We started with the bacon wrapped dates, which were delicious. My husband had the salmon, and I had the Osso Bucco- both were excellent. Our server was very attentive, friendly, and very knowledgeable of the menu. The view of the garden is beautiful. We will return.

We dined with two adults and a 10 and 14 year old (our kids). The steaks, pasta, salads, and soups we had were all excellent and well prepared. There is a kids menu with the usual fare (burgers, chicken strips, etc). The service was excellent; waiter was prompt, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.
The ambiance is warm and comfortable. High ceilings, yet it felt cozy.
My only knock against the place is that it's on the expensive side. We had no dessert or liquor, and one of our kids ate off the kids menu, and it still cost us over $100 ($130 with tip). It's a nice restaurant, but it is not nice enough to merit prices like that. Wind list prices were outrageous. A glass of wine should not cost $9 when I can buy a whole bottle for $15. I know liquor is always heavily marked up in restaurants, but this was ridiculous.

We found this restaurant in in a list from the Portland newspaper as a place with a Thanksgiving buffet. We drove about 50 miles to get there, so it was a trek with holiday traffic. They sat us in the bar on large easy chairs with a small table in the middle. It was uncomfortable and no way to eat a large meal! There was a normal 2 person table nearby where no one sat at for the duration of our meal, making us more upset as the meal went on! Finally, my sister did say something and we were compensated, but we drove 50 miles to be treated like this?? The spread had a lot of variety and was OK. The sweet potatoes and the blueberry blintzes were the best. The turkey was displayed as a pan of mixed white and dark meat bits of meat, mostly dark. Again, hey, this is Thanksgiving, and isn't turkey the main component? Overall, a fun adventure, but not one we'll repeat.

The prices would leave you to believe it was a fine dining experience but the food was less than stellar. The apple pie was still frozen when set out on the buffet. It was made at the kitchen but frozen and not brought out soon enough to thaw but was set out anyway. The ham tasted like cardboard. The apple juice was obviously a concentrate but enough water was not added so it wasn't good. We added it to our water glasses and it was much better. The service was extraordinary but we were in a room that didn't have any views so it was not special.

We went for Thanksgiving brunch with a 10:15 am seating. The earliest seating time was 10:00 am and it took them a bit of time to seat all the folks who were waiting. However, I think they did that to avoid creating lines at the buffet. Good call! The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was perfect. I hadn't been there before and it was more than I expected. They won over my 60 year old cousin and her partner who are very traditional about cooking Thanksgiving at home. I suspect we'll go back next year, it was that enjoyable!

Everything here was excellent. Some of us got the Steak dinner with roasted garlic and blue cheese. It was excellent. Nice red wine to accompany dinner. The wait staff was excellent, making it a grand experience. Definitely will go back.

No problem with the dinner but being threated with steep fees if we did not show or canceled many hours in advancewas a turn off. I would not recommend for that reason. Not sure if that penalty threat was imposed by the restaurant or the Open table reservation system.

My best friend & I went to the Oregon Garden Resort for a "Girlfriends Getaway" & in our package was dinner at the restaurant! We got to pick any entree that we wanted.. She got the Coulette Steak & I got the Chicken Pasta in the wine sauce.. Oh my word.. The steak was INCREDIBLE. Literally melted in your mouth & had a delicious berry sauce with it.. And the pasta was also to die for.. With sundries tomatoes etc! It was seriously so so good..

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!
