I took my wife to Orso for a late Valentine's date night, and our experience was everything I hoped it would be. From the food, to the service, to the ambiance, we had a wonderful evening together. Thanks for providing the perfect venue for such a memorable night!

I ate vegan from the menu - parm mushroom and roasted cauliflower. All of it was fantastic and I can’t wait to go back!!

We went to Orso for my sister's birthday and were surprised with a birthday card ready for her. Our server was very attentive to our needs, friendly, and made us feel comfortable. The food was delicious! It can be pricey, but definitely worth going to for special occasions. It is another restaurant that I think of that is very Alaskan.

Great meal. Creative dishes, who knew you could have a seafood corn dog. I recommend it.

MY husband got sick from his meal half way through

Bummed the food went downhill since I had been 2 years ago! I never salt my food at a restaurant, holy moly the tenderloin tips had zero flavor and the polenta was chunky. The fettucine had no flavor the chicken was dry I had to dump salt all over it to taste anything (and I’m not a salt lover). My husbands lamb shank was cooked lovely but had no flavor either. Very disappointed and will not be back.

We chose the Valentine's Day special, and it was superb. The harvest salad was sublime, and while the small pieces of fish were very nice on the main course, the steak was melt-in-your-mouth tender and delicious. For my wife, the served it with a gluten-free au jus, while mine had a very pleasant sauce.

Dessert was very nice, their creme brûlée a treat and the dipped strawberries delightful. We also enjoyed coffee and an excellent red wine.

Service was excellent, and Orso's did a great job with gluten-free options in their menu.

Despite the restaurant being full all night and we arrived at 9 pm, everything was working well and our waiter was efficient, friendly and knowledgable, as well as doing an excellent job.

Overall, a most enjoyable meal out, in line with Orso's high standards.

We madeour reservation for Valentine’s Day a few weeks ago. We were seated by the door which was undesirable. Can’t. Say we’d go back... always enjoyed it as it was a regular. Disappointed in our latest experience.
