Oswego Grill (Oswego Lake) – Chicken Marsala and Tenderloin Tips
The Oswego Lake area is located just south of Portland and home to Oswego Grill since 2009. This mid-priced restaurant serves up pretty good food in a mid-to-upper scale environment. Despite the dark wood tables and ambiance, you won’t feel out of place coming here in your jeans and t-shirt.
The complimentary sourdough bread had the characteristic slightly chewy crust with a soft interior with a slight tang.
We started our meal with a Tomato Seafood Soup that was very chunky. While I liked it, it could have done with less pepper for my preferences.
The Chicken Marsala ($16.95) had very tender chicken breasts sautéed with local Yamhill mushrooms in a marsala wine sauce. Normally served with buttermilk mashed potatoes, we opted to skip the potatoes on this dish in exchange for more hardwood grilled asparagus.
The Cabernet Tenderloin Tips ($19.95) was a bit salty but I quite enjoyed the beef tenderloin tips sautéed with Yamhill mushrooms and finished with a cabernet balsamic demi glaze. This time around, we kept the buttermilk mashed potatoes (in addition to the hardwood grilled asparagus) and I can`t complain – the mashed potatoes were very good. Portion size here is fairly generous.
Flash Seared Ahi Tuna – seared rare with baby greens and tossed with a wasabi vinaigrette and cilantro ponzu sauce.
All-in-all, the food was pretty good. Service was a bit off at times but I think we had a waitress that was still in training.
