Osman's has been open in Mobile since about 2000 and they have consistently delivered top notch food and service since they opened. Their location is off the beaten path for most restaurants in the area, but it is very conveniently located, close to the heart of town. The grouper meunière has always been my favorite dish. I know the steak... More

We checked reviews and just had to try this European restaurant! It is not easy to find and looks rough from the parking lot, but once in you are welcomed into a beautiful restaurant. The staff are welcoming and they sell quality wine by the bottle. Most people here are regulars and everyone seems polite and nicely dressed. The food... More

Osman's is a hole-in-the wall kind of place, on a back road 2-3 miles outside of the historic district of Mobile. It is worth a visit if you are tired of oysters, boiled shrimp, hush puppies, grits and all the other local fare. Osman's creative chef serves European-style cuisine, with a slight accent on the German. The main courses we... More

This restaurant is amazing with wonderful atmosphere and service. The food is some of my favorite in mobile. I had the escargot then red fish meunière on my last visit, made with veal stock not butter. It's a cozy neighborhood jewel!

Had the Jaeger Schnitzel which was larger than the plate it came on (enough for 3 people) was good but not 26 dollars good. Was served with angel hair pasta and veggies that had been put on the grill, a weird combo and not very german. Husband ordered the Baked Tortellini which came in a small oven proof dish had... More

Have been going to this little resturant for years, but the past few times have been very disappointing. The friendly atmosphere is not so friendly because the maitre d' was not so charming and gracious. It is very obvious - I must warn! It is rather insulting. In fact, so as not to be as rude as she was to... More

I could never say enough about this place. The atmosphere is very cozy with interesting decor. Lighting is low, but tables are lit just right. When we were there, it was truly a family operation with Mr. Osman and Mrs. Osman preparing food, and their daughter waiting the tables. There are only 6 to 8 tables. Service was prompt. We... More

My husband and I dined here with a big group of friends. It felt like being at a friend's house - a friend that can cook very well! We both had the fresh catch of the day, Red Fish. I had mine grilled and he had his in a Chardonnay sauce. Both were exquisite. Some of our friends ordered the... More

My wife and I had Valentine's Day dinner here this year. It is also the restaurant where we ate the night that we got engaged 7 years ago. The food is always consistently fresh and good. I highly recommend it. One of Mobile's best!
