Our server Allison was excellent! She was knowledgeable about the food and wine selections. Well-paced meal and top-quality food! Can’t wait to go back.

Food was amazing! We enjoyed ourselves :) it was nice to be able to make a reservation (I highly suggest you do). Next time we will try to request a cute quiet corner table.

It’s a small place but they do it well!

The service was excellent. Our waiter was well versed with the menu and was able to offer answers to any questions we had. He was also able to suggest a small ingredient change for one of our guests to still be able to enjoy the dish she wanted. The price point for the meals was good. The appetizers were on the small side (only good for a couple bites) but very tasty. The mains were hearty and very filling.

Went out for a special evening. Have been to Red Ox previously. Noticed the costs went up and portion of meals/deserts went down/less for what you pay for!! As well noticed the service was not as attentive as on previous occasions. Bit of a concern. Will go back again but will be a while. Wud be good as well if server(s) would ask how the meal/desert was??!! We ordered a cheese platter for desert. For 14.00 to get 2 cheeses (the hard cheese -cheddar was quite minimal) some apple jelly and crackers was high for what you get. Either add more on the platter or adjust the price downward!! Our water glasses were not topped up until end of entrees. Missing the personal touches that we’ve experienced on previous occasions. Note to all at Red Ox - you have to improve or risk losing patrons such as us.

The food & service were amazing! The scallop and Arctic char appies were delightful and the gnocchi was creamy goodness. Our waitress was fantastic. Ambience got 3 stars because the owners need to cozy up the walls of the restaurant. I don't believe there was one piece of wall decor up. It 'atmosphere' seems cold in there. And the music playlist they had on during the evening was a bit odd. However my overall experience was great. The food is on point.

Outstanding menu. Had the beef tartare, scallops, duck, beef and 2 desserts plus wine. Phenomenal flavours. Bill was almost 2 bills but if youre gonna splurge, this is the place in my opinion.

Food was terrific, i love eating at the Red Ox and i have recommended it to everyone i know. The wine list is awesome, great Scotch options. Only downside is my wife and I always end up eating at Red Ox during the winter and the draft from the door can be chilly at times.

Some of the best dishes I've ever tasted. While the food is pricey you get what you pay for. Everything was cooked, seasoned and presented perfectly. They were able to accommodate my fiancée with her gluten allergy with the regular dishes however there were very few items when it came to dessert. Even if it's frozen, I would suggest having a stand in gluten free dessert available to people with Celiac Disease. Overall a great experience and I would suggest trying their duck which was easily the best duck I've ever eaten.

The Beef!!! Get it. Love it. Leave it, but go back for more at a later date. Just good food period!

I have an extremely hard to cater for diet due to my epilepsy to avoid all seizure triggers (no dairy, gluten, corn, soy, caffeine, alcohol, refined sugars, msg, aspartame) and this was the first restaurant in Edmonton willing to try and make me a meal which I appreciate a LOT.

I have dined here before I had this brain injury and the food was outstanding already! It just shows they will go the extra mile to accommodate anyone so people with allergies, this is the place to try! Even if you don't have any allergies or food restrictions you will still thank me later when you have one of the best cooked meals this city has to offer.

We weren’t starving so only ordered a salad I share and each an entree. Salad was great.
I usually really LOVE the duck here but found it still good but not like before. It usually has a slight crisp to the exterior and a super tender and moist interior but it almost reminded me of ham this time....
I usually like the bread pudding too but found it seemed undercooked... the apples were raw and crisp and it was wet and doughy inside....and not warm at all.....couldn’t be bothered to send it back as we had babysitters and we’re on a time crunch.

Also, I felt slightly cold the whole time this visit. There was definitely a draft but I suppose it may have been the super cold weather overall...

This visit was not as good as my usually visits here. Was a bit disappointed. It’s usually a restaurant I rave about.....I’m a total foodie and this visit was not the usual 5 I would give it.

I would highly recommend the Red Ox Inn to everyone. It has an extensive wine list and the quality of food and service is A+. On a personal note; the lamb was absolutely outstanding.

A little disappointed compared to prior visits. Service inattentive. Several courses underwhelming. Maybe they were just having an off day.

On a frigid Wednesday evening, my friend and I enjoyed having the restaurant almost entirely to ourselves. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The highlight for me was the gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce. I will be back.
