a no brainerfriendly, knowledgeable, attentive service. very good food. drinks are a very good color...............5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBoston worthy foodthe food was great. if you like boston quality fare them you will really appreciate this restaurant. the only downside is that it is too loud. whoever did the interior decorating made too many hard surfaces which causes the noise to bounce and the place gets REALLY loud. we had to yell to each other to be heard and at one point stopped talking because we were so aggregated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot on the South ShoreWe are always looking for a new spot to try when visiting family on the South Shore. The food at Oro was excellent and the service was friendly. Portions were probably a bit larger than they needed to be, but things were pretty well executed. The wine list was small but well thought out - quality producers and a few unusual varietals/producers.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMwill be returningThe food was very good and the service was excellent. We will definitely be returning to try the bar and some appetizers.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, wonderful service!We held our daughter's baptism luncheon there and all our guests raved about the food and service. We have been there a few times recently for dinner and love their food and the service is second to none. They have a great drink selection at bar too. I like a clear chocolate martini, they have the right liquor and shake it up just right! Delicious food, wonderful service and happening bar, why wouldn't you go??4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGo! Just not when I want a tableFabulous as usual.Just a bit difficult to hear over the "energetic" noise.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Oro. It is a restaurantWe love Oro. It is a restaurant we save for special occassions as it is pricy but the food is always supurb.
Unfortunately the night we went a Mom brought her three young children in and they were seated directly behind me. I don't mind children going out to dinner if they are well behaved but a place like Oro is not where you teach children how to behave in a restaurant. These children were loud and moving from seat to seat...it spoiled our birthday celebration.
This in no way reflects on the restaurant which is why we will go back...I just wish parents would think before they bring young children into a small, quaint restaurant.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience at OroExcellent experience at Oro - all three courses were delicious, fun drink menu and good wine selection, friendly, well-timed service, and loved the decor and overall atmosphere. I definitely plan on going back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at OroThe portions were above average size. We took home half of two courses. The entrees were outstanding, especially the local sole in parchment with mussels The calamari appetizer was a bit on the dry side. The beet salad , corn chowder and sushi appetizers were to die for. In fact, the sushi appetizer could serve as an entree! At first we were hesitant to drink the ice water due to hazy floatings but the server assured us it was lemon infusion! Drinks and wine were a bit pricey over similar fare elsewhere. Margarita could use improvement. Martinis were excellent. Service was very attentive. Will definitely come again!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
