Fine dining but confused and messy composition
- Ambiance -
Modern Japanese jazz / pop - a bit of a strange choice that didn’t seem to have much cohesiveness with the food
Small restaurant sitting - of about 15-18 people but comfortably spaced out.
Decor is clean modern albeit a bit basic in taste. Sometimes simplicity work in its favor with taste, but this was an average modern clean open kitchen design
Service is good and polite - but nothing out of the ordinary or remarkable.
- Food -
Prefixed menu of “5 courses” with an option to add one more. But really almost a menu of 10 items (many of which not shown)
The menu design was just overall feels random. One example was a sweet potatoe ravioli, duck stew and truffles in a tomato Italian-Indian sauce. The truffles felt completely misplaced that neither went with the ravioli nor the duck nor the sauce.
The overall execution of the dishes were modern fine dining cuisine done well, but again was confused and difficult to connect the dots between dish to dish. It’s almost as if you ordered à la crate - except you have no choices.
Lastly but unfortunately not controlled, we had a very rude set of customer next to our table. Who constantly coughed and had no conscious morale to not affect people around. It was uncomfortable to sit through the meal as a result.
Fantastic dining experience and the food was amazing! We made the reservation a month in advance on OpenTable. I recommend ride share to the restaurant since parking is limited and the surrounding area is not the best.
Service is top notch and pacing was one of the best I've experienced. They tailor the pace to each table's progress. There were 6 other parties dining at the same time and we finished first since we didn't add the optional course or wine pairing.
While the menu talked about 5 courses, we were pleasantly surprised to receive any gifts throughout the meal. Everything was tasty and well executed with a variety of textures, tastes and presentation.
I went there with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday. Orsa & Winston is a fabulous restaurant with a reasonable price, given it is a Michelin-starred restaurant in 2021 and 2019. The menu is fixed, which means you don't need to think about what to order. We even got a few extra treats that day.
I enjoyed the Satsuki rice porridge the most. I can't imagine how the cream and trout roe would be harmonized to a magical extent. In addition to top-notch food, I also enjoyed the cute atmosphere and good service there. Flawless fine dining experience.
Good fine dining experience. Place is very limited in capacity so make sure you reserve ahead of time. Parking is a pain but it's worth it. Every dish was great. I am a fan of Japanese and Italian food. I don't usually like fusion restaurants but this place nailed it.
My favorite dish was the supplemental course. The menu said it had uni but it did not. Still not complaining, it was delicious. Reminded me of a risotto but with scallops and roe.
Service was also great. Really enjoyed the drink recommendations although there aren't cocktails. Everything pairs better with wine or sake anyways.
