We had an excellent experience at Ostra. Our waitress was engaging, fun, and took very good care of us. We ordered the tuna tacos and gumbo for starters. They were both delicious, but the true stars were the entrees. My husband had the ahi tuna and I tried the striped bass. Both were AMAZING! The ahi tuna was described as... More

Loved the scallops--to die for! My compliments to the chef on Dec. 1, 2016! Mike was my waiter and he truly knew the menu. I had had a long hard day at work and this restaurant was the perfect recluse for a weary traveler. Thank you so much!

While the location is beautiful and the staff were friendly, the food wasn't worth it. It was incredibly over-priced, the portions were small and the flavors clashed with each other. Overall, I wouldn't eat there again.

stopped for a martini and a small desert mid afternoon. The drinks were great and we had one of the best bread pudding ever. We highly recommend it.

We just had our second great dinner at Ostra on the River Walk. People watching, ambience, great service and wonderful seafood. So far, the crab cake and wedge salad starters were great and the scallops (divine), ahi tuna and blackened redfish wonderful. Nice New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc too. Pricey but worth a splurge.

We asked to be seated inside as the weather had turned chilly. We had the restaurant almost to ourselves. Our server, Jesse F., was superb. He was knowledgeable and informative about the menu, there when you needed him, and allowed us to enjoy our conversation otherwise. We liked the formal touch of asking our last name and then referring to... More

We made our reservations on Open Table and verified with the restaurant staff for a terrace seating at 7:30. Upon arriving we were told that there would be a wait, which is understandable in the restaurant business. We sat at the bar for a while, then my husband spoke to a manager and we were seated within minutes. It was... More
