It was our 15 year anniversary... everything was great except we sat in the long booth ... at a two top table against the wall with another couple right next to us! Not too romantic 🙃

We enjoyed the early dining menu and cocktails after a local round of golf. It was our first visit and it didn’t disappoint. The beet salad was one of my favorites. We will definitely return.

Ombra is one of our go to restaurants for special occasions. We found the prices a little high on our most recent visit. The device was ok but we had to request bread for the table. The cocktails were very good!

We went here this visit for Valentines Day. Our service and food was a good as usual. Only issue was everything was in high speed. Everything came out so fast we felt like we were dining in a fast food restaurant. Didn’t have a second drink because dinner was over. Kitchen or server needed to slow down. In and out in 50 minutes. Not as relaxing as I would have hoped.

FABULOUS in every way.
- Great welcome by all staff.
- Outstanding server (Ned) who offered excellent recommendations and made ordering a smooth & personalized process (He's a fun & upbeat guy, too.)
- Elegant atmosphere, yet casual enough for dining on a regular basis - We had a lovely, intimate table.
- Fantastic menu - range of offerings to suit every taste. We ordered the two specials - veal chop -branzino - superbly prepared with a beautiful presentation. (This chef definitely knows what he/she is doing.)
- As we departed, every staff member we passed thanked us for coming and/or wished us a nice evening. (When is that last time that has happened?!?!) What a well-managed restaurant.
Best meal we have had in months. Now our favorite Hilton Head spot - HIGHLY recommend OMBRA.

Manny our waiter did a good job but could have been more attentive. Place was packed so maybe assigned too many tables. Osso Bucco special was excellent as was the halibut. Pear and Gorgonzola salad was plentiful and tasty. Odd for an Italian restaurant that does not offer a Caesar salad.

Everything was wonderful. Prompt service and wait staff (Eddie) was great. We had the restaurant week menu and it was prepared very well. I've had other restaurant week menu's in the past at other restaurants and you could tell the meal was prepared by temporary chefs who didn't take pride in their food. Everything at Ombra was great!!!

Very well prepared food from apps to dessert. We went for restaurant week. Seafood salad appetizer portions were very ample. Aso Bucco was outstanding. My husband was a little disappointed in his veal dish as it was covered with vegetables, and he's not a vege lover, but the veal was great. Profiteroles excellent with a rich chocolate sauce. Waiter was attentive, but not overbearing.

The osso bucco was absolutely scrumptious and the creamy risotto to die for! The seafood salad was enough to be a meal and was so fresh and tender. A simple dressing allowed the seafood to shine! The Italian wine suggested was a perfect pairing. Just let the waiter know your taste and recommendations are great! Had to take most of my entree home (did not mind as reheated made a wonderful lunch) since I had to leave room for the scrumptious dessert! Definitely will return!

There was four of us and we ordered different items and all were excellent. Would recommend the lobster bisque& veal scallopini
