Braised Beef Short Ribs nicely presented surrounded by house gnocchi and topped with the thinnest crispy potatoes which gave the dish just the right amount of crunch. Others enjoyed over-sized portions of Half Roasted Natural Chicken and the Panko Crusted Chicken a/k/a Chicken Parmiagiana. We had the best server with a great personality, I just wish I knew her name to give her the credit due her!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe pace of our meal was ExcellentWe had a great private table for 4 and the pace of the meal was excellent all the dinners were outstanding. We had Salmon,Veal,Hanger Steak and Braise Short Ribs they were all served piping hot after everyone had time to finish their salad.
Most places don't get the pace correct (especially on a SAT Night)they serve the salad and the entree shows up 2 minutes later or they let the entree sit and it's barely warm when served.
We even hung out at the bar after dinner to listen to the live acoustic music.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful open kitchen withWonderful open kitchen with brick oven...

This is truly a success story of two people who met in the business, share a love for what they do and were driven to achieve their dream of owning their own restaurant. His food is fabulous, she is the hostess with the mostess. They have always been the restauranteurs that take the time to get to know their patrons and that is how we've become friends and followers of theirs. You feel like a friend joining them for dinner at their family table.

Looking forward to going back!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the Pecan Pie!!!!Enjoyed our time at Orta. New owners (since last June) have done a nice job! The food was great and the service was great. Owner came to the table a few times to check in with us. We were out for an early dinner and really had a wonderful time. Meal was great, wine list is good, but we were ultimately blown away by our desert. If you go and like pecan pie, it is a must try.....if I wasn't in public, I would have licked the plate. Overall a great meal and good night out!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningHostess was very pleasant along with the wait staff being attentive. Food was fabulous, I had the almond encrusted salmon and my husband the panko chicken.
