Me and my other half decided to splurge a little (a lot for these prices) for date night, we were disappointed. I only gave them a three because it was clean and inviting. The photos I loaded are what you get and even that doesn't taste anywhere as good as it looks. This was all in the "eating with your... More

I will start off the review by giving them the benefit of the doubt because it was Valentine's day so it was busy. But then again, when restaurants try to stuff in as many people as possible with inflated prices from the norm in short periods of time the end result really can be mediocre. I ordered surf and turf,... More

I have frequented this restaurant since it opened and before when it was located further south on Commercial St (European Inn)...the location is great, the service always good/great. Food and prep are excellent mostly with the occasional 'good' but should have been better...needless to say but, after 20 years of dinning here I find it all worthwhile!

We absolutely loved this place.We shared the Tex Mex appetizer. The meat was tender and it was perfectly seasoned. I had the duck special and my husband had the flat iron steak special. We shared a bottle of good wine and really enjoyed the evening. The food came good and hot and the service was terrific. If you like Benttly's... More

We are in Salem a lot so keep looking for high quality restaurants. Orupa meets the test. My wife had the pork chop and I had the espressos coated scallops. Both excellently presented and exceptionally good taste. My wife is gluten-intolerant and they adjusted both dishes. I could not see a difference. Scallops were perfectly cooked. I had one of...

Went to Orupa Restaurant thinking this was going to be a wonderful dinner. Was I ever disappointed. The service was extremely slow, food was undercooked/ steak was way over done and the remaining entree was terrible. Price was costly for what we ordered and the atmosphere. I won't go back.

Another great meal with friends. The menu offers great selection with several specials every night. Bruce makes the best blood orange martinis ever. Hans and chefs do a great job for those who appreciate unique food and willing to pay for quality.

Sorry Orupa Restaurant but it would be a stretch to rate you a 3. Were excited to spend an evening with a high ranking city official and his wife at your restaurant for the first time. Walked in to a wonderful atmosphere and the excitement went even higher. We were seated quickly but everything after that slowed. The portions were... More

Orupa Restaurant has some of the finest food I've had in a long time! The smoked salmon appetizer was amazing - especially the sauce! I'm a scallop snob and the espresso seated scallops were some of the best I've ever eaten! The portions were generous and prices very reasonable. Service was very friendly and efficient. I can't wait to go... More
