Food here is excellent, as is the service. Value is excellent considering quality and portion! Make a reservation if you want a booth or you will not get one...cocktails were good and wine prices fair--this is a favorite when I visit family in Oxnard.

Yummy food and nice waitstaff, but d*mn, if you’re not an exclusive regular (I’m unsure what the qualifications are for this club, I’ve been there 5+ times and I’m not in it), you don’t get seated at your reservation time, you don’t receive timely service, your food comes out last... we had a 7:30 res for 2, we ordered 2 appetizers, one shared entree, 1 bottle of wine. We arrived at 7:30, a booth was cleared for us, but after 15 minutes at the host stand, looking at our cleared booth for 12min, I had to ask if we could sit down. We were told sure, they just have to set up the table for us— all that was added to the table was app plates and silverware. At the table, Service was sweet, but spotty. We didn’t get our check until 9:40, 15 minutes after our plates had been cleared. We could see the whole restaurant from our booth— multiple larger groups who arrived after us received excellent and timely service, lots of personal conversations with waitstaff, ate, paid and left before we received our shared entree. Patrons and staff were gathered at the host stand chatting and blocking kitchen access, which is maddening to watch while growing more hangry waiting for an empty table to be set, or for apps, or for ordering dinner. It’s just crazy to me. This place could be so much more if it committed itself to excellent service for ALL patrons. Rant over, but jeeze. It wouldn’t take a lot to make customers feel less excluded.

We had a wonderful dinner, the staff was so helpful. There was a problem with our reservation and they put us at the bar with a drink and some bread while they worked it all out perfectly! I had the prime rib with a wedge salad the meat was seasoned perfectly. My husband had the special Wagu beef with the clam chowder he loved it. We will definitely be back!

The food was amazing.! I brought me staff to Hozy’s for our company Christmas dinner. The experience was NOT what I was hoping for. They were out of Prime Rib which we came there to try on a recommendation. Another item in the menu and the cobbler desert. It was only 7pm when we arrived for our reservation.

The waitress that served our table that night was very inattentive. We had a reservation. Our table was not set up. Once we were seated it took a good 30min for our waitress to send someone over to bring the rest of our table settings and bring the wine we has ordered when she sat set hello after the hostess seated us. I observed the other server Nd she was very attentive to her tables. No other tables were left unattended but ours. Our waitress only attended to our table after I grabbed her attention and insisted on the bottle of wine we ordered 30min early and complained. I tipped 20% only because it’s the Christmas season, not because of her service. It was very poor.

We love this restaurant. It's a little off the beaten path, but has excellent food and is a good value. Every dinner entree that we've tried over the past few years has been great. This last Saturday we had halibut and ravioli for entrees and they were very tasty. The peach cobbler for dessert was one of the best cobblers that we have tasted. Very nice cozy atmosphere and excellent service adds to the enjoyment of the food.

Amazing EVERYTHING... A BEST kept secret in a town with little culinary choices, this Standout brings us back every week. The quality meets the price handily, we enjoyed 4 courses for no more than lesser quality rivals by far. We are in love with the Chef and all his Culinary Delights delivered lovingly by the Ahhhhsome Peeps of all things supporting the team to make our experience exceptional- Thank you Hozy’s 💃🍸🍽

My son and I had the best dinner ever!! Our waitress Christina was amazing. All the employees were a 10!!! I cannot remember her name but there was a lady with blonde hair in a ponytail and she was great as well. They made us feel like family. We go there quite often for breakfast on Saturdays and Sunday’s and the food is always perfection. I will definitely recommend this to everyone including all my customers at the bank. Thank you all for giving us a great, fun time. 👍👍👍

We have been regular patrons of Hozys for years and just over the last year to year and a half the time to get served has become way too long. Our appetizers came out fairly quickly but our entree took a very long time. We will continue to join you and your wonderful staff in the future. Thank you Larry Schuss
