Service not so good

We decided to order dessert and it took almost 20 minutes to come from the kitchen. Secondly, the Expresso/Cappucino machine was not working. It took awhile for us to receive the check and finally pay the bill. This process took about 15 minutes. I'm not unhappy with the overall experience, however I wanted to share this feedback as an opportunity for improvement.

They should have a bigger wine selection.

Really miss the omelettes and fries that I used to have at Seppi's. More options that don't have pork or shellfish would be a good fit for the demographics of the neighborhood, too. Personally I would appreciate more vegetarian options because a huge bowl of pasta gets rather boring after a while even though it's good. Merci!

Attentive service; the chef and the owner went around to each table, making sure everyone was well taken care of.

The staff needs to be friendlier and provide faster service. Also, the wine selection needs to be upgraded.

About half of the dishes that were promised on the Groupon deal were not available. They said, that they were out of stock. Those dishes happen to be the more pricey ones. The food that we ended up having was good but it was not worth the price that we were told. In the end there was no bargain, there was no 50% discount like the deal said. Won't buy these types of deals again.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant's behavior regarding the Groupon. I phoned in January to make a reservation and was told that the restaurant was no longer accepting Groupons. I contacted Groupon and went back and forth for a week when finally Groupon said that a rep in the area had spoken with the restaurant and that my Groupon would be honored. I had asked for my money back, but I accepted this proposal. So, I attempted to make another reservation and was told that I could not use my Groupon on the weekend (it was Sunday). I complained and stated that I had just been in touch with Groupon and was told that my Groupon would be good for the time stated, which was any day of the week - no exclusions. The receptionist/hostess told me to hold and returned to the phone stating that I could come in that evening - which was Sunday and still use the Groupon. So, we get to the restaurant and there was a sign posted on the door that Groupons could only be used during the week - Mon thru Thur. I expressed my concern to the hostess and she said it was okay to use the Groupon. I had originally purchased the Groupon as I wanted the surf n'turf which was on the menu for $29.00 - as I looked at the menu on line and using the link provided by Groupon. The Groupon was good for any entree up to and including $29.00. When I looked at the menu at the restaurant the surf n'turf was now $32.00 and out of the price range for the Groupon. I asked if I could pay the extra $3.00 and was told that the surf n/turf was off limits. By this point, I was tired of the whole thing and just said 'fine'. The waiter we had was very good and apologetic and the food was fine but I won't ever go back. This restaurant did not live up to their bargain and it was an incredible hassle. I do believe that Groupon should have refunded the price of this purchase when the whole incident began.

From Our Editors

As a child, Claude Solliard filled his mother's pantry with produce from the northern Italian countryside. He picked wild mushrooms, tended grapevines, and harvested bushels of spaghetti, becoming a farm-to-table chef long before it came into fashion. As the executive chef of Oregano Bar & Bistro, Solliard reprises this role while fusing French and Iberian (Spanish and Portuguese) cuisine. He adds French flair to paella by adding duck, and redefines ratatouille by plating it with Serrano ham and salmon.

When New York Times reported on the opening of Oregano Bar & Bistro, it placed special emphasis on the bistro's décor concept, which originated from the mind of Erick Caceres. To create a classic-yet-modern ambiance, Caceres outfitted the 133-seat bistro with a glass-enclosed garden room and waterfall. A red-leather banquette stretches across the main dining room and backs up to a wall inlaid with mirrors that advertise the catch of the day and your face.
