so tasty with a wonderful mushroom sauce. My favorite on the plate is the sauerkraut. Unique and delicious. We always start with the escargot. So good!
Attentive but unobtrusive service add to the pleasure of the dining experience. This place always impresses.
It takes a lot for me to give a restaurant a perfect score, but our dinner at Jackolope Grill was top notch. New item on the menu was Halibut cheeks with a mushroom risotto . Absolutely melted in your mouth. Others had the seafood Cioppino, which excellent. Service was excellent--attentive but not intrusive. This was not our first time at Jackolope Grill, and it will definitely not be our last.
We had not eaten at Jackalope in 3+ years for no real reason, after our Anniversary dinner Monday, we will dine there more frequently. Despite also serving a large party, Beth Ann, our server, was attentive, offering tastes of the wines we were considering and delivering our courses in a timely manner.
My husband and I shared the mussels and the radicchio salad, both flavorful and a good share size. Both of our entrees were generous; I had the tombo tuna seared with a pink interior, my husband the rack of lamb. We each took half of our meals home for dinner the next night.
I'll be making a return visit this soon, the Jaeger Schnitzel looked like the perfect Winter dinner.
Nice ambiance from the moment you walk through the tree limb doorway. Ate on patio amidst their herb and veggie garden. Excellent service. The wine recommended was perfect. Both dinners, Duck with cherries and Osso Bucco, along with appetizer of calamari were all delicious.
Drinks were also very good.
We had high hopes for dinner here. We had checked previous reviews and it looked good when we walked by earlier that day. We asked to be seated outside on the inner patio. They had used folding chairs and tables - just awful - covered them with table clothes to hide the shabby look. Our waitress was rude from the get -go. I ordered an appetizer - they typical mozzarella & tomatoes on bruchetta. I took one bite and tasted badly burnt bread. I returned the item and did not have t replaced. The waitress was not customer service oriented at all. I had ordered the mussels for my main course and they were wonderful. Very plump and not overcooked. My husband ordered the fresh salmon dish and was pleased too. I think the restaurant is struggling - it was not busy for a Saturday night. I would not recommend this restaurant. The waitress was far too rude for my taste.
Absolutely loved their spicy tequila and their ability to accommodate gluten free. The menu was mislabeled with one dish and, the waitstaff were well aware and quick to share to assure a safe dining experience.
I had the claims as a appetizer and they were fabulous. I also had the pork osso buco which had a wonderful flavor however, the meat did not fall off the bone. Mind you, this did not stop me from enjoying that fabulous flavor I mentioned!
Great restaurant! Food was amazing and the service was prompt and wonderful also. We sat outside and it was really neat sitting in an outside area that was walled in by surrounding buildings and lots of plants. Nice urban touch. I highly recommend this restaurant for a date, special occasion or if you're trying to make a good impression with someone.
BEST cesar salad I ever had. We celebrated our 21st anniversary and sat in the courtyard. While it was a little cool the waiter (not ever our waiter) tried valiantly to light three different heaters. HIs efforts were much appreciated. Oh and the food was excellent.
Portions were relatively large. Drinks were slow to arrive. This is the third or fourth time here and the food was similar to our other visits. They had their regular menu and a rather large seasonal small plates and entre special menu.
Our favorite of many good Bend restaurants. First time we have been there where meal didn't wow us, as pear salad was pear mush on greens and not that tasty, mushroom risotto was under seasoned and somewhat overcooked, with salmon that was really underwhelming. Every meal til this has been top-notched though, so no dimming of this star in our opinion. Specialty drinks they offer are always great and desserts are always a treat.
This was our first time. We invited our Bend friends for dinner everyone enjoyed the food . But the best part was they seated us outback in a lovely garden setting ! We all enjoyed the food and the company Thank you to the friendly waiter who let us sit there for a couple of hours
