    Another amazing dining experience at this gem of a restaurant. Drinks were great (mocktails included!), outstanding food, and superior service. Sincerely appreciate Andrew and team accommodating our request for a table in a quieter area of the dining room!

    If it’s white truffle season, and you’re looking to have them, this is a place to go!  we had two different incredible pasta dishes with white truffles. Yes, they’re expensive but it’s a once in a while treat.

    Let me start by saying I want to give them a 4.5 stars. The half star is because this was my husband's 55th birthday and I booked the reservation on OpenTable and I asked for a surprise dessert to be brought out but it's obvious they did not look at those notes. If a restaurant uses another platform for reservations, then they should make note of any information posted. Restaurants that don't have as high of a caliber as Osteria have been able to abide by a dessert request even so far as to make a personalized menu with his name on it so the fact that they didn't take heed of the note was a little disappointing. However: Ambience-minimalist modern Service-impeccable, thank you Jackson!! Food-top notch I feel the 2 pieces of complimentary bread brought to table I feel should be at least 2 per person Apps we had that I didn't take pictures of: calamari and grilled octopus were delicious Entre: zuppa I had could have used a touch of salt or an offering of freshly grated Parmesan or black pepper but still delicious.

    Had another outstanding meal at OC. We started with a unique & delicious twist on a Gin &Tonic; the mixologist infused the gin with an incredible roasted apple flavor. What a perfect autumn cocktail! We noticed that the menu had been updated for the Fall season and as usual, the meal did not disappoint. We shared the melt-on-your tongue gnudi and the arugula salad, followed by a wonderful short rib ravioli with a puréed corn sauce and a deeply-favored zuppa di pesce over fregola. No room for dessert this time!

    Dinner was fantastic. The squid ink ravioli stuffed with lobster and crab was exquisite. With just a bit of heat. The carrot purée with the Burrata was unique. The pork chop was amazing. Can’t wait to come back and try the rest of the menu!

    I hope they were just having an off night, bc I was sorely disappointed with our dining experience. The only pluses were the attentive staff and the bread & EVOO. The ambience is uninviting and cold, and the hard surfaces amplify noise. We ordered the prix fixe menu: the meatballs with yogurt sauce is not a successful dish; the calamari was tasty but not worth the $5 upcharge; both the ravioli and the orecchiette were overly salty; the branzino was tasty but skimpily portioned; the pork chop was too sweet and over cooked; the pear dessert was served cold and when I expressed my surprise, the waiter confirmed it should have been warm, but he didn't correct the problem, nor did he comp us for it. For a meal for two costing $180 (with no alcohol), I expect much better.

    My husband and I ordered the price fixe menu. I was amazed at the large portion sizes of the appetizer and 1st course. We were full before the entree arrived. But the food was so delicious, we finished it all anyway. Our waiter, Derek, was very helpful with wine and food selections. We will definitely return.
