"On a business trip and staying at Emily Morgan Hotel (excellent) and tried the hotel restaurant on first night. Did not return. To be fair, the food was fine but service and ants (yes, live ants) on the table were too much for this foodie to overcome. When raised with the restaurant manager, he acknowledged they had an ant problem. Enough said. Plenty of other options nearby."

"It was a little concerning when you walk into a greatly reviewed restaurant in a conference city at 8pm at night and you are the only ones there. We had a party of 10, so we made a reservation, but there was no need to do so. The ambiance is nice, but the food quality was okay. Staff seemed a little short handed, but not sure why since we were their only party."

"I was a bit skeptical because the restaurant still had reservations during a huge conference, when many other restaurants were booked. When we arrived, there were very few people, which made it a bit more concerning. However, the experience was very satisfactory - the food and drinks were good, service prompt and attentive and decor was appropriate. Someone in the group commented that it looks like it had a major uplift since the last time he was there, so maybe the restaurant is trying to revamp."

"We were having a very good time the food was excellent however I was very upset that when we got the bill there was an 18% Gratuity charge already built in. We were only two people and no where on the reservation nor the menu did it say they would build in this service fee. I thought it was very dishonest to try and sneak this in, most people probably didn't even look that closely at the bill since it was Valentines day and no one wants to look like a cheap skate. I will never go there again. The waiters service was not worth the $32 dollar tip."

"Dined at Oro for Valentines dinner and was very pleased. Server was attentive but not intrusive. Five course meal was timed perfectly, and food was delicious. Had several different martinis at the bar afterwards and all were perfectly made. I will be back!"

"The food at the Thanksgiving buffet was good but the service we received was terrible. Our waiter was extremely slow in clearing away our plates and was it took forever to get a refill our water, coffee and tea. The desserts were nice to look at the the taste was rather bland, the lemon meringue pie was too sweet and was lacking in lemon flavor and the cookies tasted like cardboard. I would go back next year and hope we do not get the same waiter."

"We had to travel on Thanksgiving day so we wanted a family-friendly experience with our kids before we had to board a plane. Oro provided that experience and then some. We were able to eat a great Thanksigiving lunch, then walk across the street to the Alamo and explore. It was perfect. Thanks for providing such a great experience.
