Excellent Cuisine

Gourmet dinners and great service. The food here is what you might expect at some of the finest restaurants in LA, NYC, San Francisco, etc. A bit on the spendy side but certainly worth it if you want a wonderful dining experience. Also, they have a tremendous wine list as well.

What was Jen's Garden, widely viewed as the finest dinner dining in Sisters, has now become the Cottonwood Cafe, serving only breakfast and lunch. Fortunately, the ownership and management have not changed and neither have the freshness and creativity of their offerings. We happened to be there on the first official day of the re-named restaurant. Despite the new menu,... More

This has been a perennial favorite of ours for wonderful 3 or 5-course fixed price dinners. Over a lovely dinner there this week, we just heard that within the next few weeks, they are ending dinner service and will switch to breakfast and lunch only, except for special-event dinners. Apparently their new offerings are to include a Bloody Mary bar,... More

Thank you for your review and your continued patronage. Yes, it's true that mid April Jen's Garden will reopen as The Cottonwood Cafe. Jen's Garden has enjoyed a very successful 10 year run as a fine dining dinner restaurant and now my business partner and I have the luxury to 'switch it up a bit'. The Cottonwood Cafe will be...

We had a delicious dinner with friends who had never been to Jen's Garden before. Everything was quite wonderful until we were abruptly told we needed to leave because the next seating was there. We had just gotten our credit card back moments before, and were preparing to leave. It really put a damper on our experience. I have never... More

One of the best dining experiences in the West or East for that matter. Perfect service, quality ingredients, thoughtful menu and a cozy room. This is our second time back there and so far flawless. Once for a romantic dinner for two and once taking my daughter and son in law. Jen's knows what makes and great dining experience and... More

Reservations are important as the word has spread how good the food is at this place. The service is good. The fine restaurants in Paris, one we were seated next to California people who were on a boat cruise to one hand. Folks from London visiting family in Paris seating on the other side of us. It was paired with... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I'm not a great descriptor of food sadly but I can say that the flavors are carefully attended to in each dish, are full, distinct and well matched with the other courses and go for the wine pairing -- we have discovered some family favorites thanks to their sommelier. My husband doesn't drink... More

At the end of a short trip around Oregon we ate at Jen's Garden on the last night before heading back home. Extremely glad we did. It was not the fanciest or most expensive meal however, the cozy atmosphere and personal service exceeded my expecations. A very nice wine list and the wine pairings proved to be quite a value....

This is the first time I have dined at Jen's Garden, and I must say that I do not recall having a better restaurant meal. My wife had duck and said that it was the equal of her standard--New Sammy's near Ashland. I had butterfish and found the texture was just right and the sauce superb. Locals must have similar...
