Excellent food and the wait staff went above and beyond! They dragged over additional heat lamps so we were cozy!
Thank you for an amazing birthday dinner!
I don't believe in services like OpenTable forcing customers to write review comments.
We were sitting outside and my girlfriend asked the server many times to move the torch closer to our table but was ignored.
Great restaurant with amazing food and one of the best service.
Always a great meal. The Hamachi Crudo, Lobster Gnochetti and Salt Crusted Bronzino are among the best dishes in Boston. The old octopus preparation was tastier than the current one, however. Great meal, professional service.
Excellent food and presentation, great service and elegant ambience. Very satisfied with my visit!
If you like fish (as I do) this is the most delicious restaurant in Boston. Each dish we ordered was exceptional as were the sauces (herbs and other tasty ingredients). We ordered the sea bass tartare (absolutely yummy!!!), the octopus and monkfish - each and every one of them delicious and original...Service was as great as the food. Thank you. Will be back very soon.
Delicious meal and great service.
Great experience, we sat at the bar and were very well served. Spanish Octopus was delicious followed by Sea Bream. We’ll be back real soon.
Everything was on point. Three cheers for everyone at Ostra!!!
It was a lovely birthday experience for my son and me. Service was great and food was delicious. Highly recommend celebrating your special occasion at Ostra
Klebert our waiter made the experience incredible. The food was also outstanding.
superb paella, salad, dessert, professional and courteous staff.
best paella in the region.
Best choice for fine dining in Boston. Food was phenomenal! Service and ambience was excellent! Can’t say enough about this restaurant and would definitely come back. Don’t pass this place up if you’re in the area.
Cocktails,oysters,hamchi, octopus, lobster and monk fish with sautéed greens and currants. Every bite was delicious. I brought dessert home and ate it in my PJ’s. I’m looking forward to my next visit already
Lovely wine selection and the service was excellent. Had a number of small plates. The tuna tartare was delish
My top 1 spot in Boston.
Without a doubt, one of the best dining experiences in the country. Both the kitchen and the wait staff, never cease to amaze us. A truly amazing place. Kudos to all.
Amazing food and service from start to finish! All of the seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. We had the Hamachi crudo and fried oysters and both were divine. Paella and lobster gnocchi for dinner were both fabulous.
On top of the delicious food, the service was very attentive and professional.
It had been over a year that I had not been to Ostra. The food was just as amazing as I remembered! The only only difference was the ambiance had changed because of all the Covid regulations. Still had a great time though.
It was great. Given the COVID circumstances, they kept a high level of service and quality
The food and service are outstanding!
Food was amazing
Food was Great! service very good.
I wish noise levels would be lower.
But that is the problem of most Restaurants in US.
Please make restaurants quieter. Put nice carpet and level of noice will drop significantly.
Sea Bass Tartare - very good starter.
Grilled Sea Bream in Trevisano Leaf. - outstanding pice of fish. Last time I had something this good was is southern France.
Warm Chocolate Torte - good ( not outstanding)
Cappuccino- wry good.
Composition and presentation of food was great.
Service - very good.
Noise- considering quality of food and service and price I wish would be quieter inside.
value? : considering location food and service - very good
Would I recommend it. yes. Yes. YES.
Great service and excellent seafood. Wine selection by the glass had great variety to choose from instead of a handful of basic ones.
Excellent food and service. Expensive but worth it for a special dinner. We ate outside for safety and the staff appeared well versed in Covid 19 precautions.
Really amazing food, and what really sets Ostra apart is the service. We asked for entrees to share and they divided it up on separate plates with their own sides. Would recommend for any occasion
The Paella was overcooked & over salted. Disappointing for a $52 entree
The food and service has always been consistent and immaculate. Definitely one of my top restaurants to go to. HIGHLY RECOMMEND 👌🏾
Service was very attentive and timing of our courses was spot on.
Lovely evening outside!
Great night! The food was awesome along with the service.
Always a wonderful experience at Ostra. Outstanding food and staff.
Pretty much the rip off I know it to be, $22 for oysters? You can buy them for a buck 50 at the fishmarket. On street dining is way too noisy, cold, Not worth the money for sure
Everything was excellent. Our waitress (I believe Lauren) was amazing and so courteous and professional. The food was delicious and perfect. Every waiter and waitress was extremely attentive. The prices might be expensive, however they are totally justified when the food is of such high quality, and the service is also on par.
I recommend this place 100%.
Best seafood around. I recommend the sea bream.
Ostra succeeds at providing diners with outstanding service and excellent food. The crispy oyster appetizer is delicious and you must try the paella, expensive but worth it. We plan to return.
Perfect! The food and the attention from Cristian was awesome.
Honestly the best meal and service experience I’ve had in a very long time.
The food was phenomenal and cooked perfectly (Kusshi & Powder Point raw oysters, grilled Spanish octopus, filet mignon and warm chocolate torte). The grilled Spanish octopus had a melding of flavors that was so unexpected and delicious, a must have.
We sat outside and some motorcycles going by were loud but didn’t distract too much from dinner.
The staffs attention and knowledge was above and beyond my expectations.
I can’t wait for another visit to Boston just so I can go back.
