All round very good....but very, very noisy for brunch. We would go back but if your looking to have quiet to moderate noise atmosphere this is not the place for you during brunch.

Both bottles of wine we ordered were not in stock although they were listed as available. Got stuck having to pay for a bottle $20 more than the one we were looking at originally. Menu needs to be updated to reflect availability unless this is a practice don’t on purpose.

The service was remarkable from the first moment. Every cocktail and dish from charbroiled oysters to dessert (pot de crème was heavenly) was so delicious. Main entrees included turkey (this was a Thanksgiving menu) and large pork chop with seasonal vegetables. We moved to the area a few days before Thanksgiving and this meal felt very special. We cannot wait to go back.

Saw the Chef on Bobby Flay and thought we would give it a try. We came down from Ohio to visit family and made reservations a month in advance.

Our server, Michael, was great. He made us feel very welcomed and was helpful with menu suggestions. We ordered several different appetizers and small plates to be able to cover as much of the menu as possible.

The food was good but not the best we have had. Scallops were seared on one side but were cold in the middle. It was an odd sensation biting into them. The seasoning was very salty.

The crab cake had a fishy smell but the taste was good and not fishy at all. The Gnocci with crawfish was very good. The Brussels Sprouts were fantastic. We wished the raw oysters would have come with traditional cocktail sauce and horseradish rather than the vinaigrette.

My wife ordered one of the drink specials. They brought it out 4 times and every time it was different. Apparently the bartender is a bit inconsistent. And by different, I mean some were vodka when others were tequila.

We had the apple crumble for dessert and it was out of this world! Despite being stuffed already, we couldn’t put our spoons down.

As for atmosphere, it was nice and intimate. It was a cold night and the front door kept sticking open, causing the table next to us to complain, but we were comfortable.

Overall, we enjoyed the experience and would recommend to others but there are some minor issues yet to be ironed out.

The presentation was beautiful. The hostess was excellent and seated us when we were late. Unfortunately the food we ordered was okay but not worth the price. My sister ordered a drink, didn’t drink it, and the waiter didn’t ask why. The pastry for the oyster patty was undercooked. The scallops were undercooked. I normally wouldn’t write a bad review but for the price the food should have been amazing

I made a reservation for a nice Sunday brunch with my daughter. We arrived 10 minutes early. The hostess was extremely rude and tried to seat us at the bar next to a busy doorway. She didn’t ask if that would be ok, even though there were a couple empty tables. Her next best offer was the opposite end of the bar near the kitchen entrance. So, on a beautiful sunny day, we sat with our backs to the entire restaurant and band, staring at the cooks. We would’ve waited for a table but that was never offered. The food is good but the greeter should be fired. Don’t spend $30-40pp to sit at the bar and not be able to talk with your guest. They are more worried about not taking up a table just for 2 than your dining experience. Will not be back.

Omg they have upped their Game! This was the best meal at Oxlot yet! Super well cooked food. Scallops with pesto amazing! The Frogs legs were some of the best I’ve ever had and I’m from the country! Amazing ! Crispy batter but light and perfectly cooked. Crawfish gnocchi wasn’t the best but good, crab cake with amazing sauce. Steak, and salmon were amazing but the star was a rabbit Roulade!!! Unbelievable! Then cake dessert, wow they must have stolen a 5 star pastry chef, chocolate bomb was da bomb! The S’mores were mike high and amazing taste, the creek brûlée was crazy good! Just a great meal! Thank you Oxlot 9 staff!

It’s a great place for brunch. I just wish they would forgo the music. It makes it very difficult to hear when the restaurant is busy.
The food was good. Had to send my meal back because the rice wasn’t cooked but they brought me back a new order shortly that was perfectly cooked and didn’t charge me for it. Service is always great

The entire experience was such a disappointment. The bar is extremely limited. We ordered Glenlivet scotch and they brought Macallan instead. Tasting it, the difference was clear. When we asked about it, neither the waiter nor the bartender knew there was a difference and yet tried to trick us into accepting it.

The dining room was incredibly noisy and it was impossible to have a conversation with anyone else at the table. Although billed as a fine dining restaurant experience, there are no tablecloths on the tables.

The menu is very limited and the food prepared differently, but not better. The crab cake was not a crab cake at all. It was actually a blob of crab meat with herbs that were unrecognizable and made it inedible. Perhaps it was a southwestern flaire with cilantro and chipotle, but clearly did not work for the dish and ruined the crabmeat.

The cheese plate was served with bread that had been soaked in some sort of liquid on the tray that made the bread doughy and wet. There were more sides on the cheese plate such as cauliflower, rather than an actual variety of cheeses.

The rabbit dish had no defined rabbit taste whatsoever. Instead there was a ball of unrecognizable ham mixed with what the restaurant described as rabbit, but no flavor of rabbit existed. Wierd.

The filet mignon was over cooked and tough. It made me wish we had celebrated with a Gallagher's steak just down the street.

Sometimes an interesting new viewpoint on a dish is amazing, but no such moment existed. Do not waste your time or money.

The dessert was beautiful. Large white and puffy. Unfortunately, it was only fluff. After digging to find the chocolate, one spoonful was enough.

Our group will never return to such mediocrity. Don't bother.

The most amazing food in all of New Orleans- north or south shore! The chef is phenomenal and each dish is not like anything you have ever had before! The Tasso in the stuffed rabbit is homemade and you can taste the difference! The bone marrow is unbelievable and the crawfish gnocchi is so good that after you eat it, you seriously want to drink the juice out of the bowl. My favorite dessert was the toffee creme brûlée, closely followed by the chocolate dome! The campfire really does taste like a smoked campfire s’more with all the Smokey gooey ness. I highly recommend this restaurant and it’s food!
