    What an experience- i think that not only the food but the amazing staff earned life-long foodie- clientele of Victoria and I!! Paola, Daniel, and Ramzy all treated us with utmost care and love!! We were one of the first in at opening on our wedding day! They were quick to find out about this event and we were so happy to end our important day at Osso. We took awhile deciding which restaurant to end this day at out of a few and feel like there wouldnt of been any other restaurant making this special day as special as it was. I hope management and the owners see this review and appreciate the team that worked on 4/24/24. We are forever grateful! And you’ll see us again.. Michael and Victoria <3

    The atmosphere was very nice and quaint. The food was delicious, bone in fillet mignon was perfect and asparagus was amazing and the kale caesar salad was delish! The service was excellent and we felt right at home. So much more food to try, so I’ll definitely be back. The location is perfect, dinner then off to the venue next door literally!

    Our service was excellent! I really enjoyed my meal (I had the Branzino fish - excellently prepared), but I was limited due to my allergies (onion & garlic family). The cheese bread looked delicious, but I couldn’t indulge and it was a bit much for ‘just’ my husband. Next time, I’ll try a steak!

    Excellent customer from the host, our server and other staff assigned to our table. Host was welcoming and friendly. Dishes and sauces recommended by our server were delicious! The other wait staff made sure our water glasses were full, and cleared our tables timely. The location of the restaurant is perfect! We saw a concert at the Masonic which was next door; didn’t need to rush. We’ll definitely return to Osso’s.

    Excellent steakhouse. Prices are high, but it is a steakhouse, so that is to be expected. We shared the ribeye, which was excellent. Loved the cheese bread, but don't fill up, because the steak is so good. Loved the bar area, which has two giant Tamara De Lempicka reproductions, and has a nice art deco vibe going. The restaurant itself is a bit bland, with the exception of the green neon lighting the booths. We went on a Monday so it was nice and quiet. I hate loud restaurants, so quiet is appreciated. There is no valet parking, so you have to get lucky with that. It is directly across from Grace Cathedral, so parking could be tricky.

    We went on a Saturday evening at 9:00 pm. We ordered the filet. It was just ok. We order mashed potatoes and mac & cheese for our sides. Everything was very mediocre and had no seasoning. The best part of the meal was the cheese bread, but that took at least 20 minutes to even get to our table. We would not return.

    Overall a fantastic experience! Everything was top notch! Had reservations and were seated right away. Service was great...very attentive! My guests and I had pork chops and steaks...cooked perfectly and delicious! We shared our sides of au gratin potatoes, carrots, and creamed spinach...wonderful! The cheese bread appetizer was amazing!! If your seeing a show at the Masonic Auditorium...its on the same block so that was convenient. A parking garage is also on the same block which is great because the street parking is non-existent. We will definitely be back!

    Everything was fantastic. We ordered the nightly special: a 10 oz NY steak. It was wonderful. Scalloped potatoes and creamed spinach also delish. Service is good because they know not to bother you when your friend is in the middle of a good story. (In my opinion, this is the highest level of service and they do it well.) Restaurant decor is understated and beautiful. Noise levels remain are low (even when the restaurant is crowded). Definitely make reservations because sometimes Osso is full and you won't get in. Oh yes, the bar is really good too. It's a cosy, neighborhood bar and sometimes they have bar tables available for drinks and snacks.

    Steaks were thin and both were overcooked - we ordered them medium rare and they were medium+ to medium well. Had to send them both back which I hate to do. Of course, the new steaks came back rare as if we don't know what medium rare looks like and are uninformed restaurant guests. Ate them anyway. Service is always professional and excellent. Ambiance is why I come back despite the fact that overcooking my steak and then getting rare steak has happened more than one time in the past 7-8 visits. I will probably have to make this a cheeseburger trip rather than continue to be disappointed in the steaks.

    Paula the hostess was incredible! Riley our waiter was fabulous! The food stunning! Get the au gratin potatoes with your filet! You will not be disappointed! Such lovely cocktails in a space that was beautifully decorated and a place of both the past, present and into the future. Make sure that you rideshare as the parking was a bit difficult but worth the walk! Thank you so much Osso for an incredible night!

    Nice old San Francisco setting across from Grace Cathedral. It was great to come into SF on a week night for dinner but having to park next door at the Masonic for $45… well. The service was superior, attentive, smart and patient. The menu was not broad enough for non beef eater’s heaven but everyone managed primarily because the specialty drinks were great! The salads, sides and desert were delicious. My medium rare bone in NY was just a fraction over but it was still moist, juicy and flavorful.

    Osso did a fantastic job accommodating us when BART made us 50 minutes late. We were able to have our cocktails, bottle of wine, appetizers, and entrees all fast enough for us to enjoy dinner and still make our show next door at the Masonic. Really appreciate being well taken care of, thank you!
