The new "cook" must be from a diner. The demi glaze was soup. Had a steak when the "chef" was cooking and was amazing.

On our drive down to Palm Desert we stopped at the Red Lion Hotel in Salem. Since we were tired we decided to stay at the hotel to dine in their restaurant. We then decide the adjacent pub might be good. Our service was excellent. Our server, James Oliver, was awesome. The clam chowder, Fish tacos, ribs and my Buffalo... More

Lovely seasonal and local menu, with a great wine list that includes a smart selection of Willamette Valley wines, as well as other domestics and a few foreign options. The bistro burger is probably the best burger in Salem. And the bar has the best bartender EVER! James Oliver knows everything, including you, your unspoken needs, your drink preferences, what...

The view isn't much, but the food is really first rate. We've been twice. First time the prime rib was outstanding. Second time they didn't have prime rib so I bought the fillet mignon instead, and wow. The mashed potatoes they served with it were the best I've ever had. We're looking forward to going again.

We went for a family/Friends dinner. The service was slow and rather rude. The food well how can I say this politely...wasn't all it claimed to be. The fish was dry. The prime rib was nothing but fat. Clam chowder which we were told was "Award Winning" was cold, broken and well I've had better out of a can from... More

My girlfriend took me here for a steak tonight. We waited for about 5 minutes to be seated. Things started out ok. We were brought some water. A few minutes later the waiter took our order. By then my water was empty. I watch the water picture to around the room, but never made to our table. After 10 min... More

Amazing food! Exceptional taste and presentation. Every time we've been there! The restaurant never seems to be overly busy - I think it's Salem's best kept secret. Chef Yuri and server Casey are both very attentive to any dietary needs and very knowledgeable and personable. The menu is very innovative and there is always an interesting special. Top notch cuisine... More

The on-site restaurant at Red Lion Hotel, Willamette Valley Grill, is a gem. We were not expecting what we experienced. First, the waiter, Casey was great and helped us chose from the specialties, had good advice. The combination of Casey and the exceptional food made it a delightful experience. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet the chef, we were... More

I highly recommend the Willamette Valley Grill. We recently enjoyed dinner for four. Everyone raved about their dinners. Several had their pork chop and it was excellent. Another had their hamburger which has won awards. Everyone was happy with their choice.
