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.

The service was professional however our server lacked knowledge of certain key elements of the menu, specifically the wine list. The presentation was lovely however main courses lacked flair. I had the haddock which was tasty however the sauce came across a bit heavy and commercial. My dining mates who had the salmon were unhappy with portion to cost ratio... More

I am new to the Salem area and a friend told me that one of the restaurants I should try was the Willamette Valley Grill.

Love the customer service at this hotel and the awesome bar staff, but the menu since a recent turnover leaves me wanting. I'm glad that ordering an English muffin at breakfast gets me both halves, but I miss the better-than-average and sometimes exceptional flavor of the meats and other dishes. So far, I recommend the tomato-basil soup and the wings.... More

Bistro salad and chicken/basil soup was superb. I'm normally a meat and potatoes guy. My adult son had the lamb and said it was very good.

We rolled in with a group of 12 - all professionals in the craft beer industry & an eclectic group. The beer on tap was a nice selection of state craft brews - the wine list also local - the food was also really good.

We tried this place because of the Tripadvisor rcommendations, and also because it was close to our hotel. We started in the lounge and never left. Thats the place to eat.
