Silver Grille Ratings and Reviews

We absolutely loved this place. We have recommended it to many in the last few days. We will be back for sure.
Fabulous time. Great Food
We had a double birthday celebration with 6 people. From the moment we sat down until we walked out the door Everything was great. It was a good sign that it was quiet at our table because everyone was so impressed with the food and friendly service that they didn't talk much. I've never had a better meal and I've been to hundreds of restaurants in my life. I can't imagine a better place to impress a special person or business associate.
Never a disapointment
Silver Grill is always good! We have never had a so-so meal they have always been the best. The amount is perfect the deserts are great and the staff makes you feel at home.
A most enjoyable evening. The food was superb and the service was equally superb. A thank you to the Silver Grill.
Silver Grille is a gem!
Amazing food, lovely presentation, superb attention to detail, very friendly staff. Will always visit when we are anywhere near Silverton!
Fabulous local restaurant
Fabulous local restaurant with a varied menu and fabulous chef. worth a return visit.
So fresh and tasty, must try
Locally owned by a chef and his wife, this local , fresh restaurant has daily specials that are always a hit. The Vietnamese spring rolls using fresh organic greens from the Chef's own garden with a spicy peanut sauce and a ginger chili sauce were so fabulous I could have just eaten those. But the specials on this day were the slo cooked Tri tip, halibut, and a rabbit cake.. I opted for the NY which fabulous as was the oh so fresh ravioli. A must try if you are in the area!
We are never disappointed when dining at Silver Grille. The food stands up to anything a larger market might offer, and exceeds the quality to be found in many renowned locations elsewhere. It's exceptionally good for a romantic meal or special celebration, but we can't help returning regularly to sample the changing menu. You won't regret a visit to Silver Grille.
Enjoyable dinner out with friends
Shared dinner with another couple; our first visit. We opted to dine w/out wine though their offerings are extensive. Two had ravioli which they found a little too salty but liked it all the same. I tried the special that night; lamb. It was 'ok' but overly chewy (had to set aside several bites which were unfortunately 'un-negotiable'. Other dinner guest had lamb with pasta and loved it. Our foursome split two servings of a lemon-blueberry cake dessert which everyone loved. All in all, it was an enjoyable dinenr.
Gem of Silverton
My husband and I ate at Silver Grille last Saturday, and it was the best meal we've had in years! Every course was phenomenal, from appetizer thru dessert. The wine list was excellent, and the service was wonderful. We will definitely be back!
Great food & service, enjoyable, delicous dinner!
Had 7pm reservations, greeted politely as they were busy, but in short time frame taken to a nice table in the corner (we had the same table on our anniversary last summer!). The waiter (Jeff) informed us of the specials and took our drink order. He then brought us very nice bread and olive oil/balsamic mixture to dip it into. I ordered the Lobster Bisque soup which was outstanding. For dinner my wife had the Quinoa Cauliflower that was presented beautifully and she thoroughly enjoyed it (it was good to see an excellent Vegetarian dish on the menu!) I had the special, Blanquette de Veau, that was superb. We shared a Chocolate/Peanut Butter Dome for dessert. Dinner was only $72 and left Jeff and Naomi a nice tip. My only suggestion would be for them to introduce themselves (as I used to when waiting tables), I only found out their names when the check arrived. Would go back here for dinner in a second, both times we have had fantastic meals, highly recommend you make reservations. Enjoy!
Great out of the way place
We were very impressed all around with this restaurant. Reservations a must, small seating area. The food was outstanding and service was great. Very friendly people.
Great food and awesome service
Great food and awesome service
Table for one
It was a most enjoyable food experience. I was by myself and was seated in a really nice private spot where I could enjoy my dinner and do some people watching. The food and service were exceptional. I look forward to my next visit.
we hadn't been here in a long time (e.g. 10 yrs) as we live 30 miles away. the service and food were excellent. the waitress was helpful in choosing wine and I loved it: a blend w/ carignan which I'd never had, but loved: it did not have a lot of tannin, but was spicy. we took other reviewers' recommendations and loved the gorgonzola bruschetta and the naughty librarian salad whose dressing was light and complimented the salad , cheese and crunchy nuts very well. my salmon w/ bernaise sauce and was superbly cooked! the crème brulee for dessert was also excellent. we WILL go back, no matter the distance for that kind of food,service and ambiance!
We go out of our way to the Silver Grille
When hiking at Silver Falls, visiting the Oregon Gardens or Mt Angel Abby or any of the many regional nurseries, we always make it a point to dine at the Silver Grille. Its location in the heart of Silverton is perfect for roaming around this interesting and entertaining little town. The food is delicious and the service is always prompt and welcoming. It compares favorably with many of the better well known Portland eateries.
Butternut squash soup was AWESOME!
Butternut squash soup was AWESOME!
Drove over from Salem for dinner and it was well worth the trip. Interesting and nicely prepared appetizer and entree options. I enjoyed the lamb shank with ratatouille special -- very flavorful. The atmosphere is nice but not at all stuffy. Service friendly and efficient. The wine list not huge but more than adequate. I would definitely return when I'm back in the area.
Outstanding food and service
Celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary here last week. Service was outstanding. Food exceptional. Choices you love, but don't make at home (Duck, Lamb). Pleasant atmosphere with elegance. Will return here on our next visit to Silverton, Oregon.
October evening at the Silver Grill
We enjoyed our dinner very much. The food was great.
had a fabulous dinner at the silver grille with friends. None of us had been there before. Outstanding food and terrific service. Food was fresh and prepared perfectly. We are accustomed to large city great food; this was comparable to a high end big city spot, but with charm and small town comfort. Thanks for such a memorable experience. We'll be back.
What a find!
From appetizer to dessert we were not disappointed. Just wish we lived closer so we could eat here more often!
The freshness of the ingredients and the quality of the food were both most impressive. Many thanks to our server and the chef for their recommendations.
Silver Grille would fit in easily in the ...
Silver Grille would fit in easily in the heart of a big city known for its great restaurants. Nothing went wrong. The well-curated, local menu was filled with unusual food pairings which delighted our palates. We had a fresh, juicy peach and tomato salad, a slow-cooked beef dish with house made pasta and an amazingly rich sauce, and perfectly cooked tri-tip steak with perfectly sautéed potatoes, fresh local vegetables, and another amazing sauce. The dessert chef is a magician. We had a dome of chocolate mousse with a blackberry mousse inside it covered with chocolate ganache and garnished with blackberries and cream, and a fresh peach and almond tart with vanilla ice cream. The wine list is extremely carefully selected. It includes European wines but emphasizes the best of the locals. Our Barbera was from an outstanding Oregon winemaker and was perfect with the two beef dishes. The small-town location is belied by the sophistication of the food and wine, but also by the tasteful design of the small restaurant and by the attentive service. For us it was an anniversary dinner, but we'll be back for everyday dinners too.
we shared another amazing meal at The Silver Grille again this past week. The food was some of the best I've enjoyed at a restaurant in years! I highly recommend this place.
Not this one
This place redeemed Silverton as a food destination. Definitely would go back!
Amazing Every Time!
The French trained chef is amazing! we have been here several times and he consistently delivers perfection! The Trip Tip Beef just melted in your mouth! The atmosphere is cozy and quiet very intimate. The staff is friendly. It is our favorite restaurant!
What a gem!!
We were visiting Silverton for a wedding and several locals suggested the Silver Grille for dinner. What a great find! It was truly the best dinner we have thoroughly enjoyed in years. A husband and wife own the restaurant, she warmly greeted us and suggested a fantastic wine. Her husband is the chef and his skills rival those of any big city chef. The menu changes daily and we were lucky enough to begin with a generous plate of housemade mozzarella, ricotta cheese and heirloom tomatoes. If that was the only dish I ate I would have been thrilled. So good! We then enjoyed some of the best prepared fresh salmon ever, with a delicate sauce and perfectly prepared vegetables. The homemade fettuccine served with slow roasted meat was savory and filling. We practically licked our plates clean as all the sauces were expertly prepared and well matched for the dishes. We will definitely come back to the Silver Grille next time we are in town and just wished this gem was closer to our own home. Do not pass up this wonderful little restaurant!
Silver Grille is one of the best in OR.
Located in the small and pretty town of Silverton, Silver Grille is a premier restaurant, featuring locally grown foods and sophisticated food preparation. The soups are always particularly fine. Dining here is always a special experience. A true family run restaurant with a small staff, it brings to mind wonderful places in small towns in France.
HIghly recommend for a special occasion!
We celebrated our 24th anniversary at Silver Grille and it was a very good experience. Excellent food and service! We definitely plan to return!
We were welcomed warmly. Great attention was paid to my food allergy needs. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. The food was very nicely prepared and delicious. Bravo.
Perfect place to celebrate a birthday!
My husband & I went to Silver Grille for the 2nd time this past weekend and were as pleased with it the 2nd time around as we were the first. My friend and I shared some appetizers and found them delicious, intriguing combinations of flavors, and filling! I appreciate how many gluten-free options there are on the menu. Makes it very easy for me to dine there!
Excellent food. Thank U Jeff..
The waitress was pleasant and friendly. We celebrated my sons 18th Birthday .Jeff made a special steak dinner for hum, he liked it so much he thanked the chef Jeff..
Continued Excellence, Silver Grill
The owner of the Silver Gill in Silverton, Oregon, continues to be on of this state's great chefs. A quiet little restaurant with wonderful local foods and an impressive wine list. Well worth the trip from Salem. in addition to a wonderful meal, we had one of the best desserts ever to finish the meal. Highly recommend.

