    My parents, sister and I had a wonderful evening here! The staff was very friendly and attentive, and the manager was super friendly. We ended up chatting with him about the french fries, which we hadn't ordered, and he brought us a big side of them for free! My mom also had a question about the chocolate dessert we got, and the manager brought out the actual chocolate used in the cake and told us all about where it's from. We could just tell this place uses quality ingredients. Our wine was great and we were all very happy with the steaks we got. I liked that you could do a half-order of most of their entrees as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

    We discovered this restaurant during Univ. of Oregon move-in and have now been back twice! Love the atmosphere, food, drinks and overall vibe. But best of all was our service from Brian. Outstanding!! He went out of his way to make our son feel welcome in the state of Oregon (we're from Indiana) and was meticulous in his food and drink suggestions. A better person (and service!) you won't find anywhere! I only hesitate to recommend for fear of not getting a table the next time we're in town!

    We looked forward to dining at Ox & Fin as we had been there previously and it was quite good. This time, not so much. We ordered caesar salads, and hanger steak and clams/capellini. Salads were watery/bland. After waiting a long time after finishing salads (30 min), the server returned to ask if it was a fillet or the hanger steak. Once she verified it was the hanger, she said it would served be right up, but we still had to wait. Eventually asked, and was told the steak was "being plated." Still another 10+ minutes before we were served. Then, the steak was cold and the clams/capellini dish was tasteless (basically just butter and water). We were offered complementary dessert, which we appreciated, but overall disappointing experience.

    We have eaten here several times (both lunch and dinner)and always had a good experience. It is located on a pleasant plaza in a small mall with limited outdoor seating. The menu offers a good variety of choices for all dietary inclinations and the meals have been excellent without exception. The service is friendly and attentive. We will definitely return

    A group of four women met at Ox and Fin for dinner after a movie. We arrived at 6:45 and got our meal at 7:45. People were getting impatient about having to wait so long. They did not seem to be overly busy and the kitchen staff did not look like they were overwhelmed with orders. The other three enjoyed their steaks. My scallops on squid ink noodles was ok. It seemed awfully oily to me and I would not order it again. We all felt that the service was very slow and it was pretty expensive for what we got.

    The service was excellent. We were immediately greeted and seated in a nice comfy booth. Our server got our drinks right away. Three of us ordered the filet mignon, 6 oz. Cooked to perfection and the mashed potatoes and vegetables were delicious. Our fourth party ordered the rib eye and it was not to his liking, way overcooked to the point of looking burnt. I am sure he didn't want to cause a fuss as to why he didn't say anything to our server. Loved the location.

    Service was great, the ambiance was nice- although the open garage door let in flies- and the Grapefruit Cosmopolitan was very tasty. While the meal had fresh ingredients, it was under seasoned and merely average. Not worth the premium price. Might try it again for lunch but won't be back for dinner.

    The staff was great. The food was good. They mixed up medium on one steak and medium rare on the other (mine was medium and my wife's was medium rare and they were supposed to be the other way around), but we did not send them back. They were good anyway. We would go back for another special occasion (it was our anniversary)

They also got an apology for slow service(45 min from order to table with 8 couples in the bar and a few people outside) the court also got a discount on their bill. We could he the good service they were getting yet we got none of the same. While I always try a place twice before not recommending it, it may be some time before I go back for a second evaluation

    After seeing OpenTable average of 4 stars for this local restaurant, we went for the first time for our 33rd wedding anniversary dinner on Friday. Our reservation was 6:45, and three different people came and told us someone would be with us shortly, and then that the host would be with us shortly. He checked the computer, asked our name, (after just being told by a girl), then told us we'd have to wait 5-10 minutes. After 1 minute at the bar, he came and said our table is ready, apologizing for the "snafu"?. Table extremely small, oversize plates for everything, decent food but not great and lackluster, indifferent service. I'm a serious cook and foodie. All in all just ok and definitely not a special occasion.

    This restaurant was once Osteria Sfizio, and it was then, to our taste, the best restaurant in Eugene. The change to Ox and Fin was accompanied by a decrease in quality, (?a change in cooks). The menu moved toward more meat, swerving away from Italian, both diminishments we felt. The best thing we had this time was the octopus hors d'oeuvre, which has not changed from Sfizio 3 or 4 years ago. The salmon was not cooked well done as requested the first time; it got somewhat closer after a 5 minute wait. It was too salty; the accompanying vegetables were, oddly raw. The scallops were also somewhat salty. We got both with one ingredient missing, since without adjustments, there was meat in everything, chorizo here and pork belly there.

    Dependable sounds boring, but is actually high praise, as it indicates that I know I will get a good meal here. Although not simple peasant fare, it is also not overwhelming precious. No over the top ingredients that are more off-putting than enticing.

    I dine out a lot and I have waited tables too. So, generally I can give a wait person a break. But this was over the top bad. It was our Mother's Day dinner (night before official Mother's Day) and we wanted something special. Even though the food was good, it overall sucked. No info on specials, soup of the day. The our drinks took forever. Then our order placement took forever (after having been seated for an hour!) Then when the food was taking forever, she blamed my husband because he had changed his food order (before it was being prepared, he changed it before the salads came out). We thought she was ill at first, but after she blamed my husband I realized she just sucked.

    It was love at first bite. As we lingered over tidbits of fine cheese and fruit, the softly dim light cast a radiant glow upon our guest. We knew immediately: this was going to be good. Perfectly served in a timely fashion: second course, the beautifully arranged beet salad arrived. Perfection. Guest rambled on about the quality of the service. The host checked back to confirm our satisfaction. The affair went into the evening with the scallops gently seared. Cooked al dente pasta. Finished with a lite aperitif and conversation. Everything-even the check was a nice surprise. Where else will you get a perfectly medium rare natural beef burger on hand made fresh brioche bun for under $12 bucks? A restaurant worth keeping in our home town!

    We were very pleasantly surprised to discover this gem in the Oakway mall. Because I had a birthday we asked for a special, quiet, somewhat romantic table. We made a reservation in advance, which is often not an option for two, and we're happy to learn they would take a reservation. Because our table was not quite ready, the management offered us both a complimentary drink of our choice while we waited. A very nice surprise. Ox and Fin has the choice of smaller options for their entries, perfect for me. I had filet mignon, and my husband had a ribeye steak. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. One of the very best Filets I have had in Eugene. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. The meals were reasonably priced.

    The atmosphere and decor are nice, but the food was not wonderful, and the service was dismal. It took a full hour to get our food, during which time we tried repeatedly to get someone's attention but were ignored. When our food arrived, the filet mignon was good, but the ribeye was disappointingly bland, and of mediocre quality. Pretty disappointing overall.

    We have been going to O&F since it took over from Sfizios...At this time we feel the menu related to pasta and to seafood is stale. The same one or two things over and over. We don't expect O&F to be as adventuresome as Sfizios, but some new pasta and seafood offerings really are needed. What is offered is good but an endless repeat. Given the octopus and the scallops, we know you can be creative.
