Always a good experience: Delicious food and good service. The start of our meal was particularly nice: the place was busy and we went three or four minutes without anyone coming to our table. The hostess noticed and came to our table and said I’ll get someone to serve you right away. When a hostess is paying that much attention to what is going on, promote her to manager!

McEwens is our favorite restaurant on the Square! Food is consistently really good and we can always enjoy our table conversation, unlike most restaurants on the Square.

I have reviewed McEwens on Open Table before. It is a regular stop for four of us for Sunday Brunch or an evening meal. The service is always great and the food is creative. We love the place. This past Sunday we had brunch there. My friend's grilled salmon and my steak and eggs Benedict were outstanding. Both of us would order it again.. The Brussels Sprouts that i ordered with my steak and eggs Benedict were as good as I have eaten---just outstanding. Both our wives had the Southern Chicken Cobb salad. My wife's salad came with the fried chicken. The chicken was sparse and the advertised avocado was one thin slice. Our other friend ordered her salad with grilled chicken. The meat on this salad was not sparse, but the avocado again was one thin slice. It was the first time we have had a nit to pick with a meal at McEwens in multiple years of eating there. We hope it was an anomaly.

Four of us went for a quiet evening dinner together (two couples). Two split a wedge salad and two split a Caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes. Both salads were great. The balsamic on the Caprese was exceptional. Two had seared divers scallops, one with cream succotash and one with seared Brussels sprouts. Two of us had the pork shop with Brussels sprouts and purple hull peas. All the entrees were outstanding. We each agreed that we would be willing to come back soon and order the same meal.

Our server, Taylor, was attentive without being intrusive---perfect.

A great place for a fine dining experience.

Food was good, but not outstanding. Service was great, was seated immediately, and the ambience was wonderful. Only downside was that both my daughter and I had stomach problems which landed us in the bathroom not long after our meals and throughout the night. We had 2 different entrees.

Food took almost an hour to come and then it was cold. They were very busy and seemed under staffed for a really busy football weekend. We have been here 3 times before and didn't have this problem. We will maybe try again. I'm not sure though. Very disappointed right now. Our waiter was nice but you could tell he was in the weeds. Not very attentive at all. He took my meal off of ticket but didn't offer to prepare me anything else or try to get me any hot food to replace the cold food. So I left hungry. Not what I made reservations a week ahead to experience.

Weeknight dinner was perfect at McEwens. Our table was quiet enough for good conversation but not isolated—as requested. The food was beautifully presented and delicious (two of us had the salmon, one chose the sea bass), and Robert was the perfect waiter. We loved the atmosphere and food at McEwens and will definitely go there again next time we’re in Oxford.

We dine here very often and sadly our recent experience was very disappointing and we will not be back. We were a party of five and were seated in the front near the window and were virtually forgotten by our server. Did not refresh water and biscuits. The food was a huge disappointment! The dinner servings have shrunk to appetizer portions. My daughter and I each ordered the duck. My serving was twice the size as hers. We brought our mother to dinner raving about your restaurant and frankly were embarrassed. St Leo, City Grocery and the Snack Bar will be our go to places. We won’t be back.
