What an amazing place. Never had a bad meal here. The chef is amazing and very talented. Wow is just an understatement!
Ossobucco is a welcome addition to the neighbhorhood. We went for our first post-vaccination indoor dining experience and it was great. Service was super. For was good, simple Italian. Portions were generous. Good date night place.
The food and service were amazing. The server overheard that we were celebrating a special event and offered us a complimentary dessert. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We'll be going back again.
Midweek and early dinner. Server was super courteous and accommodating. Drinks, appetizers, entrees, and dessert were all amazing. Strongly recommend!
I visited Ossobuco Ristorante to celebrate my birthday. The service and food were outstanding. I definitely will be returning.
Great service and good food! I dined outdoors with a group of 4, including a 3-year-old. Unfortunately their regular enclosed patio wasn't open, but they had set up comfortable tables outside the restaurant. The staff were very helpful about bringing a high chair and getting what we needed for the little one and were informative about the food. Service was attentive and quick, and we tried a variety of pasta and seafood dishes, the beet salad, and a couple desserts. The pastas are definitely a highlight and are made in house; the beet salad and desserts were also well-prepared and delicious. I think the salmon ordered by one member of our party was a little overcooked, so I would steer towards other options, but would definitely recommend a visit and hope to go back!
Food was great and service was attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back to the restaurant.
The Osso Buco was delicious. Great staff. Limited but very tasty menu
Excellent dining experience! Warm gazpacho soup and Grilled Rockfish were perfect. The food was incredible, the wait staff were helpful but not overbearing. Will absolutely come back!
The food was really good. Highly recommend this place. Visiting for a weekend and we really found a gem!
Amazing food and spectacular service!
We just moved to the neighborhood, so it was our first time visiting. The food and service were both fantastic. We sat outdoors on a perfect DC night. There was the right level of activity without it being overwhelming or infringing on your dining experience. I look forward to going back soon!
Good food, good wine, and excellent service! We enjoyed our dinner on the back patio and will definitely be back.
We were delighted by our evening at Ossobuco. We ate outside on the enclosed patio, where tables are appropriately distant & heaters could be turned on when the evening grew chilly.
Manager Luis & Gabriel, our server, were knowledgeable, skilled, efficient, & friendly without hovering. Luis provided detailed response when we asked about a dish. Food was very generously portioned & therefore easy to share at our table of four. Appetizers, mains, & desserts were all perfectly cooked & beautifully plated. The bread was crunchy & delicious, drizzled with olive oil. Wine choices were excellent.
We are so pleased that we live in Columbia Heights & can walk easily & often to this terrific Italian restaurant.
Excellent cuisine, great service, enjoyable all around.
Came here for a nice graduation dinner with my parents and it was well worth it! Complimentary prosecco and a "congratulations" plate of cheesecake which was amazing by the way. The food was great and the service was even better. I recommend!
Food was delicious if slightly overpriced. Felt a bit ignored by the staff when we walked in. Took a while for someone to pay attention to us. After that waiter was lovely and really enjoyed our pasta dishes.
Wonder wonderful restaurant! So glad we found it. In a cute and quiet area and the food was AMAZING. Great service as well.
Great service and great wine and food.
Great service great food!!
Excellent local Italian restaurant. Good quality food at reasonable prices. We will be back.
Excellent food and service. Great addition to Columbia Heights.
We had very poor service, we constantly had to ask for waters to be refilled. It felt like our sever had forgotten about us. Additionally, all of the food tasted bland and felt that it had been sitting under a heat lamp for an extended period of time. Truly a disappointing experience - will make sure not to recommend to friends.
My girlfriend and I had a great dinner at Ossobuco. This was our first time dining here and the staff were all very pleasant and attentive. The food was delicious. I definitely recommend the Veal Ossobuco dish. It was the best ossobuco I have ever had. We will definitely be back soon.
Excellent food and attentive, personal service. An expensive night, but worth it.
The food was amazing and the service was great! The waitress was very attentive
Ossobuco Restorante is a terrific neighborhood restaurant. This was my fourth visit since they opened late last year and have never been disappointed. All the dishes were expertly prepared. I especially liked the grilled octopus, fried calamari, and lobster risotto.
Great food and great service! Definitely recommend.
Ossubuco does the pandemic right. Isolated and protected dining spaces inside with large and open spaces outside make a intimate inside dining area warm and wonderful. My wife and I have not gone out much and not to D.C. at all -- we live in Arlington. However, we have good friends in the District and this restaurant is nearby their home. 11th Street has become a dining venue to my surprise.
The staff knew our friends because they have dined their multiple times. I love linguini and clams and the taste was delicious and presentation artistic. I hope I am not over hyping this -- but I am originally from NY and the quality of the food and experience rivals my home -- just missing the shore. Desert cannot be missed -- I had tiramisu. Altogether a delightful experience with good friends after the isolation.
Great experience, delicious food, small back patio but romantic and perfect for our anniversary celebration
Quiet back patio was a delightful place to have dinner.
Great space with lots of outdoor seating. The staff was very attentive as well.
We had the best celebratory dinner thanks to the staff. Can’t wait to come back!
Service was awesome and the food and drinks were perfect! A must visit!! I will return.
Fantastic experience on the backyard patio. Authentic Italian and pasta cooked in house. We will be back!
Went for my birthday dinner last Friday and we had a wonderful meal. We shared several appetizers which were all delicious (beet salad, calamari, ceasar salad). We all tried different entrees and were all extremely happy with our meals -- the lobster risotto was delicious. Service was wonderful. After our meal, our server gave us a tour of the space which was much bigger than I realized -- in addition to their sidewalk/streetery seating and the main dining room, they have a second floor room and a really charming back patio I definitely want to try out next time I visit. Very pandemic friendly as well -- they had barriers set up between all of the indoor tables and there were not other tables anywhere near us.
The atmosphere was great and the staff was helpful.
The octopus appetizers were over salted. It honestly gave me a slight headache. The rockfish dinner was delicious, but the quantity of food was the definition of slim and for the price of the plate and I think that's unfortunate. They need to add something more filling to the plate and not raise the price. I was hungry immediately after I left. I ordered wings (yeah) at Wonderland. The desserts looked good beware those were pricey too, we passed though, we were in a rush (wonderland can get packed and we wanted to avoid the wait). And the steak (again delicious) was $29 with no sides, so he also left hungry. I see this location as a for special occasions only. To be fair I should add the pasta dishes maybe more filling than the meat plate (including fish) options. One of the people at the table said the chicken dish was filling.
Loved the outdoor terrace. Awesome Calamari. Even better Tiramisu. Service was friendly and good, but absent for stretches.
Everything about this place is AMAZING!!! I have never eaten at an establishment more welcoming, clean and quaint such as this restaurant. I will definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful environment. The food was amazing, the drinks were amazing and the customer service was incomparable. My absolute favorite part of this place was the amazing aroma of the unique fire pit on the outside seating. Absolutely 10/10 visit!!
