Oro Ratings and Reviews
If you are looking for a quaint place to eat dinner out in Scituate this is not the place. The restaurant is too noisy and I felt like I was in a bar and not a restaurant. The bright fluorescent lights shining in my eyes certainly did not add anything to the experience. Perhaps the owners were trying to distract me with the bright lights and noise so I would not notice the gas station through the big front picture window. To top things off the food was over priced and the menu resembled a bar menu and the waitress informed us a few of the items on the already sparse menu were not available.
Arrived here for our 7:30pm reservation and were told our table was being cleared - no problem, just about a 5 minute wait. Had a lovely table in the back, where it seemed a bit quieter since the bar area was loud and in the front. Ordered a bottle of wine and cheese board to start. Husband had the pork chop for an entrée and I had the mushroom pappardelle. Both were fabulous. Lovely restaurant, a bit noisy but not horrible, great staff. Would love to go back again
Both the chicken and the haddock were delicious. Service was excellent. Very early dinner (5:30 pm). By the time we left restaurant at 7:30, the place was so noisy that you had to shout across the table. Because of the unpleasant noise level, I'd only go again on a non-weekend or hopefully quieter time.
It was an ok meal; nothing to write home about. My husband's greek tomato and cucumber salad came without tomatoes, which is one of the things featured on the menu description. The corn chowder was very good; the chicken was ok if you like chicken leg and thigh. I wouldn't order it again as I prefer white meat.
We wanted to go back to Situate where we had our first date 18 yrs ago. Many restaurants in the area we've gone to over the years are the same old nothing new and some have really gone downhill. But found this really neat and new one and we gave it a try. It was pretty good our dishes were unique and could be adjusted if something wasn't to your taste. We had a great seat in a quiet corner as requested and enjoyed the evening! The dessert was delicious I highly suggest the Profiteroles so save room! It does seem to me the chef puts his passion in the execution of his dishes and creating a menu of a finer taste with local support of the suppliers of the food.
Give it a try... we'll go back and like every place sometimes they have off days it might stay good on my suggestion and then again maybe not. But this night of dining was very enjoyable. Good food... good service from Elizabeth and a pleasant atmosphere.
We reserved on a day when they were offering a limited menu (a Sunday with no brunch) which was not communicated to us. They did tell us, once we were seated, we could leave if we were not happy with the short menu, but we adjusted. There were only a few other people in the restaurant and we know their food is usually very good, so we stayed. Unfortunately, three out of four orders were not delivered as requested. The two burgers ordered medium rare were very, very rare. I ate mine although it was purple red, but my daughter left over half of hers because it looked "just too bloody." The request to hold tomatoes from the wrap for another diner was completely ignored. We would have pointed these things out and asked for corrections, but for most of the meal--including when we wanted the bill--our waitress was doing other things and we couldn't get her attention. A really disappointing experience at what I typically think of as a very nice place. We probably won't return.
We've had positive experiences at Oro in the past. The noise level when we went last Thursday made that experience unpleasant. There was a boisterous party of six at one end of the room, and it was difficult to have a normal conversation at our table. At the point we left the restaurant, the party next to us asked to move their table because of the noise level. The salmon I ordered was good, but the risotto my spouse ordered was underwhelming. I am sure we will return in the future, hoping for a better experience.
We arrived early and were happy they were able to seat us at a table by the window. Waitress was very nice but we had to ask for silverware and napkins. I was disappointed with the menu - I had looked at it online but thought it must be abbreviated so I was was surprised when that's all there was. Fortunately there were 2 specials. I would say the place is very noisy, food is just okay - nothing special for the price, we will search for someplace different next time we visit the area.
Food was outstanding.Waitress was very friendly .There seems to be a big disconnect between bar, kitchen and dining area. Drinks took forever even though it was very early and not busy. Wait for food too long...No bread served while waiting for meal. The noise was terrible and the restaurant was not that busy . Chairs at tables way too low. This is too bad as the food is very very good...maybe they should offer takeout.
We didn't have a reservation and the only available table was in the bar area. We don't drink but we knew the noise level would increase and it did. But the service was excellent as was all four of our dinners although a bit pricey. We would definitely go there again.
This was my first time at Oro. What a great find. Four of us had a lovely dinner. The food was fantastic. I had the haddock with potato latkes with a spectacular meunière sauce. This was cooked perfectly. My friends had the crab risotto, which she said was fresh and delicious, the pork chop with hush puppies which was reported to be tender and flavorful and the misto of tuna and salmon which was bright and clean and well seasoned. This place really is a gem and our server was wonderful.
As usual, another excellent dining experience at Oro. We tried a few items from the new summer menu, they did not disappoint. Risotto with crab & asparagus was delicious. The Haddock was tasty and light, great preparation. They also have good options for kids. Our daughter tried the grilled cheese and gave two 👍🏼.
One of our favorite restaurants.
Whenever we are at home my reservation is made for dinner at Oro.
We banter around about going somewhere else but why bother.
Oro service is always topnotch and the food is all of my favorites in one dinner. They will also split an entrée for my husband and myself.
Don't miss the misto and save room for cookie sandwich dessert
