Went here for brunch and was extremely pleased. It's a little pricy but very worth it. The bloody mary's were absolutely delicious, and the pear margarita was good, but a little sweet for my taste. We had the beef tartare which was fabulous, and I had the croque madame which was also delicious. It was a different take on it, with pork shoulder that was extremely tender, and the gruyere cheese with an egg just made for a creamy, messy and delicious sandwich. My boyfriend had the duck hash which he was very happy with. It was maybe a little too salty, but it didn't detract from the dish. The only thing that I personally didn't like was the deviled eggs. It was overly seasoned. Bacon on top was good though. Overall, very very happy! (And service was great too)

Orsay is a flawlessly executed French dining and mixology hotspot. The Foi Gras Mousse was noteworthy and the cocktails easily surpassed some of the more exclusive speakeasies we have visited in the U.S. We were surprised at the attentiveness of the service and the highly knowledgeable yet friendly staff (Adam and Peter in particular) made this restaurant experience worth many times what we paid. Alex (the spirit manager) created a branca expresso cocktail that blew us away. In short, if you are on a date and you want it to go well, take them to Orsay.

I had heard that this restaurant was unfriendly and a bit snooty with limited entrees. I decided to try it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. Everyone was extremely friendly and there were a myriad of entrees from which to choose. I had a halibut with green lentils and my family members had a vegetarian shepherd's pie, the house salad and beef stroganoff. All was very good and service was super.

Not sure why there are some many raving reviews, there wasn't much of anything the would warrant writing something so flattering. There is no value in the prices. $17 for 2 seared scallops? $16.50 for a vodka martini? Very small portions for the money being spent. We are in preparation for a trip to Paris and wanting to experience French cuisine from a variation of locations. A stand out dish was the roasted oysters. Two thumbs up. Creme Bruelee was also tasty. This was a been there done that experience. No need to return.

Orsay is one of my favorite spots in Avondale for brunch. Great drinks and delicious food! I love the atmosphere as well. Highly recommend to anyone looking for great french food and a good champagne cocktail.
