Osso is a fantastic restaurant and we make sure to go there any time we have a special celebration. This one was for the graduation of my son from Berkeley, and it could not have been better! The service, atmosphere, staff and food was awesome. Highly recommend it!
Great Restaurant and Always Consistent. Roberto is a great server.
This is a step back in time into old school elegance and service. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and more than happy to accommodate you. It seems the staff has been there forever and are happy in their environment. That truly says a lot about business. Although it’s quite elegant, it is in no way stuffy or pretentious. You can wear whatever you want from very dressy to casual t-shirt and jeans. They will make you feel welcome and treat you just the same.
This isn’t my first nor my last visit. I look forward to visiting again to sample more items on their menu. The cheese skillet starter is a must. The second course Caesar salad is probably the best we’ve ever had with just the right amount of dressing and the pesto base which is really a nice addition. Their toy box tomatoes and beet salads were also quite nice and really the perfect size. Everything from the porterhouse to the petite filet mignon to the salmon to the filet mignon cheesesteak to the 4 square Kobe cheeseburgers are cooked to perfection with just the right seasoning. As far as sides go, all were quite good, but the creamed corn, brussel sprout chips and crispy roasted potatoes were everyone’s favorites. None of us have ever had creamed corn like that... it’s quite addicting. The icing on the cake was dessert, so make sure you save room for that. They’re happy to pack up whatever you don’t want to eat, so you have room for dessert and lunch the next day. We shared the creme brûlée cheesecake and vanilla panna cotta which were sinfully devine.
Oh and I can’t forget to mention the free valet parking with a smile, which is absolutely amazing in the city!
Overall everything was perfect and never rushed.... the food, ambiance, service, noise level and free valet parking. If I had to find something to complain about, I’d say it was a little disappointing that the chef wouldn’t chop the wedge salad, but I can live with that since the other salads were quite delicious.
We were greeted very nicely when we showed up early for our reservation and were sat down immediately. Our waiter was prompt in getting our order and food brought out quickly. He had a wonderful sense of humor. Food was 5 star terrific, and portion size was spot on. Will be back in the near future Osso's is Ohhhh so good👌🏾
The food was fabulous and the decor was pleasant on the eyes. I enjoyed the cheese bread, crab cakes and the steak was big, juicy and tender. The only pause was the service which was spotty for a high end restaurant. I would however go back again.
It was my birthday, went with a couple friends and the server was outstanding! Dinner was delicious!
Our experience at Osso had always been excellent!
The steak was cooked to perfection. Everything was delicious. Our server was incredible. He was very attentive. Our glasses were never empty. Great personality.
Excellent service. Amazing food. This is our fourth time here. They never disappoint us. We’ll keep coming back again and again
Food was delicious...don’t go on a Friday night if you want good service! The service was unpredictable, waiter was unprofessional. I guess they were short staffed that night. I have been a few times and the service was much better. Our out of town guest stated our waiter was rude and condescending. They had the misfortune of having a wedge salad dropped on their backs. The salad mess was poorly cleaned and they went home wear salad dressing. If you must have Ossos...order take out.
We were seated in a quiet cabana, which was a huge plus given that there were 3 octogenarians in our group. That was very thoughtful of them. We all raved about the exquisite flavors of each entree - seabass, scallops and a salad. I'm a vegetarian and enjoyed all the side options. There was at least one vegetarian entree besides salads that I did not order. All entrees come a la carte, so we also shared 2 side dishes between 4 diners. They charge $1 for bread, which was odd for such a classy place. The staff were extremely attentive - till the end when we needed our check to get to a concert at Grace Cathedral. The valet allowed us to leave our car parked with them - gratis! Just be sure to get your ticket validated and retrieve your car by 10pm.
One of the best experiences. From the food to the service everything was perfect. Will definitely return.
Great steaks and great service. Always a nice spot for a special night out.
The location and ambiance of the restaurant was wonderful. The staff were pleasant and courteous. The cheese bread was delicious. I ordered a rib eye and I was extremely disappointed. I asked for well done and it had to be taken back. It was still not well done but I didn't complain. The steak had so much fat on it that I couldn't even enjoy my steak. I took it home but ultimately threw it away, it was way too much fat on it. A total waste of $65.Also it was our Anniversary which I put on the reservation. There was no acknowledgment or desert or anything.
Ordered the bone in Ribeye medium well and was burnt on the outside and very pink on the inside! The worse part was that the steak was so tough that I couldn't cut it with the steak knife! Had to send it back and ordered the bone in filet mignon. This steak was cooked perfect and taste delicious but had to wait another 40 minutes to get it! By the time I got it my date's steak was very cold.
Th to the bar for a drink to wait for our table. Table was ready about an hour later, hostess called us on mobile phone despite standing less than six feet away. They would not let us roll bar bill over to the table, and as we were paying the hostess walked the six feet to the bar to tell us in person she could not hold the table and most of our table should go sit while one remained to pay the bill that could not be paid at the table.
The table they could not “hold” turned out to be about six feet in the other direction because we were sat in the bar, rather than dining room or lounge. Waiter seemed friendly and competent but food didn’t arrive for another hour (two hours after reservation time), at which point we got our steaks and sides cold, and our appetizers had never been served at all.
So we left. The manager apologized and didn’t try to charge us; I guess that’s something.
