Been going to Casa Orinda for almost 47 years, straight out of college.  For years, it was my second home.  Was there last night with family from out of town. Gene was teriific, as usual, the food and the gun room was perfect!


I was introduced to Casa Orinda in the 80s, as a bus boy. I trained under Velva.  Each night a dinner.  I loved the half raviolis & half linguini, the capon picatta, the chicken Parmesan!  I feel the magnetism pulling me closer.  It's been 3 decades since I've had my favorite - Capon Avocado ( by Jairo Gomez ). I sure hope he passed along that recipe to his successor.   I can't hold out much longer.

The garlic bread on sundays!  The minestrone soup!  The gelato and mud pie. The ice in the men's bathroom!  The large fried chicken orders from Pink Floyd when they were on tour.  So many fine memories!   Everyone- ask for the Capon Avocado - maybe it will be on special.  See you soon

Tre manifique! My highest commendations to the Casa Orinda owners, staff and history.

Since coming to CA in 2001, I have been seeking out special places like yours to get a feel (and taste) of authentic early California. Your food is superb in every way, the staff is efficient and friendly, your tops in cleanliness, and the rustic western decor is authentic and tastefully done. It’s the complete package of a great dining experience.

Thank you for giving us this gift!

We began going to Casa Orinda just this year after a referral from a friend. Well, this weekend we had our 5th or 6th dinner here.

The food is fab, the decor is nastalgic, the place is great. Very professional service. We also LOVE the valet parking. Makes it all so much easier.

We absolutely love this place. I agree with an earlier post that the biscuits reign supreme!

While I was visiting from New York recently, my wife and I had dinner at your restaurant. We had the greatest time. The martinis were just perfect, we loved the atmosphere, the service was very good, and we loved the food. Not much left, is there?

My wife was crazy about the prime rib, and while I really enjoyed the fried chicken, for me the standout was the flaky, tender, delicious biscuit that came with it. It’s a simple thing, but oboy was it sublime. We don’t have those in New York. I’d love to know what makes it so delicate.
