I had the stuffed haddock and the stuffing was cold although it tasted pretty good. My wife had the chicken marsala and the sauce was to thick and clumpy.....
Have eaten here on a couple of occasions and will certainly go back. Two suggestions for the chef - tuna appetizer could be of higher quality. Tasty but had a gristle vein. Wife had the filet and it was okay. Not as tender as expected. Very nice place and would recommend. For the cost - higher quality.
Really good food and great service and atmosphere. The live piano player was a nice touch. A little pricey but worth it.
Wonderful restaurant with creative menu, excellent staff and fantastic ambiance. A must visit when in Augusta
Have been twice and thoroughly loved both times...great atmosphere and decor
Great food, everyone’s dish was well presented and delishous. Wonderful service. The dining room was upscale casual to dressy, cozy and romantic. I look forward to warm months to sit out overlooking the river. A little pricy but worth it for a special occasion.
Lovely atmosphere. Chicken marsala, blueberry salad and chocolate torte were fabulous. Scallops with polenta and asparagus were good but not great. Very nice option in Augusta.
Good food. Very welcoming, nice and attentive service.
Otto's is overall a wonderful experience. Small and intimate with outstanding food. We enjoyed the lounge area and soft piano music.
Very nice spot. The food and service were excellent. They were very attentive.
I liked the portion size, but several at the table felt the portions could be a bit smaller with some corresponding drop in price.
We enjoyed the entire dining experience.
Service was excellent. Our waiter was very respectful and attentive. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent, however we thought dinner was way over priced. Going for lunch is a better deal as we have had lunch there before.
The atmosphere is upscale but friendly, great live keyboard player and very welcoming staff. Service was excellent as was the food. What a great find in Augusta!
We have been to Otto’s for a couple for special occasions and a few times for lunch. We have always loved the food and service. Good choice of wine and mixed cocktails also. Great value overall!!
Beautiful presentation, meals were delicious! I was a bit disappointed that food was not delivered hot, but well prepared. Huge, sweet tender scallops over grilled polenta. Scallops perfect- polenta was disappointed~ more like custard to me. Others had duck breast and beef dish- we all left happy and will come back!
A pleasant surprise. The appetizers, salads and entrees were very good. The risotto was a bit over salted but still very good. My seared tuna was great and my wife and friends had seared scallops and chicken Marsala - all very good. The decor was very nice - the bathrooms could use an update. The server was inexperienced but very helpful and did a good job. Local wines is a nice touch. Would certainly recommend and will certainly go again.
Appetizers were outstanding(Escargot and Tuna Otto). Entree was cold(Beef Filet Mignon). Heard mixed reviews from friends, went there to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were only one of two couples in the place so it wasn't busy. Don't think we will go back.
Ottis is a true fine dining experience in Augusta: food quality,wine pairing and flavor was outstanding. Don’t miss it
Exceptional food with knowledgeable attentive service,in a very nice setting with varied beverage selections. Very memorable summer evening.
Very good food and very nice atmosphere. Excellent service.
Third visit with friends and very pleased again. Sophisticated preparation and delicious menu.
We started meal outside but along with entrée came lots of flies so we moved inside. We both had fish although my wife's haddock was dry.
Reviews were stellar for this place so maybe it was just a really bad day for the kitchen. Reuben had very little corned beef and dressing tasted spoiled. Watermelon in the grilled watermelon salad was pale and was not fresh. Haddock sandwich had about 2 ounces of fish on very large pieces of bread. All in all - very disappointing.
Great food, great service. It was a Sunday evening so very quiet. We had a nice conversation with the owner. The menu is small but with good variety. The wine list was also small, but with good, out of the ordinary wines. The dining room is beautiful, with a view of the river.
Loved this place.
Great decor and ambiance. Service a bit disorganized, but they tried hard. Nice staff. Food could have been warmer.
I had the scallops which were delicious. ALso I made the reservation on line and had to change the time. When I called there was no problem doing that and we were greeted by name. I loved the ambiance and the presentation of the food. One member suggested that the bread needed improvement.
We had a great time there. A delicious leisurely meal. Kudos to the chef. We had two of the starters and three of the scrumptios entres
Wonderful restaurant. Nice menu, great food, nice atmosphere.
I would have given everything 5 stars except for 2 missteps: they said they had had a very busy lunch so we're out of parm cheese. They are 2 miles from grocery stores so no excuse for not having gotten some cheese; my friend ordered an appetizer and a salad for dinner but was served the appetizer before the meal which was awkward since the others at the table were not yet served.
This is exactly what Augusta needed. There aren’t many independently owned restaurants in Augusta, they are mostly chains. The atmosphere was great, the food was very good with great presentation, and the service was attentive and friendly. We live in Winthrop and used to have to drive to Waterville or Lewiston for an experience like this. I’m so glad it’s in Augusta, it will be our regular spot now. Definitely worth the trip.
We went for Father's Day. Wanted to hear The Court Jesters, so we ate at the bar. Wonderful service and great food. We would go again.
we enjoyed our food...my salmon was cooked to perfection...presentation very nice...tasted wonderful...our server Andrew was first rate....the piano music was just right...very nice ...relaxing...only hitch I had was calling a cell phone and leaving a message for a reservation...no call back so I went online and made the reservation in that manner...perhaps the cell phone needs to be a house phone....I was very sorry to see so few diners on a Saturday evening....it surprised me....I want this to be a successful business as I see it as galvanizing other businesses on the street and attracting new businesses such as an independent book store and a natural food market....thank you...Linda C.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Will continue to patronize. Good to have such a wonderful restaurant in Augusta! Please try it!
Beautiful inside. It all ended after our appetizer down hill. We live in the area and make it a point to support our locals. Otto's has been around for less than a year. It was my wife's birthday so we gave it a shot. I ordered the scallops with risotto. Scallops were over-cooked actually crusty on the outside and no soft center. The risotto was a pile of mush and tasteless. My wife had the filet again crusty on the outside and not at all tender, I mean the entire piece not able to chew. I ordered the cheesecake, hummmm, it was like a coagulated creamy jello. Needless to say we will not return.
Wonderful restaurant for dinner or lunch, have been to both. Elegant dining with friendly service. Can't say enough about how nice this place is, make sure you go.
We were looking for a nice place to celebrate a new job; the food was excellent (scallops and halibut) but we thought the prices were high for this area. The seafood was high but we expected that; the salads were overpriced.
Went for my Dads 91st Birthday. Service was great, met the owner who is very visible in the restaurant, had a nice chat about his grandson Otto. Food was great and reasonably priced.
Some tap beers would be a great add.
We for sure will be back.
It was first time and it was also my birthday, enjoy the decor of the restaurant and the food my excellent!
There were six in our party, quiet evening, music a touch loud for small crowd. Our table had a variety of food items, all reports were the entrees were very, very good, and good presentation . One person had dessert and again very good. Good wine list with a modrerate price. You will definitely see us again.
