    My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Oro. Our server was very helpful with the menu, and we enjoyed our meal. The only disappointment was the lack of gluten-free and dairy-free dessert options. We were certainly well-fed between our appetizers an entrees, but were surprised to find they don't always have a sorbet or fruit option. So if you're gluten-free, just plan on dessert elsewhere.

    Probably one of the best meals ever. Nothing too fancy, just great ingredients prepared in a creative way. Also it was half the price of some fancy NYC restaurants we tried last month - and twice as good! Highly recommend.

    Went to Oro for the first time with a couple of friends in from the west coast. We had oysters, burrata salad, and beet salad to start. Everything was fresh and beautifully presented. Had swordfish, duck breast, steak, and a chicken special for entrees. All dishes were again beautifully presented, cooked per order, and delicious. Menu was fairly creative and progressive overall - more like something you'd find in a major city rather than in Scituate where the majority of the area restaurants serve pretty standard fare. Ambiance is cool and energetic. Service was satisfactory. Prices were on the expensive side but the food lived up to it. We will come again.

    We brought out of state friends for dinner on Saturday night. Everything was outstanding, but the very high noise level made it difficult to fully enjoy the experience. I'm sorry that they no longer have the small private room that would allow for a more relaxing meal. That said, the food and service were excellent. So happy that Scituate has such a fine restaurant in the harbor. I would definitely recommend it!

    Oro satisfies the need in town for a solid and contemporary dining experience. On the plus side, the food was super fresh and very well presented. The flavors were great and the care in the food was totally there. I also think the prices were right where they needed to be. All of that made it a great experience. On the downside, the service was just enough to be adequate. The server seemed educated on the menu and polite but just hit our table enough to get the job done. No added value to the experience. Lastly, the space is very office feeling. However, it sort of works with the contemporary food and beverage they are serving. They seem to attract the right kind of traffic in there and I am happy this place is in my town.

    The food was well prepared, tasty and nicely presented. Unfortunately, I won't return until mid- winter on a weekday when it may not be as crowded so that my husband and I can hear our conversation. We spoke with the waitress about the acoustics and she knew about the problem. Our waitress understood my food allergy and checked in with us after talking with the chef.

    We had reservations for 7:30 and showed up 45 minutes early. They said that they couldn't take us until our appointed time so we had drinks in the bar area. We were shown to our table at 7:30 but we didn't see our server until 7:45. Finally at 8:00 we had new drinks and a basket of bread. We placed our order at 8:15 and received our food at 8:45. The food was good, but I could have made the recipe at home and it would have been just as good (I am a good cook). This was on a Wednesday night, and there were about 4 empty tables so it didn't appear that they were that busy. I just think they were short staffed.

    This restaurant had great upmarket food. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu, and the service was good. We went on a Saturday night, so the place was full. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the noise level was way up there. We are not old and we had trouble hearing each other talk. Some curtains or other soft furnishings would not go amiss. It is a small place with low ceilings and the noise just bounces around off of all the hard surfaces. We will go back because everything else is good, but probably on a week night when it might be less noisy.

    Good menu which didn't offer and over abundance of endless choices. The food was prepared very well ans looked as good as it tasted. I was pleased with the wine list as well as surprised as it contained wines I often and only see in far more expensive restaurants. I thought it loud which is fine for a bar/restaurant but Oro appeared and is presented more of a restaurant hen bar although it has both. The wait staff seemed compotent and did a good job.

    We have usually had wonderful experiences at Oro but we apparently made the mistake of dining on the same night as a Bruins' Stanley Cup game (June 22). Our waitress was relatively unfriendly from the get-go and unhappy when we asked her to check on our food (which seemed quite late). Unfortunately when the food got to us, my steak was cold. I suspect she was watching the Bruins' game and not focusing on the task at hand. Whatever the case, it was an unpleasant experience all around.

The food was fantastic, I had the charcuterie platter, and when I showed my enthusiasm on ordering, received and additional on item on the board! My main course was the duck, seared breast and confit leg, delicious! My wife had a generous beet salad as her first course, then two succulent lobster cakes as her main course. We split a chocolate cake with coffee ice cream to finish off a fantastic dinner, which we followed with a walk along Scituate harbor, and out at the Lighthouse.

    This was our second date night at ORO. The cocktail list is inventive. I had about a bourbon cooler and loved it. I will try the King Martini on my next visit. The corn clam chowder is a Must try. We had the oysters and Tuna Misto they both tasted fresh, fresh, fresh. The only low point was our house made chips were a little greasy. Entrees were delicious also. Dessert were both comforting and exciting.
