We sat outside by choice and the city traffic was very loud. Food presentation was beautiful, but our entrees were very salty. Several servers & wait staff we’re at our table—I think we counted 8 people total who took care of us. However, the waiter also had tables inside, for the price of the meals, we would expect the main waitstaff to be more attentive—but understandably he was working in two different, completely independent areas.
Went to a show at Wilbur and had dinner at ostra. Lobster gnocchi is always fantastic. The raw fish appetizers were delicious. Desserts were delicious especially the chocolate one.
Food and service was amazing; ambient noise was little high but food and service definitely puts it to background..
Consistently outstanding. Food is fresh a d flavorful. Accommodated my GF/DF restrictions without sacrificing taste. When a person from an adjacent table got up to leave, he accidentally knocked over my partially filled glass of wine and the contents got all over my husband and his food. The restaurant replenished my wine in a new wine glass and offered to prepare a new dish for my husband to which he politely declined. Upon receiving the bill at the end of the meal, they covered all of our drinks! Ostra is a first class restaurant! Go and prepare yourself for a royal experience!
The food at Ostra was impeccable as always; it comes out slightly slower than at other places and on busy nights it can be a bit more of a wait, but be sure that it is because the wonderful staff takes painstaking efforts to make every dish perfect.
Well the setting is very cool and modern the staff is very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious
Me and my boyfriend were visiting Boston and were browsing dinner restaurants and decided to try Ostra! After booking, a couple local friends told us this was one of their favorite restaurants so we felt we had made a good decision ☺️ upon arriving we realized we could not have made a better decision! The restaurant was gorgeous and the service was immediately outstanding. Our server was well educated on all of the food and wine and provided some great recommendations (he started us off with the oysters and a French wine to pair with and the flavor combo was to die for)! I can easily say this was one of the best meals I've ever had and one of the most amazing restaurants I've ever been to. While in the restroom I was talking to a woman who was seated nearby and we both were raving about the food and restaurant over all! It was her first time as well and we agreed we were absolutely blown away by this place. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Boston.
Excellent food and wine selection. Will definitely be back
Very good food and service, highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an excellent restaurant with great service.
Fantastic! Will be back!!!
High quality ingredients and elegant presentation
Outdoor patio on a noisy street but still worth it
We went because we had enjoyed excellent paella in the past. This time it was overcooked, the chorizo was blackenned and the entire dish too dry. Also, there was little saffron flavor. The lobster and gnocchi was excellent.
Outstanding food. We started with the pea pod salad, which was delicious and refreshing. For mains, we had bronzino and paella. Both were delicious. Portions are large, so you may want to consider sharing; we did that for the salad. Service was impeccable and attentive. I truly think this is one of the best restaurants in Boston. The only reason I rated lower for ambience was that we ate outside (my choice). The outdoor seating area is not as private as some other outdoor restaurant seating and the traffic is somewhat noisy.
The service and food quality are outstanding, highly recommend!
So this is a favorite of mine but diaappointwd this time. Hostess was disorganized. Service unusually slow. Salmon at the very wrong end of fresh . . . . surprisingly average this time at a premium price point . . . one bright apot the Beuller cab sac was exceptionally good. Hoping for better next time.
Another great meal at Ostra. Enjoyed the preparation of monkfish. We make it a point to dine here when in Boston
Love the ambiance. The food and service was wonderful. Great staff and the dessert was excellent.
Every dish was fabulous. Very high quality. Martinis were a little watery but decent. We had an most enjoyable meal and evening.
Great service, ur server gave us very good recommendations about the wine, the food was amazing.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Ostra and the food and service was outstanding. Every employee was so courteous!
One of the best restaurants in Boston- they do everything very well.
A bit noisy but attractive
The place is not too big. The tables are pretty close but still it wasn’t too noisy. The service is impeccable. The food is delicious.
A truly lovely evening. Important business dinner. The service was great. The Som helped me pick a great Chablis at a decent price. Our head waiter help me order for the table. The Oysters were amazing. As was the branzino, crudo , Alaska crab and seafood pasta. It was a little loud
Great bar, food, and service. Major drawback was the noise. Absolutely need to install ceiling/wall noise reduction panels. Sounded like we were at a circus.
Monk fish was excellent. Lobster and gnocchi was fantastic. Wine selection excellent but very over priced. Our waitress was not attentive and very slow to get to the table initially and failed to follow up often Don't know her name but she had a very unappealing black nose ring
We enjoyed thoroughly.
The food was awesome and our server was very nice.
Amazing food and service. One draw back was people on laptops in the restaurant.
The server knew the menu well and his suggestions were on point. Everything we ordered including the steak was out of this world. Can't wait until our next visit.
One of our favorite restaurants in Boston, great seafood. This is not your everyday dinning its a true experience with amazing service and food. We started off with the Gnocchi with lobster which they split for two then for dinner the Sea Bream. For dessert my husband had the chocolate molten cake I had the cheese cake pictured which was to die for make sure you visit this restaurant it’s amassing
Fantastic food, fantastic staff!
The preparation, ingredients and quality of the food was exquisite and delicious. Service was over the top. staff was pleasant, attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Loved it!
Always a special occasion when we visit Ostra. Hoshang and the entire staff are exceptionally friendly and professional. My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary at Ostra and had yet another memorable evening.
A fabulous place. Our waitress, Caitlin, was simply great. All fish dishes we ordered were #chefskiss perfect. Oysters, Salmon tartare, Tuna tartare, spanish octopus and lobster pasta were simply amazing. I was less impressed with the filet mignon, too buttery and salty. Overall a wonderful evening. The staff turned down the music at our request and the rest of the evening was perfect.
