Makeup for a bad experience

I wrote a review previously about this restaurant and the horrible experience me and my husband had on Valentines. I went ahead and removed that review because the owner had contacted me to makeup for the experience. We agreed and returned to the restaurant. The food was great this time and the... read more

We found this restaurant in the local Salem paper's "Best of" and it didn't disappoint! Great service throughout and some of the best food in the Salem area. Go on a nice day and ask to sit on the roof. The path takes you through the back area, past the kitchen and up some stairs but on a nice warm... More

I came back to Orupa specifically for their Hot Chocolate Strudel -- puff pastry with chocolate ganache inside. They mistakenly give you chocolate icecream with it, but it tastes bland alongside the dreamy ganache. Big enough to share, though I'm sad I did. I also had their BLT sandwich, which is naan bread with proscuitto, too thick chunks of lettuce... More

Had lunch with some friends at ORUPA today. I had my favorite dish, the pasta with wild mushrooms. Last time I did not think it was as good as usual, because they had used different pasta. This time I asked for spaghetti and it was truly excellent!

My husband and I have frequented this place many times and it has always been excellent. All of the servers and bartenders have given us exceptional service. I had the Charcuterie tonight and the bartender recommended a phenomenal wine to complement it. It was busy but received excellent service and the food was exceptional. I recommend this restaurant highly the... More

Orupa is amazing. The food options & beverages are excellent. The service is wonderful! I decided to host a Willamette University reunion here and the attention to detail was top of the line and exceptional. Thank you for making this experience wonderful for all of us. But more importantly every time that I decide to dine at Orupa with my... More

My husband and I have tried this restaurant on two seperate occasions. The first time was okay, service was extremely slow. The second trip however was during the middle of the week during happy hour. The head bartender was more concerned about caring for his friends at the bar, instead of serving my husband and I and the other tables.... More

We went for lunch on a Friday afternoon and enjoyed the ham & cheese sandwich and crab cake special. Food was fresh and delicious.

I had lunch at Orupa yesterday. I have always liked their food, but yesterday it was not great. My favorite menu item, the pasta with wild mushrooms has always had spaghetti, now it has some type of short, very thick pasta. This does not go well with the delicate mushrooms. I wish restaurants would just stick to their "tried and... More

Change the meal to what is the desire. Please next time ask for spaghetti... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch before a business meeting nearby. Ordered their daily specials, and was pleasantly surprised with the soup and the italian meatballs. Great taste, great dishes. Serving staff didn't seem very in tune with the flow of food and customers - maybe we got lucky that day. Maybe the trick is to keep the orders simple.... More
