    First time eating at Osso and we will definitely be back. Our server, Tom, was knowledge, helpful, and a pleasure to chat with. Every person we interacted with from host, server, busser etc. was pleasant. We ordered the cheesy bread appetizer, we were warned it was filling, and that’s the truth. You receive half a fresh loaf of bread on a skillet with delicious melted cheese, almost like a queso sauce. It was really good. For our entrees we ordered the 32oz ribeye steak, and 2 lobster tails. Both were well cooked and delicious. For sides we ordered au gratin potatoes which came served in a small skillet pot. The top had a delicious cheesy crunch, similar to a Mac an cheese. And I’d venture to say the brussel sprouts are the best I’ve ever had. They also have a pretty extensive wine list, lots of options to choose from, which I love! The atmosphere is pleasant, muted lights, but not so dark you can barely see the person across the table. I would say the prices are reasonable for the food and restaurant experience. We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 entrees (steak and lobster), 2 sides, and a bottle of wine. Our total was about $350.

    ($250 for two) We had about 3 minutes with our appetizer before they brought our steaks. It seemed there was a large party, as a large cart of steaks were wheeled past us. I understand that larger parties bring in more profit but the chefs were definitely trying to get us out of the way. I’ve worked in fine dining and this proves there was either a lack of communication or just a lack of care for a party of 2. You don’t cook or bring the main course when we’ve only had a couple bites of an appetizer. Ordered the filet with bone in, which I would not recommend over the basic filet. Asked for medium rare and got very rare. My grandfather ordered the regular filet, medium rare, which was cooked almost perfectly. The mac and cheese was expensive but tasty, the mashed potatoes were much less impressive. The waiter was nice and friendly. Noise level was below average for San Fran. Definitely better places to dine. But a decent option if you’re staying at the Fairmont, Huntington, Hopkins etc. Would only come back due to the nice service and if I was too lazy to go anywhere else.

    first out I'll start with appetizers we had shrimp cocktail shrimp were big and juicy and the cocktail sauce is outstanding! next was the skillet bread this is the main reason we go there LOL ,so freakn good! I had the porterhouse which was good but in recent visits I've had the cowboy ribeye and it is by far much better to me and cheaper. for dessert we shared the lemon tart , and it was extremely delicious .we drive an hour and a half to two hours to dine here.this is the fourth time we've been there and yes we will travel that far just to eat there! our server was Jake and he was awesome I recommend you ask for him. I highly recommend Osso steakhouse , oh yeah I forgot the greeter we always enjoy talking with her but I forgot her name she's super friendly and always has our table ready for us

    The steak and lobster I. The mash was over cooked, the sea bass was very thin similar to a thin and cheap tilapia. The food was warm to cold when served.

    Osso is always outstanding. The atmosphere, the food, the service, it’s all amazing. The hostess, Paola, is always friendly and charming. The boneless petite filet is my favorite, despite the name “Osso” meaning “bone” in Italian. The sauce is simply to die for. I frequently hop the California street car and ride up to Osso, across the street from Grace Cathedral, after a long week of work in the FiDi.

    I had a wonderful meal with my husband and another couple. The ambience was very cool steakhouse vibe.The hostess and waiter were very professional and top notch. We started with crabcakes , beet salad and Caesar salad which were delicious and followed by Bone-in New York strip, and the pork chop. Both were perfectly prepared, tender and flavorful. I highly recommend the brussels sprouts side which was light and crispy with a lot of flavor. For dessert, we loved the carrot cake and enjoyed some port. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or a fun evening out. We will definitely be going back.

    The food was incredible. My steak was perfectly cooked (medium, just a little pink) and the scallop potatoes were amazing. My only complaint was the speed of service, but given that there was a large party of 10 dining also, they appeared to be understaffed. Also, they make a huge point on the reservation page about “business casual” dress code being enforced, but I saw tennis shoes, jeans, and even workout clothes being worn, so caveat emptor.

    This is definitely the place to go for the highest quality steaks. Their bone-in New York @$72 ala carte was outstanding as well as pricey. The bargain on the menu is the single lobster tail for $27. Service and atmosphere are also excellent.

    Date night for my husband and i - We ordered the lobster fondue as a starter and about halfway through, my husband bit down on something very hard and had to violently spit it out. Turns out to be a screw! See picture included. Outside of a “sorry” the waiter nor the bar manager came back to make sure my husband was okay, which he did have immediate pain in his tooth and jaw. We finished up, the bill came and surprisingly without an offer to comp any of the meal outside of the fondue. With a bit of a discussion about how this didn’t feel like an appropriate response to a potentially serious situation, bar manager said we could not have the restaurant managers contact information and if we thought my husband had been injured we would need to talk to their attorney. He then came back and comped our two glasses of wine and the side of potatoes. It wasn’t about the money and they didn’t make any effort to make sure our experience was rectified. We paid the remaining 180.00 and left.

    I checked in with our group and we were seated right away, which was great. Everything took longer than expected. Items that were supposed to be hot were not. We were not offered bread. The food came on a stainless steel tray, which was strange. About 15 minutes into sitting there, the restaurant called and asked if we were on our way. Also strange. The bathroom was dirty and in an inconvenient location ( downstairs). The food was ok, not great. Other positives: great location and decor.

    The steak was delicious and so were the sides and cocktails. What really stood out was the wonderful hostess and waitstaff. Service was too notch. Our waitstaff was friendly accommodating and professional. We really felt comfortable in a way I wasn’t expecting given the fine dining feel to the restaurant when we walked in. From first check in through goodbyes our experience was great. We will definitely come back in the future.

    While the venue and atmosphere were cool (think 1930s vibe), I do not recommend this restaurant. The food was not good (very poor steak cuts, cold sides) and it is on the pricey side given the poor food quality, lack of service, and no attention to details (ex: requested salt and pepper and what was brought to the table was empty). Also the bathrooms were poor quality (the stall door did not even close).

    My husband and I made a reservation at Osso for our first wedding anniversary. Overall, we loved the experience and our meal. Our server was okay, not the friendliest or most pleasant per say, and we would have ordered more drinks if she had checked in on us more. The ambiance is nice, although you can see right into the kitchen from the dining room, which is interesting. The food was amazing, and we had an absolutely awesome and memorable dinner, but we wouldn't go back. This was a $300 meal that left us not quite underwhelmed, definitely satisfied, but certainly not wowed. For the price and the special occasion, we could have stood to be a bit more wowed, mostly by the restaurant itself and the service. Food was top definitely notch, but as far as high-end steakhouses go, we'd go somewhere else next time.
