Wedding dinner reception was fabulous!!

Our daughter was married in San Diego on Valentine's Day and we were booked into a private room at Osetra by the restaurant's event planner. It could not have been a more perfect venue for our wedding party. On a very busy Valentine's evening, everything was perfect! We were a small group and... read more

I searched the internet for the best restaurant in San Diego for caviar and Ostera kept coming up so I decided that is where I should take my wife for Valentines dinner to satisfy her craving for caviar. We started the meal with some oysters and they just blew me away. Then we had the caviar platter and the presentation... More

Dropped in for a drink after a day of sightseeing and enjoyed a terrific dozen oysters, well presented, very fresh. Server was very knowledgeable about the oysters, and the many drinks on offer. Our only regret is that we didn't make it back before we had to leave the area.

We picked this place because it looked good from outside when we walked the Gaslamp quarter of San Diego the night before - and we did not regret our choice. Sitting outside in February was amazing (for us) in the first place. The server was very attentive. My wife nejoyed her oysters as starter and her AHhi Tuna seared to... More

Osetra restaurant was so very welcoming. They treated us like they not only wanted our business, but also wanted to treat us to a nice time. The atmosphere was great. Everything was clean, and polished, and the food was spectacular. The service was very professional, warm and sincere. I highly recommend Osetra without hesitation.

Loved the crab cakes and lobster ravioli. So good! Also, wine angels is a must see. Cocktails were strong and delicious. Can't wait to go back to try more items.

We were in San diego on a conference and had a group of 20 going out for dinner. We were recommended to go to Osetra by a hotel concierge. What an excellent choice! We were seated upstairs at a long table along the window, with the view of the Gaslamp. All the food came out looking and tasting amazing! I... More

I ate there with three colleagues on a work trip. I was really excited to go because we had been eating terrible convention center food. I ordered scallops and was definitely underwhelmed and disappointed. My colleagues likes their meals, though.

The best thing about this place was the shashimi tuna. It was delicious. I wish we had left after this. We ordered the sea bass and against my better judgement ordered a new your strip. This violates my golden rule to wit in a sea food restaurant order seafood. Alas the steak was dreadful but the sea bass was just... More
