It’s not every day this city presents you with a massive art deco, Shangri-La filled with brown leather banquettes and marble walls, and dry-aged porterhouses the size of babies. Closing some type of deal over portobello mushroom steaks and a bottle of Groth cab? Sure, you could do that here. In fact, you should. But come back at night. Bring someone tall who knows what to do with a cocktail and a little black dress. Next (and this is important), tell the host to take you directly to a booth. That’s inside of a cabana. Don’t mince words, because what happens next is... exactly that. Looks just like the kind of cabana you’d see at a pool. Except it’s in a steakhouse, which is, convenient. Shut the curtains. Don’t open them until someone comes by with two petite filets and some sautéed seaweed in soy-butter glaze. Eat this. Enjoy this. Then call upon a round of basil, cucumber or ginger martinis and enjoy those, too. Then probably shut the curtains again.

Tips from the Net @ Osso Steakhouse

Make sure you check your final tab here! They charged us an extra $120 of random things we did not order. When we pointed it out, our waiter blamed the training waiter and did absolutely nothing to compensate for almost charging us $120 and getting a tip on top of that. The food tasted good but 2/4 of our party got a low key food poisoning. I guess we shouldn't have ordered seafood in a steakhouse... GooglePlace - February 2018

Well what can I say. Actually the environment I liked, the service was very good and very customer friendly, now for the food. The steak really wasn’t very good at all. Ordered bone in ribeye, it was very thick, cold in the middle, it was almost like they had tried to cook it straight from the fridge, he fat was cold and hard. This order was sent back and instead went for the bone in fillet. It was well cooked to medium rare, but really lacking in flavour. Don’t waste your money here, try another steak house.

I'll start with the negative: the place is so fancy, I felt too embarrassed to ask for ketchup to go with my otherwise delicious crispy roasted potatoes. So I took off a star (in my mind.) But the terrific service and wonderful ambiance, (plus a New York strip that might've been the best ever) made me quickly add it back, because if this isn't a 5 star steakhouse, I don't know what is.

Delicious food! We shared the crab cake and won ton appetizers. I highly recommend the crab cakes! We had the petite filet and had crab entrees and again both were delicious. The waiter was super personable and attentive. The restaurant is very clean and upscale. We had a wonderful experience and already planned our next dinner there. GooglePlace - December 2017

The waiter threw a candle at my date, accidentally however still unacceptable. The restaurant is highly overpriced for the quality. My steak didn't have good seasoning. The steak was not to temp, even though I ordered it chef's recommendation, which was a standard medium rare. Service is haphazard at best. Atmosphere is merely okay. Nothing worth making a visit to this mess of a restaurant. SF has much better steakhouses for less money. To be avoided at all costs. GooglePlace - December 2017
