Our dining experience was top-notch, from the sweet hostess who handled a special request when we arrived to the special touch from our server Stephanie of ensuring that we had wine glasses for the extra bottle that we purchased to take back to our room and everything in-between. The food was magnificent and the service was attentive, without being bothersome, and our server was knowledgeable, answering all of our questions and helping us with a few suggestions that were spot-on. The restaurant had a steady flow of business, but all of our needs felt like a priority and we appreciate that. Thank you for a wonderful anniversary experience. We will definitely be back.
Our server was having a bad day and certainly made it known to us. He was irritable and obviously did us a favor each and every time we had a question or request. Food was excellent though.
I out three for loud because I ate outside so it was right by the Main Street. Not their fault. Not sure how it is inside. Our waiter was exceptional!
Loved sitting outside. Excellent server.
1st time here with family...food was exceptional for this special occasion, service was done well. A few family members were a little uneasy to go, and when they saw no masks being used by chefs and waitstaff, they were a bit uncomfortable. All in all, a very nice experience, and creative tasty menu. Will certainly return!
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.
Wonderful creative food
Excellent dining experience, the food was delicious
Everything was fabulous!
Everything about our date night was fabulous. We can’t wait to go back!
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
Loved the food and service. Acoustics uncomfortable, too loud, but we would still go back.
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
Excellent food and service for Valentines day. My wife and I enjoyed the meal and our server was very attentive. Will definitely be back again.
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.
It’s always very good!
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.
Celebrated 5 year wedding anniversary. It was perfect!
Always amazing food and in such a beautiful location.
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.
Great food, super service, consistent quality. No complaints!!
Everything we ate was perfect. The service was excellent as well.
A friend was visiting from out of town.
Ox Lot for Sunday Brunch was the perfect place to celebrate a 50th birthday with great friends.
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!
loved it!!! I had the Amberjack and it was delicious!!
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.
It was delicious! You have to be ok with a lot of noise. The food and service were great!
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.
Never disappoints! Exceptional culinary pairings and flavors as always! Love the 5 dollar old fashions every time, too.
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.
One of the best restaurants in the greater New Orleans area. Outstanding and creative food.
Delicious food and great service! All of the staff is very friendly and accommodating!
We had a great time! Food was delicious! Will definitely be back !
