Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always great with innovative specials. I have hosted a number of celebrations at Orupa's and everyone always loves it."

  • "My wife and I had an interesting experience at Orupa. We came to dinner on a Monday evening, and were seated promptly by a friendly server, who made us feel welcome. We ordered two glasses of wine both of which were quite acceptable. We ordered a small plate to share as an appetizer. The olives, blue cheese and chickpea appetizer was absolutely delicious. My wife ordered the chicken and spinach salad; her dish was outstanding. My own gold-and-purple beet salad was tasty. The low(ish) point food-wise was dessert, which we almost did not order. Our crème brulee was cold inside and clearly had been waiting in the fridge, only to be blow-torched on top. Disappointing. Despite the low points to service and food, we will likely return."

  • "The overall experience was great! We all had fun and the food was great. The manager who had hung up on one of tthe people in our party has made so the 12 of us will not be returnign to the resturant."

  • "Husband and I both ordered filets. Port wine reduction was good but meat was gristly. Nice vegetables and presentation. Dessert was tasty. Husband and I both commented that we didn't think we needed to go back again. Price for 2 with only one glass of wine was $120"

  • "Orupa was nice. Not as nice as DiVinci's for the same price tag, though it got paid as the evening wore on and there wasn't a lot if privacy. Delicious food. Good portions, though the pot de creme was actually pretty large for such a rich dessert. It would make it a regular but we had a very enjoyable Valentine's Day."

  • "We had reservations on valentines day and couldn't find a sitter for our 9 month old. They were very accommodating and the chef (owner?) made him some fries as a treat at no cost. The food was excellent and the blood orange cocktail was delicious. I would definitely recomend this place, and we will be back. Tables were small but the waitress said they rented them just for valentines day and normally they are larger."

  • "Although I wouldn't recommend Orupa for a "special occasion" dinner such as Valentines Day, I certainly recommend it on any other day. The food is amazing and the staff does an incredible job. The only downside I can mention is; if you are trying to have a romantic dinner, some of the tables are way too close to each other, so intimate conversations are impossible as complete strangers are almost at your table. The reason I wouldn't recommend it for "special occasions", such as Valentines Day is; the menu prices are inflated up to 50%, from any regular day. They should at least advertise a "special menu" for the night on their website. Don't get me wrong, I love this place and we will be back, just not on Valentines Day, ever again."

  • "Some of the entrees where very good, others not so good. Pepper Steak excellent, Scallops over cooked, vinaigrette tasteless. The bread loaves were over cooked, The interior design was nice, with comfortable setting and beautiful table linens and dishes. The waitresses were nice, but not too friendly when the bar manager was within ear shot. His tone and words were harsh and when he did try to be nice, it came out as being condescending. The was true when he spoke to staff and with customers. The staff observed did not smile nor interact with each other. It did not appear to be a nice place to work."

  • "Made 6:45 reservations which we were late for as the fog between Portland and Salem was quite thick. The restaraunt was easy to find although it is on Liberty Ave which is one way. We were seated promptly. We ordered three appetizers (always like to try new apps) and our meals. My daughter had the 12 oz ribeye special. I had the fettucine carbonara and my wife had the gnocchi. The appetizers were all very tasty and just enough to share. My daughters ribeye was well cooked but the cut was a little thin. I prefer my ribeye to be RIBEYE! The carbonara was served with pepporoni slivers. I always order this in any place that has it. I found their interpretation edible but lacking the classic peasant appeal of the original. All in all not bad."

  • "The food was very good. The noise was very much a distraction. My mistake to go at 6:00PM on a Friday. it was inundated with happy hour clients; noise level was quite high. Seating 10 feet from the kitchen was the quietest table in the place at the time and incongruent with enjoying such good food. The waitress was overly theatrical with oohing and ahhing over the different menu items. She came across as practicing for the latest melodrama presentation at the Pentacle. The service was adequate, though not superb. This is a spendy Yuppie bar scene not suitable for any kind of intimate dining."

  • "My husband and I went there to celebrate his birthday. Everything from the food to the service was really great! Our waitress was very attentive without being bothersome and the food more than met our expectations. We have been here before and have not been disappointed. Kudos!"

  • "Another brilliant dinner. The food is always good and its presentation brilliant."

  • "The service and food was wonderful. This is a small restaurant with a classy feel. The restaurant seating is a bit of a challenge since the kitchen is open to the seating area on one side subjecting the booths across from the open kitchen to waiter traffic and noise. Avoid that by asking for a seat near the bar which is small and very nice."
