Wine, although available in the usual bottle, is also available in four size "pours" - 2, 4, 6 and 8 oz., from a high end system that allows selections of higher end wines normally not on a "by the glass" selection. Our server, Phillip, was very helpful, very knowledgable and very attentive. In addition, the food was simply great. A fun experience and a restaurant I will definitely revisit regularly.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBooked a table while waitingBooked a table while waiting for the NC Symphony to start up.

The food and drinks were absolutely amazing. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent. They even brought out a candle with dessert. The atmosphere was very upscale and romantic. Oro was the perfect spot to celebrate!2/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
