Food was excellent but they need
to upscale the decor to match. While the decor is OK, the restaurant could be so much more if the decor matched the level of the food."

Oro is amazing, the food, service
and atmosphere ! I can't wait to go back!"
Dined on 3/8/2014
First time at Oro and will
definitely go back soon. The food was spectacular, from the appetizers right through desert. The service was very good and our waitress was knowledgeable about the food and the wines and could not be more helpful. A very cozy little setting, but a also a little on the noisy side as it is very small."

Everything from the cocktails to
the warm chocolate cake was delicious. We also received excellent service. Looking forward to a return visit!"

This was our first time at Oro.
The Food, with the exception of the dessert, was excellent. The service was good but not out standing. We will return."

The resteraunt is small and a
little loud when it gets busy, but the menu is fantastic. You will not be disappointed."

Our experience was fantastic! We
had the deconstructed beet salad and corn chowder for starters. they were both so flavorful they could've served as the main course. I had the duck and my wife had the gnocchi which were both dynamic surprises of wonderful flavor and richness of texture they delighted us to no end. this is the true foodie's choice!"

Food was delicious as it always
is. Ordered a 2008 bottle of wine for $45, and got the 2009 instead, that turned out to be $92, and the waitress failed to note the price to us. Very disappointed at this, and no mention of it."

The chef at Oro is obviously
creative as well as exceptionally talented. The food was SUPERB. However, the ambience needs a lot of work. It apparently was previously a 'breakfast place' (no insult to breakfast places intended), but when you go out for an expensive dinner you expect more. The noise level was unbearable - could not even talk with the person directly across from you."

We went her when they first opened
and did not have a good experience and was a little reluctant to go back. Decided to give It another try and glad we did. The food was fabulous and we will definitely go back"

If dining southeast of Boston and
looking for a different option than the typical Hingham Harbor or shipyard routine or perhaps Plymouth, then Oro in Scituate is a good option. The menu is fairly small but has a good cross-section of beef, poultry and seafood selections. The ingredients were fresh and meal was prepared to order. Portions were not huge but not small either. The only knock I had on the place was that after being seated by a friendly hostess it took more than several minutes before a server came to check on us, and it was not actually our server. The place was busy, and it is not a huge place by any means. Maybe they were short-staffed that night. I definitely recommend it and would go again."

Funny. Oro used to be a great
neighborhood gem. It's still got great food but gotten a little pretentious. This is scituate Harbor.... Still good to connect with a friend.. Bar gets crazy busy and loud..."

I went for brunch with a friend on
Sunday. The cocktails and food were excellent, as was the service by server Casey. I can't wait to go back for dinner."
Dined on 1/12/2014
Our favorite place to dine in
Scituate. The Misto Del Mar appetizer is fantastic and should not be missed. As it is a small space the noise level can be loud as there is a small but lively bar. Service is always friendly, professional and prompt. If you like fine dining it should not be missed."

The food, wine and service were
very good. The noise level was just too high to easily converse."

Just tried Oro for the first time!
Came with a co-worker for our annual Christmas dinner together. Gladly Surprised by the simple and casual appearance which did not take away from the class of the restaurant. The wait staff was wonderful, informative of the food and very attentive but not overbearing. The food...Hmm Hmm Good! Melt in your mouth with every bite. The blend of the mixture of items on each plate was wonderfully done! Was told it was made fresh per order & it showed. We stuffed ourselves because we just could not stop! From the appetizers to the desert we have absolutely no complaints on the food! Sadly it was a little out of my budget to go there often, however I will be back! Special occasions or just for drinks with friends!"

The service was excellent -
friendly, attentive, unobtrusive. The food was excellent and the atmosphere noise level actually allowed my friends and me to speak normal volumes with each other. Great experience! We will be back."

