Food was fantastic and excellent service. No complaints at all. Will be back
Lekker eten. Leuk gezlschap. Goede sfeer. Goede bediening. Goede wijnkaart.
Nice ambience , faulty heater, overzealous service.
Food was pricey and fair quality.
Ordered salmon. Waiter said it was served medium, upon arrival it was very well done basically over cooked. Nice decor but wouldn’t rush back.
Underrated. We had the best meal of all restaurant at Ostra.
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. Our server greeted us by name, and remembered us from the last time we were there for dinner while our daughter and son-in-law were visiting from out of state. There are many fine dining establishments on the Riverwalk, but Ostra has become our “go to” choice for visitors and special occasions. Ostra gets everything right.
This restaurant is nicely decorated and the ambience is great. My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner and I highly recommend going to this restaurant
We dined at Ostra on an unusual night - The Ford Holiday River Parade, so the noise level was loud with a three-piece band playing holiday music on the bridge that spanned the river close by. Gaiety reigned. It was really the perfect place to be on such a night. Even though the menu was limited, and the price for the three-course menu fixed, the offerings that I chose were tasty, well prepared, and delicious.
My first course was Charred Spanish Octopus, Chorizo, Spanish Papas, and a Soft Poached Egg. Never having had octopus before, I felt that Ostra probably was a good place to try it, and I was right. It was tender and the flavor was perfect. The chorizo was some of the best I had ever tasted. The soft poached egg brought the entire dish together.
The Applewood Roasted Salmon was perfectly cooked and I loved the Sweet Corn Puree that accompanied it. The Classic Creme Brulee with Fresh Berries was a delicious ending.
I am anxious to return on a night when the full menu is available.
The food was delicious! And you sit right on the riverwalk. It’s wonderful!
So good!! One of the best Riverwalk restaurants by far. Beautiful outside seating and delicious food. Gumbo, ceviche, redfish tacos and oyster po-boy—all perfect. Very nice margaritas. We will be back!
Ostra in right on the riverwalk, but in one of the most pleasant parts thereof. Food on the riverwalk is generally poor, but Ostra is actually quite good. I had a redfish ceviche, which was very good, and the octopus, which was also very good but perhaps with too much chorizo. My wife had the mussels which were very good also. Her only complaint was that the sauce was VERY rich. Cost of food is quite high, but typical for the location. Portion sizes were very large, which was why we both ate two appetizers. Overall, a good choice for San Antonio.
Service was quick and friendly without overstating. Food was well prepared and presented.
I’ve been to Ostra before and it was really good. This time it was awful. I was treating my best friend to a spa weekend before her upcoming wedding. We decided to stay close and just go to the restaurant in the hotel. The service was horrible. We had reservations and they weren’t that busy. The waiter hardly checked on us. I had to ask for more water twice. He never came back to see how our food was. I had to flag him down because the pasta dish we ordered was cold. The plate was piping hot, but the food was cold and the pasta was undercooked. I had the steak and scallops which was good and prepared really well. The service was so bad and the food was mediocre. Not worth $150. We didn’t even have dessert we were so displeased. I’m always a 20% tipper, even when service isn’t good, but it was so bad I only left 15%. They need to step it up!
Were very pleased with our recent visit to Ostra. Service was outstanding, with answers to all our questions, and good attentiveness. It was a lovely setting on the Riverwalk, and quieter than most...we were able to converse and feel relaxed and unhurried. Loved the food, as well. We enjoyed the scallops with coconut curry, and the featured dish of seafood, rabbit, and creamy sauced orzo. Calamari were crispy and loved the batter! I love the BLUE glasses and pretty margarita glasses.
We had an excellent meal at Ostra this past Friday. I had oysters and the blackened Redfish and my wife had the ahi Tuna. The food, the service and the wine (a bottle of the Rioja Reserva) were all excellent. And, we had a great table outside even though it had just stopped raining and they weren’t serving outside. We asked when we arrived and they made it happen.
Menu has not been updated. The lobster on the lobster roll was over cooked.
Excellent food and service!
The ambience was perfect. The service outstanding. The food memorable. We will come back. A bonus: The Texas-TCU game appeared on the TV screen over the bar to our left. We got to watch a Longhorn win for dessert. The apple pudding ice cream dessert was fabulous. The view of the Riverwalk from our booth was beautiful. Highly recommend!
The food is always very good, staff always friendly.
We really enjoyed our dining experience at Ostra. Our server, John was amazing and very helpful in making our choices for appetizers, dinner and wine. The food was absolutely wonderful - very creative chef! I had sea bass and my date had bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. Both were very tasty and cooked to perfection! I certainly would return to this beautiful and intimate venue next time I am in San Antonio.
Delicious seafood! A little more hectic than I had imagined and it was right up close to the Riverwalk and there was no barrier. Still an enjoyable experience.
Taking my almost 101 year old mother to an evening on the river!
Wonderful food, great service, excellent swordfish
Ultra fresh, inventive, and beautifully presented seafood dishes accompanied by friendly and proficient servers. Delightful and sophisticated - but not stuffy - ambience. We did, in fact, visit again two nights later. A first rate house!
Excellent and attentive wait staff. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Food was good and the view by the River Walk was nice to see people enjoying an afternoon. Food was nicely prepared and portion appropriate. Overall a pleasant experience.
The food is meant for those who want to savor what they are eating. Although, the lighting was a little too dark for my taste, I know that many enjoy it. It does overlook the riverwalk but you wouldn't notice because of the lack of noise.
Fantastic, food service and atmosphere areelegant with the fun of the riverwalk. Patio seating is my favorite. Staff were extremely attentive. I eat here each time I am in SA.
Thank you for setting up a table for us. The meal was beyond delicious as well.
Best thing: The staff. Everybody was wonderful. Okay thing: the food. We had walked by the night before and the food LOOKED amazing, so we made the decision to dine there the next night. The reviews said the fried oysters were fantastic so I tried them. They were good, but not fantastic. Not a fan of the sauce they put on them. My mom and I each had the seafood pasta for dinner. She didn't like it at all and had to send it back (no real flavor in the sauce). I had not eaten all day, so ate the seafood out of it and left most of the pasta. As someone else said in another review -- not worth the price tag. I would try it again, but try something else next time.
Service was very slow on a night that was not busy.
No points = bad rating
Welcome to the real world where your rating reflects how you treat your customers.
Superbly done scallops in an interesting, very light curry sauce. The service personnel really know how the food is prepared. They don’t just rattle off the ingredients. I will definitely go back.
Went to Ostra prior to attending a show at the Majestic Theater. We were seated next to the windows along the Riverwalk. The server opened our windows and even though it was July, the A/C inside kept us cool while making us feel like we were sitting outside. The oysters were great as were the main courses. Wine list was nice, too. Great people watching, as well.
Amazing food and experience. Top restaurant in San Antonio by far. Highly recommend and request Jorge for incredible service.
Very good food and very attentive staff. Barramundi was not prepared very well, but they remedied it immediately.
Food not warm. Service was terrible.
I guess they thought we were tourists and not locals.
Recently fined at lunch and it was great. Of course server knew we were locals.
Good service. Long time to get food after ordering.
The only downside to sitting outside at this restaurant is its location next to a bar where people smoke, unless of course you’re into that cigarette smoke-meal combo.
Great service and food!
I’ve been several times. Service was terrible this time. Food took over one hour to arrive, server never checked on us, not even once. Terrible experience this time.
The Moscow Mule was below average. The seafood plateau was not good. The oysters were not appetizing. Shrimp were ok. Ceviche was average. The prices were exorbitant!!! $275 for a party of four with not very good food. We won’t be back.
