Love the place and think it’s the best restaurant in Boston. They have great service taste snd quality food
We are repeat customers and are never disappointed. While the ambience was lacking that's entirely due to the COVID restrictions and we also dined just after Thanksgiving so it was quiet anyway. But it was pleasnt enough, which is as much as you can hope for in the current environment. The quality of the food, wine and service were all of a level we have come to expect from Ostra. The hamachi, tartare and octopus were all spectacular. Great flavours. We also had the king crab and the salmon which were also good, but the flavours in the small plates are tough to beat.
as always the food was great and of course neli the bartender gave us great service
Fantastic place! Food and service (thank you Chris!) are always great.
Excellent meal and excellent service. Dining room decor could use a refresher as the white them is looking a l little dingy and dated.
We had the salt crusted branzino highly recommended.
Sea bass tartare were amazing we enjoyed the flavors.
Grilled Spanish octopus one of our favorite.
Warm chocolate torte are to die for.
we ate outdoors (our request). Location is very noisy. will not do it again.
Wonderful menu. Top ambiance and the food spectacular.
Best meat I had in a very long time .. highly recommend it
It’s hard to review a restaurant during COVID as I don’t necessarily think that you get the best representation of their product. However, some things should be consistent even in the pandemic. For instance, my paella shouldn’t be burnt whether or not there is a virus. The seafood was very dry and over 1/2 of the rice was burnt to the bottom of the platter. For $55, it was rather disappointing. Our other items were ok but richly sauced and overly salted (Grilled octopus, king crab risotto, salmon tartare). We were surprised with an anniversary dessert so that was a nice touch. Overall, it was OK, but it was tough to find the value there.
Amazing! Food was spectacular. Service second to none.
Excellent as always! Even better this year as we were able to eat outside the 2nd week of Nov (55-60 degree night) and w heaters. And the maitre d’ was terrific as our car broke down right at the corner in front of the front door, and he dealt w AAA road service and moved the car and more w/o disrupting our dinner while seated outside.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Have adapted well to serving in a COVID and outdoor environment. Was super impressed!
I've been to Ostra a number of times and it never disappoints. The service is great and the food is wonderful. Even during this Covid-19 pandemic, they continue to offer a great and safe environment to enjoy a fantastic night out.
The food was very good but the ambience was disappointing. Ostra is expensive, you go for that dining experience. We were rushed like a diner, quickly serving food. I do not think we will go again. It was not enjoyable!
Some of the best seafood we had in Boston! Excellent presentation from the staff as well- highly recommend this place.
It's all about seafood and there's a great cultural combination of asia and america latina that sort of feels in the food too. The lady that answer the phone was sort of mad at me at more the one point. They sort of wanted us not to go, also after we finish the sort of wanted us to leave, it was a rainy night. But overall it's a nice experience
Amazing! Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and he loved it. The food was delicious.
A very nice night over all
Ostra is one of the few Boston restaurants I will dine at during Covid. The tables are adequately distanced and all Covid precautions are adhered . And of course, the food is fabulous, as always.
Cotuit Oysters, crispy Spanish octopus and the Lobster Gnochetti were all stunning dishes. Fantastic wines by the glass and bottle!
Fantastic, perfectly prepared food. Exquisite oysters. Always have a wonderful meal and experience at Ostra.
Had dinner on the patio so the noise level rating isn’t indicative of inside the restaurant. The waitstaffs were absolutely outstanding! Food was wonderful.
Always perfect in every way and handling the current situation very well.
Best fish restaurant in Boston with an exceptional wine list. The French red and white burgundies to choose from are amazing.
Fantastic experience, incredible meal and excellent service.
Excellent food and the wait staff went above and beyond! They dragged over additional heat lamps so we were cozy!
Thank you for an amazing birthday dinner!
I don't believe in services like OpenTable forcing customers to write review comments.
We were sitting outside and my girlfriend asked the server many times to move the torch closer to our table but was ignored.
Great restaurant with amazing food and one of the best service.
Always a great meal. The Hamachi Crudo, Lobster Gnochetti and Salt Crusted Bronzino are among the best dishes in Boston. The old octopus preparation was tastier than the current one, however. Great meal, professional service.
Excellent food and presentation, great service and elegant ambience. Very satisfied with my visit!
If you like fish (as I do) this is the most delicious restaurant in Boston. Each dish we ordered was exceptional as were the sauces (herbs and other tasty ingredients). We ordered the sea bass tartare (absolutely yummy!!!), the octopus and monkfish - each and every one of them delicious and original...Service was as great as the food. Thank you. Will be back very soon.
Delicious meal and great service.
Great experience, we sat at the bar and were very well served. Spanish Octopus was delicious followed by Sea Bream. We’ll be back real soon.
Everything was on point. Three cheers for everyone at Ostra!!!
It was a lovely birthday experience for my son and me. Service was great and food was delicious. Highly recommend celebrating your special occasion at Ostra
Klebert our waiter made the experience incredible. The food was also outstanding.
Best choice for fine dining in Boston. Food was phenomenal! Service and ambience was excellent! Can’t say enough about this restaurant and would definitely come back. Don’t pass this place up if you’re in the area.
