As always Ostra doesn’t disappoint. Excellent meal and service.
Favorite restaurant in Boston! Everything was perfect, except for the dessert (but that's okay)!
Really nice, food was spectacular and also the service!
Food was excellent. We've had better service at Ostra in the past but it was Mother's Day and quite busy. If they know the white wine is not as cold as it should be when served, then not serve it right away.
Very thoughtful restaurant and professional service! We had a wonderful birthday dinner there!
Outstanding menu and service that exceeded all expectations. The food was the best we enjoyed in Boston by far. Great dinner!
We are out-of-towners, but we notice that waiters are usually blah everywhere in Boston. Our server in Ostra was a robot. Food was great though. Overpriced and small portioned, but tasted good nonetheless. The amount of wine they give you in a cup was laughable. I double checked with the waiter and about it, and he confirmed that it's the right amount of wine in the cup. Just be ready to spend some good amount. We spent a little under $175 for 2... And that's with 2 wine cups.
Superb food, well prepared. Each dish was fresh. Extensive wine list. Expensive but consistently excellent.
a truly interesting and creative cuisine. Thoroughly enjoyed it
What an amazing place. Service was excellent and the food was superb. Definitely a place we will be coming back too.
Amazing ambiance but food and service were under par
Ostra is always outstanding. A little expensive..but it's worth it!!
This is a very professional operation with regard to both food and service. It is expensive. The only problem was the noise level.
Portion sizes are way too small for the cost of the dishes. I ordered the snapper and it came with half a tiny potato and half a tiny turnip. The snapper was presented in 3 small pieces. A little shocking for me
A great meal, but expensive. (A great place for special occasions.)
We have been to Ostra, one of our favorites, numerous times. If even possible, this time was the best. Every single service interaction was delightful, every bite of food delicious, the table and pacing was great. Fantastic!! We can't wait to go back. Thank you to the Ostra staff for making such a wonderful evening.
Definitely s place to go for a special occasion, though first time there, didn’t know what to expect beyond the menu. Service was terrific throughout. Food very good. Menu has something for everyone, but I would consider things pricy. Food came out timely, was piping hot, and very good. Will go back sometime, but with all of the great restaurants in the downtown area, it may be a while before I get back.
The restaurant is so sophisticated and the menu has so many choices. Everything we have ever tried there is delicious. What stood out for us on this trip to Ostra was the hospitality. Our servers were excellent and so pleasant. They added so much to an already near perfect dining experience. We can't wait to return soon! Thank you.
Excellent food and always fresh! Best seafood restaurant in Boston.
One of the best restaurants in Boston, if not THE best. Everything from the food to the service was outstanding
Oysters were great. Very disappointed in the Paella, not likely to return. Over priced for marginal food, at best.
Consistently awesome. Top 5 restaurants in Boston.
Always a good experience.
The service was top-notch, and the dishes were innovative and delicious. We noted that we were sharing most items, and our server had the kitchen divide & plate them separately so we both enjoyed the beautiful presentation. I’m generally not a big dessert person, but their strawberry rhubarb sorbet was dreamy!
This is a great sea food restaurant in Boston! Possibly the best! I have been here three times in two years and I think it is amazing! Furthermore they are really cool about sharing dishes - and the service is excellent!
Service was outstanding and the staff surprised us with a desert that said “happy anniversary” as I had noted the occasion on our reservation. That was a really nice touch!
Some of the food was amazing...the grilled octopus in particular as well as the hamachi. The paella was just ok.
Our seating was in an area that was very close to another couple so that was a little awkward when they started arguing. Would have preferred a little more of a secluded spot.
Overall a very nice meal.
Always amazing. Never disappints.
I ventured to Ostra based on Trip Advisor which I find fairly reliable. From the moment the door opened until it closed behind us when we left, the dining experience was top notch. Professional is the word that describes every moment of the unobtrusive attention we received during the entire meal. Every course was beautifully plated, delicious and plentiful.
Ostra is definitely worth a visit..and, the best part-we never felt rushed and the food was spaced with plenty of time for drink and conversation.
Very expensive and uneven service. Lounge service was horrible. Meal was very good but not up to the level expected based upon reviews.
Ostra is a favorite to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. The food is absolutely delicious and the service and room elegant. A special restaurant indeed.
Great time and great service.
Very good. Seafood is excellent, the service is outstanding. This is an excellent place to have an expensive, but well-worth it dining experience. So glad we went. Also, I have celiacs and they had many great choices for me.
Great service to add to an extensive range of wine selections and wonderful food in its creativity, presentation and taste.
Ostra is expensive, but worth the fine dining experience. Both food and service were excellent. The specialty is seafood and the fish I had was outstanding. The menu offers many fish choices, lobster and oysters and clams. It also includes a chicken dish and 2 beef dish choices. The ambiance is very good. It was full of diners on a Tuesday evening with good energy and a bit noisy, rather than quiet.
Very attentive service, great food, very nice atmosphere. Really enjoyed it.
Food very good with exception of salmon which was no better than what we’d cook at home. Octopus very good.
Cocktails pricey and and too generous with ice — bit of an insult that.
Delicious food and excellent service.
Great food and awesome service. Reservation was for 5:30, first of the dinner service-that didn’t go as well. They ran behind to start seating. A little frustrating but worth the wait
