Diner Reviews
  • "I went with friends for dinner. Our table was ready for us when we got there. It took a long time to get the foods and drinks that we ordered. Our waiter was friendly and apologized a few times for the delay with our meals. By the time the food game out, so was hot and some was cold. My burger was delicious though."

  • "Orleans has a solid, basic menu that goes beyond your average pub but isn't quite as good as some of the gastro pubs around these days. Their burgers are good-creative, fresh ingredients and cooked well in my experience. Their cubano used to be good. Last visit it was not, as they changed the basic ingredients from fresh pork shoulder to something else. The beer list is good, there are multiple menu options for other kinds of meals, and plenty of tvs to catch the game."

  • "Interesting menu with fresh ingredients. We enjoyed the beet salad -- the goat cheese was particularly good -- fish tacos were generous and very tasty as was the hummus plate. The Guinness pie (short ribs, carrots, horseradish potatoes, and puff pastry top) was excellent! The bread pudding was also very good. It was apparent that the entire staff was on the ball and our server, Adam, was attentive. Good place to eat before or after catching a game or other activity."

  • "This was our first time at Orleans. The appetizers we ordered were delicious as were the burgers, fish and chips and chicken sandwich. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be going back soon."

  • "My first time at Orleans was great! Glad I had a reservation because it was pretty busy. Had such a nice waitress! The truffle Parmesan fries were delicious and so was the chicken and biscuits. Wasn't impressed by the dessert menu, but I'd definitely go back."

  • "I first found this gem when I used to work on Mass Ave in Cambridge. In the summer I'd go to Davis Square looking for a lunch spot. Orleans offered a quick but extremely tasty lunch option and in the summer they open all the windows in the front (the whole storefront opens) to let in a delightful breeze. My birthday just came up and I decided to meet up with 5 girlfriends, making a reservation via Open Table. We sat in one of the great round booths and it was a wonderful night. Perfect cocktails, friendly and prompt service, and a super delish and always changing menu that has a variety of upscale pub food (lobster mac and cheese, chicken and waffles, etc.) So good!"

  • "Orleans isn't extraordinary, but the food is good and they have a nice variety of beers on tap. Wouldn't recommend for a date night on a Friday or Saturday night cos it gets loud and crowded, but it's a good place to grab a drink and watch the game. The menu has interesting items."

  • "Was impressed at the NYE prix-fixe menu, especially after trying it - the goat cheese tart app, lamb and sea bass entrees, and all desserts were amazing. I always love Orleans' normal food, but this definitely kicked it up a notch."

  • "Orleans is a great spot for a slightly less noisy crowd, great unique food, and good service at a decent price. I especially recommend the blackened fish tacos when they have them. They are absolutely amazing."

  • "We went here as a group of 15+ people before a comedy event in Davis Square. I had to call last minute and up the number of people on the reservation, and they were great about accepting the change and adding an extra table for us. We told the waitress that we had a show to get to and timing-wise it worked out perfectly- she brought us the check very quickly after the food so we didn't have to rush around trying to track her down which is often my experience at other places. Food was good and decently priced, drinks were fine (most just got beers or water), all in all a good experience!"

  • "The hostess was not interested in working this day it seems, I had to go to her between getting menus from tables and let her know that we had a reservation. Every time she came to the hostess stand, she would not make eye contact with the people waiting and just left to make rounds. Doing what, I don't know. The waitress was very pleasant, but she did not come by our table until 10 minutes after we sat down. She apologized and said she would be back with water. The entire service was very slow. I am not sure if they were understaffed for brunch (it was busy), but I will not be going back and would not recommend it for Sunday Brunch."

  • "I live around the corner and default to Orleans frequently. The food is good--lots of options, solidly conceived and well-executed. The servers are friendly, but with groups over 6 they and/or the kitchen seem to get overwhelmed. There are banks of tv screens, which I find distracting and annoying, but it's a good place to watch the game, if that's your thing. Their kid menu is pretty standard, but well-made--could use more veggie options--and they're very nice to kids."
