Dandy fine food
Nice casual dinning. Great food and a good spot to meet good friends. we live ~ 35 miles northeast of Eugene and our friends live about the same distance due east of Eugene. We meet in Eugene occasionally and try to chose a new place to meet each time. The OX and FIN was a keeper.

Our dinner was amazing. It took a little too long before our waitress addressed our table, but that was our only complaint. Food was amazing. Love this place!

Crepes that melt in your mouth, Polenta bursting with creamy flavors that everyone had to have a taste of ( several times).
Eggs Benedict .What's not to love ! Spicy Hot Bloody Mary....

We love this restaurant! The food is fresh, prepared with skill and love, and the service is wonderful. It is upscale Italian faire, seasoned to perfection and cooked just right. The fish dishes are to die for.

Overall, the food was excellent. However, the grilled octopus, which we have had several times before, wasn't as flavorful as it has been in the past. My duck breast was perfectly done, and very tasty with a huckleberry sauce. Desserts, especially the olive oil cake, were yummy.

A very pleasant discovery...
The Ox & Fin is a very nice place to eat. This was the first time I had tried it. The menu was certainly distinctive and interesting, and featured an appetizer I've never tasted which is sauteed octopus tentacles, which were interesting and something that's worth trying again. They offer this, presumably, as an alternative to the usual breaded and deep fried calamari, which I happen to love but which this restaurant does not have.

Comfortable and fashionable atmosphere, delicious food, good service, suitable for out-of-town guests. We had a great time. For an elegant 3 or 4 course meal with drinks and coffee expect $60+ per person with good tip.

Ox & Finn
By the looks of it (not negative - just new in a shopping center) - i initially thought it was a chain. The food, however, and the waiter were very, very good! Some of the best - if not the best (for it's type) in Eugene!

I really enjoyed my visit
My family came here to celebrate my college graduation and we were all very pleased. The service was incredible and the staff was very knowledgable about to food. I really appreciate when servers are able to make recommendations with an explanation of why they prefer one item over another on the menu. The drinks were all delicious. Portion sizes are appropriate for a meal, which is nice to avoid over stuffing yourself to the point of being uncomfortable at dinner. We will definitely be back

A great meal at last
There have been reports of many uneven meals at Ox and Fin by many of my friends, so hearing that Mike, the chef from Red Agave was now on board, I took a chance
I ordered a Ransom with a twist, then THE best tomato salad I have EVER tasted appeared before me. Shaved fennel, at least 5 heirloom tomatoes types, and small slices of hot pepper over greens with a tasty vinaigrette dressing. I will go back just for this!
Next came a superb steak with spinach and thinly sliced squash that was perfectly done, too many mashed potatoes (I left some on the plate). More greens would have been nice.
I ordered Westry pinot noir and in the right glass, it was perfect.
Dessert was Fagatto, Vanilla ice-cream from Stella with two shots of espresso. Great!

The food was marvelous although they were very proud of their wines - expensive even the within state choices. We started with the Field Greens and the cured meat plate which was unusual but delicous. We had the Scallops and the Tuna (they were out of the Salmon) which were sweet with a nice salt punch. The Date Ice Cream was delicious. The owner/manager was gracious and came to ask about our meal. Nice setting albeit difficult to find even with a GPS as it is tucked way back within a courtyard.

Sat half in half outside for
Sat half in half outside for dinner for SIL's b-day. Ambience was very nice - near the courtyard so enjoyed some music as well provided by the mall on Wednesdays and Fridays. Didn't care for the swap of tuna for salmon in their seafood dish - should have stuck with the scallops which I'd enjoyed before. SIL wanted steak - waiter lavished praise on the buffalo so she ordered that; my husband ordered hangar steak. SIL didn't like the buffalo so they switched - we all thought the hangar steak was much better. Service was friendly but a little slow.

