Our player pianos make us unique! But our food makes us special. We feature rich European-influenced American dishes using things like:
- Eggs from vegetarian-fed free-range chickens, high in healthy Omega 3 fatty acids
- White whole wheat flour, a variety naturally high in fiber yet light enough for pastry
- Vegetables from local farms that are certified organic growers
- Butter, milk, and ice cream from grass-fed cattle, another Omega 3 source.

Our food is not low-fat or low-calorie, but its ingredients are healthful. The meal will leave you feeling reinvigorated, not weighed down!

    A great place to celebrate a birthday with friends. The instruments and music are outstanding and the staff, if not busy, answered our questions and opened up the instruments to show the mechanisms behind.

    The steak on the sampler plate was partly gristle and quite chewy. Not up to usual.

    Out of the way, neighborhood, small restaurant next to the San Jose Stage company. Reasonable prices, limited menu and wine list keeps food very fresh. Enjoyed the strawberry, blue cheese salad, sea bass on a bed of zucchini and potatoes, plus a sorbet with fruit. The Sauvignon Blanc went very well with the meal.

    A small but imaginative menu. The ambiance provided by the self-playing pianos is very special. Just a few minutes walk from the Convention Center and the California Theater.

    The food was delicious as always, especially the fountain drinks, which are a specialty. Noise level is because of the antique player pianos! These are another feature—they are scattered around the room and play periodically. I find this delightful, but it can interrupt a conversation when one nearby starts playing.

    Orchestria will be added to our frequently visited restaurants. Plenty of parking surrounding restaurant. Nostalgic home feel with a unique musical experience. Drinks are limited to wine and non alcoholic drinks but there is something for everyone. Fun place to go with out of town guests or music appreciation friends. Food is plentiful too.
