    We ordered the vegetable side dishes. The server bluntly told us you were out of the moussaka ravioli. My husband ordered a Sanes from the Wine menu. And the server came back with a bottle of county without explaining why. She just told us that that was the only bottle of Sangiovese. My husband did not know that the Sangiovese is in the Chianti .  She could’ve explained sorry we don’t have the Sandra, but the Chianti has Sanza in it. We left with a bad feeling .  the brussels sprouts, and the broccolini were amazing.

    Some colleagues and I gathered at Ornos after a leadership meeting and it was incredible in so many ways. We ordered what most would call an excessive amount, but no one regrets anything. Highlights included the petrale sole, Baklava sundae, saganaki, Greek salad, calamari, and tzatziki. These are all must orders if you go with a group. The wine, cocktails and service were also exceptional. This is great spot for dates, meeting up with close friends and work dinners.

    My water bottle had a chip at the opening. We arrived 5 minutes early and weren’t seated for another 30 mins. We were sat by the door. The waiter didn’t already know that we ordered the prefixe menu.

    As new parents w a toddler we often struggle to find nicer places we want to go eat, that can accommodate children. Michael Mina’s team was so welcoming, friendly, and accommodating, they even had a high chair and kids menu! Every dish we ordered was delicious. We will be back!

    we’d just had a slow cooked octopus a few days earlier that had blown our minds so we were reluctant to try another place’s but given the reputation, we went for it and it absolutely did not disappoint. amazingly tender and well paired with the cannellini beans and a vinaigrette. calamari was similarly excellent - not heavy though fried and accompanied by a saffron aioli that was luscious and so tasty. lamb chops were gilding the lily after all the small plates but i’m so glad we decided to order them. perfectly pink and so tender and flavorful, seasoned just right. this place is an understated gem in the financial district that probably doesn’t get enough traffic. only downside was that service was slow so we had to shovel down the tableside baklava sundae, which otherwise would have been a decadent and wonderful end to the meal.

    We chose this Estiatorio Ornos for a friend's special birthday event. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is very attentive, we never felt rushed and they did an amazing job of spacing the dishes. A wonderful place for a special occasion or to treat that special someone in your life. Bonus Tip - Order the Baklava Sundae!

    Did their Thanksgiving dinner with family. Short version: great food but they oversold and under delivered. Service was so slow that we were there 30 minutes before we had drinks and to get the check had to ask a busboy to help. 3.5 hour meal could have been 2 hours. But the food was amazing-turkey perfectly cooked and sides all tasty. The tuna tartar upgrade was awesome. Wine pairings were all excellent too. Dessert was the only food low point-no one liked the semolina cake thing, dry and tasteless. Beautiful restaurant with super comfy seating.

    Food is good. We tasted several dishes, and the portions were not too big so we were not too full afterwards. The service is good and attentive. If there is anything, I would say they came over too often to ask if we are finished with the food while we are still working on it, so it makes us feels like we should wrap up and leave earlier.

    Service was poor and not attentive, some food was outstanding, but the fish and lamb while perfectly cook was just seasoned with salt and pepper not very upscale. The lemon dessert was one of the highlights but rice pudding not upscale enough for a restaurant of this level. The $50 corkage is a bit high. Would not go back

    This was one of the most disappointing dining experiences I’ve suffered through in a very long time. The restaurant felt incredibly corporate with a table of at least 20 people running down the middle, making it impossible to have any conversation at our table. Service was fine, but not at the level to be expected at a fine dining restaurant. The table of 20 departed and was cleared loudly while ours sat ready to be cleared for a long time till I could asked someone to please take our plates. The food was fine, but drenched in oil that didn’t taste like the highest quality olive oil yet it was the only thing I could taste on my fish. I am not one to complain about restaurants, but this was super bad and embarrassing as we were entertaining someone from Hong Kong. If the goal is to book large parties and corporate business, then that was achieved. However, for people who just want to have a nice dinner with a good conversation and food, it was not, sadly.

    My friend and I dined at Ornos on Thusday evening. We were looking forward to having a great experience as it's a Michael Mina restaurant. Sadly, this wasn't the case. First, our server. Although he was nice, it was very apparent he didn't have the experience. He didn't know which side to place eating utensils. We had to show him how. Second, we ordered two appetizers and two entrees. The appetizers came quickly and they were tasty. But, before we could finish our appetizers, the entrees arrived. Now, this is where things became even more disorganized. He brought different dining plates and utensils and was confused whether to take away the appetizers plates et al. We ended up having both sets on a small table. For entrees, we ordered the petrale sole and roasted lemon chicken: 1) the sole was over fried, leaving it oily and no taste. It looked and tasted like bar food. 2) The roasted chicken was also over fried, leaving it super dry and rubbery. Because of this disappointment, I wouldn't recommend it to friends or revisit it again.

    We were seated in the corner and waited 30 minutes. The server never came to our table, although she took the order to the table left of us. We asked the water server, another waiter, and the receptionist for help, but unfortunately no one ever came. This was the worst service we have had in a very long time, and I’m shocked that it would be representative of a Michael Mina restaurant.
