I am concerned because it was empty due to the COVID. I hope this business is being supported. The food and service is excellent.

Osa never disappoints! Phenomenal and interesting food - the kind of place where you can't decide what to get bc you want it all. Wonderful, flavorful, fresh, fantastic. Small or large plates plus amazing cocktails, friendly service and a very cool vibe. We try to go every time we are in Middletown and are always glad we did.

The wait staff was amazing! I was expecting the food to be spectacular and it wasn't. It wasn't bad either. The food is terribly expensive for the amount given. I had to eat again to be full when I arrived home. It wasn't a different experience and that's what I thought it would be. The inside is sheik and warm. I'd recommend offering more food for the price because after spending $80.00, I should have been satisfied.

Food was amazing. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Portions were perfect - food is creative yet not unapproachable. Ambiance is perfect. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Great wine list and recommendation by our server. Definitely the perfect place for a date night or night out with friends. Don't miss out!

Fantastic addition to Middletown restaurant choices, far superior to any other restaurant I have dined at in the area, and are still open.
Really fresh food, very modern food thought. Good size portions. Friendly service. Great cocktails and wine list. I thought food and drink prices were very reasonable. I had a very good Italian Red Podere by Umani Ronchi for only $35! Only suggestion is to add stand alone vegetarian/vegan entrees listed in the menu, to avoid needing to request substitutions or special requests. Also you might want to offer low carb dishes to help us too. We all loved this hip place! We Will Be Back!

Beautiful restaurant, you can feel comfortable going casual or dressing up. Great for a family meal or a romantic evening out. The staff are all genuinely friendly & knowledgeable about the menu (which changes based on fresh ingredients - there are special creations daily!). The food is the best our family has ever had, with delicious gluten-free & vegan options available. The beer selection is fantastic, as well as many different cocktails (which also change often, as they are creative & inspired). They have a burger & brew night every Wednesday- for $15 you get an amazing burger & a beer - what is better than that? Give them a shot, you will not be disappointed!

We have been to Osa several times and well, its starting to be boring. This Wednesday, there was nothing special about the food. The menu is no longer interesting, tapas is gone for all practical purposes, and the little things like the potatoes with the burgers were so blah. Was it bad, no, was it what we loved, no.

Very cool vibe and delicious food. I ordered the white pasta but tasted the steak and scallops- all were wonderful. The bread and the wine list were also outstanding. Best place I have eaten in Middletown.
In error I gave a 1 but it is a 5!

I don’t normally write reviews but I will make an exception. We had dinner there this past Saturday after getting engaged. I had let the restaurant know about this and they went above and beyond to make this special day better than we could have hoped. The food which is always great was amazing and took into consideration our various allergies. The service and ambience were incredible (we sat at a corner table by the window). There are many great restaurants but only a few that go above and beyond for their customers. Can’t say how much I appreciate these people.

Osa’s farm to table selections were excellent. The burger was very good as was the steak. Also, try the octopus appetizer and seafood dip if it’s on the menu. All was very good. I look forward to going back next time!

Service was great, the whole team was attentive and no empty plates sat for long. Food was very good, well prepared and seasoned, every dish! The only complaint I have is the server had BO. If you're working in a restaurant serving food this good you should used deodorant.

Great locally sourced food well prepared. Good mix of fancier food for more adventurous eaters in our party, and basic burger for our comfort food fan. Good value for quality of food. Wine list was reasonable but also had some less common options. "Counter" seating was really a communal table, with plenty of room.

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.

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.
