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.

Enjoyed the steak, the elimination of some favorite side dishes because of Covid resulted in "not as good as usual"..

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.

I indicated in the reservation that we were celebrating both my children’s birthdays and there wasn’t anything special offered. Why bother to inform the restaurant in advanced if it’s just going to be ignored?

I booked a reservation last week for mothers day, but had to reschedule it for the following Sunday due to unforeseen circumstances. What I though was a 7pm reservation was actually 6:30. I was mortified and a half an hour late. The staff was so nice about my mistake and took me to my seat with no fuss. We were taken care of by an awesome waiter. I wish I could recall his name, but we chatted about the joys of coffee on a cold San Francisco night. He was so attentive to our needs and ensured we were taken care of. The food was absolutely amazing. The service equally as amazing. Thank you Osso, for making my moms mother day celebration a great one. It has been an extremely tough year on our family, and the added pandemic was no help. This night out was exactly what my mother needed. She had an amazing night. We all did.

Waiter was very rude from start to end not sure if its because we had a larger party or because we were BLACK. My mother asked him a question and he answered her WHAT ? In a snobby attitude. Very distasteful and very unprofessional to pressure someone for a tip and say “ it doesn't hurt to tip” and then give a chuckle after I said no tip because he was receiving a tip from my uncle for the whole party. Whole experience here was nasty and distasteful

I have been a regular at Osso steak for years. The service was good as always. The only complaint would be about the menu. A lot of changes and it’s kind of smaller menu now. I hope they go back to the prior menu soon. Other than that. Always a good experience.

Amazing service, knowledgeable about the wine and made suggestions on their bourbon selection for my husbands predinner cocktail. We didn’t feel rushed at any point. The music was subtle. If you are looking for an amazing meal with the best steak in the city please try or come back to Osso.

Everything about the experience was exceptional. The cheesy bread we started with was like nothing I’ve ever had. It was outstanding, with a Caesar Salad and a nice Brunello...that would be an entire meal. Went from there to the yellowtail carpaccio - outstanding, unbelievably clean and fresh. Had the bone in filet medium rare, it was large, perfectly cooked, and delicious. As sides had the mushrooms and creamed spinach, which were outstanding, and the potatoes poached in olive oil and served in a dish with drawn butter with chives - best potato dish I’ve ever had. And, the service and atmosphere were top-flight. This will be my new, go to steakhouse.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with our adult daughter. Great food, excellent service, covid rules were followed. We three are fully vaccinated and have been looking forward to fine dining indoors. Osso was our first in 14 months! We live on Nob Hill and look forward to coming back. My husband loves the lamb chops and gets them every time. I love the salmon and my daughter had the fish crudo. We shared three vegetable sides and started with the hot cheesy bread. Delicious!

Very much enjoyed dinner at Osso. The filet mignon is truly exceptional. The Caesar salad was unusually good, and the cheesy bread and potatoes were both delicious additions to the meal. I would definitely return if my travels take me to Nob Hill again.

We came on an SF restaurant week. We will return even with their regular menu.
We love the old school art deco design inside.
Plenty of parking on Sunday by Grace Cathedral.

This was our first time out since last March and Osso did not disappoint. The filet mignon was perfectly prepared. Our server recommended a Russian River pinot, which paired very well. I found the salad dressing just a touch over salted but both salads were otherwise delicious. We ordered sides of Brussels sprouts and creamed spinach, both of which were fantastic.

Everyone we interacted with was very conscientious around Covid protocols. We were seated away from other diners and it sounds like most restaurant staff has been vaccinated.

Ribeye is too thick and tough. Half the thickness and remove the muscles/ligament, and it would be the perfect ribeye.

Fantastic. Everything was great. Only indoor dining but if you go early (before it gets busy) it feels very safe. They open at 5:30. Husband loved the Salmon & I loved the Brussels sprouts and we both loved the lightly creamed spinach. AMAZINGLY good food here always.

We have just been fully vaccinated and have resumed indoor dining. The food, service, and ambience were all outstanding. All staff were masked and diners were seated with plenty of distance. We like to have a cocktail before ordering food, and our server, Jake, was totally adaptable. He was always there when we needed him, without rushing us. Two sides were sufficient for 3 adults. Our daughter and my husband enjoyed the filets. I had delicious lamb. We chose mixed veggies and mushrooms for our sides. Definitely recommend.
