We loved it! Will be back
We want the mustard salmon again
We had such a wonderful time on Valentine's Day! Amelia was our server and we were very pleased. My husband loves the warm olives and she was able to ask Chef for an order, even on a super busy day which we were so happy with! 3 of us all got the strip steak which was incredible. All cooked perfect to our requested temperatures while my Mom had the mushroom parpadelle pasta. It was so delicate and delicious! We ended with a creamsicle panna cotta and a flour less chocolate cake that didn't disappoint! My husband raved about it so much, now his Mom is headed up there for dinner tonight! We will for sure be back soon. Thank you!!
The atmosphere is cool, the service was meh, the food is trying too hard to be better/more impressive than it is. The small plates were good. Suprised how salty and poorly constructed the burger was considering it was the special of the night. Overcooked and reminded me of a thin fast food burger over-sauced and wedged between a semi-burnt bun. Otherwise, I would recommend it for the hipster vibe.
This small quaint place offers great food and excellent cocktails. I will definitely be coming back.
Excellent food and service. Would definitely return
Food was good
The noise level made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation across the table with the other party
What an outstanding restaurant! We had a great time.
Acoustics are not great, but the food and service were excellent. Luckily we didn’t have to sit in the middle on counter seats; we couldn’t hear each other.
Nice place would recommended! Menu is small, which I like. Cocktails were delicious. Plates nice sized to share family style. Food delicious and deliberate. Awesome service great vibe. Will return!
best burger I ever had. pasta was amazing.. great wine, value & taste
Food was great and owners were very accommodating to specific dietary needs. Menu is unique but very approachable.
My husband and I really enjoyed our evening here. From the start the hostess was friendly. Even though she was busy tending to the couple ahead of us, she greeted us and said she be right back. The food was amazing. It was a full house so we had to wait a while for our drinks but they were delicious. Wonder if they could do anything to help absorb the sound a bit more. The noise didn’t bother us on our date night but I definitely would bring my parents or have a business meeting there.
OSA overall was a great place to eat and enjoy conversation with family and friends. The food was delicious, I highly recommend the OSA burger and octopus. The octopus had a delectable pairing of soprassata and octopus, the homemade herb mayonnaise sauce was a delightful garnish on the burger and smashed potatoes. The best dish was the homemade chocolate chip cookies that were baked to perfection. The atmosphere of OSA was cozy, with wood all over the walls and ceiling. My only complaint would be that the wooden benches were a little uncomfortable and it was very loud inside. Other than that the atmosphere of OSA was quite nice. The only problem I had with OSA was that the service was terribly slow. OSA is a nice place to go out to eat, if you do choose to go I definitely recommend getting the chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
Dinner for 4 Table was ready when we arrived. Drinks took a while to get which was the only down of the night. Service was great otherwise and food was creative and delicious. Snack plate of cheese with cherry jam & nuts was really tasty. Smashed potatoes were complemented by the sauce. Among the 6 small plates, octopus with pancetta and beef tatare were the table favorites with the sunchoke a close 3rd. Also had the wood roasted herbed chicken. WAS FABULOUS! So moist! This was also shared with the table and all agreed it was one the best chicken dish ever. Although a bit pricey, it was worthy of another visit in the near future.
Our server, Sarah, created a warm and welcoming environment for our table. She answered our questions and described each dish as it arrived. The Chef prepared a delicious Cacio e Pepe in addition to deliciously sweet Sunchokes. I'm so glad Alycia posted about Osa on @CtEatsOut - another great find!
We loved our entire meal from drinks to every delicious plate we ordered! Carefully curated comfort food, yum!
Never disappoints! The food is fresh, innovative and absolutely delicious. Small but fabulous wine selection.
Love this restaurant!
Awesome place, great food and service! Thanks again Pete!
Mostly small plates but a small variety of full-plate entrees. All the food was flavorful. Portion sizes were reasonable. We saved room for dessert but nothing on the menu that day really appealed to us. .
Delicious flavors but the portions were much smaller than expected for the price. Even for a “big” plate
Food was excellent. The way all different taste hit your palette was exceptional. The vibe is very cool and love all the local sourcing Highly recommend!
