                                                        Excellent late lunch date, would love to have done dinner as originally planned but Hurricane Ida put some roadblocks there. Excellent service and food despite the limited staffing due to the hurricane.

                                                        Outstanding as always. This is by far our favorite restaurant on the N'shore. We're very sad they're closing next week. They'll be dearly missed.

                                                        Sunday brunch. Wanted to do one last brunch before they closed. Very energetic vibe along with two musicians. Brunch was ok. We shared tuna tartare, the crab cake benedict & the frittata. Good drinks from the bar.

                                                        Out of first choice of wine. 2nd one was great but price charged was $20 more than on the wine menu. It was the Malbec. The rabbit was fabulous but the flounder was dry and pecans tasted stale.

                                                        excellent but chevalier chardonnay at $13 a glass a bit on the pricey side unless it was say a 2017 which I doubt- Wont stop me visiting but MAY stop me drinking which not what you want. Interested to see you alcohol/food ratio.

                                                        Always a great experience at Ox Lot 9. They, truly, have the only "New Orleans Style" Jazz Brunch on the Northshore! We're SO sad that they will be leaving this location soon.

                                                        Oxlot is one of those restaurants that is always consistent by way of quality and service. The lobster and avocado toast was new to the menu and so tasty. Small plates is definitely the way to go so you can savor more than one plate.

                                                        We were celebrating our anniversary, so we were super excited for a big night out and Oxlot 9 hit it out of the park. We ordered two appetizers, two small plates, one large plate, and one dessert and they were all outstanding. The attention to detail on every dish was so evident. We can’t wait to go back soon!!!

                                                        Ox Lot 9 has been clearly impacted by staff shortages. We had a 12:30 reservation & got seated within 8-10 minutes. We then were left waiting until 1:10 to get a drink. To the best of my assessment there was 1 waiter, 1 busboy, and the manager on the floor. Other than the kitchen staff, that was the only people working which significantly impacted how well they could serve the floor. The food was delicious and I felt bad for the employees who were doing the best that they could.

                                                        Wonderful restaurant in downtown Covington that is moving from current location without any apparent plans for new location. The food is just wonderful, menu changes and there is always something new to try. Staff is wonderful, well informed about menu. Its all concrete, tile, stone so it is noisy! Wine list a bit pricey. Overall this just a fabulous, wonderful, outstanding restaurant where we have never had any negative experience. They MUST reopen somewhere in Covington!

                                                        Despite having a reservation for our anniversary the staff and manager at Oxlot told us that they could not accommodate us and that our anniversary was irrelevant despite having received a phone call confirming our reservation. They were very rude and we will never recommend a place like this.

                                                        Everyday is a special occasion, especially when we’re at OxLot 9! It was where our first date was and is always delicious! Patrick, who we have had on more than one occasion, is awesome! We were very sorry to hear through the grapevine that they will be closing at this location. We will definitely be following them wherever they end up!

                                                        Outstanding meal as always. Best restaurant on the Northshore. Sorry they're closing - they'll be missed.

                                                        This was the first time back at Oxlot as we have moved from the north shore and are coming back. It was a pleasant surprise as the food was GREAT! It was all good except we asked for ketchup with our fries and the waiter got it and was chatting with another waiter with said ketchup on a plate while our fries were getting cold. Not cool. Otherwise exceptional.

                                                        One of the best meals ever! Preparation, presentation, service...my husband and I shared everything we ordered and agree we loved it all. We started with crab cake and Brussel sprouts (prepared crispy with garlic, bacon, goat cheese), Entrees were rabbit with sweet potato hash with cane syrup ( omg good !), grilled fish entree was flash grilled and seared to perfection, desert was creme brûlée and chocolate dome. Cocktails- old fashioned were perfect. Definitely need reservation- we seen numerous people turned away and it was a Thursday evening.

                                                        The chargrilled oysters, scallops, filet, grouper, and crepe brûlée were amazing! If you are looking for a unique dining experience for a special night out, I highly recommend Oxlot 9.
