Disappointed in the service. Called specifically ahead of time for a birthday dessert as a surprise to birthday girl. No dessert and very uncomfortable conversation with wait staff and manager. For the prices and tip we gave, we left frustrated. Our waiter seemed to be more focused on the game on tv than providing good service to the customers. And there were only a couple other tables occupied,

My family of 4 made reservation to enjoy NY eve dinner which was a 3 course dinner. The food was excellent but the service was extremely bad. That bad that we are not coming back. The offered desert was a only one option (mascarpone panna cota with poached pear) the moment of getting the desert the waiter came with chessecake for everyone just dropped the cakes and said in a hurry “this is our cheesecake because we ran out of the dessert” we didn’t have the chance to say anything. My youngest son doesn’t eat cheesecake so I waited for him to finish talking to the people seated next to us to ask him if they have any other dessert because we son doesn’t eat that. Again he came back 5 mins later with vanilla ice cream and said “this is all we got”. I we reserve a $115 menu (plus tax plus service) we expect to get served what it was offered. How come they ran out of the dessert if dinner was with reservation only and it was only one option? How come the waiter didn’t apologize before bringing the cheesecake and explain the situation and ask if we rather eat cheesecake (which was delicious by the way)?? Why he just brought again the ice cream without asking first if we were fine with it? I mean, we spent $700 for a dinner (including a bottle of wine) so we would top notch food but service as well! The food was great the service was horrible! Because of that I wouldn’t recommend Ostra.

Sorry for long feedback but I wanted to give a proper explanation.

They had a new years special menu with fixed prices about three times their normal prices then added a $50 service charge. Ended up paying $324 for two people. I dont mind paying for a good meal and expected to pay a premium on New Years but the food was terrible. I had a supposed prime strip that had no flavor, was overcooked and very tough. Actually one of the worst prepared steaks I have had at any level of restaurant. I ate less than half of it. My wife had a supposed whole Maine lobster that was probably 2 ounces of meat. The appetizers and sides were ok. We didn't care for the desert and neither of us ate it. Needless to say, we won't be back. We had eaten there before and really enjoyed the place. The night before we had a great meal at Paesanos at regular prices.

Regrettably, the food taste wasn’t what we had come expect from our previous experiences at Ostra. However, the service was certainly on par. Perhaps the pandemic was the cause for the decline.

Delightful outdoors dining with heat lamp, right next to the riverwalk pedestrian pathway. Great people watching location but could not see much of the River. Seafood was the specialty. Generally good quality but nothing exceptional. Service staff was eager to please but kept missing little things - fork for me but not my wife, water for my wife but my glass was empty…

Gabi, our server was knowledgeable, friendly and great service. We started with the wedge salad, very flavorful and gumbo; gumbo needed bigger pieces of sausage and shrimp for better flavor. The roasted salmon with duck succotash was fabulous, great flavors. The Halibut special was excellent, served with risotto prepared in an acorn squash, fabulous flavor and presentation. We are in San Antonio 2-3 times each year and we will be back to Ostra. One of the best fine dining experiences in San Antonio.

Very disappointing experience. Regardless of speaking with staff two times this week to ensure a "typical" experience though there was a city event, we arrived to be told there was ONLY a pri-fixe menu for the evening. Two days prior that was not the case. Having a reservation, making arrangements to avoid the riverwalk closures, and calling ahead about vegan options did us no good. We were visiting from out of town...don't plan on trying this restaurant again. Downtown San Antonio has too many consistently great options to consider.

Had 7pm reservations and were seated promptly.

The bread served was fresh, warm and delicious. We split a Caesar salad that we both thought was average, nothing special. My friend ordered the special (scallops with risotto and a poblano sauce), I ordered the filet mignon. Presentation of both dishes was beautiful. The filet was slightly undercooked from what I ordered but we both enjoyed both entrees.

The sever was friendly and knowledgeable but could have been more attentive. The salad was initially forgotten and we went without drinks for quite some time.

Overall it was an enjoyable experience and we will likely dine again.
