    Took my husband out for his birthday dinner. Table location was great. Server was great. Drinks were great. He loved his veal chop with noodles and mushroom gravy. My filet sea bass was good with spinach and potatoes. Desserts were normal nothing exciting to me so we didn’t order any. Overall We were very happy and would return again.

    We went.for two friends birthday dinner. The food was great. The waiter was suppose to bring out the desserts with a candle and did not That was disappointing. He was very nice but absent at times. No candle or centerpiece on the tables and none of the tables were set upon arrival. We had a good time and will return but hope some things are tweaked.

    Booked L’Orcio early on the day we wanted to go and the only time available was 7:45, a bit later than we wanted. When we got there (7:30) we were seated immediately by the hostess. Big plus! Our server was attentive but not intrusive and provided great service throughout the meal. We shared an appetizer of eggplant and ricotta/chives. It was delicious! For dinner we had the chicken scallopini and the ricotta ravioli - both were served quickly and hot! They were outstanding! We’ve been to L’Orcio a number of times and have never been disappointed! Bravo!

    Very disappointing meal. Had the branzino which was very bland as were the undercooked roasted potatoes. Included a very small portion of unseasoned spinach. Presentation of food was poor. Tiramisu was mostly cream with powered cocoa on top. Service was just ok.

    The food—Pollo Limone, blanched spinach and a few roasted new potatoes was simple but with clear flavor delineations that created a wonderful aggregate. I have eaten here numerous times and appreciate the that the restaurant is never overcrowded, but instead has an inviting local atmosphere.

    Very nice meal for two. Quiet romantic dinner, which was so different from the norm. I think every table, and some with 6-8 people all spoke in quiet tones and respect for others. Tasteful low key music. Excellent meal and service was spot on

    We went for a family birthday celebration. I walked in and all of the tables only had white table cloth - no candle, flower, plant or other decor. Tables were also not set. I felt like the ambience right at the start was non-existent. Hubby sat by the window and complained of the coldness due to the insufficient window insulation. We order appetizers: the Burrata wasn’t real Burrata. It was mozzarella buffalo. We had to send back the stuffed sardines - they were nasty-smelling and tasted like the bottom of a swamp. I asked the waitress where the sardines came from and she didn’t know nor did she find out for us. Don’t order the sardines. I ordered the cheese & cold cut plate with melon. There was no melon on the plate. Also, their website menu was totally different than the menu we got. Main courses: the strip steak was served with a salad instead of a hot vegetable. My husband didn’t like that. My seafood di mare was in a red sauce that did not resemble an Italian sauce. It was a fishy broth with no flavor. We thought the shrimp and clams were overly fishy. I have to say, I was thoroughly disappointed eating here and will NOT return.

    Excellent food, beautiful old brownstone. A little noisy as the restaurant was full. Our meals were excellent fresh homemade pastas and our meals were presented well. Our cheese plate food quality was excellent but presentation was pretty blah. Would absolutely recommend.

    Food was delicious. We definitely will be returning to this restaurant on our Smooth Jazz excursions at the Lymans Center. Their olive oil for bread dipping did not need anything make it taste better. It must have been very high quality. I should have asked the name of it.

    Food for excellent, some of the best I've had in a long, long while. The food took a little long to get out, but once it was there, it was very much worth the wait. I made a small, but unusual, request for the table before my girlfriend and I arrived, and believe me, it made her night. 6/5 for the service, I will certainly be returning.

    Was a great experience. Sat at our table and ordered drinks. Was given time to enjoy our drinks before asking for a food order. The Erbivoro antipasto was delicious. Chicken saltimboca had great taste and was light, Gorgonzola filet also great. Paloma Italiano drink was delicious. Ended with a light lemon ricotta cheese cake which again was amazing.

    We chose L’Orcio celebrate our anniversary because it never disappoints. This was no exception. Wine, appetizers and dinner specials were all excellent. Our server was friendly and attentive.
