My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time with their afternoon tea menu. Very elegant and tasty experience.
Amazing food and service!
Wow. The food as was amazing ! The decor was very nice and excellent service. Did not expect this gem to be in Richmond. Feels like a place that one can only find in downtown.
The desserts were amazing. I enjoyed the tea aswell as cakes very much
We ordered the afternoon tea set and the food are way too dry, especially the toast. And the waitress wasn’t even adding hot water to our tea when it’s totally empty.
We were recommended by freinds and the expereince certainly delivered. Wow! will be back again.
Enjoyed having lunch. The steak frites was a really big portion and very tender.
soup and coffee were lukewarm and mussels were too salty. staff were patient and courteous.
Great food, even better service.
Was a really nice restaurant and would highly recommend:)
We went for high tea, the food was great as well as service. What we think could of improve was two things:
1. Tea selection was quite limited, for something like afternoon tea. They had a bigger coffee selection then tea, though you had to pay extra. I would love to see more choices for sure.
2. Price was tad high side for amount of food. The food was fantastic but would of loved to have more. Similar to other places that does the same thing.
Overall good, will come back but those would be my improvement choices.
Great Food! specially for a French restaurant in Richmond
Great food great experience
Came for dinner tonight and what a great experience it was. There was a large group for a Bordeaux wine dinner happening in the restaurant but our service were attentive. Food was tasty and we also enjoyed the wine recommendation. Lovely lovely spot for a date. We'll be back soon.
While the food was excellent, it’s key to remember that dining out is about the overall experience, which Origo underwhelmed.
Upon arrival to an almost empty restaurant, they wanted to seat us in the back corner at a table by the waiter station and kitchen door. Absolutely no acceptable if place cannot fill tables and they give me the worst seat in the restaurant? I told the host I would not sit there so we did get a better table.
The ambiance is terribly lacking. The resaurant, at a 7:30pm seating on a Saturday evening was almost empty. No background chatter or clinking of cutlery on dishes. We had 4 or 5 waiters tripping over themselves to serve us, which is a major turn off.
Overall, the food was tasty. I’m not concerned about price if the food is good, but I’ve had equivalent meals at a much lower price point. Over-inflated prices and underwhelming ambiance/experience ensures I’ll never eat there again.
Also good to note is the restaurant is located in a construction zone with unfinished new buildings all around.
Service and food were extremely good !
The food tasted amazing but portions were small. Wide selection on the Wine list. Overall enjoyed the evening.
Great hidden gem in Richmond if you are in the mood for French Cuisine. I would say this is the best French restaurant in Richmond! Good selection of wine list apart from your everyday restaurant. The almond croissant looks great and tastes even better! We had one with our coffees and was a good pairing.
We heard that Origo Club was a place for fine dining. However, we found that it was more like a cafe with a bar other than a fine dining restaurant. The lunch was OK. The dessert and coffee were impressive. The sitting area was kind of odd (pretty crowded and the tables and chairs were definitely not for fine dining) but should be fine if you think of it as a cafe.
Ambience: Good. Place is relatively small so it feels cozy. Not overly quiet or loud.
Food: Some neat dishes. Well presented. Portion is relatively small.
Service: staffs are friendly and attentive.
Price: on the high side.
I’d give it 3.5 stars
Food was good, service was good. The only thing we were not satisfied was the coffee.
Handsdown the best French restaurant in town. The ambience was great with very friendly staff.
Everything is perfect❤️
Have been here many times for the excellent lunch items and the Pour Over Coffee prepped by Head Barista / Head Pastry Chef Remi Ho.
First time for the Afternoon Tea and will definitely come again . The sweet and savoury offerings really are Top Notch and the selection of tea also is. The service is $45 per person and is really quite reasonable for the quality . Staff is also friendly and attentive with special Kudos to Karen and Remi✌️👌.
All in all an excellent Afternoon Tea in a very Nice room.
I came here for Afternoon Tea and really enjoyed my experience! The service was warm and attentive, and the food was delicious. Their dessert offerings, in particular, are better than most high tea places I've been to. I got the oolong tea, and I liked how flavourful it was, even after a few pots. Definitely recommend this place for an amazing high tea experience!
i enjoyed my meal but have a few personal opinion about the food.
1. The oysters, i wish the pearls had more pop and tartness to it. Felt a little chewy and was hoping for a pop of citrus from it.
2.Boeuf tartar, i couldn't taste/crunch of the cornichon. It would have helped balance the dish more with more acidity.
3. The pomme frites were interesting, i felt if the inside was fluffier it would've gone much better with the clams and mussels. The insides were a bit waxy and soft for the dish.
The bar tender was super helpful and nice, i will totally come back just for the drinks.
Four of us walked in for lunch and it was very lovely. We were spoiled by the selection of their pastry and desserts you can pick from the display case. We will come back for dinner soon.
Great dinner experience. Fantastic wine selection and friendly service. Highly recommend this place for a date night.
The food was delicious, the service was perfect. I will come next time soon. Thank you.
Fabulous new restaurant in Richmond!
The entrees were outstanding!
Can’t wait to return!
What a treat! A true designation for foodies. The scallops and the duck were amazing. The sommelier recommeded a very special bottle of natural wine from Burgundy. Wow, it was soo good.
Overall it was an enjoyable experience. We were attracted by the liquor & coffee bar in the background. Drinks were very good non-alcoholic/cocktail/coffee. The menu was clean & simple and had the items I wanted at a French restaurant. Although overall the dishes were good but I still had better elsewhere (escargot, beef tartare, foie gras) especially the duck was a tad underwhelming tho the black rice made the dish interesting. Each dish can benefit at bit of tweaking.
Our server was knowledgeable and passionate, gave good recommendations and she made our dinning experience 5 stars!
It was busy when we came in for lunch but we had an excellent experience. My steak was done perfectly and the service was very attentive and friendly. I will try the dinner soon.
We were looking forward to trying out this unique Afternoon tea service. Good food, but everything was 2 bites or less. Service was spotty, considering there was plenty of staff and a nearly empty restaurant. I had to wave down the server to replenish the tea. We had a party of 3 and they decided it wasn’t worth their time to try and put all the food onto tea stands, or spend the time washing 2 tea stands. Our third person had their goodies spread over 2 plates (not very appealing) and he was also missing a savory. We told the server and they brought back 2 items to make up for it.
Eventho we went during afternoon tea time every one has to order one set of afternoon tea. However the server accommodate our special dietary restrictions. Service was excellent.
Great service !
I had tried the dinner before, food was great. This time I’m trying the afternoon tea set, which disappointed me a little. The savoury items are very limited, and the choices of tea are also very limited.
a gem in richmond. staff was very attentive and needless to say, the food was amazing.
It was way too noisy with DJ on site. We can’t really chat as they were blasting clubbing music at 2pm. Maybe try to play something softer if they decided to have DJ again.
Cozy modern french restaurant. The wine list and coffee program is the best in town.
Despite the table is a bit too closed each other. The high tea
