Lovely food and delightful to eat it on China rather than out of little take out containers but the noise level is up to beyond prepandemic levels and is barely tolerable- it is beyond Ny restaurant noise levels
Second visit and again Ostra does not disappoint. The salmon and filet mignon were both fantastic. Thanks for another memorable dining experience…soup to nuts!
Very fine food
Ostra is always on 100% everything about this place is perfection. Do not miss an opportunity to eat here because it will change your life!
Outstanding meal and service
Great food! Great service! Lovely experience! Will be back.
One of my favorites in Boston. Exceptional seafood and great cocktails
Can't go wrong ordering anything here
While expensive, you leave saying what a great meal. Highly recommended.
Amazing service, even better food. Will most definitely be back.
Favorite restaurant in Boston - always great food, wonderful staff and beautiful
Perhaps the finest restaurant in Boston. I could rave about the service, food, cocktails and wine list, but you should just try it for yourself. Treat youself.
So good! Wish there was more salmon tartare on the plate
I visited this place with family but I found it to be very nice place for taking a date . Overall it was a great experience
Server was very good. All dishes were prepared well. Drinks were too expensive
Food was great, well presented and flavors were extremely well balanced. Staff were knowledgeable and pleasant. Value was just not there.
Food and atmosphere are unbelievable. One of the best spots for seafood in the city.
Great food. Excellent service. Nice atmosphere
Highly recommend for anyone who loves good food
The oyster selection, drink selection, wine list and approach to using seasonal vegetables with current entrees is outstanding. The team were professional, kind, well versed on on the menu and have a fantastic approach. They are happy to help with recommendations when asked and their timing is perfect. Thank you to Hoshang and team for a great night.
Fantastic service and delicious food - will certainly be returning
I had an amazing time,the server was heaven
We were promptly seated at our table. The staff was accommodating and efficient. All of us enjoyed our dinner very much.
This is probably the best fancy seafood restaurant in Boston right now. The raw fish starters are top notch. Great wine list. Some will probably complain it is too expensive, but there is plenty of lower cost fish slop right down the street, so go there if you want value.
Hospitable and helpful server who seemed genuinely interested in our enjoyment. Excellent food beautifully served.
Paella was fantastic. Ambience was classy modern. Service was spot on. Highly recommend for special occasion. Will be back next time in town.
Great food! Octopus, paella and branzino. Great wine list, had a French Burgundy.
Fish was fresh and creatively prepared. Everything was delicious! Outdoor patio is a bit noisy from traffic.
Wonderful experience once again.
Muy buena atencion, ambiente muy tranquilo y los platos abundantes .
Lo mejor fueron las ostras y el salmon con champinones
Our table was ready on time, didn’t see a server for roughly 10-15 minutes after being sat. Ordered some apps which came out accordingly. I ordered the 60 day dry aged steak at approximately 7:45 and at 8:45 asked another server what was taking so long. I figured based on the menu description I was getting a decent size thickness on it. It came out about 10 minutes after I asked. Paper thin, so.. that made me more intrigued why it took so long at the temp I ordered. Med. rare. It came to the table med well. The server apologized and asked if I wanted a new one. I declined. The manager came over apologized and offered us dessert which was amazing.
Also took it off the bill. I just feel as if the steak even cooked correctly wouldn’t be worth the money!
Top notch food and service with prices to match but well worth it
Always excellent food and service! Love being outside, tough to be on the street but worth it to dine outside! GREAT meal!
Salt encrusted branzino is to die for
As always, awesome experience. Tuna tartare was amazing and same for grilled octopus. Grilled branzino was so delicate and delicious. Warm chocolate cake provided a great finish! Service was impeccable. Certainly one of the Best of Boston right now!
We got a tuna tartare, octopus, and Monkfish, and a Snow egg dessert. The food was overall very good, only thing the octopus was quite salty mainly because the capers used in the sauce were very salty. Apart from that, really really good. Bread was also very good.
Service was excellent. We shared our dishes (I was with my wife), and each time they presented us directly two half-portions.
On the pricey side, but overall commensurate the the quality of food, service, and ambience (indoor).
Food is always excellent- beautiful and delicious!
Everting was spot on from food, service and ambiance. The only miss was that there was no gesture or whatsoever in congratulating my wife’s birthday even though we said that’s what came here for in our reservation
The food was fantastic and our server Margaret was so helpful and friendly.
I’ll preface this review with the fact that we moved our reservation to accommodate a friend who wanted to join us. We moved the time and guest count, but the person who made that change didn’t update to a 3-top. They seemed stumped when we arrived and put us at a 6-top on the street; not exactly the intimate setting for conversation and we did not care for that treatment in the slightest.
The food, itself, was well-executed and the wine list - even by the glass - was more extensive than most. Our server was a great combination of serious and casual; which can be a hard line to walk.
The service is impeccable and very attentive. The food is very fresh and delicious. The cocktails list is more than adequate meeting everyone's needs. The aged rib eye steak is delicious and the grilled branzino is cooked to perfection. The desserts are all tasted great.
FANTASTIC. Great cocktails, fluke Crudo specialty app and delicious oysters were the perfect match for our Tequila starters. The main course consisted off Ricotta Gnochetti and the famous Paella. Cannot recommend this enough to our Mediterranean restaurant lovers.
