    Very pleasant, vibrant locale...nice to have windows open in front. Went for brunch. Omelette options very tasty and varied. Service pleasant and considerate...there was a large party while we were there, so the service was a bit slow and staff a bit pre-occupied, but all in all, quite nice. They also did excellent service recovery--removed charge for an item that needed to be re-heated--which was appreciated.

  • We had a great dinner before
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    We had a great dinner before heading to the theater and our waitress was lovely and attentive. Our only service issue was with the hostess service. We arrived with 5 of our 6 guests included in the reservation and were immediately seated inside. When our 6th arrived and gave them the same name she was taken outside where she waited for us to arrive even though we were already there. Unfortunately no one put us together and we missed dining together. A better system for seating large reservations or better staff communication could easily remedy this sort of issue.

  • No onions please!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/7/2013
    This was on the Phantom Gourmet gift card list. We decided to use it here. I loved the place but it was a zig zag ride using the GPS. Not their fault.First table we sat in was right next to the hostess table which was buzzing with gossip so we moved ourselves 4 tables down. We ordered the duck tacos and said "no onions please" and it came out swarming with onions. The waitress was very apoligetic and brought out a duplicate with no onions. I had the Frenchman burger (Brie, spinach, carmelized onions)with a side of chicken noodle soup and he had the steak tips with mashed and string beans. The mashed were cold. The soup was like Grandma's...very hearty. The have an excellent selection of beers and drinks. We'd go again. No onions please. :)

    We made a reservation on Easter Sunday. When we got there the place was basically empty. Our waitress showed us to our table and left us with menus. She came back 5 min later and took drink orders. We could see the bar from our table. There were 3 people sitting at the bar. The bar tender was not busy and stood most of the time against the wall. After 20 minutes and no sign of our waitress or our drinks, we left. So sad for a Davis Square dining choice.

  • Amazing, Affordalble, and Friendly
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 3/20/2013
    Excellent food at more than reasonable prices. The ambiance and noise levels are better than other options in Davis Sq. Our server was Emma, who was great. She has just the right combination of friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable without being overbearing. I had the Blackened Chicken w/mushrooms and tortellini in a light Alfredo sauce. It was the perfect combo of spice and slightly sweet from the sauce. I've also had the amazing Salmon with prosciutto and peas risotto. I've lived in Davis Sq for 7 yrs, and I still consider Orleans to be a hidden gem. The dining room-while steady-rarely is packed-which is a huge plus for me. It's my go to place in the Square.
