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.
