As we stayed at the resort for two night ...
As we stayed at the resort for two nights we had dinner both nights included in our package. The first night we ordered the New York steak and it was a little tough. The server forgot our Cesar salad to start but we ordered it the next night. The White House wine was great.
The second night was an incredible dinner. We shared the Cesar salad and it was divided for us. The dressing was delicious but the romaine should have been colder. I had the Oso boca pork and it was fabulous the potatoes were a Yukon gold mashed and went so well with the jalapino cream sauce. My husband had the seafood penna and he loved the cream sauce which wasn't to heavy and loaded with seafood.
We will certainly be back.

This is a beautiful restaurant, with a view of the Oregon Gardens. Our food was excellent. But the service was slow, not only our wait person but, she said, the kitchen got behind. There seems to be a big rush between 6 and 7 p.m. We have eaten here several times and this was the first negative experience we've had. We will go again.

We had friends recommend the Oregon Gardens to us. We ask for the package. It was a lovely deal. Our stay, dinner, breakfast and entrance to the gardens all included. It was so nice to have dinner and reservations all taken care of in advance. Dinner was very good. Service couldn't have been better. I did not mention how nice it was to walk from our room to the dinning room and not have to get in the car. So relaxing ! Thank you Oregon Gardens

We had brunch, lunch and dinner at Oregon Garden Resort this week and it was very good. The staff is fantastic and the food amazing. I had the best steak I have had in years. The BLAT was so yummy. When I reserved our room, there was an option for a free dinner for two with a bottle of wine. I wondered what the catch was -- but I reserved it anyway -- NO catch. It was just as they said. Even better. Love the staff and the food. Thank you OGR.

We are Oregon Garden members and were there for the 4th of July (it was crazy, I don't recommend it). We decided to kill some time and have dinner with our 4 kids so we made a reservation at this restaurant. It was very nice, there was a quite place for us to sit with all of our kids. The waiter was funny and the good was decent but not spectacular. I had steak and prawns (as did my husband). Cooked well so no real complaints, just blah. The Mac and Cheese, however, was good. My kids had that and it tasted very nice (home made sauce, not generic). Overall, we will likely eat there again when we stay at the resort but not an all the time thing.

This is a great place to go if you are just wanting to unwind and relax if your in a hurry and wanting something quick your out of luck. The food was good and the service is great although it took some time to get our order. We will be back to try some other things we saw on the menu which is full of great choices.

Our server was wonderful. The management was very responsive to our special request and the food was very good and a good value. We were very pleased with the setting and the atmosphere was so pleasant for our special occasion.

The food & service was very nice. Since my husband uses a walker, we couldn't go down the steps to be closer to the view. They offered us seating in a room separate from the main dining experience but cautioned us that there were 2 large groups in the room. We opted to not go in the room since it was noisy, so the only thing left was a booth that was next to where wait staff frequently walked by for beverages and food. We had to wait while they set up the booth. Not very nice for those with walkers or wheelchairs. Outdoor patio seating wasn't an option either because any route to it required one to use stairs. We were disappointed with the overall lack of accessibility in the restaurant.

Out of the way for a typical meal, but location is great if you're at the Gardens. Service was slow despite being mid-week. Two of us ordered the special, guacamole burger. The waitress took our group photo and brought mustard at my sister's request. She did not return to check on us. There was another waitress whose attention we finally got...as both burgers came without guacamole. By that time we'd eaten half of our lunch. I also realized I had two bottom buns for my burger. The waitress did give us 10% of our lunch. If we were in the area, we might go again, but I would definitely double check my order. The burger was good...but just a burger at that point.
Good prime rib
Our family spent the weekend at Oregon Gardens over Mothers Day, and had dinner on Saturday night. Because of the size of our group, we were seated in the separate room without a view of the gardens. I dislike this room because it is loud and doesn't have the view. I think it would change the ambiance a lot if this room were carpeted. The acoustics of the room make it noisy. As it is, it feels a little like "second best", which is not what we wanted. We wanted a more elegant experience.
In fact, I was with a larger group of women in December and we were seated in the separate room. We rejected it, which means our group was split up in the main dining room, which was not an ideal option.
That being said, the food and service were good. We appreciated the wine that came with the meals. The prime rib was great. The menu was nice with a good selection. Since we were in a separate room, it took a while for the waitress to attend to us. But once she knew we were there, she was attentive and gave good service.

