We felt a bit sick afterwards
Good food but a little loud sitting outside in downtown Santa Cruz
Oswald is fabulous. Owner chef Damani is a rock star, the bartender is most excellent.
We enjoyed the wine and the dinners. I have noticed in the last few times I’ve eaten at all the walls I felt there was a little too much salt on the items.
Catching up with friends for lunch so we really didn’t mind the extremely slow service and long ticket times for food.
Probably 20-25 minutes.
Food was good.
I had two of the same special drinks. Both tasted completely different.
Server and bartender really don’t seem to enjoy their jobs. No smiles nor thanks for coming in.
Our go to for fine dining downtown. Excellent chefs using seasonal ingredients and probably the best bartender in the county.
As always Oswald comes through with a great meal! Ling Cod was fantastic and the cocktails were delightful!
The ambiance is out dated, and dirty feeling. The flavor of the food is good, but not worth the price point. The service/staff are the best part of the experience.
I invited my cousin here to celebrate her birthday dinner. We were one of the first guest to arrive so the atmosphere pretty chill on a early Thursday evening; was a little down and dim inside. Waitress was nice and shared the specials. Food was good, hot, and perfect portion.
We ordered a light meal. I recommended the fried chicken to my friend and it is always excellent. I had the crab & avocado “tower” it was very yummy as usual. Service was great and the cocktails were superb. Gin&tonic with Hendricks and the strawberry and cucumber special cocktail. I always enjoy the art display as well.
Made a reservation for lunch since the restaurant can get quite busy. It was good.
I had the delicious burger and fries and so did my friend. Nice way to spend Saturday afternoon.
Fantastic food! Enjoyed the sunshine & outdoor seating. Service inconsistent.
As always lovely craft cocktails to start, a nice selection of small plate and entrees that are simple and well prepared. Staff is busy, but attentive.
Excellent experience! The food and customer service was on point. Oswald is our go to restaurant in Santa Cruz.
Music outside was annoying …nice smooth jazz would be nice!
Oswald was an absolutely incredible experience. The seasonal fruit cocktail was amazing, and whoever was behind the bar knew exactly what they were doing.
The soups we enjoyed were absolutely phenomenal, well balanced and a great starter.
For my entree I enjoyed the duck confit, perfectly tender and fall off the bone. The fried rice it was served on was well rounded and paired incredibly with the other small components on the plate. Overall an incredible dish.
My fiancée had the salmon, and it was beautiful seared off, and the purée beneath it was incredible.
We were thrilled with our experience and really happy to support a black owned business in Santa Cruz.
Well prepared delicious food including chocolate soufflé for dessert and adult yummy beverages
First impression great, bartender a gem. However, when it came to dinner.....
I ordered a fish dish with 'Risotto'. There was no risotto, chopped potatoes instead. The menu didn't have the word potato on it anywhere. When I asked our server about the dish she said the potatoes were their type of Risotto! I told her I was very disappointed, that it was a false explanation of the dish on the menu. She started to defend the chef and how the item was listed. Thats when I got mad. Customer service wise she should have said she was sorry and would tell the chef. Thats all it should take to make things better. But it got worse when she kept trying to justify the wrong. Needless to say, we left and will not be going back.
We ate outside and it was lovely! The manager stopped by and gave us the history of the restaurant and how they got their name. Our waiter and server were all fantastic. This chef-owned restaurant is not to be missed! What a jewel! Everything from our appetizers to the salad to the entrees, dessert and cocktails we done to perfection. We loved this place and will be back next time we are in Santa Cruz! Don't miss it!
Great fried chicken, coconut shrimp was delicious.
Fabulous dinner. Great choices for any menu, let alone a somewhat limited one. Every course was spectacular. As was service.
Always good food and service
We have known this restaurant almost from its beginnings. The original chef-owner was named Oswald, and I recall how good it was from the start. It has since moved to its present location and the current chef-owner is Damani Thomas, who is very talented indeed.
When the pandemic broke out, the restaurant needed help, and the public funded GoFundMe far beyond what the chef was asking to enable them to survive.
We revisited Oswald’s right after it reopened for indoor dining. We were seated at the time we reserved, and from that moment on, service was wonderful. The bar is large, well-stocked, and our drinks were prompt and delicious.
The chef is toeing an interesting line: providing the popular foods that the young and not-well-healed like: a superb fried chicken and salad, fried oysters and salad, hamburgers, and pizza.
But for those like us who want to experience the foods of a very good chef, we had duck confit on a delicious risotto with fresh herbs. I make a good confit myself, and this is the first time, I found one that was even better.
The foods, from appetizers to desserts, were sophisticated. The service warm and very professional, and the noise level tolerable. We will return.
One of our favorite Santa Cruz restaurants for 20 years!
Ozwald serves consistently high quality and delicious food and they have done a nice job of responding to the challenges of Covid with a spacious and comfortable outdoor seating area.
My Caesar salad with Arctic char was really delicious. Fish perfectly cooked. Side of sautéed spinach was a nice addition. My wife enjoyed her carrot ginger soup and the halibut entree. All nicely presented. The sorbet dessert was a little disappointing. More like just an ice versus a sorbet. Not enough flavor. The physical environment of the space is ok but not equal to the quality of the food. The tables and chairs need upgrading. Wait staff was very attentive and upbeat. Good service. We’ll be going back again.
Wonderful meal....wonderful service
First time visiting and we really liked it. The food was great and very reasonably priced. The service was good too. We will be back.
Great food, service and experience! We would highly recommend this restaurant...
Atmosphere was great, and it was excellent! Had the skirt steak, and it was delicious. Crab and pork tenderloin were very good too. The Meyer Lemon Cake and Creme Brûlée were a great end to the meal.
The food and service are excellent. Will try it again!
Awesome food!! Love the simple delicious taste of everything from the chef’s kitchen
Early dinner on a lovely Thursday evening, comfortable patio seating, great company, totally satisfying food and drinks and top notch service.
I went with my husband and it was our first time going. We loved it! Everything the service the food just everything was so perfect. Definitely would recommend!!
Great service! Amazing burger! Everyone loved their meal. Drinks were awesome!
Oswald's never disappoints. The food and service was on point. Go there. You will not be disappointed.
Oswald is a local gem. We sat outside and it was lovely. Nice wait staff and I had a yummy martini and then a lovely glass of Rose. We split the crab appetizer and I ordered the burger and my guest got the soup. we will be back!
Amazing. End of story. The best food ever! Can’t wait to go back!
Great food, good service, another great experience. We love Oswalds!
Food was good but took well over an hour to get our lunch. Would not recommend.
