Scrumptious and great ambience

Here's a great place to eat. Has cool hip indoor setting or you can eat outside by the beautiful fountain. Fantastic fresh salads and the mahi mahi was to die for.

The 5 Onion soup was truly good however the arugula salad was plain disappointing. There was barely any dressing, the prosciutto was nonexistent and I was told there was feta but that was just as hard to find as the prosciutto. Dessert also lack lustre.... Tasteless key lime pie. Friends ordered shrimp and grits...grits had zero flavour. They did however... More

This restaurant has a really cute and cozy atmosphere so it's a shame that the menu and wine list are subpar. We were disappointed by everything but the bread, which we could have picked up at fresh market. Hanger steak was decent but tiny, presentation and side dishes were what you might see at a hospital cafeteria. The stuffed pork... More

This is one of the best restaurants in downtown Vero Beach, which is to say people over the bridge on Orchid Island will drive to eat here. That is saying something considering the restaurants they can and will choose from in their own neighborhood. Outdoor seating is nice and it's not noisy like a lot of overpriced places to eat...

We arrived late in the evening, but were graciously accommodated. We went for the wine tasting menu - 3 courses with wine pairings. Loved it.

A beautiful downtown quiet spot that serves only today-fresh, locally grown menu. Since it is my wife's favorite place, I have eaten there 9 times. In all of those times, I have never ordered off the menu--the specials are special. Always two soups--an artisan and a hearty (roasted squash/fish chowder) the salads are creative (fried green tomato on arugula) and... More

Can you open one near us? This bistro was the best. They have gluten free bread and pasta (most of the time; call to check). They understand lactose-free and food intolerances. So appreciated. My husband and I both had the specials: snapper on pasta and a coconut encrusted fish over a mango arugula salad. Delicious, healthy, and fresh. Our server... More

During this particular visit, we were celebrating a colleague's graduation. The food and service were both excellent and the menu was varied for our food preferences. The chef uses fresh local food when preparing wonderful bistro type dishes. My adult children and I have been to Osceola any number of times. Weather permitting, we request outside dining. The outside dining... More

Have been a customer of Osceola Bistro since its inception years ago. Last night we went for dinner and their evening special was soft shell crabs. We originally lived in the Northeast and soft shells were featured often. Living in Florida for the past 10 years and they are hard to find. We ordered them for dinner and they looked... More

Osceola Bistro has some of the freshest, most creative meals in town. Always a pleasure eating here! The oysters, burger, wings, shrimp and grits, and chicken are all amazing! It's hard to pick a favorite dish.
