Osso Steakhouse offers the steak lover the quintessential dining experience--Art Deco elegance, dry-aged steaks and premium cocktails. It's a romantic hideaway tucked in the landmark Gramercy Towers, next to the Masonic Auditorium on prestigious Nob Hill, near The Fairmont, Mark Hopkins and Huntington Hotels, and across the street from the stunningly majestic Grace Cathedral. At this time we are not offering valet parking, we suggest the garage at the Masonic Auditorium, Grace Cathedral garage, or street parking.

    Nice atmosphere and service. We ordered the Sea Bass, Rib Eye, and lobster mac and cheese as a side. Unfortunately, they all lacked flavor. May have just been an off night.

    This is definitely the place to go for the highest quality steaks. Their bone-in New York @$72 ala carte was outstanding as well as pricey. The bargain on the menu is the single lobster tail for $27. Service and atmosphere are also excellent.

    The food and atmosphere were amazing! My eyes are a bit sensitive, so I appreciated that there was light directly above our table. Our waitress gave good recommendations for wine, and she was professional with my slightly chaotic family as well haha.

    Date night for my husband and i - We ordered the lobster fondue as a starter and about halfway through, my husband bit down on something very hard and had to violently spit it out. Turns out to be a screw! See picture included. Outside of a “sorry” the waiter nor the bar manager came back to make sure my husband was okay, which he did have immediate pain in his tooth and jaw. We finished up, the bill came and surprisingly without an offer to comp any of the meal outside of the fondue. With a bit of a discussion about how this didn’t feel like an appropriate response to a potentially serious situation, bar manager said we could not have the restaurant managers contact information and if we thought my husband had been injured we would need to talk to their attorney. He then came back and comped our two glasses of wine and the side of potatoes. It wasn’t about the money and they didn’t make any effort to make sure our experience was rectified. We paid the remaining 180.00 and left.

    Even though it's a steakhouse, I ordered the scallops, which were superb. Our waiter was friendly yet very professional. And it's right next door to the Masonic Theater, so a win-win situation. A bit pricey, but very good food and service.

    I checked in with our group and we were seated right away, which was great. Everything took longer than expected. Items that were supposed to be hot were not. We were not offered bread. The food came on a stainless steel tray, which was strange. About 15 minutes into sitting there, the restaurant called and asked if we were on our way. Also strange. The bathroom was dirty and in an inconvenient location ( downstairs). The food was ok, not great. Other positives: great location and decor.

    The steak was delicious and so were the sides and cocktails. What really stood out was the wonderful hostess and waitstaff. Service was too notch. Our waitstaff was friendly accommodating and professional. We really felt comfortable in a way I wasn’t expecting given the fine dining feel to the restaurant when we walked in. From first check in through goodbyes our experience was great. We will definitely come back in the future.

    While the venue and atmosphere were cool (think 1930s vibe), I do not recommend this restaurant. The food was not good (very poor steak cuts, cold sides) and it is on the pricey side given the poor food quality, lack of service, and no attention to details (ex: requested salt and pepper and what was brought to the table was empty). Also the bathrooms were poor quality (the stall door did not even close).

    My husband and I made a reservation at Osso for our first wedding anniversary. Overall, we loved the experience and our meal. Our server was okay, not the friendliest or most pleasant per say, and we would have ordered more drinks if she had checked in on us more. The ambiance is nice, although you can see right into the kitchen from the dining room, which is interesting. The food was amazing, and we had an absolutely awesome and memorable dinner, but we wouldn't go back. This was a $300 meal that left us not quite underwhelmed, definitely satisfied, but certainly not wowed. For the price and the special occasion, we could have stood to be a bit more wowed, mostly by the restaurant itself and the service. Food was top definitely notch, but as far as high-end steakhouses go, we'd go somewhere else next time.

    This place had such good reviews… 3 of the 4 steaks were over cooked, one so bad we sent it back and the waiter argued about it. Flavor was fair, Texas Roadhouse makes a better steak however. Lobster bisque was provided as an apology to that member of our party, it smelled so bad we had to remove it from the table. Only side that was worth eating was the Max and Cheese. We went to Alexanders on Friday night and spent about $250 a person, I would do this 10X over vs the $125/person at Osso. I’m embarrassed I suggested the place to my party since the food was so bad. Please save yourself the irritation and go Somewhere else for dinner.

    As usual, Osso's never disappoints. The wonderful vibe and decor of the restaurant makes you feel special and very happy. What's high on my agenda is cleanliness and by observing my surroundings during dinner, its very clear that keep the restaurant in pristine condition is a top priority. Food was OUTSTANDING from the luscious caesar salad and asparagus soup to the absolute perfectly cooked filet. The brussel sprouts were awesome along side the creamy mashed potatoes. Our waiter was diligent and the servers were PERFECT. So kind and respectful and they appeared to be so happy doing their jobs. Always, always, always a winner. I LOVE this place!

    Our server was outstanding, but the food was not up to SF standards. Overdone lobster tail. Brussels sprout leaves, but no actual brussels sprouts. Celebrated birthday, but dessert was not free. For the price point, the quality should have been better.
