Excellent seafood. Appetizer of the muscles was superior.
Wonderful melon gazpacho, mussels and roast chicken. Lovely meal with good service.
We were visiting Seattle for the week and went on a Gourmet Food Tour through Savor Seattle and received a discount card for several restaurants. Our guide recommended Orfeo and we’re glad we went! It was a wonderful dinner, we shared an appetizer of flat bread with small bowls of toppings - roasted garlic, olive tapenade, baba ganoosh & burrata (it’s better than it sounds)! I had the carbonara, hubby had the bone in pork chop, both excellent! Our service by Carrie was fabulous, she was very helpful, friendly and gracious. I highly recommend Orfeo!
Service was worst ever.. normally have great service. Ordered the oyster appetizer... both parties got sick. Since that the only common food we ate I concluded it was the oysters (plus one was spit out at table )
Always love the food and service! Was a bit noisy tonight but overall very good.
Went on a Tuesday night which was "Tango night" and there were free tango lessons. People seemed to be having fun. Food didn't take long to come out. We ordered pasta dishes and both were quite tasty.
The food was delicious. We will definitely visit when we next visit Seattle.
Excellent service and outstanding food in a modern, yet classy, atmosphere. I will be coming back for more soon!
This restaurant is consistently excellent by all accounts, including food, service, and ambiance. We especially enjoy the vegetarian options, including the happy hour menu.
A little expensive, and the food was not that great
One of our favorite restaurants. As we expected everything was great. So lovely to go to diner and have the food be prepared with care and have attentive service. Everything is always the bet quality from the anchovies on the delightful salad to the beef in the hamburger sliders to the oven roasted mussels. Yummy!!
Outstanding flavor combinations, very well prepared dishes. The restaurant manager was incredibly friendly and funny and quite helpful in choosing our wines.
This restaurant is in my neighborhood alas, it is not. The room is cavernous; in the middle of the room, tables; along a wall, semi-circular booths. The booths are the least bad of the two options. Specify a booth and you will avoid sitting with your date at an exposed, noisy table; instead sit in a booth staring at the exposed, noisy tables. Aesthetically, the room has a late eighties, early nineties feel: catsup colored accent wall, black laquer, curvy wood thing. Service was both indifferent and inattentive. A seemingly angry bald guy would stop by at our table looking annoyed; take an order; then disappear. When flagged down, he would bring some part of our order. Cocktails were horrible; but attractively described in the menu. The food was 'meh' to 'blech'. Do not get the Italian wedding soup; you'd do better to eat a divorce. It is watery and bland; in an attempt to salvage it, someone hurled a load of black pepper into it. The meatballs were dense; dry; gamey; rubbery, unpleasant and the best part of the soup. The Antipasto was uninspired toast, greasy salami, a sliver of parmigiana cheese (tasted like the same cheese that the waiter would grate on food) . Back to the cocktails, apparently the angry bald waiter is also bartender. He should not be.
We love this restaurant. They treat us as valued friends and customers. We have dined at Chef Kevin’s restaurants for many years. They never disappoint. The service is always exceptional The food,if it is not fresh and perfect, it is not on the menu This is true if all four chefs restaurants as well as Tempesta donuts. Tonight the pork chops with balsamic reduction and roasted fresh figs were the star. Such a lovely, delicious, relaxing Sunday evening.
Amazing food. Wonderful server! Octopus salad is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!
A good space and not too fussy; but thoughtful. I'm not a fan of the relatively open floor plan - it can be a bit noisy and non intimate feeling.
Delicious food. Octopus appetizer, 2 very wonderful pastas, with creme brulee for dessert. Great service. I appreciated their decent price for 1/2 wine bottle. Tuesday is Tango night whose music and dancers made it an extra fun evening to hear and observe the music and dancers.
Accommodating and attentive staff was the perfect compliment to our meal. The halibut and the mushroom pizza were both exquisite.
We had a party of 11, made a reservation, their wood fired method has some awesome flavor! Bolognese was amazing, as was the pizza - Thanks for a memorable meal!
we love this place. quiet for a conversation but lively. great service and amazingly food. we love the mussels. carmine pizza was delicious. my only hold back in recommending this establishment is that it will become so popular that we can not get a reservation for dinner.
We had a great evening. Great service, great food, great atmosphere.
