Although the restaurant was very crowed, our waitress did her best to accommodate us... Checking in frequently. Glad we ordered appetizers to hold us over before entree, which took a little long. My daughter's local catch fish was excellent. My swordfish was a little overdone, but tasty. Broiled oysters were amazing! Ceviche was very good, but humble in portion size. Overall, this is one of my favorite places to eat in Orlando. So glad to be able to go out and enjoy a meal again!

Have always loved Osprey from the day it opened. Recently had brunch there and it was incredible. We dined on three different dishes and each one was perfection. That kitchen is smoking hot!! Flavors were just right ... hit the palate with pure perfection. Not overwhelming just spot on! Staff is incredible. Manager, Billy Ray Deans is simply marvelous. Osprey is my "cheers"! Highly recommend to everyone!!

Haven't been to the Osprey Tavern for some time. We went to try the happy hour menu with small bites, cocktails and wine. The food was very good, the service excellent and the cocktails and wine adequate, but a good value. The ambience is city chic and we had an enjoyable evening.

Fantastic restaurant with great service and seafood specialties such as whole snapper and aged prime ribeye. Corn chowder and clam chowder and dessert (loved the strawberry ice cream almond cake!) were all on point.

Everything was good but the buns on the sandwiches were blacken, chicken and burger buns were burnt. The rest of the meal was very good.

Everything was wonderful. I had oysters (even found a pearl!), Caesar salad with anchovies, locally source swordfish, and lemon cake for dessert. The food was delicious, beautifully presented, and cooked perfectly. The service was impeccable. I also appreciate the strict safety protocols - is shows that the restaurant cares about their staff and their customers.

Disappointed with the move to seafood; we miss the Parker house rolls that made us fall in love with Osprey at the beginning. :( Would have liked a pasta dish on the menu as we aren’t seafood goers and wanted something other than the (amazing) burger. Fingers crossed the rolls come back - it may be awhile for us to return with the seafood menu switch.

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.

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.
