We went here while staying at the Oregon Garden Resort. The food is good but the service was mediocre. The waiter who greeted us was cranky and not sure he could get us a table and the restaurant wasn't even a quarter full. The next one seated us right away and then no one came for a while. We finally were assigned a waiter and he was polite but that was it. I don't like loud restaurants but this place was so silent that you were afraid to talk. No one was talking, no music, not even the clank of dishes, it was kind of weird. My husband and I were whispering! So....the food was fine, the bread was really, really good and the view was very beautiful and relaxing. We would go again if we were staying at the resort. We would not go out of our way to go there to eat otherwise. The lounge was very comfortable and the staff there was very friendly. We went in after dinner for a glass of wine.

Dinner: The service was exceptional. The rolls tasted like my mom's homemade rolls. The Caesar salad was awesome!! Wish I had the recipe... The steak was delicious, the baked potato perfect and the vegetables were just right! The dessert was this chocolate heaven with strawberries and blueberries on top! The view is excellent!!! It's not noisy, so you can actually talk to your dinner partner. Our waitress was the best we have every had!
Breakfast: The continental breakfast was okay. It was filling and had some variety. Eggs were pretty tasteless and the sausage was huge and pretty poor quality. Server wasn't quite as "happy." (Dark hair, ring in nose, and looked like she wasn't quite awake--not very polite to the other blonde server who was very pleasant. So breakfast rates an "okay," whereas dinner rates "exceptional!"

Dinner with wine was included as part of the package we booked for Oregon Garden Resort.

The food is nothing special but some of it is very good. The Mexican Lime pie on the dessert menu is very good.

They get very busy so service does suffer but they genuinely try very hard so I give them Kudos for making the best of a difficult situation.

Been to this restaurant a few times in the past. The service has always been excellent, and the food has ranged from very good to excellent. The view of the Willamette Valley and the Oregon Gardens from the restaurant is superb. On our most recent stay, we had a very nice dinner, one entrée was salmon and the other was a chicken pasta dish. Both were very good. The service at the restaurant has always been exceptional. We had a complimentary breakfast "buffet" for each night of our stay. The fresh baked scones and other baked goods are delightful. The only "knock" on our most recent stay were the coffee cup stains. Perhaps the dishwashing machine wasn't working properly but it might be a good idea if management makes it a policy to check the cleanliness of the dishes before placing them out for customers to use. That being said, we will definitely return in the future.

The view, the service, the quality and the quantity were all exceptional. The goat cheese with roasted garlic appetizer was delish!
