Great place for a Thursday night date.

Couldn't get over the $5 old-fashion. My date ordered a blueberry and vodka concoction that comes out in a mason jar.

I ordered half dozen grilled oysters for an app and the mussels for man course. My wife had the brussels as an app and the tuna tartare.

Great everything.

Couldn’t get a reservation for 5 people through Open Table (no, 9pm won’t work). Couldn’t even call because they don’t open until 5pm

The reservation was at 12:30 pm. We were shuttled to a bar to wait. We were not seated until about 1:10. Then only after I went back to the waiter to ask if they had forgotten about my party of 2. The wait of 40 minutes to be deated despite having a confirmed reservation is unacceptable.

The noise level was so high I could not hear my companion. The music which is mediocre just makes it even louder
My tacos were okay . They did come as requested without bronzing spice but the fish was overcooked . Two weeks ago they were great.
Corey ‘s service was first rate as usual

Great restaurant. Varied menu with many appetizer and small plate choices. Good drinks. We had the caipirinha cocktail , and lettuce wrapped pork belly to start from the happy hour menu. We dined on stuffed quail, royal red shrimp and a pasta dish which were small plates but were good sized portions. The quail was outstanding. Prices are very reasonable. We will come back on our next trip here.

We visited for the first time last week and the food and service were great. Only issue was loud group next to us. Maybe rearrange seating to give more space to individual tables or add some soundproofing. We will be back.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday again this year at OxLot 9. The food was great and the service was really good. We were a party of 8 and I honestly can’t report a single thing that I think could have been better that evening. I recommend this restaurant.

We usually always eat at Ox Lot 9 so we can walk to the restaurant from our room.

The food was ok but the place is just way too noisy. I felt the price was too high for the overall experience as well.

Very pleased with our dining experience. Food was terrific, in the selection of ingredients, taste and presentation. Corey, our waiter, did an outstanding job, even though he had to cover a number of tables and the seats overlooking the cooking line. Only drawback was the noise from the large party seated by the bar. A shame that people do not know how to behave in a fine dining restaurant.

I received a gift card and was hesitant to try the restaurant due to me being such a picky eater. I chose to try brunch due to the breakfast options. I ordered the shrimp and grits...they were absolutely amazing. The service was great. It was busy and the wait time wasn’t long. I will definitely be back!

The noise level was horrible.
Felt like I was yelling the entire time I was talking to my date across the table.
The noise level over shadowed the entire experience.

Wow, my first experience was so amazing. I made reservations on Opentable and when I arrived Ryan had my table ready for me. Stephanie was my waitress and she checked on my table plenty of times and made sure everything was perfect. Stevie made me the most delectiable beignets! It was truly a treat. I ended up choosing the breakfast bowl and I did not make a mistake. The pork belly was so tender and tasty, the veggies had a nice crunch and was overall refreshing and delicious! I couldnt have had a better experience, will definitely go back!

Chargrilled oysters were a bit undercooked and did not have enough garlic and butter. chicken tamale is very good, but masa could be reduced. Stuffed quail was unbelievably good. the highlight of the small plates meal.
We will be back.

Brunch food and apps were great! Only negative was it took a long time to get our drinks after ordering them.... even for wine. Order your drinks midway through drinking your current one.

We joined old friends for a holiday Sunday brunch before New Years and were not disappointed. We enjoyed a festive, stellar meal complete with a jazz ensemble to creat even more ambiance.
The frog leg appetizer should not be missed as well as the Shrimp Grits and the Crab Cake Benedict. The friendly Service Staff were professional and executed like you would expect in a tier one restaurant.
Highly recommended!

Great meal as always. The menu changing seasonally ensures that our experience evolves each time we go. Without question, this is the best restaurant on the Northshore and would undoubtedly stand out against the crowd in New Orleans. We had a blast. We'll be back.
