New Chef and menu. Not what it once was (used to have a fantastic pork chop - no longer on the menu)...branzino was average and the fish and chips were passable at best (but not for $18). Seems they’re still working through a few things in the kitchen. Excellent old fashion (at least that hasn’t changed) and the server was top notch. Too many seafood focused restaurants around with far better food execution.

Worst service in Orlando. Ordered raw oysters and it took 40 minutes for them to arrive. And they never asked for our entree orders.

New chef, new menu?! This always very stylish restaurant got a menu makeover. Oysters, octopus, and calamari! Start your gathering with this trifecta that won’t disappoint. Continue the theme with scallops for dinner or make a departure and opt for the steak. Excellent service and knowledgeable servers. Beverage menu is extensive.

I went with my mother to have shrimp and grits and after ordering that waiter came back and told us that they did not have anymore shrimp. I was disappointed and it ruined my valentines day as it was too late to go anywhere else for brunch

Osprey is consistent with food quality and service. However these days, I would love to see restaurants putting an extra effort to demonstrate their customers that they care about hygiene. For example wiping tables before they seat the customers would be a good measure. I hope Osprey starts doing this

How can a restaurant replace the most popular item on their menu? I am talking about what was a spectacular wood fired pork chop. They have discontinued it. We were just shocked when told it had been replaced with a pork roast. So we ordered the pork roast. Not nearly as good. I don’t know why this was done but if it was due to a price increase charge us more but don’t do a foolhardy thing of just dumping the most popular item on your menu. Trust me. Your pork chop was why we came to your restaurant repeatedly. BRING IT BACK!

Service was slow and non caring. Instead of herbal tea I was given regular caffeinated tea late in the venting and stayed up awake all night.
Burger was dry and without flavor. Supposedly well known grilled oysters were cold and not much flavor to speak of.
Good luck getting server’s attention. They appear uncoordinated and under trained. Rapid decline overall since I first started coming to this place.

Great food & nice atmosphere, however was in a bit of a rush (although there was lots of open seating with no waitlist) signaling us to leave which gave off an "unwelcoming" experience.

Unfortunately didn’t really hit the mark for us. Service was good ambiance was nice however the oysters and chicken wing appetizer where not good for us. The entrees where nice tile fish and brazing. The dessert wasn’t worth it.

We went for brunch and we thought it took a while for the waiter to come over to greet us so we sat for a bit waiting. Took a while to get our coffee once ordered. We started off with the donut holes with strawberry sauce. The sauce was the highlight as the donuts themselves had zero flavor. They put such a light Dusting of powdered sugar that they missed most the donuts (not that that made a flavor difference). The main courses were cold, so that was highly disappointing. If you look at the atmosphere you think you’re in a high-class restaurant. They even have heat lamps, so we couldn’t understand why the Benedict and the waffle were not hot. The restaurant was busy but it was not packed so the amount of customers really had nothing to do with it. And they’ve been open for a while so I would tend to think that they know how to handle the crowd and their brunch. Anyway, the waffle wasn’t bad - nothing to write home about. I had to request maple syrup and my wife and I laughed because apparently syrup and coffee creamer are like liquid gold to this restaurant- such small pre-portioned amounts one almost feels guilty using them (or getting more ha). I took a picture to reference the size of the coffee v. Syrup v. Cream. The Benedict had a sweet tomato jam and the Canadian bacon was also sweet so couple of those two together and the Benedict was entirely too sweet. I will say they did do a nice job on the poached eggs (they weren’t over done). Anyway, we won’t be going back for brunch. It just wasn’t impressive.
