Oregon Grille - new
I just have to post this separately because there have been so many posts about the Oregon Grille, all negative, that I knew mine would be buried.
A small group of us went to the Oregon Grille to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in the door until the moment we left, we were treated wonderfully. The staff in the doorway, our wait staff, everyone was polite, friendly and extremely efficient.
The food we ate was delicious. We shared some appetizers, rather than plunk the plates on the table for us to pass around, the waiter served us each individually. Grilled oysters, fried calamari, lobster egg roll, all perfectly prepared and delicious. Our entrees were equally wonderful.
Really the Oregon Grill went above and beyond to make sure this special occasion was properly celebrated. Yes the food is expensive, but you pay for expert service and well-made food. Not a one of us felt we were treated badly.
ivysmom--it was good to hear that you had a very favorable experience at the Oregon Grille. It is, and has been, one of my favorite restaurants--food-wise, ambiance, etc. It saddens me to hear less then favorable Chowhound comments for one of the best Baltimore region dining establishments. Price-point//gentlemen having to wear jackets for dinner--oh my--what an inconvenience. The quality of the food and service are deserving of dollars and clothing.
The wait-staff service is impeccable--especially Tom Flynn. He is the most pleasant and accommodating server. Bar-none.
I will continue to offer compliments to one of Baltimore's Best. FoiGras