Everyone was so friendly and fun. Enjoyed chatting with our waiter before the other guests arrived. The food was excellent - especially the octopus salad and the unique but delicious Carbonara.
Our waiter, Adam, was wonderful. The food was amazing! I said I wanted to taste my husbands and so Adam asked the chef to divide each plate so we got both. Very thoughtful!
Amazing !!!! Katy was awesome. Best Italian food iv EVER had.
Katie was great! She was fun and made sure we were well taken care if. My son had the pizza (loved it), I had the oyster and mussel appetizers for my meal and my husband had a pasta dish. We had tiramisu and strawberry creme brûlée for desert. All of the food was wonderful. Very enjoyable evening.
The service was rather usual. I had to get up to ask for pepper. Refills on beverages were not offered. If a 20% gratuity/service charge was not included I would’ve left 15%.
The upside is that we ordered from the happy hour menu and everything we tried was outstanding! The portions were very large for happy hour.
The ambiance was very good and we will return.
Great food and service. The decoration was a little bit sad.
Orfeo was a great find on open table. The service was friendly and helpful. It was a Monday night and relatively slow crowd but that just made them more attentive. We ordered the mussels which we fabulous and I got Gracie's pasta. The pasta was good although simple: it was essentially very fancy buttered noodles. Regardless, loved it. Would recommend to locals especially for happy hour!
Everything from the appetizers (smoked mussels), to the main course (Ling Cod) and finishing with the dessert (tiramisu) was fantastic. Everyone in our party was very impressed. The service was well beyond par, a true team effort. When back in Seattle, we will return. A very well balanced menu with changes often.
Went there for a first date and it was impressive. I got a second date with the help of the crew at Orfeo. Thanks and I will be back.
Delicious pizza. Very accommodating, friendly hostess and server.
Fabulous meal, stellar service, amazing cocktails, beautiful place. We would go back in a heartbeat.
Poached shrimp with heads were amazing. Baked oysters were lovely but the, selected for me oysters, were fantastic. I love large sweet briny oysters. Salad and tiramisu were wonderful. Loved Orfeo!!!!
We ordered a lot of appetizers (i.e., charcuterie board, cheese fritters, bread with spreads/dips, Italian soup) versus an entree. Everything. And I mean everything, was delicious. The staff was great, but if I'm being picky (when am I not?), we did have to ask for more water and more drinks versus being offered. Nice lighting and set up, however the decor seemed a bit outdated and reminiscent of the Old World. I would definitely return.
very much enjoyed our meal at Orfeo. first time and it won't be the last. only issue was an apparent overuse of red chili flakes. my wife's Bolognese and my Carbonara with Dungeness both had too much pepper flakes. we even asked if my wife's dish was spicy and were told no. neither dish listed red pepper flakes as an ingredient on the menu (really almost overpowered a delicate dish like Carbonara) which is a major oversight in my opinion. some people are more sensitive to spicy and things like pepper flakes should NEVER not be disclosed. loved the hearth bread service and our waitress, for the most part, was lovely. we will try again.
Extraordinary service, food, drinks (made to order by Kevin!). Always above in everything. Will be back ASAP.
Great little restaurant. Loved the food and the staff was amazing.
This place Has wonderful food and the ambience is beautiful there woodfired pizza and especially their woodfired oysters are truly amazing
I have been here four times now and have never been disappointed. This dinner was with 11 co-workers and I mistakenly scheduled it for the wrong evening. The staff was very gracious and found room for us. Our party was given just the right amount of attention, food came out promptly and drinks were never empty. Did I mention that the food (especially the house-made pasta) was amazing? Thank you Orfeo!
Yet again, Kevin Davis (owner) and his team (At Orfeo this time) have provided a wonderful wine dinner. The Cedergreens were so delightful, friendly and informative. It was lovely to hear their story. KJ (ChefKevin) prepared superior dishes from the appetizers down to dessert. The wine pairings from Cedergreen that Bruce selected were perfect. Complimenting the cuisine and showing the best flavor profile of each wine. Micheal (new waiter) was great! He seemed to be every place at once and anticipated what was needed. We met several people we met at wine dinners before and the evening was filled with fun and learning about new wines and new experiences. We cannot wait to enjoy our wines and to attend the next wine dinner
