This is our third time at Orienta. We’ve tried different items off the menu each time but also did some re-dos such as the lobster poppers. It’s fresh Asian fusion cuisine. The balance is impeccable. The vibe is really nice. The service is great. The host Steve works his butt off.

This was our first time dining here. The food was amazing. You must try the lobster shooters. Perfect for a date or a dinner with friends.

As usual we had a fabulous meal at Orienta... at this point I go there usually once a month and it never disappoints, everything on the menu is fabulous and so is the service along with the ambience! I have also started frequenting another new restaurant in Stamford and have to say that it was such a nice surprise for them to buy myself and the rest of my party (there were 4 of us) a drink in appreciation of me going there often, and also writing great reviews. It really doesn't cost the restaurant much since there is a huge mark up in drinks and really appreciated... just a thought as it was something that when we got the check we all said what a simple and not expensive way to show how appreciative they were for our business!! I just thought I would mention it to you for something to consider for "frequent flyers" to do maybe once a yr or every so many times that someone comes in!

We have been regulars at all three restaurants under Orienta’s ownership. We have always enjoyed Orienta. But we always ate there on Fridays and Saturdays. The drop off in quality on Sunday of both the food and service was quite surprising. Of course the prices didn’t change. I have never eaten food that over salted. The service was terrible as well. The manager was very nice, trying to make amends. But a free drink didn’t make up for the experience.

Did not appreciate ageist comments by bar man to fellow staff member about people sitting at the bar. Heard on being seated “well that takes it to 475, when it gets to 1,000, I’m out of here”.

Our first experience here was outdoors and lovely. This time we ate indoors and although the food was good, our dining experience for four felt very rushed. There were also lots is small fruit flies around us all night which we spent swatting away. It was extremely uncomfortable.

Still a favorite restaurant of ours in the area after going there at least 1/2 a dozen times in 2021... It was also a nice surprise to see that they added a few new items to their menu, not that the menu lacked anything because there has always been so many great choices, but it's always nice to have some new ones... although it's hard to decide what to have when I'm there since everything on the menu that I've had has been outstanding, and everything on the menu that I haven't tried sounds delicious!!

Food was so delicious! Two words... lobster shooters!!! Pistachio salmon, tuna sashimi and chocolate panna cotta all scrumptious. We ate outside which was really nice and our waiter was excellent. Only slight negative was that it was a bit too "energetic" outside but worth it to be able to dine safely during Covid. Will definitely be returning.

What a pleasant surprise this restaurant was! We had TWO orders of the lobster shooters, they were that good. I really loved the salmon with the black rice entrée. Appreciated the complimentary glass of plum wine with the delicious tapioca pudding dessert as well. Wonderful experience all around.

We’ve come to Orienta many times, this recent visit was not so good. Sitting outside in the tented area was so loud we could barely hear each other speak. And the servers could hear either, because they brought us pork dumplings instead of vegetable dumplings. I was upset to bite into one and realize the mixup-I don’t eat meat. One of our diner’s steak was barely medium rare, and certainly not the requested medium. Another in our party had a Pad Thai that was average. The lobster shooters and drinks were good, but the expensive meal was overall a dud. I may come back, but only inside where I can hear, and with careful instruction about preparation.