The fried avocado was delicious! The chocolate cherry creme brûlée was the absolutely the best I have ever eaten. That alone is worth returning for! The entire experience exceeded my greatest expectations. Highly recommend this restaurant!
It's hard to say which aspect of my (birthday!) dinner was worse. The seating is quite uncomfortable. Booths are too small for four adults, and there were only these uncomfortable booths.
The menu is small and unappealing. Not liking any of the entrees, I ordered the crab cake appetizer with a specialty salad. The crab cakes were cold and fishy. The salad was drenched in enough liquid so that the pear, lettuce, and hazelnuts were inedible. My husband's grilled salmon came smothered in berry sauce and tasted very strange. My daughters pasta was so salty she couldn't eat it.
Drinks: My husband ordered a gin martini and gave detailed instructions on how he wanted it made. He said twice to use minimal vermouth, if any at all. The martini came back tasting only of vermouth. He usually is quiet and uncomplaining, but he sent it back and refused another.
Dessert was okay. Service was amiable.
But this is not a place to spend any money. Lots of better restaurants in Silverton.
Too pricey for food quality
The food was not as good as I expected, I felt as though they were trying to have a "fancy" menu by complicating food dishes unnecessarily. The food was far too high priced in relation to quality. The cheese plate has dried cranberries, blueberries, and pears with random cheeses that were not paired well with the fruit given. I feel as though the restaurant decor is too outdated for the ambience and food quality that you pay for.
The drive from the Oregon Garden entrance to the restaurant was very dark. (Better lighting is needed for evening dining). The restaurant itself was too bright for a romantic dinner.
The dinner menu was pretty limited. The salmon dinner we had was excellent.
Service was fair. I think our waitress forgot about getting our dessert.
Overall, we were pleased. We will definitely go back.
Ample food but not spectacular....
Ceasar salad had romaine and croutons and waaaay too much dressing. Pre dinner bread was good but not house made I would bet. Came with butter which the morning breakfast brunch did NOT. Spinach mushroom lasagna was okay but the top was so over warmed or cooked it was like trying to cut through rubbery noodle. Seafood penne pasta had lots of seafood but again OVER sauced. Waitress was almost too attentive but well meaning. Would try elsewhere in Silverton next stay....did here because of convenience. Prices were reasonable. Not a "foodie place"...wish it had been.
Service was slow. Food was cold. Price was high
Made reservations in advance. Arrived a little early and had to wait past our reservation time. The service was extremely slow then my food came out cold. The couple next to us got up and left because the service was so bad.
I liked the atmosphere or ambiance, great appetizers, I ordered a bacon wrapped pork loin which was bland and pricey for the portion size, my wife's new york steak was tough and cold, and after the main course was brought out the servers seemed to disappear and everything was great until that point. It was disappointing as this is where we chose to go for our 15th anniversary and had high hopes for a new place to go. We where comped the steak which was not eaten and given a dessert. Another downside is you have to pay $5.00 to park even with dinner reservations. I don't think we will go back any time soon.
Not what we expected
We ate at the restaurant on New Years Eve. We requested a table by the window overlooking the Oregon Garden when we reserved, which we did not get. We had to request the bread that was supposed to have been served when we first sat down. We both ordered steaks. Both steaks had gristle running down the length of the steak, which made it hard to cut. My partner finally returned her steak for a new one. I did not, but wish I would have.
After enjoying the Christmas Lights and ice skating, our family had dinner at Oregon Garden
restaurant. They were very accommodating for our large group (10) and seated us in a separate room along with another large party which wasn't a problem at all. Service was slow although friendly, the food was good and the view awesome. All in all, a great night at Oregon Garden. The Open Table service is great!
Oregon Garden Resort
