My wife and I went there for dinner. I had the salmon, it was good but the portion was pretty small and served too cold. My wife had the rock fish, she had to send it back because it was not cocked enough. We would not go back.

We had been saving our crab leg dinner for our last night in Alaska. We made a wise choice with Orso. The location is great, parking was convenient and the food and service were really good. We will be back.

We went their during the weekend of Fur Rondy and the night before the Iditarod start. Our server knew we had show tickets, but our food was slow coming out of the kitchen. We really had to scarf down the desserts that came w our meal so we weren't late to our show. We also had to asked for water... More

You can dress fancy or casual and still feel comfortable. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and efficient. We have had nice couples meals and come with friends. The salmon is excellent and the selection of appetizers makes it hard to choose.

We went out for a birthday dinner and each of us chose the Showtime Menu for $30. We each received an appetizer, main course and dessert. Fabulous value and each part of the meal was full-sized, not skimped on at all. The waiter, Frank, was knowledgeable about the wines and food, and was fantastic at reading the table, coming to...

Three of us ate dinner at Orso. We had salmon, lingcod, and rockfsh. All wonderful. They also had several other seafood dishes. Their wine list was extensive and there were several Malbecs. The one we had (not by far the most expensive) was excellent. Prices were what you would expect for a nice restaurant. Service was excellent. Decor is really... More

We keep coming back when we're in town to meet friends. The appetizers always grab us, the cocktails are special and the conversation always sparkles. What more could we ask?

I found the food to be "ok" but the price was way too high for the quality of food. The staff was great and the set up of the restaurant was very good. Unlike;y we will go back for dinner. Might try lunch to see if the food is more suited.

This is my favorite restaurant in Anchorage. The service is exceptionally high quality, as is the food, which is presented with high style and superior flavor! It is upscale, but not snooty. My kids and I felt very comfortable.

Tuesday in February in Anchorage? Nick delivered as well as Myla from Nov 15. French onion soup-delicate and balance; king crab legs (1/2) portion - scrumptious; Caesar salad (Nick shined, suggesting dressing on the side, it was heavy), but the romaine was fresh and crisp and chilled! Well done!
