JORY Restaurant at The Allison Inn & Spa Ratings and Reviews
We live a couple miles from the Jory and go there at least a couple times a month for dinner. With the exception of it being difficult to get into, the food, service, and ambiance are always incredible. We know most of the permanent wait staff now and appreciate their attention to detail and pleasant service.
We just moved to West Linn a year ago from Northern CA and decided to make it a monthly tradition to go to a nice restaurant for brunch. Once visiting Jory we decided this is where we wanted to spend our once a month brunch. Never have been disappointed. Everyone is so friendly and the menu changes each time we come. We are never rushed we can relax and have a very pleasant time. We look forward to our visit. Thank you Jory Staff for your outstanding service.
The valet parking staff are wonderful too, they meet us with smiles and a nice greeting.
Sending us on our way with smiles and a welcome back soon makes for a nice day.
I want to say that I had dinner with two other people and theirs was fine. In my case my main entrée, which was the Lamb, was very poor. The meat was mostly grizzle. When I mentioned it to the hostess as we were leaving she said she would let the kitchen know. Not the response I wanted to hear from a very expensive restaurant.
We live just up the hill from The Allison and come for brunch or lunch quite often. This was maybe the 2nd or 3rd time for dinner and it was the most horrible dinner thus far. The cocktails, wine and first and middle courses were great. The entrees however, were awful. No flavor, dry and an all around disappointment. Looks like we will be sticking with brunch and lunch from now on!
It was hubby's 70th birthday, so a special meal was in order. Our waiter was terrific and attentive, and made good suggestions. I opted for the sea scallops -- note that this dish includes only two scallops, and our waiter suggested I add an extra scallop (for additional charge), and he was right - two would not have been quite enough. And I was delighted by the preparation, a great combination of flavors and textures. The hubs chose the 8-oz. ribeye steak, which was very tender and cooked a perfect medium rare, with delicious seasoning. The potato accompaniment was an au gratin style and yummy, albeit rather rich. A great experience as always!
Here for lunch Christmas Eve. Such gracious servers and scrumptious lunch selections. Two of ordered the burger which came with fries. Excellently prepared with Wabi beef. I had the fisherman stew, also excellent with the broth being light and at the same time rich. All seafood was fresh and delicious. My daughter ordered the huevoa rancheros. Also excellent
Will do this again next year.
We had superb meals with quite a few choices. We had a very attentive waiter who forsaw our every need. The view was terrific. We felt like we got our money's worth, even thoughit is on the expensive side. The pumpkin creme brule for dessert was outstanding.
The food is always amazing here. The staff is incredibly attentive. You are never rushed through a course. One of the biggest things I noticed is that your next course will not come out until you are done with your present one. The value is in the food, atmosphere, and service.
Wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. Our server was able to answer questions we had & helped set the tone for a relaxed evening. Food is delicious and portions are generous. Presentation was beautiful. Atmosphere is not pretentious, just comfortable. The extra touches (palate cleansing sorbet & macaroons to end the meal) were a wonderful addition to our food choices.
Per their advertising, very fresh ingredients of quality! All was pseudo-elegant, and truly a lovely setting! But there were no flavours/savours/tasty-treat moments! BLAH, BLAND, BORING non-personality dishes...we had a squash salad, halibut and chips and 2 hamburger/cheeseburgers! Only 'good' part was the french fries!
We are regular patrons of Jory, often stopping by on a whim to sit at the kitchen counter and let Chef Amy feed us whatever she recommends off the menu that day. We also book the chef's table at least once a year and gather our friends together for a meal that is almost performance art.
Whether you're looking for a casual place for lunch, or an elegant place for dinner, Jory covers all the bases, and does so with excellent service and fantastic food!
After spending a couple of days in the Oregon Wine Country, our group of five ladies (age 35-65) enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Jory. Everything from the Mimosas to the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict to the pancakes and omelette were extremely tasty and beautifully presented. Having everyone's meal delivered in unison by the servers was quite a show and made us feel so special!! Wonderful conclusion to our "girls' trip".
Misty the server was awesome. Gave us some recommendations on wineries to visit in the area.
Her replacement server, while Misty was on break, wasn't really there. Only showed up during the bill time. So I hope Misty got the total tip.
The food: Ordered the heirloom tomato salad. Very very good. Bread very very good.
My halibut sandwich was awesome. The combination of flavors made it work very well.
My friend ordered the hamburger which cost more than mine. The burger OK, the truffled fries were worth the whole dish. Truffled fries were spectacular.
We will be back. Next time I am going to take my husband here. We had outside dining. A beautiful day, quiet and this place makes life worth living.
Jory is a must while in Newberg! To visit the on site Chef's Garden, then review the menu and see what your eating was picked so freshly and cleanly with care. What a wonderful menu, unforgettable food and a phenomenal atmosphere. I will always want to go back.
The team at the Alison needs to work on improved service. Sat a good 10 minutes before the waiter showed. Then he asked if we had chosen a drink yet....Problem was they had never even brought us a drink menu. We weren't the only couple complaining as we heard another couple across from us very frustrated as well.
This being said, the food was wonderful and the restaurant ambience is very nice...
My husband and I spent the last night of our spectacular Oregon vacation dining at The Jory. It was an incredible evening, fabulous food and outstanding service without hovering. Loved every moment! Geoffrey was terrific. We can't wait for our next stay at The Allison Inn & Spa and visit to The Jory.
We stayed at the beautiful Allison Inn, and had the pleasure of dining at the Jory restaurant. The restaurant has a beautiful outdoor area. The tables are not close and very private. We wanted something light after a day of wine tasting. We ordered a salad and gazpacho appetizer, and then split the salmon entree. All were well prepared and the portions were generous. Glad we split/shared our order. We also tried a couple of wine tastings, which was a fun way to sample other Willamette wines.
Service was attentive and professional. Definitely one of the nicest restaurants in the area.
One complaint I had:
We wanted a later reservation, as we typically eat around 8. I asked for a later reservation, and was told they were fully booked. So we kept the 6:30 reservation that I made 5 weeks in advance. The Allison recommends to book in advance. As the evening progressed, the dining room was under capacity easily till 8pm. The Jory could have accommodated a later reservation. Disappointing.
Let me start with the positive aspects of our meal at Jury's. The meal was outstanding . I had the pork loin with peaches and my husband had the Wagyu beef. Incredibly well played and super good. We had the pork belly appetizer which was so deliciously salty and yummy.
On the negative side when we got there a few minutes early, without a good explanation they said if you could wait in the bar until your appointed time. Then they never came and got us. At almost 10 minutes after our reserved time , my husband had to go ask if our table was ready . Needless to say this started out our evening poorly!
