If you want an amazing meal or have a special occasion to celebrate, visit Orchard Green. Excellent service, beautiful surroundings and of course the great food. I love the tortellini and the lobster bisque.

Spending a weekend in Iowa City, and recommendations for fine dining pointed to Orchard Green. The space is interesting, lower level lounge and second floor dining room. Decor is heavy on wood, with exposed brick and period brass lighting. Started with their signature cocktail, an apple martini with fig, didn't have much flavor for my tastes. We sampled the bean...

We came based on the reviews and were not disappointed. Our service was good (not exceptionally slow as one reviewer wrote) and although our server mixed up our salad order, she promptly corrected it. The wine list included a couple of different but very good selections by the glass. I echo another reviewer who recommended the focaccia appetizer - very... More

We recently dined at Orchard Green, and really loved it. We live in Iowa, and travel to Iowa City regularly. This was our first meal at Orchard Green. The decor was beautiful, with brick and dark wood. It was also quiet, and easy to have a conversation, which we also loved. For appetizers, we had the focaccia bread, and a... More

Great ambiance, very good food. The downstairs is great for a girls night out get-together. The salmon small-plate is always fabulous and the cook will do it to your specifications. A must-do if in Iowa City

I have dined at Orchard Green several times and have never been disappointed by either the meal or the service. The atmosphere is lovely - quiet and elegant without being stuffy. The meals are reasonably priced especially given the expertise of the chef. A not to be missed dining experience in the Iowa City area!

I love this restaurant! Since we had our dinner party there last year, we've been back multiple times. Every time, every dish is excellent and the servers are always the best!

This is a great place for that special event...birthday, anniversary, good friend reunion, and other events. From the valet service, to luxury, indirect lighting, to quiet...it is the perfect night to dress up and have some great chef prepared meal. I love the bone in ribeye while my wife likes the lighter fare, and have a special appetizer and dessert.

We went to Iowa City with friends to dine at Orchard Green. We enjoy food that is fresh and flavorful. What a wonderful meal! Scallops were exceptional with the ratatouille. The house red was delicious. We shared the pecan pie, that was served with sorbet and whipped cream. Focaccia bread was warm and plentiful. Can't wait to return.

We came here for dinner to celebrate a birthday. I normally think of myself as an adventurous eater, but I found nothing on the menu that spoke to me. All of the dishes were quite complex, e.g. the salmon was crusted, the filet was crusted, and the walleye was crusted. I'd rather have my fish/meat simply prepared, with a great... More
