Great place, great food, great ambiance!
Only bug is that it can be too noisy BUT the people are great and the food and drinks are right up there for a fun evening with friends.

Spectacular food and drinkl!
My gal and I have eaten here three time. EVERY dish was superb in taste, texture, composition and presentation. The mixologist is a MASTER at his craft!

Not a good value
I liked this place in the beginning but just had a very expensive and totally ordinary meal with bad service. My veal chop and my husband's rib eye were not cooked to our specifications. The salads were overdressed. The risotto was bland. The anchovies in the "caesar" salad were the best thing we had. And no one ever bothered to ask how we liked our meal. The idea was to get our table back ASAP.

Orange Squirrel is a letdown.
Went there after reading the review on Baristanet. Was very, very disappointed. The chef was having a fight in the kitchen. The portions were very small, very pricey and not very tasty. I asked to have my fish deboned, they said the chef would do it this time only because it is so time consuming. There was no one else in the restaurant. Limited choice of wine. Would not go back again.

Not worth it
Went there after reading some good reviews and was really dissapointed. The first meal come out 15 minutes before the rest of the table was served and it was impossible to get drink refills even though it wasn't really busy

Something different
Fantastic little touches make the place different and outstanding. You can tell that everyone involved cares a lot.
