The food was great, with regards to the side dish you just don't get much. I think I had 3 baby carrots that came with my $28 rockfish.
The website needs to be updated to show most entrees are above $30 a plate.
The place is very classy, and is a classic dine-in place to bring a date, or special occasion. If money isn't a problem, they offer a wide varoety of wine, and local cuisine. The service is timely, and very good at what they do. Meals come separate, and the atmosphere is wonderful.
The place looks like it needs a beep clean. The food is way over priced. The prices are geared to tourist. I don't need to go back.
Our meals were very good though, while the ingredients in the mac & cheese were enticing, the bacon overwhelmed all other
The server was attentive and gracious. The restruaunt was nicely decorated, comfortable, and though almost full, surprisingly quiet.
I did find myself wishing the menu included a fillet or other quality cut of 8 oz. or less.
Our server went the extra mile. I've never had a bad dining experience here. The only negative is that it is often hard to find parking very close. Be prepared to walk several blocks to a parking garage.
Orso’s never disappoints! I took my coworker to dinner here (her first time) and she absolutely loved it.
The food is so much amazing. We love the ambiance of the place. We'll definitely come back again sometime.
Some of the drinks on the bar menu (smokey maple?) are wayyy to expensive!
Great food and service as usual. One of our favorite places.
Everything was great! We all enjoyed our meal. We will definitely have to visit again.
Our waiter was top notch. Made a special occasion even more special. Allowed us as much time as we needed. Highly recommend your restaurant. Excellent food and service by all.
It was a little cold in there but over all really enjoyed the food. The waitress put down the wrong meal so I had to wait longer to get my food and my daughter was almost done eating when mine got there:(
As always we were impressed with Orso's service, food and ambiance. The show menu was also very fun, easy and delicious.
The vegetarian meal I had was amazing but a bit too salty due to the olives. It was a very interesting way to serve tofu and veggies. I would definitely order it again. The wine list was really nice as were the individual glass choices. My waitress was very attentive making the meal more enjoyable.I would recommend this highly and enjoyed the quieter upstairs room.
We reserved a table for 2 to have a nice meal prior to attending a show. We were seated promptly. We ordered cocktails, appetizers, entrees and desserts. The food was very good but the service was awful.
Based on the poor service we will not be dining here again.
I was not very impressed with the service. We got a table upstairs, far from everything.
The food was ok, nothing special.
The food was amazing and our server was very attentive. He asked me about my allergies and made sure to check on me just in case anything was wrong. I've never had service like this before!
There food was incredible. We also really enjoyed the flights of wine.
I love the alcohol samplers had a very good meal with an old friend hadn't seen in awhile We had the deviled egg appetizers very good I had to halibut she had the filet excellent food but to top it off with coffee and Tiramisu so good
The chicken In the chicken Parmesan was paper thin and tasted like something from Olive Garden. The creme brûlée was not very good and seemd like another item you would find at Olive Garden and not a place like Orso. The rockfish was delicious though. Overall The prices do not reflect in the meals.
I brought my lovely wife here for a date night, while attending a marriage conference. The atmosphere was Great. The food was awesome. The service was spot on. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed a dinner date early evening on a Friday just after opening. The dining room was barely occupied yet so the atmosphere was quiet. The waiter saw to our beverage needs and offered excellent off-menu options. The food was well prepared and well-plated. We also enjoyed a tasty dessert. The food came quickly and we were in and out in about half an hour. We were encouraged to stay as long as we liked when the waiter brought our check.
Phenomenal Food, a little on the pricey side but totally worth it.
We love having dinner at Orso’s. The food is excellent, the servers are engaging and the atmosphere is relaxing. We have never been disappointed with our experiences at Orso’s.
First time eating here. Heard the prices were high prior to going. Was very happy with the portions of food for our entrees. Appetizers and soups were very good also. Best mixed drinks I've had in a while. Nick was our waitet, he did a fantastic job. We will be return customers.
Wonderful from the moment we walked in. Amazing service, great food and drinks. Will be back soon.
Retirement, bdays combined.
The food was mostly good, other than a $6 loaf of bread that was so “toasty” that it couldn’t be cut without making a giant mess.
The service was a stand out, for how surprisingly bad it was. We had to go looking for a spoon for the soup because one had not been brought with the soup, a desired drink refill didn’t come until just as we were leaving (they generously said they would take it off the bill), and it took ~45 minutes between our appetizer and entree.
This was the first really bad service we have gotten there. Not sure if the good food outweighs the service anymore.
Flank steak was disappoinging , too dry. Food was lukewarm. Mimosa mock tail was so tangy I couldn’t drink more than 25% of it. I had amazing crab legs there once but they s visit left me wishing I stayed home.
Loved the food! Service was outstanding and it was a great place to go.
We waited quite a long time for our food tables that were seated after us hy 20-30 minutes received there food before us. The waiter apologized once but I feel like there should have been more communication. Also the special that evening was not very good, tiny portions for a fairly large price. The halibut lacked flavor and the Quinoa was underdone. So when you wait 75 minutes for your food and it really isn’t that good it is hard to recommend. We have had good service there before but Saturday they were reallyoff their game.
Orsos is always good but the service was unusually lacking. I had to ask for water and when the busser brought the water bottle he just put it on the table instead of filling our glasses. I also had to ask for them to clear our table of finished glasses and plates several times vs them being proactive. One guest in our group had a late delivery of her food but all of us waited to eat until she was served.
We were pretty disappointed with our visit to Orso. We expected to spend a lot of money but were hoping the food would be worth the cost. The ribeye was tough, and the seafood Mac ‘n cheese was unimpressive. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a high quality meal.
The best halibut I've eaten lately. Delicious!
Great restaurant, great food, great service. Favorite restaurant in Anchorage.
Since I live locally I would love to see the early morning brunch brought back, as well as more/different menu selections for supper. Mix it up a bit instead of the same menu items. Also it would be nice to see more of a selection of whiskies/bourbons at the bar. Even the whiskey medleys need spiced up in my opinion.
It almost seems like Orso's caters more to tourists than locals. This is not a slam, because we are fortunate to have a great restaurant, but some changes in the menu would be welcomed.
What a fabulous meal - we came just as the halibut started coming into season. A wonderful place with lots of gluten free options.
Pricey but very good food
Service was excellent. Server was timely and attentive. Food was terrific.
The appetizer and salad were so good that we were hoping our main course wouldn't come too soon so we could completely enjoy what was already in front of us. The variety of tastes were sensational. The butler was amazing, very knowledgeable and attentive but not overly attentive. And the main course was delicious, As Good As It Gets. $100 very well spent. Oh, I forgot to mention the desert... Different than your normal Fair around town, and it was to die for. I recommend this restaurant for a very satisfying dining experience! Was a great way to celebrate my birthday.
