The service was excellent. The waiter and other staff moved in and out without any disruptions. We were placed in a Yurt like structure in a corner. We were five family members who could hang out together in the quiet of our own conversations. Steak was excellent except my new york cut was best near the bone.
Average, overall. Except for the price. Food was great, drinks ok, service lacking. Don't let the tablecloths and suited waiters fool you. We were seated in the first booth nearest the entrance. I'm not sure if it was the AC running or cold air coming from the open doors, but it was not a comfortable meal. Food was cold before we were finished eating because of the cold, blowing air. Server passed our table many times without offering another drink, although my glass had been empty nearly the entire hour we were there. No dessert for us, we were dying to get out of there. Free valet, good food. That's the best of it.
I made a reservation for 7 people for a business dinner. They gave us their small private room off of the bar area which allowed us to discuss business over dinner. Everything was great from pre-dinner drinks with the fabulous bartender to excellent food and service during dinner. I would definitely recommend for a business dinner.
Best meal out in a long time! Great service, amazing food... it was a pleasure and a real treat.
Everything was great - My ribeye was amazing! My only complaint is that they don't have baked potatoes, just dinky half baked potatoes. Overall a great steak joint, and I will go again.
Amazing food and service!
I was staying at a nearby hotel and was looking for a good steak. Very happy to have found Osso and was not disappointed in any way. Being a Sunday night, it was quiet but the restaurant was probably 70% full. The recommendations for the steak, soup and sides were on point. They got me a dessert which wasn't on the menu when I asked for ice cream, that made me very happy.
The New York steak was perfectly cooked, medium rare, the way it should be. I liked the way the juices were retained so that the steak wasn't dry. I can't remember the name of the wine, it was a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alexander Valley. Being alone, I ordered a glass and it was very good for a wine that's served by the glass.
I'll definitely return in future and would recommend Osso to friends.
Very expensive for what you get. Small portions, mediocre taste. The menu needs a revisit, and the waiter should have probably asked more questions. Won’t be back
Though pricey..food was excellent and the service was very good
We were promptly seated, the waiter came, introduced himself and offered us beverages. We enjoyed our delicious cocktails while we decided on our order. This is difficult because everything here is delicious!! Bone-in filet - OUTSTANDING!! Shrimp, mussels & crab appetizer - DELICIOUS. Mixed roasted veggies & potatoes - PERFECTION. Can't wait to go back.
My first time at Osso but my last. Got tickets to a concert next door at the Masonic and it seemed like a good idea to go to Osso before the show. I wouldn't hesitate to return in the future. Food was great as was the service.
Osso was the perfect place for a birthday celebration dinner before enjoying a performance next door at The Masonic. I'll definitely plan to come back to try more of the Chef's recommendations and enjoy another delicious evening on the town! Osso truly is a gem of SF!
Overall a very nice restaurant with all the touches you’d expect from a high end steak house. My husband and I had the bread, oysters, asparagus soup & twice baked potato. All was good. We also ordered and shared the porterhouse steak. Unfortunately, the filet was cooked well to medium well. I prefer my steak rare, but we went with the medium rare recommended by the restaurant. The flavor was good, but the meat was just so over cooked / well done and dry I couldn’t finish it. My husband’s New York was perfectly cooked which is what I would have expected from this restaurant . It was just such a disappointment on the filet and more or less ruined the meal.
we celebrated a birthday here, and really enjoyed the food. Great wine list, would recommend the fried olive appetizer. The crab bruschetta was delicious with flavor and could have been a one off, but the bruschetta bread was hard for the teeth. We all agreed the steaks were amazing. I recommend the surf and turf if you like crab with your steak. I had the amazing bone in ribeye which was enough steak for two people easily. drooling just thinking of that steak.
The food is always amazing and they did not disappoint.
If you want a date night with your significant other this is the perfect place to go. Also if you want the best Bone in Rib Eye steak in the city you must come here.
Great tasting food. Server was a bit awkward and didn't share his name once :/ The Ribeye is huge and delicious, enough to easily feed two people by itself. I would recommend getting it cooked medium vs medium rare. My wife enjoyed the pork chop. Kettle bread is lovely, soft and can easily serve four. The two of us only managed to cover half of what was provided. Great location if you're seeing a show next door at the Masonic Theatre.
We return every chance we are in town for the filet with the yummiest sauce ever. Osso never disappoints. Looking forward to the next time already.
Enjoyed our meal, the ambience, service and Bo the bartender!!!
Bad experience. We made reservations for 6:15, because were going to the show at 8. Checked in at 6:05 and were told to have a seat. At 6:25 I asked why are we still waiting, when half of the restaurant has available tables. The manager Tiffany ignored my question and said we will be seated when a table opens up. I said what was the point of making reservations when you are holding tables for whoever and we are waiting? We were finally seated at 6:45! We got our food at 7:15 and were trying to eat it as fast as we could. The food was very expensive and out of 6 dishes, only 1 was good. One of the sides was so bad that I actually had to send it back.
