It's a beautiful spot with fancy, delicious food. They charge accordingly. Treat yourself, though!

The food was amazing. Service could have been a bit better but they may have been on reduced staff due to the Corona Virus outbreak.

Top-notch service and amazing food!
The drinks we ordered were ok, not exceptional.
Expensive, but great for the special occasion.

Had a great experience at Ostra. The food was fantastic with great service. Enjoyed the atmosphere and choice. It’s a bit pricey but worth it.

Outstanding restaurant. All staff are personable and responsive to diners, from the moment you enter the restaurant to the waitstaff throughout dinner service. Our waiter, Paul, was attentive and willing to answer all questions and make the experience memorable. Ambience is energetic but not overpowering, and we were able to converse without shouting. And then, the food! Fish is cooked perfectly, apps and desserts are exceptional, and drinks and wine are top notch. One of the best restaurants in Boston.

I’m so glad I made reservations at Ostra for our anniversary. My husband has an allergy to onion, and the staff was extremely accommodating. They had actually brought out the wrong dish that was made with onion and when he told the waitress, she checked with the cook, gave my husband a menu to choose another dish while he waited if he wanted, and then the manager came over to apologize. He told us that they did in fact have his dish that was made without onion, and he brought it out just a minute later. They comped my husband’s meal, and we enjoyed a free dessert for our anniversary. The paella is AMAZING, and the chocolate torte was the perfect way to end the meal. Thank you for a very special evening that we won’t forget!

Wonderful evening out! The ambiance, food, drinks and service were all amazing. I read a lot of reviews saying they thought it was overrated/overpriced, but I adamantly disagree. The level of service and quality of the food (from the bread/apps to the main courses/desserts) were divine. Exceptional restaurant and looking forward to going back!

Service: Impeccable
Ambience: So aesthetically pleasing. Everything from interior design to the gorgeous plates the food was serviced on. Gorgeous.
Noise level: Next time Im going with another couple, 4 tops are seperate and offer more privacy. The two tops are close together and we had two loud and somewhat drunk talkers next to us which definitely took away from the experience. Not the restaurants fault.
Food: Bring your big pants and wallets, my husband and I had 5 pre-dinner items, entree each with one side to share and one dessert - and he wasnt stuffed. Our favorites: Kumomodo oysters, Hamachi, Grilled Octopus salad. We both ordered monkfish - delicious. Im going back for the scallops next time. Person near me had that and it looked fantastic. My husband wanted the lemon curd dessert, I didnt love the spun sugar "nest" that came on top, it literally hurt to eat it. I would have gone with berries which looked yummy.
Hubby and I have already planned to go back! We loved it!

Creative menu; everything was delicious. Seafood tasted so fresh. We were a group of four. We ordered several dishes to share. The portions of some of the dishes (first courses) are on the small side for sharing, but we made them work. Excellent service.

Food was delicious...baby beets and calamari apps, salmon and Paella entrees. Noise level was very high which made conversation difficult. Service was attentive.

The staff here was terrific and they accommodated our timing given that we were headed to the theater. The food we ordered was very good and they split the entree for those who were sharing. Restaurant is on the high end with regard to cost but honestly if we didn’t have to rush we would have enjoyed it more!

The food and the service were excellent. We had alaskan king crab for 1st course, fish for second. Both of us. One drink, one glass of wine, one soft drink. Nothing else. $300 Definitely not worth it.
