From the time our party of four entered Orsay to the time we departed, approximately two hours later, we were attended to our every food and wine interests and desires. Initially we took advantage of the cocktail hour appetizer prices ordering 1/2 price oysters and three other amazing offerings. One of the appetizers had to be reordered after receiving something we did not order. Later in the evening we enjoyed our entrees, even though two of them were slightly cooler than expected. The quality of every food item was exquisite. The quality of food is one of the primary reasons I enjoy coming to Orsay. Our server appeared to be inexperienced at times but clearly was very professional, courteous, and helpful with making good wine and food choices. Overall, I was extremely pleased with our experience which was in part to celebrate our oldest son's birthday.

We love the food at Orsay but I have never been seated in the bar area before. The metal chairs were incredibly uncomfortable and tilted back so we could never sit comfortably.

Our waiter was soft spoken so it was impossible to hear him and the lighting was like sitting in the dark.

When you make a reservation in advance you should be told this is where you will be seated. I would not have gone there on this evening for a $500 meal to sit in the bar area on metal chairs.

They sat us in the back area, away from the bar which was really nice. Our server, Tony, was fabulous- allowed us to take our time, took us through the menu since it was our first time there, and was attentive without being overbearing. Food was as exceptional as you’d hope it would be. I had scallops, my partner had the steak frites, and we shared a cheese and charcuterie board. Cocktails were also delicious!

As always, Orsay was fabulous. This was our first Saturday brunch, and the restaurant was full of birthday parties, baby showers, and bluehairs like us. Alexandra was our server, and she did everything right - she didn't hover, she was just solicitous enough, and she knew her food. Moules frites as good as Brussels, Benedict as good as Paris, coffee as good as Dunkin' Donuts. No squawks at all!
