Osteria 2350 Ratings and Reviews
We went during restaurant week. They have a really well priced and tasty three course meal with wine pairing ($20 & $15). The restaurant has the same ownership of its much more formal neighbor, Cioppino. While the food was quite good, the service was a little spotty in terms of taking our order.
We have eaten here many times before and always enjoyed our meal and time there. This time was special in the fact that we brought our 33 month old granddaughter there and the server was so attentive to her. Her meal was submitted first as we requested and brought out within a timely fashion. She loved it. She told the server he "was a very nice man." I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends.
Food was very disappointing, none of the entrees were of the quality we expected. Gnocchi was under cooked, crab cake had odd balsamic sauce that did not work and pasta was gummy. Enjoyed the flatbread pizza as an appetizer but that was the highlight of the meal.
Four of us dined at Osteria 2350 earlier on a Saturday evening. The restaurant, associated with Chioppino, is lovely. Regulars ate at the bar, and families were welcome. The food was fantastic, from appetizers--great salads--to mains, and dessert. We'll be back.
Went for Restaurant Week event/menu. Server was informed re wines paired with menu. They were out of first two beers ordered off their list. Heard they had one of the first course offerings available. Saw the host seat in reserved guests at the bar with many tables available. Saw two guests turned away with many tables available.
Food was great (although cauliflower mash could have been warmer), but handling of guests was off-putting. Restaurant is not in a location with options other than sister next door. Glad we used Reataurant Week option to experience this one.
Food was good. Service was sort of squirrely. Soup and salads were brought out with the main courses because the server wanted to save him self a trip. Had to ask for bread. Server said "Oh did you want that?" Asked for butter - never got it after asking twice.
Haven't been to Osteria in a while, and am now sorry we've been away! The food was awesome. We had the stuffed prosciutto, spaghetti and (amazing!) meatballs, eggplant parm and cured meat sandwiches. Everything was just delicious, and our server Dana was exceptional. Can't wait to go back. Very highly recommended!
My fiance and I went on a date here, and we were pretty disappointed. The server forgot to bring our wine and we finally received it after asking 15 minutes later. Our appetizer, the stuffed banana peppers, were cold. They had to have been sitting out for at least 10 minutes. When my fiance got his spaghetti and meatballs, the spaghetti was overcooked and he couldn't finish eating his meal. However, I got the gnocchi and it was fine. I feel like these are some basic errors that could have been avoided and it would have made it a more pleasant experience.
Night out with good friends turned into a 3 hour visit at Osteria. Brandon, our server, was patient and kind while providing us with great service. From appetizers to desserts and all the wonderful breads in between our dinner was fabulous. The Italian Manhattans were a great compliment to our pasta dinners. Never disappointed when dining at Osteria.
Osteria 2350 had good and bad points. The crab bisque, stuffed peppers, asparagus salad, stuffed prosciutto and gnocchi were good. The service was haphazard at best. Most of us had an appetizer and soup/salad before our entrees. Unfortunately, some were forgotten and those that did arrive, all came at once. From something our sever said, it sounds as though this restaurant shares a kitchen with its more upscale sister restaurant Cioppino. Doesn't seem very efficient.
For years this place has been underrated and probably under used by the general masses. The food is simply outstanding in every way. The presentation, quality, taste, and certainly price. There is of course, also the numerous wine selections to accent the meal. We met a few friends who rarely venture into "The City" proper, for dinner and a show, and they were beyond satisfied. As we have been for years.
Off the beaten path in the strip. A hidden gem. The meal was great from start to finish. We had antipasto for an appetizer it was great. The menu is small but everyone loved their entrees. Mainly pasta and a couple chicken and a couple fish. The dessert was great. They make their own pasta and gelato! Will return soon!!
Second visit to the restaurant. This time for business dinner. Client loved it as did I. Service was better this time, though (at least for me) they could be a little quicker getting food to the table. All in all it was a fantastic dining experience. I'll definitely be back again.
The food was fantastic but the service was notably slow. And the restaurant wasn't busy at all. Better then half of the tables were empty. It was an initial meeting so other than the time it took to get our food, we were able to use the time for conversation. All in all a great place, but they could step up the time from order to table a bit.
