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.

I've been a long time lover of Le Penguin. So I'm embarrassed that I just realized this is their expression of French and Vietnamese. And I can't believe I've been missing out. The cocktails were well done, variety in starters and wonderful main courses (Cod was superb)! Sat at the bar and was walked through the menu along with perfect wine pairings. If you're in the mood for French cuisine but want something different with an Asian twist then rush to Orienta.

Orienta is a restaurant in Greenwich that we dine at often. From the minute you arrive Kate, the hostess & manager, is welcoming and this graciousness continues through the excellent service staff. The food is consistently superb with Adrien Blech as a world traveled, skilled chef at the helm. We cannot recommend Orienta enough every chance we get!

I had high expectations for this place and their menu for 'French / Asian' fusion.

Cute decor, nice vibe, and great cocktails but the food was a bland interpretation
for what was on offer as a 'French / Asian' fusion.

My Wife and I always enjoy our night out at Orienta. The friendly staff at the front door always starts off the evening on a positive note. Ricardo behind the bar serving us is always another positive addition to our date night. The Chef hits the mark every time. We look forward to many more meals at a great Greenwich Restaurant.

Orienta is a fabulous restaurant. Our dinner with Orienta rainbow salad and pistachio crusted salmon with bok Choy & ginger, purple sticky rice & sesame glaze was perfectly prepared. Judging by the diners filling every eat happily eating, I can see that Orienta in Greenwich is a well deserved huge success.

We had a wonderful experience at Orienta last night. We were greeted by a lovely hostess and seated in their outside space. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and offered wonderful advice when we had questions about the menu. The food was so delicious. We can’t wait to go back. We had a fantastic meal.
