    Went for Afternoon Tea and very impressed. We’ve done these at some of the other common venues that do these. Was very impressed with the selection of food, teas and optional extras. In comparison, the price was per person was comparable but the food better in quality and variety than the others. We were told it was one of the first times they’re offering this, so hopefully it picks up. Would be our top choice in the city for doing this again.

    Everything was delicious, especially the briche and brie "small plate" we started with. I was a little disappointed that only the matcha version of the creme brulee was available (I would have preferred the standard creme brulee) but the match creme brulee was very tasty also.

    Lovely, intimate dining experience. The service was great, and we loved that we could see into the kitchen at the chefs making our food. The best part of the evening was the food - wow, it was incredible! We could tell that the Head Chef really put his everything into his food. It was beautifully prepared and plated, and it all tasted delicious! Our only complaint is that we ate too much and didn’t have room for desert! We will be back!

    This was our first time there and we will be back. Everything was terrific from pre dinner drinks through to dessert. Staff was amazing. Wheelchair access was very easy and the table they sat us at for 1 person in a wheelchair was great. A lot of times when she requests a table to accommodate a wheelchair she gets stuck in the back close to the kitchen where it can be loud. This was not the case. Everyone should eat here at least once in their lives. Shout out to the chef. He made my heart sing with his fabulous food. Thank you Oxbow for being amazing. And thank you Google for helping me find this amazing gem in Kensington.

    Our experience at Oxbow was superb! The Chef's special for the week was halibut and it was amazing. Perfectly cooked and presented. The accompanying starter and dessert were just as good. One person ordered off the regular menu (ribeye) and it was juicy, tender and full of flavour. The corn jalapeno soup is a must. We had reservations for 6:30 on a Saturday evening. We were seated promptly and it was fairly quiet while we were there. It started to pick up a bit as we were finishing up. The waitress was very helpful with wine pairing suggestions and her interactions with us added to the positive experience. Would highly recommend Oxbow looking for an elevated food experience.

    Excellent food, outstanding service. Dined here while staying at the hotel prior to a show at the Jube. My wife has some dietary restrictions and the staff here was amazing in helping her figure out what she could eat. Her meal was thoughtfully prepared and excellent. I have no restrictions and my meal was also excellent. We had to run to make our show and our server timed the whole meal so we could make it in time. Great time.

    I celebrated my birthday dinner here with my family and I was very impressed. We were greeted by the front house staff; they were very welcoming and accomodating. For starters we ordered the Ricotta Gnudi to share. The smoked duck bacon was spot on and paired very well with the pasta dish. I ordered the Oxbow Burger and the chef cooked it to my liking (medium rare). It was juicy, and packed full of umami flavour. The potato wedges were more than enough for me, but the smoked ketchup was a nice touch. Lastly for dessert I tried the Maple Pumpkin Cake. The portion size was excellent. I was surprised that the ice cream it came with wasn't overpoweringly sweet. It was subtle and a good contrast to the cake itself -- a delight to the senses. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. If youre looking for a quiet place for dining with your loved ones, I highly recommend you try Oxbow.

    It was the first time we had dined at Oxbow, and we were there to celebrate a big occasion for my husband. We could not have been more thrilled with how beautiful the whole experience was! My review is going to sound like it's littered with embellishments, but truly, it was that lovely of an experience. We had the chef's daily whim - it was possibly the best dining experience either of us have ever had! Everything was made to perfection and we were introduced to enchanting flavour combinations we did not even know existed! With a few dietary concerns, it can be a bit tricky to find a restaurant with an inclusive menu or that will respect any revisions you might need, but they were very careful and ensured we got exactly what we needed! The staff were also wonderful! Very attentive, professional, friendly, and accommodating. When my husband entered the restaurant, they came out to congratulate him! They made us BOTH feel so special the entire night, even though it was my husband's celebration. Beautiful people - please leave them generous tips!! The restaurant was pristine, and the atmosphere quiet and cozy. We now recommend this restaurant at every opportunity we get. :)

    It was interesting food, smallish portions (to be expected in a fine dining restaurant) and excellent service table side. I did find some of the hot dishes and my tea arrived a bit cold, so wondered if the dishes had been waiting in the window for a bit, but still tasty. If you're looking for something a bit different, and have the money for it, worth a visit. But thai green curry from the take out place the night before was also good, you know?

    Restaurant was good, food was delicious. Excellent chefs, they know what they are doing. Seats where very comfortable, the tables are perfect size. We had the chefs whim which on that day was a salmon main. We did a wine pairing with each course. Good experience, great staff, interesting flavors. I saw the burger come out and I really want to try that.

    The team at Oxbow made our night very special, from a signature zero-proof drink for my pregnant wife, to the chef sending a Yorkshire pudding over after they overheard us talking about the FOMO after ordering something else, but that Yorkshires are my wife’s favourite. The food was delicious and the staff warm and welcoming.

    The restaurant is lovely and the servers delightful. The chef was able to adapt the menu to suit my coeliac needs.

    Another wonderful meal at Oxbow! The amazing service and fantastic food served in a pleasant and welcoming environment are what we come back again and again for! We had the duck wings to start (amazing! you need to try these) - a favourite as always. Had an amazing tartare - creative flavours and so delicious! Enjoyed the ribeye, perfectly prepared with Yorkshire pud - a classic for a reason! The salmon was so balanced and the flavours in the dish were spot-on! This restaurant is a hidden gem - highly recommend.

    Excellent food, very accommodating for dietary restrictions. Was a little slower but expected with so few in the back and small venue.

    Every time I’ve eaten at Oxbow, I continue to be impressed by the quality of the experience. They go above and beyond to make visitors feel comfortable, by paying special attention to their guests. My good friend and I made a reservation for her 40th birthday, and without even saying anything, our server offered us a complimentary cocktail (mocktail as we weren’t drinking alcohol) and dessert to celebrate the occasion. We really appreciated the effort they made to welcome us during our visit. The food is outstanding and the service is really one of a kind in my eye. I can’t wait to go back.

    Not our first visit and won't be our last. The service was exceptional, friendly, and efficient. The Chef created a phenomenal menu for NYE with wine pairings that worked perfectly. I can highly recommend this venue for any occasion.

    The chef should rethink the menu. Too much carb and cheese. We were already stuffed even before having the main course. The wine pairing was nice.

    Really lovely dinner with outstanding service from all the staff. We had the beef tartare, prime rib, salmon, and crème brûlée and pistachio cheesecake with wine pairings. My salmon was a bit fishy but they remedied immediately and all the dishes were great. The wine pairings were OK but not out of this world (somewhat basic and with only a comment on the grape vs stating what the actual wines were although for context one of the pairings was the Alamo Malbec) so would just self select bottles or by the glass next time. All that said the ambiance can’t be beat here for a lovely relaxing dinner. Nice and quiet but not stuffy and again, the servers all seemed genuinely happy and gave exceptional service. Will definitely be back soon.
