The Marriott Pulse recommended this place, and we weren't disappointed. I had the caprese salad which was excellent and the chef special seafood linguine. It was very tasty - everything fresh and flavorful. Shad was our main waiter, and he and the rest of the crew provided great service. We'd come again when we visit San Diego next time.

We ordered the chef specials for the night, you know, the ones that are not on the menu. They were delicious but weren't 'to die for'. We expected to $$$$ but the bill just didn't match the quality of the food. Service was good but had better elsewhere.

We had a reservation on a Saturday for 5:30pm. We were seated on arrival and the server greeted us promptly. The service was very very good. The server told us about the chefs special dishes and the price. We ordered drinks and they arrived quickly. Our selection was lamb, lobster and steaks. All the food arrived perfectly prepared and tasted... More

I ate here with a group of colleagues. The atmosphere is upscale romantic. The tables are spaced nicely so that you're able to enjoy the company of those around you. The staff is very professional and attentive. The menu prominently features seafood but there are options for non-seafood eaters. Much of the seafood is paired with pasta that is made... More

Excellent and personal service and totally delicious high class foods. I have several food sensitivities and they made something special just for me (Chilean seabass), and it was sooo good!! Usually I feel a bit deprived with my allergies, but not this time! The fish was easily one of the best I've ever had! Get it! My spouse's lobster ravioli... More

To be fair, we had booked this restaurant months in advance to experience the San Diego restaurant week. We were seated at an outdoor table when we arrived but it was very noisy so asked if we could move indoors. We were placed at a high top table in the bar area and asked if we could move to the...

What an absolutely fantastic restaurant all around. From the impeccable and beautifully presented dishes to the handcrafted cocktails (and the amazing bartender who can whip something perfect up for you based on as little as one guideline), the warm decor and unique wine tower with "wine angels" who scale it to retrieve bottles of wine for you, Osetra is phenomenal....

To be honest we went here because of the half price appetizers and drinks. The food was very flavorful and a great variety. The ambience was really neat, would like to be there later in the evening as I am sure it would be very lively. Looks like a great place for large groups. Would definitely good back.
