Silver Grille Ratings and Reviews

We have been to Silver Grille twice for special occasions and find the ambiance and food to be excellent. This restaurant is a real treat and well priced for the quality and attention to detail you receive.
Take the scenic back road to Silverton and spend time walking around the charming downtown area afterward - great fun and exceptionally enjoyable. We will return again and again.

We dined here while staying at the Oregon Garden Resort. My husband ordered the lamb special and it was prepared to perfection. I had the ravioli and loved it. The service was friendly, fun and informative. True farm to table experience, even the mozzarella was made in house. We won't wait for our next visit to the Oregon Garden to dine here again, it's worth the drive from Hillsboro.

This is our new favorite restaurant for special occasions. The food is locally produced, environmentally friendly, and prepared well. Each dish is artfully presented. The tomato and mozzarella salad was particularly beautiful, and the heirloom tomatoes were delicious. I ordered pork medallions with assurance that the pig from which they came was treated humanely on a local farm.

We most appreciated how genuinely welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable everyone who we interacted with at Silver Grille was. Everything we ordered was presented as well as it tasted. Love that they support local farms and ranches.

We found this restaurant from Open Table reviews, and we were definitely not disappointed. What a wonderful find in little Silverton. It would have been a wonderful find on NW 23rd or SE Division in Portland! The food, wine, service and ambience were all excellent. We'll definitely go back and have already recommended it to friends.

One of the few places where, no matter the menu, I always find something unique but not weird. I love dining here and would come back often if I lived closer. On our last visit we had a delicious Oregon Pinot Noir to complement our opening "Naughty Librarian" salad :-) and the strawberry tomato gazpacho. Both refreshing and delicious. For entrees we enjoyed a perfect Oregon albacore filet with fresh pesto and the crispy polenta complemented by a vibrant and flavorful ratatouille. The blackberry mousse with yogurt crumbles made a perfect ending to a pure Oregon meal.

Silver Grille is a true anchor to the cute, quaint town of Silverton. There are a few places to eat and drink in this area and although they are quite good, Silver Grille is the best of them. The service is excellent and the food quality is on par with many of the better restaurants found in Portland. The wine list is VERY good for a smaller restaurant in a smaller town. I highly recommend coming here when you're in the area and I would recommend a reservation even on the week days.

There we 3 people in our party. Two of our dinners were very good. The third - pork cutlets - were dry and unflavorful. We told the waiter but he did not seem to be that interested. Caesar salads were plentiful but not a lot of flavor. The featured salad was very good. Desserts were good.

Everything about Silver Grille was amazing! When my husband's cousins from Georgia came to visit, we wanted to take them to dinner someplace for local cuisine and ambiance. We found Silver Grille, and decided to give them a try.
From the moment we walked in, the experience was perfect. We were seated immediately. The drinks were wonderful. Dinner was superb! There were four of us in our party; we each ordered something different, and we were each delighted with our selection.
We will definitely be back to Silver Grille!

Cocktails, wine, special appetizer, entrees and dessert were all wonderful and such a great deal. $122 total.
When I reserved the table, I mentioned it was our anniversary and when they brought dessert. Each of our plates had "Happy Anniversary" spelled out in chocolate on the plate. Such a nice end to a fabulous meal.

Chef and his wife service the tables and are happy to chat with diners about the food and wine. Fresh local ingredients, something for everyone. The bruschetta, the mushroom tart, the ravioli, the asparagus bisque and the berry mousse are outstanding. This is my third time here; we come whenever we are in town. Can't wait to go back.

This restaurant just never disappoints! Our financial situation does not allow us to eat here often (certainly not as often as we'd like), but when we have guests come to stay with us for a few days we always take them to Silver Grille, and it is always a wonderful dining experience.

A trip worth taking to Silverton. My wife and I went for an anniversary dinner and had a memorable experience. Service was great and the food was outstanding (including a sous-vide tri tip that was incredibly flavorful and tender). Would recommend highly. We will return.

The chef/owner snd his were excellent hosts and made the dining experience superb. As a chef, I appreciated the thoughtful way the ingredients were combined for a delicious and unpretentious dish. Loved Silver Grille and will definitely go back.
Excellent food and great prices!
We have been to Silver Grille several times and are never disappointed. We like to order appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts "family style" so we can try many different things. Definitely best as a long dining experience and not a quick meal.
Our 39th aniversary
The Tri-Tip with Morel Mushroom sauce was excellent. The waitress helped us find a wine that my wife and I would enjoy along with the meal, The Chef was out greeting and meeting everyone and even bussed a couple of tables. Small restaurant with a romantic setting (maybe has around 30 tables at the most) Older small town feel and décor. Food was excellent along with the service. We enjoyed it immensely, top notch meal for the money.
Silver Grill May 29
This was a marvelous dining experience. The food was very delicious. The service was excellent. The seating was perfect and every dish was served with grace. The was our second time dining at the Silver Grill and we were not disappointed. This food is so delicious and tasty. The desert was just marvelous as was every dish. Thank you for a wonderful time.

The menu celebrates local vendors and seasonal ingredients and displays the excellence that Jeff Nizlek brings to the kitchen. We've been sampling his fare for a dozen years and love the place. It may force us to move to Silverton.
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.
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!
