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

Our large group visited several weeks ago on a Friday evening. Parking can be a bit of an issue around there, but I do see that they offer a valet service. We dined in the upstairs dining area for our birthday get together. We had a wonderful time. We were treated very well, never feeling like our servers were waiting... More

Our party of four arrived without a reservation, midweek, at peak dinner hour, and we were promptly seated. Our waiter was friendly and knowledge, offering helpful menu suggestions and a great recommendation on wine. Appetizers and salads arrived right on queue. And they were delicious. But....oh no....30 minutes passed and no entrees and no waiter! At last, they both arrived... More
