Have been to this restaurant every year since I can remember. As far back as Second Story. Always a very good and interesting meal. And prices, while expensive, are in line with other top restaurants on the island. However, it's insulting to be charged $4 for a few pieces of bread/roll. Really? Think I'm done there.
The food is prepared as well as anywhere, with wonderful layering of tastes and textures in each dish. Unfortunately our visit was made very unpleasant by a group of 8 loud, obnoxious, boorish, middle age supposed adults from off island that spent the evening being loudly "funny" in their mean comments to each other. The size of the room and their volume made it impossible to ignore. We should have asked to be moved, and next time we will.
The best food on Nantucket, period. The food arrives hot and the perfect degree of done. The main ingredient of each dish is accompanied by several others which are all wonderful in their own right, but more importantly add layers of flavor and complexity to create a whole which is much more than the sum of its parts. We enjoyed our meal first bite to last!
Oran Mor has been consistently outstanding over the years. It is so nice to go back to a restaurant and have it live up to your fond memories. Still the best on the Island, by far!
We have been coming to Nantucket for 30 years and, I'm embarrassed to say, somehow missed this gem! It was wonderful and we highly recommend it! It's now one of our favorites!
We were seated at a table with a view of the harbor. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The meal was delicious from start to finish. Everything on the plate was bursting with flavor. Highest recommendations for the grilled beef and the roasted duck. It's easy to see why this is one of the top rated restaurants on Nantucket.
Our dinner was absolutely delicious. We started with the calamari app, I had the fluke, and my husband had the special -- it was a seafood pasta. My biggest con was our waiter. She came off like she didn't care and just wanted us to hurry up and get out.
We hadn't been to Oran Mor in several years and forgotten how much we like it. I love the antique feeling of the dining rooms and how one room leads into another, allowing for a feeling of warmth and intimacy. Our server Pam was attentive and friendly. The food was wonderful and expertly prepared from start to finish. The menu is good combination of traditional while still being innovative. We will not wait so long to come again!
Amazing food! Stellar! This restaurant was recommended to us by knowledgeable Nantucket travelers, and the restaurant didn't let us down. Fabulous flavors.
Our meal was just ok. It took 90 minutes for our entrees to arrive. Pork was lukewarm and presentation was lacking. Disappointing experience this visit.
One of Nantucket's top restaurants, a favorite of ours since it opened. A little noisy but no big deal. Very fresh food very creatively prepared.
We've been to Oran Mor several times. We requested on Open Table and on the phone a table in the cozy bar by a window as we've done in the past. When we arrived at 6:15pm (early on purpose to ensure a bar window table),both tables by windows were unoccupied. But we were told they were reserved and were sat elsewhere. When we left at 7:30pm, one of those tables was still unoccupied.
We felt we had been treated shabbily. The food, as usual, was excellent. We had a very professional, friendly server. But the initial experience with the hostess colored our experience. Will we go back, we don't know.
We have tried them all on Nantucket.....From the latest hot spot, Cru, to the dozens that have lasted a season or two and disappeared..Oran Mor continues to be in the top tier year after year..It is our "Go to" place on Nantucket.
Service was a little bit weird. Food was excellent. Waitress was very pushy trying to sell us booze after we declined three times. Long story short:
Oran Mor is our favorite restaurant on Nantucket! The service is outstanding ! Our favorite server is Theo. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. On this occasion, my husband ordered tuna tartare with beets. He loved it. I ordered foie gras two ways and with fig. It was amazing! We both ordered the duck for our entree. We highly recommend this fabulous restaurant!
Nantucket has so many restaurants, this seems to be over sold for what it is. Odd chicken dish, cold halibut and extraordinarily small portion for vegan guest, although we called ahead of time to ask. We found many other places that impressed more with the care of food and drink as well as amenities and cost the same or less.
We were seated immediately and the server was very helpful. The appetizers were delish, especially the oysters with the cucumbers and salmon caviar, as well as the torchon of foie gras. The fish main dishes were also very good- the striped bass and the fluke. I highly recommend Oran Mor for a special meal while you are on Nantucket.
Year after year we return for the excellent food.
Have been coming to Nantucket for vacation with the family the last 15 years. Each year my wife and I go out for one nice dinner out on the town. For the last six or seven years it's been Oran Mor. The food is always consistently excellent and the ambiance is great. Lots of small rooms so it's never noisy. The quality of the wait staff varies from year to year, and in a place like Nantucket all of the restaurants fight for the same talent, so that should expected .... but the food never disappoints.
