ORSO Ratings and Reviews
Food was great. Service was friendly, efficient, unobtrusive. One of the best martinis in Anchorage. The pre-performance menu is a great deal. The rockfish entree was a generous portion and still delicious the next day from my doggie bag. The crispy cauliflower appetizer was so tasty and unique. Could have been my whole meal with the romanescu sauce
Salmon Chowder and bread exceptional as it has been in the past. The creme brule' may have been made by an amateur this time. There was a layer of crystallize sugar between the custard and the top. The top surface was like a sheet of glass it had been broiled a little long.
Also, the the chocolate dessert was pretty hard, stiff, and may not have been fresh.
We realize that changing the help changes everything. Our family may try ORso again sometime, but right now, we're just a little disappointed.
Started the experience with getting seated right away! the hostess greeted my wife and me with a smile and many recommendations. Ordered the best old fashion cocktail I've ever had! Dinner was amazing and our waitress was on point. highly recommend and will be going back!!
Had reservations for 5:30. Arrived 5 min late. There were 3 other tables occupied. The hostess proceeded to seat us next to the kitchen in the noisiest, busiest part of the restaurant next to a server station. I thought a moment and asked to move to another area that wasn’t so busy and was quieter considering the restaurant was virtually empty. The hostess didn’t look happy and made the move seem like a hassle for her. We did get moved. The waiter we had was just fine. We both enjoyed our meals. The beer was good. My non-alcoholic drinks I wouldn’t order again, but that was just my taste. Desert was good. Food arrived in a timely manner. Restaurant was quiet and seating was comfortable.
We were going to a show at the PAC and started our evening with dinner at ORSO. The "show special" menu is a fantastic idea, assuring excellent food in a very timely manner at an attractive price. The prawn and flat steak entrees were delicious, as was our appetizers and desserts. A perfect way to start our evening.
As always, ORSO didn't disappoint! A delicious meal, at a great price when using the Showtime menu. My dad hadn't been before, and he was very pleased with the meal (and for a guy who is uncomfortable in any restaurant more fancy than a sports bar, this was a big deal!) I will definitely return to ORSO again and again!
