We went with a group of couples on a restaurant crawl through Iowa City. Orchard Green was our first stop. We didn't want to leave! From the complimentary valet parking to the linen-covered tables in the historic yet luxurious dining room, we enjoyed attentive and knowledgeable service. We ordered about five appetizers to share. Orchard Green has a wonderful selection... More

We read the reviews and were skeptical about seafood in the middle of Iowa. However, we had an EXCELLENT meal at Orchard Green! The mussel appetizer was outstanding. We shared the pear and blue salad(but we chose feta into of blue cheese) which was another great choice. We really enjoyed the duck for one of our main dishes. In addition,... More

My wife and I ate at Orchard Green during a stop in Iowa City on a trip to Colorado. We really enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is located in an old factory which has been beautifully remodeled in a way that preserves the stone walls and dark hardwood paneling, providing an elegantly warm ambience. We both ordered the pork saltimbocca... More

We have eaten here many times and the food is consistently excellent. I have had the Braised duck, the Pork Saltimboca, the Mixed Grill, the Tarragon Chicken as well as several of the appetizers. The atmosphere and the staff are all fantastic. Orchard Green continues to be one of our favorites in town.

Very attentive, friendly service by experienced staff. Whole team approach; guest-centric. Five of us; experienced diners; all pleased by preparation; all veggies served al dente. Located in a 20's(?) bank-like setting:high ceilings, low floors; lots of fine wood trim. Didn't visit lounge downstairs, but looked ideal for cocktails or late-evening nightcap and stylin' pub fare. Street parking only. Above address... More

Very romantic atmosphere, great service and outstanding food. We had the smoked fish and lobster butternut squash bisque. Awesome!!! The smoked fish is large enough for two. The best! We then had the whitefish and the pork saltimbocca. They were both better than steak. Definitely worth the trip and the expense.

Absolutely everything I tasted was scrumptious! I have never tasted better food. It was their first Mother's Day buffet and their second one , I understand. I highly recommend this wonderfully appointed restaurant.

My friends and I went here for my birthday. I had never been but heard such great things about it. The reviews were right! Great food, cocktails, and service! They even let me choose a free dessert for my birthday! I chose the caramel cheesecake and it was heaven! We all enjoyed our meals and the great atmosphere! If you... More

We looked forward to a nice, quiet dinner at the end of a long day of travel. Orchard Green did not disappoint. In fact, it was one of the best restaurant meals we have had in a long time. We both had pork saltimbocca. It was delicious and elegantly presented. The portions were large and my biggest regret was that... More
