We went to Orsa and Winston to celebrate a birthday, and it was a great treat! Service was incredible, second only to the food where every dish was flavorful and delicious. There was an abundance of surprise dishes in addition to our tasting menu that really made our dinner delightful and memorable.

We drove from the west side, and we would recommend the trip to anyone looking for a delicious meal and great experience.

Unfortunately we were disappointed with Orsa and winston. I’d been looking forward to going for a long time but the food was very underwhelming especially for the price. Food was all just a bit disconnected and I expected more than berries and mascarpone for a Michelin star dessert. The service was great although “service charge” that didn’t include gratituity was confusing.

Wonderfully curated fantasy of modern cuisine masterpieces. Wonderful mixture of salt and sweet, neutral and creamy flavors, expertly paired with a sublime selection of wines, including a sour beer the night we were there. Highly reccomend to anyone up for a beautiful dining adventure.

O&W is in my top 5 in LA. The food is delicious, almost delicate and very well balanced. Their risotto is to die for and their service very charming & friendly. The five course tasting is supplemented with an additional five tastings/courses they call “gifts from the kitchen.” It ranges from a unusual, but good, corn soup w nectarine & roe to a superb fried soft-shell crab. All told, sans beverage, it’ll be just under $200/person. Nearby parking lots available for approx $12. Front-of-house & kitchen staff are top notch. Go for the satsuki rice/risotto!

Loved celebrating my husband’s birthday at Orsa & Winston. The components of each dish were obviously carefully selected and combined in such an interesting way. I really liked that the flavors weren't overwhelming but still distinct. Everyone there was very friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. The wine pairing was great. We sat at the chef’s counter and enjoyed watching the dishes being created and plated. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

Love the rice - I can taste layers of flavors and the mixture of textures are fantastic. The reason for the four star is the duck breast - I’ve had better duck in normal restaurants in Chinatown. The overall experience was good, service was stunning. I’d like to come back and try different menus.

Wonderful service and unique cuisine experience. Interesting fusion of Japanese and Italian cuisines. Didn't try any wine but the beer selection was unique. I highly recommend the Stillwater Sake Saison and Rosee d'Hibiscus Spiced Wheat Ale. Light, smaller plate setting of 5 courses but there were complimentary amuse bouche, palate cleansers, and housemade bread dishes that definitely filled us up.

Quiet, dim, intimate ambiance made for smaller (2-4 person) parties. Great place for date nights and there were multiple birthday celebrations. Highly recommend sitting at the counter and watching the chefs work their magic.

What a great experience! I somehow got lucky and found a reservation for a last minute date night. It was our first “Michelin star” dining experience and it did not disappoint. The space itself is laidback with soft lighting. Music selection was a vibe I enjoyed the eclectic Japanese tunes.

All the dishes complimented each other and flowed out perfectly. I’m vegan and they were able to accommodate without me having to sacrifice flavor. Service was attentive. We enjoyed a bottle of Sake and left satisfied. Already trying to book again.
