I brought my sister and brother-in-law here for lunch last friday afternoon around 1pm. The menu looked great, the place wasnt packed, I work in the neighborhood, it seemed perfect. from the moment we walked in, the waiter was extremely rude to us. We asked for a bottle of house white wine, he threw his hands up ... I said okay, pinot grigio, he forcefully gave us a wine menu with, sure enough, a simple pinot grigio listed at the top. He was trying to rub it in that we werent wine connoisseurs and we didnt belong in a place with such a "classy" wine list. I asked my family if we should just leave, my brother-in-law (who is the director of operations for a large, very busy restaurant) said no, he wanted to try the food. Every step of the way this waiter was as mean to us as he could be. He was a total snob and I will not go back here... unfortunate because our food was very good!

I have been to this restaurant numerous times and everything I have ordered has been delicious. Highly recommended! The mini burgers, calamari, mussels, etc are all to die for. The waiter even brought drinks on the house... great service and food all around.

From the moment we arrived for late afternoon drinks, our waiter, through body language and lack of interest, made it very clear we were unwanted guests. I could feel the waiter's contempt, as if we were uncultured suburbanites or site-seeing fanny-pack wearing tourists . He attempted to seat us in an inconvenient location, though there was plenty of good seating availbale. Ordering our drinks was an ordeal as he stood by anxiously for us to order. (I think he was surprised when he heard my french Parisian accent.) What is obviously a great spot ruined by 'le' snob.

We waited 20 minutes for an open table that we coulve sat eight down in immediately. Ended up outside across from a parking lot...lovely :/ service was terrible. Had to flag the waiter down to order twice, never checked up on us and we waited with eaten plates for another 20 minutes. Finally flagged him down and he had tj be flagged down again!!! After 10 mintues to pick up the check. Food was not good enough for this kind of service. Had the lab chops and were overcooked. Never coming back.

My girlfriend and I decided to take a night on the town for just us girls. We went to L'Orange and ended up having an amazing time. The atmosphere was wonderful..a little loud but very fun and entertaining. Our waiter treated us like Queens with free Champagne and wonderful attention. The food was yummy and very light. We tried new things and thoroughly enjoyed our night!

My parents were in town for the weekend, and I had taken them to a few thai and french fusion spots in the city. needless to say they wanted some Moroccan food ( we are Moroccan) and a friend advised me to take them to L'Orange Bleue for good prices and good authentic food. We went, and at first I was pleased. The menu was wonderful with some great-sounding dishes. We started first with a platter of assorted Moroccan salads. Garbage. The hummus was among the worst. As if they put garbanzo beans and parsley and some water in a blender and then served it. No flavor. Nothing. The other items on the platter were eqaully flavorless. The marinated carrots were weak, the 'cigars' which are a classic dish were more like eggrolls. It was even more infuriating that the platter cost about 40 dollars. We decided not to order anything else, and in true Moroccan style, left the place absolutely frustrated and angry. I actually can't believe that the place has ben around for as long as it has.

If you want to have a great time, you have to visit this place. Don't expect a romantic dinner, this place is to have fun, eat well and leave happy. I never rate, but I think this place deserves it. Service is great, food is delicious and music is loud, so prepare for a fun time. Can't wait to go back!
