Ostra at Mokara Hotel & Spa
Book your next event with us
We live in Dallas. Always a favorite spot to stop when we visit San Antonio. Great food. Ambiance. And the service is always spot on. Thank you, Nicholas for making our experience memorable. We’ll be back!
Food did not taste fresh. Really "fishy" taste and smell. The cheeseburger was the best thing our table ordered. When asked to be moved due to neighboring restaurant smokers, wait staff refused to help us relocate. Had to request from manager. New server polite however unable to anticipate needs. Had to ask for everything....refills, salt/pepper, check, etc. Forr this price point we would expect fresher food and outstanding service.
The food was great as was the service. Always a pleasure to visit!
It was by far one of the best meals we’ve had in a long time!
Very good food, great service, we had reservations at 7pm arrived at 6:50 and were seated right away.
We chose to eat outside. It was a cool night and the restaurant had torch heaters which made it very comfortable. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. We would eat here again.
Recommended by Grand Hyatt and Ostra did not disappoint. The service was excellent (Mike) and all he good superb! Can’t say enough about what a wonderful evening it was!
The food was ok but but not worth the price ... the Yard House has a better kitchen than this place
We were so excited about eating at Ostra , but the food was a major disappointment! The host ,server, atmosphere were so nice ! The host gave us a great table w/view of the Riverwalk ! Our salads were average tasting and were served in hot bowls and my Mom’s fried shrimp was soggy and French fries cold and had a bad texture .My fish was very average . They did adjust the bill , but was surprise a manager never followed up w/us.
The servers and host were very enjoyable, but the food was mediocre, especially for the price. This seems to be expected on the Riverwalk, though. The seating outside was nice and a good spot to people watch.
Great food, great service!!
We had lunch at Ostra and thoroughly enjoyed it. My friend had the salmon which he said was perfect and I had the Cobb Salad which was excellent. The service was perfect and the ambiance of the restaurant is great. We were never rushed and enjoyed a lovely lunch on the Riverwalk. I would highly recommend Ostra to anyone who wants a lovely meal and a nice environment.
The atmosphere was perfect. It’s not on the main high traffic part of the river walk, so it’s a little more intimate. My husband and I went for his birthday and he loved it. Perfect for date night.
Octopus is a must. So was the Chilean sea bass. Try to get a table where the server is not also serving a big party next to you. Otherwise very good.
We were disappointed in the entire dinner experience. While the food was good, the service was not acceptable. For that reason, I wouldn't return. We were offered "excuses" throughout the evening as to why our food and wine wasn't delivered to the table either in a timely manner-or in the case of the oysters-not at all. I was entertaining clients and it was embarrassing. I won't return or recommend. However, it was a lovely looking restaurant on the San Antonio Riverwalk.
The service was wonderful. The food was delicious. We sat outside and it was cool and comfortable. Wonderful experience.
Great food and overall excellent experience.
Great food and wine selection lovely setting on the river.
Really fabulous dinner. We enjoyed it immensely. The scallops were the best I have ever had!
The food was fresh and original served with a smile.
It was our first time at this restaurant and we’ll definitely be back, made our Valentines dinner amazing.
Fantastic food, service and ambience beside the river.
One of the best restaurants in the river walk
Very nice restaurant located in the Mokara hotel on the Riverwalk. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would go back.
Excellent food and attentive service. The house-made sausage was memorable.
Gumbo was excellent, and the raw bar was very fresh.
Sent my parents here for Restaurant Week, the staff, from the manager to the server made sure that all my requests were taken care of and that everything went smoothly. My parents had a great time!
friendly, prompt service. great seafood, even an excellent steak for one in our party who is allergic to shellfish. outside dining on the Riverwalk makes for good people watching.
Absolutely wonderful meal; great service. Good wine selection. Very memorable.
Delicious Breakfast and excellent service.
I do not understand the bad reviews that I read, especially for the service. Our server, John, was outstanding! We explained that we had to be at the theatre at 7:30 and that we would count on him to make sure we ordered our food in time, and he took his job very seriously. He was incredibly accommodating, keeping us well stocked with wine, warm bread, and butter; giving us his recommendations for and description of the menu items, and allowing us to share both salads and our entrees. The food was absolutely delicious. If I have one complaint it is that the wine was overpriced -- but that did not keep me from having two glasses! All in all a wonderful dining experience which we will definitely repeat in the future.
Everything was very salty. Instead of letting the ingredients speak for itself, there was too much salt added. Seafood come with natural salt inside them, no need to add extra salt.
Very nice restaurant, tasty food, great atmosphere, and outstanding service! Took my girlfriend here for our 1 year anniversary and we absolutely loved everything about it! Our dishes were superb along with our server David who was the embodiment of customer satisfaction and service! Highly recommend this restaurant for that simple date or special occasion!
Every thing was great except food took longer than expected. Saw people who ordered after us receiving theirs before but no explanation of why are food was taking longer
New Year’s Eve dinner on the river walk. Of course, very busy but service did not suffer. Food was good, not great. Some seafood items a bit over cooked. Overall, we were satisfied.
New Years! Great food on a fun night.
Overall I enjoyed the experience. Like many things on the river walk I feel that it's over priced. We enjoyed the two person chilled seafood entry, but I wouldn't recommend the oysters Rockefeller or the calamari. They both left a lot to be desired.
Steak wY under cooked. Had to wait almost an hour for a replacement
Food not worth the $150 bill for 3 people.
