What a wonderful surprise dining here was! Amazing value for money! Stunning food; friendly, knowledgable and generous hosts and a fabulous ambience. Our new favourite! We will be back
The oysters was not very fresh(either pr-shucked or stored for days), dry inside. Otherwise are good, a little bit lacking in service but overall was a good experience.
Lovely meal, very good service. Can’t wait to head back to Oster when we open up fully as the atmosphere will be great!
Dishes were beautifully prepared and service was of a high standard.
First visit and loved it. From the outstanding service from the friendly and knowledgeable team to sensational food of the Chef's Menu -plus a divine dessert of strawberry gum ice cream, vanilla bean cream and banana crumble, Oster was a real surprise package. We will definitely be back.
What an amazing place. The food was incredible and the service was friendly and accommodating. Such a great restaurant to try. Highly recommend!!!
1) Food is a winning combination of being humble, simple-looking but with sophisticated flavours and homage to Nothern Italy regions. Simply amazing.
2) Staff was extremely hospitable and knowledgeable about the dishes and win on offer.
3) Just an awesome place!
Hi Brian, Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your Ostēr experience. Can't wait to have you back again soon! Ostēr
We had a lovely evening. Great menu and delightful food. The set menu was our choice and would recommend for value. The food was exceptional. The main duck dish was so yummy. Oster thank you
Michele and Ross Gilbert
Thank you for your review Michelle. So glad you and Ross enjoyed everything, especially the Duck dish. Looking forward to hosting you again soon! Ostēr
Everything was wonderful & l look forward to going back.
Thanks Danielle. We can't wait to have you back! Ostēr
A warmth on arrival with flexible seating options. A very smart contemporary fit out. Quality stemware. Brilliant wine by the glass list with Australian wines featured. Sommelier was seamless with providing easy convivial advise.
The mains expertly executed, with clearly a fresh produce driven emphasis.
Comprehensive service with floor staff, understanding their roles, providing crisp warm service.
I’ll be back many times over the Summer
Thank you for your glowing review! We are thrilled you enjoyed your evening and our wine offering. We can't wait to host you again soon. Ostēr
Great local Richmond eatery with wonderful service!
Thanks for your review Sally. Can't wait to host you again soon! Ostēr
Loved it! Both our servers were amazing. Our first meal out after lockdown and it reminded us a big part of the reason why we dine out is not just great food but the theatre of dining out and the people who love their jobs and share their passion for food and hospitality with you. Food was great too, super fresh, delicately flavoured seafood to start and tasty mains.
Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your evening with us post-lockdown. We can't wait to host you again soon. Ostēr
Fabulous meal and good value. very friendly service. Good wine list and a great negroni
Thank you for your lovely review Mary! Can't wait to see your for more Negroni's soon. Ostēr
Amazing food and service. The food was so fresh and beautiful, will come again once re opened.
Thank you for your review. We look forward to being able to host you again. Ostēr
Excellent night out. Good food, wonderful stuff maintaining all appropriate Covid precautions. Wine list could be a bit better. Will return soon
Thank you for you lovely review Rob. We can't wait to be able to host you again. Ostēr
We went to Oster for a mid week birthday dinner during the covid-19 period so it was a strange time to be going out.
The pared back menu was to the point, minimal but definitely highlighted the skills in the kitchen. Everything we had was exceptional, with the Culatello and the ricotta filled pasta really standing out.
The service from the front of house owner was spot on; attentive, very knowledgeable and just the right amount of friendly.
We expected a nice night at Oster, instead we got an amazing night and can't give them more praise for doing a brilliant job in trying times.
We look forward to going back again, soon.
Hi Jeremy, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are very pleased you enjoyed your birthday dinner and can't wait to be able to host you again post-iso. Ostēr
Below average service (was told to access the food menu online on their website as we were seated in an area where we couldn't see the menu on the wall) and tuna was over-cooked as a main. Won't return in a heartbeat
Hi Annie, We are deeply sorry that you didn’t enjoy your experience at Ostēr and would love the opportunity to discuss this further with via email.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Ostēr

Great service and food.
Thanks for your review! We look forward to hosting you again soon. Ostēr
Delicious food and great staff. A highlight are the special cocktails such as the Cacao Negroni and the Highballs.
