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

We live downtown and have eaten at a lot of restaurants. We chose Osetra to take out of town friends to for New Year's Eve. The restaurant was packed, so the service was very slow. The music was loud, so hard to talk. The food presentation was nothing special. I ordered the surf and turf and it was terribly average... More

The tables were so closo to each other that the staff had to squeeze between the tables and even move the chairs where we and other customers were sitting.... More

The overall impression was confusion. The waiter had to take our orders twice, as he completely forgot what we ordered, and that accounts for both food and beverages. Then he tried to serve us something we didn't order. When we asked for the bill, we got a new serving of bread and butter? We just had one dish each, a... More
