The service was completely outstanding, I LOVE my Ribeye, lentils & corn. The food was unique, delicious, and my girl & I will come back again!
What a great experience. Our server Lizette was awesome and Mark the GM is tremendous. The food was great but it is the service that makes an experience.
Really fun date night spot! Meatball and shrimp app was so good!
Amazing! Our first time. Looking forward to returning
Birthday Dinner with a great friend. This was my first dinner out since COVID and social distancing and outdoor dining was crucial. We were given the perfect outdoor table away from others so I was very pleased. The server however was not as respectful of space and when she coughed simply said “that’s what the mask is for”. The service was uncomfortably rushed, pasta arrived before we even tasted the bread (which was delicious). All food was wonderful . I was aware that we had a time limit on the table: the reservation stated we had 2 hours. We essentially were rushed out in one hour and 48 minutes despite an empty patio. Fat Ox has been a favorite restaurant of mine and I will be back. My hope is that the service end is worked out soon.
We ate dinner on the patio. It was a lovely experience, food was great, and our service was fabulous.
Our server was so kind. Also I left my credit card there for two days and they kept it for me and also required to show an ID before they would give it up. It was the best and I was traveling from out of the state so I would’ve been in trouble without it. Thank you so much for your great service
Great Food, Excellent Service
Nice outdoor seating. The food and service were great, as usual. So glad they have reopened
Amazing as always!
We sat on the patio to enjoy the re-opening of Fat Ox. What a fantastic evening! The service and food were impeccable!
We started with the charcuterie and cheese board -It was so tasty and there were so many things to choose from. The fresh home-made pasta is out of this world and a 100% must order. We finished with the scallops - and again, they were fantastic. They were perfectly cooked.
Such great memories and we will be back soon!
Our dinner was wonderful and our service was great. They four of us shared meatballs, procsiutto, ceasar salad, cacio e pepe, paparadelle and the roasted chicken- Yes it was a ton of food. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because 1 of our 2 orders of cacio e pepe wasn't very good but the one the husbands were sharing was fantastic. All of the other food was delicious and we can't wait to go back. Don't underestimate the roasted chicken here. It is one of the best chicken dishes I've ever eaten and the presentation is unique.
So excited my favorite restaurant is back! Thanks Fat Ox for an incredible dining experience - per usual.
Fantastic great people thank you 😊 the food was great performance was perfect taste excellent, timely perfect experience you must try to see exactly 💯 experience is!!!!wow 👏..
We dine out a lot. Fat Ox is my favorite. Glad they are open again. Aggressive menu really delivers. Wait staff is amazing. Bartenders are the best.
Hoping happy hour returns
Food was exquisite!!!!
I’ve been here several times and never disappointed. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. Food is outstanding and the drinks are so tasty. Love this place!!!
AS ALWAYS,THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND OUR SERVER WAS VERY ATTENTIVE!
Always great service and drinks! Super excited to have you all back open for business. Missed you!
Fat Ox should be top of your list if you're in Scottsdale. Chef Matt Carter and team deliver a trip through Italy oft not seen, and rarely experienced in such strikingly chic digs. Top to bottom, Fat Ox delivers genuine hospitality, polished execution, and some of the very best food in town.
What a wonderful first night in AZ!! Scott our server was so informative and we cannot wait to go back when they reopen. ‘11 Chianti Classico was out of control !!
Their Prime Ribeye is as good if not better than at all the top steak houses in Scottsdale.
Tremendous food and the service at the bar was great!
Amazing service as always engaging and above and beyond attentive for service. Great food and vibe. Clean high quality and great food.
I am from Denver and I always make sure to eat here when I’m in town. They remember me and my food allergies. The service is fantastic and the food is better than that!
Absolutely loved the food and service. Hope to see them open in the fall!
This was one of our most disappointing dining experiences of our recent memory. We have heard good things about Fat Ox from friends, and have wanted to dine there for quite a while. An opportunity finally arrived, the menu looked appealing, so we ventured in despite the COVID-19 dampener. The restaurant is very nice inside, and the bar is particularly appealing. We had the opportunity to sit and eat at the bar, and in hindsight, I regret not taking that option because the service we received in the dining room was poor. Our server stumbled through the menu like it was his first night, and the food runner nearly tossed our food on the table without clearing previous courses. It was like eating at a cheap diner. The food was also disappointing, and based on a price/value analysis it ranks low on our chart. We are not restaurant novices. We own a successful restaurant in California, and we dine out frequently. We did ate restaurant days before the it was scheduled to close for the remainder of summer, and the server shared that the restaurant was engaged in a lease issue with the landlord. Regardless, the experience dashed our expectations, and was a huge disappointment.
Amazing and original and well worth the prices comparable to other fine restaurants in the area
So many wonderful tastes and textures
Excellent food and service. Treated us so well. Would come back!
Amazing food. Larry was amazing! :)
Fabulous in every wai
It was Arizona restaurant week and Fat Ox had a very nice menu. It was also my 65th birthday and with limited choices of things to do, we decided to try the Fat Ox. I’m glad we did.
The food is unbelievable! Excellent wine, as well. Service was great - very attentive. This place is perfect for a date or a smaller group. It's pricey, so save it for a special occasion.
The food is unbelievable and the service always over the top. The pastas are great for sharing and the Caesar Salad is always fantastic.
Apparently we were sent to the ‘old person room’. We were one of two couples in isolation while the front of the house seating was vibrant and felt like a restaurant. Not what we expected.
Awesome! We will be back !
The service was absolutely terrible! we went in to celebrate our friends birthday the servers were standing around just chitchatting ...we waited forever we ended up asking for a check after we had our first glass of wine and we left because we had such a poor service !we will never return to this establishment again !they comped our wine even after we complain the manager never even had the decency to come over and talk to us horrible experience
Our server was incredible and very knowledgeable. The food was so unique and served beautifully, and everything was delicious!
Such a cute spot the decor was modern yet comfortable. Our server was so sweet and happy to explain everything and the food omg. I got the pasta and scallops both were so delicious. I will definitely be coming back to try more
Always great food, friendly yet efficient service. Definitely a “go to” place!
