“So good we went twice!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We loved our meal at Orso restaurant, we just happened to walk past and got a table late one night (8pm). The food was outstanding, especially the Monkfish which was cooked to perfection. I loved the rustic style Italian bread and the the garlic and rosemary pizza bread. Our party of four had a great experience, the waiter was fantastic and very very helpful with all our special requests, in fact we enjoyed our meals so much we book for another night during our NYC trip. Highly recommended.

“Perfect location! Great Food!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Orso is located right by the theaters and it is a perfect spot for a meal before going to a show. From the moment we walked in the door the service was excellent. Waiters were attentive and quick to get us seated. On top of all that all the food was delicious. I have to recommend the artichoke appetizer!

“Great food, good price, bad service”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Food was good and tasted fresh, i recommend the gnocchi. Our waiter asked if we wanted bread for the table, but then never brought it. He never once checked on us after we got our food and never came back at all. After waiting 20 minutes we had to ask another server for our check and to run our credit card since our waiter never came back after delivering the food! Im honestly not sure if he left or completely forgot about us but it wasn't very busy when we were there and i don't think he even had any other tables.

“Great option next Broadway Theater District”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

This was the second time I've to Orso. We arrived there after Wicked, and there was no place to seat. The restaurant was full and without any available table. We waited for 10 minutes, the phone rang and someone canceled a reservation. The staff was very nice weigh us. After we sat, we ordered an amazing octopus starter. I don't really remember what was the main course, although I remember it was delicious. It's not an expensive restaurant...I guess we paid a hundred dollars for two people (two starters, two main dishes, without alcohol).
