Amazing food!! Everything was delicious, and the service is impeccable.
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.
Was a great meal in a nice setting. Very busy but they were on their game and everything was spot on! Excellent food and service.
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!
Everything... Food, service and ambiance... Is great. One of our favorites
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.
excellent oyster, crab and paella. and outstanding service
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.
Amazing food , amazing service ! Exceptional time !!
We had a wonderful time! The food was delicious, the service great and the ambiance was very nice and soothing!
Amazing! Everything we ordered was perfect.
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.
Food was great, and service was great. Overall a good place for occasions such as anniversaries and fine dining.
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.
Kitchen delivered unfortunately the lack of service and drink/food delay made any pleasure of food invalid. Beyond disappointing
When my friend comes to town, we try all the fine dining restaurants we can. Ostra just took the #1 spot over the past 5 years. Definitely my new favorite!
Fabulous food, great service and fun energetic atmosphere!
Amazing experience. Second time to Ostra and both were great. Highly recommend when you’re looking for a nice dinner downtown before a show or just because.
Favorite place in Boston. Seafood is amazing - actually all the food is amazing.
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!
Exemplary service, fantastic ambiance, and exceptional seafood. Will return
Simply outstanding! The fresh oysters were icy cold and the fried ones...OMG :)
Wonderful service and romantic atmosphere.
Fun night and the service and food was great
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!!
The food was over priced and nothing special. Good meal and and nice place. Just priced way above value.
Great Restaurant. Polished, Excellent Service, Exquisite Food.