Great steaks and fresh seafood. I went with the signature cut, the bone-in filet and shared fresh Dungeness crab as an appetizer. Prime beef is a great foundation but the steak came out cooked med rare and retained it’s juiciness protected by a perfect sear. Freshness of the seafood was first rate and the preparation with garlic was delicious. I find them to be more consistent than a former sister restaurant in the city.
The service and ambience were very good; however, the food was ambivalent. The salmon and NY steak were tasty, but the calamari, wedge salad, mac and cheese and the salted caramel cake were lackluster. The deep-fried calamari, usually a favorite, was greasy. The wedge salad was not really wedge-like with little bleu cheese and nothing much else. Often wedge salads I’ve eaten, have had such accompaniments like crumbled bleu cheese along with creamy bleu cheese dressing, small diced tomatoes and fried diced bacon. Not this one. The gemelli mac and cheese was bland. The cheese sauce was watery rather than creamy - boring. The salted caramel cake had some good bites and some indifferent bites. Overall, I felt this dinner for two at $250 was definitely NOT worth the money.
Dinner was fabulous and the service was excellent.
great food, service and cocktails! we will be back
Veggies were burnt. Steak way undercooked took way too long for a cocktail. Reservations at 5 pm and restaurant was closed until 5 pm. (Missed out on drinks before meal) not likely to go back ever
Very nice clean place
Over all everything was Okay. Steak was okay not great ( bone-in rib-eye ) All the sides were great and the deserts fantastic. Service was very good and pleasant. We had our steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly but i have had the same cut at less expensive bay area restaurants and enjoyed them far more
If Osso calls its self a STEAK HOUSE they have to step up their game on their most expensive cut of meat ( disappointed )
If you eat here do your home work first maybe the other cuts of meat are better. An easy fix for this restaurant and i believe anyone who has eaten here recently would agree.... OSSA !! YOU NEED SHARPER STEAK KNIVES !
Went there on Saturday night, made reservation, we were there an hour earlier and bar is completely full, they seated us early which is a good thing. First thing first, asked for water, two glasses were cracked, asked for replacement, nothing happened, asked again, not showing up, and finally someone told us they are out of glasses, WTH, restaurant out of glasses?! We brought wines to the restaurant, asked for decanter, the old French speaking waiter took my wine and returned it with wine in the decanter, never see the bottle again. So unprofessional. Then the main attraction the STEAK, I ordered a bone in ribeye steak and comes with a iron wok, the steak is huge, at least 24 to 30 oz, looks ok, and because I am sharing with my son, and the steak wasn't sliced for share, and I used the knife provided, and oh boy, it took me a while to cut half steak out for my son, it hurts my wrist, steak is very chewy, and impossible to cut for my 12 yr old. He gave up after maybe couple slices. The steak has no flavor and tasteless. And we done with two bottle of wines and one more needed to open, after working hard with my steak (1/3 untouched) and found out the third bottle of wine remain uncork. We need to chase the waiter down to get the wine popped. Overall terrible experience, never go again.
Took a while to be seated with a dinner reservation but once we were seated our waiter was attentive and quick. I love the chorizo bread appetizer. I had the lamb for my entree and my boyfriend had the filet mignon steak sandwich. Meat was cooked to perfect temp. This was our 2nd time and we are still pleased.
The fillet mignon sandwich and fried onions were fantastic. Crab cake was very good
Great service! Exceptional food!
Love Chardonnay list they have !! My favorite !!
Menu is for every taste!!
While we were there there was 1. A guy who dined and dashed 2. A physical fight between diners 3. A verbal fight between other diners 4. Steak we could have cooked at home 5. Bland side dishes 6. They refused to swipe my card because their reader said chip malfunction. Any other restaurant would have swiped the card or manually entered it, since there was no actual problem with the card. Tried another card, same situation. Third card was the charm... the waitress was the best part, as she was very nice and helpful, but overall probably won’t come back.
Great steaks. The sides need improvement but probably the best steak I’ve had in SF.
The service is wonderful & the food is delightful
As good a steak as I have eaten anywhere from New York to Chicago to Denver to Los Angeles and points in between. Have been about 5 times: bone-in filet, rib steak, New York, salads and sides are all excellent. Service is excellent - prompt without a rush, professional, friendly. They have seafood and other things that look and smell great, just haven't given any of that a chance. Quality cocktails and good wine list - you can spend as much as you want. Interior design is nice but a bit sterile, but the food takes your mind off of it. You can have a private conversation and hear each other.
Outstanding food and service. One of the best steaks I have had in a long time! Would definitely go there again!
