Great time with my family at Oro!!! I Have been a local of queens plaza and Oro never fails. Great food, beautiful decor and friendly service. Mike ( one of the owners) is a second generation restauranteur who told us his family story and is one of the friendliest and cordial people I have ever met. His father has been in the business for 30 years and praises him for everything he has taught him to help him succeed and keep there family legacy. Amazing father / son team... food , service and experience is overall 5 stars!!

Food and service was great. Best part of the restaurant was space between tables. Actually had privacy to talk without the patrons aside us listening to everything. Great find in queens plaza

Took a business group in for dinner. We were staying at a hotel near by, and did not want to travel far. Service was very good and attentive. The value of the meal was fair. But the food itself was good, just not memorable. We did have a good time. I will go back if i need a place close to the hotel again. But there are so many better restaurants in the Long Island City area to try. If you are looking for a solid italian dining experience this is a good choice. But if you are looking for something to wow your group try some other locations in and around Long Island City.

Expensive for industrial pasta and overcooked... As italian I can tell you that it is not the way to cook in an italian restaurant. Also overpriced and almost empty a saturday night... A shame for the italian food.

We made reservations and even though they were early for a Friday night in the city, we arrived to zero tables. I was concerned about this actually. Our waiter was spot on as was the bartender who was on our table too. Another 2 top and a 5 came in, but that was it. The food was on point. Filet was large and cooked perfect. We actually had 2, 1/2 portions of entrees for appetizers and they were both very good. My chicken Parm was nice, and our son had another chicken dish that was very good. Service was perfect all night. Still not sure why they were empty when we left around 7, but it shouldn’t be.

Un vrai restaurant italien, avec une cuisine de qualité et une amabilité du personnel. Les plats étaient bons même si je n'ai pas aimé le mien par goût. On m'a proposé de le changer pour un autre plat, j'ai trouvé ce geste correct même si je n'ai rien pris d'autre. Le plus aussi sur les plats de pâtes ils proposent 2 possibilités un petite portion half (qui reste généreuse si on prend une entrée voire un dessert) et selon si on est un gros mangeur ou juste prendre un plat alors prendre la portion normale. Rapport qualité-prix on est dans une fourchette moyenne haute mais la qualité est là... sans hésiter, je recommande ce restaurant.

ugh! dinner for 2- bill came out to be over $100. totally not worth the $$$ spent. crunchy calamari appetizer was literally a hand full in a cup for $17! chicken dishes I would call it pizzeria style spread across a big plate. $100 later I’m still hungry! I guess we are paying for his high rent.

Where do I start... I celebrated my 2 year anniversary with my wife at Oro and had a phenomenal evening. I ordered oysters to start and were amazing, tomahawk ribeye for entree and cheesecake for dessert. All my selections were very good and priced fair. Thank you for a great evening Oro management team!

Great time with a group of 7 of my old friends from college. I live a few blocks away and have been dining at Oro for the last 6 months. They always deliver and make it a great experience ! Thank you to Mike who always recognizes me and makes sure to give a personal touch. I’ve never met an owner that can remember food and drink preferences. Can’t wait to come back!

Just moved into LIC from midtown. Food was amazing and restaurant is beautiful. Really a hidden gem... oysters were to die for. My favorite was the lamb chops but I tasted my friends home made pasta was just as great!

Quiet evening and looking for place near hotel -- Oro fit the bill. Wife had chicken marsala and enjoyed it and I had black linguini and seafood which was good. New waiter was attentive but not over bearing. Prices were reasonable for NYC.

I know the food is important but for me without great service the food is just the food. I loved the sevice!!! Attentive, not aggressive and gave us a minute to think but not 20 minutes to start flagging them down. It was no surprise that the fish was fresh the steak tasty/juicy and the dessert was just enough. A class act. I can't wait to return back for those $1 happy hour oysters

Service was great. Friendly staff. Menu selection was good too.

Very disappointed with quality/taste of food. I had the hot seafood appetizer; small quantity for the price. My wife had the pizza, she ate one slice/said it was not good.

We go out to eat food and we did not enjoy the quality.

Place was quieter than usual bc of the holidays but still a great time! We decided to eat at the bar and the service was amazing. A waiter came over immediately to read us the specials. The meatballs and arrancini are a must try. Food could've been a little hotter but nothing to be mad about. Tried a few of the cocktails and they were all deliciously well made, especially the diablo. Bar area is spacious. Dining area is beautiful. All of the staff was friendly. Wish I could remember the bartender's name bc he really made for a great experience. Will def be back.

Not worth the money. Service was bad and the food was sub-par at best (not authentic Italian). The waitstaff was not attentive and our food took a long time to come out.