We've been to Osso several times in the past, and all were great occasions. We came back and expected something similar, but they were clearly off this night. The hostess seems unable to adapt and is clearly not a people person, despite this being her job. She seemed clueless when I asked her whether my table was ready. We had to wait longer than expected despite being there a half-hour early for our reservation. Once seated, it was clear that the night was going to be long. All of the tables around us seemed frustrated and were not getting their drinks or food on time. Our server took longer than normal to get to our table, and sure enough, our food took a long time. Once we got it, my lamb chaps and my wife's filet mignon was good, but my Mom's and her partner's Bone-in NY steak were tough, not tender and clearly a lower quality steak than what was being sold. We are sad because we love this steak house and we hope they will perform better in the future. Everyone has a bad night some times.
We ordered an Old Fashioned and it just tasted like liquor with an orange peel in it, no bitters or sugar. The quality of the ribeye is not good - tasted like it has been marinated with baking soda to make it more tender. Crab was tasty. The service was okay. The server checked in with us a couple times. The table was small so we had to request for the entrees to come out one at a time. Not much space between tables so servers bumped into the back of my chair a few times and I felt like I was eating in a very cramped space.
Osso was awesome I had planned everything on the menu everything came out great the Calamari Friti is way more than peoples calamari the steaks were amazing the crab in that sauce were awesome the cheesy bread was great that beat salad with the hearts of palm very nice and the crème brûlée cheesecake oh my God
You gotta order the mussels as an appetizer! So good!
Dip the bread in the garlic butter sauce... amazing!
I have to say I was a little leery about going to Osso because of the reviews that I read and 3.5 stars on Yelp but I'm so glad I went to food was awesome service was amazing drinks were delicious I couldn't have asked for a better experience! thank you so much!
The steaks are truly outstanding!! Our waiter, Tom, took incredible care of us. Looking forward to returning.
It was our valentines dinner i’d like to start with. I am a Carnivore, I eat a Ribeye EVERYDAY literally for the last 1.5 years. This was a large 30 oz ribeye split between me and my partner. The LEANEST driest ribeye that I’ve ever had. It came out completely raw at first, we had to send it back, the second time it came out it was medium rare even though we ordered it medium. But thank god it was medium rare because it was so tough and dry. Service was sub par for a fine dining restaurant. All together it was a rough experience definitely will not be going back or recommending.
I wish the parking lot said it was for the restaurant customers. I parked in nearby parking lot for $40
Delicious food and drinks, romantic setting, not too loud. Downside is the bathrooms --you have to take an elevator and they're kind of isolated from the restaurant. FREE valet tho, perfect for the area becuase you will not find parking anywhere.
Not bad but definitely not worth the money at this place for this kind of money you can enjoy true fine dining elsewhere however food was decent but nothing to remember and we waited about 15-20 minutes for our table even with having a reservation.last but not least I was most definitely not impressed with the service of our waiter he only came to check on us 1 time and brought us cold food and didn’t have the most pleasant attitude about waiting our table of 2. I would not recommend
Great food and service. But they put us at a horrible table in the corner with a draft
Great steaks! Great for date night! Cool old school vibe with a modern twist.
Great Food, Great Service, and had a Great time. Will be returning soon.
We were seated in what seemed like the reject table - back, dark, corner of the dining room. It took a while to be greeted and recognized that we were at our table. The food was room temperature at best and the server although nice, kept trying to up sell us even though on several occasions we had stated that we did not want a soup or salad. The Oysters were top notch though and some of the freshest that I have ever had.
This was one of the worst steak house experiences I have ever had. We had reservations here 3 weeks. We had to ask two people to waited on after waiting 15mins after being sat. Then the guy made us feel uncomfortable as well. We ordered drinks and our meal all at once. We watched our meal roll in on a cart on the other side of the room and sit for 15 mins. Our steaks were so cold by the time we got them. As well as both sides. No one came to ask how our meal was until the very end. For spending almost $300 on dinner I would have expected a little better. Probably the most disappointing dinners we have ever had.
The food quality was just OK. The bone in filet mignon was decent, but I have had better at other high end steak houses. The garlic noodles and Mac and cheese I would not get again. It was not at all what I expected, and not in a good way. The bread was good, but kind of odd to charge $1.50 for it at a high end restaurant. Ended the meal with the cheese cake and crunch cake, both of which I have to say are not good. Did not taste fresh, almost as if it’s been left out. The service was decent. The server was very nice, but he was serving many tables and did not tend to us as often.
I would rate this a solid 3 star experience. A little disappointing for the price, but the complementary valet, friendly servers and neat quiet ambiance makes it a little better.
Amazing steaks great drinks awesome atmosphere
First time for us and will not be the last time. Great food and drinks. Spent time with Bo in the bar while waiting for our table who was an excellent representative of a very fine restaurant.
Osso doesn't disappoint. We booked our evening dinner for four and was served perfectly done filet mignons with delicious sides. Can't wait for our next visit.
A perfect dining experience for date night, with a perfect medium rare filet mignon.
The stake was so delicious, a good atmosphere, free valet parking. I want to eat petit filet mignon again!
Amazing food, exceptional service! Nothing to improve...
The food was good! Cheese bread was my favorite. The bone in ribeye was very big. We shared the ribeye and crispy vegetables.
The Service was excellent and the food is amazing. All staff very professional. The wait staff are knowledgeable and menu pricing and great with recommendations
