Orzo Kitchen & Wine Bar
Have loved the restaurant for years. Great before basketball games. Service is promt. Anne Chatfield
I would recommend Orzo to friends because we have had amazing service and meals in the past. We love your restaurant, but I am reviewing our meal on April 15th only. Our server must have been new because she was clueless as to how some of the meals were prepared and she didn't bring us your amazing bread and hummus (one of our favorite parts of eating at Orzo). The place was not busy, yet we were seated between two parties, one of which was extremely loud. It was my mom's birthday dinner, and I couldn't understand why we were all squished together when the rest of the place was empty. The salads were a 10 as usual, but the meals were not as good as usual. We did not have the usual fun experience that we expected at Orzo.
Wonderful family dinner night after the wedding. Bride and Groom attended and 4 bottles of wine later we stumbled across the street and into bed.
Our food was delicious and our server most attentive
Waitress and host seemed bored
Service was not great. Given wrong wine and then wrong food. Food was ok.
Excellent vegan options! We ordered multiple vegan dishes, sides and appetizers and all of them were delicious!
Another great restaurant in Charlottesville! Service is great and food is always consistently good.
Our dinner was fabulous and our server Katharine was excellent!!
The previous page pretty much says it all. Since I come on Fridays with my friend, I wish that, from one Friday to the next, the salad special were not always salmon. The the calmer salad is always excellent. I have definitely recommended Orzo to friends and colleagues.
Great food, great atmosphere. Beverage selection was excellent.
Always delicious and interesting.
Service was a bit slow to begin with, but improved. Food was very good
Delicious food as always. For the second time in a row, though, the service was substandard. Both times the waiter seemed to forget about us. Last time we sat for 20 min. looking at our empty plates without seeing the waiter, and this time an item that was ordered for dessert was not delivered (we ended up just forgoing it). Perhaps this seeming inattention is the result of the gratuity being automatically included in the bill, so waiters don't feel the same level of concern? Or maybe you're understaffed?
Our server, Maureen, was incredible.
Fantastic. Had the lunch special and it was off the charts.
Every time I go to Orzo, I am reminded of what a gem it is. The food is consistently wonderful and the service great.
One of the absolute best restaurants in Charlottesville!
Orzo was busy yet welcoming on a Saturday night, when we met some friends. Two of us had the eggplant salad appetizer, and it was lovely. I wouldn't have thought to put it on a bed of Greek yogurt, but it so complemented the other interesting flavors.
Our friends had pasta and another had mussels and those were great. Overall, the food never disappoints, the ambiance is great, and it continues to be a place we love to eat.
Always great!! Was not disappointed!
The meal and cocktails were very good. The service was efficient, but the server kept interrupting to remove any silverware or plates that were not being used or were finished with, in what was a overly disruptive fashion.
Great service, food, and wine list!
My nephew needed to talk and I wanted to treat him to a good meal. At Orzo you can have a conversation and eat well.
Food was to die for, service was great, and I always love the atmosphere. One of my favorites!! Leftovers of the bolognese were even better (don’t know how that was possible — it was so good when we dined!!) for lunch the next day.
It was very busy and yet the service was outstanding! The food was delicious as well. We are fans!
Exceptional food, as always. The tuna special was truly outstanding, pairing beautifully with the extraordinary wine we selected from their excellent list.
DELICIOUS..hard to find a mediocre dish there. Everything was excellent
Wonderful, as always.
We had a great meal with friends from out of town. The food was terrific as always, and our server was friendly and helpful. She even wrote down all the ingredients of one of the dishes we had so our friend could try to recreate it!
Your severs our terrific. Sold us a great wine. Food, as always was excellent. Keep up the good work.
This restaurant is not to be missed. Hands down, our favorite C’ville eatery!
Found online in Charolettesville area my wife and I have not tried. Nice location.Food was delicious and server help pair the wine to our dishes and appetizers. Service was great and attentive. It was a cold night and was sat to table right next to the door. Made a reservation and was not too busy, thought we be in the back. That would be my only compliant. That will not stop my wife and I to come back in enjoy restaurant and will be back.
business dinner meeting at Orzo; outstanding service, food, and setting; even with a large number of other guests, it was easy to converse and the noise level was acceptable. Outstanding value.
Great food. Great service. We have eaten here many times. Always first class food with reasonable prices
Consistently great food. Local farm to table menu. Great cocktails.
Had a lovely dinner here the other night. For a Sunday they were moderately busy but nothing lacked. Atmosphere was nice but kitchen was little loud and music was more trendy than expected. Would be a nice environment to dine with friends. Food was awesome. We ordered the brushetta, salmon, bolognese and sides of broccoli and fries. Really enjoyed each dish and had a star server. Cooper was attentive, quick and enjoyable to chat with. We will definitely make another reservation on our next trip to Charlottesville and will be sure to recommend to any of our friends travelling to the area.
We went early Sunday evening after an afternoon concert at UVA. We made a reservation on Open Table and got a very nice corner table in the bar area. Despite being near the bar, it was pleasantly quiet. The service, food, and atmosphere were outstanding!
Really excellent food!!!!
Great food, service was top notch and the ambiance cannot be beat....I find the prices fair...
Can be hit or miss. Food is almost always very good. Service can be really haphazard (and definitely was lacking this time) and ambiance, too -- in this case we were seated by an open door and it was cold.
The food was very good. The service was horrible. The waitress acted like we were an inconvenience for her. She didn’t even get a drink order till after the food came out. She was extremely short and unprofessional...her customer service needs a lot of improvement.
