Fax Ox is a must do restaurant in Scottsdale! The atmosphere, service, wine and food are ALL top notch! Our server Tory and the entire staff went the extra mile to make sure we were well taken care of. We requested an outdoor table and were extremely delighted with the experience. Every detail, even an outdoor fan with a built-in air conditioner kept the temperature comfortable outside. We will be back!

My kids took me to dine at the Fat Ox for Mother’s Day. The meal was delicious starting with the wine, appetizers, through the main course and desserts.
I’ll look forward to going back again soon.

My husband, son and I came here for Mother’s Day dinner. Every bite was delicious! The service very attentive. My scallops were superb. My son’s tenderloin was so tender and full of flavor. My husband had the tomahawk pork chop, very tasty and a lot of meat on the bone. One of the best dinners I’ve had out. We’ll be back, hopefully soon!

SPECTACULAR! Absolutely the most delicious........everything. Chef Carter is truly gifted and the food shows. Service is spot on, professional, attentive without being in hover mode. The price tag is steep but, worth every penny. You truly get what you pay for and here you're paying for amazing cuisine!

Wonderful meal from start to finish. Love the table side Caesar salad. The pasta dishes are all wonderful, but the 25 layer lasagna is my favorite. The chocolate tart is a wonderful dessert. Huge variety of Italian wines with a knowledgeable som to fit the wine to your taste. Outstanding after dinner drinks. One of our favorite spots.

We came for a business dinner. And we all left impressed, full, and looking forward to returning the next time we are in town. The menu had a little something for everyone, from our pescatarians to our steak lovers. Every plate was wiped clean by our hungry and grateful group.

Very hard to choose what to eat because everything sounds amazing. For the two of us we decided to get the mozzarella and tableside Caesar salad and had pasta and scallops for entrees all shared. We finished with a chocolate tart and left satisfied, but not overly full. Everything was absolutely delicious and service was fantastic.

The first two courses were amazing, especially the pastas. We had a couple of those, and both were very good. The main course I would just completely skip next time. I was not impressed with the filet, the sauce just was not very good, and it was not cooked correctly. I ordered med-rare and I'm alright with under cooked steak but it came out cold in the middle. Service was the most disappointing, we waited for almost 10 minutes after being seated to get water, then the waiter came over and asked if we knew what we wanted. We had never been and had to ask him to explain their menu and what the specials were. Shouldn't have to do that at a restaurant like this. The manager did notice and came over to offer a comped pasta, which was much appreciated, but again shouldn't have to happen at a restaurant like this.

Great service! Our wait staff was well educated as to the nuances of the food preparation and wine pairings.
The food was very good, but the portions were small for the price.
As a first course I had the squid ink pappardelle with calamari and shrimp, which tasted great, but the shrimp were tiny salad sized and only served three, likewise with the three teeny tiny calamari rings.
It seemed like they skimped on the seafood and for 18.00 I expected a real portion.

Can lighting strike twice?
We went here for the first time about two months ago and enjoyed so much we decided to come back for our anniversary. It was spectacular again! Got the same waiter and I think it made all the difference.
I’m a meat guy but try the Vegetarian ravioli.- amazing
Mussels are killer
Raghu is killer
Utter lettuce salad is awesome
Still think the Amereto gelato is the best

Food was great, service was chaotic. Forgotten plates, mix ups. Waiter could not recommend any wine choices because he said he did not drink. Would love this place to succeed. They need to tighten up the service.

This place was incredible. My sister and I spent a weekend in Scottsdale to celebrate her birthday. Fat Ox came recommended by her friend and the concierge at JW Marriott Camelback. We both enjoyed the Barrel Aged Manhattan off their cocktail menu, and it was wonderful. The Table side Caesar and Smoked Parsnip Ravioli are must haves. The Garganelli was good but a little rich compared to the delicate and flavorful Ravioli. The Burrata and Affogato also did not disappoint. Service was top notch and friendly. Highly recommend.

Wonderful early evening in the lounge at Fat Ox! Enjoyed several pasta tastings, various cocktails, and other delightful dishes during the Apertivo Hour. The service was phenomenal - shout out to Sunna! We very much enjoyed our time here, taking in the early evening activity, the busy bartenders, all the diners coming and going through the large glass walls... will be back next time we're in Phx/Scottsdale!

Have been to this restaurant on many occasions but this last visit was truly outstanding. The food is visually magnificent and the taste equals the presentation. Service to me equals perfection as well as the atmosphere. The scallop dish was areal treat, the Caesar salad was wonderful and u can’t forget that Meyer lemon tart which one can only dream about so leave room for ending delights.

This was a very classy restaurant with a modern decor. There were lots of choices on the menu. I have a food allergy and the waiter was particularly attentive to my needs; I really appreciated it. The atmosphere is very lively and somewhat noisy - this was on a busy Friday night. Great food and wine list. We highly recommend this restaurant!
