Really lovely and thoughtfully constructed menu, great wine selection and well designed space make Oster a great night out to celebrate, and now with their byo and steak nights- affordable for me to return more often!
One of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne. Always fabulous.
We had the chef's tasting menu, the food was so fresh and delicious, great service, we will return.
Great food and great and friendly service! Would love to go again.
Oster is incredible! The food is so fresh, so flavoursome and so perfectly portioned! The waitstaff are Michelin Star restaurant trained and the two who served us had both lived in Italy as has Head Chef Nick. House made (delicious) cocktails were perfect, we enjoyed a martini and a negroni. There is also a very extensive wine list with lots of local wines to choose from as well as some international.
The interior is so beautiful with natural tones and textures making you feel very comfrortble and classy!
This is Italian fine dining, great for a special occasion! We enjoyed fresh Sydney oysters and incredibly fluffy sourdough to start (house made bread of course), picked vegetables and cured meat. Followed by main which was house made pasta (the ragu and the tortellini are both so amazing and authentic Italian dishes local to their origins as our waiter explained). A juicy steak cooked to perfection and a side of roast potato's in butter and chives (seriously the best potato's I've ever been served) and desert was light and fluffy fresh profiteroles (an assortment of custard and chocolate fillings) and ice cream with roast apricots and crumble just the perfect palet cleanser and so fresh with the combination of flavours and contrasting textures! We will definately be back at Oster again soon and will be reccomending it to everyone. What a great experience!
Excellent food and service - should become a Richmond destination restaurant.
Our favourite date place. Excellent food and service!
Being close to our home we find this restaurant a local gem with terrific food, very good wine list and delightful service.
Great venue, tasty food and amazing service. Definitely recommend.
love the service given by all staff
really calm and pleasant atmosphere
We came for lunch on a warm Saturday afternoon.
The place looks beautiful, rustic but elegant.
We had the lunch menù, the lamb was divine.
Smart local wine list, well structured.
We’ll definitely be back.
Can’t wait to try the 5 course menu at night time.
We love this place! Spectacular creative modern dishes without being too pretentious. The staff is friendly and professional. By far the best restaurant in this area.
Thank you Ostēr for the wonderful meal!
What a wonderful lunch today. Beautiful food and incredible service. The lamb in the lunch special is to die for. Thanks Oster, your service and food selection made our special lunch something to remember. Cheers Josh.
food was odd and overpriced. I didnt like my pasta at all. could have made better at home
We are really sorry you didn't enjoy your pasta. We focus on a contemporary menu, based on the seasonality of the ingredients and influenced by modern techniques. As we explained at the time of your order, the pasta was made to create a contrast between the cheese emulsion and the texture/colour of the dehydrate chilli and parsley. While pastas in the $20 mark are very rare in Melbourne, we would've been more than happy to replace it with another dish if notified before this review.
This was our first timing dining at Oster but from the minute we walked in we felt like old friends. We had the Chef’s special that included scallops, steak tartare, a ravioli dish and wagyu beef followed by a delicious dessert. We will definitely be back!
Lovely dinner, minor service glitch, corrected in a prompt and friendly manner, with compensation. Highly recommended
Thank you for your review Rob. Sorry for the little delay in getting your food and appreciate you enjoyed the tiramisu! Looking forward to seeing you at Oster again soon!

Birthday degustation bliss! Bea
Thank you for your review! we always strive to offer a different and evolving degustation menu showcasing the amazing local produce we receive every day!
Really wanted to enjoy this restaurant. Unfortunately it missed the mark a bit with some of the food. Negroni was a bit bitter ?Was the vermouth forgotten? Zucchini pasta entree was a bit bland - the dish felt a bit experimental. My wifes lamb was excellent but the market fish was a little overwhelmed by the bitter side vegetables.
Not sure what went wrong but i presume there is some experimentation over the summer break.
The restaurant manager was really good to discuss some of these concerns with us and we look forward to dining there again
