Went there for a birthday party and it was one of the worst meals ever. The service started fine with drinks, but once we sat down for dinner, the fixed price menu didn't have a price, we got side dishes that we didn't order, and the food missed the spot, overcooked and without flavor. After that, it took over an... More

This gem a short drive from the "bustling mall scene" is a superb diversion from the fast food crowd. With an extensive wine list, full bar, and fabulous menu (local crab cakes [awesome]), cut with a fork filet's, sumptuous lobster bisque and impeccable service this restaurant is worth a look. It's not a $20 per head locale. Our party of... More

We arrived on friday evening at 5:30 to take advantage of the happy hour $5 specials. We elected to sit outside since it was a nice night and bar was a bit crowded. We were soon informed that those specials were "bar only". We tried to appeal to our server that the bar was crowded and would he reconsider and... More

We're happy that there still are some places left for a great fine dining experience. Entire menu is excellent. Some of the waiters are almost too attentive and familiar, but that is forgiven. Great place. Not the cheapest place in the world, but you get what you pay for. Piano player is a nice touch.

We have had nice meals at Oregon Grille in the past, so it seemed like a good idea for a small birthday dinner. Although the restaurant was quiet that evening, they crammed six of us into an uncomfortable and awkward booth. Our server was lackluster and inattentive. The food was mediocre (overcooked) and the wine list lacks imagination. I don't... More

Oregon Grille is an institution in Baltimore County. I live in Hunt Valley and have eaten there many times. It is formal and for dinner they prefer jackets. The food is usually ok but not spectacular. The greatest sin for a Baltimore area restaurant is to serve bad crab cakes. I recently ate at the other less fancy place owned... More

I came here with my husband for his birthday dinner. Service was attentive, the food was great (but pricey). Nice ambiance, with a piano being played during dinner. That was a great addition since live music always adds to the experience. We were very pleased with our time there.

Excellent food and service at exorbitant prices. Decent wine list but, you guessed it, you will pay top dollar. Hard to spend less than $500-600 for dinner for 4 with wine. If money is no object, by all means the ambiance is memorable. Bar is cozy and friendly as well for before or after dinner cocktail.

We visited this lovely restaurant to celebrate our 29th anniversary. My husband ordered the French onion soup, which he said was not worth the price as the bread in the soup was so hard he couldn't eat it. The crock was fairly small to average but he said it did have a good flavor and was loaded with onions. The... More

Excellent service. Excellent food. Elegant surroundings. Great wine list. Romantic ambiance. Expensive. The steaks are particularly good but but nothing on the menu is below par and dinner is usually accompanied by a pianist.
