My wife was about to celebrate a milestone birthday and I wanted to find a place with a great atmosphere, wonderful food and a good wine list. We have a lot of favorites in Iowa City to choose from; she chose Orchard Green. It was a perfect choice as we were able to have a table where it was quiet enough to have a conversation - and I could wish her happy birthday over a glass of champagne before eating.

She chose the Braised Duck and I ordered my favorite dish on their menu: Bouillabaisse. It gave me a chance to reminisce about our honeymoon in France - and a trip to Marseille that we made on a whim to have Bouillabaisse for lunch. We did that and we changed our entire itinerary into a honeymoon along the French Mediterranean - great memories to share on her birthday.

Orchard Green has valet parking (free) and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful meal and a perfect evening- and we'll be back.

From the valet, to the wait staff, and ambiance, the experience is always great! The food in particular is amazing. They have some of the best vegetarian options in Iowa City!

We always enjoy the hummus appetizer. The flavors of hummus vary and are unique. The chicken bucatini is one of my favorites. It was delicious tonight. We tried the blueberry creme brûlée and chocolate torte. The creme brûlée was a huge serving and was quite enjoyable. The sauces with the torte were very nice. I enjoy the dining room for a nice dinner with friends or my husband, but the lounge is a great spot for bringing the kids where I can still get a special meal in a more relaxed atmosphere.
