One of the WORST experiences ever. Been here numerous times for business and personal reasons. Took 2 hours to get so called “special” steak this evening. Mgr if he is one was an pretentious A. Great place. Perhaps bad luck. Tried to make up for it with a cold pasta on the house.
We had a wonderful dinner, we asked for a quiet spot and we got one, service was fantastic. I live nearby and am thrilled we tried it!
Wonderful food and service. Careful attention to dietary needs without sacrificing quality or taste. Everything was delicious and perfect. This was our second visit and we will return.
It was great!
Fat Ox has been on my list of restaurants to try for over a year. It was even better than I had anticipated.
Our server, Holly, was excellent and wonderful.
The food was creative and delicious.
The ambiance was ordinary.
It is very expensive for what we got.
We ordered the $68 20oz ribeye cut in 6 pieces. We only ate 2 pieces and asked to have the remaining boxed up. It never came back and we didn’t remember until we were home.
Lively Saturday night at fat ox. Packed bar and restaurant. As crowded as it was bartender was very aware of customers and excellent at multitasking. Prosecco was offered to customers waiting for a table. Service was good. It was expected though that we order everything at once so server gave us a little time to that figure out. Food was very good. Overall a good experience in regards to food and service
We absolutely love this restaurant. We sat at a high top table in the bar area and our server Brittany was outstanding!! We will be back soon. Amazing food!!
Wonderful service. Good food and drinks!
Great service from Ben and his team. We sat outside which doesn't have any cooling mist. Other than unrelenting heat the noise was less than expected. And meal was impeccable. Generous portions and cooked to perfection.
Exceeded our expectations for a wonderful evening with friends. Will recommend this to any of our friends who visit Scottsdale!
It was great !
Truly outstanding restaurant on every level. The menu is inventive. The service attentive and the atmosphere is lively. The only criticism I could make is that the music is fairly loud and somewhat "techno" (not my taste). We each had an appetizer/salad, pasta a dessert. Skipped the "main course" and we felt satisfied.
Food was ok, nothing memorable. We got the $55 sunset 3 course menu, with oxtail and scallop. Service is good and our server was attentive. Cocktail was subpar I think I can do better. Our neighboring guests order the same 3 course dinner and they couldn’t finish most of the food. For the price, I had higher expectations. We would try something else around the area next time and won’t be coming back to this place.
Hands down one of the best meals we’ve had in AZ. Thank you Ashley, Shelby, and Bryan for the hospitality. We’ll be back very soon!
We tried Fat Ox for my husband’s birthday and it is honestly the best mea l we ever had. We are dying to go back and try more! Good food, service, and atmosphere!!
We felt the prices for your food is high versed other choices in the area, our waiter seemed very indifferent with us when we didn’t buy a bottle of wine. We ate at Ocean 44 the night before and had an awesome engaged waiter and our bill was less! Not coming back.
It was super loud almost club like- didn’t quite expect t that. Our food was pretty in presentation- super bland in flavor. Pretty disappointing. Wine list was awesome though. The restaurant itself is pretty but with the other amazing options in Scottsdale we won’t be coming back unfortunately.
Visiting here from the PNW. Had to make reservations, as it is restaurant week and a holiday weekend. We were sat on the front patio. Which was great for us who never see sun or hot weather... Others might disagree. But I was perfectly comfortable.
Hospitable. Welcoming. No masks. Totally different than what we are used to in Washington. In fact, I saw only one staff member wearing one, and maybe 6 other guests as they meandered in. It is certainly very different here. It was clean though.
Service. Good. Attentive, but not over bearing. Wine. $50 for the bottle we got. Italian wine, so I'm not complaining. I ordered the fish, and a side of polenta. Polenta, 200% 10 stars. I would eat it every day. Fish, solid 4 stars. I'm from the Seattle area, so fish really has to wow me. The whipped ricotta we shared, hubs said 4 stars, I said 5, I like cheese, and the flavor profile was so unique. I'd eat it all day... He ordered half a chicken and lentils (instead of polenta) and the pasta that had huckleberry in it... I'm GF but had a few nibbles of that pasta. Homemade, Al dente, flavors were rich and satisfying. Chicken with the caramel onion was bright, and rich. Lentils were flavorful. I loved them, as did he.
Ambiance was great. Good music, nice decorations.
Solid 4 for us.
