My boyfriend and I visited the Orange Room after having heard some positive feedback from friends. Sad to say we were very dissapointed. We started with drinks, glass of red sangria for me, beer for the bf. The sangria was probably the worst sangria I have ever had yet before I ordered it the server had said it was fantastic. If you have ever had real sangria, you know it should be full of fruit, good red wine with a little hit of brandy. What I received looked like kool-aid with one orange slice in it. It tasted awful with a hard chemical taste- must have been some type of mix. I asked for lemon and lime wedges to dampen the taste yet it was still a loss.
For dinner I had the salmon quiche and seafood fettucine for my bf. My dinner was OK- the caesar salad had mandarin orange slices in it (weird) and the quiche was oily on top as it was obviously pre-baked and then re-heated somehow (my guess is microwave). My boyfriend's dinner was down right awful. The pasta was over cooked mush, drowned in a creamy, cheesey, oil slicked sauce and the seafood (the little there was) was not properly cooked. One of the mussles had barely opened, tell tale sign that it was bad, however it was seved to him anyway!
The servers were friendly enough, yet were not overly concerned that we were not having a nice meal.
The ambiance is cold, with awkward tables and chairs that did not look clean or inviting.
Needless to say we will not be returning, which is sad, seeing we were looking forward to having a nice restaurant close to our house!
