Had hopes going in. They messed up order 5-6 times for group of 9. They served us all the most expensive appetizer despite no one ordering it. When half group said they would eat it they would not take others off table. Charged us anyway. We think. Hard to tell. 4 steaks ordered. All were overdone. Some well done when... More

Great place overall. Staff are nice, well-trained and work hard. They are polite and know the menu. Wine selection is great. My steak was over-done, but hard to do in such a big place. There is an entire upper level, so the restaurant is much bigger than it looks from the outside.

Nice outdoor dining and above average food but our waiter incessantly pushed add ons (lobster with that?). And he never mentioned the prices of the specials so I ended up ordering the $130 entree. I don't mind paying for quality, but the overall feel was to pad the bill.

I was feeling like a culinary adventure so I tried the Steak Tartare. Melted in my mouth. One of the best things I've ever had and can't wait to go back and get it again!

We came to Osetra based on reviews on Trip Advisor and expected a moderately-priced restaurant. First impressions were good. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. Tables were tastefully set out. We were informed of the specials, one of which included surf (lobster tail) and turf (Australian or Japanese wagyu beef). No prices were mentioned. One of us went for the... More

As you can see from my previous review I have not been here since 2011. I decided to return here. I arrived at 7pm for my party of two dinner reservation. We were seated immediately upstairs at a nice table for two overlooking the rail and very large wine storage unit located in the center of the restaurant. I started... More

This places has awesome service, great food and a flying angel in the bar area. It was suggested to us by our hotel and we enjoyed a great dining experience there. Not an inexpensive place but well worth the dollars.

Took my hubby here last night for dinner for his birthday. Marco D took great care of us. We pretty much enjoyed at least an item for every part of the menu and it was all delicious. Since I had booked on OT ahead of time, the table had rose petals, which was a nice touch and after dinner, we... More
