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.

One of the best brunch experiences I've ever had. The outdoor seating is cool and far enough away from the sounds of main street, a clever set up. Cocktails were top notch, service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. The chicken hash was my favorite food, and the suntory smash my favorite drink.

We were a party of 3.

We made a reservation for 6:30 on a Saturday night.

What I noticed immediately on the menu was that bread and butter cost $4. We ordered a few appetizers to share; burrata and olives. Since our bread and butter were almost gone, and we needed something to put the burrata on, we ordered more bread. It was provided without butter for $3. We asked for more butter. I will state that the burrata and bread were delicious (I did not have any olives.) $7 for bread though. Yikes. My friend ordered a salad as her salad course and it was a generous (normal) size. Since I had ordered a "warm salad/greens" appetizer as my entree, I felt I had made the right decision for a light entree. I ordered the Dan Dan Greens. The description of the dish mentioned greens but the waitress was unable to tell me what the greens were. It was prepared with an Asian flare (peanut butter, soy, pork, etc.) It was actually enough for my entree; it was approximately 1 scant cup of food. One in my party ordered spaghetti and meatballs -- she didn't rave about it. Another ordered a burger. She didn't rave about it. Our drinks were okay--I foolishly ordered a second one. It was a pretty pink color and I was in the mood. I won't be back any time soon. I'm glad I went to check it out. I like that people are willing to take on Middletown for destination dining.

Super restaurant, excellent food -- the flank steak melted in mouth -- including bread and wine and
very nice service. The noise, however, was deafening and something the restaurateurs ought to address.