Food was good. Tables close
together and it was very noisy."
Dined on 12/7/2013
I have been here x 2 for dinner.
It's too loud! Between the bar and windows, sound echoed. It was difficult to carry on a conversation.The staff and seafood and cocktails were FABULOUS. My husband was not impressed with the steak dish. He didn't think the meat was high quality. I will probably return with girlfriends but not my husband."
Dined on 12/6/2013
nice looking and atmosphere.
somewhat limited menu. but what was offered was well prepared."
Dined on 11/24/2013
Our experience at Oro was a solid
'Good' . The service was ok but the server was not very informative when we asked about certain items on the menu. She acted to busy to stop and explain. The calamari was very good but the Osso Bucca Pork was Dry and not enough sauce. Overall it was just good and no wow factor."
Dined on 11/17/2013
Superb culinary experience. Very
loud, and noise could be absorbed with floor, wall & ceiling treatment."
Dined on 11/9/2013
When a customer orders flowers for
their table to celebrate a special occasion, that usually means its a special occasion. Therefore, don't sit them at the end of the bar where they can't talk because its so loud and their space is violated by the people at the end of the bar and flow of patrons that are squeezed into and keep bumping into their table. Its best to sit the celebrating table away from the bar and into the back of the restaurant, not to mention the view of the gas station is best avoided. Oro does not get special occasions. Go for a drink at the bar and do try to remember people are eating around you."

Every we ordered: to start,
oysters, corn chowder with Berkshire bacon, Caesar salad, and Misto del Mar (raw tuna & salmon with avocado & ginger soy vinaigrette); entrees: Cider Glazed Chicken Breast, Crispy Scituate Lobster Cake, Braised Beef Short Rib; and desserts: Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake and Buttermilk Panna Cotta, was DELICIOUS. Lovely food presentation, generous portions. Our server was very helpful, even going back to ask the chef when she did not know answers. But the noise (and AC), were almost unbearable. We were seated next t the bar, which was active & very noisy, and got rowdier as the evening went on. Would go back again in a heartbeat, but maybe on a weeknight, maybe it's quieter. Noise permeated the whole restaurant.."

Delicious food and excellent
service. Loud and hard to hold conversation. Everything else was amazing."
Dined on 10/26/2013
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."
Dined on 10/6/2013
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."

food and service were very good -
would recommend !"
Dined on 9/30/2013
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!"

We took our Italian friends (from
Italy) and were concerned about taking them to an Italian resturant. They LOVED the food, said it was excellent. They loved the Chippino? (fish stew mussels, calamari) said it was the best they have had."

This was my fifth time at Oro, and
once again it was terrific. We had four people in our party and ordered six different dishes among us. Everything was delicious. Our server, Valerie, was outstanding in service, especially when answering questions and helping us make choices."

My wife and I celebrated our one
year anniversary at Oro and had a wonderful and romantic dining experience. Beyond the delicious food, of which dessert was my favorite, the service was excellent. The wait staff was kind, friendly, welcoming, and made our experience all the better."

Great food. Great Service. LOUD -
really LOUD. The need to baffle the ceilings."

The only thing I was sad about
when leaving the restaurant is that we hadn't gone sooner! Everything was amazing food and service!! The calamari and gnocchi were out of this world!!!!"
Dined on 8/24/2013
Food with a flair with great
service. Wonderful evening. Only problem was with our reservation with Open Table. Open Table reserved a table for 2 when the request was for a table for 4. Oro was very gracious in accommodating our needs. Much appreciated."
Dined on 8/25/2013
Incredible food as always -
seasonal heirloom tomato salad, calamari, and beet salad to start. All highly recommended. Steak, chioppino, pork chop and salmon for the mains - all incredibly fresh and packed with flavor. Cannot wait to go again!"
Dined on 8/24/2013
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."
Dined on 8/18/2013
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."
Dined on 8/18/2013
Great food, service and wine.
Sadly we were shouting to hear each other in our group of four. Will go back for the food but not on a weekend when it is so crowded."
