Always happy for a delicious dinner at Orzo!
Service was excellent. Caesar salad very nicely don. Pasta great. Loved the Panne Cota.
Shared the beet salad and cod with mussels. Food was attractive and delicious!
We had a 7:30 reservation but came at 7:15 because our train arrived several minutes earlier than scheduled. We were greeted very warmly and immediately seated at a very nice table in front of a very colorful painting of our favorite Barcelona! The waiter was very helpful,friendly, and attentive. My wife and I loved our seafood dishes, which were prepared perfectly.
Had dinner at Orzo this weekend. As has happened over and over at Orzo, we had terrific food, great service and enjoyed ourselves very much. We brought out-of-town friends with us and they were very impressed.
Excellent food as usual. Service is attentive but not hovering. The vegetarian in our party was very satisfied as was our steak and potato diner in our party.
Out of MANY visits, only one was even marginally less than great. Love this place and visit as often as any restaurant in Cville. Great food and awesome wine selection!
This is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville and has been since they opened. Great food and service.
Wonderful meal as usual - our favorite place to dine out in Charlottesville. Started with the tomato fennel soup, which was outstanding - flavors perfectly balanced! We were surprised when co-owner Ken recommended a red wine to accompany our entrees, but he was correct: a white would not have stood up to the flavorful risotto and salmon dishes. One of the owners of Orzo is always present, which we believe accounts for the consistency of the delicious food and friendly ambiance.
Enjoyable experience. Wonderful food. Allowed to linger after we finished our meal.
We are fans of Orzo in general, and our dinner this week lived up to our high expectations when we go there. Our group of four were all more than satisfied with our meals.The tomato soup had a very smooth, smoky flavor; the burrata cheese appetizer got rave reviews from all who tasted it and the roasted beet salad was delicious. All four in our group raved about their entrees. My steak was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of seasoning to bring out the flavor and was served over tasty olive oil mashed potatoes! We shared a tiramisu that was about the best I have ever tasted. Every flavor was distinct but still blended together to be heavenly.
Service was --as always--friendly and efficient.
Outstanding service & limited but wonderful menu. Bolognese so so delicious. We are new to the area & this is going to be one of our regular go to spots.
The food at Orzo is beautifully prepared. We noticed that my steak and my son's duck were both enhanced in such a way that we could really savor the true flavor of the meal. The portions were perfect for us, and we left feeling satisfied. We've been visiting many restaurants this year with the goal of selecting one for a special graduation dinner. We think we've found our ideal spot in Orzo.
went on a Monday night, quiet early on, filled up later. Salmon was wonderful, doesnt come with much just some couscous, could have gotten a salad or mashed potatoes. vanilla panna cotta was wonderful as was the expensive coffee. Nice atmosphere, great server, Emily.
Need to go more often to eat everything!
From the warm welcome, to the superb service coupled with a delicious meal...it was a perfect evening to celebrate with friends! We love Orzo!
I think, in general, it was a good dinner with good service. Nothing special.
Always reliable for good food and some interesting appetizer choices. Definitely my “go to” spot for when I’m craving a good Bolognese sauce with a nice selection of wines.
Orzo has the best food in town. And it applies to everything they make. Even my Caesar salad was exceptional. My entre, the Cioppino, was heavenly. The broth alone was a masterpiece. It had a subtle smokey tomato base with various herbal notes that made me want to lick the bowl after I was finished.
Great Valentines Day dinner. Orzo’s food is consistently delicious and never disappoints!
It’s is our favorite restaurant however the service was not up to par. It was a fixe price menu with very good choices however the servers could not manage to serve them in the correct order or in a timely manner. They usually are excellent, and this is the first time we were disappointed. For such an expensive meal, I expected more- their usual is perfect. Our table was by the front door, and we were so cold throughout our meal. We now wish we chose to go to Orzo on a quiet weekday evening when they have always done a superb job.
Outstanding dining experience! Thoroughly enjoyed the range of food options , coziness, and the attentive waitstaff. Great place to celebrate with a spouse who is your best friend!
We were visiting from Delaware and were looking for a restaurant with some good healthy,Organic Vegetarian options .We Found it and WoW what a great experience lots of menu options and choices of sides dishes . Excellent Fish , Pasta and the Duck was excellent. Will definitely Come back next time in the area........Thanks
I love this restaurant!!!
I always have a great meal at Orzo. It is one of my " go to" restaurants.
Always good-one of my favorite spots in Charlottesville
Good service, dinner was very good, sides were a bit small for the entre size. Quite good deserts.
Delicious, creatively prepared dishes and excellent, friendly service made this a memorable meal!
Delicious food with a great server and good wine.
Orzo is a perennial fave and never disappoints! This year's Restaurant Week menu was fantastic.
I have been coming to C'ville often this last year and a half to meet our college son to try different restaurants, and again we were not disappointed!
We had a wonderful three course meal and ordered the dessert as well from the restaurant week menu. Outstanding food, Juliana our waitress was very knowledgeable about wine, drink list and the foods offered. Thank you for the memorable dining experience.
This was restaurant week so service a bit slow. Waiter Todd was super attentive and kept us apprised of status of our order. Food was very good although cod could have been hotter. Noise level rose as evening went on, by time we left (8ish) was pretty loud. Side room is much nicer than main restaurant though, more intimate. Hummus is to die for. Will be back!
Enjoyed dinner for restaurant week. Great value, excellent food!
Orzo is always a great choice for dinner. Service is excellent, food is amazing and wine selection superb!
Love the energy at Orzo.
Our meal (steak) was absolutely the best, perfectly prepared, served with a blend of delicious vegetables. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was festive. Everyone was nice. It was a perfect night with friends. We will be back!
Food excellent, service tremendous
We both ordered salads, my friend a special, with salmon & myself the winter salad. Both were excellent, fresh and very tasty. My friend didn’t like the salad dressing and since it was on the side was able to ask for the same dressing as served with the winter salad. Our waiter responded quickly, along with the fresh pepper we requested.
I would have preferred a table that was not in a long row of tables, especially when two other dinners we placed right next to us...with so many empty tables?
I doubt I would return, even though the food & service was good, the seating & ambiance was not.
We were right next to kitchen and watched them clean the entire thing. I watched them touch the pipes to drain the sinks then plate food right after. Charged 3 dollars for 2 anchovies on top of the Caesar salad and the steak was chewy. Waitress was very nice.
Due to a mix up from open table we did not get our favorite table but it worked out even better . The owner selected another table for easy conversation and brought us a glass of champagne. It was restaurant week and some restaurants don’t go all out with the food offerings or quantity but this was not the case at Oreos. I had the best rack of lamb ever and my husband had the salmon. The appetizers were excellent-frutti for him buratta for me. Love this restaurant!! Our favorite.
amazing menu for restaurant week, high quality and innovative offerings, all for a very affordable price
Excellent birthday dinner for my mother. Couldn’t have asked for better service, food and wine!
