We stayed in San Diego gaslamp distrikt for some days and visited Osetra the first day. All of us ate fish as was delicious and also the wine. We were so satisfied so we revisited Osetra our last evening, and ate lobster - fantastic - and HUGE!! The service was also good so we can absolutely recommend this restaurant!

Visited Osetra for my birthday. It did not disappoint. The salmon and risotto was excellent, as was the organic greens salad. Good selection of menu items. Decent wine list. Everything overpriced but that's expected in the Gaslamp area. Service attentive and unobtrusive. Nice atmosphere. Really nice meal! Park at Horton Plaza for 3 hours free with validation from mall.

We were very comfortable at dinner. The menu had lots to choose from and the appetizer was free since our hotel called to make the reservation. The food tasted good and was worth the slightly higher price for the Gaslamp area. Service was a little spotty, but polite.

The Gaslamp District is inherently over-priced. However, if you are paying those kind of prices you expect a very good meal. This was not it. I also need to point out there were so many bugs flying around it made it near impossible to stop swatting long enough to eat. In an upscale restaurant this just shouldn't be happening. I... More

It is located right in the Gas Lamp district; a very colorful area with more unique restaurants than you can count. Still this one stands out. You can dine inside or outside on the sidewalk. If you choose inside you will experience a trendy interior complete with a 2 story wine cooler. When you order wine, a server is lifted... More

Great food and great live music! The parking was difficult and expensive, but I think that is just the way it is in the Gaslamp District. We had great drinks and dinners. The fish was done perfectly and the waiter was very attentive. Very trendy place and a very busy area. Fun for a night out!

My partner and I were very happy with the food here - yes, it is a little overprices, but the lobster gnocci was amazing! I was, however, a little disappointed with my prawns as I thought they were overcooked but my husband's fish stew was fabulous.