Awesome August Birthday Spot!
My husband's birthday was coming up and I saw a reminder that Ox & Fin was part of the CASA "Taste of Summer campaign on August 6th, his birthday. It was a 90 something degree day, but the outside table was in the shade and the temperature was perfect for dinner. It was the most relaxing dinner we've shared in a long time. Food was excellent and we never felt rushed. I've already recommended Ox & Fin to several friends as a great special occasion spot.

Good to be back!
After several years of uneven experiences, things are so much better at this location. We will return soon.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just what I had hoped
I had been to the Ox and Fin once before for a special occasion, and planned to take my girlfriend on a late sunday night after work. We both have dietary restrictions which makes it complicated to dine, but our server was fully accommodating and had knowledge of ingredients in each dish. This alone takes the stress and awkwardness out of our dining. The house cocktails were great, and when there was an order mixup, it was taken care of smoothly and I was comped a dessert for the trouble.

Fun evening out
It was almost an hour before we were served dinner. Food was great except Caesar salad was marginal.

Great find in Eugene. Has both indoor and outdoor seating. Tucked in a small open air mall but food is excellent!

Ahi and melon delicious!

The food was uniformly good.
The food was uniformly good. A couple of us had the grilled octopus as an appetizer, which never fails to disappoint. The pasta with homemade fennel sausage was outstanding as were the diver scallops. Service was a bit slow, which was surprising given the fact that the restaurant was half-empty, which was strange for a Saturday night.

Fantastic Food for a Foodie!!
We had 3 appetizers: grilled octopus, grilled melon and prosciutto and the wild boar ribs. The first 2 were excellent but we didn't care for the sauce (and so much of it) on the wild boar ribs but the taste of the meat was really good.
The chicken breast entree was moist and tasty, the kobe beef burger was excellent and cooked to perfection and the truffle fries were great!! The butternut squash was wonderful if you like spicy food but was not expecting the sauce to have habaneros in it. When I think of butternut squash I thing bland comfort food not "too hot to eat food" - but my husband loved it so he took it. We told the waiter that they need to tone it down or at least say it is spicy on the menu.

New favorite place!
From the moment walked in, my husband and I were enchanted with Ox and Fin. The atmosphere and the friendliness of the hostess/waiter. Both if our meals were perfect, but the drinks stole the show. The special cocktail was to dye for and that was the best lemon drop I've ever had. My only complaint is that it's a 5 hour drive from we're we live, we want to comeback again soon!!

Consistently worth the trip
Ox & Fin refuses to disappoint. The staff is great - they make you feel like they are really glad you are there, from the moment you walk in until you leave. The food is a delight, with specials that actually merit the name. The menu changes seasonally, with a few standard dishes kept on for those who just want a simple meal prepared well. The diver scallop dish I had this time was remarkable! And no trip to Ox & FIn is complete without coffee and freshly prepared "doughnuts" - think New Orleans and beignets. I wish Ox & FIn a long life in Eugene - I will certainly be going back often.

Great restaurant, cozy, upscale.
Great restaurant, cozy, upscale. Good menu selection, a little for everyone's palate, nice wine list to complement. Food very tasty, cooked just right, nice portion sizes. Server did great job describing menu selections and making recommendations. Have eaten here several times in the past. This restaurant just keeps improving. Definitely worth trying, for lunch or dinner.

We visited for a birthday, and while it was pricy it was worth it. They had good portions, and each of the dishes we order were perfect. The steak, boar and buffalo all had great sauces' and they were all done so well that they just melted in your mouth. Even the side dishes such as roasted potatoes or Swiss chard were delicious. The waitress we had was very helpful and had noticed we were celebrating a birthday and offered a dessert. The fact that she noticed this with a full room and an entire 20 person event also going on was amazing. I really recommend it!

A memorable time
We went here with friends to celebrate my husband's birthday, as it is his favorite place! It did not disappoint. Our server was very sweet and tentative. The food is always on point, perfectly prepared and locally sourced. The desserts are amazing too! My husband's favorite is their pasta dishes which are delectable. I go for the filet mignon which is always perfect!
