Great Mediterranean flavours, the octopus was excellent, the Gnocchetti with lobster and the Monk fish with truffle amazing. The Wine menu is excellent with a great option of wines by the glass and Champaign by half bottles., prices very good. Our waiter Kelvin was outstanding he new the menu and food selections perfectly and very professional. It is always nice to dine in a fine restaurant where the people working there have pride in their work.

We had a table for six for my son's birthday. Started with oysters and a cheese board which were great, but no better than what you get at most seafood places around town. From there things took a big step up. The seabass tartare was simply transcendent. The (freshly smoking) smoked salmon tartare was nearly as good. All three salads (snow pea, kale, lettuce) were ordered and all three were outstanding. Saffron fettucini and grilled octopus were also amazing, the octopus being as tender and delicate as I have ever had. For main courses two chose the pepper crusted salmon which was super fresh and cooked to just past sushi perfection. The one non-pescaterian had the chicken which, while by no means innovative, was perfectly cooked. I ordered the monkfish which was a generous portion that came bathed in sautéed wild mushrooms. The lobster-like fish was tender and perfect. My son got the scallops, which while delicious and generously portioned (5 large), seemed to have gotten lost in the kitchen and came out 5 minutes after everything else. The best main course of the night was the grilled branzino - tender, delicate, and superbly seasoned. Desserts were excellent - the basil sauce in the snow egg is something I had never quite had before in a dessert and I thought it worked perfectly. A beautiful (and complimentary) assortment of sorbets and a birthday greeting was delivered to my son. The knowledgeable waiter steered us well to a couple of Sancerres that complemented the meal superbly. All in all, it was a great dining experience. Definitely pricey (with tip $800 for 6), but well worth it for a special occasion.

Ostra is an excellent restaurant. We were being visited by our younger son and his significant other, who are foodies. They were impressed and asked to return after last year. They loved the meal options and prep.

The quality of the food was very high. We dine out at some of the best restaurants so when we say the Octopus, Scallop main dish and Paella were excellent. Service was also excellent. Dine here if you would like very good seafood prepared and served just right. There was nothing disappointing at all. Enjoy.

King crab appetizer and 3lb lobster were both very overcooked...crab servinfg was scant...major faux pas for "seafood" restaurant... Waiter served the meal, never checked back and disappeared after delivering the check...Price is not reflective of service or food quality. Too bad ...Great setting, front house staff was excellent...
