The restaurant is much different than it was before. Food has changed and some items on the menu were no being offered. Service was good but could be a bit better considering there were only 3 tables of people at the restaurant. Food is so different, I miss the old chef.
Great ambiance, food, and wine list...the service was wonderful....a hidden gem in the Glebe
Food is always a treat. Wonderful kitchen
The good news is the Orto is a fine restaurant with excellent food, an extensive, well researched wine list, and well-informed and pleasant servers. The downside is its relative emptiness, which is strange given its high quality. Location may be a factor as it is around a corner and on a Glebe side street. Perhaps signage at the corner of Bank alerting people to its presence might help and an advertising campaign should be considered. it is too good a restaurant to fail because of a lack of clientele.
Great restaurant, great food, great service.
Great food, attentive waiter, high quality decor.
Excellent food, desserts are especially good! Pastry Chef on site!
Excellent service. Interesting wine selections, a nice change from the mainstream. Beautiful presentation and delicious dishes. Some dishes are on the small side so larger appetites be aware! Parking available beside or close to restaurant which is fabulous for a Glebe location.
Lovely dining experience. Great pastas.
Très beau restaurant, décoration zen. Excellente nourriture et cave à vin!
Lovely atmosphere, generous portions and well prepared food. We started with a beautiful charcuterie board followed by mains. Everyone was very happy with their meal. One comment regarding an inexperienced server who was not familiar with wine service etiquette or when it is appropriate to remove plates....perhaps just a personal pet peeve but clearing plates while someone is still enjoying their food is annoying and intrusive.
Service was attentive and wine list good. Cuisine aims high but falls a bit short. Pasta dish was good but portions small. Veal main had good flavour but should have been more tender. Tiramisu was excellent.
Delicious food in a lovely space. Excellent service too!
I really enjoyed my dinner at Orto with friends on Saturday evening. We had a truly delicious meal, the restaurant never got so noisy that you couldn't talk, the woman who brought us our drinks and food was lovely.....Altogether a very pleasant evening. Our friends had never been to Orto before and they were very impressed and said that they were eager to come back with all their grown-up kids!
One of the best Ottawa restaurants Highly recommended. Worth a few Michelin stars
Always loved this restaurant but our recent visit the food and presentation was excellent but the servers were very poor. The restaurant was only half full but the wait times were very long. This restaurant was always packed. This was a Saturday night. Something needs to change. The staff almost seemed to not be trained or filling in at the last minute for regular staff.
