This was our first time dining and we are looking forward to coming back. All of the dishes were delicious! Their gnocchi was some of the best I ever had. They change the menu daily, so we will see what they serve next!

Service is as can be anticipated for a quality restaurant. Food is much better than comparable restaurants. Seating is very tight and noise is high. High energy dining, not an elegant and relaxing place for a special occasion.

There’s rustic and then there’s “I could have made this at home.” This restaurant is good, but no more than that and has veered over into being all scene and unexceptional food.

Too loud an environment for me. They squeeze far too many people in there, then they also pipe music overtop. Prefer not to have to yell across the table. Bad for taking a date and having meaningful conversation without being misheard. Did not feel I got value for food with the size of the bill. However staff and service are great. As soon as I got home was still hungry and had to snack, and I am not obese if that's what you're thinking. Would not return.

Had a delicious meal here. They unfortunately dropped the ball on our service and we waited well over an hour for our entree. Instead of apologizing for the mix up, they muttled through some other explanation. They did comp an item and any desserts we wanted. This stuff happens for certain but, just admit the mistake is all

We went for a birthday and the restaurant greeted us with a card and provided an extra small birthday dessert. The service was excellent and friendly. We chose the "family style" tasting menu and all 5 courses were superb. We were more than satisfied.

A total 180 degree turn from our past excellent experiences. One of the worst steaks I’ve had at a restaurant ever. Poor attempt by staff to try to cover up that they served us a terrible steak. Also expensive for what it was

We really enjoyed the food that we had. It was an adventure, as we let the chef choose our meal, and didn't know what we were going to have. Everything was delicious! The service that we received was very good.
The young lady was very helpful.

Decided to try the restaurant before bringing the whole crew down for xmas dinner. Restaurant is pretty vibrant scene for a mid week dinner. Had a few servers come by the table. Some were exception and some were meh. Food was overall quite good except that all the dishes were way too salty. The Carne cruda is good except the second order of accompanying bread was over grilled. Didn't think that it would pass QC as the bread was black and didn't think it should have made it to the table. The bone in veal chop is tender but again too salty. The desserts were good but nothing to write home about. If you've never tried this restaurant its worth a try but unfortunately didn't live up to the hype for us. Decided to move the company christmas party elsewhere. May try again in the future.

Fantastic food. We opted for the 5 course menu where the chefs prepare your meal based on your preferences. Food is served family style. Price was fair for the portion sizes. Must try the anchovie and garlic bath dip with the fresh vegetables.

For the price, the service was sub-par and inconsistent (had to ask for water refills three times and plates were being presented and taken away at random intervals). Some plates/cups were chipped and/or dated.

If they have their Espresso ice cream- Indulge!

We’ve been here a few times are we’re never disappointed. Great ambience. Superior service and always amazing food. The last couple of times we’ve chosen the option where the chef selects the courses for you. (Four plus dessert). I really recommend it, no need to think too much, just tell your server if there’s anything you don’t like or really want to try!

It was my first time at Osteria last night on a Thursday night and it was really busy.
Even at 8:15pm the only available seating option was at the counter.

The food was excellent. The burrata dish is a must try.
Despite the food tasting very delicious, the pace was rather slow but Osteria's staff reassured us periodically to relief our eager hunger.

I would definitely be coming back even though the food came out a bit slow this time around but it's worth the wait!
