“Good and Reliable”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We went here after a concert at Grace Cathedral, mostly because of the location. We were very pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious (try the Italian potstickers) and the crab cakes. Our server was friendly, knowledgable and attentive. The wine was lovely. Osso has a nice, warm, inviting ambience -- perfect for a steakhouse. We certainly intend to return so we can try the steaks.

“A+ all the way!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We had a party of 7 on Monday March 10, 2014. Everything about the restaurant was top notch. Service was excellent. Showed up often enough but not pushy. Glasses always full, never wondered where our server had gone.
The food!!!! - crab cakes appetizer is great. But for dinner - bone in filet medium. That is what to order. it was amazing! For dessert, the chocolate mousse was very good.

About the only thing to complain about, and this is not the restaurants fault I don't think, is that you have to take an elevator down one floor to go to the rest rooms. Odd.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for a business dinner in San Francisco.

“Monday night steak. ”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Time for another great steak and this time the place was Osso. It was on a Monday night so there was not really a lot of people. But the table we got was ok.
We had cocktails before dinner. Had the crap cocktail. Must admit that was really a disappointment, lettuce and some crap.

The steak was however much much better. Prepared to perfection.
Wine also good.

So all in all a nice place with good food.

“New years eve bad experience”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Overall I rate the experience terrible because of the no offers for kids menu, bad advertise wine label in there wine menu and when we gonna paid my check for $900.00 they charge $1,200.00. First we make an appointment for 9 people, including our kids(ages 5,8 and 9 y/old). When we arrive at the restaurant we wait aprox. 30 minutes until our table was ready. Then when seated It was announce that no kids menu was available. Then I ask for a Chateau Lagrange as in their wine menu and instead I was provided by a Les Fies de Lagrange, their second label wine. The food was on par with other steakhouses like Ruth Chris, Morton and Capitol Grill but cooked in an different way. Then when I get my check the total was more or less $900.00 and when we provided our credit card(we split the check with my brother in law) they billed our card for $600.00 something. We ask for a refund but they told that they're going to correct with the bank the next day. In conclusion we left the restaurant with a negative impression overall.

“Steak to perfection”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Great evening all round! The place was spacious, classy and refined. It's location is very convenient for The Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill. The wine list was extensive - we settled on a Sonoma Zinfandel, which was excellent. The choice of steaks was well explained by the waiter, as was Osso's own style of cooking them. A crispy crust with a medium rare interior suited us fine. The regular Porterhouse steak was adequately man-sized and the petite Filet ideal for my wife's appetite. The side dishes of creamed spinach and sweet potato were great accompaniment. The waiter was maybe a little over attentive, but we were able to control the pace of our dinner and had a thoroughly enjoyable time together.
