Let me start out by saying that my husband is no fan of dairy food or fish. To add to the drama, my daughter only eats gluten-free food. When we arrived at Orchidea, the place was spotless, (icky restaurants are a big no-no for us) and beautifully appointed. We were literally welcomed by whom we believed to be the owner, as though we were her children. We were seated immediately and, when we explained our dietary needs they didn't bat an eyelash. They offered us so many gluten-free options (amazing! Hardly any restaurants offer that! 2 Choices of Gluten free soups! Eggplant parmesan! Fish! you name it, they were ready to make it.) and they took the time to explain to us exactly how they were making the food, so that there would be no cross-contamination! They even went as far as showing us the ingredients they were going to use prior to making the dishes we chose for her, to see if it met with our needs. To us, that kind of personal care is priceless. But the most important part of any review is about the actual food. In a word; Heavenly. Presentation? Gorgeous! Fish? Cooked just the right amount of time and flavored deliciously. Pastas? Terrific! Sushi? Wow! Service? Unmatched! Even my husband, who's a dairy and fish skeptic by choice, loved the appetizers, the sushi and especially loved his Fettuccine Alfredo. We actually walked out of there making plans to return (which we rarely do, as we enjoy adventure rather than 'the usual') If you've never eaten there, take the time to visit them. You won't regret it! Thank you, Orchidea! You rock!

This review is a little late however it must be said. I had to arrange a double birthday party within a limited time frame. It was my mothers 50th bday and a belated one for my uncle. We had to arrange for him to arrive via access a ride since he has a wheel chair. The staff was very accomedating and a table was arranged for us. It was a little claustrophobic but to be fair it was a Sunday evening and I did it last minute. My uncle was ecstatic.one spoon of the cream of mushroom soup and he was in heaven. I've never seen him so happy. We had about 5 plus people in my party. My mother ordered the mozzarella sticks as an appetizer the rest of us had the cream of mushroom soup. For the main course we had the sea bass and for the finally we had a dessert pupuplatter with a mini sparkler for added affect. The presentation and quality of the food was top notch. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a upscale dinery. I was concernd i might have needed a club membeship card. all the food was made superb and made fresh. I hope to do this again next year, although to be fair I'll let them know well in advance!

I was all set to fall madly in love with this place. After reading glowing reviews, i decided to treat my boyfriend to dinner here to commemmorate a yartzheit. To start, the service was far greater than I expected. Tables were elegantly set, water glasses were promptly refilled. Additionsl bread was brought when requested. I ordered the cream of mushroom soup and pasta primavera with added grilled tuna. My companion had lemon sole with a side of baked potato and some interesting but unidentified vegetable on the side presented in what I think was a fluted potato chip or tortilla cup. Striking presentation. My bf ate every drop and even finished off half of my soup and pasta. The soup was perfction in a bowl, smooth, creamy, rich, while my pasta, though flavorful, was not the greatest I've had. There were several birthday parties tonight so the noise level was high, and several little girls were vocally unhappy when the waiters stopped them from playing with the strands of beads suspended from the ceiling along the front of the dining room. All in all i'd say that it was a very good experience, if a bit pricey. But the occasion warranted it, and I will definitely return to try some of theur other offerings. While I can't say I fell in love with the place, I can honestly say I did enjoy it.

We had a super experience last night when we celebrated my mom's 50th birthday at Orchidea. Ofer, the manager was totally involved and helped us personalize the event and make sure it stayed a surprise until the very end! The food was delicious, service was excellent. It did take a while until it got to us, but it was worth the wait.

this review is beyond overdue. i've been wanting to write it for the last several months but anyone who's had a colic baby would understand. my experience with orchidea was better than perfect. the owner made me a party that was more beautiful than i could have dreamed it. i had been in the hospital for almost a week and was only able to plan the party via phone. not only did he give me everything that i asked for but he also went out of his way to make me personalized photo favors and decorations i wouldn't have thought of on my own. he reassured me when i had bigger things to worry about at the hospital and executed every one of my wishes and then some. i originally chose orchidea for its beautiful ambiance and incredible food but when i walked into the restaurant that morning, i was blown away. everything was just so beautiful. needless to say, the bris went off without a hitch, the food was delicious and so many of my guests told me they'd never attended a nicer bris in their lives. thank you, ofer...for everything. i'll never forget your kindness, your impeccable taste and i can't wait to work with you again.

The food was great! No complaints about that! The thing is they took a long time to bring the food out. But I gotta tell you, it was worth the wait!