We come here often, usually on the Dinner Pkg. For the price, it is a fantastic deal. It is a great place if you want to bring your dog along. The resort is attached to Oregon Gardens and we are able to have our pet with us outdoors on the patio for meals along with enjoying the gardens. The rooms are always clean and well kept. Winter isn't a particularly good time for the gardens, but early spring or fall is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Guest of the resort are allowed in the gardens prior to opening to the public.
It Was Okay - Nothing Special
I may be spoiled living in Portland - a great place for fantastic food and outstanding service - but when I go to a restaurant and spend $60 on two cocktails, an appetizer, and two entrees, I expect the quality of food to be worth $60, especially when the service isn't 20% of $60 tip-worthy. Our server was obviously new, fairly nervous, and awkward, but he was kind and made sure that we were taken care of. The food didn't really blow me away either, and I really wanted it to! I ordered a salmon dish with a blueberry compote for my entree and all the flavors were just so-so. My boyfriend ordered the rosemary chicken pasta and this was also bland. The only food we really felt excited about was the crostini appetizer, and that's because it comes with a large pile of roasted garlic cloves (we're both crazy about garlic) and the goat cheese, but the toasted bread was so-so and there wasn't enough bread for the number of toppings on the platter (either serve it with less toppings or more bread).
My boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary by staying in the Oregon Garden Resort. Naturally, we made reservations for the restaurant so we wouldn't have to drive (and we were told that reservations were recommended). We didn't need reservations. We arrived at 5:30 for dinner on a Friday night, and when we left close to 7, most of the tables were still open.
Service was quick and friendly. I wasn't disappointed, but I wasn't impressed either. For such a great resort, the resort could really benefit from honing in on their menu and their serving staff to make it an unforgettable experience.
Needless to say, we drove in to Silverton for dinner on Saturday night.
Sadly I am unable to recommend this restaurant.
We stayed at the resort for a birthday get away. Dinner was included in our package. A few hours before dinner we wanted to have some wine in our room which we had brought from home. No corkscrew in the room so we asked at the front desk and were told that the restaurant will open it for a $10.00 fee. We didn't want to drink it in the restaurant but we were still told we had to pay a $10.00 fee or we could buy a corkscrew. We did neither. Not very accommodating. Our dinner reservations were at 6:00. We were able to get in earlier. Pretty empty. Our waiter was nice and attentive. The food was not at all what we expected. My husband had the Seafood platter. Veggies were cooked perfectly .The Shrimp was good, the Scallops squishy and inedible. I had the breaded Chicken with veggies, once again the veggies were terrific the chicken breading black on one side, of course that was face down on the plate. Once cut into it was DRY. Not a spec of moisture. I attempted one bite and decided I didn't care for the dry and rubbery texture. I didn't even want to bring it home to my dog. The waiter came to clear our plates and didn't ask how the meal was so we volunteered the information. Assuring him $$ his service was appreciated. They did offer to reduce the bill and we accepted. I would have preferred the great meal instead, that I had been looking forward to since making our reservations over a month ago. I wanted to purchase each of our children (3) a room & dinner get away but soon decided there are other places interested in providing great customer service even at the expense of popping a cork for free. This was just our experience, but it is our last experience at the Resort and restaurant. When checking out we weren't even asked if we enjoyed our stay. Guess it is assumed everyone has a wonderful time. Maybe it was better they didn't ask. The gardens are beautiful and wondrous all year long and for those we will continue to return and enjoy.
Pretty view, tasty dinner
Our server was attentive, answered our questions and efficiently took our order. We were seated near a window and could watch the light dim as the sun went down over the garden. We enjoyed conversation over a tasty meal in a quiet, pleasant atmosphere.
gluten free friendly
Being gluten free, it is always tricky to find a place that serves gluten free bread/buns for sandwiches or gf pasta. They have it all! They had great gf sourdough bread for the club sandwich and a different gf bread for the grilled turkey sandwich. Both were expect. We didn't try the bun or pasta.
