Served by the loveliest waitress, who could not have done anymore to help us. The food was very tasty and well presented. Thanks for a lovely evening. We had a superb date night. No complaints from me!!

“Awful”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

I dot normally write reviews but I think I need to so people can avoid this place. The service from the woman who called herself the manager was awful. She was rude and obnoxious. We didn't even stay to try the food. I have never been treated so badly.

“AVOID!!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

My best friends had a small intimate wedding yesterday and had booked about a month ago for all 8 of us to have a meal at the Osborne View after the ceremony. They were told upon booking that we could be seated in a slightly separate area and that they could decorate the table before we all came down. The day before wedding they went in to check what time would be ok to pop in and decorate the table - just as well they did! They were greeted with a particularly rude and unhelpful manager who said you can come and do it at 2.30pm (we were all due to arrive at 3pm) and even though they explained they would be at their actual ceremony at that time the only response they received was "well you don't expect me to hold a table for you over lunchtime do you? You aren't going to be getting any special treatment!" So they were then informed that actually they wouldn't be able to be seated in the area originally promised to them as they had since taken a booking for a wake for 40 people as they had paid for a buffet so my friends would only be able to have a table in the main section of the restaurant. My friends now started to get understandably teary to which they were faced with a stony cold glare. They tried explaining that this was their wedding and that they were assured upon booking that decorating their table in the morning would not be a problem and that they didn't expect any kind of special treatment but that they had not envisioned being treated like this and so now were unsure what to do to which they were told to have a think about it but that she wouldn't be working later so they'd have to speak to another member of staff and off she walked.
A god send as it happened as they asked around friends for recommendations and were put in touch with The Anglesey Hotel in Alverstoke who couldn't have done more for them and made their day truly magical in a stunningly beautiful setting and will certainly being getting all of our return custom.
Never again will any of us be going near the Osborne View, disgusted is a complete understatement!!

“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

As a last minute choice I took my family for lunch at Osbourne View today. We were offered a table in the window with an excellent view of the Solent. Our orders were taken without delay from a varied and interesting menu.When served our meals were good, hot and very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed an excellent experience and one we shall repeat at this venue. Not only the food but the service was also extremely good. Thank you Osbourne View.
