“Love Silverton; love this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Our hotel recommended we visit Howard Hinsdale Wine Cellar and we did. It is right in the middle of tiny Silverton on the River. We ate outdoors on the deck over the river (be sure to ask for a table there, weather permitting. It is delightful). There were four of us and we all ordered different dishes and all were quite good (my very fresh salmon was delicious). The entrees are not oversized and the prices are very modest. The waitress suggested a wine that accompanied everyone's meals. We adjoined inside to listen to two guitar players (the good old fashion ones without electronics!). It was a very pleasant weekday evening and we will go back when we visit the area.

“Oh Yes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

At the corner of the main street and the bridge crossing Silver Creek. Thought this was a winery (the name seems to imply), but it is a great place for a meal. We sat outside and enjoyed the inventive menu and wonderful local wine selections.

This would be our first choice on a return visit to Silverton.

“Going to have to work on your hospitality!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We had a deal from local hotel for BOGO. It was fairly busy but the staff who we think was owner was pretty rude. Tried to order chicken option and had nuts in it and with severe allergy was told not very nicely that can't take nuts out. Of course when salad arrived it had nuts and when advised felt like we were putting him out. At least the beer was cheap and we won't be going back.

“What a Unique Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We were staying at the Oregon Garden Resort a few minutes away and received winery and brewery invitations. One of them was for this delightful restaurant with a two for one entrée coupon. The restaurant is five minutes from the resort in the historic and charming community of Silverton. We parked nearby and were escorted onto the patio overlooking a small creek which runs beside the bistro. There are about 15 to 20 seats outside on the deck, slightly more inside, as well as a private dining area for a small group.
Our host Kevin Cobb and we hit it off right away as he regaled us with vignettes about the bistro and the location and the food! We had a wonderful dinner, and enjoyed a special dessert and two local beers.
We can't rate this any higher than to say this is a MUST place to enjoy a meal as a couple or a family. Just don't ask to see the winery or the brewery as there isn't one or the other. Just a great little restaurant and a very hospitable host.

“Great evening, excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We were guests at the Oregon Garden Resort, and they provided enticements to try some of the local eateries. This restaurant looked interesting - and it was!

We had an unusual host and server - I believe his name was Kevin - he really had an animated personality, to say the least and he helped make the evening - and was very good about making recommendations from the menu. His suggestions were spot on and all of us enjoyed the meal, the wine and the surroundings.

Dessert...when asked for the best...Kevin said the bread pudding - Habenero, bread and whiskey...very unusual, very interesting, and completely enjoyable....

Would we return to this facility? Absolutely...there were several items on the menu I'd love to try.
