Visited Blue Ox for Valentine's dinner. The food was excellent, and the staff was friendly and attentive. The feel inside this restaurant is both classy and casual. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

Food was excellent. Drinks were above average but had the cost of excellent drinks. We made a reservation for 8:30 pm and were seated at 9:00pm. There was no compensation made.. we were just told that we could go to the bar to wait. Would have been 5 stars if we had been seated on time, or compensation had been made.

Always great and we've been there many times. Consistency is what brings us back, but it would be nice if there could be more creativity with the specials as they are often the same every time we come in.

The Sin Burger was the best burger my husband has ever had. My lobster risotto was great, but I think anything was going to pale in comparison to the burger. We had the tuna tartare appetizer and that was delicious too. Good drink menu. Our server was friendly and just attentive enough. Would definitely recommend!

Always enjoy this restaurant, but they are not good at accommodating requests. Asked for as quiet a table as possible and was placed in the middle of the two rooms right near the waiters station. This seems to always happen. Likely will not return because it is just too loud

Blue Ox is a 5 star restaurant. Tho dinners are avg $32 a plate. It's by far the best quality. It is also consistent. Every time we go we leave there saying "wow. That was great!" The service is perfect..not pushy not always hounding you.they really know what they are doing and run a tight ship there
