A very swish restaurant which is bright and airy with tables set nicely apart for a private dining experience. The service is excellent and the food was delicious. A quite contemporary menu but extremely tasty and beautifully presented. They also have fabulous roof terrace for dining which has shade if necessary. This is not a cheap restaurant by any means but definitely fabulous for an occasion. I can’t wait to return.

Was ther on 6/18/2018.
Went there to try set menu. I usually do the first time I visit a restaurant to get a feel if I want to pay the full price.

The first course was a seafood ravioli, lobster bisque. It was slightly warm. Oh well I thought. Next course will be great!! Well the next course, braised pork cheek, was even cooler. I mention it to staff and the replaced it with HOT entrée.

Ok..not bad..but certainly not up to the reputation I had read.

Another VERY annoying thing was the server who brought food to waiter was wearing taps (metal ) on heel of shoes. So..here is this nice relaxing restaurant with the server click, click, click on the floor everytime he pass your table!!

I do think that this restaurant depends on its laurals. Perhaps at one time she shined..but now a dull memory.

We have been to Orrery many times and it is a special place for us - not least because the restaurant is spacious, tables well apart and you can conduct conversation easily, even across a large table. On this occasion we were four. The food has been generally good, on occasion exceptional, but on this occasion somewhat disappointing, especially for the main courses.

Lovely starters of fillet steak tartare - unusually with cubes of raw fillet - and subtle and excellent sea bass ceviche. The waiter was pushing the chef's recommendation of medium rare for my wife's fillet steak and she made it clear she preferred rare, but it was medium to well done. My lamb fillet (again asked for pink) was definitely well done. Our dish of potatoes was so undercooked that they had to go back - no issue with the waiter over this and they made it clear that the dish would not be charged. But still, disappointing that they only came back virtually as we were finishing our plates. Our two desserts were both very good. One guest ordered a large serving of the crab with mango as her main course but felt that the dish was unduly overpowered by the quantity of mango at the expense of a relatively small portion of crab. The other guest had the risotto, which he only described as "all right".

So there were some really enjoyable dishes but I don't think we have ever felt that some of the cooking was so off form there.

Very good wines - Luberon red and Petit Chablis at very acceptable prices.

The evening was wonderfully relaxing and the service attentive but non-intrusive and we were able to spend over three hours at a very pleasing table without any sense of pressure to pay the bill or leave.

Even if we were a bit disappointed compared with previous visits, we would still recommend Orrery for that special occasion.

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed.

We went on a Sunday and had the set 3 course menu.

If I had one negative, it was that it was noisy.

We have always liked Orrery and it was the place to go for our silver wedding celebration lunch. It was very quiet this time and our table was next to a window but not in a particularly good place. The service and the food were excellent as always and we were given a complimentary celebration plate of chocolates. We will certainly go back again; it is one of the very best restaurants in the Marylebone area.

I had an evening dinning booked in Orrery on the 12/05/2018 with some friends. We definitely enjoyed. The ambience was very good. The staff very attentive to details and to crown it all the food presentation by the Chef was excellent. Food was just enjoyable and it set our evening chatting away and enjoying the ambience. I will definitely book and recommend the restruant to others.

It was a birthday celebration for my elderly mother. She was disappointed with the food as it was not only rich for her but the risotto (which 3 out of 4 of us had) had hardly any rice in it! It was mostly a creamy sauce with a few bits of crunchy rice (no way was the rice al dente). Shame, because otherwise it was nice and the setting was lovely. A lift up to the 1st floor was perfect for my mum.

In the middle of dinner they sat two walk ins for coffee at the next table. I complained saying it’s a restaurant not Starbucks, but was told they’d rather have a full restaurant... Ambience ZERO. ATTITUDE zero. FOOD okay for £40.

I have tried the tasting menu in March. It was really good that it started with a foie gras canard (duck liver) and the brioche bread was very well toasted. The second dish crab meat and mango was a very good combination indeed. It was a little unfortunate that I find the steak a tiny bit too salty. The dessert was really good and the pre-dessert sorbet was super refreshing and made a good start to the dessert session.

Four of us met for a semi-special lunch. Each had been to Orrery before, and our high expectations were fully satisfied. It's an attractive setting - all the better for not having background music. The food was delicious, wine recommendations well judged and service just at the right level of attentiveness.

The refurbishment has yielded a fresher look, with more comfortable armchairs, rearranged table space and a warmer background colour. The new menus are beautiful to look at - not to mention eat. The prix fixe lunchtime menu, while not cheap, is fair value for delicious food (I had a perfect hanger steak; my friend enjoyed exactly cooked risotto) and the wines by the glass include some interesting choices. To my mind, and against plenty of competition, this is the best kitchen in Marylebone.
