Our dinner experience was great with our server being very attentive and offered an excellent New Years Eve special of baked oysters, osso bucco and strawberry mousse. Everything was prepared to perfection and were generous proportions. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We were at McEwens to celebrate New Years Eve and my daughter’s 21st Birthday. Our waitress Taylor Ann was fabulous! She went above and beyond to make our celebration perfect from the food, to the service, to the atmosphere!

One of Oxford’s finest restaurants! Tonight the food was perfection…fried oysters, poached pear salad, then lemon salmon with risotto. Beautiful soft lighting, exposed brick walls, thoughtful service…just charming! When you leave, take a stroll around the beautiful Oxford Square. Perfect evening!

Had the Chilean Sea Bass. Spectacular. Food was outstanding and with beautiful presentation. Aaron was spot on with his knowledge of Bourbons and Old Fashioned's. Great experience.

Absolutely HORRIBLE. My husband ordered duck gumbo, came out quickly and delicious as always. The three of us had ordered from the brunch menu, two burgers and chicken/waffles. We waited 30-40 minutes and still no food. Finally our waitress said there had been a mishap in the kitchen and lost our receipt. That she needed our order again and the kitchen would make “it on the fly”. While we have watched other being seated after this and served food. In fact, burgers and chicken/waffles. Waited another 30 minutes and they said that it would be out soon. Never showed up. Finally, we gave up and left. Definitely disappointing and not the service we expected. Manager never came by our table or noticed. We usually enjoy their brunch & had reservations for months to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday (her favorite place for chicken & waffles)

The food is always good and the timing, waiters,etc. above average. It is a little noisey when full of diners. The manager is excellant in solving problems and making the guests feel special and well taken care of. The reservation online service was a little difficult after I complete and ws accepted by the service I was offered 2 more reservations which made for uneasiness with the original reservatiion.

Food and service was excellent...only complaint was the portion size of the mussels entree...it was even paltry when compared to appetizer portions at other places. But great flavors and would go back again.

We have eaten here for years and years, due to the previously consistently great food and service. NO LONGER!!! We will not be returning. The menu has changed on several fronts, no longer offering the Caesar salad, prime rib, and other options The salmon was EXTREMELY MEDIOCRE. A total WASTE OF MONEY. Service was so-so. We are so sad that this establishment has gone so far downhill.

Definitely top five WORST meals of my entire life. Seriously inedible. Server made no mention of my friend and I both not eating and didn’t offer to accommodate or apologize. Pretty poor experience overall from start to finish and a waste of $120.

Seriously unsure how this place has the rating it does because I travel all over the world and would be hard pressed to match such a negative experience in recent years.

It was our first time at McEwens. The food was excellent. We order the fired oysters to share and loved them. I had the sea bass (it was perfectly cooked) my husband had the steak (he loved the chimichuri sauce) we were also impressed with the cocktail menu both variety and innovation. Definitely will return.
