It wasn’t open. After confirming my reservation thru Open Table - we drove to the restaurant and walled up to closed door and lights off. No signs at all. Thankfully some other restaurants on the square were open.

It was an amazing experience, Mayra was a great server and the food was incredible. The short rib was amazing, as well as the shrimp and grits.

All the dishes were top notch! Delicious! And the service, also!! Our waitress definitely added to our pleasant experience! Please disregard the noise level rating… ( your app wouldn’t let me skip it) there was a festival going on in the Plaza, otherwise it would have been very pleasant out back!

We had such a great experience! There for a business meeting and some social time. Sat at the front table with the windows pushed back. One of the best seats in town. The menu was just what we wanted, and the team of Megan at the bar and Myra as our server was incredible - they both did a great job at a busy time, provided excellent hospitality and made it all look effortless. True stars of service.

Friendly service, interesting ambiance. A few menu items we looked forward to were not available, maybe covid so was ok. All dishes came at one time for all four diners instead of spaced so a little cumbersome. Previous diners' food on ground under chairs had to be kicked away. Interesting menu. Had expected better.

The service, food and ambience were terrific. Tables were spaced outside nicely. Felt very comfortable dining here. Our server was great - there when we needed him, unobtrusive when we didn't. We were not rushed and enjoyed a wonderful lunch.

Chef was our favorite when he was at St Francis Winery, so we had high expectations. OSO is more casual, with so excellent plate options. My Miso Butter Salmon … which is made up of three of my favorites … was over the top, in a bad way. I requested a saucer, which I filled with the pool of butter. Chef pushed the flavor far too far, completely overpowering the otherwise perfect salmon.
Tina, the server, gets great reviews from others, as her service is indeed excellent. BUT repeatedly calling my wife “my love,” and the two of us “my friends,” was, like the salmon, far to far over the top.
Then, describing dessert of roasted berries as “strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries,” when arrived not a single strawberry, only 3 blackberries, and a ton of blueberries. She cheerfully explained that mine was the last serving of the night, and that they were now doing peaches. My opinion of a great server: she should have given me the option up front, as we would have chosen peaches.
So … disappointing a bit, my love.

Shrimp and grits were the bomb. Shrimp taco salads were a little tangy, just right, and huge shrimp.

We were immediately seated in a nice area of the restaurant. Quick attention from our friendly and bubbly server. The blood orange margarita was very good, then had burrata, oysters, and deviled eggs, all very tasty. Great experience!

Service was excellent. The burger was delicious. Fingerling potatoes not a good replacement for fries maybe offer a small green salad as an add on. The shirmp and grits my husband ordered were amazing.

Overall very good. The only problem was that our $25 reward card couldn’t be used because the staff knew nothing about how to use it. Funny that we picked the restaurant and time based on the fact that the reward was able to be used at that time. Actually not so funny. What good are these rewards if they can’t be used?

We really enjoyed the hummus and rockefeller oysters however we were really disappointed that the burger wasn't on the dinner menu. One of the deciding factors of our trip to Napa was to stop by here after our wine tasting and get some burgers.
