Amazing service and value loved the food. Can’t wait to go back
Great location, service was lovely, ambience great, food was amazing! We would 100% recommend to make a point to go to here.
We mentioned the birthday to server and manager that came by but it was not acknowledged. Besides that, it was a delightful experience.
Great food and attentive service. The salted branzino and oysters were outstanding! Fun place for a special family meal.
First time to Ostra since Covid. Proper precautions were taken, but did not feel closed-in or claustrophoic. As usual, food and service were top-notch. Time between cocktails, appetizers, and entrees were nicely spaced-out. Branzino was broiled perfectly, and the Paella was fantastic as usual. Wine selections were also great. Looking forward to coming back for another special occasion.
It was a wonderful meal. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helped us plan out the perfect courses. I would definitely go back. The place is not cheap so be prepared! But, it was worth it.
Delicious oysters - New England is the best for tasty, smooth, and fresh-like-the sea oysters. The Powder Point oysters were our fave. Steak and Monkfish were delightful. The Paella was overdone; unfortunately, the rice & chorizo were burnt and inedible. That said, the seafood (shrimp, mini-octopus, calamari, lobster) in the paella was amazing. Adding the artichokes was a pleasant surprise.
The service was outstanding! The food was very good, our overall experience was spectacular. Great ambiance, would highly recommend!
Perfect place for a night out with friends or significant other. The atmosphere is incredible.
Great experience at Ostra
Food is really nice and service is great!
Exceptional in every way . At this time when care needs to be taken in all interactions this restaurant does it right. Our meal was delicious, elegant, special in every way. Our server Katherine was professional in every regard yet she took the time to personally recommend things for both our dinner and our trip to Boston! Overall a great night!
It was fantastic! Ostra always does an exceptional job at providing 5 star service. All of the staff members were attentive to keeping the tables clean, waters filled, timely food arrival. I really love my birthday experience there and very happy with everything despite the current city/country wide restrictions.
Wonderful service, ambiance, cocktails and food!
Sadly not the same in pandemic-obviously. However, the staff and food were delicious! :)
Our waitress was wonderful and the whole team could not have been nicer. The food was excellent! We will definitely go back again.
The waiter was rude and obnoxious! The food was good though but probably not going back anytime soon.
An amazing restaurant! My husband and I celebrated his birthday and we couldn’t ask for more. The food was great and the service was even better. We’d love to come back soon!
One of the best meals we have had. Wonderful experience
Always excellent food & service here!
Just a bit too pricey for the food quality. Would have expected over the top taste for the prices charged.
The service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. If I could have given 4.5 stars I would have done so as the only flaw was the whipped potatoes, which were delicious, arrived at the end of the meal. The salted branzino and paella were simply outstanding, each very flavorful and well prepared. Giving the value of the experience 4 stars rather than 5 is based solely on the price of the meal, which I thought was high even by pre-pandemic standards. Nevertheless I was happy to support the restaurant and will return.
always excellent food Arguably one of Boston’s best restaurants never disappoints!
Great as always!
amazing food across all courses, charming service and classy ambience. couldn't have asked for a better night out!
Excellent high end seafood option for date or girls night.
Fantastic menu with exception service- we will be back!
Great service by Trever and great food. Can’t wait to go back
Hope to experience a new menu in addition to daily special. I have been to Ostra for 5 years and the menu remains the same. Delicious as usual I have to say. But looking forward to experiencing something new.
An excellent dinner experience starting the moment we walked in. Very attentive and helpful staff, prompt service and an attentive staff that was always checking on us and making sure we were taken care of. The food was outstanding and one of the best meals we've had out in a while. Highly recommend!
Excellent food and service, great ambiance.,table was ready on time and excellent cleaning. Food was perfect, thanks a lot
We were >20 minutes early for our reservation, and they kindly seated us anyway.
We felt very safe due to spaced out tables, but they made an excellent effort to make everything feel "normal." Staff was very efficient bringing out food, but not so fast that we felt rushed. (There was a 90 minute dining limit, but it still felt like plenty of time.)
Enjoyed the sea bass tartare; can't wait to try the others.
Excelente comida! Loved the hispanic staff! 🥰 Great spot and parking bear by!
Always a pleasure to eat here. They are doing a great job with Covid precautions and safety without sacrificing ambiance and overall experience. And the food as always is superb.
I love Ostra it guarantees quality and service. Food is superb and never disappoints. Thanks
Great food as always and felt very comfortable with how the restaurant is managing the COVID situation.
Very expensive and still hungry after dinner
Noise level ...... comes with beautiful space with high ceilings ...... could be Addressed
