How do you decide what to order at an unfamiliar restaurant?

When you are visiting an upscale restaurant for the first time, what do you order, and/or, how do you decide what to order?

Do you order the specials?

Do you ask the wait staff for their recommendations?

I am about to try three great restaurants 3-star or better, and don't want to feel overwhelmed by the menu choices. I am going to look at the menus online but am conscious that the menus change.

Any suggestions?
