The manager was very accommodating and the staff was
Lovely. Loved the experience
Very nice experience. The calamari was the best I have ever tried!
Food was average but a bit pricy. The decorations are good.
Everything was perfect except for the reception my daughter received when she arrived with an infant and a toddler. Please advise your hosts to be more respectful of ppl with children.
Had a great dinner however we were basically on top of the tables next to us. If your wanted to be distanced a bit from others this isn’t the restaurant for you.
Delicious food and wine. Highly recommend
Ambiance energy food selections everything was wonderful
The Bruccheta was disappointing. Not enough meet and the cream was not very tasty. The pizzas were good but was lacking a little more garniture.
There was some mix-up with our order last night but the new manager and her staff fixed this in an extremely generous fashion. We felt taken care of in a very unique way that I have not experienced in other restaurants.
Overall Oretta has fantastic food, is a beautiful space and the noise level (it is a busy place) adds to its charming atmosphere. Reminds me of the Cafe Houses in Vienna.
Amazing service and staff. Great food, great management. Reasonable prices, fun vibe.
Great deals for happy hour drinks and finger food!
Amazing food and service! It has such a nice vibe. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and requested they bring a happy birthday celebration with dessert and they did exactly that without me having to remind them.
We ate out of the cheese bowl .. soooo good
Nice ambiance and excellent food. Very small portions and slow service. Oretta is very expensive, and overall experience did not match up to the price.
Best happy hour downtown. Great ambiance and service
Great spot with a nice vibe!! Food is always great! This was my first time trying brunch and I will definitely be back soon!
Beautiful decor and amazing Italian food! The service was wonderful and they let us sit in the restaurant long after we had finished our meal as well.
Great experience. Understanding about travel delays with the first snow.
The restaurant was beautiful. Been wanting to come here for a while and happy I did. Didn’t realize the mimosas were no longer bottomless so I was disappointed about that. Didn’t feel I got my moneys worth for that reason. But our server was very patient with us and polite. It was a great first experience
Cecilia was wonderful at looking after us during our first but definitely no our last visit to Oretta King!
It was a good experience. Caesar salad was small ( by our standards)
Tables are way too close together to be comfortable with Covid.
absolutely loved my server! I want to return just for him
Dave and the others were very polite. Ensured our waters were topped up and that the food was up to their standard. The avocado toast was delicious however, it could’ve been better with a-bit of spice (sriracha). The value was pretty good for what you get, would recommend for a nice brunch.
Great vibe, Esthetics is on point and Espresso Martini is amazing
Great food great Service
Pasta was too salty, calamari was rubbery and in seasoned,
The salmon appetizer & drinks were excellent although the pork main could’ve been better. I’d try again though the ambiance was nice:)
Great place to have brunch. The server was so friendly and catered to toddlers!
Great experience! Oretta team was very accommodating with our request for additional guests last minute. Amazing service and unique brunch menu. Will be back! :)
The food, drinks and coffee are delicious! The server was incredible. The place was packed and I never once felt like I needed to call my waiter’s attention because she was always making sure we were okay. The locale is gorgeous and everything was tasty! I do recommend you make a reservation beforehand because it tends to be full.
The food was good but
The service wasn’t the greatest.
So much fun. Beautiful space, great energy, and perfect service. Food is exactly what you want from a beautiful Italian place. Wines are generally too young, but the cocktails are perfect.
We’ve enjoyed Aperetivo hours at Oretta a few times now. The service is always amazing, and everyone on staff are so nice and welcoming. Plus, I love the outfits the women wear. Very cute! The food and drinks are always wonderful, and such a great deal! I tried a Negroni Bianco last night, and it was delicious! I’ve recommended to many friends that they check it out!
My experience at Oretta was under my expectation. I was not impressed at all with the food !we ordered Bruschetta , Risotto and Octopus and sea bass. The bruschetta was not bad, the risotto was super oily and tasteless and the octopus was not tender and cold, the sea bass was ok.
Service was great the waitress was super kind! And the food was amazing. Will be coming back
I do not usually leave reviews, but this is well needed. Oretta was incredible, from the atmosphere, to the wine selection, to the FOOD! 10/10 will definitely be dining here again.
Waited at the Bar so my 1:45 min max stay didn't start. Ridiculous meant for 20 and 30 somethings
Love this spot! A new favourite!
Our experience was lovely. Everything was so delicious and our waiter did an excellent job. The food came out quick and the portions were pretty large. I would say with the ambiance and everything this is definitely going to become one of my favorites!
