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

Best higher end restaurant in Salem. Innovative meals using fresh herbs. Always beautiful presentation and delicious. Bruce is a fabulous waiter and makes the best drinks anywhere. He's very knowledgeable.

The decor needs an update and it needs a good deep clean. The menu's had food bits on them and were poor quality. The location is good and the happy hour was okay. We tried about six things and about three were decent. I think they may be used to not having much competition. I don't think we would go... More

We were quick to be seated. The restaurant is clean and very pretty. It's located near city hall and the library. The drink special of the night was mango martini with a sprig of rosemary. Not bad. Didn't seem to have much of any alcohol in it. Our food arrived promptly and as ordered. My dish was spinach with chicken... More

The staff was very friendly; the food came out very quickly; the food was high quality and great flavor; the OR wine was also very good. Good value on the portions. This is a very highly awarded restaurant--for good reason!

We stopped in for dinner and it was happy hour so we were able to get any of the small plates for half price. We had the Tex-Mex skirt steak with peppers and onions. Fabulous. For entrees my husband and I shared a fantastic Romano pizza and an asparagus/chicken/spinach salad. Both were great. My daughter had the pasta with smoked... More
