From the valet, to the wait staff, and ambiance, the experience is always great! The food in particular is amazing. They have some of the best vegetarian options in Iowa City!

We always enjoy the hummus appetizer. The flavors of hummus vary and are unique. The chicken bucatini is one of my favorites. It was delicious tonight. We tried the blueberry creme brûlée and chocolate torte. The creme brûlée was a huge serving and was quite enjoyable. The sauces with the torte were very nice. I enjoy the dining room for... More

My sister was in town and we went to Orchard Green Restaurant. The fish appetizer plate was fantastic. I love the fried vegetable appetizer as well. My sister had the tarragon chicken dish. She said that it may be the best chicken she has ever had. My husband had the filet mignon and I had the duck. Both of these... More

Our family celebrated our son's graduation last weekend, dining at Orchard Green the evening prior to commencement. We were 14 (yes 14) minutes late for our reservation due to unexpected traffic/construction delays on the interstate. When we arrived, a bit flustered, the host indicated that we were out of luck and would not be seated in the main dining area.... More

We dined for dinner after the U of Iowa graduation. Service was great. We didn't have to wait for our reservation on such a busy night. The food was delicious. I had the soft shell crab appetizer and a filet. Both cooked perfectly. The peanut butter mousse for dessert was great. Definitely recommend.

For special occasions my wife and I always go to Orchard Green. If you are a foodie, this is your best bet in the area. Everything the chef puts out is fantastic. The flavors in the sauces on each plate just have to be experienced, I can't even describe it. I usually try a new entree every time I go... More

We took my parent out for their 90th and 83rd birthdays. They thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The baked King Crab, spinach and artichoke dip was outstanding. Also, the carmalized onion and lobster and squash brisk soup were very good. Entree selections consisted of duck, cowboy ribeye steak, Chilean sea bass and salmon. We all sampled each other's entrees and all... More
