    They refused to seat us because they said that Open Table was not working and they didn’t have a table for 8. It was a clear lie because there was a party of 3 sitting at the only big table so they just gave it away. Extremely rude and dismissive

    Horrible experience, we had a reservation for 10 at 10:30 am for the breakfast buffet for a birthday celebration, we arrive to discover they had taken the buffet down and that it ends at 10:30. They then state they do not use OpenTable and had no reservation for us. At $20 a head you would of thought they would have welcomed the business. So our birthday celebration was ruined and at the last minute we had to find a place to host 10 people on a Sunday for brunch which was impossible. In addition all of the parties had to pay $20 to park at nearby lots that they lost out on, it was just a horrible experience, Make sure to call the place to confirm personally that they have your reservation, the email and text messages from OpenTable is not a guarantee anymore.

    Awful service. Took over half an hour just to get drinks when we were the only ones in the restaurant. Food wasn’t great. Steak was barely seasoned. Extremely overpriced. Drinks were strong which was the only thing that made this place tolerable.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, I had the rib-eye, and it was well prepared and tasted wonderful. The mushrooms that accompanied it were to die for. I was somewhat disappointed at the limited selection on the menu, but otherwise, I will probably dine there again.

    The bar and seating area is right next to each other and the ambiance of the fine dining area is overshadowed by the bar crowd eating burger drinking beer and watching sports on the tv.

    We were staying at The Emily Morgan and decided to stay in one night for dinner. We had enjoyed breakfast on other days and even happy hour at the bar one day. Since we had been satisfied with those experiences, we wanted to try dinner. The food was very good and portions were generous. We were a little disappointed that they didn't have any prosciutto for one of their dishes but they informed us and gave us the opportunity to change our order or approve a substitution. Our server was wonderful as well. Even if you are not staying at the EM, it is conveniently located directly across the street from The Alamo and you won't be disappointed making the trip.

    This hotel restaurant is a hidden gem. It was relatively empty on Sunday before Labor Day, which was a shame because the food was excellent. I had the Chile Crusted Filet. Cooked to a perfect medium rare and the accompanying sides were great as well and went beyond the standard fare . My wife devoured her Scottish Salmon a rare event for a tiny eater. She also enjoyed her accompanying sides.

    Showed up for our reservation a few minutes early. The place was empty. I found out why very quickly. We were informed by the waiter that the menu would be “limited” this month. That was an understatement. I could have gotten the same meal from a Subway or Jimmy Johns. This was a classic bait and switch. They should at least have the honesty to let you know that you won’t be getting the menu you see on the internet or on Open Table. There was ample opportunity since we had to confirm and then reconfirm our reservation a few days in advance. If you decide to go to dinner here, call first to make sure they at least have a full menu available.

    Staff were very good. The foods were typical as served anywhere, Average for a higher price. Missed the condiments to fit food served. Ketchup with shrimp. Proper spices not used. The deserts were very good. The tenderloin was prepared satisfactorily. Fish tough, Chicken was soaked in chili sauce and not tender

    The Christmas Day buffet at Oro was not our first choice, based on lack of familiarity and price, but we decided to give it try. Making the reservation was easy, and we were seated immediately on arrival. We were seated at a booth, which was very low and soft, difficult to enter and exit. It was our mistake not to ask for a different seating. The setup for the buffet was very awkward, and plates, bowls, etc., were not placed conveniently to the different food stations. Most of the food items were tasty but were not always at proper serving temperatures. Some of the serving dishes had very heavy (separate) lids that were difficult to lift, and there was no place to set them while serving our plates. When we complained or asked for something specific, our server was very responsive, but there were things that we should not have had to ask for (i.e., serving dishes near the food stations). When our bill was presented, our server apologized for the inconveniences and stated that our bill was discounted due to those issues. We expressed our appreciation for the compensation and were reasonably satisfied with the outcome. However, we will not return to this restaurant. It is really too small to expect to be able to carry off a buffet of the quality that was advertised.

    Made reservation online with a special anniversary request but when we arrived for our reservation there wasn’t a table set up. It didn’t seem like they even knew we had a reservation. Our special anniversary request wasn’t met or even mentioned. Food was good and waitress service was good just disappointed with the online reservation process

    This was the worst venue I have possible ever been to. I specifically requested a table for 5 and confirmed this twice on the phone beforehand. On arrival I was given a booth for four people. Eventually we were moved to a table for 5 but very reluctantly and told they would need it back in 45 minutes. We then waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for our breakfast to arrive by which point we all had to leave. I was given the explanation only 1 chef was working. This was completely unacceptable and for anyone trying to use this restaurant for a business meeting I would firmly advise against it.

    Restaurant was very slow, but it was 5:00 on a Sunday. Ordered cocktails and Spinach Artichokes Dip. Cocktails served and dinner order taken. Dinner came out before appetizer . Explained that a kitchen mistake was made and would not be charged for appetizer. My question is it was so slow how could such a mustKe be made unless the kitchen crew was on break and never saw the appetizer. Dinner was good. Waiter was nice.

    I arrived at 7:55 for 8:00 reservations, waited along with 20+ other people for hostess who did not reappear until 8:10 to take our name. I asked how long until we would be seated, and she let me know that she could tell me in 15 minutes how long we would have to wait to be seated. We would have to wait until 8:30 to find out when we would be seated for an 8:00 reservation? We cancelled our reservation and left. We went to Morton’s and had an incredible meal.

    We had reservations for 8pm New Years Eve. We were not seated until after 9, and did not receive the check until close to 11:15. The poor waitstaff were severely understaffed, and although they did their best it was simply not enough. Most of our courses were cold, and overall it put a severe damper on our evening. Although there was a discount, it came on behalf of the waiter and not the hotel itself, and ultimately was little compensation. I will never come back.

    As trendy of a spot as this place may be my husband and I were very disappointed New Year's eve. The prime fixe menu choice selections were great, the problem was the overall presentation of the restaurant and food. My husband's quail and risotto plate wasn't good in flavor. I went with the lamb chops, which were DELICIOUS! The only problem was after such a long wait, during their not so busy time, we had a 6 o'clock reservation, my pureed squash was brought out cold. As if it was sitting plated before the chops were added. Such a disappointment considering the price paid. Earlier in the week we took our family over to Cappy's downtown, they are ALWAYS consistent in their quality of food and service, definitely worth EVERY penny!!
