Very good waiter and good food 9/2/2008

Our waiter Michael was friendly, courteous and very helpful in answering questions regarding items listed on the menu. He helped make the evening an enjoyable one. We ordered the risotto with fish. The risotto was done perfectly--firm to the taste--not soft or starchy. The fish was moist and tasty. A little pricey but certainly worth a visit. Pros: Service and food Cons: pricey more

Overpriced with attitude! 12/10/2005

From the minute we walked into the restaurant we received nothing but an obnoxious attitude from the staff. The food choices were limited - only one type of soup available. If you enjoy eating like a pig, this is the place for you. We asked for bread plates when the bread was brought to the table and the server's response was ""management has decided not to offer bread plates."" What??? The food was mediocre and overpriced. You could do so much better with your money. Not recommended! Cons: Attitude, Overpriced, No bread plates! more

Wonderful 12/28/2003

My boyfriend took me after a matinee, and we had the most wonderful time. Reservations should be made well in advance because it is small, but it is definately worth it. Romantic atmosphere and fantastic food. My boyfriend had the most delicious pizza ever. Pros: Not rushed more

Don't need this attitude! 10/8/2003

Ditto to heidipeterson! I think we had the same server. Food was so-so...we were hesitate whether we needed to pour our own wine since that was ""new"" to us. The host and our server had attitude problems and I was tempted to give them no tip! I don't see any reason to go there when there are so many other options in the city. more

Terrible Service! 7/16/2003

Our server at Orso was a pretentious jerk! He seemed irritated with us from the start, and never smiled once. He came across as being very snotty. However, I am not sure why, considering the fact that he had a pencil behind his ear and dressed very casually, you would think we would have been at a Dennys. We also had to poor our own wine, and once the food finally came, he never checked on us once! They had a place on the check for a ""Captains"" tip, which seemed ridiculous because this was not a very fancy restaurant. The fact that there are plenty of wonderful restaurants in New York City to choose from, you would think they would try harder to please their customers I wouldn't waste your money here. Cons: Expensive, Poor Service more

So full of themselves 12/19/2002

Noisy, limited menu, poor winelist, no decor- and difficult to get a reservation. Orso must do a big business with first-time customers. My first and LAST visit included a waiter telling me ""We're casual- pour your own wine"" and then handing me a check with a place for the ""Captain's"" tip. There is nothing about Orso that would give you a reason to try it. Cons: EXPENSIVE, Poor menu, poor service more

Overrated 9/23/2002

Reservations are needed weeks in advance- for what I wonder? The food was okay, nothing outstanding, but fine for the price. The service is another story. We had probably the most obnoxious waiter in all NY. When I questioned him about our wine choice he actually criticized me for not knowing the difference between the type and the region.When he brought the bottle to the table, he placed it in the center without pouring a glass and walked away. Pros: location Cons: service more

Totally fabulous! 8/9/2002

The food and service were wonderful. My mushroom ravioli in nutmeg cream sauce was perfect -- exactly the right touch of nutmeg. My dinner companions also enjoyed their chicken and veal dishes. Since they change their menu daily, based on what's good at the market, the mushroom ravioi was not on the menu on my next visit but the food was just as good. I found the service to be friendly and attentive, without being obtrusive. When I returned a week after my first visit they remembered me and my guests. I will be sure to return every time I am in NYC. Pros: food is the star!, personal service, great peoplewatching Cons: bathrooms downstairs more
