Incredible! A true 5-star dining experience. We visited to celebrate my 25th birthday and the meal was phenomenal. From the service to the ambience to the dishes -- everything was spectacular. I would recommend Ostra to anyone looking for a classy, delicious, exquisite dinner.

Best high end seafood restaurant in Boston. All dishes we ordered were cooked to perfection, full of flavor without overseasoning and the quality of the underlying ingredients is evident. Very accommodating to gluten-free needs as well.

I sat at the bar, alone on a Saturday night. The bartenders were phenomenal and made me the best drinks. I ordered dinner it was absolutely amazing. My salmon tartare was delicious with a beautiful presentation and my filet was cooked perfectly.

The food was phenomenal. Sea bass tartare (with truffle) was like nothing I’ve ever had before … beautifully done and delectable. Octopus was amazing. I had the monkish for dinner and it was incredible. My husband has the paella and enjoyed it. Service was attentive, friendly and impeccable. Well done all round!

This is the seafood lover’s version of Mistral with excellent steak. Mistral has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Boston and now Ostra joins them at the top. The calamari was a little too crispy but everything else was exceptional, especially the bread.

All courses were excellent. Gourmet seafood offerings. Had their daily special seafood tomato based soup. Tasted various seafood items (Shrimp, scallops,etc). Only complaint was appeared very salty or was it the tomato base...otherwise excellent & kept piping warm/hot due to hot soup bowl. Crispy oyster appetizer with aioli sauce was great with plenty (6) for table sharing. Steak tantare was also very good. The monkfish & branzini entrees were excellent. The cauliflower side dish was uniquely presented & flavored. The desserts were excellent & well presented...snow egg & chocolate torte. Snow egg was like a tasty web/candy cotton texture with basil sauce. Very unique. The torte was like a molten lava cake...a chocolate lovers delight. We won’t talk about price...definitely high end (expensive) gourmet.

Food is great. The service was ok. Servers reached over me and didn't know whose food was whose( although I heard the main waiter tell them) The waiter also spilled my drink on my menu etc. Seemed to be too rushed. We had a nice quiet corner, but was so dark you couldn't read the menu. I would go back though because overall it is very nice. We had been there before and experienced better service.

Pleasant experience and amazing food. Will definitely be back again. Must try the tuna tartare and the ricotta gnochetti. Food was sent out in waves but timed perfectly.

The most amazing dining experience I have ever had! From the service, to the courses of the most delectable menu choices we made from Appetizers to Salads to Dinner and Desserts. A wonderful Dining Room Manager Diana was the most professional and accommodating to make us feel really special!

We had an amazing Anniversary dinner. Food was impeccable! Manager went out of his way to find us a quiet table for distancing and the server was truly outstanding. Will be back soon! Try out the meringue dessert. It was artwork. Also try the metronome cocktail!! Duxbury and Wellfleet oysters!!