The food was good, not great, although the bread was superb. The service was reeaally slow, even though it wasn’t that busy. The decor is all hard surfaces, so it was really noisy...almost impossible to have a conversation. Very nice staff, although a little too much checking in for my taste. This was my first visit. I’ll give it another chance, but overall, I was not wowed by the place.
Excellent food, great drinks, and awesome service. Must go in CT.
Food was excellent. Highly recommend the cookies for dessert.
Something different in Middletown. Creative small portions featuring local ingredients and delicious (and sometimes unusual) combinations. The smoked tomato sauce is amazing. Surprisingly small tariff for the quality of the food. Our new favorite restaurant.
Food and drinks were excellent. Portions could be a little larger for the price charged.
We love everything about Osa. The food is phenomenal, and we love sharing small plates! It’s fun to try several things opposed to one big meal. I’d order the menu in one sitting if I could!
It was a relatively quiet night at Osa this evening. It was the first time I had eaten there and wanted to bring my friend to a new restaurant to thank her for helping me out. After reading the reviews, and realizing I know one of the owners, it seemed the right place to go. Staff were friendly, professional and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. I appreciated not feeling at all rushed. My friend and I had a delightful evening and I know I’ll be going there again.
Everything was incredible. Food was creative, fresh, delicious, and well thought out. Incredible experience!
Osa was incredible. My eyes were a bit sensitive to the lighting and seating is a bit uncomfortable, but the the food and service make it 5 star worthy in my book. They DO have seating pads available upon request--definitely ask for one. We had bread with shipped lardo, which was perfection. The octopus was the best I've ever had. My husband had steak and I had scallops and both of our meals were wonderful. We'll be back.
First time there and it didn’t disappoint. A real foodie place. Delicious!
Always a good and inventive menu.
This was our first visit and won’t be the last. We both totally enjoyed our dinner selections and my scallops were perfectly cooked. The apple crepes for dessert are a must.
Took a trip to Middletown specifically to visit Osa Restaurant. Overall food was good, way overpriced, very small portion size. I can understand what they are trying to do, but in this market I do not believe it is sustainable. Service was very good (Peter), ambiance is nice although seemed to be done "on the cheap". Bartender also very good. Probably won't be back.
The OSA has a bit of a Nordic rustic feel from the wood lattice and ropes to the big WC signs. The food is farm to table, the current fad, and it’s execution was well done.
The menu was all original so every dish was an adventure. You won’t be disappointed if you venture around the menu.
Service is attentive but not suffocating.
We certainly expect to return.
This restaurant is stellar--excellent and daring small bites and meals, great wine list and cocktails.
Interesting, innovative food, some of it very delicious. However, our server was pretty rude to us, unfortunately. One of our party asked for a drink that was unavailable there, and instead of suggesting something else, the server just said, no we don't have that, in a tone that implied it was beneath the restaurant (it was a Red Bull vodka- definitely something I would not expect at Osa, but no need to be rude or dismissive about it). When another in our party asked questions about a dish to get more information before ordering, we were told, "the preparation is on the menu" in a fairly condescending tone, and were not given more information.
Since not everyone has access to/ experience with the great ingredients and innovative preparations on your menu, it would have been nice if the server was more forthcoming with information about stuff many people rarely see on menus. A couple of people in our party had never been to a restaurant like Osa, and were treated poorly due to their relative "outsider status." I think the partnership with farms and the use of ingredients relatively unfamiliar to the masses is wonderful and should be applauded, but people should not be treated like ignoramuses by the servers because they ask questions or have not heard certain dish ingredient names or cooking terms or have not ever tried a similar dish. It was really off-putting. If the food you are attempting to expose people to is unfamiliar and not normally seen on most menus, your staff really be more polite to people to whom those types of dishes are new. One of the problems people have with patronizing places like Osa is not the food, as people really want to try new things and appreciate delicious innovation, it is the unfamiliarity, and the intimidation factor. Your server really made us all feel like jerks for asking questions by acting like a food snob, and treated us like we were ignorant. It spoiled our experience, unfortunately.
Amazing menu! I have food allergies and it was refreshing to have a waitress that actual cared and helped me order whatever I wanted off the menu.
Super good as always. Great service as well
