Last evening we had another fabulous dinner at Orienta. Starting with the Orienta Rainbow salad and the Fried Calamari salad and then the Pistachio crusted Salmon with bok choy and purple sticky rice and the Montauk Swordfish, all of which were outstanding. My husband said it was the best swordfish he ever ate. For dessert the Chocolate mandarin mousse with glazed ginger. Adrien Blech, the chef, has made Orienta the best restaurant in Greenwich with French Vietnamese dishes that are creative and delicious. See you next Friday night and Father's Day dinner!!!

Orienta is the best restaurant in Greenwich. The food is French Vietnamese, creative and delicious. We have dined there several times and enjoyed every bite. The decor is beautiful and the service superb. Tonight’s special was the Mahi Mahi and wonderful along with the lobster shooters as an appetizer. Key line pie for dessert was perfect.

Bad luck because was seated next to and facing the restrooms, very restless spot and couldn't see anything that happened in the restaurant. The quality of the food was good, but the portions were very small. Overall over priced. They made a mistake and double charched us for the tea.

The food was excellent and the staff could not have bene nicer. The only drawback was that the tables are super small. We were a party of 4 (3 over 6' tall) and our knees knocked the entire time and we had to remove things from the table to fit the dinner plates and glasses.

The best food in Greenwich, CT. Delicious, creative meals with excellent service. French Vietnamese dishes that are so superb it’s impossible to say which one was the best. We can’t wait to return for more of Adrien Blech’s cooking.

While in Greenwich for the day, we happened upon Orienta and stopped in for a meal. On their website, they’ve described themselves as a French-Vietnamese inspired restaurant - although in my opinion it was more Asian/American fusion. From what I’ve gathered from the menu, there were only two* Vietnamese-esque dishes - spring and summer rolls. There’s pad Thai, Korean tacos, rice bowls, chicken satay, tuna sashimi, and salmon tartare - which I wouldn’t consider at all “French-Vietnamese inspired” in any way. Perhaps the website needs to be updated to provide a better representation along the lines of Asian-fusion? Other than that, the space was a tad cozy for us and a bit concerning especially during this time as there weren’t much spaces in between tables besides a plexiglass unless like us, where we were seated at a table with the bar next to us. As an Asian and the only one in the restaurant at the time during dining, I didn’t feel at all welcomed...in an “Asian-fusion” restaurant. While the server was engaging, the hostesses left a bad taste. You’re the faces of a restaurant - therefore the first impression was quite important. As for the food, surprisingly it was more than decent and the chef appeared to know what he was doing and quite creative with their cooking. I was hesitant to try the chicken satay as many places happened to butcher a staple Southeast Asian dish but with Orienta’s innovative twist to it - not too shabby. We’ve ordered other dishes as well but overall, it wasn’t worth writing a long drawn-out review as overall - the impression provided from this restaurant had deemed it as a place we wouldn’t return to again. Luckily, there’s a plethora of restaurants to sample and this was not at all a loss.

Delightful interiors, warm and yet trendy atmosphere. Apps were good, our dinners no so great....over salted steak, watery pad thai....but I would try it again as I think they have many good things going on here. Staff was friendly.

Delicious, expertly prepared food. The portions were perfect, not too small, but not so big you couldn't finish, or had to take some home. Pretty cramped space, when it's warmer we'll come back and dine outside. The crowd looked like they'd spilled out of one of the country clubs.
