  1. Hi there,

    I ate here back in October during a business conference. I truly enjoyed the food. Before we were seated, the servers were walking around with hor d'ouvres. Once seated, our first course was steamed mussels, which were amazing. The main course I chose was the Horseradish crusted Atlantic Salmon with potato puree, over a bed of sautéed spinach and a tomato froth. The salmon was wonderful, cooked to perfection and the sides went great with the dish. I'm pretty sure I cleaned my plate on that one. Others had the Moroccan-Braised Lamb Shank, which looked and smelled wonderful. Those who had it said they enjoyed. The third entrée was Roasted Breast of Capon, which looked good as well, but all in all, it was just breast of capon. Nothing exotic. Dessert was a wonderful chocolatey concoction which I'm not exactly sure of, but I know I was only able to eat half of it as it was too rich for me. We also got a wonderful ice wine that was great with dessert.

    Overall, I loved my experience there. If you're going for a company event, then you'll probably be on the second floor, which is where we were. Nicely decorated, very muted and subdued. The service was attentive and friendly. Classy all the way. Don't wear jeans, whatever you do! :)

    ps Man, I wished I worked for your company! LOL!

    1. ORO is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. They have great food and good service. They are one of the few restaurants in the city to have several types of risotto on the menu, and they are always properly creamy. Their desserts are yummy too. Should be a nice dinner.