Wow what an incredible meal! Came for Arizona Restaurant Week. Mark the sommelier was very knowledgeable, and helped us choose a fantastic bottle of wine to pair with our meal. Great ambiance, food, and hospitality. Can't wait to return!
They make their own pasta and cooked it al dente which was great. Extensive wine selection. Service was good. Will definitely return if we are craving Italian pasta in the area. Pistachio ice cream was done well and tasted like the ones in Bronte. Only drawback was their version of tiramisu made with nuts. Big no no for Italian food purists.
I had the good fortune to return to Fat Ox a week after attending for Restaurant Week to try other items on their menu. After advising them beforehand that it was our anniversary they promptly congratulated us when we walked in (a nice touch I thought) and showed us to our table. As always the food and ambiance were excellent, (it is much quieter and relaxing outside) and the waiter Paolo was very attentive. Service was prompt, glasses of water were always filled and everything was delicious. They even brought out an anniversary desert to celebrate our special occasion, so a special thank you for the kind gesture. Overall, a wonderful experience and one I highly recommend!
It was restaurant week and we have been here before. Amazing and delicious options and delicious food and fantastic service. Rachael was the best. She gave amazing service and was personable and fun. KEEP HER!!!!
We went to Fat Ox with one other couple to celebrate anniversaries. As it happens, it was during restaurant week and so we chose to dine from that menu. We thought the menu was very well rounded with some thing for everyone. Our waiter was extremely efficient, he spaced our courses out perfectly. Very good wine list by the glass and the bottle. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. When you first walk in, the bar area was totally full and very energetic vibe, I’m assuming it was happy hour and the patrons were totally enjoying the experience. We will return to this restaurant.
Another fabulous meal form Fat Ox. This was our first date night out since the pandemic, and it was AZ Restaurant Week. Also the first day over 100º (at restaurant location) for us this year. Arrived at 5 PM, the bar was packed and lively. The food was fantastic, and our server Rachel, was top notch. I also had the Mediterranean Cocktail... I'll have to try an make that at home now! By the time we left around 7 PM, the restaurant was full. I'm so happy that this restaurant made it through this past 18 months! Looking forward to our next visit.
Food and service were good but the hostess forgot about our table outside and let us wait for an hour
Superb restaurant, great ambiance, excellent bar choices and the food was divine. Check-in was great and the server knowledgeable and attentive without being overly so. Menu had a lot of choice, and there were many choices I could have made - next time!
Only comment is that the food server was not as skilled as I expected for a high end restaurant. Did not take away from overall enjoyment, but did not match the quality of everything else. Easily coached.
Highly recommend for any special occasion.
Extremely overpriced and service was pathetic
Have been wanting to Fat ox for a long time, glad I finally did! Will be coming a lot now
Fantastic experience! Great service and phenomenal food. Will definitely be back!
We went for Arizona Restaurant Week as a way to try out new restaurants. The food was amazing and a great value for the specialty price. Our waiter was great and had a good wine recommendation. Overall was a great experience and we plan on going back.
As always, a fabulous evening out with extraordinary food. We were seated on the patio and it was such a wonderful evening. Our waitress was charming and provided excellent service throughout our meal. Always a warm greeting and it is our favorite restaurant in town.
Glad my wife convinced me to finally try this place. The atmosphere was great. The food was on point. Our server Joel was awesome. He GETS IT and knows how to interact with guests. We will definitely be back.
It’s a great experience. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing food and service. Staff are extremely pleasant, attentive and make great recommendations.
We’ve been here before for happy hour and wanted to try dinner. We had dinner during Restaurant Week. We loved the ambience and the service was very good. The food was hit or miss. The steak was chewy and grisly - I think it was sirloin. The chicken was decent. The desserts were not very tasty. Overall, we don’t think we will be back.
First time dining at the Ox and this is one of my new favorite go to places! Great service, cool interior, and the food was outstanding! Love this place!
Amazing atmosphere, service and food. I will definitely be coming back here.
Great restaurant week menu, very good selections.
Our waitress was amazing! Very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Will definitely come back.
Celebrating an occasion and we decided to try Fat Ox for the evening. Everything was exceptional from the service, food, drinks and atmosphere. We will definitely be back for the next special occasion!
Victoria was our server and she was awesome! Super attentive, very informative and 10/10 would recommend. The food was incredible, the drinks were delicious and I would 1000% go back!
