Situated in Boston's vibrant Back Bay neighborhood, One Charles Street South is home to a modern Mediterranean eatery known as Ostra. Led by Chef/Owner Jamie Mammano and Executive Chef Mitchell Randall, our restaurant draws inspiration from the abundant seafood offerings of both local New England waters and the coastal regions of Europe.

New Bedford
About the restaurant
Serves fresh, bold and innovative food that reflects the history of New Bedford and celebrates the New Bedford fishermen, their catch and their culture.

Menu focuses on local fishermen’s catch of the day, old school seafood favorites and a sprinkling of modern seafood interpretations. Menu ranges from raw bar, to warm and cold lobster rolls, baked cod, bacon wrapped scallops, bouillabaisse and grilled NY Strip.

Large bar and spectacular views of the artful New Bedford Fishing Fleet. Large covered outside deck overlooking the fishing boats and harbor. Centrally located beside the Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Ferries. Large parking lot.

And, of course, the hospitality is second to none. Service is what built the business.

I had dinner here last night for the first time & was extremely satisfied with my experience. The food, the service, & the atmosphere were top notch. I made a reservation for two at 5pm. Not only did I have to change the party size to one, but I was also 15 minutes late. The restaurant was very accommodating. I sat outside & enjoyed looking at the boats as I was dining. I ordered the Lobster Thermidor, which was an outstanding dish. Melt in your mouth lobster 🦞❤️ For drinks, I got a French Cosmo, Espresso Martini & a glass of wine. All delicious. My server, Cliff, was very kind/professional & didn’t make me feel rushed as I read my book while eating. Would definitely recommend for a nice meal near the water 🤌🏽💛✨

Food was fantastic - we had a filet, and the scallops. Bananas Foster dessert was to die for. Service is impeccable. Pricing is a bit steep, so have to keep to special occasions. Wish it could be more often.

Pretty place with good food but overpriced and not the best service. They completely forgot to set aside a table for our reservation and we still had to wait a while. Happened to another group waiting next to us as well.