As always the food and service nd presentation was wonderful.
Always great at Silver Grille
This little restaurant in the little town of Silverton is a gem. It consistently serves up the best in fine dining. We have been there at least 6 times and have never been disappointed. The food is wonderful and the service superb. The wine list is very good and reasonably priced. One of their specials this time was slow cooked tri tip which was melt in your mouth good. I asked for a cocktail before dinner, explaining to our waitress how I liked it, and it came out perfect. A perfect dinner. Can't wait to go back.
Great little Gem
Great little gem in a small town. Servers were helpful and friendly. Caesar salad was very good. Main course was outstanding and the chocolate dome dessert with grand marnier and raspberry was heavenly! Great find
A Great Find
Wonderful food! We had the tri-trip and the spinach salad. The tri-tip was cooked to perfection with a demi glace that was to live for! Husband and wife team very attentive to guests. We will definitely make this a stop on our next trip to the area

This is an outstanding restuarant and on par with any of the better Portland restuarants. I have always been impressed with Chef Nizlek's use of fresh local organic ingredients, modern and traditional cooking techniques and consistent delivery of high quality fantastic meals.
Food was amazing!
The food was great, staff friendly and helpful. We were hoping With a smaller menu it would be easy to make a decision but it all sounded too good we loved it so much we tried to make reservations for the next night but they were already full. Will definitely go again next time we are in the neighborhood.
