I had never had Barramundi fish before but it was well prepared, mild, white, flakey fish with pork rosutto and charred green onion emulsion and crispy Brussels sprouts. My wife had the blackened red with converse gristmill polenta, wilted spinach and roasted tomato all done to her liking. Good presentation and a delicious meal.

Situated on the river walk with that touristy feel we should of known that the restaurant expects one and done" meaning you eat here once and then never go back. This is probably the case for many visitors to San Antonio. In our case it was due to mediocre service with a 10 minute wait for Coca Cola and I'm not kidding an Oyster PO Boy presented with one half sandwich with three fried oysters and cold French fries. To be fair the sandwich was replaced with a new one containing two halves. The manager did apologize with words and not deeds. Paid the check and left. Never to return.

We sat by the River Walk which was at times very busy- and you'll smell smoke from those standing nearby. The redfish was average. My friends gumbo and shrimp was also average. The host was very pleasant and helpful. Service was good but kitchen was slow

We are visiting San Antonio from Oregon and wanted a nice dinner for our last night. We picked Ostra off the internet, the menu looked good, but we did not read any reviews. We sat outside on the patio next to the Riverwalk. This was the best dinner we’d had in months and we have recently been in Spain, New Zealand and France. Our party of four had Mahi Mahi, red snapper and pork tenderloin. Without exception, the meals were delicious. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly without being intrusive. Highly recommend Ostra for a special evening.

Ostra was a wonderful surprise. Being a hotel restaurant, you never know what to expect. We had breakfast and dinner there, both meals were delicious, and the service was exceptional. Definitely recommend the Migas for breakfast, and the steak, snapper and bread pudding were all so good, we look forward to dining here again. You can have a quiet meal inside, or sit on the Riverwalk and enjoy the strolling mariachis.

We were there during hurricane Harvey. We had the place pretty much to ourselves. We were never rushed. The food was amazing and our server was great and attentive. We were celebrating our nephews engagement and the restaurants attention to detail made it a memorable night.

The food was pretty good but the drinks were way over priced which comes with the River Walk. Service from the waiter was poor. Our waiter was very kind but wasn't attentive. We had asked for a couple things and never received it from him. The guy who helped out but wasn't a waiter was good, they honestly should have him as a waiter instead. Manager was great, he greeted us as soon as we walked in and also checked on the tables periodically. For the Riverwalk it's not a bad choice but there are still a couple others that I would recommend first.

The location is great! We received impeccable service from John, who was an all around nice guy. We ordered the Gulf Seafood Plateau and it was amazing. Very fresh! My wedge salad was delicious as well. The entrees were just ok. One entree wasn't hot when they brought it and the other was just bland. The desserts were good, but not great. We did have a wonderful time and John took superb care of us. Overall a pleasant experience.

We love seafood and were heading to a weekend in San Antonio. I googled "Top seafood restaurants in San Antonio" and Ostra was the top rated one in the Riverwalk area, near our hotel. We had the scallops which were amazing, the tuna tacos appetizer, the gumbo, and the Ceasar salad -- all fantastic and expertly made. We split everything so our waitress Cynthia had the chef split the plates for us, which was nice. Oh! and the homemade bread was to die for. We sat inside in the air conditioned dining room which was quiet and elegant, off of the hot, noisy and crowded outside seating area, which we preferred.

Outstanding seafood! I found this place on Open Table a couple of years ago when I was dining alone and I was excited to bring my wife this time. She was pleased with the scallops. I had the barramundi, which included very tasty roasted Brussels Sprouts on the top.
We shared a delightful South African Chenin Blanc from Ernie Els winery.
Being right on the River Walk makes it interesting for people-watching.

Very disappointing. The food was bland - no taste to the crab gumbo & no crab. The calamari was over cooked. The seafood tagetelle was supposed to be cooked in wine sauce - no sauce to be found. This was a horrible dining experience. It was as if they gave us someone else's leftovers. Horrible....

The Casa Noble Reposado margarita was excellent. Food portions were good size, except the cauliflower mash side that came with the redfish we ordered
The food was good but the Brussels sprouts were a little undercooked for my liking.
Our waiter started out attentive but then was hard to get his attention

We had a great experience at Ostra. The food was perfect and our service was even better. The cost was high but we were expecting that going in. This is not your normal riverwalk live band/bar scene/taco stand. It is a very nice restrautant that is for that truly special occasion.

My wife and I enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner at Ostra. Each were fantastic as was the service. We stayed at the Mokara Hotel & Spa which offered a complimentary breakfast as part of our package. After dining there for dinner the night prior though we would've gladly taken advantage of breakfast without the special offer. In fact, we loved dinner and breakfast so much we grabbed lunch too before departing. My Seafood Pappardelle and my wife's Sea Scallops were incredible as was the Valrhona Chocolate Mousse Cake! For breakfast the Migas w/ Roasted Poblano and Vanilla Malted Pankcakes were out-of-this-world! Dining river side, along the people-watching ambiance, can't be matched.

Disgusting from beginning to end. None of the food is fresh. Everything is either battered or buttered even if they say it's plain. Waiter didn't understand English communication and it appeared to be the managers first day. Brian the manager was condescending and unapologetic. Worst experience ever. So many better places along the way. Avoid at all costs.