Thanks so much for your lovely review! Glad you liked our new cocktails. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Warm regards, Ostēr
Food was perfect! Service was excellent. We will definitely be back!
Thanks for your review. We look forward to hosting you again soon! Ostēr
Beautifully plated food. Some food slightly bland, needing more flavour. Entree soup with muscles lacked flavour, but had good texture. The tuna with bbq sauce was dry and needed more seasoning. Dessert was beautiful, ice-cream divine and presentation stunning.
Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your review. We always take the opportunity to take reviews as a chance to improve our offering. Your comments have been passed on to our kitchen team. Warm regards, Ostēr
Oster means "host" and host they did. Small menu but enough to choose from. We shared oysters, the best chicken and pork terrine ever and fabulous steak with excellent potatoes and greens. Good wine selection. Fabulous service (the tiramisu was pretty special too!)/ We'll be back
Hi Carolene, Thank you for your kind words. We are thrilled our name translated to an amazing experience for you. Can't wait to host you again soon! Ostēr
Excellent food, service and ambience. Wonderfully crafted food and wine menu And relaxed fine dining atmosphere - recommend to all!
Thanks for your review Chaz! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. Look forward to hosting you again soon. Ostēr
Phenomenal staff and sensational food. I would highly recommend and I cannot wait to get back.
So glad we chose Ostēr for our first post Iso dinner. The arrangement of tables to comply with regulations did not diminish the ambience. The staff were fabulous and our swordfish was gorgeous. My husband discovered a new beer and my dry martini was excellent. Thanks for a lovely evening.
We have been to this restaurant several times and it never disappoints. Osvaldo and Nick are superb hosts and the food is delicious and always varied. Will continue to return. So glad you're back.
We had a great experience at Oster. Very friendly and attentive staff, warm atmosphere and lovely food.
Staff are very helpful and professional, very knowledgeable of the food and wines being served.
Food was delicious, better than I've ever had before at a restaurant in the area!
We went with my husband last week, to celebrate our 5th Anniversary and it was stupendous! I come from an italian family so I'm always keen on trying new italian restaurants around Melbourne. In my reservation I added we were celebrating and the staff treated us incredible. Give this place a try and I'm sure you will leave feeling super happy and full! Oh, and try the Tiramisú, by far, one of the best one we've tried in Melbs.
Inviting decor. Delicious food - we had the duck which was cooked to perfection and the raspberry meringue dessert was to die for. Thank you
Thank you for your review Marian. We are glad you enjoyed everything. Can't wait to host you again soon! Oster
Gorgeous dinner! Our group of 5 had a fantastic evening, service and food were impeccable. Great to have such quality nearby, a true local gem. We’ll be back very soon :)
Hi Lili, Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure hosting your group over the weekend! See you again soon. Ostēr
Beautifully original dishes coupled with wines that never fail to impress. We always walk away with big smiles on our faces.
Hi Cleo, Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Warm regards, Ostēr
Outstanding and innovative Italian dishes using beautiful fresh ingredients. Definitely try the casoncelli!! It’s a delightfully balanced dish of fresh pasta, cheese and sage. The meringata for dessert was divine. I will be returning.
I have eaten at Oster a few times now and the food is amazing.
The menu changes weekly so there is always something new to try.
Home made bread - yum! Extensive wine list.
Service is impeccable.
You will not be disappointed.
Thanks for your kind words Kathy. We love our bread too! Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Ostēr
Did the tasting menu and received 5 dishes with exactly the same texture. No variation in the plating, and we were not served food to match what we were drinking (fish with a heavy red wine).
Would definitely not recommend.
Thank you for your review and for taking the time to talk to us over the phone. Due to limited space, we have responded to your review on Google. Ostēr
the food/wine were amazing.
The waitress was 'new" I'm assuming, so she we had no issue with her she just missed a couple of the basics but it certainly did not effect the night.
The only thing that put a damper on the night was the very annoying women sitting next to us who needs to learn some etiquette when dining out with other people around her.
We will be back though...
Good people, and excellent real Italian food. A new alternative
Hi Lloyd, Thank you for your review. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Ostēr
