Wonderful dining experience except for the noise level. It’s a smaller space and there were a couple large groups that seemed to be competing for the blue ribbon noise making award. However, Once they left, it was very comfortable. I won’t hold that against the restaurant. We will most definitely be coming back!

From wait staff to food, all was outstanding. Three of us ordered 3 different appetizers, which were ample and delicious, and shared one entree (divine), and two desserts (scrumptious). PLENTY for us and we got to try so many different items.

The food here is well worth the price. You might pay the same at an equivalent restaurant in Washington DC but the food at Oxlot9 is absolutely superior. I highly recommend this restaurant to foodies. And the ambiance is a perfect blend of upscale with a comfortable casual feel, although business casual is the dress code. My wife and I love this place.

Oxlot is so consistent with service and quality of food. Honestly, the IG post of a dessert is what brought us in and it did not disappoint. If they have the blackberry and fig cake with goat cheese ice cream available, DO NOT PASS IT UP!

This place seemed like a great choice, at first. The service was outstanding and the drinks were exceptional. The only down side was that my wife's entree' which was fish was uncooked. The fish was partially cooked on the outside but the inside of the fish was raw. This is dangerous and should now be considered acceptable. They replaced the entree with another dish and did not charge us but is that had been served to a child that didn't know better it could have been dangerous.

From the drinks, to the appetizers, main course meals, and dessert, everything was fantastic. With all that, the bill was still well under $100 for two people. I highly recommend Oxlot 9. I had the stuffed rabbit as my main course, and it was exceptional.

Excellent food, service and ambiance. If you are going to pay for a nice meal, you want it to be as delicious and we’ll-served as Ox Lot delivers! Also, the mixed drinks are the best on the north shore with their craft cocktails mixed by expert barmen. I can’t say enough about how perfect our meal was.

We had 3 small plates and they were all wonderful. We usually try Crab Cakes everywhere we go and these were very good, one of the top that we have had. The Scallops were seared perfectly and the pumpkin sauce was delicious. Out third small plate was the Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps and it was a wonderful refreshing dish.

Lively brunch with friends at Oxlot 9. From tasty cocktails to the marvelous meal. I had frittata with lobster and brie. Delish. We enjoyed a leisurely brunch without being rushed by our very attentive server. The live music duo was present but not overbearing. All in all it was a wonderful experience.

The entire experience was fabulous. The wait staff was very attentive but not in a bad way. It is the type of service that does not get in your way, so you can enjoy your experience.

My wife and I went to the restaurant for her birthday dinner. Could not have been much better, and our waiter, Mike, was accommodating and knew the menu very well. Best fine dining experience we’ve had on the North Shore.

We arrived an hour before our reservaton and sat outside to enjoy the spring concert we got a table outside and had to wait about 20-30 to get the waitress to get us a drink so after being there for a little over an hour we got 2 drinks each (the 2nd one coming when our reservation was ready). Then when we got inside we waited another 30 min to get served another drink. There was only one bar tender inside to serve everyone at the bar plus the whole restaurant. That is not good.
The food was disappointing half good and the other half was bad.
Broussel sprouts, tuna small plate and creme brulee- GOOD
Bone Marrow app, Filet was NOT GOOD.
We have been this oxlot a few times an each time were just not impressed :(
FYI we had a table for 10 and we all felt the same way.

Our fav restaurants are Gallaghers and Dakotas and we compared everything to those 2 restaurants. and although we like yalls atmosphere and the service was pretty good it jut didnt compare

The best restaurant on the north shore. I love to eat at the small tables outside. Drinks are great. Dinner was outstanding. I had the crab cakes and drum. My husband had the the frog legs and rabbit. everything was wonderful. Service is exceptional. Cory is great, very knowledgeable and attentive. I have eaten here about 4 times and it is my favs...I think Oxlot 9 is very on par with La Petite Grocery in NO where the chef won a James Beard award....yep, that good.

Delicious food with creative combinations. Still wish Gulf oysters, rather than the farm-raised West Virginia variety, were used. The lobster ravioli small plate was TOO small, ha! Four of those yummy little “pillows” were too few to share. Would love more actual berries in the strawberrry shortcake. Really happy to know about Catahoula Common beer. In general, a memorable eating experience!
