We had never been to Virgil's at Cimmiyotti's before. Our nephew was playing in the band, so we decided to brave the crowds of the Pendleton Roundup, go have dinner, and listen to him play with the band, Countryside Ride. I had the Chile Crusted Halibut, which was very good. We sat outside where the band was playing, and could... More

Classic steak house - it's been around for years. A must try if you're in Pendelton! Crazy busy during round up week, so make a reservation way in advance! I'd request to be in the main floor front part of the restaurant (we got stuck upstairs- not as atmospheric). We had the bacon wrapped dates, a salad, Osso Buco, lasagna... More

I was in Pendleton on business and my site contact said she wanted to take me for dinner and this was the place she picked. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere of the restaurant was welcoming. The service was great. I'd eat here again.

The drinks were fabulous, the food was excellent! Love the old fashioned flocked wallpaper and the cozy ambiance. Prices were a little steep, but definitely worth it. The Ahi Tuna was done perfectly and the steak Oscar was delicious down to the last bite!

This is the most perfect place to have a meal. The staff is excellent, the owner Jennifer will personally talk with you about your experience. Most of all, the food is excellent.

We were walking downtown waiting for our 3 pm Underground Tour when we walked by this gem of a restaurant. We noticed that there was a Happy Hour from 4-6 pm and thought we would come back after our tour. We are sure glad we did! Brittany was the hostess and bartender until the next shift arrived. She was very... More

Excellent food and service! We shared jalapeño bacon wrapped prawns to begin our dining experience. Wow! It just got better from there! My husband enjoyed his 10oz. Filet Mignon steak and I enjoyed my encrusted Ahi tuna. Both seared perfectly! Our only dismay was wondering if we should eat all of the generous portions. We did! The lovely owner and... More

We were in a group of four couples that were trying to get seated for dinner during Pendleton Bike week. There was an hour and half wait to get in Hamely's so the group opted for Virgil's. We were late joining the group as they were already seated when we arrived. The drinks were generously poured and our waitress was... More

Dinner with co-workers, I had the steak Diane. It was unusually well-cooked (lots of folks over-cook beef, a tragedy), with a delicious sauce with a hint of mustard. Great salad, lots of veggies, a hint of salty, crunchiness. And the sweet potato fries. These were not frozen. The atmosphere is a little dark and could use an update, but the... More

We were on a road trip through Pendleton, Oregon and wanted a good restaurant within walking distance of our hotel (our hotel wasn't very good, but that is another story). We had crab cakes as a starter, very nice. Reasonably priced wine. We shared an entree of an enormous pork shank, which was delicious and very large. The decor is... More
