    Everything we ordered was fantastic! Corking fee is $35, well worth bringing your favorite bottle of wine.

    Food is good, we must have gone on a busy busy busy night because it took them 40 minutes to BRING WATER to our table, not to mention an additional 20 minus for our food to be ready. If it wasn’t for that 5 stars no question. Will deff go again to see if they can redeem themselves.

    The food was very tasty - we had burgers and branzino. We were thinking, however, that it should have been more special of a dinner overall for the price, and at least bread and butter served or something. Branzino serving was small and burger was a bit ordinary although very tasty. Location of restaurant was good.

    This place runs like a well oiled machine. The steak was absolutely excellent as were the sides and dessert service was very attentive, no complaints at all. Word of advice, do not walk here if you are coming from Union Square. These hills will take you out.

    Service and quality of vine and food are great, excellent. The steak was exceptionally good. The atmosphere and the ambient very inviting and I felt very comfortable. I give the restaurant 5 Stars ⭐️ and a plus. As soon as I am back in San Francisco, I will of course go there for dinner.

    I scheduled a reservation as a date for my boyfriend and I, we proceeded to be placed in the very back of the restaurant and didn’t receive drink service for over 20 minutes after seating. Another 15 minutes past we decided on ordering when we were asked for our appetizer order. We had the lamb chops, a fillet mignon, parmesan brussel sprouts, and asparagus all sides were mushy and overly seasoned with nothing but citrus. The lamb chops were a 60/40 mix of fat to actual edible meat and the fillet was a completely different cut of meat than what was advertised. After this experience neither us nor any of our friends will be dining here and we will be sure to amend anyone else’s recommendations of this restaurant.

    My first time visiting Osso, and I hadn't realized it had been open for 8 years. Bar tender was friendly and attentive. Restaurant was well appointed, clean and comfortable. Our waiter was cheerful and offered great service. Food was delicious (Filet, Branzino, Oysters, and delicious cheese bread), prices were reasonable, and also a nice wine selection. I'll be back!

    Enjoyed a pre show recently. Starter Caesar wasn’t as good as past visits. Tried the lamb chops as a steak alternative this time and was not disappointed…very tasty. Side good as a split and plenty of food overall. Service was excellent.

    Despite reservations, seated at table in bar area. Service was friendly and not rushed. Filet was tasty, creamed spinach was warm, but could’ve been warmer. Cocktails were reasonably priced for the city and well made. French onion soup was not salty, but could’ve used more heat, onions, and more distinct broiled cheese crust finish. Shared a soup, a salad, bread, bone in filet, asparagus, and spinach between two. 5 cocktails, an espresso and a scoop of vanilla. Full, but not uncomfortable. But, tab was $236 without tip. No parking- plan accordingly, but conveniently located for events at Grace or Masonic. Will go again, but will probably share a burger, salad, fries, and get cocktails.

    The evening was spectacular!! We had arrived in San Francisco after four glorious days in Sonoma and Napa and were looking for a restaurant with a great steak! The go-to big name places were full so we decided to try Osso…it was so amazing!! I can’t remember our waiter’s name but he was out of this world! So personable, knowledgeable, funny, attentive…just A+++ We started with the crab cakes which may well have been the best we’ve ever had! So much crab and so little filler and the remoulade was perfection! We each had the bone in filet (we’ve never had a bone in filet!) and again, may have been the most perfectly cooked medium rare steak ever! We paired it with roasted Brussel sprouts and the gratin potatoes and a fabulous Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon. There are not enough ways to say how great this meal was!! If we come back to San Francisco, we’ll come back to Osso for sure!!

    Best overall meal we've had for a very long time. Everything was absolutely the best from the salad and shrimp cocktail to the filet mignon and the melt in your mouth chocolate hazelnut cake and the coffee and port to top it of. Best of all, we brought our own wine because the wine prices here are sky high and they didn't even charge us the $35 corkage fee. ( Or they were just being nice because we dropped a lot of $ on the whole dinner) .

    No big complaints. The NY strip was cooked perfectly. The ceviche was delicious and the shrimp cocktail was impressive. We had a specialty crème brûlée for dessert which was good, and the carrot cake which was more nuts and raisins than cake and frosting. Service was good once it got started but we sat for about 20 minutes without water or acknowledgement. Why 4 stars instead of five? Service delay as indicated above, and the food was good but not excellent. I would also have liked to see more than one chicken option on the menu but I do realize that this is a steakhouse. You will enjoy your meal here. Please try it for yourself.

    Service was professional and friendly. Wedge salad is under dressed and does not come with blue cheese crumbles though menu says it does. Steaks come covered in some sort of odd goo - butter maybe? Sautéed spinach wasn’t bad though a little too much like creamed spinach, wasn’t garlicky enough even though we specified extra garlic. Drinks are very small for the price. It was fine - we won’t go back. There are much better options in the city.
