After my first day of work in San Francisco I took myself out for a treat, looking for a simple steak dinner but I ended up having the BEST MEAL I've had in a long time. The food was exquisite and the steak left me speechless. The ambiance is impeccable and the service was divine, I wouldn't just recommend you try Osso, I would insist!

Special occasion place. Dark and sexy, with wonderful attentive service! Roasted Crab a little dry, but Branzino, Brussel sprouts & Yellowtail Carpaccio was amazing. The regular bread is just as good as the cheese bread, you can’t go wrong with either.

Very delicious meal. Every dish was perfectly executed and tasty. Asparagus soup highly recommend. Also, the carpaccio YUMM. We had their OSSO bone-in filet mignon and the petite filet-- both tender and medium-rare as requested. We finished off with a wonderful dessert, creme brulee cheesecake. Ambiance and service was equally PERFECT!

Food was excellent, my steak was cooked perfectly and my wife loved her fish. The food was great but the service was the highlight of the evening. The server was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive without hovering.

This restaurant is so distinctive, like a Poirot movie. The setting demanded a martini for me. From the moment you enter to when you leave, the service is impeccable. The atmosphere is classy but not stuffy. We shared a bone-in rib eye that was cooked to perfection.

Osso has gone down hill, the portions of stake are much smaller, the host was discourteous the menu has eliminated many sides.
The overall restaurant probably will be out of business soon.

The ONLY problem, which may be typical of all restaurants as they reopen, was a condensed menu....because of reduced staff and reduced cooks. Our waiter even made our drinks. But some of our favorite dishes were not on the menu. And there was notice of new ownership in the window, which even the wait staff didn't know what was going on.

The second time here in 3 weeks. Excellent in all ways. Old school service. Big band soundtrack. Best sides in any SF steakhouse. Not a huge steak selection during post pandemic transition--but the bone in filet--you heard me--filet--is fantastic. Last night I went with the Kurobuta pork tomahawk (!). it's brined and arrived perfectly cooked. Juicy with ribs that were impossible not to pick up in hand to enjoy every last bit. Fortunately the booths are private enough that i didn't make a spectacle of myself.

Fantastic! Food as outstanding as we remembered from a visit several years ago. Service was spot on. Attentive but not intrusive. Even on a busy night, we never felt rushed or that our waiter had other things to attend to. Nice buzz to the restaurant but not loud enough to interfere with our conversations.

Our server made the difference, it’s a fact well known that the order will be perfect, it’s truly in its own class in that regard.
He remembered little things we spoke about, he lives near as do we, spoke about his family owned little store, navigating the Covid environment and just a all around genuine guy.

A Nightmare on California street.

All kidding aside, Osso Steakhouse truly was a nightmare from start to finish. We went on a Friday night and the restaurant was only at 50% occupancy. Not too crowded, therefore you’d expect stellar service. I’d be remiss in telling you that the service was the least of their problems. The ambiance was really nice (old school steakhouse) and we were given a very nice table which we requested so thank you for that. We greeted the host who was aloof and somber as if we walked into the local morgue. During eating, our waiter forgot a few details that we requested and we had to nudge him a few times which spoiled our dinner. He was just so nonchalant about it which was astonishing. We ordered the filet and the ribeye. The steaks were cooked okay but they both were completely bland and had no flavor. I seriously once had a better filet cooked on a frying pan in the jungles of Guatemala. No joking, the steaks were terrible and tasted like they came out of a fryer. The one bright spot was the sweet server who walked around so jovial as if he was a cartoon character in a Star Wars canteen. He really was sweet and attentive. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant that is pretty expensive.
