I ate here with a group of nine for a business function. We received outstanding service and the staff was extremely helpful in navigating the menu and special offerings. Most of us selected seafood and found it fresh and well prepared. Do note that the prices are high but for a special occasion the experience is worth it.

Absolutely love their food there. Their valet parking staff are super nice. It's always crowded in this place, but it also means they have really good food.

Seafood appetizers were extremely fresh, presentation was very nice and food was delicious. Ambiance was lovely and the wine selection was exceptional. Waitress was extremely accommodating and the remaining courses were fabulous. Thanks for a great experience!

I recently took a group of 60 to eat at Osetra. We had to top floor to ourselves and the set up was nice. Staff was very accommodating to our group. The food was definitely great, but when I received the final bill I about fell out of my seat. I knew it was going to be expensive, but wow... More

Went here for a business event. In full disclosure, we had a limited menu due to the number in our group. I had Mahi Mahi, and my associate had chicken. Both dishes were excellent, but the lobster mashed potatoes were amazing. The staff was also great, and did a phenomenal job of keeping up with all of us.

We went for dinner a few nights ago, our last night in San Diego. After devouring some outstanding fish meals we all agreed that Osetra was our favorite. The portions were generous, the seafood done to perfection and the wine list extensive. We wished we could take it back to our cities.

The food was very good. My date and I split the chilled seafood plate ($55). I had the pear salad (about $15) and he had the burrata salad. All were really good. The kitchen fell down a bit bringing the entrees. (Stuffed sole). Date thought it a bit bland. I didn't try it so can't confirm. I would go there... More

A downtown hot spot, I was surprised at how empty it was on a Thursday evening during restaurant week. I ordered the 4 course prix fix deal and started out with half dozen oysters. The waiter just dropped them off and left : ( but I called him back and asked what kind they were and what the dips were.... More

My wife and I visited yesterday just as the restaurant was opening for the evening. The atmosphere was welcoming and immediately comfortable, partially due to the beautiful design of the venue, more so due to the energy and genuine attitude of the staff. The manager at the time, Adrienne, made us feel at home as if we were old friends.... More

Every time I come to this lovely restaurant, I meet the most amazing people and have the best time! I go for a glass of wine and oysters, and find myself still there three hours later because I just don't want to leave. The service is excellent and every member of the staff makes me feel like I'm the most... More
