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!

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.

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.

Great place for a date or special occasion. We sat upstairs so it was very quiet. My husband ordered the fresh catch which was mahi mahi and it was outstanding. I would definitely recommend trying the polenta ragu and king crab corn dogs on the small plate menu.

Was my husband’s and my first time going to Orso. I would recommend it to any other couples for dinner dates. Not much of a kids menu but that was okay seems we had someone watching our little ones. Any special occasions or just a dinner date with your love/spouse, then this is the place to eat.

The food, the waitstaff, all were great. We’ve dined here a few times and it’s consistently delicious. Our waiter was very personable, our flat irons were brought to us quickly and cooked perfectly. The manager always takes time to visit every table to make sure everyone is happy.

Best Salmon I have ever eaten...and I have eaten a lot of Salmon. Very attentive service. Appreciated being able to make a fairly last minute reservation. Menu was a little pricey and servings were not overly generous.

Orso has been our "go to" restaurant for a delicious dinner & impeccable service. They certainly did not disappoint for this birthday celebration. Always have a variety of entrées & interestingly enough crazy appetizers that top the wildest imagination.

The waiter lost our order but that was ok. However, the rock fish was bad. Since it was a somewhat special occassion with people she hadn't met before my wife was reluctant to send back to the kitchen the rock fish dinner. It was just bad.
