An excellent choice...The menu was varied, usually fresh fish/seafood are the "specials" of the day..although the menu was quite detailed, excellent wine list..We arrived early, 4p.m..special oysters started at 5.p.m..yummy...We had a party of six, incluing a 10 year child, and all went well..Would definately re-visit when in Scituate.

Had dinner here and had an enjoyable experience. Had reservations and were promptly seated in a nice window seat. Bummer that this harbor restaurant doesn't actually face the water (actually faces Front Street) - so don't go for the views - go for the food! And speaking of the food - our dinners were quite good. Had good wine and... More

Waitstaff was wonderful, the food was real good, it is a bit noisy. We met some local people who go there quite often and they were very nice. One thing was a little different they had no specials that night. It was our first visit , but expected to see some specials. Overall a great night out!!

Noise level at the bar was deafening, and in the next room where we ate, it only slightly less so. We had trouble hearing virtually everything our very soft spoken waitress had to say. And when she was asked to say it again, she spoke in the same soto vocce, repeatedly. Maybe she had a sore throat? Anyway, the meal... More

My wife and I had a fun summer evening dining at Oro in Scituate on the Friday of Labor Day weekend. We had reservations in advance which was a good call as there were quite a few folks strolling about in the harbor-front area. We were able to snag one of the last remaining parking spots in the municipal parking... More

Have been here multiple times and the food has not disappointed yet. The noise level here is usually pretty high and the service is only OK but the consistency of well prepared food is what brings people back.

Long review; here's the summary...Oro is a glorified local bar that serves overpriced food by unpolished, inexperienced but friendly servers in a deafening environment. We had been trying to visit since last summer and had heard mostly positive things (including from a local Cohasset shopkeeper earlier today.) However, this was as disappointing a dining experience as we have had in... More

This is our "go to" restaurant in Scituate for dependably interesting and fresh ingredients prepared creatively and "with love" by owner/chef and talented crew. Great place to meet friends and share refreshing cocktails offered by the talented bar staff or a selection from the ample wine offering. Oro's popularity can sometimes make a loud space lost quickly in the fun... More

Really enjoy the food and atmosphere on Sundays. The have excellent music as background. Have also been during the week, but it has been a bit crowded with a long wait for tables (a good sign i guess ), but we prefer the more low key Sunday brunch. Food is excellent as well. Local seafood and really like the organic... More
