Excellent overall. Noise bounces off the walls and my date is hard of hearing, which made communication difficult. Otherwise top notch!

The food was awesome! I was originally concerned with the limited main meal menu (6 Items) however there were great choices and the food was great

So, so good. Really everything was outstanding. Lots of meat, but the vegetarian pasta was also out of this world. Service was genuine and un-hovery. Prices are good for fine dining, which it is. Don't overdo on the awesome bread because there's so much more good to some. Save some bread for the great sauces. The steak dish was a standout. Owner super available and friendly - very nicely comped us a dessert with a candle for my daughter's 19th birthday, and came over to say hi. Do not miss this Middletown gem.

Young, hip, exciting noisy restaurant. The menu was extremely limited. The food was satisfactory, but not great. There were lots of servers, but it was hard to get their attention.

This is my favorite resturant in CT. They have nice wines, excellent cocktails, and a good whiskey selection. The flavors are multilayered and delicious especially on vegetarian appetizers.

If you can deal with a noisy environment this restaurant is a must. All small plates were just fantastic, and the pan seared scallops were among the best I’ve ever had. Will go back there again soon!

Whenever my husband and I get a date night, we head to Osa. From the very start we knew it was special - and with an ever-changing seasonal menu, it never feels like a repeat. Best bread in the world! Super nice staff. Food is beyond.

The rustic atmosphere was cozy and warm. The food was fresh and delicious. Not a lot of choices though. I had the chicken saltimbocca and it was great. Light and crispy skin and moist inside. Wine was very good. I would recommend it if you’re open to farm to table dining.

There were four of us, and altogether we ordered 8-10 different menu items. Every one of them was spectacularly delicious and well served. The server was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful, giving us excellent advice when we asked for it. Ambiance warm and decor straightforward but very clean and attractive. We hadn’t expected this new place to be so far along in quality and performance, but it’s really great.

Group of 5 went for a birthday dinner. The menu was very limited and it was difficult to find something appealing. Nevertheless the food we ultimately decided to order was very good. The summer spaghetti and the scallops were awesome. However, the meals were significantly more expensive than should be for the amount of food that was served. We were still hungry when we left. The nice thing is you can order tapas/family style, which I enjoy quite a bit. It took very long to receive our drinks, so if you are thirsty - order immediately. The dining room is small, but not overcrowded. They had outdoor seating which is essentially in an alley way between the next door building. I do not think I need to go back.

$29 for an open face cheese steak sandwich that didn't even come with a side?! I never felt so ripped off at a restaurant before.

Quiet, mildly eclectic, good value evening dining before the theater. We sat outside in the alley and it was quiet, a cooling breeze and away from the a/c of indoors. Great food and value...had the beer and burger special.

Two meals were ordered. One was perfect, but the other had not been executed with a requested substitution of a vegetable in place of fried potatoes. Overall, the experience was positive. This was my second visit. The first time was really five star.

I've eaten here many times, and this past meal was average and forgettable. The potato/mayo dish used fried potatos instead of the fingerlings, the sunchokes were too sweet, and the "famous" octopus pasta could have used a good deal more flavor. And the menu seems to have shrunk considerably- there could not have been more than 12 dishes. Truly, the highlight of the meal was the bread and the blue cheese olives in my martini.

Osa used to be a really awesome place with lots of small plates and appetizers, all of which were unique, seasonal and delicious. I used to say to people I would take there, "just order anything, it's all good", and now I don't think I'd take anyone there again unless it was to have a drink, maybe. The service and the drinks were very good but I was otherwise extremely disappointed.

I hope this review is of some use to someone because Osa used to be my favorite restaurant, and I think it's capable of a lot more than it delivered the other night.

$380 (after tip) for 4 people? Not worth it. Scallop dish had only 3 scallops. Beer list was uneventful. Wines were pricey. The place was largely empty at 6:45pm on a Saturday night?

First time to OSA and it was terrific. We had the octopus and asparagus appetizers and both were uniquely prepared and excellent served in a sharable size. My scallop entre was perfectly cooked on a fun plate of different flavors and sauces. Our midnight manhattans were a favorite prompting several reorders. Our server Sarah was very personable and seemed to care that we had an enjoyable experience. She was very knowledgeable about the menu items. It always adds to our experience if the staff appears happy and excited about their job. Sarah gave us that vibe.
