Orso - NYC
Great place for after-theater dinner. Open late, but food still carefully prepared and well served. Nice atmosphere and hospitality.
The food was wonderful. Everyone in our party loved what they had. My friend and I had the calf's liver, and we both agreed it was the best we'd ever had. The service was terrific, attentive without being overbearing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a wonderful pre-theater meal.
Orso is a lovely Theater District standby. I hadn't been in many years, but the food and ambience have held up. The service was lovely, attentive, but not intrusive.
Food was delicious and service met our needs before the theatre. We would come here again.
We come here for the liver and onion dinner, which is outstanding and hard to find these days. We haven't tried any of the other food.
Salad was terrific. Orichiette was so so.
Generous, particularly friendly, accommodating staff. Great food and service. Nice ambience.
No Pizza during renovations.
The portions are plentiful but the quality is average.
Pretty good for preheater
The kitchen wasn’t in full operation. Usually Orso is much better
Orso has clearly declined in service and quality of food. Disappointing dining experience at an old theater district favorite.
Orso is our go to restaurant after the theater, service was very pleasant, food good, not outstanding, tables are a little crowded, close together, I was sitting on the gentleman's crossed leg next to me...
The menu was shortened due to some utility work ongoing.
Always enjoyable however...
Great for a dinner where you want to catch up with a friend - food was great.
No estuvo a la altura esperada ni de lejos. Esperabamos algo mejor.
Great before Broadway show
Perfect in every way.
The food is delicious and, while our time was spent with quite a few chatty matinee minded ladies, we had a lovely time. Many thanks,
Great food and service!
This place exists because of convenience factor to theatres and after theatre service. not great but servicable. a bit tired .
Delicious dishes. Risotto & Salad of Radicchio, Walnuts & Goat Cheese were excellent. Wait staff was quick, friendly but not overbearing. I had mentioned we were celebrating my friends’ birthdays and we were surprised to receive an extra dish of ice cream with a candle & a song! What a nice touch. The colorful ceramic plates add brightness to the table settings. I highly recommend Orso!
Orso is a class act. The service, food and ambience are just perfect.
Our third visit. Had a great experience each time. Will plan to dine at orso every time we are in NYC.
Even though it is a very limited menu, each item was very fresh and delicious!
Reliably good food and service, both at lunch and dinner. Perfect for pre-theatre.
food and service impeccable
the only stylish place for pre or post-theatre dinner
On the positive side the location is great pre theater, the waiter was very attentive and our table was nicely situated.
My family enjoyed the tuna part of the tartare appetizer but found the endive off putting. The prosciutto and melon on mine were both delicious but not nearly enough melon for me.
The gnocchi and steak entrees were tasty, one steak was perfectly medium rare, the other was too rare to be called medium but the waiter saw that immediately and offered to take it back, it was eaten and enjoyed as it was. The shrimp entree needed more on the plate, my son was still hungry. Actually I think all the plates could have had more garnish/sides on them, and my branzino was cooked perfectly but swimming in butter.
I think it wouldn’t have taken much to make it all a bit better but the service was great and we arrived at the theater in plenty of time.
I love Orso! Have been here many times and once again the food, service, and overall experience did not disappoint! The white bean dip and bread started our meal. It was very yummy. I had the mixed greens and skirt steak with a side of spinach all delicious. The homemade tartufo for dessert was sooo good. I always recommend Orso
Always special. Temporarily a reduced menu due to a caught-immediately gas leak. Try now but be sure to return when the restaurant is back to normal.
orso is consistently wonderful.
This is my favorite restaurant - and I tried to say why when your survey app died. I cannot repeat everything except to say the service, food, and ambiance are elegant and exceptional. Let's see if this review goes through this time....
Great, iconic Broadway favorite. Very good, great value, reliable.
Food delicious, staff attentive and cordial.
After many outstanding meals at Orso this one was a disappointment. The service was distracted - how hard can it be to remember who wants sparkling water and who wants tap; or to then bring the tap water to those who want it without being asked a second time. The food we ordered was good (the calves liver is still excellent) but the menu was very limited. Afterward I wondered if something had happened to limit the capabilities of the kitchen and tried to check that out online but found nothing to explain why so many of our favorite dishes were MIA.
As always Orso did not disappoint! The food was outstanding and the chef, Victor continues to wow us with his creative dishes. We enjoyed the charcuterie platter with so many outstanding choices! The wine was perfectly matched to the sausage pasta and the wait staff was very attentive. Kevin is a great host and we appreciate all that Orso does to make our dining experience a great one!
Perfect, as always.
Excellent food. I ate an excellent Caprese and the some delicious pasta. My wife and mother-in-law also appreciated a lot. Every time I go there it is better than the previous time.
No pizza on the menu😩
The gas line was broken. They were unable to prepare many dishes. I think the restaurant should notify customers.
It started to go sour when I asked for bread, the server brought the bread and when I asked for a plate she said they don’t have any, but We could make a mess on the tablecloth and she will clean it up. My friend’s steak was dry and my octopus was cold and rubbery.
Not a good experience....food was at best mediocre....service was at best below standard.....thy just did not get it
I have been coming to this Restaurant when visiting NYC for many years. Typically one of my favorites spots in the Theatre District. On this visit, the food offerings were extremely limited and what was offered not very good. We were told they were changing the kitchen in some form and were limiting their menu to few options. The problem was the few options offered were of poor quality and taste. Given the options, it should have come at a reduced price as well given the quality was reduced at least in half.
