This place has a great atmosphere. It is large, but charming. Many tables and I'm sure always packed, but not noisy - easy to carry on a conversation. The upstairs dining room reminds one of the best of Chicago. The bar downstairs (we parked out back, so walked through) looks fun and inviting. Our service was great - attentive and... More

I really like this place. The food is interesting but not pretentious. The wine list is extensive. It is quiet for conversation. The wait staff is appropriately attentive. Great place for casual yet elegant dinner.

We love Orchard Green. Quite simply, we have never been disappointed in ANY way at Orchard Green. Their food is delicious with a really nice range of items from which to choose. We recently ate there with a vegetarian, a real red meat person, and two "foodies", all of whom ordered a different entree. And everyone loved their dinner! The... More

Orchard Green is my go-to restaurant for a special dinner out with family, friends, or a special business dinner. The food is exceptional, the ambiance is attractive and appealing, and the service is always impeccable.

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
