The Oysters La Cruz are fresh out of the Bay, sporting machego cheese, a little spinach, and una poca de salsa piquante. Muy Rico. The Caesar salad comes laden with a not exactly authentic goopy dressing. The service is just plain inadequate, prices higher than the quality (except for the oysters).

A very busy place following the outdoor market. Fish tacos were great, atmosphere sucked. Our expectations were not met.

Christmas dinner 2014: Tuna was amazing--seared to perfect, melt in your mouth. Service was timely and professional. Enjoyed dancing to live music.

Ended up ducking in during the rain storm on Superbowl Sunday. Ended up spending 3-4 hours. The staff made the best of a wet situation. Beer and drinks are cheap and they use fresh ingredients-press limes and oranges to make juice. We only had apps but they were tasty and fairly priced. We do intent to return for oysters(it is...

They aim to please here, dubbing themselves as the restraint without a menu. Although, they do have one but will do their best to get and prepare for you anything you want. Consequently the wait can be a while as they go to the markets in search for the ingredients for your request. Food is good with lovely presentation. Dogs... More

We were looking for Eva's Brickhouse in La Cruz and when we finally found it in the dark it was, hard to believe, closed, and only open by appointment or reservation. Unbelievable!! Luckily, right next door we found Oso's. We were greeted by the owner, and made to feel like long lost friends. Our meal was very good, my wife... More

We have eaten at Osos an number of times and found the food and service to be top notch. The waiters are excellent, friendly and make you feel very much like you are at home. The view of the marina is another special feature of this restaurant. Live music on Wednesdays and Thursdays further added to this wonderful experience. Highly... More

We went to Oso's for a snack and a beer before heading off to the fish market to buy dinner. We ordered the Oysters La Cruz and they were amazing. I don't normally eat oysters, but these had a smokey chipotle sauce on the bottom, the oyster, spinach, and melted cheese on top. There was some funky jazz playing in... More
