My wife was about to celebrate a milestone birthday and I wanted to find a place with a great atmosphere, wonderful food and a good wine list. We have a lot of favorites in Iowa City to choose from; she chose Orchard Green. It was a perfect choice as we were able to have a table where it was quiet... More

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.
